Need Serious (Quick) Help, Legal Question, Self Representation, Divorce And Child Custody?
This Is A Long Question, But Please Take The Time To Read It.
I'Ll Start From The Beginning, I Have Been Married For A Few Years, The Relationship Started Getting Very Rocky As Soon As He Moved Me Away From My Family And Surrounded Me With His, This Is When I Think He Felt Like He Had Me Trapped, I Was Married To Him, Pregnant With His Child And Away From Anyone I Knew. He Began To Be Very Controlling. We Have A Little Girl Now, Who Is The Light Of My Life, And Whom I Love More Than Words Can Possibly Express. Recently Some Of My Family Came To Live With Us, And Even Though He Didn'T Like It, He'S Scared Of Everyone Except Me And Never Had The Balls To Tell Them To Leave. I Have Been A Stay-At-Home Mom Since My Daughter Was Born, That Was A Decision We Both Made. I, However, Wanted To Go To School, My Husband Didn'T Like This Idea. When My Family Was Here Though, I Was Less Scared And Enrolled Myself In Ged Classes And Made Plans To Attend College. I'D Asked My Husband For A Divorce Before, And He'D Made It Very Clear That He Didn'T Want One And He Would Contest It. I Didn'T Have Enough Money For A Lawyer For A Contested Divorce, So My Plan Was To Stick It Out Until I Graduated In A Couple Years And Then Leave Him. I Never Had Access To The Bank Account Or Any Of The Money Other Than The Cash He Would Reluctantly Give Me For Groceries. He Became Very Uncomfortable When It Became Clear That I Was Serious About Getting My Education And Also Because I Now Had Someone Around To Stand Up For Me Other Than Myself. We Got In A Huge Fight And Again I Asked For A Divorce, He Again Said No, But Started To Drain Our Bank Account Of The Few Thousand Dollars We Had In There, Behind My Back And Unbeknownst To Me. He Hired A Lawyer, Had Some Papers Drawn Up, Including Divorce Papers, But Also A Restraining Order Against Me, Preventing Me From Having Custody Of My Daughter (On The Grounds That I Would Somehow Drive 400 Miles To The Rest Of My Family, With The Car That He Knew Had No Gas, But Then Not Have Enough Money To Provide Her With Basic Necessities Once I Arrived), All Of This Behind My Back. I Was Served These Papers On The 30Th Of Last Month, They Took My Daughter Away, And I Have Been Frantically Trying To Find Legal Help Ever Since. On The Restraining Order, It Said That I Have A Hearing On Monday The 13Th And That This Is Going To Be Held In A Town I'Ve Never Heard Of, About An Hour An A Half Away, Apparently There Is Only One Chancellery Judge In The Area And He Serves 7 Counties, I Guess This Was His Soonest Available Date. I Have Talked To Every Lawyer In Town (Which Is Only 3) But All Need At Least A Grand To Do Anything For Me. One Promised To Let Me Make Payments, But After Waiting A Week For An Appointment And Selling Things To Get The $150 Consultation Fee, Told Me That He Would Need Almost 2 Grand Up Front. I Tried Everything I Could Think Of To Get The Money, Called Everyone I Knew, But No Luck. There Is One Legal Aid Service In This Area, I'Ve Been Calling And Leaving Messages For Them Almost Everyday Since She Was Taken Away But So Far They Have No Returned One Call. I Went To Their Office And Was Just Given An Extension Number To Try On The Number I'D Already Been Calling, Left A New Message For This Person, Still No Return Calls, I Guess They Are Very Busy. I'Ve Tried To Obtain A Court Advocate, But The People In My County Won'T Drive That Far, And I Can'T Get A Hold Of Anyone In The County The Hearing Is Being Held In Until Monday, Which Is Obviously Too Late. So, It Looks Like I'M Going To Be Walking In There Alone, Representing Myself. I Have Two Family Witnesses That Have Seen Him Be Violent Towards Me, They'Ve Also Seen Him Be Extremely Neglectful Of My Child. I Have Pictures Of My Daughter'S Living Conditions Now (She Is Staying With My Husband And His Mother), Which Are Deplorable And Dangerous. I'Ve Called Dcs, But I'Ve Been Told They Will Not Investigate Since There We Are Involved In This Court Thing And There Is Really Nothing I Can Do About It. I May Be Still Able To Obtain A Picture Of A Bruise That He Left On Me, He Deleted It From My Phone, But I'Ve Been Told With The Right Software It May Be Recoverable (I'M Waiting On A Cell Phone Data Cable I Ordered To Arrive, Hopefully Sometime Today). My Case Is Very Good, The Problem Is, He Has A Lawyer And I Don'T. I Don'T Know What Kind Of Lies They Are Going To Make Up, And I Have No One To Question Him And Trip Him Up In His Lies. I Don'T Know The Legal Procedures For Submitting Evidence, Or Asking Questions, Or Anything Really. I Have No Court Experience. Even If You Don'T Have Much Law Knowledge, If You'Ve Been Through Anything Like This And Can Tell Me What It'S Like And What To Expect, I Would Really Appreciate It. If You Do Have Some Law Knowledge, That'S Even Better Because I Desperately Need It.
