Lewes Law

There is bad blood between us. We legally tried for temp. custody in Jan 14 when she was sentenced for her 3rd DUI. We lost the case. She then kept the kids from us until this afternoon. Apparently she has fled MD and is in Utah but we think she is fixing to get picked up by the law. She called and allowed me to talk to the kids for the first time since Feb 14. She wants to place the kids with us but wants to get them the minute she is released which is likely to be a while. She receives $1100 SS/mo for the kids because my son died. We want to keep the kids util she is sober and responsibly but not on her terms . Then we got to understand healthcare and school issues.
You need to speak with a local attorney to get this done. You said you've already lost an attempt to get custody, so I...

I am commuting from DE into PA to work. PA requires an interlock device for their residents with a PA license. Delaware does not have this requirement.
If your license is valid then you should be fine to drive as long as you have met all Pennsylvania's requirements. I...
I am going to accept Recovery Court for a DUI in place of some jail time but there are requirements for outpatient treatment, probation officer and court check ins and I live two hours away. There is also a requirement to work full time so it is going to be very difficult finding a full time job with time off during the week so that I can fulfill these other obligations. Any insight would be appreciated.
Probably yes. In Delaware, defendants who accept Probation Before Judgment for DUI cases (which sounds equivalent to...
One of the requirements of probation and being on house arrest is working full time but the other requirements like meeting with the probation officer during the day, driving classes etc conflict with work time. Also, many employers will not hire someone on probation and with a DUI record. Thanks. Any advice would be appreciated.
