What is the federal definition in simple terms from question
What is the federal definition in simple terms from question 11f on form 4473? Committed to a mental institution or adjudicated as mentally defective? Does being classified as apoww in Texas bar you from purchasing or possessing a firearm? Was taken from job by police to mental health facility because I said "shoot myself" figure of speech. Never saw a judge. Released within 24 hours not a danger to self or others. Do I meet the criteria of not being able to purchase or possess a firearm? Can I answer "no" on form 4473 if I don't qualify? Are psyche holds entered into the federal database to bar someone from buying a gun? Is Apoww the same a s a 5150 or baker act in other states? I'm from Texas
I lawyer handled a criminal case 2-4 years ago, and I am
Hi,My name is***** lawyer handled a criminal case for me 2-4 years ago, and I am still on probation. He has been paid a great deal in full, but does not seem invested in representing me to adjust my sentence now. Requesting and helping me reduce my sentence was what he stated he would do, at this point in time. Again, he seems not to be interested in doing this. I requested a copy of our contract, which he says he cannot provide. I have a copy of the payments he received from me, which again were very substantial ($50,000), though he said he "may not have a contract for me." What can I do to ensure I get the representation I paid for, or if not, see my money refunded?Thank you,Nick
Do jails have to provide "a reasonable accommodation
do jails have to provide "a reasonable accommodation for the disabled" according to the ADA?Is PTSD, anxiety, panic in a jail setting reason to be arrested? Shouldn't police and prison/jail guards need to explain why they are asking a person to do something, esp. it the person asks them. Some of us just want to understand why we are being infringed upon? Are police allowed to leave bruises on persons at an arrest and to always charge "disturbing the peace" and "resisting arrest". It seems to me that any person that I know who has been arrested has always also had these two charges added on to whatever the "real" charge is.Does the person being arrested need to understand why they are being arrested like if a person has "Asperger's syndrome or mild ASD or a right hemispheric disorder" need to understand the reason for arrest? Do rights (Miranda) always need to be given to a person arrested?
I have to break a lease due to my mother's health. The
I have to break a lease due to my mother's health. The lease's point about getting out of the lease is very vague. I thought I had an understanding but now I'm not so sure.She's been living in a retirement community that has personalized assistance if a resident needs it. My mom has used those services but she now is no longer able to manage her diabetes, checking her blood sugar levels and giving herself her insulin. This is an issue that I was told she would have to go to a nursing home if she couldn't manage giving herself her insulin shots. Of course those comments were verbal and not in writing.She also has diastolic dysfunction which some call congestive heart failure. The fluid builds up in her legs and she has to have compression stockings which they can help with but, she needs additional compression which is provided by velcro wraps. The assistance people told me that they could not do these wraps because they were considered "medical". They said it was the law.So, I need someone to look over or talk to me about the lease and help me as I need to write this letter soon, by June 1st.

I'm applying conceal carry permit in Georgia. I was
I'm applying for a conceal carry permit in Georgia. I was convicted in a simple assault and battery 10 years ago that involved a girlfriend and the situation got blown way out of proportion. I received a notice in the mail today concerning the situation and my conceal permit. Wanting to know the nature of the relationship of the person that was involved in the incident. That was 10 years ago and I'm a different person with a family, not a stupid kid anymore that made a bad choice. I have never been convicted of a feeling mor have I ever really been in trouble before. What do I send them as a response? And how do I word it that will best Benefit me in getting my permit?
There, I am in the process of a very, very ugly divorce.
Hi there,I am in the process of a very, very ugly divorce. I am a former CPA that supported her husband for 13 years, and had to retire b/c of a relapse of Cystic Fibrosis at which time he became extremely abusive.While I was sick, he stole my largest client, a $100M government contractor. He became CFO. He has now been there for 9 years. He told me his salary was 75K for 6 years, he was actually making $450K, bonus plus equity. He was hiding assets. During his tenure, he became involved with a woman that owns a small business. His largest contract with US AIDE came up for renewal, they needed a small business to meet SBA requirements. He formed a partnership with his girlfriend's firm, did her books, negotiated her contracts, gave her 40% of the contract or $40M in business, in exchange he took stock in her company. He is VERY smart, he kept all numbers "below the radar", I became suspicious b/c he sleeps with his phone under his pillow, tackles me if I try to look at it, hides his computer. One day I looked in his closet, found his computer and all the documents between the company he works for and Jenny. He is extremely techncially savvy, he codes his emails, however, an IT forensic person quickly decoded messages and verified what Ii knew.My question, I live on social security (2k), he said if I try to divorce him or tell anyone, he will deem me insane, have me committed and take my children. Do I have grounds to sue the company as a result of forming a partnership with a company that was formed b/c he was sleeping with the owner?Is it illegal (I know it is immoral) but is it illegal to spend 65% of working hours with his girlfriend, (hotels, restaurants), however b/c they have a partnership they are charging their time as work related.....I can prove otherwise b/c of emails.

My son and his former wife are fighting over the kids. NothingView more legal questions
My son and his former wife are fighting over the kids. Nothing new there except that I went to court to stand up with my son and offer my observations regarding the children. My former daughter-in-law took exceptions and has not filed a complaint against my school. Although I have extensive documentation clearly indicating that the school and myself have not done anything other than be objective, I feel really bad that this is happening. Since the correlation between the date she saw me at court and the complaint was issued is clear (it was right after the court appearance) I was wondering if there is anything I could do to stop this insanity.
