Do Mandatory Minimum Sentence Laws Work?
Do Mandatory Minimum Sentence Laws Work?
The first answerer gives you the 'standard' answer--the ONLY solution to crime is punishment, and if that doesn't work, MORE punishment.
Mandatory minimum sentences are part of a much bigger program that's been going on for decades now, to take power away from defendants and judges and give it to police and prosecutors. The effect of this whole program has been to erode the BIll of Rights, until GW Bush could simply ignore basic principles like habeas corpus and due process. We have prisoners today who have been in prison for years & years and have never actually been charged with a crime!
Prison overcrowding has been a serious problem in many states. We've doubled sentences for most crimes, and then when that didn't work we doubled them again. The Fed. Govt. banned overcrowding prisons, so now when a minor criminal, like a 'casual' drug user, gets a mandatory minimum sentence, and there isn't room for him in an existing state prison, a more serious criminal is released.
According To Adoption Laws In Illinois?
If Child-Support Is Failed To Be Paid, Can The Child Be Adopted By A New Parent, Have The Birth Certificate Changed To State The Name Of The Adoptive Parent, And The Child'S Last Name Be Changed To The Adoptive Parent'S Name, Without The Birth Father Signing Over His Rights? Say The Birth Father Is Not Paying Child Support (Because He Is Incarcerated). Once He Acquires A Job, If He Still Fails To Pay Support, Could His Child Be Adopted By Another Man, Without Him Singing Away His Rights As A Father?
In order for the adoption to happen, the biological fathers parental rights must be terminated. It is POSSIBLE for the court to terminate rights without his consent, but not easy. It may not be technically legal, but there is a practical method of convincing a 'deadbeat dad' to allow an adoption. If he does not cooperate, the mother has option except to AGGRESSIVELY pursue enforcement of the child support order. If he allows the adoption, she has no incentive to do so. This could be considered blackmail, and thus illegal, but the court may chose not to notice in the best interest of the child.

Can You Receive A Workers Comp Settlement Without A Lawyer?
My Husband Has Been Receiving Workers Comp For The Past Year Without The Services Of A Lawyer, The Doctors Now Want Him To Have Back Surgery, He Is Still Unsure, We Just Dont Know What Is The Next Step. Do We Have To Get A Lawyer?
Hiring an Attorney is a tricky issue in workers comp cases. In the EARLY part of your husband's case, it appears OK that he did not need an attorney, because workers comp was paying his benefits. Because he NOW needs surgery, it can get very tricky & ugly in an instant.
Here is WHY.
The insurance company KNOWS that they must put up more money for the surgery, AND they will likely be required to pay for your husbands PPD (Permanency benefits). THAT may mean lifetime benefits - depending on which state has jurisdiction over his claim.
Whenever you have a serious injury, your claim has been denied, you need surgery, etc., it would be wise to at least consult with an attorney who specializes in worker comp cases.
Your husband is lucky that workers comp has paid his benefits - up until now. EVEN if they approve hsi surgery, you must MAKE SURE that he STILL gets all the benefits he is entitled to receive. Because he needs surgery, the workers comp carrier knows that the cost of their claim will skyrocket, because of the medical bills, and permanency benefits, with the lost time.
Because of this, many of them may try to find ways to either delay the surgery or deny the surgery.
Here are situations to considering consulting with an attorney who specializes in workers comp:
1 - Your claim has been denied - and the workers comp carrier refuses to tell you why.
2 - You have been out of work for a week, and no one is telling you whether you will be paid.
3 - You need surgery now, and your claim has not been accepted.
4 - Your injury is a serious one - falling from a scaffold, falling thru the stairs, being run over by a car while working, inhaling poisonous fumes, etc.
5 - You are being followed by a surveillance person, and you do not know why.
6 - You are not sure about how to file a workers comp claim, and / or do not know the legal deadlines before which you must file.
7 - The workers comp injury involves the death of your family member.
8 - The injury involves electrucution.
9 - Your claim was initially accepted, but NOW you need surgery, and they are denying your claim.

Hows The Best Way To Find A Divorce Attorney?? Or Do You Know Any Very Powerfull Ones Around Lacrosse Wisconsin And If You Do Whats Their Name??
Be aware that a divorce attorney is very expensive especially if one drag out the proceedings by requesting a lot of continuances. I ended up paying $40,000 for my divorce which lasted over a course of 4 years because my attorney kept requesting continuances once we appeared in court.
If you select an attorney, ask him/her for a list of clients and call them to find out how the attorney services were to them.
