4 Strategies To Help Your Lawyer Allow You To If you want a lawyer for any reason, you must work closely along with them to be able to win your case. No matter how competent they may be, they're gonna need your help. Listed below are four important methods to help your legal team help you win: 1. Be Totally Honest And Up Your lawyers need and expect your complete cooperation - whatever information you're gonna reveal directly to them. Privilege means what you say is kept in confidence, so don't hold anything back. Your legal team has to know everything in advance - most importantly information other side could find out about and surprise you with later. 2. Provide Meticulous Records Keep a continuing and factual account of all information related to your case. Whether it's witnesses or payments being made, provide your attorneys with all the current data they have to assist them to win. 3. Appear Early For All Engagements Never be late when you're appearing before a court and avoid wasting the attorney's time, too, when you are by the due date, each and every time. Actually, because you might need to discuss eleventh hour details or perhaps be extra prepared for the way it is you're facing, it's a good idea to arrive early. 4. Demonstrate You Have Your Act Together If you've been responsible for just about any crime, it's important so that you can prove to a legal court that you both regret the actions and they are making strides toward enhancing your life. By way of example, if you're facing a DUI, volunteer to get a rehab program. Be sincere and linked to the cities the judge is presiding over. Working more closely together with your legal team increases your likelihood of absolute success. Try these tips, listen closely to how you're advised and ultimately, you need to win your case.

Can I Have 2 Legal Aid Lawyers At Once?
I Have A Legal Aid Lawyer For Criminal Charges, Now Im Just Wondering If I Can Get Another One For Family? Im Not Done With The Criminal Charges Yet, Just Wondering If I Can Have 2 At Once? Is It Possible? Thanks
You can have one for a criminal matter and another for a civil matter (like a divorce), if you like. The criminal matters are generally through the public defender's office or the judge will appoint a private attorney on the matter. In many cases, you can arrange for civil law representation either through the local legal services office or through the county bar association.
Need Legal Aid Advice On Child Support In Ny And Nj?
Please No Negative Comments Or Ideas.
Ok So Im 38 Weeks Pregnant Ready To Pop Any Minute Now And I Had A Few Questions Concerning Child Support And What Events Leading Up To The Court Date Might Affect My Ruling.
My Unborn Son Father Cheated On Me (I Dont Know For How Long) And I Found Out Yesterday The Night Of My Baby Shower. I Kicked Him Out 4Am After Finding A Video Of A Naked Girl On His Phone And Him With Having A Erection..(Sorry For Tmi)
But These Are The Questions I Would Like To Know If They Weigh In On My Child Support I Can Possibly Recieve From Him Ruled By A Judge.
I Have Been Currently Out Of Work Because Of Lay Offs On A Previous Job But Do Plan On Getting A New One After The Baby Is Born. But I Recieve Unemployment Benefits From My Old Job..Will This Affect My A Judge'S Decision?
He Currently Still Has A Job Making Roughly $22,000 To $25,000 A Year And Has No Other Children That I Know Of And Currently Is Still Living At Home With His Mother.
I Accidently Threw A Brick At His Car And Threw His Stuff Outside, And Blackberry Outside When I Kicked Him Out 4Am.
My Ex Lives In Nj And I Live In Ny And Wonder Would The Difference Of States Make Be A Issue Or Make Things More Complicated??
While I Was/Am Pregnant My Ex Has Not Been There, He'S Has Always Been Out And About On The Go And Constantly Make Up Excuses Because He Doesnt Wanna Make His Way Out Here--Because Its Too Far Or He'S Busy Doing Something Else That He Cant Get Out Of
He Has Only Been To 2 Of My Ultrasounds I Had While Being Pregnant Out Of Maybe 8.
What Is The Percentage Paid To The Parent Who Has Custody Over The Child From Who Doesnt?
And Last But Not Least I Do Not, I Repeat, I Do Not Want Him In The Delivery Room With Me..I Dont Think He Deserves That Privledge Because He Is The One Who Gambled Seeing His Child'S Entering In The World.
I Will Be Heading To The Courts Tomorrow And Will Be Seeking Full Custody Of My Unborn Son And Will Want The Expenses Of That Being Paid Of The Expenses Of Food, Clothes, Medical And Child Care By Him.
Thank You For Any Legal Aid Advice Offered..
Your wages has NOTHING to do with child support.
The federal guidelines is at least 17% of the gross wages that the father (or mother) needs to pay.
The only thing that can legally allow non-payment is if you allow some one to adopt the child, This also means when you get married, your then husband would need to adopt the child for the father to legally stop paying child support.
If when the father is collecting unemployment or welfare, 17% of it must still be paid as child support.
Free Legal Consultation? Please Help. What Happened?
There Is A Lawyer Around Here That Gives Free Legal Consultations. I Have Gotten Two Via Email Or On The Phone With Him In Past Times. He Doesn'T Keep Track, He Really Doesn'T. This Time I Had A Problem That To Me Was &Quot;So Big&Quot; I Contacted Him And Said I Felt It Was Necessary For Me To Come In And Speak To Him About It. We Talked For A Full Hour, He Poured Over Documents I Brought Along And Then At The End He Told Me The Charge Was $150 And I Could Pay It When I Was Able. Is That Right? Is That Ethical? I Thought I Was &Quot;Going In&Quot; For A Free Consultation!!!!!!!!!!! His Ad Says &Quot;Free Consultations&Quot; Too On His Website. Should I Say Something?
