I have a bad fear about suffocation so I called suffocating to the act of keeping me from screaming by covering my mouth. we both wrestled back and forth. also I get super paranoid of me having a kid taken away. when we wrestled we did it a few times while I was holding the baby. so he wanted to go out side with the baby to just cool down. he tried to get in the car get away with the baby and I IMMIDIATELLY called that kidnapping and I told the report that he was trying to drive away with my baby. which at that hormonal moment that's what it looked like in my mind. now the bad parts. my husband has been on probation for Marihuana possetion a month before it became legal in Colorado. do it years of good behaviour. SO HE did. he was amazing. his probation was going to end in 3 months from now. but I called the cops and they arrested him. now I fear for him being years in jail. please help. also my husband has NO have a history of abuse with me. he has never hit me in 7 years. he is a great hardworking man and I fear I ruined his entire life. one thing though. that day of the incident my husband had a few beers which made the matter worse. when the officer came in my husband and I were wrestling and the baby was in the middle. again, because I am spool incredible dramatic , I cried and screamed bloody murder. I did yell and kick him back. and I was the first one to actually physically slap him. I also tell very loud. please I'm the name of my God help me save my husband's future. because of my emotional outburst I might have destroyd his life and ours. what can I do. first, can I tell the truth, this truth in court and say I over exaggerated in the report and also I left my physical aggression towards him out of the report. will me saying this will save him from jail at all? will he still be changed for violating probation even though it was me who over reacted. and it was me who created him to make an issue? it is my fault partly that he has police contact. please tell me how I can save him or if it's even possible. also. if I say I over exaggerated in the report because I have been so hormonal can I get charged with something. and with what? please help

Can excessive tardies, even though excused and also most

Can excessive tardies, even though excused and also most often between 5 and 15 minutes, be grounds for custody to go from 85/15 to 50/50? NCP is trying to say I am unfit because our 6 year old has tardies.They're more than their absences which are very few (no more than 7 absences). Child is doing great educationally and is excelling and ready for 1st grade. Most tardies are due to health while some are just technical issues (car trouble, missed alarms, etc.).NCP has been trying to take custody from me for 4 years for their own purposes and not the best interest of our child. NCP had to pay child support via court order a few months ago and because they can't get out of it any other way they're attempting to get 50 to not only avoid it but also to use our child for tax credits.NCP gave child to my physical custody because they were unfit and abusive towards me while neglecting our child. They are on a step up program with visitation. They got in trouble with IRS for claiming our child when they had no bounds for doing so. Now to get out of that, they are trying to get court to give them 50 by any means necessary.

My family has been traumatized by DSS over the last eighteen

My family has been traumatized by DSS over the last eighteen months. My grandchild's father made false allegations against by son-in-law regarding potential cigarette burns. DSS only talked to my grandson and his father at the hospital, never did our side get an opportunity to tell the truth. My wife and I had my grandson when the staph infection first manifested itself, we had seen this before and had doctor's advice on how to treat it. Again, we never got a chance to tell the truth until 8 months later we went to a hearing. Our lawyer embarrassed them and their mistake prone pseudo investigation. In the meantime, DSS actions had allowed a change of circumstance and custody to take place. We have successfully fought and have the original custody order back in place with my daughter as primary custodian. This has costs me $50k in legal fees. I feel DSS failed to properly investigate this case in the beginning, had they, it would have been obvious there were no burns and my grandson wasn't even in my daughter and son-in-laws care when the bumps broke out. She had just had another child and my wife and I were helping them by keeping my grandson for a few weeks. I need help in trying to recover the unnecessary legal expenses incurred fighting a frivolous charges. Can you recommend an attorney who may be able to help. Currently financially strapped due to the $50k spent to get my grandson back with his mother.JA: I am Pearl, the Lawyer's Assistant. Since laws vary from place to place, what state is this in?Customer: South CarolinaJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: We're been through the entire gauntlet. My son-in-law and daughter were both initially "founded". They had to move out of their home, eventually losing it. My son-in-law was arrested and charged with felony child endangerment, which was later dropped and expunged by the Solicitor. This was after he had spent in excess of $12k for criminal defense. The lawyer we had at the time had the DSS charges dropped in 10 minutes. She showed then pictures on my grandson's bottom and another child who had staph infection, they were almost identical. She also reminded them that all of them had training to identify cigarette burns, they knew these were not burns. 10 minutes later they dropped all charges but this was 8 months after they initiated the actions.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: There is so much that went wrong there may be other pertinent information but I'm not sure what that is.

I was accused of domestic violence against my partner of 10

I was accused of domestic violence against my partner of 10 years. I have no incidents of said behavior in past, however she does (DIR's and arrests for assaulting me but I refused to sign affidavit). Last June she charged at me and grabbed me pushing and pulling from behind. She received a bump on the head from running into my elbow which I had not realized what had happened till contact (definitely no intent). I told her it was an accident of her doing and she immediately claimed it was on purpose. Child was in bedroom watching tv with door closed unaware of what took place. She has had me arrested and twisted story and claimed child was present, requested and ambulance all to intensify outcome. I have been removed from my home, still paying the expenses while fighting criminal, ACS and family case ever since. My criminal trial is this week and now at the last minute DA is offering an ACD. My lawyer is making me feel as if I may not get a fair trial and should take the offer. I was told we can beat this and would like to clear my mane leaving no doubt this is true. I have a custody trail coming up and I know these accusations are to ruin my chances for fighting for my 8 year old daughter. There is also my 20 year old son whom I am custodial parent of since 3 from previous relationship, who was kicked out of home for no valid reason. child returned from school 2 months after incident, kicked out couple weeks later for no valid reason. I realize the difficulty with fighting for custody of a little girl in NY. Mother until recently has not worked in 10 years. She has taken me to court in past with false abuse claims whenever some issues came up in the home where I would question her actions and problems she was causing. She has taken child out of country for 6 months without me knowing anything, taken child to various homes to stay even a shelter. I know ACD is not an acceptance of guilt but it does not state without a doubt I am innocent and she is lying. II have other cases predicated on this case. I was told her past behavior will not be looked at here. This will be based on that moment, and even if I try to prove moral presumption, I can have "snapped" at that moment and committed accusations. I was told the DA will try to make something stick (harassment, assault, child endangerment). She is totally manipulating the system, this case and livelihood of my children and I. I have always provided a stable, consistent home for me and my family and never any issues with the law.

My ex husband has filed a motion to modify parenting time.

My ex husband has filed a motion to modify parenting time. In his motion he is alleging child endangerment based on a DUI my current husband received last year with my daughter in the car. My ex husband has known about this DUI since March of last year, but just recently filed for custody because we could not agree on an out-of-state spring break visitation. I have had the majority parenting time for several years, is this different from custody? What is a reasonable out-of-state parenting plan? My ex is requesting that she travel from Colorado to Arizona every MLK day weekend, every presidents day weekend, every spring break, all summer (minus 3 days prior and one week towards the end), a 3 day weekend in April and October, Every Thanksgiving, Labor day weekend and he wants half her winter break every year. I'm loosing sleep over the endangerment allegations and I cannot afford an attorney. I also have a question about if he has a witness for the case if I will receive notice prior to the hearing or will he be able to bring anyone into court on the day of the hearing and I won't have time to prepare?JA: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: Jefferson County Colorado and he filed form Maricopa County in Arizona. All proceedings will happen in Jefferson County COJA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: I've spoken with several lawyers.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: There are some other details but it's a lot to type.
