Robert Jason De Groot's answer
You can probably get your gun rights back 8 years after you have completed all requirements. As far as expungement goes, I need to know a lot more facts. If you were convicted of any crime you cannot get a sealing or expungement.

Robert Jason De Groot's answer
Perhaps legal aid in your community can help you. None of the attorneys on this website do work for free for people, and what you have described requires a lot of work. Many offer free initial consultations, so perhaps you should set up a few appointments and find out what you need to do, which is probably to file a motion for enforcement.

Terrence H Thorgaard's answer
All US states, including Florida, allow \"no-fault\" divorces. What that means is that should one spouse want a divorce he or she can get it. Marriage counselling might be required, however. If you have persuasive evidence that to allow the girlfriend to be in contact with the children, supervised visitation might be ordered; otherwise not.

Robert Jason De Groot's answer
It depends upon the facts, and you have not given enough of them. For instance, are you buying at auction or prior to auction? Has there been a judgment entered or not? It is best to go see a local real estate attorney for the specific advice that you need, instead of making a big investment and finding out that things were not as they appeared to be.

Not enough facts here. To continue past the age of 18, for a completely disabled child, one has to move for it in the divorce court. You should be looking into social security disability benefits for this child.

Robert Jason De Groot's answer
The answer to these questions can only be given by an attorney in VT who knows all the facts and circumstances. Is it possible? Perhaps. But it is also possible that you could be extradited back to VT, and that does not usually happen with misdemeanors, but it does with felonies. Assault can be a felony in FL, do you know whether you were charged with a felony or a misdemeanor? Contact a criminal defense attorney in VT who has decades of experience.

Robert Jason De Groot's answer
What are the facts? This is just a question. I do not think that the cops should be required to tell someone that filing a false police report is a crime. That is just common sense. Each county in the state has different forms that the law enforcement personell use for witness statements, it might be on quite a few of the 67 counties forms. Sufficient facts must be proven by the state, beyond and to the exlusion of any reasonable doubt, not just written language on paperwork, for there to be a...

You applied for government assitance, and what the government will do is go after him for the government assistance that you have received in the form of getting an order that he must pay child support. In a paternity action, that can include costs and attorney\'s fees. It can also include hospital expenses, the expenses of the birth.

Before you record someone in your own home, I believe that you must inform them that you are recording. It might be a third degree felony if you do not. In order to answer your question with a solid opinion letter, I would have to do a mountain of research on this particular topic, as almost any attorney would.

Whether you have a case to get your money back, you would have to hire an attorney to find out and would have to pay the attorney probably more than it is worth. It will not hurt to go see a local real estate litigator for the specific advice that you need.
