    Craig’s Answer

    If the video and photos were taken without your consent you may be able to obtain a order compelling destruction of the items and any duplicates made or otherwise obtain an order requiring your ex to turn them over to you as well as an order prohibiting the publication of such images in any manner.

    You should retain an attorney to protect your rights. If a $500 retainer is too high for this representation call other attorneys who practice criminal defense and see if any any quote you a lower fee. Unfortunately completely false claims as you have stated still require skilled legal representation and the fee quote is usually based on anticipation case preparation time, legal research ( if any is required to support your defense), office and phone consultations, hearing time, any required investigation, and presentation of the case, the evidence, and the witnesses before the Magisterial District Judge.

    You should retain a criminal defense attorney to discuss your options moving forward prior to your hearing. A criminal conviction for an offense such as this can have a negative impact on you and future employment, child custody, or volunteer work for the rest of your life.

    Craig’s Answer

    If he was already sentenced you should contact his attorney and discuss his sentencing. In many cases a defense attorney may not be aware that a particular client has not been transferred from the county prison to a state facility unless and until the client or a family member notifies the attorney.

    If you do not agree to the relocation she will need to serve you with a formal written notice of relocation and you have the opportunity to oppose the relocation. If you oppose the relocation she can request a hearing on the matter and will have to show that the relocation is in the best interest of your minor child.

    Craig’s Answer

    It sounds like a potential wage and hour law claim can be investigated on your behalf if your hours and wages are not properly being accounted for by your employer and/or if you are not being properly compensated for your time or overtime. A lawyer will need to review your pay stubs and work schedule with you to make a determination if any claim exists.
