The Société des services juridiques has developed a series of podcasts on civil legal aid. Each Let`s Talk Justice podcast will explore ways to expand access to justice and illustrate why it is important to the legal community, business, government and the general public. Mid-Missouri Legal Services (MMLS) provides legal services to eleven (11) counties in downtown Missouri. Due to the unique challenges of serving a predominantly rural area, MMLS developed a plan to deploy volunteers in a variety of ways to expand the reach and effectiveness of the program. MMLS considers input from segments of the client community, private bar lawyers and bar associations in the development of its annual Private Lawyer Engagement Plan (IAP). All responses to MMLS` proposed Private Lawyer Participation Plan for 2023 can be submitted to dunhamk@mmls.org.

While Missouri law previously provided for a seven-year waiting period for the eradication of a crime and three years for the elimination of a misdemeanor, in August 2021, those waiting periods were reduced to three years and one year, respectively. The waiting period begins as soon as all court obligations, such as probation and fines, have been met. To request expungement, an applicant must have avoided further convictions during the applicable waiting period before making an application. In addition, a person requesting deletion may not have criminal charges. You are invited to an exhibit on veterans` appreciation and benefits hosted by Mid-Missouri Legal Services and Harry S.

In Missouri, deletion results in the closure of arrest and conviction records instead of deleting or destroying records. Most drug offences were eligible for removal in 2018. Misdemeanor and theft charges, often filed in shoplifting cases, were allowed to be dropped in August 2019. People who have committed certain crimes can have those crimes sealed under the Missouri Suppression Act, which takes a lot of stress off them and opens the door to potential opportunities.

Significant changes to Missouri`s law have allowed more people to have a criminal record closed. Lawmakers expanded the types of crimes eligible for suppression and shortened the “waiting time” before a person can ask a court to close files. You can check out the MMLS 2023 IAP Plan at this link: MMLS Proposed PAI Plan 2023 I am writing on behalf of my grandson to get information about a letter he recently received from a debt collection agency saying he owed about $800.00 to $900.00 for the rent of an apartment he rented nearly two years ago. At that time, the apartment complex had given him an explanation that he owed them $0.00, and he moved out of the apartment upon graduation. He studied political science, but could not find a full-time job. He worked as a referee at the YMCA and as a coach for a women`s soccer team, both part-time jobs that don`t pay much, while looking for a full-time job.

He was stunned at owing money and spoke to the collection agency, which explained that the apartment complex`s accounting department made a mistake in sending him the $0.00 balance almost 2 years ago. Is he responsible for paying the money or should he try to fight with the debt collection agency? Elf.
