What Is The Exact Phrasing Of The Law Of &Quot;Finders Keepers&Quot;?
I Am Preparing For My Court Case Next Monday And Think This Piece Of Information Could Be Crucial To My Case. Its A Long Case So I'Ll Give You The Short And Sweet Version:
1) I Found A Small Black Dog In My Backyard.
2) My Neighbor Seems To Think It Belongs To Him.
3) He Claims It Answers To The Name &Quot;Shadow,&Quot; But After Numerous Tests, I Disagree. *I'M Planning On Doing The Test In Court To Wow The Jury*
4) Also If The Dog Happened To Be His At One Point In Time, By The Law Of Finders Keepers, It Is Now Mine.
5) The Neighbor Has A Wife And Two Small Kids, So I Think He Would Be Too Busy To Adequately Take Care Of The Dog.
So As You Can See I'Ve Got A Pretty Solid Case Here, But I Really Want To Drive It Home With The Exact Legal Definition Of Finders Keepers, Which Has Been Hard To Find. Any Lawyers Or Law And Order Buffs Out There?
Wish Me Luck.
I always thought it was called "Stealing By Finding".
Probate Attorneys In New York
How Can I Find A Probate Attorney That Either Works On Contingency, Offers A Payment Plan Or Can Request The Other Party To Pay The Attorney Fees And Court Costs.
What type of probate matter is this? If you are looking for a probate attorney, it is unlikely you will find one that will work on a contingency basis unless you are expecting to receive a substantial sum of money if they are successful. And even then it is unlikely because probate matters such as contesting wills are very difficult cases to win.
Many attorneys will allow you to pay the fees over time, as long as you pay the "hard costs" (meaning money they have to put out up front) as they are incurred. The only way to find this out is to ask them. They should also give you a consultation for no charge. This is where they review the facts of your case and give you an opinion of the likelihood of success and tell you whether they are willing to represent you.
If you win, there is a possibility that the opposing party could be required to pay attorneys fees or at least costs, but again, this is probate court and it is much different than a regular lawsuit. An opposing party who wins is not going to volunteer to pay your fees and costs.
You don't say WHERE in new York you are located so folks probably cannot give you a referral until they know that.

What Will The Attorney General Require?
If I Am The Non-Custodial Parent And I Pay Child Support Can The Attorney General Order Me To Obtain Medical Insurance For The Child Through My Employer? Or Do I Have The Option To Get Insurance From An Outside Source?
The Attorney General can order you to keep insurance on them, but most likely through whatever source you choose to provide it! It is most likely cheaper through your employer however!
What Are Penalties For Driving Under The Influence In Europe?
I'M Doing A Persuasive, I Have Statistics Of How Many People Actually Do Drink When Under The Influence In Europe, Etc. But I Can'T Find The Penalties For Doing So. I Understand Every Country/State Is Different. I Just Need Two/Three And I'M Good. Any Suggestions Where To Look That I Might Have Not Come Across?
I just saw this question and as somebody who's job is to deal with the German traffic laws I look forward to say something to the situation in Germany.
But I'm at work know, so I will answer in a few hours.
EDIT: Ok, before I'll go to bed, some information about the penalties for driving under the influence of alcohol inGermany; I'm sorry for my bad english.
Relevant for the penalty is the concentration of alcohol in the blood in one tenth-of a percent (0/00).
if you have a concentration from 0,5 0/00 up to 1,1 0/00, and you're driving without any unusual behavoir (f.e. "wiggly lines", accident etc.), you'll get finded (first time: 250 Euro, ban to drive for one month, second time: 500 Euro, ban to drive for 3 months).
For that you get "7 points". In Germany there is a kind of coint collecting system: for every misdemeanour in traffic you get points (f.e. a red traffic light: 3-4 ponts; using a cell phone while driving: 2 points.). If you reach 18 points, you get deprived of your licence.
If you have a concentration of more than 1,1 0/00 or you have a concentration from more than 0,3 0/00 and you show unusual behavior (s.u.), that is a offence concerning the german penal code ("Strafgesetzbuch"; §§ 315c, 316 StGB).
The penalties depend on the income of the contravener.
In usual cases (no accident, first time, no danger for others etc.), the contravener has to anticipate one up to one and a half income of one month.
