Our church group arranges trips for our members, ( and sometime) guests): mostly day trips in the Houston area and infrequent overnight trips. We have been advised by church officials that liability waivers are required for each trip. Is it your opinion that a general waiver for all trips would suffice? We usually contract with the same reliable bus company for all trips.

State: is there a law the covers making false allegations in

Washington State: is there a law the covers making false allegations in writing to CPS? Is it possible to get an in-redacted copy of the written statement from CPS? My daughter just had a baby and CPS showed up at the hospital claiming that they had received a lengthy statement about her alleging mental illness and drug abuse. CPS forced to investigate even though allegations are false. The source is most likely a woman (a grandmother) wanting to prevent my daughter's fianceé from having unsupervised visits with his 18 mo daughter from a previous relationship. Since the woman has inadequate grounds against my daughter's fianceé, she has been attacking my daughter as crazy and therefore unfit to be around her granddaughter. Her false statements have triggered this CPS investigation. My daughter should be able to defend herself, but the woman's mistake, yet to be realized, was messing with my family - especially me. It is now affecting our lives and I want to find substantial resources in the law to stop this destructive attack through making false statements to a government agency. Suggestions?

I live in Montana. I had custody of two children, my ex-wife

I live in Montana. I had custody of two children, my ex-wife moved out of state with her then boyfriend. She never paid child support. The state took their income tax refund of $4,780.53 in 2003. They filed for injured spouse because she has never worked since leaving the state. The state then attempted to regain the money back from me. The state sent me a promissory note on May 30, 2006, which I never signed or sent back. I had a telephone hearing with the ex and a person from the child support enforcement. I told them that I did not want anything from my ex and I was told that if the state took the money, the state needed to refund the money to the ex. I have had the state keep several of my tax returns and I have also paid them around $2840.. I had not heard from the state since 2006, because during the hearing, I was told that it was all over. In 2014, the state kept my tax return to pay the money back. I was told by the state that it took them 10 years to have their system updated which is supposedly why I haven't heard anymore from them. I am wondering if there is a time limit on this type of action from the state or not.JA: Because family law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: MontanaJA: Have you talked to a laywer yet?Customer: NoJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: No, only that I was making payments back to the state up until the time of the hearing.
