Sister- In - Law Taking Power Of Attorney?
My Husband Is An Advanced Alcoholic And Drug User. We'Ve Been Separated For 8 Months Now After A 24 Year Marriage. His Mother And Sister Have Always Disliked Me. Now They Have Proof Of Why!
I Am The Cause Of His Addictions... So They Believe.
I Am Not Out To Ruin My Husband, I Just Want To Be Safe. Addiction Is A Terrible! I Am So Sorry For My Husband, But Know That I Cannot Help Him In Any Way. The 'Side Effects' Of Adultery And Abuse Are Too Damaging For Me To Be The Supporting Partner I'Ve Always Believed I Was. (So Ignorant...)
We Are In The Middle Of Divorce. He Lost His Very Good Job The Second Week Of December Because Neither He Nor His Girlfriend Bothered To Tell His Employer He Was Going Into Detox (Fourth Time In Rehab In A Year...) So That'S Very Suspect Because He Always Took Great Care In Not Losing His Job. It Is Even More Suspect That It Happened Shortly After The Judge Ordered Spousal Maintenance For Me And Child Support After He Tried To Revise That Judgment, But Failed.
Now He'S Not Paying A Thing And I Am Hanging On A Thread, Trying To Keep The House And A Fairly 'Normal' Life Afloat For Our Teen. He'S Emailed Me That For The First Time He'S Experiencing Depression (He'S Been On Ssris For Many Years And I Often Talked About His Need For Counseling...). He'S Informed Me That He'Ll Move Away To His Mother'S House In Oregon. We Live In Washington State.
Here'S What I Am Wondering. His Sister, Who Is Really Vile And Vindictive, Affluent And Entitled, Pious To No End And Managing Everybody Else'S Life Is Trying To 'Help' Him. If She Were To Take Power Of Attorney Over My Husband, What Would That Spell For Me? Would I Have To Mediate With Her? If It Goes To Trial (Which I Suspect This Divorce Will) Do I Have To Argue Her? How Much Power Does She Actually Have If She Were To Take On The Poa. Trust Me, She'S Just As Dangerous Behind The Scene..
Thank You For Any Input!
I'm so sorry for your predicament. That's horrible.
The only good advice you are going to get is from a good attorney. Him putting his sister as POA means that she takes care of his affairs if he is unable to do so, but laws vary from state to state so I would really look into websites concerning this in your area and consult an attorney as soon as possible.
He'd have to be in pretty bad shape not to be able to handle his own affairs. Usually POA is given to people with aging parents who might become incapacitated and unable to make their own decisions in the future.
But first and foremost, get the info you need to protect yourself. This does seems like it could get ugly fast...
A Question For Law School Students And/Or Lawyers???
A Few Questions, Actually:
1) I Have A Strong Background In Standardized Test Taking. However, My Quantitative Skills Have Often Carried My Scores, Although My Verbal Scores Were Not Terrible. Has Anyone Else Been In My Situation, And If So, How Did You Fare On The Lsat?
2) As I Mentioned, I Am A Very Quantitative Person, And I Am Afraid That The Law May Not Hold My Interest. I Would Hate To Change Courses, Enroll In A Law School, And Pay The Tuition, Only To Realize That It Is Something That I Absolutely Hate. Can Any One Recommend A Source Where I Could Determine If The Curriculum Is Something That Would Interest Me.
3) I Have Had Trouble Finding The Different &Quot;Tiers&Quot; Of Schools. The Schools I Am Looking At (And Businessweek Ranking) Include: U Of Georgia (32), Georgia State (82), Emory (22), Etc - Essentially, All Are In The Top 100. How Do I Find Out What Tier These Schools Are In?
Also, Tuition Is Listed As Ranging From 7,000 To 35,000. Is This Per Year Or Semester?
Take a practice LSAT test. You can find free ones in many places. That's the only way to tell how you do on the test. Everyone is different.
Go visit a local law school. Ask to sit in on a class. That'll give you an idea if you'd be bored out of law school. Just remember that being a lawyer has very little to do with what law school is like.
I'd also recommend shadowing different types of lawyers. See if you can shadow a lawyer practicing Intellectual Property. It sounds like you have a BS degree so that may be an area of law that interests you.
Tier is easy to figure out. They normally follow the US News rankings. 1-50 is First Tier. 51-100 is 2nd Tier. 101-150 is 3rd Tier. Anything lower is 4th Tier.
Tuition depends on the school. I'd have to see the wording to see if they've broken it down to semester or not. $35,000 is definitely going to be for the whole year. $7,000 sounds like it could be for a semester, altho I know state schools in that part of the US are good bargains so it might actually be for the year. Just check the school's website. Research is a big part of being a lawyer. Finding out the answer to that shouldn't be too hard for your. Don't like doing even that, then don't be a lawyer.
Going To College For Family Law?
So I Want To Go To College And Be Like A Family Attorney But When I Look At The Categories, Which One Do I Want To Pick? Civil Law Etc.? When I Say College I Mean The Basic Colleges. Just Fyi.
If you are in the US you must earn a bachelors degree before even applying to law school, you must have a law degree to be a lawyer of any type. You can get your bachelors degree in any major that you want.
Family law is civil law, anything not criminal is civil. Regardless, right now you just need to choose a major that interest you (avoid pre law which is not required) and is challenging.
Then note that you do not specialize in law school, you just take a bunch of courses on different subjects and specialize by getting a job in the area you want to practice after you have taken the bar exam, in your case family law.
How Do You Become A Prosecuting Attorney?
See I Want To Become A Prosecuting Attorney And I Am In Freshman Year Of High School Right Now... I Need To Know What I Have To Do In High School And College To Become A Great Prosecuting Attorney... Also Can You Guys Tell Me What Colleges Are Good To Go To?
Thanks In Advance
Usually, the job of prosecuting attorney is an elected position. However, the prosecutor generally hires deputy prosecutors to handle the majority of the cases. For the most part, these are experienced criminal lawyers. My recommendation would be to
1. Go to college and major in pre-law with a minor in Criminal Justice or other field.
2. Go to law school and try to distinguish yourself as much as you can.
3. Get a job with a firm that specializes in criminal defense.
4. Work hard and learn all you can about criminal law.
5. Apply for a position as a deputy prosecutor.
There are lots of good law schools. Harvard probably has the best reputation, but, the school is not as important, in the lost run, as your efforts.
What Are The Best Civil Right´S Attorneys In Houston, Texas?
Íd Like To Know What Are The Best Civil Rights Attorneys In Houston, Do U Know Any Website Where They Are Rated? I Would Prefer Someone Who Is Not Caucasian (Nothing Against) Please Site Websites If U Can So I Can Call And Email Them
ACLU of Texas and ACLU Foundation of Texas
P.O. Box 8306, Houston, TX 77288-8306
(713) 942-8966 fax
(888) 653-6498 toll free
If your complaint is legitimate the race or ethnicity of the attorney who will represent you shouldn't matter. There is no site that rates them, either you take a leap of faith and find one through the ACLU who will work for you or you're on your own. The ACLU typically works pro bono (free or contingent on a settlement) on complaints where significant punitive monetary restitution isn't sought, if you are after money any pedestrian trial lawyer will do provided the defendant has deep pockets.
Don't expect to receive a monetary settlement even if your complaint goes to trial, it may even be nullified by the jury depending on the nature of your complaint. Not trying to discourage you, merely trying to keep you grounded in reality.
