My Dad Wants To File For A Divorce. Is There Any Way To Get Legal Aid So It Won'T Be So Hard On Us?
My Mom Is Having An Affair With A Man That Is Quite Frankly Trash. I Don'T Want My Siblings To Be Around People Like That. I Don'T Know Who He Is And I'M Sure She Doesn'T Know Him Like She Thinks She Does. When We Try To Tell Her What Type Of Person He Is, She Defends Him! This Man Was At One Point A Meth Addict. He Is Recovered So She Says And Holds A Job So There Is Probably Some Truth To That. We Know He Does Pills And She Even Defends Him For That. For Now She Is Staying With Her Mom But What Is Stopping Her From Taking My Siblings To His Place? And With The Way Our Grandmother Is, It'S Not An Enviroment I Want Them Growing Up In. I Don'T Want Them Believing Anything My Mom Or Grandmom Does As Ok. Futhermore, This Is There Home. As Much Stress As They'Re Going Through, They Shouldn'T Have To Switch Schools Or Start Over Again. We Are Working Hard On Paying Bills By Ourselves And It'S Been Fine So Far. Everything Is Pretty Stable And It Should Stay That Way For Them. Is There Any Way To Get Financial Assistance Or Aid So It Is Not So Hard On Us? And How Does It Look For Us On Getting The Kids? There Are No Other Real Assets Except For Children. Any Help Is Welcome! And Thank You In Advance.
Your father is going to need more help than legal aid can provide because if your mom is living a lifestyle that you describe, he should be getting custody of your family and she should not get a red cent. If anything he needs to make sure visits are supervised because if I were your father, I would be concerned about the boyfriend being alone with a couple of drug addicts. as long as your dad is doing these things, your life will actually be better. I wish you and your family well and my prayers are with you all.

What Is The Statute Of Limitations In A Wrongful Death Lawsuit In Illinois?
The Doctor In Question Was Working In The Er At The Local Public Hospital. So The Suit Would Probably Be Against The Hospital Since He Is A Hospital Resident. What Is The Statute Of Limitations? Is It Different For A Doctor And Hospital? I Know Laws Vary From State To State. I Live In Illinois.
The suit would be brought against the doctor personally and also the hospital if he was EMPLOYED by the hospital and not contracted by the hospital.
A wrongful death action must be filed within two years of the date of death.

Should You Be Wary Of Law Firms/Lawyers Who Send You Mail Immediaely After You Receive A Traffic Ticket,Etc?
I'Ve Heard That These Are Called Bottom Feeders, Or Are Just Sharks, And Are Desperate For Business Or Just...The Types Of Law Firms/Lawyers You Should Try Your Best To Stay As Far Away From As Possible.
Is This True..Or Just Speculation?
Or Is This Just Standard Business Practise?
What is happening here is that the lawyer is either himself, or someone he has hired is going through police reports and contacting people who might need a lawyer. It's pretty standard and the reports are public information. There are a lot of desperate lawyers out there so this isn't too surprising. Traffic accidents tend to be the main thing they want. Keep in mind that despite what they say they can get for you, it may actually cost you money.
You're in an accident that's not your fault, the other party's insurance company offers you $8,000 for the damages. You contact a lawyer who will work on a 30% (and this number will vary) contingency. He forces the insurance company to pay $10,000 instead. After his fee, you collect $7000, your lawyer meanwhile walks away with $3000 for basically threatening legal action and most likely not much more. And if you'll notice $1000 of his fee is money you'd have in your pocket if you'd never contacted him. So before getting involved in something like this make sure it's in your best interest.
The same thing goes for traffic tickets. In this scenario, you pay the lawyer a fee and he gets the ticket reduced to a non moving violation which you pay the fine plus his fee. This could be a good deal if you had some serious traffic charges against you that might result in have your license revoked or higher insurance rates. It is possible to do this yourself, you can contact the prosecuter and agree to paying a fine while pleading to a non moving violation. This can be very intimidating for some people and if the stakes were high enough, hiring a lawyer to help you through it might be a good investment. Like every question asked here, a lot of it would depend on the specific situation.
Good luck and hope this was of some help to you.
Does A Business Need A Lawyer In Small Claims Court?
I'M Wondering If It'S Required That All Business Have A Lawyer In Small Claims Court.
I Was Told This, But I Just Want To Make Sure. The Entire Reason I Plan On Filing A Suit In Small Claims Is Because Of This - It Is (Of Course) A Long Story As To What I'M Suing For, But Basically - I'M Suing A Medical Office Over A Bill, And The Only Reason I'M Doing It Is Because I Know It Will Be Much Cheaper For Them To Just Refund My Damn Money Than Pay Their Lawyers.
I'M In Florida (Duval County), But I Was Told This Was The Case Nationwide (Which Is Why I'M Slightly Skeptical, I Thought The Small Claims Courts, Like All Courts, Have A Good Number Of Variations In Their Procedures & Requirements).
Call the local Court Clerk and ask.
Can you file as individual (assuming you are the patient who owes the medical office) to side step any laws pertaining to business owners?
Edit @garrytoo - lawyers are permitted just not required in small claims court. I was sued by a landlord for "damages" to my apartment after I moved. Since I left the apartment in better shape then when I moved in I was stunned so a lawyer-friend for advise. She suggested I file a small claim suit after my landlord for failing to return my deposit. That served to require the landlord to face me in court without me accruing legal expenses. Luckily, I had before and after photos of the apartment because the apartment had horrible stained carpet and a friend whose husband owned a small business selling carpet remnants. He sold me a cheap carpet remnant that was just taking up space at his shop and friends helped him install it in the apartment before I moved in. The landlord owned dozens of building so there wasn't around. I took the photos because I was actually worried about "improving' the apartment.
The landlord tried to get me to drop the case by getting it continued over and over but it started to become a matter of principle. I wondered how many other people didn't get their deposit back and since I worked near the court house and had a flexible schedule, I just showed up every time.
When the case was finally heard, the landlord wasn't there, he was represented by an attorney and not a very compete one! He arrived not even knowing what the case was about so the judge asked me to start. I was super nervous but I followed the advice given to me at the information booth - be simple and direct. I stated the facts of the case and that I had before and after photos of the apartment. The judge took one look at the photos and told the lawyer he would set a court date unless I had received a refund of my deposit within 14 days! A small victory for the little guy.
Personal Injury Question?
I Was Involved In A Personal Injury Due To A Beauty Salon. My Hair Ended Up Coming Out At The Crown And Now The Beauty Shop Is Claiming Damages Through The Insurance Company. The Company Has Offered To Pay All Medical Bills And Liability(Settlement For Damages). But First What Should I Ask For. My Scalp Has Scar Tissue And Hair Regrowth In Some Areas Seems Dim According To What The Doctors Have Told Me. What Is A Reasonable Amount To Ask For Pain And Suffering? I Have To Live With The Fact That My Hair May Never Grow Back And I Am Still At The Tender Age Of 28 Years Old.
Get a lawyer and don't sign anything until then (don't even cash the check). If the damage is permanent, you may be entitled to much more than medical bills, but if you cash the check, you'll be stuck with whatever they give you.
As for reasonable amount, depends on where you live. Texas juries are crazy, so you might get like $100,000. Other places, maybe $10,000 to $50,000.
Again, get a lawyer and don't sign anything until you do.
