Yes, generally. Is this a business?
Do you have allodial title for the land? If you don't know then you don't.
1. you don't own the land, the county does. You only own the structure on the land.
2. Odds are liquor laws don't allow anyone to sell liquor for commercial profit without a license. If you have a license probably gives the county or State authority to enforce that law, implied consent to enter the building.
3. They made need a warrant.
4. Are you open to the public? The police are part of the public.
If this is a private non-profit bar in your home, then you are safe.

Get a lawyer, and work out a legally-binding visitation/custody arrangement. Your ex cannot legally keep you from seeing your children and should be required to make accommodations due to your schedule. However, being one of the custodial parents, he also has the right to not release his children into the care of what is, to him, a complete stranger. He doesn't know your boyfriend, and I completely understand how he would feel uneasy about giving his kids into the care of someone he doesn't know.
With that being said, there is nothing you can do about it without taking it to court, which is why you should be getting yourself a lawyer. Until there is a court-ordered binding visitation/custody agreement, there is nothing you can really go after your ex for. You say that you aren't even divorced yet, so there is nothing, legally, you can do about it, except get a lawyer and go to court over it.
And on another note - you just got out of what you felt was a bad relationship, and not even divorced yet. Rushing into another relationship already is the wrong thing to do. You need time to heal, whether you realize it or not. Your primary focus right now should be you and your kids, not some rebound boyfriend.
What Is Wrongful Death?
Wrongful death is a claim in common law jurisdictions against a person who can be held liable for a death. The claim is brought in a civil action, usually by close relatives, as enumerated by statute. Under common law, a dead person cannot bring a suit, and this created a legal hole in which activities that resulted in a person's injury would result in civil sanction but activities that resulted in a person's death would not.
The standard of proof in the United States is typically preponderance of the evidence as opposed to clear and convincing or beyond a reasonable doubt. In Australia and the United Kingdom, it is 'on the balance of probabilities'. For this reason, it is often easier for a family to seek retribution against someone who kills a family member through tort than a criminal prosecution. It should be noted, however, that the two actions are not mutually exclusive; a person may be prosecuted criminally for causing a person's death (whether in the form of murder, manslaughter, criminally negligent homicide, or some other theory) and that person can also be sued civilly in a wrongful death action (as in the O.J. Simpson cases).
In most, if not all common law jurisdictions, there was no common law right to recover civil damages for the wrongful death of a person. However, many jurisdictions have now enacted statutes to create a right to such recovery. The issue of liability will be determined by the tort law of a given state.
See Lord Campbell's Act for the origin of wrongful death liability.
Conditions for filing wrongful death claim
The death must have been caused, in whole or in part, by the defendant's conduct, even though there was no direct intention to kill the victim. The defendant must have been deemed negligent or strictly liable for the victim's death. Also the deceased has dependent party such as family members who have suffered from emotional and monetary damages as a result of the death.
California Family Law ...Need Help.....?
When You Finalize A Divorse, And On Parent Is Awarded Sole Cusdy Of A Child Because Of An &Quot;Issue&Quot; Not Ideal For Kids, Can The Other Parent Go Back To Court And Get Kids Back? Or Change Supervised Visitation To No Supervision When The Issues Before Are Gone???? This Is A Really Important Question, And I Really Appreciate Whoever Can Answer This.....
Yes. Child custody/visitation/ and support are always modifiable. The fact that your divorce is finalized will not have an impact on the child custody/visitation issues. Also, supervised visit orders can be modified either to have supervised visits or to remove supervised visits. The only thing that is huge barrier is if there is a criminal protective order in place. If that is the case you will also have to go the criminal court to try and modify the protective order.
To change custody/visitation: Go to Judicial Council Forms of California and you can obtain all of the forms you need to start the process. Check out form 300 (It is not the only form you need but check it out because it is fairly straightforward. You will also need 310, 311, 341D (Possibly), UCCJEA 105, and 305 (For emergency orders), and 320 (Could be more but these are the usually suspects to start a change of custody/visitation order).
