Sister- In - Law Taking Power Of Attorney?
My Husband Is An Advanced Alcoholic And Drug User. We'Ve Been Separated For 8 Months Now After A 24 Year Marriage. His Mother And Sister Have Always Disliked Me. Now They Have Proof Of Why!
I Am The Cause Of His Addictions... So They Believe.
I Am Not Out To Ruin My Husband, I Just Want To Be Safe. Addiction Is A Terrible! I Am So Sorry For My Husband, But Know That I Cannot Help Him In Any Way. The 'Side Effects' Of Adultery And Abuse Are Too Damaging For Me To Be The Supporting Partner I'Ve Always Believed I Was. (So Ignorant...)
We Are In The Middle Of Divorce. He Lost His Very Good Job The Second Week Of December Because Neither He Nor His Girlfriend Bothered To Tell His Employer He Was Going Into Detox (Fourth Time In Rehab In A Year...) So That'S Very Suspect Because He Always Took Great Care In Not Losing His Job. It Is Even More Suspect That It Happened Shortly After The Judge Ordered Spousal Maintenance For Me And Child Support After He Tried To Revise That Judgment, But Failed.
Now He'S Not Paying A Thing And I Am Hanging On A Thread, Trying To Keep The House And A Fairly 'Normal' Life Afloat For Our Teen. He'S Emailed Me That For The First Time He'S Experiencing Depression (He'S Been On Ssris For Many Years And I Often Talked About His Need For Counseling...). He'S Informed Me That He'Ll Move Away To His Mother'S House In Oregon. We Live In Washington State.
Here'S What I Am Wondering. His Sister, Who Is Really Vile And Vindictive, Affluent And Entitled, Pious To No End And Managing Everybody Else'S Life Is Trying To 'Help' Him. If She Were To Take Power Of Attorney Over My Husband, What Would That Spell For Me? Would I Have To Mediate With Her? If It Goes To Trial (Which I Suspect This Divorce Will) Do I Have To Argue Her? How Much Power Does She Actually Have If She Were To Take On The Poa. Trust Me, She'S Just As Dangerous Behind The Scene..
Thank You For Any Input!
I'm so sorry for your predicament. That's horrible.
The only good advice you are going to get is from a good attorney. Him putting his sister as POA means that she takes care of his affairs if he is unable to do so, but laws vary from state to state so I would really look into websites concerning this in your area and consult an attorney as soon as possible.
He'd have to be in pretty bad shape not to be able to handle his own affairs. Usually POA is given to people with aging parents who might become incapacitated and unable to make their own decisions in the future.
But first and foremost, get the info you need to protect yourself. This does seems like it could get ugly fast...
A Question For Law School Students And/Or Lawyers???
A Few Questions, Actually:
1) I Have A Strong Background In Standardized Test Taking. However, My Quantitative Skills Have Often Carried My Scores, Although My Verbal Scores Were Not Terrible. Has Anyone Else Been In My Situation, And If So, How Did You Fare On The Lsat?
2) As I Mentioned, I Am A Very Quantitative Person, And I Am Afraid That The Law May Not Hold My Interest. I Would Hate To Change Courses, Enroll In A Law School, And Pay The Tuition, Only To Realize That It Is Something That I Absolutely Hate. Can Any One Recommend A Source Where I Could Determine If The Curriculum Is Something That Would Interest Me.
3) I Have Had Trouble Finding The Different &Quot;Tiers&Quot; Of Schools. The Schools I Am Looking At (And Businessweek Ranking) Include: U Of Georgia (32), Georgia State (82), Emory (22), Etc - Essentially, All Are In The Top 100. How Do I Find Out What Tier These Schools Are In?
Also, Tuition Is Listed As Ranging From 7,000 To 35,000. Is This Per Year Or Semester?
Take a practice LSAT test. You can find free ones in many places. That's the only way to tell how you do on the test. Everyone is different.
Go visit a local law school. Ask to sit in on a class. That'll give you an idea if you'd be bored out of law school. Just remember that being a lawyer has very little to do with what law school is like.
I'd also recommend shadowing different types of lawyers. See if you can shadow a lawyer practicing Intellectual Property. It sounds like you have a BS degree so that may be an area of law that interests you.
