Legal Answers
Q. The log in to pay ticket fine on website listed on ticket, no information of my son nor the ticket number is showing up
A: If he is only charged with speeding he can just pay the ticket and not show up for court. At that time the "bond" (what he paid) with be forfeited and the case will be over. That being said, depending on what state he has his license in the points for the ticket can transfer back and show up on his license there. If he wishes to fight the ticket of hire an attorney to assist him it is best to contact someone as soon as possible so that they can start negotiating with the officer.
Q. I received a speeding ticket I was told by the officer I was not required to go to court but I was summoned to go
A: If you pay the ticket before the court date you are not required to appear. That being said, they will accept the payment of the ticket (bond) and adjudicate you guilty and send that to the DMV to assess points on your license. It might be worth speaking with an attorney in that area that would be able to negotiate with the officer to get a better deal for you.
Q. If I pay my rent will the evicted still be progress
A: You need to speak with your landlord. If at anytime you were in violation of the lease and your landlord complied with the SC landlord tenant act you can be evicted even if you have since caught up on your rent. Make sure to talk to your landlord and get something in writing that they will dismiss the eviction action if they take the rent.
