If an officer tells you that a criminal warrant will be issued, it's not likely that the officer is lying. An attorney can help you confirm whether a warrant has been issued.

Q: Why does a serious violent felony not qualify for first offenders on a first offense?
Robbie Levin
Robbie Levin answered on Dec 8, 2020

The legislators who made the law explicitly excluded serious violent felonies from eligibility for the First Offender Act. So, to answer your question... that's how the law was written.

I'm not sure I understand the question. However, you will certainly need a Final Decree of Divorce to finalize the case. You cannot just agree that you are divorced. A Final Decree or Final Order signed by the Judge is required to become legally divorced in Georgia.

When you file a motion, you should get a copy file stamped by the Clerk for your records. Once you have the file stamped copy, if they "lose it", you have proof of the filing.

If he is physically assaulting you, then you need to call the police. You can also file for a protective order and a divorce petition.

Q: My son is being charged w/ Aggravated Assault due to being a witness to a crime that police think he knows the person.

My son went forth on the morning of an incident as a witness to tell the police what he saw voluntarily. They don't believe that my son was in the wrong place at the wrong time. They are assuming he knows the person just because he got away alive. What are our rights?

If your son is charged with aggravated assault, he needs an attorney. It’s one thing to be charged with a crime. It’s much worse to be convicted.

He has many rights... the right to sing the blues, the right to cable tv, & the right to salt & vinegar potato chips.
