4 Strategies To Help Your Lawyer Assist You To When you need an attorney at all, you need to work closely together in order to win your case. Regardless how competent they can be, they're gonna need your help. Listed below 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 - regardless of what information you're planning to reveal in their mind. Privilege means what you say is stored in confidence, so don't hold anything back. Your legal team needs to know all things in advance - most especially information one other side could check out and surprise you with later. 2. Provide Meticulous Records Keep a regular and factual account of most information related to your case. Whether it's witnesses or payments being made, provide your attorneys with the data they must enable them to win. 3. Turn Up Early For Many Engagements Do not be late when you're appearing before a court and prevent wasting the attorney's time, too, because they are punctually, each time. Actually, because you may want to discuss last second details or perhaps be extra prepared for the truth you're facing, it's smart to arrive early. 4. Demonstrate That You May Have Your Act Together If you've been charged with any type of crime, it's important so as to prove to a legal court which you both regret the actions and so 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 included in the cities the judge is presiding over. Working more closely along with your 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.

Legal Information, I Need Help?
I Had Sex With A Girl And Recorded It Without Her Knowing And I Showed My Friends And Then Deleted It, She Found Out I Showed People And Now She Wants To Press Charges, The Texts I Have Send Her Prove I Showed People And That There Was A Video, What Charges Can She Press On Me Or Can She Not At All? Need Help Asap
it depends on where you are, how old you and she were at the time..
the circumstances.. ( drugs/alcohol.. obviously voluntary by both parties .. did you edit the recording her house or someplace where she expected privacy.. did she specifically ask about anyone finding out.. )
how badly her reputation is damaged, does she still get hassled, and is she changing school / jobs / moving away.. phych help?
You can be charged with all kinds of stuff, but it depends on the jurisidiction, everyplace has some different laws
-- violation of privacy, violation of federal wiretapping
-- sexual offense / lifetime registration as a sex offender
-- statutory rape, sexual assault (just talking or touching can be assault) - the act of sex may not be the crime..
-- unlawful gains did you profit, either in reputation or with tangible 'stuff' when you showed this; did she lose reputation or 'stuff'
-- besmirched reputation / slander - why did you show it, even truth can be a crime if shared for malicious reasons
-- loss of future cohabitation/income .. her social background; was she in an arranged marraige that is now ruined, has her church (or equivalent) made her an outcast,.. does this movie make her less likely to be employed or less likely to marry the man of her intent?
like I said - every place has different laws and variations. If you are in a really strict community, (or if she sues you from a really strict place) .. and if she can get a really good lawyer.. they can charge you with anything except the Lindbergh kidnapping. (old-time reference)
-- teens are getting branded a lifetime sex offenders for just 'sexting'.
- that guy in NJ/Rutgers University taped his room mate having sex. The room mate later committed suicide. The guy who taped it already got expelled from school ( means all student loan money was wasted- still needs to be repaid) , did a month in jail (20 days + good behavior) ; but the criminal prosecutor is still trying to get more charges, and the family wants to sue for wrongful death.
If you have already been contacted by police or legal officials, then don't delete or destroy anything. that can be considered 'spoilation'. If you intentionally destroy evidence you know the authorities ( police, court, any legal official) wants, then the other person can say anything they want and you can't prove you didn't do even worse things. Plus you get more charges for destroying evidence. If nobody from the court/police has spoken to you, it may not be a concern.
If nothing else, you should apologize - genuinely, and do what you can to put a stop to all the gossip and sharing of files/ texts for good.
Remember that 'deleted' files can usually be recovered if enough smarts / resources are spent trying to recover them. Nothing is 100% non-recoverable.. just really-really hard to recover.
Get a lawyer if you haven't already done so, but don't make a big public deal out of it. Once the news hears what you have done, you will be branded as a horrible person.

