Lawyers: Do You Think A Layperson'S Giving Legal Advice On Ya Constitutes The Unauthorized Practice Of Law
And Bonus Round: When A Lawyer Weighs In With Legal Advice On Ya, Is An Attorney-Client Relationship Created? And Is The Attorney-Client Privilege Waived?
Anyone Else Find This A Little Worrisome? In California, The Unauthorized Practice Of Law Is Illegal (Cal. Business & Professions Code, Sec. 6125 & 6126). I'M Guessing It'S The Same In The Other 49 States.
My understanding of a legal contract, which is required to give legal advice, is that even as little as a dollar exchanged is hiring, and any advice after that is legal advice. Since no one on here asks for money/goods/services in exchange for their advice, then they aren't practicing law, they are participating in an open forum.
As far as attorney-client privilege goes, if there is more than just you and the attorney who can hear it (or see it), then there is no privilege. In some cases, it even applies to their legal staff, which is why support staff usually are only given the information that they need to research or prepare, they are not given the client's statements.
Help Please? Legal Advice?
I Am Nineteen Years Old. My Boyfriend Is Seventeen. He Will Be Eighteen In Six Months And I Will Be Twenty In A Month And A Half. I Live With Him, However, I Sleep In A Different Room. Is This Illegal?
First of all, it's legal to live together. However, if you're having sex, then no. You both have to be 18+.
An exception would be if you were 18 then you could have sex with a 17yo, or if you're still in high school.
You probably won't get into trouble, but you need to know the possibility is there. In 6 months when he's 18, you'll be perfectly legal.
Fathers Rights In Georgia?
In This ****** Up System That Georgia Has A Father Of A Child Thats Born Out Of Wedlock Automatically Goes To The Woman. The Father Has To Establish Paternity Rights And Then Go For Custody Or Visitation Which Are Two Different Cases. Not To Mention Child Support. My Question Is If I Cant Find Her And She Has Took Off With My Son, Can I File Kidnapping And Does She Have To Tell Me? Problem Is I Cant Find My Son To Support Him, Ya Know Bring Diapars And Food Etc..... Us Men Have It Hard Getting Kids
A father has to establish rights because there is always a chance that a man may turn out not to be the father. A woman's rights are automatic because there is no doubt who the mother of a child is. So up until the point your rights are established the mother is not legally required to tell you anything. Morally she probably should. Since she is the sole custodian it is not kidnapping. She is legally entitled to take her child wherever she chooses. If you want to have any say in the matter stop complaining and go file the papers necessary.
If you have so many concerns about the fitness of this woman's parenting skills maybe you should not have impregnated her. But what is done is done and if she is unable to care for your child these are concerns you need to have addressed legally. By petitioning the court to establish paternity.
How Would You Go About Finding A Lawyer To Advise On A Divorce?
How Expensive Are Lawyers? Are There Low Cost Lawyers? Do You Just Call Them Up And Ask To Meet With Them? Sorry, I Know These Sound Like Stupid, Basic Questions, But I Need To Know. . .
Yes, Lawyers are expensive. Depending on where you live you can get some divorce lawyers for $50/hour to $400/hour.
You pay for what you get. While a cheap lawyer may seem like a bargain, there are some who "pad" on top of their bills so that you end up paying more than you would if you went with a mid-card lawyer.
Most offer a half hour or fifteen minute free consultation. You can find a lawyer in a phonebook or through people that have gone through divorce.
You can get a para-legal to act as your lawyer but they do not have the same expertise as a lawyer. Legal Aid might be of some assistance if it is available in your area and based on your income.
The cheapest is filing court papers yourself as long as it is an uncontested divorce. There are books in your library that would help you on the process or your local courthouse would help you.
There is a lot of time and if the other person does not have a lawyer that means YOUR lawyer will have to do extra work which means YOU end up paying for it unless you get a judgment for court costs.
To All The Lawyers...?
I Need To Get A Dna Test Done On My Biological Father. I'M 23 And Live In California He Lives In Washington. I Need To Prove He Is My Father (He Left When I Was About 2 Years Old) Never Paid Child Support. (I Don'T Have Much Money To Pay For A Lawyer) My Birth Certificate Say Father Withheld. Also If You Know Of Any Lawyers Who'Ll Do This For Free Or Real Cheap.
I dont know how it works where you live...I live in Australia, but if I want legal advice...I can ring a legal firm and talk to a lawyer and it costs nothing. Sometimes if you read the adds in your local telephone directory it will say something like.."First Consultation Free". You do need legal advice and if you havent got much money then that is the best thing I can suggest. We have Legal Aid over here where lawyers represent low income earners and the Government pay for it. Maybe there is a scheme like that where you live. Its worth a couple of phonecalls to find out. I knew my father, but I can empathise with you about wanting your father to know who you are....It will give you a sense of belonging. I wish you luck.
What Intellectual Property Laws Could Apply To The Case Below?
Nicholas Invents, Develops, And Distributes A New Video Game. He Also Writes A &Quot;Cheat&Quot; Book That Is Available For Purchase By Each Person Who Buys One Of His Video Games. However, He Does Not Apply For Any Type Of Intellectual Property Protection. Morgan Corp Buys A Nicholas Video Game And &Quot;Cheat&Quot; Book, Analyzes It, And Produces A Clone Of Both Products.Nicholas Files Ssuit Against Morgan Corp., Alleging Violations Of Intellectual Property Laws.
Copyright is automatic, but must be registered (in the USA) prior to filing a lawsuit in federal court. The case will be dismissed unless Nicholas applies for and is granted a copyright certificate.
The software is copyrightable, the displays are copyrightable, the cheat book is copyrightable. Making a profit from copyrighted works without permission is a federal crime.
Other IP laws include "unfair competition" and there could be a claim that Morgan Corp has "stolen" the ideas for the game from Nicholas and misrepresented them as its own development.
Similarly, the Nicholas game probably has a distinctive "look and feel" that could be perceived as an indication of the source and quality of the game, thus becoming a de facto trademark (or trade dress) owned by Nicholas. Under the federal Lanham Act (and similar state laws), there would be a claim for trademark infringement, even without a trademark registration, if the game was "used in interstate commerce" with the distinctive look and feel attributable to Nicholas.
