    Your testimony in Court will be the only evidence.. You have the right to testify and will probably have to exercise this right during your trial, if their is nobody who can testify and no their witnesses.

    The judge or jury will determine if you or your spouse is more believable based oin what you say and how you act in court during the trial..

    A man who represents himself has a fool for a lawyer.-Mark Twain. You should hire a lawyer to represent you through all proceedings. If you can not afford a lawyer to attend you 1st appearance then you should go to Court, tell the judge you want to enter aplea of NOT guiilty and that you are exercising your right to have a trial. Once the judge schedules a trial date, then you will have an opportunity to go hire a lawyer.

  • If I have a Domestic Violence charge will I fail background checks for employment ? Do I need to get the charge expunged.

    I had a charge about 3 years ago. Now im planning in looking for a new job however Im worried of not getting hired beacause of this charge

    Joseph’s Answer

    If you were convicted of Domestic Violence that could create a problem on a background check. In Nevada where I practice law, we can file a petition to seal your record, if you were convicted after a certain lenght of time has passsed. If you were simply charged/arrested but never convicted then we can file a petition with the court to seal the record of arrest. Call me to discuss more details or you can come into my office for a free consultation. We are located on charleston and LV blvd.

    Joseph’s Answer

    this is pretty extreme, however a police officer can arrest you if he has reason to believe you will not return to court. The money you posted is bail, and will be returned to you after your case is concluded. This money is posted to assure the court you will return. If you feel like you commited no traffic infraction then you should plead not guilty and demand a trial.

  • Petty larceny already have an on going dv case going throught classes now with a 180 day sepended sentence static ckeck in aug

    what is going to happen can i be look up the court date of the petty larceny

    Joseph’s Answer

    It depends on the age of the first DV case, the Court, the Judge, and the District attorney or city attorney prosecuting the case. If you have a DV case and have completed the classes, finished the community service and paid your fine, it is possible that you will not be revoked simply because you picked up a new petty larceny case.

    No. this is not what a restraining order is for, a restraining order is issued when you are in fear of your life or being a victim of immediate harm. not because your kids called him a name he doesnt like.
