Legal Answers
Q. My boyfriend has to go to motion to revoke bond court and my question is how can he be able to get to come back home?
A: He needs to hire an attorney to present his case the the Judge! If he qualifies for a public defender it would be best to reach out to them and make sure that someone has been assigned to his case. I would never recommend for someone to go to a motion to revoke bond on his/her own.
Q. When would the monetary value of a residence be determined for divorce? At the time of separation or divorce
A: The default rule is that an assets value should be determined as of date of filing of a case. That being said, there are exceptions and your should consult with an attorney in your area on this subject.
Q. Hi, my question is, what can be done to aid someone in federal prison whom was approved for released early under the FSA
A: The best thing for this person to do is file a form with the prison where he is currently being held under the interstate agreement on detainers. This will force the State of SC to start the process of bringing him back for trial on the state matter. If the state fails to do so within a certain period of time the State will not be able to proceed on the charges. You can search online for form BP-A0236.
