Re: Wrote "Pig Fines" on Memo of Check
well, one way or the other, yes.
My question is: Can they make me go to court for that?
yes but also, you do not need to go to court unless summoned to court in some legal manner.
Are they allowed to not tell me why I would be going to court?
I would take good notes of everything that is happening. If the courts normally take checks, they would have a hard time justifying any further actions against you if they claim you failed to pay your fines although, it may happen.
Are they allowed to hold my check or cash it?
yes, but only in the proper venue and only when presented in a legally forceful manner.
Are they suppose to give me answers?
sure but the real question is do they have the legal power to punish you for your actions.
that would all depend on them. If you have not been legally summoned to court, you have no legal requirement to attend. If they simply hold your check, it will eventually show up as an unpaid fine and then, a warrant would most likely be issued and on and on.
What if I do not go to court?
I am not an attorney and any advice is not to be construed as legal advice. You might even want to ignore my advice. Actually, there are plenty of real attorneys that you might want to ignore as well.
