We were separated physically, but not yet legally. Can the spouse sell/refinance the house without the other persons knowledge? And conceal that they did that and hide the money? Criminal theft? Fraud? Domestic violence is also an issue. He took $88K
You need to file for divorce and either you or your counsel will need to carefully review all financial documents disclosed. Not sure why the house is only "titled in one name." If that means that the house was a premarital asset or that you signed a quit claim deed surrendering your...Read more »
I was arrested for first time in my 61 yrs for assault of police, resisting arrest, and disorderly conduct.

From your facts I do not see a §1983 cause of action. But Diversion is usually the best disposition. Prior to the plea you will want to talk to an experienced attorney who knows how to file a Government Tort Liability Action. Again I would not file the suit as it is not a perfect...Read more »
I was once arrested in Fort Stewart, GA but the case was dismissed. I have 3 background checks currently pending, my Secret clearance, Security G license, and to background for my weapon. Is this possible after two years to be on my records?
The short answer is yes. Often times when this happens, you must file a petition to restrict/expunge the arrest. Now that the laws have been changed, when a case is dismissed, the restriction is usually automatic. However, if you have an older arrest from several years ago, it may still show.
There is no law that states that you may not receive a bond if on felony probation at the time of the new charge. In my experience, many judges will place emphasis on the new charge. Specifically, whether it is a felony or misdemeanor. Also, many magistrates will deny bond as a matter of course...Read more »

This is also shared with the defendants lawyer. The list shows my name & address. Is there anything I can do? I've tried... Read more »
Witness protection can have different meanings and different levels of protection. The DA's office should have a "victim's advocate" or something similar. It is usually the task of that unit or person to handle your concerns. If that is not...Read more »

Was able to clean out all bank accounts that had my money in it as well as a house that he purchased from selling our house after our divorce, how can he get her accounts frozen so he can get his money
Your ex's father HAD a power of attorney. But POAs don't survive the death of the principal (your ex). It doesn't appear that your ex father-in-law has any right to the bank accounts, other than possibly as an heir of his son. But he should seek advice from an attorney.
She most definitely needs to get with an experienced criminal defense lawyer, considering that she is indicted as a habitual. These types of cases hinge entirely on whether the person 1) knew that the gun was nearby, and 2) had control over the gun. I would highly encourage you to reach out to a...Read more »
