Customer Question
I just learned there...

I just learned there is a warrant out for my arrest...I'm in Texas and the warrent was filed in Illinois...seems my daughter claims I raped her...this is not true...what can I do?

Lawyer's Assistant: Since laws vary from place to place, what state is this in? And when was the warrant issued?

It's an outstanding warrent ...

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

No...I'm 78yrs old and just learned of this tester day.

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

Yes..I'm innocent of this...because I didn.t give her the money she wanted she said she would get even

Thru a relative back in Illinois called me last night.
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
No sorry I can't afford that.
Lawyer: LegalKnowledge, Attorney replied 7 months ago

Thank you for the reply. Even though the allegations are false, you still need to answer to the charge and the burden is on the State, to prove the charge against you, beyond a reasonable doubt. If there is a warrant, you will need to retain counsel and likely turn yourself in and post bond, so you can be released. This would need to be fought and you need to go through the process but the first step is to be served with the warrant and turn yourself in, so it can begin.

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

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.

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
