4 Ways To Help Your Lawyer Assist You To When you really need a legal professional for any excuse, you have to work closely together to be able to win your case. No matter how competent they may be, they're gonna need your help. Listed here are four important approaches to help your legal team help you win: 1. Be Totally Honest And Up Your lawyers need and expect your complete cooperation - no matter what information you're gonna reveal directly to them. Privilege means anything you say is saved in confidence, so don't hold anything back. Your legal team should know everything in advance - especially information the other side could discover and surprise you with later. 2. Provide Meticulous Records Keep a continuous and factual account of all information associated with your case. Whether it's witnesses or payments being made, provide your attorneys because of the data they should help them to win. 3. Show Up Early For Many Engagements Never be late when you're appearing before a court and avoid wasting the attorney's time, too, because they are promptly, each time. In reality, because you may need to discuss last minute details or perhaps be extra ready for the truth you're facing, it's smart to arrive early. 4. Demonstrate You Have Your Act Together If you've been charged with any kind of crime, it's important to be able to prove to the court that you just both regret the actions and they are making strides toward increasing your life. By way of example, if you're facing driving under the influence, volunteer for the rehab program. Be sincere and associated with the neighborhood the judge is presiding over. Working more closely with your legal team increases your probability of absolute success. Try this advice, listen closely to how you're advised and ultimately, you must win your case.

What Happens In A Divorce Court Hearing?
Ill Be Having My First Court Hearing Next Month With My Ex. We Have A 7 Month Old Boy. She Currently Is Not Letting Me See Him Unless One Day A Week. I Have Asked Her If I Could See Him Some Other Day During That Week But She Never Responds My Texts Or Never Answers My Calls, When I Say Never Its Never. And The Times I Have Seen My Son, My Exs Mom Is Always The One Handing My Son Too Me And Has Giving Me Drama. I Dont Want My Ex'S Mom Involved Between My Son And My Ex. Also Another Thing To Point Out, My Ex Has Told Me Were I Been Lately Without Me Knowing She Was Following Me Or Anything. Can I Do Something About That?
Here's - among other things - a few things that you need to wrap your brain around.
The very FIRST thing you need, is to get a paternity test done; why? Think about this: In California alone, we have over 8,000 men paying child support for children that DNA evidence has proven they didn’t father. Most of the time in scenarios such as this, the “Daddy” assumes he is indeed the biological father and does all the right things, i.e. pays his child support, meets his visitation schedule, buys clothing and extras to have when the kid(s) is/are with him. Then, a bit of time passes, and one day “Daddy” bends down and says: “Hey, you don’t look like me” and THEN has a paternity test done - TOO LATE!
With the results in hand, Dad happily goes running back to court to have his child support altered or stopped altogether. What most judges say in cases like this is brutally simple: “Sorry pal, you waited too long to challenge paternity, keep paying at the current level” Trust me, this happens every day all across the country.
Next, never, EVER raise your voice or show anger when picking up, or dropping off the child; if she's keeping you from the child, the court will straighten her out on that. If you have to forgo a visit because grandma is being nasty, so be it, leave, drive away and KEEP RECORDS! I always used a voice recorder, then wrote my notes down later. If you show anger, the court will have you in handcuffs before you can spell your last name.
Next, be ready for the worst on your court date, and resist the urge to speak out of turn; be patient. Have good notes, and you’ll get your chance to speak. Let her shoot her mouth off, resist, resist, resist the urge to roll your eyes, speak out of turn, or make any gestures or scoff noises, anything like that. Judges HATE that
Here’s another tidbit for you: In U.S. divorce and custody cases, mothers are awarded primary physical custody of minor children - when such children are involved - over 90% of the time. Get it? That means, child support is going to be a big part of your life for the next 17 years, 5 months.
Get the DNA test done ASAP and if the kid is indeed yours, the court will set a visitation schedule based upon your work schedule, your proximity to where the child lives, child care etc. Start looking for your own child care provider; you don‘t want granny in your life any more than you have to.
The court will also look at your income and her income side by side, as well as both of your tax returns for the last 2 years; this is the “guideline” the court uses to set child support amounts; forget your expenses, the court doesn‘t care.
Hold onto your lug nuts there guy, its going to be a bumpy ride and again, get that paternity test done ASAP and no matter the cost. If that child isn’t yours, you’ll thank me till the day you die and you‘ll save thousands and thousands of your own dollars.
Good luck, and if it turns out the child is yours, go to Amazon and get Dr. Warren Farrell’s book, Father and Child Reunion.
Hang in there, and stay calm….
Can Anyone Recommend A Good Personal Injury Attorney In California?
I found a good local personal injury attorney here in Hutchinson, KS, whose name is Matt Bretz, by asking another attorney friend. They all know each other and refer business to each other based on their expertise. As it turns out, Mr. Bretz used to practice in Los Angeles. I will give his bio and contact information below, but I wanted to let you know that I hired him to do an hour bonus video for a web site we have. My sister was involved in an accicent and was offered $7,000 by the responsible company but she had to have 14 surgeries as a result of the accident and they cost her hundreds of thousands of dollars. She sued them and won over $1,200,000 because of her organizational skills. She now helps others win their lawsuits. You can read more about her at www.howtowinyourlawsuit.com. She gives a one hour bonus video done by Matt Bretz offering advice on personal injuries. He packs a ton of information into that video. Here is his bio. You can call him for advice or ask for a referral to a California attorney.

Can A Minor Sign A Custody Agreement?
If A Parent Of A Child Is A Minor  Can They Sign A Custody Agreement Without A Parent Or Attorney Present? If Later That Parent Wants Custody Of Their Child Back [Life Is Cleaned Up, They Are An Adult Now, Married, Employed Ect] Can They Use The Argument That They Were A Minor And The Agreement Is Not Legally Binding?
[This Is A Last Resort]
The Case Is In Texas
Anyone can sign anything. Anyone can argue anything. Custody agreements are never binding until and unless they are approved by a court. Once they are approved they are enforced because the court has ordered it, not because the parties agreed to it.
If, on the other hand, you are not talking about custody at all, but termination of parental rights, and surrendering custody to a government agency, that will be approved by a court and once approved it is final and the court does not need your agreement.

I Found Out He Has A 5Year Old Daughter He Has Never Supported.The Mother Has Put A Freeze On The Property.I Asked My Son To Give Me My Home Back Several Months Ago Since He Don'T Do What He Promised To Do.Is There Anything I Can Do To Get My Home Back From Him. I Am Disabled And I Am Afraid I Will Be Left Homeless. Can His Ex Wife Get It To Get The Child Support He Owes In Child Support. My Son Is A Dead Beat Father And A Dead Beat Son. Please Give Me Some Advice As What To Do.Thanks Treva Shelby
You could contact an elder law attorney, and maybe there's a chance he can get a judge to invalidate the deed transfer based on the fact that it was part of an agreement which your son is not upholding. However, if you didn't put anything in writing then you're going to have a tough time of it. The house is your son's property now, so the law is mostly on his side.
