Sounds like the police were going a bit beyond simply lying to you to get information, sounds borderline duress and coercion. You should speak with a criminal defense attorney asap. Often in cases such as this DCFS will get involved when there are children in the home and drugs etc., so there may be real risks of your parental rights being impacted. Obtain a good lawyer to help as soon as you can.See question

I got 2 misdeamanors. -possesion of marijuana -possession of paraphernalia I have court coming up and I am scared! It's the first time I've ever been in trouble! I am 19 years old and I am a lawful permanent resident
You will need to speak in detail with both a criminal defense lawyer and an immigration attorney. If you have no prior criminal history there may be quite a bit of room to negotiate with the prosecutor and possibly resolve your case without a conviction. Additionally, there may be other options for your defense that could lead to dismissal. You need to review detail with lawyers. Hire a criminal defense lawyer right away and consult with an immigration lawyer as well.See question

First step is to hire a lawyer to investigate and represent you in the matter. Second step is for your lawyer to file a discovery request, get all the evidence, and review with you to determine options for your defense. If there was a "false warrant" as you stated, that will obviously need to be addressed and may lead to suppression of evidence or possibly even dismissal. It sounds like they are stretching for a distribution charge. Call a lawyer, go through the details with him/her,See question

I would echo the other attorneys responses here. The fact you moved from St. George to Layton to be close to your kids is probably the single most important thing you could have done to improve your chances of getting the custody arrangement you want. Hire a great attorney to move this forward and you should be in good shape.See question
I was drinking with friends and we decided to drive and we got pulled over but I wasn't the one driving I was in the back seat. The cop made us blow in a breathalyzer but he didn't tell me how much I blew he just gave me a citation and let me go
One of the most significant penalties, if you are convicted, would be the suspension of your driver's license (even despite the fact that you were not driving). Other penalties could include court fines, jail, alcohol classes, etc. Call and speak with an Attorney to discuss details and options for your defense and possibly avoiding certain penalties.See question

Speak to an Attorney about the details before you speak to the police. Call a lawyer and get advice about your specific situation. Normally it is never a good idea to talk to the police when you are being investigated for a possible crime.See question

I agree with the other attorney responses, a plea in abeyance is not a guarantee so you want to do everything you can to improve your chances of getting that outcome or better, which would included hiring defense counsel. Your charges would result in a license suspension if convicted, that penalty alone should inspire you to seek out an experienced lawyer to help. Most of us offer free consultations so do yourself a favor and call a couple lawyers to discuss details.See question

Been divorce for a while now, and my daughter has asked if she could move in with me instead of living with mom ( who has custody)
Because of her age, her preference is a factor the judge will consider but it is not the end story. As with other decisions for kids, it is never completely up to a child, a judge still needs to determine grounds for modification and that it would be in the child's best interests. You should consider retaining an experienced divorce attorney to help you through this process.See question
