Legal Answers
Q. Do I have enough to fight this speeding ticket in court?
A: You will lose. If the zone is 55, going 56 is speeding. The fact that he gave you a break by writing only 65 is a gift to you. Office would testify to his experience and his observation is based on that. BTW, 25 mph over is a 6 point violation. 10 mph over is 3 points.
Q. If I had a separation agreement signed and notarized, but not court approved, can I change my mind about the stipulation
A: A separation agreement, if properly executed, is enforceable. It does not have to be approved by the court. You can enforce it through a divorce action or a plenary action. However, you can not unilaterally toss it aside. If you start a divorce action, your spouse can seek to enforce the terms of the agreement. You should speak to an attorney.
Q. My ex husband filed divorce in New York where he lives I live in Tennessee. How can he send me the final divorce decree?
A: He is not being truthful. He can send the divorce judgment through the mail just like any other document. We usually send the judgments to our clients by mail. You can contact the county clerk in the county where the Divorce was granted and get a copy but you may be required to provide identification.
