Finding A Seasoned Lawyer Irrespective of what your legal needs are you will recognize that there are loads of lawyers in your neighborhood that advertise which they focus on your kind of case. This will make the whole process of finding one with quite a lot of experience somewhat of a challenge. However, in the event you follow the tips below it is possible to restrict your search off to the right one out of almost no time. Step one is to produce a set of the lawyers that happen to be listed in the area focusing on your situation. While you are causeing this to be list you must only include those which you have a great vibe about depending on their advertisement. Then you can narrow this list down through taking some time evaluating their webpage. There you should certainly find how many years they have been practicing and a few general information about their success rates. At this time your list ought to have shrunken further to the people that you felt had professional websites and an appropriate level of experience. You should then take time to search for independent reviews for each attorney. Be sure you read the reviews rather than depending on their overall rating. The details in the reviews will give you a sense of how they connect to the clientele and the length of time they invest into each case they are concentrating on. Finally, you will need to meet up with at the very least the final three lawyers who have the credentials you are looking for. This will provide you with enough time to actually evaluate how interested they can be in representing both you and your case. It is actually important to follow many of these steps to actually find a person which has the correct measure of experience to help you get the perfect outcome.

My Friend Is Needing To Know What Florida Family Law Act 12.825 Is Or What Florida Family Law Form 12.902 Mean
I Tried Searching For Them But I Dont Understand The Legal Wording If You Can Help I Would Appreciate It Ty
Hi, I'll try to help you out here. First of all, his lawyer isn't going to talk to her, he's representing the husband. All he'll tell her is get your own lawyer.
Next, in any divorce action each party has the right to ask for disclosure of the other's financial information. Again, she needs an attorney to represent her side of it, and ask hubby for the same info.
The petition for dissolution of marriage will be filed with the court, and finalized by the judge assigned to the case. Even if they have no children, I STRONGLY urge your buddy to get an attorney, a few hundred dollars spent there could save her thousands in the long run... :)
The papers for divorce won't be filed by her, they go back to the attorney. Normally requests for discovery don't have any sort of notary or court seal on them, just the docket ID and date filed.

