    Darrell’s Answer

    I am assuming you got put on DEJ and not prob 36. If it was DEJ then the judge can terminate DEJ and pronounced sentence. I have seen judges not terminate and continue DEJ but that is rare. If you fall out of DEJ you are probably eligible for prob 36. If they said you would do 45 days, you would do about 4 days in LA County. You need to either hire an attorney or use the public defender if you cannot afford an attorney. DO NOT DO THIS WITHOUT AN ATTORNEY.

    You need to consult with an immigration attorney. This is not family law.

    Darrell’s Answer

    If the court grants your 388 then you have a chance. I am assuming you are in Children's Court in Monterey Park and if so then you are appointed counsel to represent you. I suggest you discuss this with your court appointed attorney.

    Darrell’s Answer

    Not sure what is deferred probation since we don't have that in California. But in order for you to relocate out of state while on probation, the state that you are seeking to relocate to must accept your supervision. This is done via the Interstate Compact Act and the state can refuse to accept your supervision. The probation department in your state must initiate the ICA.

    Darrell’s Answer

    Who is trying to adopt your daughter, your current husband? If that is what is going on, you are required to give notice to the father and he must either consent to the adoption, and if not, it becomes what is known as a contested adoption. The court will then look at various factors to determine if his parental rights will be terminated and abandonment is one what to terminate parental rights. Most contested adoptions in Los Angeles are heard in Children's Court in Monterey Park in Department 426.

    Darrell’s Answer

    I don't know how long ago the TRO was obtained but you should consider filing a motion to set aside the default. If you can prove that you were not home and were at work and they provided the court with a false proof of service that is grounds to set aside the default as you were never served. Therefore, the court did not have jurisdiction over you to issue the TRO.

  • Will this go on my record

    Im 19 and got caught shoplifting no police were called while I emptied out my purse and signed some papers. all the lady told me was that I will be getting a fine in the mail and as long as I pay it I will be fine and the let me go. will this go o...

    Darrell’s Answer

    No. If criminal charges were going to happen, the police would have been called to the location and you would have either been issued a citation to appear in court or taken into custody. What she was referring to was the fee they are allowed to charge to recover for their loss prevention agents. You will more than likely receive a letter from a law firm in Florida telling you to pay around $300. The penal code allows them to collect up to $500.

  • I got my second dui and the court offered me the dui court program is it possible for me to get a restricted license?

    I really need a restricted license I dont work close to home and it will be almost impossible for me to do everything the program requires.

    Darrell’s Answer

    Yes. A new law was enacted in July 2010 which allows a 2nd and 3rd time offender to obtain a license after serving a 90 day suspension. They must enroll in a DUI class and install an ignition interlock device. Prior to this law, the suspension period was 1 year court suspension for a 2nd. However, under the new law, you must serve the 90 day suspension before you are eligible for your license.
