While a dissolution is pending, the standard financial restraining orders would prevent either spouse from terminating or changing the beneficiary of a life insurance policy without the consent of the other spouse or the court's approval.
If a "whole life" policy was paid for during the marriage with community assets, it was community property. The asset should have been disclosed in your former spouse's financial and property declarations, and its disposition should be part of the...
Rape means being forced to engage in sex against your will by force, fear, duress, or similar coercion.
Having sex with someone you just met is a voluntary but potentially dangerous choice. You're taking a risk he lied to you. He's taking a risk you lied to him. Probably not the best idea.
If the prosecutor files a charge and you fail to appear, a warrant may be issued for your arrest. That is what usually happens when someone does not appear after being notified of a court date. Usually, the only exceptions are if the prosecutor cannot prove you were notified of the court date, or if they have decided not to proceed with the case. There is probably no way to know why your previous FTA did not result in a warrant, but it is certainly no guarantee that this case will be treated...
That's tough to say. Usually, in a criminal or juvenile case, the "best option" is a finding of not guilty or a dismissal.
There is no way to predict the "best option" from an online posting in this forum. If you are a family member of one of these boys, you need to convince the family to consult with an experienced local criminal defense attorney who is experienced with juvenile court and with sexual assault cases. These boys are potentially facing consequences that could last for life,...
When you get to court, your lawyer can subpoena any documents related to the case, such as the store's loss prevention manuals and procedures. Unfortunately, this "policy" isn't legally binding on the court or the prosecutor and probably doesn't give rise to a defense.
If you cannot afford to hire an experienced local attorney, request a public defender when you get to court.
In the 1970s, the California Supreme Court ruled that privileges such as Doctor-Patient do not apply when the patient states that he intends to harm or kill another person. http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tarasoff_v._Regents_of_the_University_of_California. Other states adopted the same rule.
You don't have the power to "drop the charges." The police investigate crime whether or not the victims or witnesses wish them to do so. The prosecutors are not "your lawyer" and they are not acting on your instructions.
Even when a victim wishes for the prosecutor to dismiss a case, the prosecutor has to consider the overall public interest. What if he assaults you again or kills you? What if he is violent with someone else?
To help your husband, hire him an experienced local defense...
"Possession for sale" means possession of an illegal drug or narcotic with the intent to sell, trade, or even give away.
You must disclose the offense to the recruiter. Failure to disclose will guarantee that you will be declared ineligible for military service.
If you block her from facebook, she will not be able to read your comments or postings, or see your photos.
The two children have an interest in both enjoying a relationship with their father and with their half-siblings. Until the father is out of jail, it is probably best to avoid contact. When he is out, the three of you should work out a co-parenting arrangement, so that it is clear when the children will each visit with their father, when such visits will overlap, etc. Having a totally...
