He must file an action where the District Attorney General defends the State's position. It will be difficult but if he does nothing (and within a short period from the NCIS Denial), this will haunt him for the rest of his life. He may not be prohibited from having a firearm but cannot pass the Check, which is not the same thing. He should hire a competent attorney to file the Declaratory Action.

You can make a Motion to Dismiss for the Citation not having certain statutory and due process requirements. However the Court can grant it and have you stand there while the Officer swears out a proper Arrest Warrant, which is then executed upon you. Hire a competent attorney to get some type of Diversion or Dismissal, as a drug offense history can mess up the rest of your life.

You need to hire a competent attorney to perform Title Searches on any potential Properties you might have a titled interest in. If you are an Heir-At-Law, then you can usually force a Partition Sale in Chancery. You should also check Probate in the appropriate County to see if there was an Administration of any type. The Money is probably gone unless you start Probate now and the Administrator is able to marshal up the funds. Their names might have been on the CD's or they might have been...

Your question remains open for 5 weeks; try reposting in the Patents (Intellectual Property) section. It would have a better chance of being picked up there.

More than likely a Default Judgment for money will go down against you. The Judgment Creditor can then require you to go to Court to give sworn testimony where your money is, or go to jail for Contempt. Go to the Court Hearing.

Bennett James Wills' answer
The real father should sign the affidavit of parentage. It's a terrible idea for anyone to sign a birth certificate for a child they know is not theirs. That just makes things legally more difficult down the road. You can talk to the hospital about these issues and they'll inform you of your options. Or consult counsel.

Perhaps at a local law library. My county has two great law libraries, with the electronic databases available for free. I do not know if this is available in your state, but it probably is. If not, find a local law school and speak to the librarians there.
