4 Methods To Help Your Lawyer Enable You To When you want a legal professional for any reason, you must work closely using them to be able to win your case. Regardless how competent they may be, they're gonna need your help. Listed here are four important methods to help your legal team help you win: 1. Be Totally Honest Or Higher Your lawyers need and expect your complete cooperation - no matter what information you're planning to reveal for them. Privilege means everything you say is stored in confidence, so don't hold anything back. Your legal team must know all things in advance - most especially information one other side could learn about and surprise you with later. 2. Provide Meticulous Records Keep an ongoing and factual account of information regarding your case. Whether it's witnesses or payments being made, provide your attorneys because of the data they must assist them to win. 3. Appear Early For All Engagements Not be late when you're appearing before a court and steer clear of wasting the attorney's time, too, when you are on time, each time. In reality, because you may have to discuss last second details or perhaps be extra prepared for the way it is you're facing, it's a smart idea to arrive early. 4. Demonstrate That You Have Your Act Together If you've been charged with any kind of crime, it's important to be able to convince the court that you simply both regret the actions and therefore are making strides toward improving your life. As an example, if you're facing driving under the influence, volunteer for any rehab program. Be sincere and included in the community the judge is presiding over. Working more closely along with your legal team increases your probability of absolute success. Try these tips, listen closely to how you're advised and ultimately, you need to win your case.

Legal Information, I Need Help?
I Had Sex With A Girl And Recorded It Without Her Knowing And I Showed My Friends And Then Deleted It, She Found Out I Showed People And Now She Wants To Press Charges, The Texts I Have Send Her Prove I Showed People And That There Was A Video, What Charges Can She Press On Me Or Can She Not At All? Need Help Asap
it depends on where you are, how old you and she were at the time..
the circumstances.. ( drugs/alcohol.. obviously voluntary by both parties .. did you edit the recording her house or someplace where she expected privacy.. did she specifically ask about anyone finding out.. )
how badly her reputation is damaged, does she still get hassled, and is she changing school / jobs / moving away.. phych help?
You can be charged with all kinds of stuff, but it depends on the jurisidiction, everyplace has some different laws
-- violation of privacy, violation of federal wiretapping
-- sexual offense / lifetime registration as a sex offender
-- statutory rape, sexual assault (just talking or touching can be assault) - the act of sex may not be the crime..
-- unlawful gains did you profit, either in reputation or with tangible 'stuff' when you showed this; did she lose reputation or 'stuff'
-- besmirched reputation / slander - why did you show it, even truth can be a crime if shared for malicious reasons
-- loss of future cohabitation/income .. her social background; was she in an arranged marraige that is now ruined, has her church (or equivalent) made her an outcast,.. does this movie make her less likely to be employed or less likely to marry the man of her intent?
like I said - every place has different laws and variations. If you are in a really strict community, (or if she sues you from a really strict place) .. and if she can get a really good lawyer.. they can charge you with anything except the Lindbergh kidnapping. (old-time reference)
-- teens are getting branded a lifetime sex offenders for just 'sexting'.
- that guy in NJ/Rutgers University taped his room mate having sex. The room mate later committed suicide. The guy who taped it already got expelled from school ( means all student loan money was wasted- still needs to be repaid) , did a month in jail (20 days + good behavior) ; but the criminal prosecutor is still trying to get more charges, and the family wants to sue for wrongful death.
If you have already been contacted by police or legal officials, then don't delete or destroy anything. that can be considered 'spoilation'. If you intentionally destroy evidence you know the authorities ( police, court, any legal official) wants, then the other person can say anything they want and you can't prove you didn't do even worse things. Plus you get more charges for destroying evidence. If nobody from the court/police has spoken to you, it may not be a concern.
If nothing else, you should apologize - genuinely, and do what you can to put a stop to all the gossip and sharing of files/ texts for good.
Remember that 'deleted' files can usually be recovered if enough smarts / resources are spent trying to recover them. Nothing is 100% non-recoverable.. just really-really hard to recover.
Get a lawyer if you haven't already done so, but don't make a big public deal out of it. Once the news hears what you have done, you will be branded as a horrible person.
(I'm not sure - but I'm not judging you )
What Forms Does The Superior Court Clerk Commonly Provide? For Family Law?
Summons? Sheriff'S Entry Of Service? Verification? Acknowledgement Of Service?
Trying To Find Out Which Forms I Need To Bring To The Clerk To File An Entire Petition For Legitimation. I'M In Georgia, But Anything You Know Will Be Appreciated
You will have to ask the clerk's office, read the rules of court, and/or find a manual for filing legitimation petitions in your local library or legal library, if it is open to the public. You can ask a lawyer, of course, but I assume you can't afford one.
There is a form that must be filed with any pleading filed in Superior Court, which you can find at the link below. No other forms appear to be available online. In most courts, the clerk provides you with the summons when the case is filed. Be sure to keep copies of all documents before you file. You will receive a docket number on the summons, and that must be placed on all other documents. The summons will probably have a section for the rest of the service-related information, which are alternative ways to serve the defendant/respondent, except for the verification.
Will Attorney Keep Entire Retainer?
If I Have Given An Attorney A $2000 Retainer For The First 10 Hours Of Work, And Our Case Was Settled Within 5 Hours Of His Time, Will He Keep The Remainder Of The Retainer? Our Case Was Settled In Mediation And Did Not Require Much Of The Attorney'S Time.
If he's nice, he will give half of it back.

Son, you need to go to your C.O. and get a referral to a military attorney ASAP. Your wife needs to be requested by a family court to undergo a fitness evaluation. She could be suffering from untreated postpartum depression, or had her prior mental condition aggravated by the pregnancy and hormonal changes. ANYONE who states that they are suicidal should be confined to a psychiatric hospital for evaluation, as this type of statement is NOT one to be taken lightly.
In the best interests of the child, it sounds like you need to be granted temporary custody of your daughter, and you wife needs to be admitted into a psychiatric hospital for evaluation. A good attorney should be able to help you win full custody, with liberal supervised visitation rights to your wife once she is out of the psychiatric hospital and able to evidence ongoing treatment for her mental illness to the court.
You have no time to waste here. You need to speak to an attorney to get the ball rolling ASAP. Your wife's mental illness may also be grounds for her discharge from the military, due to lack of fitness to serve. Hopefully her home state is Florida, where she can be "Baker Acted" and sent to a psychiatric hospital for evaluation if she cannot see fit to enter this type of hospital voluntarily, due to being a new mother with suicidal thoughts.
Is It Better To Hire A Local Attorney, Or An Out Of Town Lawyer?
It is always best to have an attorney who is from the local area where your case will be heard!
Those attorneys are known within the judicial "clique" and have better relationships within the legal community.
Hiring an "outside" attorney will only cost you additional money for services rendered and travel expenses!
Your local attorney is qualified to look at the search warrant or other documentation used in your case where you allege illegal search and seizure and apply the laws of your state and community in your legal issue.
One other option is researching attorneys listed through your local or state bar association or by researching Lawyers.com.
