    You need to either hire an attorney or speak with your local public defender's office about getting an appointed attorney. From the facts you presented, you definitely have issues that are winnable. The best thing you can do is find an attorney to represent you. The worst thing you can do is go into court without an attorney and represent yourself. Motions need to be filed and argued in your case as well as potentially a trial.

    I agree with my colleagues. You need to speak with an attorney about your case before making any decisions. If you believe you or your child are in physical danger contact the police or contact Safe Shelter of Savannah at (912) 629-8888.

    Simple Battery is a misdemeanor in GA. There are additional consequences for the family violence act designation. A conviction will have long term consequences beyond the potential criminal fines and sentencing. The best thing you can do is to speak with an attorney about the specific facts of your case.

    I agree with my colleague. Charging someone with a crime is different than convicting someone of the same crime. If a pipe is all they found, you may be charged with possession of a drug related object. Either way, whenever anyone is charged with a criminal offense it is important to have an attorney represent you. An experienced criminal defense attorney can make sure that the police did everything they had to do for the search to be valid.

    I agree with Mr. Cansino. Depending on the facts of your case and your prior criminal history, you may be able to negotiate a resolution that will not show up on your record. We handle these types of cases in Savannah regularly. We would be happy to speak with you about it.

    If you are shopping for a free divorce, you will probably need to do it yourself. There is a filing fee with the courts, so it will still cost something.

    Yes you can be arrested if the police had probable cause to believe that you were growing the marijuana, even if it was not on your property. You need to hire an attorney to represent you. At this point, you do not know what evidence the State has against you, and you may have a strong defense.

    I agree with my colleague. You should hire an experienced family law attorney in your area. You make significantly less than he does. Therefore, make sure you understand your rights before you sign anything.

    First, stop talking about the facts of this case on the internet. Second, you need to call a criminal defense attorney who practices in your area. An experienced attorney will be able to review the facts of your case and let you know what your options are. You do not need to be talking to anyone about this as everything you say will be used against you. If you cannot afford to hire private counsel, you need to contact your local public defender's office.

    I agree with my colleagues. Because you "refused" you have 10 days to file an appeal to your administrative suspension. If you refuse the state test after the officer reading the implied consent warnings, your license will be suspended after 30 days unless you file this appeal. You need to speak with a DUI attorney soon.
