Your son can file a motion to modify child support, but until that hearing is held, which could be many months, he is still obligated to pay the 600. Going back to school may not be an option for him unless he would be getting some sort of unemployment at the same time.
Unfortunately, his living expenses are not factored into the equation. Your son should file the modification immediately, for any change would only be retroactive to when he actually files with the court. He can call me if...
I actually disagree with the prior two answers. Under Maryland law, if there is no custody order, either of you have the right to have the child with you at all times. There is nothing the other parent can do to take the child back if the child were with you. That being said, I am not advocating each of you grabbing the child from each other when the other is not looking. You need to file custody papers asap, but she cannot stop you from taking the child with you in the meantime if you can...
did you file a request for an order of default? If so, this is an uncontested masters hearing, although the father may be allowed to present evidence if he shows up...you want to make sure you bring a witness with you.
The amount of suit is just a numbe chosen by the Plaintiff's attorney, so I would not think much about it other than the fact that you are being sued for over your policy limit. That being said, with $5,000.00 in damages it does not sound like a case that will get anywhere near your policy limit.
You need to immediately turn the suit papers over to your insurance company so that they may assign an attorney to defend you. It will most likely be from their staff counsel office. They will be...
Your boyfriend being prosecuted has nothing to do with whether or not he knew your real age, it is a strict liability crime, if it happened he can be found guilty. The state can prosecute him whether or not you want him to be prosecuted. He should consult with an attorney asap.
The court will be bound by the best interest of the child standard and I think most judges believe children should receive there immunizations as required by the State.
You need to petition the court for legal and physical custody as soon as possilbe.
Has an attorney or the public defender's office entered an appearance on your behalf in the case. if so, then the arraignment gets cancelled and you will receive a trial date.
The trial is the time to prove that you are not guilty, not the arraignment. If you do not have counsel you should hire an attorney or apply for a public defender asap.
To take it even a step further, the Maryland appellate courts have ruled that a workers compensation award, other than an award for back earnings, is not marital property and not to be divided in a divorce case. If you want to read the case at a law library or try to find it on-line it is Queen v. Queen.
You are charged with two offenses that carry jail time as a possible punishment: possession of a controlled dangerous substance and driving on a suspended license.
With regard to the license, find out why you are suspended and get it correct immediately so you can go into Court with a valid driving privilege.
Prior to Court you should get yourself evaluated by an addictions counselor and follow whatever they tell you to do as far as a drug education or treatment program and get as much of it...
If you were found not guilty, received a nolle prosse (dismissal), a pbj, or the case was placed on the stet docket, you should be able to apply for expungement using the court form and paying a $30.00 fee. The stet, pbj or nolle pross require a three year wait.
if you were convicted then you can only expunge with a pardon from the governor.
if you email me with more specific info I can let you know what is possible.