Tier is easy to figure out. They normally follow the US News rankings. 1-50 is First Tier. 51-100 is 2nd Tier. 101-150 is 3rd Tier. Anything lower is 4th Tier.
Tuition depends on the school. I'd have to see the wording to see if they've broken it down to semester or not. $35,000 is definitely going to be for the whole year. $7,000 sounds like it could be for a semester, altho I know state schools in that part of the US are good bargains so it might actually be for the year. Just check the school's website. Research is a big part of being a lawyer. Finding out the answer to that shouldn't be too hard for your. Don't like doing even that, then don't be a lawyer.
The 1975 Family Law Act?
I Need As Much Information As Possible As Well As Some Helpful Links Butt I Would Rather Your Answers. I Need To Know Things Like, Why Did Australia Need It, How Was It Made Possible, And What Did It Do For Australia???
Xd Peace Out Xd
The Family Law Act was enacted in 1975 by the Australian government, led by then Prime Minister Gough Whitlam. One of the main innovations was the introduction of a "no fault" approach to divorce. Couples no longer needed to show grounds for divorce, but instead, merely had to show that their relationship had suffered an irreconcilable breakdown.
Due to the division of power between the Commonwealth and the Australian states under the Australian Constitution, the Act initially could only deal with children born or adopted into a marriage, it was not until later years that the Family Law Act dealt with matters relating to ex-nuptial children. However, the states referred these powers to the Commonwealth and, until the 2006 amendments to the law, were all located under Chapter VII of the Act.
The Family Law Act has clearly, over time, been one of the most controversial pieces of Australian legislation and has been subject to numerous changes and amendments since its creation. A great number of amendments have reflected the political climate of the times: liberal Australian governments, such as those led by the Australian Labor Party, stengthened the relevancy of non financial contribution of the stay-at-home partner in property matters; conservative governments, such as those led by the Liberal Party of Australia, have furthered the wishes of fathers' groups by extending the rights and responsibilities in negotiating parenting arrangements.
The 2006 amendments changed the way matters involving children are dealt with. These included:
a progression towards compulsory mediation (before Court proceedings can be filed, in an effort to ensure matters do not reach litigation),
greater examination of issues involving family violence, child abuse or neglect,
more importance being placed on a child's family and social connections, and
a presumption that parents have equal parental responsibility - NOT equal parenting time. ~!
Does Anyone Know Any Websites That Can Help With Legal Advice?
I Need Somewhere That Can Quote The Constitution And Its Amendments Without All The Legal B.S. That Confuses Anyone Who Reads It. Specifically, I Am Looking For The Definition Of &Quot;Illegal Alien&Quot;. This Is For A Research Paper, So I Need A Credible Source, I.E. The Constitution. So Far, All The Websites Are Full Of All These Symbols And Abbreviations That Confuses The Absolute Fcuk Out Of Me.
You won't find the term "illegal alien" in the constitution for several reasons. First, there were no immigration rules when the constitution was written. Further, everyone was a citizen who lived here, no matter how they got here (although slaves were another issue).
I understand your frustration. All of the abbreviations and symbols are confusing.
So, here is what I would do for non-professional research.
First, get a basic understanding of how an alien can enter legally.
Second, go to some basic websites that talk about illegal aliens and those issues. You will start noticing some cases and laws, with "funny abbreviations."
Third, type into your search the cases and laws. You will start to see how the abbreviations work. They are really important to legal research, as they say alot. Unfortunately, their are entire books with these abbreviations. But the abbreviations tell you what kind of law it is (state, federal), whether it is a regulation, and whether the court is the state court, us supreme court, circuit court of appeals (and which court, which tells you alot) and of course, the local district courts.
I say that the courts tell you alot because, for example, the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals (primarily West Coast) is considered very liberal. The US Circuit Court (located in Washington DC) is considered very conservative).
Since you do not tell me your thesis, I cannot give you any better advice than this. If, for example, you wanted to make a new argument that illegal aliens have no rights, I could point you to some cases to get you started. If you wanted to make an argument that illegal aliens do, or should, have rights, I could point you to some cases to get you started.
But, with the information provided, the roadmap I provide may get you started in the right direction.
