    This is more-than-likely a misdemeanor offense. If this was a Metrolink ticket, then it will not have any substantial impact on your ability to secure employment. It is always best to contact an attorney but if you need additional time to talk to (or hire) an attorney, make sure you appear in court and explain that to the judge.

    This really depends on what your charges were. An SIS is a non-conviction, so if you successfully completed your probation you should look into whether a non-conviction of your charges will prevent you from getting the job(s) you are looking for.

    The Court always rules based on the child's best interests. There has to be a substantial change in circumstances suggesting that a modification of the visitation/custody order would be in the child's best interests.

    If the non-custodial parent is not paying court ordered child support this matter can and likely will be addressed by the State via criminal proceedings. Non-payment of support is a criminal matter and the state will do everything possible to ensure that the current support and arrears are being paid. Child support is actually still enforceable if the children enroll in college full time after high school regardless of their age. I would contact FSD to discuss these concerns.

    Most likely but every situation is different. You could still owe child support if the child enrolls in college full time after high school graduation regardless of their age.

    The state has unfortunately decided to step in and take control of the situation. Even though the mother does not want the state to prosecute, it is ultimately up to the State whether they prosecute you for criminal non-support. You should have the mother contact the prosecuting attorney and the Family Support Division office and inform them that she would like to waive a specific amount of the back support owed. You should contact an attorney as soon as possible to discuss this matter in detail.

    Your son's mother can contact the Missouri Family Support Division and/or the prosecuting attorney for your case and inform them that she would like to waive a specific amount (or all) of the amounts owed in back support. You should obviously contact a criminal defense attorney to discuss details of your situation.

    You obviously need to contact a Missouri criminal defense attorney as soon as possible. You should ask your attorney what to expect because it depends on a number of circumstances. For example - your criminal record/background will have an impact on what you can expect as far as results are concerned.

    Unless there is a custody determination or a specific, legal reason/purpose for her not allowing you to see your children - I would recommend to call the police and see if they can help.

    What you can expect heavily depends on whether you are in circuit or municipal court and what your criminal background/record is like. You should contact a Missouri Criminal Defense Attorney to discuss the details of your case.
