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?

I am in pro per. I filed a motion for Request For Order

I am in pro per. I filed a motion for Request For Order under MOTION FOR DAMAGES AND SANCTIONS FOR BREACH OF FIDUCIARY DUTY UNDER FAMILY CODE SECTIONS 271. Petitioner was 6 days late in there response to my Request for order which VIOLATED CCP 1005(B), CCP SECTION 1005.5 AND CCP SECTION 2031.060(h) AND 2031.320(b). Part of my request for order was to have the court compel Petitioner to provide discovery that they did not provide. I also requested to recovery attorney fees I paid from my previous attorney who did not receive all the discovery I requested and requested a sanction amount. The judge continued this hearing 3 months later to trial. As a result of this continuation of my RFO to trial I am not going to get the discovery I need for trial, I NOT have the opportunity of recovering attorney fees and sanction prior to trial. My understanding of the law, since the Petitioner did not file there response to my RFO within the time limit this is consider a default. Question-1. Can I file a default judgment for the attorney fees and sanction requested in my RFO? How do I get the discovery I need?

What must I show to satisfy this section because there is NO

What must I show to satisfy this section because there is NO definition in MGJ 208 for MGL 208, Section 48. As used in sections 49 to 55, inclusive, the following words shall, unless the context requires otherwise, have the following meanings:l ''Length of the marriage'', the number of months from the date of service of a complaint or petition for divorce or separate support duly filed in a court of the commonwealth or another court with jurisdiction to terminate the marriage; provided, however, that the court may increase the length of the marriage if there is evidence that the parties' economic marital partnership began during their cohabitation period prior to the marriage."MGL 208, Section 49, c) The court may order alimony for an indefinite length of time for marriages for which the length of the marriage was longer than 20 yearsJA: Because family law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: MassJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: no I am preparing my case There is no definition of economic marital partnership in MGL 208-DivorceJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: was this MGL Section 48, "economic marital partnership' was meant to be interpreted by the letter of the law, then the MGL 208 would ' have1- It would have written a legal definition for economic marital partnership2-MGL 208 could easily have included required specific legal documentation such as signed leases or co-bank accounts for each year that was being contested as economic marital partnership. Example: MGL 208 could have stipulate that a lease be signed by both parties BUT IT DID NOTIs this what is meant by economic marital partnership.the spirit of the economic marital partnership is about two people in this case, a man and a woman who share a common bed, wake up in the morning and have breakfast together. Then both head out to their assigned obligations within this economic marital partnership whether that is one or both go to their job or maybe one is continuing their education and the other carries the work financial burden. At the end of the day they both return to the same address (their home) have dinner relax and go to sleep in the same bed and continue their routine the next day. They pay bills together from one bank account or various financial accounts including a piggy bank. There financial obligations are met as fluid and cooperative economical marital partnership

My financial planner recently recommended a local attorney

Hello,My financial planner recently recommended a local attorney (Attorney A) to prepare a will/trust/medical directives for my husband and me. Though I'm typically cost-conscious, I failed to research how much this would cost; and I also failed to ask the Attorney A how much he would charge for his services. Three weeks ago, my husband and I met with him for over an hour and thoroughly reviewed the questionnaire for our plan. At the end of the meeting, he advised that he would charge $3,000. A few days later, his assistant emailed the contract agreement to my husband. However, in the meantime, my husband contacted the attorney that had recently prepared his mother's estate plan. This attorney advised that he would charge $900 to prepare the estate plans for both my husband and me. Both attorneys are in the Los Angeles area. In doing cursory internet research, it appears that fees for such services typically range between $1200 and $2500. At this point, I'm reluctant to pay $3000 for services that I could find at a more reasonable cost. However, since Attorney A took his time with us, and sent over his contract, I would like to call him back. At this point, I'm wondering how to handle this situation. Is it acceptable for me to say that I've changed my mind and am going for lower cost services?
