Animal Adoption Laws?
Our Dog Opened The Back Door And Took Off About 2 Weeks Ago. She Is Not Known To Do This. We Have Been Searching For Her Extensively And Even Had A Company Send Flyers Out To All Animal Shelters, Vets, Etc.. Today We Walked Through A Shelter And Found Her (Imagine How Excited We Were!). But They Had Already Allowed Her To Be Adopted And Say She Is No Longer Our Dog. We Had Called This Place Numerous Times And Were Told She Wasn'T There And They Should Of Received The Flyer. We Now Have To File An Appeal, Has Anyone Been In This Situation Before? Did You Get Your Animal Back? Is Anyone Familar With The Laws Around This? She Is Our Baby And We Want To Bring Her Home.
you would have to adopt her back at that point
you didnt say what country you are in, but Canada, USA, and England are pretty much the same..
if you loved her you would have gone to the shelter immediately looking for her or would have at least called them to report her missing.. after 72 hours shelters have the legal right to consider themselves the owners of any pets found - this is also for the pets sake - if it were injured it would be suffering because they cannot even treat a pet..
here is a link about the 72 hour law
IF you had reported her missing earlier (to the shelter) - then you MIGHT have a case! assuming this is the shelter that would normally take in strays and is where lost pets should be reported in your area.
Is There A Cap On The Claim Of Healthcare Providers At 50% The Amount Recovered Via Personal Injury Settlement?
For Example, I Am Receiving A $48,000 Settlement To Cover The Healthcare Provided By My Insurance At The Time Of The Event As Well As For Pain And Suffering. According To The Party At Fault'S Insurance Agent, My Healthcare Provider Is Not Allowed To Take More Than 50% Of My Settlement ($24,000), Leaving The Remaining $24,000 To Me.
Does Anyone Know Anything About This? I Would Prefer If Answers Could Be Backed By Some Sort Of Legal Evidence (I.E. Civil Code, Statutes, Laws, Etc).
I don't know of any law that says that.
However, as an insurance adjuster, I have negotiated these types of settlements with health insurance companies in the past. I get the health insurance company to put their agreement to settled their health insurance lien for $24,000 in writing and send that to me. I can then provide a copy of it to the injured person. Usually as part of the agreement, I agree to pay the health insurance provider the $24,000 directly.
Then when I settle up with you (the injured person) I can give you a copy of the agreement from the health insurance provider to settle for $24,000 and a copy of the check issued to the health insurance company for your records.
This is a very common type of settlement with a health insurance company and most are willing to work with me. Usually this agreement is worked out when the health insurance lien is greater than the amount of my coverage.
You will need to ask your adjuster to provide written documentation from the health insurance company showing they agreed to reduce their lien or what ever law/statute he is quoting.
What Does It Take To Become An Associate Attorney At A Law Firm?
I Am Thinking Of Going To School To Pursue My Bs In Legal Studies And Wondered If That Would Allow Me To Later Become An Associate At A Law Firm?
I am a retired attorney.
An associate attorney is a new attorney at a law firm. If an associate does very well, and is not asked to leave the firm sooner, after about seven years the associate is offered a partnership or in some firms, a shareholder position.
First you need to complete your bachelor's degree. Depending on its content, legal studies may or may not be a particularly good major. Law schools accept all academic majors, but if legal studies at your school is designed for prospective paralegals (roughly equivalent to nurses in the medical profession) and not for prospective law students, then history or political science will be better majors as they will involve more critical reading and writing which is what law school is all about.
Then you need to go to law school for three years and graduate from it.
If you are thinking of a large law firm, you should go to one of the top twenty national law schools, or if you want to practice in your state, you can also go to the top law school in your state. In law school you need to compete for a spot on the best law review (student-edited legal journal) and then compete for one of the highest editorial positions on it. During the summer between your second and third years of law school, you need to do a paid clerkship at a major law firm. If you do well in the clerkship, the law firm will often hire you as an associate attorney after you finish law school. In the meantime you probably will have earned the necessary top grades. Then you need to pass the bar exam.
There are many opportunities for new attorneys in addition to becoming an associate at a law firm.

Immediate Response To Free Legal Consultation!?!?
Alright, I'Ll Try To Make This Short...
Boy Meets Girl.
Boy Loves Girl.
Boy And Girl Go To Get Married.
Girl'S In-Laws Freak Out And Get Both Parties Arrested.
Judge Thinks It'S All Bullshit And Lets Both Parties Go With Nothing To Record.
Boy Gets To Leave, Girl Is Mandated To Stay For Minimal Set Period Of Time.
