Can I get temporary emergency custody for the mother being heavily intoxicated several days out the week when she has the girls?
For the 2nd time I had to call 911 for the police to get one or both from their mothers house from her being over intoxicated. Girls called me scared from their mothers drinking. I have followed our decree to the letter of the law. If I have the girls more or less than the decree, it has always been verbally accepted with no problem. She loves her girls but drinks way to often when they are there. She has a problem of not being able to stop and gets weirded out after to many. As far as I know she has not harmed them physically. Girls and I had written up an internal contract that we all signed including the mother to seek help through therapy and AA. She did well for a bit but reverted back to her drinking. I now have 2 case numbers and a signed internal contract. Do I have a case?
You need to filr a peition to modify the PP. The contract is pointless and will work against you. Courts hate when...

I was just informed by my sister who lives at my old address in WA that a summons was sent to me. On 7/29/14 I was involved in a very minor accident. I was accused of a DUI. Blew a 0.00 and the sobriety test was "inconclusive" because a new medication caused me to have tremors in my legs. They took me to the hospital to get drug tested. I told the officer I did take prescribed medication that morning, which can cause drowsiness. I received a ticket for improper lane usage. Now, dated 11/10/14 I am required to appear in court on 11/25/14 for an arraignment on DUI charge. I live in Arizona now and have no means of getting to WA for this court date. I don't want a warrant for my arrest and I certainly don't want to be expedited to WA if I get pulled over here in AZ. What do I do?
If you do not appear for your arraignment, a warrant will issue for your arrest. Period. You could hire a criminal...
Can I be arrested for DUI while sitting in a restaurant? My driving was NOT witnessed by a police officer. Civilian call to 911
I was driving down the highway, not under the influence, I was texting. I know, that's bad... A civilian in a pickup was following me and used his cell phone to report me as DUI. I stopped to get something to eat and the guy followed me and parked his truck to block me in. I got out and he said that he was not going to let me kill anyone. I replied "OK" and went into the restaurant and sat down. After a couple of minutes a police officer came into the restaurant and told me to come with him on suspicion of DUI. I refused. I asked if I was observed driving erratically by a police officer, he said no. He then grabbed my arm, twisted it up behind my back and pulled me off my chair and walked me outside. I refused all sobriety tests and consequently spent 2 days in jail. I am out on $50K bail
If you had to post bail like that there is a lot more to this story
