Any Florida Contract Attorneys On Line, Question??
What Constitutes A Legal Contract. If You And Your Customer Sign An Agreement, And State What The Services Are To Be Performed, And A Payment Arrangement, Does It Matter How Other Contractors And The Industry Do It Or Does It Only Matter On That Contract? If A Contractor Has A Contract That States His/Her Policies And It Differs From A Industry Norm, Does That Give Anyone The Right To Change It Because Of The Norm Not Being The Same As The Policies?
Doug, I swear you asked this 24 hours ago. Don't contractors sleep in Florida?
Everything is negotiable. Your customer is free to shop around for the best price and terms, but once he picks you and you sign a valid written contract, that's it. You are his contractor.
Contracts for services are not like buying a sweater at Sears or a car stereo. You can't just return it if you decide you can get it cheaper somewhere else.
I Need Child Custody Advice, Please Help!?
Please Only People That Know About The Laws And Can Give Great Legal Advice.
My Fiance', Derek And I Have Been Together For A Year. He Has A 5 Year Old Daughter, Charity. She Has Lived With Him/Us For The Past 2 Years. When She Was Born Her Mother, Amanda Didn'T Put Derek'S Name On Her Birth Certificate, So By The State Of Delaware, I Don'T Think He Has Any Parental Or Biological Rights. But After She Was Born, She Refused To Let Him See Her Whatsoever, Even Though He Paid Her $100 A Week Child Support, Every Single Week, He Paid Her Out Of The Kindness Of His Heart To Help Support His Daughter. When Her Life Got A Little Difficult After Having 2 More Children She Finally Gave Charity To Derek And He'S Had Her Ever Since. But The Entire Time She'S Been With Us, Amanda Hasn'T Paid Any Child Support, Bought Anything For Her, Wasn'T There On Her Birthday, Or Got Her Anything For Holidays, And Probably Only Saw Her All Of About 20 Times In 2 Years. When She Moved About 10 Miles Away From Us I Even Went Out Of My Way To Pick Amanda And Her Other Children Up So She Could Spend Time With Charity. I Have Babysat For Her, Given Her Hand-Me-Downs Of Charity'S For Her Other Children, And Everything. Now All Of A Sudden, She Takes Her From Us, With No Warning Or Anything. (Inside Story: She'S Very Jealous Of Me, Because 1-I Have Raised Charity For The Past Year And 2-Because Derek'S Mother Also Hates Me, And Has Been Putting 'Stories' In Her Head About Me That Aren'T True.) But Anyways, She Only Lets Derek Come Over To Her House To See Charity For A Couple Hours On Sunday. She Won'T Let Him Leave With Her. She Refuses To Let Me See Or Talk To Her At All. Now She Is Trying To Put A Restraining Order On Me When I Have Been Nothing But Civil Towards Her. And If We Have Her Served Custody Papers, Derek Is Afraid She'Ll Stop Letting Him See Her Until The Entire Trial Is Over.
She Lives With Her Grandmother(Very Mean, Abusive Person), She Has No Job, 2 Younger Daughters, Lives Off Of Child Support And Food Stamps.
Derek Is A Manager At A Car Dealership And Makes Very Good Money. Right Now We'Re In A Rut, Because We Just Moved Back Into Town, And We Haven'T Found A Place To Live Yet So We'Ve Been Staying In A Hotel. Everything We Pay For Is Out Of Pocket, No Welfare Or Food Stamps.
Charity Wants To Be With Us, Her Mother Is Keeping Her There Against Her Will And Filling Her Head With Junk. She Smokes Pot, Drinks, Takes Pills. And Half The Time She Pawns Charity Off To Friends And Family To Babysit So She Can Go Party. She'S An Ex-Stripper, And Is Not Anywhere Close To Being A Decent Role Model Or Positive Influence In Her Life.
I Am Losing My Mind, I Don'T Know What To Do. I Haven'T Seen Her In Almost 2 Weeks Now And I'Ve Been So Depressed. I'Ve Taken Care Of Her For The Past Year Every Day While Derek Works, She Even Started Calling Me Mommy, And She Loves Me So Much And Now Her Real Mother Won'T Let Her See Me.
The Sick Part About This Entire Thing Is That All Of This Is To Try To Get Derek To Leave Me, His Mother Is A Horrible Person And She Wants Me Out Of The Picture, And They All Think That If They Can Get It To The Point Where Derek Has To Choose Between Me Or His Daughter, That I Would Go Away. And I'M Not Going Anywhere, I'M A Way Better Parent Than Amanda Will Ever Be And I Want To Raise Her Into A Beautiful Wonderful Person...
I Need Some Serious Legal Advice, Because I Don'T Even Know Where To Start. Someone Please Help Me...
Find a custody lawyer who can help you. From your side of the story it sounds like you guys have a really good chance at custody. Since he is not listed on the BC as father, a paternity test will probably be required. The court will also set up temporary custody arrangements during the process so she won't be able to keep his daughter away from him. You also really need to get out of the hotel. The court will favor her for being in a house even if she has all that crap around.

