4 Ways To Help Your Lawyer Assist You To When you really need a legal professional for any excuse, you need to work closely with them in order to win your case. Regardless how competent they may be, they're likely to need your help. Listed below are four important approaches to help your legal team allow you to win: 1. Be Totally Honest And Up Your lawyers need and expect your complete cooperation - whatever information you're gonna reveal in their mind. Privilege means what you say is held in confidence, so don't hold anything back. Your legal team should know everything in advance - most importantly information one other side could discover and surprise you with later. 2. Provide Meticulous Records Keep an ongoing and factual account of all information related to your case. Whether it's witnesses or payments being made, provide your attorneys because of the data they must enable them to win. 3. Turn Up Early For Many Engagements Never be late when you're appearing before a court and avoid wasting the attorney's time, too, by being promptly, each time. In reality, because you may want to discuss very last minute details or perhaps be extra prepared for the truth you're facing, it's a smart idea to arrive early. 4. Demonstrate That You Have Your Act Together If you've been charged with any sort of crime, it's important so as to convince a legal court that you both regret the actions and so are making strides toward enhancing your life. By way of example, if you're facing a DUI, volunteer for the rehab program. Be sincere and associated with the community the judge is presiding over. Working more closely with the legal team increases your likelihood of absolute success. Try these tips, listen closely to how you're advised and ultimately, you need to win your case.

Do Intellectual Property Lawyers Need An Area Of Expertise In Science/Engineering?
I'M Interested In Intellectual Property Law (Probably Patents). I Know That A Lot Of Patent Attorneys Have Previous Degrees In Engineering And Science, And I Do Not. Could I Still Work As A Patent Attorney?
It depends. To be admitted to the us patent and trademark office you need to either have a specific degree (there is a list) or have enough credits in the sciences to be allowed to sit for the exam.
However, other types of intellectual property (trademarks, copyrights) do not require a technical degree.
Go to www.uspto.gov and look for the requirements to take the patent exam.
Legal Question About Custody?
My Friend Has 100% Full Custody And Pshyical Custody Over Her Two Children. But The Father Only Has Visting Rights. She Wants To Move Out Of State For A Freash Start. Is She Allowed To Move Out Or Is She Not Allowed Due To The Father. Father Has A History Or Mental Illness In Out Out Of Hospital. Domestic Violence.
Ok FULL custody is a misnomer, it is called sole custody and usually in joint custody the noncustodial parent (the not living with the kids) has visitation rights.
The difference between sole custody and joint custody is usually found in what rights each parent has. for example if he has no right to say anything about education, religion, doctors and such, then she most likely would have sole custody. if she has to allow him a say in those things it is generally joint custody.
Either way, there iwll be rules for moving in the decree. it will probably be in a clause or section soemthing about geographic restrictions.
antoher way to tell if it is a standard custody agreement then there will be two set of visitation guidelines. those for parents residing within 100 miles of each other and another for parents residing more than 100 miles from each other.
She should read her custody order and seek the advice of an attorney if after reading it she still doesant know the answer.

They Reside In Another State, Do I Get Legal Help Here Or There? Would Legal Aid In That State Help Me? I Have Two Weeks Before Court Date, Any Advise?
I am not a lawyer, but I've seen similiar cases...
First off, you need to have a Home Study done, by someone
from the local DHS Office nearest you. (This is a require-
ment anyway, for when anyone is bringing a child into their
home, by court action.) This will be one step, ahead, for you.
Another thing. Who is the father of the baby? I would think
that the birth father, could have something to say about the
situation, too, and if he doesn't, then the birth father's parents
are next in line, to petition the court for any "physical"
connections to the child, too. They have the ''same Rights"
to the child, as you do.
Since you do work, and the child is still at the age to require,
a personal babysitter, then YOU WILL NEED DOCUMENTS
OF PROOF THAT YOU HAVE A COMPETENT SITTER,
or daycare for the child.
FOSTER CARE IS SUPPOSED TO BE A TEMPORARY
PLACEMENT, but your ex-husband, does have the right
to file for custody, since he is grandfather to the child, too.
You might check out the Resources, with a local Legal Aid
Office, near you..and another thing, you can go to the court
house, court clerk's office, and ask if you can file a request
for a Court Appointed Attorney. (I don't know a lot about that
type of service, but I know it's been done at times, by the
When any case on a child, goes into the court system, the
decision of the welfare of that child, then becomes the re-
sponsibility of the Court System, and the Final Decision
is made, by the Judge, of that particular court.
Some Court Systems, have Friends of the Court...which is
an advocacy service...and some places have CASA, which
is a child advocacy service, for the child.
Legal Aid Offices can be found in many locations. You would
probably have to go thru an office nearest you.
Generally, if no one had brought the case before the judge
your daughter could have allowed you to have the child, with
you, with only a written agreement, signed by both of you
before a Notary Public.
You may address the court, by written statement, and taking
the letter to the court clerk's office, or judge's office, and ask
for a postponement, of the case, until all parties, have had a
chance, to have Legal Representation. This is done, in many
court cases, over and over...
You will need documents to proof your residence, your own
income, and it wouldn't hurt anything, if you presented, a
statement from your medical doctor, and also get an eval-
uation, from a Mental Health Agency, as to your Ability to
Care for the child.
Everything that is done, on behalf of any child, brought before
the court system, IS SUPPOSED TO BE DONE ''IN THE
BEST INTEREST OF THE CHILD", and not for the conven-
ience of any of the Adults, involved in a case.
If the names of the Paternal Grandparents, are known, then
they have a right to also, petition the court for Custody or
If they are Known, and are still living, then the court needs to
know this fact, so that there is no further court actions, on
their part, at a later date.
Hope this helps. TF

talk to someone who knows your local laws. Also you never really asked a question that needs to be clarified, you just stated facts.
