Finding A Highly Skilled Lawyer Irrespective of what your legal needs are you will recognize that there are countless lawyers in your town that advertise which they focus on your form of case. This will make the whole process of finding one with significant amounts of experience somewhat of a challenge. However, if you follow the following it is possible to define your research on the right one in almost no time. The first task is to produce a list of the lawyers that are listed in your town specializing in your needs. While you are causeing this to be list you should only include those that you may have an effective vibe about based on their advertisement. After that you can narrow this list down by using a bit of time evaluating their webpage. There you must be able to find how many years they are practicing and some general specifics of their success rates. At this time your list needs to have shrunken further to people that you felt had professional websites along with an appropriate amount of experience. You should then make time to look up independent reviews of every attorney. Make sure you see the reviews instead of just counting on their overall rating. The information from the reviews will provide you with an idea of the direction they connect to their clientele and the time they invest into each case that they are taking care of. Finally, you should talk to no less than the final three lawyers who have the credentials you are looking for. This gives you time to truly evaluate how interested they may be in representing you and your case. It is important to follow every one of these steps to ensure that you hire a company that has the right amount of experience to obtain the best possible outcome.

What To Know When Picking A Personal Injury Lawyer ?

As I'M Pretty Clueless To All Of This Lawyer Business...Would Just Like More Advice If I Could Get It Please.
The most important thing you need to know is if the lawyer has experience with your type of case, and whether or not the lawyer has a good record of winning such cases. Ask for references you can talk to about the lawyer. And ask what the lawyer thinks your chances are of winning the case. And of course, keep in mind that you will have to pay the lawyer a good percentage of any settlement, so weight whether or not you think that is worth it. Sometimes a negotiated settlement really is the best thing. And a court case could take years.

