We do not currently have an official custody arrangement. It has been 9 years since we divorced. The children are both 15 years old. We are afraid to go for court for one because the children don't want to see their father more than they have to if we fail to get sole custody. However, the... Read more »
I am not sure what safe legally means? The father has an equal right to see his children, so a court may order visitation. The children's viewpoint is one of 16 factors the court considers in ordering visitation. Here is where it gets nasty. Florida is a member of the custody compact but...Read more »
Eventually. The idea is that they will hopefully pick you up when you are out and about. But every county does roundups every so often. Ideally, they will catch you in your car, for a speeding ticket, then you are an easy target. Eventually, they will come to get you though (holidays are a...Read more »

There is literally no way to answer this question. There may be differences in culpability. There may be differences in prior history. There may be differences in family life. There are literally a dozen reasons a judge could sentence one person differently than another. Ask your attorney,...Read more »
I am being charged with disorderly conduct Hazardous/ Physical Offense(M3). which I just found out about by receiving a summons in the mail? I dont have representation at this time but I would like to get a copy of the video footage this officer claims to have as evidence as soon as possible.
In summary cases there is no real authority that grants discovery. That being said where it is available judges often can order it. You can write a letter to the court requesting discovery and make sure you serve the police department. Dont reference the facts of the case, make admissions or...Read more »
When you say you are being pursued, do you mean there is a warrant for your arrest? You can check this on the UJS portal. 8 years is a long time to leave a case open unless the allegations are very serious. You should have a confidential consultation with a defense attorney. They should be able...Read more »
Depends on the court. The short answer is no, you can do anything an attorney can. The problem really lies in who you are subpoenaing. If its someone who shouldnt be subpoenad the judge may not enforce it. Additionally, if its a victim of the crime it could be viewed as harassment....Read more »
As a practical matter there is no way to meaningfully answer this question. The problem is we have very limited facts regarding the case and/or your prior criminal history. Can you go to jail?

i do not know a lot about them besides their account impersonating me and email. im also underage and dont know if that makes it even more illegal as theyre technically posing to be selling child porn?
Call your local police department and have them investigate. You can also lodge a complaint eith the attorney generals office although this is a much more tinely process. You could file a private criminal complaint but unless you have more information that is unlikely to bear fruit. Your best...Read more »
You dont pose a question to be answered. Reckless driving carries a suspension with it so its a ticket you probably want to plead not guilty. Stopping you when you parked is not a defense, ao hopefully there are better facts. You probably should do a full conaultation with an experienced traffic...Read more »
There is almost no way to answer this question with the information provided. If the officer suspected your tint was illegal he could stop you to investigate.

Hard for anyone to answer the fairness question. Who knows, maybe? To the rest of it if you left them a bunch of messages you should be fine. You may want to consult with a local attorney. It is unusual they would supervise you in a different county for exactly this reason. Talk with an...Read more »
You probably should talk to your attorney about this. He could mean a lot of things. He could mean he is running the sentences concurrently. He could mean he is running them both as second offense DUIs. He could mean a lot of things. Chances are they will both be on your record, and chances...Read more »
Jail time is always a possibility, but as Mr. Hall ably states, it is highly unlikely in such a case like this. The key thing is that he has counsel. You should direct, or have him, direct these questions to them. They will have unique knowledge of the CWs case and possible outcomes given the...Read more »
