My Bankruptcy Lawyer Made Numerous Mistakes & Now I Am Charged W/ Bankruptcy Fraud. Why Is She Not Held Respon?
My Bankruptcy Lawyer Made Numerous Mistakes & Now I Am Charged W/ Bankruptcy Fraud. Why Is She Not Held Responsible? She Put Me In A Ch. 7 Knowing I Had Assets. She Never Gave Me A Means Test Or Told Me I Had To Go To Counseling.
If you think you lawyer made mistakes causing you financial detriment, you should report her to the state bar association for attorney malpractice.
Winning isn't easy though, because the legal profession supports its own. To prevail, you must show the negligence caused by your attorney, and that the outcome would have been materially different but for that negligence.
The means test determines whether your income is sufficiently low enough to file for Chapter 7. You have stated that you have assets. Perhaps your assets are at a level where your attorney felt you exceeded the limits necessary to file for protections of Chapter 7.
****** EDIT ****** EDIT ******
Don't be naive enough to believe that the legal profession DOES NOT protect it's own. The perfect world of which remymort may live just does not exist. The state bar association is staffed primarily by attorneys, ex-attorneys, and/or by those with law degrees. Some of these staffers may have gone to law school with YOUR attorney or know her from attendance at court, seminars, or other events of which attorneys regularly attend such as CLE (Continuing Legal Education). Staffers at the State Bar may also empathize with your attorney because they too may have have a malpractice claim filed against them. You would be surprised at the number of attorney malpractice claims.
While I agree that the legal profession strives for fairness and justice for all, there are MANY examples where it falls far short of that noble objective.
My point is this: If you file an attorney malpractice suit, be sure to have your ducks in line because "you" have the burden of proof in showing your attorney's negligence.
Personal Injury Settlement Question?
I Have Been Dealing With An Injury Claim For Quite Some Time Now, And Both I And The Insurance Adjuster Are Very Close To A Settlement. He Stated That He Would Present My Final Offer To The Committee This Week. Can Anyone Tell What This Means And Whether Or Not The Adjuster Was Working With This Committee Throughout The Whole Process Of The Claims? We Have Been Back And Forth On Offers For The Last 4 Months
The amount of settlement is often not the adjuster's decision and, if the insurance company is using an independent adjuster, it is never the adjuster's decision. Many insurance companies have committees that review cases and approve or reject settlement figures. It's likely that the adjuster has been reporting to the committee or at least to a member of the committee since the beginning.
Why Should We Impliment Divorce Law?
Please Don'T Include Religious Terms Etc.
Cause it benefits the undeserving.
Divorce laws were made in ancient times to protect women..
Here was the deal.. Men were attracted to sex and women to money.
When married..so that men dont use and throw women.. They had divorce laws and marriage.
But then.. The part of deal for men was taken away where martial rape was made illegal.. Cause its her body.
But the men still had to pay half of their stuff in divorce (even though its His body and he earned it )
So now marriage is half the deal..and bad for men.
But what men did wad swap places with women..
They made it very clear that its not a mans job to provide.. So now in this time.. Even tough divorce laws looks stupid.
The spouse who earns more (even if its women) will suffer in divorce .
It engourages people to never marry.
Simple as that.. They want to destroy marriage..
As a great saying goes..
'If you want to destroy the country ,
Destroy the family . '
So feminism was created to destroy the family..
And now you see the rate of single mother rising and on a historical high.
Marriage rates in a historical low.
Divorce rate very high ..
Do I Need A Parenting Plan?
If Me And The Father Were Never Married, He'S Seven States Away, And He'S Only Seen His Now-One-Year-Old Child Once? He'S Fighting For Custody Because I Got Him For Child Support. He Was Hiding, But They Found Him.
You don't need a parenting plan. You need an order for custody. What do you mean, "fighting for custody"? Does he have a hearing date? It it in a court where you and the child live or 7 states away? If you and child have lived there for the last six months, this is the child's residence and the jurisdiction where all custody, support, etc matters are heard for as long as you live there.
Chances are the best he can do is joint custody with you keeping primary physical custody. No judge is going to rip a baby out of her mother's arms unless the child is endangered.
Recipt Check After Checkout - Legal? My Rights?
I Wanted To Find Out What My Rights Are As A Consumer When It Comes To The Recipt Checks That Go On At Locations Like 'Sams Club, Wal-Mar, Bestbuy, And Cosco' When I Exit The Store.
I Would Like To Know If I Have The Right To Refuse The Person That Will Not Let Me Exit Until They Check Off My Receipt. Is There Anything Thats Related To The Concept &Quot; That Upon Completing A 'Trade' The Items Traded Are Now Legally Owned By The Receiver Of Items Received In The Trade&Quot; And Does That Now Give Me Rights Similar To The Forth Amendment Where I Can Refuse A Search?
Interesting. This is a case where the rights of two people or entities overlap, and therefore a court would probably grant that some reasonable compromise is necessary. You have the right to carry on your business without unreasonable interuptions and intrusions on your person and property.
The store, by contrast, has the right to take reasonable precautions to insure the safety and security of their merchandise.
It is unlikely that any court would rule that the practice of asking customers to produce a receipt is an unreasonably invasive practice, and could conceivably rule that the receipt check is part of the entire check-out process. This is especially true in membership clubs like Sams, where you have to sign a membership agreement. Furthermore, the store has the right (depending on the state) to detain people it has probable cause to believe may be attempting to committ theft. Refusing to show your receipt would raise the suspicion that you may be attempting to committ theft, and they might be within their rights to hold you until the situation can be sorted out ("sirbobby's" claim that they cannot hold you is premised on the idea that they could not sucessfully prosecute you for attempted larceny. That much is obvious, but beside the point).
In reality, it is likely that they would not attempt to physically stop you from leaving, with the associated legal liabilities.
However, regardless of what your rights in this case may or may nor be, you must remember that trade is inherantly a voluntary process by law. You can choose not to shop at a given merchant, and by the same token, that merchant can refuse to sell their wares to you. A store may not, of course, discriminate against you on the basis of your race, religion, sex, etc, but outside of that they are perfectly free to say, "We would rather that you do not return to this store."
Therefore, even if we do assume that you have the perfect right not to show your receipt, the store also has the perfect right not to sell to you. Therefore, if you didn't show your receipt, there is not much they can do about it, but the most likely result is that they would politely ask you not to return to their store. The store *is* private property, and yes, they can do that. Furthermore, if they have asked you to stay off of their private property, they can even call the police and have you thrown out if you come back.
All in all, the question of whether you have the right not to show the receipt is a moot point, since the store has an equally valid right not to sell to you in the future.
