  1. Do I have to pay full retainer to lawyer if I cancel his services?

    As has been stated previous, without more you cannot get a straight answer. You need to look at the retainer itself: was it a flat fee retainer? Was it hourly? Under certain circumstances your change of heart may not play in determining whether or not the money was owed. I would suggest that you first carefully read the retainer and thereafter call your attorney.

    You need to provide more information here in order to get a straight answer: (1) What was the disposition of the domestic charge? (2) Was this all one indictment and the state decided to no action the other charge? Things like that. If you wish to consult with an attorney privately to address the situation, contact a local Criminal Defense Attorney.

    Your reason seems justified (concern regarding the effort) and as has been stated previous, a lot will depend on how old the case is and how many times it has been continued. You may wish to reach out IMMEDIATELY to local Criminal Defense counsel and they will get in touch with both the P.D.'s Office as well as the State Attorney. This is your best bet to getting some sort of stipulated continuance. Should you desire to contact me directly I can be reached at 305-322-9971.

    While you cannot remove this from your record due to your prior felony conviction(s) you may be able to address the manner in which it appears in a record search depending on how far along the case is. Have you been convicted? I see that you were only arrested in your description above for DV and Cruelty. Perhaps you should contact an attorney in order to discuss addressing this case in the instance it is ongoing. I am in the area and would be interested in your case should it be...

    Most court appointed lawyers are paid a fixed rate by the state and/or are the P.D.'s office. In the case of a court appointed lawyer you may be dealing with an attorney who feels that you are only entitled to the representation for which he is being paid (which is very little) by the state. As for the P.D., you will have an overworked, underpaid, overstressed attorney with about 200+ cases on their plate. Accordingly, you will be more of a number than a name unfortunately. While there...

  7. American going through divorce in GT. Wants to know if he would be charged with kidnapping by his US daughter if brgt to US.

    Your question is a loaded one, but it appears that you are asking: (1) Is the Husband (A) guilty of kidnapping his own daughter; (2) Has the wife committed perjury? --- As it pertains to (1), without more, not likely. While you may not 'abscond' with the child post divorce, given your facts as presented it does not appear that he has kidnapped the child. The term "kidnapping" as per FL Stat Sect 787 is defined as "forcibly, secretly, or by threat confining, abducting, or...

    Hire a local criminal defense attorney in order to explore restoration of your rights. Without more, you may or may not be eligible to have the same reinstated on Motion by an experienced WA attorney (depending on your priors as it appears you have nothing post conviction). Do not invest in a weapon until you have spoken to an attorney and formally had your rights restored.

    Hire a local ticket attorney. These seem beatable. I did not review your citation number, but a defense is that the ticket is facially incorrect (which appears to be what you are stating).

    It appears (from your second to last sentence) that there is a writing of some sort. If you have a contract the answer should be reflected there. Otherwise, contact an attorney to handle this matter on your behalf and guide you through your transition smoothly.
