Once you’ve been charged with a crime, one of your top concerns is how to stay informed. Fortunately, there are many ways to stay up-to-date on your case. Your defense team can keep you informed of everything that’s happening with your case. You can also contact your employer to discuss your role in the case. Additionally, a Victim Witness Coordinator can contact your creditors to let them know your involvement. While your creditors aren’t required to consider your involvement in the case, they may do so if you consent.
You may want to let your nearest relative (NR) know what’s going on with you. Although these types of relatives aren’t allowed to view your medical records, it’s still important for them to be informed of your situation. While this can be difficult, if you think your relative would benefit from being informed of your case, you can talk to them about sharing information. If they refuse, you can always file a complaint. You can also request a copy of the local policy for information sharing and see whether they’ve followed it.
