3 Strategies To Know You've Picked The Correct Lawyer It's pretty intimidating to endure a legal court system, specifically if you lack confidence with your legal team. Allow me to share three important strategies to understand that you've hired the best lawyer: 1. They Are Experts In Your Form Of Case What the law states is normally tricky and this requires specialists to tackle the tough cases. When you want a legal professional, seek out individual who relates to the issue you're facing. Even though a relative or friend recommends you make use of a firm they know, should they don't use a focus that's similar to your case, keep looking. Whenever your attorney is surely an expert, especially in the difficulty you're facing, you know you've hired the right choice. 2. The Lawyer Includes A Winning Record Dependant upon the circumstances, it could be challenging to win an instance, especially if the team helping you has little to no experience. Look for practices that have won numerous cases that apply to yours. Even though this is no guarantee which you case is going to be won, it will give you a far greater shot. 3. They Listen And Respond In the event the attorney you've chosen takes time to hear your concerns and react to your inquiries, you've probably hired the best one. No matter how busy they can be or how small your concerns seem from their perspective, it's critical that they respond to you inside a caring and timely manner. From the purpose of view of a regular citizen who isn't informed about the judicial system, court cases may be pretty scary you want updates as well as think that you're area of the solution. Some attorneys are just considerably better to your case as opposed to others. Ensure you've hired the best team to your circumstances, to ensure that you can placed the matter behind you as quickly as possible. Faith within your legal representative is the first task to winning any case.

How Can I File For Child Custody Without An Attorney?
How Can I File For Child Custody Without An Attorney? Children Are Being Abused And Went To Live With Me. I Cant Afford An Attorney But Too High Income For Legal Aid.
there are "groups" on the net that have vast files of legal documents, start typing in names that pertain to Custody and find 2 or 3 to join, once a member they will be able to either help or steer you in the right direction. You can also go to your local library and use their Law Books. Filing a motion will cost you a standard fee, but no where near what a lawyer will charge. Remember to be as accurate as possible with your wording, but also understand the Court will be lenient due to the fact you are a layman. Do not let the paperwork overwhelm you, once you get into it, you will find it isn't as difficult as it may seem. You can also call legal aid for pointers or at least a hint as to where to begin. Law Students are also a good source of information.
I Need Help Anybody Who Knows About Ca Working Laws?
I Work Part Time At A Retail Store, But Today I Was Supposed To Report For An 8 Hr Shift. When I Arrived The Store Was Closed. About 15 Minutes Later The Visual Merchandiser From My Store With Whom I Was Supposed To Open Told Me Her Car Had Stoped Working And She Would Contact My Manager And Call Me Back. 10 Minutes After She Called Back And Said She Was Definitely Not Showing Up For Work And That She Could Not Get Ahold Of The Manager But That The Next Manager Would Come Within The Next 30 Minutes So I Should Just Wait Since It Would Be A Waste Of Time To Go Home And Come Back. I Waited An Hour Outside Work For Someone To Show Up. When I Asked My Manager If I Would Get Paid For The Hour I Waited Outside She Said I Wouldnt But That I Could Just Stay And Hour Longer To Complete My 8 Hour Shift. Is There Some Kind Of Law That I Can Refer To About This Or Does It Vary By Company. Please Help.
if you had not worked at all you would have been covered by the reporting time law which would have required you tp be paid for one half the scheduled shift up to 4 hours BUT you did get to work so that is a moot point....
since the manager wanted you to stay that could be considered "on call" time and as such should be paid.
did they suggest you just wait or instruct you to wait?
if they instructed you to wait they must pay that time, if it was just a suggestion, and you could leave if you wanted then they do not have to pay you....
TALK to someone higher up about your concerns and see if they won't take care of this for you.........
I Need Some Serious, Honest Legal Advice, Please Help!!?
