    You have not provided enough information and the answer to the question depends on how the prosecutor charges the crime. However, weapons offenses carry a mandatory parole ineligibility time. Assuming that this is not your first offense, if convicted or if you plead guilty, you are facing a minimum of three years. The Graves Act states that you the parole ineligibility is 1/3 to 1/2 of the term imposed, but not less than three years.

    First of all, it you needed surgery, you would hire a professional. . . someone who had been to medical school and understood all of the things that could potentially go wrong. You are representing yourself on a first degree felony charge. You are ineligible for PTI. PTI stands for pretrial intervention. It is designed to give first offenders charged with relatively minor affairs have a second chance. In general, only those charged with a misdemeanor or perhaps a 3d dgree offense will be...

    This is an easy one. Lawyers generally bill by the hour. When one of the parties is headed for the divorce court kicking and screaming, meaning, that he or she can't or won't agree on anything . . . even those items that are "no-brainers", it will cost you and him more money. For the most part, the party who can't or won't agree is usually the party who does not want a divorce. However, at the end of the day, I find that most people relent. The system in ot set up for fighting over...

    Generally, all of the property acquired during the course of the marriage must be divided on an equitable basis. While your husband may think that because the house is in his name, he could be in for a rude awakening! You are currently living in the house a husband and wife. It is presumed that you contribute to the household and the ability to pay for and maintain the house. Your contribution may not be totally a function of the amount of money your contribute. Other factors come into...

    Once you have filed for the divorce, your attorney will have to diligently try to find him using all of the modern tools available: internet, postal search, and check with the military. If after diligent inquiry, your spouse can not be found, the attorney will file a motion with the court asking for alternate service. This means that you will be able to publish notice of the divorce in the newspaper. Assuming that you have no common assets and no children, the divorce can be completed in...

    YOur question raises a number of questions. First, since you seemed to have a sizeable estate subject to equitable distribution, I would assume that one of the assets was your pension. Most judgements of divorce plan for the reduction in the supporting spouse's income at the time of retirement. And, I should add that that retirement at age 65 is considered standard. I am curious about your wife's access to social security. At any rate, you need to bring your jedugement of divorce and all...

    I practice in NJ, but I suppose the rules are similar. In NJ you would file a Motion to Enforce Litigant's Rights. If she works, you can have the court garnish her wages.

    You are inviting a problem. The neighbors will surely learn of his status and if you are reported to Child Protective Services it could become problematic for you.

    You initiated the harm that befell you. I would move on with my life and let sleeping dogs lie. You must have expected a response when you slapped his face, and you knew then he is bigger and stronger than you.

    You have a problem. Restraining orders in NJ are permenent. although a permanent order could not have been issued without you. I would contact the court and request a hearing. Let the court find her.
