Q. I was caught and got two tickets one for 1) Fake Id and 2) Possession of Alc. in public. How should I go about this.
A: It is always a good idea in a situation like this to reach out to an attorney near you. Many Solicitor’s offices around the state will allow you to complete a diversionary program while out of state.
Q. In Sc pulled over for doing 93/55. My son said there’s no way he was doing that speed. Gave him a ticket for 56/55
A: There are ways to fight any ticket but until you or an attorney receive all of the discovery from law enforcement there is no way to answer your question. It might be worth reaching out to an attorney in the area where the ticket was written to advise you.
Q. My Step daughters mom keeps threatening to just keep her every time she gets mad about something. Can she do that?
A: You will need to contact a Family Court attorney in your area. This is a very complicated area of the law and really depends on what the current custody agreement/order says. If she is violating a custody order there is an enforcement mechanism that may be of assistance.
