on how we agreed to divide our assets?
A divorce is a very stressful and emotional life crisis. A person who is the midst of this type of crisis is not in the proper emotional state to be making critical legal and life changing decisions without the advice of competent legal counsel. The critical decisions required of you, especially at the beginning of the divorce process, can have significant and irreparable consequences in your life, your children's lives, and the lives of any future spouses or children. For many people who have been served with divorce, their most difficult struggle is resisting the natural human tendency to become overly agreeable and cooperative in a noble, but yet foolish attempt to accelerate the end of this very stressful event. In my experience, I have seen and heard only regret come from those who have succumb to this natural tendency. So, it is my advice to you, as it is to any person served with divorce papers (especially those coupled with a waiver of service and other important rights), do everything you can to obtain the resources to hire a competent and attentive attorney to represent you in this process, and do not make any decision or sign any document related to the divorce until you have done so.See question
I am looking at the city of arlington Tx. warrant listings
It would be my best guess that the abbreviations would distinguish between a capias pro fine warrant (CP) and an alias warrant (AW). A capias pro fine warrant would be one issued by the judge from the bench when an individual has failed to satisfy a judgment according to its terms. An alias warrant would be one issued by the court for failing to enter an appearance on the citation at all.See question

Bond amounts are typically not increased after an arraignment unless a bond violation has been alleged by the prosecutor or the bondsman has surrendered on the bond and the prosecutor has requested an increase upon the Judge declaring the bond amount insufficient. However, even in these instances, the insufficient bond amount is usually not increased by that drastic of an amount. You should hire an attorney and request that he or she research the reason(s) for the reported increase. If no reason has been documented in the court's record, I would explore the possiblity of a clerical error. Clerical errors do happen on occasion within our system and this would be my first inclination because a $75k bond on the offense described seems unusually high without an aggravating element.See question

The credibility of any witness is always relevant and can always be attacked. Individuals listed as witnesses in a police report or witness statements that supplement a police report should always be carefully examined through a lens of reliability by both the defense and prosecuting attorney. However, the merits of any case should always be evaluated on the basis of ALL available evidence, and not limited solely to the reliability of a witness. It may be that the material issues of the case can be proven by the government on evidence other than witness testimony. This is why the most important function of a defense lawyer is to conduct a competent and thorough investigation of the facts, including the interviewing of witnesses, in order to effectively assist the client in weighing the risks and benefits of a trial on the merits.See question
My family member has been on a 10yr felony probation for unlawful possession of firearm, in Johnson County, Texas. He has 9months to complete his 10yr probation term. While on probation he had it amended for UA's. He then was arrested in Dallas co...
It is always worth investing in the right attorney to represent you or your loved one in complicated criminal matters, especially in counties as conservative as Johnson County. With respect to an appearance bond, if the Johnson County District Attorney has filed a motion to revoke a regular, post-conviction probation, your family member will not be entitled to an appearance bond pending his revocation hearing. If he was on a deferred adjudication probation, and the Johnson County District Attorney has filed a motion to adjudicate his guilt, then your family member would be entitled to bond, but you can expect it to be set very high by the Judge at the request of the Johnson County District Attorney.
Your family member will have two criminal proceedings pending simultaneously, the revocation or adjudication in Johnson County and the prosecution of the new criminal offenses in Dallas County. It would be in his best interest to have one attorney representing him on both cases, as one can and most likely will have an impact of the other. Johnson County has a reputation for being tough on probation revocations and adjudications. Do understand that the cost of an attorney will be high, mainly because of the seriousness of the charges, and the fact that the attorney will be responsible for both criminal proceedings, of which the revocation or adjudication can be forced to an evidentiary hearing in as little as 20 days.
In my opinion, your attorney should have experience in Johnson County courts.
Good luck and God Bless.See question
co workers have seen my manager kick me
The threshold question of law for establishing a prima facie case for sexual harassment in the context of a hostile work environment would be whether or not the alleged harassment was motivated or "based upon sex" or "personal animosity." Title VII protects against discrimination, not harsh treatment at the work place. Courts will often disallow a plaintiff from turning a personal feud into a sex discrimination case. It is, however, clearly an assault in both a civil and criminal context. To pursue the criminal cause, you would have to report the incident to the police department and have an offense report made. To pursue the civil cause, you would have to consult with a lawyer to evaluate the risks and benefits of suing your employer in civil court.See question

Whether or not you have a legal cause of action against your employer would depend on a number of variables that cannot be ascertained with the information you have provided in this blog. It would NOT be a waste of your time or money to have an employment lawyer sit down with you and perform an insightful and well informed analysis of your situation.See question
He was picked up by sheriff and they took him to hospital for dehydration and CPS was called and is investigating us because of it what do we do
Be very careful in dealing with CPS without legal counsel. CPS is in the business of finding fault in parenting decisions, especially when it comes to disciplining or controlling your child. CPS investigators often use methods of intimidation to exert authority they do not have apart from a court order. An attorney with experience in dealing with CPS can do much to protect your interests and prevent a bad case from getting worse.See question
