    You do not have a right to have an attorney appointed to represent you in a non-criminal defense proceeding. If you want your record expunged, you will likely need to hire a private attorney to guide you through the process. In Ohio, two misdemeanors can be expunged from one's record, unless an exception applies. See http://francelawgroup.blogspot.com/p/criminal-record-expungement-sealing.html for more information. Do not get another conviction between now and the time you get your...

    You should refrain from posting anything on the Internet about your case and instead privately speak with your lawyer. What you say can and will be used against you. The Toledo Municipal Court has its own procedure for doing things. There, A.M. trial dates are very similar to pretrials--they are used as an opportunity for people to try to resolve matters through plea bargains. The P.M. trial dates are the ones in which witnesses testify and a decision is rendered by the factfinder. I...

    You should consider hiring a family law attorney. If you cannot afford one, consider contacting a local bar association to see if any attorney in the area can assist you for free (pro bono). Ex parte means that a hearing is going to occur in which the other side is not present (a one-sided hearing between a party and a judge). The costs would likely be listed on the court website under "filing fees." Good luck!

    You should privately consult with an attorney who practices in the area of family law. In Michigan, a spouse who is unable to pay for their divorce attorney can ask the judge to force their spouse to pay.

    You need to immediately and privately consult with a criminal defense attorney. Do not post anything online--even on Avvo--and do not talk about the matter with anyone who is not your attorney. What you say can be used against you in court. Respectfully, you'd be a fool to represent yourself in court, unless you went through three years of law school and demonstrated that you are qualified to be a lawyer by passing a bar exam. www.KyleBristow.com

    You should have an attorney review your case. If you guess wrong, you will commit a very serious felony. Only by having an attorney review your case can it be determined whether you are prohibited from even possessing a firearm. www.KyleBristow.com

    The boy needs to immediately and privately consult with a criminal/juvenile defense attorney. The potential exists that he can be charged with a sex crime, including rape or possessing child pornography. Get an attorney involved as soon as possible--cases can be won and lost at the investigative phase. Waiting until charges are filed could be too late. www.kylebristow.com

    If your partner's son was given your partner's ashes, and then your partner's son gave them to you, then you likely have exclusive rights to them. This doesn't mean that they won't sue you, which could cost a lot of money. It be best to try to resolve this matter amicably. If the matter cannot be resolved, you should consult with and hire an attorney. Good luck!

    You should privately consult with an attorney. Do not write about this matter online, and do not speak with anyone about it who isn't your attorney. What you write or say can be used against you. Look for a lawyer who practices in the area of civil litigation. Good luck!
