    Surprisingly, although a store parking lot is in theory private property, the police do have a right to enforce traffic laws there. It's not the same as operating farm equipment or farm vehicles on your own property (in many states even minors can operate farm vehicles without licenses on family property). If you have an accident in a parking lot, the police can issue a citation for that. They can, and do, also enforce driving laws. Although the property is privately owned, it is an area...

    As you know what she's doing, I gather you may also have an address for her. You can do international registered mail, which would return a card to you that would tell you that she received it, and this is effective for service in most states. Alternatively if you wish to spend the money, she can be served in person by someone in Colombia. If you use a lawyer for your divorce, the lawyer will find the person to do this and arrange for service of the papers. The service in Colombia must meet...

    You do need to have a lawyer review your letter and any other paperwork you have in order to determine just what sort of court date you have. I do not know if Washington has a three strikes rule, but you would do well to try to avoid having any more charges against you. It is worth losing supposed friends to keep yourself out of serious trouble. Supposed friendships are not worth the possibility of serious fines or jail time, and people who ask you to commit crimes are not your friends.

    Child support does not extend to college tuition unless the parents agree to it (in writing, or you'll never prove it) while the children are still minors. Without an existing contract for it, he has no duty to pay tuition. I advise you to have your college-bound children fill out their financial aid forms instead of your filling out a petition for child support.

    New Jersey law spells out the criteria for a civil union to be recognized by the state. Merely buying property together or/and cohabiting should not be sufficient to create this status. You should be able to find the information for civil union formation in your state on line; I believe in New Jersey you have to file for one just as you would file for a marriage license, as a civil union is intended to create a status similar to marriage. You can also call the county for information just as...

    This absolutely will be under Indiana law and you should speak to a lawyer licensed to practice in Indiana. What you don't address is the reason that your parole officer wants your parole extended. There must be a reason, and that reason must be valid, in order for the parole to be extended. You may wish to provide additional information about that.

    When you say "given up from birth," if you mean formally adopted, the grandchild does not have a right to inherit. Adoption severs the connection between a child and the birth family, including inheritance rights, and vests them in the adoptive family. You may know who and where the child is, but they have no inheritance rights and would have to be named specifically in a birth family's wills in order for them or their heirs to inherit. This grandchild was not a possible heir based upon what...

    The thing that makes a contract both legal and enforceable is not notarization but that the contract contains the correct elements (technically offer, acceptance, and consideration, all terms that have specific legal meanings here). The document needs to be reviewed by a lawyer in order to determine if it is valid and if it is enforceable (some contracts that contain all the correct elements may still not be enforceable for certain reasons). It wouldn't matter if the contract is typed or...

    In most states, you can only have someone charged with malicious prosecution (false claims against you) once you have proven that the claims against you are in fact false. It becomes a second legal action that can only take place after the first matter has been cleared in your favor. There are also civil actions that can be filed, but you still need to have the matter resolved in your favor first. This seems to be an ongoing matter. Further, as she is now out of state, bringing her back...

    You really haven't stated a question that a reader can follow. If I'm correct, you (or another) have been found guilty of shoplifting and fined by the court, but you want the case expunged because of your immigration standing. You don't state the grade or classification of the shoplifting charge but it's true that someone who is in the United States on a visa or a green card can be deported if they are found guilty of certain crimes. Obviously, that would be a reason that you would want an...
