The age of consent in Indiana is 16 provided that the older party is not in a position of authority, coach, teacher, care giver etc. Furthermore, if he has been in trouble before, it is important to check to see if there are any specific terms of any plea bargain or sentence that may be violated by the relationship. Last but not least, if the current relationship started when the youngest party was under 16 years of age, charges could still be filed. Your boyfriend needs to immediately seek...
In the absence of a valid prenuptial agreement, there will be a rebuttable presumption that both husband and wife are entitled to one half of the equity in the home. This presumption is difficult to overcome. One way a judge might deem the house to not be a marital asset is if he was convinced that the home was a gift, the couple was only married for very short period of time and that the wife did not contribute any sweat equity to the home. In Indiana, this would be a difficult burden.
While $300 does not seem like a lot of money, the issue is obviously very important to the parties. In general, no one can cash another person's pension or social security payment after the person is deceased. You sound remorseful and sound like you paid restitution. Consequently, criminal prosecution is unlikely; however, still possible.
If civil suit has already been filed, seek the services of an attorney immediately. Representation will allow you to speak through a representative...
You have many options. However, this is the type of case you need to immediately consult with an attorney in the Ft Wayne area about. You need to discuss your goals: remedy the property, cancel, the lease, compensation for adverse health effects or emotional distress etc.
Once mold is found to be present, remedition is usually very costly. Nevertheless, it is necessary that the landlord take steps to remedy the problem before there are serious health issues.
It depends on several factors. In Indiana, a contract occurs when there is an offer, an acceptance and mutual consideration. We also have a statute of frauds which requires contracts involving more than a certain dollar amount to be in writing. However, even in the absence of a written contract, one may still be liable based upon quantum merrit or other equitable doctrines of law. (Such as reasonable reliance upon an oral promise or representation.) I suggest that you immediately contact an...
Emancipation is controlled by Indiana statute.
Emancipation of child; findings; terms
Sec. 6. (a) The juvenile court may emancipate a child under section 1(5) of this chapter if the court finds that the child:
(1) wishes to be free from parental control and protection and no longer needs that control and protection;
(2) has sufficient money for the child's own support;
(3) understands the consequences of being free from parental control and protection; and
(4) has an...
In the absence of a protective order or an order terminating visitation rights, your ex husband still has a right to reasonable visitation with your daughter. If he chooses to exercise that right, you may need to seek court guidance for supervised visits or an order requiring some type of family counseling to assure that visits are safe. Children generally do better when they have a relationship with both parents. However, safety during visitation must be given a premium.
Unfortunately, the tenant has a right to film the common areas from within his apartment as long as it is for a legitimate reason and not a nuisance. No prosecutor would likely consider this to be an unlawful invasion of privacy. Furthermore, convincing a judge in a civil suit that this is an actionable nuisance would be extremely unlikely.
Your best bet is to leave this man alone. If you don't like his surveilance of common areas, then talk to your landlord about alternative living...
You need to hire a local lawyer and immediately schedule a hearing on whether she may take the child from your local. The distance involved will be a factor. The change in school districts is another factor. If it will hinder visitation with you and his siblings, this will also be a factor. Ultimately, the judge will decide who should have physical custody of your son in the event the joint custody agreement is no longer feasible.
The divorce decree and property settlement agreement controlls who gets the deduction. As a practical matter, if a noncustodial parent claims the child as a deduction and so does the custodial parent, an audit is likely to ensue. In todays age of electronic filings, two tax payers claiming the same child as a deduction is typically caught because the social security number of the child appears on the return.
If you the custodial parent does not claim the child as a deduction, the absence...
