Joseph Kelly Levasseur's answer You need to file a motion in the court that you plead or were found liable for the domestic violence. There forms and the rules are on the courts website and you have to follow the rules carefully and notify the attorney generals office. There is a fee but it is reasonable. There are lawyers that handle this. Joe Prieto in Manchester does a good job and knows the ropes. Good luck!
Hector E. Quiroga's answer Seeking legal counsel who could represent him before the court on the charges against him could help in some way.
Unfortunately your husband’s problem has been compounded by his absence from the US for so long; he’s essentially abandoned his residence. There are ways to regain it; he should visit the US embassy or consulate that has jurisdiction or the area where he lives.
Joseph Kelly Levasseur's answer It may not be fair but it is common practice. if you were found not guilty you can ask for a removal, if that doesn't work then you can ask the court to anul the arrest record.
Joseph Kelly Levasseur's answer No, you do not have to speak with a police officer. The Constitution allows you the right not to incriminate yourself in a criminal matter. I strongly suggest you speak with an attorney prior to going in and speaking with the police. Protect your rights.
Joseph Kelly Levasseur's answer It would depend on the person's relation to the allegation. If someone is simply an alleged witness to the allegation then you would not have to speak to anyone if you did not want to. If it eventually arises to a criminal charge then a subpoena could be issued for a trial, but lawyers and police are reluctant to force someone to come in and testify if they do not want to do so.
Joseph Kelly Levasseur's answer I don't believe this is a civil rights question, just yet, although it may be, if local law enforcement is not protecting you from someone engaged in criminal activity. I really believe you should vo above thier heads. I'm not sure what town or city you live in, but you could, in the short term, contact your elected representative. The mayor, an alderman or selectmen depending on where you live. They can look into this for you and contact the police department and get them more engegaed. You...
Michael Reed's answer It would not fall under the "occupied" section of the law. However, RSA 635:2 states it could be a misdemeanor if another category is met. In your case, it sounds like the challenge would be to a secured structure. The RSA lays out what is classifed as a "secured structure." Any attorney reviewing this would need more information on the building itself to determine if it falls under the broad definition (Fences, signs, notice, etc). I recommend you contact an Attorney to discuss this matter...
Joseph D Garrison's answer It depends on the level of the charge. If she was charged with a Class A Misdemeanor, then she could go to jail. This is highly unlikely based on the facts you describe. Your daughter should consult with a criminal defense attorney asap if she hasn't already.
Joseph D Garrison's answer The answer depends on what you've been charged with. Depending on the weight on the alleged drugs, you could be facing a felony charge which carries potential prison time and high fines. At the very least, you potentially face a misdemeanor charge which could result in jail time and a minimum fine.
Brian Lehman's answer There are two ways you can be banned. First, a court may issue an order restraining where you can go. That did not happen here based on what you wrote.
Second, if the restaurant is on private property, the owner or the owner's agents (perhaps the manager) can tell you not to go on their property. If you do so, then you could be accused of trespassing which might be a criminal or civil violation.
You can choose what you want to do with respect to the "stop going to the...
