My Husband Was Arrested - What Happens Now?

After arrest the person arrested will usually be taken by the police to a police station for questioning.

The police follow set rules which govern the way they can question a person suspected of committing a crime. On arrival the person who has been arrested should have their rights upon arrival at the police station explained to them by the custody officer.

People under the age of 18 or vulnerable adults should not be interviewed or searched without the presence of an ‘appropriate adult’. This can be a parent, family member, friend, social worker or teacher.

In this case, if it is your husband, the most common is that you have the right to a lawyer.

Are there specific cases when I should see a lawyer?

Yes, some matters are best handled by a lawyer. Nearly everyone agrees that you should talk with a lawyer about major life events or changes. Some examples might include:

  • Being arrested for a crime
  • Being served with documents related to a legal proceeding or lawsuit;
    being involved in a serious accident causing personal injury or property damage
  • A change or pending change in family status, such as divorce, birth, adoption, or death
