• What’s a SOC?

    A “SOC”is a Stipulated Order of Continuance. The case is continued for a set period of time. Anywhere from 3-24 months and subject to certain conditions (i.e. treatment, probation, no crimes, no contact, pay Court fees). If you comply with all the conditions the case is amended to a lesser charge or dismissed outright. It is commonly used in Domestic Violence Assault cases. You may also have to stipulate to the police report. (acknowlege there is enough to convict) and give up your right to trial among others.