Ok, This Is A Pretty Long Story, Please Read The Entire Post, Ill Try To Shorten It Down As Much As I Can. First Off, I'M 19 Years Old, At The Times Of The Crimes Talked About Below, I Was 17 And Prior To This I Had No Criminal Record At All. I Live In North Carolina. In June Of 2010 I (Shamefully) Accompanied 4 &Quot;Friends&Quot; While Breaking Into A House. (I Know I Know, Its Terrible) Anyway, Myself Along With These 4 People Broke Into Someones House In The County I Live In. We Got Away With It. So, 2 Weeks Later, We Did It 2 More Times, In Another County. Again, I Know Its Awful And Terrible. The 3 Times This Took Place, I Either Sat In The Vehicle Or Stood Somewhere Outside The House. I Was The &Quot;Look Out Guy&Quot;. A Few Weeks Down The Road, The Police Came To Question One Of The Guys Involved. He Was The &Quot;Leader&Quot; I Guess You Could Say Of The Whole Thing. He Drove The Car, And Did Most Of The Stealing. Turns Out, At One Of The Houses They Broke Into, A Note Signing Him Out Of School Early Was Found In The Driveway Of One Of The Houses. Well, The Police Questioned Him, And To Sum It All Up, He Cracked. Told The Police Everything. They Only Knew Of Us Being Involved In One Home, And He Told Them Of All Three As Well As Everyone Involved. To Save Some Time, I'M Gonna Jump Ahead Here A Little. The Police Found Stolen Goods In His Vehicle As Well As Another Persons Involved Vehicle. As Well As They Found Out That 2 Other People Involved Pawned Several Of The Items., And The Police Recovered Some Pawned Items As Well, With Ticket Stubs Displaying The Names Of Those Who Pawned Them. They Questioned Everyone But Me. Before They Came To Me, I Went To Them. I Called Up The Next County Over'S Sheriffs Office And Told Them Everything. I Even Rode With A Detective, Pointing Out The Houses We Broke Into, In Doing This, I Hoped I Would Help Myself A Little. Turns Out Down The Road, This Did Nothing But Incriminate Me More, And, Get This, The Officer Whom I Rode With Denies Ever Speaking With Me!?!?!?! I'M Gonna Skip Forward Here To Give You The Upshot Of The Whole Mess. In August Of 2011 I Was Charged With 2 Counts Of Misdemeanor B&E And 2 Counts Of Misdemeanor Larceny. Because My &Quot;Friends&Quot; Lied And Said I Went Into The House In The County I Live In 2 Times To Steal Things. I Spent 3 Days In Jail And Was Placed On Probation For 1 Year, And Ordered To Pay $1200. That'S The Value Of The Thins Taken From The House In My County. Whew, Long Story. Fast Forward A Year I Paid Every Penny Back To The County I Live In, And Served A Successful Probation Term. Well At The Tail End Of My Probation Term For My County, I Finally Get Tried For The 2 Houses That Were Broke Into In The County North Of Mine. Well, This Is What Happened. I Get Charged With 2 More Counts Of Misd. B&E And 2 More Counts Misd. Larceny. Placed On Probation For 18 Months And Ordered By The Courts To Pay A Total Of $5,880!!!!!!!!!!! Here'S Where My Problem Occurs And Where The &Quot;Justice Will Be Served&Quot; Saying Starts To Crumble. In All Of This, I Was The Only One Convicted Of Any Crimes, The Only One Placed On Probation And The Only One Ever Ordered To Pay A Cent Back!! Out Of 5 Total People, Just Me! Ready For Another Curve Ball, When The Da Of The County Of Which The 2 Houses Were Broken Into Read Over The Crimes, He Stated That I Was The Least Involved To The Judge, And The Judge Even Read Off Everyone'S Name Who Was Supposed To Be Charged And Held Liable For The Fines. Fast Forward Till Today, June 5,2013. Nothing Has Changed, No One Else Was Charged, The State Put Everything On Me And It Stuck. I Still Owe The Other County Almost Five Thousand Dollars, And Am Still On Probation. My Probation Will Be Checked Over To See If I Am Complying With The Terms In Few Weeks, And I'M Not. Because I Do Not See It As Justice That I Have To Pay Everyone'S Debt To Society Again. So, My Probation Officer Will Likely Violate Me, And I May Go To Jail Right Then. Or I Will Be Given A Court Date, And Have To Defend Myself As To Why I'M Not Complying. My Question To Anyone On Here, Who Knows Anything About Law Or Court Is, What Should I Do?? Plz Help Me Out Here. I Cant See How Any Judge Can See This As Justice!? There Are Probably Things I Left Out, But That'S About All I Can Remember. I By No Means Think I Have A Right To Get Out Of Paying Anything At All To The Other County, But, I Do Not Think I Should Have To Pay Everyone'S Part Again! If You Have Any Sort Of Helpful Info, Please Share It With Me. Thanks For Reading If You Read The Whole Thing, I Know Its A Book.
First off let me say... paragraphs!! That was hard as heck to read.
I agree with the first answer that above all you need a lawyer. You are entitled to court appointed counsel so take it by all means. Quit worrying about the other people involved. You need to worry about yourself and do anything and everything that is required through probation. Violating that is pure stupidity and will only get you in deeper trouble by being defiant. The judge will have no patience for your little protest and you're only going to make things worse for yourself.
