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

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?

I have a friend who should've been placed in a minimum

I have a friend who should've been placed in a minimum security prison, based on her offense and her points, yet the BOP is calling for her placement to be in a low security prison. Can this be challenged?JA: In what state did this occur?Customer: This occurred in the state of Wisconsin.JA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: The attorney says nothing can be done. However, I don't believe a thing this guys says, because he's the same guy who said it was NOT necessary to correct the NUMEROUS errors and falsehoods presented in the PSR...and the incorrect and incriminating information that he left unchallenged in that report is EXACTLY why she got the sentence she did, in the first place!!JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: Just that she is completely innocent and this same attorney counseled her to take a plea, saying it would be the easiest for her and that she wouldn't even serve any time...worst case scenario, he claimed she might get 6 months house arrest.

I'm in California and I recently got a 3 year restraining

I'm in California and I recently got a 3 year restraining order against my neighbor after several instances of threats and harassment. Problem is I'm afraid to call the police on him if I need to. I didn't use the sheriff's department to serve him because previously I used them and he avoided service and continued to harass me. This time I had a friend serve him and he failed to show to the hearing and the judge made the order permanent. I have a feeling if he gets arrested due to the order, he will plead not guilty and try to deny he was ever served. Is there going to be a new trial I will have to attend every time I use the restraining order and he's arrested? And will his lawyer (or public defender or someone else) investigate the person (s) who served him to make sure it was properly served? I had a very hard time finding someone willing to serve him and they will be angry if they ever have to get involved again or go to court to testify regarding this. Thank you!!

I am 19 years old. I got caught stealing a small makeup item

Hello, I am 19 years old. I got caught stealing a small makeup item ($23 Aprx.) at target. I didn't fully walk out of the store, just into the middle of the two main doors and I was confronted. I didn't fight back or anything I was just really embarrassed and ashamed. They took me to the back room and spoke wth me and told me if the item was $20 or less they would let me go, but it was $3 over. So they called the police and the police took me. I bailed myself out for $300 and I got a ticket "franchise fraud" i was wondering what I could do to prevent this from coming up in my records. I still have school and work ahead of me. I'm only 19JA: What confuses you?Customer: I was wondering if I go to court with a lawyer will this help prevent this information from coming up on my recordJA: Since laws vary from place to place, what state is this in? And when did this happen?Customer: Allen park, MIJA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: I spoke with two different ones briefly. One said they would meet me with for $100 and I'll get everything in a document as well and another would charge me $60JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I'm very embarrassed and ashamed about this situation and I would like to fix this and get it off my record as soon as possible