How Much Will I Pay In Alimony?
Im Going Through A Divorce & Would Really Appreciate If Someone Who Has Experience With Alimony Can Give Me Some Insight. I'M Going Through A Divorce With My Soon To Be Ex Wife Back In November We Met For The Divorce And Were Given A Bunch Of Paperwork To Have Filled Out. Such As Legal Seperation Papers Which Have Been Notarized And On The Papers She Stated She Doesn'T Want Any Alimony But I Don'T Trust Her And I Want To Be Prepared. Were Meeting In 2 Weeks To Finalize Everything And Get Divorced. My First Question Is.. Is It Too Late For Her To Change Her Mind About The Alimony Since She Signed The Papers? Also, If I Do Get Stuck Paying Alimony What'S The Maximum I Can Pay? I Work About 40 Hrs Per Week And Make 14 An Hr And I Also Pay 122 Dollars A Week In Child Support Which Goes Directly To The State Bc She Is On Welfare. She Collects 680 Per Month In Welfare And Recieves 1,000 Dollars Or More A Month In Foodstamps And Wic Bc She Has 5 Children...3 Are Mine. She Also Pays Only 180 A Month In Rent Including Utilities Bc She Lives In Housing. I Pay 650 A Month For Rent Not Including Utilities. If I Have To Pay Will They Take Mine And Her Bills Into Consideration? I Kno Alimony Goes By State...I Live In Mass...By Her Age She'S 24..And Her Ability To Work...She Has No Disabilties. What Is The Max I Can Pay? Can They Make It Unaffordable For Me To Live? About How Long Will They Make Me Pay? Forever Or For A Few Years. We'Ve Been Married 6 1/2 Yrs And Haven'T Lived Together In At Least 2 Yrs. So Basically Can They Force Me To Take Home A 200 Dollar Paycheck Where I Won'T Be Able To Afford My Bills? Will She Have To Fight For It With A Lawyer Cus I Kno She Can'T Afford It
The calculations and rules specific to alimony vary from state to state. This should be a question you can ask your attorney if you already have one. If not, I would suggest that you hire an attorney to at least help you strategize and learn what you should do.
Generally speaking, she can ask for alimony at any point in time. In some states, it is expected. That being said, each state is set up a little differently. Some states require a 10 year married period, others have a minimum number of years that a couple must have been married before the wife can get alimony. Again, it varies from state to state.
Generally speaking, they take your income, assets, debts and ability to earn income together and balance it against her income, assets, debts and ability to earn income. If you both are about equal then you may not be required to pay. If she makes more then in some states that means she might have to pay, but this is not the norm.
You might want to spend some time looking through DadsDivorce.com as they have numerous articles, videos and Ask a Lawyer topics in relation to alimony and divorce. They also have a state by state summary page of the laws that you might want to find your state and see what is listed there about alimony. I provided the link for you below in the sources - it is the second link. There is also a forum section where you can discuss this and any other divorce related topics to the guys there who have experienced divorces themselves. They might be able to offer you some great insights as well.
Custody Problems? Legal Rights?
My Fiance Has A 4 Year Old Son To His Ex Girlfriend, Who Is A B*Tch To Be Quite Honest. She Is Constantly Starting Problems, Saying Rude Things And Will Sometimes Even Threaten That He Will Not See His Son Anymore. When She Says These Annoying Things I Can'T Help But Get Angry, And I Sometimes Want To Get Very Defensive. I Even Sometimes Get Angry With Him Because He Just Ignores Her, He Says Absolutely Nothing Back To Her Because He Thinks If He Fights Back, She Will Refuse To Let His Son Come Over.
In The Past, My Fiance Had A Little Bit Of A Reputation. He Got Into Trouble A Lot, Mostly Minor Stuff But He Did Get Arrested One Time For Getting Into A Physical Fight, The Charges Were Dropped.
We Have Discussed Multiple Times About Him Taking Her To Court To Get Legal Joint Custody So That She Can'T Just Decide When She Lets Their Son See His Father. He Pays Child Support Every Week, But He Is Convinced That Because Of His Past He Will Not Get Any Legal Rights, And He'S Actually Afraid That If He Does Take Her To Court, And They Deny Him, That She Will Seriously Keep His Son Away.
I'M Not Really Sure What To Do Here. Any Opinons Or Suggestions?
Wow, I could have written this 5 years ago! My, now husband, was told for years that with his criminal record he wouldn't even get visitation with his son, so he should shut up, pay what the mom says to pay,a nd jump through the 400 hoops she says to jump through! It was heartbreaking to see this man I loved bent over a barrel every other week and to just give into her demands. he told me the same things, she feeds the kids, clothes the kid doesn't beat him I have no shot...it finally got SO absurd I told him he either filed for custody or I couldn't stay with him.
He filed for primary custody, and he got it! Then 3 years later we put the mom on sueprvised visits, and now we are seeking to terminate her rights and have me adopt the child. Now granted this mom is a looney bin, so while yeah she feeds her kids she barely disciplines them and they have behavior problems because of it!
The best time to try to get concrete custody is around 4-5, when they are going into school. Then you have the school to back you up that she is a fruit cake! By the way, my husband wasn't in a little bit of trouble, he was in a LOT of trouble! Meth charges, weapons, forgery, and the night he tried to evade the police he even hit the mother of my step son...the court didn't care, he served his time for that, was not on drugs any more, had a job, had a wife, had a stable life! THAT is what the courts cared about from him....and from the mother, they were pretty pissed that she used the child in a threatening way...REALLY pissed!
He needs to file for joint custody, HIM being primary. Get a Guardian ad Litem assigned to your case to really investigate it. And I am telling you that feeling when the papers are signed and you know it is YOUR weekend and you don't have to jump through hoops, or give her extra money, or listen to her mouth...man it is the BEST feeling on the planet!
Help!Baby Mama Situation Need Legal Advice?
Ok So This Is For My Soon To Be Husband. About A Year And A Half Ago He Had A Child With His Ex. ( There Was No Fighting More Then Raising A Voice In This Releationship) Everything Was Was Great Until One Day When The Child Was 2 Months Old. They Had Just Got Done Shopping At The Mall As A Family And As My Bf Was Taking Stuff Into The House Expecting His Babies Mama To Be Getting His Daughter And Being Right Behind Him.. He Turned Around To Seeing Her Get Into The Drivers Seat And Driving Off. This Was The Last Time He Saw His Daughter. He Thought She Must Have Forgot Something But When She Didnt Return He Called Her Parents To Find Out She Went There. Might I Also Add She Never Worked The Whole 3 Years They Were Together. About A Month Before Their Kid Was Born He Lost His Job Due To Poor Economy. But Was Looking Everyday For A New One And Bills Were Paid. When He Talked To Her On The Phone She Said She Needed A Few Days To Think And He Said He Drove To Her Parents For Them To Talk And Left On A Good Note. When He Got Back To His House He Found Her Dad In His House Taking His Babies Crib And Her Belonging. He Then Said 2 Weeks Later He Went To Her Parents House And Asked To See His Daughter. She Wouldnt Allow Him And Called The Cops Saying He Was Trying To Break In Which Was A Lie. Then A Few Days Later He Came Home To Relize She Had Broke In His House And Stole All Of The Pictures Of His Daughter And Had Put A Restraining Order On Him Saying He Abused He And That She Was Afraid For Her Life And A Bunch Of Lies. He Missed His Daughters First Xmas And Birthday. She Hit Him Up With Child Support Which He Is Back On 3000 But The Reason For That Is Because She Lived In A Very Small Town And Her Family Is Well Known There And Is Family Friends With The Judge, He Has Tried To Get A Lawyer But There Is Only 3 In The Area And None Will Represent Him Because They Are Either Related Or Friends With The Family. This Is Why It Has Been Son Long. He Is So Depressed And Feels Like There Is No Hope. How Can I Help Him? I Need To Find A Way To Get His Daughter Back Before It Is To Late. This Is In West Plains Mo.. Any Legal Help Would Be Amazing. And Also He Is On Probation Because He Tried To Call Once And She Called The Cops Saying He Broke His Restraining Order But He Didnt Leave A Message Or Even Get Ahold Of Anyone But When He Went To Court And Told The Judge That She Hit Him With 2 Years Probation. Please Help!!
He needs a Missouri lawyer to file for a change of venue. The restraining orders are a common tactic and very easy to get as David Letterman learned, costing him thousands to defend.
The restraining order is going to be a problem, but you should know it's legal to record any conversation he has with anyone in Missouri.
I'm in the Kansas City area and have dealt with Missouri laws. First he needs join Dads House in Yahoo Groups. There's no cost and the membership manual was developed here.
I can refer to a local attorney to talk to. I just spoke with him and he was in West Plains this week. So, get on Dads House and contact me. You can find me on FaceBook. I'm the old fart with the beard.
