    Dear Anon: You'll have to look at your state's marriage laws, but most states allow you to marry at 18 (without needing parental consent). Keep in mind that if you're still living with your parents and they are helping support you and your baby, you may want to let them know your plans and get them to agree with you out of respect for them. Whether you marry or not, you most likely can change your baby's last name, but need to find out the specific name changing law in your state. Good luck to you.

    I was offered to either pay a fine or enter the diversion program for my misdemeanor. I chose the fine without thinking. Is there a way to change my decision?

    It depends on how long ago you chose to pay the fine and the rules/policies of the court. Try contacting a clerk at the court or the prosecutor's office to find out if you still can enter into the diversion program. Good luck.

    That's very sweet of you, but unfortunately you will not be able to serve your Grandpa's jail time. We suggest he contact a criminal defense attorney in Texas in the county where his case was filed to find out what his options are at this point. Many attorneys offer a free initial consultation and he may be able to consult with one over the phone. Good luck to him. (Check our Resource Directory for more help and resources in your area.

    Me and my two friends(were all 14) were at a school for a Vollyball tournament just walking around and we lost track of time and didn't know the Vollyball tournament was over and we were waking around inside the school and went inside of a class room and I started to play a piano and a Vollyball coach caught us and he took our names and called our school administrator and our Vollyball coaches and drill team instructor and then our parents came to pick us up and I wanted to know what our punishment would be.

    Dear Anon: It's up to the school administrators. Since you've never been in trouble before, they may decide that a verbal warning is enough. However, they could impose consequences like detention or ISS or even refer the matter to the police, however that is not real likely based on your explanation of the circumstances and since the police were not involved when the incident occurred. Remember to pay attention to school hours so that you don't find yourself in this situation again. Good luck.