You are in a tough situation. It looks as though you may need to represent yourself.
Here's what you do.
1- Sit down and document the marriage from beginning until now. Write everything down, try to remember dates, names, places. Find as much evidence as possible, pictures, emails, texts, receipts.
2- Bring all the evidence you can to prove you are a good mother. EVERYTHING. All the things you own of your child's. All the information you know. Bring signed statements from your child's doctor, dentist, daycare provider, all attesting to your character.
3- Demand that an investigation be done into the living conditions of your daughter, and ask that a judge also investigate you. To show and prove you are a responsible person and there is no evidence to show otherwise.
Here's the deal, likely if you have no convictions of any kind, you will get your daughter back.
After that's dealt with. FIND A LAWYER. Go to legal aid. You can't do this without one.
Probate Attorney- What's The Cost / And Purpose? ?
How Much Does It Usually Cost To Use A Probate Attourney. My Mom Passed Away And Left Money To Myself And Sister. Is It Necessary To Use An Attourney Or Is An Accountant Ok? How Long Should A Inheritence Take To Settle Through Probate Court And How Can An Attourney Speed Things Up? Finally, If My Sister Is Executer Of The Estate , Would It Be Wise And Should I Alone Use An Attourney?
The length of time: almost always takes one year. Second, the cost of the probate lawyer varies with the size and complexity of the estate. Usually, "complexity" is defined by claims against the estate and the amount of assets to be included in the estate for tax purposes. The mortgage debt on your mom's home needs to be paid off before any distribution. I realize that your late mom have sold her home due to age or she may have a medical debt. There are multiple issues. Most important, I hope you and your sister work together to divide the physical property. That there is high level of compromise between you. If the estate is a 7 figure or a modest estate then the ability to settle between the two of you will vary if compromise is not exercised. The executor should have approx. 5 certified copies of the death certificate. The government grows more complex with each decade. "Be prepared" would be my motto. Sorry for your loss and I hope all goes well over the next year.
If A Detective Wants You To Take A Lie Detector Test And You Refuse What Will Happen.?
Do You Need A Lawyer To Refuse? And Can They Get A Search Warrant Just By You Refusing?
Tell them you would be happy to take the test... AFTER talking to a lawyer.
When they pull the, "What are you afraid of" thing, just say that if they don't trust you, why would you trust them.
And don't be afraid of saying no to anything a cop tells you to do. Ask point blank, "Am I required to do this under the law?" If they say yes, and it isn't, the entire case is gone.
I believe in respecting law enforcement. However, do not be fooled. They WILL lie to get what they want. But they have rules they have to live by. Use them.
Why Are Divorce Court Laws So Gender Biased?
I Am A Woman And It Really Annoys Me. I Feel Sorry For You Men Out There.
Because feminism has made such an excellent job of portraying women as victims of mistreatment and injustice, and men as perpetrators that everyone takes it for granted even when faced with proof that that's not the way things really work. My cousin has a wife who basically abandoned one son in her home country to come here.
