This may make the whole process of finding one with significant amounts of experience a bit of a challenge. However, should you follow the following it will be easy to narrow down your search on the right one in very little time. The initial step is to produce a selection of the lawyers which are listed in the area focusing on your needs. While you are causeing this to be list you must only include those which you have a good vibe about according to their advertisement. You can then narrow this list down if you take a little while evaluating their website. There you will be able to find how many years they have been practicing plus some general details about their success rates. At this time your list ought to have shrunken further to the people which you felt had professional websites as well as an appropriate amount of experience. You should then take time to look up independent reviews of each and every attorney. Be sure you read the reviews rather than counting on their overall rating. The details in the reviews will provide you with a solid idea of the way they connect with their customers and the time they invest into each case that they are focusing on. Finally, you will need to talk to no less than the past three lawyers that have the credentials you would like. This will give you enough time to truly evaluate how interested they may be in representing both you and your case. It really is crucial for you to follow most of these steps to ensure that you hire a company which includes the proper degree of experience to help you get the perfect outcome.

He Was So Abusive To Me Physically And Emotionly And I'M So Glad I Got Out When I Did But I'M So Nervous To See Him Monday, Ive Had Nightmares For The Past Week. I Have Not Seen Him Since I Was 5 Months Pregnant. How Can I Build Up The Courage To Look Strong Like I Am When Hes Away?We Are Just Fighting Child Support He Wants To Pay Less Then 270 And The Military Lawyer And A Texas Lawyer Said 652. I Know A Judge Actually Sets The Amount. Are Texas Judges Nice? Anyone Been To A Cleburne Tx Judge, Ive Never Been To Court Before. Do They Go By The Guidelines Are Just Set An Amount? Any Tips To Acting Confident And Not Let Him Get To Me? Hes A Very Manipultive Man, And Is The Best Liar! I Already Know Hes Going To, Luckioly I Have Documents. Anywho Any Advice?
Also, Im Just Fighting For What My Child Deserves, Not Trying To Take All His Money, I Have Serval Interveiws Lined Up For Next Week Because My Baby Just Turned 3 Months And Im So Ready To Work! I Jsut Think He Should Help Since He Helped Make Him!
Whoo, am I glad you asked this question! I am in the army, I live in Texas, and I am also going through a divorce due to adultery. I have lots of experience to share!
First thing first, it is against the UCMJ (military law) for a service member to commit adultery--whether they are married or whether they are canoodling with a married person. Contact his commanding officer AND the commanding officer of the other woman (probably the same CO), and tell them what's happened. When you call, ask them for the phone number to the Inspector General. The IG is a regulating authority that makes sure that service members are following the regulations, and this will light a fire under their commanding officers to take action against your husband and his mistress. They're looking at extra duty, forfeiture of pay, possible rank reduction (very likely if they are in the same unit), and possibly some other punishments. For good measure, ask the commanding officer for his/her commanding officer's number and then fill them in on what has happened. This will ensure that there is no hiding of facts, and makes sure their commander won't try to sweep things under the rug in order to keep the unit from looking bad.
Secondly, because your husband is married and in the military, he gets special pay and allowances for supporting a household. As his spouse, you are legally entitled to a large portion of this pay, even if you are not living together. Check with the Inspector General about this; they will tell you the exact amount he owes you according to his rank and time in service, and they will force him to pay you if he is not. That money is given to him to support you and the baby, and you are owed it.
Third, here is what to expect from the divorce: Texas is shared property state, which means that you may contest him for any property bought or paid for during the period that you were married. You are owed about half of that normally, but being that you now have a baby, the amount going to you should be closer to two thirds. Generally, Texas will not award alimony to couples married less than 10 years, BUT you will DEFINITELY get child support. Expect between 25 and 30% of his total pre-tax earnings--the number of $652 you got from the lawyer sounds reasonable. A judge will laugh his request of $270 out of court. Custody will almost definitely be given to you, both on the count that he screwed around, and based on the fact that he is in the military and is unlikely to be able to support the baby due to deployments, etc. Texas courts are very protective of single parents, and the judge will make certain that he gives you all the support you need to raise your baby. Because he is in the military, he really has no option but to pay you the court-ordered support, and you can go to the Inspector General if you have any trouble. The payments should come automatically out of his pay.
You will come out very well from your divorce. However, do not expect the court to "punish" him for his adultery by awarding you extra property or compensation. Texas is a no-fault divorce state, which means that a judge will not be more or less harsh on him based on the circumstances. I probably do not need to tell you, but do not sign ANYTHING he gives you without presenting it to your lawyer first. If there is any way for you to lose in this situation, it is by letting him bully you into signing documents that favor him, which is a common tactic and should be expected. Play it smart, trust your lawyer, and remember that you are not at fault for any of this.
I'm very sorry that this happened to you. I'm going through a similar experience myself, except my wife was the adulterer. Just stay confident, and things will work out fine.
Is This Grounds For A Medical Malpractice Law Suit?
