Can I File A Wrongful Death Lawsuit Without An Attorney?
I Was Informed By The Court That It Comes Down To The Wording And The Attorneys Have Been No Help. I Need To File Three Lawsuits In Regard To The Death Of My Wife. As Well, Is An Oral Agreement Good Enough In Court To Prove A Small Claim Being My Stepdaughter ( Who Will Be A Defendant In The Wrongful Death) Made An Agreement With Me To Pay $10.00 A Month At First For Me Getting Her A Cell Phone And Putting Her On My Plan And Then The Same Thing When I Increased It To $20 After I Lost The Plan I Had For Ten Years Of Which She Contributed To. I Also Had An Oral Agreement And Actually And Email At One Time That I Would Get $200 A Month Toward Utilities When I Allowed Her To Move Back In. She Paid One Month On All Three And Then Stopped!
Unless you are trying to sue for a wrongful death caused by your stepdaughter with a cellphone please do not try and to this yourself. You are not able to articulate what you need here and there is little chance you would be able to do it in a courtroom.
Need Help Understanding Adoption Laws In Indiana.?
Okay, Here'S The Situation. My Friend (Jess, 25) And I (Britt, 24) Have Been Friends For 11+ Years And She Has A 5 Year Old Daughter (Jill). We Are Very Close And Consider Each Other Sisters In All But Blood. Lately, We'Ve Been Arguing On The Fact Of Where Jill Would Go Should Something Happen To Her. Jess' Family Is Small, And She Doesn'T Really Trust Any Of Them With Her Daughter, Aside From Her Aunt (Whom She Lives With).
We Had Talked About Having Me Put Down As Jill'S Godparent And Who Jill Would Go To Should Something Happen To Jess. Now, Jess Has A Lot Of Medical Problems And She Wants To Make Sure Jill Is Taken Care Of. She Has Expressed That I'M The Only One She Would Trust With Jill.
The Argument Has Been About How Jess Keeps Changing Her Story. At First, She Said Her Lawyer Told Her That In Order For Me To Be Able To Adopt Jill Was If I Had A Job And Place Of My Own. I Was Like 'Okay, I Can Work On That. No Problem'. Then She Said She Changed Her Mind And Jill Would Be Going To Her Grandma (Who Treats Jess Like Crap, And We Were Afraid That As Jill Got Older, She Would Treat Her The Same).
Then She Said Jill Would Be Going To Her Aunt (The One She Lives With), But She Works And Isn'T Getting Any Younger So It Would Be Difficult For Her. Then She Tells Me That Her Lawyer Said That Because I'M Not Related By Blood, I'M Not Eligible To Adopt Jill If Something Happens To Jess.
You Can Probably See My Issue. I Just Want To Know What Is True And What Isn'T.
Point by point: The lawyer's comments are half true, half not. I don't think it sounds like she's using an
adoption attorney, but you may be leaving out context.
"At first, she said her lawyer told her that in order for me to be able to adopt Jill was if I had a job and place of my own." Yes. To ADOPT a child you need to show financial stability and place of residence.
'because I'm not related by blood, I'm not eligible to adopt Jill if something happens to Jess.'
What exactly does this attorney thing adoption is? It's basically taking a child that is NOT RELATED to you, and the child becoming, through the legal system, "as if born to you".
Now, here's the deal: Jess can assign GUARDIANSHIP or CUSTODY to anyone she chooses, including a non-relative, BUT....a relative of the child could contest that, and possibly be successful. On the other hand, YOU could not contest the placement of a child with a relative with the same chance of success. An adoption would not take place until much later, after a home study was completed by the party who was awarded final custody.
In the event of young children whose father AND mother are no longer in the picture,, I believe a guardian ad litem is generally appointed by the court to determine the best interest of the child. If they're old enough, their wishes can also factor into the equation, as will the wishes of the mother.
As for her flip-flopping between the aunt and grandma, it's likely that their ages and health will be taken into consideration by the courts as far as their overall fitness as parents goes.
I would step back from the situation, myself. It sounds like it's causing a great dial of strife between all of you. And don't forget, Jill still has a father. I'm willing to bet that due diligence would be taken to attempt to notify that father that your friend had passed, leaving the fate of Jill up in the air.
Here are the Indiana statutes regarding guardianship:
This is the one in particular that you should look at:
I Want A Job In A Law Office.?
I Am Going To Be Graduating With My Psychology Degree Here Soon From Arizona State. I Am Looking To Get A Job In A Law Firm. However, All I Ever See Is Paralegal Work. What Would I Be Able To Do? I Am Looking For Anything. I Just Want To Get Into The Field And Start Getting My Feet Wet.
What you are seeing are advertisements to scams - probably "certificates" - which are really worthless in the vocational field of Law. No one will hire you. Employers today want their employees to have BACHELORS degrees in Paralegal Studies.
