Should The U.S. Adopt Legal Aid Instead Of Having Public Defenders?
Some Countries Have Legal Aid As Oppose To Public Offenders. I Want To Know The Pros/Cons Of Both Ideas. For Those Who Don'T Know What Legal Aid Is, It Is Using Government Money To Pay For Lawyers Who Work In Private Practice, For Those Who Can'T Afford A Lawyer On Their Own. It Could Be Anywhere From Criminal Defence Lawyers, Civil And Litigation Lawyers To Family Lawyers. That Way People Who Can'T Afford A Lawyer For Their Legal Troubles Can Hire The Same Lawyers That Other People(Who Can Afford A Lawyer) Hire Out Of Their Own Pocket. Expierenced Lawyers Who Work In Private Practice.
We have legal aid. Legal aid is for civil matters like divorce, custody, home eviction, etc. for people who can't afford an attorney but aren't entitled to one Constitutionally per the 6th Amendment.
Many attorneys participate in legal aid to add extra pro bono hours or just because they want to help people who can't afford an attorney but need one in one of the above stated matters I mentioned. And guess what - many of these lawyers receive no tax dollars. They do it on their own dime and their own time. There are staff attorneys who do get tax money salaries, but many of the contract attorneys just do it out of the goodness of their hearts to make the legal system accessible to those who need it. We would rather people settle their differences in a civil place, than to have them settle their differences with knife fights on the streets.
What Exactly Is An &Quot;Employment&Quot; Lawyer And How Should I Go About Finding One?
An employment lawyer deals in one or more aspects of employment - discrimination based on race, gender, disability, age. They may also deal with other employment type laws including Social Security, worker's compensation really, any aspect of employment.
To find an attorney who specializes in employment law, contact your local bar association. They usually have lists of attorneys by specialty area. Also www.findlaw.com has lists of attorneys by specialty, as well.
I Have A Question For An Injury Lawyer......?
I Was The Passenger In A Car Accident In Febuary And Ended Up With A Fractured Hip And Dislocated It Also. I Had To Have Emergency Surgery And Have Pins And Plates Put In. I Am An Army Reservist And I Also Had A Civilian Job. The Doctor Is Says I Pretty Much Cant Do Anything And Now I Have To Have A Full Hip Replacement. I Havent Been Able To Work Since Febuary And The Insurance Company Of The Person At Fault Said They Can Only Offer 250000 Dollars To Cover The First Surgery And The First Surgery Was A Little Over 68000. Im Not Being Compinsated In Any Way Shape Or Form And Its Been Over 2 Months. Im Even Having To Pay Out Of My Own Pocket For The Monthly Doctor Visits. And The Insurance Company Said I Have To Find My Own Sources For The Second Surgery. Im Currently Not Insured. Because Of This Accident I Might Very Well Be Getting A Military Discharge Also. I Havent Had Any Source Of Income Since The Accident Or Anything. Is There More That I Should Be Entitled Too Other Than What The Insurance Company Said They Could Cover? Or Am I Pretty Much Screwed? There Were No Other Cars Involved. The Person At Fault Was The Driver And He Lost Control On The Interstate And Hit Head On Into The Concrete Median..
Ask your lawyer. No insurance company will offer you more than what their paper says, but a lawyer will get that number increased. Of course, the lawyer will also take a substantial chunk of any settlement made, from 30-40% of the total. So if he can't at least double the money, it isn't worth the effort.
Do Disability Lawyers Like To Use Their Own Doctors Or Do They Have To Use A Social Security Doctor?
I Am Getting Help From A Large Firm Lawyer To Get My Social Security Disability And They Are Sending Me To A Doctor Where I Have To Pay $500.00 Up Front. Do You Think They Are Using Their Own Doctors Or Is It A Social Security Doctor? They Said I Have To Pay Cash Up Front To The Doctor.
What you have to remember for disability is this. Have as much documentation from YOUR Dr's I do not know what your disability is but I know with mine I had so much documentation from all the Dr's I went to.
I got every report every film I had op reports physical therapy reports.
The next step was I was to see a Social Security Dr. 2 days before the appointment my lawyers called and said Social Security received all your reports and just issued me Social Security Disability without their Dr looking at me. that is how much documentation I had.
I do not like the idea that your lawyer has a Dr for you to go to for Social Security, but that is just me.
Like I said earlier I do not know what happened toy you but get as much documentation as possible. You are entitled to any and all reports from Dr's you went to EXCEPT a workers comp Dr. But your lawyer can get those and you should ask for a copy of them also.
