The initial step is to generate a list of the lawyers that are listed in your town specializing in your position. When you are causeing this to be list you should only include those which you have a great vibe about according to their advertisement. You may then narrow this list down if you take some time evaluating their webpage.

Alimony Question .....?
So - If The Wife Makes More $$ Than The Husband, Or If The Husband Stays At Home And Runs The House (No Kids) And They Split - Does The Wife Have To Pay The Man Alimony ?
I Just Think Alimony Is Such An Outdated, Gender Biased, B.S. Requirement Anymore. What Happened To Women'S Lib? You Or He Wants Out? Fine - Go Get A Job And Support Yourself. Things Change In Life - Sometimes For The Better, Sometimes For The Worse - You Need To Adapt. Split The Assests And Go About Your Business... But The Gal Gets $$ For The Kids (Which I Agree One Should Pay For Their Kids), She Often Gets ≫ 1/2 The Stuff, Plus Gets A Monthly Check On Top Of That ? Heck Of A Deal - Where Do I Sign Up?
I Can Even See A One Time Payment Of A Few Thousand Dollars To Help A Non-Working Soon-To-Be-Ex Spouse Secure Living Arraingements / Etc.....
But To Get Saddled With Paying A Monthly Bill To Your Ex For 10 Years To Life ??? What Kinda B.S. Crock Is That ?
Alimony is going the way of the dinosaur. It's not often awarded and usually, when it is, it's usually in long-term marriages when one spouse hasn't worked - choosing instead to stay home and raise a family while the other is the "breadwinner" so-to-speak. They usually need substantial training or education to get themselves back into the workforce.
I think right now in this country and abroad, marriage & having children is a scary proposition whether you live together or not.
Today, the divorce rate is so high due to no-fault divorce. If you have kids, for women - that means they hold all the cards. A man today has to realize that, love and "the dream" aside, the risks to men/fathers far outweigh the rewards. Check the source - some great books and other resources on just this issue.
Family court is tilted heavily in favor of women/mothers. Moms have all the rights, get all the benefits, and dad is too often relegated to a visitor in his children's lives while being an ATM machine for mom. He can lose half (or more) of the cash, cars, house, investments, etc... and worse - the children.
Seriously, if I had known then what I know now about how the divorce machine sucks in fathers, grinds them up, and spits them out so unceremoniously, I would have never gotten married. I would have given up my dream of having a family.
With no-fault divorce (the biggest killer of marriage and families) you don't need an excuse anymore to get a divorce. You just don't have to feel like being married anymore - and with that reality comes the truth - a marriage is no longer a contract, so what's the point except to put yourself and your future at risk when someone "doesn't feel like it anymore?" With women (who have children) initiating almost 3/4 of divorces today (most men don't even see it coming), it's the smart man who chooses not to get married and certainly not have children... and that's a shame.
This affects men, women, and children alike. It affects everyone and people need to wake up to that reality. I know that there are lousy men and lousy fathers in this world - but make no mistake - the are plenty of lousy women and lousy mothers in this world and we should all be treated the same way (good or bad) and that simply isn't happening today.
If I Told My Bf How Important It Is To Me That He Starts Divorce Proceedings Against His Wife And He Gets?
Defensive, Tells Me I Am Being Insecure And Tells Me That It Is Because Of Money (When I Told Him About The 'Do It Yourself ' Package) Should I Take This As A Slap In The Face? I Told Him Last Night I Couldnt Be With Him Anymore, Or At Least Until He Started On The Divorce And He Would Have To Move Out Until He Got It Together. He Told Me That If I Couldnt Live With It Then He Guessed He Needed To Find Somewhere Else To Go. Talk About A Blow. It Really Hurt. I Would Think A Piece Of Paper Would Be An Easy Thing To Do To Save Our Relationship And My Feelings. Im Feeling Kinda Used. What Should I Do?
