Criminal Law Questions? Ask a Criminal Lawyer.
I hope this message finds you well, present circumstances excluded. My name is XXXXX XXXXX I am an attorney with over 10 years experience in dealing with matters like you are confronted with currently. I have represented a very large law enforcement agency for over 8 years. It is a privilege to assist you.
As a matter of law and course, you do not have to open the door to a police officer unless they have a warrant. The fact that they did not have a warrant means that you acted completely within your constitutional rights and that your actions cannot be used against you by either the police of your ex.
There is no law in North Carolina or any other state which says you have to open your door under the circumstances without a warrant. This is well settled in the law.
Let me know if you have any other questions or comments.
Best wishes going forward!
