4 Approaches To Help Your Lawyer Assist You To When you really need a legal professional at all, you should work closely using them to be able to win your case. Regardless how competent they may be, they're likely to need your help. Here are four important ways to help your legal team enable you to win: 1. Be Totally Honest Or Higher Your lawyers need and expect your complete cooperation - regardless of what information you're gonna reveal directly to them. Privilege means anything you say is stored in confidence, so don't hold anything back. Your legal team needs to know everything in advance - most especially information the other side could find out about and surprise you with later. 2. Provide Meticulous Records Keep an ongoing and factual account of all information associated with your case. Whether it's witnesses or payments being made, provide your attorneys with the data they have to help them win. 3. Arrive Early For Those Engagements Do not be late when you're appearing before a court and get away from wasting the attorney's time, too, when you are promptly, every time. Actually, because you may want to discuss last second details or perhaps be extra prepared for the situation you're facing, it's a great idea to arrive early. 4. Demonstrate That You May Have Your Act Together If you've been arrested for any kind of crime, it's important so that you can convince the legal court that you just both regret the actions and so are making strides toward boosting your life. For instance, if you're facing driving under the influence, volunteer to get a rehab program. Be sincere and included in the cities the judge is presiding over. Working more closely with the legal team increases your odds of absolute success. Follow these tips, listen closely to how you're advised and ultimately, you should win your case.

Would I Make A Good Lawyer?
Ive Decided That I Wanna Be A Lawyer. It Seems Like A Fascinating Job. Would I Make A Good Lawyer?
Being a lawyer requires dedication, integrity and intellect. It is a knowledge based service, ergo, you will need to develop a strong knowledge of the field in which you wish to practice. Being a lawyer also requires an extremely high level of literacy and a very fine attention to detail. Sometimes a single word or even a comma can mean the difference between winning a matter or losing.
Please note that being a lawyer is nothing like on TV. The pay is terrible for the first couple of years. The hours are very long and your boss will be a complete bastard (until you do things correctly).
Also, you must remember that you are effectively going to make decisions which can have dramatic affects on other peoples lives, they may end up in jail, bankrupt or lose their children, etc. That is a significant burden for any young person. Lawyers face the highest rates of stress and depression (in Australia at least) among any professional group including doctors.
Nonetheless, the skill and art of being a lawyer is very enjoyable, You will become trained to make arguments that shape events rather than being beholden to the decisions of others. People listen to a lawyer, not just because they are a lawyer, but because their words reflect the truth and sage wisdom. You will have a high degree of independence (far greater than most people). It is a position of prestige, trust, responsibility and power. If you survive the first three years, the pay is pretty good as well.

India Adoption Law Question?
If A Person Were To Be Adopted From Calcutta In The Late 1980'S Would Americans Have Been Allowed To Adopt And Also Would That Prospective Parent Have Had To Travel And Stay In India For A Certain Amount Of Time In Order For The Adoption To Go Through?
Here's what I could find:
"Since the 1980's, XXX has been placing Indian children with U.S. families."
- An adoption agency website.
This site explains a little about adoption law in India in the 80's. There was a significant law made in 1980 that addressed Christians and other religions adopting from India.
You could research India case law (available online) for more detailed information.
I would say that yes, and American could have adopted in Calcutta in the 1980's and most likely would have to at least travel there to physically obtain the child and have the necessary travel documents prepared.
Are you writing a story? There are quite a few who come here for information. If so, I hope that you will do some more research (on your own) to find more accurate information!

