Since you're a new member I will just say, don't be discouraged if any attorney's are hesitant to give any free legal advice on a public forum such as this one.
Your best bet would be just go see a local attorney in your area. They may even give you a free consultation, or at least be extremely reasonable with their fee.
You can be much more specific as to the details of your case and would certainly be more familiar with your particular States laws.
Btw... I am not an attorney, but just wanted to let you know not to take it personal as a new member if you don't get a response to this request for legal advice.
But, you could get lucky. Just remember, this is a public forum with total anonymity so I would be hesitant to count on such advice.
