Is A Career As A Psychiatrist Or A Criminal Lawyer More Beneficial?
I Know Both Take A Lot Of Schooling But It Seems Like Its Worth It In The Long Run, I Would Love To Be A Criminal Lawyer And Defend People But I'M Not Sure How Secure The Job Is And A Psychiatrist Is A Lot Of School But I Would Really Love To Help People And It Seems Like A Job That Will Always Be Needed. What Do You Reccomend? Any Answers Or Info Will Be Helpful Please!
Neither one. You'd be wasting your time and your money.
A psychiatrist is a medical doctor with a specialty in psychiatry. That would take you about 10 years in college and medical school and you would run up a debt of about $250,000.00. And psychiatrists are very few and far between. You would have to create your own business as they are generally not employed by clinics or hospitals. So, you would be on your own.
As far as being a lawyer, perhaps you are not up to date about the legal field. The legal field is a total glut and has been for several years. That means lawyers are a dime a dozen. Law schools are turning out new lawyers by the thousands every year and there are no jobs for them,.
First, you go to law school and graduate. All law students in all law schools study the same thing. They all learn the basics of all the law, so trying to specialize in something like criminal defense would be almost impossible. Then you try to get a job with a law firm as education without several years of practical experience is worthless. Here's a clue: LAW FIRMS ARE NOT HIRING! It is virtually impossible for new law graduates to get a job. About the only thing they can get is doing contract research at minimum wage.
There are many law graduates now suing their law schools because of the promises of jobs and now they find it impossible to get one.
A recent news story on TV showed a top graduate of a New York Law School was suing them because he could not get hired by anybody in the city of New York. He was working as a waiter in a pizza shop making minimum wage. His debt from law school was $230,000.00. He will be 65 by the time he gets that paid off. If that's what you want to do, ENJOY!
Do Canadian Lawyers Sue A Lot For Medical Malpractice?
Serious Question Given That It Is A Single-Payer Country. Is Medical Malpractice Suits In Canada, Where The Government Is The Defendant, As Rampant As Medical Malpractice Suits Are Here In The States?
After Obesity And Smoking, The Biggest Medical Expense In The Us Is Due To Tort Law.
There are several for this...
1. Loser-pays. Canada has a loser-pays legal system. If you sue someone and loose, a judge may declare the case 'without merit' and order the plaintiff to pay the defendants legal and/or the court costs. It avoids 'blackmail' lawsuits which you get in the US where the doctors/insurance settles merely to avoid the cost of a lawsuit.
2. No medical damages. Because of universal health care, you typically can't sue for any medical costs to correct the issue since they would be covered. Any medical costs you suffer as a result are automatically covered. Also, since you are covered, you don't need to sue immediately in order to get money for care.
3. Liability limits. In Canada there are absolute liability limits on non-deliberate damages for pain and suffering. This is based on inflation and sits around $330,000. Loss of work damages are not so limited, but typically costs issue maximums of around $1M -- the general reason being that if you were in a profession which could earn much more than this... you'd carry your own insurance.
4. Better regulation/certification. Canadian doctors are better monitored and because the province owns all the hospitals and there are a limited number of provinces... you typically don't get incompetent doctors moving around. Doctor rating sites, licensing agencies (college of physicians), etc. make it much easier to deal with a problem doctor.
5. Arbitration. Most provinces require malpractice claims to go through an arbitration process of some sort. The province usually wants to settle (since it will be paying the medical costs anyway) and the lawyers usually want to settle (since they are capped in awards anyway). Most judges are unlikely to award much more than the arbitrator decides anyway. Usually in these cases, fault is fairly obvious and there is little reason to draw things out in court.

What Is Best For My Child/ Fathers Rights?
I Am Due In Four Weeks And The Father And I Have Been Off And On. I Love Him But He Doesn'T Treat Me Right And Refuses To Talk About His Son Or Anything Regarding The Matter. He Had Even Said That He Views His Son As A Burden To His Life. I Wish That He Would Have Some Sort Of Fatherly Pride And Want To Be There For His Son. No Matter How Hard I Try He Pulls Away. He Calls Me Names For Even Bringing Up.Child Support. I'M Only 19 Working A Full Time Job And Will Be Going To School. I Really Can'T Do It All Without Some Sort Of Assistance. I Just Have No Idea What To Do. The Thing Is He Lives In A State Over And Has No Job. Would It Just Be Better To Completely Leave Him Off Everything And Not File For Support. I'M Just Afraid If I Ask He Will Get Vengeful And End Up Being More Of A Dick. I Just Think Its Best If My Child Had His Father In His Life Or Out And Not Disappointing Him The Whole Time .
