A: HOV infractions can have many defenses and punishments. Seek legal advice.
Q. Can a dismissed felony be reopened and brought back to trial? (Less than a year has paced since incident)
A: The true question is whether jeopardy has attached to the original charge. You should contact an experienced criminal law attorney and discuss these issues to determine the correct answer.
Q. I was rear-ended but was driving below the speed limit at the time. Will that limit my chances at recovering costs from
A: Virginia still applies a contributory negligence standard to personal injury cases. These types of defenses by the insurance companies are very fact and case specific. You should contact an experienced personal injury attorney to discuss your claim. Feel free to contact my office if I can be of further assistance. Thanks. Mike.
Q. Hello! I have joint custody of my son with his father which lives in MD, Read below... What should I do next???
A: The corporal punishment issues will arise in Virginia and Maryland. However, you can always file for a modification of custody in Virginia provided certain elements are met. You should contact an experienced family law attorney to help you though these complex matters. Please feel free to contact me if I can be of any further assistance. Thanks. Mike.
Q. What is the fine for driving without a license in Virginia
A: The fine and punishment is dependent upon what code section you were charged under. If you have a valid drivers license but did not have it on your person that is much different then if you were charged with Driving on a Suspended License. You should contact an experienced criminal law attorney to discuss your matter. Please feel free to contact my office if I can be of further assistance. Thanks. Mike.
Q. When the other parent is granted temp custody, do they still have to pay support until the final hearing?
A: The Court can make a temporary award of child support in addition to the temporary custody ruling. Absent there being a court order requiring the payment of temporary child support there is no obligation to pay support. You would only have to pay support if the court has ordered a support amount. If child support is also a matter to be determined by the court, the court may order that child support be made retroactive to the date of the initial filing for support. If the court determines that child support is owed and makes it retroactive to the date of filing, you could be in a situation where you are not required to pay monthly support on a temporary basis while the case is pending but you might be ordered to pay an amount in arrears once a final determination of child support is made by the court. You should contact an experienced family law attorney to discuss these matters in more detail. The answer to your question can vary depending upon what matters are currently before the Court and what Orders have been entered by the Court. Feel free to contact my office if you need any additional clarification. Thanks. Mike.
Q. My sister is getting ready to have a baby in a month and she wants to sign full custody over to me how easy is that
A: With both parents agreeable to you having custody of the child you have several options. Adoption, an agreed custody order or guardianship are just a couple of the options available to you. Each of these options have advantages and disadvantages. Contact an experienced Virginia Family Law Attorney to discuss these options. You may also feel free to contact me if I can be of any further assistance. Thanks. Mike.
Q. Code of Virginia § 4.1-308 - Drinking in Public in Prince william county , what is the cost charge?
A: The code section you have been charged with is a class 4 misdemeanor. If convicted, you could receive a maximum fine of $250.00 and have a misdemeanor conviction on your record. I typically charge flat rates for misdemeanor criminal matters and this type of charge is at the bottom range of my fees. Please feel free to contact my office if you need any further assistance. Thanks. Mike.
Q. I have physical custody of my children, the father has visitation rights. A incident accurred where the father had the
A: Child Custody, Visitation and Support are always modifiable by the Court so long as you show that there has been a material change in circumstances from the last Order entered and that the Modification is in the Child's best interests. If these alleged facts are true you would have a very strong argument to request the Court Modify the current visitation and you could ask the court to terminate all visitation or require supervised visitation. I strongly urge you to retain counsel and request the Court Modify/Terminate visitation with the Father.
