Yes, you are the sole owner of the account and it should not be considered as any part of your father's estate. However, if there are other assets in your Dad's name alone, then you'll need to Probate his estate and use an Estate lawyer in most instances.
My condolences on the loss of your father.
No, none that I am aware of at the present time. The sentencing structure was changed and all upstate sentences were effectively increased by adding the post release supervision, previously called Parole.
I am not going to review others' specific advice and comment upon it. Sorry. This site is for generalized non-binding advice.
If what you are asking is how to advise someone that your visitation has been denied, then simply say that in common language as a layman. Courts know how to read and simply do your best without trying to be a lawyer. I haven't reviewed the items mentioned due to time constraints, but just make it simple and direct. That sets up the basis for a later Contempt of...
Yes, but be very sure the 17 year old is telling the truth about their age, because if they aren't yet 17, then you can be charged with a felony for statutory rape - even if they lied to you about their age.
He's incorrect. You paid for the credit check and therefore no money was paid for you for a down payment. Without consideration (meaning money or a promise of payment of some sort) there is no contract that is enforceable.
If you think they will try to sue you, then you need a real estate lawyer. Otherwise, the deal is dead.
An ACD means Adjournment in Contemplation of Dismissal and it is an administrative means of putting the case over for six months or a year to see if you remain law abiding. As long as you do, then the Dismissal will automatically be granted without your further appearance in court and, by law, the record of your case will be expunged which means it will not be there any longer.
At least that's the technical explanation of it. However, in my 35 years of experience the arrest record will...
First, its best not to put factual information on the internet where anyone can access it.
Second, yes, the court can be lenient and sometimes the DA will be lenient, especially when all you want to do is join the armed services in order to do bodily harm to enemies of our country. However, in order to prove that, you may have to interface with your recruiter and the DA and have them come to terms together and then maybe there's a chance of getting a break.
Speak to a good attorney and...
I agree with the first answer given. However, your agreement may have read that HE was supposed to support her until she turned 21. Now, if she moves in with him, you may well be cast into the same position as he was before. You know what they say about he Goose and the Gander. Most spuses forget that simple adage when demanding child support until age 21 for their children and then it can get turned around on them later.
Usually, plea agreements are held solely between the prosecutor and defense counsel, unless there are conditions within the agreement that must be divulged to the Judge in open court. In that situation, he can ask his attorney to seal or close the courtroom if he could be endangered by having certain aspects of the agreement discussed in public. However, most of the time, this is not even an issue. I agree with the rest of what's already been written by my predecessors on this question....
The greatest likelihood is that the DA's office will notice that you've already had one ACD and not grant you a second one for the same crime. That means that both cases can come back at you at the same time, which makes things much worse for you. I suggest you hire an experienced lawyer who works in Manhattan and see what they can do for you. Every once in a while, something like this can slide by the DA's office without notice, but that's a long shot at this point. If it does slide...
