DVRO expired last week against my TWIN sister, but thought a year off would quell hatred/slanderous behavior so allowed lapse. As soon as expired, she began phoning and emailing my current employer (new job) with statements of "employee has history or suing former employers to extort money... Read more »

You have no responsibility to do anything. While your parents divorce certainly impacts you, you do not have any legal responsibility to do anything or be involved. If you WANT to be involved that's a different story and you could be involved as much or as little as you feel comfortable with,...Read more »
Defamation is a civil matter. The police are not going to take a report. What you are referring to is filing a false police report. Unless your mental capacity was relevant to the police matter, it is unlikely criminal charges would be sustained for falsely telling police you are schizophrenic. The...Read more »

While it is not the best practice for a loan company to grant a loan with only one of the married couple's signature on the documents, there is nothing illegal about it. Unless a divorce was currently pending and the County in which it was filed had instituted Standing Orders preventing the...Read more »
You'd have to file a complaint in court and then issue a subpoena to the platform provider to release info about the account-holder. I'm sure anyone who responds would be happy to help if you decide to hire an attorney.
Yes, if the Sheriff knowingly or recklessly made the defamatory statements. However, it sounds like you are planning to take a "pretrial intervention" deal (or have already taken the deal). While that results in the State dropping the charges, and enables you to thereafter petition for...Read more »

It’s always best practices to contact the police. Especially if this accident was not your fault, it’s always best to go through the other person’s auto insurance. I’ve seen time and again how handling it “private” backfires. If you are concerned you should file a police report.
In the car and they all were pleading with him to slow down over and over but he refused to listen and he flipped the car and my daughter almost died and her friend was also hurt is it his responsibility to pay for damages?
I'm a Washington lawyer not an Oregon lawyer. The laws are likely different between the states. But you should go consult with a personal injury attorney in the state the accident took place as soon as you can, even if it is just over the phone. Your situation will likely have multiple...Read more »

It isn't clear from your question or the sites you posted this question to, exactly what it is that you want.
