Child Custody Lawyer - Central Illinois?
I Am Looking For References For A Good Child Custody Lawyer. This Lawyer Is Going To Be One That Will &Quot;Play Hardball&Quot; So To Speak.
General Details - Father Used To Have Life Challenges. He Has Been In Trouble With The Law. Said Parent Completed Probationary Period Along With Counseling And Any And All Classes Suggested To Help Him Become A Better Person. This Parent Has Changed And Would Have Character References From Many People Including The Mother Of Another Child, His Probation Officer, As Well As Co-Workers And Supervisors And Friends.
The Mother Has A History Of Playing Dirty Which Includes Telling The Child Lies And Keeping The Children From The Father, Just To Name A Few. She Is An Unemployed Gay Woman Living With Another Woman Who Works At A Fast Food Establishment.
It Is The Opinion Of Myself And Others That The Father Is In A Much Better Place In His Life To Raise His Children With The Appropriate Care And Proper Upbringing.

If Anyone Has Any Suggestions On This Matter, I Would Love To Hear Anything That Could Help.
well, im in the chicago area, so it is diff to recomend a lawyer in your area.
however, as far as il custody laws go, i am a little framiliar w that:
as a child, about 20 years ago when men never got their kids, my dad had a background and he did get custody of me. so, it is very possible that the father in this case can as well.
what they look for is the following:
1. are the children in good living conditions? is the house kept up? do they have their own bedrooms and beds?
2.she has no job. she has no means to support the children. it doesn't really matter what the partner does for work. if he is employeed, on paper he looks better.
3. in trouble w the law doesn't mean no custody. it is all done and over w, it is in the past. they look for troubles like domestic battery/child abuse, things along those lines which would, or have the potential to danger the life of a child. plus, he has character witnesses that say he's changed.
best of luck
I Am Being Taken To Small Claims Court, Where Can I Do Legal Research Online?
I Own A Mail Store And Am Being Taken To Small Claims Court For $300. The Claim Is So Small I Am Not Looking To Hire A Lawyer But In The Justice And Grand Scheme Of Things I Wish To Prove Myself. The Claim Is Over A Damaged Shipment Insured By Fed Ex. Fed Ex Will Not Honor The Insurance Claim So The Customer Has Now Taken My Business To Court. I Don'T Wish To Give To Many Details On The Situation But Am Hoping To Find Some Way To Track Down Similar Cases Such As Mine In Order To Show A Precedent. I Am Also Having A Hard Time Finding Laws That Protect Me As Shipper. If Anyone Can Point Me In The Right Direction It Would Be Well Appreciated.
to protect yourself in the future tell them that they must buy insurance on the item when shipped or you are not responsible for damage in the mails. Doesn't Fed Ex have insurance connected with it? UPS covers $100 per package I believe so you can ship UPS. If she was offered insurance on the package and didn't select it, then you may hve that argument in court.
If you stated taht you are not responsible for damages in the mail, then you have that arguemnt.
Is taking back the damaged item and replacing with a new item an option for you? The person should be required to bring the item to court with her/him.
As to reaearch you might go to consumer rights on the internet. I assume she paid $300 for the item and that is not some kind of penalty because she lost something else because she didn't get that in a timely fashion. I think you can beat that if it is the case as you sent the package in a timely way and it was the Fed Ex who messed up. You could possible bring in the Fed Ex as your own counter suit as part of the small claims claiming that if there is anything you owe, it is owed by Fed Ex and not you (if there was insurance on it).
With the US mail I odn't think they cover any isnurance unless it is purchased. You could use that as your own argument that it was the mails that messed up not you and she could have purchased insurance. But ff you didn't offer that option or you have a refund policy, you may be stuck to replacing it.
You could go to a court law library and see about researching a case there There are books that have cases in them but they arne't always easy to research. You an try your state and the law -- like Michigan consumer law or Michigan postal liability or whatever you can think of to try. You might be able to go to a law school and see about whether you can research fromt heir law library. I can't think of the name of the books but you lok up an index with whatever words you can thnk of to search and then you go to the cases to read the decisons and why and then you can look up to see if there were any that were overturned, etc.
There are on line places to do that Lexus.com and another one but I can't remember what they are now. It has been a long time and I didn't practice law so much as quasi law with a union. I hated the research part when it came to the fine tuning up as to overturned cases, etc.
It could be consumer law in your state. Postal damage might be a place to try. Good luck to you.

Legal Advice For A Bench Trial?
So, I Have A Debt Collection Company That Has Taken Me To Court For Outstanfing Credit Card Debt. At The Initial Hearing, I Disputed The Amount Owed As It Was Significantly Higher Than Even The Limit Of The Credit Card. I Now Have A Bench Trial Scheduled. Do I Have A Legitimate Claim To Defend Or Should I Not Have Opted For A Trial? And Is There Any Advice I Should Follow In Seeking Leniency?
If you have not consulted an attorney, nothing else matters much.
I work in courts which hear cases on credit card debt. Frequently, the amount owed is significantly higher than the limit on the card. And the judgment will include attorney's fees and court costs and post-judgment interest. So you could have had a card with a $5,000 limit. Adding late fees and penalties, the debt at time of trial may be $7,500 or more. Add another $250 or so for court costs and another $2,500 or more for attorney's fees. You are now looking at over $10,000 plus post-judgment interest, plus added attorney's fees and court costs for post-judgment collection efforts.
Consult your attorney.
Leniency may be related to punishment in criminal cases. The court may have no option when the plaintiff proves what you owe.
If you have a substantial amount to offer the plaintiff, you could negotiate a settlement. For instance, if you owe $7,500, you could, perhaps, negotiate a dismissal of the case based on immediate cash payment of only $3,000 or so.

Michigan Minor Labor Laws
Posted by Lacey
The Michigan Minor Labor Laws require that a minor who is eleven years old up to eighteen years old obtain a work permit. Standards were set in accordance to the Michigan’s Youth Employment Standards Act of 1978 in which the work permit certifies the age and compliance with labor laws prior to a minor starting work.
The minimum age for employment in Michigan is fourteen years old but a minor who is eleven years old may be employed as a golf or bridge caddy or a youth athletic performance referee. A minor 13 years of age or older may be employed in certain farm operations or setting traps for trap skeet or sporting clays.
Most Michigan employers comply with both state and federal child labor law provision in regard to working hours allowed for minors. In Michigan if a minor is under sixteen years of age they may work no more than six days in a week, eight hours per day when school is not in session; three hours maximum per day when school is in session and eighteen hours per week. As a result a minor is only allowed forty-eight hours in combined school and work hours in a week.
@@@@Minors’ ages sixteen and seventeen may work no more than six days in one week; a weekly average of eight hours per day and ten hours in one day when school is not in session. A total combined school and work hours cannot exceed forty-eight hours in one week. If a minor is working in agricultural processing they may not work more than eleven hours per day, sixty-two hours per week and not work between the hours of 2:00 a.m. and 5:30 a.m.@@@@@@
Some occupations are deemed hazardous for minors under the age of eighteen and not permitted to work include motor vehicle driving on public roads and water ways; any type of power-driven machines, exposure to radioactive substance; roofing operations, excavation operations; and construction work including painting. However, there are some exemptions from hazardous occupations that are allowed under federal child labor laws. These exemptions include students who are enrolled in related career and technical education training or apprenticeship programs.
