    Absolutely, as my colleagues have said, your lawyer can negotiate a deal throughout the process. However, keep in mind depending on the county there are certain stages of the process were you will get your best deal. For example, at the formal arraignment.

    Rely on the advice of your attorney, that's what they are there for. Keep in mind, with almost all custody situations, the standard is the Best Interest of the Child. As I'm sure you are aware, legal custody encompasses those decisions you make for your child, such as medical decisions, schools decisions ect. The court typically will find it to be in the best interest of the child when both parents have a say in such important life decisions.

    My colleague is correct. Support and Custody are separate issues. As for custody, the standard in Pennsylvania, when determining custody, is what is in the best interest of the child. Most courts will find that having both parents involved in the child's life is the best interest of the child. This might make it difficult to go about moving to another state without your child's fathers consent, especially if he has partial legal or physical custody. You should definitely contact a lawyer.

    Have your boyfriend contact an attorney. There is a lot that goes into sentencing besides just what your boyfriend's prior record score is. There are tons of variables that go into sentencing which include but aren't limited to offense gravity scores of the crimes he's charged, mandatory sentences, how the sentencing matrix works, whether or not charges are run concurrent. All of these are things a criminal attorney can help you understand and explain to you.

    This seems likes a child custody question to me. The courts look at the best interest of the child when determining the custody of a minor child. However, at 15, they will factor in your preference along with the other factors that you have listed. If your dad is trying to get custody of you, he should file a petition or hire a lawyer to do so.

    It will be up to the state whether or not to go ahead with charges against you. If they do, I suggest you contact an attorney.

    Paternity will likely have to be established. However, there seems to be many complicated issues going on here. I think its best if you contact a lawyer who can help explain all these issues to you.

    Where in New Jersey? Most counties do have legal aid services available and you can contact them by calling the counties bar association.
