  • My soon to be ex-husband wants joint legal custody because he doesn't want to "surrender his rights as a father"

    To our four month old. He left me while I was pregnant, he had an affair and I only saw him at doctors appointments. He made sure he was there for the birth of his son and for a month after but has been in and out of his life since, always in a ru...

    Daniel’s Answer

    It does not matter who left who. The analysis is best interest of the child. That means what is best for your son. Now, I find it hard to believe a judge will look at the father in a favorable light because he abandoned your son, but he is still the father and has some (and in your case very limited) rights.

    I would also suggest you file a petition for child support and make sure you receive economic compensation to help raise your son.

    Daniel’s Answer

    Defamation is a false statement of fact. As long as you are writing things that are true, you cannot be sued. Ironically enough, if the agency then posts false information about you, you can sue them for defamation.

  • Does the government monitor the public's internet activity?

    I am not asking if the government can monitor a specific person they classify as "suspicious", but rather the general public's. Can they and do they?

    It depends on where the content is located. They can obtain a warrant but if you put tweets for facebook posts into the public domain they are allowed to monitor them.

  • How do you file complaint against someone in workplace when their father is the president of the board of directors

    I am a volunteer member on an ambulance corps board. I feel I am being harassed by a person who is a Paid employee and a supervisor. I do not know what to do since his father is the president of the board of directors.

    Daniel’s Answer

    You should still file a complaint to a supervisor because it is important to document your actions in trying to protect your rights. If they discriminate against you based on your complaint, you may have a cause of action against them.
