I'm 14 years old and when I turn 16 I want to get emancipated. Recently I got in a load of trouble and my parents kicked me out. I've been staying at my grandmothers for the past three weeks. Because I got in trouble, my mom will not allow me to r...
Given the facts as you have presented them, it is unlikely that you would be allowed to become emancipated. Generally, the Court is looking for someone that is employed such that they can support themselves, not living with a grandparent. Also, the individual must be mature and capable. Someone that has gotten in "loads of trouble" is not necessarily exhibiting the type of maturity that the Court would require.See question
I found a motion for a RDL on my ex husbands public report with a code 18.2-271.1 E. When I looked up the code, it talks about a DUI, however i cant find the actual DUI charge. Does this code mean that he was found guilty of a DUI or could it mean...
It's hard to know. I'm not sure where you're looking or why you are just seeing a motion. Motions are typically filed before convictions. It may be a pre-emptive filing. You could go to the page for General District Court case information and search for his name in the same county that the motion was brought.

my husbands son is on felony probation,he got a new charge for shop lifting in another town 6 hours away,didnt tell p.o. he is in custody now as of april 25 th ,now it says a committment order on apri 28th what does that mean and how much time is ...
An order of commitment is typically a mental health proceeding. Given that you are stating the 3 day timeframe, my guess is that he was given a "TDO" (temporary detention order) on the 25th. They then held a hearing and he was committed to the behavioral health unit on the 28th. They must hold these within 72 hours of the TDO.
Once committed, he can be held for up to 30 days. This does not mean that he won't still have pending criminal charges, but this is what appears to be happening.
Please note that I do *not* practice serious criminal actions, so this may be something different. I act as appointed counsel in commitment cases and this is what it sounds like to me.See question
I have been following the court order by picking/dropping off my 05 children for visitation every weekend. Two weeks ago I got charged with child neglect because my youngest son took off (my oldest son opened the door while I was cooking). After t...
Though an order may be in place, it doesn't mean that visitation *must* be exercised. You are doing what is in the best interests of your children. If she show causes you and refuses to work with you on this, I think a judge would have a few choice words for her.
I give you a lot of credit for recognizing what is safest for your children. Any judge would say the same. Congratulations for being a responsible parent even when it may mean your own time with them is lessened.See question
The court order states that I am not allowed to have any paramour around my son so that is where my ex kids that idea that my husband is a paramour.
Well, typically, the legal definition of a paramour is the lover of someone that is married to someone else.
But no, a husband is not a paramour.See question

You will need to ask your employer. There is nothing by law that will prevent you from maintaining employment, but they may have internal policies.See question

Virginia requires that the child live in a jurisdiction for six months before filing for custody, visitation, and support. Once that is reached, you can file with your local county Juvenile and Domestic court. They will help you fill out the paperwork. You do not need to be divorced to file.See question

It is not illegal to post pictures of family members. (I will assume that these are postings to Facebook or similar and that the photos themselves are not illegal - such as copyrighted by someone else that does not grant permission, child porn, or similar).See question
My child support payments were recently increased by $400 due to a modification requested from an out of state agency (Washington State DCSE) who works with the Virginia DCSE division for non-custodial parents that live in the state of Virginia. A...
It seems that this would best be asked in Washington since it appears that this is where the support originates. Virginia is merely enforcing it since you live in Virginia now. (That's the way I am reading your question.)
Any arrearages accrued from the time of service of the modification request until the court date can be added onto the order of support in VA. My suspicion is that Washington law would be the same.See question

There may be a couple of avenues open to you. First, if you are successor POA, she may agree to step aside or you may have rights to challenge her through the POA itself. Second, if there is no successor listed, she may be able to name you in her stead.
I recommend you take a copy of the POA to an attorney for review to see what options may be available to you.See question
