Which Career Is Better: Lawyer / Medical Specialist / Journalist?
Which Career Is Better: Lawyer / Medical Specialist / Journalist?
Please Consider The Salary, Outlook On Future, Years Of Schooling, The Level Of Stress, Un/Employment Rates. I Need Good Answers.
I Am Interested In All These Areas.
By The Way, The Medical Areas I'M Thinking Of Are Opthalmology Or Neurology.
Well as cliched as it may seem, you should focus on doing what you love or enjoy first when considering these three jobs, rather then the criteria you mentioned.
That being said here are my opinions:
lawyer - high pay tends to equal high stress. The long term employment outlook is good, but it seems to be taking longer and longer to pay off those loans for law school. Of course if you are the number one student in a top tier school, then you should be fine.
medical specialist - not sure here, so I'll skip it.
journalist - this one is tough. Thanks to the internet, this field is going through some massive changes. The formerly typical type of journalism jobs, print, is disappearing. Yet the appetite for news, clips, etc. delivered through electronic news sources is growing. I'd look for a program that taught you journalism skills but specialized in new media means for getting your message to the people.
Can Law Enforcement Officers Give Legal Advice To Suspects?
If Not Can They Get In Legal Trouble? I Heard They Can'T Give Legal Advice.
Only licensed attorneys can give legal advice. Police are not usually lawyers, therefore they can't give legal advice. Also, it is the role of the police officer to investigate the crime and gather evidence that is turned over to the state's attorney to determine if charges will be brought. It would be a conflict of interest for the police officer to give any kind of legal advice in those circumstances.

My advice is to get a Life Events Legal Plan from Pre-Paid Legal Services, Inc. With this you will be able to:
-Ask a Lawyer any question you need a legal answer to, you can ask as many questions as you want. No Limit.
-While talking with you if the Lawyer feels a letter or phone call made by them on your behalf will help, they will do that.
-They will review and advise you on any contract or document. (buying a home, car, even cell phone. Any document you don't fully understand)
-A Will, get a Standard Will (more complex than a simple will) and have it updated every year as long as you are a member.
-Traffic Ticket help, Get a ticket, get advice on how to handle it or have them go to court for you.

What Is The Difference Between An Attorney And Lawyer?
Is There Even A Difference
In the US, not really. There used to be, but because their actual definitions cover the same ground, they are interchangeable.
I'm linking a pretty good article with the different technically definitions.
"Generally speaking, an attorney, or attorney-at-law, is a person who is a member of the legal profession. An attorney is qualified and licensed to represent a client in court. By most definitions, an attorney may act on the client’s behalf and plead or defend a case in legal proceedings. The English word attorney has French origins, where it meant “a person acting for another as an agent or deputy.”
A lawyer, by definition, is someone who is trained in the field of law and provides advice and aid on legal matters. Because a lawyer also conducts suits in court proceedings and represents clients in various legal instances, the term has expanded to overlap the definition of attorney. In the U.S., attorney and lawyer are normally considered synonyms. The term lawyer has Middle English roots."
What Kind Work Does Paralegals Perform For Their Attorneys In A Law Firm?
Paralegal tasks vary by attorney/law firm. The tasks vary by the type of law performed in that firm. I do everything from stocking the firm fridge, drafting legal documents, answer phones, maintain schedules, arrange mediation, coordinate with office staff...it really depends on where you work.
Child Support W/O Visitation?
I'M An Outsider Looking In..My Boyfriend Has A Child Whom He Doesn'T Get To See Because His Daughter'S Mother In Insecure And Out Of Her Mind. She'S Demanding Child Support (Just Started The Process) But Doesn'T Allow My Boyfriend To See His Daughter At All. He Hasn'T Seen Her Since This Last Summer When He Begged To Take Her For Her 3Rd Birthday And Before That He Hadn'T Seen Her Since Before Christmas Last Year. Can The Courts Really Make Him Pay Child Support W/O Any Visitation Rights?? He'S Her Father And She Doesn'T Even Know Who He Is Because He'S Not Allowed In Her Life For No Reason Other Than The Mother Is Jealous That He'S With Someone Else Other Than Her.. That'S The Only Reason- She'S Even Said It..
Child support and child visitation are completely SEPARATE issues. Even if you are ordered to pay support & don't, you still can't have your visitation taken away.
The father of the child is automatically entitled (with some exceptions) to visitation, regardless of whether he is paying child support or not. The main issue is to determine paternity first. If the mom & dad weren't married when the child was born, then a paternity test will be done. One the test is done (costs about $600 out of pocket) and the guy is proven to be the father, a temporary custody order will be made and visitation will begin. You'll go to court again later to establish official custody, support & visitation.
The court prefers to have the parents work out a visitation schedule amongst themselves because schedules made by the parties are more apt to be adhered to since the parents work within their schedules instead of relying on a judge's arbitrary assignment of time. There will be a temporary visitation order in place immediately so that the non-custodial parent can see the child while the "permanent" (can be changed) orders regarding the issues are being resolved.
You say that the mom hasn't allowed the dad to see his daughter, all he had to do was go to court & say he wanted to see the child. They would have helped him file & no lawyer is needed for this. As stated before, a paternity test would be given & visitation would begin immediately if he is the dad. The fact that he didn't do this before and just let the mom deny him visitation, will not look good to the judge should he be seeking physical custody of the child but if he is only seeking visitation, it won't be a major factor.
To answer your question, YES a court can & will order a non-custodial parent to pay child support even if he/she can't visit with the child BUT this occurs in VERY RARE instances. In order for someone to be denied visitation of a biological child, there must be a serious risk to the child. Even in cases where you have drug addicted violent felons as dads, the court will still grant visitation. The order may just carry some stipulations such as: drug testing, supervised visitation, parenting classes, anger management classes, etc. All in all, visitation in some form will be given unless that contact proves to be an extreme risk to the health & safety of the minor child.
On another note, it sounds as if your boyfriend acknowledges that he is the father of this child but you imply that he is not currently paying child support. You do not need a child support order to pay child support! He should have been paying at least something to the mom over the past few years Not diapers, toys, clothes, etc. He should have been writing a check (for records) and sending money regularly. Since he didn't, be prepared that (if he is the dad) the judge will issue a child support order but then he will also order payment for the 3 years since the child was born. Typically, this is lower than what his current order will be and it is usually payable in installments & attached to the support he will be giving weekly.
Since the mom has already began the proceedings, this issue will be resolved for your boyfriend pretty quickly. It will cost him a lot of money (paternity test, court costs, lawyer's fees, current & retroactive child support) but at least he will have a consistent visitation schedule in place & he can become an active & important part of his daughter's life. You can't put a price on that!
Best of luck
