Q. need cases to cite concerning no contact order violation because they got married and now he's being held wo bond
A: Hi,

I am sorry but I only practice family law. Your question is a criminal law question. Despite the fact that your friend married the victim, whenever you have a question related to someone being sent to jail, and a bond, it is criminal law, not family law. The only exception would be sanctions for contempt and that is not the case here. In addition, it is very difficult for a non-lawyer to cite cases and apply the law. This is because citing cases is a whole process that is taught in law school and it involves legal analysis which would be involved in applying the law. I would contact a criminal lawyer for a consultation. Good luck, and take care.
Q. How can a judge enter a default judgment in custody case 5 days before pre trial conference?
A: Hi,

I am sorry that your family is experiencing something like this. It appears to be very strange that a judge would just enter a default judgment so abruptly like this. Are you sure that a court date or two was not missed? Normally, the court gives pro se litigants (individuals proceeding without an attorney) lots of latitude to find another attorney or appear to respond to the case. Why did the judge enter a judgment while there was a Pre-trial Conference yet to occur on 10-17-22? There are many unanswered questions and missing facts that prevent me from answering your question. However, your son should be able to file a modification to get some custody of the children or as a grandparent, you should be able to file for visitation or third party shared custody. These cases can be very expensive. Since your funds are limited, you could try contacting Legal Aid of Eastern Missouri or Catholic Legal Assistance Ministry to obtain legal assistance. You can also contact the area law schools to see if they have a clinic that would assist you free of charge. The schools in the area are Washington University School of Law and St. Louis University School of Law. You should be able to google to find these entities. Good luck, and take care. ... Read More
