Legal Answers
Q. Can a torte claim for approx $7,000 for an auto-accident be discharged in a Ch 7. No DUI involved
A: The short answer is YES. Tort (not torte, a French pie) judgments are no different from others unless they include specific punitive or exemplary damages, which may not be discharged. Take you specific problem to a good BK lawyer so he/she can know all the facts and base an opinion on that.
Q. How much can a pawnbroker charge in interest for money loaned in California ?
A: Yes it is, and probably they can. Pawnbrokers have the ability to charge massive interest rates under many state laws. I am not familiar with your state, but here in Florida it is confiscatory. You only mention bankruptcy. Go see a good local bankruptcy lawyer (not one of those mills that advertises) and enlist his/her aid. Good Luck d
Q. Good Morning I need some advice on an indictment that was dismissed in 2003. CR 93-588 LH, Document 74, 09-15-2003.
A: You give no clue on which state held the indictment, but if it was truly DISMISSED it is probably long forgotten unless the NCIS computer remembers it. I would contact a lawyer in the state/county where the charge was to do some quiet inquiry on your behalf to determine the status because leaving the jurisdiction usually suspends the statute of limitation. All That being said, you should be able to re-enter with the documents you have, but to be conservative you could apply to the nearest consular office or the American Embassy in Mexico City for the issuance of a passport. They do that all the time. Did you apply for and receive Mexican citizenship? If you did, you are no longer a citizen of the U. S. because the only way a U. S. citizen can be dual is if he/she is born in a Country that says "once a XXXX, always a XXXX", and then is naturalized in the U. S. My wife is an example of that
