    The ultimate decision belongs to the judge. The probation officer makes a recommendation, but the judge may or may not follow the recommendation. If he wants a bond on the VOP, a motion to set bond should be filed and set for hearing. Good luck.

    The petition must be served on the respondent at the jail. Other than that, it's like any other divorce.

    If she will not agree to sign a settlement agreement, you need to file for divorce. You are probably about to be involved in a very contested divorce. It is important to consult with an experienced local family law attorney.

    I would need more facts about what happened during the traffic stop. There may be a possible Motion to Suppress the marijuana. If it's not suppressed, possession of marijuana is punishable by a year in jail, but you are probably looking at probation or a diversion program, depending on your prior record. Contact a local criminal defense attorney to discuss your case.

    If it's a CMC with a case manager it's usually pretty easy. Call the case manager and let him or her know you would like to appear by phone, then file a motion for telephonic appearance. I would also suggest consulting with a local family law attorney.

    Legal expenses are usually awarded when one spouse is in a much better financial position than the other, or when one spouse unnecessarily causes excessive legal fees. If one spouse wants a divorce, you will be divorced. I do not know of any statutory or case law that requires a spouse to pay legal fees just because the other spouse did not want the divorce.
