Has Anyone Ever Started Divorce Proceedings During A Particulary Stressful Time?
Other Than The Marraige Crumbling.....That Is. We All Know That'S A Stressful Time In Itself. I'Ve Been Unhappy In My Marriage For Over A Year Now. My Husband Works Long Distance And Slowly Seems To Have Injected Himself Into Living Where His Job Is Now. He'S A Nurse So A Job Is Possible Anywhere.... But, It Seems To Be An Inconvenience For Him To Come Back Home To Our Home Town. (No He'S Not Cheating)
Long Story Short. We Don'T Share The Same Core Values As I Thought We Once Did. I'M Ready For A Divorce. However, My Mom Was Just Diagnosed W/Cancer 2 Weeks Ago...My Husband Has Not Come Home To Support Me During This Time. He Says If He Does He'S Out Of His School Program. (U Can Only Miss 4 Days Apparently) Is It Impossible Or Even Nutz Of Me To Think That I Can Start The Ball Rolling On This And Still Be There To Support My Mom 100%. I Do Value My Family As My Husband Doesn'T Seem To.
It seems to me that he has lost interest in you and your marriage. Just going by what you said, it seems that he could make some type of arrangements with his boss to come home(or transfer to a different hospital) etc. If he is taking a class I think you can talk with your professor and tell him the situation and get a little bit of time off here and there. If he really cared it looks like he would ask..... It is really hard when you do not share the same values. You tend to lose a close connection when you are apart for a long time. If he really wanted to be home it seems he could get a job closer to home. I find it rather strange for him to pick a job so far away from his home and set up residence there..... If you are truly serious about a divorce you need to see a lawyer and get the ball rolling. It is possible to see a lawyer and sign papers etc. and still be there for your mom. First you will meet with him and tell him what the situation is. Then you will probably discuss what you want in the divorce. He will serve your husband the papers and then you will have a court date. Unless your husband shows his butt about something imparticular it should go smoothly..... It can be discouraging when your husband does not seem to care that you are worried and concerned about your mother. I would talk to him first and see what his thoughts are on all of it. You may find out that he is living another life where he is and will not be very worried about any of it. Good luck with your decision and I will be keeping your Mother in my prayers :)
Difference Between Legal Advice And Common Sense?
My Law Friends Mentioned Something I Said Might Be Conferred As Legal Advice???
So What Exactly Is The Difference? Or Can It Just Be Anything Said That Might Lead To A Consequence Which May Come Back To Haunt Me?
In the US only licensed attorneys can give legal advice. The problem is that no one (even the American Bar Association) has a good definition of legal advice. You should generally avoid anything along the lines of "you should...." unless that phrase is followed directly by "get a lawyer" because it could be construed as legal advice. If you have questions about where exactly the line falls you need to speak with your supervisor or a teacher or professor so you don't find yourself on the wrong side of the law.
How Can I Help A Relative In Jail On Trumped Up Charges For Two Years Going On Three In Jamaica Despite Lawyer After Lawyer, And Bail.?
My Relative Is A Police Officer In The Jamaica Constabulary Force. He Has Been Thrown In Jail On Trumped Up Charges On The Island Of Jamaica. Every Time A Charge Is Beaten, A New One Is Introduced. When He Goes To Court, They Are Never Ready To Present Anything Incriminating, And Keep Asking For More Time. He Has Been In Jail For 2 Years. His Lawyer Has Not Been Helpful, And I Believe The Lawyer May Be A Part Of The Corruption In The Government. He Has Been Offered Bail For Two Of The Charges Against Him, And Is Still Being Held Unjustly. The Excuse Is That They Cannot Find His Passport, Which Was Collected Upon His Arrest, And Which They Referenced When Attempting To Get Bail For Him. When They Finally Decided They Would Let Him Out, Instead He Was Visited In His Cell With Another Charge. This Same Injustice Tactic Has Been Used To Hold Other Inmates In The Gun Court Remand Center Indefinitely Until Their Family Has Died Or Given Up. My Relative Also Has Young Children That Are Without A Father On Top Of The Fact That They Were Already Without A Mother. Please Urgently Advise. Any Advice Is Great. Financial, Legal, Etc.
