G. Rex Flynn Jr.'s answer You should contact an attorney as soon as possible. An attorney would be able to assist you by getting all of the facts of your specific case and determining what bases there are to challenging the stop and search as well as any other possible defenses. After reviewing all of that information as well as the police report, the attorney would be able to advise as to the strength of these defenses as well as all of the potential outcomes, and to assist with mitigation.

Susan Fremit's answer 15 felonies? Reason not to get bond is that he may not show up for court or he’s a threat to the community. Hire a local experienced criminal defense attorney to increase the chances of him getting bond.
Matthew Lane Kreitzer's answer Adoption. The most preferred method would be an agreed step parent adoption. Biological father is entitled ot notice, and if biological father does not agree, you will need to have a child and prove that termination is in the child's best interest. These are hard cases, and mere abandonment rarely rises to a significant level if the biological father wants to resume a relationship.
Matthew Lane Kreitzer's answer It may or may not be a trial. There are any other number of things it could be including a "GAL review." Without reviewing your court documents, a lawyer cannot answer your question. My advice is to contact a lawyer immediately and schedule a review of your documentations to better understand your rights and what is likely to happen.

Bryan J. Jones' answer You could be charged with contributing to the delinquency of a minor. That's a class 1 misdemeanor. That's probably the most that would happen in this case, based on what you've said in the question.
Gary D. Godman's answer He could request you return or compensate him for any items that he owned that were taken. If you're served with a lawsuit, talk to an attorney about what you did and didn't take, and whose stuff it was.
Gary D. Godman's answer Unless the court order says otherwise, every party in a custody case has to give at least 30 days' written notice to the court and the other parties of any intent to move. The other parent can then bring suit in court to challenge the move if they wish. Talk to a local family law attorney to review your current order and the history of the case to see if this is a good idea.
Gary D. Godman's answer Unless this person is stalking you (in a legal sense - putting you in fear of death or injury), there's not much to be done. It's your parents' job to keep you out of trouble, and if this is how they choose to do it, there is likely nothing illegal about it.
Gary D. Godman's answer This is not a question that can be answered with a simple reply on the internet. There is a lot going on with this case, and you need to speak to a local family law attorney to plan your case accordingly. There are many instances where a relative or non-relative can obtain custody of a child, and an experienced family law attorney will be able to guide you appropriately.
Gary D. Godman's answer You'll have to show your financially able to be independent, but, more importantly, your parents are going to have to agree to your emancipation. If you can manage it, talk to a family law attorney. Another good person to talk with would be your school counselor, who may be able to point you to someone to review your situation. Good luck!
