I agree with my colleague below in that this is quite an issue to unpack and work on. You need a local lawyer familiar with your probate court as the remedies used in this matter are on the far end of the spectrum and they had better have been justified. So there is more to this issues that...Read more »

I was sentenced under the first offenders act a few years ago and was more recently arrested for maximum limits + reckless driving (first offense). Is it likely I could have my probation and First Offenders revoked?
I need advice on a rather unfortunate situation that I got into recently. I had too much to drink prior to visiting six flags. Upon arrival, they asked that a ticket be presented. Though I have a season pass (so I could basically get in at anytime), I did not produce a ticket and a... Read more »
Cobb is pretty easy and you should be fine. It will help you to get a lawyer to smooth the path. You can DIY this, but a lawyer will make it a lot easier and less scary. Lots of local lawyers will charge you between 1-5K for a case such as this. We do them all the time .
You should get credit for every day you spend incarcerated on a particular matter. The clerks office and DOC struggle with the math sometimes as it gets vey complex. You may want to get a lawyer to review if there are issues, as generally a motion can correct any errors.
Waaaayyy to much to unpack. This is a very serious charge and you do not "need" catastrophic injuries for what you are facing. You MUST get a lawyer if you can afford one. The State can make a mountain out of a molehill and with what you are facing it is going to be the fight of your life....Read more »
It sounds like a warrant application hearing. In Georgia anyone can swear out a warrant application in magistrate court, and a hearing is convened within 30 days. At that hearing the person who brought the warrant has to establish probable cause to a judge that one or more crimes has been...Read more »
All depends on which judge she draws, where she is held, what got filed on her behalf, etc etc. She should have an advocate assigned. YOur other option is to find a private immigration lawyer to address her individually.
All depends. White collar crimes are an odd duck. Some local jurisdictions go whole hog on them and go for broke, others are a guaranteed "probation and restitution." The facts surrounding the theft matter heavily. So does the method of theft.
By sleeping in the parking lot to watch who goes and comes from my house, he's video recording me, texting and calling when I have asked him not to, knocking on my bedroom window early in the mornings. Can he be charged with stalking even though the lease is in his name?
Yes. You can be charged with stalking a whole bunch of different ways. Even if you’re still married you can be charged with stalking. You need to talk to a detective in your local jurisdiction as well as some resources for family violence and domestic violence victims. You have a lot of options....Read more »
All depends on a lot of facts and context. The jurisdiction matters as well. Most times a shoplifting is minor, but they get REALLY serious at times, especially if she has a job where trust is involved as shoplifting is a crime of moral turpitude. Best bet is to get a local lawyer to assist....Read more »
Striking a fixed object is NOT a felony. It may not have even been reported. Pull a copy of your Drivers Record from https://dds.georgia.gov/ and it will show exactly what was recorded. I do not see this single incident precluding you working as a livery driver/Uber/Lyft etc.
