Retain an attorney to write the 3.850 for you. My firm is located in Tampa and handles such matters. Good luck.
This answer does not, nor is it intended to, create an attorney-client relationship or constitute attorney advertising. Rather, it is offered solely for informational purposes. The facts of each case are different and unique, it is critical to consult with qualified counsel with whom information can be shared and assessed under attorney-client privilege, so that competent and quality advice can be obtained on which you can make informed decisions
You will need to contact an attorney to file a 3.850 or your son can do it himself but that is rarely a good idea. Good luck
A 3.850 is part of the post conviction process. Lots of questions necessary to actually get the full picture. I do these all over in florida and in the federal courts all over the country.
a 3.850 is the place to introduce evidence of what should have been done that was not and what was done which should not have been. Prejudice is also required.
these are a big deal and take a great deal of work. you need to consult an attorney because there are strict time limits on when he can get relief.
of course, you and i are not forming an attorney client relationship. Representation in Florida Courts and Federal courts nationwide. Argued at the United States Supreme Court,
