If you believe that your child is at risk of being taken out of the country by his other parent, or if this has already happened, there are several things you must and should do immediately. If your child is still in the country, you and your attorney should work on precautionary measures, such as finalizing a specific custody order, which is discussed in more detail below. If your child has already been taken, you should contact local law enforcement immediately and possibly file an application under the Hague Convention on Civil Aspects of International Child Abduction, which is also explained in further detail below.Before your child is takenOftentimes, there are warning signs of the other parent's intentions. Being aware of these warning signs can help prevent a child abduction to a foreign country. Some of the things to look out for include whether the other parent lacks financial or familial ties to this country but has a strong network of family and friends in his or her home country. If he or she has threatened to take your child out of the country or tried to do so in the past, this is a major red flag. Also ask yourself if the other parent needs to be here for financial reasons or if he or she is financially independent, have they applied for a passport for themselves or the child, have they quit their job, sold their home or changed immigration status. These are all things that may point to an imminent departure and perhaps with your child.You should talk to your attorney immediately if you are concerned. Together, you can work on creating a custody order or modify an existing one with certain preventive measures.To be effective, the order should be specific and properly made. Visitation, for example, should outline certain days and times and not state "reasonable visitation" which is too subjective and difficult to enforce. You should also consider adding provisions about supervised visitation, allowing law enforcement to assist with violations of the order and specifically prohibiting certain pick up places such as day care or school.You should file an application under the Hague Convention immediately because if it has been over a year, the other country may decide that the child is already acclimated to the new country and should not be returned.A Hague Convention application is a civil matter, not criminal. An experienced attorney will help you weigh whether or not you should seek criminal charges against the other parent. Some countries will not return a child if the parent will be arrested or prosecuted. So, this is something you need to carefully weigh with your attorney.If your child has been taken to a country that is not part of the Hague Convention, you can try to go through the judicial system of that country to obtain a custody order in that country or have your existing custody order enforced. Of course, your success will depend on the facts and the country involved. While some countries have consistently worked with the U.S. in child abduction cases, other countries are less cooperative, and even resistant.Since local, federal and international laws are in play when a child is abducted and taken to a foreign country, it is highly recommended that you obtain an attorney experienced in not only international family law but child abduction. Such an attorney can guide you through the process and formulate a plan for returning your child safely.To learn more visit, http://www.findgreatlawyers.com/5ChildCustody.htm
Indian Attorneys are people who have gone to law school and who practice the law. They must pass a big exam called the bar exam. This is what makes a student a certified attorney. Sometimes students can have a hard time determining what kind of law they want to practice because there are so many different types.
First, you need to consider all areas of the law. Once you have narrowed your choices down to a three you should start seeking as much information on those choices that you can possibly fund. You will also want to determine what type of firm you want to practice. Maybe you want to do corporate law where you have the opportunity to make partnerships or maybe you want to head out on your own.
Lawyers' Association Exposes Immigration Myths
There are so many areas of the law that some lawyers specialize in a couple areas, while some focus on just one area of the law. Practicing attorneys that do a generalization of many areas of the law are called general practitioners.
They don’t focus on all the areas, but they choose many areas in which to have great knowledge of. