I had a long tiresome day at work last Saturday I was drinking and I stopped by her job it wasn't intentionally she notified the police because she work at a domestic violence shelter I was trying to see if she needed any help

And she has the PPO out against you?

sir I never put my hands or anything on her this is why I'm only short-term probation and she know that I never will and the and the judge sees that in my character I just made a serious mistake

Okay - I would speak to a local attorney and turn yourself in. I do not think this is a serious violation, but this is a violation. Turning yourself in will notify the court that you understand the mistake and are taking responsibility. If you make the court issue a warrant you will get no credit at all for making good decisions.

how long will I have to turn myself in within 5 days I'm going to try to get in touch with the lawyer to see if I can get someone to help me here locally
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
do you think it would be best if I spoke with my probation officer and have him to turn me in I did let him know what was going on
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
I just don't want to go to jail behind this mistake I made I just need to get some understanding from a lawyer someone who can help me

If you are available a call would be the easiest way to discuss your options.

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.

TonyApopka, FL

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.
