Can Someone Tell Me What Is Legal Aid?
I Plan To Divorce And What Is Legal Aid And What Does It Cover For The Divorce Is It Hard To Get??
Legal Aid is a free legal service. You normally have to qualify financially (be poor). They will not charge you for their legal fees but you still have to pay all the filing fees to the court.
Here in AZ, in my county, I qualified financially but they had way too many cases that were more desperate than mine, so they couldn't help me but they sent me a whole bunch of documentation on how to file the proper paperwork on my own.

Title Lawyer or specialist in Title Law
The Deed or Title of a land is what confers ownership.
Land Patent, Deed, First Title Deed, Final Certificate and Land Grants all fall under the same system.
According to Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Land_regist...
"In law, land registration is a system by which the ownership of estates in land, is recorded and registered, usually by government, in order to provide evidence of title and to facilitate dealing.
In common law countries, particularly in Commonwealth jurisdiction, when replacing the deeds registration system, title registrations are broadly classified into two basic types: the Torrens title system and the English system, a modified version of the Torrens system."
According to Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Land_patent
"A land patent is evidence of right, title, and/or interest to a tract of land, usually granted by a government (or in the US the federal, state) to an individual or private company. In the original 13 American Colonies a proprietor would grant land patents. Besides patent, other terms for the certificate that grants such rights include first-title deed and final certificate. In the United States, all property can be traced back to the first title deed and to claims document titles for land originally owned by France , Spain, United Kingdom, Mexico, or Russia.
A land patent is known at law as "letters patent" and usually issues to original grantee, and their heirs and assigns forever. The patent does not constitute title but is mere evidence of right to title existing in law."
Thinking About Being A Lawyer...?
I Am In 9Th Grade Now So I Have Time To Decide My Career Still But I Am Interested In Going To Law School. I Have A 98% Or Higher In All Of My Classes Plus I Play 3 Sports So Getting Into Law School Is Not An Issue. If You Are A Lawyer Could You Tell Me Some Things That You Like And Dislike About Your Career
Lawyers are a dime a dozen, go medical. Heck, there is a shortage of pharmacists and their median wage is $100,000K well above lawyers, less school for pushing pills, unbelieveable. Dentists 180,000K median and there is a shortage, and of course a shortage of MDs.
From US News, Poor careers for 2006
Attorney. If starting over, 75 percent of lawyers would choose to do something else. A similar percentage would advise their children not to become lawyers. The work is often contentious, and there's pressure to be unethical. And despite the drama portrayed on TV, real lawyers spend much of their time on painstakingly detailed research. In addition, those fat-salaried law jobs go to only the top few percent of an already high-powered lot.
Many people go to law school hoping to do so-called public-interest law. (In fact, much work not officially labeled as such does serve the public interest.) What they don't teach in law school is that the competition for those jobs is intense. I know one graduate of a Top Three law school, for instance, who also edited a law journal. She applied for a low-paying job at the National Abortion Rights Action League and, despite interviewing very well, didn't get the job.
From the Associated Press, MADISON, Wis. (AP) - A lawmaker who persuaded the Assembly to eliminate all state funding for the University of Wisconsin law school says his reasoning is simple: There's too many lawyers in Wisconsin.
From an ABA study about malpractice claims, More Sole Practicioners: There appears to be an increasing trend toward sole practicioners, due partly to a lack of jobs for new lawyers, but also due to increasing dissatisfaction among experienced lawyers with traditional firms; leading to some claims which could have been avoided with better mentoring.
New Lawyers: Most insurers have noticed that many young lawyers cannot find jobs with established firms, and so are starting their own practices without supervision or mentoring. This is likely to cause an increase in malpractice claims, although the claims may be relatively small in size due to the limited nature of a new lawyers
“In a survey conducted back in 1972 by the American Bar Association, seventy percent of Americans not only didn’t have a lawyer, they didn’t know how to find one. That’s right, thirty years ago the vast majority of people didn’t have a clue on how to find a lawyer. Now it’s almost impossible not to see lawyers everywhere you turn."
Growth of Legal Sector
Lags Broader Economy; Law Schools Proliferate
For graduates of elite law schools, prospects have never been better. Big law firms this year boosted their starting salaries to as high as $160,000. But the majority of law-school graduates are suffering from a supply-and-demand imbalance that's suppressing pay and job growth. The result: Graduates who don't score at the top of their class are struggling to find well-paying jobs to make payments on law-school debts that can exceed $100,000. Some are taking temporary contract work, reviewing documents for as little as $20 an hour, without benefits. And many are blaming their law schools for failing to warn them about the dark side of the job market.
The law degree that Scott Bullock gained in 2005 from Seton Hall University -- where he says he ranked in the top third of his class -- is a "waste," he says. Some former high-school friends are earning considerably more as plumbers and electricians than the $50,000-a-year Mr. Bullock is making as a personal-injury attorney in Manhattan. To boot, he is paying off $118,000 in law-school debt.
A slack in demand appears to be part of the problem. The legal sector, after more than tripling in inflation-adjusted growth between 1970 and 1987, has grown at an average annual inflation-adjusted rate of 1.2% since 1988, or less than half as fast as the broader economy, according to Commerce Department data.
On the supply end, more lawyers are entering the work force, thanks in part to the accreditation of new law schools and an influx of applicants after the dot-com implosion earlier this decade. In the 2005-06 academic year, 43,883 Juris Doctor degrees were awarded, up from 37,909 for 2001-02, according to the American Bar Association. Universities are starting up more law schools in part for prestige but also because they are money makers. Costs are low compared with other graduate schools and classrooms can be large. Since 1995, the number of ABA-accredited schools increased by 11%, to 196.
According to the Internal Revenue Service, the inflation-adjusted average income of sole practitioners has been flat since the mid-1980s.
Many students "simply cannot earn enough income after graduation to support the debt they incur," wrote Richard Matasar, dean of New York Law

