What Happens To Us Kids In A Divorce Court?
My Parents Are Getting Divorced, Despite My Tries To Get Them To Stay Together.
Anyway, My Mom Is A Recovered Alcoholic(15Mos. Sober) And She Thinks That My Dad Will Fight For Us. She'S In College To Become A Librarian Right Now And Will Graduate This Summer. So, She Has No Income. She Thinks They'Ll Use That Against Her Too.
What Happens To Us Kids? Will We Have To Testify In Front Of A Court? What Questions Will They Ask?
I Love Both Of Them So Much, And I Don'T Know If I Could Handle Questions About &Quot;Who Do I Like More?&Quot; My Mom Would Be The Most Nice, I Know That. But, I Feel Bad About My Dad Too.
I'M So Confused.
Please, Please No Harsh Answers. I Don'T Need Jerks Consulting Me Right Now.
Thanks In Advance.
Talk to both your parents or write them both a letter. Ask them to keep you out of court if at all possible. Tell them that you love them both and want them both in your life. Tell them that as a favor to you, you would like them to share custody.
My parents pulled this with me and I ended up with the parent who had the most money. It sounds cold, but if you have to choose, pick the one who can pay for college, bc you will be out soon.
If you go to court, you will probably have to tell the judge who your first choice is. Your dad will still love you, don't worry. Your mom's income may work against her, but judges rarely take a child away from the mother. Your age will be a factor in how much sway you hold. You sound older, so you will have more of a choice. One way is to try to go for shared custody, seriously. That way, you can stay neutral and not have to pick a side.
I'm sorry this is happening to you. I know it blows. Hang in there. It will get better in time and this too shall pass.
Child Custody Advice?
In About 6-8 Months I Will Be Moving About 6Hrs Away From My Sons Father, My Son Is 3. We Do Not Have Court Mandated Custody, And We Currently Do 50/50. Do I Need To Go To Court If I Am Moving (Assuming My Ex Gives Me Trouble About Taking My Son With Me) Or Can I Just Take Him And Try To Make A Deal With His Father Now Before I Go?
If I Can Avoid Having To Go To Court, All The Better. He Is A Good Father, But Me Moving Is A Done Deal And I Am Not Willing To Negotiate Not Taking Him With Me. I Am More Than Willing To Do Summers And Holidays With His Father, But I Dont Want It To Get Messy. Any Suggestions?
just try to talk it out with the father and come to a mutual agreement. definately write up the agreement and file it with the court system just to protect yourself and the father. it cannot be expected of you to not go on with your life. this could be a great opportunity for you to better yourself thus bettering your child. 50/50 custody is obviously impossible and anyone that cannot understand that is either nieve or just plain stupid. if things were to get ugly and have to go to court, then unfortunately that's what has to happen. as long as there is no danger to the child you have nothing to worry about. definately go to the father first though and try to work it out this way, though. the father will appreciate that more than you not trusting that he can be understanding and going to file things behind his back and him just suddenly getting a summons while having no clue. good luck.
How To Find Law Firms, Attorneys Working With Clinical Trials?

- Mom Doesn’T Share Any Information About Health Of My Child. What Is My Rights
I am not sure but I have heard that you stand a much better chance at getting shared custody in FL than CA. I would suggest filing in this state if you must file for divorce.
I would highly recommend that you move to Florida. I know this sounds extreme, but you should do whatever it takes to stay in the childs life. Try to sit down with your ex and if need be beg her to share custody with you. Don't let pride stand in your way. The childs well being and health are at stake here. Do whatever you need to stay involved in the childs life. I have eaten a lot of crow, it doesn't taste that bad when you're hungry.
I have included a few links below that I am sure will help both you and your ex find a way to put aside your petty differences and help you work together for the sake of your child. Studies show that equal time with both parents will make a child more likely to grow up emotionally well adjusted and healthy, and more likely to perform better in school and life.
I will gladly do anything I can to help. If you need anything at all, please feel free to contact me. My profile is public and I have nothing to hide.

