Everything in the TRO filed is "Hearsay," and the only possible proof is on a cell phone as a screen shot or text message or on social media (facebook). Is any of this actually admissable in the courts?
It depends. In criminal Violation of TRO proceedings, the State would need to turn over copies of any discovery/evidence related to a person's case. In a civil proceeding that could either be in district or family court depending on whether you and the other person meet the criteria for...View More

I suggest you get an attorney and don't do anything until you speak confidentially, with your attorney. It is illegal to smoke or otherwise ingest marijuana in the State of Hawai'i, unless you have a prescription and it is illegal in the United States. I don't know why CPS would...View More
If your father is the only parent with parental rights over you, then it would make sense your father's would be the only signature needed for consent for a minor to marry. Or, you can wait until you are 18 and you don't need any parent's signature. Good luck to you.
