Family Law Advice: Avoid Making These Mistakes

Thursday, October 06, 2016

Every day, men all across the country look for information and advice after they have been served with divorce papers or any other family legal law matter. This is very important because getting the right information at the right time can make a huge difference in the outcome. It is important for men to make the right decisions in these matters.

When your case is taken to family court, it is important that you do your best to avoid some of the biggest mistakes you can make:

Listening and Believing Bad Advice

If you have friends or family members who have been through the same thing you are going through, you may feel you can just get all of your advice from them and you will know everything you need to. However, sometimes the information you get from other people may not always be correct.

Every case is different and laws are not the same in every state. While they may be giving you some advice to help you because they love you and care about your situation, your advice should come from a professional who has experience dealing with cases like yours.

Agreeing To Something You Do Not Intend To Carry Out

If you have been asked to sign something you do not agree with, you should definitely not sign it. If you like the agreement and can do everything in the agreement; you should sign it, especially if your lawyer has given you the proper advice. If you do not comply with the orders of the court, you may face jail time.

Giving Up

We know how difficult it can be to just become so angry that you no longer want to deal with the family law proceedings or the discussions with the other parent. As difficult as it may be, you will need to have patience. Do not stop until you are heard. You have rights as well.

Warrant Recalls & Failure to Appear Notices: What Do I Do Now?!

Thursday, September 01, 2016

Whether you neglected to appear in court because of justifiable circumstances or simple forgetfulness, receipt of a failure to appear notice is jarring for most people. Consequences of failing to appear in court include bail imposition, bench warrant issuance, and driver license suspension depending on the nature of the citation. Uh-oh… what do I do now?!

What is a Failure to Appear Notice?

Generally, a failure to appear means you have not appeared in court to address a particular matter. California residents receive a failure to appear notice for issues such as unpaid traffic tickets, failure to complete all the requirements of a DUI conviction or a minor traffic offense. Further, the failure to appear in court is in itself a misdemeanor!

What is a Warrant Recall?

If you have failed to appear in court, a bench warrant may issue and require law enforcement to find you and bring you to court. While waiting for a court appearance, you may even be held without bail! A warrant recall can help you avoid consequences of such warrants. The Law Offices of Elena Mebtahi focus on warrant recalls related to driving with a suspended license, failing to comply with court orders, and failing to appear in court. There is no need to face the serious and lasting consequences of an arrest when an attorney can help you take legal action.

Know Your Defenses to a Failure to Appear

There are several legal defenses used to challenge a failure to appear: (1) that you did not willfully fail to appear when required to do so; (2) that you did not have the required intent to evade court proceedings; and (3) that you did not sign an agreement when you were released on your own recognizance. A skilled attorney like Elena Mebtahi helps clients each day to wade through difficult statutory terminology and effectively raise legal defenses to fight the charges.

Hire an Attorney to Protect Your Rights

There is no need to endure license suspension, fines or arrest because of a failure to appear. However, many California residents do not know the intricacies of traffic violations across the state. Many have never been in front of a judge or arrested pursuant to a warrant. Experienced Los Angeles attorney Elena Mebtahi understands how different California jurisdictions handle warrant recalls and failure to appear notices. We help clients all over the nation resolve their legal challenges. Contact The Law Offices of Elena Mebtahi to preserve your rights and put your life back on track.
