I'm not totally sure about what you are asking. If you're saying you want to stop the deportation process the best thing for you to do is to contact an experienced immigration attorney - that person would be in the best position to help.
Without meeting with your wife and reading the police report its impossible to tell her how she should plead.
It is unlikely she would be deported but you need to consult with an immigration lawyer who can give her advice about what she can/cannot plead to and the potential immigration consequences.
There are ways to take it off of her record.
If you have the money you are better off to go with a private attorney who can give your wife more personal time and attention. For the most...
You are asking a very difficult question. If you are trying to vacate an old conviction you have limited options, you can try to get a certificate of rehabilitation. You should contact a lawyer and explain what your prior conviction is for and what your goals are - in other words why you want to clean up your record. Some public defenders offices will accept appointment on these kinds of cases so, if you qualify, you could get a free lawyer to help you. This is a pretty techinical area of...
You should check to see if you have a warrant out for your arrest on a probation violation. Given the current budget woes they probably wouldn't send anyone after you but they could and if you were arrested in another state you might get sent back to California.
Your best bet would be to contact the lawyer who originally helped you about putting the case on calendar and getting the warrant recalled. You might be able to persuade them to allow you to transfer your probation via the...
the easiest and cheapest way to do it is to go to the clerk's office and ask for certified copies. You could ask your defense attorney but they will likely charge you to do this because they have to spend time standing in line just like you do.
This is a difficult question to answer. Search warrants aren't served on people. They are served on places. Arrest warrants are served on people. If you're dealing with a search warrant you'd need to know if the location searched was covered by the warrant. If it was then the search is valid. If the location was not on the warrant then the question is whether or not law enforcement was acting in good faith when they went into the room. If they were acting in good faith the search is...
Different counties have different rules. Many counties will require 3-5 years informal probation, at least 2 days in county jail, fines and fees. The other lawyer is correct, you could spend up to 6 months in jail and 5 years on probation but if its your first offense that's very unlikely to happen. Because amphetamine was detected in your blood its very likely that the court would order some kind of drug counseling.
There is probably a record, either of the court reporter taking your plea of a tape recording, where the judge asked you a bunch of questions. You may not have realized you were entering a change of plea. You should talk to a lawyer about the specific details of exactly what happened. Its probably a hard motion to win but worth checking.
Yes, you can appeal the denial of a finding of factual innocence. This is an extremely difficult motion to win and you have to put together a lot of evidence in order to persuade the court to rule in your favor.
Yes you have to disclose it. Almost all licensing boards in California require disclosure convictions that were either expunged or dismissed through diversion. Make sure you submit all of the paperwork showing that the case was dismissed and that you successfully complete diversion. If you fail to disclose it and get caught you will cause far more problems for yourself in the long run.
