    It sounds a little strange to me. It is easy enough to scan and email a document to an opposing party. You may want to consider hiring an attorney just to review the settlement agreement before you sign it to ensure nothing has been added or is included that could be detrimental to you. Most attorney's will charge an hourly fee to review the agreement which shouldn't be more than a few hundred dollars.

    You need to hire an experienced criminal defense attorney immediately. Your attorney may be able to meet with the prosecutor before the case is actually accused and show them the document in an effort to keep you from being formally charged. If the case is dismissed prior to accusation, it is much easier to have the arrest removed from your record. I would call an attorney today!

  3. Should we pay restitution? Can a criminal charge be filed if we choose not to pay?

    The civil penalty is a common scare tactic that law firms use to try to get people to pay them. Similar letters are sent to shoplifters after they are arrested. I have not had one single client ever face any criminal or civil action based on his or her failure to pay. The law firm is banking on the fact that you will get scared and send them money. The issue of restitution could be a criminal matter if Kroger decides to get the police involved. However, failure to pay based on the...

    You would need to file a petition for modification and seek sole legal and physical custody. If the DUIs effect his ability to drive or endangered the child in any way, those would greatly increase your chances of winning sole custody. The comments that he makes about you and to you could be used to show that he does not behave in the best interest of the child and is attempting to alienate you from the child. Your best chance of winning is to hire an attorney who can best present your...

    The case will likely be placed on a non-jury calendar in the coming weeks/months, depending on the Court's calendar. There is no default judgment in family matters like there are in civil matters. I would suggest speaking with an attorney who can prepare you for the final hearing and ensure that all paperwork has been filed appropriately. You can also call the judge's staff to request a hearing date be set.

    If your new wife would like to file a step-parent adoption, the motion to terminate parental rights would be filed as part of the adoption proceeding. The issues the court will consider when determining whether to grant the adoption are: payment of child support, abandonment of the child (contact, whether in person, by telephone, by letter, etc) and any other issues that would negatively affect the mother's parenting abilities (ie, drug abuse, etc). Non-payment of child support is a technical...

    Yes, you can relocate with your children so long is there is no court order prohibiting you from removing the children from the jurisdiction of the court. If the father has not filed a petition for legitimation, he has no legal rights to the children .

  8. My 28 year old unmarried daughter, a second year nursing student is pregnant. Is the Dad responsible for prenatal care?

    If your daughter files to establish paternity after the child is born, she can seek reimbursement for birth expenses related to the pregnancy. Child support would also be determined in the paternity action. I would suggest that she retain an attorney to assist her with any action regarding child support and paternity as the forms can be quite confusing and she will want an attorney to ensure that the appropriate amount of child support is awarded based on the father's actual income.

    I assume that you have been to court and entered a plea to the charge since you indicate that you are on probation. If you have completed all of the terms of your sentence, you could file a motion for early termination of probation based upon your re-enlistment. I would suggest that you speak with an attorney and consider retaining one to assist you with filing. If you want to handle it yourself, be sure to attach a letter from the marine corps stating the requirements for re-enlistment and...

    I would recommend selecting your DUI attorney ASAP and letting that person draft it for you. There should not be an additional charge from the attorney for preparing the 10-day letter. There are statutory things you want to include that would be difficult to you to draft on your own. The appeal fee must be submitted with the letter as well, which is required whether you submit it on your own or have your attorney prepare it. Most DUI attorneys will offer a free consultation and walk you...
