What Are The Drawbacks Of Being A Paralegal, Legal Aid, Legal Secretary?
Being a paralegal or legal secretary requires one to be detail oriented, be able to multi-task and handle clients with various degrees of hardships who have no where else to turn. The clients are understandably upset and need someone to help. If the attorney is not available and the client is anxious or needs immediate assistance that isn't available it is often put on the shoulders of the paralegal/legal secretary. There is a high degree of stress and often times long hours. But, those are the drawbacks. These drawbacks are off-set by a competive wage, a good relationship (hopefully) with your boss and other employees, feeling the satisfaction of clients who have positive results and the personal satisfaction in doing a job that really matters to people. If you are energetic and dedicated and treat your work as more than a job (as a career) then the positives really outweight the drawbacks.
Does Anyone Know A Good Pro-Bono Custody Lawyer In Illinois?
I Am Pregnant And The Father Is Unfit... I Want To Make A Preemptive Strike To Keep Him Away From This Baby Completely. I Dont Have Excess Money To Spend On A Lawyer, But I Believe That I Need Legal Help In This Case.
First, you can't do anything against the father of a child until the baby is born. An attorney won't do anything until then.
If you aren't married, then the father has no legal rights to the child anyways. So lucky you on that. It will buy you some time. But you better have a damn good reason to keep a child away from their father. (i.e. domestic violence, substance abuse, serious criminal record ALL DOCUMENTED CASES...and that's pretty much it)
If you're looking for pro bono, you can file for child support with the state's Department of Revenue and they will help you get child support for free (and if you plan on using medicaid or welfare of any kind, be prepared for this anyways); however, they won't do anything in regards to custody.
As far as custody goes, you can call your county clerk's office and they should be able to direct you to legal aid or pro bono services. You will have to qualify (and that's actually pretty tough to do).
I do want to say that, pregnancy is a tough time...hormones are raging...you probably don't feel good. Emotions run high. If the guy isn't any of the above with having a record of problems, you're just going to look like another pregnant nut who got mad and is using a child as a pawn to hurt the father. Judges don't like it and you'll get crap for it. BUT if the guy is a sleazeball, then you do have options. You need to realize though, that even after all that, if he wants to see the child, there is essentially not a thing you can do to stop it. I previously worked for a law firm where a man who was convicted, not accused, CONVICTED of child pornography was still allowed to see his son. Albeit, supervised visits, but still got to see him.
It will be easier on everyone if you guys can get along at least civilly...Making it harder on him, really does make it harder on you...I promise.
After reading your additional information, my answer still applies:

Motorcycle Accident - Injury Settlement?
Since I Have Never Been In An Accident, I Am Not Sure What To Expect So I Need Your Help.
A Car Behind Me Hit Me And I Was Thrown Off My Motorcycle. Although I Was Able To Get Up And Did Not Want Or Need To Go To The Emergency Room, I Am Now Feeling It - The Soreness Especially In My Neck, Shoulders, And Back.
A Claim Was Made With An Insurance Company And Thankfully The Other Driver'S Insurance Will Cover All Expenses To Repair My Motorcycle. The Insurance Agent Asked If There Were Any Injuries And I Informed Them That I Was Not Taken To The Emergency Room But That I Plan To Go To The Doctor To Get A Check-Up.
They Made Me An Offer Of Paying My Medical Bills For The Check Up Along With A $500 For The Inconvenience.
Now This Is Where I Need Help -
Some People Have Advised That $500 Is Basically An Insult And That I Should Have Requested For A Better Offer Because My Life Was Endangered And I Was Thrown Off My Motorcycle.
Is This The Best Settlement I Can Get? Should I Have Gotten Or Expected More?
Please Advise - Thanks In Advance.
If you don't want your life to be "endangered" then don't ride motorcycles. The insurance company and the other driver don't owe you for that. You also can't be paid because you "could have died".
They owe you for your actual damages and will give you a little something for pain and suffering. If your only medical bill is a check with your family dr, a prescription or 2 and a few days of soreness - then $500 plus your meds is a good settlement. A visit with your family doc is about $100-$125. Prescriptions usually less than $50. So, $500 for pain and suffering for $175 in bills is not an insult at all. Who ever told you that is an idiot.
There is nothing wrong with telling the company that you want to see how you feel in another 2 weeks. That way, you can take a couple of weeks and see how you feel then. If you're feeling better then go ahead and settle. If you're still having to see the dr, ask them to follow back up with you in another 30 days.
If you are still treating, the insurance company will just continue to follow up with you every 30-60 days - to see how you are feeling and whats going on with your treatment. When you're ready to settle do so.
If your bills are more than a check out then the insurance company will have to have you sign a medical authorization. That form will allow the insurance company to order copies of your medical bills/records. When you are done treating the company orders the bills/records. Once it comes in, they evaluate the information and make an offer. You can accept the offer or counter offer. It's a negotiation. Once you reach an agreement - the company has you sign a release that ends your claim once and for all. In exchange you get the agreed upon amount.
Just call the adjuster and have a conversation with them about the situation and any concerns you have.

What Ks Laws Govern The Duration Of Child Support? (Laws, Not &Quot;Guidelines&Quot;)?
I Need To Know What Conditions Make A Child Not Eligible For Continued Parental Support, Like &Quot;Turning 18&Quot;, &Quot;Getting Married&Quot;, Etc. Also, If Support Is Normally Extended For An Adult (18) Still Attending High School, Does It Have To Be A Conventional Attendance Type School, Or Do Online Hs Courses Still Meet The Requirements? I Need To Know Which Kansas Statutes Specifically Address The Child'S Eligibility For Continued Support.
Child support ends when the child gets married. If the child is still in high school while turning 18, child support is usually ordered until the child graduates.
There are no laws regarding this. There are guidelines. Your child support order would override any guidelines set by your state.
How Do I Represent Myself In Probate Court?
My Daughters Grand Father On Mothers Side Is Trying To Take Full Custody Of My Child I Have Joint Legal Custody Of Her. I Have Done Nothing Wrong To Get Her Taken Away From Me. He Thinks That He Can Prove Her Unfit. I Have No Money For A Lawyer Right Now Can I Represent My Self And If I Fail Can I Get A Lawyer And Appeal Any Decision Made.
Grandpa can't do that unless both parents are unfit and the court awards him custody.
You have the right to represent yourself in court "pro se" on your own behalf, but make sure that you know what you are doing. Also, representing yourself in court is going to be very difficult, especially when your emotions are at stake. You need an unbiased party to represent you.
To ease your mind, grandparents have little or no rights when it comes to child custody/visitation. The US Supreme court has already ruled it so in Troxel v. Granville. Look it up.
