3 Questions Answered
Q. I want to report someone to CPS because of some things I've seen .I do not want her to know I called CPS on her.
A: If you suspect or know that a child is being abused or neglected, you should report it as soon as possible. You may call 1-800-252-5400 and tell them right away that you want to remain anonymous. Please know that, even if you tell them your name, Child Protective Services (CPS) keeps the name of the person making the report confidential. On the flip-side, anyone who does not report suspected abuse can be held criminally liable for the omission. If you have any questions regarding this issue, there are many lawyers that handle both criminal and child abuse cases, like myself, that would be glad to offer you advice or a consultation.
Q. can I get a non disclosure agreement?
A: You may petition for an order of non-disclosure to seal records of an arrest and its corresponding judicial process that resulted in you being placed in deferred adjudication probation (community supervision). If you completed the probation successfully, and after the requisite statutory waiting period has been satisfied, then you may petition for an order of non-disclosure. An order of non-disclosure does not destroy the records, but rather secures them under seal to prevent the public and private agencies from discovering these records. Nonetheless, the records continue to be available to both state and federal law enforcement agencies, as well other government administrative state and federal agencies. You should contact an attorney to discuss your situation and check if you qualify to file for an order of non-disclosure.
Q. My dad is being detained and charged with reentry and is a federal case now.Is there anything that anybody can do ?
A: You should seek advise from an attorney familiar with reentry cases in federal court and immigration law. A reentry case in federal court depends on many factors to resolve, and to adequately advise you on whether anything that anybody can do to help your father. However, it is important to understand that there are defenses to the accusation of reentry, and you should explore those for your father’s case with an attorney. In short, seek the advise of an attorney to explore the options available in a reentry case as they relate to your unique case situation.
