I have had my job for five years and dont want to lose it! Will I be able to get home confinement?
It depends whether the Neg 1 was originally amended from a DUI. If it was, you are looking at mandatory minimums of 30 - 45 jail. If not, the mandatory minimums are 1 - 2 days jail. The mandatory minimum depends on your BAC test. My website has a more detailed chart for DUI penalties.See question

Can I countersue?
It really depends on the specifics in your case. Generally, if you were arrested, police had probable cause, which is the legal standard to arrest. If the judge found probable cause at your court hearing or before, then you do not have a case.
The prosecutor may have dismissed the charge for a number of reasons including his or her belief that although there is evidence sufficient to establish probable cause, they just don't have enough evidence to convict.
This was against my husband and I have been subpoenaed as well. I will show up to court bu, I absolutely will not make my children go through that. What happens if I do not make them go?
You could face potential criminal consequences. For instance, obstruction of justice or witness tampering. You should contact a local attorney before you violate a subpoena or other court order.See question

I was wondering how lieniant the court will be for a second alleged domestic violence offense occurring within 5 months of each other? The first one entered a diversion, will the diversion now be revoked by the court?
The facts and circumstances of the second case will determine how lenient the prosecutors will be with you. If you are convicted of the second offense then your diversion will certainly get revoked for the first. A good attorney can help you get the best result out of your situation.

I recently completed all the requirements of the court. I was told by the Judge on the case to petition the court to have the case removed from my permanent record following my satisfaction of all the court requirements.
It really depends on the charge and the amount of time that has passed since you have completed probation.See question

He most likely qualifies for a court appointed attorney. When he gets to court the judge will ask if anyone would like to be screened to see if they qualify. Just make sure he gets to court on time and he should be taken care of.See question

A restraining order petition is a civil action, which means that you are not being criminally charged. When someone files for a restraining order, you have the opportunity to argue against the court putting one in place. An attorney can help you during this hearing. If you lose the hearing, the judge will put a restraining order in place for a year or longer.
If you are in violation of the order, the state can charge you criminally.
