What Is The Title Name Of An Attorney That Handles Foreclosures?
Real estate attorney.
In some states a foreclosure is really a trustee sale and a trustee will handle the process. Many trustees are attorneys.
The easiest way to know who handles the bulk of the deals in your area is to look at the Notices Of Default (NOD) in your county. Each notice will have a contact person for that NOD. Those are the people who are handling the transactions in that area. If a name comes up a lot then you know they handle most of the business.
In California Does A Person Have To Pay Taxes On A (Physical) Personal Injury Settlement?
I'M Not Sure What A 1099 Form Is Or If And When I Will Have To File It For My (Physical Personal Injury) Settlement. Any Info Or Input Would Be Greatly Appreciated.
No, CA conforms to Federal law in this area... compensatory damage money for personal injury is not taxable income. However, punitive damages and lost wages ARE income for both Fed & CA
You should not send a 1099, as that is required of payers, not payees. If you do receive a 1099misc, the amount should be in box 3 NOT box 7. You then show it on 1040 line 21 and then deduct the same amount from AGI on line 36.
Any lost wages should be reported by the payer on form W2 with deductions for Social Sec. & Medicare.

Be A Lawyer Is A Profession For A Christian And Religious Man???
I'M A Christian And I Want To Be A Lawyer But Many People Tell Me That This Is Not A Profession For Christians,What Do You Think???
I have a friend who's not religious nor practising, but born (herditarily) Jewish and he's the most honest lawyer I've ever seen. He refuses to do things that are wrong. He REFUSES to take jobs that are wrong.
The only reason there are "fringy" lawyers is because they worship and need the $$$.
Are you willing to make less money, pick and choose your clients and their cases based on your feelings and faith? If you can say yes to that, do it!
As a lawyer you will be faced with things that conflict and it's up to you to make them fit.
You have to pick and chose cases and try them. You have to champion people who need it.
Sometimes a Christian might have the better solution.
Take the cliche, an Atheist who's kid is not allowed into the Boy Scouts because he won't pledge allegiance to God. As a Christian can you defend that and win that and make both sides not feel offended? Can you present a point of view!
Remember JESUS was once LAWYER.
A bunch of people were stoning a whore named Mary, as the Old Testiment and Laws of Moses said they should and JESUS defended her and sought relief from the judgement of law and WON!.
And he did it without violating the Bible or his faith or his religion.
Can you be THAT good! If so, you will be an amazing lawyer!
Terminating A Fathers Rights?
Ok I Live In Illinois
And My Brother Is Wanting To Give Up His Rights To His Ex Wife. She Is Now Married So The Child Can Be Adopted.. We Dont Want Him To But I Said I Would Look Up Some Info.
Does Anyone Have Any Info Or Websites About Fathers Giving Up There Rights. Also The Ex Wife Said She Wants Him To Give Up The Rights. If My Brother Agrees To Wanting To Give Up His Rights What Does He Have To Do?
Again The Family Doesnt Want Him To But Im Also Wanting This Info Bst And Most Help And Answers Get The 10 Points
The ex-wife and her new husband would have to file an adoption petition, and then your bro would have the chance to consent to the adoption. At that point, he would voluntarily terminate his parental rights. However, this all needs to be approved by a judge, and if the new guy is not willing to adopt the kids then the ex is out of luck. Your brother needs to contact an attorney, and the ex-wife also needs an attorney. But she should initiate it, and pay for the adoption and all that.
Giving up rights is a HUGE deal and the courts don't take it lightly. Does your brother have regular visitation with his child? I know you said he pays support but does he have a relationship with his child? This is a really big decision and he needs to think hard about it. Yes, he wouldn't have to pay support anymore but at the same time he would no longer have any rights or say regarding that child.
Why Do Lawyers &Quot;Practice&Quot; Law?
Why Do Lawyers Use The Term &Quot;Practice&Quot; Instead Of Saying I Work In Legal Field Or Something Like That. Why Is The Term &Quot;Practice&Quot; Used.
