    Your matter is likely to result in a probation violation if your prior offense was a DWI. It may also result in new charges. You should immediately contact an attorney.

    Maury’s Answer

    Your case would have to be reviewed. However, a Parenting Consultant is a creature of contract and not statute. That means you had to agree to the appointment of a Parenting Consultant and his/her powers. AS such, the cost related to the parenting consultant should generally have been argued at that time. There is no specific "form" for filing a Motion regarding payment of those fees.

  • How can police issued a warrant on a person for 3rd degree drug sale if you haven't been arrested on it at all an have no record

    I have a warrant for 3rd degree drug sale. But I've never been in trouble for it or arrested on it ever so how can the police issue this warrant for me? Also it says case type is criminal traffic mandatory dormant what does that mean?

    Maury’s Answer

    A warrant may issue when there is probable cause for the charge and there is a belief a warrant is necessary to compel your appearance or for public safety. There are many defenses to drug charges and you must retain experienced counsel. In some instances, the warrant may be stayed pending a hearing.

    If you are charged - it is a serious criminal offense. I am not entirely certain you will be charged however. If it does occur, retain counsel.

    Maury’s Answer

    It should have been signed but the lack of signature does not provide a defense unless the items seized are important to the case and a chain of custody is lacking. You should retain counsel.

  • I received a letter from Neal C Tennen, saying that I am to pay them the amount of 400 dollars in a tort claim to best buy.

    I have returned all items, and have given Best Buy everything they requested of me. Currently all I am waiting for is to receive the restitution amount from best buy. Do I still pay the amount of 400 dollars to Neal C. Tennan

    Maury’s Answer

    If you are charged with theft - you should retain a lawyer, in many instances, you may avoid a criminal record.

    With regard to the civil demand, certainly you should not pay it if there is a criminal case pending. In most instances the creditor will not pursue the debt.

    Your question is confusing. However, there may be a basis to change custody, there is no way to know without consulting with an attorney about the details and history of your case.

  • I need an attorney who will help me sue a facility, the county, and a molester. The situation is very complicated.

    The police and county refused help right off the bat. Then they turned it on me for trying to get the child out of my house to protect my children. The facility finally had to take him because I went and complained to another county. The issue was...

    Maury’s Answer

    Chances of successfully suing the county would be unlikely since they have a form of immunity for acting in within the scope of their duties. You would have to consult in person regarding the details of your case including liability and damages.

    Maury’s Answer

    Yes - you can be required to pay child support based on child support guidelines. However, if custody has never been established, it would seem that you have a basis to commence an action to establish custody and parenting time and seek primary custody. You should contact a lawyer on AVVO for a FREE consultation.
