Why it is a Good Idea to Avoid Probate in Maryland
Legal Answers
56 Questions Answered
Q. Should I start the process of emancipation?
A: Emancipation is a very personal thing and should not be taken lightly. There are certain barriers to emancipation such as the need to have a prior child custody case. If you are being abused and/or neglected and you are a minor, it is a good idea to reach out to your local Department of Social Services to seek their assistance with resolving your situation.
Q. Can I use audio recordings in a case against someone?
A: Yes, Maryland is a two-party consent state and as a result, both parties must consent to the recording. However, in the case of a voicemail, there is no reasonable expectation of privacy and that can be used in court since it is not an illegal recording.
Q. Looking at going to a Tech school to get certified so I can get a better job, what happens with my child support?
A: In such a situation, your child support may be recalculated. However, the other party or you would need to initiate a modification.
