You are first and foremost looking at a potential criminal matter. Your first call should be to the local police. If you know the person's identity, you could also look into contacting a civil attorney.
I was charged with stalking a Superintendent of a public school. Pled no contest due to mistreatment in jail. I was wondering if this is even a fair charge or if I am protected due to free speech? I have a civil case against the Superintendent and if I win will I be able to introduce that as new... Read more »
Yes, you certainly can be charged criminally for stalking public figures. It happens with movie stars as well as, apparently, local superintendents. Being a public figure does not remove all notions of privacy. Even constitutional rights have limits. You could show up at school board meetings and...Read more »
You'd need to contact the school district's transportation office. But I would think from the child care facility's perspective, if the bus stop is on their property, they are incurring significant liability, and absolutely can limit access to that bus stop to enrolled children.
The most likely outcome is that the father will be entitled to parenting time according to where and with whom he deems appropriate. That means that when it is his parenting time, this new baby may be brought around his or her three half-siblings (and the wife).
The mother knows the child isn’t his and has moved to another state when the child was a baby. It’s been 10yrs. Will identifying paternity be enough to stop/close child support case and payments. Will she owe him for all the money that she has taken?
Once your fiance signed the birth certificate (and I presume acknowledgment of paternity), that's saying "I have no reason to dispute paternity". There is a legal mechanism to revoke paternity, but after 10 years, that would be some tough sledding. Further, once his name is on a birth certificate,...Read more »
Depends on what's happening. I would imagine the sentence involves paying a certain amount (all or substantially all of the back support) or serve a number of days in jail. If that is the case, there is no bail for a bondsman to work out.
Good question! But no, a civil and criminal are two different tracks. The main reason being is the vastly different burden of proof. In criminal matters, you are dealing with "beyond a reasonable doubt", which is like 90% certainty. In civil matters, you are most often dealing with preponderance of...Read more »
You may be confusing powers of attorney and guardianship. These are two completely different animals. One is very simple and does not involve a court; the other is more complex and does require court involvement.
We were on the same cell phone plan through Xfinity mobile she turn off my cell phone four months ago when we broke up but she just recently turned it back on what can she use against me in court if we have a shared cell phone plan together
The more relevant question is what could be found to be used against you that go to the best interest of the child factors? Are there pictures of you with drugs or guns posing with your son? This isn't a marriage, so even if there are "adult" things to be found, the question the judge will seek...Read more »
He says he has to sell or lose it to the bank so he’s given me 30 days to move which he mailed to me. No court date has been filed until after the 39days which I do need more time because I’ve been unemployed Since April but will start a new job aug 20th. What can I do to get more time before...

Your best bet is to communicate with your landlord. Understandably, he wants to sell the property with you out of it. Perhaps you can negotiate a bit of give-and-take whereby you agree to allow showings while you are there in exchange for 60-90 days.
If a judgment has been made, you will need to make contact with your landlord and ask for more time. Once the time period in the judgment expires (usually 10 days), the landlord can request a writ of eviction at anytime.
To the bank, this is a business transaction. It doesn't matter if you're married or not; to the bank, you're jointly responsible for this date. What happens between you are your before is between you two and is not of the bank's concern.

Either party may file a motion with the court to have a hearing on the issue so the judge can decide what happens. If the daughter needs a hearing aid (and that doesn't sound to be in dispute), the someone should buy them, and that person would be entitled to reimbursement as a medical expense.

Significant material facts are missing here. The questions reads like "there I was walking down the street and next thing I know I'm being charged with drunk driving". If I had to guess and read between the lines here, it sounds like this drunk adult was on his property. The teenagers either...Read more »
His mom has had a active cps case or investigation most of the 7 yearz of his life. Has no job, lives in efficiency housing. My son is constantly missing school and constant doctor and emergency room visits.
You may certainly file. You would need to establish that a change of circumstance or substantial cause exists, which it sounds like there may. One question you should be prepared to address is "why now"?
