So I'm 16 and my mom has a vary abusive boyfriend (not physically) and he just threatened to and I quote "ring his little neck. " (my brothers 18 and hes 31) is it possible to get him out of the house for good?
No. You cannot tell him to stay out, but you could certainly apply for a harassment restraining order or order for protection if one is warranted. That would be your best avenue to keep him out of the home.
Yes, it's possible though such an appeal motion maybe time barred if not made soon enough. Under most circumstances, a court will not allow withdrawal of a plea or a new trial after a plea. But it would depend upon the facts of the particular case.

Respectfully, you seem to be seeking the assurance of an attorney that your proposed trademark is "safe" for purposes of a trademark registration application without actually hiring or paying for an attorney--and without disclosing what that proposed mark actually is.
I would try to determine if this is a violation that could trigger a license revocation (if too many within a year, for example), or an increase in insurance rates. If so, I would set a goal of keeping it off my driver's license record. The way to do that is through the court - by preventing a...Read more »

Is there a way to get it done fast and nicely as possible, when he is against getting advice... Read more »
"Fastest and nicest" is a pretty subjective goal. More importantly, fastest and nicest may not be "best"; rather it may simply be agreeing with everything that the other person wants. As a SAHM, you would potentially receive some level of spousal maintenance. In addition, you could ask that your...Read more »

I'm sorry for the high lead levels your daughter exhibited. You could contact a Minnesota injury attorney to discuss the matter in further detail, and it would be preferable if the attorney was experienced in toxic tort type of matters, involving exposure to hazardous substances.

No that does not mean that you are going to prison. It is stock language that ends up on a probation violation. Typically, the formal violation report will provide a recommendation of how long that you serve for the violation.
