Generally, full-time is considered 35-40 hours per week. There isn't an absolute rule on what constitutes full-time or part-time status. Why does this matter? Have you been denied benefits that are only available to full-timers? Is there a published company policy on this? Are you subject to an employment contract or collective bargaining agreement. Email me some details and I'll try to help you. Good luck.

If you're self-employed, and you're not paying yourself, then it certainly sounds like an alimony obligation is unfair at this point. It sounds like you are stuck with a long-term obligation, and yet nobody is analyzing the real numbers. We would be happy to crunch the numbers, examining present and future value of alimony and house proceeds, etc. I think if a judge saw the real numbers, it might persuade him or her to take another look at the situation.

This may constitute a form of sex discrimination. Currently, there is a bill pending known as the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA), which will address sexual orientation and sexual preference issues... The current law is less than clear about these issues. But I believe the questions your friend was asked were improper, and I'd be interested in speaking further with you about this situation. Please feel free to contact me (no charge).

Sounds to me like these guys are playing hardball. You have lots of rights under the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act. It's difficult to determine from you facts exactly which rights they may have violated. They can possibly apply an IRS intercept to get to your tax refund. You may wish to challenge their wage garnishment. Or you may wish to have an attorney re-negotiate the settlement terms. Unless you put some pressure on them, they'll keep moving forward against you. Please feel free to...
Sounds interesting. I'd like to hear more about this. You may have a false arrest, unlawful detention case. (Do you know what probably cause the police or sheriff had to arrest you in the first place?)

You won't be charged as a "runaway." If you miss school, you may face truancy charges. If you move out, you may lose certain rights to support. Why not hold out a little bit longer -- until you graduate and until you're 18...it will make life a lot easier, and you'll feel much more comfortable with your decision.
You may very well have grounds to sue or to demand a reduced price. While it is always best to put all such deals in writing, the contractor cannot arbitrarily raise the price after you made the deal and began relying on his original price. This concept is known as "detrimental reliance." Unless the contractor offers new consideration to you, he is stuck with the original price. You have the right to demand a lower price (or a refund if you already paid it).

This sounds like a very serious situation, and I would encourage your son to act aggressively as early as possible because the district attorney always has the timing advantages in this kind of case.
If he was coerced to give a statement, you may need to file a suppression motion to get the statement "suppressed" or thrown out of evidence. There may be other defenses and motions that can be raised in this case. If three other people were involved, you should be conducting an investigation...
If it's an attempted aggravated murder -- which is what it sounds like -- the defendant would face a minimum sentence of at least 20 years in jail up to 40 years in jail, and a maximum sentence of life in prison under the New York Penal Code. But an attempted Class A-1 felony such as murder may have be be subject to many considerations -- such as whether the Defendant has a prior criminal history, whether he's a persistent felony offender, whether conspiracy claims can be sustained, etc.
