  • Do I need a federal criminal defense attorney?

    BATFE agents approached me at my house to inform me that a guy I have privately sold a few handguns to has been trying to smuggle the guns into Puerto Rico. They took a recorded statement after telling me not to hire a lawyer. They said I've been ...

    Amber’s Answer

    Yes, you need an attorney. These federal agents do not have your best interest in mind. They are trying to solve their case and law enforcement are legally allowed to lie to civilians to get them to cooperate. You need an attorney who will work for you and ensure that your legal interests are protected and that you don't do anything to put yourself in an even worse situation. Hire an attorney immediately!

    Amber’s Answer

    Mr. Haber gave you a very thorough answer to your question. Yes, your son could be violated as he isn't in compliance with the terms of his probation. However, your son will have the opportunity to be heard and the Judge has to find that your son willfully and substantially violated his probation by a preponderance of the evidence in order for the violation to be upheld.

    The state law says that a two year time limit exists on appeal filings. Does this apply to plea deals?

    Amber’s Answer

    If this charge ties into some pattern that shows you are an unfit or less fit parent, then expect the opposing party or counsel will bring this up in court.

  • Does the judge or attorneys ever offer counseling before divorce?

    Married with 5 children. Married for 18 years. Husband wants divorce, I do not.

    Amber’s Answer

    Yes, you will have to move the court to order counseling. If the Judge grants your motion, then you and your husband will have to go to counseling. If your husband still wants a divorce though, he will be able to move forward, because Florida, as some of the other attorneys mentioned, is a no fault state.

    Amber’s Answer

    You are bound by this agreement, but it sounds like you have some good arguments to file a Petition to Modify your agreement. You should meet with an attorney asap in order to discuss your case. If you can't afford one, you may want to consider at least getting some starting the process and drafting the appropriate documents. https://www.facebook.com/pages/Affordable-Florida-Attorney-Drafted-Divorce-and-Family-Pleading/290077957803889

    Amber’s Answer

    You should definitely hire an attorney as soon as possible, especially if your wife is represented. You need to move for a continuance ASAP. If you can't afford an attorney, you may want to consider at least getting some help drafting your financial affidavit. https://www.facebook.com/pages/Affordable-Florida-Attorney-Drafted-Divorce-and-Family-Pleading/290077957803889

    Amber’s Answer

    The other attorneys are correct. You both can't be represented by the same attorney, this is an inherent conflict of interest. Please hire your own attorney. If you can't afford one, you may want to consider at least getting some assistance drafting documents. https://www.facebook.com/pages/Affordable-Florida-Attorney-Drafted-Divorce-and-Family-Pleading/290077957803889

  • For form 902.b. If we are still living in the same house and sharing expenses, how do I fill out the form accurately.

    Unfortunately my salary is so low that we are forced to still share our home. I am finding it difficult to accurately fill out form 902.b as it asks for my individual income and expenses. What can I do in this case?

    Amber’s Answer

    Just make sure to include the expenses that you are actually paying. Contact an attorney to assist you with not only this, but your entire case. If you can't afford one, you may want to consider at least getting some help drafting your financial affidavit. https://www.facebook.com/pages/Affordable-Florida-Attorney-Drafted-Divorce-and-Family-Pleading/290077957803889
