We moved to Indiana alone. We don't have friends or family that we could live with for a month or so. Are there any loopholes or other ways to get around this?
Does he have extra time to report for home detention? You might not be able to get it resolved today. You may want to see if there are any hotels in the area with cheap weekly rates as a temporary solution.You'll need to see if there is a restraining order that you didn't know about and if there's a way to get it dismissed. Otherwise, he could try to file an emergency petition to get an order from the judge allowing him to use his current residence for home detention. If he had a lawyer help him with the original case, he may want to call him as soon as possible to see if there is anything else he can do.
Yes, they extended it out to October 4, 2013 to give him time to figure it out. So you're suggesting that I contact local law enforcement to find out where this report is, if it is with the DA, and after finding that out I need to see if the DA can get whatever this restriction is removed?
Thank you so much. I really appreciate your time and all of the information that you have supplied.
The attorney that he has on the case is saying that there is nothing that can be done. He is saying that there is no such motion that can be filed for the judge to allow my spouse to use our marital home for home detention purposes.
