Legal Aid(Please Help!! Urgent!)?
Greetings My Name Is Micheal. I Recently Turned 18 February 12Th. I Am Originally From California And Moved With My Father In January(Start Of New Semester), Under The Premise That I Would Graduate Early In Early May By Attending A Privatized Virtual Class Room . I Have Never Drunk, Partied, Smoked, Or Kissed/Hung Out With A Girl--I Am A Virgin In All Those Respects, But In Around Last Month April My Father Pulled My Out Of School Citing That &Quot;He Was Not Going To Pay For Me To Sit Around And Do Nothing.&Quot;
I Have Manged Around A 2.4 In High School And A 3.3 In Middle, Yet It Seems As Though I Have Made A Grave Error In Residing With Him. He Goes On Rants About How He Owes Me Nothing, Since I Am 18, And How &Quot;Every 18 Year Old Should Have A Plan.&Quot;
Every Day, I Have Been Cleaning His House For Him And His New-Wife Jean Working The Backyard, Cleaning The House(Which Is An Unrepentant 2 Stories) And Cooking Dinner. Only To Be Told How I &Quot;Do Nothing Around The House&Quot; And How I Am Lazy.
He States That He Will But Me Back In School I Simply Need To Give Him $200 Dollars For School Fees And Room And Board. Which Of Course, Working At A Sports Store Making $70 On Saturday'S Not Afford Me The Capital To Do It.
I Wish To Leave But Am Hesitant To, As I Am Afraid Of The Repercussions. Upon My Leaving, He May Attempt To Become Outlandish, And Sue Me In Small Claims Court For Taking Items. Unfathomably , I Do Not Have The Receipts For All The Clothes I Have Purchased Over The Years Of 0-17. I Am Frightened That He Will Take All My Mail, Put It On A Street Corner, And Tell Me To Leave Come Soon.
He And My Mother Have An Agreement With The Courts That Child Support Must Be Paid Until Around June 3Rd With A Pay Out Of $475 Dollars Per Month That I Have Stayed. In A Sense, He Is Housing Me,(As The Child Support Was Reversed In His Favor Since He Has Me In His Home) Until He Can Bide Enough Time To Gain The Money And Put Me Out Come The 3Rd,
What Am I To Do? Can I Leave And Take Some Items With Me? Without Legally Being Held At Bay? I Am On This Circus Show Of Having To &Quot;Lie-Between-My-Teeth&Quot; To Relatives And Family Members About When I Graduate As The Second I Tell Someone I Will Be Forced To Leave. The Care Of The Court Order Only Works When I Am In School, Which Thanks To Me Not Realizing The Implications Of My Fathers Cantankerous Scheme, I Am No Longer In.
You are an adult. You need a plan QUICKLY to move out. Your father has no obligation to house and feed you.
You are worried that he may sue you? There are bigger things to worry about. I do not think any judge will be interested in helping him recover any damages, as long as you only take your own clothes and personal items. (Do not take any electronics or appliances.)
Time to leave.
Can Anyone Apply For Legal Aid?
My Boyfriend Is 21 And Has A Crazy Ex Girlfriend And A 3 Year Old Daughter He Has Not Been Able To See. Hes Offered Support, But She Does Not Want It. She Would Rather Do It On Her Own Than Give Him The Chance To Be A Father To His Daughter. He Wanted To Handle Everything Without Having To Fight Her In Court But She Is Unreasonable. He Has A Job, But He Still Cannot Afford A Lawyer And He Has Zero Support From His Parents. He Currently Lives With His Parents. Is Anyone Able To Receive Legal Aid? And How Effective Is It? Are There People Out There That Can Help Him Establish Visitation Rights, And Pay Child Support? Also We Are Dealing With A Child That Is Growing Up On A Native Reserve If That Makes A Difference.
Not all legal assistance offices have departments that deal with custody and visitation. Some do though, so there is no harm in trying.
Some law schools have a clinic that provides free or low cost advice. Try your local law school.
The reservation might be a problem as well, especially if the child and mother are enrolled members. Depends on the tribe though.
Help With Questions To Ask To A Lawyer?
When I Grow Up I Want To Become A Lawyer And My Grandma Set Up And Appointment With One Of Her Friends Son Who Is A Lawyer, And He Wants Me To Go Talk To Him, He Said To Ask Him Questions But Im So Excited That I Dont Even Know What To Ask, Lol Plase Help Me, I Would Really Appreciate It.Thank You So Much,
Ask him what he would do differently if he could do it over again. For instance, is there a course of study he didn't pursue that would've been helpful?
