Q. Can I get help to divorce with no money in Minnesota?
A: In Minnesota, individuals facing financial difficulties, such as being unemployed and experiencing hardships like mistreatment within a marriage, can seek assistance for obtaining a divorce. Various resources are available, including legal aid organizations that offer free or low-cost legal services to those who qualify based on income. Additionally, the state's courts may provide self-help resources to guide you through the divorce process. You may also be eligible to have court filing fees waived if you can demonstrate financial hardship. Given your situation, involving domestic issues and health concerns, local domestic violence organizations might offer additional support and resources. It's important to reach out to these organizations, as well as legal aid services, to understand the options available to you for pursuing a divorce and ensuring your safety and well-being during this process. ...

Q. I got a felony violation charge just to get off probation, is this something that happens a lot and can I do anything?
A: In North Carolina, receiving a felony violation charge as a means to expedite the termination of probation is not a standard legal procedure and is generally not advisable due to the significant negative consequences of having a felony conviction on your record. Such an action could result in longer-term legal repercussions beyond probation, including loss of certain rights and difficulties in employment, housing, and education. If you are currently facing this situation, it is crucial to consult with a criminal defense attorney immediately. An attorney can provide you with legal advice tailored to your specific circumstances, explore any options for appealing the charge or reducing its impact, and assist in navigating the legal system to address your probation and any new charges you are facing. ...

Q. Hello My deceased mom home in the state of Florida was sold at foreclosure proceedings and she owned 50% interest.
A: In Florida, if your deceased mother's home was sold at foreclosure and she owned a 50% interest, you and your siblings need to follow several steps to claim any surplus funds from the sale. First, you should contact the clerk of the court in the county where the foreclosure sale occurred to inquire about any surplus funds from the sale. You'll likely need to file a claim for the surplus funds, providing necessary documentation such as a death certificate for your mother, proof of your legal relationship to her (e.g., birth certificates), and possibly a probate order proving your entitlement to her estate.
