What do I need to do before a trial? Everything needs to be "turned in" by the 12th. What do I need to file or give them?
I'm going to court May 1st fighting cps allegations.I do understand why cps was involved in my situation but do not agree with them removing my children.The removal is completely based on my 4 month old having a positive meconium test for adderall after I gave birth.I recently looked into the test and spoke with the lab.The test was not confirmed and had no chain of custody.The lab only does clinical testing and says right on the test for clinical use only.Also the test detects drugs all the way back to 16 weeks of pregnancy.I did not know I was pregnant until 20 weeks and did not see a doctor until then.They said it is possible for drugs to pass from milk to the baby and show up in the test that way.The doctor said breastfeeding on adderall was safe so I took adderall and was breastfeeding 24 hours before they took the sample.I have a prescription now and take drug tests.I feel these are all good points but no one wants this costly jury trial and with pressure to get me to plea from the judge my lawyer wont do much.Here there is no legal help center or advice from law students.If I lose my kids wont come home for a year.I'm basically preparing for this by myself and I'm terrified.
My advice would be to not try and undertake this on your own. Speak to your current lawyer and stress how important...
I need a lawyer to help with my driver license restoration after my second D.U.I. in Michigan. I live in California now. Help?
My license has been revoked in Michigan since January 1st 2015, I have met the 1 year requirement on January 1st, 2016. I have maintained nearly 11 months of sobriety since I went to rehab on December 11th. My treatment center is in Orange County, California. I ended up getting a job immediately after leaving treatment in March with 90 days of sobriety & staying here. I have been able to pay rent consistently and on time at the sober living facility I am currently staying at. I'm even getting ready to move into a management position at my job. I am currently "UBER-ing" back and forth from work and I am willing to do anything to get my license. I was under the assumption that because my license was revoked in Michigan that it wouldn't affect my application in California, but they denied me this past Friday, 10/28/2016, and said there was a hold on my license. I am willing to do whatever it takes to get my license back. If there is anyone with any advice I would greatly appreciate it. From what I understand I have to go to a hearing and plead to get my license back with a bundle of evidence including 3-6 notarized letters, a substance abuse evaluation test, among other things.

If my driver's license is revoked in Michigan due to my second D.U.I. will I be able to get a license in California?
My license was revoked for a year due to my second D.U.I. in that period of time, I moved to California. When my time was up, I called the Secretary of State in Michigan to attempt to reinstate my license, however, they told me I'd have to go through a lengthy administrative hearing, and possibly fly back to Michigan to appear. I have been told from a number of semi-reliable sources that because Michigan is not a part of the interstate compact that I would be able to get one in California. Out of the sources that have told me that, some have told me to retake the entire driving test as if I have never had a license before, while others have told me simply to show them my Michigan driver's license and say I want a California one. (Yes I still have the plastic MI license. It's a long story.) I just want to know for sure what my best course of action should be. Any advice would help!
Your best course of action is to clear up your license in Michigan.
Order to appear 3 years after incident
I was in an accident over 3 years ago. Last week I was mailed an order to appear regarding the charge of DUI. At the time I was over the limit and needed some medical attention. I was never arrested. Now I'm being asked to report to be booked and appear at an arraignment. I'm freaking out now. My life has changed so much in the 3 past years and I don't even know what to do now if I'm facing a serious sentence. Do I have any case for getting this dismissed?
There is no 3 year statute of limitation for pursuing criminal charges if that is what you are asking. You need to...

Will I get Jail Time For A DUI With a .13% BAC?
I was going home after leaving the bar and i bumped the curb i'm pretty sure i didn't hop it, i was pulled over not long after that by a local sheriff's deputy and a state police officer. I was told someone had called and reported me but judging by the time it took them to get there it wasn't reported at all. I passed the majority of the sobriety tests including the alphabet and following the officers pen but i could not perform the balance tests, which i told the officer i've had balance problems and can provide documentation stating so. How should I prepare to go to court with the stated information and will I be facing jail time? Also this is my first offense in the state of michigan.
First off, you should consult and contact an attorney about this case. There may be some things that can be done in an...