Ask him when he decided to become an attorney. As a child? In college? Then ask why. Because he wanted to earn a lot of money? Because he wanted to help people in trouble? The answer will depend on what kind of law he practices, but it will give you the general idea of the kinds of things you'll want to consider, depending on your own priorities.
Ask him what he would've wanted to know at your age.
Ask him how he paid for his schooling.
And, for sure, ask him what he likes the most and the least about being an attorney. :)
Write down any important Qs you want to make sure you get answered, but be sure and ask as you go along - whatever comes up.
When you leave, shake his hand and thank him for his time. Be sure and thank your grandmother. :) How wonderful for you to have someone so supportive!
Is Lawyer An Honorable Profession?
Advice from another out of work Attorney who can’t pay his student loans…..
Warning! Jobs in the field of Law are drying up FAST!! This is not a good field to invest time and/or money into. This is a SHRINKING vocational field. Many reasons. Many people today think they can do their own legal work, thanks to the Internet. We simply have WAY TOO MANY Legal Professionals - we have an absolute GLUT!! ("Legal Professionals" includes, but is not limited to: Attorneys/Lawyers, Paralegals, Legal Assistants, Legal Secretaries, Bailiffs, Court Reporters, etc, etc)
Regarding being a Paralegal: Paralegals can be found in many types of businesses. Employers (usually law firms) in the field of Law want employees with BACHELORS degrees from traditional universities/colleges. Those "certificates" you sometimes see advertised, aren't worth the paper they are printed on - they are generally SCAMS.
Even IF you finish law school, you won't be able to find a job when you are done. Since this vocational field is shrinking, many new attorneys/lawyers are, themselves, having to work "down" as Paralegals, Legal Assistants, Legal Secretaries, Bailiffs, Court Reporters, etc, etc, to simply try to keep some of THEIR bills paid <THIS would be your competition. And the competition is FIERCE!!
Now... the law schools know this, but they won't tell you the truth >that the job market/economy is SATURATED with WAY TOO MANY Legal Professionals. Instead the schools will feed you a fairytale and will LIE to you. The root of the problem is we have too many law schools. We are in a recession, and the schools are fighting for their own survival - they will tell students ANYTHING to get to the students' money. (Which is why they won't tell you the truth about the job market for the field of Law.) AND these schools continue to recruit and churn out even MORE Legal Professionals.............
If you don't believe me, then just do a SEARCH here on Yahoo Answers to see what other posters are saying about the current status of the field of Law.
In the book "So You Want to be a Lawyer? by Marianne Calabrese and susanne Calabrese (ISBN 0-88391-136-1): "The United States has more lawyers than any other country in the world. About 38,000 students graduate EACH YEAR from 200 law schools in the United States. The competition is very keen for jobs and clients."
If you want a JOB when you are done with your studies, consider and look into the field of >>>HEALTHCARE! <THIS is where the jobs are! and scholarships
Is It Good If I Wanna Apply To A Law Firm? I Have An Llm From A Top 10 Usa Law School?
And An Internship Froma Top 3 . Will This Help Me If I Wanna Apply To Law Firms? Are They Hiring Right Now? Even If Pro Bono? Whom Shall I Talk To? I Speak 3 Languages.
From what I heard, law firms everywhere are looking to cut, not hire. Sounds like you have good credentials. It's about marketing yourself and making yourself stand out, but it will be difficult at this point.
Is The Tv Show &Quot;Suits&Quot; What Its Like To Work In A Law Firm?
I Love The Usa Show &Quot;Suits.&Quot; It Shows A Corporate Law Firm And It Shows Much Excitement And Many Interesting Problems. Is A Real Law Firm Anything Like That? Or Is It Just A Boring Horrible Job?
No, real law firms are nothing like that. There will never be a TV show that accurately depicts a real law firm, because no one would watch it for more than five minutes. People are holed up in their offices for hours on end cranking out work, or conferring with clients who have problems which are never as interesting as the ones you see on TV. It's a lot of very hard and tedious work, very long hours, and there's really nothing glamorous about it whatsoever. No one walks around wearing Armani and looking fabulous, or goes out for long lunches at fabulous restaurants. People are rumpled, exhausted, and eat deli sandwiches at their desks. The petty office politics and back-stabbing are usually pretty juvenile, and would bore to tears any outside observer. The real work can be pretty fascinating and very worthwhile, and bring a lot of personal satisfaction, but exciting and dramatic, it's not.
