    No, while there is no "license" per se, as my colleagues indicate, your attorney will need to be admitted to that court's bar, or associated with an attorney who is, and perhaps admitted provisionally in that case by the court. Bat as a former federal prosecutor, I generally recommend that anyone charged in federal court should retain a criminal lawyer who has FEDERAL court experience. Federal criminal cases can be complex and not all criminal lawyers are familiar with the federal rules. Good luck.

    I agree with my colleagues. As a former federal prosecutor for over 20 years, it has been my experience that AUSAs will sometimes return to the federal grand jury to obtain a new Superseding indictment, with new charges or accusations, whenever new evidence becomes available. We recommend that you retain a criminal lawyer with federal court experience. Good luck.

    I generally agree with my colleague that a probationer must NOT leave the jurisdiction without permission from your probation officer (and the court), which I cannot imagine occurring. We recommend that you discuss all such matters with your own criminal defense attorney.

    While I generally agree with the other responses, in some cases, generally, it might be advisable to consult with and/or hire an attorney to obtain records, or to make other inquiries for you. Every case is different and it depends upon what you are seeking and why.

    I agree that, unless and until you elect to see an attorney and take court action, generally, in the context of a divorce, if that is what you choose to do, either parent is free to go to another state with his or her children. We recommend that you consult with an attorney about all the facts, along with your rights and options. Good luck.
