Is it okay for them to let him have his DL? And not charged to get out of jail? I usually know that they take your driver license away and you gotta pay a fine but he didn't? I just wanna know if these actions are correct.
Good afternoon, my boyfriend and I want to get married but I was born in the U.S and he was born in Mexico. We want to know where the process would be faster and easier to get married and have him be able to enter the U.S. Hes currently in school and were both 20 years old. He doesnt have any type...

That is a loaded question. Where married is a matter of convenience and a personal preference, not necessarily one of immigration. If you were married, you could choose to go with the IR/CR (I-130) visa route and file a 601A waiver, under the assumption that he is not here legally. But without a...View More
This is a general question. You might be okay, you might not. It depends on whether your brother has been served and violated the OoP. It depends on what the OoP is for? Is it something stemming from a domestic violence incident, etc? In order to accurately answer the question, more...View More
This is a very generic question. The short answer is, likely yes, but the charge will differ depending on what she forged your name for. The State's Attorney's Office in any given county is the one you charges people.
Lots of ways to get a search warrant. Although, I can't discuss the entire intricacy of how cops/prosecutors obtain a search warrant, I can tell you that a local criminal defense attorney may be able to help you either quash or suppress the evidence from the warrant. No evidence means no...View More
So my boyfriend was at school. He was joking around with one of his friends. This random guy came up to him and started punching him. He has a head injury and a broken nose. He told me that there is a 95% of him going to jail. Will this happen?
I would agree with my colleague. First step is determining fitness to stand trial. Second step is determining whether a specific insanity defense would work. He should consult a local criminal defense attorney to help mitigate any of the potential consequences, as attempted murder is a serious...View More

The Judge ORDERS conditions of Bond. One of the conditions, is generally to remain drug and alcohol free. If he bonded out but violated a condition of that bond, he could be in jail until trial. It could also be that a new bond amount was set when he (re)entered jail. It might be possible to...View More
The State is allowed to offer anything or nothing on any plea deal. They state frowns on people who commit crimes with previous criminal backgrounds. I would consult with a local criminal defense attorney to find out whether this deal is correct/good/appropriate, etc.
Anything the Court ORDERS you to do, you should complete. I assume it was revoked because you were charged/committed a crime or didn't follow the Court's ORDERS during probation. It might be a sign of good faith to the prosecution as well. You should consult with a local criminal...View More
If you were part of some deferred action or diversion program, you may be immediately eligible for sealing/expungement. If you received court supervision, and completed successfully, you may be eligible for sealing/expungement within two years. If you received some other disposition (Conditional...View More
Impossible to determine based on the present facts. The State's Attorney's Office in every county in Illinois makes charging decisions. So yes, it is possible they could charge you. Whether they do, is up to the State's Attorney's Office.
I have a "operation of uninsured vehicle" ticket that I'm trying to pay but it doesn't show up on the cook county website. How can I pay for the ticket, can I get in trouble if I go to the DMV to get a replacement license
You need to go to Court first and figure out what is happening on this case. If you can show that you had insurance then, the prosecutor may be willing to dismiss the ticket. If you can show insurance after the fact, the prosecutor may be willing to adjust the ticket.
Generally speaking yes, but there are limits and other rights provided to you in Illinois. In order to determine whether it falls within the limits and any additional legal rights you would have, requires more facts and a consultation with an attorney.
She locked me out my house a couple days ago for hours until I eventually called the police then when the police came she tried to say I didn't live there an I had been banned off the property for months the cops checked the house could tell I lived in the room but most of my stuff in it was...

The State's Attorney's Office in any given county in Illinois is responsible for making charging determinations. Cops can make some initial determinations, but ultimately, the discretion lies within the prosecutor's office.