We have an absolute GLUT of Legal Professionals and not enough jobs to go around. You'll work your butt off at university, get out, and discover you can't find a job.
Invest your time and money in a vocation that has future employment opportunities - like Healthcare.

Attorneys: Felony Convictions And Employment?
I Am Aware That Felony Convictions Are Considered Legal Grounds For Refusal Of Employment. I Also Suspect And Believe (Though I Have No Evidence) That Employers Have Been Sued On Basis Of Discrimination, For Which The Employers Were Found To Not Be At Fault.
I Am Wondering, Though, Has Any Case Been Tried Based On Discrimination Because The Felony Conviction Had No Relation To The Employment Requested? In Other Words, I Understand The Legitimacy Of Turning Down Employment To A Thief For Working Behind A Cash Register, A Felon Convicted Of Fraud From Handling Credit/Debit Cards, Etc; And We Assume That Blanket Refusal Due To Felony Convictions As Legal And Nondiscriminatory.
The Argument Would Be That It Is Discrimination Due To The Lack Or Relationship Between The Conviction And The Responsibilities Of The Position Denied.
Has This Been Tried? While No One Can Guarantee Success Or Failure In Such Issues, Do You Believe That This Would Be Sufficient Grounds To Be Heard In Court? Do You Believe That Such An Argument Would Be Utterly Futile And A Waste Of Time And Money To Even Attempt:?
That wouldn't work. Convicted felons are not a protected class and a felony conviction can be the basis for denying employment regardless of the crime or the job.
Hey Whats Law School Like?
Has Any One Been To Law School? What Tips Do You Have To Make It Through Successfully?
Law school is hard, but manageable (like life, and high school).
Academically, you will have more reading than you've ever had before in your life. Professors will expect you to be prepared and will randomly call on you to answer specific questions about what you've read. Class will be graded on a curve, and thus competitive; however, grades will be based on a single exam that's graded at the sole discretion of the professor, which can sometimes seem a bit arbitrary. The job market is also rough right now, so there will be direct competition for the jobs available. You'll also be expected to participate in ECs that are in your area of interest.
And it will be amazing. You'll meet people who are very intelligent, passionate, and share your interests. You'll grow as a person and learn a lot about what you believe, and why you believe it. However, there is a general lack of social intelligence, so things can get awkward and petty (also like high school!). Be prepared for everyone to know your business.
I honestly had a great time at law school, and I would go through it again. However, it doesn't offer the job security it once did, and it is expensive.
As far as how to make it through successfully, be nice to everyone. Show up prepared for class. Do all the work. Take time off to have fun with friends when you need it. Find some ECs you love and dedicate a good amount of time to them. Don't stress too much.
Need Legal Advice For Divorce / Custody Case?
State Of Colorado, Divorce Has Been Going On For Almost 6 Months. Opposing Council Is Unethical, And Has Pulled Out Every Dirty Trick Possible. He Is Attempting To Over-Turn Protection Order In Place, And Constantly Creates Frivolous Issues For My Attorney To Drain My Retainer. Nearly $40K Dollars Later, I Am Realizing My Attorney Is Not A Match For This- He Is Always Playing Defensive And Gets Mauled By Opposing Council.
I Need A New Attorney But Now Do Not Have The Money For A Retainer. Because My Spouse Has Unlimited Finances, I Have Been Told I Won'T Qualify For Legal Aid, And Have Been Advised By Many That Legal Aid/Pro Bono Attorneys Often Do Not Put In The Effort Necessary To Win A Case.
I Am Desperate. My Ex, Even With His Domestic Abuse History, Has Been Awarded More Custody Than Me Of Our 2 Year Old Son And While The Judge Reminded Me This Is Only Temporary, I Have No Idea Where To Turn.
I think the main problem is that not everything needs to be responded to, and I cannot even imagine what took $40K in 6 months.
I have seen many divorce cases where one spouse was ordered to pay for the legal expenses for both spouses....I would also go to court alone the next time (you can always appeal) and simpy explain to the judge that you cannot qualify for legal aid (but you still need to go, they cannot refuse you based on your SPOUSE'S income in a divorce case b/c you cannot force him to pay your expenses), and can no longer pay for an attorney.
If he has a domestic abuse history, there has to be a reason why he was awarded more visitation time...it isn't b/c your soon-to-be-ex has more money, judges ALWAYS state a reason for it...you should have posted that reason here.
I wouldn't worry about the protection order unless this man has actually tried to kill you...you didn't post that he has actually ever hit you, as domestic abuse is in many forms.
Keep in mind that draining money to keep a protection order in place is a waste of money....someone that is ACTUALLY truly trying to do you harm...is going to ignore the order anyway, and if he has THAT much money, chances are very slim that he would risk losing everything he has paid for, in order to end up in prison.
Focus on your CHILD.
