Felony Expungement Illinois?
In 1995 I Plead Guilty To Felony Uuw (Unauthorized Use Of A Weapon) In Chicago, Which Is Cook County. I Had An Unregistered Firearm In My Car. I Was Given &Quot;Intensive Probation&Quot; For 1 Year Which I Completed With No Issues.
Does Anyone Know If Its Possible To Get This Felony Expunged?
Hello Mac. Expungement of a felony conviction is highly specific to the state/crime. That means each state has it's own rules of what is allowed to be expunged and what is not. Certain other rules also apply.
Only a first time felony can be expunged. Two or more numbers and you will keep them forever.
Time elements apply. Most states demand 5 years free and clear of all legal encumbrances with some states demanding 7 years.
Unauthorized use of a weapon MAY be expungable. It is less than a CCW charge, which cannot be expunged.
Best advice ( although not the cheapest way to go) would be to consult with an attorney in the jurisdiction of the arrest/conviction. He can tell you if you qualify. If you do qualify, he can also draw up your petition and submit it to the court in your behalf. Upon granting, all rights are returned to you.
One other item also. When you first call the attorney, verify the first consultation is free. Most attorney will grant this, but it helps to make sure. Each attorney values their time and expertise differently, so your cost can vary. Expect to pay anywhere from $800 to $2,000, depending on the amount of work needed. With a first consultation being free, it allows you to "shop around". Dont go with the cheapest one,,,,,,you usually get what you pay for. Try to find one that has experience and contacts in the court that the expungement will be submitted to.
Best of luck to you and I hope this is useful
How Can I Find A Good Lawyer?
There are a number is places that may help. Contact the American Bar Association online and figure out any information on any lawyers in your area. They should give specifics like the lawyers field of law specialty, any troubles against the attorney, etc. There is a website named Vivo, I believe that gives lawyer ratings and yrs of practicing by name. The library usually has a section that contains records of lawyers in your state and info on them. Check it out. Hope this helps.
Should I Become A Lawyer?
Im Going To Be Entering College Very Soon And Was Deciding What I Wanted To Do I Want To Become A Lawyer But I Heard That The Outlook For This Job And Need Will Not Be There In 8 Years When I Finish All My Schooling. Im Just Afraid Im Going To Spend All This Money Then Either Not Pass The Bar Exam Or End Up Being A Paralegal. What Should I Do? Become A Doctor Instead?
Britt...as a lawyer, I can tell you it's not a fun job and you will be expected to give up your life for your career. Parent's 25th wedding anniversary party you planned and Judge tells you at 5pm he expects written submissions in his chamber first thing in the morning...you have to skip the party....that sort of thing always happens. As for whether you'd wind up a paralegal, it would depend on your motivation and the work you're willing to put in...when I finished, jobs were hard to come by, but the most determined got the jobs....and in law, there are lots of determined, aggressive people!
My dad was a Doctor...that didn't look a whole lot better to me, particularly if you are "on call".
Maybe you should see if you can get some work experience in a law firm or prosecutor's office, talk to some lawyers and see what you think. I find about 90% of us wish we had done something else (at least hte criminal lawyers). And the money just isn't there in either of the professions anymore, and besides, what price can you put on a life?
I also recommend you rent the movie "Click" with Adam Sandler...it's about regretting how much time & energy you put into your career, at the expense of the more important things in life.
Have you considered film school, acting or something like that...all those people seem to love their jobs & can make so much more money than lawyers & doctors.
And re what Hott says about med school, law school's pretty much the same, and when you graduate you have to take all sorts of rubbish from some judges, who will also do everything they can to break you. 2 of my colleagues wound up in mental hospitals mid-way through trials, one after a judge told him he was the worst advocate he'd ever seen (and this guy was a nice hard working guy with a wife and kids who didn't deserve it). Good luck with making your decision and ignore people who say you shouldn't have asked here...it's a great place to ask.
What Is Probate Court,And How Long Does It Take If Someone Protests?
probate happens when someone dies with or without a will. the court basically intervenes upon one's passing and distributes the deceased person's estate accordingly. if there's a will, then it will go to the heirs (after creditors, "death taxes" and court fees are paid). if there is no will, then the court will determine who the rightful heirs are. if no heirs exist, then the state gets the $. if someone protests (like in the case of anna nicole smith) then the process could be delayed. usually, the simplest probate can be 6 mos long. complicated ones could last 30 mos or more.
Why An Evidentiary Hearing For Family Court?
My Son Has Been Trying To Get 50/50 Custody Of His Daughter. The Case Has Been Going On For 2 Years (He Initiated It Because Of The Mother'S &Quot;Behavior&Quot;). There Have Been More That 5 Mediation Meetings (The Mom Only Showed Up To 5) And More Than 10 Court Hearings (She Didn'T Show Up To The First Few).
Today The Judge Decided To Make A Call For An &Quot;Evidentiary Hearing&Quot;. What Is Supposed To Happen During This Hearing And What'S The Purpose? Will This Be The Final Decision?
This is the time that actual evidence has to be presented to the court. This would include statements from people who know the mother, the father etc...plus possibly including financial situations, housing situations etc. This simply means that she can not give her opinion, nor can you. If has to be a provable situation or circumstance that shows that there is a reason for the modification of the current custody.
If he knows that the mother has behaved badly, evidence will have to be presented to show that this is a true claim and that the mothers behavior is in some way injurious to the child. Remember...proof, not opinions.
If a guardian ad litem has been appointed by the court, then the report from him or her would be presented at this same time....as would any other report from doctors, psychiatrists or child protective services if any.
