Hector E. Quiroga's answer Maybe. More information is needed. Acquisition of citizenship for a child born abroad is tricky, especially in the case of a USC father and an illegitimate birth. You would do well to consult with an immigration attorney who can advise you based on all the details of the case.
Kristina M. Bergsten's answer You could wait until she tries to sue you in court for the dog, then you would have to fight it out in court. But, since this is being raised as an estates issue, it might be best to contact and estate/probate attorney to help guide you.
Donald C Eby's answer You can evict the tenant for failure to pay rent and/or breach of the lease by allowing additional occupants. Either way, the first step is to post a legally sufficient Demand for Compliance or Possession. If you are unfamiliar with the process you may want to hire an attorney to help you, many attorneys handle evictions on a low flat fee.
Donald C Eby's answer Seems like a very complicated factual situation. You should contact an attorney and ask for an in office or telephone consultation so that you can have a conversation about the facts and how a judge may apply the law.
18CR2885 is a case number. The 18 reflects the year filed (2018), the CR refers to a felony "criminal case" (misdemeanor cases use an "M"), and the 2885 reflects the actual case number (it actually means it would have been the 2885 felony filed in that jurisdiction).
Title 18 of the Colorado Revised Statutes is the criminal code. Individual sections then correspond with a criminal charge. The citation generally follows this example: C.R.S. Section 18-3-101....
John Kenneth Joyner's answer Lawyers will generally charge an investigative fee to see if your case is even eligible to be sealed or expunged, and then have a separate fee for doing the actual sealing process.
If you want to try and do it yourself, there are filing fees, certified mailing expenses, and court fees. I think the filing fee is $224 for the initial petition. You should research CRS § 24-72-702 through 710 to see if you are even eligible for sealing.
John Kenneth Joyner's answer The protective order restrains whoever it is being enforced against. The restrained party has the obligation to make sure they do not come in contact with the protected parties, whoever they may be. If the protective order includes no contact and/or requires whoever the restrained party is be a certain distance away from the protected parties, then it is the obligation of the person who is restrained to stay away from those who are protected. If you need this order modified, you can request...
Russell Hebets' answer More information is needed to give you an estimate regarding this cost. The first step is ensuring that you qualify to petition the court to seal your record. For a misdemeanor, this would generally require an acquittal at trial, a dismissal prior to trial, or a successfully completed deferred judgment and sentence.
Juliet Piccone's answer There really is not enough information to answer this question properly. Does your aunt live in Colorado? Can you get her to tell you who she gave your dog to? Is your dog microchipped? Is she lying to you, i.e. did she in fact lose your dog or bring it to a shelter? You should investigate all those issues and consult with an experienced animal attorney because this is not a black and white answer.
Juliet Piccone's answer I'd suggest you repost your question with what it is you want to know and more facts. Was this an expensive dog from a breeder or a rescue? Or just a purchase from a private party/ non animal dealer? You probably need an actual consultation with an experienced animal attorney to figure out if you have any recourse.
