nothing I beg to disagree. The Corrections Ombudsmen are created by respective departments in state/government agencies to perform the following actions: The responsibility to receive complaints against governmental agencies and to investigate those complaints in an impartial manner, free from any initial bias regarding the merits of the complaint being investigated. It is an office with freedom to investigate on its own motion. It may exercise full powers of investigation, to include access to all necessary information both testimonial and documentary, and the subpoena power. It is an office with the authority to criticize governmental agencies and officials within its jurisdiction and to recommend corrective action. They have the power to issue public reports concerning its findings and recommendations. In short, they hear, investigate and report on complaints from incarcerated offenders, their families/friends and are a point of contact for that represented group and the agency they represent.
Yes, and it is not an uncommon practice in all states. There is no law that requires a retailer to accept credit cards either.
VISA and Mastercard, however, don't allow merchants to require minimum purchase amounts. It's in their agreement contracts.
Your question is vague. Are you still serving in the Navy Reserves? If so, check with you reserve unit administrator. If your not, then you must request it from the Navy record holding dept. You must be specific on your question and what the d214 would be for. You question is still a little unclear
No, the act is a civil one not criminal. The person can be sued and held accountable for damages and costs incurred if the payment was for a valid debt. FYI, a consumer should never consent to automatic withdrawal of funds from their account by a collection agency or collections attorney. Many collectors will insist they only accept payment via automatic deduction from a checking account. If such a situation arises it would be in the debtor's best interest to refuse agreement to said terms.
Maybe. Married couples in Florida generally hold property as Tenancy By The Entirety, meaning they both own the entire amount of jointly titled property or assets which cannot be partitioned without both agreeing to the action. TBE is sometimes successfully applied to joint marital accounts unless the account is designated differently, such as Joint Tenants. Creditors have been somewhat successful in levying joint marital accounts because Florida does not have a specific statute (nor default law) designating such accounts as having TBE protection. What it usually comes down to is how the presiding judge interprets TBE law as it applies to marital accounts. The good news is a judgment levy of a marital bank account is usually dismissed when a Motion to Quash is filed by the defendant/debtor.
