    I agree that you should have an attorney if you intend to challenge the present parenting arrangement. If you ex will agree to a change that is reasonable for the child, you may be able to avoid having to hire local counsel.

    You have rights if the agreement between your employer and you says you do, or if you are being disciplined for a reason that is recognized in the law as an improper reason. For instance, you may have rights under an agreement such as union contract or employment agreement or (rarely) an employee handbook.

    I take it that your friend did not pay or give you anything to store the tractor, and that it is not your tractor. If that is the case, you may not be bound to your promise to the friend.

Practically, you should give notice to the friend and the purchaser of your move and give them a reasonable deadline to work this out. You can only sell if it is abandoned, and your case for abandonment...

    You have a deal, and the deal determines who is right here. If the written contract said he gets to lock you out, that is the deal you bought. If there is no written deal, your rights depend upon what is represented by the seller, reasonably implied or what is customary for such transactions.

So: it looks as if you can get a passport if you are otherwise eligible, but it may reveal your current whereabouts.
