How much do it cost to get a record expuged?: I have on my record domestic violence and child neglecte

Asked over 3 years ago in Domestic Violence

Adam’s answer: Is this an arrest or a conviction? This is only one of the considerations involved. The costs associated with sealing or expunging an arrest or conviction are one thing, but the ability to do so is quite another. You first need to determine if you're even eligible for expungement (many intrafamily offenses are not eligible for expungement). Speak with an attorney, and they'll give you all the information you need.

Does the Fourteenth Amendment give people the right to access any court, criminal, civil, family, etc..?: I would like to know if the Constitution gives all people a right to access any court in the land, whether it is a family court, criminal court, bankruptcy court..etc. For example: lets say someone who operates under the color of law does something corrupt, which in turn prevents another person from having the ability to access a court of law - is this a basic constitutional violation of their rights?

Adam’s answer: I'm having a lot of trouble understanding your question. Hypotheticals are best left for law school exams - we deal in facts, and need to reconcile those facts with the law. For instance, "who" is doing the corrupt act? The state? An individual? A member of the court? These considerations matter. As does the type of document you're seeking to access. Would it be a government document subject to classification? Will it be subject to discovery rules?

It sounds as though discretion a big concern for you, so instead of spelling out all the details on this forum, your best bet is to speak with an attorney - at least in a consultation setting - and get some insight about your specific rights, responsibilities, and remedies.

Best of luck.

Got a Reckless ticket. I have a court date in a few weeks? What should I do?: I live in Fairfax, VA. I was returning from Norfolk and got a reckless ticket on New Kent County. I was going 92/70mph. It was a sunday night and I had been working all day from 5 and drove there straight, picked up someone and was returning right back. So I had a lot of driving. The roads were clear and few cars were going around my speed at some parts of the road. I didn't realize i was going that fast and I wanted to get to the next service station to take a leak. I was pulled over and he asked me the speed limit and i said probably 70 and asked if i was speeding? He said I was going 92 and wrote me a ticket. I have no other ticket except one for exhaust for my old car which i bought like that and +3 driving points. I'm thinking of driver improvement course for backup? What should I do

Adam’s answer: So, was this in Virginia? Either way, it always pays to consult with an attorney. Don't make the mistake so many others do when they think they can handle it on their own. An attorney will not only make the outlook of a positive outcome more promising, but they'll also save you time and effort. An attorney will be able to make appearances for you, make sure that all necessary requirements are satisfied in a timely fashion, and will keep you up-to-date on everything that's going on with your case.

Best of luck.
