Need Some Lawyers Advice?
To Start Off If It Matters I Live In Connecticut. So Last Night I Was At A Little Gathering With 5 Of My Friends At My Friends House With Out His Parents There. Cops Showed Up At His Home And Entered Without A Warrant Or Even Asking To Come In. While There They Said They Saw Someone Run Into The Basement And That Gave Them The Right To Enter His Home. (No One Ran Into The Basement). When They Entered The Basement They Didn'T Ask Each Individual If They Had Been Drinking But Only One Person Who Apparently Said Yes Everyone Was Drinking. Now When They Were Asked Who They Saw Run Into The Basement They Were Speechless For A Good 10 Seconds Until They Said Someone Wearing A Red Shirt Ran Down The Steps And Was Apparently In Danger. The Cops Said They Were In The Area And Saw This Happen Yet My Friend Lives At The End Of A Dead End Road And His House Is No Visible From Any Other Road. So Then The Cop Asks Us Our Information Etc And Gives Me A 136$ Fine For Underage Drinking, Let Me Remind You I Never Once Said I Had Been Drinking Nor Did A Cop Ever Bring Out A Breathalyzer To See How Much Alcohol Anyone Had Consumed. What Can I Say Or Do To Either Get The Ticket Lowered Or Completely Removed? Thank You Very Much.
This is a toughie - the cops were obviously lying in giving themselves "due cause" to enter your property - where was this red shirted person. It might be worth talking to a lawyer to see if the ticket could be quashed on the basis that the cops did not have a right of entry - it'll be up to them to prove they did. The Great big fat liars!
Would You Rather Work In Legal Aid In Se Florida Or Start Over In A Private Firm In Ny?
I'M Probably Going To Have To Leave My Private Firm Here In Fla. Due To Politics And Am Considering Two Things. One Is Working For A Local Not-For-Profit Such As Legal Aid Representing Indigent Clients (I Know, I Know) Or I Could Go Back To Ny Where I'M Still Certified And Have Some Connections And Start Over In A Private Firm. The Pay In Legal Aid Here Is #$%@ (~$47K) But I'M Now With Back With My Husband Who Can Earn.
My Husband And Family Is Down Here And I Would Hate To Ask Them To Move. My Husband Has Been Thru A Lot The Passed Year And Now Seems To Be Having A Banner Year With His &Quot;Art&Quot; He Also Got A Job With Benefits At A College. My Sick Mom Is Also Down Here In Fla.
I Haven'T Lived In Ny In Many Years But I Do Like The Fast Pace And The Idea Of Being In The Center Of The Legal Universe. What Would You Do?
NY is not the center of the legal universe. That is merely the self-delusion of the lawyers who work there.
You can work as fast and as hard as you want as a legal aid lawyer. No one is going to tell you to slow down.
Choose your family over your work. Your family is much more important.
How Do I Locate A Maryland - Pg County Lawyer For Pro Bono Work?
I Am Preparing To Go For A Custody Modification Hearing And Would Like To Have Legal Representation. Any Suggestions On Local Lawyers Looking To Do Pro Bono Work In Maryland Would Be Appreciated.
Thank You In Advance!
Some county bar associations offer pro bono services, but Prince George's County Bar Association does not. Their website does have a list of organizations that provide pro bono lawyers, but the source below (CourtReference Guide to Maryland Courts - Legal Aid and Lawyer Referral) has a better list.
Click the link and you'll get a list of links to legal aid organizations. Most require you to be below a certain income level. Look for links that mention "free and low-cost legal assistance" or "find civil legal help" or "legal aid" or "volunteer lawyers". Most of the linked websites will allow to search by location, e.g. PG County or your city.
Md --≫ Md, Jd... How Tough Will It Be, Climbing Up The Ladder To Malpractice Law?
I'M A Practicing Md (Surgeon), Getting Tired Of It, Considering, Retiring From Medicine And Pursuing Civil/Med. Malpractice Law... What'S My Outlook After Law School On The East Coast Of Us, As Md, Jd?
Great outlook. A number of med/mal law firms look for MD's to bolster their firm resume. YOu have a better understanding of the subject matter, and much more experience with "standard of care" so having an MD and some years of experience should make you extremely marketable.
FYI, another legal area that recruits those with MD's is Intellectual Property law, especially patent law. Pharmaceutical litigation and patenting is an extremely complex field that requires knowledge of the science behind the product, so you would be pretty marketable in that regard as well.
