4 Ways To Help Your Lawyer Help You If you want a legal representative for any reason, you need to work closely using them as a way to win your case. Regardless of how competent they can be, they're gonna need your help. Listed here are four important strategies to help your legal team enable you to win: 1. Be Totally Honest Or Higher Your lawyers need and expect your complete cooperation - whatever information you're gonna reveal in their mind. Privilege means whatever you say is stored in confidence, so don't hold anything back. Your legal team needs to know everything in advance - most especially information other side could check out and surprise you with later. 2. Provide Meticulous Records Keep a continuing and factual account of information regarding your case. Whether it's witnesses or payments being made, provide your attorneys with the data they must assist them to win. 3. Show Up Early For Many Engagements Never be late when you're appearing before a court and get away from wasting the attorney's time, too, by being by the due date, each and every time. In fact, because you may need to discuss last second details or be extra ready for the way it is you're facing, it's a good idea to arrive early. 4. Demonstrate Which You Have Your Act Together If you've been arrested for any sort of crime, it's important in order to prove to the court that you simply both regret the actions and are making strides toward boosting your life. For instance, if you're facing a DUI, volunteer for the rehab program. Be sincere and associated with the community the judge is presiding over. Working more closely with your legal team increases your chances of absolute success. Follow these tips, listen closely to how you're advised and ultimately, you must win your case.

How Is California'S Community Property Law Different From Wisconsin'S Marital Property Law?
Community property has as its basis that everything that is gained during the marriage belongs equally to both partners. (There are exceptions but that is the basic idea.) So when there is a divorce, each gets half of the property and they each go their own way. (Kids get child support, but that is not part of the divorce law, that is child support.) With each getting half, it is over. They need no reason to see each other again as neither owes anything to the other.
Wisconsin is not a community property state. When a divorce comes it is generally assumed one partner makes more money than the other, one gave up more than the other to make the marriage work. In general the woman is given some of the property and the man has to pay alimony. Because there is still a tie between the two, they frequently are back in court time and time again as the man fails to pay the alimony, or the woman gets married again, etc.
Many couples try to get around all this by having a prenuptial agreement. They agree ahead of time that if divorce comes they will divide up the property in a certain manner. For example, if the woman has $40 million then she may have in the agreement that the husband gets none of that money. Such an agreement would be valid in any state, regardless of the marriage law. That is because contract law is valid in all 50 states.

AUSTRALIAN NATIONAL STATE
The Roots of Australian Nationalism
National Republicans revere Henry Lawson as a founding father of our faith. Here we look at Lawson from yet another angle: his conception of the "old" imperial Australian State and his vision of a National State for Australia. Modern issues abound.
When Henry Lawson died in 1922, his Sydney funeral became a State funeral with the participation of thousands. This epitome of the national consciousness, a man lauded as the poet laureate of Australia, had died in miserable hardship, the victim of alcohol and despair.
The Australia which feted Lawson goodbye had altered from the land of patriotic writers and republican and labour activists of the 1880s and 1890s, of those who sought the 'national promise' in a Working Man's Paradise, in an Independent National State. Australia had become a fretful country with a people in fear of unseen Bolshevik demons and dominated by an imperial business-banking class prepared to organise dire violence in defence of its privileges and wealth. At Lawson's graveside stood Jack Lang, the Nationalist ALP leader, who 10 years later, would be struck down by the Establishment.
The great English novelist, D.H. Lawrence, gave a glimpse of this 1920s Australia in his 1921 classic - Kangaroo. This work was an expose of the "conservative" secret armies forming across the land; he described Australia:
"...out of the silver paradisiacal freedom untamed, evil winds could come, cold like a stone hatchet murdering you. The freedom, like everything else, has two sides to it. Something like a heavy reptile hostility came off the sombre land, something gruesome and infinitely repulsive...it was as if the silvery freedom suddenly turned and showed the scaly back of the reptile and the horrible jaws..."
Henry Lawson had fought this "system" of "two faced democracy" in its infancy; 1990s Australia lives under it in its fullest maturity. As we seek our road to National Independence against a new internationalist business elite, we return to Lawson for essential inspiration.
