    Domestic charges

    I have three domestic charges from my ex wife. First is domestic assult in the 3rd degree, second is tresspasssing in the 1st degree, and third is driving with a suspended liscence. They are all misdemeanors. Some of these charges are far off from what really happend , but I cant afford a lawyer and she has a really good lawyer. We have a son together and I'm praying that she doesnt make it so I cant see him again. Court is tomorrow please give me some advice on what I should do.

    With such little time before your hearing, there is not much help I can provide as you don't even have time to find a pro bono attorney but you can try calling your local BAR association to see if they can refer you to someone. Otherwise, you will show to show the judge that you have custody or visitation of your son would be in the best interests of your son.

    God Bless you Son. Why did you wait till the last minute? Here is my humble suggestion for a last "ditch effort". Dress up neat and clean in a tie and jacket. Make sure you shave clean. Get to the courhouse early. You will see some Attorneys mulling around (they can be identified by the serious look on their faces and the brief case they are carrying.

    Look for the oldest one with the most beat up breif case. Tell him/her you are in dire need and have no money. With a little luck, he/she will help and get you a stay - buy you time to get a pro bono attorney.

    "Legal's" advice is very good since the most important thing to you is a relationship with your child. The court WILL NOT AND CANNOT sever ties with your child unless you are a pervert which I honestly doubt you are. Good luck and do your best sales work tomorrow.

    They postponed it until 3-13. Do you guys have any idea what will be the outcome of all this? I'm nervous. I've never had any charges against me until this year. It just sucks because her lawyer is a really good one and a year ago I could have got an equally good lawyer. But I'm in the hole and I don't know how to handle this without a lawyer. I will check on the pro bono. But its pretty hard to find one here in Springfield. Thanks for the advice. If you have any more helpful advice please PLEASE let me know. Thank you so much.
