I Need A Serious Answer... Preferably Legal Advice...?
I Am 23 Years Old And I Never Lived With My Father. He Would Send My Mom Some Money Under The Books Each Month And We Never Filed For Child Support. Would We Be Able To Take Him To Court For All The Years Of Unpayed Child Support Or Is It Too Late? Not To Mention, He Has Been A Doctor My Whole Life And Owes Us Way More Than He Used To Send Us Each Month. Please Advise?
First, one is only legally permitted to provide legal advice if he/she is licensed in that state. Any opinions set forth below are merely ideas/guidelines based upon basic principals followed in the majority of states, and should not be construed as legal advice. For legal advice, you should consult with an attorney licensed in your state.
Having said that, you need to check the statute of limitations for child support actions in your state. You have been an adult for five years, and my guess is that the statute of limitations has expired.
If the statute of limitations has not expired, you need to talk to your attorney about the proper method of obtaining child support for all 18 years of your minority.
As with most rights, they can be waived either intentionally (or unintentionally). The statute of limitations is intended to prevent claims from being asserted long after the damage has been done, and to allow all sides a fair opportunity to present their case without the evidence becoming too stale. There are a very very limited number of exceptions to the statutes of limitations, none of which would appear to apply in your case. You should, however, consult with an attorney, for if your claim is not barred, the amount at stake could be substantial.
Slip And Fall After Knee Surgery?
I Had Knee Surgery With A Femoral Block And Never Got Crutches After Later That Night I Fell Going To The Bathroom And Caused More Damage To My Knee And Other Injuries. I Was Told To Talk To A Slip And Fall Attorney Would That Be Correct?
Depends on where you fell and why. In many knee surgeries crutches are no longer prescribed as they delay healing. If you fell due the negligence of the owner of the bathroom, i.e. spilled liquid on the floor and did not clean it or post a warning, you could sue them for the cost of any further injury as well as pain and suffering. If you just fell because you fell, there is no one to blame but yourself.
If it was because of negligence, you will have to prove the negligence, as well as quantify the cost of any further surgeries,additional lost work, and how you suffered as a result. Unless you had to go to the hospital and have an emergency surgery as a result of the fall, and can prove negligence, the case is probably not worth most attorneys time. These cases are very hard to prove, and unless you have several thousand in immediate hospital bills and extended time away from work as a result, they are not worth taking. Most Slip and Fall attorneys will work on contingency and not take a case unless its a slam dunk and will make them a lot of money. If you hire a non-contingency attorney, they are more likely to take your case, but if you loose, you will be out a lot of money in legal fees.
What Are The Top 5 Reasons To Be A Lawyer? Top 5 Reasons To Go To Harvard Law?
I Need To Know The Top 5 Reasons To Be A Lawyer And The Top 5 Reasons To Go To Harvard Law School. Please Help! Thanks!
I graduated from Harvard Law back in May. So, let me give you some insight.
Top 5 reasons to be a lawyer:
I used to think it was all about helping people, but please, work in the field for a few months and you will realize that it's all about money and reputation. Do not get me wrong, I love when I can help clients obtain what they are looking for, however, even your own clients are all about money. I would be LYING if I said it was to "save the world" and to "fix our judicial system" that is fairy-tale talk.
Top 5 Reasons to go to Harvard Law:
1) Money (how much you will make after)
3) Quality of education
4) High prospects (job offers)
5) ALL OF THE ABOVE
Now, let me give you the real deal. Law school WILL NOT prepare you to be a lawyer. Law schools prepares your brain to think logically, and to learn how to read and comprehend the law. You will use less than 10% of your knowledge from law school in your field. Don't let anyone else fool you.
Getting into Harvard is very........very hard. I had a 3.9 GPA from Columbia University, and a 176 on my LSAT's. In undergrad, I was in a sorority, captain of the debate team, president of the history club, english club, and student body officer. I was also the president of my graduating class. I did this in 3 years at columbia. Meaning, I went to summer school each year so I could graduate early.
I applied to Yale, and got rejected. Yet, I had better grades and credentials than another student who was accepted to Yale. It's all a crapshoot when you are applying with thousands of other students who have done as much as you have. Once I was rejected to Yale, I was certain that I would not be accepted to Harvard. However, as luck has it, they spotted something in me that triggered them to believe I was a good candidate.
I graduated Summa c-u-m (that word is censored) laude. I was on law review, civil procedure trial team, criminal clinical trials, tort trial team.
You can earn great money if you go to a mediocre school, but it will be much much harder, and you must be at the top 5% of your graduating, and there is a chance you may not even reach 6 figures even if that happens. However, the politics at Ivy League Schools works this way: Top students will earn well......WELL over 6 figures because of the name we have stamped on our Degrees. It's not fair, but that's how our world spins round'.
Anyhow, I hope I have helped.
How Do I Get Background Information On Lawyers?
I Need A Descent Lawyer For A Child Custody Case Is There Any Way To Check Lawyers Credentials??? And How Theo Do In Court With Their Cases?
The State Supreme Court and the Bar Association can provide you with a list of complaints on attorneys. But, as far as how well or how often they won such cases is interpretive based different factors:
Available evidence in each case;
Whether the other parent fought for custody;
The quality of the other parent's legal representation; etc.
You need to interview several attorneys and take notes. Don't ask any of them about your case, just what their qualifications are. Get a feel for who you're most comfortable with. Get a list of the complaints on them, and there will be complaints, regardless of how good they are. People who win are not always complete satisfied with their win and file complaints against the attorney.
Pick out 3-4 from those you interviewed than go back and tell them about your case, again taking notes.
None of this time with the attorneys should cost you anything. If they want to charge for it, walk away. After the second round of interviews, choose your attorney from the results.
