    If it is part of an ongoing investigation or serves as evidence of a crime, they would not be required to release it. You may wish to speak with counsel about seeking its return.

    Maury’s Answer

    The answer depends on the circumstances. It sounds from your inquiry as if they had the right house, but the wrong address. The matter would have to be reviewed in detail since case law suggests that some reasonable mistakes by officers may protected. You must retain experienced counsel.

    Maury’s Answer

    A person cannot terminate the parental rights simply to avoid a child support obligation. I'm afraid, it's much much more complicated than that. It must be something that is in the best interest of the child in The courts eyes. Nothing you including your post but seem to support a termination of parental rights. You must consult in person with an attorney.

  • Executing probation

    I'm goonv to be sentenced a gross misdeaminor with 364 days max. Can I get work release for my actual job? Will I only serve my two thirds and get 8 months? Can I threaten execution for a better plea? I know it cost the state money for incarnation...

    Maury’s Answer

    If you are approaching the sentencing hearing after a plea, you would be wise to return experience counsel. Certainly, The prosecutor does not care whether or not you spend the jail time actually in the jail. Accordingly, telling him you will execute your sentence is relatively meaningless. There May be many other sentencing arguments that can be made. However, I reviewed your case would be necessary to determine what might prevail. If you do receive Geo time, in most cases you would be allowed work release for qualifying job. If you do not violate any rules of the jail, you would also receive good time which generally means approximately one third off of any sentence

    Maury’s Answer

    Your question is very confusing? First, DWI case is two cases in one. There is a criminal case where you face jail time and fines. There is also a separate civil case where you would challenge the license revocation. Very strict timelines apply to challenging license revocation. You must file a petition for judicial review within 30 days from the date you receive your revocation notice. If you missed that timeframe, you will not be able to contest the license revocation.

    You should speak with counsel in person about your legal matter.

  • How do I find a lawyer to represent both parties in divorce. Made for 5 years. Limited assets

    v

    Maury’s Answer

    There is conflict of interest that exists if an attorney represents two divorcing parties. As a result, it is generally not done. It is possible that the conflict can be waived, but most wise attorneys would avoid representing both parties. Instead, one party is represented and the papers are drafted for the other party to review, either on their own or with their own attorney.