How To Become A Family Lawyer?
I Want To Become A Lawyer But Under Family Law. So How Would I Go To School And What Would I Study So I Could Become That
In the USA, to become a Lawyer, IF you go to school full-time:
1) Bachelor's degree - four years from a traditional college/university.
2) Study for LSAT. Take LSAT.
3) Law school - three MORE years.
4) Study for Bar Exam. Take Bar Exam in the state where you want to practice.
5) Pass the Character and Fitness Evaluation. Then you can practice Law.
6) You still have to take additional classes/seminars/legal training etc. each year to obtain CEUs to keep your license to practice Law. (You aren't done with school!!)
7) In many states there are even laws requiring a certain percentage of your legal work to be "pro bono" (free of charge) for some charitable purpose.
Choosing a career is one of life's most important and difficult decisions. But knowing what your expectations are, and then comparing them to the realities will help you make educated decisions.
There are more attorneys than there are legal employment positions. We simply already have way too many Legal Professionals. AND the legal profession is dramatically changing: it is in absolute CRISIS! Job searching in this vocational field has changed >>DRAMATICALLY<< in the last five years. And, every year, more and more people graduate from law school, but there are fewer and fewer jobs. Even the largest and most reputable law firms are experiencing unprecedented cutbacks. I don't expect the situation to improve in the coming years.....
Be aware of what you are proposing on getting yourself into. Please do more research first. Reminder: We are STILL in a World-wide Recession. Obviously, economic conditions affect the number of jobs available. Consider career paths that have available JOBS.<< Even in a Recovery, there are some jobs that just won't return - the field of Law won't make a comeback. Too many things have changed in this vocational field.
Warning> Jobs in the field of Law are drying up fast!! This no longer is a good field to invest time and/or money into. This is a SHRINKING, crumbling, and dying vocational field. Many, many reasons: We now have computers. So, many people today (mistakenly) think they can do their own legal work, thanks to the Internet and legal books. Also, there are a lot of companies out there making very efficient legal software for the field of Law. Today's graduating lawyers tend to be very computer savvy, so they just do the work themselves to save themselves the cost of overhead - they aren't hiring legal staff. Also, the "Public" buys this legal software/law books in order to get legal work done without the expense of an Attorney. Also, we simply already have way too many Legal Professionals - we just have an absolute glut!! ("Legal Professionals" includes, but is not limited to: Attorneys/Lawyers, Paralegals, Legal Assistants, Legal Secretaries, Bailiffs, Court Reporters, etc, etc) For example: Sites like legalzoom.com have taken away work that many small-time attorneys/lawyers would do/used to do.
The field of Law has a mystique that actually exceeds reality. The field of Law is a vastly overrated career - especially by television.<< There are many myths regarding the field of Law. Law is a more demanding profession than most people realize. It is not like what you see on TV.
Cost of law school to be lawyer, approx $150,000+. Be prepared to take on a LOT of debt, if becoming an attorney is your "true", ultimate goal!!!<<<
Even if you do finish law school, you won't be able to find a job when you are done. Since this vocational field is shrinking (at an alarming rate), 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 in TODAY's job market!!
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 already have too many law schools. We are STILL 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.
>>>>>THE #1 MOST IMPORTANT THING (and I can't stress this enough>>>): You ESPECIALLY have to beware of the BOGUS, INFLATED law school salary/job stats given out by >law schools< (AND by the U.S. Bureau of Labor)!!***<<<<<
If you don't believe me, then:
**Check out these websites:
(A link to a website does not constitute endorsement.)
**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 future job availability in the field of Law..................
**Do "informational interviews" with several attorneys from at least two or three different firms. (You can find how to do "informational interviews" from your local Public Library - ask the Librarian.) Interviewing attorneys is a time-efficient and extremely beneficial way of discovering if law is the right vocational field for you. Talk to a few Human Resource Managers who work at employers in the field of Law. Ask them what their opinion is on future job availability for the field of Law. Ask them if they have any current open positions. Ask them how many resumes they receive when they advertise ONE open position. (It is ususally approximately 300 resumes are received for each open position advertised.) If you personally know a practicing lawyer, set up a time with them to do an "informational interview" to ask them about their career. Talk to many attorneys. Better yet, spend an entire day with one of them.
**Talk to recent law graduates. Ask them what success they are having finding employment opportunities. <<<<<
Read 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."
If you want a JOB when you are done with your studies, consider and look into the fields of: >>>Healthcare<<<, Information Technology, Law ENFORCEMENT, environmentalism, emergency planning, accounting, education, entertainment, utilities, home-car-commercial-industrial repairs, vice industries, clergy, and/or debt collection. 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 opportunities/availability....and scholarships.
(This is based on my current knowledge, information, belief, and life experiences. This was intended as personal opinion, and not intended to be used as legal advice. Please be careful and do your research.<<< You DID ask the question here on Y/A. I am just trying to help you.)

New Social Security Laws ?
Ok My Friend Told Me He Cant Go To College This Fall Due To A New Law Passed That Took Away His Dead Mothers Social Security Benefits Which According To Him He Was Going To Use To Help With The Finances Of Living I Want To Know If Such A Law Has Been Passed.
The U.S Law has always been 18 years old, when the child loses the Social security Benifit of a parent that passed away. The money will then goes to the father when he retires, This has been done like this for decades unless their is an exemptions for college, but it will based on income, and your parents income is considered until you reach 26yrs old. if both parents are dead then the goverment keeps the money so.
Believe me if any law passed that states what you think would be all over msnbc or other left wing news outlets blaming republicians for it.
The bulk of college tution is coverd by Financial aid, its all income based. i also had a firend who took every S.S check for 12 years and saved it just for college. so don't blame anyone but himself for not having the funds for college.
