4 Ways To Help Your Lawyer Help You If you want a legal representative for any reason, you must work closely with them to be able to win your case. Irrespective of how competent they are, they're going to need your help. Here are four important ways to help your legal team allow you to win: 1. Be Totally Honest Or Higher Your lawyers need and expect your complete cooperation - irrespective of what information you're gonna reveal for them. Privilege means whatever you say is held in confidence, so don't hold anything back. Your legal team has to know all things in advance - most importantly information another side could find out about and surprise you with later. 2. Provide Meticulous Records Keep an ongoing and factual account of all the information regarding your case. Whether it's witnesses or payments being made, provide your attorneys with all the current data they need to help them to win. 3. Arrive Early For Those Engagements Not be late when you're appearing before a court and avoid wasting the attorney's time, too, by being promptly, each time. In fact, because you may need to discuss last second details or perhaps be extra ready for the truth you're facing, it's smart to arrive early. 4. Demonstrate That You Have Your Act Together If you've been involved in any kind of crime, it's important in order to convince the court that you simply both regret the actions and so are making strides toward enhancing your life. For example, if you're facing a DUI, volunteer to get a rehab program. Be sincere and linked to the neighborhood the judge is presiding over. Working more closely together with your legal team increases your probability of absolute success. Follow these tips, listen closely to how you're advised and ultimately, you must win your case.

Need Serious (Quick) Help, Legal Question, Self Representation, Divorce And Child Custody?
This Is A Long Question, But Please Take The Time To Read It.
I'Ll Start From The Beginning, I Have Been Married For A Few Years, The Relationship Started Getting Very Rocky As Soon As He Moved Me Away From My Family And Surrounded Me With His, This Is When I Think He Felt Like He Had Me Trapped, I Was Married To Him, Pregnant With His Child And Away From Anyone I Knew. He Began To Be Very Controlling. We Have A Little Girl Now, Who Is The Light Of My Life, And Whom I Love More Than Words Can Possibly Express. Recently Some Of My Family Came To Live With Us, And Even Though He Didn'T Like It, He'S Scared Of Everyone Except Me And Never Had The Balls To Tell Them To Leave. I Have Been A Stay-At-Home Mom Since My Daughter Was Born, That Was A Decision We Both Made. I, However, Wanted To Go To School, My Husband Didn'T Like This Idea. When My Family Was Here Though, I Was Less Scared And Enrolled Myself In Ged Classes And Made Plans To Attend College. I'D Asked My Husband For A Divorce Before, And He'D Made It Very Clear That He Didn'T Want One And He Would Contest It. I Didn'T Have Enough Money For A Lawyer For A Contested Divorce, So My Plan Was To Stick It Out Until I Graduated In A Couple Years And Then Leave Him. I Never Had Access To The Bank Account Or Any Of The Money Other Than The Cash He Would Reluctantly Give Me For Groceries. He Became Very Uncomfortable When It Became Clear That I Was Serious About Getting My Education And Also Because I Now Had Someone Around To Stand Up For Me Other Than Myself. We Got In A Huge Fight And Again I Asked For A Divorce, He Again Said No, But Started To Drain Our Bank Account Of The Few Thousand Dollars We Had In There, Behind My Back And Unbeknownst To Me. He Hired A Lawyer, Had Some Papers Drawn Up, Including Divorce Papers, But Also A Restraining Order Against Me, Preventing Me From Having Custody Of My Daughter (On The Grounds That I Would Somehow Drive 400 Miles To The Rest Of My Family, With The Car That He Knew Had No Gas, But Then Not Have Enough Money To Provide Her With Basic Necessities Once I Arrived), All Of This Behind My Back. I Was Served These Papers On The 30Th Of Last Month, They Took My Daughter Away, And I Have Been Frantically Trying To Find Legal Help Ever Since. On The Restraining Order, It Said That I Have A Hearing On Monday The 13Th And That This Is Going To Be Held In A Town I'Ve Never Heard Of, About An Hour An A Half Away, Apparently There Is Only One Chancellery Judge In The Area And He Serves 7 Counties, I Guess This Was His Soonest Available Date. I Have Talked To Every Lawyer In Town (Which Is Only 3) But All Need At Least A Grand To Do Anything For Me. One