She married him, probably for the possibility of becoming a resident in this country, and had a daughter with him. She has, however, been a lousy wife and even a lousier mother to their daughter. She does nothing around the house and leaves it all to him and the maid, she demands unnecessary luxuries that my cousin - even with his great salary - has difficulty affording, and she spends all her time out with friends. Spite that, for years he has done his best to provide everything she requests not only for them both, but ALSO FOR HER SON BACK HOME... and he has done so with no regret but a great cost to his financial stability and mental health.
Granted, my cousin is a F-U.C * K.I-N.G MORON but now that he is finally thinking of divorcing her, he knows that - unless he can prove in court that she has been unfaithful to him or something of the sort - he and his daughter are on check because the ever wise and brilliant family courts will never grant him custody of his daughter and will force him to pay ridiculous alimony in any divorce settlement. This is all great for the taker in the relationship, which has unquestionably been her, but lousy for him and his daughter (who's only seeming purpose in her life is to serve as insurance).
It sounds like a horror story and, believe me, for him it is. Unluckily it is also very real. His only option: to be shrewd. To restrict all cash flow and make her desperate so she will have to leave and hope that their daughter becomes such a heavy burden for her that he can eventually bargain for her. It is hard for him, since he has a kind heart and he loves them both, but that's the way it is. She is spoiled goods, like too many women nowadays.
How Do Lawyers Help People?
Lawyers are trained in the law where most lay people are unfamiliar. Lawyers are classified as advocates for their clients. Being an advocate for client can mean being a prosecuting attorney helping the state with a case against a person that is charged with a crime, and additionally helping the victims of that person. An attorney also can represent those who are deemed unfit to represent themselves and speak in their best interests such as a guardianship or conservatorship role. Additionally, attorneys help clients who have been injured or damaged as a result of someone else's intentional or negligent acts against others such as a personal injury suit. Attorneys also help individuals in the sale of property, execution of wills, financial and estate plans, and many other legal documents.
Are Dui Laws Too Strict?
Virginia Law Makes 3Rd Dui In 5 Years A Felony Even If There Is No Accident Involved. Carries Stiff Jail Sentance Of A Year. I Am A Single Mother Of Three, Cannot Afford An Attourney And Have Been Charged Even After Passing 4 Feild Sobriety Tests, And Could Walk Home From Where I Was Stopped For Turning On A Yellow Light.I Am Facing Seriouis Jail Time For A Non Violent Offense. Who Will Take Care Of My Kids If I Go To Jail And Is This Fair? Can Anyone Help Me? I Don'T Believe People Should Endanger The Lives Of Others On The Road But This Was Clearly Not The Case In My Circumstance. The Children Were Also Being Cared For By A Sitter When This Occoured And Not In The Vehicle.
Some of you people were real quick to pass judgment on this woman. Especially the girl who's friend was decapitated in a car accident (which is terrible and I am very sorry to hear that). I've known people involved in alcohol-related accidents as well, but this person didn't do it.
The laws are strict in a way that makes no sense to me. A person can get a DUI after two beers. Two beers! (Maybe even one, depending) What kind of light weight can't handle two beers? There is a line and some people do not know how avoid crossing it.
What about these people out here on pharmaceutical medications prescribed by their doctor? Some of their driving skills scare me more than the way my ex boyfriend drove after parties. Before long, the state of Virginia will have us all in diapers. (I live in VA.) None of these laws are really for the benefit of the people - take the seat belt law for instance. Do people really think that law is enforced because the state is so concerned for our well being. No, it isn't. If you really think about it , you'll see that it's really the insurance companies who want it this way. The decision to wear a seat belt only affects the person wearing or not wearing one, so why treat us like children?
The only issue here is that you've had so many. Although I do not agree with the laws, they are there and that's just the way it is. I wish I could give you more legal advice, but I'm not sure what to suggest after three DU Is. I will say this: Even if you're just a social drinker with bad luck and not an alcoholic, I would suggest getting involved in alcohol recovery groups in the meantime. It shows there is a problem that you're trying to work on. It may be too late for this. The state usually tries to place children with their next of kin (grandparents, aunts, uncles, etc.)
Best wishes to you and your family.
