I had a spouses family member who was arrested for harassing me. Is there an order of protection issued at arraignment ? There court date is for the 2nd week of August and I'm concerned about ongoing harassment until that date.
I believe it is quite possible that an order of protection was handed down by criminal court. You can check with the clerk or the DA's office to check the status.
If you are concerned then you might feel more comfortable by going to family court, filing a family offense petition and requesting an order of protection. Good luck.See question

I posted bail for someone, and the DA wants to interview me to discuss the sources of the cash.
They want to know that the money is from a legitimate source and that the person posting the bail has a connection to the defendant. If all goes well you should not have to testify at a bail source hearing. Probably best to speak to the defendant's attorney before putting up the money. Good luck.See question

You can certainly go to court and see if his attorney will speak to you. The defendant will stay in jail unless somebody pays the bail, or he is released for other reasons. Good luck.See question
Hi I am separated with my wife from last 10 years, had a son together, but I don't know where she stays in India, how can I get divorce being here in Usa/NY ?
There are options. You can hire an investigator to track her down and have her personally served. This might be the most cost effective manner.
If this is not possible it would mean asking the court to allow for the ability to serve by alternative means instead of personal service. Good luck.See question