Lawson's nationalism: A Bibliography of Verse and Prose
For those seeking a deeper appreciation of Australian Nationalism, we have provided a selective 'bibliography' of Lawson's poetry and prose under explanative subject headings. Lawson's concerns and his general perspectives thus place his theory of the state into sharp relief; Lawson's political program dictated his view of the state.
1) Eureka Stockade and the Southern Cross Flag
Lawson understood the deep historical and cultural significance of the Eureka Stockade Rebellion (1854) and its revolutionary patriotic emblem of the Southern Cross. It was the banner for an era of crisis and change.
(a) Eureka - a Fragment (1887)
(b) Flag of the Southern Cross (1887)
(c) The Fight at Eureka Stockade (1890)
(d) Australia's Forgotten Flag (1911).
2) Australia's Danger from Asia
Lawson appreciated that European Australia would in the future be under threat - military and economic - from Asia. His defence of European-Australian cultural identity and freedom was uncompromising; a major aspect of the national identity would come to defined in this struggle.
(a) Star of Australia (1895).
(b) In the Storm that is Yet to Come (1904).
(c) Nemesis (1904).
(d) The Vanguard (1905).
(e) For Australia (1905).
(f) Australia's Peril: The Warning (1905).
(g) To Be Amused (1905).
(h) The Song of Australia (1908).
3) Lawson's Patriotic Faith in the Australian promise
Lawson wrote at enormous length of the character of the land, its people, of the quality of Nationalism and of its vast potential to realise a great new Independent National Society. The following works are a few expressions of this faith.
(a) The Roaring Days (1889).
(b) Australian Loyalty (1887).
(c) As Ireland Wore the Green (1891).
(d) In the Days When the World Was Wide (1894).
(e) The Men Who Made Australia (1901).
(f) Waratah and Wattle.
4) An Australian Republic
Lawson was aware that to achieve independence, identity and a just social order, a Republic was the only state form possible for Australia; the Republic would grow from the cultural revolution and upheaval necessary to effect such dramatic change.
(a) A Song of the Republic (1887).
(b) The Statue of Our Queen (1890).
(c) The English Queen (1892).
5) A New People's Social Order
Lawson stood on the side of the ordinary Australian workers, farmers and productive middle classes; he recognised that young, wealthy, Australia endured shocking injustices. It was subject to a capitalist industrial and banking class with international connections; a revolution would overturn the economic order and a mixed state, private and co-operative economic system would supercede capitalism.
(a) Faces in the Street (1888).
(b) Army in the Rear (1888).
(c) Freedom on the Wallaby (1891).
(d) The Rebel (1891).
(e) The Old Rebel Flag in the Rear (1892).
6) The Internationalist Class State - the National State
Lawson possessed a talent for analysis. Before reviewing Lawson's analysis of Australian State power and his prescription for change, the reader can be referred to:-
(a) Nationality in Colonisation (1890).
(b) The Patriotic League (1891).
(c) Cromwell (1910).
(d) The House of Fossils (1892).
(e) A Leader of the Future (1893).
(f) The 'Lay'Em Out Brigade' (1892).
(g) The King of Our Republic (1910).
It is these works in which this article is chiefly interested. The Australian Nationalist ideology is nought if it does not aspire to state power, analyse and criticise that which is the "Australian" State and have a blueprint for a new Australian National State.
Lawson's Analysis of the "State" in Australia
Lawson did not have that "reverence" for the State common amongst 19th century Europeans. Quite the contrary: "the State" in Australia (and this included the government of the six colonies and the "Federal" construct of 1901) was the British Imperial State; it was this State through its local proxies which denied Australian independence and identity and which exploited the country economically, excluding the people from the full fruits of labour (what has changed?). The local capitalist class has always been international; firstly it was "imperial", and today it is "Asian", in sympathy. The State as founded in Australia as an "imperial" entity was Lawson's immediate enemy.
The colonial position of Lawson's Australia demanded a paradoxical Nationalism:
- an anti-authoritarian people's struggle to disintegrate the Old State and its injustices -
The was the first step, but to carry out the protection of the Nation from external dangers and to achieve its modernisation: (Australian Engineers)
- a strong but popular State would be the instrument for the conquest of freedom, wealth, independence and identity. (The King of our Republic: Cromwell)
Lawson wrote to the Imperial State in crisis:
The capitalist state was ruled by a fake democracy in a parliament:
"and tho' it shelters property and helps prop up the crown
I think it's time the toilers pulled the old museum down."
