Can a person scan in a DD214 and crop out lines 23-30 and

Can a person scan in a DD214 and crop out lines 23-30 and move the form # ***** up to create the illusion that section 22 was the last section on the document? This was done for the purpose of present to criminal court as proof of Honorable Discharge for sentencing purposes (to get a lighter sentence). The document showed nothing about his discharge or the domestic violence as the reason because he cropped that part out. The sentencing followed his felony conviction for Domestic Violence Criminal Threatening with a Deadly Weapon and Misdemeanor of Misuse of a firearm. He threatened his wife and young children with a loaded weapon and did receive a lighter sentence based upon his Honorable service and discharge. He did get an Honorable Discharge. He lost all VA Benefits.

My husband and I are going through a divorce. We have been

Hello, my husband and I are going through a divorce. We have been married since Sept 2009 and together since 2001 with five years living together prior to marriage. He's claiming he will take his "pre-marital annuity funds" of 90k in entirety. We purchased our home over a year after marriage in 2010. Would it not be 50/50? this is new York. It's a brutal battle and includes domestic violence but I would leave that out of the case and just want to cut ties at a 50/50 standpoint at this point. I'm tired of it all but do not want to lose out here. he has a lawyer and I opt out as we are not millionaires. Enough is enough. Any feedback for me? Thank you kindly - Jolea

Can you please help, my spouse and I were arguing he kind of

Hi can you please help, my spouse and I were arguing he kind of pushed me back and I held on to his shirt and accidentally ripped his shirt and scratched. And since he wouldn't let me walk away somebody called the cops and they took him to jail. I was asked if I wanted to press charges and I said no. I even stated I didn't want him going to jail that I just wanted to be left alone. But they took him anyways. I was told CSI would want to meet with me and I said OK but I did not show up where they wanted to me with me. Can I get in trouble? Also he called me from jail and want me to go pick up his property, will they release it to me? So now he has 3 charges PC 273.5 FelonyCORPORAL INJURY - SPOUSE OR COHABITANTPC 13700 FelonyDOMESTIC VIOLENCE DEFINITIONPC 1203.2 FelonyVIOLATED TERMS OF PROBATION. I believe the probation part will not be removed. But what about others since I am not willing to press charges? And can I get in trouble for still wanting to try and have a life with him? Please help

I need to install nanny cams in my house and carry an audio

I need to install nanny cams in my house and carry an audio recorder for the purpose of protecting myself from false domestic violence allegations while I share my home with my wife during our divorce. I would like to tell her that I will be using recording devices because it might deter her if she knows I'm protecting myself. My question is, by notifying her, does that give her the opportunity to refuse to be recorded? Can one party to a conversation refuse to be recorded under these circumstances?
