    You have multiple issues that are far too complex for this simple forum. Consult with one or more family law attorneys an hire the one you like the best. In the meantime, you might also wish to speak with a consumer debt attorney to handle any potential liability based upon the fraudulent cards. Handing off that job to a lawyer would greatly reduce your stress. The criminal matter will be handled by the state or the feds but you deserve as much protection as possible. Best wishes to you.

    First of all, you need to stop posting any messages online or discussing your case publicly or even privately with relatives or friends This is not a private forum. You also need to arrange for a lawyer who practices in the county where your case is pending to that you can return and take care of the outstanding warrant. The longer you wait, the more difficult it could become for you. Consult with several and hire the experienced criminal defense attorney you like the best.

    Generally, procedural decisions are made by the attorney. You should talk this over with your attorney if you have concerns but there may have been a reason why the subpoenas were necessary. We have no way of knowing for certain in this online forum but nothing you describe here is illegal.

  4. Is my house considered a martial property or my property?

    The house was purchased in anticipation of marriage and would probably be considered marital. However, your lawyer will argue that you should receive a large proportion (if not all) of the equity if all the contribution was yours. You need a lawyer if you are contemplating divorce. If you are not, then the characterization of the home as marital or non-marital is not really relevant as this only comes up in the context of divorce or separation.

    I agree this is a very weird question. We get some weird inquiries from time to time. If the "urinator" can be identified, the person who posted could be in trouble. This is a perfect example of the stupidity and danger of Twitter and Facebook. What possible good could come of posting such stuff?

    The only way you can find out is to ask the attonrey who may or may not know those statistics. An attorney's record is not like an athlete's statistics. It is not published anywhere. Reputation and skill, plus compatibility with the client, not cold numbers, are what you should be considering when seeking to hire a lawyer.

    This sounds very scary. Someone needs to report this activity to the police. Whether it is legal for an 18-year-old boy to spend time with a 12-year-old girl depends upon the activity. However, your sister needs to have her online activity Monitored, and an adult should notify the police of this potential problem. There is no way of knowing who or what is really at the other end of your sister's computer without an investigation. Do not delay!

    First of all, you must stop making any further admissions or discussing your conduct online or with anyone, even in private, with anyone but a lawyer. If you legitimately needed to fill your scrip early, you should have contacted your doctor but what you did is a federal offense. and whether you are reported will depend upon a number of factors which should not be discussed here. Please consult in private with an attorney. The attorney may have some good suggestions for you.
