Legal Information, I Need Help?
I Had Sex With A Girl And Recorded It Without Her Knowing And I Showed My Friends And Then Deleted It, She Found Out I Showed People And Now She Wants To Press Charges, The Texts I Have Send Her Prove I Showed People And That There Was A Video, What Charges Can She Press On Me Or Can She Not At All? Need Help Asap
it depends on where you are, how old you and she were at the time..
the circumstances.. ( drugs/alcohol.. obviously voluntary by both parties .. did you edit the recording her house or someplace where she expected privacy.. did she specifically ask about anyone finding out.. )
how badly her reputation is damaged, does she still get hassled, and is she changing school / jobs / moving away.. phych help?
You can be charged with all kinds of stuff, but it depends on the jurisidiction, everyplace has some different laws
-- violation of privacy, violation of federal wiretapping
-- sexual offense / lifetime registration as a sex offender
-- statutory rape, sexual assault (just talking or touching can be assault) - the act of sex may not be the crime..
-- unlawful gains did you profit, either in reputation or with tangible 'stuff' when you showed this; did she lose reputation or 'stuff'
-- besmirched reputation / slander - why did you show it, even truth can be a crime if shared for malicious reasons
-- loss of future cohabitation/income .. her social background; was she in an arranged marraige that is now ruined, has her church (or equivalent) made her an outcast,.. does this movie make her less likely to be employed or less likely to marry the man of her intent?
like I said - every place has different laws and variations. If you are in a really strict community, (or if she sues you from a really strict place) .. and if she can get a really good lawyer.. they can charge you with anything except the Lindbergh kidnapping. (old-time reference)
-- teens are getting branded a lifetime sex offenders for just 'sexting'.
- that guy in NJ/Rutgers University taped his room mate having sex. The room mate later committed suicide. The guy who taped it already got expelled from school ( means all student loan money was wasted- still needs to be repaid) , did a month in jail (20 days + good behavior) ; but the criminal prosecutor is still trying to get more charges, and the family wants to sue for wrongful death.
If you have already been contacted by police or legal officials, then don't delete or destroy anything. that can be considered 'spoilation'. If you intentionally destroy evidence you know the authorities ( police, court, any legal official) wants, then the other person can say anything they want and you can't prove you didn't do even worse things. Plus you get more charges for destroying evidence. If nobody from the court/police has spoken to you, it may not be a concern.
If nothing else, you should apologize - genuinely, and do what you can to put a stop to all the gossip and sharing of files/ texts for good.
Remember that 'deleted' files can usually be recovered if enough smarts / resources are spent trying to recover them. Nothing is 100% non-recoverable.. just really-really hard to recover.
Get a lawyer if you haven't already done so, but don't make a big public deal out of it. Once the news hears what you have done, you will be branded as a horrible person.

What Forms Does The Superior Court Clerk Commonly Provide? For Family Law?
Summons? Sheriff'S Entry Of Service? Verification? Acknowledgement Of Service?
Trying To Find Out Which Forms I Need To Bring To The Clerk To File An Entire Petition For Legitimation. I'M In Georgia, But Anything You Know Will Be Appreciated
You will have to ask the clerk's office, read the rules of court, and/or find a manual for filing legitimation petitions in your local library or legal library, if it is open to the public. You can ask a lawyer, of course, but I assume you can't afford one.
There is a form that must be filed with any pleading filed in Superior Court, which you can find at the link below. No other forms appear to be available online. In most courts, the clerk provides you with the summons when the case is filed. Be sure to keep copies of all documents before you file. You will receive a docket number on the summons, and that must be placed on all other documents. The summons will probably have a section for the rest of the service-related information, which are alternative ways to serve the defendant/respondent, except for the verification.

Full Custody Versus Joint Custody?
My Now Ex-Husband Told Me I Couldn'T Have Full Custody Because We Had A Parenting Plan. It Had To Be Listed On The Legal Papers As Joint Custody Subject To The Parenting Plan. Is This True? I Think He May Have Pulled One Over On Me.
Joint custody is the standard now. I was involved in the passage of those laws in the late 80s and early 90s. Currently I promote Bird Nesting.
It’s a form of access or custody where the children stay in the former family residence and it is the parents who rotate in and out separately and on a negotiated schedule.
The children simply live at "home" and the separated or divorced parents take turns living with them there, but never at the same time.
The core element of this arrangement is that each parent maintains a separate residence where they live when it is not their turn at the "bird's nest". When one parent arrives for his/her designated time, the other vacates right away, so as to minimize or eliminate the presence of both at the same time.
At times, bird's nest access can be coupled with specified access with the other parent say, for example, for dinner one night a week.
Sometimes, this form of access or custody will end when the youngest child reaches the age of majority at which time, one parent either buys the other out of their interest, if any, in the former family residence, or it is sold and the proceeds divided pursuant to the matrimonial property regime or separation agreement.
The arrangement can be expensive as it generally requires that three separate residences be maintained, the "nest" and a separate residence for each parent.
The concept is somewhat novel and appears to have as its origin a Virginia case Lamont v Lamont.
In Canada, Greenough v Greenough was a ground-breaker case in that the Court implemented a bird's nest custody order even though it had not been asked for by either party. Justice Quinn, in Greenough stated:
"In Lamont ... the court made a bird’s nest custody arrangement in which the children (aged 3 and 5 years) remained in the home, with the mother staying in the home during the week and the father on the weekend. I think that the benefits of a bird’s nest order are best achieved where the children are able to stay in the matrimonial home, particularly if it has been the only residence that they have known....
"Time and time again I have seen cases (and this is one) where the children are being treated as Frisbees. In general, parents do not seem to appreciate the gross disruption to which children are subjected where one of the parents has frequent access. In this regard, I do not believe there must be evidence that the children are suffering before the court is free to act. To me, it is a matter of common sense. At the risk of falling prey to simplistic generalities, I am of the view that, given a choice, I do not see why anyone would select a living arrangement which involved so much movement from house to house."
I Installed Some Stonework For A Customer On Bank Budget And The Contractor/Owner Overspent The Money And To Make A Long Story Short, I Was Never Paid...
So After Endless Negotiations I Want To Remove All My Material...I Want The Police To Be Present When I Am Removing The Installed Items...
Do I Need To Go To Court Or Do I Need To Call The Police Department In Order To Do This?
Thank You For Your Help
Depends on what state you're in, but regardless, you obviously don't have a license or you would know the procedures for doing work, i.e. filing a mechanics' lien before you even buy your materials.
Now that you have completed the work, if there is any cement or concrete or any manner in which it is attached to the structure OR permanently affixed to the ground, you cannot touch it. In fact, even going onto the property now amounts to a trespass.
It's a civil matter now, the police will tell you so unless they are complete idiots.
you are going to have to sue whoever it is who hired you. since you are not a licensed contractor, you cannot file a lien.
see if you can work out some kind of payment plan and for heaven's sake, in the future make sure that your terms are clearly CIFIA - cash in fist in advance.
