  1. Adoption of Children: Re: Adoption of Step Child in California (Tricky Situation)

    Medical Malpractice: Re: Steroids Injected into Normal Disc's

    This would be a legal question if your clinic's procedure was not only abnormal, but also caused you injury somehow. Otherwise, this is a medical question, not a question of medical malpractice.

  8. Re: Can an Adult Legally Be with His Minor Girlfriend

  9. Sex Offenses: Re: Can I Legally Record a Minor and a Adult Kissing Each Other

  12. Retail Fraud / Shoplifting: Re: Caught Shoplifting $3 Worth of Items, Now What Nrtd

    A word of advice: understand what you're signing before you sign it, even though you're in trouble. These databases are pretty much where retail stores can enter in identification of people they've...
  13. Professional Conduct: Re: Opposing Counsel Has Conflict of Interest Do I Have a Right to Know What That is

    Property Rights: Re: Ex Moved Out - Took My Stuff

    I suggest you try small claims court if the value of all the stuff is a little over $1,000. As for rent, you'll probably have to negotiate with your landlord to bring it down, as now there's only one...

    Enforcement of Judgments: Re: Divorce What Does the Legal Term Abeyance Mean

    As far as I can tell, abeyance in this part of the contract means "to be determined". Since your children's future is too far in the distance to determine, like what schools they will go to, what...

  19. Custody and Visitation Issues: Re: What Do I Do About My Daughter's Father Abandoning Her

    If you want him to be a father, there is no force in heaven or earth which can force him to do so. If you want financial support though, I suggest you seek child support.

    Enforcing Custody Orders: Re: Disagreement Over Schooling
