Custody and Visitation Issues: Is It Normal for the Gal to Spend Significantly More Time with One Party

My question involves a child custody case from the State of: MO. The GAL has met with my ex multiple times as well as ex's significant other and several of ex's family members. The GAL has met with me once and has never contacted any of my friends or family members. Is this normal?

Speeding Tickets: Out of Jurisdiction Police Vehicle

My question involves a traffic ticket from the state of: California I did not receive a ticket or get pulled over but I have a general question regarding an out of jurisdiction police vehicle speeding and flashing their lightbar.

It seemed like they were influencing cars to get out of t...

Supreme Court of Florida weighs in on judges using social media

Here is a recent Daily Record column. My past Daily Record articles can be accessed here. *****   Supreme Court of Florida weighs in on judges using social media Whether judges should use social media has been a contentious issue for some time now. Early on, the consensus seemed to be that it was problematic for judges to do so, but over time that’s changed. So, for example in 2012, Florida’s Fourth District Court of Appeal addressed this issue in Pierre Domville v. State of Florida, No. ...

My question involves a consumer law issue in the State of: New York. I had a very large riding lawn mower repaired at a garage. It needed the carburetor cleaned, and battery replaced.

The business owner noticed that he no longer heard it running and went to investigate. He found an engine oil line had sprung a leak, from what he s...

Ad Week reports:[Payless]... invited groups of influencers to the grand opening of “Palessi” and asked their opinions on the “designer” wares. Party goers, having no idea they were looking at discount staples from the mall scene, said they’d pay hundreds of dollars for the stylish shoes, praising the look, materials and workmanship.

Driver's License Issues: Obtaining a Florida License After Getting a New License

My question involves a driver's license issued by the State of: FL Back in 2005 I stupidly got my license revoked for five years for two DUIs in Florida.

I answered all the questions truthfully on the DL app and was issued a license. I did not have a valid license to turn over to them at that time, o...

"For centuries in China, the phrase 'four generations under one roof' was synonymous with the ideal family."

"In just a few short words, it encapsulated the dreams of fertility, longevity, and harmony to which hundreds of millions of Chinese aspired. Today, however, the country’s traditional, tight-knit family unit is under siege from a combination of declining birth rates, delayed marriages, and domestic migration. No demographic has been harder-hit by these changes than the 240 million Chinese over the age of 60. A recently published report estimates that as of 2016, the number of elderly Chinese liv...
