4 Strategies To Help Your Lawyer Assist You To If you want a legal professional at all, you need to work closely with them to be able to win your case. No matter how competent they can be, they're planning to need your help. Here are four important ways to help your legal team enable you to win: 1. Be Totally Honest Or Higher Your lawyers need and expect your complete cooperation - irrespective of what information you're going to reveal directly to them. Privilege means what you say is saved in confidence, so don't hold anything back. Your legal team should know everything in advance - most especially information another side could check out and surprise you with later. 2. Provide Meticulous Records Keep a continuous and factual account of most information regarding your case. Whether it's witnesses or payments being made, provide your attorneys with all the data they need to enable them to win. 3. Show Up Early For All Those Engagements Do not be late when you're appearing before a court and avoid wasting the attorney's time, too, by being punctually, every time. Actually, because you may need to discuss last minute details or even be extra ready for the way it is you're facing, it's a good idea to arrive early. 4. Demonstrate Which You Have Your Act Together If you've been arrested for just about any crime, it's important so that you can prove to the legal court that you simply both regret the actions and so are making strides toward increasing your life. For instance, if you're facing a DUI, volunteer for the rehab program. Be sincere and associated with the cities the judge is presiding over. Working more closely with your legal team increases your chances of absolute success. Follow these tips, listen closely to how you're advised and ultimately, you need to win your case.

Does Anyone Use A Prepaid Legal Service?
I'M Thinking Of Signing Up For Prepaid Legal Service, Does Anyone Use This? Do You Like It? Any Restrictions For Pre-Existing Issues?
I use one that is like an insurance policy... you pay a small monthly premium and then if you need them, you pay a co-pay for service. There are certain limitations, but it's pretty much obvious. Since I get mine through work, I can't use it to sue my employer... and you can't use it to sue the attorneys themselves. Anyway, it's called ARAG. Haven't used it, but I feel safe knowing I have it. Wish I had it when I got divorced, that's for sure.
Rights Concerning Property Law?
Can Anyone Advise On Laws Concerning Property Between Same Sex Marriage ? A Friend Of Mine Was Legally Wed In Ma, But Has Always Lived In Ny. As Far As I Know, Although Not &Quot;Legal&Quot; In Ny, Same Sex Marriages That Are Legally Conducted Elsewhere Are Recognized Here In Ny. Anyway This Is The Scenario:
Jill Solely Owned A House 7 Years Prior To Meeting Jane. Jane Moves In, They Are Together For At Least A Decade, They Get Married In Ma. Somewhere Along The Line Jill Adds Jane To The Deed (Not Sure If It Before Or After They Are Married (Or If That Even Makes A Difference) Jane Meets Jack And Leaves Jill. Jane Now Wants Her Equal Share Of The Property. Jill'S Attorney Is Telling Her That Jane Is Entitled To Nothing Because From The Time She Moved In Til Now, The House Has Depreciated - But That Just Doesn'T Seem Like The Right Information. There Is Approximately 180K Of Equity In The House, And I Believe That (Despite The Marriage) Just The Mere Fact That Her Name Is On The Deed Will Entitle Her To 1/2 That Money. Jane Is Willing To Walk Away With 60K, But Jill Believes That If/When It Goes To Court She Will Be Entitled To Nothing. I Think She Should Lick Her Wounds And Fork Over The 60K So She'S Not Stuck Paying 90K. Does Anyone Know What The Laws Are In Ny And Whether This Attorney Is Giving Her The Right Information?
There are so many scenarios in this problem. Some say the appraised value which could be higher but in real life, the appraised value could be much higher than the house is worth period. Consider this, if the house is worth $180,000, but if sold tomorrow and only get $100,000 then that is the true value of the house. In many divorces, if 1 party cannot pay the other party, then they MUST sell the property and divide the proceeds.
Now also consider that 7 years before meeting Jane, Jill bought and made all the payments of this property. So the value could start from 7 years to the date they split up. What were the financial arrangements in this marriage?
Also, one point that I think is interesting, is that you state that Jill's lawyer is telling her this. Does Jane have a lawyer? If not, then she should get one period. Many times married people will hire 1 lawyer to handle a divorce to save money, but the lawyer's interest is the client he is representing period. So that works if both parties are basically in agreement on property division, but if there is a dispute, then both parties need a lawyer to protect each other.
