What Is The Difference Between Attorney-At-Law, And Esquire?
An "Attorney-at-law" is simply one who is authorized to practice law. "Esquire" has no legal significance. It derives from the British peerage system indicating one bearing the rank above a "gentlemen" but below a Knight. In modern usage, is means a lawyer, but there is no law of peerage in the U.S. and all citizens are equal in the eyes of the law and so the claim of a title or rank is meaningless.
Why Would A Lawyer Present Litigation To A Judge During Sentencing?
My Daughter Was Found Guilty For A Class X Felony. Her Sentecing Was Postponed 3 Times. Her Lawyer Is Slow,,,He'S Going To Present Litagation To The Judge At The Sentencing And Also Have Family Speak At The Sentencing . Help! What'S Going On? She Was Interviewed By The Probation Department. I'M Just So Confused.
Your daughter's lawyer is going to present mitigation at her sentencing hearing. Basically, mitigation consists of family history, life history, etc. The lawyer is trying to present evidence to give the judge a full picture of your daughter and her life so that he can make an informed sentencing decision. My guess is he's trying to get the judge to grant probation instead of sentencing your daughter to serve time or, at the very least, is trying to get a reduced sentence.
California Lawyers, Any Low Cost Or Free For Non Income Mothers Wanting To Leave State?
I Live In San Diego County And Was Wondering About Legal Advice. My Soon To Be Ex Husband Is A Marine. He Filed In August And Wanted Joint Custody, Neither Of Us Having Representation. He Then Deployed In November So I Am Guessing The Divorce Is On Hold Until He Returns. I Am Wondering Since He Is A Marine, Has Been Deployed 4 Times And Will Be Re Enlisting And Requesting The East Coast For Duty, If The Courts Will Grant Me Full Custody And Allow Me To Move To Florida To Be With Family. I Am A Full Time Student, Never Worked During The Marriage And Was The Primary Caretaker For Our Son Due To Deployments, Training Etc..A Military Job Is Very Unstable. So, I Am Wondering If The Court Will Look At Those Factors And Favor In My Behalf, Or Will I Have To Gain Representation And Get Permission? If So, Are There Any Family Lawyers Who Could Represent Me At Low Cost So I Can Present My Case To A Judge And Be Granted Permission? Thanks For Any Advice. Ps- The Father Already Asked If I Was Planning To Move To Florida So He Could Re Enlist For North Carolina Where He Will Have Lots Of Training.. But He Thinks I Will Be Here Until Dec 2012 When I Am Wanting/Needing To Move This Summer.
You cannot do anything until your husband returns from deployment.
You cannot go in to court and engage in what is essentially an ex parte request behind your husband's back when he is not available to fight for custody. You cannot move under these conditions unless you get written permission from your husband.
If you have never worked during the marriage then you lack the ability to support your child or yourself. It is unlikely a court will grant you sole custody. You say that your husband's job is "very unstable" but this is not true. His job is VERY stable. He has steady income, housing and medical. And he has obviously been the sole source of support for you and the child. No judge could or should discount this. And no judge could or should hold military service against the father.
Sorry, but you are going to need until he returns from deployment to make your request to relocate to the court. And frankly, you will be MUCH better off negotiating the terms with him so you can both agree.
Anyone Know About Contract Lawyers?
Hi! Everyone, I Am Interested In Becoming A Contract Lawyer..
The One Who Deals With Written Contracts But I'M Not Sure On How To Get There After High School? My Plan Was To Become A Nurse After High School But Nursing School Are Very Competitive These Days So I Wanted To Become A Contract Lawyer As A Safety Net?
Does Anyone Know How To Become A Contract Lawyer ?(I'M Still In Highschool But Im Going To Junior College Part-Time Right Now During My Senior Year)
Another Question Is Are There Any School (That Offer The Contract Lawyer Program) In California?
*Thanks For Answering My Questions... All Answers Mean Something To Me Short Or Long
As AJ said, contract lawyers are lawyers who work on a per case basis for other attorneys. You want to be a transactional attorney.
You will have to go to law school. In order to get into an ABA approved law school (where tuition is so high that you get $100,000 in debt after graduating), you will need to graduate with a bachelor's degree and get a respectable GPA.
Here is a list of ABA law schools in CA:
Law school takes 3 years (4 if you go part time) AFTER getting your bachelor's degree.
So, you would be better off going to nursing school, where you can get a bachelor's degree in nursing and be a RN or LVN. There is a shortage of nurses in CA, but not a shortage of attorneys....
Family Court Child Support Question?
The Child Support Have Found The Other Party In The Case But Now They Are Talking About A Court Case But Don'T Have The Docket Number Or Anything But Have Given Me Which Court House To Contact, By Now Have They Sent A Letter To The Other Persons House Telling Them They Have A Court Date? And How Can I Find More About My Case If I Have No Docket Number Provided?
The clerk of the court in every courthouse in the United States has a docket index.
The index has the names of the parties listed. The cross-reference of the parties will show the docket number.
You have the court file pulled and review the pleadings and papers in it. There should be either a motion or order, or something directed to the responding party. It would have a court date and time.
In many states there is a "return day", for instance in California they list the date and time in the upper right hand corner of the first page of a court paper, showing when the hearing will be on the motion or order or order to show cause or whatever it is. The same is true for some courts in New York State and elsewhere.
Other states there's a separate notice of hearing or notice of trial.
In most cases there will be a certificate of service or a return of service showing that the party has been served.
In order to find this, you go to the clerk's office and ask them to look up the party by name and get the docket number and pull the file. Or they will tell you how to look up the party by name, get the docket number and then they pull the file with that information.
Hope this helps since we really don't know where the courthouse is and you didn't tell us.
Can I Fill Out My Own Divorce Decree Papers?
I Found My State Divorce Decree Forms (Entire Packet) Online For Free. Ok Great But I'M Not Sure If I'M Filling It Out Right. I Mean Its Pretty Self Explanitory But I Do Have A Few Questions. Can I Hand Write This Or Does It Have To Be Typed? Do I Fill Out The Final Decree Papers Or Everything But That And They Will Do It At The Court? Do I Just Take This To The Circuit Court And Say I Want To Turn This In And Pay A Fee? Please Help I'Ve Tried Everything Else And No Answers! Thanks Everyone!!
What state are you in?? The degrees and difficulties often involved with self filings vary widely from state to state. Also, I highly advise against you doing a self filing for many reasons. If you miss something even if it is through no fault of your own it can invalidate your entire decree. Not to mention that if your ex decides to behave like a ninny, it is a lot more difficult to stop if you do not have legal counsel. For your own sake, financial as well as emotional, I would advise you NOT to proceed without legal counsel. That having been said, in most states, divorces are handled in family court. You can easily find out where and how to file as well as the fees involved by calling the family court of the county you reside in and asking them the how to's. Alas, it is almost never as simple as turning it in and paying a fee. It always has to be final approved by a judge. Usually the process takes a minimum of 60-90 days and that is if it is totally uncontested. If you have children involved and have custody and alimony arrangements,...needless to say can get quite involved and expensive. I have been twice divorced and both times my hide was saved by a thorough and knowledgeable attorney. I beg of you not to proceed without at least consulting one. Most initial consultations are free anyway.
