4 Approaches To Help Your Lawyer Assist You To When you need a legal representative for any excuse, you should work closely with them in order to win your case. No matter how competent they are, they're planning to need your help. Here are four important strategies to help your legal team help you win: 1. Be Totally Honest And Up Your lawyers need and expect your complete cooperation - whatever information you're likely to reveal directly to them. Privilege means what you say is saved in confidence, so don't hold anything back. Your legal team should know everything in advance - most especially information one other side could find out about and surprise you with later. 2. Provide Meticulous Records Keep a continuous and factual account of all the information pertaining to your case. Whether it's witnesses or payments being made, provide your attorneys with all the current data they must help them win. 3. Show Up Early For Many Engagements Do not be late when you're appearing before a court and avoid wasting the attorney's time, too, by being on time, each and every time. Actually, because you may have to discuss very last minute details or even be extra ready for the truth you're facing, it's a good idea to arrive early. 4. Demonstrate That You May Have Your Act Together If you've been arrested for any kind of crime, it's important so that you can convince a legal court that you just both regret the actions and therefore are making strides toward enhancing your life. As an example, if you're facing driving under the influence, volunteer for a rehab program. Be sincere and included in the community the judge is presiding over. Working more closely with the legal team increases your likelihood of absolute success. Follow these tips, listen closely to how you're advised and ultimately, you ought to win your case.

Should I Contact A Real Estate Attorney?
I Was In The Process Of Getting A Property Through Hud. My Lender Made A Typographical Error In My Name (Sarah Instead Of Sara) On The Pre-Approval Letter. Hud Contacted My Broker On Friday And Told Us That We Needed It Changed Within 24 Hours, Or Else The Deal Was Dead. Problem Was That My Lender At Wells Fargo Was On Vacation, And Wouldn'T Return Until The Following Monday. No One At The Office Could Change My Name, But Were Able To Make The Other Changes That Hud Had Asked For (Signature Location, Etc...). My Broker Was Contacted On Monday, And They Cancelled The Deal And Returned My Earnest Money! I Don'T Understand How This Is Legal? It Wasn'T An Error On My Part, And Yet I Was Denied A Property. This Is A Special Circumstance However, I Am A Teacher, And Was Offered A Property Under The Good Neighbor Next Door Program. This Program Gives Me 50% Off The Purchase Price Of Certain Homes In My Area. I'M Concerned That This Was Just There Way Of Not Letting Me Get The Discount And Trying To Get Me To Buy It At Full Cost. I Submitted My Offer On Time, And It Was Accepted Immediately. I Need Advice! Should I Contact An Attorney That Specializes In Real Estate? Or Should I Just File A Formal Complaint Against Hud? Or Both? Thanks In Advance For Any Insight And/Or Advice!
Yes, painful as it is, you need one of the most revolting practitioners around - a real estate lawyer with HUD experience. It's worth the money. Hurry b/c there is still time to apply pressure before initiating lawsuit for lost oppty. It is ludicrous to lose a property b/c of a facial error so easily corrected.
International Child Custody Lawyers? Please Read!?
My Friends Husband Left Her And Took Their Son Across Seas To Jordan Without Her Knowledge, They Are Now Divorced, The Ex-Husband Left The Child With His Family In Jordan And Took Off To Chicago To Live. My Friend Desperately Wants Her Son Back But Doesn'T Know Where To Start.. Can Anyone Help ? I Would Greatly Appreciate Any Advice. Thank You!
(This section is not the best venue for answers on this topic.)
Your friend should consult with local lawyers to find experts in this difficult field. I have read of cases where the mother chose to have someone go to Jordan and extricate the child. If the father himself is physically in the U.S. (as you stated), the first thing a decent lawyer should do is ensure that he stays local and is not allowed to travel abroad ever again until the child is returned to his mother's custody.
"If a Jordanian parent chooses to remain in Jordan or leave a child behind in Jordan, the U.S. Embassy cannot force either the parent or the Jordanian Government to return the child to the United States...."

