    If you were arrested by a Washington State Patrol officer, the police report will be forwarded to the county prosecutor who will then make a decision on whether to file charges. If the arrest occurred in King County, the delay in filing is often several months. However, I would advise you to retain competent legal counsel at this time as a DUI arrest will also lead to an administrative action against your privilege to drive. Within 20 days of the arrest, you must request an administrative...

    As a criminal defense attorney with a great deal of experience in domestic violence cases I would have to say not; so long she did not go beyond the service of documents by passing on some message from him to you. In responding to your petition for a protection order he is required to serve you with his response.

    If the court was in error for not setting your matter to a contested hearing, the proper procedure would be to file a motion to set aside judgement. I would advise you to consider retaining legal counsel to handle the matter as your initial attempt to resolve the matter without counsel was unsuccessful.

    It is unlikely that you would be able to obtain an anti-harassment or protection order under the circumstances that you describe as the actions of your boyfriend were not directed at you or your children or committed in their presence.

    If you failed to appear at a court hearing and a warrant was issued then, yes, they "can do this." Typically, when the court grants a deferred it will advise you that you have made a 5 year commitment to the court and that during that period you will keep the court advised as to any change of address.

    There is really not enough information in your posting to provide you with insight as to how your case might resolve. I suggest that you contact several expereinced criminal defense/DUI attorneys for a free, initial consultation.
