I Live In Nj; During A Divorce Proceeding, My Nephew Had Been Accused By His Now Ex Wife Of Domestic Violence. However, Police Were Never Called To The Home, And He Nor His Now Ex Wife Had Ever Been In Front Of A Judge For A Complaint Of 'Domestic Violence.'
Can A Person Just Make The Claim That He/She Had Been A Victim Of Domestic Violence In A Divorce Court Without Ever Having To Go In Front Of A Judge, Or Ever Calling The Local Police, Or Ever Filing A Complaint Of Domestic Violence??
I'M Just Curious Of What Other People Think; This Case Had Already Been Closed...Divorce Already Finalized. I'Ll Provide What Transpired After I Receive At Least 5 Responses To This Question. Just Interested In Public Opinion...And What Other Lawyers May Believe..
The claim of domestic violence likely is to somehow collect more marital assets. Claiming it in this case is not like claiming it in a criminal case, were a person's guilt or non-guilt is being determined.
It is very common for both sides of a divorce to claim all sorts of things. They are entitled to claim whatever they want. However, the merit given to each statement varies based on evidence (for example, medical records showing contusions to the face, bruising on the upper arms, or police records as you mentioned). Without any evidence, the judge will only give the claim so much weight. At that point, it's up to how plausible it sounds and the judge's impression, which may be to throw it out altogether.
Legal Advice; Chronic Neck And Back Pain From Car Accident (1 Year Ago). How Can I Get All Expenses Covered?
3Herniated (Neck): 2 Buldges (Mid-Back) 3 Buldges, 1 Hernaition (Low Back). I Live In New York And My No-Fault Coverage Was Cut Off Around June. I Still Have Pain And I Am Still Taking Pain Meds (Percocet). I Haven'T Been Able To Work Due To The Pain And Depression That Has Set In Since I'Ve Also Rarely Left My House Since The Accident. The Lawyers Tell Me That I'M Only Entitled To The Minimum Settlement ($25,000) Since Both He And I Have The Minimum Coverage On Our Automobiles. The Accident Has Also Left Me Without An Atuomobile. My Lawyers Also Will Not Do An Assest Check On The Guy Who Crashed Into Me; One Reason Was Because The Guy Could Hide His Assests Once He Knew There Was A Check Being Ran (Total Nonsense Excuses). Am I Wrong In Thinking That My Lawyers Are Lying To Me (Not That Lawyers Are Known For Telling The Truth)? Is An Assest Check An Absurd Request For A 24 Year Old, Who Was In Excellent Shape And Mind Be4? More Money Would Be Nice, Expenses Is Goal!
Contrary to popular belief, lawyers HAVE TO tell the truth. If they do not, there can be severe penalties. I think that the stereotype arises because lawyers represent opposing parties so it always sounds like somebody is lying, it is the nature of the court process to have two versions of a story get presented. So as a first suggestion, I respectfully suggest that you lose the bad attitude, but listen to your instincts and if you are not happy with your lawyer's opinion, get a second opinion from a different lawyer.
You also may qualify for benefits from the Social Security Administration if you are disabled. This process can take awhile, but can end up resulting in a hefty retroactive award dated back to the date you filed. There are lawyers who specifically handle these types of cases, usually on a contingency fee, so you should consult with a lawyer who handles Social Security law to find out if this is an option for you.
Here is an article called "How to Find Legal Help When You Can't Afford It" which has links to legal resources, including attorney referral services, in every state:
And I agree that in general what your lawyer has said sounds odd, because what about wage garnishment, liens on personal or real property, tax refund intercepts, et cetera. However, I can't give you legal advice because the answer is dependent on the laws of your state and the specific facts of your case.
You may be able to find asset information on your own at this link (such as property records):
Unfortunately, if the guy who crashed into you only had minimum insurance, there simply may be no assets available. However, I don't know how easy it is to hide assets when it is done just to avoid liability - laws are different in every state so you need specific legal information and legal assistance to answer your question.

What Can I Do To Get Myself Out Of This
I stopped reading as soon as you said "I took one because I thought I would not get caught." You knew they were stolen. You may not have know what he was going to do, however you did after the fact. You are guilty of taken known stolen goods. You may be charged with accesory as well. You cut the fence? Come on? You knew what was happening.
Depending on your age it's grand theft and a variety of other things. If you are not a minor, my only advice is get a good lawyer. Some chargers maybe dismissed. I can't tell you because I was not there, and that's for the judge to decide.
Make good decisions at any age on what friends you have.
After jail comes prison. You will not like it, I know. It's terrible experience. Do not let yourself get caught up in this system! You can be great. Get education now because they do not have it there!
