Are you wondering about getting custody of your children. Where are they now?
Well the point is you need to show that you can provide for the children. If you have not been convicted, then there is nothing they can hold against you.
If you can show that you provide for the children then that is what will be important. You need to show your lifestyle and that of the children
If you are having problems providing for the children, then the court will consider that. It will always consider what is in the best interests of the children. However, it does not mean that if you lose custody you would not get visitation and then custody again once you got a job
I see. Very good. I was only giving an answer to you comment that you had no job
As I said, if they are in a stable home, then you should have no problems
Are you now on the theft charges? How long ago were you charged? You had an arraignment, released on bond or your own recognizance?
I see. Well, you should have heard something by now. You might want to consult with a Public Defender and see if that is possible. Of course, there is no statute of limitations now that you have been charged. So the state only needs to rush if you Motion for a Speedy Trial.
Alright. I see. Thank you for that information. Do you have another question?
You can go to the Public Defenders office in your county. They are usually located in the court house. But you can call the court house to see where that office is. Schedule an appointment, fill out the eligibility forms and then have then review this case. Find out why it has not proceeded. It may also be possible to file a Motion to Dismiss based on inactivity.
Yes, as you stated previously, you hope the case was dismissed.
