There is no such thing as a ruling of innocence. If a person was acquitted at trial, then a judgment of acquittal should have entered. If that happened then it would be improper to pursue the same charges in the same court a second time.
If the case was dismissed prior to the selection of a jury, then in most cases the prosecution is free to refile the charges if they believe that they can cure whatever issue caused the dismissal and if they are not beyond the statute of limitations periodSee question
This person is on probation for 2nd DUI. His probation is supposed to be over 4/14 but, he has not paid any of his restitution. On March 17 a proposed order was issued to the court. Why is this happening before probation is over?
If a proposed order was filed, then it is related to a motion of some sort. Reading the motion will tell you what is happening. The person who filed the motion is likely also the person who filed the proposed order.
When a person files a motion, they also file a proposed order so that the judge knows what they are asking for. If the motion is granted, the judge can use the proposed order to issue the order of the court. Until the motion is granted, the proposed order has no effect.See question
I have a Permanent Protective Order on my record from a divorce 9 years ago. I've not violated the order in anyway and have no violence-related arrests or convictions on my record (other than this Restraining Order itself). I wish to purchase a...
Yes, you can file a motion with the court to terminate the restraining order. "Permanent" doesn't necessarily mean permanent in this context. Under current law you cannot file such a motion for two years after the order entered. When your order was originally entered, you were likely barred from seeking termination of the order for four years (under the previous law). Under either the old or the new statute it appears that you could now ask the court to terminate the order.
If your ex doesn't challenge your motion and show the court that she has been threatened by you in the last 9 years, it is likely that your motion would be granted.
If the existence of the restraining order is the only bar to purchasing a firearm, then the dismissal of that order should remove that obstacle.See question
Our children are grown; the youngest is 23. I have been dating my girlfriend for over a year now and she has a 6 year old daughter. My ex-wife has now decided, after several years, to bring up pursuit of child support arrearages. My guess is that ...
Your ex doesn't need to reopen anything. Neither of you has the power to modify child support at this point. It is too late to seek a brand new child support order or to modify an old one. The order you have (if any) is what you have.
If child support was ordered in Colorado in the past, you either paid everything that you owe under the court orders or you didn't. If you paid everything you owe, then there are no arrears for her to collect. If you didn't then you owe the child support arrears and those arrears are continuing to grow at a significant interest rate provided for by statute.
If you actually owe child support arrears, your ex can certainly garnish your wages, put a lien on property, and seize your bank accounts without the need for a new hearing. If she gets the assistance of the state, you can also face the suspension of your driver's license and intercept any tax refunds you are entitled to. She will need to get all of these things authorized by the court, but if you failed to pay everything that was ordered then she can get this done without providing you with any advanced notice.
If you didn't pay what you owe in full pursuant to the court orders, then you screwed up. It doesn't matter why you didn't pay or why your ex wants to collect at this time. If there are unpaid court orders for child support she is entitled to the money.See question

Since the children have lived with you for more than six months without their parents, you have standing to file a petition for allocation of parental responsibilities (APR). This will allow you to get court orders establishing custody (Colorado doesn't use that word anymore, but will determine a primary residence for the children and parental decision making), a parenting time schedule, and establishing child support. You will need to have the parent's served with the court papers and show the Court what arrangements are in the best interests of the children.
It would be a good idea to work with an experienced family law attorney.See question
My daughter , ( only 13 years of age ) , answered the front door today to be handed a demand for compliance notice . Does this mean I have to get out within three days? I haven't had a court date , or given any other chance to make payment arr...
What you received is a demand for compliance. If you actually comply within 3 days (pay what you owe or fix any other breach of the lease outlined in the notice) then everything is fine and your lease will continue.
If you don't comply, then you have to move. If you don't move, then the landlord will proceed with the rest of the eviction process. At the end of the process your property will be removed from the apartment (placed on the curb) and the landlord can get a judgment against you for what you owe under the lease agreement - which might include the costs and attorney fees involved in the eviction including the removal of your property (depends on what your lease says).
As for your reasons for not paying - they really don't matter. Just as the landlord cannot tell his bank that it's not his fault that he can't pay his mortgage because he didn't intend for his tenant not to pay rent (the bank won't care), the landlord usually doesn't care if you have a reason for not paying rent as agreed. If you don't pay rent (for whatever reason), you can't stay in the landlord's property.See question

I don't know what you are reading, but at the end of an eviction, once the writ of restitution has entered, then putting your property on the curb is the only correct and legal thing that a landlord can do with your property. They have no other legal choice - whether they are mad at you or not. You don't really expect your old landlord to store your property for you indefinitely do you? That isn't how this works.See question

You can sue anyone for anything. Whether you can prevail in a breach of contract action will depend on what the contract says. If you can show that the attorney did not earn the retainer in accordance with the agreement, then you are entitled to the return of the retainer.See question
