Any Family Court Attorneys Out There Willing To Go Pro Bono?
I'M An Illegal Immigrant ,.Recently Divorced With Two Kids. I Couldnt Afford An Attorney,..Because I Didnt Contest The Divorce,..The Judge Said I Was In 'Default' And Awarded Her Sole Custody,..With Supervised Visitation,...And She Is Allowed Toleave The State With My Kids Whenever She Wants. I Have Been Demanded To Pay Child Support Of $ 1,040 A Month And Have Been Currently Unemployed For Almost Two Years Due To My Illegal Immigration Status. I Earnt Great Money One Year And The Judge Based My Support From That.I Dont Have That Job Anymore Because Of My Status.I Was Additionally Dragged Into Criminal Court For Domestic Abuse.That Was A Ploy To Get Custody And Was Thrown Out.,...I Cannot See My Children,..Have Arranged With The Ex Several Times,..But At The Last Minute She Backs Out. I Originally Defaulted In My Supervised Visitation,..Because After Several Attempts To Call,..All I Got Was An Answering Machine,...The Judge Frowned Upon That And Gave Supervised Visitation Again,Advice?
First of all why do you have supervised visitation? You need to contact a father's rights group to help you out. Family court is like going back to the stone age. Go to legal aid services. Even if your not legally in this country they will help you do to no income. Why don't you get a landscaping or farm workers job? Even a busboy or kitchen help in a restaurant that will pay under the table? The courts always see that the woman are supposed to be the better parent. In actuality that both parents should be constant in a childs life. There have been studies done that prove this. Philadelphia Department of Human Services did their own study concerning how children react when fathers are forbidden to see the children. Also it focused on when fathers who see their child on a regular basis and is thrown into jail for not paying child support.
What the courts did along with your wife is called legal kidnapping of your children. You should refile custody in the courts and get a new hearing in order for you to get visitation or partial custody. Also, your wife can not leave the state with your children without your permission if she flies. She can not leave the country without your permission. It is kidnapping and you can report it. This past year the state of PA passed a law that if a person files a false PFA and it is found out that it is false that person will do no less than 6 months in jail for perjury. Family court is the most abused court system in the country. Fathers have no rights at all. Our basic right is thrown out. Judges won't change the sytem. Lawyers are too afraid or worried if they try to fight the system that they won't make their money. Lawyers are the problem to the system. Judges that were lawyers are lawyers who couldn't make it as lawyers and now are screwing the system even more. As a divorced father of 2 children I am always being dragged into court for one thing or another. I do see my children every week on a regular basis.
Custody Vs. Guardianship?
My Ex Currently Has Physical Custody Of Boys, We Share Joint Legal. Kids Are 15 & 16. They Came For Summer Visit & Refused To Go Back To Dad. We Are Now Battling It Out In Court. I Didn'T Force Them To Go Back. Now Ex Says He Will Give Me 'Guardianship' Not 'Custody' Of The Boys. He Is In The Military & I Guess He Can Do This Under Some &Quot;Soldier Act' From 1939. What'S The Difference Between Having Legal Guardianship Or Legal Custody. Seem Like It Would Be The Same Thing. Anybody Know?
What state are you in? Each state defines custody and guardianship a little differently.
For example, the Illinois Probate Act defines "Guardian" as a legal representative of a minor.
The Juvenile Court Act contains perhaps the best and most comprehensive definitions:
(7) "Emancipated minor" means any minor 16 years of age or over who has been completely or partially emancipated under the "Emancipation of Mature Minors Act", ...
(8) "Guardianship of the person" of a minor means duty and authority to act in the best interests of the minor, subject to residual parental rights and responsibilities, to make important decisions in matters having a permanent effect on the life and development of the minor and to be concerned with his or her general welfare. It includes but is not necessarily limited to:
(a) the authority to consent to marriage, to enlistment in the armed forces of the United States, or to major medical, psychiatric, and surgical treatment; to represent the minor in legal actions; and to make other decisions of substantial legal significance concerning the minor;
(b) the authority and duty of reasonable visitation, except to the extent that these have been limited in the best interests of the minor by court order;
(c) the rights and responsibilities of legal custody except where legal custody has been vested in another person or agency; and
(d) the power to consent to the adoption of the minor, but only if expressly conferred on the guardian in accordance with Section 2-29, 3-30, or 4-27.
(9) "Legal custody" means the relationship created by an order of court in the best interests of the minor which imposes on the custodian the responsibility of physical possession of a minor and the duty to protect, train and discipline him and to provide him with food, shelter, education and ordinary medical care, except as these are limited by residual parental rights and responsibilities and the rights and responsibilities of the guardian of the person, if any.
In AZ, A guardianship can be filed when someone other than the parent wants to be appointed by the Court to take over parental responsibilities and neither living parent (whose parental rights have not been severed [terminated or cut off] by Court order) will file papers or go to Court to oppose the appointment. Guardians take over parental responsibilities for making decisions regarding housing, medical care, and education, among other things, for as long as the guardianship lasts. An order of guardianship is good until the Court changes or dismisses it, the child turns 18, or either parent files papers to terminate the guardianship. Guardianship is based on the parents' permission, or at least their failure to object to the guardianship. If either of the
parents later changes his or her mind and lets the Court know that he or she objects to the guardianship, the Court has no choice but to end the guardianship, but may refer the matter
for investigation as to whether a Dependency is needed.
