Successful Progress Report; bench warrant averted Successful Report - Client had to show proof at the Pasadena courthouse of enrollment in the 52-week parenting class, as well as community service. Client neglected to bring physical proof of parenting class enrollment; our Pasadena progress report attorney was resourceful enough to bring a digital copy. The court, although it would have been empowered to issue a bench warrant for failure to show proof, did not issue a bench warrant, again, on account of the resourcefulness of our attorney. Moreover, our attorney argued that the protective order against the victim should be lifted because no violence had been involved. Although the court deferred a ruling until a date in the near future when client had showed more progress, the "window" had been opened for the protective order to be modified or terminated in the near future.
