I applied for TSA precheck and it says I was declined but it didn't tell me why. The only thing I have on my record is a DUI from 4 years back. So they decline in Dui's that aren't felonies

I'm in nj and have had a shoulder and back injury and

I'm in nj and have had a shoulder and back injury and diagnosed with a cyst all within the last few months. I've been to 3 different emergency rooms (one er 3 times, another 3 times and another once) and all have written scripts for pain pills. These visits were all spaced out at least a week apart, some a month and the amounts of pain pills written were very few. (6 to 15 pills). I was never filling scripts at the same time from different doctors. If I filled 10 pills I didn't see another er and fill another script until days after that once ran out. Just went to one of the same ers again and the doctor checked the database and wanted to know why I'm taking all these pain medications and refused to do an ultrasound to check for a cyst and sent me home with dulcolax and said I'm constipated from the opiates. He seemed to be accusing me or drug seekingBut didn't say that. Now I'm looking this up and very worried because the fort thing that pops up is doctor shopping..which I never heard of. But it's saying what I did was illegal and I had no idea going to different emergency rooms for different problems and getting opiates prescribed was illegal. Is there a chance the doctor is going to report me and should I be worried about criminal charges and should I get a lawyer ?

I was arrested for DWI in the state of missouri where I was

I was arrested for DWI in the state of missouri where I was a resident. I had an adminstrative DWI hearing and won that...my license was still free and valid. I moved and rented a place in Iowa (bc my job required me to bc i was arrested) and established residency during that time, I got a Iowa ID card because missouri had my drivers license and I needed an ID. My old missouri drivers license was then sent back to my prior address where my separated wife lives. Prior to the missouri DMV suspending my license for points due to a conviction for excessive BAC (in missouri, the charge was dropped to this) I got my Iowa drivers license (DMV said there's nothing in the computer indicating a hold so we can issue you a DL) and they took my iowa ID also because they said my drivers license was valid and not administratively suspended. Now that I live in Iowa and have a Iowa license, Missouri is going to suspend my Missouri license for 90 days. What happens to my license in Iowa? Also, I told the DMV exactly what happened and they said you didn't do anything wrong because you have a valid drivers license and no pending suspension was served to you yet prior to obtaining your iowa DL. Just want to make sure this is ok, my lawyer said it was because I technically had no DL suspension notification by missouri prior to obtaining my iowa license.

I am curious about the Dr. Shopping law in North Dakota. I

I am curious about the Dr. Shopping law in North Dakota. I did not do it, but a pharmacist says I have red flags on my prescription list. Back in Nov 2016 I had a cyst with MRSA infection in my armpit and a relapse of it in Jan 2017 again. I was prescribed Hydrocodone for it and then in Jan Hydrocodone again. I had a reaction to it at the ER and the ER doctor game me Oxy to take instead. I did not go to a PCM, but went to the walk-in clinic daily to get my packing in my arm removed and replaced. It was easier for my schedule because they are open until 10 and I work all day. I am on Cymbalta daily for anxiety. I also saw a doctor previously and he put me on Lorazapam, but I started to go see another doctor because the other one was wacky. I did refill the prescription because I had refills left and was out of Xanax. I never took them together, but now I am concerned that they think I was Dr. shopping because I was seen at a walk-in clinic daily and saw the provider that was working that day. If I was still in pain because of the hole in my armpit and was out of meds I asked for more. Is there anything wrong with that?

I was recently served a subpoena, however, the way it was

Hi. I was recently served a subpoena, however, the way it was served was illegal. I live with my fiancé and his parents in a gated community. I'm not even listed as living here. A processor came to the guard gate and said she had a package to deliver to someone named G***. Then she said it was for B****. She gave no identification and did not say who she was, nor did the guard ask. The guard called the house and spoke to my fiancés dad and just said there's a package for B****, my fiance, so his dad let her in. She came to the house and my fiancé was outside and he heard her say "there they are" into a microphone. His dad came out and she asked "is T**** C****** here" he said "yes" she's right here." Then the lady gave me the papers and left. This is all over a credit card company suing me. Can I file a motion to dismiss since the subpoena was delivered illegally?

