Does Anyone Know If Grandparents Have Rights?
Do You Know If Grandparents Have Rights To See Their Grandchildren In Kansas?
Grandparent's rights are hard to prove in any state. In order for grandparents to be granted visitation the court wants evidence that it will be in the best interest of the child for the grandparents to have contact with the children. What further complicates the case is that the court does not want to interfere with the parenting of the child (so long as the child is not being harmed by the parents).
It's actually easier in most jurisdiction for grandparents to obtain custody of children then it is for them to obtain visitation. That is because if the parents are not properly taking care of the children, then the court will look to the grandparents as the first logical replacement for custody. But, in a visitation case the grandparents are not seeking visitation because the child is being harmed or neglected (if that were the case the grandparents would be seeking custody). They are usually seeking custody because they have no contact with the parents and the parents are denying them access to the children. While there is nothing legal saying the parents have to grant them access, there are some cases where the court will rule in the grandparents favor.
In most cases if one of the parents is deceased, then the deceased parent's parents can be granted visitation. This is also true if one of the parent's is incarcerated, serving overseas or in some cases if the parent himself (or herself) has no contact with the child (by choice or through court order).
The only other case where grandparents have a good shot at getting visitation is when the child lived with, or was raised by the grandparent for a significant amount of time. In that case you can argue that it would be determental to the health and welfare of the child to sever that relationship.
If you do wish to go for visitation then you can pick up a petition in the family court of county where the child resides. You would benefit from hiring a really good, very experienced family law attorney. He will need a build a strong case to prove that it will benefit the child for you to have visitation. Should the case go to trial, expect to be in court for anywhere from several months to a year or more.
On a personal note, grandparent visitation cases are messy and ugly. In most cases the grandparents do not win and it tears the family further apart. Before filing a petition I would urge you to consider trying to work it out diplomatically. You'll have a better chance of seeing the child, and will not bankrupt yourself in the process.
How Good Are Prepaid Legal Services?
My husband, who is an associate, and I have had a membership through PrePaid Legal Services, Inc. for about 8 years and would never not have this service. Have any of the nay-sayers tried to call an attorney for simple advice? I was an admin for a lawyer about 6 years ago and when clients simply called I charged them by the quarter hour, at a rate of $135/hour (cheap by today's standards), just for the phone call! With PrePaid these consulation calls are free, and let me tell you we get our money's worth. And, you have access to a lawyer in whatever state you have an issue in. We are landlords and have had our law firm write letters to tenants in addition to giving us legal advice in unfavorable situations. AND, the law firms associated with PrePaid Legal are top rate firms. The nay-sayers should attend one of their open houses; they'd be impressed. Plus, for an additional $1 a month you can have 24 hour access to these lawyers. So, for less than a dollar a day, can you afford NOT to have the service? Most people spend more than that on coffee a day; what do you get out of that.
Also, we totally forgot at one point that we even had the service (shame on us because there were some instances looking back where we should have used it). In that time we had contacted another law firm about getting our Will done, at an estimate of $500-$600. That alone pays for the service for up to three years!
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this service to anyone, and strongly urge everyone to get it, even if it wasn't through my husband, because I feel that strongly about it. The business is also incredible. Do you know any other way to build your own business at a startup cost of $25 (current promotion) and an overhead of less than $30 a month (you do have to have a membership to be an associate)? I don't, at least not that's legal. My husband loves this business. He's actually in Atlanta right now at a business conference and he'll be in Las Vegas in September. They have so much fun while building a strong business. It's my husband's Plan A, but it can be a great Plan B in today's insecure job market.
I urge you to at least give the service a try. Contrary to some posts I've seen, if you do decide to cancel, it is not difficult at all, but I don't know why anyone would ever want to cancel.
Legal Custody Question?
So For Anyone Who Knows About Law In The Us, I Was Wondering What Would Happen To A Child If Their Parents Were To Be Filed As Missing Persons. Would They Just Go Into The Custody Of A Close Relative? Would You Find The Parents' Will Or Can You Only Do That Once They Are Found Dead? What About If There Is Not Close Relative To Take Care Of Them?
1) Initially the child would be turned over to the State's Child protective services for temporary safeguard.
