You are asking your child's other parent a question about where they are taking your child and they are ignoring you so to prevent them from taking the child you grab their keys. After doing so they push you into a window, twist your arm and punch you. Are they legally justified?

Of course not!!! But you already know that. You are being abused. See a lawyer. As an alternative, consider going to the County courthouse and swearing out a warrant against him for Protection from Abuse. (PFA) The Circuit or District Court Clerks will probably help you fill out the form.... Read more »

Assuming that is a question, the answer is yes the police can sign a warrant. If they become aware of a bank robbery they can arrest the bank robber. You made the police aware that your husband committed violence on you. They can arrest him. They do not need your permission.

Wrecked the car but didnt hit anyone else. She is threatening to press charges against him if he doesn't buy her another car by end of the week. The wreck just happened last night. Can she do that?
answered on Jul 9, 2020
No, under the facts as you have given them she cannot do that. On the other hand, if it turns out he did NOT have her permission, then she can, but it won't get her anything since he will then have to be spending money on a criminal defense attorney.
But beyond that, and there's... Read more »

This is 2 months after stop. Is that legal?
answered on Mar 4, 2019
Its legal if there really was a traffic offense and he just didn't write it up at the time. On the other hand, if there originally was no traffic offense, and the officer is lying and just made up a traffic offense so that he could make a possession charge stick, then its not legal.... Read more »

It depends. Why did the officer pick him up? Did he murder someone? If so, the officer can arrest him and take him to jail. Did he commit some kind of assault on another student? Or a teacher? If so, the officer can arrest him and take him to jail. If the officer's purpose had nothing... Read more »

I live in a neighborhood with a HOA. My house is on a culdesac with an empty lot next to us (the empty lot has been deemed not build-able). I want to extend my driveway about two-feet towards the empty lot, but still on my property.

That's a question that can't be answered without looking the HOA's official documents, any subdivision regulations that apply and any local city, town or county ordinances that apply. Here's a short un-researched educated guess (that may or may not be correct): If none of the... Read more »

Yes, you should worry. You posted this under "Federal Crimes". Its unlikely to be a federal crime, unless you took the girl across a state line for the purpose of having sex with her, or maybe if you had sex with her on federal property, like Redstone Arsenal, which is next door to your...

No. Not unless you sue him for divorce and win, and probably not even then.

You need to hire a good divorce lawyer and tell him or her... Read more »
My friend stole his grandpa's truck and came and picked me and a guy up. His grandpa is pressing charges what would you think the results would be? I'm 14 years of Age in Alabama
answered on Feb 3, 2018
With a good lawyer you probably won’t be found guilty of anything because under the facts as stated you didn’t do anything. With no lawyer you may get caught up in the system and not be able to avoid a conviction. On the brighter side, your friend is probably not guilty of the felony crime if... Read more »

answered on Jan 21, 2018
Usually, the court will continue the case at least once in order to give the complainant one more chance to show up in court. Sometimes the judge will send the officers or deputies out to bring the complainant to court. If the complainant cannot be found the case will be dismissed, although in... Read more »

Maybe, and maybe not. These are usually state charges, but if the offense(s) occurred on federal property, for example, one of our several military bases, a federal courthouse, or a post office, or involved a federal officer or employee, the charge would most likely be federal.
