A: MORE INFO NEEDED..........HOWEVER I ALWAYS SUGGEST YOU TALK TO A LAWYER IN YOUR COMMUNITY ASAP....AND NOT TALK ON AN OPEN FORUM LIKE THIS.

GENERALLY IT IS BEST TO BE COOPERATIVE BUT, EXPLAIN THAT YOU WOULD BE GLAD TO TALK TO THEM BUT YOU WANT TO CONSULT WITH A LAWYER FOR PERMISSION...................THAT WAY YOU ARE STILL A GOOD GUY SO TO SPEAK.

A: You do not have to answer the door or speak to the person from the DA's Office. If they have a warrant for your arrest or to search the residence, they are able to arrest and/or search. But you always have the right to remain silent and invoke your right to an attorney, and you should always invoke those rights in abundance of caution. You can always contact an attorney to have that attorney find out what they want.

A: No. You do not have to open the door to police, or their representatives, without a warrant.
