  • How can my husband get his probation transferred to another state?

    My husband is on probation in Greensboro, NC. I have recently moved to Dover, De for a new job. He would like to get his probation transferred to Delaware. What do we need to do for that to happen? We are looking to hire an attorney to handle thi...

    Barbara’s Answer

    You should not need to hire an attorney to accomplish the transfer. Simply have your husband tell your probation officer that he intends to move, and would like to request a transfer. There is a lot of paperwork that needs to be filled out, and a $250 transfer fee. No guarantees, DE does not have to accept the transfer, and your husband cannot move prior to the transfer being approved. However, that is the process to get it transferred.

    I would file a domestic violence protective order (50B) immediately, and ask that your current girlfriend be listed as a protected party.

  • What do I need to bring for a consultation to an attorney for Domestic Violence.

    Bring everything that you can, and let your attorney decide what is relevant and what is not. Always better to have more than less.

  • How does a no contact order work in North Carolina?

    My estranged husband pled guilty to assault on a female and simple assault. The judge sentenced him to 60 days in Jail, 18 months supervised probation, court costs, classes and no contact order. My question is how does a no contact order work in N...

    Barbara’s Answer

    A no contact condition of probation is different than a Domestic Violence Protective Order, pursuant to N.C.G.S. Chapter 50B.

    It sounds like the Judge has conditioned your estranged husband's probation on his having no contact with you during the term of his probation. This condition will be enforced by the probation officer. Should your husband contact you in any form (phone, text, email, or in person), you may contact his probation officer to report the contact. It is then up to the probation officer whether or not to file a violation of probation against your husband. If a violation is filed, and your husband is found to have violated that condition of probation, the Judge could sentence your husband to a short term of incarceration, but may not activate your husband's sentence. Once probation is terminated, that no contact condition is no longer valid.

    A Domestic Violence Protective Order is a separate action, filed in civil domestic violence court. It is a civil order which could require your husband to stay away from you, and that no contact is independent from any probation conditions. If your husband violates the DVPO, you may report the violation to the police department, and criminal charges for violating the order may follow. The criminal charge of Violation of a Domestic Violence Protective Order is a class A1 misdemeanor, and punishable by up to 150 days in jail.

    I would strongly recommend that you contact a lawyer knowledgeable in the area of domestic violence to discuss your legal options.

    Barbara’s Answer

    I agree with the other attorney, you need to get a Domestic Violence Protective Order. You need to go to the courthouse in your county, to the civil clerk's office and request the paperwork to obtain the DVPO. You might also want to see if there are any victim's advocates groups in your county. They can help you file the paperwork necessary to obtain the protective order, as well as do safety planning with you. I would also recommend that you check out the website below. There is a lot of very helpful information about how to protect yourself from domestic violence. Good luck!

    bond is set at 600,000 , i got a call today that he wants a bond hearing what does this mean?

    Barbara’s Answer

    It simply means that his lawyer is making a Motion to reduce his bond. The District Attorney will be present, and will no doubt oppose any bond reduction. If you are interested in attending the hearing, or wish to be heard, you should contact the ADA that is prosecuting the case.

    Barbara’s Answer

    Unfortunately, because the action was initiated in South Carolina, he needs to consult with a South Carolina attorney. The law in each state are very different, and you cannot practice in either state without being first licensed in that state. So sorry for what your friend is going through!

  • Is the defendant in a drug conspiracy charge allowed to see what proof there was a conspiracy?

    The defendant was told he was charged with conspiracy to distribute and sell crack because of statements written on him by other defendants.

    Barbara’s Answer

    The short answer is yes, a criminal defendant is always entitled to see the evidence against him. However, getting that discovery from the District Attorney's office sometimes takes time.
