Default Motion for appropriate relief in North Carolina

Does anyone have any info, good or bad, regarding MAR? We believe we are ready to file, but I don't want to make any mistakes. We could really use some advice. Thanks

when it comes to things legal and you are not absolutely sure of things, best bet is to secure counsel competent to perform the service. Some Motions are a one-bite-at-the-apple thing and if you screw it up, you don't get to come back and claim ineffective assistance of counsel when you did it as a non-practitioner.

I will definitely consider your advice. I really don't want to screw this up and you are right, I am no lawyer, just a woman who wants her man home. Thanks for responding, much appreciated!

I seen where you talked about filing for MAR for your husband and was wondering how that went? Reason i'm asking is cause I'm thinking of doing the same for my husband, he got way too harsh of a punishment I believe for a non violent drug crime

Did either of you file the MAR? And how did it go? I’m asking because my fiancé is talking about filing one due to getting 8yrs for a drug crime. Any info you have would be beneficial!