Your relative needs legal help that he is not receiving from his lawyer. If you can help him find another lawyer instead, this may be the best thing you could do. In addition, the united nations has a human rights organization, which you may contact as follows: Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights, Palais des Nations, 8-14 avenue de la paix, ch-1211 Geneva 10, Switzerland. Web site: www.ohchr.org. email: firstname.lastname@example.org. Or, you can try contacting Amnesty International, an organization founded to promote human rights and protect people from being wrongly imprisoned. You can find a lot on line, good luck, Dr.S
Where Can I Find A Special Lawyer?
In 2004 I Was On Social Security For Adhd And Had To Go In Front Of An Alj (Administrative Law Judge). In Less Than 35-40 Min They Found I Was Competent Enough To Handle My Own Affairs. I Definitley Was Not In A Position To Make Clear And Decisive Decisions On My Own Affairs As '04 Was A Very Difficult Time In My Life As I Was Not Being Properly Treated For Adhd And Had No Idea Where To Find A Lawyer To Represent Me And My Case.
Call your local bar association's lawyer referral service and ask for a referral to a lawyer who specializes in Social Security law. They generally provide free or low-cost consultations. You will not have to pay the lawyer anything for representing you. They are paid from your recovery and only if you win.

Yes, they are expensive, but with something like this you need one.
Question For Legal Assistants And Law Clerks!?
I'M Looking To Get Into The Field And Would Love Some Advice: How'D You Get Started? Did You Have Any Education That Helped You Get Into The Field Or Just Start? What Do You Think Of Your Jobs? What Are The Hardest/Easiest Things You Do?
Regarding being a Legal Assistant and/or a Law Clerk: Employers (usually law firms) in the field of Law today want employees with >>>BACHELORS degrees from traditional colleges/universities.
THE hardest thing about this vocational field is finding a job. There are already simply way too many Legal Assistants and Law Clerks. There just are no available jobs in this field.
Choosing a career is one of life's most important and difficult decisions.
We simply already have way too many Legal Professionals. AND the legal profession is dramatically changing; it is in absolute CRISIS!!! Job searching in this vocational field has changed >>DRAMATICALLY<< in the last five years. And, every year, more and more people graduate from law school, but there are fewer and fewer jobs. Even the largest and most reputable law firms are experiencing unprecedented cutbacks. I don't expect the situation to improve in the coming years.....
Be aware of what you are proposing on getting yourself into. Please do more research first. Reminder: We are STILL in a World-wide Recession. Consider career paths that have available JOBS.<<<<< Even in a Recovery, there are some jobs that just won't return - the field of Law won't make a comeback. Too many things have changed.
Warning> Jobs in the field of Law are drying up fast!! This no longer is a good field to invest time and/or money into. This is a SHRINKING, crumbling, and dying vocational field. Many, many reasons. We now have computers. So, many people today (mistakenly) think they can do their own legal work, thanks to the Internet and legal books. Also, there are a lot of companies out there making very efficient legal software for the field of Law. Today's graduating lawyers tend to be very computer savvy, so they just do the work themselves to save themselves the cost of overhead. Also, the "Public" buys this legal software and law books in order to get legal work done without the cost of an Attorney. Also, we simply already have way too many Legal Professionals - we just have an absolute glut!! ("Legal Professionals" includes, but is not limited to: Attorneys/Lawyers, Paralegals, Legal Assistants, Legal Secretaries, Bailiffs, Court Reporters, etc, etc)
Sites like legalzoom.com have taken away work that many small-time attorneys/lawyers would do/used to do.
