    Any state is going to have concerns about rescinding a no-contact order, so you'll almost certainly need a hearing. If the order was originally issued because of domestic violence, a judge will want to be very sure that lifting the order will not result in further violence occurring, because that is a very common situation, unpleasant as it may be to think about. Many women who believe that it could not possibly happen again have been wrong. I don't know the exact situation under which this...

    The other posters are quite correct. It's unfortunate that you are in a situation in which you can't pay even though you're in a funded program; many people are in the same situation. You don't list the size of the debt, but if the size of the debt is larger than the amount it would cost to collect it, this well may go into collection. (On the other hand, I've had a client whose old phone bill debt of over $700.00 has just had an offer from the collection agency to settle the entire matter...

    For most crimes, a person does not need to be arrested in order to be charged. Whether there is any merit to the charge is another question; however, it is a common practice to charge someone who is believed to have committed a crime without making an arrest. An arrest is only made if it is believed by the police officer that it is necessary to take the person into custody for some reason. If the charge is simple possession (without intent to deliver) a citation might be issued at the time...

    Can she? It's possible, but there's much more to know in order to determine what would actually happen here. If this was the marital residence, it does not matter if yours is the only name on the deed. If you don't have an attorney, see one immediately. Motions for exclusive use are serious matters.

    The general rule for child support is that it is paid until your child turns 18 or graduates from high school. If you are currently paying child support for your son, you can be expected to do so until he graduates. If there is not a child support order at this time, it is unlikely that one will be requested at this point. You do not owe any child support for your grandchild when your grandchild is born.

    Actually, police can ask questions regarding medical issues (presuming something has given them a reason to ask) -- it's your right however to refuse to answer them. Illegal searches or unnecessary force are a different question, however, and ones that would need more information than given here.

    It depends upon your county. You'll need to do two things: file a stepparent adoption, and file for the termination of parental rights, which may be voluntary or involuntary. If the other parent is alive, their parental rights must be terminated so that a stepparent adoption can take place. All the forms you need may be on line in your county, or they may not. Check the county website. A voluntary termination, with agreement, will be much easier than involuntary. If you do not know where...

    Could you get in trouble? You can always be in trouble. Most states, and this includes TN, are employment at will states -- you can be fired at the discretion of the employer if there is no specific law preventing firing for that particular reason. Will you actually be charged with a crime as well? Probably not. It would be difficult to prove that your comment was intended to be a sexual come-on, or that you knew the girl was under the age of consent.

    Any offender on parole has certain terms of parole he has to meet. When the person is a sex offender, there are often prohibitions on being in the same place as minors -- and that can include their own minor children. Unfortunately as you haven't specified his terms of probation (you may not know all of them yourself), it's difficult to answer this satisfactorily.

    Adoption isn't the least expensive process, although it can be straightforward if the proper forms are filled out. Some attorneys in York will make payment arrangements on adoptions. A custody stipulation might be cheaper and is not difficult. The difference is that in adoption, you become the parents and your cousin would no longer be the legal parent of the children; if your cousin died, the children would not inherit. In custody, your cousin would still be the parent but you would have...
