The court put the kids on foster home and now they gave the parents under supervision for 12 months the 2 other children.

The court may request a home study for the best interest of the child, specially if the child is leaving the NY jurisdiction. I suggest that you schedule a consult with a family law/dependency attorney to answer your questions in detail.

One route is to file an injunction to keep him away from you. Also, if he has an open criminal case, the judge more likely than not, have requested him to be away from you, your house, your place of employment, etc.

It depends. As mentioned above, if it was a withhold of adjudication, and no prior sealed or expunged case, you may be eligible to record sealing or expungement. Contact a Criminal Defense Attorney to help you with the process.

Do you have a case to set the record straight and sue for false records of being accused on the wrong... Read more »
I’m charged with a crime and I believe the prosecution is deliberately giving me more points than I suppose to have by scoring my priors under the 2018-2019 offense severity chart which is giving me more points, instead of using the chart that was in use on my priors.
The calculation is based on priors, severity, and the time of the alleged crime. If you have a Criminal Defense attorney representing you, he should be able to explain it in detail. If you do not have an attorney, I suggest you hire one.
