Dwi Vs Dui............?
Are They The Same Thing
Okay, I am hear to say the first 6 answer are wrong (just trying to be informative).
DWI- Driving While Intoxicated
DUI- Driving Under the Influence
There is NO difference between the two. Roughly 40 states in the U.S. enforce a DUI (driving under the influence) as the offense. The other ten states enforce DWI (such as Missouri, Texas, New York, Minnesota, Connecticut, New Jersey, and New Hampshire, all DWI States, NOT DUI).
There are also other states that classify the offense as DWAI, OUI, DUII, OWI
DWAI (Colorado, which also enforces the DUI)
OWI (Indiana, Michigan)
You can't be charged with a DUI or DWI in these states, other then Colorado which enforces two of them.
So, it completely depends on which state you get pulled over in. Driving under the influence (DUI) or driving while intoxicated (DWI) can be giving to a driver, whether he has been drinking, or on any type of mind altering drug (including certain prescriptions). Although each state has different penalties for the offense, they are considered the same in the national database.
Hope you didn't get one, they aren't that much fun!
What Makes It A Felony????
If Someone Is Wanted For Back Check Felony, What Exactly Does This Means???? Does It Mean That The Check Tried To Be Cashed Or Simply That It Was Written Out???
Other Words, Its Only A Felony Once Someone Tries To Cash The Check, Right???? Well, How Long Does One Spend In Jail For This?
Felony check fraud depends on the state's laws, the amount for the check, and the number of times that you have broken this law. In my state, if you have repeatedly written bad checks (not sure of the exact number, but I believe it is 3 or more outstanding bad checks) it will be considered a felony. Also, if you have an extensive history of check fraud, the law demands that any additional offenses be charged as a felony. Also, if the amount of the check(s) comes to more than $1000, it will be considered a felony.
Most of the time, you can plead out for a fine, restitution to the individual or institution that the check was written to, and probation. If you are a repeat offender, you might serve 30-90 days in jail plus a fine and probation.
If You Are Paying Your Ex-Wife Alimony, Can Alimony Be Discontinuted If She Becomes Pregnant By Her Live-In?
If He Is Paying Child Support And Alimony To Ex-Wife, Which All The Money Goes Towards Her Rent And Bills,Can Alimony Discontinue If She Becomes Pregnant By Her Live-In Boyfriend. Lawyer Says If Proof He Lives There Alimony Is Discontinued, But There Is No Way Of Proving Since His Name Isn'T On Any Of The Bills. It'S Clear As Day He Does Live There Too. So Basically Ex-Husband Would Be Paying For Rent And All Utilities For Ex-Wife,Her Boyfriend, Their Baby, And His Two Kids? Does That Make Any Sense?
Usually divorce decrees stop alimony upon re-marriage, and one could argue that this is the equivalent of re-marriage, but you will need proof -- your lawyer is correct. About child support -- that is almost never stopped so long as the child is a minor. However, ask your lawyer about that!
Is Law Office Foundation Certificate, The Same As A Paralegal Certificate?
I Am Currently Looking To Get Enrolled Into A Paralegal Program, And I Have Realized That The Options Are A Certificate, Associates, And Bachelors Degree. Personally I Would Like To Obtain The Certificate First, Get Employed, Then Further My Education In The Field. My Question Is, The College I Am Thinking Of Going Through Offers A Law Office Foundation Certificate And I Am Wondering If This Is The Same As A Paralegal Certificate?
I have never even heard of a "law office foundation certificate". You need to be very careful of these "law schools" - a lot of them are just scams. Any classes that you take should be ABA approved.
"Certificates" are a waste of time and/or money. In today's tight job market, legal employers want their employees to have BACHELORS degrees.
Please be aware of what you are proposing on getting yourself into. Please do more research first. Reminder: We are in a World-wide Recession. Consider career paths that have available jobs.<<<<<<<
Warning> Jobs in the field of Law are drying up fast!! This is just not a good field to invest time and/or money into. This is a SHRINKING, crumbling, and dying vocational field. Many reasons. Many people today (mistakenly) think they can do their own legal work, thanks to the Internet. Also, we simply already have way too many Legal Professionals - we have an absolute glut!! ("Legal Professionals" includes, but is not limited to: Attorneys/Lawyers, Paralegals, Legal Assistants, Legal Secretaries, Bailiffs, Court Reporters, etc, etc)
There are no jobs in this vocational field. My family, coworkers, friends, acqaintances, etc. are being laid off left and right in this vocational field.
Regarding being a Paralegal: Employers (usually law firms) in the field of Law today want employees with Bachelors degrees from traditional colleges/universities. Those "certificates" you see advertised aren't worth the paper they are printed on - they are generally scams. (I found this out the hard way.)
Cost of law school to be lawyer, approx $150,000+.
Be prepared to take on a lot of debt.
Even if you finish law school, you won't be able to find a job when you are done. Since this vocational field is shrinking, many new attorneys/lawyers are, themselves, having to work "down" as Paralegals, Legal Assistants, Legal Secretaries, Bailiffs, Court Reporters, etc, etc, to simply try to keep some of their bills paid <<this would be your competition. And the competition is fierce!!