Last January I Went To See A Doctor Regarding Unwanted Weight Loss And Flu Like Symptoms. She Set Me Up For A Ct Scan Of My Abdomen And A Colonoscopy And Gave Me A Prescription. Her Office Called About A Week Later Saying The Doctor Wanted To See Me Asap So I Went Right In. She Told Me I Had A Tumor On My Bladder That Was About An Inch In Diameter And To Prepare My Life For Radiation And Chemotherapy And See A Urologist Immediately Which I Did. Both Tests Were Negative. I Returned To The Same Doctor And Told Her The Prescription She Had Given Me Caused Severe Diarrhea,Stomach Pain And More Weight Loss And I Didn'T Want To Use It Any Longer. She Argued With Me In The Same Manner A Two Year Old Child Might Argue With Their Parents And Insisted I Take The Medication Three Times A Day Everyday. I Later Learned The Prescription She Had Given Me Was A Laxative That Goes By The Brand Name Of Miralax. By This Time My Normal Weight Of 120 Pounds Had Dropped To 98 Pounds, None Of My Clothes Fit And I Was Wearing Adult Diapers 24/7. I'M A Retired Woman Without Insurance So All These Medical Expenses Were Mostly Out Of Pocket And It Became Necessary For Me To Purchase Medicaid Which Cost 35% Of My Retirement Income Which Literally Broke Me. I'M Still Having Stomach Aches And Loosing Weight But Have No Money Left To Pay Further Medical Costs. I Picked Up A Copy Of My Medical Records To See What This Ding-Dong Doc Had To Say And Found She Had Authored My Records To Say She Prescribed Two Does A Day Rather Than Two. I'D Been Fortunate Enough To Have Never Experienced Being Sick Before Meeting This Doctor. I'M At A Loss As What To Do Next. Your Answers Are Greatly Appreciated.
This is arguably malpractice -- wrong diagnosis. But you are unlikely to have enough money damages to make the case worthwhile for any attorney to take your cases. Pursuing a malpractice case would be a waste of your time.
You also said you had to purchase "Medicaid." Medicaid is a government program for low income persons. You can't purchase it. If you purchased some sort of medical insurance, perhaps it would help with your medical expenses. If you are retired, and over 65, you are presumably eligible for Medicare, which would also help with your medical expenses.
I suggest you find a source of information -- perhaps your county health department -- who could refer you to the assistance and services you need.
If U Cant Afford A Lawyer In A Child Support Case , Do U Have To Speak For Urself ? ?
The Judge Asked Me If I Would Like A Lawyer To Help Me With My Case I Told Her Yes But I Can'T Afford A Lawyer But Can The Court Give Me A Legal Aid And She Told Me No That I Either Have To Provide My Own Attorney Or Have To Speak For Myself
You are only entitled to free legal representation in criminal prosecutions, not civil cases such as child support. If you can't afford an attorney, ask the court clerk's office for a listing of free or low-cost legal services in the area for low-income people. Most counties throughout the U.S. have non-profit organizations that offer help to low-income litigants. Some courts also have free legal assistance for family law matters (note that they are generally for advice only & will NOT actually represent you in court). Try contacting the local bar association as well...they may be able to refer you to local attorneys who offer pro bono (free) or low cost services to people in your situation.
If you absolutely can't find an attorney you can afford, then yes you'll have to represent yourself.
Need Legal Advise. Personal Injury?
On Thursday May 5Th. I Slipped On The Public Restroom Floor At The Local Mall And Dislocated My Left Knee. The Floor Was Wet. I Now Require Physiotherapy And May In The Future Require Surgeries. A Lot Of People Have Been Telling Me To Go After The Mall For Compensation But I'M Really No Sure If I Have A Case At All.
Also, The Mall Has Contacted Me Once To Find Out What My Employment Status Is But That Was Weeks Ago. I Would At Least Like Compensation For Medical Expences But I'M Not Sure How To Go About Asking For It.
If They Do Present Me With Some Sort Of Settlement I'M Heasatent To Sign Anything Incase I Do Require Surgeries Or Other Medical Expenses Accrue In The Future As A Result Of This Accident.
What Would You Recomend?
I'M A 26 Year Old Resident Of Ontario, Canada. Incase That Makes Any Difference
I am not familiar with Canadian law. This is specific to my state's laws:
The mall may not have any liability whatsoever. The only time a business is liable for injuries is when they are acting negligently. That the restroom floor was wet does not mean that that the mall is automatically negligent and it does not mean that the mall is responsible in any way for any injuries that might happen.
When a slip happens in a restroom, the injured party has a number of problems. The first is that public restrooms often have wet floors. We have a responsibility to use extra care when we are walking in a restroom. The second is that there is usually a wet floor sign posted. The third is that unless the mall was aware that the floor was more wet than usual and had failed (over a reasonable period of time) to either mop up the floor and/or post a sign, the mall is not behaving with negligence.
Oftentimes, a business will pay for out-of-pocket medical expenses for a person who is injured on their property - just to make the situation go away. But if that person begins to ask for the moon and the stars (i.e. pain and suffering, potential future medical bills that may or may not be necessary), then the business will often tell the person to take them to court.
How Do I Find Out If Mutal Referral Services Is Using My Husbands Information Given On The Loan Application?
We Applied For A Loan With Mutual Referral Services They Said We Were Approved For A Loan Of 10,000 With A 6% Interest Rate, We Believed It So We Sent In Copies Of Pay Stub And A Copy Of My Husbands Ssn With The Last 4 Numbers Blacked Out, Then They Told Us As Soon As We Send Them 1800.00 For An Insurance Payment They Would Deposit They Money Into Our Checking Account, I Told My Husband We Do Not Have That Kind Of Money To Send To Them, And After Doing Some Research I Could Not Find A Phone Number For Them In Virgina The 411 In Va Said They Did Not Have A Listing For Them And Now They Do Not Even Have A Website, I Have Contacted Our Bank Just In Case They Try To Do Anything With My Husbands Account, But What Else Should I Do?
You should also place a freeze on your husbands social security number just in case. You should also report this company to you local state attorney generals office as there is a law(not sure if its federal or state) that prohibits and upfront fee from being charged for a loan. This screams scam to me.