Hope this helped.
Family Court Info Needed?
I Recently Separated With The Father Of My Son. We Lived Together And Tried To Make It Work But I Cheated On Him With Someone I Dated Years Ago. Things Were Not Going Well With The Father Of My Son Anyways. I Have Been Dating This New Man For About 1 Week Now. He Kicked Me And My Son Out The Day He Learned About It.
The Father Of My Son Wants To Take Me To Court To Prove That The Separation Was My Fault And That It'S An Healthy Environment For Our Son. I Only Invite My Old-New Boyfriend In My Apartment When My Son Is Not Home. We Live The Equivalent Of A Long Distance Relationship. Otherwise, I'M A Single Mom And I'M Only In A Relationship When My Son Is At My Parents, My Ex In-Laws And His Dad.
My Ex And Father Of My Son Told Me He Talked To A Lawyer And That They Might Ask My Current Boyfriend To Provide Information About Our Relationship. When It Started, Show Phone Records And Facebook Logs.
Is He Right About That? Is He Even Allowed To? He Wants Full Custody And He Told Me I'M Unfit To Be A Mom, That I Provide An Unfamiliar Environment To My Son.
The above answers are kind of sort of wrong. The correct answer is....
Get a lawyer. If your talking child support and visitation, then you don't need a lawyer. But for a custody battle, your going to need a lawyer.
The first thing you want to talk to your lawyer about is payment. In some states you can get the father to pay your legal bills. You might also be able to make a payment plan. I'm sure money is tight, but this is important.
Without a lawyer, almost anything can happen. With a lawyer, it's almost guaranteed that you'll get custody. Your the mother, and your the current care taker, which gives you a big plus in court. The only way the father could get custody is if he had real proof of very serious abuse. A relationship with someone else doesn't count as child abuse.
Don't give him any information. In any court case you never give out any information until you've cleared it with your lawyer. Nothing. Not even the time of day.
The judge will give you custody and child support, and he'll get visitation. It's all very standard, so don't worry about it.
I'm sure the judge will ask for dna test, but if he doesn't, then I suggest that you ask for one. It's not about how certain YOU are, it's about how certain the father is. You don't want that 10 years from now he's wondering about it.
Wendy's right. He hasn't seen a lawyer. No decent lawyer would start asking for proof of any relationship. The father is just playing you. Getting you all upset.
Should I Go Ahead And Just Give Up And Start Seeking Legal Advice?
I'Ve Posted About My Marrital Problems Before, But Things Are Only Getting Worse. Let Me Give You Some Background And Then Finish My Question At The End. I Really Need Some Advice. And I Don'T Need Children Responding Or Nonserious Sarcastic Responses Please. This Is A Very Serious Situation For Me.
I'Ve Been Wondering For Awhile If I'M Just Being Too Nice To My Husband. I'M Being Perfectly Honest And Giving The Full Scenario. My Husband And I Have Been Married For Six Years And Together Over 7. We Have One Precious Child. I Was A Stay At Home Mom For 2.5 Years And He Works Really Hard Outside The Home. I Already Have One Degree, But Am Going Back To School To Take It A Little Further Now. I Will Have My Bsn Soon, Which Is Very Demanding. I Go To School 4 Days A Week And Work A Part-Time Job On The Weekends. We Live Fairly Nicely And I Don'T Want Or Need For Much. I Am Highly Educated, But Have Decided To Stay Home With Our Son As Much As Possible, And I Did For My Pregnancy And The First 2.5 Years Of Our Son'S Life. I Clean The House Top To Bottom Once A Week, Do All The Laundry, Iron My Husband'S Clothes, Lay His Clothes Out At Night Before Bed So He Has Them Ready In The Morning, Have A Home Cooked Dinner On The Table Every Night At 6:30 (Except For Fridays), Take Care Of All The Finances, Take Care Of The Vehicles, Arrange For The Yard To Be Taken Care Of, Take Care Of Our Two Dogs, Keep Myself Fit And Nice Looking, Give Him Sex Just About Everytime He Wants It, Pack His Lunch Every Night, And I Get Up At 4 Every Morning With Him And Make His Breakfast. Plus, I Study Every Evening And Work 13 Hours At The Local Hospital For Rotations On Wednesday.
