I want to diverce in my country i get my finale diverce here in denver co
I suggest you repost your question under "Divorce" or "Family Law". The "certificate of no appeal:" is type of document often requested by courts in countries with a European type of legal system, but one that is unknown to most, or at least to many, American jurisdictions. If the clerk of the jurisdiction that granted your American divorce does not issue such a certificate see if your lawyer and the consulate of the requesting country can figure out an adequate substitute.See question

My husbands case is in the appeals part of his case and I check the appeals website to check his case docket and it says " motion for extension of time to file initial brief" what's is the initial brief ? What does that mean?
I agree with my Florida colleagues. If you are asking what a "brief" is, it is a written document submitted to a court presenting, usually in great detail and supported by legal analysis, the legal argument in favor of the party who submits it. At the appeal level a brief often takes the form of a bound book or pamphlet, perhaps some 20-50 pages in length, prepared in conformity with the court's rules.See question
I was accused of an inncident a month ago hired a criminal lawyer immediately. My courtdate is aug 23 she said she can not start my case until the states attorney gives her the reports. She has already been paid I feel she is doing nothing for my ...
It is not unusual that there is little that the defense attorney can do until discovery is provided by the State, and it is not unusual that this can take some time. It all depends on what the case is about and the nature of the material that the prosecutor is required to disclose. It is entirely normal for the attorney defending a criminal case to be paid in advance and it is entirely normal for the progress of a criminal prosecution to be marked by continuances and delays.See question
The judge made a decision based on assumptions. In the court order, the judge states that she did not have enough facts but made a decision based on an emergency. However, a lot of circumstances have changed. Can I fight the decision and how much ...
You can appeal a final and appealable order and under come circumstances you can appeal an "interlocutory" order, that is, an order that is not final and would ordinarily not be appealable. It is impossible to tell from your posting whether the order you are asking about is final and appealable or, if not, whether it might be appealable under the rules relating to appeals from interlocutory orders. This is a somewhat complicated subject far beyond the ability of a simple online Q&A forum like this to handle. I urge you to consult an Illinois attorney familiar with appeals in marital and child custody matters.See question
For a few weeks my status was post hearing review and now it says appeal under review what does this mean? Also while it was in post hearing review,I call the local office and a worker told me it looks like it wasn't favorable. I called my lawyers...
Unlike my colleague from New York I do not think this sounds like a criminal case. "The "local office" and "a worker" suggest that you are dealing with some kind of an administrative agency, maybe Immigration or Social Security or some such thing. But two things stand out.
First, your question leaves it very unclear what your case is all about and what is going on.
Second, and more important, you already have a lawyer representing you. You tell us so in your posting. That is the person to whom you should be directing your questions. Your lawyer and nobody else.See question
What is the Statute of Limitations for 5 U.S. Code 2302?
Be very, very careful about statutes of limitations. An imaginative prosecutor can often find a way to avoid them. If this matter is of any importance to you at all I would consult an attorney rather than rely on what you might pick up on an online Q&A forum like this, which is probably quite inadequate for you needs.See question

First of all, he doesn't have to prove his "innocence". The prosecutor has to prove him guilty, and has to do so beyond a reasonable doubt. Beyond that there is no way to answer your question in this kind of very simple and limited online forum. There are a number of ways in which somebody could commit the crime of armed robbery without being actually present, so yes, that can happen. Your friend needs a lawyer, not a chatroom. There are some superb criminal defense attorneys down there in Abraham Lincoln country. If he cannot afford to retain private counsel the judge will appoint the public defender's office, which will assign an attorney to defend him. But the defense of a criminal prosecution, especially of a very serious charge like armed robbery, is not something one tries to do online.See question
Plea was accepted for the state, but there was a stolen firearm and class I charges for quantities on a federal level
I agree with my colleagues that this is an issue to discuss with your attorney. Just in general, negotiation of a global plea agreement requires the participation and consent of every prosecutor involved, however many local, state and federal jurisdictions and prosecutors there may be. A prosecuting authority that has not joined in the agreement will not be bound by it. The time to get everybody on board is before, not after, you enter a plea.. Work with your lawyer on this.See question
Trying to find a pro bono post conviction attorney for my ex husband who was.convicted of 5 bank robberies in 1992 and there was.no evidence to connect him to either robbery. Even eyewitnesses didn't identify him. He said he was innocent. He has s...
It is hard to find a post-conviction attorney period, pro-bono or not. Here are some reasons:
1. Post-conviction work is extremely difficult and potentially open-ended.
2. Very few attorneys have the experience necessary to work on this kind of litigation, which demands the combined.talents of a first-rate trial lawyer and a first-rate appellate lawyer, along with a lot of unusual procedural knowledge.
3. Post-conviction work is an exceptionally steep uphill fight, and despite the extraordinary effort and ability required, such cases are seldom successful; so it could be a huge amount of work and stress for nothing.
4. From your posting, it sounds as though your husband is way past the deadline for a 2255 motion, which is the form of post-conviction proceeding available to federal prisoners, so anything he did file would probably be dismissed on procedural grounds without reaching the merits..
5. Appointment of counsel is not usually available in this type of case, so if you do not pay the attorney there will be no compensation at all.
6. Very few lawyers are interested in accepting a potentially massive case on those terms, and even fewer could afford to do so even if they wanted to.
7. I am not alone in telling you that I could paper my walls with letters from prisoners asking me to represent them without compensation.
8. This is your fight and your husband's, not the lawyer's. If you, your husband's family, and all of your friends are unwilling to contribute to a serious defense fund, going door to door if necessary to raise the money, why should a total stranger work on the case for two to five years, or even more, for nothing?See question
