    Miranda warnings are not necessary unless the defendant is in custody and not free to go and statements made by the defendant made be used in court. People watch too much television and seen to think Miranda warnings are always required.

    If either or both parties are unwilling to compromise, there really is no option but to go to trial and let the judge decide the outcome. If the judge has already make recommendations, then it is likely the outcome will be similar unless evidence is presented which changes the judge's mind. You and your lawyer need to prepare for trial

    You need to file a police report and make a claim with your insurance carrier. The lady who hit you might be really nice but that will not get you the relief you need.

As for maintenance (alimony,) it is very unlikely she will be entitled to any at all if she is and has been for a long time, living with another man. This question is best answered in detail by your divorce lawyer who has all the details of your case. Since you have posted it...

    The action of the police officer was not tyrannical. He was doing his job. A police officer cannot pick and choose which legitimate citations to write. Look at it from the other side - What if your neighbor changed her mind and decided to sue you. Then she would have a good complaint against the officer and the deprartment if the officer refuse to write the ticket.

    You weill not go to jail. If you cannot get an emergency order tonight, call the police and tell them you are afraid and you will not return your child tonight. Then go straight to the courthouse tomorrow and get an Order of Protection. If you have a lawyer, call your lawyer immediately,. If you do not have a lawyer, hire one as soon as possible.

    Seriously? Why on earth would you want to have a case reopened when it was dismissed? You are taking a huge risk, even if you could reopen the case, which is not likely. As for the outcome, there is no way of knowing. Get over it and move on. Your attorney got you a great deal.
