Money is really tight and I dont like to ask for money, so I'm always looking for ways to get money to buy clothes and other things which i need and or want.

  • I went to court and I think I was pressed to settle. But.i.would.like.to.change.my.mind.and let.the judge her.the.case.how.can.iget.out.of.the agreement
  • Can employer push you to quit so that you cant claim unemployment?
  • Can a person still change their name if they have been convicted of a felony?
  • Say a debt collector calls you, and you offer a monthly payment because thats is all you can afford. They say no thats not enough, you have to pay more.Then when you tell them you cannot afford anything more. they threaten to garnish your wages. It has been quite sometime since they have sent me any corospondance in regard to this debt, and so I thought it had been written off due to the facit it is on my credit as a bad debt. What  should I do in this matter?
  • The father doesn’t pay for any expenses of our 1 year old. The baby is with me 24/7 he visits every once in a while for maybe an hour a week but doesn’t bring anything or try to help. I have been seeing into putting him on child support since I do not currently work and my parents (baby’s grandparents) are basically the ones paying for all the expenses but I looked into the “child support calculator” and only $50 a month comes up as what he would pay and I’m wondering if it’s even worth going through the trouble for such a low amount. Is that thing accurate or would I have to talk to a lawyer?
