Help, Arrested For Felony Dui California?
How Can I Get An Early Release With Home Arrest For My Crime ?
Ive Already Been Convicted Sentenced To 18 Months State.
Sence Have Attended 2 Alcohol Rehabs Programs And Aa Mettings
Im Currently In La County Twin Towers, I Have Kids And Dont Want To Lose My Home And Health Ins.
I Can Run My Business From My House.
So you were already convicted to do 18 months state because of a DUI? Or was that for another crime?
Get a lawyer to talk to the judge. My friend got a DUI, but it was for 20 days and he was able to go to jail on weekends for the next 10 weekends. No bargaining, the judge gladly agreed to it. And that was for a second DUI here in California.
Do Anyone No Of A Affordable Lawyer That Deals Witg Private Adoption?
Personally, I don't know of ANY affordable lawyers. Adoption Lawyers tend to be as expensive as any other type of lawyer. If you want to adopt you need to save money until you can afford the process.
Will I Win The Child Custody Case?
I Have 2 Jobs, Good Medical Insurance For Me And My Son. I Check Up On Him When He'S At His Dad/Grandparents House. I Don'T Party Or Go Out When I Have Him At The House. I Make Sure He Has Clothes, Shoes, Food, Etc. The Only Con I Have About Myself Is I Had Got In A Car Accident And Got A Dui In January This Year, I Didn'T Do Any Jail Time Because I Had A Broken Arm. But They Never Convicted Me/Took Me To Court. The Only Way That Would Count Against Me In A Child Custody Case Is If I Was On My Way To Get My Son Or If He Was In The Car, Which Wasn'T The Case At All. He Was At His Dad'S House. Other Than That My Ex'S Cons Are : He Doesn'T Have Medical Insurance For Our Son, He Talks Negatively About Me On Twitter And So Does His Ex, He Only Has 1 Job And It'S An On Call Job, Hes Moving To Florida (We'Re In Cali) For Football In July This Year, He Said Only Call Him When It'S An Emergency, Not Just If I Need To Discuss Stuff About Our Son (I Never Call Him If It'S Not About Him), There Was 2 Times Where He Didn'T Call Or Text All Day When He Was Supposed To Have Our Son Those Days. Given This Information/Facts, Does It Sound Like I'D Get Custody?
If you're his biological mother, and have all these credentials, then yes custody is not an issue. Which custody is the question? Full? Joint? Remember there are various types of custody.
Legal custody refers to the legal authority to make major decisions on behalf of the child. Examples of major decisions include: where the child will go to school, the type of education, the form of religious upbringing, and non-emergency medical decisions. Legal custody options include:
Sole Legal Custody: The parent who has sole legal custody is the only person who has the legal authority to make major decisions on behalf of the child. These include decisions regarding education, religion, and health care.
Joint Legal Custody: Joint legal custody means that both parents have the legal authority to make major decisions for the child. It should be noted that parents can potentially share "joint legal custody" without having "joint physical custody."
Physical custody refers where the children live the majority of the time. This is sometimes referred to as "residential custody." Types of physical custody include:
Sole Physical Custody: With this type of child custody, the child physically resides at one location. In most cases, the non-custodial parent is awarded generous visitation rights, including sleepovers.
Joint Physical Custody: This form of child custody is also called "Shared Custody," "Shared Parenting," or "Dual Residence." In this situation, the child/ren live with one parent for part of the week (or part of the year), and live with the other parent during the remaining time. The division of time spent at each location is approximately equal.
Bird's Nest Custody: This is when the children live in one central location, and the parents rotate in and out of the children's home on a regular schedule. For example, mom may reside at the children's home Monday evening through Thursday, and Dad may reside there from Thursday evening through Monday morning.
This being said, regarding what type of custody the father will get depends. You are a given. Unless you are a danger to the child or have unfit living situation, and the better option is with the father, then you have nothing to worry about. They won't take custody from you. Judges favour mothers, but they are suppose to be non-bias. The judge will take into consideration several factors before deciding.
Visitation however, is something you may not be able to prevent.

Katie - This is a tough one!
Talk to your therapist and maybe make an additional session during the next few weeks.
Sorry that this may be tough to hear - Yes the document is binding and will stand up if you signed the agreement. In all these details that one is missing. Yes, being held for 24 hours from an attack can count against you. Yes, at some point you can ask the court to drug test him. Ask for a blood test.

Does Anybody Know Of A Good But Cheap Child Support Attorney In Des Moines Iowa?? I’M Desperate Please Help?
I Am Desperate Guys And Gals. My Daughters Mother Has Made My Life Hell Since Day One. She Filed A Protective Order On Me After I Left Her, I Told Her 3 Weeks Later That I Would Be With Her And She Dropped The Protective Order. She Threatens Me With Court, And Lawyers And Kidnapping Every Time I Have Visitation With My Daughter. Their Is No Court Order For Custody, Visitation, Or Child Support At The Time, But I Was Served Papers Yesterday Regarding Court For Paternity, And Child Support. I Have Tons Of Documentation Between Me And My Child'S Mom Where She Is Threatening Me, Telling Me She Hopes I Die And I Can See My Daughter If She Isn'T Insane Or Feeling Insane At That Point. Im At My Wits End And Don'T Have Much Left In Me. I Don'T Make Much Money 21K Year, And Attempted To Go Through Iowa Legal Aid, But Since My Child'S Mother Went Thier, They Advised Me It Would Be A Conflict Of Interest To Help Me.
Sounds like you need a child custody lawyer, not support. Support you are going to have to pay no matter what you make. That is normally set following a guideline based on your income and her income.
If you want time with your daughter, then you need to file for visitation or even shared custody so you can at least know she is safe when she's with you.
Law Student Needing Help! I'M Studying To Be A Paralegal And Need Help In Civil Litigation Pleadings; Please!!
My Professor Gave Us A Ficticious Case And Now We Must Find The Correct Forms To Fill Out Etc. I Know We Have To Find A Medical Release Form, Look Up The Ca Statute Of Limitations, And Write A Retainer Agreement. The Case Is A Civil Suit For Personal Injury. Our Client Was Hit By A Car And Shattered Her Pelvis And Is Claiming Also Some Brain Damage. She Has 2 Kids 3 & 1 1/2, And Is A Student. I'M Having A Problem Finding A Retainer Agreement So If Someone Has Any Tips On Writing One Please Reply, Or If Anyone Can Give Me Any Advise On Civil Litigation Procedings It Would Be Very Appreciated! Thank You For Taking The Time To Reading This. Take Care And Wish Me Luck!!
The retainer agreement is usually longer than the first poster's example (at least 3-5 pages long). A medical release can be anywhere from 1-4 pages long, depending on whether one wants the HIPPA language in it.
Here are some samples (specifically for hospitals):
Also, please note that Retainer Agreements vary by the state (because one will want to cite to state law within the retainer agreement). But here are some samples:
Again, each state's requirements for the retainer agreement are different.
Here is one from the California State Bar (since it looks like you're looking for CA):
It's at the bottom where it states "Sample Written Fee Agreement Forms."
CA Statute of Limitations for Personal Injury is 2 years from the date of the incident (it's either in the Civil Code section 340 et seq. or Code of Civil Procedure Section 340 et seq. [sorry, can't remember which at the time, but you can search for it with Findlaw.com).
Statute of limitations is different for the children (if they were injured in the accident).
