4 Methods To Help Your Lawyer Enable You To When you need a legal representative at all, you need to work closely with them in order to win your case. Regardless how competent they are, they're going to need your help. Listed below are four important methods to help your legal team assist you to win: 1. Be Totally Honest Or Higher Your lawyers need and expect your complete cooperation - irrespective of what information you're likely to reveal in their mind. Privilege means anything you say is saved in confidence, so don't hold anything back. Your legal team should know everything in advance - particularly information the other side could discover and surprise you with later. 2. Provide Meticulous Records Keep an ongoing 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 should help them to win. 3. Appear Early For Many Engagements Never be late when you're appearing before a court and prevent wasting the attorney's time, too, because they are on time, every time. Actually, because you might need to discuss very last minute details or be extra prepared for the case you're facing, it's a good idea to arrive early. 4. Demonstrate That You Have Your Act Together If you've been involved in any kind of crime, it's important so that you can convince a legal court that you just both regret the actions and they are making strides toward increasing your life. As an example, if you're facing a DUI, volunteer for the rehab program. Be sincere and included in the cities the judge is presiding over. Working more closely with your legal team increases your probability of absolute success. Follow these tips, listen closely to how you're advised and ultimately, you need to win your case.

How To Find A Good Custody Lawyer?
I'M Currently Trying To Find A Good Lawyer For A Future Non-Avoidable Custody Hearing. I Am In The Beginning Process Of Trying To Request Mediation For An Attempt To Have Visitation Rights From My Child'S Mother, And I Know I Will Eventually Have To Go To Court To Force Her To Follow The Mediation (If She Even Goes). I Hear Things About &Quot;Having A Good Lawyer&Quot;, But I Do Not Know How To Narrow The Search Down. I Have Been Told That You Can Not Exactly View How Many Cases They Have Won Or Lost, So I Am Trying To Not Overpay And End Up With Some Idiot Who Screws Me In Court. Can Anyone Help Out On This And Possibly Give Me Some Tips On How To Get The Ball Rolling On The Research Before I Go To War...Please? Also If You Have Any Helpful Tips On Do'S And Donts From Now Through All The Hearing And Children Services Stuff Any Info From Here On Can Help!
Well first off you really don't need to worry about the "attempt" to receive visitation rights to your child. That is, providing that you have nothing that poses as a risk to your child in your life. Something like drug use and abuse, alcoholism, and abuse are some things that can and generally will hurt a father or mothers chances at gaining some form of custody and visitation schedule.
I'm assuming that you weren't married to this girl (the mother) and that there is no current order regarding custody and visitation of the child. If that is the case, then your rights are as equal as the mothers. If an order exists, you simply petition the courts to modify the order regarding custody and visitation.
Mediation is really overrated. The mediators do nothing but keep you two from killing one another and asking you what you two think you can accomplish as far as agreeing to whatever. If you agree, the mediator types it up, the parties sign, go to court, judge asks is this cool, judge then makes it an order, and bye bye. If you don't agree, the mediator notes that the parties can't agree, parties go to court, if attorney's are present, attorney's b.s. a bit, get the party's together to try to mediate all over again, and if nothing happens it goes before the judge and the child makes their decision.
At times, if a court sees fit, they may appoint "child counsel" which is an attorney representing the child. This generally doesn't happen but it can. In most cases it happens in cases of neglect, etc.
Generally speaking, if your good to go and not a scum bag or anything, expect to get around a 30% time share. Alternating holidays with some additional time in the summer. Also keep in mind things change depending on the age of the child.
You don't really have to have a lawyer if you are willing to educate yourself. But if you feel shaky and can afford the roughly $10,000 that a good hard fought custody battle can lead to then so be it.
If you can do that, give me the 10 g's because that's what it really is like.
In other words, go hit up your book store and look for books on custody and divorce and things like that. I'd even look at parenting books regarding separate households. If your kid is old enough it really wouldn't hurt to get an idea how they feel. You'll need all the in site you can get over the years, trust me.
Don't be a wiener to the other parent, especially around the kid....EVER! They remember and it pisses them off later in life. No matter how much of a butthead the other parent wants to be, just be cool and when they go away go hit a speed bag or something. Always be there for the kid, don't miss any visits, ever, even if you gotta work, get a sitter yourself. Have your own clothing, bed stuff, and toys at your home. It makes it easier for the kid and more comfortable.
Court battles suck, so it's better to work it out.

