Legal Answers
10 Questions Answered

Q. What is a public parking area? Does this include streets
A: Yes, not illegal to possess alcohol, but it cannot be opened.
Q. My son is 16 and his girlfriend is 17. Girlfriends parents want to file a restraining order on my son so they will stop.
A: Yes if there is a valid reason showing he is a danger. I would object because it doesn't serve you are your son well to have a restraining order again you.
Q. My son is 10 and he got a ticket for trespassing and criminal mischief. Does this still in his record till his 18?
A: It is not a conviction but what is called an adjudication. It does not remain on his criminal record once he turns an adult, which is 19 in the State of Nebraska. It can be used to aggravate any future involvement with the law until he becomes an adult.
Q. Truancy law
A: To defend this you will be required show proof that the child be given some sort of medical proof of the PTSD, depression etc. This should be provided to the school to ensure they don't continue to bring you before the court. If that is not successful you should get a lawyer and provide them with medical documentation.
Q. The mother of my 2 kids almost overdosed on sleeping pills they are in state custody .what are my chances at custody
A: Your changes are very good to get temporary custody. Since, you have not seen the kids in 4 years the court would be reluctant to give you full at this time. I would get your lawyer to help with a custody action and takes the steps at this point in time to get a custody order which you can later enforce.
Q. I have an old traffic case in Colorado(12 years ago)I currently reside in Nebraska and just renewed my license valid
A: You Nebraska license is valid but you will still need to take care of the warrant so that they don't request NE revoke it based on the warrant. Contact a lawyer in Colorado to clear up the warrant and you should be good to go.
Q. My Son is 2b adopted by his SF. Got paper 2 sign in mail. Signing away rights is all thats mentioned? Still pay CS?
A: You will have to pay child support until the adoption is completed. You may also have to pay a $65 fee plus pay for service to get the CS stopped. You will continue to owe the back child support. My suggestion is you work with an attorney to help you and negotiate the terms so some of the prior support is resolved in your favor.
Q. In the 12 steps of a dre cop ... the 12th step is done by dre? What if male dre has a female cop give ua to M/suspect?
A: There are many more steps to a DRE than 12. Not likely to be valid test for a female cop to perform a UA on a male.
Q. State gets continuance for cop and I was denied for same hearing?
A: You should have had your attorney contact the court and it would have likely be continued.
