Have your son call a criminal defense attorney to discuss the details. He really should be represented by an experienced lawyer for this type of charge. If he has no prior criminal history that will help in getting the case resolved.See question
Been divorce for a while now, and my daughter has asked if she could move in with me instead of living with mom ( who has custody)
Because of her age, her preference is a factor the judge will consider but it is not the end story. As with other decisions for kids, it is never completely up to a child, a judge still needs to determine grounds for modification and that it would be in the child's best interests. You should consider retaining an experienced divorce attorney to help you through this process.See question

It sounds like you may be eligible for expungement on the charges you described but here is what you need to know:
Unless a person has been pardoned for the offense, records of the following crimes cannot be expunged:
a capital felony, first degree felony or violent felony (Utah Code Section 76-3-203.5);
felony driving under the influence; or
a registerable sex offense (Utah Code Section 77-41-102);
A person cannot expunge records of any conviction if:
the petitioner provides false or misleading information on the application for the certificate of eligibility; (It is also a criminal offense to provide false or misleading information on the application.)
there is a criminal case pending;
the petitioner has been convicted in separate criminal episodes of:
two or more felonies;
three or more crimes of which two are class A misdemeanors;
four or more crimes of which three are class B misdemeanors; or
five or more crimes of any degree other than infractions and the traffic offenses identified in Section 77-40-102.

If you haven't entered a plea yet (it doesn't sound like you have), and you don't have a lawyer (it doesn't sound like you do), hire an attorney to review the case and evidence to see if more can be done. There may be options for you to take a plea that doesn't interfere with your work (weekend time, etc.).See question

My ex-husband got upset because our 13-year-old daughter skipped school a few weeks ago. She admitted it to me when I confronted her, and I explained the dangers of not being where I expect her to be. She was very remorseful and accepted her punis...
I would suggest you call and speak to a family law attorney about these issues. From your summary it doesn't sound as though he was actually make any real threat of harm to your daughter, more like he is over reacting and trying to "teach her a lesson." You may have justifiable concerns however and it may be worth seeking some protections/changes in your divorce case. Again, call and talk details with a lawyer.See question

Did judge grant temporary civil stalking injunction or did you attend another hearing on her new request for civil stalking injunction and the judge issued the permanent injunction? If the permanent injunction was entered following the hearing, you may be able to appeal depending on how long it has been since the injunction was issued. If the judge has only issued a temporary injunction than you still have your day in court coming and you should retain a lawyer.See question
Background: Mother and Father have a 1 year old daughter. They are unmarried, but live together. They have no formal custody arrangement. Dad has a probation violation and gets sentenced to 30 days in jail. While dad is in jail mom decides ...
Absent court order to the contrary you are not "breaking any law" by moving with your daughter out of state. However, when father is released he may very well file for custody and other child orders and ask for the return of your daughter. You may then be stuck fighting a custody battle in the state you moved from. You should speak with a lawyer in the state you are now living to determine what the best course of action may be for you to file for custody and related child orders in your new state.See question

If she is continually filing the same claims every year, you need to have your attorney this time around ask the court to put some finality on the issues. If you can demonstrate to the judge that every year she is filing a motion for order to show cause, asking for the same relief, or whatever it may be, than the court may issue an order preventing repeated filings in the future. You need to discuss the details with a lawyer who can come up with a more permanent solution to exactly what it is you are facing.See question
