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.

I have severe pain in my left hip and leg due to a recent

I have severe pain in my left hip and leg due to a recent injury.I have been taking oxycodone 10mg prn 6 hours from pain management doctor for the last year although the dose was less at the start.My left Ileg was injured and operated on a few years ago.,I usually took ibrrpohen 800mg between the doses of oxycodone for pain.I was diagnosed with a stomach ulcer a few months ago and told by my gastroenterologist to stop the ibuprofen,I did for the last 2 months but reinjured it again a few weeks ago and in severe pain at times.I called the gastroenteroigistdoctors office yesterday and stated I wanted to know if I could take a fewe aleves {naproxen] between the doses of oxycodone.I left a few voicemails for the niurse stating I was on oxycodone -6 and didn't want any narcotics.I spoke with her and she said the doctor didn't want me to take the aleve because of my large ulcer and said he would order 50 mg tramado every4 hours.she said she would call Walmart pharmacy and call me back.She called back and said that they said it was agianest the law to prescribe narcotic for me since I was on a pain contract and that I would have to see my pain contract doctor.I did notify them I was on oxycodone but didtnt think about the pain contract because I thought they already knew I was on one.I didn't know that I coulnt receive any other meds from another doctor.I have never received any narcotics for another doctor except pain meds post op this year and I was assuming that it was okay as long as they knoew about the other oxycodone I used.I was not aware of the law agianest thisShe stated that the doctor didn't want me to take the aleve and wanted me to take tramadol every 4 hours 50mgShe stated she would call Walmart pharmacy and call me back.She called me back and said they said it was against the law to percribe me any pain meds since I was on a pain management contract.She said that I would have to see my pain management doctor to have him prescribe me painmmeds..They did not prescribe me any narcotics and I even asked the nurse to please make a note to say that I was only looking for a couple aleves which was correct because I had left 2 voicemails on her machine stating I didn't want any more narcotics just a fewextra naproxens a day if I could but when they stated I couldn't taken the naproxen I agreed to the tramadol but didn't think I was breaking a law as long as the doctor was told about the other oxycodone I was on.I am scared now wondering if I could be charged with doctor shopping and I didn't think I was doing wrong.If they didn't fill the prescription could I possibly just of been told what I needed to do or could I still be in trouble for this.I was not thinking I was doing wrong and even though I had a pain contract I had received pain meds from another doctor after the surgery so I was thinking that as long as the other doctor knew of the other med I was on that I was okay.I now realize that I have made a mistake by almost reiving another pain med from another doctor and I was wondering what could possibly happen.I know I was not drug seeking just trying to see if I could take a few naproxens a day if needed and when they said I couldn't I aggred to the tramadol and didn't realize I couldn't do that with my pain contract.I am wondering could I be charged with something for this.I was not aware that I coulnt do this.What is the charges for a first offence in Arkansas.I defintly didn't receive any narcotics from another doctor sinc Walmart pharmacy told them they couldn't percribe me any meds but since I didn't tell them about the pain contract because I thought they already knew since I was on the oxycodone what could happen to me.I didn't know I was supposed to tell them of the pain contract. and assume the doctor alrady knew I was going to a pain mangenment doctor

We are going thru divorce. My ex and me cant agree on

We are going thru divorce. My ex and me cant agree on custody battle. Our son has autism.He called police to check on me, threatened to call Child Protective Services and reported me to the government agency IHSS where I receive social security payments for my son. These payments are my only income :(I have email from my ex showing that he requested that we settle for insignificant amount, otherwise he is going to call IHSS and create issues. I believe it is blackmailing.Ex said that our son doesn't have autism and doesn't need therapy and services, he also claimed that I lied on time sheets that I fill out every week because our son was spending a few days per week at daycare and with him. He also said that now we have 50% custody and child spends 1 week with me and 1 week with his dad so I should get paid for less hours.I believe I didn't violate anything because I was still watching our son 50 hours per week but I feel very uncomfortable. I never had any trouble with the law before. Now they are going to conduct investigation and he said District Attorney will be involved :(What could be possible outcome of this situation?What is the penalty for violations like this?I have pictures of my ex masturbating next to our child"s bed and video showing he left our child all by himself late at night and went to the gym. Would it be too suspicious if I show it to police? I believe these are serious criminal violations.Ex also had domestic violence, drug abuse and has mental issues- anxiety and depression for which he is taking daily medication. Will investigators going to take this into consideration?
