    If you cannot afford an attorney, you can do it yourself. You just have to become familar with the law and procedures of the applicable state. Some states and/or courts have booklets for pro se family court litigants. At the minimum, you may be able to find court specific information online.

    I read your comment to the first answer. Yes, a contempt and a possible petition for a change in custody might be the best avenues for your husband. In addition, your husband can always call the police when he goes over to the house to pick up the child at 6:00pm. He will need to bring the order with him that allows him to pick up the child at 6:00pm.

    Nobody has to hire an attorney, but it is better to hire an experienced family law attorney to protect your rights and to explain the law. Most people simply don't have the time to do research to learn the law and court procedure. Every court is different. However, the court should have provided you with a packet to explain exactly what forms you need to complete beforehand and the perimeters of the conference. Normally, the initial conference will allow the judge to see if the case can...

    You should have consulted an attorney before signing the original agreement. If Texas is like Georgia, divorce decrees regarding the division of assets and liabilities are not subject to amendment. However, in Georgia, child support, custody, and visitation are subject to modification. As a result, you may have given up marital assets for nothing. You should consult an attorney in Texas about these matters. Therefore, repost the question for Texas. Indeed, if Texas attorneys are...

    Your mother appointed you as an executor of the will. Have you probated the will? Has the court appointed you as administrator? An attorney should be able to assist you in navigating the probate process. Also, be aware your father can ask for a years support, which may decrease the estate for everyone else. Also, you will have to review the deed to determine the true ownership of the house after your mother's death. Also, as the executor, you will have to know the priority of what...

    In short, no. Slander is spoken and libel is written. So, it is libel if its false, among other things. If you haven't already written the post, don't do it. It's not worth it. If you've already written it, he can sue you, and the court will decide if the statements were false and satisfies the other elements of defamation.. If he's fighting criminal charges, it is highly unlikely he will sue you at this point. However, if he is found not guilty, there is a clear possibility he may do...

  8. Can I get an unsatisfactory evaluation while on maternity leave?

    It seems silly for the school to give you an unsatisfactory evaluation if the sub is the one who cannot teach for nine months. However, common sense isn't so common. Nevertheless, the school can give you a bad evaluation even if it doesn't make sense. Check with your principal to determine how you will evaluated while you're on leave. Also, check the employee handbook regarding the standards for evaluating employees on leave. Finally, check with other teachers who have been on long term...

    She should consider taking both her cases to another lawyer who has nothing to do with the initial lawyer. Also, advise her to do her own research on medical malpractice attorneys. Good experienced medical malpractice attorneys are harder to find than worker's compensation lawyer, who are a dime a dozen.

    Once you sue your manager, it is likely you will lose your job. If the statements were true, private, you may have a claim for invasion of privacy. For that claim you have to prove the following: (1) he published the information (writing or words) (2) these were private facts (3) the public has no legitimate concern (4) the disclosure caused shame, humiliation or suffering in an ordinary person. The information you provided does not allow me to determine if the publication falls...
