Become A Florida Family Law Attorney?
What Are The Best Steps To Become A Florida Family Law Attorney And About How Long Does It Take? Also, Any Idea On The Cost?
You need college and law school. If you do it at the normal pace, that is 4 years for your Bachelors and another 3 years for law school.
Good college courses that will help you be a great family law advocate include tax and accounting, because so much of what you will do involves splitting the estates in divorce.
Develop good writing and speech skills.
In law school, I would take every trial procedure course available - once you stomp a few opponents in litigation, your reputation will often allow you to negotiate your cases into an acceptable settlement. Also take any arbitration and mediation courses you can get - an ongoing trend in family law cases.
Take another tax course and a Florida real estate law course.
And, of course, Family Law and the core law courses.
Good luck to you - which law schools are you looking at? Stetson? FS? UFL?
How Hard Is It To Revoke Guardianship?
I Gave Gaurdianship Up About 8 Years Ago Because I Was On Drugs Very Young And Not Financially Stable Now I Am Financially Stable An Been Off Drugs For Over 3 Years And I Want My Daughter Back Now
Guardianship or custody? 8 years with someone else sounds too long for guardianship. Did you have to sign any legal paperwork? I have legal custody of a grandchild for the same reasons you had. We had to secure a lawyer and he said guardianship was for temporary care. For example if a couple or single parent had to move far away for work (a year or so at the most) and couldn't take their child. They would give guardianship to a family member or close friend. Legal custody, however gives us the right to raise the child the way we want. We have as much right as if we had adopted that child. But the parents had to sign those rights over to us. In a 4 page document our rights are stated as "having sole custody." We allowed visitation when it was safe, etc. If either one of the parents wants to regain sole custody, they would have to hire an attorney and challenge the court's original decision.
Have you been in contact with your daughter and the family she's been with? I feel like there's some information missing from your question. That's okay, but as asked, it's hard to give a really good answer.

What Is The Job Of A Criminal Defense Lawyer Like?
Pay.. Working Conditions, That Sort.
Depends on whether you are a public defender or a privately retained criminal lawyer. Public defenders can make anywhere between $50k to a $100k+/year depending on their experience.
Private practice criminal lawyers can make anywhere from nothing to millions of dollars. If you're someone like Johnny Cochran, you can make a lot of money, but if you're a sole practitioner who does a few minor misdemeanors here and there and can barely afford to pay your overhead, then you can get into debt.
It mainly rests on how hard you work, the reputation you build, and the business savvy you have.
Working conditions can also vary depending on how big your case load is and how much you enjoy your job.
Why Do Lawyers Steer Away From Representing Disabled Plaintiff'S In Ada Complaints?
No Money In It For Them? Lawyers Could Careless About The Disabled? They Are To Good For That? They Are Lazy And Do Not Want To Do Extraneous Work Required In Representing Disabled Plaintiffs? They Just Want Cases That Are Very, Very Easy To Win?
You've already answered your own question. No money in it.
Law School tuition is easily $45,000.00 per year. They could graduate with over $100,000 in student loans.
After they get that paid off - they still have to pay for their office, supplies, paralegals, secretaries, legal databases/resources etc.
Then, like everyone - they have to pay their personal bills - mortgages, car payments etc.
Sorry, but like most other professions....lawyers are there to make money. They don't work for free. Just like your doctor, dentist or veterinarian do not work for free.
