    Frankly, it's a bad idea to bring a 3-month-old to court with you under any circumstances. I've been present when judges have ordered infants and small children out of courtrooms. Please, please make other arrangements if you can. The only time to bring children to any legal events is if their presence is required to be there. Should you bring a child to court and you are taken into custody, if you haven't brought someone else with you it's very possible that the child will wind up having a...

    At the present time, most courts consider cheating to be cheating regardless of the gender of your spouse's partner. As long as sexual activity took place, it's considered to be adultery.

    Hire an attorney now. While I agree with the first contributor I would also add that the sooner you have counsel, the sooner you will understand the case much better. The earlier you fully understand the charges and any possible outcomes, the earlier you can make educated decisions about the best way to handle your case. Even if charges are not likely to be dropped, you may be eligible for alternative sentencing, reduced charges, or diversionary programs that you may not know about without...

  4. If father doesn't pay court ordered child support..will i get it from the state?

    Child support does have to be provided by the parent, not by the state. The state can press contempt charges, but unless he pays up because of the charges or because he is found in contempt, you will not receive any money.

    It may not be a HIPAA violation, but it is certainly an invasion of your family's privacy, especially as there are many reasons a family may choose not to vaccinate. Care providers are expected to maintain confidentiality of children's and their families' medical, financial, and related information. You may have a cause of action along these lines. Please consult a local attorney about this.

    Your attorney should be able to file a motion to have the judge order the prison to dispense your proper medications. Your attorney will have to contact your doctors first in order to prepare it.

    Since you have only been in Florida for 3 months this is still a New York case. You should be able to find a qualified attorney to ask in Florida by searching right here on Avvo. If you check their profiles, they will indicate if they do family law and if they also handle New York law.

    Adult adoptions are perfectly legal. However, there would need to be a hearing on this. Adoption law is not something you should attempt to guess at -- do use an attorney.

    Yes. Unless a biological parent's rights have been terminated by a court, they are still a legal parent who can file for custodial rights. The fact that they can file, however, doesn't mean that they will win. A parent who has never been involved in a child's life when they could have been had they chosen to do so is a parent not likely to win custody. However, that parent may still be entitled to visitation that may increase over time.

  10. I have a summons/Ticket waiting for trial Virginia code 18.2-160.1 & traveling to Canada prior to said trial. Is this a problem?

    No, this will not prevent entry into Canada. You have not been convicted of this, so it is not on a criminal record of any sort, and even merely having a criminal record will not automatically keep you from being allowed to enter Canada. Further, you will not be examined within an inch of your life at the Canadian border; crossing international lines at the Canadian border is a relatively informal affair (usually done at a drive-up checkpoint if you are going by car, where you present ID)....
