Andrew L. Bennett's answer If the person is visiting and has no possessory interest in the home and the warrant lists another address then the police cannot force their way in unless they get a new search warrant that lists your address.
Andrew L. Bennett's answer It sounds like you may have a case, I would suggest the 'find a lawyer' feature on Justia to find an attorney in your area that handles suits against police, called 1983 actions. Also be mindful that you have a short window in order to put the department on notice, which I believe is 180 days from the time they raided your house. If you miss the time frame you are precluded from moving forward with your case. Also you should look into an expungement of the criminal case if it was dismissed...
Alexander Florian Steciuch's answer Unless you stipulated otherwise in the lease agreement, you can basically show the house whenever you want, provided that you give advance notice and the hours are reasonable. Having a showing during normal business hours is perfectly acceptable, weekday or weekend. Be nice about the process and recognize that even if you are attempting to show the house or apartment, the tenants are still living there and that it is their home.
Andrew L. Bennett's answer Without knowing more fact and going simply on what you state it sounds like there are some constitutional issues. If this involves you, you should consider having a consultation with an attorney very soon.
Andrew L. Bennett's answer Your options are to ask to speak to the supervisors of the officers or the chief of police. Another option would be to contact the prosecutors office and schedule an appointment to speak with a prosecutor. Have you also contacted the local media?
Paul Stanko's answer The Vice Principal should discuss his policy with the school attorney. If you do get "written up", consult an attorney. While it seems futile to protest the election after the fact, that does not deprive you of the right to peacefully express yourself politically.
Paul Stanko's answer If you were arrested you can expect charges to be filed. Since you talked to a detective before getting counsel, you already made one mistake. Discuss your options with your attorney and follow his/her advice!
Paul Stanko's answer The best thing to do is contact a criminal defense attorney who handles cases in that county. If there is an active warrant, or a pending case, the attorney can help your friend from there.
John Mario Acosta Jr.'s answer Hello Cory. If CPS has an open case they can come and do a home visit. They do not need a warrant to enter they just need an open case file to do so. Now it does have to be during reasonable hours.
Paul Stanko's answer I don't understand why an illegal would seek paternity. Contact a family lawyer and fight it. Your husband is presumed to be the father because you had your child during your marriage.
