Question: My mother charged my boyfriend with custodial interference. I do not want the chargers . He already went to jail twice over it. We go back to court this week. I am now 18. Not living with my mother and have no contact with her. How do I get the case dismissed?

Answer: ARS 13-1305. Access interference; classification; definition A. A person commits access interference if, knowing or having reason to know that the person has no legal right to do so, the person knowingly engages in a pattern of behavior that prevents, obstructs or frustrates the access rights of a person who is entitled to access to a child pursuant to a court order. B. If the child is removed from this state, access interference is a class 5 felony. Otherwise access interference is a class 2 misdemeanor. C. The enforcement of this section is not limited by the availability of other remedies for access interference. D. For the purposes of this section "access order" means a court order that is issued pursuant to title 25 and that allows a person to have direct access to a child or incompetent person. A parent is liable for a child till the age of 18. You can try talking with an attorney to see if charges could be dismissed.

THIS JUST STATES THE LAW WITHOUT ADDRESSING THE QUESTION THOUGH I AM STRUGGLING TO SE HOW TO ANSWER WITHOUT GIVING ADVICE.  WOULD HER BOYFRIEND HAVE AN ASSIGNED ATTORNEY IN THIS KIND OF CASE?
