I am purchasing a used boat tomorrow. It will not be tested in the water until after I purchase it. Do I have a three day right of rescission if I purchase with cash and it's defective, or do I have to use a credit card to cancel the purchase if the boat motor doesn't run? I live in Virginia, and the boatyard selling it is in Delaware.

I'm needing a little bit of advice. This past August I was

Greetings,I'm needing a little bit of advice.This past August I was pulled over for out of date tags. Way out of date.That and I couldn't find my insurance cards (I was/am insured, just somehow didn't get the cards to the van.).No excuse for it other than pure air headedness due to “grief compounded by profound poverty”. (Long story. Way too long.)Anyrate.My goof.I appreciate the deputy for bringing it to my attention.(Holy crap! How the… UGH! Pounding head on steering wheel has evolved to pounding head on desk, with all the expected utterances about myself for such an occasion.)So, come October 19th, I've got a court date for my first traffic ticket since 1982.(Well… unless you count parking tickets… think my last one was in the 90s some time…)I thought, given my circumstances, I'd better check up on what I need to get ready for this… and found more compounding on my already compounded grief. (I'm beginning to wonder when the geologic forces will take effect… Will I become schist? That wouldn't be quite gneiss.)I can't afford a lawyer, but damn, I can't afford the minimum fine, let alone what's likely (I was shockingly out of date).Heck, just the trip up there is going to be pretty stiff on me.The jail time mentioned, even the minimum, well… forget me ever working again.Most of the jobs, that are what I'm trained to do and have experience in, have required a security clearance since 9/11.That's been bad enough since I took some years off to take care of my husband after his stroke… this?Forget it.I'm finished.There's also the little issue of my mother.The only reason I have a roof over my head and food on my plate is because I've been chauffeur and cook for my 84 year old mother since before my husband died.(My husband died when I was 55 years old. I am able bodied, given my work experience, so not able to claim disability. I have another 2 years and 5 months before I can receive survivor's benefits. i.e. My income is $0/year.)We moved here from Massachusetts (where I had a very good career going, thank you), to help out when my father's health started getting bad.Mom's never had good enough eyesight to drive.We live down here in Thayer, mass transit is not reliable, this is an area that never recovered from the Depression of the 1930s (which is why there is the “low cost of living” fairy tale down here, and why so many retirees, like my parents, are suckered into retiring down here – then dutiful kids get suckered into moving here to take care of ailing parents that are stuck… like me. There's no gravity in the Eastern Ozarks… it just sucks.).There is a definite lack of resources, and being without a reliable mode of transportation is definitely a handicap here.What's she going to do if I get stuck in jail?It's going to be a hardship on her.I don't have any of those mythical, generous, rich relatives that I keep getting told to borrow from.Never have had.Back when I was working I was about the closest the family had, and I was just barely breaking into that “middle class” thing.More like I got to poke my head in and look around for a few minutes.So…All joking aside (I have to joke. I'm getting dehydrated from crying.).I really need some advice about my best options of action and where to turn to for some (real) help, so that I can get the best possible outcome.I'm hoping you might have a few ideas?Thank you for your time,Kate Ackerly

If I am asked by CT court to have a clean record (no ticket)

If I am asked by CT court to have a clean record (no ticket) for one year, I changed my CT license to a non-compact state (states not member of Driver License Compact) license such as Michigan or an international license and received a ticket on my new license driving outside CT. Would CT court be able to find out that I receive a ticket? Are all my traffic violation records entered under my identity (name, birthday) or just under the license?

While my husband and I were separated but trying to work

While my husband and I were separated but trying to work things out and dating, he used to send me naked pictures. We were together trying to work on the marriage (or that was what I was made to believe for over 1.5 years). One day I was talking to his sister and she was asking me questions about her brother and I told her we were dating and working things out and getting together. Well she asked me for proof of those texts and some of those pictures as proof. Well, I screenshot some texts and I think I sent her lower body naked pic as proof (I didn't understand why she was asking me but I found out later on that it was because he was with another woman at the same time). Would that a considered dissemination of pictures and a felony? I did not publish them or threaten anyone with them or threaten or make them public. I was wondering if he could file charges against me for sending it to his sister? This was done over 1.5 years ago and he knew about it at that time.
