The short answer is that you would be in a world of trouble. You and she are both minors, and cannot yet be emancipated -- that is seen as adults-- because of your ages. You are barely outside the limits of the age difference that would make having sex with your 14 year old girlfriend illegal. If... Read more »
Personally dropped off my answers/responses to their consolidated discovery along with my request. They are trying to hold me in contempt for visitation but will not show me any evidence they have.

If you properly filed the discovery, and also filed the notice of discovery with the Court, then you should write them a letter and ask that they answer. If they don't respond within 10 days -- and you have both provided discovery and filed a notice of discovery -- you should file a motion to... Read more »

You have a hot mess here. You have to get into Court on this and file an action to establish paternity and custody. He is violent and you have been to jail for drug use. Find a lawyer you practices in your County and get this before a judge... the sooner the better.

My friends child accidentally filled her Water bottle with alchol that was in the fridge and brought it to school.

I think she should sit tight. If her facts are as she states, and she can convince a judge of that, she won't have a problem. What was the "clear alcohol?" If it was gin, it makes sense.
I relocated w children. I had court & other parents permission. It’s now been 3 years and my husband wants to adopt the children we would file in the state where we currently live correct since the child visitation case in Florida has been closed since we moved…

YOu file the step parent adoption with the probate court in the county in which you live.
The defendant received another court date and is convinced I filed them but the state is the plaintiff. He thought it was dropped. Why is there another court date? And am I involved?
answered on Dec 27, 2021
I am assuming that this is an Alabama Court. If not, you should ask a Tenn. lawyer.
The state is who brings the charge against the person who abused you. You are the complaining witness. You should get some counseling and stick to your guns and see this through.

I see the question is asked under "Divorce" so I will assume that you are married to the person who owns the house. If the house was acquired during the marriage, or used for the common benefit of you and the other person during the marriage, then the house is subject to being divided in... Read more »

A person can prepare papers (pleadings) for his or her own divorce. If one person prepares pleadings for another person, that is probably the unauthorized practice of law. There is no requirement that pleadings must be completed by an attorney.
answered on May 24, 2021
Only if you go back to court and modify support. Also, the child does not make the decision who who he wants to live with.
I didnt honor them I was incarcerated, in fact I was in prison when I received the order for child support. Unfortunately, I've been to prison 3 different times while she was a minor making it impossible to make payments. I have recently found a job but I'm being garnished because of the... Read more »

Your problem is this, past due child support payments are final judgements each month they remain unpaid. A court does not have the power relieve you of that. You may be able to get relief from some of the interest due, but the fact that you didn't pay while in prison does not help. You can... Read more »
i have not had my child support amended when my oldest turned 19. my youngest had cancer and i knew she would need it. the reason i owe arears is due to surgeries and health issues. i tried contacting child services at the time, but never got thru to anyone there.
answered on Dec 14, 2020
You cannot remove past due child support amounts. They are final judgements against you in the month that they are unpaid. You can attack a judgment on some very narrow grounds, but not based on what you have laid out. You should have gone back to court when your income changed. You can modify... Read more »
My mother has paid 1500 of a 2000 contract. 500 of that was after we already expressed worries about the date.

If the contract is governed under Alabama law, you should look at the contract itself. ALabama is a very conservative state in terms of contract law. The terms of the contract will govern, and courts are very reluctant to decide that this is just unfair to you. You should hire a lawyer in the state... Read more »
Her and her mother threaten my son with not being able to see his baby if he doesn't jump to her every demand. They are 18 and 19. It will be a bigger issue once the baby gets here. Were do I start legally helping him establishing his rights
answered on Nov 12, 2020
The first thing your son has to do is learn what his rights are. If he wants a right to the child he is going to have to go to court. He should sign the birth certificate. If they attempt to stop him, he should register with the Putatative Father's Registery (Ala. Code 26-10C-1). After the... Read more »

The first question in cases like this is "what court will hear your request for visitation." You don't say if there is a court order establishing paternity and ordering child support. That is important. If the child is an Alabama resident, Alabama may be the right court. Or, if the... Read more »

The legal father of the child is the man to whom the mother was married. If he never denies the child, and accepts the child as his, you cannot be held responsible for the child and you also cannot assert any right to the child. See Ex Parte Presse.
I want to start an LLC, as an absentee landlord & investor, I wan to employ a contractor whom will inspect my potential properties and sign purchase agreements, as well as other important documents for the procurement of properties. Is this legal to do in Alabama?
answered on Jun 16, 2020
Possible and very easy. Just execute a special power of attorney empowering the person whom you want to sign documents to do just that. Be careful and make sure it is properly drafted.
Once above program is paid will I only have to pay restitution? Or will I have to continue paying the monthly supervision fee, and drug screening fee?
answered on Jun 2, 2020
You should go look at the probation order that you received from the Court. You signed it. If it requires you to do things -- then you do it. Continue with the program. The order is often a yellow page out of a form. In any event, that will tell you what you have to do. You just have to do what it... Read more »
I don't want to have to pay for neither one. We both make around the same amount of money !
answered on May 28, 2020
If she gets custody of the child you will certainly pay child support based on your income and her income. Alimony in a 5 year marriage is unlikely, given the changes in the law concerning alimony. There is no way for anyone to tell you how your case will be resolved concerning these issues without... Read more »
