Hi I Need Some Help With This Subject, Its My First Week And Im Already Not Going So Well
Can Someone Please Tell Me The Difference Between Common Law Courts And Courts Of Equity?
Also The Difference Between Common Law And Statute Law
Thanks In Advance!
In Medieval England, the common law courts could handle only certain types of cases. People whose cases were not accepted by the common law courts had no legal remedy. Gradually, the kings realized that this was not right and authorized a high official, the lord chancellor, to establish courts of equity to handle cases which were not covered by the common law. These cases included actions for specific performance, rather than money damages, and cases involving what we would call trusts, for example.
The reason that this distinction is important today in the US and some other common law nations is that there is a right to a jury trial in actions at common law, but not in suits in equity since in Medieval England there was a right to a jury in common law courts, but not in courts of equity (chancery courts).
Common law is judge-made law which developed over the centuries in England starting in the Middle Ages. Statutory law is law which is made by legislatures, the usual way to make new laws in the US today.
However, the Common Law of England is still the basic law of many, if not most US states today. In some states the fundamental law is the Common Law of England in the year that the state was admitted to the Union as a new state and it is necessary for lawyers to research nineteenth century English Common Law in order to write a brief as to whether or not a case may be tried before a jury or must be tried before a judge only.
Disabled, Divorcing, Can I Ask For Alimony?
My Husband And I Have Been Together For 14 Years. 13 Of Which Married. His Children, From Two Previous Marriages, Have Made Life Hard For Me. But Long Story Short, He Claims That His Poor Relationship With His Children Is My Fault. Regardless Of Facts And All I Have Been Through I Want To Know If I Can Get Alimony. I Have Been Fully Disabled Since 2004. Although I Am Grateful For My Disability Money It Just Won'T Be Enough To Live On. I Get $800 A Month. He Only Pays $78 Per Week Child Support, Which Is Based On What He Used To Make A Few Years Back. Now He Makes Roughly $11 An Hour And Works 12 Hours A Day 5 Days A Week. It Has Been Like That For The Last Two Years.
He Also Ran Up The Bill On One Of My Credit Cards, Not All By Himself, But I Can Prove That What Was Spent For Him. I Only Owe $1000, But Am Not Sure I Can Pay It Off Without Him.
Is It Reasonable For Me To Ask For Alimony?
Vehicle Insurance (Old Beat Up Van, He Has New Car) $75
Medications $50-75 (Often More)
Dr. Co Pay $40 A Month More Of Less Depending.
I Would Have No Money To Live On. Is It Reasonable, Or Could I Even Expect, To Get Alimony?
I Can'T Even Afford An Attorney, So I Don'T Even Know How That Will Go Down?
Alimony is get back on your feet money to keep you in the same standard of living & it's completely reasonable whether you get disability or not, that doesn't cancel out his obligations.
Child support payments need to be adjusted as well, according to his new pay scale & not the old one.

Get an attorney. For your own protection, get an attorney.
THE best way to find a lawyer is by word of mouth. Ask your: family, friends, coworkers, anyone you might know in the same situation, etc.
Call your local (usually county) bar association. Ask for names of attorneys that handle your type of matter.
(>>>>>If money is a BIG problem, you could also ask for the phone number of your local LegalAid office. - the attorneys at LegalAid are "real" attorneys.)
When you call the law office(s), insist on speaking with the Lawyer. Just tell the Secretary the main idea of your matter - do not tell all the little details of your matter to the Secretary - save the details for the Attorney. When you get the Lawyer on the phone line, ask him/her:
- Do they give >>>FREE, initial consultations for the FIRST meeting? (most do, but not all - you have to ask, don't assume)
- How much do they charge (per hour)?
- Could you make payments on your account?
- Can they help you? OR Refer you to someone who can help you?
(This is based on my knowledge, information, belief, and life experiences. This was intended as personal opinion, and not intended to be used as legal advice. Seeking advice over the Internet is NOT a good idea - the field of Law is too complex for that. Please be careful and do your research.)
Must All Wills Go Through Probate Court?
I Thought This Was The Whole Idea Of A Will In The First Place, To Make Everything Plain And Simple, And So Everyone Will Know What Goes To Who. I Understand If There Is A Dispute, But If Everyone Is In Agreement With The Will, Why Have To Go Through This? A Will Is A Legal Document, That Is The Point.
Wills to not transfer legal title to property. Only court orders can do so. The will simply tells the court what the deceased's wishes were. Not all wills must be probated. If there are no assets or minimal personal property & everyone agrees to disposition things can often be taken care of without a will. Many states have abbreviated procedures for small estates. But if there is real estate; claims against the estate; possible taxes due; minor beneficiaries; charitable bequests, & the like, you have to go thru the court.

Child Support Adjustments
You need to know that the child support guidelines are not set in stone. They are just guidelines. You can make a case for not paying so much.
1988 Public Law Record
SEC. 103. STATE GUIDELINES FOR CHILD SUPPORT AWARD AMOUNTS.
(A)(a) GUIDELINES TO CREATE REBUTTABLE PRESUMPTION.-Section 467(b)
of the Social Security Act is amended-
(1) by inserting (1) after (b):
(2) by striking, "but need not be binding upon such judges or other officials;" and
(3) by adding at the end the following new paragraph:
(4) "There shall be a REBUTTABLE presumption, in any judicial or administrative proceeding for the award of child support, that the amount of the award which would result from the application of such guidelines is the correct amount of child support to be awarded. A written finding or specific finding on the record that the application of the guidelines would be unjust or inappropriate in a particular case, as determined under criteria established the State, shall be sufficient to rebut the presumption is that case."
You need to file a motion to modify your child support. If you are current in your support, you can do this by making an official request for a modification at the child support enforcement office under the provisions of Public Law 12.
If there are arrears, contact the Clerk of the Court and request forms for filing for a modification, Pro Se.
You will need to get a copy of the child support guidelines and worksheet from child support enforcement to determine if you have cause for a reduction. There needs to be at least a 20% difference in his payment.
NEVER pay your child support directly to the mother as it can be considered a gift and not support. Always pay threw the court.
