    Yes, they can have him move out. Yes, but it is unlikely, you could make a number of bad choices on how to deal with this and risk losing your child through a dependency and neglect action. Again, this is a very unlikely result. On both issues, there are many things you can do to reduce the chance of these bad results. On the first issue, your boyfriend needs to consult with a lawyer immediately. In particular, if he is on probation for an indeterminate (life) sex sentence. One of the...

    Defamation may exist, but you have a clearer case of civil extortion or extortion per se. However, the value of the case is likely not worth the effort. What you do need is a criminal defense lawyer. The effect of a conviction for stealing from your employer will seriously alter your employability for the rest of your life. You need to beat that charge. Good luck! Call if you have more questions. Respectfully, John Pineau

    Let me just be straight with you, get a lawyer now. You are the target in a very complicated proceeding much of which goes forward informally among a group of professionals who work with each other on a regular basis. In short, there is a small cadre of representatives of the county and, to some extent, the parties, who negotiate these cases at a rapid rate every day. You are likely to find yourself cranked through the gears with little sense of what's going on other than the fact that it...

    It depends on the nature of the arrest/charge. Here is an excerpt from the CBI homepage, "The computerized criminal history (CCH) database contains detailed information of arrest records based upon fingerprints provided by Colorado law enforcement agencies. Arrests which are not supported by fingerprints will not be included in this database. Additionally, warrant information, sealed records, and juvenile records are not available to the public. To locate information regarding...

    Is it a joint account? If it is, you have not agreed to share your financial information with the state (probation). What does the PO need it for? These may be questions you should pose, in writing, to the ultimate supervisor of probation, the court. However, before beginning this fight, you may want to call the PO directly and ask why they need the records. If you don't like the answer, write a letter to the court. Good Luck! John Pineau

    There is already a record of your arrest in this case. To return to a clean record you need to either negotiate a plea that will permit a record seal at a later date or get an acquittal at trial. The record seal requires that your plea be to a sealable offense and that you file a separate civil action to seal your record. In short, you are going to need a lawyer.

    Absolutely! But it is a judgment call influenced very heavily by the position that Probation takes on the issue. If the Probation Officer is in favor, there is a good chance it will be approved. You can file for it without probation approval, but it will be an up hill fight. Good Luck! Respectfully, John Pineau 303 440 4444

    You need to contact an attorney as soon as possible. Your issue is very serious and the case that it is set in is very serious. Please call at your first opportunity, we will not charge you for the consultation, but you need to speak to counsel immediately and cease speaking to anyone else until you have been fully advised.
