Legal Answers
15 Questions Answered
Q. search&seizure handcuff husband.they search bedroom in my drawers.kids room without consent did they violate my rights
A: There could be a serach & seizure issue if they did not have a warrant and they did not have another legally authorized reason to be in the house or searching the house. However, if they did not find anything, there is not really any remedy. Call an experienced criminal defense attorney if something was seized or your husband was arrested. If you are wanting to pursue a civil claim against the State for violation of a constitutional right (i.e. discrimination, illegal search and seizure, etc.) then you would need to call a civil attorney.
Q. My wife won't respond to my lawyer so he can file the petition. What do I do now?
A: You can file for the divorce, claim there were 2 children born during the marriage whose identity is not known at this time, request a paternity test (because children born during the marriage are presumed to be the husbands) and then amend pleadings afterwards once discovery/paternity testing is completed.
Q. I was in a car with a friend who was drunk and got arrested --
A: If they have the license plate number or somehow know how to identify the driver/car, the driver and/or registered owner will face the potential for criminal and civil liability. This is a serious situation. If you are a passenger you may also be liable if there was a duty to stop and render aid. You should contact an experienced criminal defense attorney to better advise you.