(House of Fossils 1892)
The Old State relied upon a false "patriotic" idea and would occasionally create "conservative" groups in its support:
"They took to gloss a base intrigue
A name that was demotic
They stole a name and formed a league
and called it patriotic
They've resurrected ancient lies
The world had most forgotten
The liars think the world will rise
To back a cause that's rotten." (The patriotic League 1891)
Lawson glimpsed at the falsity of "patriotic" Federation leagues as forces which did not deliver independence; he would almost certainly have grasped the essence of New Guards and Old Guards in the 1930s as 'imperial Patriots' who guaranteed finance-industrial capital (and by applying his method we can reckon modern day "republicanism" as a con to achieve "integration with Asia"). Lawson's astuteness grew from his reliance on first principles - his vision "Australia for Australians". Lawson's method should be our own.
Lawson's programme for a New State
Lawson was of course not a political theorist; rather, he was the voice of an "Australian sentiment" who put to words the yearnings of the radical Nationalists of his day. His task was to articulate (i) what it meant to be Australian, (ii) the attack upon Australianism by the wealthy classes and (iii) the call to national resistance. Nonetheless Lawson left us a sketch for an Australian National State (which the modern Nationalists are called upon to elaborate). Lawson's works give us his programme:
Australia would be a Republic with 'equality' of duties and obligations. The State would rest upon a universally armed population. The State would rest (as a result of social revolution) upon the productive classes in a new organisation ( although Lawson does not tell us how this aspect of the National State would be organised). The president would possess executive power but would be no dictator. The State would play a development role and protect the cultural heritage. The State would thus be a development-culture motor led by a national elite; but it would recognise and cherish its popular base and its roots in the people. The State, nourished by its myth of pioneer sacrifice would value the family and the woman's worth.
It is by no means surprising that Nationalists in the 1990s recognise this 100 year old program as an echo of their own. Details may differ; spirit does not.
A National State
The new Australian Nationalism would dispose of the asianising liberal-capitalist State (or 'machine' of violence against our Australian People) and create a State, articulated to represent the whole Nation. Lawson's organic concept of the Nation is our perspective.
The Nation is a living entity composed of productive classes, natural institutions and 'directed' by a State issuing from the organic facts. Lawson however warned the Nationalists of yesteryear the Old State would resist the future. Lawson wrote:
"When first this rum old world began to suffer for its sins
The tyrant and the Rebel rose, and they, we know were twins
The Rebel was "more numerous" and he and greed were foes
And so to keep him in his place the hired assassin arose
Thus when the first foundation stone of Mammon-tower was laid
The wealthy idlers organised the 'Lay'Em Out brigade'"
(The Lay'Em Out Brigade 1892)
Our 1990s Australia with 'Left' gangs, political police, Human Rights Commissions, lying media and legislative penalties-against-patriotism tells us how the State has developed into a vast machine of manipulation and repression.
But Henry Lawson left us also that other guarantee of our National State - he was the first Australian to cherish the spirit of Audacity and rebellion born at Eureka Stockade, to put what it meant into words.
It is up to us to put the words into practice.
Legal Assistance For Military Divorce?
When My Husband Deployed, He Sent Me Home To Live With My Parents And Has Not Supported Me Financially At All. We Don'T Share A Bank Account And I Have Very Little Legal Control With The Power Of Attorney Papers He Had Done Before Leaving. I Do Not Have Access To His Accounts Or Anything. Since Leaving, He Became Distant And After A Month, Revealed That He Wanted A Divorce. We Agreed To Keep It Civil And Between Us. I Did Speak To The Fra Assigned To His Company, To Make Sure That There Was A Record Of What Was Going On. I Recently Came Across Proof Of An Affair And A Lot Of Not-So-Appropriate Messages Between Him And Numerous Girls. I Haven'T Gotten A Lot Of Information/Resources From Family Readiness, Which Is Why I Am Bringing My Situation Here, Hoping Someone May Have Experience With Something Like This. We Don'T Have Kids Or Own A Home. It Should Be A Pretty Clean Split, However, I Want To Get Whatever I Am Entitled To. Prior To This Revelation, I Didn'T Want Anything From Him. I Work Full Time But Am Having A Hard Time Getting On My Feet. I Sold My Car Before Moving Across The Country To Live With Him, And Now I Am Living At The Mercy Of My Parents, Staying In Their Home And Using Their Car....Not A Good Feeling As An Adult, But I Am Grateful For The Support. Anyway, I Feel Like I Have Been Used And Strung Along, Quite Likely For The Money (Over $2000+) He Is Making Just For Being Married To Me. I Don'T Live On Or Near A Military Base. I Was Advised To Get A Paralegal. Can I Go To Any Military Installation (Any Branch) To Receive Legal Assistance, Or Would It Have To Be A Marine Corps Base? What Am I Entitled To/What Are My Rights As A Dependent? My Hands Are Completely Clean, I Was An Honest, Faithful Wife (Despite The Stereotype) And Have Been Used And Lied To By My Husband. I Know There Has To Be Something Legally Wrong With What My Husband Is Done, I Just Want To Make Sure That He Has To Take Responsibility For It.
