Finding A Seasoned Lawyer Whatever your legal needs are you will find that there are many lawyers in your area that advertise that they concentrate on your sort of case. This may make the entire process of finding one with a lot of experience somewhat of a challenge. However, if you follow the following it will be possible to define your quest to the correct one out of very little time. The first step is to produce a list of the lawyers which are listed in your area specializing in your position. While you are making this list you should only include those which you have an effective vibe about according to their advertisement. You may then narrow this list down by using a while evaluating their internet site. There you should certainly find just how many years they have been practicing plus some general details about their success rates. At this stage your list should have shrunken further to people that you simply felt had professional websites as well as an appropriate amount of experience. You need to then spend some time to check out independent reviews of each and every attorney. Be sure you see the reviews instead of just depending on their overall rating. The information within the reviews will give you an idea of the way they interact with the clientele and how much time they invest into each case they are focusing on. Finally, you should meet with at the very least the past three lawyers which have the credentials you are interested in. This provides you with enough time to truly evaluate how interested these are in representing your case. It is actually imperative that you follow all of these steps to actually hire a company containing the proper measure of experience to get you the ideal outcome.

Can Anyone Think Of Good Reasons Why Adoption Laws...?
Can Anyone Think Of Good Reasons Why Adoption Laws Must Be Different In Every State Of The U.S.? Wouldn'T It Make More Sense To Have Federal Adoption Laws That Could Be Consistent?
Thank You For Your Thoughts On This Topic.
The federal government is (supposed to be) for the regulation of commerce and relationships among the states. Since adoptions take place within the states, there is no good (read: "constitutional") for the federal government being involved.
It is, then, a by-product of our federalist system. Like drinking ages, speed limits on highways, alcohol sales, marriage laws, and so many other state governed laws, having the federal government regulate this would be viewed as an encroachment on the sovereignty of states.
The federal government has tied tax dollars to following federal guidelines (ala drinking age, for instance, and speed limits), and in that way has managed to make some things more uniform. But I strongly suspect there is little interest in tying tax dollars to a uniform adoption system.
I do think consistency would be really good in this area. But it's hard to see how we might make that work in a federal system.
Emotional Struggle With Legal Questions. . .?
Me And My Current Boyfriend Have Been Together For A Really Long Time. We Broke Up For A Couple Of Weeks And I Truly Thought We Weren'T Ever Going To Get Back Together. I Made The Biggest Mistake Of My Life And Had Sex With Another Guy. He Used A Condom The First Time And The Second Time He Pulled Out. I Was Really Really Wet (I Couldn'T Think Of A Polite Word.) And So It Worries Me That I Might Have Been Ovulating? A Very Short Time After That, Me And My Current Boyfriend Got Back Together. I Had No Symptoms Of Pregnancy Or Anything Before We Got Back Together. My Boyfriend And I Decided We Wanted A Child After Working Out Our Differences And Having A Long Talk. We Then Tried For Many Days To Conceive (About A Week Or A Little Over A Week Before My Period Was Due.) I Took A Pregnancy Test And It Came Out Positive. Could It Be The Other Guy'S? And Yes, My Boyfriend Does Know About All This And He Is There For Me. We Are Together And Will Be Unless The Baby Is Not His. Do You Guys Think I Have Anything To Worry About?
If It Is The Other Guy'S;
-What Last Name Do I Give The Baby? (I Don'T Want To Use My Last Name Because I Recently Found Out That My Dad Isn'T My Real Father And I Don'T Want To Keep Passing On That Name, I Feel Awkward Enough Using It Myself)
-Can I Give The Baby The Other Guy'S Last Name Without His Permission?
-Do I Put Him On The Birth Certificate? (There Is No Possibility Of Anyone Else.)
-If I Do Will He Need To Sign It?
-My Boyfriend Decided To Tell All His Friends And Family Anyway So I'M Guessing They Will Be At The Hospital, How Will I Deal With This If The Baby Isn'T His?
-Any Other Advice?
I Feel Terrible About The Mistake I Made, And I Assure You, He Has Made His Fair Share Too. I Don'T Want To Be Judged, It'S Not Like I Cheated On Him. And No, I'M Not Going To Be Ghetto And Go On Maury. I'M Going Through A Really Tough And Emotional Time Right Now, So Please No Harsh Comments. (I'M 17 Weeks And 2 Days Pregnant.)
The Other Guy Doesn'T Really Want To Be A Father But Says If It Is His, He Will Do What He Has To Do.
