4 Approaches To Help Your Lawyer Help You When you need a legal representative at all, you must work closely using them as a way to win your case. Irrespective of how competent they may be, they're likely to need your help. Here are four important approaches to help your legal team enable you to win: 1. Be Totally Honest And Up Your lawyers need and expect your complete cooperation - whatever information you're likely to reveal directly to them. Privilege means whatever you say is kept in confidence, so don't hold anything back. Your legal team should know all things in advance - particularly information one other side could check out and surprise you with later. 2. Provide Meticulous Records Keep a regular and factual account of most information associated with your case. Whether it's witnesses or payments being made, provide your attorneys with all the data they must help them to win. 3. Turn Up Early For Many Engagements Never be late when you're appearing before a court and avoid wasting the attorney's time, too, when you are by the due date, each and every time. The truth is, because you may need to discuss eleventh hour details or even be extra prepared for the situation you're facing, it's a smart idea to arrive early. 4. Demonstrate That You Have Your Act Together If you've been responsible for any type of crime, it's important to be able to convince a legal court that you both regret the actions and they are making strides toward boosting your life. For example, if you're facing driving under the influence, volunteer to get a rehab program. Be sincere and linked to the cities the judge is presiding over. Working more closely with the legal team increases your chances of absolute success. Try this advice, listen closely to how you're advised and ultimately, you ought to win your case.

A Real Family Law Lawyer, Needed...?
My Daughter Was Taken From Me... Just Before Her First Birthday... I Have Searched For Her, By The Best Of My Means... I Finally Found Her On Facebook, Sometime Early 2010... I Found Out Soon After, That Her Mother Had Died May 11, 2009... A Woman Claiming To Be My Daughters Grandmother(No Blood Relation), Filed For Guardianship; A Month After Her Mothers Death... She Stated On The Guardianship Papers, That The Natural Father Was Unknown... This Woman Did Know Of Me... She Testified Against Me At The Divorce Hearing... I Have Been Trying To Overturn The Guardianship, For About Two Years Now... I Have Even Proven Myself With Dna Testing... The Courts In Jackson County Have Overlooked The Fact That This Woman Committed Fraud Against The Courts, By Say That She Did Not Know Of Me... The Courts Are Also In My Opinion, Denying Me My God Given Right To Be A Father...
I'm not a lawyer but know a little bit about the law.
Were you listed on the birth certificate as the father? Certainly the absence of your name on the birth certificate would influence the court in their ruling. Did you take the DNA test before or after this lady testified against you at the divorce hearing? If after, how was she supposed to know that you were the father?
Were you married to the mother at the tme the child was conceived? Was the mother married to another man near the time of conception? In some states you lose any rights whatsoever if you do not file a court action in a year or two of the child's birth establishing you as father if the mother was married to another man even though you later prove through a DNA test that you are the biological father.
Also each state has a time limit as to when a court guardianship decree can be set aside.
Response to additional details: It does seem unjust. But you need to establish fraud to set aside guardianship. Why weren't you listed as father on the divorce decree? The divorce order may serve as res judicata that you are not the father.

What Is The Benefit Of Dividing Canadian Law Into Civil Law And Criminal Law?
I Was Also Wondering If The Court Procedure For The Civil Law Only Has The Defendant, Plaintiff, And The Judge, Or If It Also Has The Prosecution Like In The Courts For Criminal Law?
Criminal law has a very different purpose than other sorts of law. We as a society have determined that there are some acts so undesireable that people who commit them should be punished. The criminal justice system is designed to see appropriate punishments administered. It's about the blameworthiness of the criminal.
The civil courts, on the other hand, are designed to provide a remedy to individuals who have been wronged. Under most circumstances, it's fundamentally about the entitlements of the plaintiff.
Under the vast majority of circumstances, there's nobody prosecuting anything in a civil court. You're not there because an offence has been committed.
Mind you, there are also "quasi-criminal" laws in Canada, usually enacted by the Province. The Provinces don't have the constitutional power to enact criminal laws; however, they are empowered to regulate a great many things. Thus, they regulate your activities on the highway...so when you're charged with going 130kph in a 100 zone, it's not strictly a criminal offence, though you will be prosecuted for it in a model very similar to the criminal model.
Under 18 Assault/ Battery Charges?
Im A 16 Year Old Female.
Tomorrow Im Probably Going To Be Getting In A Fight With A Girl Who Beat Me Up A Few Months Ago. This Is My First Chance To Redeem Myself. At The Last Fight I Said I Was Gonna Call The Cops But Later Didnt Cause My Boyfriend Talked Me Out Of It.
And Since She Won She Didnt Call The Cops.
But Tomorrow, I Know Ill Win.
And I Have A Feeling Shes Gonna Call The Cops
My Question Is What Would The Charge (If Any) Be On Eiter Of Us?
And Would That Be A Misdemeanor Or Something More?
Note: Ive Been Arrested Before
Wow. You would be so incredibly stupid to attack someone tomorrow or ever. Preschoolers understand that you are required to keep your hands to yourself.
Oh yes, it will be something more than a misdemeanor - because you are PLANNING this. This isn't going to be a spur of the moment situation. You are plotting and planning the assault and battery of this other person. Even if you lose the fight tomorrow, you would still be facing a felony charge.
And if you think that because you're a minor that your record gets wiped clean - you'd better think again. In most states, felonies committed by a minor don't automatically get sealed. In my state, you would have to wait ten years after you were completely done with your probation, etc. to APPLY to get your record sealed. This means you would have a felony conviction on your record until you were 28 - and that only assumes that you are able to stay out of trouble for that ten year period. And you can kiss college and good jobs goodbye when you have a felony conviction for assault.
Also, are you hoping to get married and have children some day? The divorce rate is about 50% so it is very likely that you will be in a custody battle with your future ex-husband over your children. You had better believe that an assault and battery conviction will be used against you for the rest of your life.
