4 Strategies To Help Your Lawyer Assist You To If you want a lawyer for any excuse, you need to work closely with them so that you can win your case. No matter how competent they are, they're planning to need your help. Listed below are four important methods to help your legal team enable you to win: 1. Be Totally Honest And Up Your lawyers need and expect your complete cooperation - regardless of what information you're likely to reveal in their mind. Privilege means anything you say is saved in confidence, so don't hold anything back. Your legal team has to know everything in advance - particularly information one other side could learn about and surprise you with later. 2. Provide Meticulous Records Keep a continuous and factual account of most information related to your case. Whether it's witnesses or payments being made, provide your attorneys with all the data they should assist them to win. 3. Turn Up Early For All Those Engagements Never be late when you're appearing before a court and steer clear of wasting the attorney's time, too, when you are punctually, whenever. In fact, because you may want to discuss last second details or perhaps be extra ready for the case you're facing, it's smart to arrive early. 4. Demonstrate You Have Your Act Together If you've been involved in any type of crime, it's important in order to convince a legal court which you both regret the actions and are making strides toward improving your life. For example, if you're facing a DUI, volunteer for any rehab program. Be sincere and linked to the community the judge is presiding over. Working more closely along with your legal team increases your chances of absolute success. Follow these tips, listen closely to how you're advised and ultimately, you ought to win your case.

What Happens In A Divorce Court Hearing?
Ill Be Having My First Court Hearing Next Month With My Ex. We Have A 7 Month Old Boy. She Currently Is Not Letting Me See Him Unless One Day A Week. I Have Asked Her If I Could See Him Some Other Day During That Week But She Never Responds My Texts Or Never Answers My Calls, When I Say Never Its Never. And The Times I Have Seen My Son, My Exs Mom Is Always The One Handing My Son Too Me And Has Giving Me Drama. I Dont Want My Ex'S Mom Involved Between My Son And My Ex. Also Another Thing To Point Out, My Ex Has Told Me Were I Been Lately Without Me Knowing She Was Following Me Or Anything. Can I Do Something About That?
Here's - among other things - a few things that you need to wrap your brain around.
The very FIRST thing you need, is to get a paternity test done; why? Think about this: In California alone, we have over 8,000 men paying child support for children that DNA evidence has proven they didn’t father. Most of the time in scenarios such as this, the “Daddy” assumes he is indeed the biological father and does all the right things, i.e. pays his child support, meets his visitation schedule, buys clothing and extras to have when the kid(s) is/are with him. Then, a bit of time passes, and one day “Daddy” bends down and says: “Hey, you don’t look like me” and THEN has a paternity test done - TOO LATE!
With the results in hand, Dad happily goes running back to court to have his child support altered or stopped altogether. What most judges say in cases like this is brutally simple: “Sorry pal, you waited too long to challenge paternity, keep paying at the current level” Trust me, this happens every day all across the country.
Next, never, EVER raise your voice or show anger when picking up, or dropping off the child; if she's keeping you from the child, the court will straighten her out on that. If you have to forgo a visit because grandma is being nasty, so be it, leave, drive away and KEEP RECORDS! I always used a voice recorder, then wrote my notes down later. If you show anger, the court will have you in handcuffs before you can spell your last name.
Next, be ready for the worst on your court date, and resist the urge to speak out of turn; be patient. Have good notes, and you’ll get your chance to speak. Let her shoot her mouth off, resist, resist, resist the urge to roll your eyes, speak out of turn, or make any gestures or scoff noises, anything like that. Judges HATE that
Here’s another tidbit for you: In U.S. divorce and custody cases, mothers are awarded primary physical custody of minor children - when such children are involved - over 90% of the time. Get it? That means, child support is going to be a big part of your life for the next 17 years, 5 months.
Get the DNA test done ASAP and if the kid is indeed yours, the court will set a visitation schedule based upon your work schedule, your proximity to where the child lives, child care etc. Start looking for your own child care provider; you don‘t want granny in your life any more than you have to.
The court will also look at your income and her income side by side, as well as both of your tax returns for the last 2 years; this is the “guideline” the court uses to set child support amounts; forget your expenses, the court doesn‘t care.
Hold onto your lug nuts there guy, its going to be a bumpy ride and again, get that paternity test done ASAP and no matter the cost. If that child isn’t yours, you’ll thank me till the day you die and you‘ll save thousands and thousands of your own dollars.
Good luck, and if it turns out the child is yours, go to Amazon and get Dr. Warren Farrell’s book, Father and Child Reunion.
Hang in there, and stay calm….
Can Anyone Recommend A Good Personal Injury Attorney In California?
I found a good local personal injury attorney here in Hutchinson, KS, whose name is Matt Bretz, by asking another attorney friend. They all know each other and refer business to each other based on their expertise. As it turns out, Mr. Bretz used to practice in Los Angeles. I will give his bio and contact information below, but I wanted to let you know that I hired him to do an hour bonus video for a web site we have. My sister was involved in an accicent and was offered $7,000 by the responsible company but she had to have 14 surgeries as a result of the accident and they cost her hundreds of thousands of dollars. She sued them and won over $1,200,000 because of her organizational skills. She now helps others win their lawsuits. You can read more about her at www.howtowinyourlawsuit.com. She gives a one hour bonus video done by Matt Bretz offering advice on personal injuries. He packs a ton of information into that video. Here is his bio. You can call him for advice or ask for a referral to a California attorney.

