Q: 

How can i get custody of my baby?

A:  Call the abuse and neglect hot line in your state and report the drug use. They may or they may not get involved---depending. I''ve seen it go both ways. Let them know you are the father. If you haven''t been declared the father then that will have to be done. GO to your local state child and family services and ask to speak to an investigator or placement worker---tell her everything you know---and I''m assuming your record is spotless--no criminal record that is. They will do a background check on you too. But talk to these people --since it is a baby it should make a difference. Good luck Sure is. Yuo just need to contact your local health and welfare office and let them know what''s going on. They can point you in the right direction. YES, it sure is. GOOD LUCK Your child deserves to...

Q: 

How does one go about spanking their wife for cheating on them?

A:  Many people will tell you that the point of spanking is to bring pain and suffering to the spankee. While it is painful, that is NOT the point of the spanking. The point of the spanking is humiliation. The one being spanked must feel the shame and humiliation as part of the punishment, and as a beginning to the restoration of the relationship. I have a black skirt that I have to wear for my punishment spankings. When it is time, I have to remove my blouse and bra. It''s quite humiliating, standing before him and knowing that I''m about to be spanked. If it''s a relatively minor thing for which I''m being punished, I am still allowed the comfort of going over his lap while he sits in a chair. If its a more serious offense, then I am made to bend over the back of a chair for my spanking....

Q: 

How does one Receive Money From Overseas?

A:  That depends. Various countries have different treaties with the United States. Some are grouped into a class and others are individual. Some countries require your presence at some point and others are willing to take affidavits or other proof of identity. Your parents will and the local laws determine what has to be done. the first place to turn is a law firm in that country. that can be very frightening for many people because you turn over a lot or your rights to that lawyer. If it is a lot of money you are talking about you may want to travel just to be sure things are going along properly, a court over seas may let the fiduciary (the person in charge of getting the estate settled) to...

Q: 

How do i get out of paying my ticket?

A:  laughter every day is right. Especially about the quota (hearing that makes me crazy). I just wanted to add that it is never your word against the cop''s. Police officers are granted extra consideration by law. So it works in reverse of normal proceedings where the plaintiff would have to prove that you did something. Instead you have to prove that you haven''t done whatever. Plead not guilty, set a trial, defend at that trial and get acquitted. If you intend to do so, I suggest that you first read ORS 811.265. Not just the title, but every word of the statute. Fashion your defense around that. You seem to be asking how to successfully defend against an accusation of a crime, to get an acquittal every time, If you figure it out, go to law...

Q: 

How does one value investments?

A:  You can value investments in all sorts of ways. You can get an appraisal, compare to similar investments, or create a valuation based on accounting measures. But if you mean the market approach, you are suggesting the trading value in current markets of a particular investment. ''What can I buy or sell this for today?'' That changes constantly and is based on who wants to buy at any given moment and who wants to sell at any given moment. The simple answer is that the highest price any buyer will pay to the seller willing to take the lowest price among sellers will be the combination that will result in a sale. That is the market value that has been established for that particular item at that particular moment....

Q: 

What to wear on a court date?

A:  Wear what you would in church. You want to show respect for the court, so you don''t want to dress like you''re just hanging out with friends. Nothing too casual, nothing too sexy...imagine that you were going to a job interview...something like that. Some courts publish rules about what they consider inappropriate dress...things like shorts, halter tops, flip flops, etc. If your court does, you can use that as a guide. You can also call the court and ask, they''ll be glad to make suggestions. It goes easier for them when everybody is dressed properly and the judge doesn''t have to chew anyone out. Consequences for a first fight...may depend...

Q: 

What happens if a defendant misses a court date after they have gotten a bail bond?

A:  Once a defendant misses court, a Forfeiture Hearing is set for the Defendant and Bonding Co. Defendant''s should attend those hearings so that their reason for missing court can be explained to the Judge. Depending on the situation, the Defendant will have the Bench Warrant cancelled, may receive a fine for failing to appear, have a new court date issued or depending on the Defendant''s history could be rearrested in court and a new or additional bond set....

Q: 

How does one decide if a lawyer should be obtained to represent them in court?

A:  Its up to you to decide whether you need an attorney. Of course its best if you have one. You will be assigned a lawyer by the court if you committed a crime and could face jail time. If your case is not criminal, then it depends on the nature of the case if you need representation. There are several lawyers who do not charge you a consulting fee. Talk to as many of them as you can on the phone and find out their fees. Depnding on the issue, you may be able to get free consulation. Usually self-representation is risky, but it is fine if you are in small claims court or you can get advice without full representation. But a great deal depends on what is at stake! You did not say if this...

Q: 

How does one go about getting a restraining order against an ex?

A:  The first question is what you are trying to restrain. Generally speaking, the order one needs to keep an ex away is called Personal Protection Order (or a PPO). The court does not give these without specific events or threats. Your email is from Florida but your tag is as to Franklin, Michigan.