He gets deprived of his license. The court decides about a period in which he is not allowed to get a new licence. Usually (s.u., no accident etc.) this period is about 12 to 14 months).
If the contravener has a concentration of more than 1,6 0/00, there is something special: Before the contravener can get a new license, he has to pass the MPU test (Medizinisch- psychologische Untersuchung; medical psychologic test).
The backround is, that if you are able to drive a car with more than 1,6 0/00, you are likely an alcoholic.
At the MPU you have to prove that you're not.
To do so, you have to absolve medical tests (about lever and sth.) for one year at regular intervals and you have to talk to a psychologist who furnishes an opinion about your drinking habits.
The maximum penalty for driving under influence in Germany is imprisonment for 5 years.
I hope you've understood something, I know, it is a bit complicated and my bad english does not make it easier :)
If you haven't understood sth please ask, and I'll try to explain it with other words if i can.
If you find somebody to translate from German into English, there are some might useful links:
- an overview about the penalties for driving under influence
- the crime code "StGB", look at §§ 315c and 316
- a law about conditions for drivers licences; look at § 13 for details of the MPU
EDIT2: I forgot something important because it's a very new law:
for about one year now, young drivers under 21 years and drivers who have the licence for less than two years are not allowed to drink at all (0,0 0/00).
It's fined with 125 Euro and 2 points.
Will Going To Juvenile Court With A Lawyer Vs Going By Yourself Make A Big Difference?
Will Going To Juvenile Court With A Lawyer Vs Going By Yourself Make A Big Difference?
My Niece Had An Incident At Walmart For Stealing $43 Worth Of Make Up.
She Is 15 And Was Taken Into The Back Room Of Walmart And Was Put There Until Her Parents Came To Pick Her Up. Walmart Called An Officer In And Both Walmart And The Police Officer Took Down My Niece'S And Her Mother'S Information On A Little Note Pad And She Was Released To Her Mother. The Police Officer Also Told Her That She Should Be Expecting A Letter In The Mail With A Court Date.
She Will Be Going To Juvenile Court In Gwinnett County, Ga. Would Going In There With A Lawyer Vs Not Going With A Lawyer Make A Big Difference? This Is Her First Time Getting Into Trouble Like This And Gets Excellent Grades, She Just Gave Into Temptation And Is Currently Being Punished By Her Parents.
Also, The Police Officer Hasn'T Given Her Any Type Of Documentation Regarding The Incident, Or Any Name Tag. Does Anyone Know Why He Hasn'T Given Her Anything?
She wouldn't necessarily get a copy of the officer's report unless she asks for it.
I have to think a judge/DA has a usual course of action re first time teen shoplifting that is not likely to be affected by the intervention of a lawyer unless there is something unique about her situation.
Chances are it's going to involve some community service or mandatory class , a smallish fine or some combination thereof. It's not like they want to take a good student out of school to throw her into Bad Girl Boot Camp!
Btw, a "free consultation" with an attorney will simply be a sales pitch that may make them think she needs a lawyer whether it's true or not. Either make a deal to expressly pay for someone's time/advice or don't bother. Personally, I wouldn't bother. I doubt if her parents goal is to make certain this is not the least bit scary or unpleasant for her, do you think? She'll be fine.
What Does Legal Separation Mean?
Actually both answers are kind of wrong and kind of right. Legal separation starts when a Stipulation and Property Settlement Agreement is signed. This document outlines which bills each party is responsible for (so in some cases, the husband may agree to pay for bills in his wife's name in exchange for something). I've known of couples living together during a legal separation. Usually this happens when you have a financially troubled couple that cannot afford to have two separate residences. They essentially live in separate rooms and do not act as husband and wife. Depending on your state, there is case law that outlines what makes or breaks a separation. For Virginia, a man and woman can live together in a household, legally separated, so long as they do not introduce or extend the other as their spouse, do not have sexual contact, and make it absolutely clear that there is no chance of reconciliation.
Basically, if you are in this situation, I would pay for a consultation with an attorney in your state. This generally costs any where between 75 and 250 dollars depending on the atty. He'll spend one hour with you and can answer any questions you may have regarding what a legal separation means in your state specifically. You will also not be obligated to retain him at that time...so it's worth it.
