Nicholas Nelson's answer Your question is someone of a complicated one. Even when records go off the public record, the government can still access them. I would certainly argue that the "not guilty" charge should not count as the "first" charge, as you were "not guilty". Note - cases are highly fact dependent and I cannot give adequate legal advice without first discussing with you the particular details of your matter in their entirety. That being said, those are my initial thoughts. Good luck!
Assuming her dad is supportive, I strongly recommend talking it through with your daughter and trying to get her to understand and come willingly. Forcing a child to come against her will might be more damaging to your relationship in the long run than giving her a bit more leeway now.

Lucas Wynne's answer You are way over your head on this and need a defense attorney. No attorney can give you a real answer until they see the charging documents and evidence. Even if the charging documents made an error, the evidence could negate that error.
Stefan Dunkelgrun's answer Document every interaction, log the time, date, the person involved, and the nature of the incident. Also document every interaction with the police. Bonus points if you have any other evidence, such as phone records.

Stefan Dunkelgrun's answer I'm sorry to hear about your situation. Unfortunately, any parental responsibility in North Dakota ended on your nineteenth birthday. They are no longer obligated to house you, feed you, or provide for you. If the care is in their name, then you no longer have a right to that either.
Please contact the Family Crisis Shelter in Williston, 421 34th street east. (701) 572-0757 and see if they can help arrange some shelter for you.
Lucas Wynne's answer You should retain a lawyer to assist you. If your story occurred as-described, you likely have a claim. Attorneys like myself assist people who are wrongfully terminated for similar reasons.
Stefan Dunkelgrun's answer If the parents are unable to sort it out between the two of them, the matter would need to go before a judge. Without further information, it is impossible to determine the outcome of such a proceeding.
Stefan Dunkelgrun's answer Federal law is supreme over state law because as a condition of Statehood, North Dakota passed an Enabling Act ceding all unclaimed land to the Federal Government for disposition. Upon meeting the appropriate criteria (e.g. homesteading), a person could be granted ownership by requesting a land patent.