I'M Going Through A Divorce And My Spouse Is Contesting Custody. Can You Guys/Gals Share Some Personal Experiences With Custody Battles, For Example, What Happend, What State, How Things Turned Out... I'M Just Nervous And Wondering What Others Have Experienced. Thanks In Advance!
I'm in Illinois.. there were some issues involving him physically abusing me and him being medically able to care for our daughter without supervision (he had severe epilepsy and an explosive disorder) so, joint physical custody wasn't a problem. But, he tried to fight me for joint legal.. in my state, they have to prove you can reasonably make decisions together.. my atty stated that if we went through all the hearings / mediation without being able to agree, and if I came across as reasonable, that I would have sole legal custody too.. I followed his advice, and it came down to the final hearing, but the mediator and his attorney had told him what the law was and what the outcome would be, so while we were waiting on the judge, he agreed for me to have both sole physical and legal custody. I also had pictures of the bruises and cuts he left all over me on a couple occasions, as well as the police report, restraining orders, and mine and my daughter's counselor's recommendations as evidence of what trying to make decisions together was like. After my daughter was born, he didn't hurt me like that.. he would throw things or hit things, but not her or me... until the last day I was there... and that time he came at me in front of her... I was lucky to get out, and to be safe and happy with her now..
Opinions On Child Support?
My Stepson'S Mom Is Taking My Husband For Child Support & We Are Wondering What To Expect.
- We Have Ss For A Week & She Has Him For A Week, Repeat
- We Pay For Daycare, Camp, Health Insurance, Drum Lessons, Anything Major, Etc
- They Were Never Married
- She Is Unemployed (Got Laid Off In Nov)
- She Has No Driver'S License (Got A Dui)
- She Has No Other Children, My Husband Has Our 3.5 Mo Son
- She Has An Online Blog (Which I Printed) In Which She Writes About Drug Use, Promiscuity, Etc Since 2005
How Do You Think The Courts Will View This Case & Do You Think That We Could Get Primary Custody? Any Other Insight?
First, you need to know that the child support guidelines are not set in stone. They are just guidelines. You can make a case for not paying so much.
1988 Public Law Record
SEC. 103. STATE GUIDELINES FOR CHILD SUPPORT AWARD AMOUNTS.
(A)(a) GUIDELINES TO CREATE REBUTTABLE PRESUMPTION.-Section 467(b)
of the Social Security Act is amended-
(1) by inserting (1) after (b):
(2) by striking, "but need not be binding upon such judges or other officials;" and
(3) by adding at the end the following new paragraph:
(4) "There shall be a REBUTTABLE presumption, in any judicial or administrative proceeding for the award of child support, that the amount of the award which would result from the application of such guidelines is the correct amount of child support to be awarded. A written finding or specific finding on the record that the application of the guidelines would be unjust or inappropriate in a particular case, as determined under criteria established the State, shall be sufficient to rebut the presumption is that case."
NEVER pay your child support directly to the mother as it can be considered a gift and not support. Always pay threw the court.
As for the blog, print it out because it can be used as evidence.
I’ve been a Father’s Rights Advocate for 20 years.
Many think the courts are rigged against dads, but in reality, it is more about attorneys unwilling or lacking the knowledge to truly fight for the father's rights. This is why it is important to learn how to interview and hire the right attorney. It is also important to do as much as possible on your own and not pay the attorney to do it.
Part of the problem with getting your rights knowing what to do to prove your case, and how to remind the judge of their responsibilities. Let me start with the judge.
Always take people with you to court who are not there to testify. Make sure they are sitting where the judge can see them, each equipped with a tablet and pen to take notes. It’s best to use a Court Watch Form designed for this purpose. I have one in the manual at Dads House.
If the judge is not doing his job, using the info from this form, you can, appeal, and/or get the judge sanctioned and removed from the case. You file a complaint with the State Supreme Court at your state capital.
Start keeping a daily journal of all your activities. The most common way to prevent a father from getting his rights through the courts is a false allegation, usually sexual. Over 60% of divorcing father are accused of child sexual abuse, of which only 4% are found to have any relevance, but there are no penalties for doing so. A daily journal is your number one piece of evidence in court and you can even refer to it while on the stand.
Gather evidence. Check the site below to see if it is illegal to record conversations without the other person knowing. If your state does not have a law either way, than it defaults to the federal ruling which says one person in a conversation must know they are being recorded. You’re that one person. In Missouri it is specifically legal, in Kansas there is no mention either way. If you live in two different states, and one has a law against it, than it applies when the call originates from within that state,
Now, you can't just record, you also have to transcribe it into the daily journal.
