3 Methods To Know You've Picked The Right Lawyer It's pretty intimidating to pass through the legal court system, particularly if you lack confidence with your legal team. Allow me to share three important strategies to understand that you've hired the right lawyer: 1. They Specialize In Your Type Of Case What the law states is often tricky and therefore requires specialists to tackle the tough cases. If you want a legal representative, search for individual who relates to the issue you're facing. Regardless of whether a member of family or friend recommends you use a firm they are aware, should they don't have got a focus that's comparable to your case, keep looking. Whenever your attorney is undoubtedly an expert, especially in the trouble you're facing, you know you've hired the correct one. 2. The Lawyer Features A Winning Record Based on the circumstances, it can be hard to win an instance, particularly if the team working for you has virtually no experience. Look for practices which have won numerous cases that pertain to yours. Even though this is no guarantee that you just case will probably be won, it will give you a significantly better shot. 3. They Listen And Respond In case the attorney you've chosen takes the time to listen for your concerns and respond to your inquiries, you've probably hired the best one. Regardless of how busy these are or how small your concerns seem from their perspective, it's crucial that they react to you in the caring and timely manner. From the point of look at a regular citizen who isn't acquainted with the judicial system, court cases could be pretty scary you will need updates as well as to think that you're part of the solution. Some attorneys are merely considerably better to both you and your case than the others. Make sure you've hired the most appropriate team to your circumstances, to ensure that you can place the matter behind you as soon as possible. Faith in your legal representative is the first step to winning any case.

I Really Liked Her And Told My Mom About Her . She Automatically Shot Down The Idea Of Me Dating Or Even Talking To Somebody Who Was Already 18. I Lied To The Girl And Never Told Her I Was 15, Instead I Told Her I Was 17, Going To Be 18 Too. I Never Told Her That We Couldnt Date Her Either. Almost Eight Months Have Gone By Since We First Started Talking And Im Worried My Mom Will Find Out... What Will Happen To The Girl In This Situation Legally ?
Other Info... We Have Never Met, But We Always Skype...Im Also A Girl...She Has Never Spoke Of Being Or Wanting To Be Sexual With Me...She Doesnt Know Im 15 And My Mom Doesnt Approve Of Me Talking To Her.
Currently, there are no legal issues and if you listen to your mom there won't be any. However, in the future your friend, as an adult, is committing a crime by sexting, communicating in any way with sexually explicit language or having sexual contact with a minor under the age of consent in your state..

Im The Plaintiff And My Husband Is In Another Country Since 2009.

How Does The Judge Expect Me To Make More Effort To &Quot;Serve&Quot; Him Without Telling Me What To Do?

