4 Methods To Help Your Lawyer Enable You To When you really need an attorney for any excuse, you must work closely with them to be able to win your case. Irrespective of how competent they are, they're going to need your help. Here are four important approaches to help your legal team help you win: 1. Be Totally Honest Or Higher Your lawyers need and expect your complete cooperation - no matter what information you're planning to reveal to them. Privilege means anything you say is stored in confidence, so don't hold anything back. Your legal team has to know everything in advance - especially information another side could find out about and surprise you with later. 2. Provide Meticulous Records Keep a continuing and factual account of all information related to your case. Whether it's witnesses or payments being made, provide your attorneys with the data they have to enable them to win. 3. Turn Up Early For Those Engagements Never be late when you're appearing before a court and steer clear of wasting the attorney's time, too, because they are punctually, each and every time. Actually, because you may need to discuss last minute details or be extra ready for the situation you're facing, it's smart to arrive early. 4. Demonstrate You Have Your Act Together If you've been responsible for any kind of crime, it's important in order to prove to a legal court that you just both regret the actions and are making strides toward enhancing your life. For instance, if you're facing a DUI, volunteer for the rehab program. Be sincere and associated with the cities the judge is presiding over. Working more closely along with your legal team increases your chances of absolute success. Follow these tips, listen closely to how you're advised and ultimately, you ought to win your case.

I Would Like Info On Power Of Attorney And Common Law Marriage In Texas?
I Would Like Info On Power Of Attorney And Common Law Marriage In Texas, My Boy Friend And I Have Lived Together In Same House For Over Ten Years And He Is Now In Icu At The Hospital I Am Claimed On Irs As A Dependent Under The Box Other, Since There Is Not A Box For Common Law Wife Or Live In Girlfriend Any Info Will Help
you referred to him as "boyfriend" one part of the law in Texas includes "representation to others that the parties are married." you obviously don't meet that criteria.
in TX for this to be recognized:
Under § 2.401 of the Texas Family Code, an informal marriage can be established either by declaration (registering at the county courthouse without having a ceremony), or by meeting a three-prong test showing evidence of (1) an agreement to be married; (2) cohabitation in Texas; and (3) representation to others that the parties are married. A 1995 update adds an evidentiary presumption that there was no marriage if no suit for proof of marriage is filed within two years of the date the parties separated and ceased living together.
since you most likely don't have the ability to prove you are married you will have to have at least a limited POA for medical issues. If you do NOT have that already and he is not mentally and/or physically able to provide that you will need the courts assistance...
being considered a dependent for the IRS is irrelevant......

It's called wrongful death. The coroner or county prosecutor will make a determination whether to try the caregiver in criminal court for manslaughter, 2nd or first degree murder or some other felony or misdemeanor. Even if there is no charge, the caregiver can still be tried in civil court for monetary damages.

YOU ARE SMEARING YOU @SS WITH COW MANURE AND PLANTING GRASS SEED FOR HER TO MOW WHENEVER SHE SHE HAS THE DESIRE TO!!!
It that clear enough. You are leaving yourself wide open to all kinds of problems. At the minimum, you should get Joint "LEGAL" Custody, with her being primary residential, but with a very detailed access schedule. In 40% of the cases, fathers are denied access to their children, which will happen to moment she bring a "New Daddy" home for the child.
Right now she has sole custody and control. You voluntarily gave that the very moment you put your pecker in her without first getting married.
Study these and do the right thing for you and your child.

How Do I File For Custody Of My Son If We Are Not Married? Do I Need A Lawyer?
My Girlfriend And I Live In California. Recently She Just Left Me And Our 3Yr Old Son, For What I Can Only Describe As A Partying And Drug Binge. We'Ve Never Had Any Custody Papers Or Anything. Is There Some Paper Work I Can Just Fill Out Somewhere, Or Do I Have To Go To An Attny?
No, you don't need a lawyer. Filing for custody is fairly simple. You would go to the court house and tell the court clerk that you want to file a motion for sole custody. The clerk will give you the proper paperwork you need and help you file it. Once that's done you get a court date where you will have to show up and argue why you should have sole custody. It helps that you have proof of what the mom is doing, that she's not being responsible.
Your girlfriend will have to be served with the court papers so that she can show up to the hearing. If she contests the motion it may get more difficult but in the end the judge will make a decision based on what is best for the child. You can also get joint legal custody with you having physical custody, meaning that the child lives with you. Mom would get visitation. It is generally easier to get joint custody if the other party doesn't agree to giving up custody completely.
If you are worried about the mother's ability to care for the child during visitation, or if you think she may take off with him, you can ask for supervised visitation at first.
If you need some legal advice Legal Aid is a great place to turn to. They work a lot with custody issues and can give you advice. If the mom creates a problem and it becomes a custody battle it is a good idea to hire a lawyer if you can.
ETA: I forgot to mention, is it established that you are the father? Did you sign an acknowledgement of paternity when your son was born and is your name in the birth certificate? If not you would have to establish paternity in court first. Ask legal aid about how to do that in your state.
California Dui Laws?
I Got A Dui 7 Years Ago. My Fault I Know And I Deserved It. Since Then I Have Not Been Dui At All. When I Was Sentenced Originally I Was Sentenced To 3 Years Probation And My Driving Record Would Report The Dui For 7 Years Along With Some Hefty Fines. Just A Week Ago I Found Out That In 2004 Arnold Extended The Time Of My Probation To Ten Years And The Dui Also Stays On My Record For Ten Years. It Seems To Me That I Am Being Given Two Different Sentences For The Same Offense. I Dont Disagree That The Laws Should Be More Harsh However I Dont Think It Is Right To Punish Those Who Have Already Been Punished Once Before Unless They Continue To Screw Up. What Can I Do If Anything. My Driving Record Is Important To My Job. Im In Cali.
Your probation has not been extended. In fact, the maximum period of your probation for a first time DUI was (and is) five years. You should have been off probation for some time now.
However, the "priorability" period for your offense has been extended from seven to ten years. The rationale for this is that if you are arrested for a NEW DUI, and receive a punishment for that offense, you are not being punished for the old offense, so it is not an issue of double punishment.
You also know (or are presumed to know) at the time you commit the new offense, that with a prior conviction, the sentence for the new offense will be higher. So the law, which is applicable at the time you commit the new offense, is not being retroactively applied.
So bottom line, people who do not screw up again are not being punished again. But people who DO screw up again within 8-10 years are being punished more harshly than they would have been a few years ago.
