    Adam’s Answer

    Your question does not give enough information to answer this. However, if you are concerned about what is happening, I would recommend continuing to try to contact the attorney. He or she may be able to provide a satisfactory explanation for their behavior.

  • How can a 16 year old girl's mother file a police report against a 17 year old boy if it was consential in Indiana?

    She just recently filed it and now we don't know how this is even a case when there was no rape and the ages were of consent...just don't understand....PLEASE HELP

    Adam’s Answer

    Filing a police report does not mean that anything will be pursued. However, you do not know what the specific complaint was. The best choice would be to talk to an experience criminal defense lawyer NOW so that you will be prepared if and when the police come asking questions.

  • My ex wife pays child support and is getting married to a DR. will she be required to pay more in child support.

    he husband is the one that takes care of her and the bills. And she even works for him.

    Adam’s Answer

    This question is far too complicated and fact sensitive for a quick answer. There are circumstances in which her child support could increase, but there isn't enough information here to make a call. You should seek a local attorney experience in child support matters who has a thorough understanding of the Indiana Child Support Guidelines.

  • Paid $100 to an atty that was supposedly representing Walmart in an employee shoplifting incident, why do I have a warrant now?

    Due to employee shoplifting incident.

    Adam’s Answer

    Wal-Mart has a policy of making a civil demand when they have been shoplifted, often for $100. This is simply a way for Wal-Mart to make extra money. It does not mean that you will not be prosecuted. In your case, it appears that you are being prosecuted criminally for the theft/conversion allegation. Unfortunately, your payment of the civil demand will not stop the prosecutor from being able to pursue your case. Good luck.

  • Is a text stating what you agree to in a divorce negotiation binding?

    My spouse & i went negotiating back and forth using text messages. Is that enforceable as a final agreement by a court? Nothing is signed.

    Adam’s Answer

    That is very unlikely to be considered binding in my experience. A signed (written) agreement that is filed with the court is usually necessary for it to be fully enforceable.

    You have not provided enough information for an accurate answer to be given. I recommend you contact a local family law attorney with experience in adoption and custody matters.

    Adam’s Answer

    You can petition the court for a formal child support order, but the general rule is that it will only be retroactive to the date you file your request. Whether you are successful on your request will depend on a number of factors too numerous to list here, but primarily the income of the parties.

  • Can alimony be increased five years after a divorce?

    My ex-husband has a new job, and his making substantially more than when were married. I'm wondering if I can ask for alimony to be increased after the fact?

    Adam’s Answer

    Indiana does not have alimony, so you would not be eligible if your case filed in Indiana. If it was filed elsewhere, it would depend on the laws of that state.

  • How do I get a Brady disqualifier taken off a restraining order?

    I have a Restraining order against me and I am trying to get back into law enforcement and what's holding me back is the Brady disqualifier.

    Adam’s Answer

    I assume you are referring to a civil protective order. If you choose not to hire an attorney to represent you in the matter, you can write a letter to the court and ask the judge to modify the protective order. Explain your reasons. File the letter in the court that issued the order.

    The judge will either grant your request, deny it, or schedule it for a hearing so that both sides can be heard before a decision is made. Good luck.

    Adam’s Answer

    In my experience, it is unlikely that you will be able to find a new attorney to accept the case under those circumstances. However, if you feel that you cannot work with your attorney any more, you should advise your attorney how you feel. Your attorney may decide to request a continuance so that you can find new counsel.

    As a practical matter, many problems like this can be solved through open communication with your attorney. Tell your lawyer how you feel, and you might be able to resolve your issues. Good luck.
