Alimony Request 9 Years After Divorce Settlement? My Husband Just Recieved A Letter From His Ex Wife'S Lawyer
Stating That Now His Obligations Regarding Child Support Are Over (His 2 Children Are Over 18 And In College) She Wants Him To Pay All The College Expenses And To Pay Her Alimony, She Got Over A Million Cash Settlement And Has Been Working For The Past 5 Years, Her Child Support Was $3000 A Month Which I Guess She Was Partially Living Off.My Husband'S Business Is Not As Successful As When He Was Married To Her And We Are Not Wealthy. What Are Her Chances Of Getting More? And Can She Go After My Income ($40000 A Year Whoop-De Do!) And Bank Accounts Which I Have Kept Seperate From My Husbands.
You need to contact a lawyer in YOUR STATE (you didn't even list it). A divorce is final once the appeals period has expired. Child support is modifiable with a change in income of the parties. Alimony is modifiable on the marriage of the receiving spouse or change in income of the parties. In most states, alimony and post minority support (college expenses, support of a disabled adult) have to be reserved in the initial divorce decree before they can be modified. Your husband needs to contact his attorney and ask him about the law in YOUR STATE.
Can Atheists Collect On The Act Of God Clause In Insurance Policies?
Yeah. Like most uses of the word "god" in modern society, it's just an expression. It means natural disaster.
Question On Criminal Defense Law.?
Every Time I Bring Up An Interest In Pursuing Law School And A Career In Criminal Law, I Hear The Same Broken Record. People Seem Fixated On The Idea That Criminal Defense Lawyers Rigorously Try Acquit People They Know Are Guilty. I'Ve Never Taken An Ethics Class And I Don'T Know The Laws, But Is This True?
Are Lawyers Supposed To Receive Admissions Of Guilt From Their Client? If A Client Confesses To His/Her Representation, Wouldn'T That Make It Unethical To Submit A Plea Of Not Guilty? For Some Reason, I Have It In My Head That Clients, If Guilty, Are Supposed To Tell Everything But The Dirty Deed For Best Representation. Any Thoughts? Thanks In Advance!
I'M Not Biased For/Against Defense Lawyers. It'S Not My Area Of Interest, But It Is Interesting Area Of Ethics Nonetheless!
There's an old adage that the first client of the criminal defense attorney is the US Constitution.
Most criminal defense lawyers don't care whether their clients are guilty or not. They just want to ensure that the police and the prosecutors have done their jobs properly and ensure the criminal justice system is working. If they lose at trial, but are satisfied the the police and prosecutors did everything by the book, they generally don't take it too hard. If the defense thinks a conviction is imminent, they will generally try a plea bargain to receive a lesser sentence for their client. Before anyone makes any judgment's about the criminal defense attorney "trying to get his client off with a slap on the wrist", they should also realize that the prosecutor has to agree to the deal, and the judge has to approve it. So if anyone is ever upset with a plea bargain, they need to realize that if the judge and prosecutor went along with it, its probably in the state's best interest as well.
But to answer your question, see below.
ABA Model Rule of Professional Conduct 3.3 Candor Toward The Tribunal
(a) A lawyer shall not knowingly:
(1) make a false statement of fact or law to a tribunal or fail to correct a false statement of material fact or law previously made to the tribunal by the lawyer;
(2) fail to disclose to the tribunal legal authority in the controlling jurisdiction known to the lawyer to be directly adverse to the position of the client and not disclosed by opposing counsel; or
(3) offer evidence that the lawyer knows to be false. If a lawyer, the lawyer’s client, or a witness called by the lawyer, has offered material evidence and the lawyer comes to know of its falsity, the lawyer shall take reasonable remedial measures, including, if necessary, disclosure to the tribunal. A lawyer may refuse to offer evidence, other than the testimony of a defendant in a criminal matter, that the lawyer reasonably believes is false.