Now... the law schools know this, but they won't tell you the truth >that the job market/economy is just saturated with way too many Legal Professionals. Instead the schools will feed you a fairytale and will lie to you. The root of the problem is we have too many law schools. We are in a recession, and the schools are fighting for their own survival - they will tell students anything to get to the students' money. (Which is why they won't tell you the truth about the job market for the field of Law.) And these schools continue to recruit and churn out even more graduates.............Remember: law schools are BUSINESSES - their top concern is making money for themselves.
If you don't believe me, then just do a search here on Yahoo Answers to see what other posters are saying about the current status of the field of Law. Call some local law firms - ask to speak to the Manager of Human Resources - ask them if they are hiring; ask them what they think about job availability in the field of Law..................
In the book "So You Want to be a Lawyer?" by Marianne Calabrese and Susanne Calabrese (ISBN 0-88391-136-1): "The United States has more lawyers than any other country in the world. About 38,000 students graduate >each year< from the 200+ law schools in the United States. The competition is very keen for jobs and clients." - Even Associate Justice Antonin Scalia (who served on the U.s. Supreme Court for more than 20 years) says there are too many lawyers. (9/14/2008)

If you want a job when you are done with your studies, consider and look into the fields of >>>Healthcare or Information Technology! I spoke to a career counselor from Jobs and Family Services, and HE told me that these areas are where the jobs are, and future job availability! and scholarships!

Hired A Lawyer In June 2012 Over A Personal Injury Its Been 6+ Months And I Got Some Papers And Notices From Attornney Then I Got A Huge Packet I Had To Fill Out, Sign And Have It Notorized And Mail Back. I Did That And They Got It Back 1 Week After They Sent It To Me. Now I Just Wait
About 3 Weeks Later In End Of October I Get A Phone Call From Attorney Secretary Asking If I Was Maried And If So Need Your Spouses Name And Social. I Call Back And Say No Im Not Married.
They Said My Case Was Ready And Will Be Filled On This Date. Which Was 4 Days After They Called Me.
After Calling Them The First Secretary Said I Was Not A Client. The Second Secretary Told Me That They Never Got My Plaintiff Fact Sheet When 3 Weeks Prior They Said They Did Get It.
Now They Say They Will File So I Call To Check The Status And They Said I Got The Phone Call In Error Your Case Is Not Being Filed Yet???
I Wait It Out A 2 Weeks Call Back I Can Never Get An Attorney Or Someone Over Those Dumpy Secretarys! I Finnaly Get A Real Knowledgeable Person On The Phone And They Say The Attorney Is Still In Littigation?
Whats Going On? One Minute It'S Being Filed, Next Minute They Dont Know Who I Am, Then Another Lady Knows Who I Am But They Never Got The Plaintiff Fact Shee, Then They Did Get The Fact Sheet But Were Not Going To File Yet????
How Can I Talk To My Attorney? Should I Find A Diffrent Attorney Or Should I Drop This Greeseball Crap All Together?
There Are Other People Who Filed The Same Suit I Have And 6 Already Settled Out Of Court. Why Is My Attorney Dragging His Feet With Me And His Personell (Staff) Giving Me The Run Around?
I Dont Want Pitty I Want Answers!
I hope that every document you submitted that you made a copiy of it for yourself. As soon as you called that attorney they should have set up an appointment for you with the attorney and you would have been asked to sign a document (means you hired them), then the paralegals would have begun working on your case which would include writing letters to your doctor(s), getting bills from your injuries, asking for a specific letter from your doctor that would tell what you injured and what percent you would be unable to do the work you used to do (if you were hurt that you couldn't work then there probably would be litigation/trial), and they would have sent the attorney your x-rays and data reports, and if it was a car accident they would have had to ask for the police report(s). If your accident was serious then there would be depositions. As I recall a case needs to be thru the court system within 2 years so those secretaries better get off their buts.
If you wanted to you can call the clerk of court for the type of case it is and ask if your case has been filed yet or not. How a person begins a case is the attorney INITIALLY files a document that says he's your attorney. If that has not been filed then you don't have a case yet. It takes a simple signature to do that. Ok, so it's not been done yet. Change attorneys. Tell the new one the old one didn't work for you. Attorneys know that no money will change hands from you to an attorney so the new attorney can just start the case for you.
Not all cases are settled out of court. The ones we worked on went on for a couple of years and were extensive. From any win an attorney gets 1/3, the attorney pays the other 1/3 toward your bills, and you get the final 1/3. So because he's dragging his feet it probably means the win isn't worth his while (too small), or he truly could be in litigation with a large case, idk.
But definitely call another pi attorney and get an appointment and get this thing moving pronto...get an appointment, take in all your information including x-rays and doctor records, and time off from work and insurance policy and the other guy's insurance policy (if it was an accident).
Does Anybody Know A Good Traffic Attorney In Tempe, Az?
I Got A Photo Speeding Ticket In The Mail And Want To Fight It In Court. The Fine Isn'T Too Bad, I Just Don'T Want The Points On My License.
Save your money. You can beat a traffic ticket without an attorney. A photo speeding ticket might be hard but you still have to go to court. Check out the website below, I used it and found valued information to get out of it. Good luck
