If if someone has a restraining order on me but we still was texting and hanging out in my am I in violation

My ex put a restraining order on me but she contact me first told me that she did do it days go by we are talking and hanging out and in violation an is her restraining order revoked

Justin’s Answer

If the restraining order is still valid, then yes, you are in violation. Even if she contacts you first. She cannot undo or turn off the judge’s order. In fact, I frequently see this situation where one partner gets a protective order then appears to make up in order to trap the other person. Stop talking to her.

I agree with Mr. Hardin: wait and see is often the best approach. However, I will add that you should stop posting the specific facts of your case to public forums and do NOT contact this person.

How can I get a divorce from a man who won’t sign the papers from my attorney so we can precede with the divorce ?

  

How can I get a divorce from a man who won’t sign the papers from my attorney so we can precede with the divorce ?

My hopefully soon ex husband has had the papers for a year and half. He keeps refusing to go to the embassy or consulate in Honduras to get the papers notorized. I only communicate with him by email because he has stalked my children (not his), my family, and me online. He will say I will sign them but then never does. He is holding me hostage in an unwanted marriage. And he took me for all my money and I can’t afford to pay an attorney $2500. I’m disabled and I’m not receiving any help from my kids father, so I’m very limited on my income.

Justin’s Answer

If he has been served or is avoiding service, you can go to a contested hearing and get a default judgment. This is a difficult situation, however, so you will probably need an attorney to help you.

Is my husband allowed to buy me drinks?

He is 23 and I’m 19. I live in Missouri and can’t find anything on it.

Justin’s Answer

No he cannot. However, oddly enough, Missouri allows your parents to give you small amounts of alcohol with meals, celebrations, or religious services.

Yes you need an attorney. A felony DWS charge is very serious. However, an attorney can help you get your license reinstated and try to keep you out of jail.

I have a tenant I need to evict. There is no lease, she pays by the month to live in her RV here. Do I need to go to court. ?

  

I have a tenant I need to evict. There is no lease, she pays by the month to live in her RV here. Do I need to go to court. ?

I am told given there is no lease and this is a RV park I do not need to go to court. That I can give her a 5 day eviction notice and then call the police if she does not leave. Although there is no lease she has been paying by the month for 8 months now. I’m told by the sheriffs office it is a civil matter and I will have to go to court and I’m told by the courthouse its an RV park so I do not need to go to court. I’m not sure what to do?

Justin’s Answer

There is no right to self help in Missouri, even for RV parks. You do have to go through with the eviction procedure. If the court is not letting you file for eviction, you may have to contact an attorney for help.
