After two years you may have a problem with the statute of limitations on a civil claim. Most claims of this type have to be brought in a relatively short period of time.
Even if you have time to file the civil lawsuit, it may be difficult to justify the time and expense. A successful lawsuit will provide you with a judgment establishing what the shooter owes you for the damage they have caused. This will include pain and suffering, but will likely not include the collateral damage due to people misunderstanding what lead to the assault However, the only person you can collect from is the person who shot you. He is not going to be out of prison for a long time. He is not going to earn very much while he is incarcerated. Because of this, unless you determine that he owns valuable property or is in line for a large inheritance, it will take you decades to collect any substantial amount. You cannot force a person to pay money that they don't have.See question
Will target sue me if I don't pay a 250$ Civil demand ??.
Probably not. Although the law allows shoplifting victims to pursue a civil judgment up to $250, the cost of hiring an attorney to pursue and collect the judgment would usually exceed that amount. For this reason I have never seen a major retailer pursue these demands in court.See question
I was deprived of due process provided by the United States Constitution in both, the Wisconsin Supreme Court's Medical Mediation Panels in a medical malpractice claim, and in the Circuit Court. Both court deprived me of a full and fair hearing. ...
No, what you described will not be considered by a federal court.
The process your were "due" in your case is outlined by the rules and statutes of Wisconsin. If your case was dismissed due to your failure to follow those procedures, you have no claim since you were given all the process you were entitled to. If, on the other hand, the decision to dismiss your case was not proper under Wisconsin law, your remedy is to appeal those decisions in the state court system.
You may have a claim against your attorney for missing deadlines and failing to take the proper actions to pursue your claim.See question

The problem you have is that when you are a thief people tend not to trust you. A successful lawsuit will require you to convince a jury that you are telling the truth. Additionally, if you don't have serious and lasting injuries, the amount you are likely to recover even if a jury believes you is going to be limited. In such a case, it is unlikely that an attorney would be able to justify handling your case without an up front payment and the cost of litigation may exceed what you are able to recover.
If you do have serious and ongoing injuries, that might change the analysis of your case and make it worth pursuing. In that case, you should schedule a consultation with a personal injury attorney to discuss your options. Generally, you have one year from the incident to file a lawsuit based on assault.See question

The inconsistencies can certainly be raised, but whether the discrepancy could affect the prosecutor's ability to establish the charges against you beyond a reasonable doubt (which is the only issue in a trial that matters) will depend on what you are charged with and what evidence the prosecutor has. Discuss this with your criminal defense attorney.See question

I don't think you have described any violation of your civil rights. You have a First Amendment right to speak out at the city council meeting. City officials have the right to be upset by your statements and to make their own statements.
If the city official or chief of police took official action in retaliation for your statements, then you might have a civil rights case you could pursue. However, you didn't describe any such action in your post.See question

Frankly, no one in the United States is likely to care about your allegations. Your best bet may be to put this behind you and focus on your own life rather than your ex's personal life.
You have proof that your ex-husband fathered a child while married to you which is not illegal in the United States. If it is illegal in Morocco, you could report the adultery to the authorities there I suppose, but this website deals with U.S. law.
You have a suspicion that your husband married another woman as well as getting her pregnant. You have no actual proof that this is true, the relationship took place in Morocco and your ex does not appear to ever have claimed in the United States to have been legally married to this second woman. As such, there is no indication that what he did violated any U.S. law. Even if he did marry this woman in Morocco, he did not claim her as a legal wife in the United States so I don't think he could be prosecuted here.
Once again, if the second marriage is illegal in Morocco, you could report his actions to the proper authorities in that country.
Bigamy is rarely prosecuted in the United States even when all of the people involved live in the same state. Getting a prosecutor interested usually requires showing that the multiple marriages lead to some sort of fraud involving insurance, taxes, or other benefits. I can see no possibility that a prosecutor would want to pursue charges against your ex based on a suspected bigamous marriage entered into in another country with someone who has never visited the Untied States.See question

The judge did not disregard the law. He told you that the law did not require 60 days. If you believe the judge's interpretation of the law is incorrect (this happens all the time) then the remedy is to appeal to a higher court. That is the whole purpose of the appellate courts.See question
I need to know if my sons father on a visit can take our son for non emergency care without my consent?
No, the father should not be taking the child to a doctor for non-emergency care without your consent. However, depending on what the appointment is, you should consider whether this is the fight that is worth your time and energy. If this is a critical issue you can ask the Court to sanction him and he will likely get a stern talking-to by the judge.See question
