Do Mandatory Minimum Sentence Laws Work?
Do Mandatory Minimum Sentence Laws Work?
The first answerer gives you the 'standard' answer--the ONLY solution to crime is punishment, and if that doesn't work, MORE punishment.
Mandatory minimum sentences are part of a much bigger program that's been going on for decades now, to take power away from defendants and judges and give it to police and prosecutors. The effect of this whole program has been to erode the BIll of Rights, until GW Bush could simply ignore basic principles like habeas corpus and due process. We have prisoners today who have been in prison for years & years and have never actually been charged with a crime!
Prison overcrowding has been a serious problem in many states. We've doubled sentences for most crimes, and then when that didn't work we doubled them again. The Fed. Govt. banned overcrowding prisons, so now when a minor criminal, like a 'casual' drug user, gets a mandatory minimum sentence, and there isn't room for him in an existing state prison, a more serious criminal is released.
According To Adoption Laws In Illinois?
If Child-Support Is Failed To Be Paid, Can The Child Be Adopted By A New Parent, Have The Birth Certificate Changed To State The Name Of The Adoptive Parent, And The Child'S Last Name Be Changed To The Adoptive Parent'S Name, Without The Birth Father Signing Over His Rights? Say The Birth Father Is Not Paying Child Support (Because He Is Incarcerated). Once He Acquires A Job, If He Still Fails To Pay Support, Could His Child Be Adopted By Another Man, Without Him Singing Away His Rights As A Father?
In order for the adoption to happen, the biological fathers parental rights must be terminated. It is POSSIBLE for the court to terminate rights without his consent, but not easy. It may not be technically legal, but there is a practical method of convincing a 'deadbeat dad' to allow an adoption. If he does not cooperate, the mother has option except to AGGRESSIVELY pursue enforcement of the child support order. If he allows the adoption, she has no incentive to do so. This could be considered blackmail, and thus illegal, but the court may chose not to notice in the best interest of the child.
Should I Speak With A Contract Lawyer?
I Participated In A Teacher Training Last Year. It Was To Teach A Particular Meditation, So This Was Not An Accredited University. The Only Warning It Gave Was That The Tuition, Which Was More Than $1,000, Was Non-Refundable, And That There Would Be No Guarantee That I Could Become A Teacher.
After I Went Through The Training, They Surprised Us By Splitting People Into Categories, And I Was Chosen To Be A Teacher Candidate, Which Meant That I Would Need To Spend More Money Working With A Mentor Until I Could Become A Teacher. They Changed It Again And Added More That I Would Have To Do After Their Second Teacher Training In Mexico. More Time, More Money, More Obligations, It Kept Changing.
They'Re Doing Another Teacher Training Next Year, And The Next Application/Contract Actually Warns People About What They Would Be Required To Do. My Contract Does Not Have This At All.
Do I Have Any Legal Ground? I Assumed That I Didn'T Because The Application Said The Tuition Was Non-Refundable, But I Did Witness A Lot Of Shady Things, Including Favoritism, Lying, Secrecy, Etc. I Also Never Found Out Why They Put Me In The Candidate Category.
Yes, because there are been cases where former students have been able to sue for-profit colleges due to their unethical practices. You should talk to a lawyer and get a free consultation at least. But your first step would be to talk to your school, tell them you want a refund, tell them you're meeting with a lawyer, and don't back down when they try to convince that everything is okay or if they try to intimidate you. They'll point out the no refund policy, but you can tell them that it doesn't diminish their responsibility or ethical obligations. Also, report them to your state's accreditation committee in case they re trying to get accredited.
What Job Titles Are There In Law?
I Know Of Titles Like Lawyer, Paralegal But Could Anyone Share Any Other Titles With Me?
In a law firm the lawyers are further distinguished by titles that generally designate their place in the hierarchy of the lawyers at the firm. At the largest law firms all of the following positions exist:
Staff Attorney - These are attorneys that may handle tasks such as basic document review and preparation. Staff Attorneys generally have no prospects of moving up in the food chain at a law firm but in the few cases where they do, the first step is being promoted to Associate.