I Would Not Have A Problem With This At All If I Felt Appreciated, But He Doesn'T. He Does Not Say Thank You And Does Nothing Special For Me Ever. In The Six Years We'Ve Been Married I'Ve Never Even Had An Orgasm From Him...I Have To Please Myself. I Would Never Ever Cheat On Him, So I Just Find Ways To Pleasure Myself. He'S Not Abusive Or Anything, But I Just Feel Neglected.
We Have Gone To Marriage Counseling, Sex Therapy, Discussed This Many Many Times, And Nothing Gets Better. In Fact, It'S Getting Worse.
I Feel Like He Brings Out The Worst In Me And I'M Always Irritated Now. I Have Zero Depression Or Anxiety By The Way. I'M Just At My Witts End. I Can'T Give Or Do Anymore. The Stress Is Starting To Eat Away At My Body Too. The Doctors Have Told Me This For The Past Two Years Too. Because Of All Of The Demands, I Don'T Get Much Sleep And I'M Under Constant Stress. I'M Starting To Lose Patches Of My Hair, Have Stomach Ulcers, Cystic Acne, And Heart Problems. I'Ve Discussed This With My Husband And He Shows No Concern. As A Matter Of Fact, I Was Hospitalized Back In April For A Week And He Never Once Came To See Me At The Hospital. I Had To Drive Myself Home Actually. I Have Pretty Major Surgery Too, But He Never Came Up There.
He Has Also Started Fighting, Professionally, Just Within The Last Two Years. So, He Drives To Work First Thing In The Mornings, An Hour Away, Then When He Gets Off Work, He Goes And Trains. He Doesn'T Get Home Until 9 At Night Almost Every Evening. I Feel Like A Single Parent. He Has Only Given Our 3 Year Old Son 3 Or 4 Baths In His Whole Life. He Is Almost Never Home.
Oh! And To Top It Off, We Have Slept In Seperate Beds For Over A Year. I Have Tried And Tried And Tried To Get Him To Change And Be More Of A Family Man And A Partner, But Nothing Changes. He Just Doesn'T Seem To Understand He Has A Wife And Child At Home.
At Any Rate, Without Going On And On (Because I Could), I'M Wondering If I Should Go Ahead And Seek Legal Advice And Start My Case Against Him? I Have Put This Off For So Long Because Of Our Son, But I'M Beginning To Realize My Husband Is Never Home Anyway And I Don'T Want Our Son Thinking That This Is What Marriage Is All About. Plus, I Hate How He Sees Us Arguing And How My Husband Talks Down To Me. I Don'T Want Him Thinking That'S How To Treat Someone You Love.
The Thing Is, I Can'T Go To School Full Time And Afford This House And All Of Our Bills. So, I'M Going To Have To Wait To Do The Divorce Completely Until After I Graduate In A Year. But, I Know It Is Going To Be A Fight. So, Should I Go Ahead And Start Speaking With An Attorney Now?
And, For Those Of You Who Think I'M Exagerating About What I Do For Him, Or About The Situation In General, I'M Not. I'M Being 100% Honest. I Have No Reason To Lie To Anyone On Here. I Don'T Even Know Any Of You.
I Was Raised That You Take Care Of Your Husband No Matter What, Good Ol' Southern Girl. My Parents Have Been Married 30 Years And My Grandparents Over 50. I Took My Vows To Heart And Never Thought I'D Ever Be Divorced. I Just Can'T Continue At This Rate.
And For Those Of You Wondering If I Have Told Him What I Want And Need Pertaining To Sexual Needs, I Have...Many Times. He Truly Does Not Care That I Don'T Get Of
I am so sorry. I've been there,too.Start documenting everything.Talk to a lawyer. Try to find a legal aid clinic (usually associated w/ a Law school or University) in your area. Your divorce will cost you. Also, start socking away as much money as possible.Find out what all your joint assets are.During this time, any money that you might possibly inherit, put in an account marked 'separate property', so he can't touch it.You also might consider hiring a P.I. to tail him for a week or so, just to make sure there isn't someone else in the picture. Also,get a background check on him.I was w/ my ex for 9 years; we even owned a business together, and I was clueless that he was cheating on me w/ hookers until I discovered that he was arrested one night when I was working late.I wonder what his family is like. Can you talk to anyone in his family? What about your family & friends? Get as much moral support as you can.Take some time for yourself. Get in a baby sitting co-op or a Mother's Day out program, and spend some time alone or w/ your friends. You may change your mind about him; he may shape up, but it's better to be prepared in case he doesn't. Good luck!
