I got pulled over 2 days ago for speeding through a school zone. The officer told me I was going 29 in a 15mph zone. I never got a ticket before. My dad told me I could lose my license, is that true? What should I do?
You will not lose your license, unless this is a 2nd offense. It will be 3 points added to your license which could affect your insurance rates. Plead not guilty and get a lawyer, as your chances to get zero points will be better with a lawyer. Also, depending on the county, some judges will let...Read more »

Let's backtrack. If "your" two girls are two of the three children that you and your BF have together, then your BF has just as much legal right to have them as you do. If the two of you can't agree on who will have legal and physical custody of your three children, however, then one of you will...Read more »

We do not currently have an official custody arrangement. It has been 9 years since we divorced. The children are both 15 years old. We are afraid to go for court for one because the children don't want to see their father more than they have to if we fail to get sole custody. However, the father... Read more »
I am not sure what safe legally means? The father has an equal right to see his children, so a court may order visitation. The children's viewpoint is one of 16 factors the court considers in ordering visitation. Here is where it gets nasty. Florida is a member of the custody compact but they...Read more »
Eventually. The idea is that they will hopefully pick you up when you are out and about. But every county does roundups every so often. Ideally, they will catch you in your car, for a speeding ticket, then you are an easy target. Eventually, they will come to get you though (holidays are a...Read more »

Realistically, you'll be making 100% of the parental decisions as long as he's incarcerated, and you don't need a court order to do that. However, once he's out, there could be some friction between you two if you can't always agree on child rearing. If you think that's likely, you may want to...Read more »

Good luck with that, honestly. You could file a motion with the court seeking a return of your computers, and cite the extraordinary circumstance of needing them to earn a living, but typically evidence and "instruments of crime" are kept in police possession until resolution of the case....Read more »
