Hello. The father of my child has been absent from his life for over 10 years now. My son is 13 years old. He made contact to connect with him last month. I allowed him to have his number so they can talk, and text. Then I get a letter about court. Parentage civil case. He wants visitation rights.... Read more »
You should hire an attorney or look at a legal aide organization if you cannot afford one. The courts now are hesitant to deny father's visitation rights completely--the court might order supervised visitations with the father. Each case is different and the court will decide what is in the best...Read more »
They are not married and she is 7 mo. pregnant. She can no longer stand to be near him. He is controlling, gaslights her constantly, tells her what she can and can't wear, etc. He doesn't help take care of their child and has some disturbing issues. Can she legally just take her daughter and move... Read more »
Left turn arrow just went out as I turned. I also got no insurance ticket because I didn't have current card in my car. I AM covered and got a copy from my insurance agent for court. Do you know how much the fine is for my moving violation?
The moving violation is a petty offense and the maximum fine is $1000. From my experience, prosecutors will ask for $120 fine with conviction. If you want court supervision, let the prosecutor in court know. He or she may agree to it on the spot. I think you can also call the prosecutor's...Read more »
You can certainly call the police and make a report but I am not sure what prosecutors would do with a case like this. If he was abusive I think it's important for you to notify the police so they can keep a record of it. The prosecutors will then decide if they will file charges or not.
1st speeding ticket I was 16. I got court supervision, fines and traffic class.
I am now 21, work on an ambulance and need this to go away. I just bought a 2017 Ford Fusion this week and damn, totally not used to it. It felt like I was going 60 but I guess I was going 99 in a 65 on the... Read more »
It's not a $150 ticket but you do have to go to court. If you plead guilty then you'd have a conviction on your record. Get an attorney and see if you can amend the charge down to a petty offense and ask for supervision.
When will my liscense be suspended? If my court apearance to get supervision date is before i recience the letter of suspended liscense can the court supervision let me keep my liscense to go to work???
if you get a conviction then your license would be suspended. I would hire an attorney to see if you can get supervision or the ticket dropped. If you do get 2 convictions and notice of suspension, then you'd have to hire an attorney to request a hearing with a Secretary of State hearing officer.
The protective order continues to be broken and we are still being harassed aa year-and-a-laternd he has given up parental rights in writing to his lawyer. We also have a family member who has decided to join in and harass me and my kids to a point that is very unhealthy and I would like to get... Read more »
No one here will be able to give you an advice on this situation. Use Justia to locate a family lawyer and schedule a consultation. Looks like an order of protection or a petition to enforce child support may be possible here but I am sure there is more to this story
I want to become an emancipated minor, but I'm not sure that the courts would agree with my specific situation. I've never been abused or neglected and my parents love me. The only thing is I'm extremely mature for my age, 14, and I want to enter the workforce and move out on my own. (Please don't... Read more »
If you were extremely mature for your age then you would know that without a high school diploma or any college/vocational/technical school, you will most likely be doomed to work minimum wage jobs. You say there is no abuse/neglect, so stay with your parents unless you want to work pay check to...Read more »
