    You have to be very very careful how you respond to their questions. Having an attorney who has dealt with these situations before and who can guide you through this would be a very good idea

  • Do you need an attorney to file a 8-505 for you?

    My husband is incarcerated on an armed robbery charge with a 55 yr sentence. He's been in for 12 years and he's looking for a 12-18 month program.

    It can be filed by anyone, but if you want a realistic chance of prevailing yes you should have an attorney, otherwise you are likely wasting your time

  • How do I get false charges dropped when I am the true victim. How do I make sure justice is served when someone is lying on me?

    Jeffrey’s Answer

    You need an attorney for both the PO and the criminal charge. This charge carries a max penalty of ten years in jail so you have to take it seriously. Sounds like the case should be hard to prove, but since it will mostly be her word against yours you need to be careful. If she convinces the prosecutor she is the victim and you in fact were the aggressor they will try very hard to spin the facts into getting you into trouble for this. Best to have someone experienced on your side

    Jeffrey’s Answer

    If you didn't get cited at the scene you likely won't be charged. If you do receive any contact from anyone about this do not say anything and consult an attorney immediately for instructions

  • What does the court usually order in your typical divorce case?

    I know every case is different but in most cases with children involved what does the court typically rule in favor of? In other words is it more common for a judge to rule that the marital home be sold or to give one party use and possession?

    Jeffrey’s Answer

    You need to sit down with one of us to get a full answer with all the relevant facts taken into account, but generally if there are small kids and they and the custodial parent have lived in the marital home for a period of years it is common that the custodial parent would get a use and possession order

  • Does the fact that I work a seasonal (9 month) job factor into the total child support equation?

    I am a father of a 2 year old son he lives with his mom and his moms mom. So she apparently makes $300 a month? And pays $200 a month for health care for him. I work a seasonal job from Mar-Nov I get paid $14/hr($21/hr OT). I work anywhere from 32...

    Jeffrey’s Answer

    Of course. They will calculate based on your annual income. Be careful though because if you are not working for three months, the court could impute income to you, essentially saying you can work those three months too but are choosing not to (even if thats some other low paying temp job). Having help can really optimize the outcome, including avoiding possible pitfalls as well as making sure the numbers used are correct

    Two things are obvious. One, there are things you are leaving out in this story which will make a difference, and two, you need an attorney immediately to get your perspective heard properly no matter what the back story is
