Finding A Seasoned Lawyer No matter what your legal needs are you will recognize that there are countless lawyers in your town that advertise that they are experts in your form of case. This could make the process of finding one with a lot of experience somewhat of a challenge. However, when you follow the tips below you will be able to restrict your quest off to the right one out of very little time. The initial step is to produce a list of the lawyers which are listed in your town focusing on your circumstances. When you are making this list you need to only include those that you may have an effective vibe about depending on their advertisement. Then you can narrow this list down if you take a bit of time evaluating their webpage. There you will be able to find the number of years they are practicing and a few general information regarding their success rates. At this time your list must have shrunken further to individuals that you felt had professional websites along with an appropriate volume of experience. You must then take the time to search for independent reviews for each attorney. Make sure you browse the reviews instead of just relying on their overall rating. The data inside the reviews will give you a concept of the direction they interact with their clients and the length of time they invest into each case they are working on. Finally, you should talk with a minimum of the last three lawyers that have the credentials you are interested in. This will give you some time to truly evaluate how interested these are in representing both you and your case. It can be important to follow most of these steps to actually hire a company that has the correct amount of experience to help you get the perfect outcome.

Has Anyone Ever Used Prepaid Legal Services And If So How Does It Work And Are The Prices Resonable??? I Need Some Information Thank You
Prepaid legal services generally do not work for several reasons. The most important is that your situation will always be different than anyone elses. Maybe you need a will; but maybe you need a testamentary supplemental needs trust. The lawyer they send you to will give you a simple will because that's all your plan covers even though it's not right for you.
The second most important reason is that lawyers are specialists. Each concentrates in just a small area - estate planning, family law, Social Security representation, etc. Prepaid legal services send you to just one lawyer for all those things. There is no reason to think that lawyer really has expertise in the area you need.
Last is the paucity of lawyers. Even if you have a choice between a few attorneys, it will be a very few. You won't be able to find the person you trust and communicate well with. You'll have to use one lawyer even if you don't really like him. And, since you're not paying him very much, he probably won't really like you either.
If your union gives you some free legal help, start there for information. Otherwise, don't buy into a prepaid legal plan.

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.
Adopting My Grandson, Who Lives In Another State. I Need Legal Advise Can Anyone Help Me?
My Daughter Wants Me To Adopt Her Son, A Dna Test Showed That Her Boyfriend Is Not The Father. His Mother Has Been Awarded Temporay Custody Until Later This Month. My Exhusband Remarried And Petitioned The Court To Be A Foster Parent So He Would Have State Funding. My Daughter Wants Me To Adopt My Grandson Who Is Now 1 Year Old, And I Need Legal Counsel To Assist Me, I Dont Have Much Money. But Work Very Hard And I Want To Do This. 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

My Family Needs Serious Legal Help ?
My Sister Is Married To A Lunatic. He Is A Convicted Child Molester On Two Counts And He Is Slightly Off In The Head. Not Sure If It'S Mental Retardation But He Is Definitely Off. Two Years Ago He Beat The Hell Out Of My Mom Over Her Not Giving Them Money. She Was Broke And Said They Hadn'T Earned It. My Mom Is 60 Years Old With Osteo- Arthritis And Degenerative Disc Disease. It Took Her Months To Recover. When We Went To The Police To Have Him Arrested They Said My Sister An Her Husband Had Already Been There Stating She &Quot;Touched&Quot; Him First. My Parents Being The Loving And Forgiving And In My Opinion Naive People They Are Tried To Reconcile With My Sister And Her Husband Saying They Forgave Him For What He Did. Well In This Gesture Of Forgiveness They Had Thanksgiving Dinner With Them At Which Point He Had His Family Key My Moms New Car Causing Thousands Of Dollars In Damage. And Of Course The Police Did Nothing Again, And Of Course My Parents Forgave Them Again. Since Then E Has Continually Made Death Threats To My Parents Concerning Me Not Coming Around Or He Would Have His Friends Kill Me. Didn'T Seem Like A Big Deal Until My Dad Called Me Last Year After He Had Been Held Up At Gunpoint By My Sisters Husband For $200. I Had Him Arrested But Of Course My Parents Caved And Dropped The Charges. My Dad Called Me Tonight Saying That My Sister And Her Husband Had Been Kicked Out Of His Moms House Two Weeks Ago And So They Took Them In. He Has Made Numerous Threats To Them And Their Car Has Been Keyed Again Only This Time $5000 In Damage. He Called To Say That Her Husband Had Made A Blatant Threat On My Life Stating He Had A Friend In My City Who Was Watching Me. I Have No Idea Who To Call Or Turn To. The Police In Their Town Can'T Go On Hearsay Can They? Please Any Advice On Who To Call Or Turn To Will Help!
You want to blame the police and legal system when you know perfectly well that the police were not there when it happened, and therefore can do nothing without the cooperation of your parents.
No legal system can help any of you. Your parents aren't "loving and forgiving." They are enablers. They could benefit from some counseling.
Meanwhile, *you* can continue to live the rest of your life in this ridiculous cycle, or you can get a clue and some distance. Life's too short for this crap. Go have a happy one surrounded by nice people. You don't get to choose your relatives, but you do get to choose your own life.
