Dec 31=1 yr case. Lots of details, very little action by public defender-1st issue. Online finding statutes/cases trying to educate myself. 2nd-2 cases all hearings same day same time. Literally didn't even realize 2nd case for 5/6 months.
Sometimes when a parent has done everything they can but a child is still not safe in their home, the Court will find the person guilty of no fault neglect so that the child can receive services. This is especially common when one child needs to be placed outside of the home as the siblings aren't...Read more »
The writer began by saying that appellate courts read a lot of writing and unfortunately they read a lot of poor writing. The article cited some cases in which lawyers tried to win their cases by disparaging the court or the opposition. I remember laughing at the brutal way the Oklahoma Supreme... Read more »
You could check with the Oklahoma Bar Association. The problem is that many state bar associations don't go back that far with their online journals. If they don't have it on their site, you could contact them directly to see if one of the administrators could assist. Another option might be to...Read more »
Default means you were properly notified of the suit having been filed and you failed to appear/file a response, so the Court allowed the filing party to proceed to court without further notice to you and get what they filed for.
If that happened to you, you have 30 days to file a Motion...Read more »
Your circumstances are unfortunate. There is more that is required to provide you with answer to what I gather is a question about appealing your conviction. It is best to contact an attorney who can discuss the specifics of your case.

I suspect you have an appeal de novo, not an appeal. Learn the Landlord Tenant Act and prepare witnesses for Court. Figure out what heresay is, and discern exactly what the Landlord says you breached. Know your Lease. Even if you win, Landlord will file another Detainer. If you really have an...Read more »
How long does clerk of court have to transmit the records of appeal? Was told by clerk they don't have a time limit and they have to find someone to do a transcript? Been going to court from January - June. Finally got an order on September 12, 2019. An appeal was immediately filed to supreme... Read more »
EX has appealed CS order and says he does not need to pay until appeal is decided. My attorney agrees and also that EX won't have to pay arrears if appeal is denied. How can this be true? Can he file appeal after appeal to avoid CS? How am I supposed to care for my son?
Anyone can appeal anything. Doesn't mean they win. If the appeal is from the initial determination/examiners decision they can try to introduce evidence. If it's appealing a referee decision, they are stuck with the record.
My rights were terminated I appealed right away. My appeals lawyer found that the county terminated my rights without ICWA being informed. Lakota Sioux has found children eligible and now are taking over case. What's going to happen.
Unfortunately. I cannot answer in accordance with ABA Ethics Rule 4.2:
In representing a client, a lawyer shall not communicate about the subject of the representation with a person the lawyer knows to be represented by another lawyer in the matter, unless the lawyer has the consent of the...Read more »
You can subscribe to Westlaw or LexisNexus or use "Google Scholar" for free. It will show state and federal decisions but not necessary show you if the decisions have been overturned. I hope this helps.
Hello My name is Ms. Freeland, At the moment I am writing a letter to show cause of why my case should not be dismissed before 11-15-2019. My main concern is finding Assistant writing a brief by December 2, 2019. I am not looking for representation. My case is base on the CPS Indicated child abuse... Read more »
Your question would best be handled by a family law practitioner in Maryland, but if you need a brief by December 2nd, time is of the essence. If you are seeking a brief writer, you could search online for legal brief writers. This is a very narrow area - there are attorneys who hold themselves out...Read more »
I was a minor when he passed and he was not legally married to my mother, but did sign my birth certificate declaring him as my father. My mom told me that he did have life insurance and that I was on it as his beneficiary. I have no idea why I wasn't contacted in regards to this policy, or what... Read more »
It's possible that you have some rights in regards to your father's estate but I don't have enough facts to know for sure. If he died without a Will then you are one of his intestate heirs. However, this is only helpful if he owned assets that needed to go through probate (assets in his name...Read more »
The penalty for voluntary manslaughter (16-3-50) in South Carolina is 2-30 years. The presumption under SC law is that a sentence may be suspended unless expressly states otherwise(16-1-30(B)). In the case of Voluntary Manslaughter it is within the sentencing judges discretion to suspend even the...Read more »
My brother whom my mother ADIMENTALLY expressed he make no decisions for her was appointed. She died intestate. The judge threw out my brothers OSC for procedure in non service, however she is asking me to comply anyway. How do I respond?
I cite such cases and denote that they are on appeal. Opposing counsel is likely to know the disposition of any of the cases you contemplate using anyway; take that as a given. It's best to be forthright. Not mentioning a case's status as being on appeal is not likely to fool anyone, and if it does...Read more »
