Substantial Evidence: How it is related or connected with the following or it is not connected to these definitions of 1) Preponderance of evidence, 2) clear and convincing evidence, 3) Beyond reasonable doubts. I understand the first 2 for civ...
Mr. Haber has correctly responded to your question. AVVO attorney answers are not intended to provide individuals with a "do it yourself" tutorial on how to represent oneself in a given area of law. It's also not a forum for general legal discussion of a theoretical nature, there are plenty of other such sites to do that. I assume you're attempting to represent yourself on a legal case. This is dangerous beyond description. Even an expert lawyer should not represent oneself. Doing so is analogous to an expert surgeon performing surgery on oneself, a laughable proposition if the consequences were not so serious and irreversible. If your question is motivated out of sheer intellectual interest, you're better served by doing your own research, as it is in process of research and struggle with ideas that one learns the most.

I have been served with a domestic violence restraining order. Most of what the girl states are lies and I can prove most of them. There are a few that I cannot prove beyond a shadow of a doubt but I think I can at least cast some uncertainty. I c...
There is no question but that you are at a disadvantage in representing yourself. Judges are former attorneys who often view self represented parties differently than they do parties who are represented by an attorney. If you can't hire an attorney, you may seek free assistance from local clinics or domestic violence shelters who may offer limited assistance in handling this matter. All the best.See question

It's unclear from your query, but it sounds like you were arrested an you're awaiting your first court and wish to travel (abroad) in the interim. There are ordinarily no travel restrictions on such misdemeanor matters. Rarely a bail company will require that you surrender your passport before it will put up bail but it doesn't seem that that's happened to you. Presumably if you've been arrested and posted bail, you've already hired an attorney. If that's true, you should be asking these questions of your attorney who will know far more amount your matter than anyone here. If you haven't hired an attorney, you should do so immediately to fight this case. All the best.See question

Generally you have the right to hire the attorney of your choice if you are charged with a crime. If you can't afford to hire an attorney, the court will appoint an attorney to represent you, though you will not have any say over which attorney is appointed to represent you. Often, though not always, the appointed attorney will come in the form of an attorney that is a salaried government employee of the public defender's office. The appointed attorney is not working for free or "pro bono" as the attorney is being paid by the county (either [as mentioned] a salaried government employee at the public defender's office or by contract with the court on a panel through different fee arrangements depending on the county in question).

I FILLED MY BAG AND LEFT THE SHOP
You've just admitting committing a crime. Are you looking for a criminal attorney because you were cited or arrested for this crime? Are you here to ask what are the chances that you'll be charged now if you were not stopped and then cited or arrested following the incident? Are you fishing for a pat on the back for getting away with this criminal incident or are you looking to be scolded for having done so? Since you've not posed a question, nobody here can do anything but speculate about your intentions in posting on AVVO. All the bestSee question

Our rights under Marsy's law I feel was violated by the Judge as well as errors made on behalf of the district attorney office. A mistake with admission from the department.
Marcys law covers many different issues. You're best a advised to hire an attorney that can represent your interests. "Filing a complaint" against a government entity can take the form of a lawsuit or the simple filing of a form (that may never be reviewed by anyone). Hire an attorney to represent your interests and pursue your goals.See question
I would like to postpone the hearing date 3-4 weeks out. Is a judge likely to allow this? Are there any legitimate reasons for an extension/continuation?
Yes, you must show up if you were personally served. Yes, you will get a continuance. You are best advised to hire an attorney as having a restraing order placed against you can have devastating effects. All the best.See question
