It has been 10 years since I last worked in a capacity by which I was required to be a mandated reporter. The latest position was a MFT Trainee, ( I was 2 classes from finishing the degree by the way). I was told by a therapist friend that I was o...
If you're not actively engaged in, and maintaining credentials in, a capacity which makes you a mandated reporter, then you're no longer a mandated reporter. An ex-psychologist, who's let her license lapse, and is working as a baker, is not a mandated reporter.See question
Can a person face a criminal AND civil trial for the exact same offense? Or is there anything in the constitution that protects a person from that?
Perfectly legal. You can only face trial on criminal charges once for the same offense, but you can also be sued civilly.See question
After having custody of my son for 3.5 years, I'm now faced with the task of overcoming the presumption of Family Code 3044. I've completed above and beyond of the court ordered classes. I have no history is substance abuse, unfortunately did no...
It's been done; I've done it and seen it done. What's not clear from your question, however, is what the conduct underlying the "finding of DV" looked like, and what effect a judge thinks it'll have on the child. Chasing the other parent around with a knife, or beating them in the presence of the child, will obviously have a vastly different impact on what a judge does with custody that the effect of a DV order issued on the basis of, say, annoying phone calls. This is VERY fact-driven, so you'll need to be consulting an EXPERIENCED family law attorney; it's NOT a do-it-yourself project.See question
If yes, what are some safe to visit websites that irrefutably prove seperation of church and state for North America please? Thank ya ;)
The problem with your question is that "irrefutably prove" stuff. This is a matter of constitutional interpretation, and so you can't "prove" it in the sense that you can "prove" that water is made from oxygen and hydrogen, for example.See question
I'm interested to know if anyone is successfully using constitutional arguments in custody battles, or if this is largely seen as a novelty. Issues such as fundamental liberty interest, due process, equal protection, the lack of a “fitness” heari...
There have been constitutional arguments raised in all sorts of family law matters in many states, but given the lack of agreement among the states about SUBSTANTIVE family law rules, most of the Constitutional litigatrion has related to procedural questions. It's unlikely for example, that the SCOTUS will order a uniform nation-wide standard for child custody any time in the next couple of decades.See question
I am non custodial parent. There was a visitation order in effect but custodial parent filed restraining order which was granted for 4 years. My son will be 17 when it is absolved. So if I can't see my son I do not want to pay child support. I...
That's not how it works; if you terminate your parental rights, that doesn't terminate your parental responsibilities, like supporting your child.
Even if there's a restraining order in effect, the court will usually make "carve-outs" in the restraining order to permit custodial time/visitation, IF you asked for them at the time of the restraining order hearing.See question
It was filed in the Stanley Mosk courthouse in downtown L.A. Does anyone know how backed up they are? I've tried to call, too, and no one ever picks up the phone. The judgment has been waiting for a signature from the judge for over a month.
Welcome to the age of court budget cuts. As others have answered, depending on the judgment,(how long? how complicated?) and how much is in the hopper ahead of you, it can easily be four to six MONTHS, and then ONLY if the judgment and all the related paperwork is 100% correct on the first pass through. Because of the backlog, if the clerks find any major error in your paperwork they will probably send it back to you to fix, but until it's fixed, they won't go any further in looking for OTHER errors.See question
My divorce was final 3 months ago, and the x spouses is now living with her boyfriend; which can easily be proven by a private investigator. My understanding she is using alimony ($2,000 a month) to pay all their expenses, As he is unemployed and...
Length of time is less of a factor than the economic relationship. Unfortunately, it doesn't sound like the cohabitation is resulting in any economic benefit to your ex, so even if you prove the cohabitation, it may not get you a termination of spousal support. What a judge is looking for is some financial benefit or advantage to the supported spouse from the cohabitation, , whether due to shared expenses, or additional cash available.See question
My firm shares a building with another company. They occupy the second floor. They hired a large commercial contractor (CC hereafter) to lay new flooring, and the CC declined to notify my office about using multiple chemicals specified in Prop65,...
Not enough info. Who's giving you your scientific information? How do you know what the contractor was using, and how much, and when? Crystalline silica, for instance, is a particle solid; it creates no "fumes", per se. Hexavalent chromium, same thing. Someone do an air particle test showing what was in the air, at which times?See question
