I would cooperate with your husband's attorney, but you should have independent counsel, or at least consult independent counsel. You have a right not to testify against him under the marital privilege, but the marital has limits. I would probably consult your own counsel first before you talk to his attorney. The ultimate arbiter of which charges will be dropped is the prosecutor, not his attorney.See question
My boyfriend and I both live in Georgia. He is 16 and I am 18. Can I get in trouble if we have sex and I get pregnant?
Sixteen is the age of consent for criminal purposes. However, make sure you are willing to accept the responsibilities for parenthood for the next 18 years plus the gestation period before you decide to get pregnant. Parenting is one of life's most major and challenging undertakings; be sure before you jump into it.See question

If you were arrested and posted bond, then the case is pending. You do not answer a felony case until you are indicted, or if it is one of the few felony charges in Georgia which does not require an indictment in order for the prosecution to continue. However, do not post anything about your case on the internet because it could be used against you. I would consult a criminal attorney and remember, when you are charged with a crime, your mouth is your own worst enemy unless you are talking to a lawyer about defending you in a case.See question
FTA Bench warrant
The question of whether or not you will be extradited by either Georgia or Virginia usually depends on the seriousness of the charge in Kansas. If it is for a serious crime like bank robbery, murder, or child molestation, then the answer is likely yes, Kansas will seek to extradite you. You can always defend against extradition but your defenses are limited, and there is no double jeopardy right to not have the state which seeks to extradite you try again. In one's favor is the fact that generally the requesting state has to reimburse the sending state for time spent in jail. If you fight extradition, you do not get an immediate court hearing so the costs go up. As there normally is no bond in extradition cases, these expenses can add up for the state which seeks to extradite you. The sensible thing to do however is to contact a Kansas criminal attorney to look into defending you on the outstanding charge, and maybe working out a resolution before you return to Kansas. Otherwise, you will remain a potential fugitive for your entire life until such time as you can resolve this outstanding case,See question
I lost my green card on 2015. On 2013 I had renewed my green card and it's expiration date is 2024. But on 2015 I was involved in three shoplifting and unfortunately did not realize at the time the consequences of my action. I also have failure to...
I suggest that you resolve your case for failure to appear. If you are a lawful permanent resident, only the Immigration Judge can deport you. However, the officers can have you arrested and deliver you to the county that issued the bench warrant. The question of whether three shoplifting charges will result in your deportation is only resolved with the benefit of the complete court records for your two resolved cases, and with reference to your pending case. You need legal counsel sooner rather than later.See question
I applied for lost green card i 90 on April 2016 ..it's already July 5 the 2016..when will I receive my new green card?
USCIS is quite backed up at this point in time. Some of the cases are taking nearly a year. I suggest that if you need proof of your residence to drive, work, or travel outside of the U.S. that you make an INFOPASS appointment and politely ask for proof of your lawful permanent resident status while your I-90 is pending. If you are polite to the INFOPASS officer, they will probably help you because this is a recurring problem, i.e. delays in decisions on Form I-90. Good luck!See question
Will I be able to reopen I 90 if it gets denied?
You have not explained why your I-90 green card was denied. Presumably it can be denied because you are in fact not a lawful permanent resident, or it was denied because you did not cooperate with the process, such as failure to provide requested information, or for failure to attend a fingerprint appointment, for example. I suggest that you contact an attorney before you spend money on filing fees for reopening. It is cheaper to re-file than it is to file a Motion to Reopen, but an experienced professional attorney can tell you how to reapply. Remember, unless you are somehow not a lawful permanent resident in the first place, the denial of an I-90 does not mean that you have lost your residence; it only means that for some reason USCIS will not provide you with a proof of your lawful permanent resident status which they are required to do under Section 264 of the Immigration& Nationality Act. .See question

She has four years from the date of her plea to file a Petition for Writ of Habeas Corpus based upon Constitutional ineffective assistance of counsel. You must serve the Attorney General of the State of Georgia and the District Attorney who presided over the plea. A Petition for a Writ of Habeas Corpus is a civil suit which alleges that the Petitioner was wronged by an attorney, or some other part of the legal process, but it rarely goes to guilt of innocence. You will need a lawyer to file one of these cases because they tend to be complex, and you only have one chance to try to set aside the conviction.See question

If a condition of your probation is that you report all arrests, then you need to report your arrest. The question of whether or not you may contest the legality of the search depends on the precise wording of your probation.See question

An ethical immigration attorney should meet with you prior to the hearing and discuss what relief from deportation you qualify for, not just to take your case without knowing discussing what avenues of remaining in the U.S. are available to you. If you have met with attorneys who will not take you case, you should ask them why they won't take your case. If you are not a U.S. Citizen or lawful permanent resident, the burden is on you to show what relief you may be eligible to file for. There are not enough details in your answer to determine what you qualify for, but that should be discussed thoroughly in a consultation before you go to court. If you go to court without an attorney but plan to hire one, insist on legal representation before you open your mouth. Some judges will bully those who do not have attorneys; you need to explore with an experienced attorney what relief there is for you. Beware of attorneys who make promises to you.See question
