Step one is to generate a list of the lawyers which can be listed in your area focusing on your position. While you are causeing this to be list you ought to only include those that you may have a great vibe about depending on their advertisement. You may then narrow this list down by taking a little while evaluating their website.

My Boyfriend Is Having A Tough Time With His Ex Wife Following Their Parenting Plan.?
His Ex Wife Is Getting Remarried In A Few Weeks (My Boyfriend Likes Her New Husband,Thinks He Is A Nice Guy) But She Is Making Changes In How And When The Kids Are Picked Up, Who Is Able To Watch Them, And Telling Him He Needs To Change His Job To Work Better With Her New Schedule. Because Of The Time Of Day That He Has To Be At Work It Is Difficult For Him To Hold His Ground.
I Knew Them Both As A Couple Before We Started Dating And Its Sad To Say But She Is A Very Selfish Person And Is So Wrapped Up In Her New Husband Now That The Kids Schedules With Each Of Them Is Being Changed To Benefit Her Time With Him. She Has Even Violated The Plan And Had Him Stay Over Night With The Kids There, She Has Already Moved Him In Before They Are Married, And Wants Her Future Husband To Be Able To Keep The Kids At Night While She Is At Work, Which They Have Told Their Dad They Are Not Comfortable With Anyone Putting Them To Bed Besides Him And His Ex Wife.
Is There Anything Legally He Can Do At This Point Without Paying An His Attorney Again. She Drained Him During The Divorce And He Is Just Now Getting Back On His Feet.
If the court administered a parenting plan then he should make her stick with it. She sounds controlling and he does not have to put with that - simply return to court and get it all written down.
You should stay out of it and let them parent even though I know you mean well but she will just make his life more miserable if she thinks you are involved with his/her kids. Just be supportive to him and listen and help him. You can let her know (if she asks) that she is boss/mother of the kids and your only interest is that the kids not be damaged.
She does not sound very smart if she wants to bring a new man into her kids life before the kids feel safe and comfortable with her new husband to be - but there is not much you or him can do about that. He should let his know that he wants to communicate with them all the time - and the kids not liking him is not enough reason for the courts to be involved unless he is hurting them mentally or physically the courts won't do much.
My parents and step parents were smart enough to put "the children" first and now I'm proud to say I have 2 great parents and 2 great step parents.
Why Do People Believe Its Illegal To Give Legal Advice If You Are Not A Bar Certified Attorney ?
Abraham Lincoln For Example, Gave Legal Advice. He Never Passed Any Bar Exam Though. He Did Not Even Go To Law School. He Was Self-Taught. And Yes, They Did Have Law Schools And Bar Exams In The 1800S.
In Lincolns day, as you may have heard, it was also illegal to own slaves. Laws change, and these days, it is illegal to practice law (charge a fee for legal advice) unless you have passed the state's bar exam. You do not always have to go to formal school, a few states do allow one to simply sit the exam. But you do need to pass the exam.
If You Are Paying Your Ex-Wife Alimony, Can Alimony Be Discontinuted If She Becomes Pregnant By Her Live-In?
If He Is Paying Child Support And Alimony To Ex-Wife, Which All The Money Goes Towards Her Rent And Bills,Can Alimony Discontinue If She Becomes Pregnant By Her Live-In Boyfriend. Lawyer Says If Proof He Lives There Alimony Is Discontinued, But There Is No Way Of Proving Since His Name Isn'T On Any Of The Bills. It'S Clear As Day He Does Live There Too. So Basically Ex-Husband Would Be Paying For Rent And All Utilities For Ex-Wife,Her Boyfriend, Their Baby, And His Two Kids? Does That Make Any Sense?
Usually divorce decrees stop alimony upon re-marriage, and one could argue that this is the equivalent of re-marriage, but you will need proof -- your lawyer is correct. About child support -- that is almost never stopped so long as the child is a minor. However, ask your lawyer about that!
Is Law Office Foundation Certificate, The Same As A Paralegal Certificate?
I Am Currently Looking To Get Enrolled Into A Paralegal Program, And I Have Realized That The Options Are A Certificate, Associates, And Bachelors Degree. Personally I Would Like To Obtain The Certificate First, Get Employed, Then Further My Education In The Field. My Question Is, The College I Am Thinking Of Going Through Offers A Law Office Foundation Certificate And I Am Wondering If This Is The Same As A Paralegal Certificate?
I have never even heard of a "law office foundation certificate". You need to be very careful of these "law schools" - a lot of them are just scams. Any classes that you take should be ABA approved.
"Certificates" are a waste of time and/or money. In today's tight job market, legal employers want their employees to have BACHELORS degrees.
Please be aware of what you are proposing on getting yourself into. Please do more research first. Reminder: We are in a World-wide Recession. Consider career paths that have available jobs.<<<<<<<
Warning> Jobs in the field of Law are drying up fast!! This is just not a good field to invest time and/or money into. This is a SHRINKING, crumbling, and dying vocational field. Many reasons. Many people today (mistakenly) think they can do their own legal work, thanks to the Internet. Also, we simply already have way too many Legal Professionals - we have an absolute glut!! ("Legal Professionals" includes, but is not limited to: Attorneys/Lawyers, Paralegals, Legal Assistants, Legal Secretaries, Bailiffs, Court Reporters, etc, etc)
There are no jobs in this vocational field. My family, coworkers, friends, acqaintances, etc. are being laid off left and right in this vocational field.
Regarding being a Paralegal: Employers (usually law firms) in the field of Law today want employees with Bachelors degrees from traditional colleges/universities. Those "certificates" you see advertised aren't worth the paper they are printed on - they are generally scams. (I found this out the hard way.)
Cost of law school to be lawyer, approx $150,000+.
Be prepared to take on a lot of debt.
Even if you finish law school, you won't be able to find a job when you are done. Since this vocational field is shrinking, many new attorneys/lawyers are, themselves, having to work "down" as Paralegals, Legal Assistants, Legal Secretaries, Bailiffs, Court Reporters, etc, etc, to simply try to keep some of their bills paid <<this would be your competition. And the competition is fierce!!
Now... the law schools know this, but they won't tell you the truth >that the job market/economy is just saturated with way too many Legal Professionals. Instead the schools will feed you a fairytale and will lie to you. The root of the problem is we have too many law schools. We are in a recession, and the schools are fighting for their own survival - they will tell students anything to get to the students' money. (Which is why they won't tell you the truth about the job market for the field of Law.) And these schools continue to recruit and churn out even more graduates.............Remember: law schools are BUSINESSES - their top concern is making money for themselves.
If you don't believe me, then just do a search here on Yahoo Answers to see what other posters are saying about the current status of the field of Law. Call some local law firms - ask to speak to the Manager of Human Resources - ask them if they are hiring; ask them what they think about job availability in the field of Law..................
In the book "So You Want to be a Lawyer?" by Marianne Calabrese and Susanne Calabrese (ISBN 0-88391-136-1): "The United States has more lawyers than any other country in the world. About 38,000 students graduate >each year< from the 200+ law schools in the United States. The competition is very keen for jobs and clients." - Even Associate Justice Antonin Scalia (who served on the U.s. Supreme Court for more than 20 years) says there are too many lawyers. (9/14/2008)