Promised To Let Me Make Payments, But After Waiting A Week For An Appointment And Selling Things To Get The $150 Consultation Fee, Told Me That He Would Need Almost 2 Grand Up Front. I Tried Everything I Could Think Of To Get The Money, Called Everyone I Knew, But No Luck. There Is One Legal Aid Service In This Area, I'Ve Been Calling And Leaving Messages For Them Almost Everyday Since She Was Taken Away But So Far They Have No Returned One Call. I Went To Their Office And Was Just Given An Extension Number To Try On The Number I'D Already Been Calling, Left A New Message For This Person, Still No Return Calls, I Guess They Are Very Busy. I'Ve Tried To Obtain A Court Advocate, But The People In My County Won'T Drive That Far, And I Can'T Get A Hold Of Anyone In The County The Hearing Is Being Held In Until Monday, Which Is Obviously Too Late. So, It Looks Like I'M Going To Be Walking In There Alone, Representing Myself. I Have Two Family Witnesses That Have Seen Him Be Violent Towards Me, They'Ve Also Seen Him Be Extremely Neglectful Of My Child. I Have Pictures Of My Daughter'S Living Conditions Now (She Is Staying With My Husband And His Mother), Which Are Deplorable And Dangerous. I'Ve Called Dcs, But I'Ve Been Told They Will Not Investigate Since There We Are Involved In This Court Thing And There Is Really Nothing I Can Do About It. I May Be Still Able To Obtain A Picture Of A Bruise That He Left On Me, He Deleted It From My Phone, But I'Ve Been Told With The Right Software It May Be Recoverable (I'M Waiting On A Cell Phone Data Cable I Ordered To Arrive, Hopefully Sometime Today). My Case Is Very Good, The Problem Is, He Has A Lawyer And I Don'T. I Don'T Know What Kind Of Lies They Are Going To Make Up, And I Have No One To Question Him And Trip Him Up In His Lies. I Don'T Know The Legal Procedures For Submitting Evidence, Or Asking Questions, Or Anything Really. I Have No Court Experience. Even If You Don'T Have Much Law Knowledge, If You'Ve Been Through Anything Like This And Can Tell Me What It'S Like And What To Expect, I Would Really Appreciate It. If You Do Have Some Law Knowledge, That'S Even Better Because I Desperately Need It.
You are in a tough situation. It looks as though you may need to represent yourself.
Here's what you do.
1- Sit down and document the marriage from beginning until now. Write everything down, try to remember dates, names, places. Find as much evidence as possible, pictures, emails, texts, receipts.
2- Bring all the evidence you can to prove you are a good mother. EVERYTHING. All the things you own of your child's. All the information you know. Bring signed statements from your child's doctor, dentist, daycare provider, all attesting to your character.
3- Demand that an investigation be done into the living conditions of your daughter, and ask that a judge also investigate you. To show and prove you are a responsible person and there is no evidence to show otherwise.
Here's the deal, likely if you have no convictions of any kind, you will get your daughter back.
After that's dealt with. FIND A LAWYER. Go to legal aid. You can't do this without one.
Probate Attorney- What's The Cost / And Purpose? ?
How Much Does It Usually Cost To Use A Probate Attourney. My Mom Passed Away And Left Money To Myself And Sister. Is It Necessary To Use An Attourney Or Is An Accountant Ok? How Long Should A Inheritence Take To Settle Through Probate Court And How Can An Attourney Speed Things Up? Finally, If My Sister Is Executer Of The Estate , Would It Be Wise And Should I Alone Use An Attourney?
The length of time: almost always takes one year. Second, the cost of the probate lawyer varies with the size and complexity of the estate. Usually, "complexity" is defined by claims against the estate and the amount of assets to be included in the estate for tax purposes. The mortgage debt on your mom's home needs to be paid off before any distribution. I realize that your late mom have sold her home due to age or she may have a medical debt. There are multiple issues. Most important, I hope you and your sister work together to divide the physical property. That there is high level of compromise between you. If the estate is a 7 figure or a modest estate then the ability to settle between the two of you will vary if compromise is not exercised. The executor should have approx. 5 certified copies of the death certificate. The government grows more complex with each decade. "Be prepared" would be my motto. Sorry for your loss and I hope all goes well over the next year.
