How To Sign Over Legal Guardianship?
I Know That You Have To Go Through The Court In Order For An Adult To Obtain Legal Guardianship Of A Minor. My Question Is How Long Does This Process Take And What Is The First Step?
Thank You For Your Answers
A guardianship is a legal relationship created when a person or institution named in a will or assigned by the court to take care of minor children or incompetent adults. Sometimes called a conservatorship. To become a guardian of a child either the party intending to be the guardian or another family member, a close friend or a local official responsible for a minor's welfare will petition the court to appoint the guardian. The guardianship of a minor remains under court supervision until the child reaches majority at 18. The judge does not have to honor the request when someone is named in a will as guardian of one's child in case of the death of the parent, it is construed as a preference, but is usually honored. The term "guardian" may also refer to someone who is appointed to care for and/or handle the affairs of a person who is incompetent or incapable of administering his/her affairs. Guardians must not benefit at the expense of those they care for (wards), and in many cases are required to make accountings to the court on a periodic basis. In some courts, a guardian may be reimbursed for attorney fees related to the guardianship. Court rules regarding accountings of expenses and requirements of guardians vary and local court rules should be consulted.

Teen Pregnancy And Adoption Law?
Does This Sound Stupid Or Not? And Why?:
Anyone Under The Age Of 20 Shall Not Be Able To Legally Marry Without Parents Approval.
However, With Parents Approval A Person Can Marry As Young As 17.
Anyone Who Gives Birth To Or Fathers A Child Under The Age Of 20 Shall Have Their Child Immediately Taken Out Of Their Custody And Placed In The Custody Of Either A Relative Or The State Until The Parent(S) Of Said Child Reaches His Or Her 20Th Birthday.
Until Then, The Parent(S) Must Complete 6 Months To A Year Of Parenting Classes, Must Obtain Their High School Diploma Or Ged, And Must Have Steady Employment By Their 20Th Birthday.
If The Parent(S) Refuse Any Of The Above Then A Relative (Not Living With Either Parent) Will Be Given Full Custody Of The Child Until Further Notice.
No One Under The Age Of 20 Shall Be Permitted To Adopt A Child And All Adoptive Parents Must Attend Parenting Classes For 6 Months To A Year, Not Have Any Criminal Record (Debatable), Must Be Mentally Healthy And Preferably Married, With Good Income And Living Conditions In Order To Legally Adopt A Child.
All Children Who Have Been Put Up For Adoption Must First Be Considered For Adoption By The Biological Parent(S) Relatives Or Close Friends Before Anyone Else.
If All Relatives And Close Friends Decline To Be The Child'S Legal Guardian Then The Child Can Be Adopted By A Stranger.
All Parents Must Attend Parenting Classes For 6 Months (Which Will Be Free) During Or After The Pregnancy To Ensure That They Are Fit And Stable Parents.
Do You Think These Would Be Good Laws Or Not And Why?
How about this instead:
All pharmaceutical companies should begin immediately developing the medicinal equivalent of the chastity belt. This would be a medication administered at the onset of puberty to all males and females. It should be safe, have no dangerous side effects, and should be effective until such time as an antidote is administered, regardless of whether that is 10 or 20 years in the future, or never.
Administration of this "vaccine" would be mandatory, and any parent refusing to have their child vaccinated must enter into a legally binding contract to ensure that any should their child become a parent, they will be responsible for the care of that child, and will forever be barred from receiving government assistance for the benefit of their grandchild.
Beginning at the age of majority, which shall continue to be 18, each person may begin taking the test to receive their parenting license. This will be similar to the process of obtaining a driver's license, in that the state will require each individual to show a basic understanding of the skills it required of a parent. Subjects where basic proficiency must be shown are Fiscal Responsibility, Nutrition, First Aid, Care and Feeding of an Infant, and Child Abuse and the Law.
Anyone failing the test for their parenting license must complete a course in Parenting taught by an accredited instructor who has successfully raised at least one productive member of society before they are eligible to retake the test.
Upon successful completion of the test for their parenting license, each applicant must indicate their intention to either parent singly or to coparent. Applicants wishing to parent singly must take their license and proof of stable income, housing, and independent parenting plan to their doctor before they will be administered the antidote to the vaccine and be allowed to begin risking pregnancy.
Applicants indicating a wish to coparent must wait to be administered the antidote until both they and their intended coparent have passed their parenting test and can show proof of stable income, housing and a parenting plan.
All applicants for a marriage license must take and pass the test that is now given to couples requesting citizenship for an alien spouse. This test has already proven to be a fair indicator of whether you really know your partner well enough to be married to them, and any couple unable to answer the questions about each other is not yet ready for marriage. Each partner must also submit to drug and alcohol screening, as well as a polygraph examination regarding faithfulness past, present, and future intentions, and whether you gamble or have ever assaulted another person. These test results and a full financial disclosure will be forwarded to your potential partner prior to the issuance of a marriage license.
The cost of a marriage license will be equal to ten percent of the total cost of the wedding and honeymoon, to be paid before the marriage will be certified.
With regards to adoption, all adoptive parents must be duly licensed and submit the same proof of stability and a parenting plan as biological parents. Each adoptive family will be put on a national list and each child available for adoption will be offered to the next available family. That family may choose to adopt the child or pass and wait for the next opportunity. Biological mother's wishing their child to be raised by a family member must arrange for this adoption separate from the adoption registry. Any adopted child is immediately and permanently the responsibility of the adoptive parent.
All adoptive parents are required to send bi annual updates of the child's development, as well as pictures, to the biological parents in care of the adoption registry. These are to be delivered by the adoption agency to either parent upon request, and it will be the responsibility of each parent to share information with friends and family as they choose.
All adoptive children are to be made aware that they were adopted, and allowed upon reaching the age of majority to contact their biological parents. Should the adoptive parents feel it is in their child's best interest to be informed about or meet their biological parents prior to reaching the age of majority they may facilitate a search at a time of their choosing.
Where Can I Get Legal Help Other Then Legal Aid?
I Went To Legal Aid In 2002 For Help. I Made To Much Money. I Hired A Lawyer And Got Full Custody. One Your Later The Mother Came Back And Went Through Legal Aid. We Got Equal Joint Custody With Neither Paying Child Support And Taking Turns Alternating Visiting And Return Tax Claiming. She Filed Her Tax This Year And It Was My Year To Claim Him. The Irs Did In The End, Find It Was Only Right By The Court Order And Did Give Me The Return. Just Recentely She Told Me She Was Moving To Platte And I Needed To Sign Some Paperwork For Our Son To Go To School ( Keep In Mind That She Only Said Platte, And I Was Thinking Platte, S.D ). At Last Moment When She Came To Pick Up The Child, She Presented Me The Paper. It Was One That Her Freind Wrote Up And Not A Legal Document. In It Stated She Wanted Me To Give Up My Rights, But Not My Visitions And Let Her Move The Child To North Platte Neb. As We All Have Been Living In South Dakota, And Niether Of Us Can Move The Child Out Of State With Out The Other Agreeing. Today I Went To Legal Aid For Help Again And Now That I Gualify Under The Low Income Part. They Still Can'T Help Me As It Is A Conflict Of Interest For Them Helping Her 6 Years Ago. I Am A Enrolled Member Of Rst And Am Residing In Mission At This Point Of Time. Were Do I Turn To Now For Help? Thank You For Your Time. David
David, contact the state bar association of your state (google it). Many (if not most) states have pro bono programs, where a number of lawyers volunteer to take so many cases a year for no fee. You should be able to get some help that way.
Becoming A Criminal Law Lawyer In Missouri?
I Have Some Legal Stuff That Wasn'T Taken Care Of In California, Non Of It Is Felony However. I Was Reading On The Missouri Bar Web Page That You Go Through A Character Examination. Will This Effect Me Becoming A Attorney? If So, What Do I Do About It.
Why do you want to become an attorney?
Jobs in the field of Law are drying up fast!! This is just not a good field to invest time and/or money into. This is a SHRINKING vocational field. Many reasons. Many people today (mistakenly) think they can do their own legal work, thanks to the Internet. Also, we simply already have way too many Legal Professionals - we have an absolute glut!! ("Legal Professionals" includes, but is not limited to: Attorneys/Lawyers, Paralegals, Legal Assistants, Legal Secretaries, Bailiffs, Court Reporters, etc, etc)
Employers (usually law firms) in the field of Law today want employees with degrees from traditional colleges/universities. Those "certificates" you see advertised aren't worth the paper they are printed on - they are generally scams. (I found this out the hard way.)
Be prepared to take on a lot of debt.
To be an Attorney, approx cost $150,000+.
Do your research, before you enroll.
Even if you finish law school, you won't be able to find a job when you are done. Since this vocational field is shrinking, many new attorneys/lawyers are, themselves, having to work "down" as Paralegals, Legal Assistants, Legal Secretaries, Bailiffs, Court Reporters, etc, etc, to simply try to keep some of their bills paid <<this would be your competition. And the competition is fierce!!
Now... the law schools know this, but they won't tell you the truth >that the job market/economy is just saturated with way too many Legal Professionals. Instead the schools will feed you a fairytale and will lie to you. The root of the problem is we have too many law schools. We are in a recession, and the schools are fighting for their own survival - they will tell students anything to get to the students' money. (Which is why they won't tell you the truth about the job market for the field of Law.) And these schools continue to recruit and churn out even more graduates.............
If you don't believe me, then just do a search here on Yahoo Answers to see what other posters are saying about the current status of the field of Law. Call some local law firms - ask to speak to the Manager of Human Resources - ask them if they are hiring; ask them what they think about job availability in the field of Law..................
In the book "So You Want to be a Lawyer?" by Marianne Calabrese and Susanne Calabrese (ISBN 0-88391-136-1): "The United States has more lawyers than any other country in the world. About 38,000 students graduate >each year< from the 200+ law schools in the United States. The competition is very keen for jobs and clients." - Even Associate Justice Antonin Scalia (who served on the U.s. Supreme Court for more than 20 years) says there are too many lawyers. (9/14/2008)

If you want a job when you are done with your studies, consider and look into the field of healthcare! I spoke to a career counselor from Jobs and Family Services, and HE told me that this is where the jobs are, and future job availability! and scholarships!

Dwi Lawyer. Cant Afford One But Not Poor Enough For Assigned Council?
Ive Got 500 Bucks In My Bank Account, And Its Spoken For Because Ive Gotta Pay Rent Tomorrow.
Ive Got 65 Bucks In My Savings Account.
I Dont Have Any Money And Cant Afford A Private Dwi Lawyer, But According To The Application I Sent In For Requested Appointed Council, Im Not Poor Enough To Recieve Assigned Council....
So Wtf Am I Supposed To Do If I Dont Have Downpayment Money To Give A Dwi Lawyer, And The $300/Month That I Could Possibly Be Saving I Wont See Until The End Of The Month.......My Court Date Is The 18Th (Before The End Of The Month)
Im Messed Up In The Worst Way And I Dont Know What To Do...
What state are you in? Is it your first offense? In my state they have a lawyer referral service. It's lawyers who will take your case for reduced fees. Look in to that. When I was turned down for a public defender for making too much money, they automatically gave me the phone number for the lawyer re feral service.
What Are Approximate $ Damages For Personal Injuries To A 4Y/O Resulting In Surgery To Repair Labia Minora?
While Swimming At A Pool At A Casino Rv Park My 4 Y/O Stepped On A Drainage Cap That Wasn'T Screwed Down, 1 Leg Fell Into The Hole While She Straddled The Cap Resulting In Damages To The Labia Minora, Was Transported To Another Hospital For Surgery That Night To Repair Damages. There Doesn'T Appear To Be Any Major Damage To Ureathra At This Time. I Don'T Really Want To Consult An Attorney, But I Do Want A Fair Settlement & All Expenses For My Child. What Should I Do?
THe owners of the park should be responsible for all medical costs incurred. If you want anything beyond that (which I think you're entitled to- imagining the emotional damage to your daughter now and repercussively in several years from now), you'll need an attorney, but most will offer first consultations for free, to determine if you have a case or not. Some will work on a contigency basis which means you don't pay them until your case is settled.
