    The cost of representation varies and is usually determined by several factors: the experience of the attorney, the court stay stem your case is in, whether the case can be resolved before trial or will need to be tried, and how many court appearances might be required prior to trial. I would suggest having a fee free consultations and asking questions about each attorney's experience and knowledge of the court. No one should promise you any outcome but you should get some "war stories" that...

    You need to consult with an attorney ASAP. Charges like hers could seriously impact her future. She may have very valid defenses but she will need an experienced criminal defense attorney to represent her. The fines associated with trafficking are extremely high. Do not let her enter a plea to any of those charges until she has discussed her case, the state's evidence and any and all defenses with an attorney.

    You cannot surrender your parental rights without there being a pending adoption. You could consider the possibility of filing a contempt and offering to participate in therapeutic visitation which is facilitated by a licensed counselor who can assist you and the children in repairing your relationship. I would hate for you to lose the opportunity to develop a loving relationship with your daughters just because the mother has decided to basically coach them into not wanting you in their...

    It sounds like you have several issues that need to be addressed separately. If you have filed for divorce, you need to seek a temporary hearing or emergency hearing to address the issue of who can occupy the marital residence while the divorce is pending. You may also have sufficient grounds to seek a temporary restraining order to require him to stay a certain distance from you and the children at all times, as well as your home and place of employment. If the divorce is not yet filed, I...

    If you are being offered the program, then apparently qualify. Each county has it's own rules for the pretrial diversion program. You do not enter a guilty plea when you enter the program. If you successfully complete the program, you will receive a dismissal and likely be eligible to have the arrest removed from your record.

    The notice provision you are referring to is new and likely determined in the discretion of the trial court. You might want to consider retaining an attorney to assist you with resolving the matter. Often times these matters can be favorably resolved once an attorney gets involved.

    If he has an attorney, you definitely need to be represented as well. You would be at a significant disadvantage if you attempt to represent yourself against an attorney who understands the in' sand out's of the legal system.

    You can file for divorce on the grounds if abandonment and seek an order allowing you to serve him by publication. There is a 60 day period during which he can file an answer, but it is unlikely he would do that. After the 60-day period has expired, the Court can grant a divorce. The divorce decree cannot address any issues of alimony or child support though.

    If you have not remained in a bona fide state of separation since the time of filing, the case has to be dismissed. Resuming marital relations is a definite basis for the court to dismiss the divorce petition.

    You should at least get a consultation and let an attorney look at what has been filed and what's going on with the case. You can't always trust what someone else's attorney tells you.
