Cary B. Hall's answer It doesn't sound like your child's pediatrician instructed you to withhold visitation from Dad; rather, only that your son take medication for 8 weeks. Is there any reason the medication can't be given to Dad to administer to your son during weekend visitation?
Sounds like your son's father has a good case against you. Include your son's father in the medical treatment, and follow the court order. Best of luck to you.
Mr. Ryan L Hyde's answer Double jeopardy is the concept that you cant be tried twice for the same charge. This means that when you win a trial the CW cant retry you for the same thing. As always, there are exceptions.
Your situation does not appear in anyway to be jeopardy related. Your aituation is confuaing but it seems like maybe you refused chemical testing in the DUI, which leads to a 1 year suspension, even if you arent convicted.
When things are confusing the best thing to do is talk to an...
Kathryn Hilbush's answer If you filed for support and the case is still open, perhaps. The first ting you should do is to contact the domestic Relations Office where you filed and then meet with an experienced family law attorney in your area to determine what, if any, recourse you may have.
Kathryn Hilbush's answer Many considerations come into play when a court decides how custody of a young child should be structured. I would suggest that, based on what you've indicted here, it's unlikely the father will be precluded from seeing your daughter. Perhaps the answer may be a different type of schedule, one in which he has multiple, short visits during the week. Those are usually better for young children. It might be helpful to you to consult in person with an experienced family law attorney in your area...
Peter Munsing's answer If you can show there was an injury. Technically you do, but whether it's worth bringing depends on whether there was an injury. Contact an attorney for the county where it happened.
Peter Munsing's answer No though New Jersey is a "verbal threshold " case. You need to contact a member of the NJAssn for Justice for the county where it happened. If you don't know anyone let me know (phone) and I can find someone for you (I'm an NJAJ member, but not a NJ attorney).
Andrea E. Mertz's answer You may be charged. However, you have some defenses that you and your attorney should be able to use. Contact an attorney immediately upon being charged to discuss how to proceed.
Kathryn Hilbush's answer Technically yes. The state rules require the notice, but I suggest that you spend the time to consult with an experienced family law attorney where you currently live to obtain an opinion on how your court there will likely treat a situation like yours.
Kathryn Hilbush's answer This question is, on the surface, rather odd because, unless she has obtained an order from the bankruptcy court allowing her divorce case to proceed, it cannot because the bankruptcy, as a federal action, overrides all state court actions relating to her assets. If you don't have an attorney, you'd better consult with an experienced family law attorney about your situation.
Cary B. Hall's answer If you can't afford an attorney, you *can* afford a public defender if you are formally charged with crimes. Contact your local office and set up a consultation. Best of luck to you.
Cary B. Hall's answer Almost assuredly yes -- and if there's no custody agreement which says so, she'll easily be able to get one. This is a battle NOT worth fighting, unless you have imminent fear of physical harm to the kids if you provide your address to your ex-wife. And since she apparently has them at least part-time, you're not going to be able to make that claim. Give her your address.
Cary B. Hall's answer Yes, a case that you owe her money, but not really that you're overdue on payments. Still, I can see a magisterial district judge asking about what the verbal arrangement was, and entering a judgment anyway on the full amount due. The lower court won't craft a new contract for you with distinct payment terms, unfortunately for you; it'll just enter a judgment in a numerical amount. Best advice is to try to work it out with her, and get *those* terms in writing.
Cary B. Hall's answer You're really going to need to sit down with a family law attorney to ask those questions (and get the answers you're looking for). If were that easy, you could get a library book or watch a YouTube video to get your answers -- but it's not, and you can't. All family law cases are fact-specific, and require more thought than what can be devoted here in a seven-sentence answer, unfortunately. But I do strongly recommend that you get a legal consultation ASAP.
