After Dragging A Divorce Out For 3 Years, Can She Drop Her Lawyer And Go To Legal Aid?
Will Legal Aid Take On A Case Just Because She Doesn'T Want To Or Have The Money To Pay Her Lawyer Anymore? We Recently Found Out That Documents Were Falsified So Her, And Possibly Her Lawyer, Will Owe Us Money.. So Now Her Lawyer Is Trying To Suck As Much From Her As Possible Cuz He Knows Things Are About To Get Bad For Their Side. There Is Suppose To Be A Court Date (One Of A Zillion) On The 29Th And He Won'T Go With Her If She Doesn'T Pay Him Alot Of Money Up Front, So Now She Is Saying She Is Going To Go To Legal Aid. Is She Eligble Do You Think, And Is This Going To Drag It Out Even Longer? It'S In California...
If she doesn't have the money but her income hasn't changed (even though she has the debt from the laywer) most likely an aid will not take the case. Aids are for people with permanent low levels of income.
California - any state - divorces are dragged out for a long time and some lawyers do it on purpose to profit.
She should have her lawyer withdraw and represent herself or get another lawyer (even though she wil have to put down another big retainer - $1,000-3,000.)
She can drop her lawyer any time she wants - BUT the legal aid may not work if she is making over a certain amount of money. Just because she has run out of money to fight the divorce doesn't mean she's entitled to free/reduced legal aid.
Adoption Laws In Washington?
Ok, So Here Is The Situation. I'M A Single Mom And I Just Found Out I'M Pregnant Again. I Do Not Want To Keep The Baby. I Plan On Giving The Baby To My Sister. We Don'T Want To Go Through Court To Have Her Adopt Him Or Her. Is There A Form I Can Sign That Allows Her To Just Sign His Or Her Birth Certificate? She Has Been Trying For 6 Years So This Would Be Her Blessing. I Need Help!
No, you will have to go through the court process even though you're related. She cannot just sign the original birth certificate they will not allow it, you sign it when baby is born and then once the adoption has happened they issue a new one with her name. She will need to have the standard adoption home study done [where a social worker comes and checks her out]. Also not sure of the specific laws in WA on this but generally you need to terminate the fathers parental rights in some 'official' way before any adoption can take place. Talk to a lawyer that does independent adoptions, they can explain the entire process to you.

Tennessee Service Dog Laws?
I Have Aspergers Syndrome And I Am Training My Own Service Dog To Help When I Have A Breakdown When I Get Over Stimulated In Social Situation. Sometimes I Get So Upset I Pass Out. I Have Been Looking Up Laws Regarding Service Dogs And The Only Laws I Can Find For Tennessee Regard Guide Dogs And Hearing Dogs. Are Psychiatric Service Dogs Allowed In Tennessee And What Are The Laws? I Know The Federal Law Allows It And That Is Why I Began Training And I Read That Federal Law Overrules The State Law But I Am Still Confused. Also Where Can I Go To Get A License For My Dog? I Know You Don'T Have To Have One But Having One Would Make Things A Lot Easier.
So far as I know, TN does not recognize PSDs, nor trainers. So until your dog is fully trained as a service dog (meeting the definition under the ADA) you'll have no rights beyond what a normal pet owner would have. That means you'll have to ask businesses for permission to visit their facilities to train. It also means no venues where food is prepared or served until training is complete.
The federal law does not overrule state law. That is a common misconception. Whichever law grants the greater rights to the person with a disability prevails. Sometimes that is the federal law, and sometimes that is the state law. Consider the protections of the ADA to be the minimum, or the least protection you can count on, but your state might give you more (except not in the case of TN).
Unfortunately, TN has a bad track record with the ADA. The state actually sued for the right to discriminate against its own disabled citizens. They lost in a Supreme Court ruling, but still it tells you something about their attitude about the disabled. As further evidence of TN's backwardness in the area of disability rights, take a look at this gem: http://www.tennessee.gov/attorneygeneral...
(Please note: he is incorrect, the ADA specifically says that "credentials" cannot be required as a condition of public access see: http://www.ada.gov/svcanimb.htm )
A license is just what cities and some counties issue to all dogs, be they pet or service dog. Some states offer special licenses for service dogs, but I don't think that is true of TN and wouldn't matter if it was since they don't recognize PSDs anyway. You can register or certify a dog for a fee, but this is pointless. Certification and registration do not make a dog a service dog. Those schemes are all scams meant to cheat the disabled (and people wanting to pass pets off as service animals). So just skip it. Instead, carry a copy of the "Business Brief" (link above) and the number for the Department of Justice's ADA information line (800 - 514 - 0301).
Here's a free law card you can print out and carry in your wallet. It helps to get it laminated so it lasts longer: http://www.deltasociety.org/Document.Doc... And here's a nice three-fold brochure from the same people that may prove helpful in educating the public: http://www.deltasociety.org/Document.Doc?id=239
What you do need, for your own sake, is to start collecting your own paper trail of documentation. Make sure your doctor mentions recommending your use of a service dog in your medical records. Make sure to discuss with him whether he considers you disabled and for him to make note of that determination in your medical records. Then keep a training log showing when, how long, and what you train your dog in each session.
Should you wind up in a position where you have to prove you are disabled and your dog is trained as a service dog, this is the documentation you really need. Those fake ones don't hold up in court or any place where they actually can require proof. So you might as well collect the real thing and have it ready if you ever need it. It's hard to collect later on down the road after an issue arises, so collect it now, as you go along.
Remember that the ADA does not apply to dogs in training, so your dog must already be trained as a service dog before the ADA gives you any rights to use the dog in public.
These are the notes I've collected on TN, though I'm about to update my notes (they're a bit old): http://servicedogcentral.org/content/node/42
There are others with aspergers and service dogs active on the SDC forum at http://servicedogcentral.org/forum if you are interested in interacting with others who face similar situations.
edited to add:
I thought you might be interested in that Supreme Court case where TN sued for the right to discriminate. Here it is if you'd like to read it for yourself: http://servicedogcentral.org/content/node/248
The answer above mine is just a copy/paste of the law card I gave you a link to. It's much more convenient in it's original form ( http://www.deltasociety.org/Document.Doc?id=346 ) because it's formatted to fit in your wallet. Wish she had given the link for the source of her information instead of just doing a copy/paste and letting it look like she'd written the answer herself.

What Are The Child Labor Laws?
I'M Looking For A Job And Im Thirteen Going On Fourteen. But I Have Been Hearing A Lot Of This Child Labor Laws. What Are They?
Child labor laws in the United States include numerous statutes and rules regulating the employment of minors. According to the United States Department of Labor, child labor laws affect those under the age of 12 in a variety of occupations.
The main law regulating child labor in the United States is the Fair Labor Standards Act. In general, for non-agricultural jobs, children under 16 may not be employed, children between 12 and 16 may be employed in allowed occupations during limited hours, and children between 16 and 21 may be employed for unlimited hours in non-hazardous occupations. A number of exceptions to these rules exist, such as for employment by parents, newspaper delivery, and child actors. The regulations for agricultural employment are generally more lenient. Children as young as 12 may be employed unlimited hours outside of school hours with parental permission.
Outside of agriculture, many companies in other industries also set hiring standards for minors, such as in retail, all companies in the retail industry have company policies against hiring minors under the age of 16, and limiting the work the minors do to manual labor. Minors under 18 are not allowed to work a cash register, heavy machinery, or handle money. Minors under 18 who still attend high school, are also limited in the availablity of hours between 3 and 9 pm. Cause of these restrictions, many companies that allow the hiring of 16 and older still do not hire until 18.