If you want a job when you are done with your studies, consider and look into the fields of >>>Healthcare or Information Technology! I spoke to a career counselor from Jobs and Family Services, and HE told me that these areas are where the jobs are, and future job availability! and scholarships!

Should Child Support Guidelines Be Taught In Sex Education Classes?
I Think That They Would Be A Great Deterent In Preventing Teenage Pregnancy?
Absolutely. A large percentage of children will be affected by child support in the future and they should all be prepared.
Boys especially should be informed about what happens when a pregnancy occurs, especially in an unmarried situation. In short, his choices are over. He will be forced to supply an amount of money each month that exceeds the USDA requirements of costs; that this "debt" is unforgivible; that he can be jailed for failing to pay this "debt"; that he may or may not be granted "visitation" with his children; that the money he pays to the other parent can be used for any purpose, legal or illegal; if he accepts another job to support himself and his children (and their mother), in most states, his child support debt will also increase; even if he can prove to be unable through no fault of his own to be unable to pay the current amount, his potential income may be assessed beyond his ability and child support set on the judges opinion of what he *should* be earning; that in most cases, even though paying far too much, he will lose any tax deductions.
They need to understand that even if married, he can be divorced for absolutely no reason whatever and will almost certainly be assigned as "absent" or "non-custodial" parent and forced to pay too much for too long to his ex-wife.
In either case, he loses all ability to direct his children's lives and choose what is best, having always to defer to the 'proper' parent.
Also, they need to be informed that they should never take the word of a woman that they are the father of her children as up to 30% of men are unrelated to children he though were his.
Help??? Criminal Law Question?
Why Is It Necessary To Require A &Quot;Subtantial Step&Quot; Before Mere Plans Become A Criminal Attempt? Explain In Detail.
There are three parts to a crime: the mens rea, actus reus, and a concordance between the two. Mens reas means that you have to have a guilty state-of-mind, actus reus is actually committing the crime. A guilty state of mind in addition to a criminal act alone do not mean that a person is guilty of a crime. In simpler terms, merely thinking (mens reas) about shooting somebody (for example) does not mean that a person is GUILTY of shooting someone. Actually shooting somebody (actus reus) alone in itself does not mean that the shooter is totally guilty. The person can be involuntarily intoxicated, mentally insane, etc. and these are legal defenses to a crime.
In order to be guilty of a crime, a person must demonstrate both a guilty state of mind and the actual criminal act TOGETHER. Once this is established, the prosecution and defense seek mitigating and aggravating evidence to display in court.
The "substancial step" that you are referring to is the "actus reus," and as I mentioned before it must be demonstrated IN ADDITION TO a guilty state of mind (mens reas) to be considered a criminal attempt.
Let me know if you have any further questions.
