You’re not entitled to do discovery without filing a complaint first. Who would you sue? For what? Idaho Administrative Rules don’t allow you to get that information and the prison definitely wouldn’t open itself to scrutiny and possible charges if they gave you the private telephone records...Read more »
A judge has a lot of latitude to say what he feels will impact someone he is speaking to or sentencing or ruling on a request for ROR or lowered bond etc. Judges have an ethical duty to be courteous and to treat every person who comes before the court with dignity....Read more »
4 out of 6 of his children he doesn't have any contact with nor will they allow him any contact. 2 of them live out of state and the other 2 live 45 minutes away. He also wants to adopt my 5 year old when we get married due to him being the only "Dad" she has ever known.
That's a really good question. Adoption is not a misterial act by a judge. It requires a Petition for adoption and the Magistrate WILL examine the Petition, which includes all kinds of information and the question probably will come up at some point: why would you want to adopt someone else's...Read more »

Your ex-husband is obviously a jerk and you're lucky to be free of him. His girl friend is also less than a lady. She has absolutely NO PARENTAL RIGHTS WHATSOEVER to those kids, period. You have NO obligation to let her have them on "his time," and no Magistrate will ever hold you in contempt...Read more »

Accident occurred as an adolescent but due to my injuries sustained in accident and lack of medical care due to legal guardians ignorance I now suffer from constant pain as an adult. Can I still seek compensation for pain and suffering due to an accident that occurred 10 or 11 years ago?
The Idaho statute of limitations is generally 2 years. If you are under 18 it can be extended for either an additional 6 years or until you turn 20 whichever comes first. SO if it been more than 10 years than the unfortunate answer is no
I am 17. Roughly two years ago when my baby sister was first born, my mother agreed to pay me $20 every time she was gone more than two hours and I had to watch the baby. Well, she now owes me over $600 and there has been multiple instances where she has left me overnight alone with my 5 younger... Read more »
Courts in most states would construe such an arrangement as a gratuitous promise, unsupported by consideration, and therefore unenforceable at law. In short if you attempted to engage in litigation to recover the requested sum it is unlikely that you will be successful.

That's going to depend on what identification documents the prison will accept. Call the prison where your boyfriend is being held and ask them what forms of ID would be accepted for visits. A foreign passport should be sufficient for them.
I'm a bit confused as to the details of your question. I can't tell who your son lives with now, if there is a guardianship case that is designating who is his guardian, or if you are talking about custody. I'm also unsure jurisdictionally whether the case would be in Montana (where the child...Read more »

10 days before I was to get married, i realized it was a big mistake.

Firstly, I think you should respond to their letter and tell them that their claim is unsubstantiated. You did not make or require that they purchase the tickets or the car rental in the first place. They did that on their own accord and for their daughter's wedding. I would also mention the...Read more »
