Do I have to fill out a accident report request that was sent to me? There wasn't damage to either of our cars
This depends on which state you live in and also who sent you the report request. It is highly unusual for a citizen to send a crash report to another citizen. If I were you I would not fill it out unless it came from a police agency. Even then I would be suspicious and follow Kathryn's answer below.
How do I respond to a request for a restraining order? Do I need to fill out a form?
As asked of me specifically;The others are right, you will likely need a lawyer. But to answer your question, there is a response form to respond to a restraining order or order of protection. Worst case the form is available at the courthouse where your hearing is set to be heard in, typically at the appropriate clerk's window, which may vary, so ask any of the clerk's when you get there.You only have so many days to respond, and it will specify in the paperwork.You will also have to appear in court on the date your hearing is scheduled.Most courts have a department that will help you respond to forms at no cost. I figure you are asking because you can't afford an attorney which is completely understandable.The problem is that if you aren't represented and the other person is successful in getting a temporary restraining order made permanent in the hearing you will not be allowed at any of the places the petitioner goes, without risking arrest.I hope this helps.Not given as legal advice-
What do I need to do to remove bad credit entries from my credit report and raise my credit score?
Negative details on your credit report are unfortunate glaring reminders of your past financial mistakes. Or, in some cases, the mistake isn't yours, but a business or credit bureau is to blame for the errors . Either way, it’s up to you to work to have bad credit entries removed from your credit report.Removing negative information will help you achieve a better credit score. A better credit report is also the key to getting approved for credit cards and loans and to getting good interest rates on the accounts that you’re approved for. To help on your way to better credit, here are some strategies to get negative credit report information removed from your credit report.firstly would advice you to get in touch with a credit expert or a professional credit counselor like me . as a professional this are some of the strategies i take .Submit a Dispute to the Credit BureauThe fair credit report is a Federal law that defines the type of information that can be listed on your credit report and for how long (generally seven years). The FCRA says that you have the right to an accurate credit report and because of that provision, you can dispute errors with the credit bureaucredit report dispute are easiest when made online or via mail.Dispute With the Business That Reported to the Credit BureauNow, you can completely bypass the credit bureau and dispute directly with the business that reported the error to the credit bureau, e.g., the bank, or debt collector. You can make the dispute in writing, and the business is required to do an investigation just like the credit bureau.When the business determines that there’s indeed an error on your credit report, they must notify all the credit bureaus of that error so your credit reports can be corrected.Send a Pay for Delete Offer to Your CreditorYou have to approach accurately reported negative information differently. Credit bureaus won’t remove accurate, verifiable information even if you dispute it (because the investigation will verify the accuracy of this information), so you may have to negotiate to have some items removed from your credit report.Pay for delete offer is a technique you can use with delinquent, or past due, accounts. In pay for delete negotiation, you offer to pay the account in full in exchange for having the negative details removed from your credit report. Some creditors will take you up on the offer.Make a Goodwill Request for DeletionWith pay for delete, you can use money as the bargaining chip for getting negative information removed from your credit report. If you’ve already paid the account, however, you don’t have much-negotiating power. At this point, you can ask for mercy by requesting a good will deletion.In a letter to the creditor, you might describe why you were late, state how you’ve since been a good paying customer, and ask that the accounts be reported more favorably. Again, creditors don’t have to comply and some won’t. On the other hand, some creditors will make these deletions if you talk to the right person.Wait Out the Credit Reporting Time LimitIf all else fails, your only choice is to wait for those negative items to fall off your credit report. Fortunately, the law only allows most negative to be reported for seven years. The exception is bankruptcy, which can be reported for up to 10 years. The other good news is that negative information affects your credit report less as it gets older and as you replace it with positive information. The wait may not be as difficult as you’d think.for more details and inquiries visit the mail in my bio .cheers
Does a girlfriend have to fill out a leave request form for a US Army Soldier in Special Operations in Africa?
Let me guess, you've been contacted via email by somebody you’ve never met. they've told you a story about being a deployed soldier. At some stage in the dialogue they’ve told you about some kind of emotional drama, sick relative/kid etc. They tell you that because they are in a dangerous part of the world with no facilities they need you to fill in a leave application for them. Some part of this process will inevitably involve you having to pay some money on their behalf. The money will need to be paid via ‘Western Union’. Since you havent had much involvement with the military in the past you dont understand and are tempted to help out this poor soldier. they promise to pay you back once they get back from war.if this sounds familiar you are being scammed. There is no soldier just an online criminal trying to steal your money. If you send any money via Western Union it is gone, straight into the pockets of the scammer. you cant get it back, it is not traceable, this is why scammers love Western Union. They aernt going to pay you back, once they have your money you will only hear from them again if they think they can double down and squeeze more money out of you.Leave applications need to be completed by soldiers themselves. They are normally approved by their unit chain of command. If there is a problem the soldier’s commander will summon them internally to resolve the issue. This is all part of the fun of being a unit commander!! If the leave is not urgent they will wait for a convenient time during a rotation etc to work out the problems, if the leave is urgent (dying parent/spouse/kid etc) they will literally get that soldier out of an operational area ASAP. Operational requirements come first but it would need to be something unthinkable to prevent the Army giving immediate emergency leave to somebody to visit their dying kid in hospital etc.The process used by the scammers is known as ‘Advance fee fraud’ and if you want to read about the funny things people do to scam the scammers have a read over on The largest scambaiting community on the planet!
What do you make of Lindsey Graham’s request for a special counsel to make Mueller’s report public?
I have not heard this one yet…In fact it was Lindsey Graham that went against the House’s 420 to 0 vote to demand the Mueller Report be made public but blocked it… has to make you wonder what does he know that he does not want ALL of us to know….The House has already set up a way to force the public release of his report no matter what DOJ or the Senate tries to do.Here is an article put out at 9:10 pm EST 3/14/2019 by the New York Magazine…. Lindsey Graham Just Made It Less Likely the Public Will See the Mueller Report
