First, civil restraining orders involve petitions and respondents. Second, as others have pointed out, the party to an action can not serve the other side . Restraining order matters are decided entirely by judges. Judges in civil court, fair or not, see many pro se litigants who are lacking in basic knowledge of law and procedure. You are best advised to hire an attorney to help you through this and will receive better treatment by the judge. If you're in court without a lawyer and the other side has an attorney, you face an extreme disadvantage. All the best in you matter.See question

This is not something that you should handle by yourself. You seem not to understand the ramifications of an arrest not leading to a criminal case filing as opposed a conviction as it relates to your immigration issues. You also seem not to understand the procedure for obtaining a positive outcome in a petition for factual innocence pursuant to pc 851.8. Only in the rarest of cases will the arresting agency support an arrestee's application per 851.8, optimally you would retain an experienced attorney to handle this for you which would require a motion filed in court and served on the District Attorney. That said (state) 851.8 has minimal if any bearing on (federal) immugration issues. Hire an attorney. All the best.See question
Hi I have a petty theft charg3 that turned into a robbery. I am by no means a violent person. I really went into self defense mode. I am currently dealing with a dv in another state and this charge was about a year ago while I was living in ca. I ...
The public defender's office is the free or low cost attorney that you can obtain if you are charged with a crime. You have a right to an appointed attorney at government's expense if you can't afford to hire an attorney. If you can afford to hire an attorney, you can choose to hire whichever attorney will agree to work for you. However if you can't afford to hire an attorney, you don't have any choice over who your appointed attorney is. Indigent persons in need of a doctor have more choices in choosing their doctor (anyone doctor that accepts Medicaid) than they do in obtaining an attorney if they're accused of a crime (whichever attorney the government appoints to you). All the best in fighting your case.See question

The civil demand is pursuant to 490.5, it's unrelated to any potential criminall case which won't be forthcoming. Paying the demand, which wont lead to a lawsuit, seems wasteful unless you think throwing money down the drain is fun or sensical. Your "what if" questions could be posed in other arenas of life, "what if while crossing the street I get hit by a car; what if I get struck by lightning; what if...?" All an attorney can say, as they have here, is that it is an exceedingly remote possibility that police would be summoned about a small theft, well after the theft, when the merchant has volunteered that it wouldn't lodge a police complaint against the alleged thief. If "lightning strikes", hire an attorney. If you can't rid yourself of the gnawing feeling that lightning will strike and desire psychological assurance of knowing someone is there to protect you, hire an attorney. If you're ever contacted by police for whatever reason, related or unrelated to this matter, you're best advised to remain silent and ask for an attorney. In reality you're fine, forget about this and move on to better things. All the bestSee question
