I am 17 years old and a citizen of The United States. When I was 8 my custody was granted to my mom when she got divorced. Later she immigrated to the United States and brought me along. She now bought me a plane ticket and are forcing me to go back to My dad who lives in China. Does she have the... Read more »
You would have to consult with an expert on the laws of China to determine whether your father could "refuse to accept" you. But if your mother has custody of you she can, until you reach the age of majority, require you to take the flight.
I was sitting a parked car in the passenger seat of a vehicle with the car keys in my lap. while the driver was inside an apartment. I fell asleep, and I woke up to police. They pulled me out and searched. I had nothing on me but they found "7 or 8" OZ of heroin or meth, a lot of both, 100's of... Read more »
I don't see anything in the original question suggesting that the officer "observed a controlled substance" prior to searching the vehicle. Without any reasonable suspicion, I would question whether there was probable cause to search the vehicle.
.....beneficiary and I am a co-Trustee (she is not a Trustee) and her brother is the other co-trustee, versus signing limited POA over to just me? The limited POA would be to sell a condominium and handle the funds generated. This condo is in her name and she owned it before she married her current... Read more »
In general, if she gives the trustees a limited POA, the responsibility would probably be better spelled out via the trust documents as well as just the POA. And, of course, you and your brother would have to agree; that's more protection for her.
Our home was recently foreclosed in Orange County, Florida. The court has postponed the auction because we are about to close on the sale of the property to settle the debt.

I hired a moving company solely to pack and move my belongings into a truck. When the work was completed, the company’s rep agreed to not charge for packing materials and issued an invoice accordingly, which was promptly paid. Five months later, the company’s owner is demanding that I pay for... Read more »
No, child support is payable to the custodial parent (your mother in this case); not the child. It might be possible if the mother assigns her rights to you or (if she's dead) if you are her personal representative.

I fail to see how any alleged misrepresentations in the application would be relevant to show negligence on the part of you or your son. If you are a witness to the accident, your honesty might be relevant, but otherwise I see no problem with cashing the check.
There is a fence around the parameter of the complex and it was presented as the whole lot was ours. in fact, it was presented as a premium lot that would be easy to fence in because of the back fence already being there. I spoke with neighbors and no was aware that there is a 10ft strip of public... Read more »
My fiancé received a letter from a law firm for tickets from 20 years ago for 2 tickets from another state. One for speeding 15 mph and one for possession of alcohol by a minor. It states he needs to appear in court or pay $500. Is this something they can still go after?
If the tickets were from another state, you should ask your question in the Justia section for that state. But the chances are that if he was ticket by a police officer a judgment of guilty has long-since been entered on those tickets; a SOL would not apply. There is an interstate compact on...Read more »

She is saying she is going to move next month now that I've caught her but she's saying she taking my son with her. We... Read more »
It wouldn't make much sense to seek a TRO after she moves and takes the child with her because at that stage you would be seeking to restrain her from doing something she would have already done. Find a family law attorney and file for temporary orders immediately.

He or she could be arrested and charged with a crime. Depending on a number of circumstances, you could be facing a combination of some very serious penalties. And "sexual harrassment (sic)" is not a defense; don't do it.
