PA Grandparents' Rights
Pennsylvania recognizes the rights of PA grandparents to seek visitation, partial physical custody, or primary physical custody of their minor grandchild or grandchildren. The grandparents must prove that the requested custody would be in the best interests of the minor grandchild or grandkids and would not interfere with the relationship between the parent and the minor child.
Pennsylvania Grandparent's Partial Custody and Visitation
After the United States Supreme Court case of Troxel v. Granville was decided, some parents and their attorneys have argued that it is unconstitutional for a state court to award even partial custody or visitation to grandparents if the parent disagrees with the grandparents' request for partial custody or visitation. Florida and some other states that have directly confronted the issue have determined that it is unconstitutional to force a fit parent to be compelled to allow contact with their minor children's grandparents. The Pennsylvania Supreme Court in the case of Hiller v. Fausey has recently ruled that the Pennsylvania Grandparent Visitation Statutes are constitutional and are a means to protect the emotional well-being of children who have been estranged from their grandparents.
Pennsylvania Grandparent Primary Custody Law
A case involving grandparents' primary custody rights evolved through the Armstrong County Court of Common Pleas. In the case of K.B., II, K.B. and B.B. v. C.B.F., the Armstrong County trial court awarded primary physical custody of a minor child to his paternal grandparents even though the court found the child's mother to be an adequate parent. Attorney Lisa Vari was retained to represent the mother in her appeal to the Pennsylvania Superior Court. In the case argued before the Pennsylvania Superior Court, Attorney Lisa Marie Vari argued that only if a parent is declared to be unfit should grandparents have the right to seek primary physical custody of their minor grandchildren. While Attorney Vari was successful in having the mother's primary custody rights restored, the Superior Court of Pennsylvania held that grandparents have the right to sue parents for primary physical custody of their grandchildren even if the parents are deemed to be fit parents. On January 2, 2004, the Pennsylvania Supreme Court agreed to review the Superior Court's ruling on the K.B., II, K.B. and B.B. v. C.B.F. case. The Pennsylvania Supreme Court heard arguments from both Attorney Lisa Vari and counsel for the grandparents in September of 2004. In November 2005, the Pennsylvania Supreme Court dismissed the appeal filed by Attorney Vari as "improvidently granted". It was later learned that the appeal had been improperly granted because Attorney Vari's client, the mother, had won the return of her child from the grandparents at the Superior Court level. It is a true shame that the Court did not have the opportunity to review its prior opinion in the Baxter case and make some necessary changes.

Hiller v. Fausey - PA Supreme Court held that the PA Grandparent Visitation Statutes which allow grandparents to seek partial custody or visitation with their minor grandchildren are constitutional and rejected the argument that such statutes are a violation of the Due Process rights under the 14th Amendment to the US Constitution.

How Will Firing My Injury Attorney Affect My Case?
The Story Is Far Too Long And Too Frustrating To Spell Out, But I'D Like To Change My Auto Injury Attorney. We'Ve Already Gone Through Deposition But Because Of His Misstep, We Have To Wait Another Six Months Before We Can Get On The Court Calendar. All Of The Evidence For My Case(Surgeon'S Narratives, Police Report, Guilty Party'S Stipulation Of Negligence, Etc) Has Already Been Submitted To The State Court In Atlanta. Clearly, We Are Ready To Go To Trial But Cannot At This Point. We Are So Tired Of The Lies This Guy Has Been Feeding Us. His Failure To Serve One Of The Defendants Until June When The Case Was Two Years Old(Which Offers Them Another Six Months For Discovery) Is Just The Last Straw For Us. We'Re Speaking To A Couple Of New Attorneys Today But I'D Like To Know Ahead Of Time What To Expect. Can The New Attorney Pick Up Where The Other Left Off At Or Will We Need To Begin Again? Will This Move Set Us Back Even Further? Our Attorney Has A Past Working Relationship With The Defendant'S Attorney...They Seemed To Be Big Buddies At The Deposition Which Bothered Me. Seems Like A Conflict Of Interest. What Are The Chances He Will Divulge Personal Information With Her Upon Termination?
regardless of what happens your first attorney is going to get paid.... this will either come out of what is left of your settlement or a portion of the percentage that goes to the next attorney you hire.. either way you pay, and this fact makes changing attorneys difficult because the next attorney knows they are going to make a lot less then normal.....
the attorney can NOT divulge any information about your case and will not discuss you in any way... the attorneys license and their ability to keep it is more important then their friendships......
and realize that most attorneys know each other, they regularly work together or face each other in court.... being friends or big buddies has no bearing on the case or their ability to do their jobs......
your concerns in that area are unfounded.....
your attorney may be inept, may be inexperienced, may be an ambulance chaser, BUT that would have no bearing on their friendships or who they know.....
with the proper filing of documents the new attorney can take over where the case stands now but they may decide to NOT do that, a lot depends on where you are and if they think they can improve your position.....
i can not help but ask WHY you even went down this road, if you have all the proof you claim, and the defendant has admitted negligence in the accident why didn't you just allow the insurance companies to settle.... you would have come out ahead, have your money already and would probably actually see more in your bank account then you will now..... just wondering.....
How Can I Find A Good Divorce Lawyer?
I'Ve Never Needed To Hire A Lawyer Before, So I Don'T Know How To Pick The Right One. I See Many Listed In The Phone Book, And I Can Find More Online, But How Do I Know Who Is Good And Who Is Not? What Kind Of Criteria Should I Be Looking For?
I have found that I am only a "good" lawyer when I get my clients everything that they want. Which is never. What you think you want from a divorce and what the law says you can have are usually miles apart.. Generally speaking, and thats all we can do without having all of the facts from both sides, the court will give you what you are entitled to have, no more, no less. Before you engage a lawyer, sit down with him or her and ask what they will charge you for your particular circumstance. If you cannot afford it, tell them so and ask if they know of someone who will work to your budget. There, I must be a "good" lawyer because I have given you that sound advise for nothing. Good luck.

Can Anyone Tell Me What Is A Legal Will?
A legal will is a legal document made by any adult of sound mind in order to control the disposition of your properties in the event of death. It follows the following technical requirements in order to be considered a valid and/or legal will:
- The will must be signed by at least two witnesses. The witnesses must watch you sign the will, though they don't need to read it. Your witnesses, in most states, must be people who won't inherit anything under the will. (If your state allows "holographic" wills, you don't need witnesses.)
- Testator (creator of the will) must date and sign the will.
It is not necessary to have your will notarized. In many states, though, if you and your witnesses sign an affidavit (sworn statement) before a notary public, you can help simplify the court procedures required to prove the validity of the will after you die.
