4 Approaches To Help Your Lawyer Help You If you want an attorney at all, you have to work closely together to be able to win your case. No matter how competent they are, they're gonna need your help. Allow me to share four important strategies to help your legal team allow you to win: 1. Be Totally Honest Or Higher Your lawyers need and expect your complete cooperation - regardless of what information you're gonna reveal in their mind. Privilege means whatever you say is stored in confidence, so don't hold anything back. Your legal team should know all things in advance - most importantly information another side could find out about and surprise you with later. 2. Provide Meticulous Records Keep a regular and factual account of all information associated with your case. Whether it's witnesses or payments being made, provide your attorneys because of the data they have to enable them to win. 3. Show Up Early For Those Engagements Not be late when you're appearing before a court and get away from wasting the attorney's time, too, when you are promptly, each time. The truth is, because you may have to discuss last minute details or perhaps be extra ready for the truth you're facing, it's a great idea to arrive early. 4. Demonstrate That You May Have Your Act Together If you've been arrested for any type of crime, it's important to be able to prove to a legal court which you both regret the actions and therefore are making strides toward improving your life. As an example, if you're facing a DUI, volunteer to get a rehab program. Be sincere and included in the community the judge is presiding over. Working more closely along with your legal team increases your chances of absolute success. Try these tips, listen closely to how you're advised and ultimately, you need to win your case.

First of all why do you have supervised visitation? You need to contact a father's rights group to help you out. Family court is like going back to the stone age. Go to legal aid services. Even if your not legally in this country they will help you do to no income. Why don't you get a landscaping or farm workers job? Even a busboy or kitchen help in a restaurant that will pay under the table? The courts always see that the woman are supposed to be the better parent. In actuality that both parents should be constant in a childs life. There have been studies done that prove this. Philadelphia Department of Human Services did their own study concerning how children react when fathers are forbidden to see the children. Also it focused on when fathers who see their child on a regular basis and is thrown into jail for not paying child support.
What the courts did along with your wife is called legal kidnapping of your children. You should refile custody in the courts and get a new hearing in order for you to get visitation or partial custody. Also, your wife can not leave the state with your children without your permission if she flies. She can not leave the country without your permission. It is kidnapping and you can report it. This past year the state of PA passed a law that if a person files a false PFA and it is found out that it is false that person will do no less than 6 months in jail for perjury. Family court is the most abused court system in the country. Fathers have no rights at all. Our basic right is thrown out. Judges won't change the sytem. Lawyers are too afraid or worried if they try to fight the system that they won't make their money. Lawyers are the problem to the system. Judges that were lawyers are lawyers who couldn't make it as lawyers and now are screwing the system even more. As a divorced father of 2 children I am always being dragged into court for one thing or another. I do see my children every week on a regular basis.
Custody Vs. Guardianship?
My Ex Currently Has Physical Custody Of Boys, We Share Joint Legal. Kids Are 15 & 16. They Came For Summer Visit & Refused To Go Back To Dad. We Are Now Battling It Out In Court. I Didn'T Force Them To Go Back. Now Ex Says He Will Give Me 'Guardianship' Not 'Custody' Of The Boys. He Is In The Military & I Guess He Can Do This Under Some &Quot;Soldier Act' From 1939. What'S The Difference Between Having Legal Guardianship Or Legal Custody. Seem Like It Would Be The Same Thing. Anybody Know?
What state are you in? Each state defines custody and guardianship a little differently.
For example, the Illinois Probate Act defines "Guardian" as a legal representative of a minor.
The Juvenile Court Act contains perhaps the best and most comprehensive definitions:
(7) "Emancipated minor" means any minor 16 years of age or over who has been completely or partially emancipated under the "Emancipation of Mature Minors Act", ...
(8) "Guardianship of the person" of a minor means duty and authority to act in the best interests of the minor, subject to residual parental rights and responsibilities, to make important decisions in matters having a permanent effect on the life and development of the minor and to be concerned with his or her general welfare. It includes but is not necessarily limited to:
(a) the authority to consent to marriage, to enlistment in the armed forces of the United States, or to major medical, psychiatric, and surgical treatment; to represent the minor in legal actions; and to make other decisions of substantial legal significance concerning the minor;
(b) the authority and duty of reasonable visitation, except to the extent that these have been limited in the best interests of the minor by court order;
(c) the rights and responsibilities of legal custody except where legal custody has been vested in another person or agency; and
(d) the power to consent to the adoption of the minor, but only if expressly conferred on the guardian in accordance with Section 2-29, 3-30, or 4-27.
(9) "Legal custody" means the relationship created by an order of court in the best interests of the minor which imposes on the custodian the responsibility of physical possession of a minor and the duty to protect, train and discipline him and to provide him with food, shelter, education and ordinary medical care, except as these are limited by residual parental rights and responsibilities and the rights and responsibilities of the guardian of the person, if any.
In AZ, A guardianship can be filed when someone other than the parent wants to be appointed by the Court to take over parental responsibilities and neither living parent (whose parental rights have not been severed [terminated or cut off] by Court order) will file papers or go to Court to oppose the appointment. Guardians take over parental responsibilities for making decisions regarding housing, medical care, and education, among other things, for as long as the guardianship lasts. An order of guardianship is good until the Court changes or dismisses it, the child turns 18, or either parent files papers to terminate the guardianship. Guardianship is based on the parents' permission, or at least their failure to object to the guardianship. If either of the
parents later changes his or her mind and lets the Court know that he or she objects to the guardianship, the Court has no choice but to end the guardianship, but may refer the matter
for investigation as to whether a Dependency is needed.
What, If Any, Difference Is There Between An Attorney And A Lawyer?
Basically, there is no difference. Technically, an "attorney" is a representative of another person, thus an "attorney in fact" is a person who has the authority to act for another. However, in common usage, "attorney" and "lawyer" mean the same thing. Most lawyers call themselves "attorneys" because it sounds better.
Has Anyone Used Attorney Anthony Griffin Of Galveston?
I Am Wondering If Anyone Knows Anything About Attorney Anthony Griffin Of Galveston, Tx. I Am Looking For A Lawyer And Was Referred To Him. Any Info Would Help.
Does Anyone Know How To Find A Retired Attorney Or Who Might Have His Old Files?
Looking For Attorney That Did A Will In 1981.
I had the exact same problem several years ago when my mother in law died. If the attorney worked for a firm, they should still have the records. If not, the attorney may have sold their practice to someone else. In that case contact the Bar Association in that state, they may be able to assist you.
The Selective Service Laws Needs To Change?
Think For A Second, &Quot;All Woman When They Turn 18 Must Register For Selective Service Or Lose College Loans, Etc.&Quot; This Is 2007. We All Benefit From Living In America. It Is Wrong To Mandate Only Males Serve In The Military If A Draft Is Put In Place. Ladies, You Should Be As Vocal For Young Men As You Would If Only Young Women Had To Register. You Can'T Have It Both Ways.
You are correct and wrong. The better view is no selective service. Really. Right now we have a system to catch the college bound males and the poorer ones at that. Not very fair. I say do away with it. You want to find the young people for some war? Drivers licenses are the easiest way to track them down. Both men and women. If the need really arises.
If we are to keep this system that we have now, pass the ERA to the constitution, and then sign up the ladies. Also, pay them equal pay.
I remember watching the draft lottery, and hearing my draft number coming up at 315. That was the first lottery. They called up until 290 in October and stopped for the year. I remember taking that card out of my wallet and tossing it into a desk drawer.
