I Would Like Info On Power Of Attorney And Common Law Marriage In Texas?
I Would Like Info On Power Of Attorney And Common Law Marriage In Texas, My Boy Friend And I Have Lived Together In Same House For Over Ten Years And He Is Now In Icu At The Hospital I Am Claimed On Irs As A Dependent Under The Box Other, Since There Is Not A Box For Common Law Wife Or Live In Girlfriend Any Info Will Help
you referred to him as "boyfriend" one part of the law in Texas includes "representation to others that the parties are married." you obviously don't meet that criteria.
in TX for this to be recognized:
Under § 2.401 of the Texas Family Code, an informal marriage can be established either by declaration (registering at the county courthouse without having a ceremony), or by meeting a three-prong test showing evidence of (1) an agreement to be married; (2) cohabitation in Texas; and (3) representation to others that the parties are married. A 1995 update adds an evidentiary presumption that there was no marriage if no suit for proof of marriage is filed within two years of the date the parties separated and ceased living together.
since you most likely don't have the ability to prove you are married you will have to have at least a limited POA for medical issues. If you do NOT have that already and he is not mentally and/or physically able to provide that you will need the courts assistance...
being considered a dependent for the IRS is irrelevant......

Major For Law School? Advice?
Hello, I Have Been Told That You Can Practically Major In Anything Undergrad If You Are Wanting To Go To Law School. I Was Looking For Recommendations, Right Now I'M Political Science/ Prelaw, Is This A Good Idea???
No one major is the key to law school. Admissions looks at the amount of writing, thinking and communicating that you have had to do in your undergraduate education. To build skills for law school, take English, Philosophy and possibly even History classes. These classes will force you to think, research and write.
You should probably rethink the Political Science path, if law school does not work out, the degree by itself is useless. It would be better for you to focus on something with more utility, like Economics or Business.
My classmates have music degrees, finance backgrounds and science backgrounds. I personally have a political science background, which I regret.
A Question For Lawyers...?
Im Really Thinking About Becoming A Lawyer, So What Should I Know About Law School And Stuff?...Do Enjoy What You Do And Did U Ever Have To Sacrifice Anything To Become One?
First: Why a laywer? Is it to fullfill a true ambition or fulfill a "status" block (i.e., my child is a doctor/lawyer/dentist?). Do it ONLY for the former and rarely for the latter...status is good, but won't carry a career wrought with (1) alcoholism, (2) public scorn/scrutiny and (3) marital strife and (4) inevitable moral/ethical dilemmas and compromises.
Second: What type of law do you want to pratice? I love advocacy and found my niche in the courtroom. I have peers who have no business being in a courtroom as much as I have no business writing a will, securing real estate transactions or providing legal advice to a corporation. Match your desire to your skill set and passions.
Third: Embrace the culture of law. It's not what it appears on TV and in news headlines. The gloss you get on the 5 oclock news or on prime-time TV (even the "news" programs) is not even close to what goes on in the culture of law. Find a firm that you can intern with or do some paralegal/clerical work for. It will enlighten you both positively and negatively.
Fourth: if you do not like to read/write, law school and the following career may prove quite unfulfilling. Even as a litigator...90% of my career is reading/writing. A trial involves 90% reading/writing before you ever step into a courtroom. Your reading/writing skills have to be sharp. If you don't enjoy either...it's hard to "fake" the skills. I see plenty of mediocre attorneys (and former mediocre law students) and it is clear that they fake these skills. They end up hurting their clients and the profession in the long run. It erodes them professionally, emotionally and spiritually as well (hence alcoholism/divorce, etc).
Fifth: You asked of sacrifice. Yes there is sacrifice. To earn the "status" of being a laywer, you have to commit three long years to school - and it is a full-time commitment of your evenings and weekends. Has the sacrifice been worth it? Yes. I love being a litigator. I do criminal defense now and love the challenges it presents. I love defending my clients and giving them the constiutional protections they deserve. I love how the law has helped me in a lot of areas of my life. I better understand contracts i have to sign, how to buy a house/car, how to negotiate nearly everything. I better understand the news I read/watch, I better understand politics. Don't think all lawyers are miserable from what you are reading. I've been happily married to a loving non-lawyer for 8 years. My closest friends are lawyers and are happily married. None of us drink or have drinking problems. That's the majority of us. My lawyer friends with failed marriages and drinking problems would have those problems no matter what they did for a living. The law didn't creat those problems, but could have made existing problems worse because of the demands on lawyers by their bosses (and society).
Sixth: There are some great books about law school (everyone I think reads One-L by Turow, although its a bit unrealistic). A lot of college libraries have such books. Visit a law school and sit through the classes and talk to law students. I used to give tours at my law school and could tell who really wanted to be there and who was just trying to make mom/dad happy.
Last: Work between college and law school. Develop some "real world" experience. It will help you understand the law. You'll come in with better insight and more maturity. It will also help prevent burnout. I flew for the Air Force and also taught high school for between college and law school and was better for it. I barely graduated high school (2.02 GPA, no lie) and then graduated in the top 25% of my law school, who gave me a full-ride scholarship. It was the experience that helped me, and i was more mature and disciplined as well. Good luck to you

The law is the law, no matter where. That means, all of your constitutional rights and liberties are guaranteed in ANY court of law. There may be court procedural rules which define HOW you must apply those laws within the framework of that court. Your best advice should come from an attorney who knows the court rules and procedures.
You can refuse to admit anything you want. You are NOT required, under law, to self-incriminate yourself or to admit to anything. If other courts have found he manufactures things, just present the facts to the court and let the facts stand for themselves. How you go about doing this is dependent on court rules and procedures. It is unwise for you to not to have legal counseling or representation in these matters.
In this case, pleading the 5th has always been viewed as an escape mechanism for the guilty..mobsters in front of a Congressional inquiry often love to use it to prevent themselves from having to admit they have committed crimes. I am fairly certain, this is how it would be viewed in any court, even if it is your right. It is better to respond in the appropriate manner while avoiding admitting to anything. In other words, it might be smart money to be a good politician: give a reply and say nothing, that is what politicians do. Depending on the judge, you may be liable for not answering the questions directly and the judge may be compelled to find you guilty of contempt of court for not giving a direct answer to questions. This is why you need to have proper legal representation, who knows when you should speak and when you should shut up.
