    Hard to know I know its frustrating for you, but two weeks lag time for a company isn't unreasonable especially with a holiday in the middle of things. You also mentioned a third party does the background check - thats another level of complication. (BTW, Your BFs property management company...

    Alcohol & Drugs: MIP, MIC, Intoxication legal drinking age

    Afaik There is no exception to the National Minimum Age Act as it is written. If you read the act is it very specific in what it outlaws. So there are some loopholes which vary by state (some states didn't close the loopholes with their own legislation). There may be some wiggle room in...

    Alcohol & Drugs: MIP, MIC, Intoxication legal drinking age

    Nope The National Minimum 21 Drinking Age Act specifies that you must be 21 or older to purchase or publicly posess alcohol. Neither marriage nor a court ordered emacipation will alter that. Most states specifically prohibit anyone under 21 drinking alcohol. Ibis

    Statue of limitations

    You need a lawyer If a complaint has already been filed, I think you need to contact a lawyer who specializes in landlord-tenant disputes. Hopefully, one of the legal folks will see this and have more specific advice. Ibis

    Not sure where to go but please help

    Were you charged? OK, you were arrested. Were you charged with possession? If you were charged and have a court date you need a lawyer. Have you gotten one yet? If you don't have a lawyer and can't afford one, you should ask for one. Ibis

    Alcohol & Drugs: MIP, MIC, Intoxication 1st MIP in michigan

    There often a lot of discretion on the judges part about how to handle MIPs. I google these talking points about the new Michigan laws enacted in 2004. First time offenders may not even get a misdemeanor...

    Arrest, Search, Seizure, Warrant Arrested at Border crossing By US Customs & border patrol

    I'm not sure what your recourse would be. I know nothing about Canadian law. A normal security check would not involve handcuffing you. They were certainly acting on some kind of report, but who knows what about you and your husband matched the report. I'd sure as hell start shooting off...

    Try the State Attorney General's Office In my experience, the Mass AGO is pretty helpful answering basic questions about the law and telling you where to go next. (BTW, I'm assuming that the paper you have spelled out the terms of the sublease and both of you signed it. ) AFAIK, in MA you...
