It is always a good idea to give priority consideration to the information provided by your state's attorneys as they are most often the best source of up-to-date information on local law.
Mrs. Atighechi is ALSO from CA. CA means California and it is the same California the asker is from!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It starts to feel like WHERE IS WALDO! when I see your pic everywhere! I don't want to see it any longer!
As previously noted, I agree with the answers given by the other attorneys however; it is important note that lawyers and judges alike may approach the same law from different viewpoints and reach different conclusions. Thus, I usually recommend consulting directly with an attorney who practices in your local court and who is familiar with the opinions of the judges most likely to consider your issue. Similarly, I believe all the attorneys who answer questions here on Avvo make their best effort to provide accurate and useful information, but I always recommend giving priority consideration to the information provided by the attorneys from your state. Good luck!
Now you have a third "Cut and paste" to put in!
I will have one too: "Where is Waldo?
Here is Waldo Brown!
Translation: Mrs. Brown thinks it's helps you if your lawyer lives next door to the Judge and brings him wine."
