About 5-6 years ago, I received a misdemeanor disorderly

About 5-6 years ago, I received a misdemeanor disorderly persons charge in the state of NJ.Because I had worked as a teachers aid with severely disabled children a few years before this charge, the NJ Dept. of Education was alerted and I received a letter in the mail letting me know that I would not be able to teach in any capacity in the state.Now fast forward to today, I have had my record completely expunged and I am a productive citizen and full time honors student finishing my two undergraduate degrees in Philosophy and Infromatics.I also have an anxiety disorder but am not disabled, receiving public assistance or welfare. I hope to go on to law school, but worry that my past and my anxiety disorder could hurt my chances.With the exception of working in law enforcement, government or prisons from what I took away from my expungement documents, I do not believe that I would have to disclose my past offense to law school or the bar. Is this so?Also because of the Americans with disability's act and my HEPA rights do I really have to disclose my anxiety disorder to anyone (The bar, law school or employers) if they ask for that information?I have checked myself into a hospital two times when I was neither a risk to myself or others for diagnostic and medication purposes. I have never been held against my will on any sort of mental health hold and paid out of pocket for the two times I felt it was in my best interest for some more intense care to sort out medication issues.I have only ever had that one incident with the police.Currently I live in FL but I am hoping to move to NY for law school and would like to live in NJ again at some point and perhaps practice law there as-well as in NY.Some guidance and answers to my questions would be greatly appreciated.

A woman I had been dating had come to my home uninvited and

A woman I had been dating had come to my home uninvited and unknowing to me, as I was returning from out of town. Prior to her showing up to my house, I informed her that I was not at home and that she should not come to my place, because she was not invited. So, as I was pulling into my garage, she drove up, jumped out of her car and ran into my home via the garage entrance. I confronted her, once I got into my home, demanding that she leave immediately and she refused repeatedly. An argument occurred and I subsequently use physical force to remove her from my house.JA: In what state did this occur?Customer: I was subsequently charged with simple assault by the state of Virginia.JA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: No..JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I have no prior criminal record. I'm a military service member. The woman continues to harass me constantly via text messages, social media and voice mails. Prior to that incident, she'd constantly ignored my requests for her not to come to my home unannounced and uninvited....

I just found out that I have a criminal record entry of a penal code I was never convicted of; but have a conviction of. They entered the wrong conviction from 30 years ago; and my attorney back then applied for an expungement without my knowledge as I have come to find out as well. Is there any statute for this that it must be corrected? Can I sue? It must be removed because that was never introduced or even on the official report. Thanks.

My husband and i got into a fight last night. Things got out

My husband and i got into a fight last night. Things got out of hand, he was drunk. he was saying hurtful things so i started a video on my phone (for his self-evaluation the next day) he tried to get the phone out of my hands and we wrestled for a brief moment. After that he got mad and threw some things around the living room and the bedroom. The neighbors called the police and when they arrived they arrested him with a second degree assault. He got through the district court house and now he is out but he is not allowed to see me. On monday he has a pre-trial court date. My question is if i use my marital privilege which i am going to, should he plead not guilty? He has a clean criminal record and that had never happened before. Plus i was the one that started everything by being unhappy with him early in the day and i said hurtful things to him that pushed him towards drinking and the rest of the night.JA: Since laws vary from place to place, what state is this in? And when did this happen?Customer: It is Maryland, last nightJA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: NoJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: no
