Without determining whether the police are right or wrong here, they are right about one practical aspect of the law: you won't win an argument about law or fact with the police on the streets; that is what courts are for.
Your first amendment right to watch the police while in public...Read more »

I doubt that they will allow you to have a reconsideration.

Depends...police reports are not evidence, but if what happened is markedly different from what you reported, you could be charged with making a false report. It is, however, not uncommon that witness or victim testimony differs from what was in the report. Expect the prosecutor to try to reconcile...Read more »
The officer left out exculpatory information told to him by a witness. That witness was a confidential informant who wasn't named in the affidavit. The officer swore to the witnesses reliability . If what this witness said he witnessed is true. What my accuser alledges cannot be true.

Contrary to some opinion, judges are not mindless or impractical. Most every family court judge has seen this sort of scenario before. The dad will get some parenting time if he asks for it, and so long as he is appropriate with it. No, the court will not just send your son off on a plane or in a...Read more »

You cannot force someone to give or sell property. If her name is the only one in the mortgage/deed she will need to voluntarily sell (‘sign off’) the property or you will need to probate the property after she passes. The real issue here is that if there’s a mortgage that will complicate...Read more »
I'm not entirely sure, but the burden will be on you to convince a court that those funds are protected from seizure. That is a difficult argument to make when multiple funds are commingled into one account and then seized.
