Lawyer's, Assistant
A few months ago a flatmate of my mother in law attacked my mother in law, my partner even tho he shouldn't of reacted the way anyone would or especially the way a son would...anyway he hit him a few times really he's been charged with assault with intent he's never been in trouble before nor charged with anything before especially not assault, we have a lawyer through legal aid and she's asking for Guilty without Conviction..there's a few things I'm worried about? My partner us a 30 year old man who works and supports his family he is a qualified mechanic and at the moment is working woth a welding company to get his welding license, to go with his mechanic cert he just started this job in april and its going so well that there even an option to work in their companies abroad like canada, Australia..Canada is a whole new start and life for us and one we've been aiming for he just has to work 2years for the Auckland branch but with a conviction especially assault he wont be allowed entry..Firstly...How likely is it he could get "Guilty with No Conviction"?
JA: Have you talked to a lawyer about this?
Customer: Secondly..I don't believe his lawyer has done right by him or isn't doing something right since day one?
JA: What steps have you taken so far?
Customer: What do u mean?
JA: The Lawyer will be able to walk you through that. Is there anything else the Lawyer should know before I connect you? Rest assured that they'll be able to help you.
Customer: When the police rang after the incident he told my partner to come for a chat it was a Sunday so we didn't think anything of it..the policeman on the phone also reassured us that we would be in and out only a quick chat..while the kids and I were waiting in the car for two hours my partner comes out and says they are arresting him and charging him with assault and then he gave me the keys to the van.Customer: Chat is completed
