    You need to hire an attorney. Alhramba Courthouse is one of the toughest courthouses in Los Angeles County. There is a good chance they could elevate this case to a felony Commercial Burglary.

    You need a criminal defense attorney to review your file. You have a limited time to bring a Motion to Withdraw a Guilty Plea.

    Usually the Judge will look through it prior to hearing the afternoon cases. This sounds like a Civil Restraining Order, not a criminal one. You should hire an attorney and ask for a continuance.

    DUIs are notoriously difficult to Expunge, primarily because they are driving related criminal offenses. I do not believe that a DUI disqualifies you from receiving an H1 Visa, but check with an immigration attorney. Seth Weinstein, Esq.

    You will be assigned to a Public Defender. You should let him or her know your situation and your desires. You should be aware of the consequences of PC 1000 and they are no firearms ownership, plus it will still show a conviction for law enforcement purposes. Seth Weinstein, Esq.
