You are first and foremost looking at a potential criminal matter. Your first call should be to the local police. If you know the person's identity, you could also look into contacting a civil attorney.
I was charged with stalking a Superintendent of a public school. Pled no contest due to mistreatment in jail. I was wondering if this is even a fair charge or if I am protected due to free speech? I have a civil case against the Superintendent and if I win will I be able to introduce that as new... Read more »
Yes, you certainly can be charged criminally for stalking public figures. It happens with movie stars as well as, apparently, local superintendents. Being a public figure does not remove all notions of privacy. Even constitutional rights have limits. You could show up at school board meetings and...Read more »
You'd need to contact the school district's transportation office. But I would think from the child care facility's perspective, if the bus stop is on their property, they are incurring significant liability, and absolutely can limit access to that bus stop to enrolled children.
Fines, penalties, and costs that were ordered as part of his criminal sentence would not be dischargeable. However, if this cost is to reimburse the jail for his lodging and food costs while he was there, that could be dischargeable, because it's like rent and an ordinary contract claim. You...Read more »
The most likely outcome is that the father will be entitled to parenting time according to where and with whom he deems appropriate. That means that when it is his parenting time, this new baby may be brought around his or her three half-siblings (and the wife).
The mother knows the child isn’t his and has moved to another state when the child was a baby. It’s been 10yrs. Will identifying paternity be enough to stop/close child support case and payments. Will she owe him for all the money that she has taken?
Once your fiance signed the birth certificate (and I presume acknowledgment of paternity), that's saying "I have no reason to dispute paternity". There is a legal mechanism to revoke paternity, but after 10 years, that would be some tough sledding. Further, once his name is on a birth certificate,...Read more »
Depends on what's happening. I would imagine the sentence involves paying a certain amount (all or substantially all of the back support) or serve a number of days in jail. If that is the case, there is no bail for a bondsman to work out.
Good question! But no, a civil and criminal are two different tracks. The main reason being is the vastly different burden of proof. In criminal matters, you are dealing with "beyond a reasonable doubt", which is like 90% certainty. In civil matters, you are most often dealing with preponderance of...Read more »
You may be confusing powers of attorney and guardianship. These are two completely different animals. One is very simple and does not involve a court; the other is more complex and does require court involvement.
It doesn't matter what type of housing (co op or otherwise) the agency disclosure needs to be provided consistent with the licensing rules. IF the license requires it, then yes. Usually both buyer and seller only need to sign when there is a 'dual agency' but without specifics it is impossible to...Read more »
Depending upon the facts and circumstances, it could potentially form the basis for appellate relief (if an appeal is still available) or a motion for relief from judgment. You should consult with an appellate lawyer to see what, if any, potential grounds for relief are available.

Buyer's bank loan feel through because he is going through a divorce. The agreement close date was 08/16. Our realtor sent us an amendment late last night to extend the close date under the same terms. We have not signed the amendment and want to change the terms to require the earnest money...

Without seeing the offer and reading the various contingencies it is impossible to say for sure. The offer MAY be 'dead' meaning you can both walk away without issues, or there may be a default requiring action.
If the offer is 'dead' and they want to extend, you can make whatever changes...Read more »
Was the offer contingent on qualifying for a specific mortgage and was that contingency not satisfied? Without actually seeing the terms of the agreement it is impossible to say for sure, but IF it was drafted properly and you didn't qualify for the mortgage, then you MAY be able to call the deal...Read more »
