Is An Undated Power Of Attorney Valid?
Laws vary by state. Generally, a date is required on a legal document whenever that date might be relevant. The blanket statement that all legal documents require dates is incorrect.
As far as a power of attorney, this allows a person (the agent) to act on behalf of another person. Dates on the document might become relevant if there is a question of whether the agent was acting before or after the power of attorney had been signed. Without a date, there may be grounds to challege the action as not having been authorized at the time.
All such laws vary by state. Check your local listings for details.

If you need help finding a lawyer in your area, try the state bar association web site.
If you have found lawyers, but they are unwilling to take your case, that may be because you don't have one that they can win. Lawyers run businesses, and if a potential client walks in, and doesn't have a case or can't pay, most lawyers will not be willing to represent them. Additionally, lawyers have a professional obligation to not make frivolous arguments to the court, and they may deem your case to be frivolous.
I'm not saying you don't have a case, just that that may be a reason lawyers aren't taking yours.
Whats The First Step In Taking Fathers Rights?
I Am A 27 Year Old Single Mom Who Has Two Kids With My Soon To Be Ex Husband. He Is An Alcoholic, And A Drug Addict And When I Set The Standard For What I Expected, He Bailed. He Has Never Been There For His Kids. Even When We Were Under The Same Roof He Was Worthless. Because I Met Someone Whom I Am Very Much Committed To And Now Living With, He Ran Back To A Girl He Has Ignored For 6 Years And Has A 7 Year Old With, Whom He Has Also Avoided Like The Plague. I Want His Rights. I Want To Know That They Are Safe From Him And What He Is Currently Doing To His 7 Year Old Daughter. I Want To Know That If He Ever Shows Up On My Doorstep, I Can Say &Quot;You Have No Business Here&Quot;. He Denies Paternity And Refuses To Get The Tests (They Are His Kids, He Is Honestly Trying To Avoid Responsibility) So I Need To Know What The First Step Is, And How This Whole Process Works. I Refuse To Allow An Alcoholic And A Drug Addict Be The Standard That Is Set For A Father Figure For My Children. Any Help Would Be Appreciated. Thanks.
Taking the father's rights away via the judicial system hardly changes the fact that he IS the children's biological father. You made a bad choice when you chose to let him impregnate you, and you cannot 'change' that judicially. Maybe the 'standard' you set, should have been set BEFORE you ever had sex with him. Thanks (in part) to YOUR choices, an alcoholic and drug addict IS the father of your two kids. You may be able to keep him from seeing or having further responsibility for the kids, but he will ALWAYS be their biological father. And kids have a way of wanting to KNOW that info as they get older, and may end up actually resenting what you have done.
There are consequences for our actions, the good ones as well as the bad ones...
As far as taking his rights away, you have to prove to the judge that the father's influence over the children (if allowed) would be sufficiently harmful to the CHILDREN to DEPRIVE him of his rights. Depending on the judge, that may (or may not) be difficult. You have to build a legal case. It sounds like you have good grounds, although I have seen judges that will go either way- NOT based on law, but on the judges whims. That is another problem with "activist judges".
Are Civil Attorneys Free?
Well I Thought I Would Contact A Public Defender To Get Advice On A Case But Since I'M Not A Criminal They Wouldn'T Help Me :[ They Told Me To Contact A Civil Attorney
So Yeah Never Gotten In Trouble Before So I'M Not Sure
Are They Free?
I'M A College Student (Don'T Have A Car To Sell Or House) So I Can'T Afford Anything
Just Want Advice On Legal Stuff
Civil attorneys are not free. There are civil plaintiff attys, one who sues someone else, and there are civil defense attys, one who defends a person being sued. There are personal injury attys, medical malpractice attys, contract attys, family law, property and probate, all kinds of attys for all kinds of things.
That being said, there are free legal advice places in all cities. They all have different names, but you can do a google search for "pro bono attorneys," and you might get some lists of attys who do some pro bono work. There is also a website -- the name escapes me -- but it's something like "legal ask dot com," something like that. You can ask a legal question, and several attys will jump on and answer your questions as carefully as they can. There may be a small fee, or a donation, but it won't be hundreds or thousands of dollars.
There are also lots of attys who work for large firms who donate their time to so many hours of pro bono (free) legal work. I wish I could remember the term used for free legal counsel for the indigent in civil cases, I just can't. Mind's blank.
Without better info, I don't know where to send you, or what kind of lawyer you're looking for.
Hope this helps.
Does A Judge Have To Give A Reason For Denying An Ex-Parte Motion In A Family Law Case In California?
The judge is never required to give a reason for anything. The reason is because that's what the law requires.
Which One Of These Candidates Is More Likely To Be Hired For A Top Law Firm?
1) Candidate A Is A Recent Graduate Of Uc Davis School Of Law. He Obtained A Bachelors Degree At Uc Riverside. He Received Only Average Grades Throughout His Schooling, But Has Worked As A Paralegal As Well As For The Federal Government And He Has Interned For Courthouses And Law Firms.
2) Candidate B Is A Recent Graduate Of Columbia Law School. He Obtained His Bachelors At Irvine. He Graduated Magna *** Laude From Uc Irvine And *** Laude From Law School. But He Has No Work/Internship Experience Whatsoever.
Candidate B, no question. Firms spend 5 years + training new associates before they're actually productive. Experience is a plus, but only if it's relevant, and it rarely is. Paralegal experience isn't, and internships are good but not nearly enough to make up the difference between average grades at an average law school and pretty good grades at a top law school when the firm will have to train the person anyway. A firm might hire Candidate A over B if he was a summer associate at the same firm or if the federal government experience was highly relevant and at a high level - like ten years at the SEC for a firm that works on SEC violations.
As a side note, there is not a single graduate of Columbia law school who has no work or internship experience.
