Recent Parental Abduction questions

Hi, Me and my wife are permanent resident in the US. My wife

Hi,Me and my wife are permanent resident in the US. My wife works from home for a US based software company. She has taken advantage of this situation and has fled to India with my kids and is not planning to return. She is taking advantage of her work from home status as she is currently working from India and still on US payroll. There is no pressure on her to come back to the US. I understand that I can report her for parental abduction of children but before I do that I wanted to know the following:1. Is it legal on part of her employer to allow her to do that, especially when she is using this to commit a criminal offence?2. IS there a way where I can stop her from working from India. Should I send a letter to her HR or call them to explain the situation and inform them that she is committing an offence and her company is facilitating it by allowing her to work from a foreign country.3. Any other suggestion, which would help me. I am trying not to put criminal charges of child abduction on her. If she is not allowed to work from India, she will be compelled to return back

I live in Illinois. My daughter who is 2.5 years old and was born and lived in Illinois was abducted by my Russian wife and mother-in-law to a city in Russia. I now have full physical and legal custody and a court order requiring law enforcement to aid in effectuating the order. Many agencies are already involved, but I cannot get the State's Attorney at felony review to tell me what is required to get an Illinois arrest warrant, so that a warrant can be issued on the federal and later INTERPOL level.What is the definition of parental kidnapping (aggravated and otherwise) in Illinois and what do i need to prove in order to get an Illinois arrest warrant issued?

This may be a question about splitting hairs, but I would

This may be a question about splitting hairs, but I would appreciate a thorough response. Harassment is a crime in the state of Maryland. So is stalking. A peace order (restraining order in other states) can be issued to a person accused of stalking or harassing someone. When a peace order is issued, the respondent is ordered to refrain from activities such as harassment and stalking. As it is a civil procedure, having a peace order issued is not the same as a criminal conviction, such as being convicted of harassment or stalking. In the interest of defining a truthful description of a person who was under a peace order, is it accurate to define that person as an "adjudicated stalker and/or harasser" or is that a false statement since the respondent was never convicted or "adjudicated" for the crimes of stalking or harassment. Thanks.

I received a call this morning from my car insurance

I received a call this morning from my car insurance provided that I was involved in an accident yesterday, that I did not recall. I called my ex husband thinking it was him, he thought it was me. After discussing with the insurance company in more detail I realized that yes I was in a situation where I could have hit a vehicle however I didn't believe that I did because I didn't feel any impact. I went ahead and had the insurance company view my vehicle today for damage and in looking myself I did see some very small damage, the claims adjuster said about $106. At this point I'm just concerned about a hit and run charge, I certainly didn't mean to hit anyone and didn't think that I did or I would have stopped and left a note. I'm just not sure if I need to call the police department to let them know I'm cooperating or what my next steps should be really be. So I'm just trying to find some information.JA: Since laws vary from place to place, what state is this in? And when did this happen?Customer: This happened in Omaha NEJA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: Not yet I wasn't sure if it was necessary at this point, as I haven't seen the police report and I haven't been contacted directly by the police.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I don't think so.

Summons for CLASS U MISDEMEANOR by nextdoor neighbor

Summons for CLASS U MISDEMEANOR by nextdoor neighbor (plaintant) for dogs running at large getting on her property.We are within voice command distance...but sometimes they do get on her property.Should I offer a plea of "no contest" or guilty..?...all dogs are under 16 lbs. (one did bite her on her leg when she was on OUR FRONT PORCH & reached out to me to hand me cash for mowing HER yard. "She made the statement that she was just surprised, & that particular dog had always been her favorite & that it must have thought it was just protecting me.."There was no cut but bruising & swelling, so she went to emergency room....She filed a bite report @ emergency room..as required. I offered to give her a check to TAKE with her, but she refused. Also, refused & Informed me later when I offered payment again that her insurance paid for the 2 visits she had made.. 《second one because she couldn't take the antibotics they put her on.》Dog was confined in our home as required by law for 10 days & ckd twice by official & cleared.)To my knowledge, there has been NO property damage.THANK YOU!
