4 Ways To Help Your Lawyer Enable You To When you want a legal professional at all, you must work closely together in order to win your case. Regardless how competent they can be, they're gonna need your help. Listed below are four important ways to help your legal team assist you to win: 1. Be Totally Honest And Up Your lawyers need and expect your complete cooperation - whatever information you're planning to reveal for them. Privilege means anything you say is held in confidence, so don't hold anything back. Your legal team needs to know all things in advance - most importantly information the other side could check out and surprise you with later. 2. Provide Meticulous Records Keep an ongoing and factual account of most information associated with your case. Whether it's witnesses or payments being made, provide your attorneys with the data they should enable them to win. 3. Show Up Early For All Those Engagements Not be late when you're appearing before a court and avoid wasting the attorney's time, too, when you are promptly, whenever. In fact, because you may have to discuss eleventh hour details or be extra ready for the truth you're facing, it's a smart idea to arrive early. 4. Demonstrate You Have Your Act Together If you've been arrested for just about any crime, it's important so that you can prove to the legal court that you simply both regret the actions and they are making strides toward boosting your life. By way of example, if you're facing driving under the influence, volunteer for a rehab program. Be sincere and involved with the cities the judge is presiding over. Working more closely together with your legal team increases your odds of absolute success. Try this advice, listen closely to how you're advised and ultimately, you need to win your case.

How Much Does An Attorney Make A Year?
Just An Average Attorney.
Or More Specifically An Estate Planning Attorney?
Or A Natural Resource/Oil Attorney?
Anything from nothing to $millions.
It's not the field of law so much, as the type and status of the clients. If you have only a few clients in a year, or do mostly pro bono work, you'll have no income. If you handle estate planning for Bill Gates, you'll have millions.

Child Custody Case Wasn'T Fair Yesterday?
Yesterday I Had A Court Case Involving My Daughter 10 And Son 8. 2 Days Before Christmas Of Last Year I Allowed My Children To Go Spend Time With Thier Grandmother And Father For The First Time In 8Yrs. They Where Never In The Kids Life Before Then. The Agreement Was That We Exchanged The Kids After New Years But When I Called Her To See When We Gonna Make The Exchange And Where We Was Gonna Meet And Also Asked Her To Send Her Address To My Phone The Grandmother Stopped Answering The Phone She Also Wasn'T Answering My Text Messages Anymore. I Found Out She Went Behind My Back And Filed For Custody With No Visitation Rights. I Then Went To The Address Thay Was On The Paper That The Grandmother Provided To Get My Children With Greenville N.C Police And They Told Me They Couldn'T Get Involved In Child Custody. So I Had To Wait For Court. Yesterday Custody Was Giving To The Grandmother Because I Didn'T Have A Lawyer The Judge Said I Didn'T Bring Enough Evidence. What Can I Do Now???
Okay, where to begin?
1) When children are born, *legally* the mother and father have equal rights.
2) When custody has not been established in court, the parents do not live together and are not married, and the case is brought to court: It is up to the parent who does NOT have physical custody (ie: the children living under their roof at that moment) to prove the other parent is unfit. What does that mean? It means that if your kids stayed at their house last night, YOU have to PROVE he's a bad dad, or it's a bad home, or a history of abuse, or that he can't support them.
And no, your word against his doesn't count as proof.
Legally, it's fair. The judge did what the law says he must. The police really can't get involved in custody disputes, and especially not based on your word. Morally... eh.
First and foremost, you need legal cousel. If you can't afford a lawyer, call 211 from your home phone, and they can tell you exactly who to call for help with that.
Beyond legal counsel... Proof is what you must have, or even the best lawyer in the world won't be able to help you.
What counts as proof? Well, if they've really lived with you, and only you, for 8 years, then you have lots of proof of his *neglect* and possible *abandonment*... Things like school and medical records, proving the children lived with you and you alone. Any prior settlements/agreements, either from court or in writing.
As for proving you didn't intend for the children to live with him... Unless you have something in writing, it will be a tough case.
1) You never, in 8? 10? years, thought to file for custody.
2) You sent your children to stay for months with a virtual stranger (relative or not).
3) You (apparantly) didn't get any kind of written record (including a temporary guardianship agreement allowing the children to be treated, medically, without you present)
4) You showed up in court without a lawyer, as if it were a minor thing like a traffic ticket.
Now, I'm not trying to judge you, but, honestly, this is what the JUDGE is going to be looking at, and I want you to know what you're up against. And it doesn't look good.
The ONLY thing you have going for you is the fact that he hasn't been in their lives. And even that is hard to prove. Once you prove they've lived with you, you still have to show that he hasn't been sharing summers, or overnight visits, and that you didn't just *send the kids to live with him* and then change your mind.
And if/when you prove that he is an unfit parent, you still have to prove to the judge that you can provide a stable home for them. Considering that 1-4 above will still be on his mind, that might be difficult.
Believe it or not, birthing/housing children (no matter how long) doesn't give you as many LEGAL rights as you think.
And only a lawyer can address all the OTHER hidden points of law not listed here.
In short? As the answer before me stated, get a lawyer. Which you should have done before it came to this. Otherwise, you won't get your kids back.
Please Tell Me About Alabama Criminal Defense Lawyer?
My One Friend Is In Usa And He Is In Prison, He Asks Me To Search Lawyer? How Can I Get Best Lwyer In Usa.
This is an odd question, and to be perfectly honest you're making it seem like you're not even a U.S. resident... That being said, it doesn't matter who you contact, no defense lawyer will take you seriously. Plus - they'll require a retainer just to begin the defense proceedings, usually means a couple thousand dollars to start. In other words, don't bother searching for defense counsel. Let your Alabaman friend (who I'm betting you've never actually met besides cyber space) get his own attorney. Luckily, even if he can't afford a defense lawyer, he can be appointed a public defender at no cost to him. So relax, let it go.
Step-Parents Legal Rights?
I Live In California And Am Married. I Have A 3 Year Old From A Previous Relationship. Does My Husband Have Any Legal Rights?
A stepparent's legal rights to a child really only extend to grounds to petition the court for them.
For example, if a stepfather has formed a close bound with his stepchildren, he could file for visitation in the event of a divorce, on the grounds that it is in the best interest of the children.
On the same grounds, he could petition for custody in the event of the death of their mother, providing the biological father wasn't surviving, wasn't known, or wasn't willing to seek custody.
It would be up to the court to decide each case based on the individual merits.
I Wasnt To Sue American Express For The Damage They Did To My Credit. What Kind Of Lawyer Do I Contact?
I Was A Victim Of Id Theft Over A Year Ago And American Express Issued On 1 Day, 2 Different Accounts With 4 Cards Each Under My Ssn To Strangers, Over The Phone Without Checking Any Form Of Id Or Calling Me (Like Other Companies Did).
My Fico Dropped Over 200 Points! Everytime I'M Rebuilding My Score They Drop My Limit Again (They Review Account Limits Every 6 Months), Which Consequently Drops My Score Again.
This Has Happenned 3 Times, And Now They Say That Since My Balance Is Too Close To The Limit And My Fico Score Not High Enough They Can'T Reinstate My Initial Credit Limit. (My Initial Limit Was $10K And My Balance Never Exceeded $2500. I'Ve Never Been Delinquent On My Payments. They Dropped My Limit To Exactly How Much I Owed, Making Me Have A High Balance)
I Had A Lawyer Write Them A Letter Demanding Them To Fix What They'Ve Created Since They Say They Offer 100% Protection And Recover For All Idtheft Victims.
They Said No To Reinstating My Limit And I Want To Sue
