I Live In California Is It Possible To Receive Legal Aid For A Divorce? Who Do I Contact.?
I Am Getting A Divorce In Jan And Was Wondering If I Can Get Legal Aid For A Divorce???? I Live In Californai And Who Do I Call?
Yes, you can get legal aid for a divorce in California if you qualify (that is, if your income is low enough to meet the legal aid agency's guidelines) AND if your divorce is in a county served by a legal aid agency that takes divorce cases. Many do not, but some do. For example, if you're in Los Angeles County, try the Harriet Buhai Center for Family Law (first source below); if you're in Santa Clara County, try the Pro Bono Project (second source below).
The third source below is a list of all legal aid and lawyer referral services in California; this is where I found the two examples. Near the top of the page are statewide resources; click the Free Legal Help link for LawHelp California's searchable list by county and case type. Or scroll down the page and look for your county, then look for links to legal aid organizations in that county; the link will take you to the organization's website, where you can see what kinds of cases they handle and get their contact information.
What Is A Civil Lawyer?
What Is A Civil Lawyer, Job Description, Salary?
There are two types of law, criminal and civil. Criminal law as you know is handled by the district attorney's office and involve crimes that violate state laws (murder, robbery, etc.). Civil laws are duties which one person has to another. A duty is something that a reasonable person would do. For example, a reasonable person who enters into a contract with another would carry out the terms of that contract; if they do not carry out the terms that they agreed to then they can be sued in civil court.
A civil attorney then may handle a wide variety of cases from family law (divorces, adoptions, crimes involving juveniles); contract law, maritime law, bankruptcies, etc. The best way to think about civil law is if someone is injured by another but that person is not criminally responsible, it is a way to make that person injured whole again. The only way the courts can do that is by awarding the person injured money for medical expenses and other injuries.
Attorneys will sign petitions (complaints) starting the lawsuit. They will conduct depositions (interviews under oath), send out interrogatories (multiple choice questions), subpoena witnesses, and question witnesses at trial. Attorneys will also represent clients at an appeal court by filing petitions and argue in front of the appeal courts. When a judgment is rendered, the attorney will take their share of the winnings and distribute the rest to the client based off of the hiring agreement.
Attorneys who work in civil law can have a wide range when speaking of salaries. This can be for several reasons. The size of the law firm and that nature of the cases you work on may determine who much you make a year. Large law firms, an attorney will have a set salary but will most likely earn a bonus at the end of the year depending on the amount of funds that person brought into the law firm.
Hope this helps.
How Do Physicians Feel About Malpractice Attorneys?
That They Are The Lowest Forms Of Life?
Probably. Malpractice attorneys say that they are aiding patient advocacy and protecting the patient, and maybe that can be true, but in the end they truly undermine the patient-doctor relationship and trust. Now doctors are more tentative about helping people in great risk, especially surgeons. If something happens to the patient, they always have to be prepared to defend the level and quality of care that they gave, as well as life-or-death decisions. Could you imagine being in a doctor's shoes--they've already got enough to worry about. I think malpractice attorneys probably do more harm to the quality of medical care than help it. Ultimate irony right there.
I heard a medical student joke once "What's the difference between a possum and a lawyer on a highway? There are skidmarks in front of the possum." haha...WOW.
What Law Changed Involving Legal Aid Representation?
I'M Wondering What Law It Was That Changed And Made It To Where Legal Aid Can Not Represent In A Divorce And Custody Case. I'M In Arkansas! Thanks!
It's not a question of a change in the law, but a change in financing. Legal Aid is primarily financed by federal dollars & private donations. As those become scarcer, Legal Aids around the country have to triage their services. Most will now only handle certain types of cases. For instance, many will prepare paperwork for non-contested divorces, but will not handle those which are contested.
Joint Custody...Any Avice On It?
My Ex And I Split Up And He Went An Filed For Full Physical Custody Of Our 6 Month Old. We Finally Sat Down And Talked. He Wants To Do Joint Custody. Im Not Sure If I Should Or Not. And Dont Know Much About It. I Jus Dont Want My Son Goin Back And Forth A Lot Cuz It'Ll Be Hard On Him. He'S Only 6 Months Old. Should I Go Ahead An Do Joint Custody Or Fight For Full Physical Custody. I Need Advice.
A joint custody arrangement usually requires both parents to really be willing to work together as partners, even though they are seperated. If your ex is hard to get along with or controlling and manipulative, he may be going for full custody because he still wants to be able to control you through your child. If your relationship is volitile and difficult, joint custody is usually discouraged, as this requires you to have frequent contact. And this increases the odds that you will have episodes of violence or temper in front of your child. You both have to be willing to really work together, without competing or fighting, for the good of your child.
The typical joint custody arrangement usually includes equal parenting time, with times agreed upon by both of you. It is also possible to give one parent full physical custody and both have joint legal custody, which simply means that the child lives with one parent most of the time, but both parents have an equal say in the child's upbringing and in making important decisions like education, medical care, ect.
If you have any history of abuse in your relationship: verbal, emotional, financial please make sure you document that for the court. If you're at all concerned about your safety or your child's welfare while in the care of your ex, make sure you communicate these to the court as well. If you suspect that your ex is only motivated to seek full custody in order to control you or hurt you, communicate this as well. Thankfully, courts today are becoming more aware of issues relating to domestic violence and are more ready to protect women and children from further abuse.
If you are clear, non emotional and make all your points to the court, you are likely to get a full custody order, as well as child support. Also, if you suspect that your ex is trying to avoid paying you support, and is seeking custody because of this, communicate this to the court as well. It is possible to petition and fight your own custody battle, if you keep your head. Go online and look up your state's statutes and read the law. Knowledge is power!
Take good care and feel free to message me if you have any further questions.
