I Live In Nj; During A Divorce Proceeding, My Nephew Had Been Accused By His Now Ex Wife Of Domestic Violence. However, Police Were Never Called To The Home, And He Nor His Now Ex Wife Had Ever Been In Front Of A Judge For A Complaint Of 'Domestic Violence.'
Can A Person Just Make The Claim That He/She Had Been A Victim Of Domestic Violence In A Divorce Court Without Ever Having To Go In Front Of A Judge, Or Ever Calling The Local Police, Or Ever Filing A Complaint Of Domestic Violence??
I'M Just Curious Of What Other People Think; This Case Had Already Been Closed...Divorce Already Finalized. I'Ll Provide What Transpired After I Receive At Least 5 Responses To This Question. Just Interested In Public Opinion...And What Other Lawyers May Believe..
The claim of domestic violence likely is to somehow collect more marital assets. Claiming it in this case is not like claiming it in a criminal case, were a person's guilt or non-guilt is being determined.
It is very common for both sides of a divorce to claim all sorts of things. They are entitled to claim whatever they want. However, the merit given to each statement varies based on evidence (for example, medical records showing contusions to the face, bruising on the upper arms, or police records as you mentioned). Without any evidence, the judge will only give the claim so much weight. At that point, it's up to how plausible it sounds and the judge's impression, which may be to throw it out altogether.
Legal Advice; Chronic Neck And Back Pain From Car Accident (1 Year Ago). How Can I Get All Expenses Covered?
3Herniated (Neck): 2 Buldges (Mid-Back) 3 Buldges, 1 Hernaition (Low Back). I Live In New York And My No-Fault Coverage Was Cut Off Around June. I Still Have Pain And I Am Still Taking Pain Meds (Percocet). I Haven'T Been Able To Work Due To The Pain And Depression That Has Set In Since I'Ve Also Rarely Left My House Since The Accident. The Lawyers Tell Me That I'M Only Entitled To The Minimum Settlement ($25,000) Since Both He And I Have The Minimum Coverage On Our Automobiles. The Accident Has Also Left Me Without An Atuomobile. My Lawyers Also Will Not Do An Assest Check On The Guy Who Crashed Into Me; One Reason Was Because The Guy Could Hide His Assests Once He Knew There Was A Check Being Ran (Total Nonsense Excuses). Am I Wrong In Thinking That My Lawyers Are Lying To Me (Not That Lawyers Are Known For Telling The Truth)? Is An Assest Check An Absurd Request For A 24 Year Old, Who Was In Excellent Shape And Mind Be4? More Money Would Be Nice, Expenses Is Goal!
Contrary to popular belief, lawyers HAVE TO tell the truth. If they do not, there can be severe penalties. I think that the stereotype arises because lawyers represent opposing parties so it always sounds like somebody is lying, it is the nature of the court process to have two versions of a story get presented. So as a first suggestion, I respectfully suggest that you lose the bad attitude, but listen to your instincts and if you are not happy with your lawyer's opinion, get a second opinion from a different lawyer.
You also may qualify for benefits from the Social Security Administration if you are disabled. This process can take awhile, but can end up resulting in a hefty retroactive award dated back to the date you filed. There are lawyers who specifically handle these types of cases, usually on a contingency fee, so you should consult with a lawyer who handles Social Security law to find out if this is an option for you.
Here is an article called "How to Find Legal Help When You Can't Afford It" which has links to legal resources, including attorney referral services, in every state:
And I agree that in general what your lawyer has said sounds odd, because what about wage garnishment, liens on personal or real property, tax refund intercepts, et cetera. However, I can't give you legal advice because the answer is dependent on the laws of your state and the specific facts of your case.
You may be able to find asset information on your own at this link (such as property records):
Unfortunately, if the guy who crashed into you only had minimum insurance, there simply may be no assets available. However, I don't know how easy it is to hide assets when it is done just to avoid liability - laws are different in every state so you need specific legal information and legal assistance to answer your question.
What Questions Do I Ask When Looking For A Lawyer To Hire?
My Dad Died In A Veterans Hospital At Age 52. The Cause Of Death On The Death Certificate Was Accidental Mixed Drug Overdose. What Do I Look For When Hiring Wrongful Death Lawyers? What Do I Ask? How Can I Tell If I Have A Good One?
You need to find a lawyer who specializes in medical malpractice cases. Find one who is board certified too b/c they have advanced training in that area. If you know a lawyer, ask them if they know someone who specializes in that. If you have board certification in your state, look for a board certified civil trial lawyer. I am a lawyer and know who is good in our state and who is not but I am not sure how lay people who are not lawyers can find out. If you ask a lawyer, ask them
1) how long they have been practicing and what their areas of specialty are. Avoid anyone out less than 10 years or someone who specializes in lots of things, like wills, divorces, dog bites - that means they do a little of everything and not a lot of medical malpractice work which is what you need.
2) how many trials have they personally tried, alone, to verdict. A lot of lawyers talk a big line but never really tried a case to verdict. You want someone who has tried a lot of malpractice cases to verdict.
3) ask if they ever litigated a case involving prescription overdoses and deaths and/or the VA?
4) what are the limits of recovery against the VA? And can the dr's who treated your dad be sued separately if they are at fault?
If they are good they are going to want a lot of information from you - like your dad's records- before deciding whether to take your case. Medical malpractice cases are very expensive to bring to trial for the plaintiff's attorney and they are going to want to make sure the case is worth their time before they sink $50,000 - $100,000 of their own money into the case.