Need Legal Advice For Kids Safety??!!!?
The Ex And I Split Up Over 8 Years Ago. We Have A Biological Child Together That Is Now 10 Yrs Old And A Child That Is Not Biologically His But We Both Agreed To Put My Ex On The Birth Certificate, So Legally We Have 2 Children Together. Ages Are 10 And 8 Yrs Old. In The Beginning 4-5 Yrs Of Our Seperation(We Were Not Married) I Did Everything In My Ability For Him To Keep Visitation And Contact With The Kids. We Communicated Well, Kids Spent Every Other Weekend And Holidays And Summer Vacation Time With Him As Well As Phone Calls Back And Forth. The Excuses From My Ex Started Coming More And More Frequent After 5 Years. Then Visitations Stopped. His Visits To See The Kids Were Months At A Time, Phone Calls Died Down To Maybe Once A Month And Then Even Less. The Past 2 Years My Kids Have Seen Him Only 4 Times And Maybe 10 Phone Calls To Speak To The Kids. With This Past Year Holding Two Of The Visits And Only 3 Phone Calls Asking About Them And Asking To Speak To Them. On Father'S Day Weekend My Fiance' (Who Is The Biological Father Of Our 8 Year Old) And I Paid For The Entire Visit From My Ex, Just So The Children Could See Him. We Paid For His Gas To Drive Here And Back, Paid For Food, Activities That The Kids Wanted To Do With Him Etc. The Next Time The Kids Saw Him, Was When I Scheduled The Kids To Stay At Their Paternal Grandparents Home For Two Weeks Just Before School Started This Year.
We Received Court Papers From My Ex About A Month Ago Now, Stating That He Wants Sole Custody Of The Kids. Their Is No Reason Why But From What We Understand This Is Standard When Requesting A Visitation Order Being Placed Within The Courts. We Are Currently Trying To Make Him Happy With Visitation. We Agreed To Christmas Visitation, The One Phone Call A Week That He Requested And The Every Other Weekends...Which Is All That He Was Asking For. Here Lies The Issue...Visitation Was Designated To Be Done At The Grandparents Home(He Removed The Children From There During Chirstmas Visitation And Took Them Else Where), He Has Not Made His Designated Day And Time Phone Call To Speak To The Kids, He Has Called The Kids' School And Had Them Pulled Out Of Their Classes To Speak To Them Over The Phone(Which I Am Very Upset About!!), He Chose To Not Have His Weekend Visitation Because One Of The Children Were Not Able To Go(Which Was The Very First Visitation Weekend Since The Court Papers Arrived).
What Can We Do To Protect Our Kids?? Is There Anything That We Can Legally Do That Would Keep Him Away From Them?? Can We Have His Rights Removed And If So, On What Grounds?? We Really Need Some Advice Here!!
Follow your lawyers advice, and completely ignore what I say.
The kids are not being hurt. So this guy comes into their lives for awhile, and eventually he'll get bored with the kids and it'll go back to him almost never visiting the kids. That doesn't hurt the kids.
I understand your point, that the kids are being set up for a disappointment. But I don't think that's a big deal. The kids have a father. So this guy isn't really their father, he's just a guy they see once in awhile. And I'm guessing the kids like to see him, because he gets to play the fun dad. He probably takes them somewhere fun and plays games with them. And that's fine. I really don't think it hurts the kids at all.
He has no chance of getting custody, so don't even worry about that. Even if he could prove that you used a whip on your children, he still couldn't get custody.
I don't think there's any real problem here. Talk to the kids and let them know what's going on. Kids are capable of understanding a lot of things.
I do understand why your upset about him calling the kids at school. That's close to being abusive on his part. But that's really the only thing that's a problem.
What Shifts Do U.S. Forest Service Law Enforcement Officers Work? Are They On Duty 24 Hours A Day?
It depends on where they are working and what they are tasked with. Officers in high recreation areas tend to work longer shifts in the summer months (say 10-12 hours). As with any public servant involved in the law they can be called upon 24-7. I think most work a pretty standard 40 hour week though.
There is a great book out called "The Forest Service & the Greatest Good: A Centennial History", by James G. Lewis. It's the companion book to the documentary "The Greatest Good". If you are really interested in working for the Forest Service I'd suggest getting both. The first link below should help you'll find both the book and the DVD -- that and it's just a really cool site.
I still find it odd that the Forest Service is part of the USDA.