How Do I Calculate Alimony Arrereages?
My Ex Husband Is Over $1,000 In Alimony Arreareges. Is There Intrest Owed On This And If So How Do I Caculate This.
Lawyers and family court have a matrix for alimony and if there are arrears - family court should go after your husband. To calculate this - this is dependent on his income and number of children he has to support. But first things first - you should tell a lawyer he isn't paying you properly for alimony.
How Are Shared Assets And Debts Split Up In Divorce Proceedings?
If My Parents Would Get Divorced Will They Have To Split All The
Credit Card Debt 50-50 Even If The Majority Of The Cards Are Only Under One Of Their Names?
It goes differently for every instance, so there is no one easy answer for this. I believe the rule of thumb is to split things up by a percentage of income. If your father works and your mom doesn't, they assets will swing more her way and the debts will swing his way. How things are distributed will also be determined by how long they were married. The longer they were married, the more the courts will decide that the woman is dependent on the husband for their standard of living, which means they will award her more in the for of assets, as well as alimony. Which ever one has the best attorney will get the nod their way also. It will also depend on the reason for the divorce, as well as who is the petitioner (the one that filed). The petitioner always has the upper hand because they are on the offensive. Their demands get submitted first and the respondent is them in the position of trying to get that changed.
Sorry there isn't a straight forward answer for this. 50/50 seems logical at first, but there are factors the courts will look at that will determine how these are distributed.
Need Help Regarding Felony Charges. Yes Again.?
2 Months Ago, My Former Friend'S Dad Got In An Accident, In Which He Was No Longer Able To Work. He Was No Longer To Pay The Bills And Was 2 Months Behind. I Was Nice, So I Loan My Friend 4000 Dollars. He Promised He Would Have Payed Me Once He Received His Income Return. 1 Month Ago, His Friend Told Me He Had Received His Income Return. Right After, I Tried To Get Ahold Of Him, But To No Avail. He Never Answered My Calls Or Was Never Home. At That Time, I Had Arranged To Pay A Deposit And First Months Rent Of An Apartment My Friends And I Were Getting. I Had 3 Days Left To Pay, But I Still Couldn'T Get Ahold Of Him. I Found Out One Day That He Told His Friend That He Was Never Going To Pay Me. This Is When My 4 Friends And I Decided To Break Into His House To At Least Get Some Stuff Of His. One Night, We Drove To His House. When We Got There, We Decided Not To Do It, So My Friend Just Threw 2 Rocks At The Windows. On The Way Out Of The Neighborhood, We Got Stopped.
Boy, I seem to be on a trail with your questions and you keep giving out more details so I have to clarify my answer again and again (this is my third response).
First if you didn’t make your friend sign any legal documents saying that he owed you money then the debt won’t be provable or considered by the court. Between friends a person’s word should be good enough, but I have found that when money is involved all bets are off.
What ever you wrote in your statement and confessed to will probably stick, you should have waited for a lawyer. Did anyone ask for a lawyer or did you just get frightened and wrote those statements. If you did then and didn’t ask for a lawyer first then those statements will hold in court and they will be very hard to break. A good lawyer can do it, but probably not a lawyer from the Public Defender’s Office. You would need to prove that the police were notified you wanted a lawyer and didn’t get you one, or that the confessions were coerced, forced out of you somehow; the mere threat of jail isn’t enough, you were in jail already. The threat of serving time in a prison isn’t strong enough either since you are considered innocent until proven guilty.
The charge of Organized Crime may not stick, unless any of you are members of a gang. You are friends and your relationship as friends is not a criminal one. A good lawyer can make that charge “go away.”
In your two earlier questions you implied that guns were involved, if there were no guns present then that is good, but if you had a screwdriver the prosecutor can call that a weapon similar to a knife. If the knife has tool marks on it that could seem to make it look like it was sharpened then this question of a weapon or not becomes more important.
Your statements are the key to the case and they will be your doom. What ever you wrote and signed in police custody will be what the final decision will hinge on. If no one in your group was a gang member then you can argue your way past the organized crime charge, but you confessed to the others so a trial is a mere formality. If you can’t break those confessions then you will go to jail on attempted burglary (breaking and entering) and burglary to attempt theft (attempted theft). If you confessed that the group of you planned on breaking in and robbing your former friend then that is a conspiracy, although not necessarily a criminal one. Still it will only increase the threat you posed and that will make the charges seem worse and the probably punishment even worse.
The fact that you were leaving doesn’t matter; the fact that you might have intended something else is also immaterial. You confessed, and what ever you wrote on that confession will stay, it will cause you to lose the case, and it will put you in jail.
You have two options. First find a very good lawyer (read that as expensive) who can break those confessions or plead guilty and try to come off as good boys who planned a crime, but realized that it was wrong and you couldn’t do it. You were wanted to repent for that act so you willingly confessed to the police. I doubt if anyone will believe that you were on your way to turn yourself in, but you could try and suggest that to you lawyer and see what he thinks. You may end up confessing your guilt and “throwing yourself on the mercy of the court.” But, don’t do that until after you talk with a lawyer, in fact don’t say anything until you contact a lawyer. Future communication with your friends can be traced and that can be used to say enforce the idea of a conspiracy, so don’t talk with them. Seek legal advice this minute, I mean right after you read this note.

You don't want to get legal advice over the Internet - THAT is NOT a good idea!!!!
Call your local (usually county) bar association. Ask for Lawyers that handle Family Law matters. ALSO, ask for the phone number for your local Legal Aid office.
When you call the law office(s), insist on speaking with the Attorney. Do NOT tell all the little details of your matter to the Secretary - save the details for the Lawyer. When you get the Attorney on the phone line, ask him/her:
- Do they have FREE, initial consultations?
- How much do they charge?
- Do they accept payments on their accounts?
- Can they help you? OR Refer you to someone who can help you?
