Everyone makes mistakes. Sometimes those mistakes result in an arrest or even a conviction. If your arrest never resulted in a conviction or if you were convicted of a crime but have completed your sentence and stayed out of trouble long enough, you may be eligible to have your previous arrests/convictions erased from your record. Cloud Legal, LLC can assist you in determining if you are eligible for an expungement and guide you through the process if you qualify.
Legal disputes can be expensive, time-consuming, and emotionally stressful. Mediation is a process that uses a trained person (called a mediator) to assist other people in coming to their own agreements about how to resolve their conflict or dispute. Mediation is generally faster and less expensive than resolving issues through court and also allows for creative resolutions as it is the parties, not a judge or even the mediator, who ultimately come up with the agreement. Carrie is a trained mediator registered with the state of Indiana for both domestic relations and non-domestic relations civil issues.
There are many instances in which a person might want to change their name. Perhaps a woman kept her married name when she got divorced because she had young children but now they are grown and she wants her maiden name back. Or maybe a child was given his/her mother's last name but now the parents would like to change it to the father's. A person might also want to change their name as part of a gender marker change. If you are interested in changing your name, your child's last name, or even your gender marker, Cloud Legal, LLC can help.
Good financial planning requires that you make smart decisions about your finances. For some couples, this means reaching a financial agreement about your assets, debts, and other marital obligations in the event of divorce or even death. These agreements can be made either before the marriage (prenuptial agreement) or after (postnuptial agreement). If you are interested in such an agreement, Cloud Legal, LLC can help.
Being without a valid driver’s license drastically affects your life and inhibits your ability to perform even the most basic tasks. If your Indiana driver's license is currently under suspension either by the BMV or by an Indiana Court, you may be eligible to receive specialized driving privileges (previously known as a hardship license) that will allow you to drive under certain restrictions, like back and forth to work or school, during specified hours, or with an ignition lock device. Cloud Legal, LLC can help you determine if you are eligible to request such privileges and assist you in pursing them.