I'm sorry about your situation. Some men are good at making children, but stink at caring for them. You need to make the best of this and care for your child. He has a legal responsibility to provide support for any children he fathers.
Because of this situation, you have to do the right thing for the child. If you let the father slide on child support, he won't do his part. Fill out all the forms and let the system figure out how to make him pay.
As the child's only parent, you are the sole custody parent. If the man wants to grow up. You might consider allowing him to see the child. But I would make that something he had to earn. He should be 100% behind you. Your carrying his child. I don't care if he hates you. The fact that his child is inside you should make him act like an adult. A real man wants his child cared for and happy, even if he can't get along with the mom.
Do you think he would be different if you weren't expecting ? If you say yes, than you know who your dealing with, a little boy looking for a good time, not a man.
I suggest you look for real advice. A woman's group or an agency that can make sure you don't just get ignored by him. Just be careful, if he deserves custody, he has to earn it. By paying support and working with you. The fact that he is the father means nothing. You know you will love your child. Find a man that loves you and the child. The other one needs to pay up and grow up.

The Fair Labor Standards Act's (FLSA) basic requirements are:
Payment of the minimum wage;
Overtime pay for time worked over 40 hours in a workweek;
Restrictions on the employment of children; and
The FLSA has been amended on many occasions since 1938. Currently, workers covered by the FLSA are entitled to the minimum wage of $5.15 per hour and overtime pay at a rate of not less than one and one-half times their regular rate of pay after 40 hours of work in a workweek. Various minimum wage exceptions apply under specific circumstances to workers with disabilities, full-time students, youth under age 20 in their first 90 days of employment, tipped employees and student-learners. Special rules apply to state and local government employment involving fire protection and law enforcement activities, volunteer services, and compensatory time off (instead of cash overtime pay). Employers are required to keep records on wages, hours, and other items which are generally maintained as an ordinary business practice.
The FLSA child labor provisions are designed to protect the educational opportunities of youth and prohibit their employment in jobs and under conditions detrimental to their health or safety. The child labor provisions include some restrictions on hours of work for youth under 16 years of age and lists of hazardous occupations too dangerous for young workers to perform. See YouthRules! for additional information on child labor rules for teens, parents, educators and employers
Wages required by the FLSA are due on the regular payday for the pay period covered. Deductions made from wages for such items as cash or merchandise shortages, employer-required uniforms, and tools of the trade, are not legal if they reduce the wages of employees below the minimum wage or reduce the amount of overtime pay due under the FLSA.
In order for the FLSA to apply, there must be an employment relationship between an "employer" and an "employee." The FLSA also contains some exemptions from these basic rules. Some apply to specific types of businesses and others to specific kinds of work.
There are a number of employment practices which the Fair Llabor Standards Act does not regulate. For example, the FLSA does not require:
(1) vacation, holiday, severance, or sick pay;
(2) meal or rest periods, holidays off, or vacations;
(3) premium pay for weekend or holiday work;
(4) pay raises or fringe benefits;
(5) a discharge notice, reason for discharge, or immediate payment of final wages to terminated employees; and
(6) pay stubs or "W-2"s.
The FLSA does not provide wage payment or collection procedures for an employee's usual or promised wages or for commissions in excess of those required by the FLSA. Also, the FLSA does not limit the number of hours in a day, or days in a week, an employee may be required or scheduled to work, including overtime hours, if the employee is at least 16 years old. However, some states do have laws covering some of these issues, such as meal or rest periods, or discharge notices.
The above matters, which are not covered by the FLSA, are generally for agreement between the employer and the employees or their authorized representatives.
Having searched the Virginia code, I could find no Virginia law requiring a specific work period (except for child labor.)
I recommend that you receive professional legal advice.
Question About Wills And Free Lawyer Advice?
If A Printed Living Will That'S Good In All 50 States Is Made Out And Notarized ,And Later A Death Happens To Both Couples (If The Will States An Administrator ) Does This All Still Have To Go Through Probate Court, Or Is Everything( Property Etc) Just Executed To The Parties (Willed ) That It Is Meant To Go With And Specific Instructions Who Nothing Is To Go To? This Is In Missouri . And Also Is Their An Actual Free Lawyer Place That Gives The Answer To This That Doesn'T Charge Any Fee That'S Online? I See Some That'S Free Then Later See Where They Charge A Fee.
Uh, a LIVING will is something very different that a will directing distribution of a person's assets, and has nothing to do with asset distribution.
If it's really a will and not a living will, yes it still has to be filed with probate court.
Lawyers have to eat and pay their bills just like anyone else, so expect to pay a fee if you involve a lawyer.
