I was charged with a domestic violence that was dismissed.

Hello,I was charged with a domestic violence that was dismissed. During this process I had 4 guns taken by the police dept. After the charges was dropped and I tried to get my firearms back the court and police said I needed to fill out a claim and delivery form to get my guns back. I have since received paperwork from the court a notice to appear and that police department is contesting my eligibility to get my firearms back. Also I am a 19 year veteran of the military that is still currently serving. Is this something that is pretty straight forward since the charges were dropped / dismissed or is this something that I need to hire an attorney for?

I am just looking because I just found out that the police

Hi Pearl - I am just looking for information because I just found out that the police report for the charges of domestic violence against my husband contains some information that I haven't said... And which is aggravating the case. I am new to this country and did not know how far this would go by involving the police. I just want my husband and I if need be to go to counseling and reunite as a family for the sake of our little boy... But I don't know how things will turn since I understand now it is out of my control. Can you help?JA: Since laws vary from place to place, what state is this in? And when did this happen?Customer: California, it happened mid JuneJA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: No I haven'tJA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?Customer: Yes there are also pictures in the police report... They probably don't need me anymore now but I have a good relationship with the victims advocate at the da office and have been explaining from the beginning that I didn't think it was right to send my husband to jail even though at first I didn't want to go back to him. I however now do want to save my family and moreover have found that they exagerated the report and the things I said.

Question to Legal Kal One last question in general -- though

Question to Legal KalOne last question in general -- though I am quite fearful--As a citizen hared by local authorities--I would like to file 7 complaint reports against the Sheriff's Department--Finding an attorney to stand by my side is quite difficult--I am 100% confidant my stance is objective and to fact and would never state any assumption including DA--only my recording that would substantiate three falsified reports-- Do you think Kal if all I state is fact I could take such steps alone.
