My 17 1/2 yr old nephew and I engaged in some light

My 17 1/2 yr old nephew and I engaged in some light sexual exposer and touching on only one occasion. It was primarily at my urging, we had been drinking a lot , I'm 48. This was an awful one time mistake that I take full responsibility for, I've felt tortured and suicidal ever since (this was a week ago) as far as I can tell, no one but the two of us is aware of this situation. How much trouble am I in and what should I do? Should I talk to him and apologize, ask forgiveness? Talk to my therapist? Will my therapist be required to report me to the police? I do t want to hurt my family, my spouse or our child! Help please!

I am an adult woman, age 22, I live in Indiana. I have fallen

I am an adult woman, age 22, I live in Indiana. I have fallen in love with my father. I recently told him about my feelings and to my suprise, he feels the same, but he will not engage in a relationship for fear of prosecution. Is there any state in the U.S. where we can pursue our relationship without fear of prosecution, if so, is there any Federal law that can overide the state law?

My kids father and I got into a fight and guns were drawn

My kids father and I got into a fight and guns were drawn and he was arrested (The first and only time this has happened). Our kids were in the home at the time so now the Department of Children and Families are involved. I was advised to get a restraining order and file for a custody agreement within the courts. I did but the restraining order was dropped and I do not want to press charges, I just want counseling and mediation for my family. He has been a great dad to the kids never harming them but our relationship was not a good one due to constant arguing NOT physical abuse. We have had physical altercations before but it was more pushing one another. When the DCF worker came to my home she implemented a safety plan which expires tomorrow and wants me to move out of my home. She also told me to not drop the restraining order and the charges or else they would take my children away, which is crazy. I have always been a great mother, a active member in society, volunteer and work 2 jobs to provide for my children and don't want to lose them but I also dont want to press charges or keep a restraining order in place just to please DCF if it will hurt my children and our family. We lived together but he can not return to the home due to the no contact order with the domestic violence charges pending but I did advise the state prosecutor and the public defender I do not want to press charges I just want this situation mediated and counseling for us all. The state says they decide whether to move forward or not and that could posssibly have my kids testify in court. THEY ARE 5 YRS OLD btw which I believe is a scare tactic. I dont know what to do or what I can do, but I don't want my children taken away but I dont want to be pressured or forced to incriminate their dad or myself. What can I do now, I need some legal advice?

I am going through an acrimonious divorce at this time and

I am going through an acrimonious divorce at this time and just got legal and physical custody of my 15-year-old daughter. There has been infidelity as well as domestic violence on the part of my husband and he is a hopeless alcoholic, as he has failed the urine test miserably several times.In October I have a hearing for spousal support and I am not looking forward to it, mainly because my husband has not had a real job in over 10 years and just refuses to get one, even though he is talented and not disabled in any way. However, he is demanding spousal support and possibly child support as well as reimbursement of all court-related expenses. This is outrageous, as I work 7 days a week just to make ends meet and I am self-employed, so this is not fair to me.Any ideas? Is there any way that he can be forced to get a job? Even the judge mentioned yesterday that he should get a job but I know he won't because he wants me to support him so that he does not have to work. Please advise.
