    Kyle’s Answer

    You need to immediately and privately consult with a family law lawyer who knows what they are talking about.

    Mental health records are not only discoverable, but problems can arise if a party raises HIPAA.

  • What should I do if my 17 year old son got an owi.

    My son will will be 18 years old in a couple of weeks. This is his first offense. Car was parked but police suspect he was driving he was in his girlfriend's car because she picked him up.

    Kyle’s Answer

    Your son needs a criminal defense attorney immediately. Many offer free initial consultations. Your son should not talk about his case with anyone who is not his attorney and he should not write anything online about it--what he says or posts can be used against him in court and this is the easiest way for him to ruin his case.

    OWI is serious--conviction can result in jail, fines, probation, drivers license suspension, job loss, car insurance premiums skyrocketing, professional licensure problems, and difficulties with procuring health insurance.

    Kyle’s Answer

    You should immediately and privately consult with a lawyer who practices in the area of divorce law. Do not post anything more about the situation online, and do not speak of it with anyone who is not your attorney--who you say or write can be used against you in court. You should immediately get the ball rolling with an attorney--delay can affect a judge's analysis of the best interest factors when child custody / parenting time are determined.

    If a 17 year old posts nude photos on a website online, it's stupid yes that's punishment enough, and someone finds it and threatens to post the photos at the minors place of work will the person go to jail? And will any legal action be taken agai...

    Kyle’s Answer

    If a 17 year old takes nude photographs of their self and sends it to someone else, they committed three serious crimes: manufacturing, possessing, and distributing child pornography. The 17 year old needs an attorney immediately to navigate the minefield of getting their content offline so as to protect their reputation while, at the same time, avoiding a criminal prosecution that can result in serious punishment. Your story is a variation of "revenge pornography". Get a lawyer and stop screwing around--you are playing with fire by not getting ahead of the problem.
