My fiancé is wanting me to find out how to obtain a copy of his discovery packet he has no attorney Would this be something that I could do for him and if so what steps do I take and who do I contact if not then who would he need to contact
If he has been designated but he court as acting pro se, then all he needs to do is request it from he DA's office. There may be a nominal charge. If he is in custody, then he should have had a Public Defender appointed to defend him on his charges, and the Public Defender should provide him...Read more »
I agree with David. You need to focus first on the criminal charge. That charge can take away your liberty and your children all at once. I assume the child neglect probably stems from the Possession of MJ with intent to distribute. You need to hire someone who understands the how to defend...Read more »
The question is whether the individuals entered three different dwellings or the same dwelling on three separate occasions. As Tracy said, you need to hire a good criminal defense attorney who will get your discovery (the evidence they have against you) and fight to make sure you are being charged...Read more »
The Mcgirt case already caused the State to recall a felony warrant they had on me. Since they lacked jurisdiction on the other felonies I had that I discharged over 15yrs ago does that mean I can hire a lawyer to file the paperwork to get those felonies taken off my record and essentially not be a...

The real key is how long ago the alleged crime occurred. The Statute of Limitation for most State charges is 3 years and the Statute of Limitations on most Federal cases is 5 years. If you are outside those windows, then by all means you should have an attorney look into filing a McGirt/Murphy...Read more »
My ex and I entered into a temporary visitation agreement. He has is currently supposed to be monitored by his mother to see the kids, but is asking to have the monitored visits lifted. He and his live in girlfriend both were recently arrested for public intox and he was arrested for resisting... Read more »
The public intoxication charge is the real issue. It shows that he is not capable of controlling his addiction. Having him kept on monitored visitation seems reasonable. I would even suggest supervised visitation might be in order. I think an example of greater self control would be needed...Read more »
After I caught my wife cheating we felt it best she move, we split custody 50/50 haven't gotten a "proper" divorce decree, she did not want to take that route. I have always paid 100% of the child care and my daughters insurance on top 100% of our mortgage and home ins. (etc),... Read more »
It is a complex question with a complex answer. It appears as if you have financially supported everyone for a period of time. It also appears that you wife no longer needs you complete financial support. Need is a primary issue when looking at spousal support. Regarding the child support; it...Read more »
My ex husband has informed me that he cannot afford to pay his portion for after school care so he or his mom will be picking up the kids from school and watching them. In our decree he only has visitation 2 days a week after school and he has to pay 60% of childcare costs. He said because there... Read more »
This is a simple and complex answer at the same time. The court order is what must be enforced. If you are the sole legal custodian, then what you say goes. Plus it looks like it is written right in the order, so it really can't be unilaterally changed by him. On the other hand, if he...Read more »
If you are referring to being an Indian from one of the federally recognized tribes, and the crime occurred on Indian Territory; then you need to file a motion that is very specific to those issues. I would not do this yourself. It should not be expensive, but hire wisely.
Once they turn 18 and have graduated high school you should no longer pay child support. If there was never a court order fro child support, then you can just stop paying, but make sure you have and keep all your records in case there is an attempt by your ex to reach back.
In a domesric a and b defendant makes bail but as a condition he is to have no contact with victim . but does anyway until she files a PO that he violates then bonds out on violation. With same bond conditions . and disregards them.
I can't wait to see the police report and interviews on this one. Particularly, I want them to explain how the vehicle was released from impound to you, if you weren't the bonafide owner. Sounds like a great case to fight. If you are in Tulsa or surrounding counties give me a call.
As long as you do not have a violent offense or gun charges, it is possible to get help. Several programs will take people. The key is convincing the DA. The other possibility is community sentencing has a new program which is even taking some violent offenders.
My granddaughter has a P.O. against her ex boyfriend for domestic violence. They have twins together. She wants to enroll them in school. The school insist that the fathers name has to be on the list of who can pick them up.
As the other gentlemen said, it is on a case by case basis and depends strongly on the tolerance level of the judge. I am a firm believer in hiring an attorney sooner than later. Evidence gets stale, alibi witnesses disappear, and speed usually works in your favor. An attorney who can move your...Read more »
He is rude and goes to his girlfriends then comes in and gets in bed with her. She has been sick and her immune is low. Mccurtain county has had 500 caronivirus in the last 2 weeks. They 5 the in the state now by county. Can he not be told to stay away till we can move her. We still have 24 days
I am confused on what the relationship is between your Mom and this guy. I would like to look at the order to vacate, seems funny to me. Seems like she either would have to get out immediately as a trespasser, or she has some possessory rights? I don't think an eviction should stand based...Read more »
He had restraining orders against his ex wife and her family bc she chose her man over her son and she lives with her family who lets their son live with them even tho he threatened them more than once and he touched my brother son and her got a judge to drop the restraining orders
Along the lines of Pete's answer...it is unclear what court orders if any exist. Also, the age the the child may have some effect on things. If the child can communicate and confirm any of the things you have mentioned, then a gradian ad litem would be helpful to make the court aware of what...Read more »