From here on out you need to not do anything at all wrong but abide by what the court has imposed. You're in a big mess but stay out of further trouble and someday you can possibly get this far far behind you.
Since there are multiple charges I don't know if it will be possible but hopefully some day you can get this all expunged from your record. But that is gonna be a couple of years off until you can qualify if at all. So in the meantime get with the program and do what has been required. Get a lawyer to help you get this reduced or at least argued to the judge in a more favorable way for you. You're gonna lose in the worst way every time without a lawyer, period.
Here is a link to expungement law in NC that may someday apply to you http://www.ncga.state.nc.us/EnactedLegis... Read over these but I think the law that may apply to you begins at the bottom of page 3 of this link. You can research lots more online too.
Good luck and I hope this helps!

Divorce Attorney Says Divorce Taking Long Because Of &Quot;Misnumbered Documents&Quot; Is This For Real?
We Signed All Documents October 15, 2007. It'S Now February 22, 2008!! Attorney Said That Its Taken So Long Because Previously Filed Docs Were Misnumbered/Out Of Order. What The Heck ?! Could This Be True? It'S An Uncontested No Fault Divorce!
My uncontested divorce took precisely 21 days from the time the docs were signed but I am sure this varies by state and even local court and we had no children. If you want the truth, it is probably your attorney's ineptitude causing it. I had a lousy attorney but fortunately hers was on top of things and got everything filed very timely. Assuming everything is negotiated, you might want to ditch the attorney, look into this yourself and save some money. You probably don't need an attorney to finish it for you at this point.
P.S. Be VERY careful of people who try to quote statistics in their advice, especially when they start citing church studies!!!!!
Can I Get A Lawyers Help From Il For A Pa Divorce?
I Was With My Wife For 16 Years And As Of 2007 Sept. We Have Not Lived Together We Lived In Pa At The Time. But At The Time Things Went To Hell She Just Asked Me To Leave And The Business We Had Closed Due To Finance. I Moved To Another State Il. Now This Month She Has Sent Me Papers From Pa To Go To Court For Spousal Support. When I Left There Was No Income Coming In She Let All Payment Go Let Both Houses Go And Ran Up All The Credit Cards To The End And Now She Wants Spousal Support. I Have Found A Job Here In Il And She Has One There. Since We Are Both Working Will She Get Spousal Support. Also Can I Get A Il Lawyer To Work On A Case From Pa.Help Im So Lost Also Last Thing We Found Out 3 Years After We Got Married My First Divorce Never Went Through Does This Make A Difference Even Though For 16 Years We Did Everything As Husband And Wife.Bought Houses Cars And Got Loans Together.We Have A Marriage License But Does It Make A Diff Since Im Not Legally Divorced From My First Wife
You need a lawyer. First it's a big deal that your first divorce never happened and therefore your 2nd marriage is illegal. Is PA a common law state? Only a few states do. Did you live in PA the whole time?
As for spousal support, if you make substantially more than she does, she may have a claim for it. Spousal support is granted when a family had a certain income and then with the separation, her income is substantially decreased. It is also awarded when the wife did not work to take care of the house/children as agreed to by the spouses. Now she will have a much harder time reentering the work force.
As for the payments, you would both have been responsible for the joint house to begin with. By leaving, you did not abandon all mortgage payments. Usually the asset is sold and the money split evenly. You need to prove that she maxed out the credit cards after you split and if it was not for money for the joint assets (upkeep on the house, children's tuition) you may not have to pay for that.
You need to get a lawyer in PA. As lawyers must pass an individual state bar, a lawyer in IL cannot represent you in PA.
I can't believe you knew for 13 years that your marriage was not valid and you did nothing to make it so. All the loans will be split (house, car, etc). You don't have a legal marriage license though--I'm not sure how you got it to begin with since they are suppose to check your divorce papers first. In order to a common law marriage not to be recognized, you must be clear that your intention was to not be married. It might be argued by a lawyer that since she KNEW that your marriage was illegal and invalid at 3 years into it and did nothing to ensure you fixed that problem, she was not intending to be married.
Is your divorce final now? If you are still not divorced from wife one, wife 2 cannot win b/c you could never have been married legally.
Usually if you filed jointly for so many years and lived as man and wife in a common law state, it would mean you were married. However if she makes more than you do or roughly the same, her claim for spousal support will be bogus. You didn't mention divorce papers but if you aren't divorced from her (assuming the marriage is ruled as valid) she can't get spousal support either since a spouse can't sue his/her spouse.
