Dog Bites Dog..In Need Of Legal Advice?
Long Story Short...In My House Are 4 Girls And 5 Dogs. Two Of The Dogs Owned By My Roommate Constantly Bite At My Dogs Face. My Dog Never Did Anything Till The Hundredth Time. The Incident Was The Little Dog Bit My Dog In The Face And My Dog Bit The Little Dong Back. He Caused Damage And My Roommate Expressed Feelings Of Being Scared Of The Bigger Dog So I Surrendered Him To The Humane Society. Now My Roommate Wants Me To Pay For The Damages To Her Dog...Am I Responsible Even Though Her Dog Instigated It? The Dogs Were In The Apartment When The Bite Happened. Both Me And My Roommate Were There. There Has Never Been An Issue With My Dog Before And From My Roommates Mouth, &Quot;Your Dog(Biter) Is Like My Dogs(One That Got Bit) Best Friend, They Play Together All The Time.&Quot;
If you need legal advice on a dog bite then you need to contact a lawyer who knows the dog laws in your area. Laws regarding dog bites vary so greatly from one community to another that someone else who has had the exact same thing happen might have a totally different legal outcome. The real problem here is that it is probably going to come down to your word vs hers. Since the bite happened on private property that you both share there was no leash law violation. Frankly if I were in your shoes I would not have allowed the other dog to interact with my dog with the history of the other dog biting like that. Every dog has a bite threshold...a point at which they can't take any more and they bite back. It wasn't fair to your dog to put him in that situation again and again and ultimately he paid the price for your mistake. You might try pointing out to her that her dog had a history of attacking your dog and that your dog was defending himself in this interaction. You might also point out that you got rid of your dog because she was unable to control her dog.
Legal Advice For Assistance Dogs?
Okay, I Have A Question. I Am Finding Myself Getting More And More Housebound Due To An Incident.

R People With Physical Disabilites. I Decided To Put In An Application Anyway But You Have To Email Them With Basically An Essay As To Why They Should Help You With No Guidance As To What To Say Or Do.