Need Legal Advice... ?
This Is Probably Going To Get A Little Long... I'll Try To Keep It As Simple As Possible.
Basically, I Got A Divorce In February From A Man I Was With For 13 Years. He Supported Us, So I Never Had Any "Real" Jobs... Just Bartending, Etc. What I Made Was Just For Extra Spending Cash. When I Left Him (Long Story, But I Had Good Reason), I Just Wanted Out And He Got Everything! I Didn't Have A Lawyer, And No Money For One, And Had No Idea Where To Go For Help Or Advice.
So Basically, I Make About $200 A Week At One Job And About $300 A Week At Another... Just Trying To Make Ends Meet (And Still Not Doing A Good Job Of It).
He Has Custody Of Our 2 Children And I'm Paying Him $500/Month, Even Though He Makes Over $50,000 A Year. I Don't Mind Paying Money For My Children, Because I Firmly Believe That They Deserve The Best, No Matter What. But At The Cost Of My Not Being Able To Buy Groceries For Myself And Working 80+ Hours A Week For Very Little Pay? They're Going To Shut Off My Electricity In A Few Days Because I Haven't Been Able To Pay It In 3 Months! Rent Is Coming Due, And I Only Have About $300 Saved Up Towards The $777 That I Owe, After I Pay My Child Support! I Can't Even Afford Gas In My Car To Drive To See My Kids!
Is There Something That I Can Do To Get The Custody Situation Readjusted To Better Suit My Income? (I'd Love To Have Custody Of My Girls, But Definately Can't Afford A Custody Battle With Him.)
I'm Open To Suggestions And Advice Of Any Agencies I Can Get In Contact With To Help Me. I'm Desparate At This Point, Because In My Apartments, If Your Electric Is Shut Off, You Have 3 Days To Get It Turned Back On Before They Give You An Eviction Notice. Then Where Will I Go? I'll Be Living Out Of My Car In A Parking Lot Somewhere!

I;d reopen the case and state you were a battered wife and left under terms which weren't correct, just to save your ;life. Have a psychol,.ogical exam at a free clininc from a social worker who can determine some sort of beting a battered housewife to enable you to suspend much of the suippoprt for the kids and get SSI. I think you can get SSI,. Look into it.
Legal Advice For Dealing With A Walk Away Father! Please Help?
What Legal Rights Do Each The Mother And Father Have In This Situation If It Was To Be Brought To Court?
• In Pennsylvania
• The Father Is 19
• The Mother Is 16
• The Father Decided He No Longer Wants The Baby And Walks Out Of Both The Mothers And The Baby’S Life While The Mother Is 6 Months Pregnant
• Now The Father Is Leaving The State
• The Father Is Now Going Around Town Stating The Baby Isn’T His
Other Than Taking Him To Court For Child Support Because That Would Give The Father Custody Rights What Can Be Done Legally In This Situation?
Suing for child support does not automatically confer custody, for goodness sake! Esp when he has no interest in parenthood. He does have some parental rights, tho. Mom must summon her courage and track his location to obtain court order for sole custody and to compel child support. Leaving the state is no bar to child support obligations in this information age nor is leaving the country. He may contest the amt and succeed. He may apply to terminate his parental rights. Mom must take the necessary steps to obtain sole custody order on terms or he may come back and try it himself. It happens.
