Can a judge waive the waiting period before granting my divorce nisi?: I my ex and I filed for a divorce back in December after being separated for nearly 2 years. We split amicably, no assets to divvy up, and we have no children. I called the courthouse a few days ago to find out what the hold up on getting a hearing date was, only to find out that per their mistake, they never officially filed our divorce request, and had I not called, I would still be waiting. They then said they'd allow us to walk in any day and see the judge on the spot. My dilema is, I've recently found out that my new significant other has ALS. He lives in Ireland, and is slowly losing motor skills, etc. we want to get married to be able to enjoy the time we have together, and so that I can also help him deal with this horrible disease. Is it possible to request the judge waive the divorce Nisi waiting period? Because of the courts mistake, the process has dragged on longer than I expected, and now more than ever, I have a sense of urgency. What are my options?

Henry’s answer: HAVE YOUR LAWYER OR YOU GO TO THE CLERK'S OFFICE. CHECK THE DOCKET, AND IF IT WASN'T MAILED ASK THE CLERK FOR HELP.

Can I be charged with solicitation of prostitution from text messages?: I responded an an online ad on Backpage last night and I got a response after 2 messages that my number was recorded for solicitation for police. There was no talk of sex or rates or arrangement or meeting. I told her she looked great, and asked her what her Latin background was/where was she from... But I don't know, and don't know if I need to worry. I was stupid and lonely after bad breakup and did something stupid. Do I need to worry? Will police go through my phone records? Other text messages? I had messaged other girls mostly no response, but one mentioned money and i didn't respond again.

Henry’s answer: this was a sting. A lawyer would have to review the police report and the texts for possible entrapment and other defenses
