Like others before me who fell into the same trap, I

Like others before me who fell into the same trap, I registered to vote upon a visit to the DMV. I was accosted by a woman who persuaded me that local elections were ok to vote in, even though I denied being a U.S. citizen, when she asked. She filled out the form before me and I just signed. I know I failed to check my actions and I feel gullible indeed. Realizing my mistake, I immediately contacted and requested my registration cancelled and my name removed from the records. I have in my possession the certified copy of the cancelled registration. However I have not filed my N-400, as I am obviously worried and seeking advice on how to proceed.

CIVIL, I think. Daughter's "boyfriend"(45 years old)

CIVIL, I think.Daughter's "boyfriend"(45 years old) challenged me (senior citizen) to fight. With him being larger and younger and with me being with my family (wife and daughter), I thought to leave (along with them), but somehow felt he, the "boyfriend," would come after me regardless of whether I stood my ground or attempted to leave. (He challenged me from the inside of his car.) Am aware, from a DA's comments, that "boyfriend" has a cloudy past, in the illegal sense. Know for certain he was arrested recently for having an unregistered pistol in his trunk. After the police arrested him, he was found guilty, but only served a probationary sentence.Daughter also has a shady past: recently, she pulled out an illegal knife and threatened a couple with it while yelling racial terms at them. She was drunk and is chronically drunk.The day after the incident with the "boyfriend," daughter told me that if I take her boyfriend to court, she will claim that I threatened him.Currently filling out paperwork for a restraining order against the "boyfriend." Paperwork includes subpoenas for any police record as well as medical records for daughter. She claimed he (boyfriend) beat her--claimed this both to the hospital and on a police report, or so I've been told.Contacting JA for help with understanding how much daughter's and boyfriend's record will affect judge's judgement: wife and I will report one thing, but daughter says she will report another. i'm reasonably certain that the boyfriend will report/claim whatever daughter claims. ALSO if the judge favors my side of the reporting content, what value will be given to the fact that I am a senior citizen and was afraid of physical endangerment (even though no movement toward me was ever made)?One third question: is a restraining order court equivalent to a small claims court? I mean are lawyers permitted and may experts be brought in?

I like getting in SC and had to sue a videographer in

Hello I like getting in SC and had to sue a videographer in Columbia County Georgie in which I won. His 30 days to pay was up on yesterday. He did not pay. I have been told by a clerk there that I can file a garnishment which is even Moreno why spent out to possibly get nothing back still. I am unsure of his banking or employment other than his business name and address which I sued his sJA: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: The person and business is in Grovetown GeorgiaJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: I sued both the person and business but I really need my money back and I am unsure of his employment being that both the person and business I believe were under the same address. I have a phone number and email Iusee to contact him but he hasn't responded since last year. So we have no clue what to do as far as garnishments.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: Yes ma'am as I stated previously I sued him and his business, won because both failed to answer and both parties have refused to pay me what was ordered by default in the specified timeframe. No I need to know what and how do I find out where he banks or works to file a garnishment if he is no longer in business or under another business name or what to do.

I have a final order for possession that sets my child

I have a final order for possession that sets my child support obligations at 515/month plus ½ of uninsured medical expenses. I am taking early retirement and filing for Social Security, and my minor children will be entitled to a monthly benefit that far exceeds my current child support payment. Mom is to be the Representative Payee for the two children as they live with her.Should my support obligations in the Final Order be modified to reflect this new situation? Is this a standard legal procedure or will I have to file a motion and fight Mom in court as we have done for the last 6 years?