Girl'S In-Laws Say They Get Lawyer And Set Up (20 Plus) Charges To Boy'S Name.
Nothing Has Happened Yet, But Girl'S Inlaws Say That The (20 Plus) Charges Will Go Through Due To The Lawyer'S Consent.
I Am The Boy.
The Girl Is My Fiance.
Their Is No Evidence To Anything.
I Have Done Nothing Incriminating.
The Only Evidence That Might Fly, Is That My Fiance'S Entire Family Are Making Sworn Statements To The Authorities And All 11 Of Them Are Agreeing To The Same Story.
(Some Of Which Even Are Reported That I Did After I Left.)
I Just Need A Free Legal Consultant That Will Listen To The Entire Story (Even If We Have To Make Multiple Calls Over A Few Days/Weeks) And Let Me Know If They Can Legally Push All (20 Plus) Of These Charges On Pure Hear-Say And Grouped Sworn Statements.
It'S Very Simple. My Fiance'S Family Is ******* Nuts (Like, Worse Than Hollywood Bullshit) And They Are Trying To Destroy Our Lives.
So Far, All These Free Legal Consultants I Find Say I Either Have To Be Setting Up A Lawsuit Or Already Been Legally Charged/Convicted To Freely Speak To Them.
I Personally Feel That Because There Isn'T Any Evidence Other Than Group Sworn Hearsay, That Nothing Will Happen, My Fiance, On The Other Hand (Who Is Still Mandated To Be In The Other State For A Few Months Due To Bullshit Ect Ect Ect) Is Almost Dying Of Stress, Anxiety, And Depression Due To The Emotional And Psychological Abuse Her Family Is Putting Her Through. (Which Can Only Be &Quot;Proven&Quot; Through Hearsay Just Like The Actual Fake Bullshit Her Family Is Doing)
I Just Wanted To Know If There Is Any Type Of Free Legal Consultation Line That Anyone Knows Of At All, Where You Just Talk To Them About What Is Going On, And They Tell You Whether Or Not You Can File, Or Not Get Filed Against.
I Really Don'T Want To Spend 30 To 100 Bucks An Hour, Just For Someone To Tell Me That I'M Not Going To Jail...
You wrote: "...I really don't want to spend 30 to 100 bucks an hour, just for someone to tell me that I'm not going to jail..."
Fine. You're not going to jail.
Look, I don't have a clue how to answer this question without some basic information. What state did this marriage occur in? How old are you two? What are the 20-odd accusations?
And what on earth were you two arrested for?
Reputable Divorce Attorneys Accepting Payment Plans?
Does Anyone Know Of Any Reputable Divorce Attorneys In The Columbus, Oh Area That Accept Payment Plans, Arrangements, And/Or Installments Rather Than A Single Lump Sum Payment?
I'm sorry but you are very unlikely to find a reputable attorney to enter this kind of agreement - unless you find a brand new attorney.
Unfortunately many family law attorneys get burned in this type of a deal. (The client makes payments until the case is over and then will stop making payments - leaving the attorney holding the bag.)
A retainer is the only way family law attorneys can receive an assurance they will be paid for the work they will do. Would a personal loan from the bank be a possibility? You would be able to give the lump sum to an attorney and then make monthly payments to the bank. Many attorneys also accept credit cards, so would it be possible for you to put the retainer on a credit card and make monthly payments that way?
What Is The Difference Between Civil Law And Criminal Law?
Criminal law is about those things that we think are plain wrong and should be punished. What is defined as a criminal offence may well be because it hurts someone else, and mostly it does, but that's not what makes it criminal - just the fact that we think it's wrong is enough to be a reason to define it as an offence. So if you are charged with something, the two sides in court are the state and you. It's something against society as a whole and society is represented by a lawyer appointed by the state to prosecute you. By "state" I mean the government - in the USA it IS the state in a state court, but in countries that aren't federal there is something equivalent. For example in the UK, all criminal cases are brought in the name of the Queen.
Civil law is what is provided to resolve disputes between people. Civil courts cannot sentence to a punishment, and the whole point of them is to come to a judgement on which side is right and make a ruling on how to put things the way they should be. Often this will be an order for monetary compensation, but it could also be an order to keep away from someone else, or anything else that puts things right.
A nice little example would come up if I stole your purse. That is a criminal offence and a criminal court could sentence me to prison or a fine. But that didn't get you your purse back, did it? You could sue me in a civil court for that. In practice the criminal court could make an order for me to compensate you so you don't need to sue, but you see what the difference is.
