    Kyle’s Answer

    If you were convicted of a felony, then 18 U.S.C. 922(g) prohibits you from having a gun.

    You should immediately contact a lawyer to seek relief from your weapon's disability.

    Kyle’s Answer

    You should immediately and privately consult with an attorney who practices in the area of criminal defense and civil litigation. Do not post anything more online or speak about the matter with anyone who is not your attorney--what you say or write can be used against you in court.

    If you mess up, you can be charged with manufacturing, possessing, and/or distributing child pornography. This is a very serious crime that can land you on the sex offender registry. Prosecutors do charge minors for making pornography of themselves--a prospective client called me this past week about it.

    You may be a victim of "revenge pornography." Google it. You need to get in front of the problem before it grows worse.

    Contact an attorney immediately.

    Kyle’s Answer

    You should not talk about your case with anyone and you should not post anything about it online. What you say or write can be used against you in court.

    You should immediately and privately consult with a criminal defense attorney who can help you navigate the minefield so that you don't get jail time (i.e. stop using illegal drugs so that they won't show up in a drug test performed by the court the day you turn yourself in, turn yourself in on a Monday instead of a Friday--if you turn yourself in on a Friday, they might keep you in custody until you can next see the judge, etc).

  • How do I change my entire legal name?

    I want to change me entire name. First, middle, and last. Can this be done all at once? If my name was Jane Sally Doe and I wanted to change it to Leslie Jane-Sally Smith would that be possible? Especially all at once? It is not for marriage. I ju...

    Kyle’s Answer

    Yes, it is possible to legally change your entire name--so long as it is not for a fraudulent purpose. It is a relatively quick court hearing, but there is some paperwork that must be done and providers followed to get it done right.

    If you have a criminal record, a name change can have slightly more complexity.

    Kyle’s Answer

    You need to immediately and privately consult with an attorney. There is a four-part test the State needs to meet in order to suspend one's license for a solid year without driving privileges for refusing to submit to a chemical test for OWI. If you do not act fast, your rights will be waived.

  • Do I have a chance at being awarded sole legal custody so I can help my son?

    I am the primary custodial mom of two children 8 and 11 and their dad takes them 8 days/nights a month due to a fire fighter (24 hr shift) schedule. I stay at home and am remarried and expecting a baby in May. I am contemplating returning to famil...

    Kyle’s Answer

    You should immediately and privately consult with an attorney. Based upon what you relayed, a strong argument can be made that you should be awarded sole legal custody because of the inability of you guys to work together to do what is best for your children and since you are clearly the more responsible parent.

    DO NOT post anything online (even on Avvo) or speak about this with anyone who is not your attorney. What you write or say can be used against you in court.
