Finding An Experienced Lawyer Regardless of what your legal needs are you will notice that there are numerous lawyers in your neighborhood that advertise that they can concentrate on your type of case. This may make the entire process of finding one with significant amounts of experience somewhat of a challenge. However, when you follow the following it is possible to narrow down your research off to the right one in very little time. Step one is to generate a set of the lawyers which are listed in your neighborhood focusing on your circumstances. When you are making this list you must only include those that you have a good vibe about based on their advertisement. After that you can narrow this list down by using a bit of time evaluating their site. There you should be able to find the number of years they have been practicing and some general details about their success rates. At this stage your list needs to have shrunken further to people which you felt had professional websites as well as an appropriate level of experience. You ought to then make time to look up independent reviews of every attorney. Make sure to browse the reviews rather than relying on their overall rating. The details inside the reviews will provide you with a sense of the way that they communicate with their clients and the time they invest into each case that they are working on. Finally, you will need to talk to at least the very last three lawyers that have the credentials you are searching for. This gives you time to actually evaluate how interested they may be in representing you and the case. It really is important to follow many of these steps to ensure that you find a person which includes the correct degree of experience to get you the best possible outcome.

Divorced Four Years, Husband Stopped Paying Alimony?
Was To Get Alimony For Life. He Stopped Paying And Is Trying To Terminate Paying Me At All. He Is A Successful Business Man. I Never Went To College, No Job Experience. Worked Menial Jobs Occasionally, Now Work Per Diem Part Time For Minimum Wage. He Is Uncooperative During The Deposition, Not Producing Documents Requested, Not Answering Questions. Can He Get Away With This? My Attorney Gave A Deadline To Produce Documents But My Guess Is That Will Come And Go As That Was The Way My X Handled The Original Divorce. I'D Like To Know If Anyone Has Been In The Same Type Of Circumstances Or Knows Of Any Similar Situations. Also, Can He Get Away With This?
No, he can't get away with this. After three months of not paying your alimony, your lawyer needs to go back to court and seek to have your husband held in contempt-of-court and punished. And he should ask for the monies owed to be paid plus interest. It may even be possible that the alimony to be paid monthly be turned into a large lump sump payment. Consult with your lawyer to make sure you don't get screwed over.
Your ex doesn't want to pay for his obligations...don't let him get away with it. Use your lawyer and take him back to court. If you are very lucky, the judge might even toss your ex into jail overnight to reflect on his legal obligations. Good luck and God bless!
Addendum: Jessica, although you say it is no longer possible to get alimony for life in your state, in many states it is still possible and it does happen. California is a good example. If a woman is married in California for ten plus years and her husband divorces her, she can get alimony for life. And if you don't believe me, go ask Tom Cruise all about it. He got stuck with alimony payments to his ex, Nicole Kidman, but he got lucky because she remarried...and remarriage is the one thing that will stop "alimony for life" (any other kind of alimony too).
Addendum #2: If the agreement says that your ex can modify it but you can't, then it is an unfair agreement. Have your lawyer point that out to the judge. Also, if he is claiming poverty, demand to see his tax returns.
Can Someone Give Me Some Info On Being A Contract Lawyer?
My Brother And My Sister Both Graduated In Criminal Justice...And My Brother Is Now In Law School. He Was Telling Me I Should Look Into Being A Contract Lawyer Because He Thinks I Would Like It? He Kind Of Told Me A Little About It. How Can I Make My Decision On That Possibly Becoming A Goal Of Mine? Because My Major Now Is Kinesiology And It Is Too Much Math And Science For Me.. :/
A contract lawyer is a lawyer that works for an employer on a project by project basis. It is a reference to employment status rather than a practice area, and being a contract lawyer in the United States for most assignments is a horrible job to have that pays a low hourly wage with no employment benefits and lousy working conditions (Skadden Arps supposedly has their dozens of contract attorneys hidden away in the basement of their office building - no joke).
I'm going to be a bit more optimistic though and assume that your brother simply got his terminology mixed up and meant a corporate lawyer which deals with a wide variety of contracts under business laws. Becoming a lawyer, in any practice area, is not something that is likely to lead to a satisfying career unless you can get into one of the top law schools in the nation and do well in that school. Of the thousands upon thousands of lawyers in the United States, many of them are either unemployed or highly dissatisfied with their careers because they are stuck working in low wage jobs with crushing student debt. Others have managed to survive as a lawyer long enough to eventually build a successful practice or become a partner in a small firm or otherwise managed to make a satisfying living trhough hard work over the course of years and years hard work but probably would have done things differently if they had known pursuing a law career would lead them to where they are (i.e. as a lawyer, life gave them lemons so they learned to make lemonade). Only a small percentage of lawyers ever achieve the status of a successful corporate lawyer in a big law firm.
The one thing about becoming a lawyer that is nice is that you can hold off on making the decision until your last year in college or even later than that because you don't need any particular major or class focus to get into top law school. It is based almost exclusively on the reputation of your college, your GPA, and your LSAT score, which should leave you with plenty of time to research the legal field to decide if it is the right career choice for you. In fact with a bachelors degree with a high GPA from a good college, it may be possible for you to get a job as a corporate paralegal for a few years to see what corporate lawyers do and decide if that is something you want to do before you spend over $100,000 in law school tuition (this is what I did).

Average Annual Income For Lawyer...?
What Is The Average Annual Income For A Lawyer In The U.S.? Like How Much Do They Approximately Make Each Year?
It depends on what type of law you practice, what market you're in, where you went to school, etc...
Some Harvard grads graduate into jobs making $150K, and some graduate lower-tier schools only making $45K.
Private practice lawyers typically make more than public sector, but again, it depends on your market. New York and Chicago lawyers will make more than somebody in Portland, Oregon.