Associate - These are attorneys that handle different levels of legal work depending on their experience and are potential candidates to become partners or counsel for a law firm. They are generally recruited straight out of law school although law firms also may also hire experienced attorneys as Associates. An Associates employment at a law firm may last as little as a few years if they are not deemed fit to work as a lawyer at the firm within that time, but most Associates and the law firms that employ them have a good idea of their prospects of making Partner after 5 to 8 years. Within a few years after that time they are either promoted to Partner or Counsel, find employment elsewhere, or are let go. Associates receive a fixed salary with an annual bonus based on their work quality and productivity. Their compensation is generally greater than that of Staff Attorneys and becomes significantly greater with each year they are at the firm.
Counsel - This position is also sometimes referred to as "Of Counsel," "Special Counsel" and other terms. It is generally a position of promotion where the firm does not want to make an Associate a Partner but still wants to retain the Associate. It is also sometimes a demotion for lawyers that are deemed no longer qualified to be Partners. Rather than a fixed salary and bonus, Counsel compensation is often based on their productivity which is a combination of how much client work they bring in for the firm and the number of hours they bill to clients for legal work.
Partner - There are 2 types of Partners at a law firm. Equity Partners are Partners that have an ownership interest in the firm. Their compensation is based on a combination of how much client work they bring in for the firm, the number of hours they bill to clients for legal work, the percentage of ownership they have in the firm, and how profitable the firm was for any given year. The aforementioned factors determine what share of the profits each partner receives each year. Contract Partner compensation is based on how much client work they bring in for the firm and the number of hours they bill to clients for legal work. They have no ownership interest in the firm but usually have the same general administrative powers as Equity Partners.
Aside from the above, law firms also often have Law Clerks that are responsible for delivering and filing documents back and forth from the law firms to the courts and opposing counsels' offices
Difference Between Joint And Full Custody?
I Am Askin Bout The Details. For Instance If My Daughter Lives With Me And Is Joint Custody, With What Will I Have To Ask For Permission From The Father To Be Able To Do With Her? Leaving The Country?School? Medical?
What Will He Lose In Making Myself The Custodian?
Joint custody is when both parents share resposibility 50/50 with the childs upbringing, including time, cost and insurance. Parents living in 2 different counties would have to each have the child for 6mo. out of the year in a joint custody arrangement.
If you were to have sole custody, he would have to pay support and the details would be defined in court. Like how much support, outlined visitation, insurance, etc. If you move, changing schools would be up to you as the child goes where you go.
In joint custody case, things like changing schools is generally decided by both parents as the child is supposed to be with both equally.
Under both custody arrangements, the non custodial parent can legally object to letting the child leave the country and it would be up to the courts to decide.
As to some of the answers you are receiving, I dissagree.
My daughter wanted what was best for her child. She got along great with her X and his family. When they went to court, they opted for joint custody. By the time the court papers were finalized, her X began ignoring the child for the most part, she still visited with his mother and sisters often. Until one of his sisters had a child, then they rarely want her around. To date, her X has paid $0 support, never covered her insurance and hasn't seen his daughter for at least a year. Since they have joint custody, it's hard to prove he hasn't been involved. It's hard to even get into court due to details in their original agreement. I would strongly advise sole custody with visitation and support outlined and monitored by the courts.
BTW, He won't really loose anything, it will just give you more say-so, as it should be since you have her with you. You can let him visit as ofter as you like.
Power Of Attorney Fraud For Loan?
When My Husband Was Deployed, I Ended Up Running Low On Cash And Took Out A $2000 Loan Online Using His Power Of Attorney. It Was A Special Military Power Of Attorney That I Had. I Did Not Ask My Husband'S Permission First, Honestly. He Was Communicating With A Married Woman And Sending Pics Back And Forth With Her And I Was Angry.
Long Story Short, He Is Mad, Met Someone Else, Wants A Divorce, And Is Saying That He Can Get Me For Fraud, Since I Applied Online As Though I Was Him (In His Name), Not Mentioning The Power Of Attorney. Basically I Went Online, Put His Info, And Took Out The Loan Since He Was The Only One With A Banking Account, As I Did Not Have One, And He Paid All The Bills And Gave Me An &Quot;Allowance&Quot; Each Week Before Deployed. Is This True? Can He Really Get Me For Fraud? I'M Scared.
What were the terms of your power of attorney? If obtaining loans or conducting financial transactions were not included, he has a case. If it was, it's going to be difficult for him to prove that "financial transactions" didn't include taking out a personal loan (unless that was specifically excluded).