Lawyer. Please Help?
I'M Pretty Sure I Want To Be A Lawyer When I Grow Up, But I'M Not Positive. Can Someone Give Me An Extremely In Depth Description Of A Lawyers Job? And How Much School You Need, All That Stuff.
Lawyers are a dime a dozen. Actually, with the proliferation of law schools and lowering of standards the degree will be as esteemed as a truck driving school certificate. A lot of law schools admissions policy is if you got the dough, or are willing to take on debt, you can go. Look at Massachusetts School of Law and Appalachian Law School in Virginia for examples, it is a joke, they should have truck driving academies right next to their schools. You would not see those low standards at a dental or medical school. Some people talk about doctors being sued and high malpractice insurance, do not let the medical profession fool you, doctors and dentists make the most money in our society even after paying for their malpractice insurance. If you eliminated med-mal suits it would have little or no impact on the affordability and accessibility of health care, the docs would just pocket the extra money. By the way I have sued lawyers for malpractice but never a doc/dentist, I look forward to it.
I am an attorney. However, I went to a top 15 school and had mediocre grades. I found the job market to be depressing. So much time, planning, and money went into undergraduate school, I had a 4.0 GPA, and scored above the 95th percentile on the LSAT, 171. I naively thought going to a top school their would be plenty of lucrative and exciting jobs waiting for me and I would be set to have a good quality of life. I remember sending out 300 letters one time and getting no positive response, either they said some nonsense about you are great, you have good accomplishments, but at this time we cannot offer you a position, we will keep your resume on file. I took the Bar Exam in two states wasting time studying and not earning any money. I had to move back in with my parents, fun. Meanwhile many of my friends and people that I knew from High School and College were establishing themselves in their careers and making money, gettng promotions, etc. I worked post-law school as a car salesman and a mortgage broker. Finally, a family friend had a friend who was a solo attorney, I worked for him basically for free, actually it was negative because I spent money on travel, long distance phone calls, etc., still living at home with mom and dad, saddled with law school debts, the student loan people started calling wanting $$$. Eventually, I left that attorney. I struggled to find another attorney job. I got a job in 2003 at a firm paying the princely sum of $25,000 per year. I moved out of my parent's house but was still subsidized by them. Dad kept threatening to cut me off, but I lived in an expensive state the cheapest place to stay I found was $1,500 a month all inclusive. My paycheck was like $430.00 a week take home. Eventually, I did go solo, it was hard, but I did make some money in real estate closings for 3 1/2 years. Now the real estate market stinks and I have no income, and I am trying to plan my next move. I have interviewed for some associate positions and the salary range was 38k-55k, this is pretty low for someone with 5 yrs experience and a doctorate degree. My wife works at a nail salon, as a manicurist, she took a three month course and makes 50K a year. It has been an exquisitely painful road for me. In my family I am the most educated and the least financially secure. My dad makes like $350,000K engineering+MBA degree, my younger sister makes $165,000K a year psyche degree and an MBA. My conclusion, LAW SUCKS!!!!!!!!!! Too many law schools fighting for tuition $$$, night programs, weekend programs, low academic standards, too many attorneys, lowering wages and limiting opportunities, compare to the AMA and ADA that insure a shortage of dentists and doctors. When I was solo it seemed like everyone was an attorney, or their cousin was an attorney, or their sister's friend was an attorney, or their brother was an attorney and so and so on, I lost a lot of business because of this. I do not think doctors and dentists face such client poaching. If you are in the top 5%, law review, and went to a good school, yes, you will probably get a good job right from the start. I would have been better off not going to College and instead picking up a trade like being an electrician. Heck, if I had all the money I wasted on education, worked at a gas station during all my non-earning years and put the money into a CD I could probably be able to retire. Looking back, if I had to do it again, if you want to through the hard work and invest the $$$ for education so it pays off you should go into healthcare. Heck their is a shortage of pharmacists and their median wage is $98,000K well above lawyers. Dentists 180,000K median and their is a shortage. Oh well this sucks but this is my life and I will deal with it, I spent my educational time and $$$, and the dye is cast.
