I have been asked by the Nursing Home to get guardianship of my sister. What would my responsibilities be? Would I be responsible for anything other than her health issues? She is on Medicaid, would I be responsible for any of her medical expens...
No, you won't be responsible for her bills just because you have guardianship of her. You should consult with a local attorney.

There is no father on the birth certificate.
Sorry to hear about your sister. Unfortunately, she can't really do anything without going through the court. The thing that makes the most sense is a guardianship. If the father is not known, you would have to serve the putative father registry, and publish notice in the local paper. Short of that, she could draft a power of attorney, specifically stating that you have the authority to act in place of the child's parents. That's not full-proof, but it's better than nothing. She should also consider doing a quick will, naming you as guardian of her child. You should find an attorney in your area that offers a free consultation so you can discuss options.

she was charged with stealing and the judge gave the prosucuter 72 to come up with proof so i guess they couldnt so the charges were dropped and she was told that if they do charge her she would receive something in the mail. well she received a l...
Ignore the letter at your peril. Even if the charges were initially dropped, it likely was not without prejudice. Therefore, the state is free to refile the charges. This letter may be a summons require you to appear in court on initial charges. If you do not appear, likely a warrant for arrest will be issued.
TAZER not firearm
Not sure what the sentence for that is, but you may have an insanity defense!See question
I was at a party that got busted, so i got charged with minor in possecion of alcohol. After giving us all breathalizer tests he told us to put our hands behind our backs and arrested us. Where they supposed to read us our miranda rights when they...
They don't have to read your rights to you. However, that subjects any statements, or any evidence derived therefrom, to suppression. In your case, probably no harm as you are not entitled to Miranda prior to being asked for identification, or given a pbt.

You can get guardianship of your great-nephew. Once you have guardianship of him for six months, you can petition for custody. Judges would be more comfortable giving you guardianship first, followed by custody later. You need to talk to a lawyer in your area. There should be some who offers a free consultation.

Time to come clean with your spouse. You need to file bankruptcy! Do not use home equity loan. You are just trading unsecured debt on credit card for debt secured by your home.
Arrange a free consultation with a bankruptcy lawyer so you can have facts and a path for resolution before talking to your spouse.

the plea is for 30-40 years
If a plea has been accepted by the court, and it has sentenced you accordingly, The answer is no (unless the plea allows for
modification, for example, shock-probation). However, since the plea requires 15 to 20 actual years at the DOC, fully executed, I will assume this is just a plea offer; especially considering inmates can't post to the Internet, Therefore, if it is just a plea offer, you are free to make a counter offer the prosecutor. If your counter offer is not accepted, then you have to decide between an open plea or trial.

I have never been in trouble with the law at all. I am a mom of 4 children that got caught up in very bad business practices by an employer. Would not pay customers back their refunds and would flight checks and cook the books to make it look bett...
Anything is possible. In situations like this where you seem to be somewhat of a victim yourself, your testimony could be critical in order for the state to get a conviction against your employer. I would make sure that the attorney you have hired is working on that angle.