Workers Comp is different in every state. So I will tell you what I know about TX workers comp. Workers comp gives you life time medical on your knee. 20 yrs from now if your having problems, workers comp will pay. They also pay all medical bills that you have right now. You didn't say if you were on state workers comp or private workers comp. My husband is on private workers comp. When the Dr says its time to go back to work, he will get evaluated, his final check will be based on his impairment. Say the Dr says hes 25%, the insurance will figure it like this. 25 X $336 (his weekly check) You can call you adjuster and ask how they base your final check. Since your Dr says you wont be able to go back to your job, you should contact a lawyer. Hope this helped a little.
Unmarried Fathers Rights?
Our 18 Year Old Son Whose 16 Year Old Girl Friend Will Be Having His Baby Soon. She Has Nothing Against Our Son And Acknowledges Him As The Father And Says That She Loves Him. She Wants To Put Her Maiden Name Only On The Birth Certificate. What Rights Does My Son Have If His Name Isn'T On The Birth Certificate And How Can He Legally Get It On It. We Live In Minnesota. There Are Two And A Half Years Between Them, Not Three.
First of all, you need to cover all your bases before taking legal action regarding fathers' rights.
From what I've read, your son is safe from statutory charges as she is 16 and he is not 19 or over.
Have you already taken the step of talking to the girl and letting her know how important it is that your family name also be on the certificate. Don't do it an angry, pushy or rude manner. Talk to her like an intelligent person and try to come to a compromise, such as hyphenating both names. Let her know that it could cause difficulties in the future or embarass her children when other kids ask "Why don't you and your daddy have the same last name?" Also make sure that she knows your family/son will be there to support the baby and her efforts forever. She may feel like she is doing this alone, and thus wants to get the credit for it. If she felt as if your son and family supported her pregnancy (parenting classes, family activities) she may be more inclined to listen.
If none of this works and she will not listen, and your family/son is taking responsibility for the child, you have legal options. (see the third link). If she acknowledges him as the father on the birth certificate, he has a say in the name. If she doesn't acknowledge him on the certificate and you can prove that he is acting responsibily and is the child's father you can get a Court Order of Parental Responsibility, which will then give your son the ability to add his name to the birth certificate and alter his baby's name.
There are many details and nuances to these laws and may vary in Minnesota. You'll need a lawyer if it comes down to it. Oh, also, make sure to keep detailed records of visits and monetary support (write checks or money orders and put information in memo lines) so that if it comes down to this or she fights for custody in the future, you'll have proof that your son or family is supporting the child both financially and physically.
But lets hope that she'll understand where you're coming from and you have a great familial relationship!
Some People Study Law And Become Attorney ,Some Medicine And Become Doctor?
Some Study Psychology And Become Psychologist ,Some Study Engineering And Become Engineers And So Many Other Field But When Are We Going To Study &Quot;Being A Human&Quot; And Become Simple Humanbeing ??????????????????????
some people study law and become novelists, (David Grisham) and some people study medicine and become novelists and producers of quality television shows (Michael Chricton)
Your work does not define you, rather you define your work. The average human being never explores beyond the boundries society sets up for them, and that's fine if they need the saftey net. A few brave incidivuals stake out new territory and more the boundries. That's what deliberate living is all about. We were born human beings. Our parents take us through the abridged version of evolution in eighteen to twenty four years, and then we get to play on our own for sixty to eighty more. We define our humanity however, humanity does not define us. It just provides the outline we start from and some of us love to color outside the lines!
Child Custody Rights?
I Know Each Case Is Different But In General What Rights Does The Father Have To His Child If He Was Never Married To The Mother? He Is On The Birth Certificate. We Have Never Lived With Each Other. Would He Be Entitled To Overnights? I Am Not Going To Deny My Daughter Her Father, I Haven'T Contacted A Lawyer But Just Was Curious What It Would &Quot;Look Like&Quot; If We Did Pursue A Custody Case With A Lawyer. Again, I Know Each Case Is Different But I Am Justt Looking To See If Anyone Has Been Through This Situation And What Was The Outcome And What Is The General Idea Of It All. Btw, She Is 11 Months. Thanks For Your Answers.
In many cases and jurisdictions, the child who is born out of wedlock is in the sole legal and physical custody of the mother and the "putative" father may be made to pay child support, but have no visitation rights. He may choose to seek a determination of paternity, in which case, he may gain some rights upon receiving a successful outcome. This area of family law is very, very blurry and the judge has lots of discretion.
This is not legal advice and I am not an attorney in your state. If you have any questions whatsoever about this situation, you should consult an attorney for advice
Note to Lela A: You couldn't be more wrong. Many states have abandonment statutes which preclude parents from having ANY rights to a child if they haven't had continuous and systematic contact with the child(ren) for a particular amount of time. Consent is irrelevant in this situation as well.
