I want my name changed to my step dads last name or to be just adopted by him but I don't want to have to have my biological dads consent to do it
Once you are an adult you do not need your parents' consent to do either an adoption or a name change. The easier, of course, is the name change and an adoption carries a lot of later issues. It also requires your step-father's consent as you cannot become someone's heir without their agreement.See question
I got a letter today that basically says the father of my children filed bankruptcy and listed me as someone he owes debt to. This debt would be child support for 3 children. How is this possible? I had the understanding that child support was a o...
No, child support is exempt from discharge in bankruptcy. It may be that he listed the obligation but did not indicate it was for child support.
You ought to get a bankruptcy lawyer to deal with this issue, probably in State the bankruptcy is filed.See question
Got divorced in 2014 in Washington ststate...did it online and at the time agreed to no child support for either parent. I was supposed to get custody but my daughter ended up not moving with me to Utah. Now she wants to come live with me. Can I g...
How old is your daughter and where has she been for the past few years? When you go divorced what did the Parenting Plan say concerning your daughter. If you did this on line where was the case filed/ I know of only one county that allows a divorce when the parties are not present and I have never heard of it by email. Further, I have not heard of a court approving a final plan where no support was ordered.
When you divorced where did the father live and where does he live now. It is important to know since you cannot file in Utah unless your former husband has some personal contact with the state, not counting just a visit with you. If there is no personal jurisdiction you would need to start the custody matter where the father resides at this time.

I am being threatened collections also asked to sign a promissory note, all on the medical bills I've been receiving
People do not have to accept what you determine to pay on your debt. If they disagree with the amount they can demand that you pay more or the entire amount and they have a right to take you to court and get a judgment for collection purposes.See question
A loved one of mine was arrested on a warrant with 2 Felony Intimidation charges. A bond was posted, we paid 10% ($500.) The day after he was released a new warrant popped up for a case the courts were reopening in a new court room. It is a charge...
The no bond provision has nothing to do with him being out on bond in another case. Normally, such warrants have been outstanding for some time and just discovered or they were waiting to serve it. At any rate, it is unlikely related to the base with the bail bond.
It is possible to be bonded out on more than one case. It could be, to, that the no bond provision remains making the bonded case a factual non-entity since he will be held in jail.

I'm being garnished through my employer for an ex girlfriend's back rent. This has been 2 months so far and a future court date is set. Suddenly there is a charge in my checking account for the same amount I'm currently paying through my employe...
Your question is odd. There is generally no authority to garnish anyone for anything until there is a judgement that a debt is owed. So the fact that you and she are in court does not mean the court has ruled in her favor. Therefore, I am a little confused as to how there is a garnishment anyplace.
Once a judgment is rendered, however, it is perfectly permitted to attach wages and bank accounts and any other financial entity until the full amount of the judgement is obtained. Then all such collections are ended.
The normal procedure in a garnishment is that the Writ is filed and served, the garnishee defendant withholds money until there is an order telling it to release the money to the creditor or to revoke the garnishment and to release the held funds. Banks are preferable to employment, depending on the amount of the judgment because you get the full amount where you only get a percentage with employers.
Talk to a lawyer to see if there is anything you can do, especially because what you say, if true, is an improper garnishment.See question
My son is getting a divorce. His abusive wife has the children. One evening while the mother was screaming, hitting her 12 y/o son she began choking him. He sent a text to his dad "HELP, mom choking". He called 911 and immediately left to go to th...
Strongly suspect is not the same as proof. Further, not all 12 year old's are reliable when they make claims. That is why there is an investigation. Without more evidence you are not in a good position to do anything and, in addition of course, the one to be involved is your son and not you.
Reminder for the future. In some states it is a crime to record private conversations without both parties consenting which means full disclosure. Be sure to check the law in your state to see if it is a one party or a two party consent state.See question

Have you asked your attorney this question? That's one of the reasons you have an attorney.
If I had to guess, I think your attorney asked the other attorney about a specific date to argue about the late Interrogatories along with a motion to compel and to install sanctions.See question

You need to talk to your attorney and, probably, an immigration attorney as well. You are likely looking at some serious issues with immigration given the current attitude in this country.
You may be able to work some sort of plea agreement so maintain your not guilty status until your lawyer has had an opportunity to deal with the issues. While you are in trouble if you have to go to trial there is a lot that goes into criminal matters that a trial does not deal with.See question
