Can I write a letter to the new judge of the circuit court because the retiring judge made a wrong decision and based the decision on presumption and not facts?

I had a lawyer that chose to not use the principal utmost important evidence that I needed to win my case against my brother in civil court. My lawyer stated to me in his office that he was not about to waste the judges time with my trivial case. This was stated in half because the honorable judge at the time was retiring and all of the staff was giving him a retirement party the same afternoon or the next day. Also my lawyer was not concerned with my case due to the fact that his son was getting married the following week and my lawyer was going to Santa Domingo for the wedding. I showed 3 crucial handwritten, dated and signed letters from my mother to my brother stating why she herself had to change her last will and testament. It was because without my prior knowledge both my mother and brother had conspired to hide a CD worth ,000.00. My brother had applied for financial aid from the hospital for our mother and she had received the financial aid for 3 years. He did this by hiding the CD part on the bank statements. He was and is single and lives close by our mother. I was married and living my normal life with my husband and step- son 18 miles away. I was dealing with my own life problems during the time that our mother and brother had decided to do this illegal business. Our mother had always told us to never lie and be truthful always. My brother never learned that. I did. I pride myself on always telling the truth to honor our mother. I need to mention that I am handicapped due to a car wreck that also led to back surgery for me. I do not work anymore. My brother however does work. I was able to take our mother to all of her doctors appointments and chemotherapy appointments. I was bound at the hip to our mom. She and I were always together. The last day that our mother was in the hospital there was an issue that had arose. My brother ended up telling the social worker at the hospital about the CD worth ,000.00. Our mother was in her right mind and she became outraged at my brother for him telling the social worker about the CD. I was the one to take her home to her house. She was enraged at the time of her discharge and demanded that I take her to the business office at the hospital to get a notary to stamp a will that she then made. I did as I was told. The will was notarized but lacked 2 witnesses. It made the point that our mother was tremendously angry at my brother. The will named me as her POA as well as her executor of the estate once something happened to her. I am handicapped physically but not mentally. I do have deficits with my walking but I can still do for short periods. I had made a verbal agreement with our mother many years ago that I was going to be the one to take care of her when she needed me. I had previously taken care of 2 aunts along with hospice until they passed and I owed the same debt to our mother. In July 2013 our mother asked for a pen and paper so she could write letters to people while I was gone to town for groceries. I gave her a notebook and she said that she would not get up until I returned. I knew that I could trust her to be honest. When I returned she had written 3 letters to my brother stating that she could not trust him because he had betrayed her confidence. She had no intention of telling about the CD. She was supposed to have left that money for us to fix up her house as we both were to be guaranteed a lifetime right at her home. She said that because my brother had told the social worker about the CD that she could no longer trust him and had to do things differently than what she had planned to do. My brother thought all along that the CD was going to be all his after our mother passed. She was of sound mind and alive and allowed to change her mind. Now comes the social worker. She is legally obligated to report WELFARE FRAUD. She did to the social services in our area. The social worker from our area came out to visit with our mother and briefly explained the situation. She stated that since our mother had hidden the CD that she could have 2 things happen. She could get reported for welfare fraud which at our mothers age of 85 would put her in jail and she would die there. Next she offered a medicaid spend down to my mother which she gladly accepted. She had to spend a lot of the money in the home so that she could qualify for medicaid. She put a new roof on the house, new Windows in the house and a heat pump in the house. She then had the social worker come back out to the house to see the improvements. I had also volunteered to put a new kitchen floor down because the old one had rotted after 50 years and bad plumbing. I kept my word. The social worker was pleased with all of the work that had been done. She let our mother apply for medicaid so that there would be an aide to help me out in the care of our mother. Hospice was going to provide an aide to help out until medicaid kicked in. I on my own hired a friend to help out more since our mother was extremely demanding of me. I paid this lady out of my own pocket so that I could get some very needed rest and showers to care for myself. Taking care of our mother was no easy task. I saved every receipt for everything that was spent for when my job as executor would start. I found out that my brother had seriously thought that every penny of the ,000.00 was ti be his. He sued me for the ,000.00 shortly after our mothers death. He did not mention in court that our mother had actually had 2 CD's and that one was in her name with me as beneficiary but that she had used every penny of the CD to bury herself. I was only to be the beneficiary once she passed. As long as she was living the money was still hers. The next CD was also hers with my brother as beneficiary. This was the ,000.00 CD. Once he told the social worker of the CD that they had hidden our mother had no alternatives. When it came to court my brother made it appear that I had used the money to fix the house up for me against our frugal mothers wishes. I have copies of the letters that our mother had written in her hand on her own accord to my brother. My lawyer refused to let these get into evidence in court. Due to me being handicapped I do have to take medications at times for leg spasms and they leave me with some brain fog. The winter time is the worst. We were in court the whole day and I had to take some pills to stop my legs from jumping and due to these issues I did not have a clear answer to the question about why our mother had suddenly spent such a large amount of money since normally she only spent 0.00 a month. I thought that the lawyer was going to admit the letters into evidence bu the refused. I lost the case and now I owe my brother ,000.00 because our mother and he did illegal things and she did what she needed to do to correct them. My lawyer also did not call either of the social workers about this. I was hung out to dry. Sir, what with respect are my options at this point? This case is still not closed. We go to court in January for the accounting which is complete minus 0.00. What can I do to get this corrected with the new judge? Thank you for your time and utmost attention in this matter. sincerely Tenorio