Good luck truly! I hope only the best.
I Need A Defense Attorney To Help Me Fight This Ticket, I Can Call Legal Aid Services For One Right?

If I understand this correctly, you was driving straight and the other guy was making a left turn? Anyone making a left turn must yield to all oncoming traffic.
But, your question is a little bit confusing, since state from the left turn, was on your lane, so this is a classic who has the red or green light question.
Many times when someone makes a left turn, while waiting for oncoming traffic to clear (in opposite direction), they will be in the intersection 1/2 way and wait to make the turn safely, the light will turn red before they can make it. So even though the light could be green for you, "in effect", when you came to the intersection, you have a duty to verify that there is no traffic to continue through.
Did you file a claim with your insurance company? If so, did they pay the other driver for his damages, or did they deny it and pay nothing? IF, they denied his claim, you could come to court and dispute the light based on the fact your insurance company denied the claim to him, (based on him having a red light). Also, many adjusters can get hold of cameras in investigating liability and I have done so myself as a former adjuster.
The problem with tickets, is that the cop at the scene and after taking statements from both parties, will make a "call", IF, they believe someone broke some kind of law and issue you a ticket. This cop could in fact be racist, or, based on the statements of both of you, thought you were at fault for this accident.
Your best defense is your insurance company, since the job of an adjuster is to take all the facts, look at damages and determines fault, by a thorough investigation.
As a general rule, legal aid will not get involved in tickets.
How Long Can The Divorce Form Be Served In California?
The Petition Filed The Divorce In California?
But Half Want To Continue The Case, Half Want To Withdraw.
The Ealiest Case To Be Finalized In California Is 6 Months & 1 Day After The Form Is Served To The Respondent.
To Have Little More Time To Think About It, Can He Hold On The Form, Not Give It To The Third Party To Serve The Form Yet.
How Long Is The Deadline For A Divorce Form Should Be Served?
The normal time to serve the divorce case is within 60 days of when its filed. That being said, you are allowed to change your mind and never serve it. California courts do not push people to get divorced, they want people to think long and hard about it. That's why you have to wait 6 months from service to even get it finalized. You could wait a year to serve it and I doubt anyone from the court would complain and if they did you could just tell them that you were thinking about it.
Free Divorce Attorney In Fort Worth Texas?
Need Help To Get A Divorce,But I Have No Money And 3 Boys.Any Help Or Info Would Be Great!!Thank You
First, in Texas he can ask for a jury trial. Too many women on the jury and he will get custody.
Start by not being a failure to your children and yourself. Regardless of what you feel, your children deserve to have an intact family. Over 80% of children develop behavioral problems as a result of divorce. That means that at least two of your children will suffer from your failure.
If you have to get a divorce, see a mediator and go for bird nest custody.
It’s a form of access or custody where the children stay in the former family residence and it is the parents who rotate in and out separately and on a negotiated schedule.
The children simply live at "home" and the separated or divorced parents take turns living with them there, but never at the same time.
The core element of this arrangement is that each parent maintains a separate residence where they live when it is not their turn at the "bird's nest". When one parent arrives for his/her designated time, the other vacates right away, so as to minimize or eliminate the presence of both at the same time.
At times, bird's nest access can be coupled with specified access with the other parent say, for example, for dinner one night a week.
Sometimes, this form of access or custody will end when the youngest child reaches the age of majority at which time, one parent either buys the other out of their interest, if any, in the former family residence, or it is sold and the proceeds divided pursuant to the matrimonial property regime or separation agreement.
The arrangement can be expensive as it generally requires that three separate residences be maintained, the "nest" and a separate residence for each parent.
The concept is somewhat novel and appears to have as its origin a Virginia case Lamont v Lamont.
In Canada, Greenough v Greenough was a ground-breaker case in that the Court implemented a bird's nest custody order even though it had not been asked for by either party. Justice Quinn, in Greenough stated:
"In Lamont ... the court made a bird’s nest custody arrangement in which the children (aged 3 and 5 years) remained in the home, with the mother staying in the home during the week and the father on the weekend. I think that the benefits of a bird’s nest order are best achieved where the children are able to stay in the matrimonial home, particularly if it has been the only residence that they have known....
"Time and time again I have seen cases (and this is one) where the children are being treated as Frisbees. In general, parents do not seem to appreciate the gross disruption to which children are subjected where one of the parents has frequent access. In this regard, I do not believe there must be evidence that the children are suffering before the court is free to act. To me, it is a matter of common sense. At the risk of falling prey to simplistic generalities, I am of the view that, given a choice, I do not see why anyone would select a living arrangement which involved so much movement from house to house."
