I am afraid that much more information would be needed.
First, if a Child Protection case is opened, the State must proceed forward with its evidence either for services or for an out of home placement. In that proceeding you would be provided with the evidence in the case.
Second, once a case is commenced, you would be very wise to hire experienced counsel.See question

Thank you for your inquiry.
As you may already know, custody and parenting time determinations are made based on a best interests of the child standard. There are many factors the court must consider in making a determination which may include the desires of the child if the child is of suitable age and maturity. It would appear, that you have evidence and ` to support a case for primary physical custody. However, how that evidence is packaged and presented can be critical. Moreover, there is always more than one side to a story presented in mediation at trial and you must prepare for the arguments that will be made contrary to your own.
It is imperative that you retain an experienced lawyer. How this case proceeds will have a long lasting impact on custody and parenting time as well as child support moving forward.See question

You should seek a free consultation with a lawyer from this website regarding an expungement. I have handled many expungements related to theft offenses. Depending on the nature of the offense (degree), they may be expunged after a statutory number of years following the offense where a plea was entered.See question
I was in a car with some people, and we stopped and they started rolling some weed. I didn't know they had anything on them up to this point. A cop pulled up, and when he asked for the weed I handed him about a gram that was on the dashboard betwe...
Your case would have to be reviewed but it is certainly unlikely that a prosecutor would simply dismiss the charge. You indicate that you had constructive possession. The contraband was within arms reach in plain view between you and your passenger. Whether you were the owner is irrelevant to whether you may have possessed the contraband. You must retain an experienced attorney. Often, even where facts are not favorable, you may seek a determination in your favor.See question
So, I was pulled over and charged with a second degree dui October, 1. My whole case was dismissed today. I still have to go to my DMV hearing, which is an undetermined date as of now. I'm just wondering what any of you think is going to happen at...
They are two different matters with two different burdens of proof. Without knowing what the issue may be or what the evidence may be, it is impossible to assess. The one thing I can tell you is a dismissal in the criminal case guarantees nothing in the civil case.See question
If I received a 3rd degree possession charge 2 years ago, and with the new revised laws on controlled substance in mn my charge is no longer would qualify as a 3rd degree, is there anything I can do about it now?
There is no retroactive application of the laws.See question

Thank you for the inquiry. I would be cautious of any advice that tells you not to worry about it. Any theft can be serious and have a long lasting impact on your record. In this case, you are also likely to receive a civil demand for payment from the store or its representative. DO NOT pay that demand yet until you speak with or retain a lawyer.
As you may know, a misdemeanor theft can be very serious. It 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 extemely important to protect your public and criminal record.
First, if convicted of a theft offense, employers who require a background check may not hire you. That is particularly true if you work closely with money or in a retail capacity.
Second, many landlords now perform background checks for applicants and, if you decide to rent, you may be denied an apartment with a criminal record that affects the tenancy.
Third, a conviction may result in licensing problems for certain occupations or interfere with acceptance into some schools of higher learning.
Often, the best defense is a good offense. Often, with skilled legal representation jail time and even convictions can be avoided. That is particularly true if you have no prior record.
My husband has filed for a divorce after receiving a head injury. I am contesting the divorce because I do not believe that he is thinking clearly and also he refuses treatment.
You never have to sign or agree to anything. However, if one party truly wishes a divorce, you cannot stop the process and the matter will proceed forward to a trial.See question

I am afraid that no attorney can provide you that answer without a full review of the evidence in your case. There are defenses to a DWI, but many do not become apparent until all of the discovery, including squad car and police station audio and video recordings are acquired. You must retain experienced counselSee question
I was on probation for dwi than left the state for a few months after I came back I was arrested and accepted a plea agreement Because I misunderstood the plea
First, your case would have to be reviewed to determine if your plea could still be withdrawn.
Second, if the plea cannot be withdrawn, the probation violation would have to be reviewed and addressed. An appeal is unlikely to be the appropriate remedy.See question