Is A Personal Injury Lawyer Necessary If Accident Occurs In Store?
I Was Injured At A Local Store. A Display Type Box (Above Shoulder Height On Shelf) Of The New Style Large Curved Shower Curtain Rods Fell On My Head And Shoulder. (It Contained 5 Of These Curtain Rods) I Reported It To The Store Manager On Duty As None Of The Employees I Came In Contact With Cared To Do Anything About The Incident, And A Few Days Later Someone Called To Check Up On Me And I Told Them I Wanted To File A Claim.
A Representative For The Claim Called And Recorded Our Conversation And Said If I Sought Medical Care To Call Back And They Would Send Out A Medical Release Form For Me To Sign. I Told Her That I Definitely Needed To Seek Chiropractic Care As The Box Falling On My Head And Shoulder Have Aggravated A Pre-Existing Condition. (I Realize Now That I Probably Shouldn'T Have Mentioned That Fact) She Went Ahead And Mailed Out A Form.
Problem Is, We Just Moved Here And I Have No Form Of Transportation Or Insurance. I Am Unable To Work Due To Other Health Problems, But Do Not Receive Disability. We Rely Solely On My Fiance'S Income And Whatever We Need Has To Wait Til He Gets Off Work. I Finally Found A Chiropractor That I Could Attend As I Have Multiple Chemical Sensitivities And It Takes Some Time To Find An Office That Has No Fragrances Being Used, Lysol Etc.
I Have Been There At Least 6 Times Now And Am Doing Better, But Still Require Adjustments 2X Week Currently. Almost Ready For Once A Week Visits And Hopefully Once A Month After That.
The Store Representative Had Told Me If I Sought Medical Care To Call And Let Her Know And They Would Look At My Records And See If They Would Come To A Settlement. She Said I Could Go Anywhere I Wanted For Treatment.
Is It Common For A Company To Have You Fill Out A Medical Release Form That Says They Can Request Access To Medical Records Other Than The Ones Directly Related To An Incident? It'S Been Almost A Month And I Haven'T Signed The Form Yet, But She Called The Other Day And Left A Message Asking If I'D Received Care And To Call Her. I Don'T Know What To Do About The Form?
Should I Fill It Out And See What Kind Of A Settlement If Any They Come Back With Before Contacting A Lawyer Or Should I Contact A Lawyer Before Signing The Form. It Looks Like A Standard, Generic Accident Compensation Form For Work Or Consumer. Basically, It Has You Check A Box Of What Kind Of Claim It Is And Then Asks Your Signature For Release Of Any Medical Records And Requires A Social Security Number. That Is The Part That Bothers Me Most, I Guess. I Am Always Leary Of Giving That Info Out. I Know It Is Probably Standard Practice. The Store Seems To Be Cooperating Currently And Appears To Just Want The Medical Release Form Sent In Order For Them To Come To A Settlement..... If Any.
Again, I Do Not Work And I Have No Transportation. So Money Is Very Limited And Time Is Also As My Fiance' Already Works 10-12Hr Days Regularly And We Find It Very Difficult To See The Chiro 2X Week. Trying To Also Fit In Time To See A Lawyer Would Be Extremely Difficult, But We Would Do What We Need To If It Is Something We Should Do Instead Of Filling Out This Form.
Is There A Time Limit On Filling This Out Also?
No, a lawyer is not required. If you decide to hire an attorney, be aware that he will get 33% plus expenses of any settlement you get. The store's insurance company does not pay you more just because you got a lawyer. If you decide to hire an attorney it's your choice and your responsibility to pay him. Not the stores responsibility. Not the insurance company's. The attorney's fee comes from your settlement. You hire him - you pay him.
An injury settlement is based on the injury. The injury is what it is. A lawyer does not change that.
My two cents- if things are going well with the insurance company, then there is no reason to hire an attorney. You can always do it later if you want to - if it gets to the point that its worth it to give 1/3 of your settlement to a guy that does not need the money as much as you do.
If the insurance company is working with you, then there is no reason to hire an attorney. It's not something you have to do at the beginning. You can wait and see what the insurance company does then decide if its worth your time and money to hire an attorney.
As far as telling about your prior medical history goes - no harm in that. If you have treated with the chiro before, that's going to show up in the bills/records any way. You are only owed for the injury caused by this incident - not prior problems. So there is no harm in being honest. Just speaks well of your character and gives you more credibility (at least in my opinion).
As far as the medical release -yes, that's normal. In order get copies of the medical bills/reports from the chiro that is treating you the insurance company has to have the signed medical authorization.
The insurance company will not pay medical bills as they are received. Once you are done with treatment and have been released, then the insurance company will order copies of the bills/records. They will evaluate the records and then make you an offer.
Once they make you an offer- you can accept it or make a counter offer.
Once you and the insurance company reach an agreement on a settlement amount, the insurance company will send you a final release to sign and return. Once the release is received back then the insurance company will mail the check to you.
