Customer Question
My husband just got...

My husband just got seven papers to appear in court Jan 24th for a dv assault in the 4th for an argument that took place Dec 21st I believe. He was never arrested and we thought it was dropped. Wil he be arrested when he goes to court? Will he get a no contact order?

Lawyer's Assistant: Since laws vary from place to place, what state is this in? And when did this happen?

Washington state asotin county

Lawyer's Assistant: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?

No we just woke up to cop knocking on the door with papers...

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

We just don't know what to expect. I remember writing a statement but I don't think I said he hurt me just broke some things in house.

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.
