  • Can a 15 year old child legally leave home and move in with a relative

    My grandson wants to live with his grandparents (me)

    Maury’s Answer

    No. A child can never make that decision until they reach the age of 18.

  • Appeal

    Almost a year ago i was arrested for arson. I have a mental evaluation done to determinate whether i was competent at the time of the crime. Once the report was released it didn't find anything to support my claim. But medical records from private...

    Maury’s Answer

    If you entered a plea, it would be very difficult to challenge that plea since you were certainly aware or had access to your private psychologists records and views at that time. The action to bring is one for post conviction relief, but it would be very difficult without more.

  • How can we get custody of two children who live with an addict?

    My fiance and I want to get custody of his children. Their mom is an addict - pills and alcohol - and is unstable. We don't have anything to prove it other than incoherent texts and once we had to call the police but she refused the breathalyzer. ...

    Maury’s Answer

    Thank you for the inquiry. Your case would have to be reviewed to determine when the last custody order was entered and the terms of that order. Additionally we would have to discuss the evidence in the case that would lead a court to believe the children are in danger. You must consult with an experienced attorney.

  • Does a police officer have to check your insurance to make sure it's valid if they are going to write a ticket?

    I was pulled over. The officer took my license as I was getting my insurance. The officer came back and gave me the ticket, but stated they did not have time for me to get my insurance. I am wondering if this is something that happens a lot, or if...

    Maury’s Answer

    They are not required to check your insurance, though it is standard practice. You do not defeat a citation on a technicality unless the ticket is one for not having insurance and you have it.

    Maury’s Answer

    Your order would have to be reviewed. However, you cannot simply cut ties altogether. You must allow any supervised visits that are reasonable based on the language of your order or seek to modify the order. That may mean filing a motion to suspend parenting time pending some remedial efforts by the other parent to repair his or her relationship.

    Maury’s Answer

    A theft conviction can have long lasting implications. As a result, you should retain an experienced lawyer. Often, even where defenses are weak, you may be able to avoid a conviction with a Stay of Prosecution. Many lawyers offer free consultations to discuss with you your defenses and options.

    Maury’s Answer

    Representing yourself as an attorney could be a criminal matter for practicing law without a license. It can be reported to police.

    Maury’s Answer

    No one call tell you whether or not you have defenses without a full review of the case and its details as well as the evidence. If you do not have a lawyer, you should retain one.

    You certainly may wish to discuss this case with a lawyer. You may be considered for placement and the interests of your children could be addressed with a change of custody.
