Does Legal Aid Help With Step-Parent Adoption?
Does Anybody Know If Legal Aid Will Help With Step-Parent Adoption?
Some will, and some won't. It depends upon their case load.
Step-parent adoption isn't that expensive, and is much cheaper than most adoptions. It will help if you have access to the first parent who's rights are either severed, or who will sign away their rights. If the first parent won't sign away rights, then there's a good chance legal aid won't help.
No matter what, it's a good idea for you to write a will, specifiying in it that your intentions to have your spouse adopt the child, and that you are granting custody to the spouse. We never know when our time is coming, and children need to be protected.
Need Legal Advice, Problem With An Lawyer?
The State This Takes Place Is In Ny, I Was Renting A Building Out Witht He Help Of An Insurance Broker. She Also Found An Lawyer For Me With My Knowledge. So We Accepted The Help Of This Layer. We Ask Him How Much It Cost For His Service An He Told Us It Will Cost No More Than 100 If The Deal Went Thru, If It Didnt It Should Be 400 Or 500$. Things Went Sour Between Me And The Broker. The Lawyer Was Hired By Her And Was Taking Her Side. He Added Things To The Lease That Was In Favor Of The Broker Such As An Increase In Sale Percentage She Will Get For Renting Out This Building. We Wont Agree To It And This Went On For Months. At The End, We Wont Sign The Contract N Ended The Deal. Now A Year And A Half Later, That Lawyer Sent Us A Bill Sayin We Owe Him 1,800$. We Felt That We Were Cheated And He Was Helping The Broker Instead Of Us. We Also Never Openly Accepted His Help N He Never Mention How Much It Was Going To Cost.He Was Hired By The Broker For Us, We Didnt Hire Him. He Said He'S Going To File A Law Suit If We Dont Pay Him.. What Should I Do?
While a written retainer agreement is not required other than for representation in a domestic relations matter, the absence of a written retainer agreement is going to make it very difficult for a lawyer to recover fees because the lawyer needs to document that his fee structures were clearly communicated, understood and accepted by the client. This is why no competent lawyer will represent a client without a signed retainer agreement even if it is not required by law.
Further, a lawyer cannot represent a client if there is a conflict of interest and it seems clear here that the lawyer had some kind of business arrangement with the broker which was conflict of interest. The conflict also seems severe enough that it could not be waived by your consent even if you gave it to the lawyer. As a result he probably doesn't have a valid claim for legal fees from you because there was no legitimate client attorney relationship.
Tell him in writing by certified mail that you are demanding arbitration for your fee dispute pursuant to Rule 1.5(f) of the Rules of Professional Conduct and are also filing a grievance against him with the grievance committee of the Appellate Division of State Supreme Court for violation of Rule 1.7 of the Rules of Professional Conduct. He is required to submit to arbitration and if he is stupid enough to ignore your request for arbitration and files a lawsuit instead you can show your proof of demand of arbitration to the judge and his lawsuit will be thrown out of court (and the judge will also probably yell at him for his stupidity and ignorance and/or failure to follow the law).
Even if he backs off on the fee dispute I strongly recommend that you follow through with filing the grievance. There are currently 8 grievance committees and the one you want to file with depends on where the lawyer is located. See web page from the first link below to get the contact information for the grievance committee that covers the lawyers location and send a written complaint to them citing conflict of interest.
You can find out more about the arbitration process and your rights under it at the second link below.

Diff. B/W Advocate,Lawyer,Pleader,Barister & Attorney ?
As They Seems All Are Advocating Law Then So Many Names. May Be On The Basis Of Some Liberty Or Seniorty...?
Not much. The actual answer depends on the jurisdiction, the country. In the USA where there are more lawyers than in the rest of the countries put together, the normal term is "lawyer" or "attorney at law", or less commonly "counselor at law". They are all the same thing. Licensing is by state (or territory, like Puerto Rico, Guam, etc.), although the federal courts (and some federal agencies and the military) have their own rules.
In England/Wales, there are "solicitors" and "barristers". Solicitors are the first point of contact with clients and give general advice and may appear in some minor courts; they appoint barristers who do research and give specific advice and argue (plead cases) in court.
In France they have "avocats" and "conseillers". In Canada, a lawyer is a "solicitor and barrister". In Quebec a lawyer may be an "avocat, plaideur et conseiller juridique".
But really these are just titles. The training for any lawyer is the same, except that (in England) a solicitor will take a year's law course and serve a year as a clerk with a solicitor; a barrister will take a year's bar course and serve a year as a pupil wiith a barrister.
All of these people are "lawyers" or "jurists".
Is There A Lawyer In The House? If So Please Email Me.
Concerning A Civil Lawsuit!
There are many lawyers who answer questions here. Giving "general legal information" in the scope of a forum such as this is perfectly legal. To answer your "specific" questions, though, in a one-one exchange through email, would constitute "practicing law", so the lawyer would need to be licensed in your State, and would be opening himself up to liability.
If you want a question answered, post it here. If you need more than that, you need to find a local lawyer. You can look in the phone book, or search the database at www.lawyers.com by State and specialty.
