What is the punishment for running away in Missouri?

Punishment for runaway behavior, if applicable, varies from state to state, and many variables are considered, including the reason the child ran away (most of the time it's because of abuse, and the state may be reluctant to return the child to his home if that's the case), the child's age, with whom, and whether the child wants to return home. The sanction ranges from placement in foster care to juvenile detention, depending on whether the child is dependent (needs foster care due to abuse and/or neglect), or delinquent (runs away without just reason and has a history of doing so).

Debt Collection
Workers Compensation
Civil Lawsuits

If you sue and get a judgment in your favor what are the methods available for collecting the judgment?

All states have laws governing the collection of judgments. Those laws have to be followed "to the letter." Wage garnishment, bank account levy, and in some cases property liens can be used to collect money owed. However, many states have laws prohibiting the levy of a bank account if it is a joint account, etc. Also many states do not allow a lien to be placed on real property if the judgment was won in small claims court. The DMV will not suspend a license due to a civil judgment UNLESS it is related to an auto accident case. Debtors are legally entitled to specific exemptions from any judgments. Unless you are well versed in the laws of your state, you should seek legal advice. You could end up on the other side of a lawsuit and judgment.

Another option is a fi fa, this is good for seven years and in most states costs you $7 to renew every seven years. After a ruling against the other party is given, you may file for this in MOST cases. This enables you to have anything the other party possesses auctioned off (usually by the sheriffs office), thus in turn you are given that money. This and garnishing wages are the two most effective and efficent means of recovering your money. I recommend you get another hearing for payment options (usually this is done in civil suits/magistrate court)

Laws to collection judgments will vary from state to state. I posted an article on my blog that covers some of the common methods used to collect judgments in California:

I would like to thank you all for the answers to my question, especially my blog I am using this site for the first time and think it is perfect for obtaining Q & A and will be telling all my friends and family about it

Go back to court and request a writ of execution (order for wage execution or attachment of assets, etc.). Once you have obtained the writ take it to your local sheriff for execution. Above all check your state law for the absolutely necessary criteria by which you should proceed in any legal matter. Collection agencies generally get involved prior to judgment.

Workers Compensation

Do officers of a corporation need to be covered by Workmen's comp in the state of Missouri?

They should be, but you may be able to exclude them, if they are shareholders. For more information see

CA Labor Code 3351

Blue Cross Employer Application Question # 12

Corporate Officers and Key Executives are generally specifically excluded on Workers' Compensation policies in California.

Exercise care when excluding anyone, yet note that many officers and executives or other highly paid individuals may wish to be excluded because they're comfortable with the health plan, the lost wages benefits payable under Comp may be extremely low in comparison with their wages. In these cases, employers should consider providing Occupational Accident coverage at limits satisfactory to those workers. Employees can through proper procedures legally opt out of Comp at anytime for any reason in any state, though employers may be required to make it available.

State Laws

What are the repossession laws in Missouri?

The MO Uniform Commercial Code, the statute that governs secured transactions generally, was substantially amended in 2001. This is a verbatim partial summary of the bill that amended that statute:

UNIFORM COMMERCIAL CODE - This act substantially revises Article 9 of the Uniform Commercial Code regulating secured transactions. The scope of Article 9 is expanded to include additional types of property in which a security interest can be taken by a creditor and additional kinds of collateral, including sales of payment intangibles and promissory notes, security interests created by governmental debtors, health insurance receivables, consignments, and commercial tort claims.

The legislative site [see below] has the text of the 2001 bill which you can wade through (and the rest of the summary above), OR call your local legal aid office and ask if they have a current brochure that explains repossessions. Legal Aid or The Missouri Bar should have a brochure.

Generally, when people speak of repossession (a legal action a creditor may take after a person defaults on a secured transaction), they speak of motor vehicle (or boat or trailer) repossession. If that is your concern, read your sales agreement carefully. It will tell you if you have given the seller the right to take your car, boat or trailer if you have defaulted on payment.

Additional information: In 2002, SB 895 made minor modifications to statutory definitions relating to secured transactions, in s. 400.9-102; and on July 10, 2012, the governor signed HB 1400 slightly modifying perfection of security interests on property held as inventory (the bill also now allows mortgage brokers to charge certain fees).

Further additional information:

Section 400.9-102 was again amended, by HB 212 (2013), substantially, as to the definitions of the words "sign," "certificate of title," "public organic record," and "registered organization"; rules applying to collateral and financial statements; rules applying to a "payment intangible or promissory note"; records as to identification of debtors and decedents; corrections to records; financial statements filed in other jurisdictions; and fund transfers under 15 U.S.C., s. 1693o-1. Amendments are bolded in the bill text and are effective July 1, 2013 and June 30, 2018.