I Need To Get This Sorted Because Centrelink Want Me To Look For Work And I Really Want To Work But My Life Revolves Around Where My Dog Can And Cant Go.
You're putting the cart before the horse.
First, you need to figure out if you even qualify to have a service dog.
Your mental condition would have to be long standing and thoroughly documented by, if possible, more than one mental health professional. You would have had tried numerous medications, for a few weeks to months each, with documented proof they didn't work. The mental condition would have to substantially effect your life adversely every day, not occasionally. Your condition would have to fall under the Americans With Disabilities Act determination of a legal disability.
No Dr can write you a prescription for a service dog if you don't qualify.
If you pass the first step of being considered legally disabled under the ADA, step two would be "Is there a physical task which a service dog can perform that would mitigate your disability". The task must be directly related to your disability. If you had PTSD you couldn't have a service dog that picked up dropped items since that's not directly related to your disability. Poor hearing and vision that is improved by glasses or hearing aids would not be something that would justify the use of a service dog.
Only If you meet both qualifications can you legally have a service dog.
Providing comfort is not a legitimate task. Making someone feel better/more secure isn't a legal task. All "feel good or comfort" needs are fulfilled by Emotional Support Animals which do not have the same public access rights as service dogs and are not protected by the ADA. They are easier to qualify for though.
Having a service dog when unqualified, or placing a service dog best on a pet (a fake service dog) is considered federal fraud and you could face up to a year in jail, fines up to $20,000, high lawyer fees and confiscation of your dog.
Although I've never heard of DADS, if they want an essay, they want it from you, not someone else. Explain to them your condition and why you feel you need a service dog. They know the legal qualifications. Unfortunately, if they don't think you qualify, they won't approve you.
How Should I Dress As An Intern At A Law Office?
I'M Going To Be Working As An Intern At A Local Law Office This Semester.
What Should I Wear On A Day-To-Day Basis?
I Am A 20-Year-Old Female So I Don'T Want To Dress Like An Old Lady But I Want To Dress Professionally And Modestly.
I Was Thinking A Pencil Skirt With Heels And A Nice Blouse Or A Skirt Suit. Other Days Maybe Wear A Nice Sweater Dress With Leather Boots Or Something I Would Wear To A Funeral Home-Dark, Modest Dresses.
Am I Right Or Wrong About This?
Any Other Ideas?
And How Should I Wear My Hair? Should I Wear It In A Bun Or Just Long And Curly?
Also, Are Short Red Nails Okay And A Classic French Manicure?
Thanks In Advance And God Bless You All.
Dress professionally and modestly. Leather boots are inappropriate and are considered outerwear. 2" pumps or something similar, flats, as long as they are comfortable and businesslike are fine. Anything higher than 2 inch heels would be ridiculous. You will be running around and need to wear comfortable shoes, lower heeled shoes with slacks. What has funeral wear got to do with business wear in a law firm? As long as you aren't showing cleavage and trying to look like an attention-craving tramp, you should be alright. Some firms have a "casual Friday" but, that doesn't mean you can wear blue jeans. A bun, long and curly hair - just about any way you want as long as it is clean and not outrageous. Bright red nails make a statement. They might be telling people you are looking for attention. A lighter color might be better, a shade of pink or coral would be classic. Those are really the only acceptable tailored colors but, other colors might be okay if they don't scream. A French manicure would be fine. What you might do on your first day is ask HR if they have a dress code so that you can be sure you don't violate it. Most law firms have a written dress code. That's because there is usually someone who violates it at some point (a new person) and they are promptly sent home and then everybody looks down on them for a while. That doesn't happen very often but, it has. Business suits, skirts, slacks, dresses - not too short, no black fingernails - just use some common sense. Save your heavy garlic eating for Friday and Saturday and use only one spray of cologne. Some firms have banned it entirely because of people who abuse it and stink up everybody within 20 feet.
Japanese Divorce Law Question?
Something Doesn'T Sound Right About This. Can Someone Please Give Me A Little Insight?
I Have A Close Friend That Was Married In Japan. She Is From The Us And She Married A Japanese Man Almost 20 Years Ago. They Had 2 Kids Together - 10 And 8 Years Old.
She Now Wants A Divorce. They Went Through Separation Proceedings Already, But They Couldn'T Agree On Who Would Keep The Children.
She Is Telling Me That She Is Stuck In Limbo For The Time Being Because If She Does File For Divorce, She Will Lose All Access To Her Children Because She Is Not Japanese. Her Husband Also Has His Parents Living With Him, So Because Of That, He Would Gain Custody Of The Children Because His Parents Are There To Take Care Of Them. She Basically Has 2 Strikes Against Her Right Off The Bat.
She Says Her Only Recourse Is To Wait Until Her Children Of An Age In Which They Can Possibly Influence With Which Parent They Would Stay. I Don'T Know What That Age Is In Japan, So If Someone Knows That, It Would Be Very Helpful As Well. Apparently, There Is Also No Joint Custody In Japan.
Is There No Court Mediation Available Like In The States To Determine These Things Or Is It That Cut And Dry Over There? Something Just Doesn’T Sound Right About This. She Puts 20 Years Into A Marriage And She Is Just Going To Lose All Access To Her Children Because Her Husband Is A Lying, Controlling And Manipulative Jerk? I Realize Life Isn’T Fair, But Seriously?
"She puts 20 years into a... controlling and manipulative jerk?"
"Something just doesn’t sound right about this."
You can say That again!
OK. I will.
"She puts 20 years into a... controlling and manipulative jerk?"
"Something just doesn’t sound right about this."
There are four types of divorce in Japan:
* Divorce by agreement (Kyōgi Rikon), based on mutual agreement.
* Divorce by mediation in a family court (Chōtei Rikon), completed by applying for mediation by the family court (for cases in which divorce by mutual agreement cannot be reached).
* Divorce by decision of the family court (Shinpan Rikon), which is divorce completed by family court decision when divorce cannot be established by mediation.
* Divorce by judgment of a district court (Saiban Rikon). If divorce cannot be established by the family court, then application is made to the district court for a decision (application for arbitration is a prerequisite). Once the case is decided, the court will issue a certified copy and certificate of settlement, to be attached to the Divorce Registration.
Foreign citizens must show evidence that they are able to be divorced in their country of nationality and that the procedures used in Japan are compatible with those of their home country.
Joint custody of children ends upon divorce. In a divorce by agreement, the husband and wife must determine which parent will have custody of each child. In other types of divorce, custody is determined by the mediator or judge, with a strong preference toward custody by the mother (especially with regard to children born after the divorce).
Danger of Not Having Either Shinken or Kangoken
A parent who loses both physical and legal custody in a divorce has virtually no rights whatsoever with respect to his or her own children. He or she may not know where his children live, and the custodial parent can change the child’s name and have the child adopted by either a grandparent or a new spouse without his consent.
Adoptions usually require the involvement of the family court, except in cases where a child is adopted by a grandparents or spouse of a parent. (Civil Code Article 798.) “Special Adoptions” involving children under the age of six (or eight, in certain cases) require the involvement of the family court and the consent of the natural parent of the child being adopted, unless the natural parent is “unable to declare [his or her] intention or where there is cruel treatment, malicious desertion by the father and mother, or any other cause seriously harmful to the benefits of a person to be adopted." (Civil Code, Article 817-5, 6) Since a non-custodial parent does not even have a right to know where his or her child is, he or she would be unable to express their intentions.
"I don't know what that age is in Japan"
"six (or eight, in certain cases)"

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 :-)