My Last Period Was July 3Rd. Me And The Other Guy Had Sex About A Week To A Week And A Half After That. My Current Boyfriend And I Had Sex A Few Days After That With No Protection, Trying To Conceive.
Also My Edd Is April 11Th.
My Current Boyfriend Does Not Want To Raise This Child As His Own If Its Not His, And I Don'T Blame Him. So That'S Out Of The Question.
Yes This Is A Repost, Hopefully More Answers. :(
Due date April 11th suggests conception date July 18th or so.
Period July 3rd, suggests ovulation (if 28-day periods and regular) of about July 17th or 18th. Pretty good agreement.
However, a "week and a half after" and "a few days after that" there's no telling who's the daddy until the baby is tested. It seems that your bf is more likely, but time will tell.
it's a simple test - they swab your mouth, the baby's mouth, and one or more fathers' mouths; send the swabs away, and for a few hundred bucks they'll tell you with 1 in 10 million accuracy who's your daddy. Note that unless the swabs are done by a licensed medical tech who checks everyone's ID, the results are not admissible in court. However, given the answer, unless they think you pulled a fast one on him, who's going to demand a legal test too?
I'm pretty sure you can put whatever name you want on the birth certificate. Most single mothers find it more convenient to use their own last name. It avoids a bit of confusion at schools etc. It's not like he has a copyright to the name "Smith" or whatever if you decide to use that. If you want to, use your mother's last name and eventually change yours legally too.
Not sure how long you can wait to finalize the birth certificate, since a DNA test can take a week or so. BTW, if you can find the blood type of the two daddys and your own, the hosital might be able to give you a rough guess almost immediately if the baby's blood type can rule out one daddy. There's a 50-50 chance it can, unless they have the same blood type.
Worst case, you give the bf's information then ask to change the results and/or do legal name changes when the tests come back. For that, I don't know.
You can put him on the birth certificate or not, I suppose. You can do what you want. He doesn't have to be anywhere near the hospital, or even in the country... What difference does it make? One way or another, he'll know. Your child will probably want to know. If you go after him for support, or he wants the child to know their father, does it really matter what's on the certificate? The court will determine who's the real daddy legally, and what happens in terms of support and visitation if you don't come to a friendly agreement.
If the bf told his family, and didn't tell them the big "But...", that's his problem to deal with. After all, unless the kid comes out the wrong color, what difference does it make? Who will know until the tests come back? For a week or two everyone will think there's a new addition to the family. By then, you probably won't see any of them again anyway and the bf will ahve filled them in with the news.
I found the following link - you have 45 days to amend a birth record in Minnesota, for example. your state may be different.
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.
Define Trust, Please?
Please Give Me Your Definition Of &Quot;Trust&Quot; As It Pertains To Your Partner/Spouse/Lover?
Trust is earned and gained, not given. Trust is being able to rely on and believe in that one person who is supposed to be your partner, that they will love and support you, be faithful and honest no matter what. Trust is believing that the other will have faith in you even if you tell them something that will break their heart (because after all we want honesty) and hoping that they will understand and trust you again in time. I've heard it said that trust is giving that one person the ability to break your heart but trusting them not to. I've also heard that the proof of love is trust. My hubby and I built our trust between each other as friends first for 10 years. =) Trust is huge in a healthy relationship.
Can You Start Probate Court Without Death Certificates?
My Mother In Law Passed Away Suddenly In January. We Live In Arizona. I Was Wondering, Can You Go Start The Proceedings With Probate Court Without The Death Certificates. We Haven'T Received Them Yet And I Was Hoping Someone Could Give Me An Answer On What We Can Do. My Mother In Law Left The House, Verbally, To My Husband. No One Else In The Family Wants It And Isn'T Going To Fight For It. She Did Not Leave A Will. She Had The Papers But Unfortunately Did Get To Finish Them. Any Ideas Or Any Referrals To A Good Lawyer To Ask?
You'll need a death certificate among other things. If your mother-in-law left no Last Will then her assets will be distributed according to statute but only after there is proof that all her lawful debts have been paid. If other legally entitled heirs do not wish to receive anything from your mother-in-law's estate, they will have to provide the Probate Court with written declination. Your local probate court will have information on the local procedure. Call them. Generally you'll need to apply to be the administrator, obtain a bond, submit an inventory and value of all her assets including bank accounts or other property in her name, publish notice for creditors,and then wait for a statutory period to file an accounting with the court to close out the estate. Please bear in mind that Probate Courts serve two basic functions: 1. Protection of creditors and 2. Distribution of assets according to the Last Will or by statute. It would probably be a good idea for you to consult with an attorney to confirm what needs to be done.