(b) A lawyer who represents a client in an adjudicative proceeding and who knows that a person intends to engage, is engaging or has engaged in criminal or fraudulent conduct related to the proceeding shall take reasonable remedial measures, including, if necessary, disclosure to the tribunal.
(c) The duties stated in paragraphs (a) and (b) continue to the conclusion of the proceeding, and apply even if compliance requires disclosure of information otherwise protected by Rule 1.6.
So if a client confesses guilt to his lawyer, the above rule prohibits the lawyer from putting the client on the stand (refered to as "subornation of perjury"). If the lawyer knows the client is guilty, and the client doesn't plead guilty, the case goes to trial. At trial, the lawyer can't put the client on the stand, because the lawyer knows the client will lie about his or her innocence once they are on the stand. This is why defense lawyers don't care whether their clients are guilty or not, and why they specifically tell their clients not to tell them if they are guilty or not. They don't want to know, so they can put them on the stand.
Believe it or not, this rule is almost never violated. No lawyer would ever risk losing his license because his or her client is a liar.
And remember, OJ didn't take the stand. Draw your own conclusion....
Do I Need To Talk To A Real Estate Lawyer?
I Put A $5000 Deposit On A Townhouse That I Want To Buy. There Is A Tenant In It, Her Lease Is Not Up Until Novenber. We Were Going To Close By The End Of The Month. I Was Going To Let The Tenant Stay Until Her Lease Is Up. Someone Told Me To Think About It First.
What If When Nov. Comes And She Does Not Want To Leave. And Also, What If She Stops Paying Her Rent. She Has A Little Girl And I Know Sometimes It Can Take Up To A Year To Get People Out.
I Am Afraid Of Losing The House Before I Even Move In.
So, Now I Have Told My Realtor That I Want The Owners To Get Her Out Before The Closing. I Am Willing To Wait Until Nov. When Her Lease Is Up. I Should Also Say That My Mortage Guy Knows Nothing About That Fact That There Is A Tenant In The House. My Realtor Said That It Would Be Better Not To Tell Him.
I Don'T Want To Lose My Deposit. And I Would Like To Buy The House. So Far There Is No Lawers Involved. The Owners Were Not Going To Use A Lawyer. Do I Need To Talk To One?
If you are ever not sure about a real estate transaction talk to a lawyer. Have the lawyer read the lease, you and the tenant both have to honor the current lease. If she doesn't pay then you evict like any landlord, and she has to move out when the lease is up. Your Realtor told you not to tell your lender about the tenant because the property probably has to be "owner occupied" or you pay a higher interest rate. You should also point that out to the attorney, if the lender finds out a tenant is there your payment could go up to about 1% of the homes value each month.
What Is Your Opinion Illegal Files Federal Lawsuit Claims Local Indigent Defense System Fails Defendants?
A Federal Lawsuit Claims Houston County’S Indigent Defense System Is Too Flawed To Provide Defendants With Adequate Legal Representation And Asks A Judge To End The Program And Award Monetary Damages.
The Suit Was Filed In U.S. District Court Last Week By Three Dothan Attorneys And An Attorney From Mobile On Behalf Of Cenobio Sanchez, An Illegal Immigrant Who Pleaded Guilty To Murder In Houston County In 2009; And Tina Mikel, Who Pleaded Guilty To Unlawful Possession Of A Controlled Substance In 2009.
The Suit, However, Is Seeking Class Action Status, Meaning It Could Apply To All Defendants Who Have Received Legal Representation Since 2004 When Houston County Adopted A “Contract” System For Attorneys Who Represent Criminal Defendants Unable To Pay For Their Own Lawyer. No Ruling Has Been Made On The Class Action Request.
Defendants Include Gov. Robert Bentley, The Director Of The Alabama Administrative Office Of Courts, Houston County’S Presiding Circuit Judge, And The Members Of Houston County’S Indigent Defense Commission.
They have a chance to win the new US lottery - a class action suit. It's all about the MONEY.
