Is it possible to get a restraining order for receiving emails, texts, and calls from calling apps showing a different phone number? I know who it is, but he changes his number constantly. They are not threatening, just annoying.
First, if you cannot clearly demonstrate who is making the calls, it would be exceptionally difficult to prove the case in a restraining order.
Second, a harassment restraining order requires that the activities have a "substantial adverse effect or are intended to have a substantial adverse effect on the safety, security, or privacy of another." If it is annoying, I am not sure the behavior meets the threshold.See question

You may seek to change custody under statute for a number of reasons including whether the child has been integrated into your home with the other parent's consent. If what you are seeking is a parenting time modification, the standard is even lower and may be modified if it is in the best interests of the child. You should set up consultations with EXPERIENCED attorneys to discuss your options.See question

Ia am afraid that much more information would be necessary. However, one thing is clear, there is a great deal at stake. A court could remove the Stay of Imposition which would mean the felony level offense would remain. The Court could also impose any jail time stayed. You would be very wise to retain an experienced attorney on such a matter.See question

Prosecutors are the sole arbiters of what gets charged. If the prosecutor feels that he evidence is insufficient to support the charge, then there will be no criminal charges. Your girlfriend may always file a civil lawsuit.See question

No. The Court will issue no Orders at an ICMC hearing absent some agreement of the parties. It is an "off the record" hearing where the parties are introduced to their judicial officer and where they usually discuss and agree on processes such as alternative dispute resolution methods.See question

A fifth degree domestic assault can be very serious. It requires that you acted with an intent to harm someone or that the other person was in reasonable apprehension of physical harm from an act.
A fifth degree domestic assault (first offense) is a misdemeanor, punishable by up to 90 days in jail and a $1,000 fine. However, the collateral consequences of a conviction are extremely significant and, arguably, more severe than the criminal penalties themselves. As a result, it is extremely important to protect your public and criminal record.
First, if convicted of a fifth degree assault or any assault offense, employers who require a background check will not hire you. That is particularly true if you work closely with customers or in some other service oriented profession.
Second, many landlords now perform background checks for applicants and, if you decide to rent, you may be denied an apartment with a crime of violence such as an assault on your record.
Third, a conviction for assault may result in licensing problems for certain occupations or interfere with acceptance into some schools of higher learning.
Finally, it is also compelling that a non-citizen may suffer deportation and, even a citizen would lose their right to possess a weapon ,even for hunting purposes, after a conviction.
Often, the best defense is a good offense. In most instances, an argument for self defense may be made and Motions should be served to acquire all statements and medical records from the prosecution. Often, with skilled legal representation jail time and convictions can be avoided. You should retained an experienced attorney immediately.
If an attorney according to testimony has been shown to have given legal advice that led to fraud over the course of a year what is the responsibility therefore of the individual that listened to him?
It would still be fraud and a potential criminal offense. However, if you can demonstrate the advice given was poor there may be a malpractice lawsuit or it may mitigate circumstances. You must consult with an experienced lawyer.See question
