I was sexually abuse when I was little by one of dads brothers. My ex husband knew this and when we would argue he would laugh at me calling me names and saying that I liked what my uncle did to me and blamed me for letting that happen to me when I was only 5 years old. I wanted to just get... Read more »
You should re-post this question except with Personal Injury as the practice area instead of Domestic Violence. It is not usually worth it to sue someone unless they have the ability to pay so it is probably a good idea to include in your question a list of what types of assets your ex-husband...Read more »
Texas convictions can't be expunged unless they are overturned on appeal or pardoned by the Governor of Texas. If your case was in Arkansas then remove this question and re-post it with your location set to Arkansas... even if you are currently in Texas the legal work must be done in Arkansas.
The location on this question is marked "Bixby, Oklahoma" but it is appearing in the forum for attorneys in Texas. If this event did not occur in Texas then please re-post your question in the Oklahoma forum.
The question is marked Criminal Law as well as Personal Injury and...Read more »
Legal how? Do you mean in the issuance or in the execution? Did you actually READ Article 18.02 or is this something you copied from another prisoner? The reason I ask is that this section is about the GROUND for issuance and it doesn't really address any question about the date... and your...Read more »

To win a conviction for Assault - Bodily Injury / Family Violence, the prosecution must prove that she intentionally, knowingly, or recklessly caused painful physical contact.

No, the alleged victim is probably the most important witness. There are, however, several reasons why an attorney should be VERY careful about talking to the alleged victim in a domestic violence case.
Perhaps most importantly is the fact that an attorney can't be a witness in the...Read more »
Probably not, because of the statute of limitations. Moder law allows child abusers to be charged at ANY time, but it wasn't always that way. And once a defendant becomes protected by limitations, later changes to the law can't remove that protection.
There were opposing cases, one case where I was a crime victim and as revenge for filing the charge, the defendant claimed I stole property from them. The case docs where I was the victim, werwre all signed by ADA with correct name (same as state bar has) But the same prosecutor filed the... Read more »

This is not a job for a criminal law attorney or an employment law attorney. Instead, you should focus on finding an attorney who takes Personal Injury cases or "Section 1983" federal civil rights cases.
To answer this question, your friend will need to read the terms and conditions of his probation. If he is not 100% certain (or if he just wants a second opinion) he should consult the criminal defense attorney who helped him on the case or another local criminal defense attorney with an office in...Read more »
