4 Approaches To Help Your Lawyer Help You When you need a lawyer at all, you have to work closely using them so that you can win your case. Regardless how competent they can be, they're likely to need your help. Listed below are four important methods to help your legal team assist you to win: 1. Be Totally Honest And Up Your lawyers need and expect your complete cooperation - whatever information you're going to reveal to them. Privilege means everything you say is stored in confidence, so don't hold anything back. Your legal team needs to know everything in advance - especially information another side could find out about and surprise you with later. 2. Provide Meticulous Records Keep a continuous and factual account of most information related to your case. Whether it's witnesses or payments being made, provide your attorneys because of the data they must assist them to win. 3. Turn Up Early For All Those Engagements Do not be late when you're appearing before a court and steer clear of wasting the attorney's time, too, by being on time, whenever. Actually, because you may have to discuss eleventh hour details or even be extra prepared for the case you're facing, it's a smart idea to arrive early. 4. Demonstrate That You Have Your Act Together If you've been arrested for just about any crime, it's important in order to prove to the court which you both regret the actions and so are making strides toward enhancing your life. As an example, if you're facing a DUI, volunteer for any rehab program. Be sincere and included in the neighborhood the judge is presiding over. Working more closely together with your legal team increases your odds of absolute success. Follow these tips, listen closely to how you're advised and ultimately, you must win your case.

Divorced Four Years, Husband Stopped Paying Alimony?
Was To Get Alimony For Life. He Stopped Paying And Is Trying To Terminate Paying Me At All. He Is A Successful Business Man. I Never Went To College, No Job Experience. Worked Menial Jobs Occasionally, Now Work Per Diem Part Time For Minimum Wage. He Is Uncooperative During The Deposition, Not Producing Documents Requested, Not Answering Questions. Can He Get Away With This? My Attorney Gave A Deadline To Produce Documents But My Guess Is That Will Come And Go As That Was The Way My X Handled The Original Divorce. I'D Like To Know If Anyone Has Been In The Same Type Of Circumstances Or Knows Of Any Similar Situations. Also, Can He Get Away With This?
No, he can't get away with this. After three months of not paying your alimony, your lawyer needs to go back to court and seek to have your husband held in contempt-of-court and punished. And he should ask for the monies owed to be paid plus interest. It may even be possible that the alimony to be paid monthly be turned into a large lump sump payment. Consult with your lawyer to make sure you don't get screwed over.
Your ex doesn't want to pay for his obligations...don't let him get away with it. Use your lawyer and take him back to court. If you are very lucky, the judge might even toss your ex into jail overnight to reflect on his legal obligations. Good luck and God bless!
Addendum: Jessica, although you say it is no longer possible to get alimony for life in your state, in many states it is still possible and it does happen. California is a good example. If a woman is married in California for ten plus years and her husband divorces her, she can get alimony for life. And if you don't believe me, go ask Tom Cruise all about it. He got stuck with alimony payments to his ex, Nicole Kidman, but he got lucky because she remarried...and remarriage is the one thing that will stop "alimony for life" (any other kind of alimony too).
Addendum #2: If the agreement says that your ex can modify it but you can't, then it is an unfair agreement. Have your lawyer point that out to the judge. Also, if he is claiming poverty, demand to see his tax returns.
If I Went To College For Criminal Law And Forensic Science For 4 Years What Else Is Needed For Secret Service?
Assuming the college was Regionally Accredited, that is sufficient to apply. For other requirements check: http://www.secretservice.gov/join/index.... and for special agents: http://www.secretservice.gov/join/career...
Any major is acceptable, but CJ, Computer Science, Sociology, Accounting, or Psych may stand you in better stead for most positions. However, GPA is probably more important than major. Those meeting the minimum requirements may not compare well to the best qualified applicants, and there are always more applicants than positions. The FBI likes lawyers and accountants, but they hire from various backgrounds, with at least 3 years of substantive employment (http://www.fbijobs.gov/). The same could be said for the Secret Service, their primary duties (outside of protection) involve financial crimes and counterfeiting. Any responsible employment may acceptable, but law enforcement may be beneficial (particularly investigative rather than patrol). Other federal agency job announcements should be available at https://my.usajobs.gov/login.aspx.
The FBI in particular needs people capable of investigating major frauds and conspiracies involving numerous business and technical occupations and professions; whereas, local police are more oriented to street crime. Federal agents must be capable of understanding and communicating at a level above that usually expected from patrol officers. Federal agencies are looking for people who fit in at all social strata, and the expectations are greater with regard to preparation of reports and affidavits. In my experience, state and local officers have their affidavits for search and arrest warrants written by prosecutors; whereas, federal agents write their own.
