Each case's facts will determine if the court finds a reason to let you withdraw your plea. That area of law is complex. You need to retain a criminal defense attorney to examine all the facts and decisions in your case to see if what you want is likely. Your time for challenging your plea...Read more »
I used to be a convicted felon in NJ but I have since gotten my record expunged. I was convicted for felony drug distribution. I have never been convicted of any violent crimes. If my record is expunged in NJ can I legally own a gun in Colorado?
A NJ lawyer will have to advise on whether, under NJ law, expungement of a felony conviction amounts to a restoration of your civil rights. If the answer is yes under NJ law, then I believe you should be perfectly fine in CO. But often times the question of a clear felony record does not...Read more »
It would be important to know what type of case it is. Courts have subject matter jurisdiction over certain subjects so it is not possible to determine what type of case it is based on whether there is a motion to modify some unspecified thing and there were no stipulations filed.
My grandmother has been refusing to let my children be taken from her custody under threat of dhs involvement, since June 2020. The judge in both cases acknowledged my custody order but doesn't know why its not being enforced. HELP
Long story short, I recently had my passport revoked while abroad due to a state felony arrest warrant being issued for me about 8 years ago. During my time abroad, I have filled my US taxes every year, voted in every election (same district that has filled the charges), been registered in the... Read more »
I would approach it this way. I would contact a very good criminal lawyer in the jurisdiction where the criminal action is lodged and abide his advice. If your theory (or any theory) is correct, then you can attack the passport problem once you have your...Read more »

The general statement of things that you have provided here certainly seems unfair and should consult with a lawyer so that they can learn more details about your situation and advise you on your best options/defenses. There is not information in this post to adequately respond to your concerns...Read more »
I feel there was no reasonable cause for an arrest to be made. The statements were false and I did not bother anyone in the building. The charges were dissmised in the interest of Justice. I am wondering if I have a potential case to sue for damages, economic losses, and non economic losses?
Your question does not provide enough detail to analyze whether this would violate the law. If you are an otherwise qualified individual who was not offered the position because of your disability, then you may have a claim under the Americans with Disabilities Act. However, you would not be...Read more »
If you are talking about an FAC and a plea, this sounds like it might be closer to criminal law than maritime law (unless there are facts not mentioned that would be relevant for the Admiralty/Maritime category). Since time is of the essence in your matter, you might have better chances of a prompt...Read more »
I'm sorry for your difficult situation, but freedom of expression is generally something associated with state action on restricting speech, not usually something that applies to private settings. Good luck

Explained that I did not want to go threw a bitter divorce and basically would become victimized in order to make sure my twins had a well... Read more »
Yes, almost all knives are legal carried in the open. Ballistic knives are illegal to own and therefore would be illegal to carry. It's illegal to conceal a knife with a blade over 3.5 inches. CRS 18-12-102.
Various places may restrict weapons beyond the restrictions of state law.
How is this legal, given the fact that Lyft does not disclose the full fare amount to the driver? Drivers are "agreeing by contract" to pay taxes on an unknown amount? How is this even close to legal? If state tax is included, a driver can pay more than 50% of their actual income to... Read more »
It all depends on what is being deducted from the Lyft driver's gross income. If it is something that the employer is required by law to deduct, then most likely the Lyft driver will need to report the gross amount, not just the net amount received by the driver. That of course is true of all...Read more »
The PO is permanent, with 2 violations! The court order is very vague. It states visitation at her discretion. She sneakily took my daughters and moved them 2 hours away from me and my son (Their half brother) and has yet to update her address with the court. I had to locate my children by doing a...

An attorney would have to see the order but it sounds very broad and gives the sister a great deal of discretion. You may want to seek a modification to the order if you would like to propose alternate arrangement.
Depends on their circumstances. Sounds cruel and unusual, but what do they say is the reason they did it? and then what are your damages? It's not something that will just get a criminal case thrown out since it was post-arrest.
There was a dispute at a bar, I was severely intoxicated, detained and ended up with an interference with govt property charge. This happened before I moved to CO. I work at the airport and just lost my security clearance until there’s a disposition and have to go back to Georgia, which I can... Read more »
If I understand you correctly, you were charged in Georgia. If that is the case, you should direct this question to attorney in Georgia. Colorado and Georgia law unlikely to be the same in your situation.
We are defrauded at birth and made a corporation under Admiralty Law.
The registration of live births in America and throughout the former British Empire, most of Europe, is used not to simply record the birth of babies, but to name commercial "vessels" after those babies. This... Read more »
This does not appear to be something the average maritime practitioner dealing with ship collision, ship arrest, Jones Act, cruise ship, boating accident, or salvage cases would know about. A tax attorney might have deeper insight.
Unless you are acting in self defense (acting reasonably against an imminent threat of injury to you or another) and did not provoke the fight, you could be charged with a wide range of offenses, depending on the severity of any injuries inflicted. A simple shove or push that does not cause pain...Read more »