From US News, Poor careers for 2006
By Marty Nemko
Attorney. If starting over, 75 percent of lawyers would choose to do something else. A similar percentage would advise their children not to become lawyers. The work is often contentious, and there's pressure to be unethical. And despite the drama portrayed on TV, real lawyers spend much of their time on painstakingly detailed research. In addition, those fat-salaried law jobs go to only the top few percent of an already high-powered lot.
Many people go to law school hoping to do so-called public-interest law. (In fact, much work not officially labeled as such does serve the public interest.) What they don't teach in law school is that the competition for those jobs is intense. I know one graduate of a Top Three law school, for instance, who also edited a law journal. She applied for a low-paying job at the National Abortion Rights Action League and, despite interviewing very well, didn't get the job.
From the Associated Press, MADISON, Wis. (AP) - A lawmaker who persuaded the Assembly to eliminate all state funding for the University of Wisconsin law school says his reasoning is simple: There's too many lawyers in Wisconsin.
From an ABA study about malpractice claims, More Sole Practicioners: There appears to be an increasing trend toward sole practicioners, due partly to a lack of jobs for new lawyers, but also due to increasing dissatisfaction among experienced lawyers with traditional firms; leading to some claims which could have been avoided with better mentoring.
New Lawyers: Most insurers have noticed that many young lawyers cannot find jobs with established firms, and so are starting their own practices without supervision or mentoring. This is likely to cause an increase in malpractice claims, although the claims may be relatively small in size due to the limited nature of a new lawyers
“In a survey conducted back in 1972 by the American Bar Association, seventy percent of Americans not only didn’t have a lawyer, they didn’t know how to find one. That’s right, thirty years ago the vast majority of people didn’t have a clue on how to find a lawyer. Now it’s almost impossible not to see lawyers everywhere you turn."

A law degree isn't necessarily a license to print money these days.
For graduates of elite law schools, prospects have never been better. Big law firms this year boosted their starting salaries to as high as $160,000. But the majority of law-school graduates are suffering from a supply-and-demand imbalance that's suppressing pay and job growth. The result: Graduates who don't score at the top of their class are struggling to find well-paying jobs to make payments on law-school debts that can exceed $100,000. Some are taking temporary contract work, reviewing documents for as little as $20 an hour, without benefits. And many are blaming their law schools for failing to warn them about the dark side of the job market.
The law degree that Scott Bullock gained in 2005 from Seton Hall University -- where he says he ranked in the top third of his class -- is a "waste," he says. Some former high-school friends are earning considerably more as plumbers and electricians than the $50,000-a-year Mr. Bullock is making as a personal-injury attorney in Manhattan. To boot, he is paying off $118,000 in law-school debt.
"Unfortunately, some find the practice of law is not for them," Seton Hall's associate dean, Kathleen Boozang, said through a spokeswoman. "However, it is our experience that a legal education is a tremendous asset for a variety of professional paths."
A slack in demand appears to be part of the problem. The legal sector, after more than tripling in inflation-adjusted growth between 1970 and 1987, has grown at an average annual inflation-adjusted rate of 1.2% since 1988, or less than half as fast as the broader economy, according to Commerce Department data.
Compare this to health care:
* Health care. Almost half the 30 fastest growing occupations are concentrated in health services -- including medical assistants, physical therapists, physician assistants, home health aides, pharmacists, physicians, dentists and medical records and health information technicians -- according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.
Some practice areas have declined in recent years: Personal-injury and medical-malpractice cases have been undercut by state laws limiting class-action suits, out-of-state plaintiffs and payouts on damages. Securities class-action litigation has declined in part because of a buoyant stock market.
On the supply end, more lawyers are entering the work force, thanks in part to the accreditation of new law schools and an influx of applicants after the dot-com implosion earlier this decade. In the 2005-06 academic year, 43,883 Juris Doctor degrees were award
