    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.

    Anthony’s Answer

    Time generally favors the defendant. What is her rush? As long as the prosecution case isn't getting better and her case isn't getting worse, then time can only help her.

  • Can I press charges

    My ex girlfriend had my facebook password .She deleted all my important photos...Can I have her arrested or is there any legal action I can take ?

    Anthony’s Answer

    I agree with counsel above but if the can be restored I doubt the police or the US Postal inspectors will do anything. Get yourself a back up on the cloud and protect your passwords

    Get a lawyer right away. They have until the statute of limitations is up to indict you and if they do the charge can pend forever. You need a lawyer who can back them off or force them to close the case. Good luck.

  • My husband and I are filing an uncontested divorce soon. How long does it take to have the signed papers from the Courts

    Anthony’s Answer

    IF you both live in queens, then that is the venue. If one of you moves to Westchester or Manhattan then you can venue there but either way it is likely to take anywhere from 3 months to a year for it to become official especially in Queens. A lawyer might help speed it up some but not by much. Good luck.

  • My boyfriend got arrested for armed robbery and can prove he wasn't involved. Would having an attorney at his bail hearing help?

    His hearing is scheduled for 1:30 pm tomorrow. He is confident that he can prove his innocence and that he wasn't in the area at the time of the robbery through surveillance tapes. They arrested him with no evidence other than the cop saying that ...

    Anthony’s Answer

    YES!!!!!! Get him a lawyer asap. In fact his only chance at making bail is if he has a good criminal defense lawyer who can make his case for him. While the court ought to provide free counsel, having hired a great lawyer will help in a case like this. If he does it (or tries to) himself there is next to no chance of a judge not holding him. He needs an advocate Pronto. If you don't know of one, get on AVVO.com and look for one with a very high rating. Armed Robbery is very serious and should only be handled by someone with a great avvo score and a lot of experience handling violent crimes (Armed robbery is always considered a violent crime even if no one was injured). Good luck to you and him and his dad!!
