I'm a law student focusing on family issues - however I cannot give you legal advice. Please seek an attorney - if you are active duty you should be able to get assistance @ your Command Judge Adovcate's office. If not, you should seek the guidance of an attorney out on the economy. Expensive, yes but worth it.
Generally states look at many factors in determining alimony - length of marriage, both spouse's education, earning capacity and work experience. I don't know of any short marriages that anything other than very temporary alimony was ordered - to help the receiving party find a job or enroll in a job trainig program and a general guideline is not longer than the length of a short (under 10 years) marriage. Also for her to conisder - alimony is taxable income to her - and an income reduction on taxes for you.
As far as seeking sole physical custody the supreme court has held that being active duty can no longer be the SOLE basis for denying a service member full custody. something to consider is that you will then be able to remain in base housing if you have custody 6 months and 1 day a year. You will also need to come up with a parenting plan that will address long distance visitation because you will be PCS'd and unless she follows your movements there will be an issue there, too.
As far as who gets physical custody the courts are supposed to look at the best interest of the child. An underemployed parent is not the strongest factor in making that determination.
I hope I've at least been able to give you some things to think about... please contact your legal assistance office ASAP.
Identify The Steps In The Legal Research Process?
I Need Some Help Here, This Is An Elective, I Just Need Someone To Simply This For Me. Thank You
I never knew there were specific steps, but here goes:
When I was in law school, we had to file legal analyses. We started with the issue and divided it up into relevant questions that needed to be discussed. Then we went to Westlaw and checked out the keynotes for cases that addressed those very points. After that we went to Shepherd's to look up those cases, and see how the courts had treated them (upheld, cited, overturned, etc.) If anything was noted as a specific treatment, I'd look up that case and see if it pertained to my issue. If it did, I'd start the process all over until I had the most on-point cases that were the most up-to-date.
After I had my cases, I'd write a discussion of the cases, and write a conclusion as to what the court would do based on these cases.
How Many Victories In A Year Is Considered Very Good For A Criminal Defense Attorney?
In A Medium Sized City Of About 500,000 People. I Know A Lot Of It Has To Do With How Many Cases Are Tried To Begin With, But I'M Just Looking For A Good Ball-Park Figure. Preferably, Anyone With Experience With Attorneys Or Court Should Answer
This is not the right way to measure the situation.
The biggest factors in whether a case will be won or lost are all outside the attorney's control. It is only in a very small portion of cases where the quality of the attorney will have any impact on the likelihood of a conviction. Some attorneys will specialize in cases that are easier to defend (e.g., white collar crime, drug possession cases where suppression of evidence may be a common issue, etc.) whereas other attorneys may specialize in cases that are much harder to defend (e.g., major felony trials where the prosecution and police have gone to great lengths to conduct a proper investigation and gather evidence).
As you mention, it also will depend on the number of cases tried by the attorney. If the attorney tries serious felony or murder cases, odds are they may have only had ~5-10 clients in the past year, and odds are that all of them were convicted. On the other hand, an attorney specializing in misdemeanor DUI law may handle well in excess of 50 cases a year, in which case they probably have acquired a one or tmaybe two not guilty verdicts from those cases. Criminal defendants are almost always found guilty, because there are significant protections in place to ensure that a person is guilty (and that it can be proven) before they are even charged.
Most attorneys who try only major crimes will likely see only a handful of not guilty verdicts in their entire careers. More often, cases will be dismissed before trial or terminated at the preliminary hearing stage, prior to the trial being conducted.
What a good attorney CAN do is work with a client to get a good plea bargain, minimize the sentence, etc. etc. etc.
It is difficult for the general public to distinguish among attorneys. Personally, when selecting an attorney, I would start by looking for attorneys who practice ONLY criminal defense law, who have a minimum of 5-10 years of experience, who previously worked for the agency prosecuting you (e.g., the same DA's office, the US Attorney office, etc.), and who did well at a top nationally ranked law school (e.g., Harvard, Yale, Duke, Stanford, Georgetown) or a the best local law school. Of course, this attorney will be much more expensive.
I would also want an attorney who specializes in or has significant experience in cases of my type. i.e., if it is DUI, I would want someone who mainly or exclusively practices DUI law. If it is murder, I would want someone who has tried several murder cases. If it is white collar crime, someone specializing in that. As a practical matter, this is a bit of a "wish list" and you will not find attorneys meeting these criteria in a town of 500K people, and if you are able to find them, their rates will be astronimical.
After getting a short list, I would interview each attorney and make a final decision based on my gut feeling and the rate the attorney charges.
I would also be cautious of any attorney whose rate is significantly below the local average.
Father Receiving Joint Custody?
What Would Be Reasons That A Father Would Not Receive Joint Custody Of His 2 1/2 Year Old Daughter.
Besides The Obvious Like Being Abusive, Bad Record, Just All Around Bad Person.
What Would Make The Court Decide That A Father Cannot Have Time To See His Daughter With Joint Custody In Arizona?
Are you talking about joint legal or joint physical custody? These are two different things.
Generally the court will not give joint physical custody of a child under the age of five. Research has found that it is not good for young children to be passed back and forth between two different homes/two different beds unless the parents have agreed to do this. Judges tend to give very liberal visitation, though.
But unless the father is abusive TO THE CHILD (it is not enough that the father may have had a history of abuse with the mother), the father WILL get joint legal custody.
