  • Is It legal for a 16 year old to be with a 18, almost 19 year old in the state of Colorado ?

    It is legal for a 16 year old to be with a 18 almost 19 year old in the state or Colorado. I called police station and they said yes but i want to be sure. please help

    Lisa’s Answer

    I think your question should probably be posted in the criminal law section, because what you are really asking is: is it against the law in CO for this minor to engage in intimate relations with this 18/19 year old. The answer will turn on the statute in CO.

  • Lady pulls up next to me saying I hit her car. Requested cash on the spot. Now she's pestering me for payment. What to do?

    I pull over, lady shows me her mirror is barely attached. Claims that I, from the next lane over, made contact with her mirror with my mirror. I didn't notice that but I suppose it's possible... She then points out a scratch on her quarter ...

    If your car came in to contact with her car, there should be some sort of evidence of scratching or paint on your car that matches her car. I recommend you turn it in to your insurance company and tell her to do the same. And I also agree with the other attorneys in this post.

    Sounds like you are talking about your trust, you can make these changes to your trust, you shouldn't worry about what others are going to think or feel. I recommend you speak to your attorney who drafted this trust.

  • How do I get an emergency custody order

    My husband is deployed and his ex wife has a convicted fellon living with her we live in Kentucky and she lives in Illinois Kentucky is where jurisdiction is for their custody case

    Lisa’s Answer

    I don't see that you have the requisite standing to bring suit based on the facts you've presented. The divorce decree may or may not address having members of the opposite sex staying over night while the children are present. If it does address this and she is in violation of the order, then this is a contempt issue. But you will need to consult a local attorney in your area as I am not licensed in KY.

    First of all I am not licensed in AZ, but I would recommend contacting an attorney in your state to petition the court for change of guardianship over your mother.

    Lisa’s Answer

    You really need to consult with a personal injury attorney in your state. Your fact pattern reflects you have not accomplished anything on your own. Most accident cases are taken on contingency fee and most consults are free. So you have nothing to lose in contacting an attorney about your case. You have everything to lose by trying to work it yourself.

  • My girlfriends ex hasn't paid child support in almost a year. What are our options?

    He is suppose to pay $700 a month.

    Lisa’s Answer

    This is a contempt issue. He has not completed what the court has ordered therefore he is in contempt. She should retain an attorney in her state to assist with this contempt issue.

    First of all I recommend retaining an attorney in your area. However, it is not the filing that is the hard part, if this is a contested matter the hard part comes in proving up your case for joint.

    Lisa’s Answer

    You need to contact your local social security office, if your father is deceased and your disability began before you turned 18 you may be entitled to benefits under him.
