Defend yourself against what? You said the officers left without arresting you, and I assume you mean they also did not give you any notice to appear in court. Also, from your description, it does not sound like the type of police case where they will be in on-going investigation to determine if...Read more »

Yes, you probably are legally married. In what state were you married; Florida doesn't have justices of the peace. If it was in another state, a document should have been recorded (perhaps with a clerk of court) there. Check with the appropriate agency in that other state.
Out of my and my families fears, and being turned down 2 times for restraining order. I was granted the motion to move to FL to be close to my mom. However, my eldest (who has special needs) wanted to stay with his grandparents (ex’s parents). Although it was hard, with his history (my son) of... Read more »
I am not sure what your question is. If I understand your ramblings, you should contact Local Law Enforcement and report the allegations that you have concerning this lawyer or anyone who is engaging in the type of conduct that you are suggesting.
Provided the message was not a string of repeated contacts, I wouldn’t think one message classified as stalking or harassment. Good that you blocked him. Stay off IG if you can’t resist the urge to look at his profile.
I have a domestic battery charge against my sister who i live with with my son. I am not able to return home because of the no contact order with my sister. My son is still staying in the house so he can make it to school. I am in dade city fl which is pasco county.
Request your lawyer to file a motion to permit non-violent contact with your sister, who I am assuming is the alleged victim. Your sister should appear for the hearing. It will be up to the judge to determine whether to grant the motion.
Does your sister still want to prosecute the case and go forward? Just because you score does not mean the prosecutor has to offer that you need to speak to your attorney about other options and or hire a new lawyer if you’re not satisfied.
That's how we got the domestic violence case. He just went to jail again recently for a warrant for the domestic violence case. I wanted to know could I write him letters or go see him while he in jail. Or I can't have no contact with him at all. It happened in Haines City Florida

Yes, there is the potential to go to jail if you willfully refuse to attend a hearing or deposition. The general symptoms you describe are serious, but should be discussed privately with your attorney in a confidential setting. There could be secondary consequences to a refusal to give testimony,...Read more »

Whether you may invoke 5th Amendment protections depends upon a reasonable fear of prosecution. If you have such a fear, you need to confer confidentially with a qualified attorney to explore your options. There may be other consequences to a 5th Amendment invocation- such as a dismissal of the...Read more »
My fiancé is a pro se respondent in a child custody case petitioned by an abusive ex-boyfriend. Given the fact that she has an injunction against him for DV, does she have to face him, and his equally intimidating witnesses, alone in the courtroom, or can she appoint a non-lawyer (namely myself)...

My son has a misdemeanor DV battery conviction (10/2018), and a violation of DV injunction conviction (6/2019) both against the mother of his 4 yr old son. He has not had any contact with his son in about 19 months due to this. I was doing some research & I see Florida has a “rebuttable... Read more »
If your son was ever on probation for any of the charges, he should have been ordered to complete a batterer's intervention class and anger management. If he has not completed any of those, he probably should. Also, he may want to consider completing a parenting class. Best of luck!

You need to be ready to present evidence as to why he should have supervised visitation. If there is no relationship then the timesharing would probably start with a reunification plan. You should schedule a consultation with a local lawyer to discuss the details.

You could go to the State Attorney’s Office and make the request. They could listen to you or ignore you. If they prosecute anyway, much of what you’ve just said might be used against you if you try to change or recharacterize your description of events. You could retain an attorney to...Read more »

Although I am sympathetic with your unhappy situation and description of what happened, I am quite sure that the police in Stuart do not arrest people without probable cause to believe they committed some serious crime.
