San Diego, CA asked in Divorce, Family Law and Domestic Violence for California

Q: What does this mean? the case Has Been Reviewed But Not Issued, . . . charges could be filed later. Is it dismissed?

I was arrested in San Diego for misdemeanor domestic assault last month. I showed up for court and they said No Records Were Found. I went up to the DA office and they gave me a paper that said The case Has Been Reviewed But Not Issued, If additional information is received, charges could be filed at a later date. They said it was dismissed and I was done with the court process. I also want to set up a post-nuptial agreement if anyone can help with that if they are enforceable in California. Thank you.

A: more info is needed.

however, sounds like police presented the case to the DA and the DA has decided not to file it yet...unless further info comes in.

a case can only be dismissed if it is filed and then dismissed.........that is not your case.
