Don’t Let Your Child Do This Alone
If you or someone you know has a child who is facing juvenile charges, don’t panic. There are several specific and immediate actions can take to keep your child’s case moving in the right direction. We have seen these cases many times and have years of experience in helping families in need.
Pay Bail, Then Write Down the Details
The sooner you can get your child out, the better. Then, encourage your child to write down every detail they remember from the incident in question. Cases like this are rarely resolved overnight and the more time passes, the more they will forget. If you have a written document, however, it helps them remember the details that make or break their case. If they’re too emotional to write, then have them record their story on either an audio or video recording device. There are plenty of services that will help turn your audio/video file into a written document. Giving this record to your attorney will make their job easier, too.
Immediately Contact a Juvenile Charges Attorney
Take action and contact an attorney. You need to know what your attorney can do for you. Any good attorney will offer you a free consultation. They want to be sure that your case is a good fit for them and that they are a good fit for your child. Don’t immediately choose the first one you contact because of convenience. Make sure you trust them.
Have a Game Plan
Don’t let yourself and your child step into the courtroom blind. Know what you’re going to do before stepping into the courtroom. Your juvenile charges attorney should prep you for what to expect inside the court. They will advise you on what to say, when to say it, and when not to speak.
Go in aggressive. This is your child’s rights, public record, and even future you are fighting for. Be strong. The most important thing is to be confident. Your child is relying on you and their attorney to help their future. The best thing you can do for them in this situation is staying strong. Show them you’re confident with their case.
Trust your attorney. If you trust the attorney you chose, this is easy. If not, it can be a challenge, and perhaps you need to find another attorney. Either way, trust your attorney to do what they believe will achieve the best result in court. This may range from not testifying, to postponing your court date, to limiting your child to yes, no, or I don’t remember responses.