I deal with lawyers on a near daily basis (Im a police officer). I too asked several lawyers this question a few months back. The answer I received was pretty suprising. Laws, while black and white in some areas, are gray when it comes to others. Its in these gray areas where lawyers "practice", by this they mean try to get judges or juries to see their interpertation of the written law.
Laws are not inflexible. Even the cut and dry, black and white laws are not truly set in stone. For example: Yes you killed somebody. It is your defense lawyer's job to produce why, your emotional state, other mitigating circumstances that could possibly sway a jury to think that your were justified in doing what you did. Thats the practice part, using their skills at oration, persuasion and interpretation to outwit the other lawyer.
We Have To Somehow Establish Custody Right?
My Child Is 3 Months Old And Her Father And I Have Separated Ways, Never Married. Now I Have Learned That Neither One Of Us Has &Quot;True&Quot; Custody Of Her. My State Does Not Prese Custody If Paternity Has Been Established. We Live In Two Different States But Apparently If He Came To Take Her One Day Noone Would/Could Help Me. We Breastfeed So That Helps Me A Little But I Am Afraid. So We Made A Custody Agreement That He Would Only Pay 300 In Child Support And I Would Have Primary Custody, Otherwise He Could Not Afford To Come Visit Her. I Said Ok We Can Make That Work And I Was Really Relieved. But To Make That Legal We Have To Get It Mandated By A Judge, We Can'T Sign And Then Notarized Because That Apparently Has No Standing In A Case Like This. Every Lawyer We Have Seen Cost Way Above What We Can Afford Even With Offered Payment Plans. They Are Saying Around 1000 Down And I Make 200 Too Much For Low Income Assistance. He Says Fine Let'S Not Go To Court We Have Our Agreement. That Sounds Great But Should I Risk Him Finding Out He Can Take Her. What If He Finds Out While She Is Visiting With Him, How Do I Get Her Back? Advice?
Okay first off, i don't care if he is on the birth certificate or not, or what forms he has signed, if you haven't been to court to establish his paternity he doesn't have any. if he tries to take the child from you at any point in time your ace in the hole is "I'm not even sure he is the father", and poof he is just joe schmo off the street that took your kid. Now that is the dirty way to play it, but if push came to shove that is how you are going to have to do it.
It sounds like you guys are really trying to be civil and I HIGHLY encourage you to continue to BE civil, that is what is best for your child. I also encourage you to make this legal, because it will stop the headaches down the road. The reason why you can't just write it up yourself and ge it notarized is because there are certain things that every county requires in a custody agreement and if you don't have that exact language it isn't a binding agreement. that is where the Judge comes in, they aren't there to decide things like custody, that really wasn't suppose to be their role, they are interpreters of the law. For example I thought my husband should make his former girlfriend pay $200 a month in child support until the child was out of college, as long as they were a full time student. Sounds reasonable right? Well in GA no child support can go above the age of 19 and that is only if the kid is still in high school, so what i thought was reasonable was actually not allowed in GA and would have invalidated the agreement.
Your best avenue here is to become a mini-lawyer. It can be done and it's not too hard, you have to find the forms on line for YOUR STATE, because that is where the child lives so that is who has jurisdiction. You fill them out, you are the petitioner, he is the respondent, and then fill out the form. Go to the court house, file the form with the clerk and you will get a court date. Go to the court date with what you think are reasonable requests that you have both agreed to like the primary custody, and a detailed holiday schedule and child support....etc. and then let the Judge tell you what is okay and what isn't and what you are missing.
In GA the Judge usually has what is called a court lawyer. This person does the bidding of the Judge, so if you were to file your petition, and both show up for court, and agree to everything in detail the Judge will look it over and if everything looks good he/she could then give it to the court lawyer to draft up for you to sign. if you were in GA the whole thing would cost you about $250 to file and get him served with the papers....and in most states it is a lot less.
if you have questions on what to file the court of clerks office MIGHT help you over the phone. They strictly speaking aren't allowed to give you legal advice or tell you what to file, but they could tell you for example "You can't file a custody motion without also filing a child support motion at the same time"...see, some counties they are together and some are different. This will probably take a few trips to the court house to make sure you have everything but you can do that yourself and then just get it all sorted out and get him served with a time to be there.
