I just received a criminal subpoena in the mail in

I just received a criminal subpoena in the mail in California to testify for the prosecution as a necessary witness. I will be out of the country on the date I'm supposed to appear. I CANNOT miss this trip. Not sure what to do. I've read a few articles that say if I don't contact the sender with my information then I haven't actually been served & the subpoena isn't valid. Is that actually true?

I was in family court today and the opposing lawyer lied to

I was in family court today and the opposing lawyer lied to the judge. The scenario is such, my lawyer could not make it today, I went in with opposing party to get an adjournment date. The opposing lawyer took this opportunity to say to the judge that I have not submitted any paper work to my lawyer, which is an out right lie. The judge actually got angry with me. I feel this is perjury, or similar, that the opposing lawyer can say a lie and have the judge have a bias against me. I want this rectified so the judge does not have a bias against me. What can I do?

City of West Allis, Wisconsin Spouse received a citation for

City of West Allis, WisconsinSpouse received a citation for DC with a weapon. He pleaded not guilty and has already met with the Assistant DA where it was not resolved. A trial date has been set.Asst DA refused to give any more than five minutes of her time. Told him she had too many other people to see, said "end of discussion" and walked out.Spouse cannot afford an attorney for a trial. He is on disability. I work though, so not sure if we would qualify for a free public defender or something like that.What should he do now? Since a trial date has been set and I am told that the date cannot be changed because they now have already started the process of sending out summons to the officers and other parties. What if other parties do not show up? Is it too late to just pay the original citation and make this go away?

My 17 year old daughter is due in court in 2 days 221.10-UPM

My 17 year old daughter is due in court in 2 days for a 221.10-UPM charge (first offense). Up until yesterday, I was under the impression that this is no big deal. We were told by friends, counselors and police officers to just show up and pay the fine. But as I was researching this on line as the date is rapidly approaching, some questions came up. I don't want to hire a lawyer and pay outrageous fees if not necessary, however, I of course want to do right by my daughter and protect her future. First of all, her first name is ***** ***** the ticket and we were told this may warrant an immediate dismissal. Secondly, do we plead guilty? Or request an adjournment contemplating dismissal? I was going to bring in a letter from her rehab counselor showing she's in the program and has been doing excellent, with clean tox screens for a while now. She has totally straightened out. I have read that if she is on "probation" for a year until case is sealed, we may have a problem getting student loans. She also just got her learners permit and I'm not sure if any issue will come up based on this. I am not sure what to expect as I've never been to court before. Can you answer my questions and give me some guidance about how to handle the court date? Thank you.
