Criminal Charges Pending?
O.K, I Have Arraingemet Coming Up In Court. This Is For A Order Of Protection Which I Did Not Hit Or Abuse The Other Party. Charges Are Calling Ex For About 2 Mins To See If I Could Get Them To Throw This Out. I Have Never Had Anything On My Record Or Done Nothing Bad Before. I Am New To This Order Of Protection On Me. What Can I Do In Court And Any Suggestions That Day. Can I Talk To The Da Before Court And See If I Can Work Something Out. I Appreciate All The Help In Advance.
Your question is a little confusing because you talk about criminal charges pending, but it sounds like you are talking about a court date for a protection order. If the court date is simply for an order of protection against you, the D.A. is not involved and it's not a criminal proceeding. It simply means that someone has requested a restraining order to keep you from having contact with them. The judge will listen to both sides and determine if he should issue a restraining order or not. Do you also have criminal charges pending or is this just about a restraining order?
Need Education Legal Advice On Delaware State Financial Aid Policy?
I Attend Delaware State University, I Am In The Process Of Paying For My Upcoming Fall Semester. The Problem Is That Delaware State Has Yet To Tell Me How Much Money I Owe For The Upcoming Semester, And Have Yet To Disburse My Financial Aid. Every Time I Call Them They Tell Me To Wait Two Weeks. My Tuition Is Due July 10Th And Student Loan Takes 30 Days To Process, If I Do Not Pay, I Cannot Attend School, Is There Anything I Can Do Legally?
Talk to the bursar's office (rather than to financial aid.) At many schools, it's the case that if your aid is still pending dispersal, you do *not* have to pay by the deadline. But check with the bursar's office.
If it is the case that you must pay by the deadline, the bursar will likely suggest you arrange for a payment plan. Then, you'd only need to pay X amount by July 10th, and by the time the second payment is due, your aid would likely be in. You may even be reimbursed for your first payment, if your aid is enough to cover it.
Product Liability Insurance Cost?
How Much Will Product Liability Insurance Cost For A 3 Month Test Market Sell Through For An Imported Cosmetic (Low Hazard)?
As noted you can't get a quote here. Any number would be a WAG and of no validity.
You should understand that a typical insurance company will not even remotely consider insuring such a risk. That leaves you with what are called "Surplus Lines" carriers who specialize in hard to place risks. Even in the surplus lines market there will be only a few carriers that will consider offering insurance and then only after a thorough understanding of the product and its potential risks.
You need to work with an experienced commercial broker who is licensed in the surplus lines market.
Lawyers Keep Contracts?
Just Bought A House, My Lawyer Wants To Keep Contract & Wont Give It To Me, Says Its The Law In Nsw, Australia And I Should Be Grateful He'S Not &Quot;Charging&Quot; Me For Keeping It For His Records. Is This True?
Don't know about Australia but I would think the person that paid for the contract gets the original. What do you do if you need to check the contract for any number of reasons? You have to pay him to see the contract? I vote for the smell test too.
Of course you should talk to a lawyer first, they have many legal advice hotlines that you can call too - if all you want is an opinion and not someone to represent you.
This is exactly why I don't give my personal information to store computers.. it's there for any employee to see!
Make sure you have the e-mail where he confesses saved!
Sorry that I don't have very much information, but call the hotlines they'll really help you out.

Choosing a career is one of life's most important and difficult decisions.
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. 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 the vocational field of Law.
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. Many, many reasons. We now have computers. So, many people today (mistakenly) think they can do their own legal work, thanks to the Internet and legal books. Also, there are a lot of companies out there making very efficient legal software for the field of Law. Today's graduating lawyers tend to be very computer savvy, so they just do the work themselves to save themselves the cost of overhead. Also, the "Public" buys this legal software and law books in order to get legal work done without the cost of an Attorney. Also, we simply already have way too many Legal Professionals - we just have an absolute glut!! ("Legal Professionals" includes, but is not limited to: Attorneys/Lawyers, Paralegals, Legal Assistants, Legal Secretaries, Bailiffs, Court Reporters, etc, etc)
Sites like legalzoom.com have taken away work that many small-time attorneys/lawyers would do/used to do.
The field of Law has a mystique that actually exceeds reality. The field of Law is an overrated career - mostly 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), *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), *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.).
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!!<<<<
There are no jobs in this vocational field. My family, coworkers, friends, acqaintances, etc. have been laid off left and right in this vocational field.
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.) Also, the law school's program needs to be accredited by the American Bar Association - if it isn't, you are just wasting your time/money.
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 (at an alarming rate), 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 in TODAY's job market!!
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 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 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 future 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 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.
