My boyfriend and I want to get married but there is a current pending case of domestic violence and I am unfortunately the victim in the case. We got into an argument drunk and it escalated between both of us. I want to drop the case and the charges because I believe both sober that we can shape up. There are no charges against me, but two counts of domestic battery on him. Can we still get married at the courthouse?

Thank you time and patience. I was in an auto tag store

Hello. Thank you for your time and patience. I was in an auto tag store today and a woman came in with a form which needed to be notarized. While my clerk was on the phone dealing with MY issue with a third party - I decided to eavesdrop.I heard the other clerk say his notary had expired, but he was planning on notarizing the paperwork with another office worker's stamp and signing with the name of that other notary.Is this legal?? I then asked him "are you allowed to do that?" And he (the clerk) said: I do it all of the time. He said we always sign names of people on titles if they forget and I always use "So and so's" notary seal. We do what we have to do to get the work processed.Now - I am not a goody-two-shoes or a whistle-blower -- but what ELSE goes on there b/c I have done various transactions with that store over the years. Should this be reported to someone??I don't want to be mean - but don't the laws apply to everyone?? (except politicians - LOL - just joking)Thanks again
