  • Motion to dismiss injunction against repeat violence

    Greetings, I have an injunction against repeat violence on my ex husbands current wife. I have had this order for 8 years. She has recently filed an outlandish motion to vacate the injunction ( Outlandish, meaning personal/slander attacks against ...

    Amber’s Answer

    It depends on what kind of competent evidence she has to support her claims. If, as you say, the Motion is filled with lies she will be unable to substantiate her claims other then lying herself. The gun in itself is not enough to keep your injunction in affect. As another attorney pointed out, this would only be relevant is she is not supposed to be in possession of firearms.

  • I am a victim of domestic violence. How do I relocate with my children to another state when the father objects?

    I also need help on how to file an extension and/or modification to the DV injunction.

    Amber’s Answer

    You may need to get a court order depending on the terms of the injunction and any other child support or paternity orders. You should gather up all your documents and meet with an attorney to assist and advise you with this. My office is in St. Petersburg and I practice in Hillsborough so feel free to contact me if you would like a consultation.

  • Average cost of expungement of record in the state of Florida? And how long the process takes?

    I was arrested and the court withheld adjudication without guilt,but I am not even sure if that means guilty or not? If it does mean gulity I would like my record expunged. I am applying for college and want this off.Thank you

    Amber’s Answer

    Attorney's quotes will vary based on many different circumstances. Most attorneys offer free consultation and they will give you a quote for their services. If you received a withhold, and you are otherwise eligible, you can petition to get your record sealed. Expect about $200 in filing fees and FDLE application fees in addition to any attorneys fees you will need to pay.

    Amber’s Answer

    If a D-6 was not issued, I don't think the warrant would preclude you from getting your driver's license. You can go to the DHSMV website and run your driver's license number and they can tell you if you have any issues with your license.

    If you have been convicted of felon in possession of a gun in FL can the feds also charge you on the same charge?

    Amber’s Answer

    Yes. As the other attorneys mentioned due to dual sovereignty, both jurisdictions would be able to charge you without violating double jeopardy. Whether both charges will be pursued is another question. My office is in St. Petersburg if you would like assistance with your matter.