Any Idea On What Else The Judge Could Expect Me To Do To Make Her Happy? She Didnt Say!
She Said &Quot;Make More Of An Effort&Quot; What Am I To Do, Knock Of Every Door?
I don't understand IF you were denied a divorce via putting a 30 day ad in the county where he resides??? THIS IS just how my ex divorced me! I live in NJ, he lives in MA, he put an ad in the paper for 30 days, got the divorce! I never knew but called "his" court house, asked if there was a divorce in our names, was told we were divorced for 6 yrs.!!! I sent for all the paperwork & that was that. IF this is what you were denied for, I DO NOT understand the Judges reasoning. This is done EVERY day all over the country! IF this is the situation you were denied, your atty. has work to do! An atty. is about the ONLY one who can hope to help you, there's NO reason he can't as there ARE ways of finding him! Are you sure you have a "good atty."?! I was a legal sec. & it's amazing the things they CAN do & investigate IF they are willing. I'd call attys. in the yellow pages who advertise FREE phone advice. See what a couple of them have to say re your situation...This makes NO sense to me...best of luck to you...:)
Do I Have A Malpractice Case? (Law Malpractice)?
I Need Help. I Have A Worker Comp Attorney, I Spoke To Him Only Once. I Call Him Numerous Times, He Never Returns My Calls. My Employer Insurance Carrier Sent Me A Letter Refusing To Pay My Treatments, He Receives A Copy Of The Letter, I Call His Office, I Left Him Messages, But Does Not Return The Calls. I Had To Go The Worker Comp Board, He Sent A Lawyer To Meet Me There. When I Got There, I Found The Lawyer Joking Around With The Risk Manager Of My Ex-Employer And Her Lawyer. I Had A Second Hearing, He Sent A Second Lawyer That One Informed Me The First Lawyer Went To Work For My Ex-Employer Insurance Carrier. Which Was Not A Surprise. He Never Set Up An Appointment With Me To Know The Nature Of My Job, How I Got Injured, Etc. The Insurance Carrier Never Made A Simple Payment To Me, If I Did Not Have Friends And Families At This Time I Would Be Homeless. Is There Any Malpractice?
None of that is malpractice -- but it seems ample reason to change lawyers. You always have the right to do that.
Which Profession, Doctor Or A Lawyer?
Here'S My History:
I Get All A'S In All My Honors/Ap Classes, But For Math And Science, I Have To Study My Head Off. However, For History/Public Speaking, I Have Always Excelled In It. Yet, I Think I Can Handle The Education For Either Of Them (I Know There Are Other Jobs Out There As Well, But These Two Are The Ones I Feel Most Passionate In Devoting Myself Into)
Which One Do You Think? Become A Lawyer Through My Strength Card, Or Strive To Become A Doctor Through Much Hardwork?
(I Really Enjoy Helping People As Well)
Ps Please Refrain From Answers Such As &Quot;Follow Your Heart&Quot; Or Anything Like That.
Im Deeply Serious About This Issue And Would Love To Hear Any Advise With It.
the lawyer bit never really interested me. I couldn't possibly defend someone who i knew was guilty. you have to lie.
a doctor would be more respected, whereas lawyers get a negative image for being crooks, sharks etc.
it's more work to be a doctor, but think about this way- if you ever want to move to another country, it would benefit you. being a lawyer in the US would only be valid and good for the US because you learned the laws for this country...
you may have to retest for being a doctor in another country, but US diplomas are recognized a lot more.
Private School Parent Responsibility To Pay After Divorce Decree?
My Son Just Turned 9 Years Old And Is About To Finish 4Th Grade. Ex-Wife And I Entered Him Into A Minnesota Lutheran K-8 Grade School Starting With Preschool. My Parents Helped With The $3000 Yearly Tuition For Us While Married. We Divorced Last Year August 2011. We Did Not Have Anything In Our Divorce Decree About Education Which Was An Oversight On Myself And My Lawyer. After Divorce She Agreed And Paid Half Of The Yearly Tuition For The Lutheran Private School Hopefully Setting A Precedence. I Owe Her 10,000 For The House I Pay Her Monthly For. She Preposed Moving Him To Public School This Year To Save Money And I Declined The Change. I Have Told Her Many Many Times I Will Gladly Pull $1500 From The End Payments Of My Monthly 10,000 Debt I Owe Her In The Settlement To Pay For Our Sons Religious Private School Tuition. She Keeps Saying Over And Over She Cant Afford It And I Keep Saying Over And Over Its Money She Wont See For Another 5 Years Till The Loan Is Almost Paid Off.
Question: Do I Have Any Chance At Doing A Motion To Modify (Child Support?) To Add What Should Have Been In The Original Divorce Agreement That We Equally Share Costs Of Private School Tuition?
Are There Better Ways To Go About Getting Her Support For Our Sons Private Religous Based Education.
Do I Not Have A Leg To Stand On And If I Want My Joint Custody Son To Keep Attending Private School I Will Fund It Myself And With The Help Of My Parents?
If My Parents Help With Me With My Half Of Tuition Like This Last Year Of School After Divorce But She Has To Fund Her Half 100% Through Paychecks Like This Last Year Of School After Divorce Does It Make My Ex-Wife Less Responsible To Pay Half As Far As A Judge Would Rule?
You can ask to modify your decree but that does not mean that you Will get your way. Just because she agreed to pay it one year does not legally bind her to continue. In my state, the courts would call that " a gift". You do not have the right to make her pay for this private education or to deduct any money from what you owe her to pay for this.
My husband pays child support, provides insurance, and pays half of all uninsured medical expenses All of this is in his decree. He also pays for plenty of extras, her cell phone and bill, computer, musical instruments etc.. While his daughter attended private elementary school, he paid half of the tuition because he is a good guy. He wanted her to go to public high school, not just because of the tuition hike but he started having some issues with her education system. He also did not like the fact that she rode with a bunch of teenagers nearly an hour one way. He believes she would have a more rounded education in a public school. Her mom insisted that she continue with her private education. My husband stopped paying half of the tuition. Why should he be forced to pay for something that he does not believe is benefitting his daughter.
He is far from a dead beat dad. He still continues to pay everything he is court ordered to pay and more..just not the tuition. His ex did not try to take him back to court. I don't think she would win if she did and I don't think you will either but that just my opinion.
Minimum And Maximum Fine For Felony 4 Charge?
My Friends And I Put Liquid Chlorine And Tin Foil In A Two Liter Soda Bottle Creating An Endothermic Reaction Turning The Liquid Into Gas And Making The Bottle Pop. What Is The Minimum And Maximum Fines For A Felony 4. I Am 16 Years Old And This Is My First Offense. The Charge Is In Arizona, About An Hour After We Did It The Police Showed Up And Accused Us. They Originally Gave Me A Misdemeanor 1 But Just Recently Raised It To A Felony. Any Input Would Be Great, Thanks.
I am reading your question differently from the poster above me. You were originally charged with a misdemeanor, but the DA's office brought this to a Grand Jury and has returned an indictment as a felony charge.
This tends to make me think it must have been quite an explosion ( with possible damages somewhere?) for a felony charge to be levied.
My thoughts here: are you being indicted as a juvenile or an adult? If this is a juvenile charge, it usually means probation and your record will be sealed upon emancipation. If you are being charged as an adult ( which I would suspect if property damages were incurred as a result of the explosion), then the chances of this being reduced back to misdemeanor as a plea bargain are definetely not good.
Having no further knowledge of the charge here, it is impossible to second guess what could happen. Best and only advice would be to discuss this with a competent trial attorney ( Yes, Mommy and Daddy will be upset and this is going to get expensive).
Best of luck and I hope this is useful to you