What Forms Does The Superior Court Clerk Commonly Provide? For Family Law?
Summons? Sheriff'S Entry Of Service? Verification? Acknowledgement Of Service?
Trying To Find Out Which Forms I Need To Bring To The Clerk To File An Entire Petition For Legitimation. I'M In Georgia, But Anything You Know Will Be Appreciated
You will have to ask the clerk's office, read the rules of court, and/or find a manual for filing legitimation petitions in your local library or legal library, if it is open to the public. You can ask a lawyer, of course, but I assume you can't afford one.
There is a form that must be filed with any pleading filed in Superior Court, which you can find at the link below. No other forms appear to be available online. In most courts, the clerk provides you with the summons when the case is filed. Be sure to keep copies of all documents before you file. You will receive a docket number on the summons, and that must be placed on all other documents. The summons will probably have a section for the rest of the service-related information, which are alternative ways to serve the defendant/respondent, except for the verification.
What Is A Better Profession Physiatrist Or Lawyer?
Half of people that go to law school cannot find a job as an attorney. Medical pays better and has much more job security. The legal profession is tanking, and only gets worse. Here are a couple links to give you the true story:

Lawyer To Get Child Support Or Through State Agency (Il)?
My Brother Is Screwing Over The Mother Of His Children. She Is A Nurse And Makes Okay Money But Not Enough To Provide For Them Without Support. She Is Currently Making Payments To A Lawyer, But I Wonder If It Wouldn'T Be Cheaper For Her To Go Through Il State Agency And Fill Out The Apps Through Them. Is There A Benefit To Going Through A Lawyer - Can He/She Maybe Get A Larger Child Support Amount? I Really Want To Help Her Out, As She Is Going To Lose Her House Without The Money.
"Lawyer to get child support or through state agency (IL)? My brother is screwing over the mother of his children. She is a nurse and makes okay money but not enough to provide for them without support. She is currently making payments to a lawyer, but I wonder if it wouldn't be cheaper for her to go through IL state agency and fill out the apps through them. Is there a benefit to going through a lawyer - can he/she maybe get a larger child support amount? I really want to help her out, as she is going to lose her house without the money."
There is no quick answer to your question-- but if you don't want to read the details I provide below, I'd go with the Child Support Enforcement division of your local State's Attorney.
The amount of child support a non-custodial parent pays in Illinois is decided by one of two methods under 750 ILCS 5/505. The first-- and most common -- is a statutory minimum percentage of a net income of the non-custodial parent. Basically, for one child a non-custodial parent pays 20% of a net income (for two it's 28%, etc.)-- which is gross pay (of all income from all sources) minus the following: federal and state income taxes, FICA, prior support obligations, certain medical insurance premiums, union dues, and other less common required retirement account payments and expenditures for debt payments incurred for a business or means to make an income or for the custodial parent or the child(ren).
This calculation is pretty much straight math and will be used unless there are other circumstances that would make that amount of child support inappropriate (See 750 ILCS 5/505(a)(2))-- too little or too much. Usually, the statutory minimum is used.
If the non-custodial parent has a simple situation-- a wage laborer with a simple pay stub and none of those unusual expenses, then a monkey dressed in a crooked tie could go to court and get you the statutory minimum of support. Again, it's straight math. That's why letting the Child Support Enforcement folks handle it will probably be more cost effective than hiring an attorney.
If the situation is more complicated, the attorneys working for the Child Support Enforcement division might not work through the complexities and get as much support as could be had.
However, my experience with some general and family law practices in Illinois is that you'll pay an attorney far too much to make it worth it unless you're talking over a $3,000 yearly difference-- and you'll likely have a lot of headaches along the way with the attorney. (Expect to pay anywhere from $1,500 to $4,000 to settle the support issue.)
And I've watched attorneys agree to child support amounts that were below the statutory minimum-- because the attorneys didn't subpoena actual pay records, because the attorney didn't do the math and instead accepted the other side's calculations, and because the attorney had no idea about the actual facts in the case. While you might get lucky and find a good attorney who works quickly, you might not. At least with the Child Support Enforcement division, you aren't paying for shoddy services.
