4 Strategies To Help Your Lawyer Assist You To When you really need a legal professional at all, you need to work closely together so that you can win your case. Regardless how competent they may be, they're planning to need your help. Allow me to share four important methods to help your legal team allow you to win: 1. Be Totally Honest And Up Your lawyers need and expect your complete cooperation - irrespective of what information you're likely to reveal to them. Privilege means anything you say is held in confidence, so don't hold anything back. Your legal team must know everything in advance - particularly information another side could check out and surprise you with later. 2. Provide Meticulous Records Keep a continuing and factual account of all information associated with your case. Whether it's witnesses or payments being made, provide your attorneys with the data they should assist them to win. 3. Appear Early For All Those Engagements Never be late when you're appearing before a court and steer clear of wasting the attorney's time, too, because they are on time, every time. Actually, because you might need to discuss eleventh hour details or perhaps be extra prepared for the situation you're facing, it's a great idea to arrive early. 4. Demonstrate That You Have Your Act Together If you've been charged with any type of crime, it's important so as to convince the legal court which you both regret the actions and therefore are making strides toward increasing your life. For instance, if you're facing a DUI, volunteer for any rehab program. Be sincere and involved with the cities the judge is presiding over. Working more closely along with your legal team increases your probability of absolute success. Try these tips, listen closely to how you're advised and ultimately, you should win your case.

Legal Advice? And Lying Under Oath?
Long Story Short. Me And My Gf Now Ex Got Into Arguement She Stated I Came In Her Room And Raised Fist At Her Face To The Order Of Protection And Was Spitting While I Was Talking. I Got Copy Of Police Report Yesterday And Her Story Was She Came Out Of Room Threw My Pictures On The Floor And I Raised Fist In Her Face Well I Sat Down With Chief Of Police And He Said These Stories Dont Match Up. I Also Have Her Brother In Law Coming To Testify For Me Because When I Did Knock On Her Door. I Was Only Telling Her That Her Sister In Jail. Lets Just Say She Got Caught Lying And Sworn Statement Is Made Up The Cops Told Me Thats Up To Judge Now But It Is Lying Under Oath. I Had To Leave Residence And Been Gone For 14 Days Now. Even Though Im On Lease. And She Lied About That Too. Please Give Real Advice.
My advice would be to rewrite your question and proofread it carefully before you post it. Your question is too convoluted to be able to follow properly.
But DV issues are usually he said/she said. And usually neither one is telling the whole truth. If you are claiming that your ex-gf told two different stories (again, it would be helpful for you to proofread before you post so issues like this would be clear), that is also fairly common. Does it go to her credibility? Sure. But does it mean a judge will automatically conclude she is lying? Not necessarily. Mistakes are not "lies" and all she has to do is say she was confused or whatever.
If you think she is going to face perjury charges for lying, you would be mistaken.
Because I can't figure out the specifics of what you are saying and because you didn't ask a specific question, I don't know what advice you need.

Start asking people you know that have been divorced for advice on lawyers in your area.

Peer To Peer File Sharing And Legal Rights?
If Two Students Use Computers At Our School To Download Copyrighted Programs At School, Who Would Be In Legal Trouble If A Lawsuit Came Into View.
This Would Be Done With The Full Permission Of The School.
This Would Be Done From A School Internet Address Using A School Machine.
Would The School Be Sued Or Would The Students Be Sued?
Both Students Are Male, Minors.
I know you tried to be specific, but I can't really answer this without further information. Still, I'll try to do my best.
If the school has the legal right to distribute the copyrighted programs, no one will get into trouble. For instance, my law school had contracted with some Antivirus companies to allow students to download their software. Clearly, the school has bought the right to distribute the software (within the scope of the contract), so they wouldn't be successfully sued for distributing that software to their students.
In that example, the school gave full permission for us to download it.
Now, let's say that the school DOESN'T have the legal right to distribute. If the school still had the legal right to use the software but not to distribute it, downloading that software for use on school machines usually would be okay, unless those machines were not provided for under the sales contract. In that case, no one could be successfully sued.
Now let's say that the school has no legal right whatsoever to use or distribute the software. In that case, it doesn't matter that school machines were used. If I break the law and murder someone using someone else's gun (with or without their permission), I am just as guilty and liable as if I had used my own gun.
Also, the fact that the students are minors does not matter. Instead, the parents of these students could be sued for the actions of their children. Happens all the time.
I still haven't answered the questions of who can be sued in the event that the school doesn't have usage rights or distribution rights. The answer: Both the students and the school. The owner of the copyright may pick one over the other for reasons of convenience or recovery, but both the school and the students are liable.
The students are liable for breaking copyright law, and the school is liable for encouraging students to break copyright law and for providing accessories (i.e. their computers) to aid in that attempt.
I hope that answers your question.
Question On Father Custody And Rights?
I Know Someone Who Has A Infant. Her Sons Biological Father Is Not On The Birth Certificate And Has Not Done A Paternity Test Either. He Has Not Been Involved In The Sons Life At All And Was Not Present In The Mothers Pregnancy. She Has Sole Custody And Has 'Good Cause' Approved With The Child Support System. For Those Who Are Not Aware Of What Good Cause Is; Good Cause Means The Child Support Agency Feels The Biological Father Is Harmful To The Mother And/Or The Baby Therefore He Does Not Pay Child Support But Is Not Granted Any Visitation Either. All In All, She Is Concerned He Could Get Custody Or Rights Of His Child At Any Time. If A Suitable Father Figure Came Around, Could He Adopt The Child Without The Biological Fathers Consent And/Or Knowledge Of This Plan? Also, If Her Mother Gained Legal Guardianship Of The Child In Addition To The Biological Mother Still Having Rights, Could The Biological Father Still Gain Rights Or Custody? I Might Add, This Is In The State Of Wisconsin. Thank You For Your Knowledgeable Reply.
Your description of the facts doesn't seem to be accurate. You woud likely get more knowledgeable answers if you could double check and/or clarify the facts a bit.
No. Unless the biological father's parental rights have been terminated she could not have someone adopt the child in secret. If she gets married and her husband wants to adopt the child, she would have to serve the petition to the biological father.
Her mother's status as guardian would have absolutely no impact on the rights or ability of the biological father to pursue visitation or even custody in the future. Are you asking: Could the mother dilute the potential future rights of the biological father by getting a third person appointed as guardian? If so, that would be a great big no . . . and could significantly work against the mother if the father attempts to pursue custody in the future. If the bio father gets his act together and can demonstrate he is able to safely parent the child, he could conceivably obtain some visitation rights. Unless the mother does something to send herself into a downward spiral that made her unwilling or unable to take care of the child, the court would not give the father custody. If the child has a legal guardian who is not a parent, this would indicate the bio mom is lacking.
If the father is not on the birth certificate (a mistake on the part of the mother, by the way. Courts do not like it when women play games with the birth certificate.) and has not taken a paternity test, then there has to have been a finding of the court (by default) of paternity. Otherwise, there is no way she could have been granted sole legal custody. Additionally, child support enforcement agencies generally do not have the authority to get involved with custody disputes or to order visitation. Child support enforcement deals ONLY with child support.
