Legal Answers
Q. Petitioner of no-contact order had me violated for text messages I sent her, but she texted me too before and after then
A: Sounds like you're definitely in violation. Hire a lawyer to help minimize what they do.
Q. The law is “innocent until proven guilty” if there is no evidence except “he say she say” could it hold up in court?
A: The court cannot find anyone guilty with no evidence. However any testimony, including a 4yo, is in fact evidence and they of course can find you guilty of there's enough evidence.
Q. What should I do? Update my license, pay my ticket first? If I update my license, will I possibly get in trouble?
A: You most certainly have a duty to update your license. There are limited exceptions for military/students but the law generally is you must update it within 60 days of moving here. Hire a lawyer to get the case in Virginia reduced or dismissed. That will help with points. But definitely fix the license issue.
