Have New Zealand Law Questions? Ask a Lawyer Online.
I can call when you are ready but i expect you are looking for bail or a lawyer for court this morning. Can you ring 04(###) ###-####and there will be a lawyer there who can help
There will also be a duty lawyer at court this morning, a free service, who can see both of you and advise what to do
Once you have given your statement to the police, you cannot change this. What you have to do, when this goes to court, is explain to the judge that you didn't understand what was happening because you don't speak English as a 1st language
If this is a situation where you have a problem with a charge of assault from domestic violence, and you do not speak English as your 1st language, you can ask for a court interpreter so that you can explain things to the judge
Does your husband have a lawyer? The lawyer can get him bail, but with domestic violence charges he is not allowed to talk to you. So the quicker he deals with the charges the sooner he can come home
Glad to help