2) If the parents remained missing, the CPS would petition the court for a more permanent arrangement which is routinely granted. This removes custody of the child from the parents and places it in the CPS venue.
3) The CPS will place the child in a 'temporary' foster care home or facility. While they look for a surviving relative or family member who is both capeable and willing to take custody of the child.
if the family member is qualified then the CPS will petition and support the transfer of the child to the relative
if none is found or no family member comes forward to assume the care of the child, the child may be put up for adoption once the court is satisfied that there is no likelyhood of the parents being found or returning. Adoption is generally permanent.. so the court is careful about that.
4) Family members can also petition the court directly for custody of the child/children as can 'possible' family members (remember the infant of Anna Marie Smith )
What Is The Normal Process For Medical Malpractice?
If A Hospital Left In A Diseased Organ That A) Ruptures Causing Irreversible Damage/Death Or B) Turns Cancerous, Am I Allowed To Sue For Malpractice?
I Have Had A Blocked Bile Duct Due To Gallstones For Almost A Year Now. I Have Lost 70Lbs And Gone Through Acute Kidney Failure Twice. The Hospital Knows I Am Uninsured And Has Stabilized Me With A Few Shots And A Iv Drip Each Time Then Sent Me Home.
I Was Admitted Originally For The Kidney Failure And Never Told About The Gallbladder Needing To Be Removed Until My Second Visit. They Then Told Me It Could Kill Me If Left In But They Consider It Optional Surgery Therefore The Er Will Not Preform It Unless I Am Comatose And Jaundiced On Brink Of Death.
I Now Have A Systemic Viral Infection And Complete Fat Intolerance Which Has Lead To My Hdl Dropping Under 50. No Other Hospital Will Touch Me Because Of This ?Mistake?
How Much Worse Does This Have To Get Before I Should Consider A Lawyer?
First, you need to talk to a lawyer who specializes in medical malpractice.
Filing a medical malpractice claim is not as easy as most people assume. First, you have to be able to show that your doctors fell below the standard of care, and secondly, that that failure to follow the standard of care caused lasting, permanent harm.
Standard of Care means that which a reasonable and prudent doctor would do in same or similar circumstances; i.e., if you break your leg, 99.9% of doctors will get an x-ray before they cast. That point one percent of doctors who don't may have deviated from the standard of care, but even that does not mean that they caused you permanent harm.
I can think of a lot of reasons why doctors won't do major surgery, like removing an internal organ. For starters, if you're not stable enough to go through surgery, putting you under the knife can kill you, so they would need to wait.
Further, removing an internal organ from the get go, without giving more conservative treatments a chance, could also be construed as malpractice. Imagine if they go in and take out your gall bladder and something bad happens to you, the first thing they're going to be asked is, Did you try other, more conservative methods first? No. Guilty. (Theoretically.)
I am not saying that you have not suffered, and I am not saying to "let it go." Sometimes docs screw up, and sometimes things just happen, and there are reasons that they have to wait, as frustrating as it it. I understand -- and more importantly, I KNOW how frustrating it is when you're looking for answers and there seem to be none, and you don't understand why doctors are making the decisiosn they're making -- or not making, as the case may be. My child and I suffered the most horrendous medical malpractice. I recovered over the years; she did not. She was left permanently brain damaged.
You must seek legal counsel, if for no other reason than to put some questions to rest. You will have no rest until you find out for sure, so find out for sure. We had many, many questions, some of which were answered by counsel, more of which were answered at trial.
Call an attorney. Make sure they specialize in med/mal and are not just personal injury attorneys. They can tell you whether you can or should pursue a legal claim.
How Many Real Estate Lawyers Are There In New York City?
...And, While We'Re At It, Do You Happen To Know Any Frivolous Real Estate Lawsuits In The City?
Go to http://www.switchboard.com/Attorneys-Rea... for the list
I try to stay as far away from NYC real estate and litigation as I can. As a result I am not aware of frivolous real estate lawsuits. Having said that, with at least 2,636 real estate attorneys looking to make a good living in a pretty small geographic area, I'd say the chances were damn good. Others might say the expresion "frivolous real estate lawsuit" is innately redundant...