How do I write a plea claiming to be innocent?

I saw a post online, claiming to be a boy posting. He posted that he suspects his sister of selling herself and wanted someone to approach her and see what is she involved in. I approached her, via the messaging app Kik, acting as someone interested, only in the end to discourage her and report back to her brother. I received a message from her claiming to have reported me to Federal Relations for solicitation of a minor under 16. It said I had 24 hours to forward a plea through the app before the case was forwarded to the local police. It specifically mentioned my city and ISP. So my question is, how do I write a letter claiming to be innocent in this case? I never meant to solicit the account.

Any pointers on how to write a letter to the judge on this problem?

I have been paying off a ticket for a year now and have never missed a payment date. However last month my money order got sent back because I forgot to write the court date on it. During that time I was moving houses and my ex roommate had all the mail in possession and I did not receive the letter of them asking me to write the court date on it and send it back until three weeks later. I sent in the last money order and this months money order in together and I called the court two days ago to make sure I was not fined. They said everything was fine. However, my dad was going to pay off the rest of what I owe today and the court said that a fine of 300 and my licence had been suspended because of a missed payment (even though the money order has a payment date on there so I technically did not miss the payment). If I write a good letter what are my chances of having the extra 300 taken off and my license reinstated? I understand that it was my fault for not getting my mail sooner but I did take initiation and call them that day and they told me I should be fine, plus the proof that I took the money order out on the day it was due. Thank you and please get back to me.

A pleading letter about my RRSP excess contribution?

For form RC4288

For my penalty on RRSP excess contributions

On February 20th, 2012, I took my husband's money of ,600 to HSBC Medicine Hat branch and told one of tellers that this is my husband's RRSP contributions and I would like to put 00 into his account and the rest 00 into mine but it must be his RRSP contributions. She did and said it was OK now. I did not realize that my RRSP account was not a spousal RRSP account therefore I was not allowed to do so. Neither HSBC InvestDirect nor Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) told me that it was wrong. Due to my poor English and poor RRSP knowledge, I never realize it would be a big trouble for both of my husband and me. I continue to do so until last year CRA wrote a letter to us on November 23, 2015 for tax year of 2014 in that my husband had to pay

,644.70 back to CRA. I made a phone call to CRA and heard that the RRSP contribution of 00 in my RRSP account cannot be deducted by him. I called the bank and was told about "spousal RRSP account" and the form T3012A. I paid that amount of money to CRA on December 1, 2015 online. Now my husband has to pay ,557.17 back to CRA. I have to -pay penalty of excess contributions of 42 for the tax years of 2012, 2012, and 2014 based on T1-ovp. The total amount of this is ,344.

Hi! I was just wondering if the appropriate introduction to a plea letter would be "Dear Your Honor," or just "You Honor,". I have tried: I'm just reading this page, which has all of the information that I need except for the exact wording to start the letter. I think it was caused by: I received a traffic ticket for a "defective break light." It was a burnt light bulb, which I replaced and will be sending a receipt for. My employer will not allow me to have the hour off in the morning of the court date, so I have to write a letter and send in the money.