What Is The Average Cost Of Hiring A Real Estate Lawyer?
I'M Involved In A Dispute Over The Interpretation Of An Easement Agreement Pertaining To The One Driveway And Parking Area On The Property Where My Half Of A Duplex Sits. I Own The Majority Of The Driveway Property, However, The Owner Of The Other Side Of The Duplex Has The Right To Park (2) Cars And I'M Not To Block Him In. He Interprets The Agreement To Read That Although I Still Own 2/3 Of The Driveway, Previous Owners Of My Half Relinquished Exclusive Use Of The Driveway To His Half, And I Cannot Use The Driveway At All. I'Ve Contacted A Lawyer, And Will Be Meeting To Consult With Him For Free In A Few Days. I'M Just Concerned About How Much This Entire Disagreement Could End Up Costing Me In Legal Fees.
Consult the specific covenants, restrictions, and conditions of the easement. An easement is defined as a right created by grant, reservation, agreement, prescription, or necessary implication, which one has in the land of another. It is for the benefit of land (appurtenant), such as right to cross A to get to B, or "in gross", such as a public utility easement.
Dominant tenement is a parcel of land which benefits from an easement. For example an easement exists over parcel A for access to parcel B. Parcel B is the dominant tenement; parcel A is the servient tenement.
Servient tenement is an estate burdened with a servitude. Most commonly a parcel of land burdened by an easement.
Take the easement and go talk to a real estate attorney that is giving you the free consultation. If you can't block him in, he can't just park on your 2/3 and block you access to your land. You and he have to share and both of you need to understand that. The easement agreement passed to you from the previous owner. It does not matter what the previous owners did - they don't own the land now you do and you bought that chunk too. It can get pretty expensive, but see if he'll do it for a flat rate of about $500. Otherwise, try a quiet title action, as long as the other owner is not landlocked.
I don't know whoever thought up the idea of splitting the ownership of a duplex and not building separate drives/yards for same, but they need to be kicked, LOL!

Confused About Joint Custody?
So I Asked A Similar Question Last Night, Someone That Answered The Question Really Got Me To Thinking. I Wanted To Get Sole Custody Of My Daughter, But Her Dad Is A Great Dad To Her, So I Figure Joint Custody Is The Way To Go. My Issue Is That Since My Daughter Was Born Ten Months Ago She Has Lived With Me, She Has Never Spent Mroe Than A Night Or Two A Week With Her Dad, And That Has Only Happened Within The Last Couple Months. Because She Is Still Just A Baby Its Tough To Let Her Stay Overnight With Him Much, I Dont Mind It, I Trust Him, Its Just Hard On Her. I Wouldnt Mind Joint Custody At All, I Just Wanna Make Sure The Arrangements We Have Now Stay The Same. I Guess I Just Wanna Know From Anyone That Has Joint Custody With The Father/Mother Of Their Child, What All Does It Entail?? My Lawyer Should Be Able To Help Me Iwth This, But It Takes Him Days To Return My Phone Calls!!
Well i'm in the UK so things maybe different here. I have joint custody with my ex husband. But i have residency, so our child lives with me. The reasons joint custody is much better (in my situation) is because my son has medical issues that if were to arise when he was in his fathers care, his dad needs to be able to give consent for treatment. If ever anything should happen to me, the court know where to place my son. My ex husband has just taken him on holiday abroad.
There are many good reasons for joint custody, but you really need to be able to trust the father to have the childs best interests at heart. I wouldn't give joint custody if he was a drunk or a lout or someone who was very irrational and may play games with access times or taking off to a different country without consent etc.
It needs to be a mature decision that you can both work towards the best possible care for your child.
Your child will get older and over night stays will become more and more acceptable, so you need to be able to ajust to that in time for your child to have a fulfilling relationship with the father. I agree, 10 months is still very young, but another year or so and one night a week will be good. You will know when the time is right :-)
