Really Need Some Legal Advice...?
First Of All I Have 2 Kids 11 Yrs And 8 Yrs. I Have Been Divorced For 4 Years. I Fought A Custody Battle For A Year And A Half With My Ex Husband Who Only Wanted Out Of Paying Child Support So He Wanted Joint Custody Him Being Primary Custodian. The Court Gave Him Temporary Primary Custody With Me Paying Child Support To Him But I Took Care Of The Kids Just Like I Was Primary Custodian And He Saw Them Every Other Weekend And I Paid Child Support! But To Stop The Court Battles And Not To Mention All The Money Going Into Attorney'S Fees And To Him In Child Support, I Decided To Go To Mediation And We &Quot;Agreed&Quot; That He Would Keep The Kids 1 Week And I Would Have Them 1 Week And No Child Support Each Paying The Same For The Kids!
Now He Moved Almost An Hour Away, He Doesn'T Keep Them Like He'S Suppose To And I Am Paying For Everything. I Live In Ky. What Can I Do To Get This Into Court And Get Someone To Listen To My Side Of The Story And Believe Any Thing I Say. I Told The Judge The Last Time He Only Wanted Out Of Child Support And He Wouldn'T Listen So Please Any Advice Would Help!
Find some local attorney's. At minimum, they will give you a free consultation and tell you what they might be able to do to help. It might be worth spending a little money to hire an attorney at that point (after all, this is your kids) but if not at least you'll have some expert advice. Otherwise, I believe they have toll free numbers you can call for advice on matter like these. You could file another case and have it in front of judge, but you really want to be prepared prior to doing that. Unfortunately, I know a lot of people that just have to go through this and haven't been able to get it fixed - they just look at the bright side that at least they have their kids and aren't paying money anymore -- but there are ways that if you get the judge to agree, you can have his paychecks docked and that money sent to you...

What Kinds Of Law...?
What Kinds Of Law Are There? Also, If A Lawyer Defends Elderly Citizens (Especially In Cases Like Elder Abuse), What Kind Of Law Is That?
Other fields of law (as noted in the Department of Labor Occupational Outlook Handbook http://www.bls.gov/oco/ocos053.htm include:
Lawyers may specialize in a number of areas, such as bankruptcy, probate, international, elder, or environmental law. Those specializing in environmental law, for example, may represent interest groups, waste disposal companies, or construction firms in their dealings with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and other Federal and State agencies. These lawyers help clients prepare and file for licenses and applications for approval before certain activities may occur. Some lawyers specialize in the growing field of intellectual property, helping to protect clients’ claims to copyrights, artwork under contract, product designs, and computer programs. Other lawyers advise insurance companies about the legality of insurance transactions, guiding the company in writing insurance policies to conform to the law and to protect the companies from unwarranted claims. When claims are filed against insurance companies, these attorneys review the claims and represent the companies in court.
Most lawyers are in private practice, concentrating on criminal or civil law. In criminal law, lawyers represent individuals who have been charged with crimes and argue their cases in courts of law. Attorneys dealing with civil law assist clients with litigation, wills, trusts, contracts, mortgages, titles, and leases. Other lawyers handle only public-interest cases—civil or criminal—concentrating on particular causes and choosing cases that might have an impact on the way law is applied. Lawyers are sometimes employed full time by a single client. If the client is a corporation, the lawyer is known as “house counsel” and usually advises the company concerning legal issues related to its business activities. These issues might involve patents, government regulations, contracts with other companies, property interests, or collective bargaining agreements with unions.
A significant number of attorneys are employed at the various levels of government. Some work for State attorneys general, prosecutors, and public defenders in criminal courts. At the Federal level, attorneys investigate cases for the U.S. Department of Justice and other agencies. Government lawyers also help develop programs, draft and interpret laws and legislation, establish enforcement procedures, and argue civil and criminal cases on behalf of the government.
Other lawyers work for legal aid societies—private, nonprofit organizations established to serve disadvantaged people. These lawyers generally handle civil, rather than criminal, cases.
Is Law School Just For Becoming A Lawyer? Other Options?
This May Be A Really Dumb Question, But...
I Just Started College And I Am Considering Maybe Law School After, If I Do Well On The Lsat. I Am Interested In Law, Human Rights, Criminal Justice, Ect. But, I Was Just Wondering If There'S Any Other Careers Besides A Lawyer Or A Judge, In The Criminal Justice Field That Might Benefit Me From Going Into Law School?
That's not a stupid question.
Law school is a type of professional school, sort of like business school or medical school, that's designed to set you on a certain career path. If you attend medical school, you're working toward being a doctor. If you attend business school, you probably want to end up working in some business capacity - as an executive or even an entrepreneur. If you attend law school, you're working toward being a lawyer.
That being said, people use their JDs for many other types of jobs. The question, though, isn't whether you can do something else with your JD, but whether your JD would actually help you do something else besides being a lawyer/judge. The answer is not really. In some situations, a JD will price you out of the market. Employers will wonder why you're not a lawyer and will worry that you're a flight risk. They'll think you're overqualified, as well. In other cases, I've heard of executives having JDs or JD/MBAs, but I get the impression that they're not all that beneficial. You could, of course, teach with a JD, but it's not as competitive as other types of advanced degrees unless you want to teach law.
In general, I would advise people not to go to law school if they know from the outset that they have no interest in being a lawyer. The reason is that law school is a very expensive way to get an education. It's not as flexible as a master's or a PhD and there's not as much applicability to other careers as there would be with an MA/PhD. There's no rule that you can't transition to other careers with a JD, but most other types of careers aren't looking for JDs, either.
If you want to keep your options open, try to get into a PhD program. If you want to work in human rights law or some kind of public interest law, then consider law school.
