    One situation in which a crime can be charged by one Wisconsin county even though it happened in another is if the charge is brought against a young person in juvenile court. See Wis. Stat. 938.185.

    At this point, whether he can contact you is supervised by the probation dept, and may be set by a rule of supervision, established by the probation dept. If you meet with the probation agent and request that the no contact order be dropped, the agent may drop it for you. The agent may require you to put your waiver of no contact into writing, and sign that. Your agent may allow some contact but not full contact. You're both now adults so the purpose of keeping him away from you is now...

    That was a tough sentence for a small amount of MJ, unless more in play. She will probably be revoked but not necessarily. If revoked the original stayed sentence will kick in. She might however pick up a new charge to go with the warrant violation, and be facing a little time on that. Mitigating factors will play a big role at every discretionary step along the way. Recent changes in the sentencing law may benefit her, under what is known as Act 28. Get a good attorney with a track...

    It will be a technical violation, but relatively minor one with mitigating circumstances. He would not likely be revoked for it alone, but it goes on their log and if he gets into worse trouble this will be trotted out as another incident to show poor adjustment. Very unfair given how police know they can target minor equipment violations as a basis to stop and investigate. He's been doing otherwise well, they should let him out again with a warning to keep his allowed driving hours up to...

    You can file a motion to modify the child support order. You need to review the evidence and findings of the court in issuing the existing order, and prepare to argue how the relevant circumstances have changed, as affect the statutory factors the court must consider. Be sure to have all available supporting evidence ready to show the judge or court commissioner, you need more than just your word. Ideally you will have a family lawyer help you with this. Perhaps you can find one you can...

    If that's the story you win. They need to prove your intent, directly or as party to a crime. Stop talking to the cops. Let your lawyer do that for you. Plenty of people for assorted reasons may leave car unlocked, they're not all conspirators, that's silly to argue. The cops have no evidence of your involvement other than leaving the car unlocked and you can give a perfect motive for that err. You should hire a skilled no nonsense attorney who will do the proper investigation the police...

    Depends on whether the public defender office in the county having custody covers cases in the other county. This will normally happen in the more thinly populated smaller rural counties. Otherwise you will need a Public Defender who works in the county wanting your son for court. You should call the Public Defender's field office in the county that seeks to bring your son into court there. Make sure you have your son's core information about himself and the case, ready to discuss before...
