She is bi polar and shud never have stood trial and any lawyer who spent 5 mins with her wud have known that. Shud she go straight to rehab, call the DA, her PO, or what? Calling her PO hasn't helped with any of this. She and I need help and cannot afford legal defense.
If there is a warrant she needs to go ahead and turn herself in. She can call and find out how much her bond is and arrange to be bailed out immediately. Hopefully a bonding company will help her. Getting into a rehab facility is a smart idea to help minimize jail time and get her some help....Read more »

If there is no will, and the father is not married , and the house is not jointly owned, then the house should vest in the children when he dies. If your wife becomes joint owner she cannot just be thrown out of the house. I suggest talking to an attorney to understand the whole process.
I'm not sure about the statute of limitations. However you may be able to get some fines and costs waived by the court if you are found to be indigent. You will need to get a court date and fill out an affidavit of indigency and ask the judge to waive your costs and fees. Some costs can't...Read more »
My daughter was abused for 2 years. Old scars from being whipped with a belt and scars on her legs from being beaten with a piece of wood. She has face damage that is being addressed. No one has contacted us since, a Domestic Violence Advocate was supposed to contact either me or my daughter, but... Read more »
Nothing right now. Your daughter will need to appear on the court date as the main victim/witness. The domestic assault charge will hopefully be addressed on Sept 10th. If he pleas guilty he will likely be required to do jail time or probation and to stay away from your daughter. He will (...Read more »
Yes, an out of state warrant will get you arrested in another state. It usually happens when a police officer calls in your information during a traffic stop. The police will arrest you and wait for the state who issued the warrant to come get you.
It depends on the details surrounding why they gave you the card and the how long you kept the card. If you were suppose to use it to buy something then you should have given it back to them immediately after the purchase. More information is needed to determine if the facts support a criminal...Read more »
Your bond could be revoked if you personally don't show up to court . It is smart to have an attorney , especially in a circuit court case, but if you don't have an attorney you wont get your bond revoked.
Harassment is an A Misdemeanor in Tennessee meaning you could be sentenced to 11 months and 29 days in jail or probation. However, if the facts you stated are true and you did not communicate with the victim then , in my opinion, the case against you is weak. Harassment requires communication....Read more »
It depends on what the life insurance policy says happens upon death. It will likely go into his estate which means someone will need to open the estate and start the probate process. You should hire an attorney to assist you.
In my face which was not true at all ! & I had stated right then to the police that he didn't do that & they wouldnt listen to me & still said they were giving him domestic violence we already have court in 2 months , & I don't want to press any charges against him at this... Read more »
I'm unsure whether he will be able to bond out but you can call the jail and see if there is a bond. Keep in mind that if he is bonded out he will likely have bond conditions that forbid him from having contact with you (the victim). He will need to hire an attorney to gather all the...Read more »
My son is an alcoholic and has been in residential treatment for 30 days and I was going to evict him but I was told by a paralegal that since he's been gone for 30 days I don't have to evict him that I just don't have to let him back in.
To be safe, I suggest a written 30-Day Notice to evict . If your son remains on the property after 30 days , then you may proceed with the eviction process by filing a Summons and Complaint with the court.
We don’t necessarily live together but I’m always there and I have a key. We were both running upstairs to the apartment which she can attest to this and closed the door in my face and when I tried to run inside the door was locked and it cracked the frame. She then unlocked the door and let me... Read more »
Make sure you save the text messages from her. Take a screen shot of them and save them to a file or print them out. You will need them as part of your defense. I recommend hiring an attorney to fight for you. Your attorney will discuss your case with the DA and hopefully come to a resolution....Read more »