I committed insurance fraud by falsifying details of an

I committed insurance fraud by falsifying details of an insurance claim through my previous insurance provider. Once my claim got to their SIU, I opted to cancel the claim because I did not want to go to jail. The claim was canceled without further mention and I thought it was all done and over with. Today I received a notice saying my car insurance was being canceled, and the reason is was Misrepresentation of materials or engaged in fraudulent conduct. I made no official statements to my previous carrier to either deny or admit guilt, I simply asked for the claim to be closed. No money was paid out by my insurance provider, and no services were performed outside of an estimate performed by the insurance provider. At this point, do I need to be concerned about being prosecuted for this, and if so, how long before either a warrant is issued or a subpoena is issued?

I'm in a dilemma that's causing me extreme panic. I

I'm in a dilemma that's causing me extreme panic. I unintentionally provided false information on FAFSA regarding my marital status. I assumed that the marital status on tax return by law is required to reflect the FAFSA. At the time of the FAFSA application, I filed single because I wasn't able to file married on 1040 because my wife didn't have a social security number at the time. So corrected my marital status after amending 1040, but my wife did not work so no change in income and no advantage in aid eligibility. Could I still get into trouble?

Thank you for the note. If you would like to settle the case

Richard,Thank you for the note.If you would like to settle the case without further legal proceedings (per your letter), please reimburse the entire dollar amount I incurred in expenses as a result of Gregory's conscious advertent actions to engage in a relationship that was based on misrepresentation.Gregory gained my sexual consent and compliance to engage in a relationship with him through deception and fraudulent statements.In addition to suffering material losses which would not have been incurred if Gregory had not misrepresented himself to me in the beginning of our interactions with him, I suffered physical and psychological pain that was caused by numerous acts of battery and harassment towards me and my pet at that time.Please advise if you would like to settle by compensating me for the expenses incurred during the relationship with Gregory.As discussed, I will not contact Greg.Please advise your client that he should refrain from any attempts of getting in touch with me.Kind regards,TatyanaSent from my iPhoneOn Sep 23, 2016, at 2:03 PM, Richard ********* wrote:Ms. ************,Having raised the specter of litigation, however meritless, I am asking that you please sign the attached Release and return it to me prior to any funds being wired.Thank you.Richard *************From: Tatyana ************Sent: Friday, September 23, 2016 12:33 PMTo: Richard ************Subject: Re: ExpensesRichard,Thank you for the note.

And thank you for respecting Greg's request that you not contact him directly anymore.From our conversation yesterday and today, it is my understanding that you are seeking the expenses below because Greg was "deceptive" in his relationship with you. Specifically, you believe that he deceived you because he was romantically involved with or interested in another woman while seeing you, and that Greg essentially "misrepresented" himself in his relationship with you.Although I understand these circumstances were upsetting to you, this does not form the basis of a legal obligation to pay for what you term expenses. Gifts are gifts. Dining and entertainment are normal expenses in any relationship and you certainly benefited from Greg's companionship on those occasions. And while a lack of emotional commitment or fidelity may have disappointed your expectations for this particular relationship, it does not entitle you to compensation. Frankly, your threats to bring civil or criminal charges if Greg does not pay these "expenses" border on extortion and harassment, and I doubt your claim that a lawyer advised you to do so.That said, Greg certainly understands that you traveled to New Hampshire specifically to visit him. Although not legally obligated to reimburse you for those costs, he is willing to cover the $450 in travel expenses that you list below.If you would like us to forward that amount to you, please let me know, and I will make sure the check goes out in the next few days. Alternatively, if any further communication is necessary, I suggest your counsel contact me directly. Again, please do not contact Greg via text, email, phone or any other means.Respectfully,Richard ************Richard *************************-----Original Message-----From: Tatyana ***************Sent: Thursday, September 22, 2016 10:12 AMTo: Richard *************Subject: ExpensesAs discussed, please find the list of expenses below:Gifts:477 - Broadway tickets (gift)216 - cashmere sweater (gift)180 - blanket (gift)50 - Gus (gift)Wine - 100 (gift)70 - cup (gift)Total gifts: $1093Dining/Entertainment120 per week, 3 weeks per month, 9 monthsTotal dining/entertainment: $3240Transportation:Bus - 160 (round trip)Bus - 40 (one way)Acela - 250 (one way)Total transportation: $450Total Spend: $4,783Please let me know for any questions.Thank you,Tatyana
