    Well, there are two things that you need to do. First, you should get an affidavit signed by your child giving informed consent to allow you to make all of their education decisions. If your child lacks the capacity to give informed consent, which is likely with a child with Downs Syndrome, then you should get an affidavit from your child's physician indicating that in their professional opinion, your child lacks the capacity to give informed consent and that it would be in the best interest of...

    This agreement is certainly worth fighting. I recommend getting a lawyer to review the agreement itself. All restrictions on child support/custody will not be valid. The court must make those decisions "in the best interests of the child." The threat that you felt prior to the wedding may also help invalidate the prenuptial agreement altogether. Again, you should seek counsel to ensure you and your child will be adequately protected.

    Based on the information that you have provided, it is unlikely that you will go to jail. As a first time offender who cooperated, the prosecutor will likely just seek probation of some kind. I cannot say that you will definitely not go to jail, however. You should seek an attorney to represent you, despite the small amount of merchandise shoplifted.

    You can certainly file the case and represent yourself in this situation, but I highly recommend seeking an attorney. For further advice or guidance you can try calling the Council for Children's Rights in Charlotte, NC.

    Well, there are a few prerequisites to getting the limited driving privilege. If you choose not to pursue the limited driving privilege, you won't have to jump through the hoops to get it done, and you may also save on auto insurance if you don't drive.
