I have a friend who lives in a condo in Kentucky and pays a

I have a friend who lives in a condo in Kentucky and pays a monthly condo fee? She took her 7 yr old granddaughter with her to the condo pool. Apparently, a child already there had unfortunately vomited and was in the pool, (please note the condo association president was also laying out there with 2 friends as well because she made it clear who she was) my friend concerned about allowing her granddaughter to enter the pool asked the condo president there what should they do? As the adult member of the child who vomited/spitup started getting the vomit/spitup out, the condo president stated it would be alright to get in? My friend still concerned called the property group and stated the concern to them , and they said they would call the pool man? My friend became very upset and was being called an instigator by the president, while still not allowing her granddaughter to go in the pool the condo president started chastising/accusing her of child abuse for not allowing her granddaughter to get in and that it was ok and proceeded to jump in herself (as well as her male friend) Eventually the property group called my friend back and sent someone to clean the pool which would take about 45 mintues. The condo president and her 2 people with her (one male and one female) started telling her to get out and that no one liked her anyway while also telling other people entering the pool area that it was her fault that the pool was closed, my friend starting to get very upset and granddaughter decided to leave. My friend does not have a lot of money and would like your advice on what she should do? She plans on going to the condo association meeting next week and complain as this is harassment and could have been a potential health issue? Please respond if you could? Thanks so much for your time?Rob

I have a question that relates to Family Court, disability

Hello, I have a question that relates to Family Court, disability and poverty. My best friend and her husband are both low income. They both do not have their drivers licenses. She cannot drive because she has epilepsy, and he is busy working all the time to the point where it is hard for him to find the time to learn how to drive. This has resulted in making it difficult to remove unwanted pieces of furniture and objects from the home, because they couldn't get a truck, and no body in the their family was ever available to help with moving for more than one day. So, over the course of many years things built up, and started crowding the apartment. Just yesterday they took both of her children away, because of the clutter and she is afraid she has lost her daughters forever. She is torn apart, and her husband doesn't know what to do. They are lost. Furthermore, their daughter has mental health issues; might be ADHD or Autism, she was just about to have have her evaluated by a behavioral counselor before they took them. These case workers did not provide any warning, and they did not offer a mediation before taking both of the girls. They just came over after an initial visit and took the girls. Is there any advice?

My 6 year niece was being touch by another 6 year student

Hello!My 6 year niece was being touch by another 6 year student throughout the school day. She has been behaving very withdrawn, complaining to the nurse frequently about headaches or stomach pains to get sent home. She even developed what seems to be Encropsis. She has been soiling her pants for the past week. Today it was brought to our attention that they caught the other child hands in her pants. My niece broke down crying informing us and the school teacher that she's afraid to tell us because the other student threatened to not be her friend if she told anyone. The school informed the other parent and the other parent stated that they will talk to their daughter! As an educator, this is a matter where child protective services should have been contact and the other child should not have been released to the parent.WHERE WERE THE ADULTS WHEN MY NIECE WAS BEING TOUCHED? WHERE IS THE SUPERVISION? WHY WAS THE CASE NOT REPORTED TO THE STATE REGARDING THE OTHER SIX YEAR OLD! THAT OTHER CHILD COULD BE GOING TO A HOME WITH A MOLESTER THERE!This occurred in Fort Lauderale Florida. Please advice.

I received a certified letter from my local police

I received a certified letter from my local police department from a detective who wanted to speak with me regarding a "possible illegal conduct" I was involved in. I received it after hours, and was freaking out! I do not have a criminal background at all, so I was panicking. I called the police dispatch line just to find out what the issue was. Dispatch put me on hold to read the report and came back to the call laughing. She said she had not read anything that stupid in a long time. Apparently the company that I rented to own my daughter's violin from felt that I still owed them money. We purchased it in 2012 and automatic payments were deducted from our account monthly. At least 2 full years of payments were made, so we thought the violin was paid off and never heard anything again. It was out of sight, out of mind for us as my daughter quit orchestra after the second year.Well, they apparently tried to file criminal charges (against just me, despite the fact the contract is in my husband's name first). Upon my research, I discovered that I was at fault as we changed banks and we probably owed $165 at most as I had the breakdown of how much of the payment was applied to the instrument and how much was applied to the rental agreement. We, however, had changed banks and moved, so I guess everything got lost within all the changes. The company however informed the police department that we owed them $290! I have an email in June of 2014 from the owner of the company of where she clearly states that my payoff at that point was $209 and I have records of making at least 3 payments after that. For the sake of just not wanting to deal with it, I returned the violin this morning (even though it was almost paid off). I just didn't want to deal with them. They notified the police department that they would not be pursuing charges.My questions are: With murderers, rapists, and child abusers out there, how in the world, would this be considered a criminal charge and even a blip on a police departments radar (and not considered a civil issue)? and can I press charges after them for filing a false report for all of the inaccuracies?

My ex girlfriend just told me I would hear from her lawyer.

My ex girlfriend just told me I would hear from her lawyer. She says I am a stalker and she has text to prove it.We broke up in December 2015 (she was in Germany on vacation from December to mid January 2016). I have not seen her since she left in early December 2015. She is back in San Diego now (has been since mid January). We started dating originally around May 2015. (I need to check on the exact date we started dating).She contacted me out of the blue in early April.During our texts I have been quite mean and insulting to be honest. I have on several occasions told her she is bad for me and to NEVER text me again. She usually texts me anyway after a few days.However, I can't stress that I have been really mean and insulting to her. The insults center around the fact that she has basically jumped into another mans arms and is using him to support herself financially. I have the same feeling that was what she was doing to me.The question I have, is there any legal ground she has to charge me with stalking? I feel like the answer is no. But, again, I can be an asshole at times. So I wonder If my insults give her any leverage.I should also point out that our relationship was centered around drugs for the most part. That info is clearly in the text messages.What are your thoughts? Am I in any legal danger?Thanks!- Mike
