    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.

    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.

  5. Is it illegal to arrest someone for a speeding ticket and demand cash and hold you in jail until they receive money for your tix

    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.

    A client who represents himself has a fool for a lawyer.-Mark Twain. You definitely need a lawyer for this. A conviction for domestic violence can affect future employment and child custody.

    Usually, the victim advocate will report back to the district attorney, but at some point the district attoreny will need to speak to you before the trial. You need to tell the DA that you do not want to testify against your spouse at that time..

    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.

    yes it is always possible to get charges reduced or dismissed, but it will depend on a number of factors. The decision to drop the charges will ultimately be made by the District Attorney's office (and it will not be determined by your wife simply not wanting to proceed)
