A lot of individuals do not think about finding a lawyer till they are in desperate need. The lawful problem may possibly be personal, like family law, for a divorce or separation or if you are looking for a bankrupcy or trust legal professional. It may be a felony condition you want to be defended on. Companies want attorneys as well, regardless if they are being sued for discrimination, sexual harassment, or perhaps unjust business tactics. Tax law firms are also effective while dealing with government challenges. Just like doctors, lawyers have areas. A big, full service law firm has many legal professionals with various areas of experience, so based upon on your personal legal issue, you can immediately retain the top legal professional to match your current need without having to start your search each time you need legal assistance.It is most effective to obtain a lawyer you can believe in. You want one with a very good track record, who isfrank, productive, and wins cases. You really want to have assurance that they will defend you thoroughly and bill you reasonably for their services. Sometimes a recommendation from a close friend or business affiliate can be valuable, having said that you should keep your options open and review all the firms accessible, simply because when you require legal help, you need it immediately and you need the very best you can afford to pay for.

I Would Like To Expand On My Question Of , Can I Still Get Alimony After Being Divorced For 3 Yrs?
I Was Married For 24 Yrs. , I Was A Stay At Home Wife Taking Care Of Two Kids, Cooking And Cleaning. I Did Not Go To Work Until My Youngest Was 10. I Was A Good Wife And Mother, But I Fell Out Of Love With My Husband After 20 Yrs Of Marriage After He Admitted To Having A One Night Stand With A Friend Of Ours. I Did Not Work Since I Had Young Children. So I Stayed In The Marriage For Another 4 Yrs. But Things Got Worse And I Couldn'T Stay Any Longer. He Didn'T Want The Divorce But He Started It By Getting A Lawyer. I Was Stupid And Didn'T Get One. I Walked Away With A Trailer And My Car And Asked For No Alimony. I Let My Ex Keep The House Since It Was Near His Family. I Do Work And Have Worked For 10 Yrs. Now Making The Minimun Wage And Barely Making Ends Meet, While He Has A Good Paying Job. It Sounds Like I'M Just Plain Out Of Luck, But I'M Hoping That Something Can Be Changed.
Alimony, also called maintenance in some states, is money paid by one spouse to the other after a divorce for the purpose of support. Husbands as well as wives are sometimes appropriate candidates for alimony.
Mention of the word "alimony" often elicits strong emotional responses. In the past, before so many women worked outside the home, the husband was the one who paid, and he paid more if he was at fault in the divorce. Sometimes, if the wife was at fault, she was not granted alimony.
At the present time, a very small percentage of divorces or separations even involve the payment of alimony; of those that do, an even smaller number receive alimony for more than a brief period of time. Fault is no longer a factor in granting or limiting alimony in more than half of the states. Ask your mediator about the alimony situation in your state- in Texas, for example, you must be married for more than 10 years to receive alimony- as it's important to understand the factors considered in your specific situation.
Permanent alimony is generally reserved for an elderly, unskilled spouse and a marriage of lengthy duration, or the spouse of a wealthy person who would be totally unable to maintain the standard of living the wealthy spouse had been providing. Dolores worked with a couple, for example, where the wife had supported her older artist husband for many years. Although she wasn't wealthy, she earned four times her husband's income. In this case the wife agreed to pay long- term alimony.
If you successfully negotiate for any alimony, it will probably be rehabilitative - to be paid for a specific period of time so that you can develop a way to earn a satisfactory living or qualify for a promotion. The other option is temporary alimony, which is intended to compensate you for time spent in the past helping your spouse with his or her business or career, or in some circumstances, for time you will spend without full- time employment until your child reaches a certain age.
You will need to negotiate about whether you will receive any payments, and if so, how much and for how long. You will want to be sure there is enough money available, in accordance with the child support guidelines, for child support and child-related expenses before alimony is negotiated. Then the income and expenses of both you and your spouse must be considered to determine if alimony is appropriate. Take a realistic look at your personal financial situation, have a complete physical examination, and try to make the best possible assessment of your present and future needs, especially with regard to when and under what circumstances you can become self-sufficient. These considerations will help you negotiate for an appropriate amount of alimony.
You will probably want to include in your agreement some events which would result in the termination of alimony. For example: if circumstances change for the spouse who's paying, or if you remarry or live continuously with a lover who is contributing to the household income. See also question 4:Do alimony payments stop if I live with a new partner (cohabit) or remarry?
If you don't have alimony in your agreement, generally you can't add it once you're divorced, even if circumstances change. If, however, you are negotiating for alimony and you think circumstances may change, you can spell out terms for adjusting the payments in the future.
Information On Murder Penalties? I Need A Lawyer'S Advice?
Okay, So I Know Someone, 17, Who Killed Someone Due To A Bad Drug Deal. I Was Curious What Penalties This Person Will Face Being Under 18. I Always Hear Murder Is Life In Prison But Also, All The Time You Hear Of People Getting Out Early For Good Behavior And Other Stuff. So Like What Is The Least And Most Serious Punishment This Person Could Face? Also, Could The Use Of Drugs Play Into The Case And What Else Would Determine The Length Of Penalty. Could They Get The Death Penalty? Its In North Carolina Btw. I Would Like A Real Lawyer Or Judge To Answer, Not Some Random Persons Opinion.
