Yes. You can always dispute alleged grounds for divorce. The party that asserts grounds for and seeks a divorce or other relief bears the burden of proof. However, you must timely answer, in writing, denying that grounds or a particular ground exists or you may waive your right to contest the...Read more »
This doesn't seem to be a question. However, be mindful that medical negligence causes have a short statute of limitations and most lawyers are unable to commit to a case until a good bit of investigation is done. So talk to an attorney and pursue your case as soon as you can.
I have received my motions of discovery. My name is xxx. And that has been correct for most of the documents. But randomly xxx pops up. Even stating that "xxx is the biological father of [child name]". There is also supposed to be a physical description of me but it's to vague and... Read more »
Generally, the answer is no. Unless there is a genuine issue as to the identity of an individual in a report, document, etc., the misspelling or incorrect use of a name is considered a misnomer and will not affect the use of the documents or the outcome of a case.
My sister got in trouble for something and police arrested but but as they did they didn’t read her rights at all. She got them read to her the first time a day and a half later at her bond hearing. What happens to the stuff they have on her and the charges?
Miranda Rights are only required when a person is in custody (not free to leave) and is being interrogated by law enforcement. The typical remedy for a Miranda violation is prohibiting the government from using statements made by a defendant against her in a trial or court proceeding.
No. It depends upon what act you were sentenced under. There is a statute that one may be sentenced under that, in theory, does not amount to a judgment and, therefore, when one satisfies the conditions of the sentence it is dismissed. This is not used in most cases but it is used in drug courts...Read more »
Yes, Arkansas has such laws. The primary focus is upon the disparity of earning power between divorcing spouses. There are several other factors a Court will consider as well. Fault is NOT one of those factors.
I do not believe that it would be wise to do so without getting the advice of an attorney who is fully aware of the facts of your husband's case. The accused has a right to remain silent. You are not obliged to possibly prejudice his case.
A motion for an "Act 3" review is a request that a person charged with an offense is interviewed by a mental health professional to determine if the person charged is mentally fit to proceed in a criminal case.
Once the State has charged a citizen with a crime, it is the State that has the power to dismiss the charge or, of course, the court for various reasons. The "victim" cannot dictate that a charge be dismissed but may persuade a prosecutor to dismiss a case. Many prosecutors do not like to...Read more »
Can a police officer have a no contact order with him when investigating a domestic violence report and can he arrest a person and make them sign the order before he incsrcerates. And have the judge signed the order before he books the defendant?
No. This is not a "sure sign" of neglect but it is a sign to watch for other things that suggest neglect. That is: first, listen to your Father (if he is able to communicate); next, watch for bruises, weight loss and generally signs of abuse; finally, increasing bed sores, infection(s)...Read more »
I have 2 traffic violations in 2 cities with failure to appears stacked on them now. The reason i didnt pay was because i was termonated from my employer now I have multiple fta's in both city and arrest warrants. I just wanna restart!!
You need to have an attorney arrange for you to appear in each Court and surrender on the warrants. You may be able to set up a time pay if you are guilty of the underlying offense and plead guilty to them.
If you get stopped by police you may be detained with those warrants outstanding.
And 14 counts of fraudulent use of credit/debut card $100 in 6 months and 2 counts of theft by receiving $2500 or more what kind of sentence is she facing and will she b ordered not to leave the state. And will her bond b high since she is from Louisiana with no ties in Arkansas all felony charges
I would not venture a guess as to your friends exposure to incarceration without more facts. However, theft by receiving greater than $2,500 value is a class D felony generally. It has a potential for imprisonment for 0-5 years and/or a $10,000 fine.
Yes, that is certainly possible. I would need more information before I suggest what lengths to go to for an investigation. I will assume that you have some reason to believe that there are circumstances that may amount to either abuse or failure to take proper care. If you are the guardian of the...Read more »