Why Fathers Are Discriminated In Child Custody Cases?
They Usually Win The Child Custody
Which Is Very Unfortunate For
I Have Seen Many Mothers Who
Don'T Even Allow Fathers To See
Their Own Children.
I Mean Who Has Given Them The
Right To Prevent Their Own Child To
Meet His Or Her Father ??
Don'T Give Me The Reason That
Mothers Carry Child For 9 Months
Because If It Aren'T For Fathers
They Don'T Have Anything To Carry
Or Give Birth In The First Place .

Why Do Women Win Custody?
There are many reasons why women win custody in the overwhelming number of cases. Chief among them: Because that's the way it's always been. Traditionally, men worked and women stayed home to raise children. Although that is less frequently the case these days, there is still a bias toward women in child custody cases.
From a biological perspective, we are more inclined to think of the mother-child relationship than the father-child relationship. Many people make the automatic assumption that women are more nurturing as parents than men.
In awarding custody, judges will decide what's in the best interests of the children. In determining "best interests," the judge will look at a number of factors, including:
•Which parent has the most suitable character and temperament to serve as custodian?
•What is the child's relationship with each parent?
•What child-rearing skills does each parent have?
•Does either parent have an illness or habits that may harm the child?
•Which parent will provide the best home environment?
•Does the child have stronger emotional ties to one parent?
•Is one parent better suited to meet the child's special needs?
•Who has the child been living with?
•What is each parent's employment status?
•What is the financial status of each parent?
•What is each parent's apparent motive for seeking custody?
•Is either parent unfit to have custody?
•Which parent is the most likely to allow the child to continue his or her relationship with the other parent and extended family?
Some of these factors have a natural bias that favors mothers over fathers.

The stupidest thing I've ever seen was when I was working as a carpenter on a Commercial Project for a GC.
We were building a strip mall and all he did was, push, push and push the men. He had brought in a Bobcat to dig the trenches for the Plumbers. He also scheduled the Store Front men to install the Windows. So there they were installing the storefronts and after they were done, he realized they couldnt get the Bobcat out. Everyone of the job laughed there heads off ..................
Community Service Law In Uae?
With The New Law Being Passed, I Have Not Been Able To Find Out A List Of Minor Offences That Would Come Under This Classification. Frankly, I Am Surprised That The Government Is Willing To Reduce Its Revenue From The Fines And Impose This Law.
I Am Sure That Traffic, Debt Related Fraud And Blasphemy Would All Be Excluded. Apart From Littering (Which Is A Major Problem Here) I Wonder What Other Minor Offences Would Come Under This Law ?
I think community service has to be done for a minimum of 24 hours. Maybe "crimes" like men taking pictures of women at the beaches, theft of something cheap, being drunk in the public (not driving and not for Muslims), driving without a valid license, etc., especially when it's for the first time.
Littering will not fall under this Law unless you press charges:))
At least all cases which are taking to court and then the judge has to decide: community service or jail.
That's my understanding of the Community Service Law.
PS. Wonder if I ever will see a Westener cleaning the streets or watering the plants:))

Thanks So Much.
It's not just for Bipolar - its for all mental illnesses.
There are two acts you should be aware of - the first is the Baker Act which allows for a 72 hour hold of a mentally ill person who may be a danger to himself or to others. During that 72 hours, the patient will be evaluated and if the hospital feels they are still a danger, and the patient will not voluntarily admit themselves for further treatment, the hospital can go to court and ask that the patient be involuntarily admitted.
The second thing is called a Rogers Order. This is a court ordered involuntary medication order. Often a mentally ill person on medication will begin to believe he or she is cured, and no longer needs the meds. They go off the meds, and subsequently decompensate. Often this will happen several times.
You can seek a Rogers order with the hospital's assistance, but listen to their counsel first.
Courts can be hesitant to make Rogers orders and you often need compelling proof. What it all boils down to is if the person is competent on medication, and makes a decision at that time to stop taking meds, it is in fact a competent decision. The person knows and understands the issues at hand. Once he or she decompensates, you can't really get a Rogers order, because the person is no longer competent to be able, even with the assistance of counsel, to make decisions on their own. See what I mean? It's sticky.
Start with Baker Acting her and see how she does with the 3 day hold. Sort out temporary custody of the 2 year old. Be prepared for a rocky rocky road.