Being a military officer will normally be advantageous, and military service usually provides veteran preference in the hiring process. However, enlisted service will not necessarily enhance one’s prospects, unless in a specialized position or exemplary service is documented. Military police assignments will not necessarily provide an advantage over infantry assignments, and the branch of service is not necessarily important. Being a practicing attorney or accountant would also place one in a good position. Forensic computer expertise and language capabilities are valued in all agencies.
You are more likely to be successful if you do not restrict yourself to one agency. Moreover, agents get hired from other agencies regularly. If you have proven yourself in another agency (particularly federal), you will have an advantage for FBI hiring. Being a police officer may be helpful, depending on personal performance, assignments, and agency reputation.
In my experience, hiring decisions are made based on college GPA (above 3.5 is a plus), written examinations, physical fitness (possibly physical test results), work experience, possibly a polygraph, ability to communicate orally and in writing, foreign language ability, and graduate/law degrees. There are always more applicants than there are positions.
There are numerous special agent positions (see list below, not all have full arrest, search, and seizure authority), in what was and I assume still is the 1811 job series (1810 are unarmed investigators without arrest authority). There are also law enforcement related positions in the Dept of Homeland Security and other agencies, such as inspector positions or Border Patrol agents, that could be open to those with 2 years of college or less. And, there are federal police officers within federal agencies (e.g., Dept of Veterans Affairs, Treasury, Federal Protective Service). Agencies:
ATF, Customs and Border Protection (uniform wearing: Border Patrol Agent, Officers), DEA, Dept of Def, Dept of State, Dept of Homeland Sec (ICE, TSA), Dept of Labor, EPA, FBI, FDA, Fish & Wildlife (few positions, many applicants), Inspector General Offices within departments and/or agencies, IRS, Marshals Service, Secret Svc, Securities Exchange Commission, and each branch of the Armed Forces (some civilian, some active duty).
Apply at as many places as possible, and accept the first offer. Then, if that’s not where you want to be, keep applying to the agency you want.
Public Defender Or State Attorney'S Office Internship?
I Am A Recent Graduate Planning On Attending Law School Next Year And Have A Choice Between A Local Public Defender Or State Attorney'S Office Internship. Since I'M Not Yet A Law Student I Understand That I Will Be Doing A Mix Of Clerical And Legal Work. Which Of These Is Better For Which Students? For Example, If I Don'T Ever Plan On Working As A Prosecutor/Da/ For The Gov'T Then Should I Not Do The State Attorney'S Office? Is One Considered Relatively More Prestigious Than The Other?
I would recommend state's attorney because you'll be exposed to a lot more types of law there. Public defender is just criminal law, and if you don't know what you want to do, working with the state attorney's office will cover more legal ground so you'll get some different experiences.
One isn't really more prestigious than the other. Neither one will help you get into law school more than the other, and neither one will help you get a job once you're in law school more than the other. If you're sure you want to do criminal law (or if you want a more in-depth experience) go with the public defender. Otherwise state's attorney makes more sense for broader exposure.

Multiple-Family Applications-Kansas Child Support Guidelines?
(State Of Kansas) Last Year, My Husband'S Exwife Sought An Increase In Child Support, Which Allowed Us To Use The Multiple-Family Application. His Eldest Daughter Is Now 18 And Recently Graduated Highschool So His Cs Obligation For Her Is No More, However He Had To File A Motion To Change The Income Withholding Order, Which He Did. He Is Representing Himself And Has Done More Than Adequate Reasearch On The Calculations, Guidelines, Etc. He Sent A Proposed Cs Worksheet To His Ex'S Attorney (Using The Multiple-Family Application) And Her Attorney Is Stating He Is Not Allowed To That This Time Because She Is Not Seeking And Increase In Support. My Questions: Since The Courts Already Allowed Him To Used It When She Was Seeking An Increase, Will It Be Allowed This Time, As Well? He Had No Choice But To File A Motion To Modify In Order To Change The Income Withholding Order And, Although His Ex Received Documented Notification Of The Hearing, Requested A Continuance Saying She Wasn'T Prepared. Would Her Request To Set Aside Be Considered A &Quot;Request For Increase&Quot; Although She Didn'T Formally File A Motion As Such? Thank You In Advance For Any Tips.
I'm in OPKS. These will help teach him about child support.
