When Your Child is Arrested

Posted a new page about Juvenile Crime.

When living in a society, there’s always a risk of getting involved in a crime. You may become a victim, and in other cases, you may become a suspect.

If you are arrested in a foreign country as a suspect for a crime (which you have or have NOT committed), you will have to go through the criminal procedure in foreign language. Which could mean that you could be convicted without enough defense. If the accused person is a juvenile, the risk will be much more significant.

So, when your child is arrested, we advise you to contact an English speaking lawyer as soon as possible.
