Q. How do I notify my delaware tenants that I want them to leave if there is no lease?
A: If you have no written lease with your tenants, it's deemed to be a month-to-month lease. You must follow the requirements of the Delaware Landlord-Tenant Code to remove them. You can read the Code here: http://legis.delaware.gov/Legislature.nsf/1688f230b96d580f85256ae20071717e/1f058f9cecf0e1bd85256f7000607756/$FILE/lanten.pdf
Q. Can the claim Adjuster demand that a make a decision on getting surgery???
A: You should contact a worker's compensation attorney to discuss this issue. I handle worker's compensation claims throughout the entire State of Delaware and would be happy to consult with you.
A: You should direct this question to the lawyer who is currently representing you.
Q. I violated a no contact order after me and my ex decided to work things out what is going to happen to me
A: The State could choose to bring a new charge of Breach of Release against you, which could result in your bail being increased, converted to secured status, or even revoked. You should cease posting about it anywhere, because your postings could be used against you in a prosecution. You should also contact a criminal defense attorney such as myself to discuss this issue.
Q. does a durable power of attorney I have override a no contact order that was placed between us through the state of DE.
A: Assuming this is a criminal case, the no contact order is an order of the court placed upon a defendant as a condition of release on bail. If this court order is disobeyed, the violator could be subject to a new charge of Breach of Release and have his/her bail increased or even revoked. I suggest you contact a criminal defense attorney for advice as to how to modify the no contact order to an order of "no adverse contact".
Q. State of DE pressed charges against my husband for offensive touching and my sister and I don't want to press charges
A: Unfortunately, the call to drop the charges cannot be made by you and your sister. That decision is made by the Attorney General's Office. However, under Delaware law the prosecutor is required to consult with the victim of a crime before offering a plea bargain. Therefore, when the time comes for your husband to go to court, and you are contacted by the prosecutor, you should make it clear that you do not wish the case to continue.
Q. A lady who's working with the police is telling me to take my dog out of the house because my sister Can she do that?
A: Something is missing from your question. Because your sister.... what? Please rephrase and I will attempt to answer.
Q. Do criminal lawyers take on criminal cases against the state of Delaware on a contingency basis?
A: I am not sure I understand your question. You cannot bring a criminal case against the State of Delaware. However, if you have been charged with a crime, the Rules of Professional Conduct absolutely prohibit a lawyer from taking a criminal case on a contingent basis. If you have been charged with a crime and are unable to afford a lawyer, you should contact the Public Defender's Office for your county immediately.
