What does the box that is checked that says Accordingly this action is dismissed for lack of prosecution on a notice of lack of prosecution mean?
What does it mean when they say order of dismissal for lack of prosecution in regards to a foreclosure court case?
"Want of prosecution" (or lack of prosecution) means that a particular lawsuit is not being actively pursued, i.e. prosecuted by one or another parties. All states have court rules that set time frames within which certain things, like take depositions, issue interrogatories, etc. have to be done. In the even a party to a lawsuit does not do what is supposed to be done within those time limits, the court has the discretion in an…
Struck out means that the case against you has been dismissed by the court. In other words the court feels that there is no case to answer,or the court after hearing the prosecution case feels that there is not sufficient evidence to try the accused, and the court finds that it's in the best interest that "the case be struck out."
If you are given a deferred prosecution and comply with all guidelines will it remain on your record after it has gone to court?
Court shorthand is by no means universal from jurisdiction to jurisdiction or even from court to court. This "gobbledygook" SEEMS to indicate; "Disposition - Reversed due to lack of jurisdiction." But this is ONLY AN EDUCATED GUESS! Be certain you check with the Clerk Of The Court and ask what this means to THEM.
What can you do to get a change of venue from supreme court to family court when the ruling states that supreme court no longer has jurisdiction 1 year after the divorce.?
Clarification needed. Are you sure you mean SUPREME Court or do you actually mean SUPERIOR Court? If your state SUPREME COURT has ruled "no jurisdiction," then you're out of luck - no court in your state will handle it. Additionally - you may be out of luck anyway. So-called "family court" is nothing more than a division of Superior (in some states they're called "Circuit" court) and a ruling of 'no jurisdiction by a superior…
A contempt of family court by an adult is an offense that goes against a court order such as child support or visitation of a child. When an adult is found in contempt of family court for child support they can be jailed, fined or both, and made to enter a work program. If the matter is a visitation matter, the parent denying visitation could potentially lose custody of the child.
Vided in this context means viewed. This does not necessarily mean it was given any particular consideration or found pursuasive. It is simply an acknowlegement that the Supreme Court has this particular brief included on its file for this particular docket and it was not rejected for lack of form or formalities.
As a matter of law, the prosecution, or the plaintiff, has failed to present sufficient evidence to prove the claim. Usually it is in response to a motion from the defense, but the court can do so on their own volition. They will also specify whether the case is dismissed 'with' or 'without' prejudice. If it is dismissed 'without prejudice' it means the prosecutor can bring the case to court again. Dismissed 'with prejudice' means…
Stayed: If the charge is "stayed" by the judge, this means the present proceedings are suspended. It is not a finding of innocence, simply a stopping of the prosecution at a particular point. The proceedings can be started again in the future if certain events occur (for example, new evidence is found).
If there is an existing court order you need to take the issue before the court with jurisdictions and request a modification. The court will follow state guidelines and 50/50 custody may not mean 50/50 child support obligations. They court may consider the earning power of the parties, who pays for medical insurance, etc. You should speak with an attorney familiar with the court system or an advocate at the family court. If there is…
Charged - A formal accusation of an offense which is the preliminary step to prosecution. It does NOT mean "The Accused Person or Business" has been CONVICTED or found GUILTY of an illegal offense or crime. More so, it IS an accusation by someone representing the law, most likely a police officer. It DOES mean that the "The Accused Person or Business" will go before a court of law where a prosecutor - which is…
What does it mean when the child shall not be removed from the jurisdiction of this court in the exercise of this visitation?
It means that without the permission of the court, the child cannot leave the geographical location of the court. So if the family court is located in City X and has jurisdiction in City X, the child cannot be removed from City X. If the court is a state court or provincial court the child cannot be moved from the state/province, absent consent of the court.
Voir dire is the process of questioning members of the jury pool conducted by both the defense and prosecution prior to choosing jurors to sit on the jury panel. Whereas this process usually takes place in open court, a 'sequestered' voire dire would mean that the jury panel was questioned in a 'closed' situation with only the judge, court clerk, court stenographer, Bailiff, defendant/respondant, and the opposing lawyers present.
It is not clear from your question what you mean by conceal. Custody and visitation should have been addressed at the time of the divorce and he can file a complaint in the family court if she is violating any court orders. If she concealed the fact that he had a child then he should file a complaint to establish paternity as soon as possible. In either case, he should consult with an attorney who…
