In order for there to be a valid warrant for him for violation of a protective order then he would have to have been served with a copy of the protective order in the first place. However, just because a warrant would be invalid doesn't mean that one can't exist and he can't be arrested. It should be relatively simple to get the judge to order the warrant withdrawn if he was never served with a copy of the order but then the lawyer will still have to handle the other issues in the case. What I would suggest you do is go to www.Lawyers.com and in the section for Area of Practice type "family law" and print the list. Then create another list for "criminal law" and print that list. It would be best to find a lawyer on both lists because while it is a family law matter it is actually much closer to a criminal law situation.

If you received an email regarding a phone call for an extra price that comes directly from the website and not from me. I don't take part in the telephone program and only work through this format and in your case this format should be sufficient.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
