Family Law Questions? Ask a Family Lawyer Online.
Hello. My name is ***** ***** I would be happy to help you. Is your son a minor? If he is, you have (had) the right to be in the room while he was being questioned. If he is an adult you would not have that right. Clearly he has spoken to the police without an attorney. Unfortunately, the police don't have any obligation to "keep you in the loop." But, as you stated you will have an attorney shortly and that attorney should keep you informed of everything that's going on in the case. Please let me know if you need any additional information a but, as you stated you will have an attorney shortly and that attorney should keep you informed of everything that's going on in the case. Please let me know if you need any additional information.
thank you for clarifying. What was done in your particular case was correct. Because the matter involved another family member (basically, the complaintant) they couldn't have you presents when they were questioning him and they wouldn't be required to give you any information. Under the circumstances the attorney would in fact be doing something very wrong if he told you what your son said to him. I honestly wish I could provide you with better news than that. Unfortunately, because you are technically on different sides of this matter keeping you in the loop just wouldn't be possible. But, you can still talk to your son – unless there is a restraining order or something along those lines preventing you from doing so and he, if he chooses to can provide you with information. Please let me know if I have answered your question and if so you're positive ranking would be appreciated.
I think, unfortunately, this is a tough situation since your spouse is involved and since you were not present in the room when he originally gave his statements - to police or to an attorney. Because your son has an attorney that attorney would be violating privilege by talking to you about what your son said. It's unfortunate that you were not in the room when the police spoke to your son because you legally would have had the right to be there. I truly wish I could give you better news. I understand that this is a really tough family situation. Is he living at home Now? If he is you are well within your rights as your son's mom to talk to him. He can tell you anything that he wants without any sort of restrictions that an attorney has. This certainly sounds like a family dispute that has spiraled out of control and now there are quite a few extra people involved which makes it tougher to resolve. Your husband may wish to consider getting an attorney if he is concerned about what this situation could have on his rights as well. I hope I have answered your questions.
