Do I Have To Pay For A Lawyer Consultation If I Was Told It Was Free And Never Agreed Or Was Even Made Aware I Was Being Charged?
About A Month Ago I Called To Schedule An Appointment With A Family Lawyer. I Was Told On The Phone By The Receptionist That The Initial Consultation Was Free. At No Time Before, During, Or After The Meeting Was I Told I Was Being Charged. I Never Signed Any Agreement Or Contract. However Yesterday I Recieved A Bill. When I Emailed Him He Said He Never Gives Free Consultations And That Everyone In The Office Had Been Warned Not To Say That. The Meeting Consisted Of Him Taking My Personal Information And Making A List Of Papers For Me To Copy And Bring Back. His Retainer Fee Was Way More Than I Could Afford And He Refused To Take Payments So I Knew He Was Out Of My Price Range. His Hourly Rate Is $325 Which Is What I Was Charged For The Supposedly Free Consultation. When I Called Neither Receptionist Would Give Me A Flat Rate Or I Wouldn T Have Wasted Either One Of Our Time.
So you Email him and tell him that it makes no difference, The receptionist was working for him and informed you that it would be a free consultation. And that is a legally binding Verbal contract and that you are holding him to it and that if he continues to demand payment you will contact another solicitor and sue him, And he will also be paying all costs

How Do I Calculate Alimony Arrereages?
My Ex Husband Is Over $1,000 In Alimony Arreareges. Is There Intrest Owed On This And If So How Do I Caculate This.
Lawyers and family court have a matrix for alimony and if there are arrears - family court should go after your husband. To calculate this - this is dependent on his income and number of children he has to support. But first things first - you should tell a lawyer he isn't paying you properly for alimony.
How Are Shared Assets And Debts Split Up In Divorce Proceedings?
If My Parents Would Get Divorced Will They Have To Split All The
Credit Card Debt 50-50 Even If The Majority Of The Cards Are Only Under One Of Their Names?
It goes differently for every instance, so there is no one easy answer for this. I believe the rule of thumb is to split things up by a percentage of income. If your father works and your mom doesn't, they assets will swing more her way and the debts will swing his way. How things are distributed will also be determined by how long they were married. The longer they were married, the more the courts will decide that the woman is dependent on the husband for their standard of living, which means they will award her more in the for of assets, as well as alimony. Which ever one has the best attorney will get the nod their way also. It will also depend on the reason for the divorce, as well as who is the petitioner (the one that filed). The petitioner always has the upper hand because they are on the offensive. Their demands get submitted first and the respondent is them in the position of trying to get that changed.
Sorry there isn't a straight forward answer for this. 50/50 seems logical at first, but there are factors the courts will look at that will determine how these are distributed.

My X Husband Wants To Give Me A Power Of Attorney. In Case Of Death Or Medical Emergencies He Wants Me To Be His Next Of Kin But He Thinks If He Put'S Me Down As His Next Of Kin On His Insurance Then His Family Will Fight Me About Medical Or Financial Issues.
If He Trusted Them Or Wanted Them In Charge Of His Well Being Then He Would Not Have Ask Me..

In The Military Or Different Reasons. Are Those Still Valid If No Other Has Been Given To Someone ? Am I Responsible For Their Affairs Should Something Happen To The Person ? Such As X Who Lives With Girlfriend But Never Married ?
a will goes into effect after he dies powers of attorney expire upon his death and he can appoint you administrator of his estate (personal representative).
A living will his hs statement as to what "drastic measures" he wants taken if he's in a degenerative medical state.
A MEDICAL power of attorney gives you the authority and obligation to make medical decisions in the event he is unable to.
Ideally his estate planning will include all three. As far as being "next of kin" I don't know he can designate that - which is why we have POAs. What he should do is make it clear that you are his POA.
As far as the existing POAs you have if they haven't expired or been revoked - the grantor would send you a letter revoking your POA and should ask for the original back.
Should I Hire A Traffic Lawyer?
Ok...I Live In Ny State...I Ran A Red Light And I Am In The Risk Of Getting My License Suspended If Proven Guilty In My Traffic Hearing....Are My Chances Better To Win If I Hire A Traffic Lawyer To Fight The Case For Me???
As with any criminal offense, go to court without a lawyer and ask to speak to the prosecutor. 99.9% of the time there is a plea bargain offered (plead guilty to reduced charges and both sides avoid a trial). No prosecutor would ever make a better plea bargain offer simply because someone has a lawyer. If the plea bargain offered does not cause a suspension, then you are good. If you don't like the plea bargain offer, you may need to try the case and you definitely should hire a lawyer.
Then again a suspend license is a big deal. Hiring a lawyer will help you navigate the system.
