Best advice I can give you is to avoid legal problems.
If you yourself embroiled in such difficulty, seek competent, professional council - call an attorney, sooner rather than later. Make sure that you follow his instructions as you will be paying for that advice, in advance in many cases.
Insofar as getting such advice here on OCDO, please note the disclaimer:
The law is always in a state of flux and even lawyers and judges get it wrong from time to time. All advice posted on this forum should be considered nothing more than hearsay. Even if a poster identifies themselves as an attorney, law enforcement official or expert in a given field, there is no way to verify that fact or that they are correct. Therefore, any and all advice you glean from this forum should be independently verified! NOTHING CONTAINED HEREIN SHOULD BE CONSIDERED LEGAL ADVICE!
While you are here please read all of the rules.
One more thought to share, remember that in every case there are two attorneys; the winning side and the losing side. Select the right side - there is no "do over."
