Hello. My name is XXXXX XXXXX I will be glad to help you.
Are you online with me?
Welcome to JustAnswer.com
I am sorry about this unfortunate situation.
Is your husband charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon against you?
Unfortunately, under such circumstances the court would generally not lift an EPO until the criminal case is concluded!
You are both charged with felony aggravated assault with a deadly weapon?
Are you also criminally charged?
Unfortunately, the EPO will likely be renewed and will not be lifted until the case is concluded.
Especially given the seriousness of this felony domestic violence charges.
Unfortunately, if either one of you violate the EPO, it is likely that the court will revoke bond for both of you for violation this court ordered EPO and both of you would be ordered to be incarcerated until the case is concluded.
I understand, but unfortunately the law is clear on this issue and there are not many legal options, unless the charges against both of you are dismissed.
I understand, but the court top priority is the safety of both of you.
Were your children removed from your custody?
You would both have to hire experienced local criminal defense attorneys and have your attorneys represent you in your pending criminal case, as the charges against both of you are extremely serious and if convicted each one of you can face 2-20 years in prison and a fine of up to $10,000.
I am not really sure is you understand the seriousness of this serious felony charge?
Also, unfortunately, it is not an option for either you or your husband to drop this charges and the prosecutors are very aggressive when it comes to prosecuting domestic violence related charges, especially such serious charges.
It is not that simple.
You cannot hire the same lawyer.
It would have to be different lawyer for each one of you.
Also, hiring a lawyer doesn't mean that the charges would be dismissed.
Your local criminal defense attorney will have to review your entire case and all the evidence and will advise you of the best way to proceed.
Does this make sense?
But the charges are extremely serious, were there weapons involved??
Well, that alone can be sufficient for the prosecutors to seek conviction.
