How Do I Find A Good Family Law Attorney?
My Ex And I Are Having Issues Over Visitation. He Is Currently In Iraq, But When He Gets Home He Wants To Visit With Our Son, Which Is Fine. Here'S The Catch: He Wants Him For One Week When He Gets Home, One Month In The Summer, And Every Christmas. I Sent Him An Email Telling Him That Since It Has Been Right At 5 Years Since He Has Seen Our Son, He Needs To Make A Few Small Weekend Trips Here So Our Son Can Get To Know Him Personally Not As A Voice On The Phone Once A Month (Our Son Is 6). I Told Him That These Things Needed To Be Eased Into, Since For All Intensive Purposes He Is A Stranger To Our Son.
Also, When I Ask My Son If He Wants To See His Daddy, He Says Yes, But Only If I Can Go With Him Or If His Daddy Comes Here; So I Know My Son Is Feeling Uneasy About This.
I Received An Email Back, Saying I Was Just Trying To Babysit Him And He (My Ex) Didn'T Need A Babysitter. So, I Emailed Him Again Telling Him That Until He Establishes A Trusting Relationship Where Our Son Feels Comfortable With Him I Would Not Let Him Go For Any Amount Of Time.
Let Me Add He Will Reside In Mississippi, And I Live In Indiana, So Its Not Like If My Son Is Having A Hard Time I Can Just Go Pick Him Up; It Is About A 10 Hour Drive.
I Do Not Object To My Son Seeing His Daddy. I Just Think He Needs To Get To Know His Daddy In An Atmosphere He Feels Comfortable In Before Going For A Week Or More Away From Home (And A 10 Hour Drive).
Anywho... So How Do I Find A Good Attorney? How Do I Know If They Are A Good Attorney Or So-So?
Been there, done that sister. this is my advice;
Interview with at least 3 attorneys that practice family law in your area. Write down questions that pertain to your situation and ask them. ask each attorney that, if they were unable to represent you for whatever reason, whom would they recommend? Also, ask them about the law guardians in your area, as your son will need one [you should 'require' one for him]. A law guardian is an attorney appointed by family court to represent your son and his best interest. Remember that he or she is not your attorney, nor your husbands. they will not inform you of a lot of the information that they collect on your sons behalf, so dont let that upset you. You can request a specific law guardian for your son in family court, some judges will grant a request for a specific attorney...mine did. X husband needs to understand that he will have to share ALL holidays. My x and I alternate holidays. I can go on, but I think Ive given the nuts and bolts here. I wish you and your boy all the best!!
I Need Help .Looking For Civil Lawyer.?
Please, I Have A Civil Matter That Involves A Lot Of People And I'M Willing To Expose It All! I Need A Lawyer That Is Willing To Help On A Contingency. There'S A Lot That I Know And A Lot Of Questions Needs To Be Examined.
Nobody can possibly answer your question unless or until you provide more details. Lawyers specialize in one or two areas.
Saying you need a "civil lawyer" is like saying you need a doctor for a specific medical condition. I could give you the name of my family's pediatrician or podiatrist - but this wouldn't do you any good if you are an adult with a heart condition.
If I Sign A Form That Says I Ok That They Are Moving My Mother From Rehab (For A Stroke) To A Nursing Home Am I Responsible For Her Medical Bills? Keep In Mind That My Mother Walked Out On Me 20 Years Ago And I Am Only The One Making The Decisions Because My Grandmother Can'T & My Aunt (Her Sister) Won'T.
Never sign a form unless you know exactly what it says; is the standard law of society (sorry for the preaching, but when you sign a contract you are assumed to have read and understood the agreement.
You can make the decisions for your mother's health care without assuming responsibility, but you need to make that clear. Tell the nursing home that you are estranged from your mother and that she walked out on you 20 years ago. You are willing to make decisions on her health care, but you refuse to take responsibility for any payments.
I am doing this only because no other person in my family will.
Make it clear, make it bold and make it now. Tell them if you have mistakenly signed a form saying that you assume responsibility for paying for anything then that was not explained to you and therefore it was done in bad faith, and I will refuse to honor that agreement.
IF THEY still try to stick you with the bill then you will need the assistance of a lawyer.

I Have A Question About The Guidelines To Child Support When A Non-Custodial Parent Doesnt Pay?
His Child Support In A Year. The Current State I Live In Just Sent Paperwork To The Prosecution Attorneys Office To Be Forwarded To The State He Lives In For Contempt Of Court. Child Support Just Also Found That He Started A Job On Dec 20Th 2006. His Last Payment Was Jan 10, 2006. So I Will Be Seeing The Monthly Payments From Him Finally. Before This He Paid His Child Support All The Time. Basically I Was Kinda Wondering In These Cases What Does A Judge Do In This Kind Of Sitaution. He Has 4 Kids With Me And Is Remarried And Has 2. I Was Told, Because My Kids Was The 1St Marriage They Do Come 1St Before The 2Nd Family. ...............And Also With The Income Tax Knowing He Has Not Worked All Year. She Has (His Wife). Does She File A Injured Family Member Where It Doesnt Get Sent To The Kids. Because I Know When He Is Behind Automatically It Comes To Me His Half. But With The Injured Form Will It Come To Them Or Not??? So I Have Several Questions About This.
well, the honor system doesnt work, thats for sure. good luck if you finally get him to start paying again. some deadbeats suddenly 'get laid off' or get paid under the table, just to avoid paying for their own children.
sick, sad but true.
yes, YOUR kids come first when it comes to money.
contact your local legal aid office. they are in all states (and counties) and go on a sliding scale, so its free to most. look in the phone book or call the county court clerks office and ask if they have it. if no luck, call your states Bar Assoc for it.
also, every state is different (slightly) with child support guidelines, so i dont know what they will do about the wife issue. here are some links, one is a CS calculator; just click on your state and fill it in. also with the other links, just find your state and the subject you have questions on.
the last few are to help you.
i am a single mom of 4, and my deadbeat ran to another state trying to avoid child support. getting paid under the table (like they all try). its a joke to them...til the law catchs up to them.
if the amount he owed hit a certain amount, they should have a tax refund intercept (state and federal) on him. this goes directly to you.
even if he's not working, he STILL has to pay child support (plus arrears).
all of these links above have helped a great deal.
stay strong and stand your ground.
mom of 4 too :)

Child Support Adjustments
You need to know that the child support guidelines are not set in stone. They are just guidelines. You can make a case for not paying so much.
1988 Public Law Record
SEC. 103. STATE GUIDELINES FOR CHILD SUPPORT AWARD AMOUNTS.
(A)(a) GUIDELINES TO CREATE REBUTTABLE PRESUMPTION.-Section 467(b)
of the Social Security Act is amended-
(1) by inserting (1) after (b):
(2) by striking, "but need not be binding upon such judges or other officials;" and
(3) by adding at the end the following new paragraph:
(4) "There shall be a REBUTTABLE presumption, in any judicial or administrative proceeding for the award of child support, that the amount of the award which would result from the application of such guidelines is the correct amount of child support to be awarded. A written finding or specific finding on the record that the application of the guidelines would be unjust or inappropriate in a particular case, as determined under criteria established the State, shall be sufficient to rebut the presumption is that case."
NEVER pay your child support directly to the mother as it can be considered a gift and not support. Always pay threw the court.
