  • NY Family Court Do I have the right to appeal a restraining order?

    In New York, pursuant to a Family Court Article 6, Part 3, proceeding (custody), I was issued a temporary restraining order, that subjects me to the threat of imprisonment. I do not believe that I have done anything wrong, nor am I a danger to any...

    Anthony’s Answer

    I mildly disagree. You have a eight to ab adversarial hearing on the document. Even if you consented you can appeal that you were not advised of the effects of the consent. Consent must be knowing and intelligent.

  • CUNY has denied me employment for peace officer position based on the pre-employment background process.

    I plead guilty to dwai offense 1192.1.. 2011 was arrested 2010 i have other minor offenses (violations) 5 to be exact 3 seal and dismissed 2 which open container and fare invasion 02 and 09 am i protected under the consideration factor in article 23a

    Anthony’s Answer

    Yes to an extent. Peace officers are quasi police officers and article 23 section 750 (5) specifically excludes police dept. from the statute.
    Further even if you are eligible given the type of job you are seeking it could be color-ably claimed that these prior convictions could render you ineligible for the job you are seeking

    Anthony’s Answer

    is there a question here? If you are asking if the five prior arrests are stopping them from hiring you, well no one arrest is probably doing that except for maybe the impaired however if being a driver is part of the job and if you will be driving their vehicle you might understand that the overall look is not a good one.
    Can they not hire you? Not necessarily based on your arrests but if the have a similar or better candidate without this arrest record guess who gets the job.

  • Can New Jersey put a hold on my New York license renewal because I'm suspended?

    my New Jersey license was suspended. my New York license is valid I have a car registered and insured and everything. get my privileges back in New Jersey I have to get a breathalyzer machine in my car. can you Jersey stop me from renewing my N...

    Anthony’s Answer

    Yes and no.
    Jersey cannot suspend your NY License but it is supposed to tell NY if your license there is suspended and why. NY would normally suspend your license too. (It may have already happened.)
    1. Hire an attorney to grab the status of your NY License
    2, Have him speak with driver's improvement in Albany to see what you can do in NY to keep your license.
    3. You may have similar restrictions in NY as in NJ but you may not so let the lawyer check into your specific information.

    Anthony’s Answer

    YOu may want to speak to a civil rights attorney. THere may also be discrimination here and if any federal money was involved possible a whistleblower or qui tam case. I think there may be something there even in a right to work state.

  • Is it illegal?

    I was in a custody battle with my ex boyfriend. When a couple days after court was dont he told me that him and his family paid the judge $200 to keep my son from me.. Is that even legal? It was almost 2 years ago but i cant find a lawyer to help ...

    Anthony’s Answer

    No it isn't legal and is very likely untrue, but you can report it to the local DA. More likely you cannot find a lawyer because you have a bad case and no money. In law, you often get what you pay for. If you want the best you need to find a way to afford the best. Legal fees are expensive but a good lawyer is worth his weight in gold.

    Anthony’s Answer

    Get a good criminal defense lawyer for your husband. HE will need one. If he friend takes "the weight" and exonerates your husband the State can but doesn't have to dismiss. That is why I strongly suggest you get a lawyer for your man. HE will need someone aggressive and knowledgeable to let the state know they will not throw your husband under the bus. Act quickly. Good luck.

  • If pregnant can I leave home in idaho?

    Hi, I was wondering if i was pregnant could i leave home in Idaho and move to Washington where the father would be. Would i have this choice? Also is there any way my mother could take me back to california with me being pregnant? Wouldnt the fath...

    Anthony’s Answer

    There is so much missing here. How old are you? Are you old enough to live and support you and your baby? Who is the Father? Is consent an issue here? Who is trying to keep you in Idaho?
    I am going to assume a few facts. 1. you are an unmarried pregnant minor. 2. Your baby's dad is also young although possibly of age. 3. Your parents are divorced and you are in the custody of your father.

    If those assumptions are true, then your parents have control over you until you reach 18 years of age. If your leaving the state endangers the health of the baby then even CPS could stop you. Your baby's father has no say over where you live but he can ask for visitation and that may mean you have to reside within a certain mileage from him but that does not in and of itself dictate that you must live in any particular state.
