You should wait until 2 years pass and hire an attorney to file the petition. I have done several of these, and, as long as all the probation requirements are complete, it has been very successful.See question

So my husband was taking to jail today for criminal trespassing in Dekalb county . He got mad and kicked the front door down causing damage and the apartment is under mine and his name. So my question is what could be his bond amount ? Can this ch...
If he is charged with criminal trespass, a misdemeanor, I would expect the bond to be at most $3000.00. At this point, only the prosecutor can dismiss the case. Once you hire an attorney, he or she will begin talking to the prosecutor and try to get the best result on the case.See question
Hi my name is Amanda Beal. My 19 year old son who hasn't been in trouble a day in his life till now is being charged in Rockdale county with aggravated sodomy and aggravated child molestation. None of this is true. He needs help or this will ruin ...
Ms. Beal, Aggravated Sodomy and Aggravated Child Molestation are extremely serious charges. Only a superior court judge can set a bond and, if the person is convicted, there is mandatory prison time. When looking to hire an attorney for this case, you need to make sure that the attorney is very familiar with these types of charges and how to defend them. I would recommend speaking to several attorneys. In Rockdale County, if your son was just arrested, he will come up on a Wednesday afternoon calendar at the jail called a committal calendar. It is a chance for his attorney to see what evidence the State thinks they have against him. After that point, the case will either go to Judge Mumford or Judge Nation. This is a very serious case, I would start talking to attorneys immediately.See question

Although the detective may have told you that he or she was arresting you because you didn't return the call, the warrant is based on the allegations made by the girl. Most likely, you would have been arrested regardless of whether you made a statement or not. These are serious charges, you need to meet with and retain and attorney to represent you in this matter.See question
He went to his hearing we showed all of our evidence proving that this isn't true & the judge bounded it over , with no evidence that he did this crime and no witnesses how far will this go
It will be up to the District Attorney's office whether to charge him with the offenses. The most important thing for him to do is consult with and hire an attorney to begin establishing a defense. Many times, witnesses or evidence is lost over time. It is important for you to hire an attorney to preserve the evidence in the case that supports his defense.See question
My son has been given a citation for underage drinking, having a fake ID and disorderly conduct. His court date is 1 December 2015. He is a US Citizen. I live in ZImbabwe and wanted him to come home for Christmas this year. From what I understand,...
I would not recommend allowing your son to go to court without an attorney. An attorney may be able to resolve the case without a conviction or move the case so you son can travel without issue.See question
My husband is currently in coastal state prison a warrant for probation violation is holding from being released on his set day. Can a lawyer get him a court date and production order?
He will need to deal with his probation case eventually. An attorney will be able to speak with the District Attorney's office and the probation department to try and resolve the case in the most effective way possible. Ideally, the goal would be to resolve the case in a way that doesn't add any more time to what he already has. I would certainly recommend consulting with an attorney in the case. Is the case in DeKalb?See question
I was advised to plead guilty to an offense and the first offender right was not explained clearly to me. could I get it reversed to a first offender status??
The judge is required to consider first offender. If this was not brought up during your sentencing, you would have a good issue to bring before the court for possible reconsideration. Since this may involve whether you have a criminal history, I would strongly recommend consulting with and hiring an attorney.See question
