I'm sure you can find any number of Fourth and Fifth Amendment cases that say that anything anyone does in plain view in a public space can be videotaped or photographed without permission.
The only time you MIGHT need permissions would be if that image were to be commercially exploited for profit by someone who did not get a photo release from the subject(s). [This has come up with commercial interests like banks using casual photos of other people they ganked from online photo libraries like Flickr.See question
Our neighbors installed 3 cameras on their house with one of them pointing directly at the front of my house and yard. I understand the front yard is fair game but the front of my house has 3 windows, one family room and the other 2 kids bedrooms ...
Whatever is in plain sight out in the open is fair game for photography or video surveillance as long as it is not a physical trespass on your property. There has been a topic of frequent legal discussion with respect to technology concerning drones, Google Maps, Google Earth and similar photography.
So, yes, you do have to keep the children's blinds closed or have some kind of translucent curtain on your exterior windows unless you don't mind people looking in who can.
This answer might be different if instead of a neighbor issue, it involved government surveillance with a camera on the neighbor's property with his permission. This might be a Fourth, Fifth and Sixth Amendment issue.See question
I had a trial for assaulting that was sealed and dismissed after a court held on July,15 2016. Then I received this letter from the court stating me to be advised that on August 17 the people state their readiness for trial.
if your case was completely disposed of with a dismissal, getting the notice you received is probably some automatic thing and an error. The notice to which you refer is a "speedy trial" requirement that the prosecutors be ready for a trial if the matter is not disposed of within six months of the arraignment. If they are not ready (i.e., don't have necessary evidence or witnesses they need), the case can be dismissed under CPL Section 30.30.
You should just call up the Clerk of Court and confirm the notice is in error or non-applicable to your case.See question
My son's mother tranferred him from school to school because he was not doing well. I thought she would have to get the fathers signature before she can transfer him. I did not want him tranferred again. She did this three times and eventually dro...
In New York, most custody orders and indeed even in privately negotiated separation agreements, the custody orders or decrees usually to not get into the details over parental control of the child's school. It would merely say the parents had "joint legal custody" which implies at least in my mind, and that of most clients, would include some consultation over educational choices and non-emergency health care issues.
Whether you can frame that as a violation petition might depend on what the child thinks of these school changes as expressed to the attorney for the child and whether the school choice ultimately is rational. And if your basic beef is "I wasn't consulted and should have been", I don't know how this plays out in terms of the governing standard of what is in the best interests of the child. Ultimately, I see a settlement that would amend the existing order to compel advise and consent on educational, health and religious issues (the definition of the "big deal" issues that "joint legal custody" entails).
As to support, that will depend on the child's circumstances, whether he is self sufficient, such as employed, in the military, married, etc. Google for "emancipation of minors".See question

There may be some wrinkle in NC law, but generally if the landlocked property owner actually used the right of way continuously to the present for more than the state's adverse possession oeriod (and some other possibly applicable conditions), the easement was not personal to the former owner but "runs with the land" at this point. As such, you can not block the new owner or deny him use of the easementSee question
Can one bring a lawsuit in federal Court against a NYCHA attorney for submitting false evidence in State Court
Probably not. You'd have to be alleging some kind of Fourtheenth Amendment due process or equal protection (civil rights) argument against a state agency acting outside its proper jurisdiction to deprive you of federal civil rights "under color or law". Something an agency attorney says is a proceeding of another state agency is probably not an agency action made "under color of state law" and those statements have a limited privilege bring made in a judicial proceeding. You have to prove not only that an attorney for an agency "lied" in a hearing (in your view), but that his actions were a bad faith conspiracy to deprive you of your civil rights. If your issue is personal and not group identity (race, gender, national origin, etc.) you have little chance of getting redress in Federal Court.See question
I recently moved into a new home development. Our neighbor wanted to build a fence between our houses. The grade is fairly steep and the space between the houses is tiny so I allowed them to design it. However I didn't realize from their design th...
You raise some interesting questions that are difficult to entirely answer because it's hard to envision exactly what you are talking about from your description. I do, however, believe you may have some valid concerns over yard access, liability and possible claims of adverse possession and property line issues in the future.
The best way IMO of dealing with this is a formal boundary line maintenance agreement which spells all of these details out and is executed like a deed by both parties and recorded in the Clerk's Office, Registrar of Deeds or equivalent in OR. The biggest benefit of doing this is it will foreclose any claims of adverse possession by your neighbor or anyone he sells the property to if he does that. When there is an encroachment by permission and recognized as such by both parties, a claim of adverse possession can not be maintained.
You would be well advise to seek a real estate attorney's advice and assistance with negotiating the agreement and drafting it for execution and recording.See question

Is there currently some kind of written or oral agreement concerning maintenance and replacement of the fence or cost sharing. Sometimes such agreements exist, but usually agreements unchanged as this which govern real property boundaries are written, authenticated like a deed, and recorded in the Clerk's a Office or Registry of Deeds. In many other instances, the boundary fence is entirely on one person's property and is owned by tha person and maintained by that person exclusively, although consultation about anything having to do with a fence with the affected neighbor before one dies something with a fence is a good thing to do.

Want to add my fiance as a co owner of my house
Easy. Just prepare a quitclaim deed from you as grantor to you and someone, as [tenants in common/joint tenants with rights of survivorship/husband and wife] in recordable form (exactly like your current recorded deed) and submit it with the two required forms and filing fees to the County Clerk for recording.See question
