4 Methods To Help Your Lawyer Allow You To If you want a lawyer for any excuse, you must work closely with them to be able to win your case. Regardless of how competent they can be, they're likely to need your help. Allow me to share four important strategies to help your legal team allow you to win: 1. Be Totally Honest And Up Your lawyers need and expect your complete cooperation - irrespective of what information you're planning to reveal for them. Privilege means whatever you say is kept in confidence, so don't hold anything back. Your legal team must know everything in advance - most especially information another side could find out about and surprise you with later. 2. Provide Meticulous Records Keep a continuous and factual account of all information pertaining to your case. Whether it's witnesses or payments being made, provide your attorneys with all the data they need to help them win. 3. Appear Early For Many Engagements Not be late when you're appearing before a court and steer clear of wasting the attorney's time, too, when you are on time, whenever. The truth is, because you may want to discuss last minute details or perhaps be extra prepared for the way it is you're facing, it's a smart idea to arrive early. 4. Demonstrate You Have Your Act Together If you've been responsible for any type of crime, it's important so that you can prove to a legal court that you just both regret the actions and therefore are making strides toward boosting your life. As an example, if you're facing driving under the influence, volunteer for a rehab program. Be sincere and linked to the community the judge is presiding over. Working more closely together with your legal team increases your likelihood of absolute success. Follow these tips, listen closely to how you're advised and ultimately, you ought to win your case.

Grandma's Will Is In Probate....?
The Probate Is About Four Weeks From Closing..Can It Be Closed Sooner..We Just Got Approved For A Mobile Home, Which Grandma Left Us The Land, But The Mobile Home Dealer Is Waiting For The Estate To Close ..Do We Have To Wait?..Are There Any Probate Attorneys Or Mobile Home Attorneys Here That Can Help Me Answer This
I'm not a probate attorney, but am in law school. I believe that you have to wait until the probate is closed until you can recieve your share. You could contact a probate attorney, but by the time their petition made it through court, four weeks will probably be up.
Lawyers Or Attorneys Please! Legal Advice? My Customer Failed To Pay Me!?
Yes...Hi, I Am A Small Business Owner. I Paint Homes For A Living. I Also Attend College Full Time. I Recently Was Not Payed Money Owed To Me For Work That I Performed. My Customer With Held My Contract For Several Months Without Giving Me The Copy As Promised (Of Course...That Was A Mistake On My Part), But I Had Performed Several Extra Projects For Her..And Not Only Did She Not Pay Me For Those..But She Had Not Finished Paying Me For The Original Agreement Either. What Can I Do?
Having a copy of the contract would help, but not having a copy doesn't mean you're without recourse.
Without documents, the customer may argue that the additional projects were within the scope of the original agreement, and may argue that you agreed to less compensation than the contract provided. It'll be up to the judge (or jury) to determine whose argument has greater credibility. So always be calm, dignified, accurate, and honest when discussing this.
If she's a deadbeat, she's probably been sued before. Your state probably has a way to look up civil suits online. See if she has other collections actions filed or judgments against her.
You have two options.
1. Small claims court. Different states permit recovery at different amounts. One state may only permit $3000 and another $5000. If the amount you want to recover is in your state's ballpark, look into bringing suit in small claims court. You can represent yourself, but do your research. You can probably bring her other adverse judgments in as evidence that she has a history of nonpayment. Bring photographs and all documents relating to the case. Be very organized and very calm. Wear a suit or something professional and remove all your jewelry besides 2 earrings.
2. Civil suit. If the amount you need to recover is more than the small claims maximum, you're going to need to contact an attorney and bring suit in state court.

Family Court Child Support Question?
The Child Support Have Found The Other Party In The Case But Now They Are Talking About A Court Case But Don'T Have The Docket Number Or Anything But Have Given Me Which Court House To Contact, By Now Have They Sent A Letter To The Other Persons House Telling Them They Have A Court Date? And How Can I Find More About My Case If I Have No Docket Number Provided?
The clerk of the court in every courthouse in the United States has a docket index.
The index has the names of the parties listed. The cross-reference of the parties will show the docket number.
You have the court file pulled and review the pleadings and papers in it. There should be either a motion or order, or something directed to the responding party. It would have a court date and time.
In many states there is a "return day", for instance in California they list the date and time in the upper right hand corner of the first page of a court paper, showing when the hearing will be on the motion or order or order to show cause or whatever it is. The same is true for some courts in New York State and elsewhere.
Other states there's a separate notice of hearing or notice of trial.
In most cases there will be a certificate of service or a return of service showing that the party has been served.
In order to find this, you go to the clerk's office and ask them to look up the party by name and get the docket number and pull the file. Or they will tell you how to look up the party by name, get the docket number and then they pull the file with that information.
Hope this helps since we really don't know where the courthouse is and you didn't tell us.
Can I Fill Out My Own Divorce Decree Papers?
I Found My State Divorce Decree Forms (Entire Packet) Online For Free. Ok Great But I'M Not Sure If I'M Filling It Out Right. I Mean Its Pretty Self Explanitory But I Do Have A Few Questions. Can I Hand Write This Or Does It Have To Be Typed? Do I Fill Out The Final Decree Papers Or Everything But That And They Will Do It At The Court? Do I Just Take This To The Circuit Court And Say I Want To Turn This In And Pay A Fee? Please Help I'Ve Tried Everything Else And No Answers! Thanks Everyone!!
What state are you in?? The degrees and difficulties often involved with self filings vary widely from state to state. Also, I highly advise against you doing a self filing for many reasons. If you miss something even if it is through no fault of your own it can invalidate your entire decree. Not to mention that if your ex decides to behave like a ninny, it is a lot more difficult to stop if you do not have legal counsel. For your own sake, financial as well as emotional, I would advise you NOT to proceed without legal counsel. That having been said, in most states, divorces are handled in family court. You can easily find out where and how to file as well as the fees involved by calling the family court of the county you reside in and asking them the how to's. Alas, it is almost never as simple as turning it in and paying a fee. It always has to be final approved by a judge. Usually the process takes a minimum of 60-90 days and that is if it is totally uncontested. If you have children involved and have custody and alimony arrangements,...needless to say can get quite involved and expensive. I have been twice divorced and both times my hide was saved by a thorough and knowledgeable attorney. I beg of you not to proceed without at least consulting one. Most initial consultations are free anyway.
