  • How do I get CPS to understand there is NOT a "no contact" order?

    My husband was charged and convicted with molestation of our daughter. The sentencing order does not state he can not have contact with her during his incarceration. It only says he can not have unsupervised contact with them when his probation pe...

    John’s Answer

    CPS has a lot of authority to control the visitation between children and a parent, especially one convicted of molestation. Although the Order says only supervised visits during probation, it is not likely that they are going to allow visits during incarceration. It is probably not ideal for your child to visit her molester in jail either. You may want to consult with a counselor to consider the negative effect that kind of thing could have on your child.

  • A person hit another car, but he is not in the sence,no body injure,what kind of penalty he deserve in virginia

    Is it felony or misdemeanor? how long should be in jail?

    John’s Answer

    In Virginia, a hit and run typically is what we call it when someone hits another vehicle or property and does not stay or report it to the police. If the damage is in excess of $1000, it can be a felony charge but if the damage is less than $1000, it is a class 1 misdemeanor and carries a maximum of 12 months in jail. If you know who hit your car, you can always report it to the police and they may investigator and/or charge the person.

    John’s Answer

    If people are stalking you due to what you do, it may be possible to try and bring criminal charges. However, given the broad reach of the internet and searches that can be done, it can be much easier to fine people online. You may want to use initials when you sign a lease or possibly have ownership of your business or home in the name of a corporate entity that might be more anonymous.

  • My uncle asked me to leave my well paying job with a future to come to work for him to represent his family in his business.

    His partners 3 son's were in the business and my 3 cousins wanted no part of it. I was promised a job for life with financial security and a mention in his will. Ten years later after working my butt off and making the business even more successfu...

    John’s Answer

    Unless you have a written contract making certain promises to you, it is very unlikely that you will be able to enforce the oral agreement or promises that your uncle made to you. If he failed to mention you in his will, it is odd since that would have been the logical place that he could have made sure that he provided for you, especially given your representations about working for him so long and doing so much. Unfortunately, there is not much that can be done to enforce his promise to you.

  • What do I do is father with primary physical custody is put in jail?

    My ex husband and I have joint legal custody and he has primary physical custody. He was put in jail today. In our custody order it says that my son cannot be around my new husband. How do I go about amending that (I know I have to file an order t...

    John’s Answer

    When the primary physical custodian can no longer act due to incarceration, you can file a Petition asking the court to modify the custody situation. Circumstances may have changed which would allow you son to be around your new husband but if that cannot happen, you should consider whether another family member is available to take responsibility for your son.

  • Can I be evicted?

    I've been in my apartment for 8 months and my landlord said she will have to evict me for noise violation which It's only one lady that's calling in the building which who doesn't like me. No police reports have been filed and everytime the cops ...

    John’s Answer

    The landlord may try and file an eviction but you have the right to go to court and tell the Judge your side of the story. Since there are no police reports, the landlord would have to bring in the neighbor who says that you are too loud. The landlord should not be able to say that herself since it would be what we call "heresay". She can't say what other people are complaining about, especially since you have not been charged with it by the police.

    John’s Answer

    When you left your apartment and your rent was paid, you were still a tenant and had the right to expect that your belongings would not be thrown out. You may consider an action in court to try and sue the landlord for getting rid of your belongings if that is the case. I would require you to come to Virginia, file an action in court and then go to court and tell the judge what happened. You will also be required to provide a list of what was in your apartment.

  • How long will a convict wait after sentencing to transfer from jail to Federal prison.

    My wife was convicted of mail fraud in Federal Court and has to serve 18 months. She is being held in a regional jail in Virginia awaiting transfer to a Federal institution. How long will she have to wait for transfer?

    John’s Answer

    After a trial and sentencing, your wife will likely be transferred within 30 to 90 days, however the length of the sentence might suggest that she would stay in the regional jail for the entire duration of her sentence. Although that is rare, it could be a possibility in this case.

  • A moonshine still was found on my property in Va. I did not know about it. What ramifications am I in for?

    I own 10 acres and it is wooded area...the still was found in an area I do not go to often.

    John’s Answer

    The fact that a still was found on your property does not make you guilty of anything. It would normally be up to the Commonwealth to decide whether to try and bring a charge against you or not. Ordinarily, an investigation will require the Commonwealth and the investigating officers to evaluate the evidence and decide whether there is enough evidence to bring a charge against you or someone else. An investigator should be in touch with you and probably will want to question you about what you know.

    I have a major concern regarding a situation I am in at the moment. I did not borrow this money, but I legally owe it. PayPal processed a debit card transaction for me and two months after this, the buyer disputed both charges totalling $2,550 a...

    John’s Answer

    Your credit score will likely be affected, even if you pay off the charges. The delinquency and judgment is likely already been reported but if you can borrow money to pay off the judgment it might help to keep the credit reporting agencies from giving you a lower score.