You will have to fill them out but there are a lot of self-help centers in California and legal aid clinics that can help you. WARNING: Don't take advice from these places. They just help you fill out the forms and it is illegal for them to give advice (Unlike myself because I am a licensed lawyer in California).
Many of the courts won't give you the forms anymore or they will sell them but you can get them for free at Judicial Council Forms of California (Just Google it and check out the "Browse All Forms" link).
Once you fill the forms out you will need to file them with the clerk. The clerk will give you a date. Make sure you take extra copies to the clerk because the clerk is going to take the original for the court's file. You should make several copies and remember at least one copy is the copy you will serve on the other side.
After you serve the completed forms (check out "proof of personal service form [I can't remember the form number]) you must return to the clerk and file the proof of service form with the court (You have to go to the clerk at least twice). Make sure you serve the other side at least 16 days before the court hearing date. Hint: Be super nice to clerks and your life gets a lot easier when you have simple questions to ask about how to correct any mistakes on the forms.
If you don't have a lot of cash then fill out the fee waiver forms (Also at Judicial Council Forms of Cal). Fill out FW1, FW2, & FW3.(you won't need all of them depending on your circumstance, such as if you have an attorney or expect to get one, but it's better to have them all then to get to the clerk's office and be turned down for not having one).
Some courts also have local forms that must be completed such as a CII form (A criminal background form to make sure that the courts are not about to give a child to a child molester or some other horrible thing).
Check your local courthouse online and browse the family law section. There is usually at least some information.
If you have an attorney he or she will do all of this for you but they are expensive. Many attorneys in California give fee consultations and I would suggest you get a couple of consultations from different attorneys. If the attorney is a "certified specialist" then they are going to be very expensive but they are also very good. I do highly recommend speaking with an attorney before you make any decision. Sometimes people put on a case only to hurt their own position and an attorney would have seen it coming from a mile away.
Finally, there are a lot of "do it yourself" books at any Barnes&Noble or Amazon books. Anything by Nolo Press is great. Make sure your book is California specific and only resort to this if you cannot afford to hire an attorney.
Good Luck! If you like this answer I would appreciate a vote for it.
Best Law School Options?
I Am Currently On Track To Graduate With A Ba In Accounting(Honors). From There I Plan To Attend Law School.
I Was Thinking Of Trying To Get Into Schools Like Harvard, But Worry About Cost. Does The Law School I Choose Make A Huge Difference In Terms Of Career?
With Cost In Mind Would There Be A Huge Difference Between A State University School Of Law As Opposed To An Ivy League School Like Harvard.
I graduated from Harvard Law School. When I was coming through, everyone who wanted to work in a large law firm paying top wages (which now would be $160,000/year) had multiple job offers from them. I was in the lower 40% of the class but I had job offers from those types of firms all around the country. It's still the same today, despite a much worse job market. So an HLS degree is a ticket to high-paying jobs, and even if you are terrible as a lawyer, you can bounce around from one high-paying job to others for at least around 10 years, and easily repay any law school debt. (Some people didn't want this, and they just found jobs in public interest organizations or the like, and others ended up clerking for the Supreme Court or other prestigious courts.)
Columbia U. has the best job record of any law school in the country since it's in a legal gold mine, NYC, and it's just easier for more firms to come to campus to offer jobs.
No state school even comes close to that employment track record. UVA, Berkeley and Michigan are the only state schools that have top law schools, and even significant portions of their classes don't get jobs.
Look at http://www.lstscorereports.com/national/ for the full numbers on jobs, costs, etc.
Finally, while where you go to law school matters less as the time out of law school grows (and your client base and skills matter more), going to Harvard or the like gives you a significant starting advantage in your career (and thus a significant starting advantage in growing your bank account).
But, please--comparing a typical state school to Harvard?

Someone Pls Help Me
Well you have the right to disagree with the AG 's office. It is the judge who ultimately decides the proper and legal amount of support owed. I have never heard of an AG doing something this overboard. Do not sign the agreement! Insist upon taking the issue before a judge. If you have already signed it then that is a different story because then you need to get an attorney and try to modify the terms of the court order. You might also try to talk to the caseworker's supervisor.