The field of Law has a mystique that actually exceeds reality. The field of Law is an overrated career - mostly by television.<< There are many myths regarding the field of Law: *myth: working as a Lawyer is mentally challenging (Actually, most work as an attorney involves mountains of routine paperwork: research, cite checking, drafting documents, and document review. Attorneys need to write down and track EVERY activity they do, all day long [in 6 to 15 minutes increments, depending on the billing system] - a painstaking but necessary task), *myth: being an attorney is thrilling, high-powered, and glamorous (remember: television is FICTION - the fictional lawyers on TV are ACTORS - the majority of work that an attorney does, does not happen in a courtroom), *myth: law students think that because they are good at arguing they will become great attorneys (actually being a great attorney is more in one's ability to mediate between differing sides and bringing them to agreement/compromise), *myth: as a lawyer I can correct injustices (actually legal decisions are more about reaching compromises than about right vs. wrong), *myth: guaranteed financial success (actually when salaries are compared, you also need to account for cost-of living expenses [most large law firms are in large cities - the bigger the city, the more cost-of-living expenses will be], payment of debts accrued while attending law school, and time needed to build a client base. Many large law firms require lawyers to work 60-80 hours per week.).
Cost of law school to be lawyer, approx $150,000+. Be prepared to take on a LOT of debt, if becoming an attorney is your "true", ultimate goal!!<<<<<
There are no jobs in this vocational field. My family, coworkers, friends, acqaintances, etc. have been laid off left and right in this vocational field.
Regarding being a Legal Assistant and/or a Law Clerk: Employers (usually law firms) in the field of Law today want employees with >>>BACHELORS<<< degrees from traditional colleges/universities. Those "certificates" you see advertised aren't worth the paper they are printed on - they are generally scams. (>>I found this out the hard way.) Also, the law school's program needs to be accredited by the American Bar Association - if it isn't, you are just wasting your time/money.
Even if you finish law school, you won't be able to find a job when you are done. Since this vocational field is shrinking (at an alarming rate), many new attorneys/lawyers are, themselves, having to work "down" as Paralegals, Legal Assistants, Legal Secretaries, Bailiffs, Court Reporters, etc, etc, to simply try to keep some of their bills paid <<this would be your competition. And the competition is fierce!
Now... the law schools know this, but they won't tell you the truth >that the job market/economy is just SATURATED with way too many Legal Professionals. Instead the schools will feed you a fairytale and will LIE to you. The root of the problem is we already have too many law schools. We are STILL in a Recession, and the schools are fighting for their own survival - they will tell students anything to get to the students' money. (Which is why they won't tell you the truth about the job market for the field of Law.) And these schools continue to recruit and churn out even more graduates.............Remember>>> law schools are BUSINESSES - their TOP concern is making money for themselves.
>>>>>THE MOST IMPORTANT THING (and I can't stress this enough>>>): You ESPECIALLY have to beware of the bogus, inflated law school salary/job stats given out by law schools AND by the U.S. Bureau of Labor!!!*****
If you don't believe me, then just do a SEARCH here on Yahoo Answers to see what other posters are saying about the current status of the field of Law. Call some local law firms - ask to speak to the Manager of Human Resources - ask them if they are hiring; ask them what they think about future job availability in the field of Law..................
In the book "So You Want to be a Lawyer?" by Marianne Calabrese and Susanne Calabrese (ISBN 0-88391-136-1): "The United States has more lawyers than any other country in the world. About 38,000 students graduate >each year< from the 200+ law schools in the United States. The competition is very keen for jobs and clients." - Even Associate Justice Antonin Scalia (who served on the U.S. Supreme Court for more than 20 years) says there are too many lawyers. (9/14/2008)

If you want a job when you are done with your studies, consider and look into the fields of: >>>Healthcare, Information Technology, Law ENFORCEMENT, environmentalism, emergency planning, accounting, education, entertainment, utilities, home-car-commercial-industrial repairs, vice industries, clergy, and/or debt collection. I spoke to a career counselor from Jobs and Family Services, and HE told me that these areas are where the jobs are, and future job opportunities/availability....and scholarships.
