Q. In the State of Mississippi, if you plead guilty to a misdemeanor, can you file a Motion for the charge to be expunged?
A: Only certain crimes can be expunged. You need to speak with an attorney to see if your crime can be expunged and if it can, they can hadle all of the necessary paperwork to get this done.
Q. My child father hasnt been in her life nor do he want to so how can terminate his parental rights?
A: To terminate his parental rights you would have to file a petition with the Chancery Court where you live. If there is an adoption to take place, he can voluntarily terminate his rights. You need to speak with an attorney and discuss your options.
Q. My child was stopped for shoplifting, a police report was filed, and she may receive a summons to family court.
A: All youth court records and proceedings are sealed in the State of Mississippi. Assuming your child was placed in a juvenile detention center and not an adult detention center, this arrest is not a public record and would therefore not need to be shown on job applications or college applications. You have the right to hire an attorney to represent your child, if you desire. If you do make sure you speak with someone who is familiar with youth court.
Q. My boyf has to pay child and if he doesnt he is in contempt of court. he wants to move what does he have to do
A: Where your boyfriend lives does not affect his child support responsibility. He will still be responsible for child support no matter where he lives. If his moving wll affect him exercising visitation then he will need to seek a modification.
