Q: 

Help..delay in Estate Closing .

A:  1. The executrix has a screw loose to pay out of her personal pocket for the estate's bills--that is certifiably an uncool move--but if the executor has unwisely made any such side agreement she may have cooked her own stew! 2. Its not good form for you to communitate directly with judge. 3. You are not the lawyers client and the lawyer acts on behalf of client. That said, if you get paperwork that is full of apparent gaps or math errors etc I think you want to paper the heck out of the executrix that the forms she provided contain apparent errors and omissions, and you'd be delighted to sign the docuements once she gets the errors and ommissions fixed or she confirms to me in writing that the forms are in fact correct in all...

Q: 

oral agreement to delay hearing with defense atty- rescind?

A:  "z" <z...y.x.invalid> wrote in message news:d4K4e.1948$qD2.1061...newssvr14.news.prodigy.co m...A defense attorney calls up a pro se plaintiff and asks for a 2 week delay in a hearing. (ordinarily defense gets 30 days to respond; defense attorney is asking for 30 days plus about 12 more days.) After some sweet talk, the plaintiff reluctantly agrees. Later he has second thoughts since the 2 week delay gives the defense a preparation edge and a strategic advantage in addition to the considerable strategic advantages of having a real attorney and infinite money (the defendants in this particular case being a state agency and...

Q: 

A ? for those who have had support modified based on amount of time spent with child

A:  Anyone who can help? sbaldwin thanks for responding to my last post. I wish I could help you here. I have an almost identical situation and have a hearing on May 5th to hopefully get a reduction in the support order. I have my sons every Wednesday and every other weekend. I am also supposed to have them for "additional" time during the week. The additional time clause turned out to be no additional time at all however. My ex won''t let me make plans for that time. She says that I can see the boys if I happen to be in the area but will only receive information from me through her attorney. Of coarse this means that I get no additional time during the week. As I am a teacher and have the Summer off, I have the boys for six exclusive...

Q: 

attorney filed deed with wrong name on it. Help

A:  #1--laymans view--a good attorney is good at stall tactics--its part of the game! Like it or not--and a good attorney is also godd at keeping the other sides stalls to a dull roar. But 2 .5 months is mere childs play for delay! #2 I think its very expensive and will add to delay to change legal horses and you will take more steps backwards. #3 I sugggest as a layman you rethink improving your working relationship with this counsel this far into the game. "Can I sell the house and hold all of the money in escrow until the court hears the case?" You didn't say that the partner's name is no longer on the deed. If it's on the deed and unless...

Q: 

What happens if jailers steal an attorney's case file?

A:  Kscoinhutch wrote: What happens in this situation? What would you lawyers do if this happened to you? A man is in a county jail awaiting trial on a low-level felony. He is also charged with harrassing a policemans''s daughter. One day he is taken to court for a pre-trial hearing. While in court, his court-appointed attorney allows him to "borrow" several pages from the lawyer''s case file to take back to the jail and read in order to assist the lawyer, with strict instructions to return the papers to the lawyer at the next court

Q: 

negative review to an attorney on internet

A:  No, it's not criminal. But it was obviously foolish to post derogatory remarks on a public forum. The proper method would have been to file a complaint with the state Bar that licenses lawyers (and you can still do that if you want to). That would have been kept confidential, even if the lawyer had been subject to disciplinary actions. There's really no way you can "deal" with her at this point because she hasn't demanded anything of you. Except maybe to imply that you don't do any more posting on the internet. "I hired a attorney to attend dog court hearing." Where in CA do they have "dog

Q: 

Judge''s conduct scares even attorneys

A:  I don't know if this will be of any real help to you but check out the following links: http://www.scjc.state.ny.us/ http://www.judgewatch.org/judicial-discipline-nys.htm Your post is INCREDIBLY confusing. First you mention that it's a family court hearing, then you refer to a prosecuting attorney (implying a criminal matter). You say no attorneys will appear before this judge, but you mention a whole bunch of attorneys who apparently are appearing before the judge. You refer to charges against your parents and the judge's daughter marrying your cousin, but you don't explain what that has to do with anything. You mention your religion without...

Q: 

attorney fees deductible in labor disputes

A:  The fees you paid your own attorney and the court fees may be deductible as miscellenous itemized deduction as an expense you incurred to produce taxable income. Without knowing why you had to pay the opposing attorney''s fees, I cannot comment on that. I suggest you consult a tax attorney for advice concerning the extent to which you can deduct these costs and the proper year in which the deduction must be taken....

Q: 

How would I get a motion for continuance due to a medical emergency?

A:  A motion for extension of time (continuance) may be granted in the court''s discretion to allow a party more time to act in a litigation matter. The court will often grant the motion when the moving party can show a justifiable reason for the delay and is not seeking a delay merely for the purpose of delay or for an improper or harassing motive. Requiring additional time to obtain evidence, witnesses, or assistance of counsel is generally considered a proper motive. The court is more likely to grant an extension when there hasn''t been a previous request(s) for additional time. Sometimes a continuance may be...
