    Answered . In law school there were two different year long classes. In law practice lawyers spend years honing thier skills on topics like these.

    It is confusing because it is extremely complex. Hire a skilled lawyer and rely upon his or her years of schooling, training and expertise. It is not as simple as it looks on TV.
