Our son is a child in need of aid but the court granted us full custody and rights over our child. We were in the process of moving to Texas to be with family can we still move and have our case transferred. We have another hearing in 6 months and how fast can we leave

More information is needed to answer you question. Child custody jurisdiction usually requires that you and the child reside in the new state for at least 6 months before that state can handle custody matters. However, that's not automatic, and if the other parent still resides in the... Read more »

The detective still will not release my firearm when I am the owner of it and no crime was commited. What do I need to do to get my property back?
answered on Apr 16, 2018
Send the detective a certified letter requesting release of the property or the reasons why the property is not being released. If there is no response, you should contact a lawyer and have him send a letter prior to filing suit.

It could be part of the case number.

AN = Municipality of Anchorage
P = probate (?)
I have found different answers on alaska.gov

It's a federal crime for a convicted felon to possess a firearm. So unless the state site references the federal law it's incomplete.

Although you are family members, neither of you has an obligation to the other that goes beyond what two strangers would have. This isn't a matter of family law. You could report your sister's acts to the police, or you could bring a civil lawsuit yourself. Unless the property value... Read more »

No, it doesn't appear that the fact that this individual runs a private business on the side affects the validity of his investigative results. Whether or not members of the community think of him as a police officer or as a private investigator doesn't appear to matter as well. Alaska,... Read more »
The victim was 11-14. The victim told the police at age 17. The defendant was age 15-18. The defendant and victim are cousins. All of the crimes are sexual crimes

Apparently the alleged crimes occurred over a three year period. Yes, the alleged perpetrator can be charged, unless criminal charges are tolled by any applicable statute of limitations, or unless there is an applicable close-in-age exception.
Senerio: A and B trespass. C asks them to leave and they refuse. C leaves and returns with D who has a shotgun. D tells A and B to leave and they do but file a false report saying D pointed gun at them. During trial A and B are allowed to take the stand and state what D said and did (all of... Read more »

First, I disagree that C's offered testimony should have been excluded as hearsay. What A & B may have said was not offered (I suspect) for the truth of what they said, but rather for what they said. If, for example, A (according to C) said "I am going to get my gun and kill you,... Read more »

You will need to show up on the date and time. If you are actually placed on a jury panel (or "venire"), you will be given the chance to explain your attitude to the court and counsel and will probably be excused from serving on the jury.
It may well be a civil case, by the way,... Read more »

Perhaps. The way to find out is to review the exclusions for licensure.

Do you have an answer by now? Look it up in the statutes.
