Matthew Williams' answer It's a whole lot easier if you tell us what convictions/charges you have since there are probably over 100 charges that would prevent you from getting a CCW. Certainly any felony, and any violent offense could be a problem.
Joseph Jaap's answer Yes, you have legal recourse in a divorce. Marital assets are subject to division, including assets improperly transferred. Use the Find a Lawyer tab to retain a local divorce attorney who can review all the details and advise you of your options.
Matthew Williams' answer You can try a FOIA request but if the report is not public record they don’t have to give it to you. The fact that the court ruled against your motion to compel suggests it is not. What’s in the report and why do you need it?
Matthew Williams' answer Pursuing a perjury investigation on your own is not likely to yield a good result. Your best bet at this point is probably to pursue a civil protection order for yourself and your children. Any violation of that order could be prosecuted as a separate crime.
Matthew Williams' answer That depends heavily on two things: (1) are there gun specifications? And (2) who the judge is. It will likely be several years in prison and anyone facing that should be working with an attorney.
Patrick DiChiro's answer BEING CHARGED WITH A CRIME IS DIFFERENT THAN BEING FOUND GUILTY. IF THE POLICE BELIEVE THEY HAVE PROBABLE CAUSE, THEY CAN CHARGE YOU WITH A CRIME. PROBABLE CAUSE TO ARREST IS A LOWER STANDARD THAN BEYOND A REASONABLE DOUBT, WHICH IS THE BURDEN OF PROOF THAT A PROSECUTOR WOULD NEED TO MEET IN ORDER TO FIND YOU GUILTY OF THE CRIME.
SO, THE FACT THAT YOU DID NOT KNOW HE IS STEALING WOULD BE YOUR DEFENSE, AND YOU WOULD BUILD YOUR DEFENSE AROUND THAT.
Patrick DiChiro's answer WELL, DEPENDING ON THE CHARGE, FORGERY IS USUALLY A FELONY OF THE FIFTH DEGREE, FOURTH DEGREE OR THIRD DEGRESS. A FIFTH DEGREE FELONY IS PUNISHABLE BY UP TO 12 MONTHS JAIL AND $2500.00 FINE. A FOURTH DEGREE FELONEY IS PUNISHABLE BY UP TO 18 MONTHS JAIL AND $5,000.00 FINE. THERE IS NO MANDATORY TIME WITH EITHER, SO YOU CAN GET PROBATION. THE HIGHER OFFENSES GET A LITTLE MORE TRICKY.
Patrick DiChiro's answer IF YOUR ELIGIBLE FOR EXPUNGEMENT OF THE WEAPONS CHARGE, THEN YOUR ABILITY TO GET A FIREARM WILL DEPEND UPON WHAT ELSE YOU HAVE ON YOUR RECORD AND WHETHER YOU WILL CLEAR A "BRADY" CHECK. I BELIEVE YOU STAND A GOOD CHANCE. I AM NOT SURE IF AN APPLICATION TO OBTAIN A FIREARM HAS ANY QUESTION THAT REFERENCES WHETHER YOU HAVE HAD AN EXPUNGEMENT. IF IT DOES NOT, THEN I THING YOU HAVE A GOOD CHANCE.
