It's difficult to have a domestic violence matter simply dropped. For a whole host of public interest reasons, most Prosecutors want these cases dealt with in court and in front of a Judge. But, if you had lied or there was a misunderstanding there may be grounds upon which to have the matter...Read more »
Sounds like a petty person that needs time to move on. You can contact the police, they might call him and ask him to stop, but there is not much they can do. You can get a restraining order to prevent him from contact you, but the problem seems that they are contacting others. You can engage a...Read more »
What will happen to her and 1 of the time she got arrested she was out of County and they let her go but this time she caught another charge in County I just don't know what to expect could you tell me an answer
Your question does not make sense, but I can tell at least your Girlfriend needs to hire a competent attorney immediately. Domestic Assault is commensurate with a Felony, and is worse than some. It will be permanent. She needs to find a way to get it Dismissed or Diverted, Dismissed and Expunged.
No. There is no mandatory time on a domestic assault charge in Tennessee. This is a serious charge, however, with serious consequences, such as loss of the right to possess a weapon for the rest of your life in addition to the stigma of such a charge. You should hire an attorney immediately.
The person reporting is under the influence of drugs and alcohol. Domestic related. False accusations of physical violent contact when it was actually the accuser. Accuser is the abuser but, the innocent person may have a previos criminal history mostly non-related to those accusations.
That is a difficult issue; however, it is one that occurs regularly. The accuser does something physical to you then calls the police and states that you have done something to him or her. You may get arrested. It is important to document the details of the situations and have witnesses and...Read more »
I am not sure what you are asking about. But the simplest Cause of Action to obtain your personal, non-real, property, is to file an Action to Recover Personal Property in General Sessions Court. This can often be filed without an attorney, but you must be prepared for any defenses or title...Read more »
Most attorneys will charge a flat fee for the Case which will be several thousand dollars. Some, like myself, will charge a decent fee through General Sessions Court, such as $1,500 to $3,000. If you are indicted then the fee goes up quickly because at Circuit Court alot of research and...Read more »
On Dec 25, 2018 my wife left our home to visit family in KY with a verbal and mutual agreement to return home on the 27th. Long story short sometime on the morning of the 27th she inexplicably decided not to do this and filed for an order of protection alleging violence and abuse. This order was... Read more »
File for divorce, ask for an emergency hearing, get her served with the papers and go to court. you need to establish jurisdiction here in your home county.

It was an incredibly toxic relationship and so many domestic situations happened. When we finally split she told me multiple times I had to take the dog or he would go to a shelter. So I took him. Now, because we aren’t getting back together, she is using him against me. He is in her name, she... Read more »
It is very possible, and you might even get convicted. There is no Title to a Dog, but it is probably not worth the trouble and risk to prove ownership in Court. Bond, Attorneys, Court Costs and Restitution could be very expensive. Many Judges and DA's will feel very sorry for her....Read more »
The answer to all 3 questions is YES. The party seeking the order of protection must prove that there is a real risk/potential for violence or that violence has already occurred and that they are therefore in fear for their safety. Both sides get to testify and present evidence. Both sides are...Read more »
You must immediately hire a lawyer and file a Motion to Set Aside your Plea. It probably will not be granted, but you might get some type of Judicial Discretion to save yourself. Diversion is not an option, and no competent attorney will plead his Client guilty to such a charge.
Tell you teacher or your principal at school about your situation at home. I assume you have already told your mother and she won't help. Your Teacher and principal can help you get to the police or authorities who can help. If you have a cell phone, try to record him making the threats without...Read more »
You should report the threat to your local police. Running away won't solve the problem. Seek advice from friends and family as to how to insure your protection. Ultimately, you should consult an experienced divorce lawyer - it sounds like this relationship is over so the real solution is a...Read more »
This is a public forum and is not appropriate for all questions. Hire a competent attorney to represent your Husband and ask him. Do not be coerced into testifying to things that did not occur as DA's often attempt to get domestic victims to do. It is the State's Case, not yours.