You got far more than consultation. Pay up!
Consultations merely consist of telling you the problems you will face and whether an attorney should be retained and or consulted further. This attorney went over the documents you presented. As a matter of courtesy his secretary should have told you about the fee. However, $150.00 is rather reasonable.
He believes he provided valuable services; My secretary always tells people what the charges for consultations are, so it was wrong not to say anything to you and if you did not sign any papers send him an e-mail saying you were under the impression that the "consultation" was free, that will be end of it or you can offer to pay $75 instead because you were not told about the fees.
The idea of consultation is to have the potential client retain you if it is a problem that warrants a lawyer, that is why lawyers say consultation is free.
Regarding Georgia Divorce Laws....?
I Was Just Served Divorce Papers By My Husband Feb 29Th, 2016. We Have Not Been Intimate Since November 25Th 2015. Our Court Date Is Set For April 18Th For The Initial Hearing. We Still Live In The Same Home But In Separate Rooms. We Also Have Three Children Together. Today He Was Home And Kissed Me In Front Of The &Quot;Security&Quot; Cameras He Has Set Up In The House. Hes Been A Jerk For Quite A While And Today He Was Especially Nice, Kissing Me Multiple Times In Front Of The Cameras. I Was Stupid And Kissed Back, Although It Didnt Get Any Further Than That. What Is He Trying To Do? How Could This Go Against Me In The Divorce? Truth Is Ill Always Love Him But I Dont Want To Be With Him Anymore. Our Marriage Has Lacked Respect And Trust For Quite Some Time Now. I Just Want To Move Forward And Dont Want To Prolong This Whole Ordeal. I Feel So Stupid....Especially Because Im Getting Help With Paying For The Lawyer...
A lot of men are paranoid about being falsely accused of being abusive and the security cameras help keep both of you honest (At the sacrifice of your personal privacy). You can kiss during the divorce and it will not have much of a legal effect on anything. It does have a significant psychological effect since you might be more likely to seek an amicable agreement rather than fight it out in court, which is not necessarily a bad thing.
How fast the divorce will proceed will mostly depend on how much you both can agree on and the local courthouse's schedule.
I Need Good Legal Advice On Divorce As Well As Alimony And Custody?
I Have Been Married To My Wife For Almost 3Yrs Now In The State Of Sc. We Have One Son, 18 Months. I Feel So Bad For Him. Its Not Working Out With Us, We Are Truley Not Meant To Be. When I Married Her She And I Were Both In The Military, I Still Am. She Got Out On Her Own Will, And Wants A Divorce. Now Shes Talking Alimony. I Think Its Wrong, B/C She Is More Than Capable Of Getting A Job. If Shes Asking For Alimony Its B/C Shes Going To Have Trouble Making Ends Meet.I Dont Think You Should Ask For Alimony Just B/C You Know You Wont Be Making As Much Money As You Want. In This Case Would It Also Be Fair To Fight For Full Custody Of My Son. If Anyone Can Give Me Advice On How To Avoid Alimony, And If It Would Be In My Favor To Go For Full Costody Please Help.
If you are still in the military, there is no way you are going to get full custody of your child, especially since your motive is only because you don't want to pay alimony. And if she has been your child's primary caregiver, unless you can prove that she is a crack-addicted prostitute, your chances of gaining full custody are zero. And do you really want to take your child away from the person who has been raising him (while you have been working) just to spite your wife because she is asking for alimony? What kind of a man does that make you out to be? Does this make you proud? Or is it just that you aren't thinking clearly because you are in shock about the divorce (I am giving you the benefit of the doubt)?
Honestly, you need to get something in your head...although your wife can ask for the moon and you can ask for something equally silly, you or your wife can only get what the courts are willing to give either of you and what the law provides for. It doesn't matter what YOU think or want her to have...or even what she wants...unless you two come to a private agreement. Once this goes before a judge, it is up to the lawyers and the judge...not you and not her. Hopefully, they will act in the best interest of your child.
Further, in your wife's case, since the marriage was of such a short duration, alimony will be limited (child support though won't). If she hasn't been working but taking care of your child, she will probably be awarded some alimony...possibly for a few years...and if it is so awarded, you must pay...or else. And by the way, if she doesn't get alimony and has to go back to work right away, your child will have to go to day care? Is that in your child's best interest or are you thinking about your pocketbook? How will you feel in say 16 years when your child asks why they couldn't stay home with mommy but had to go to daycare?
To sum up...you need competent legal advice to help you through the divorce/custody battle. But remember this, try and do what is best for your child, not yourself. I know you don't want your ex to have a dime because you are probably angry with her...but that money is to help raise your son. Every dime you manage to squeeze from your ex and keep in your pocket is a dime not spent on your child. And if your wife is working full time, she won't be home taking care of your child and raising them personally. Instead, your ex will be working during the day and coming home exhausted to take care of your son...and then how is your child going to get the care that he needs? (I have no problem with her going back to work when he starts school but now...he needs his mother.
Anyway...I think you should get a good lawyer...one who is fair...and follow his advice...as right now, I don't think you are "thinking clearly". And try not to be so bitter that you end up hurting your son. Good luck and God bless!
