Help, Need Legal Advice?
My Fiance'S Mentally Unstable Ex Girlfriend With Whom He Had A Child With (Unfortunately) Just Sent Him A Threatening Email Saying A Subpeona Is Coming His Way In The Mail. She Wants Him To Appear In Court Several States Away So He Can Give Up Legal Custody Of His Daughter. He Doesnt Want Anything To Do With Her And He Is Only 20 Working Minimum Wage So He Cant Pay Child Support. He Told Me She Had Previously Told Him She Could Take Full Custody With Or Without His Consent Or Presence Needed.
She Is Only Doing This To Him Because She Is Vengeful And Wants To See Him In Jail. She Was The Abusive One In Their Relationship
Can Someone Tell Me What Can My Fiance Do In Order To Avoid Having To Go To Court Several States Away Which Would Mean Him Missing A Week Of Work, Not Including Transportation Costs, And Face Court For Papers He Can Have Sent So He Can Sign Here?
First off, unless they have already gone to court on this, she already has sole custody & control of the child. Unmarried mothers have this be default at the time of the birth in every country except Germany, which was ordered to change their laws just two months ago by their Supreme Court. We are working on bringing the same thing before the US Supreme Court next year. Any attorney who has told her otherwise is defrauding her for legal fees.
As for the subpoena, it is likely also for child support, and if he accepts it, than he is accepting that state having jurisdiction over child support and he will have to go there to deal with it. If he doesn't, they will enter a default order, based on whatever info she provides on his income.
Regardless of how much he earns, he needs to be paying child support through the system. He needs to get his Royal A** down to Child Support Enforcement to set up a voluntary order, which is allowed under federal law.
Doing this will place jurisdiction in your state, forcing her to come there. Jurisdiction over all other issues goes to her state. If he wants to have access or custody rights, than he has to do that there, but for right now, get the support order setup. Note, that the subpoena for child support will also be retroactive back to the birth of the child. These links will teach him what to do and about child support.

Can An Employee Request An Employment Contract? If So, Can The Employee'S Attorney Produce One?
My Friend Recently Was Offered A Job At Another Firm (Company B). She Has Not Told Her Current Employer (Company A). When She Does, She Believes That Her Current Employer Will Make A Counteroffer As She Is A Valuable Employee. She Will Ask For A Promotion And Pay Raise But Wants Protection.
She Is Considering Making Company A Give Her An Employment Contract For 1 Year Which Guarantees Her Job (She Cannot Be Fired Or Laid Off) And Protects Her New Salary (Company Has Cut Salaries For All Employees).
I Think This Is A Great Idea But Is It? Who Normally Puts Together The Contract? Should She Let Her Employer Produce One Or Have Her Attorney? Any Advantages Or Disadvantages To This Idea? Thanks
Employment agreements are generally reserved for executive management positions (CEO, CFO, Department Heads). If she is an at will employee and is asking for promotion to another at will employment position it is highly unlikely that she will be able to negotiate for an employment agreement.
If the company has cut salaries for all employees, her expectations for a counteroffer sound overly optimistic, and as someone else indicated, even if a counteroffer were made, making a request for such an extraordinary accommodation as an employment agreement could very well backfire on her in such an environment. Assuming the company is even interested in making a counteroffer, the best she can probably expect is a letter of understanding confirming her new position and salary.
What Is The Best Undergraduate Program For International Law?
I Want To Go To Law School And Study International Law But I Need Help Choosing An Undergraduate Program. Any Suggestions?
I have graduated from law school and practiced law.
Good preparatory programs include Tufts and Georgetown, especially if you are able to take some graduate school courses in your senior year, but very honestly undergraduate instruction in international law will make little difference to your law school and post law school careers.
You will probably take no more than four classes in international law in law school due both to lack of time in your schedule and the number of classes offered, and that it is a high figure. Two or three is more likely.
Undergraduate work in the field will probably not make you better prepared for the law school classes as they do not assume undergraduate preparation by their students, and usually approach the subject very differently than is done at the undergraduate level.
More important factors in choosing an undergraduate school are cost and competitiveness.
NYU, Columbia, and Georgetown are certainly the best law schools for international law and all of them are very expensive. If money is an issue, you can receive fine pre-law preparation at your state university. Your immediate objective is preparing for selection by a top law school. However, remember that a 3.9 GPA from a state university looks better to most law school admission deans than does a 3.6 GPA from an "elite" undergraduate school.
I did not concentrate in international law, although I did take a class in it. In general, I found that my undergraduate degree in history was excellent preparation for law school as it taught the critical reading, thinking, and writing skills which are used in the study and practice of law. I majored in history and found my general history courses to be much more helpful for law school than the four undergraduate international relations classes which I took and I believe that I would have the same opinion if I had taken more international law classes in law school.
International law requires a broad undergraduate foundation, which is why, for practical purposes, the only useful instruction in it is given in law schools.
I do not recommend an undergraduate major in political science, international relations, etc. as the courses are ironically either too theoretical or too specific to be of much help in law school.
I do recommend attaining fluency in French (which with English is one of the two working languages of the United Nations) and in either Chinese or Arabic which will likely be the focus of international legal matters during the years of your career.
International law is a very competitive field and you will need top law school grades from a top law school to have career opportunities in it.
Massachusetts Custody Laws Without Custody Agreement?
What Are The Massachusetts State Laws Regarding Custody Of Children When There Is No Court Appointed Custody Agreement In Effect?????Does The Parent Also Have The Right To Keep The Child As Long As He/She Pleases And Do They Have To Abide By The Other Parents Guidline For Visitation When There Is No Custody Agreement?????
Without a custody agreement the parties would be controlled by a mutual agreement between the parties, in Mass you start on equal footing Custody/Visitation Overview
The care and control of a child is called custody. There are two parts to custody: legal custody and physical custody.
Legal custody of a child means having the right and the obligation to make decisions about a child’s upbringing – schooling, religion, medical care, etc.
Physical custody means that a parent has the right to have a child live with him or her.
Sole custody means only one of the parents makes decisions for the child.
At the outset, parents start with joint custody rights and responsibilities. Courts can determine custody and issue custody orders in a divorce or other proceeding involving the children.
Parents who don’t live together have joint custody (also called shared custody) when they share the decision-making responsibilities and/or control and custody of the children. Joint custody works well if you live near the other parent, as it lessens the stress on children and allows them to maintain a somewhat normal routine.
Disagreement over custody is almost guaranteed to put you right in the middle of a bitterly contested and expensive lawsuit. Custody cases are the cruelest and most destructive types of litigation. They are expensive both emotionally and financially.
Tx Family Law On One Joint Custody Parent Moving Children Out Of State.?
Below is Texas Family Law Code.
What do you mean by ... "one joint custody". Do you mean just joint custody .. meaning both of you ?
When joint custody exists .. permission has to be granted .. and it is best to have an agreement which is agreed on by both parties - presented to the Judge, and signed by the Judge - so their will be no future problems ... OR .. if an agreement cannot be reached between both parents - then present the problem to the Judge.