It sounds like he has the insecurity problems! He doesn't want to finalize the divorce because he wants the attention from you and from the wife to boost his confidence! If he isn't willing to go through the divorce to make you happy then he isn't in the relationship with you for the right reasons. I know it will be hard and might take a while but you probably need to try to move on if he doesn't start to change and realize how the fact that he is still married but is with you is bothering you! Maybe give him the ol' what if you were in my shoes scenario?! I'm sure he wouldn't like if you were together and you were still married and refused to finalize the divorce? He definitely needs to prove to you that he is in it for you and him, not just for himself! If he isn't capable of doing that then he isn't worth your time. You have sacrificed already to be with him knowing he was still married so he should honor what you have done and return the favor!
After Judgment, How Do You Request Proof Of Fees And Balance Statement From Law Office? ?
I Was Involved In An Accident In Houston, Three Days Before I Was Due In Court To Defend Myself In Dallas For This Accident, I Was Rearended And Hospitialized, So I Missed The Court Date. Can I File An Appeal After Already Making Some Payments On This Judgement? How Do I Ask For Proof Of Expenses Or Itemized List Of Repairs As I Never Recieved Anything. How Do I Request A Balance Or Statement From This Law Office?
You could've called the court clerk to request an alternative date, or sent your attorney to request a continuance, so, no, you can't appeal after a default judgment. Especially after making payments, which are proof of the debt.
You can ask the plaintiff, their insurance company, or their attorney's office very nicely to fax you the bills for the repair, and they probably will. But they don't have to, because you would have received a copy in court. You cannot receive the plaintiff's attorney's bill, you just have to take the court's word for it.
You can call your own attorney's office, and the office manager will fax over any information they have.

Major For Law School?
I Am Planning To Go To The U.S For My Undergrad I Want To Major In Psychology....After That I Want To Attend The Best Law School & Become A Lawyer...Is Psychology A Good Major?I Hv Heard People Say That The Major Doesnt Matter But Still...
I am an associate at an AmLaw top ten firm.
Your question is complex. Why do you want to major in psychology? If it is because you are personally interested in it, and you might do something other than go to law school, then go for it. If there's a chance you might want to go into counseling or social work, there's no reason not to major in psych. You can still get into law school -- no law school will hold a non-law related major against you when considering you for admission.
But if you know you're going to law school, and you want to major in the discipline that will be most useful to you, there's truly only one answer to your question. Major in English. Learn to read (i.e., to comprehend and analyze what you are reading). Learn to write (i.e., persuasively, objectively, technically, analytically). Assuming you know how to read and write, learn to read and write better. Concentrate on becoming the best reader and writer you can. That is what will help you as a lawyer more than anything else you might learn as a college student.
If you have an aversion to an English major, then major in philosophy. Sounds "useless" to you? Wrong. Learn to think. Learn to argue. Learn to push contradictory ideas up against each other, and evaluate them. Learn the significance of the context to that evaluation.
Do not concentrate on trying to learn substantive material that you believe will help you in law school. It won't. You will be taught all the substantive material you need while you are in law school. You don't need to understand "political science" to succeed in law school (or as a lawyer); you don't need to know a lot of "history" to succeed in law school (or as a lawyer); you don't need even need to know a lot of LAW to succeed in law school (or as a lawyer). Law school will give you what you need in those respects and, where it does not, you will gather it on your own in your practice of the law.
What you need to know before you show up at law school is how to read, write, and think. In law school, you will be taught to read, write, and think like a lawyer. You can always minor in psych.
This answer is about what you need to succeed in law school, not about what you need to gain admission. As to the latter, your major is unimportant. Approximately 90% of the admissions decision for all the top law schools is a formulaic weighted analysis of your undergraduate GPA combined with your LSAT score.
Corporate Law Firm Internship?
Just Thought That I Would Reach Out More Widely Than Just To My Local Law Firms And Ask If Anyone Works In A Large Corporate Law Firm Or Knows A Family Member Who Does Who Would Be Willing To Take In A 3Rd Year Honors Law Student For An Internship.
It depends on your grades. If you don't have straight A's, forget about getting a job as a lawyer.
