Looking For Legal Advice!?
I'M A Fifteen Year Old Girl That Doesn'T Attend School That Got Kicked Out Of Her House 4 Months Ago. I'Ve Been Under The Care Of Social Development Since Then. For The Past Month Where I'M Supposed To Be Staying Is In A Group Home. But I'Ve Been With My Mom. Now My Social Workers Are Trying To Send Me To Another Town And I Refuse To Go.
Do I Have Any Rights? I'M Tired Of Being Looked For By Police. When I First Went Into Care They Told Me That They'Re There To Help Me. It Was Nice At The Time When I Had Nowhere To Go. But I Have A Home Now With My Mother. All They'Ve Been Doing Is Turning My Whole World Upside Down And Making Me Miserable. I Want To Get Out. Being Shipped From Place To Place Just Isn'T Fair.
As a minor which you are classified under legal council you are deemed responsible property of your parents OR governing agency, not a legal property, but your actions they whom ever they are, are responsible for you. I can offer no legal council, but you are not helping your mom by staying with her. If you are in social services and they cannot find you then your mom is kidnapping in the eyes of the law, and she will be incarcerated if you are with her when they discover you. My advice to you is
1) turn your self in
2) see an attorney
3) enter a retrial for your release to your mother
This way you can be with your mom legally if you so choose.
Hope this helps, and i am sorry for your situation i know many of people that have gone through this hopefully you can see the light as they did
How Would I Find The Lawyer That Handled A Personal Injury Case For Me In 1978?
I Received A Broken Jaw From The Accident And Was A Minor So The Case Was Never Closed I Am 44 Yrs. Of Age Now And I'M Having Problems From This How Would I Find The Lawyer That Handled My Case?
The lawyer may no longer be but the other person was correct , court records. All you need to know is state, county and which courthouse was used in the adjudication of your case. It would help immensely to know the date the case made it to court as well. then ask the clerk of court for help.
If the case didn't go to court then try finding the insurance company and asking them
To Become A Family Law Attorney..?
I Understand You Need A Bachelor'S Degree To Get Into Law School. So What Classes Should I Take Before Applying To Law School? And When You Get To Law School What Classes Do I Take There? How Long Can I Expect To Be In College? Any Specific Majors Before Or During Law School? And Classes That Will Benefit Toward Practicing Family Law..?
As for pre-law classes: Generally, a good liberal arts curriculum is good. English, a language, history, political science, and so on. In some cases--though not particularly yours--a business undergraduate also would be good. Depending on the school and the curriculum, you also might be able to take some law for non-lawyer courses. You can find those in everything from journalism to medicine to business. But, overall, just a good liberal arts curriculum is good.
When you get to law school, there will be a very specific curriculum. That varies depending on school. What you can do is visit the websites of a few law schools, especially ones you think you might apply to. Each will list the courses you'll take each semester. There may be a few elective courses, but most of your curriculum will be required courses.
Hope that helps.
What Kind Work Does Paralegals Perform For Their Attorneys In A Law Firm?
Paralegal tasks vary by attorney/law firm. The tasks vary by the type of law performed in that firm. I do everything from stocking the firm fridge, drafting legal documents, answer phones, maintain schedules, arrange mediation, coordinate with office staff...it really depends on where you work.
Child Support W/O Visitation?
I'M An Outsider Looking In..My Boyfriend Has A Child Whom He Doesn'T Get To See Because His Daughter'S Mother In Insecure And Out Of Her Mind. She'S Demanding Child Support (Just Started The Process) But Doesn'T Allow My Boyfriend To See His Daughter At All. He Hasn'T Seen Her Since This Last Summer When He Begged To Take Her For Her 3Rd Birthday And Before That He Hadn'T Seen Her Since Before Christmas Last Year. Can The Courts Really Make Him Pay Child Support W/O Any Visitation Rights?? He'S Her Father And She Doesn'T Even Know Who He Is Because He'S Not Allowed In Her Life For No Reason Other Than The Mother Is Jealous That He'S With Someone Else Other Than Her.. That'S The Only Reason- She'S Even Said It..
Child support and child visitation are completely SEPARATE issues. Even if you are ordered to pay support & don't, you still can't have your visitation taken away.
The father of the child is automatically entitled (with some exceptions) to visitation, regardless of whether he is paying child support or not. The main issue is to determine paternity first. If the mom & dad weren't married when the child was born, then a paternity test will be done. One the test is done (costs about $600 out of pocket) and the guy is proven to be the father, a temporary custody order will be made and visitation will begin. You'll go to court again later to establish official custody, support & visitation.
The court prefers to have the parents work out a visitation schedule amongst themselves because schedules made by the parties are more apt to be adhered to since the parents work within their schedules instead of relying on a judge's arbitrary assignment of time. There will be a temporary visitation order in place immediately so that the non-custodial parent can see the child while the "permanent" (can be changed) orders regarding the issues are being resolved.
You say that the mom hasn't allowed the dad to see his daughter, all he had to do was go to court & say he wanted to see the child. They would have helped him file & no lawyer is needed for this. As stated before, a paternity test would be given & visitation would begin immediately if he is the dad. The fact that he didn't do this before and just let the mom deny him visitation, will not look good to the judge should he be seeking physical custody of the child but if he is only seeking visitation, it won't be a major factor.
To answer your question, YES a court can & will order a non-custodial parent to pay child support even if he/she can't visit with the child BUT this occurs in VERY RARE instances. In order for someone to be denied visitation of a biological child, there must be a serious risk to the child. Even in cases where you have drug addicted violent felons as dads, the court will still grant visitation. The order may just carry some stipulations such as: drug testing, supervised visitation, parenting classes, anger management classes, etc. All in all, visitation in some form will be given unless that contact proves to be an extreme risk to the health & safety of the minor child.
On another note, it sounds as if your boyfriend acknowledges that he is the father of this child but you imply that he is not currently paying child support. You do not need a child support order to pay child support! He should have been paying at least something to the mom over the past few years Not diapers, toys, clothes, etc. He should have been writing a check (for records) and sending money regularly. Since he didn't, be prepared that (if he is the dad) the judge will issue a child support order but then he will also order payment for the 3 years since the child was born. Typically, this is lower than what his current order will be and it is usually payable in installments & attached to the support he will be giving weekly.
Since the mom has already began the proceedings, this issue will be resolved for your boyfriend pretty quickly. It will cost him a lot of money (paternity test, court costs, lawyer's fees, current & retroactive child support) but at least he will have a consistent visitation schedule in place & he can become an active & important part of his daughter's life. You can't put a price on that!
Best of luck
