Commom Law- Can A Woman Who Has Been Common-Law With Man Get Alamony And Does Legal Aid Help Her Re:Abuse?
Abuse, Cheating, Evil Intent For Over 10 Years My Daughters Best Friend From High School Needs Out But They R Common Law Does Legal-Aid Help Her Or Not. Can She Get Him For Alimony And Child Support Too Quest. Will Legal-Aid Help Her?
What legal aid will do depends upon the state, as does whether a common law marriage is recognized. Child support will be awarded regardless of whether the couple was legally married or just lived together.
If there is abuse, the clerk of court and/or the police may have court-approved forms that can be filled out and submitted at little or no costs so she can seek protection.
What Is The Starting Pay For A Criminal Defense Lawyer?
How Much Will A Person, Just Out Of Law School, Make In A Big City Law Firm As A Criminal Defense Attorney. Let'S Say Washington, Dc Or Boston, Ma. Please Answer Only If You Are A Lawyer Or Have A Vast Amount Of Knowledge In The Nature Of This Question. Thank You!
There are way too many variables to say for sure how much someone would make. If you start out with a firm, well, it would depend on the size of the firm. If it's a small firm, maybe as low as $55,000, maybe as high as, well, who knows, $100,000??? depending on how good a law school you went to and how good your grades were. If you go to a large firm, you might start as low as, say, $60,000, or you could start out in the low 100s. Depends on the firm and how badly they want you.
I just interviewed with a large public defender's office in a large city, and the starting pay there was $55,000. If I had been more experienced, I would presumably have been offered more... maybe an extra $5K for every couple of years of experience.
You could go out on your own, in which case your income could be zip, and it could be half a million, depending on about a bazillion things - how well you market yourself, how much people are willing to pay you, whether anyone would trust you, being right out of law school, to handle their case... endless variables. You may actually end up in the hole after you figure in costs to open and run your practice, etc. Not to mention your malpractice insurance. I worked for a criminal defense attorney who had been in private practice for probably 20 years. My totally rough guess is that he made about $200K a year.
What Are Our Odds In This Court Case? Lawyers???
My Hubby Was Served With A Small Claims Case On An Item That Was Charged Off. Here Are Some Key Facts:
The Amount Was Originally $689 And That Is How It Is Reported On His Credit Reports.
We Just Found Out About This Item A Few Months Back And Wrote To The Creditor Requesting Documentation And Validation Of The Debt. They Failed To Do So And Just Went Ahead And Filed A Small Claims Case Against Him.
We Have The Document That We Sent Requesting The Information That They Obviously Used To Have Him Served The Papers (We Had Not Heard From Them Regarding This Item Prior And It Was For Something That Was Apparently Bought Over 3 Years Ago).
The Amount They Are Trying To Sue Him For Is Over 3 Times The Amount Of The Original Item They Say They Charged Off.
I Am Just Curious What Our Odds Are Of At The Very Least Getting Them To Settle With Us Through The Small Claims Court If They Are Able To Produce The Proof We Asked For?
If they produce the proof you asked for or not - either way, they are going to have to provide documentation for the court pertaining to the original amount that was delinquent, and all other charges/fees assessed that made the charge off over 3 times what the original amount was. If they have no proof documenting the validity of their case/claim - then it's your word against theirs entirely. (Also remember, when a company charges off a debt owed to them, they by law can tack on all assessed standard business applicable fees pertaining to the account in which they are charging off. This can be late fees, OD/NSF fees, early close/termination fees, and in some cases filing/notice fees)
Having that said, having just a copy of the request you sent them does not prove that they received the letter. I know you feel they used the address info. from that correspondence to then subpoena you, however there are many ways creditors can figure out where you live. Any other correspondence you have with them via mail need to be sent via certified mail. This way you have a signature with date and time to show they got the letter and chose to ignore it.
As far as the FCRA (Fair Credit Reporting Act) - they didn't violate it by not providing you with any information upon your request. It's the consumer credit reporting agencies that are held liable if they do not provide response. They can only tell you what they were old though. If you chose to dispute the reporting, they then go back to the person who reported it originally through a 3rd party mediation service and mitigate additional information that may not have been available when the reporting was originally done.
To answer the first part of your question - small claims court is there to settle small disputes between seperate entities. But if they win.....you owe all of what they're awarded - and there isnt really a "pay as you go" plan for small claims court. You usually have to pay it all within a certain period of time, or there is a warrant issued for your arrest. If you meant in your question "settle" meaning settle for a lesser amount, settle out of court, settle through a payment plan: your best bet is to call them, speak with someone in their collections/escalations department and be an active participant in discussing fully resolving the issue prior to the court date. In this instance, if you make some alternate resolution with the creditor directly, small claims has no need to resolve the issue, because it's already done. The creditor drops the case, court is canceled, and you can begin repayment. Make sure though - when you do get the charge off paid in full - the creditor reports the repayment in full so it doesn't hang on your credit report as unpaid.
Hope this helps!!

Do Anyone Know The Name Of An Great Affordable Family Law Lawyer For Child Custody In Albany Georgia?
I Have Been Researching Laws On Joint Custody But Im Having A Hard Time Finding An Lawyer In Albany Georgia. Is There Any Advice Anyone Can Give?
My advice... unless your ex is an imbecile or a direct danger to your child, I'd approach them saying, "I've been searching out Georgia's child custody laws. Do you know that we can either spend thousands of dollars on attorneys to have a judge decide to give neither of us everything we want OR we can spend a few hundred dollars to write up our own parenting plan and pay an attorney to look it over (as in the best interest of our child(ren) & then help us to submit our agreement for a judge's approval?"
A child custody FIGHT goes on until everybody runs out of money. If one parent gets what they want, it will only last until the other parent pays an attorney more money to change it until the next parent pays money... and the cycle is repeated until everyone is too poor to take best care of the children.
EVERY attorney payment you both make is one less vacation outing, health care visit, educational supplies, better child care sitter, etc. that you could have spent on your child.
A child custody AGREEMENT means that both of you walk away happier than letting strangers decide your fate.
You need to make a list of the parenting plan that a judge is going to require of you (or make for you) & then work out item-by-item compromises you can both agree on. Here's the list: http://www.childcustodycoach.com/georgia... & note that you can also get phone help @ $175/hr. to assist you. (That's cheaper than a lawyer consult.)
You need to know that part of a judge's consideration for custody is "The willingness and ability of each of the parents to facilitate and encourage a close and continuing parent-child relationship between the child and the OTHER parent." So approaching the judge with an agreement you both worked out will reflect very well on you two as putting the BEST INTEREST of your child ahead of your own selfish interests & disagreements. The judge is more likely to accept the custody agreement you both have drafted. http://www.helpyourselfdivorce.com/georg...
Once you've completed the draft agreement, both of you should seek one Family Law attorney. Make a consult appointment. Hire the attorney to represent your child's best interest. (He or she will not be representing either parent. Make that clear when calling for the appt.) Show up with your agreement & ask the attorney to help you make that into a court document to be filed for a judge's approval. You both could walk out of this for less than $1000 combined AND your child(ren) will be better off AND both you & your ex can walk away from this more emotionally whole as opposed to emotionally shredded. If you both LOVE your child, you would never think of doing that do a parent that will be having that child in their custody in that vile frame of mind that they were left in all b/c one parent just had to win. Win what? There's no prize when a child is dealing with one or both emotionally maimed parent(s).