There is a Military subcategory here in Y!A (under Politics & Government)...copy your post there and see if someone has more insight...also, contact your local base legal office and ask them the questions as far as if they can advise you even if your husband is in a different branch of service (I believe they can, but I am not sure)...
Not sure what you are entitled to since you didn't mention how long you'd been married, but I can't imagine the military would look favorably upon someone who was deployed but not supporting his spouse in any way (financially)...
I hope it all works out fairly for you...
I M Indian Lawyer Wants To Register In American Bar Association?

3.Is There Any Exam Which If I Take Will Let Me Practice Law In Usa.

You should consider taking a bar course, they are offered all over the place. Legal education in India is equally rigorous, it may take a little longer for you to pass, but if you study hopefully you will.
Law school does not prep US students for the bar. They ALL take prep courses (even the ones that lie about it).
Texas Legal Wills?
Does Anyone Know Of A Good Website To Order Texas Legal Wills From?
I can't give you any websites, but I do need to tell you that many of the websites which porport to provide you with do-it-yourself wills are practicing law without a license.
Those who provide you with a pre-printed form with blanks are doing you a disservice.
While it is LEGAL to write your own will, its extremely foolish to do so. The laws of inheritance vary greatly from state to state, and its very difficult for software manufacturers to keep up with the changes in the law... for often the change isn't enacted by the legislature but is a ruling by a court.
When buying a fill-in-the-blank form, you are not availing yourself of the knowledge and experience of an attorney. A simple will shouldn't cost more than $200 to $300, and you will save yourself and your heirs a lot of time and money and headaches.
For a referral to an attorney, contact your local or state bar association.
Foster Care Adoption Lawyer Questions?
I Deleted My Last Question, As It Was Poorly Worded.
We Are Foster-To-Adopt Parents. We Have Had The Child In Our Care For A Year. Both Parents' Rights Have Been Terminated 'Unofficially' By The State At Birth (Abuse/Neglect). To Make It Official In Our State, There Must Be A Tpr Hearing.That Hearing Is Scheduled For This Month. Once That Hearing Is Completed, We (Foster-To-Adopt Parents) Are Required To Find And Hire A Lawyer To Proceed With The Adoption Petition.
So, My Question:
I Know That The Court Determines When The Case Is Scheduled For The Most Part, But Will Our Choice In Lawyers Speed Up Or Significantly Slow Down The Process? Like, If We Pay More Money Or Seek Out A Certain Lawyer Who Claims More Experience/Expediancy, Will That Actually Speed Up The Process, Or Is It All Ultimately The Timing Of The Courts And Not The Lawyer?
Thank You For Any Insight You Can Provide!
If you live in a jurisdiction that falls within a Metro area where it is "just busier" and the court docket is full....then obviously the court can play a huge roll in getting the final hearing scheduled....
In my experience, the lawyer plays a VERY BIG roll in how long it takes. I have seen adoptions finalize within a week of my initial meeting to disclose information on the child/ren....and I have seen others take months; all due to the choice in attorney.
I would ask the worker which attorneys in your area they know of that has completed adoptions.....the worker is aware of some I am sure, whether they will tell you is something entirely different.
Also, you can pay a huge amount of money for a cRaP attorney or a very small sum for an awesome attorney. Their priorities sometimes are not yours so don't think more money=better quality/timeliness.