My Boyfriend Got Into A Car Accident Two Years Ago At The End Of June. His Exgirlfriend Was In The Car With Him And Got A Concussion. The Car Hydroplaned And Flipped But No Other Cars Were Involved In The Accident. She Never Once Approached Him With Medical Bills Asking Him To Help Them Pay For It And They Havent Spoken In Almost 2 Years.
He Got A Summons Today Stating That This Ex Was Holding A Civil Lawsuit Against Him. He Hasnt Gotten All The Information Yet.
What Are The Possibilities Of The Lawsuit?
How Much Would She Possibly Be Able To Get From Him?
He needs to send it to his insurance company as soon as he is served. The company that insured him at the time of the accident.
It sounds like she waited until the statute of limitations was about to run before suing - which generally means she wasn't hurt too badly.
What typically happens, is that the auto insurer will settle with her, inside your policy limits. He will have to do very little other than answer some questions for the lawyer that the insco hires, and possibly be deposed. If she wants more money than he has insurance for, her own car insurance will likely pay that under Underinsured Motorist coverage. She will not get any money from his insurer unless she signs a full release absolving him for all damages.

Immigration Attorney Helping Fake Marriage?
Hi, What Consequence Does An Immigration Attorney Face He Is Reported For Knowingly Helping Submit Their Application Of A Couple Involved In A Fake Marriage To Immigration Officials? Legal Experts Or Lawyers' Answers Please. Thanks
Fraud is a crime. The attorney could go to prison, since the law involves federal statues. He could also lose his standing as an attorney. Of course the key to any action is the proof- "knowingly" also opens the door to conspiracy, a separate crime.
What do you mean, " ... he is reported for knowingly ...?" Who reported him? To whom? With what evidence? Prosecution and conviction for a criminal offense needs "evidence." If a couple, one of whom, immigrated and subsequently divorced, that seems pretty thin "evidence" of immigration fraud. But there is a plethora of facts that you haven't mentioned.
If you suspect something and have even thin evidence, take it to ICE or the FBI and let them run with the case. Take care!
Oh Boy Child Support Visitation?
Okay, So First Thing My Son Is 15 Months Old. His Father Does Not Pay Child Support And Lies All The Time. I Just Want To Know If I Should Deny Him Visitation Until He Starts Paying. Last Weekend He Said He Would Come Get Him And Then He Said He Couldnt And Promised He Would This Weekend. Then Yesterday I Called Him And Asked If He Was Still Going To Come Get Him And He Said That He Couldnt Because He Had To Work. He Is Constantly Saying He Will Do Things And Then He Doesnt Do Them. For As Long As My Son Has Been Alive He Has Seen Him Probably About 50 Times And Spent Maybe Avout 200 Dollars On Him Total. I Texted Him Last Night And Told Him He Could Not See Him Until He Got A Court Date Set Up For Child Support And Signed His Birth Certificate. Oh, He Did Not Sign The Birth Certificate And He Was Not There At My Sons Birth. I Would Really Like Some Advice. I Love My Son With All My Heart And I Just Want The Best For Him.
If you want an order for child support, you need to do that yourself through the child support agency. They have an attorney that will take this to court for you. Once you do, you cannot legally keep your son from him or he could file contempt charges against you. I don't think you can force someone to sign a birth certificate, even if he is proven the father. It doesn' t matter anyways...he would still be held responsible. I agree it's not good for a parent to be in and out of a child's life. They are better off staying completely out. However, maybe the legal responsibility of your son will persuade him to be more active in his life. Sounds like no matter what, you don't have to deny him visitation....he is doing that himself. I've seen so many times this happening...he may very well be getting what he wants from you, then spreading it around that you won't let him see his son and what a terrible mother you are...it ends up being an excuse. Don't give him one. Women try to protect their babies, but in the long run, the man sees it as a control issue and ends up resenting the child as much as the mother...I'm not saying it's right...I've just seen it happen so many times. I know it's not fair, but get the child support order....start logging proof when he doesn't show and take him to court if you have to. It's hard to make plans yourself if you have no idea on what he's going to do.