Just like any divorce, what is fair and what is awarded maybe 2 different things. How many times have you heard someone state they lost everything or that the other party got stuck with all the bills etc. Anything is possible when you go into a courtroom before a judge, and nothing is guaranteed.
For Jane to know if Jill's lawyer is giving bad advice is that Jane MUST hire a lawyer to represent HER period. Only then will Jane know if this advice given is correct or not.
Would You Help Your New Spouse Pay Alimony To Their Ex Wife/Husband Or The Money Owed To The Divorce Attorney?
My Husband And I Have Been Married For 6 Months, Living Together For 4. While Dating, We Always Keep Or Finances Separate. He Was Already Divorced Before We Meet And Paying Alimony.

Which Let Her In Great Shape Financially, She Never Worked During The 8 Years They Were Married Because She'S Permanently Disabled (A Fake Back Injury Which Never Stopped Her From Spending Hours At The Mall, Salon, Etc). She Kept All Of The Physical Property, Was Held Free From All Debt That She Created $$$$ And Last Year Was Paid $60,000 In Alimony. Now He Owes Her An Additional 8K Plus Attorney'S Fees So About 16K Total. Here'S The Problem. He Had To Take A Massive Pay Cut When We Relocated 4 Months Ago (His Decision Not Mine) And Now He Doesn'T Have The Money To Pay Her. Which He Knew He Would Not Have At The Time He Agreed To The Final Settlement. He Assumed That I Would Pay It. I Didn'T Find This Out Until 2 Months Ago. I Have The Money But I Really Don'T Have It, If You Know What I Mean. It Would Mean Sacrificing Some Times That We Need. I Don'T Feel As If I Should Have To. I Have An 8 Yr Old. I Brought The House We Live In By Myself And I'Ve Already Spent 6K Towards His Personal Finances. His Ex Is Holding Him In Contempt Of Court. The Hearing Is Next Month And His Poor Excuse For An Attorney Is Threating To Drop His Case Because He Hasn'T Been Paid. He Thinks I'M Being Unsupportive For Not Just Giving Him My Money Thus I'M Hanging Him Out To Dry. We Argue About This All Of Time.
thats what happens when you don't discuss your finances before marriage. he seems to be hiding all kinds of financial problems from you, i wonder what will come up next. i say that if it was your agreemnet to keep you finances seperate, then they should continue to be seperate. but in the long run, its gonna affect you because he will have less money to contribute to your joint expenses. you bought him a house as well? he seems to be living good off you. maybe he is trying to milk you for everything you got.
How Will My Attorney Bill Me For His Services?
He'S Preparing A Trust For Deed (Title Search Etc), And I'Ve Been Told By His Friend It Will Cost Appx $500. Should I Take In Payment When I Sign Papers, Or Will He Bill Me?
*I'M Hoping He'Ll Bill Me Because I Don'T Have Another Paycheck For A Few Weeks.
Usually the first thing an attorney usually does is tell you how much he estimates the work to cost and then how he expects to get paid.
What might happen is that you do not get the product of his work until you have the money. However, a call to his office will clarify this.
How Many Clients Does A Good Lawyer Work With A Year?
That completely depends on a number of factors: the type of law the lawyer practices, the size of the clients, the nature of the matters, etc. A good lawyer could be handling multiple matters for a small number of clients, or a few matters for a large number or clients. A lawyer could also be handling a few matters for a few clients, where the matters are very large and time-consuming and span a long period of time. What type of lawyer are you thinking of? A litigator? Corporate lawyer? Criminal defense lawyer? Etc?
A Good Lawyer To Prevent Adoption?
Im 18 Years Old My Girl Is 17 I Got Her Pregnant 4 Months Ago When I Was 17 And She Was 16 Now Shes Trying To Give My Baby In Adoption And She Says That I Have No Rights To Fight For The Baby Im Trying To Look For A Good Lawyer Near Me I Live In Dallas Texas.. Im An Illegal Immigrant Btw.
Let's see, you are apparently unemployed, and subject to arrest and deportation at all times. What makes you think you could provide the best life possible for a child?
An adoptive family would need to prove their ability to provide a good home before they can adopt. You could probably find an attorney who specializes in family law through the local Bar Association, but I would doubt the ethics of an attorney who would take you on as a client. And, it would be expensive.
Why not seek free legal counsel through the Bar Association or a law school, and attempt to obtain an open adoption that would allow you to remain in contact with your child.
