Your question is really, "am I entitled to a continuance?" The answer depends on a number of things, such as the age of the case, the number of continuances previously filed, whether the state objects, the complexity of the case, and your reasoning behind the request.
Honestly, the question could best be answered by a local attorney familiar with the judge. But, you don't have a right to a continuance. The judge may allow it, but since you have counsel, the Court of Appeals would not reverse a conviction on the basis that he wouldn't let you have a continuance in order to get new counsel.
Again, speak with a local attorney that is familiar with the judge. They will know before they wade in, whether or not they are likely to get it continued.
Best of luck, Jeff
If I am pregnant by my ex boyfriend is it illegal for me to leave the state? He says it is illegal for me to leave the state carrying his child without his permission. Is this true?
No, that is absolutely untrue. Until paternity is established in a court of law, you are free to make all the decisions on behalf of your unborn child. You are free to go is you please.
Now, as a practical matter, I would not rub his nose in that.See question
The neighbors daughter was spitting in our dogs face through the gate and throwing items at him she then let him out of the cage and then ran away from him
Dog bites fall in the category of strict liability. That typically means that if your dog bites someone, you are liable. In this case, you may be able to establish the children provoked your dog. However, if the child has significant injury and medical bills, you can expect to be contacted by a lawyer. If so, give him your homeowners, or renters policy information and let him make contact with the insurer. They will deal with it, including providing a lawyer to defend you.See question
I had to return my son to Michigan City because he lied in court that I took my son away from without telling him. Of course, he knew everything, but he didn't want me moving in with my fiance. I feel the judge in the case is having an issue with ...
You cannot get a new judge at this point by virtue of the change of judge rule. It would require actual bias on the part of the judge that you would have to point out, the judge would have to agree and would then have to recuse him or herself. That's not going to happen. All that would happen is that you will alienate the Judge.
The Judge has actually done you a favor in appointing GAL. That is how you get your side of the story across to the judge. Be cooperative with the GAL. They are there for the benefit of the child, but they want to hear from you. They want to understand what is going on. Tell the GAL exactly what your ex is up to. Tell the GAL what the lies are. Get the GAL to talk with the child's teacher if that's relevant.
At the end of the GAL's investigation, they will write the report that contains a recommendation. The judge will likely follow the recommendation, unless it can be demonstrated that it is flawed.

The new BMV computer program has been causing many instances such as this. Unfortunately, there is no cookie-cutter remedy for folks in your situation. The HTV determination needs to be judicially challenged in court on one or all of the following theories: due process violation, public policy, laches, or principles of equitable estoppel due to the length of time.
You must consult with a lawyer well-versed in these matters in your area. It is your only hope, and you must act fast. Especially since there is likely an administrative appeal timeline running.

date of sentence 6/19/2003 release date 8/23/2003 possession of controlled subtance cause number 49g14-0105-df-119710 marion county
Sort of. Eight years from the date you completed probation or completed the sentence, whichever is later, you can get a D felony restricted/sealed. It's great for purposes of job interviews and the like. However, it would not prevent law-enforcement from finding out about the prior conviction.
A private attorney can't tell you this. Warrants aren't public information. For public policy reasons, they don't give that information out, as folks tend to disappear if they're ducking a warrant.

When two opossing lawyers meet with a judge a few days before a court hearing date, is a Court Recorder present at the time taking notes, and can I request a copy of them? My case has been postponed for over 4 years at these small hearings that I ...
No, these meetings are not recorded. What happens in Chambers is off the record. You can request that the hearings be held on the record. However, before doing so you should have a frank conversation with your attorney. Ask him why it is been delayed so long, what is his strategy and what is his goal? It could be that you have a very difficult case. As you had given no details I do not know.
Good luck, JeffSee question