Based on my limited knowledge of the law (I'm not an attorney), that person can be tried as an adult. Either way, there will likely be additional charges, based on what you wrote. First you have the murder, of course. Then you have the multiple charges of drugs. Plus there are charges dependent on the method of the murder. If it was a gun, then you have charges such as illegal possession, illegal discharge of a firearm, possession of a weapon in crime, etc. Similar charges if it was a knife.
So the shortest prison sentence I've ever heard of for murder was 7 years, plus the additional minimum for drug possession plus distribution would probably be around 5, then the weapons charges which could bring another 5 at the minimum. So based on my limited knowledge, I come up with 17 years at the absolute minimum.
By the way, it won't be the minimum - judges absolutely hate people who kill someone over a bad drug deal. My guess is that he'll get 20-30 years, possibly life.
But if you want a more accurate legal answer, you should ask a qualified lawyer based in the state where it happened.
Hello, My Name Is Drew. I'M Being Sued In Small Court By A Friend . It All Started When My Friend Called Me And Asked For A Ride Back From Work. I Agreed And I Went To Pick Him Up. As I Was Picking Him Up, I Slipped On Black Ice And Theven Car I Was Driving Hit Into The Side Walk And My Car Had To Be Towed. Me And My Friend Both Have Triple A. We Called And Triple A And They Said That The Nearest Tow Truck Was Three Hours Away On A Tow, He Did Not Want To Wait And Called Another Tow Truck, The Tow Truck Stated That I Would Have To Pay 250 To Get The Car Towed. I Told Him I Didn'T Have That Kind Of Money And That I Would Wait For The Tow Truck That Triple A Will Being. He Didn'T Want To Wait So He Said He Would Pay. I Told Him I Didn'T Have Money To Pay Him Back. Now He Suing Me In Court For This? For The Amount Of 285 With Court Costs.. Can He Do This?
Your friend is an awful immature trash friend and cut all ties with him soon as this is done.
Now, legally he can sue you for having bad breath, but that doesn't mean he is going to win. He probably is just trying to annoy you and waste time hoping you'll give in or not show up to court, because he has NO CASE AT ALL.
His whole argument is built on "He told me he would pay me back" lie which holds no value in court. That's a 3rd grader's argument of "he said so" and frankly I'd be surprised if the judge doesn't laugh in his face. All you have to do is show up to court on the required date and state the same story you told here. Then argue that NO WRITTEN NOTE or CONTRACT or LOAN was ever written or signed, therefore he cannot prove absolutely anything because there is no legal contract of loan. You hold no responsibility to pay back if someone decided to give you money, you didn't steal it, he did it on his own accord because he didn't want to wait and wanted to get to work.
Simple, easy closed case. Thank the Judge and say goodbye to your "friend" forever and delete him from your life. Good luck out there!
Does Guardian Have Custody Rights?
If A Parent Gives Temporary Guardianship To A Family Member That Is Related By Marriage, Then When That Parent Wants The Child Back And The Guardian Threatens To Take Custody If The Parent Takes The Child, Does The Guardian Have Rights To File For Custody Of The Child Against The Parent?
Regardless of whether it went through the courts or not, the parent signed away guardianship, not custody, so if the guardian is keeping the child against the parents wishes, then they are guilty of kidnapping. What the parent needs to do is send a certified letter to the temporary guardian telling them that they are revoking the temporary guardianship effective immediately and want the child returned to them in 48 hours. If the child is not returned to them, then they can file a kidnapping charge. The guardian certainly can file for custody, but it would be unusual for them to get it. And as far as the other responders are concerned, guardianship is not necessarily custody. It depends on how the temporary guardianship is worded. They are actually two separate entities.
What Is The Avg Fee Of A Estate Lawyer?
I Have One Handling My Case For About Two Years. I Inherited About $300,000, But Now Its Down To $250,000. This Lawyer Is Looking For My Deceased Moms Death Cert. I Was Left This Estate From My Aunt. I Thought It Was 5% Of The Estate. This Sullivan County. Your Thoughts Please
Most estate attorneys either work for a specified percentage of the total estate value (as seems to be the case here), or they work on an hourly fee. When this attorney started handling this case, he should have provided you with a written retainer agreement that clearly specified how he would be paid. If you do not have a copy of this, ask for a copy to be sent to you.
If you are having a dispute over the fee being charged and you can't work it out with your lawyer, then go to the state bar (you should be able to find their website online). I don't know where Sullivan County is, so I don't know what state you are in. However, each state bar in the country has a "fee dispute resolution process" where the bar will act as a neutral third party. They basically hear your side of the story first and find out why you think you are being mis-charged. Then they will go to the attorney, get a copy of all relevant documents, and ask for his side of the story. If they determine that you are, in fact, being overcharged, they can bring discipline charges against the attorney and force him to give the money back.
Believe me, attorneys take it VERY seriously when there is a fee dispute and the state bar gets involved. In fact, most attorneys are more than happy to sit down and discuss the issue with you and try to work it out. After all, if you aren't happy with them, that only increases the chance that they can kiss goodbye any repeat or referral business, not to mention that no attorney wants to get sued by a former client.
So get a copy of your retainer agreement and give your attorney a call to discuss the charges.
