It’s every American’s dream to own a home, but some achieve that goal only to encounter financial difficulties in the future.

Most people are completely unaware of their rights and what they can and cannot do once they’re arrested. Though many people have heard the Miranda rights on TV and in movies, they may be unsure of what the rights mean exactly, and when they are entitled to these rights as they’re being questioned by the police.

Most people believe this means that if they cannot hire a lawyer or don’t want to, a lawyer will be appointed. This isn’t always the case.
