HelloThis is Samuel. Please tell me this Protection Order is in the temporary stages? Was it issued at the request of the District Attorney? Are there criminal charges pending?

The court date are on the 24th of May, there are no criminal charges as of yet, however the sheriffs deputy said that the judge can choose to put out a warrant for my arrest at anytime. It was stated as an Emergency Order of protection because she said she felt like she and the kids were in danger.
Family Lawyer: Samuel II, Attorney at Law replied 2 years ago
Thank you.So your goal at this time is to stop the Temp Order from becoming permanent. And with these type of allegations it will not be easy without a local attorney. However, at the time of the hearing you must appear. If you do not appear, the order will be made permanent in default. At the hearing you are going to have to let her talk. I suggest, you do not respond to her, do not look at her or give the court any indication that you have done what she is going to state you have done. I suggest when it is your turn to talk you should only speak directly to the judge. You will need to discredit her accusations. So you should ask for medical reports of any physical abuse that has been reported about the children.

You also will want to request any police and/or medical reports concerning the abuse she is claiming. This is the only way you can discredit her accusations.

In the end, it is possible the court will make the order permanent, at least until her accusations are investigated by the District Attorney. A judge is always going to act in the best interest of the children and will err on the side of caution.

In any case, you can request the court allow you to enter the home to get your personal needs for every day living.

You certainly could be charged but the DA would need to investigate. Note that you are under no legal obligation to talk to anyone about these accusations. SO if the police or the DA want to question you, you can decline and state you are seeking legal counsel.

I suggest you should at least consider consultation with a local criminal defense attorney as these are very serious allegations. If you are charged, and have no assets and cannot afford a private attorney you could be eligible for help by the Public Defender.
