Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
I certainly understand the situation and your concern. Yes, your attorney does have an obligation to keep you up to date on the status of your case. If this just recently happened, your attorney can try and speak with the State to see if they are going to file charges, based upon the report and what allegedly happened. They may decide there is not enough to proceed on and close this out. Now, if they do file, then you will need to fight this, if nothing happened. Your attorney will make a demand for discovery and the State will turn over all the evidence they have and will use at trial. Your attorney can then depose her and gather more facts and evidence, to use at trial, to attack and discredit her. If there is a no contact order in place and she contacts you, you want to keep a record and document this and possible report it, so that she does not turn it around and use it against you.
