Had big hopes and didn't even consider would be denied travel pass to go see her for xmas... only asked for a 4day pass (1 day bus ride there 2 day visit and 1 day bus ride home). I'm eerked that probation officer won't even tell me why was denied. Do I have further options/appeal option? How and to who? Thanks in advance for assistance.

LONG story short...was at dive bar, got wayyyy to drunk and ended up in a fight and ended up going to jail blah blah blah. Mind you I remember absolutely nothing. Never has that happen. On surveillance video police used for court it shows me literally barely able to stand but yet bartender kept serving me no problem. Now I've got to pay all these fines and stuff but none of it woulda even happened had I beencut t off when shoulda been. Also, was it legal for bartender to not only NOT prevent me from coming back in with a weapon but then video shows him leaning over bar to watch and not stop things.

I received a letter from Dept. of Finance from the city of Los Angeles. Stating I owe them for " Emergency Response Costs" of $1032.82 . They itemization they sent me looks like they want me to pay back the wages of the Police dept. officers that were at the accident. In the letter they are pretty agressive : stating law suit , collections or seizure of my bank account. I haven't worked since August due to loss of employment . And I have hospital bills over $673 k. because I was in hospital for 24 days and still recovering. I am overwhelmed and still face jail time Any recommendations ?
I doubt that they will negotiate a lower payment. Consult with a BK lawyer as to whether it is dischargeable in a 7. I...
I'm a legal resident and I have two misdemeanors for DUI. If I need to travel outside the US for business reasons or family emergency, would I have trouble coming back to the US? I have been advised that there will not be any problem in traveling outside the US but Border Patrol might question me. What are the changes of denying entry back to the States? Do I need to fill out paperwork before hand?
I would say it depends on where you are going. If you are traveling Canada you may be denied entry into Canada for...