Recommended Resource For Learning About Legal Self-Defense?
Hi, Some Questions I Have Are: 1 - Does The Principle Of "Obligation To Retreat" Apply To Self-Defense Only (If Someone Else Was In Danger Of Death At A Gas Station, Could Someone With A Conealed Pistol License Who Has The Gun In A Glove Box In A Car Outside Go Get The Gun And Use Lethal Force To Prevent The Apparent Armed Attack? 2 - If Attacked By Someone Without A Weapon (Punching/Kicking), Could The Defender Use An Aid Without Using Deadly Force (Like A Baseball Bat)? 3 - If Someone Is Walking Down An Ally Or Street, And Is Approached By More People Than Could Be Handled In An Attack (3-4 "Thugs"), Could The Defender Show The Pistol, And Even Use Deadly Force If The Group Does Not Cease To Advance? 4: If Someone Is Robbed At Gunpoint And Wisely Chooses Not To Draw A Concealed Weapon (Since That May Provoke The Attacker To Actually Shoot), Once The Attacker Withdraws And Turns Away, Can The Defender Then Show The Pistol, Insist That The Wallet Be Returned, And If The Attacker Points His Own Weapon, Use Deadly Force? In Addition To Your Answer, Do You Have A Recommended Resource Or Website That Defines "Legal Self-Defense" And The Defense Of Others Using "Justifiable Deadly Force", Preferably With Situation Examples? Thanks!
The doctrines the govern self-defense vary by state in both their content and their implementation.
For example, my state makes no mention of self-defense matters in written law whatsoever. The doctrines of self-defense are defined in caselaw and jury instructions. Why? Self-defense is simply an "excuse" (aka Affirmative Defense) raised when you've been arrested and are being tried. If in the above situations the police are never summoned, nothing happens. If they are summoned, in most the situations you mentioned, you would probably be arrested or at least taken to the police station, though in many of the cases you would be released.
I can address your questions in order though, based on caselaw I have reviewed and the doctrines of a my state as an example.
1. Duty to retreat in the majority of cases does not apply when defending another person.
2. The use of an weapon against an unarmed attacker can be justified but it limited to just enough force needed to stop them. I have two cases where a person with a knife defended themselves against larger unarmed opponents, and killed them (knives are deadly but have no stopping power). Both these people are now serving murder or manslaughter because they used DEADLY force against non-deadly threats when they have obvious avenues of escape (Their petty sense of "honor" made them confront another person needlessly)
3. Same as above, the pretense of multiple attackers makes the need for an equalizer justifiable. A large factor would be an expression of intent by the thugs ("We gon' kill you, @#$!" would be a threat of death, therefore brandishing a deadly weapon would likely be justified provided you could prove it to people who were not there at the time)
4. This is unlikely to be justifiable, as it is deadly force to retrieve simple property. Further, it is not very safe, considering the other person could fast draw and then you have a one-on-one gun battle. Bad news.
Most pistol training courses give excellent training on justifiable deadly force for the specific area one lives in. I would trust those over any website out there. Also, gunshop owners are mines of useful information on a lot of these laws, especially if the managers.
One last thing is the political climate of the courts in the area. The best resources on this are at your local courthouse. The caselaw library provides examples of situations and how the law ruled in them. And often, if you are a pretty smooth, talker, you can even talk to the SA or DA's Office about the subject, as their office is the one that decides whether to prosecute people.

How Do I Choose A Traffic Attorney? I Want To Win!?
I Have Been Doing A Lot Of Online Research On Different Traffic Attorney Lawyers Around My Area. I Got A Moving Violation And I Want To Fight It. I Also Really Want To Win It But How Can I Choose The Traffic Attorney That Will Get Me The Best Result? I'M Pretty Sure If I Contacted Any Of Them They Would All Tell Me The Same Thing. I'M In California, Court Is In Riverside County (Murrieta). Like Anyone Else, I Basically Want A Guarantee From The Lawyer That I Can Get A Ticket Dismissal Or The Very Least No Points On My Driving Record.
I Visited All Their Websites And They All Look Good! (That'S Obvious)
What Do Ya'Ll Think?
Should I Just Choose Any One Of Them Because It Won'T Really Make Much Of A Difference?
Is There A Very Reputable And Known Traffic Attorney That Can Give That Guarantee Confident Feeling Available? (That I Obviously Don'T Know About, Otherwise I Wouldn'T Be Asking)
If They Can Get Me Good Results, And I Mean Good As In Dismissal Or No Points, Then I Am Willing To Pay. I Think Every Individual In The World Should Fight Their Tickets. I Am Becoming More Of The Believer That The Justice System Is Only A Means Of Revenue. When I Break It Down And Really Think About It, It Doesn'T Make Sense. C'Mon...If It Did, Then I Wouldn'T Be A Repeat Offender Would I?
The Stupidest Things In This World: Insurance Companies, America'S Great Justice System...And Then The Irs. Just My Two-Cents.
No attorney is going to win your case for you unless you have a viable defense. If you have a valid defense, you probably do not need a lawyer to present it. No competent lawyer is going to "guarantee" a not guilty verdict, and the only way to avoid the points without any risk is traffic school.
Misty is in error in saying that the violation will be on your record if you are found not guilty (only convictions are reported to DMV), she is correct that an attorney is going to cost more than the violation. Increased insurance costs could justify the expense of an attorney, but unless you are ineligible for traffic school, traffic school is going to be cheaper and take less time than trying to contest this with a lawyer. (There is no such thing as "probation before judgment" in California.)
