Free Legal Aid In Dfw Area For Criminal Case Outside Of Texas? Does Anyone Know Why I Can Look For This Help?
For Probation Violation. Please Help
Where legal aid services are concerned, it can actually cover a wide variety of categories. In short, legal aid services are alike to free counseling and representation in court. To be able to find a firm, which is capable of providing all forms of legal aid services, will be easier said than done due to the enormity of such services. In most situations, firms and lawyers will most likely only specialize either on a single or a certain group of categories of legal service. This is a very important fact to bear in mind. One would not want to waste time and money on a lawyer who is not specializing in the particular field of legal service one would like to engage in.

Can Any1 Briefly Explain This Sentence And Its Purpose?
Does Private Litigation Serve Any Useful Purpose In The Field Of Environmental Law? Or Should A System Of No-Fault Insurance Be Instituted And Environmental Control Be Left Entirely To Government?
I don't believe the first responder really got the gist of this in it's entirety. Private litigation is when private citizens (like you or I) sue each other, as opposed to public (governmental) litigation and commercial (businesses) litigation. So, pretend you and I are neighbors, and I drive a hummer and you drive a prius. Obv my car is contributing to pollution and such....and possibly global warming, etc. Would there be any useful purposes for you to take me, a private citzen, to court, and sue me for damaging the environment?? Or should we leave it to governmental bodies who will say that private citizens are NOT at fault for any environmental damage, but instead laws, rules and regulations must be put into place going forward, to ensure that we stop the bad we are doing now and instill preventitive measures?
My response would be no, there is no use for private litigation. Because after all, we ALL have done things, used products, etc. that have contributed to environmental harm. So first of all, we are all guilty; it would be hypocritical for one private citizen to sue another. Like Jesus said in the bible (just using this as an example!) when the townspeople wanted to stone the adultress, "Let he who is sinless cast the first stone". And no one could stone the woman because THEY were all guilty of "crimes" also. Secondly, the cause of environmental damage was widely unknown until recently, so the individual cannot be blamed for the products, services, and lifestyle habits that he/she has acquired during the time when he/she thought it was safe. But now that we have this information, it is up to the government to instill laws, rules and regulations to prevent further damage, to educate the people, and to change our ways. So the governement, for example, is changing the car emissions laws,etc. Thirdly, if my hummer is damaging the environment, it's not just hurting my neighbor, but the whole world! So why should only my neighbor collect damages?? That money should go to a public organization that benefits the whole town/city/world in helping to "fix" the problem my car is contributing to.
Even 10, 20, 50 years into the future, the government should be the body who indicts private citizens for any violations, and the damages should go to public organizations that benefits the whole, not just one individual. Individuals should not be suing other individuals for any environmental law violations.

Lawyer To Get Child Support Or Through State Agency (Il)?
My Brother Is Screwing Over The Mother Of His Children. She Is A Nurse And Makes Okay Money But Not Enough To Provide For Them Without Support. She Is Currently Making Payments To A Lawyer, But I Wonder If It Wouldn'T Be Cheaper For Her To Go Through Il State Agency And Fill Out The Apps Through Them. Is There A Benefit To Going Through A Lawyer - Can He/She Maybe Get A Larger Child Support Amount? I Really Want To Help Her Out, As She Is Going To Lose Her House Without The Money.
"Lawyer to get child support or through state agency (IL)? My brother is screwing over the mother of his children. She is a nurse and makes okay money but not enough to provide for them without support. She is currently making payments to a lawyer, but I wonder if it wouldn't be cheaper for her to go through IL state agency and fill out the apps through them. Is there a benefit to going through a lawyer - can he/she maybe get a larger child support amount? I really want to help her out, as she is going to lose her house without the money."
There is no quick answer to your question-- but if you don't want to read the details I provide below, I'd go with the Child Support Enforcement division of your local State's Attorney.
The amount of child support a non-custodial parent pays in Illinois is decided by one of two methods under 750 ILCS 5/505. The first-- and most common -- is a statutory minimum percentage of a net income of the non-custodial parent. Basically, for one child a non-custodial parent pays 20% of a net income (for two it's 28%, etc.)-- which is gross pay (of all income from all sources) minus the following: federal and state income taxes, FICA, prior support obligations, certain medical insurance premiums, union dues, and other less common required retirement account payments and expenditures for debt payments incurred for a business or means to make an income or for the custodial parent or the child(ren).
This calculation is pretty much straight math and will be used unless there are other circumstances that would make that amount of child support inappropriate (See 750 ILCS 5/505(a)(2))-- too little or too much. Usually, the statutory minimum is used.
If the non-custodial parent has a simple situation-- a wage laborer with a simple pay stub and none of those unusual expenses, then a monkey dressed in a crooked tie could go to court and get you the statutory minimum of support. Again, it's straight math. That's why letting the Child Support Enforcement folks handle it will probably be more cost effective than hiring an attorney.
If the situation is more complicated, the attorneys working for the Child Support Enforcement division might not work through the complexities and get as much support as could be had.
However, my experience with some general and family law practices in Illinois is that you'll pay an attorney far too much to make it worth it unless you're talking over a $3,000 yearly difference-- and you'll likely have a lot of headaches along the way with the attorney. (Expect to pay anywhere from $1,500 to $4,000 to settle the support issue.)
And I've watched attorneys agree to child support amounts that were below the statutory minimum-- because the attorneys didn't subpoena actual pay records, because the attorney didn't do the math and instead accepted the other side's calculations, and because the attorney had no idea about the actual facts in the case. While you might get lucky and find a good attorney who works quickly, you might not. At least with the Child Support Enforcement division, you aren't paying for shoddy services.

How Much Do You Think A Legal Assistant/Paralegal/Office Manager Should Be Making On A One Attorney Law Firm? Experience Of 7 Years.?
Working in a oneman firm is the long slow death by ducks. You work all the over time, all the jobs, you never can count on a day off or a vacation. I would want to know what he billed last 3 years and then I would ask for about 20%.
Traveling To Bermuda With A Felony Charge?
This Is Actually For A Relative Of Mine. He Was Curious If You Are Able To Travel To Bermuda With A Felony Charge, He Is On Probation But He Is Only Planning A Trip. Please Only Respond If You'Ve Had Experience With This Situation. We Are Working On Calling Multiple Places Right Now, But Would Like To Know Others Experiences With This Situation. I Know You Can Be Denied Into Canada For Felonies, But I Was Not Sure If Bermuda Had The Same Policies Over Immigration And Border Control. Please Let Me Know, That Would Be Really Great. I Look Forward To Hearing All Your Great Answers.
Also Kind Of Question Just For Me And Anybody Else Searching These Questions!
Are You Allowed To Enter Bermuda With A Old Warrant For Your Arrest, Around 5 Years Old?
We do not use the term "felony change" here in Canada, we refer to those types of offenses as "indictable offenses", therefore I assume you are writing from the US. I was employed in the legal field here in Canada for forty years. You did not specify whether your friend intended to travel by air or by cruise ship. The question about the old warrant is a slightly different legal conundrum. I will attempt to answer both matters together. If a person is taking an aircraft from mainland USA to Bermuda, the pre-screening process at the airport verifies each passenger's status with regard to legal matters/criminal records etc. All names are processed through police computers to determine whether or not if the airline will allow "Mr. X", or, any undesirable passengers will be boarding.
I can assure you that both the felony conviction and the very recent (not "old") warrant from a mere five years ago will both surface...meaning...the airport security will know in advance about both criminal convictions (you did not specify whether or not the "old warrant" was as a result of a minor criminal charge or a small claims court warrant for deliberately failing to attend court on a court date that the person was personally served and yet chose to ignore etc.) no matter what generated the warrant, the airport security staff will view it as "a criminal matter" even though it may have only been a minor criminal offense such as shop lifting at 17 years of age or causing a disturbance 5 years ago etc. Each of the two matters will perk their interest. The question really boils down to; will they allow your friend to board for a short trip to Bermuda (in spite of the criminal record) or not? I cannot answer that. If airport security could verify that the person is definitely only going on a four-day trip and is likely to return to the US then may allow the person to fly (but they will "flag his name") and will most likely monitor him more closely by, as an example, conducting a more detailed baggage search/interview upon his return. They do have some discretion however. Cruise line security is similar. All cruise ship passengers must register in advance and the list of passengers is referred to legally as "the manifest". Again, every name is run through police computers before embarkation and in the case of a "loop cruises" where you depart from New York, head straight to Bermuda and sail right back to New York 7 days later, they may use their discretion to allow a person with a felony conviction to board and may also allow the person with the "alive-and-well" recent outstanding warrant to board a looped cruise or, in the alternative, the person with the outstanding may be arrested at the port of New York and they will then be sent back, in custody, to the jurisdiction which issued the warrant or, the authorities may use some discretion and allow/permit the person to board
the cruise ship and make the arrest after the person disembarks back in New York 7 days later by flagging his/her name.
