Several Legal Questions?
In Missouri, Can A Male Cop Search A Female?
If Someone Other Than The Driver Has Illegal Substances On Them, Will The Driver Be The One In Trouble?
Can Something Go On Your Record (Possession Of Those Illegal Substances) Without You Receiving A Ticket Of Some Kind?
Would I Be Able To Find Out Which Cop Pulled Me Over If They Didn'T Give Me A Ticket (And There Was No Police Report Of Any Kind As Far As I Know)?
Suppose The Cop Took My Money And The Substances. Taking My Money Was Illegal, Right?
If The Answer To That Question And The First On Are Yes, Will I Be Able To File A Lawsuit?
A male officer can search a female if he feels a weapon is involved and his life is in jeopardy. However, this does not seem to be the case in your situation, so the officer should have had a female officer dispatched to conduct the search.
In most states, if someone is in possession of illegal substances in a vehicle all parties in the vehicle will be charged. The reasoning behind this is that no matter which individual is in possession of the illegal substances all the parties in the vehicle were aware that the illegal substances were in the vehicle.
Since, it is not indicated in your question why the vehicle was originally pulled over the the officer, your next question is tricky. First, if illegal substances were found as a result of the officer pulling over the vehicle due to a traffic violation, the officer would report to the dispatcher that he was making a traffic stop which would include the license plate of the vehicle he was stopping. This would be a record of the officer stopping the vehicle which is how you can find out who the officer was. If the illegal substances were discovered during the traffic stop they would have been seized and all the individuals in the vehicle would have been arrested.
However, this does not seem to be the case. Therefore, taking your money was illegal as well as the whole incident that occurred.
Thus, you would be able to file a lawsuit against the police officer/police department.
Will Legal Aid Help Me With This?
My Grandma Said That If I Wanted To Get Emancipated Since She Has Cancer And That Way I Wouldnt Have To Live With My Mom If Anything Happened Cuz My Mom Would Go To Court And Say My Dad Is Unable To Take Care Of Us But It Would Cost Me Like $750 And Im Only 15....But Ill Be 16 In May..Will Legal Aid Help Me With This $750?
You have a misconception of the term "emancipation."
In MOST jurisdictions emancipation is a legal process that gives a person who is 16 or 17 years of age legal independence from his/her parent(s) or guardian.
Also, to become emancipated one must normally
~ be at least 16 years old.
~ have the ability to manage his/her own financial affairs.
~ have the ability to manage his/her own personal, social, educational, and non-financial affairs.
Your issue is more of a "custody" issue.
Most judges will consider your age, at 16, and give greater consideration to your desire to live with another family member.
To insure you have the proper guidence, I suggest you and your mother contact Legal Aid in your community who can assist you with little or no financial burden!

I Work In A Law Firm Performing Different Tasks But I Have Noticed That The Attorneys?
Hardly Ever Laugh Or Smile. It Seems It Is Such A Serious Environment. They Hardly Even Speak. Not That It Bothers Me But Pondering Why Is It Like This In Most Law Firms?
Yes, welcome to the World of Law. And WHY do you suppose your attorneys hardly ever smile?
Choosing a career is one of life's most important and difficult decisions.
We simply already have way too many Legal Professionals. ANd the legal profession is dramatically changing and is in absolute CRISIS!!! Job searching in this vocational field has changed >>DRAMATICALLY<< in the last five years. And, every year, more and more people graduate from law school, but there are fewer and fewer jobs. Even the largest and most reputable law firms are experiencing unprecedented cutbacks. I don't expect the situation to improve in the coming years.....
Be aware of what you are proposing on getting yourself into. Please do more research first.
Reminder: We are still in a World-wide Recession. Consider career paths that have available JOBS.<<<<<
Warning> Jobs in the field of Law are drying up fast!! This is just not a good field to invest time and/or money into. This is a SHRINKING, crumbling, and dying vocational field. Many reasons. We now have computers. So, many people today (mistakenly) think they can do their own legal work, thanks to the Internet. Also, there are a lot of companies out there making very efficient legal software for the field of Law. Today's graduating lawyers tend to be very computer savvy, so they just do the work themselves to save themselves the cost of overhead. Also, the "Public" buys this legal software in order to get legal work done without the cost of an Attorney. Also, we simply already have way too many Legal Professionals - we have an absolute glut!! ("Legal Professionals" includes, but is not limited to: Attorneys/Lawyers, Paralegals, Legal Assistants, Legal Secretaries, Bailiffs, Court Reporters, etc, etc)
Sites like legalzoom.com have taken away work that many small-time attorneys/lawyers would do.
The field of Law has a mystique that actually exceeds reality. The field of Law is an overrated career - mostly by television. There are many myths regarding the field of Law: working as a Lawyer is mentally challenging (Actually, most work as an attorney involves routine paperwork: research, cite checking, drafting documents, and document review. Attorneys need to write down and track every activity they do, all day long [in 6 to 15 minutes increments, depending on the billing system] - a painstaking but necessary task), being an attorney is thrilling, high-powered, and glamorous (remember: television is fiction - the fictional lawyers on TV are ACTORS - the majority of work that an attorney does, does not happen in a courtroom), law students think that because they are good at arguing they will become great attorneys (actually being a great attorney is more in one's ability to mediate between differing sides and bringing them to agreement), as a lawyer I can correct injustices (actually legal decisions are more about reaching compromises than about right vs. wrong), guaranteed financial success (actually when salaries are compared, you also need to account for cost-of living expenses [most large law firms are in large cities - the bigger the city, the more cost-of-living expenses will be], payment of debts accrued while attending law school, and time needed to build a client base. Many large law firms require lawyers to work 60-80 hours per week.).
Cost of law school to be lawyer, approx $150,000+.
Be prepared to take on a LOT of debt, if becoming an attorney is your "true", ultimate goal!!!<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
There are no jobs in this vocational field. My family, coworkers, friends, acqaintances, etc. have been laid off left and right in this vocational field.
Regarding being a Paralegal: Employers (usually law firms) in the field of Law today want employees with Bachelors degrees from traditional colleges/universities. Those "certificates" you see advertised aren't worth the paper they are printed on - they are generally scams. (I found this out the hard way.) Also, the law school's program needs to be accredited by the American Bar Association - if it isn't, you are just wasting your time/money.
Even if you finish law school, you won't be able to find a job when you are done. Since this vocational field is shrinking, many new attorneys/lawyers are, themselves, having to work "down" as Paralegals, Legal Assistants, Legal Secretaries, Bailiffs, Court Reporters, etc, etc, to simply try to keep some of their bills paid <<this would be your competition. And the competition is fierce!!
Now... the law schools know this, but they won't tell you the truth >that the job market/economy is just SATURATED with way too many Legal Professionals. Instead the schools will feed you a fairytale and will LIE to you. The root of the problem is we have too many law schools. We are in a recession, and the schools are fighting for their own survival - they will tell students anything to get to the students' money. (Which is why they won't tell you the truth about the job market for the field of Law.) And these schools continue to recruit and churn out even more graduates.............Remember: law schools are BUSINESSES - their top concern is making money for themselves.
>>>>>THE MOST IMPORTANT THING (and I can't stress this enough>): You ESPECIALLY have to beware of the bogus, inflated law school salary/job stats given out by law schools AND by the U.S. Bureau of Labor!!!*****
If you don't believe me, then just do a SEARCH here on Yahoo Answers to see what other posters are saying about the current status of the field of Law. Call some local law firms - ask to speak to the Manager of Human Resources - ask them if they are hiring; ask them what they think about job availability in the field of Law..................
In the book "So You Want to be a Lawyer?" by Marianne Calabrese and Susanne Calabrese (ISBN 0-88391-136-1): "The United States has more lawyers than any other country in the world. About 38,000 students graduate >each year< from the 200+ law schools in the United States. The competition is very keen for jobs and clients." - Even Associate Justice Antonin Scalia (who served on the U.S. Supreme Court for more than 20 years) says there are too many lawyers. (9/14/2008)

If you want a job when you are done with your studies, consider and look into the fields of: >>>Healthcare, Information Technology, Law ENFORCEMENT, environmentalism, emergency planning, accounting, education, entertainment, utilities, home-car-commercial-industrial repairs, vice industries, clergy, and/or debt collection. I spoke to a career counselor from Jobs and Family Services, and HE told me that these areas are where the jobs are, and future job opportunities/availability....and scholarships.

Law Degree- Job Opportunities?
Hi, I Was Wondering If Anyone Would Be Able To List The Job Possibilities From Graduating An Law Degree?
E.G. Human Rights Lawyer Etc...
Or Any Other Field Thats Possible.
But Mainly, What Kind Of Lawyer There Are Out There Thats Possible To Become.
It depends on the area of law you study. Specialties include: tort/personal injury, bankruptcy, real estate, environmental law, oil and gas, water, energy, banking, securities, tax, elder law, appellate practice, and so on. Certain specialties, namely business, securities, banking, and tax, can lead to corporate executive positions like VP, President, CFO, CEO, and the like. Oil and gas has a subset of legal practitioners called landmen who are responsible for finding, negotiating, and maintaining oil and gas leases. Tax attorneys can work for larger accounting firms to advise on special questions in tax law and transaction planning. Banking and securities law specialties can lead to positions with state and Federal agencies responsible for regulating those industries, and it's not uncommon for people with certain types of education to work in the FBI, Homeland Security, and other federal agencies as either agents or advisers. There are a lot of theoretical options available, but speaking as someone who just graduated from law school, it is VERY hard to find law jobs right now. I mean 45% unemployment hard. I just had four classmates apply to the accounting firm I work for. So a law degree is by no means a guarantee of a killer job.
When Looking For An Child Custody Attorney, What Should You Look For?
One person said a fighter. Depends on what you want. If you want to spend a lot of money and your goal is not what is best for your kids but what will hurt the other parent the most. Go for the fighter.
But if the person who at least at one time you loved, (aka your ex) and you love the children more than you hate each other. Don't take that route.
Look for an attorney that speaks English not Latin or legaleese Someone who you can understand.
Look for an attorney that makes you calmer not more stressed. There are the fighters. There also attys who see their roles differently. I don't mean to be condesending here, but sometimes the parents in a such a proceeding can act like 3 year-olds who missed their nap: "He leaves the toilet seat up. She nags me during the baseball game." And those attorneys realize it is their jobs to be the adults. To work out a settlement that avoids court, and that results in the children being able to have a healthy relationship with both parents.
Before you can ask what you should you look for in an atty you must answer what kind of a process you want?
One based on mutual respect with the interest of the children first and foremost.
Or, one in which you inflict the maximum pain on the children's other parent regardless of the damage it does to the children.
Once you decide that you can ask around to find the atty that will meet your expectations.
