Could Caylee'S &Quot;Grandmother&Quot; Win A Wrongful Death Lawsuit?
&Quot;Casey Anthony May Not Be Off The Hook Yet – She Still Could Face A Possible Wrongful Death Lawsuit Being Masterminded By The Man Who Pinned A Multi-Million Dollar Judgment Against O.J. Simpson.
After A Jury Acquitted Anthony Of Charges That She Killed 2-Year-Old Daughter Caylee, A Famed Celebrity Lawyer Has Signed On To Represent Donna Maclean, A Massachusetts Woman Who Claims To Be The Tiny Tot'S Lost Grandmother.&Quot;
Jane Velez Mitchell reported about this woman on her show before the trial ended, and before the verdict.I take it that her attorney is advising her now, not to go to the media anymore until they know more about what's going on. I was wondering if I was going to be hearing more about this woman who could be the grandmother of Caylee. If she turns out to be Caylee's biological grandmother, and if she wanted to, then yes she could file a wrongful death suit against Casey.
Just for the record, they do not have to show how a person died, to get a verdict or file a wrongful death suit. Many have been tried and convicted without ever finding a body. A guilty verdict does not require the cause of death or even a body for that matter, and nether does a wrongful death suit. Those saying that it does, need to do their home work, so they can at least try to get their facts straight.
Civil Law Lawyer?
To Become A Civil Law Lawyer, What Are The Procedures? And What Classes Do You Take In College? What Degree Must You Earn? Etc.
Okay, you're going to need to take the path that any potential lawyer must take. First attend college, it does not matter which college or really what you major in. Recommended majors for law students are English and Philosihpy, as they prove to be the best in preparing students for the LSAT. You can do the pre-law track at your college, which will prepare you for law school courses, or maybe political science. The bottom line is that you can major in anything in undergraduate and still apply to law school and do well.
Around your junior year of college start studying for the LSAT (Law School Admissions Test) Visit LSAC.org to register and learn more about the exam. You can take a prep course through Kaplan (kaplan.com) or Princeton Review (princetonreview.com)...they claim to help raise your test costs by ten points. The LSAT ranges from 120-180 in points and the average is 150. What score you should earn depends on what schools you want to attend. Research law schools on-line, visit, ask about their civil law programs and develop a list of schools that you think are a good fit. Around the end of your junior year start to look at applications for law schools to see what you need to have (LSAC.org has law school applications online). Ask professors for letters of recommendation and make sure your GPA is still strong. Apply to law schools, get in and then from there start to talk to law school counselors about a track in civil law.

Can Somebody Recommend A Good Lawyer (Or Law Firm) In Singapore, Specializing In Family Law?
I Am Interested In Lawyers Who Have Experience In Handling Prenups, Divorce, Child Custody Issues, Especially In Marriages Between A Singapore Citizen And An Expatriate. Thanks!
It's funny that people give advice about the topics they know nothing about.
In fact, the largest (by number of lawyers & employee, revenue), most recognised and well-respected law firm in Singapore is Allen & Gledhill. It has been named Singapore Law Firm of the Year by International Law Review since 2000-2007 (7 years in a row). They are the best one, but for your needs ANY family lawyers should be able to look after you.
Here are my suggestions.
1.) First, plan on how much you want to spend on the lawyer, there is no point asking for a good lawyer who you can't afford.
2.) As a tip, the pre-nuptial agreement should be rather standard and uncomplicated (I have been through the process). You and your partner will need to agree on the terms (e.g. percentage to give/receive, living arrangement after the divorce) BEFORE instructing the lawyer to draft the agreement.
3.) Stay firm with what is agreed, otherwise the lawyer will just try to charge more money to correct the draft. We spent SGD2400 in total, which is on the high end.
4.) As for the divorce, child custody etc; these issues usually are covered in the pre-nuptial which is rather standard. If a legal battle is still necessary; work out your budget and weigh the cost/benefit (emotionally, financially etc). If it is worth it, then you can go all out and hire the best.
5.) Ask for an itemised invoice so you know what you are charged for, the charge can be per minute, 6-min, 10-min block etc. Also document the date/time and topic discussed during each meeting and phone conversation for your own record. If you need to dispute the final charge, the record will really help you.
6.) If the chosen lawyer doesn't provide the standard of service that you'd expect, don't be afraid to voice your discontentment (but do it as it happends not at the end) and refuse to pay for the bad service. Use your itemised invoice to justify what you are willing/not willing to pay for.
7.) Also you need to be wary about the country where you both get married, and whether the marriage is recognised in both bride/groom's country. This might become an issue when things don't work out. Ask your lawyer for more details
I Seeing A Divorce Attorney This Morning For A Consultation?
Do I Fill Her In On All The &Quot;Bad Stuff&Quot; That My Ex Could Use Against Me So He Can'T Have It As Ammo?
Also, What Should I Expect From This Consultation? What All Does She Need To Know.
As a divorce lawyer, I always want to know everything good or bad and even if it is not totally true, I really need to know what the other side will say about you. To be honest, the bad stuff is rarely as bad as people think and it is always better to be informed than to be surprised. If you think your spouse has seen an attorney, let your layer know that as well.
Bring every bit of financial information you can find. Pay stubs and tax returns are vital. The attorney needs to know what you will be interested in fighting for and what you care about Try not to get bogged down in who gets the toaster, but think about the house, the retirement funds, the cars and the big stuff. Bring information about your debts as well. Organized is better if possible
If you have kids, that should be the focus. Begin to think about parenting time and decision making. Also think about who may be able to testify about your parenting and that of your spouse.
You also need to be ready to ask about the lawyer's qualifications and whether this is the right one for you. Does he specialize in family law? How often does she practice in the Court you will file in? Does he settle more cases or try more? What experts does he expect to use? Does she return phone calls? Also ask about billing and costs, as these cases can get expensive.
Your divorce lawyer will end up knowing more about you than your mother, so you need to be very comfortable with him or her. If not, look for another one. Good luck, this is always hard.
Child Custody W/O Attorney?
I Have Court Hearing Tomorrow Morning For Custody Of My 11Month Old Daughter. I Couldnt Afford An Attorney So Iam Going To Represent Myself. Iam Very Nervous..Any Advise Please???? This Is The Thing Or Court Date Was Set For July 2011 But He, My Babys Father Went To The Court House And Asked For An Emergency Hearing So Now We Have The Hearing On Friday And We Have Not Even Gone To A Mediator..What Do You Think Will Happen??? I Really Wanted To See A Mediator Before We Speak To A Judge! Any Advise???..We Wouldnt Of Been Going Through This If He Were Mature Enough And And Respected Our Verbal Agreement.
If you BOTH agree to a mediator, then that is a possibility. A lawyer won't be granted to you in a civil matter. The child will be granted a lawyer. (a guardian-lit em) to look out for the child's best interests. If the judge granted the emergency hearing, there must be something a little out of whack. Your best best is going through the mediator and working something out with the child's father. Judges can be harsh.
