Any Family Court Attorneys Out There Willing To Go Pro Bono?
I'M An Illegal Immigrant ,.Recently Divorced With Two Kids. I Couldnt Afford An Attorney,..Because I Didnt Contest The Divorce,..The Judge Said I Was In 'Default' And Awarded Her Sole Custody,..With Supervised Visitation,...And She Is Allowed Toleave The State With My Kids Whenever She Wants. I Have Been Demanded To Pay Child Support Of $ 1,040 A Month And Have Been Currently Unemployed For Almost Two Years Due To My Illegal Immigration Status. I Earnt Great Money One Year And The Judge Based My Support From That.I Dont Have That Job Anymore Because Of My Status.I Was Additionally Dragged Into Criminal Court For Domestic Abuse.That Was A Ploy To Get Custody And Was Thrown Out.,...I Cannot See My Children,..Have Arranged With The Ex Several Times,..But At The Last Minute She Backs Out. I Originally Defaulted In My Supervised Visitation,..Because After Several Attempts To Call,..All I Got Was An Answering Machine,...The Judge Frowned Upon That And Gave Supervised Visitation Again,Advice?
First of all why do you have supervised visitation? You need to contact a father's rights group to help you out. Family court is like going back to the stone age. Go to legal aid services. Even if your not legally in this country they will help you do to no income. Why don't you get a landscaping or farm workers job? Even a busboy or kitchen help in a restaurant that will pay under the table? The courts always see that the woman are supposed to be the better parent. In actuality that both parents should be constant in a childs life. There have been studies done that prove this. Philadelphia Department of Human Services did their own study concerning how children react when fathers are forbidden to see the children. Also it focused on when fathers who see their child on a regular basis and is thrown into jail for not paying child support.
What the courts did along with your wife is called legal kidnapping of your children. You should refile custody in the courts and get a new hearing in order for you to get visitation or partial custody. Also, your wife can not leave the state with your children without your permission if she flies. She can not leave the country without your permission. It is kidnapping and you can report it. This past year the state of PA passed a law that if a person files a false PFA and it is found out that it is false that person will do no less than 6 months in jail for perjury. Family court is the most abused court system in the country. Fathers have no rights at all. Our basic right is thrown out. Judges won't change the sytem. Lawyers are too afraid or worried if they try to fight the system that they won't make their money. Lawyers are the problem to the system. Judges that were lawyers are lawyers who couldn't make it as lawyers and now are screwing the system even more. As a divorced father of 2 children I am always being dragged into court for one thing or another. I do see my children every week on a regular basis.
Custody Vs. Guardianship?
My Ex Currently Has Physical Custody Of Boys, We Share Joint Legal. Kids Are 15 & 16. They Came For Summer Visit & Refused To Go Back To Dad. We Are Now Battling It Out In Court. I Didn'T Force Them To Go Back. Now Ex Says He Will Give Me 'Guardianship' Not 'Custody' Of The Boys. He Is In The Military & I Guess He Can Do This Under Some &Quot;Soldier Act' From 1939. What'S The Difference Between Having Legal Guardianship Or Legal Custody. Seem Like It Would Be The Same Thing. Anybody Know?
What state are you in? Each state defines custody and guardianship a little differently.
For example, the Illinois Probate Act defines "Guardian" as a legal representative of a minor.
The Juvenile Court Act contains perhaps the best and most comprehensive definitions:
(7) "Emancipated minor" means any minor 16 years of age or over who has been completely or partially emancipated under the "Emancipation of Mature Minors Act", ...
(8) "Guardianship of the person" of a minor means duty and authority to act in the best interests of the minor, subject to residual parental rights and responsibilities, to make important decisions in matters having a permanent effect on the life and development of the minor and to be concerned with his or her general welfare. It includes but is not necessarily limited to:
(a) the authority to consent to marriage, to enlistment in the armed forces of the United States, or to major medical, psychiatric, and surgical treatment; to represent the minor in legal actions; and to make other decisions of substantial legal significance concerning the minor;
(b) the authority and duty of reasonable visitation, except to the extent that these have been limited in the best interests of the minor by court order;
(c) the rights and responsibilities of legal custody except where legal custody has been vested in another person or agency; and
(d) the power to consent to the adoption of the minor, but only if expressly conferred on the guardian in accordance with Section 2-29, 3-30, or 4-27.
(9) "Legal custody" means the relationship created by an order of court in the best interests of the minor which imposes on the custodian the responsibility of physical possession of a minor and the duty to protect, train and discipline him and to provide him with food, shelter, education and ordinary medical care, except as these are limited by residual parental rights and responsibilities and the rights and responsibilities of the guardian of the person, if any.
In AZ, A guardianship can be filed when someone other than the parent wants to be appointed by the Court to take over parental responsibilities and neither living parent (whose parental rights have not been severed [terminated or cut off] by Court order) will file papers or go to Court to oppose the appointment. Guardians take over parental responsibilities for making decisions regarding housing, medical care, and education, among other things, for as long as the guardianship lasts. An order of guardianship is good until the Court changes or dismisses it, the child turns 18, or either parent files papers to terminate the guardianship. Guardianship is based on the parents' permission, or at least their failure to object to the guardianship. If either of the
parents later changes his or her mind and lets the Court know that he or she objects to the guardianship, the Court has no choice but to end the guardianship, but may refer the matter
for investigation as to whether a Dependency is needed.
How Much Should It Cost For An Attorney On A Felony Charge?
My Husband Has Been Charged With A Class D Felony For Voyeurism. I Want To Know If The Cost This Attorney Gave Us Is Fair.
Attorney's fees vary by experience, anticipated workload, whether the attorney is an individual or member of a firm, and where you live. There is no standard set of fees.

Do I Need To Hire A Lawyer For Immigrant Purposes(Canada)?
I Want To Immigrate To Canada, I Completely Know The Rules But Decided To Hire A Lawyer Because My First Language Is Not English Or French And I Don'T Want To Have Grammer Errors In My Application!!! Do U Recommend Hiring An Attorney? Do U Know A Good Attorney?
Any Comments Is Appreciated.
This is a link for some immigration lawyers in the Vancouver, BC, area. I couldn't tell you a good one from a bad one but the link gives some guidelines on how to pick a lawyer and also gives the names of some.
That said, I don't know if you would be wiser to pick a lawyer located in Canada or one who specializes in immigration to Canada but is situated in the country you are coming from.
First Time Offender Of Dui In Pa...Help!?
So This Past Weekend I Was Visiting Some Friends Out Of Town. We All Are 21 And Were Doing Some Drinking Throughout The Weekend. On Saturday I Stopped Drinking At 10Pm. Around 2 O'Clock My Ex Calls Me Saying She Was In Trouble And She Needed My Help. I Thought 4 Hrs Since My Last Beer I'M Fine.
So On The Way To Pick Her Up I Missed A Turn And Turned Into A Parking Lot There Were 4 Cops Standing There Nd Jumped In Front Of My Car And Told Me To Stop. Me And My Buddy Were In The Car. I Cooperated To The Fullest, While Being Tested For Dui, Breathalyzer (Which The Officer Didn'T Tell Me What I Blew) Follow Test, Line Test, And Stand On One Foot Test. Apparently I Failed When I Know I Did Everything Correctly. I Was Taken To Station And Got A Blood Test. I Got No Paperwork No Business Card, Nothing. All They Said Was They Would Call Me In 4 Weeks When Results Were In...What Should I Do? I Haven'T Had Anything Serious On My Record Besides A Speeding Ticket In 2 Years (Underage 4 Years Ago, And Disorderly Conduct 2 Years Ago) Freaking Out Please Someone Give Me Advise And Info On How To Go About This!!!
First time DUI is serious,.. but going to jail/being incarcerated is a VERY unlikely outcome. Typically the worst case scenario involves losing your license for a period of time - fines, sometimes mandatory alcohol education courses and this being on your record. (As DUI's are cumulative and each subsequent one results in stiffer punitive and monetary penalties) -- This is important as in many states the 3rd (and sometimes extended to 4th) DUI results in a Felony -- which is quite serious.
Though this is your FIRST, so try not to worry too much. The best thing you can do here is learn never to drive after drinking unless you are ABSOLUTELY positive enough time has passed to be under the legal limit. (Which is impossible to know unless you let 10-12 hours pass in most cases -- or you have a very accurate personal BAC monitor ).
Other than this -- start researching attorney's (lawyers) that handle DUI cases in your area. While you won't need one to stay out of jail on your first offense.. if you/ or your family can afford one it will give you your best chances at mitigating the charge against you. Sometimes you can get it plead down, or dismissed (best case). In other examples there are deferred entry of judgement (pre-trial diversionary programs) for cases like yours where you go through court ordered measures (classes, drug testing, and such) for a period of 6months or so (they all vary) and if you successfully complete the program you DUI charge is dismissed (despite otherwise having been guilty of the charge if you went before the judge/jury).
So try not to worry -- learn a lesson about driving,.. and start looking into attorney's (if you can afford it). Most will offer free consultation based on your case -- the first attorney you contact isn't always the one you should go with, plus the fee's they charge will vary as well. If you do end up going with an attorney don't just pick them based on the 'cheapest' --
You'll be fine,..
