Child Custody Please Advice?
Okay, I Am Pregnant Right Now And The Dad'S Saying Its Not His. Well, I Told Him That Rather He Beleives It Or Not Its His And I Am Putting His Name On The Birth Certificate. Well, His Response Was If I Did He Would Have A Dna Test Done(I Already Planned That) And Get Custody Of The Baby. How Likely Is It That He Can Do This If I Am Not Unfit I Have A Clean House, I Am Currently Not Working But Checking Into A Work At Home Thing. The Reason I Am Not Working Is Cuz I Can'T Lift. What Are The Chances He Will Be Able To Get Full Custody Of The Baby. I'M Not Real Worried About It But He Does Have More Money Than I Do.
Highly unlikely- parents don't get sole custody without a reason, the majority of judges won't go for that. In all honesty, he's just saying that to scare you out of doing the test- if DNA tests prove it's his, he'll have to pay child support, and it sounds like he will do anything possible to keep from having responsibility in this- he's not going to go for full custody, he doesn't even want to be named the daddy..
What Do Most Criminal Defense Lawyers Major In?
Although provision vary by state, in order to become a criminal defense lawyer you first need to obtain a bachelor's degree. You can choose any major however most people intending to enter law school choose political science, history, criminal justice, or pre-law majors. You must also pass the LSAT (Law School Admissions Test) if applying to an ABA (American Bar Association) approved school. Once accepted you will then need to complete 3 years of legal studies in law school if attending full time and longer if attending only part time. Unlike medical school attending a certain institution does not guarantee you a seat in law school. Students fiercely compete for a seat in a law school. You should keep your undergraduate grade point average as high as possible and strive obtain the highest LSAT score to your ability. I am a pre-law major, so good luck to you future counselor
What Do Engineers Do And What Do Lawyers Do .?
I Know The Basics Of What These 2 Careers Are But I Want To Know More Information Like How Long It Takes To Become Them How Much You Get Paid Etc .Any Information At All About These Two Careers Would Be Greatlyyyyyyyy ! Appreciated
In the USA, to become a Lawyer, IF you go to school full-time:
1) Bachelor's degree - four years from a traditional college/university.
2) Study for LSAT. Take LSAT.
3) Law school - three MORE years.
4) Study for Bar Exam. Take Bar Exam in the state where you want to practice.
5) Pass the Character and Fitness Evaluation. Then you can practice Law.
6) You still have to take additional classes/seminars/legal training etc. each year to obtain CEUs to keep your license to practice Law. (You aren't done with school!!)
7) In many states there are even laws requiring a certain percentage of your legal work to be "pro bono" (free of charge) for some charitable purpose.
Choosing a career is one of life's most important and difficult decisions. But knowing what your expectations are, and then comparing them to the realities will help you make educated decisions.
There are more attorneys than there are legal employment positions. We simply already have way too many Legal Professionals. AND the legal profession is dramatically changing: it is in absolute CRISIS! Job searching in this vocational field has changed >>DRAMATICALLY<< in the last five years. And, every year, more and more people graduate from law school, but there are fewer and fewer jobs. Even the largest and most reputable law firms are experiencing unprecedented cutbacks. I don't expect the situation to improve in the coming years.....
Be aware of what you are proposing on getting yourself into. Please do more research first. Reminder: We are STILL in a World-wide Recession. Obviously, economic conditions affect the number of jobs available. Consider career paths that have available JOBS.<< Even in a Recovery, there are some jobs that just won't return - the field of Law won't make a comeback. Too many things have changed in this vocational field.
Warning> Jobs in the field of Law are drying up fast!! This no longer is a good field to invest time and/or money into. This is a SHRINKING, crumbling, and dying vocational field.
The field of Law has a mystique that actually exceeds reality. The field of Law is a vastly overrated career - especially by television.<< There are many myths regarding the field of Law:
**myth: working as a Lawyer is mentally challenging (Actually, most work as an attorney involves mountains of routine paperwork: research, cite checking, drafting documents, and document review. Attorneys need to write down and track EVERY activity they do, all day long [in 6 to 15 minutes increments, depending on the billing system] - a painstaking but necessary task - handling details is a large part of working as a lawyer),
**myth: being an attorney is thrilling, high-powered, and glamorous (remember: television is FICTION - the fictional lawyers on TV are ACTORS - the majority of work that an attorney does, does not happen in a courtroom),
**myth: law students think that because they are good at arguing they will become great attorneys (Actually being a great attorney is more in one's ability to mediate between differing sides and bringing them to agreement/compromise. Many people mistakenly think that being an attorney is about the ability to argue. Actually, a successful attorney is defined by his/her commitment to the PEACEFUL resolution of disputes. Lawyers are actually: mediators, advocates, negotiators, advisors, evaluators, and peaceful intermediaries between clients.),
**myth: as a lawyer I can correct injustices (actually legal decisions are more about reaching compromises than about right vs. wrong),
**myth: guaranteed financial success (actually when salaries are compared, you also need to account for cost-of living expenses [most large law firms are in large cities - the bigger the city, the more cost-of-living expenses will be], payment of debts accrued while attending law school, and time needed to build a client base. Many large law firms require lawyers to work 60-80 hours per week. There are a FEW attorneys that earn a lot of money - but MOST attorneys just about make a living. Most attorneys do not make as much money as most people think. Also, remember: there are more attorneys than there are available jobs.).
And then, to top it off, attorneys have to keep their client's information confidential. (You cannot use "juicy" tidbits that you have become aware of as fodder for the gossip circles.)
Law is a more demanding profession than most people realize. It is not like what you see on TV.
Cost of law school to be lawyer, approx $150,000+. Be prepared to take on a LOT of debt, if becoming an attorney is your "true", ultimate goal!!
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 already have too many law schools. We are STILL 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.............Remember>>> law schools are BUSINESSES - their TOP concern is making money for themselves.
>>>>>THE #1 MOST IMPORTANT THING (and I can't stress this enough>>>): You ESPECIALLY have to beware of the BOGUS, INFLATED law school salary/job stats given out by >law schools< (AND by the U.S. Bureau of Labor)!!***<<<<<
If you don't believe me, then:
**Check out these websites:
(A link to a website does not constitute endorsement.)
**do a SEARCH here on Yahoo Answers to see what other posters are saying about the current status of the field of Law.
**Talk to recent law graduates. Ask them what success they are having finding employment opportunities.
Read 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 fields of: >>>Healthcare<<<, Information Technology, Law ENFORCEMENT, environmentalism, emergency planning, accounting, education, entertainment, utilities, home-car-commercial-industrial repairs, vice industries, clergy, and/or debt collection. I spoke to a career counselor from Jobs and Family Services, and HE told me that these areas are where the jobs are, and future job opportunities/availability....and scholarships.

Web Site Address With Listsof Attorneys Admitted To Practice Before United States Patent & Trademark Office?
Any attorney can handle USPTO matters. However, patents are a particularly technical area of the law, and you'd do well to seek out someone with specialized knowledge if you're working in that area.
