6 Questions Answered
- Q. Does a verbal custody agreement hold any weight in the state of Utah?
- A: Your question is a little confusing. You ask if a verbal custody agreement colds any weight, but then you state that the judge instructed you to go back to the original custody agreement. That agreement would be in writing. To answer the last part of your question is that (assuming there is a current court case) you have to file an Order to Show Cause (OSC) An OSC is when the parties go before the judge and the one party who is not doing what they're supposed to has to explain to the judge why they are not following the court order and explain why the judge should not hold them in contempt. You could try to do this on your own, but your best bet is to contact an experienced family law attorney.
- Q. What should I do about my no insurance ticket?
- A: Without knowing all of your facts, it sounds like the court revoked your plea in abeyance. If you are still going to court I would ask the prosecutor what the status of your plea in abeyance is. See if the court would be willing to reinstate it (it is a long shot given how old the ticket is). But the DMV could still require you to carry SR22 regardless of the status of the criminal case. The DMV is a civil matter and separate from your "criminal" traffic ticket.
