More importantly, call the Court to make sure a bench warrant was not issued for Failure to Appear. If it was, take the ticket to the Court so that the Warrant can be recalled.
Assuming that the underlying offense was a traffic matter, hire a traffic attorney to represent you and perhaps keep it off of your record.See question
My boyfriend was arrested in Hamilton County, IN. We posted bond days ago but he has warrants out of Howard County, we have called the court and the jail trying to pay his bail for those warrants. No one will let us pay, Hamilton County says the...
Please recognize that your boyfriend has multiple warrants in multiple counties. THAT is crazy. If any of the warrants is a bench warrant for Failure to Appear, there is NO bond because it is NOT bondable. He MUST remain in custody until he sees the judge and he files a bond petition.
Please also note that posting bond in most Indiana jurisdictions makes you ineligible for a public defender because there are attorneys who will accept the representation for assignment of the bond. Bonding him out may have been a bad strategy, especially if you cannot afford or choose not to post bond on the other offenses.
Discuss the situation with local counsel, preferably someone who regularly practices in BOTH Hamilton and Howard Counties. Good luck.See question
I've been doing everything the case worker ask me to but now since I've been injured at work and got fire what should I suspect from the court, the case worker, my attorney and also foster parents? I am in the process of a new career?
You should consult a Family Law attorney about custody of your daughter.
You should ALSO consult a Workers' Compensation attorney about your injury. Though an injured worker CAN be fired, they MUST be paid while they recover and their medical must be paid also. Workers' Compensation attorneys do not charge for consults and there is no up-front fees or costs so your up-front cost is zero.See question
About 12 years ago I was arrested for check deception. It was just a checkbook mistake on my part, but definitely not intentional. I was entered into a deferment program and was told that's all there was to it unless I got in trouble again(which I...
Prosecution was deferred. You were NOT convicted of anything. The fact of the arrest will remain on any NCIC report that is run.See question
Nephew with bipolar didn't appear in court 4 times for driving without seatbelt, was driving with suspended license and pulled over because headlight out and put in jail pending court on Monday and a fine of $1,250.
There are two questions. 1.) There is no bond on a bench warrant because you failed to appear. 2.) This is not 18th century England. You CANNOT be held in custody because of a debt. If the suspended license charge was "Suspended Prior" it is NOT a traffic ticket but a Misdemeanor. If he pleads guilty or is found guilty of a Misdemeanor, he CAN serve jail time. The most common result of unpaid fines is indefinite suspension of your license. Hire a traffic attorney to represent him.
If his bipolar disorder is so bad that he cannot appear in court, he may not be fit to drive.See question

I agree with my learned colleagues. I would only add that if your husband's employer already agreed that he is permanently and totally disabled, no attorney can charge you more than $100.00. Saving that $100.00 may have cost you hundreds of thousands. Hire experienced counsel before more bad things happen.See question

The court just got tired of monitoring him/her. You can take the Order from the criminal to the civil court and get an immediate judgment against the defendant.
You are ALWAYS responsible for your medical bills. They should have been put through your health insurance. The Court Ordered "restitution," (repayment to you) NOT payment of your bills. The prosecutor's victim/witness department shouild have explained the process.See question
I got hurt at my job cant return they wouldnt accommodate me at my job found other employment with lower pay and they paying me wage differential but they paying me the difference from my workers comp benefits not my pay rate i was making at my jo...
I agree with all of my colleagues. For example, NEITHER of the option you note above is correct. Hourly rate has nothing to do with anything. Your AWW (average weekly wage) is what counts. Your wage differential is paid at 2/3 of the difference, In your example, based on 40 hours, you should get (1,313.60 - 440.00= 873.60x2/3) $582.40 PER WEEK.
Representing yourself is costing you $552.80, every 2 weeks.
For Illinois Workers' Compensation claims, you will ALWAYS cheat yourself if your do not hire experienced counsel. You will have someone to guide you through the process AND when it is time to settle, an attorney can add value to your case IN EXCESS of his fee. In the last few years, employers also seek to advance the argument that when you settle a case without an attorney, your already low settlement should be further reduced by 20% so that you do not get a “windfall.” Representing yourself in Illinois is a lose-lose proposition. When you are represented, you have fewer headaches AND you get more money. It really is a no-brainer.

I am being forced to be the states witness against my boyfriend and I am going to say nothing. How long can they hold me in jail for refusing to testify.
If your testimony could incriminate you, you have a right NOT to testify and they cannot hold you. If the Prosecutor grants you transactional immunity, you WILL testify or you will remain in custody, indefinitely, because you are in contempt of court and it is within the court's discretion to hold you.See question

Unless this accident was caused by a commercial truck, it is VERY unlikely that you will get anything approaching fair. Moreover, you stated that there were "multiple airbornes and roll-overs." The at-fault driver's coverage MUST be divided among ALL injured persons. You need someone to pursue an underinsurance claim and to negotiate medical liens and subrogation interests.
