Cary B. Hall's answer Yes and no. There are very specific procedures for appeals to the Superior Court of Pennsylvania, and she must follow them to get any appellate relief at all. You too must correctly follow all of the appellate procedures.
If oral argument is requested and scheduled -- that's the "hearing" -- then yes, you would show up to that. But there are briefs, the court transcript in the trial court, etc. that must be filed first and long before that.
Cary B. Hall's answer Zero idea, because I know zero about your case -- either substantively or procedurally -- and neither does any other attorney here on Justia. If you have an attorney that assisted you through the adoption process, however, you should pose your question to him/her. If you don't have an attorney, now is a great time to consult one if you feel you're in over your head.
Cary B. Hall's answer If you do it quickly (typically 10 days after the trial court order), you could ask the trial court to reconsider its order. If you did not receive notice, file for reconsideration and say that.
Otherwise, you have 30 days after the order to file an appeal to the Superior Court of Pennsylvania.
Peter N. Munsing's answer 9th Circuit rulings aren't binding on the Third Circuit, but it sounds like you were convicted so you are looking at Superior Court of 3rd Circuit. Why not discuss it with whoever represented you in the criminal case?
Glenn Neiman's answer You should consult with an attorney certified as a specialist in workers compensation law. The attorney can see what has been filed and determine what the situation might be. There would be no charge for an initial consultation.
Cary B. Hall's answer Unfortunately, it's impossible to answer your question without knowing all of the facts of your daughter's case. Presumably it's a dependency case, with Child & Youth involved? Troubling perhaps that her attorney agreed to continue the kids in placement for another 30 days if Children & Youth are simply grasping at straws now -- but if the judge was going to order that anyway, it might've been a strategically tactful decision. Typically, once Children & Youth get their claws into you, they...
Zak Taylor Goldstein's answer No, criminal appeals are all done through e-filing, and they consist mostly of writing briefs to make arguments based on the record. Sometimes there are oral arguments that could require travel, but many appeals do not involve oral argument. You can hire any attorney who is licensed in the jurisdiction.
Peter N. Munsing's answer Hope you told your credit card company the amount is in dispute. Did you have witnesses? Find out what they are claiming are the damages--if it's things like undercarriage likely you didn't cause them.
Peter N. Munsing's answer I believe you have to file the complaint as I read your facts. You need to write a complaint. Suggest you contact the local bar association to see if an attorney will help you. If not, go to your county law library, and look in Dunlap & Hanna's forms for a complaint related to your situation.
Be sure to send a copy by first class mail with all necessary postage to the other person, and note the date on a "certificate of service."
Timothy Belt's answer Whether or not an individual is an employee or a subcontractor is a factual determination that depends on a number of things including the industry. If your business is involved in construction, different rules apply. The primary factor is control. Who sets the schedule. Who assigns the work. Who oversees the work. Whether the alleged employee has the right to come and go as they please among other factors. It is rather complicated, and if you are found to be an employer you could face...
Kathryn Hilbush's answer I assume you're posting the rest of your question later? I can tell you that 50/50 custody is calcluated by overnights so, if your BF doesn't have the children overnight for 7 nights out of every 14, he doesn't have 50/50 custody, no matter how many days he has them without sleeping over. He may be entitled to a reduction in his support if he has them more than 40% of the time, however.
I would talk first to a family coiunselor, as you don't want to get legally heavy as a first option or it's going to make family gatherings more strained then they are, especially with everyone being stressed due to the cancer.
If dad has a concern someone will use the money for their own purposes, he can give you the right to see the account without giving you the withdrawal....
Mark McCulloch's answer I know that waiting is frustrating. But the appellate process grinds along very slowly. I don't know what kind of appeal you have or which court is considering it but generally, if you are appealing a criminal case to the Superior Court, which is the appellate court that hears appeals from final orders in the Court of Common Pleas, you can expect to wait about eight months. If there is oral argument, it will be about eight weeks after oral argument. Again, it's tough waiting, not just for the...
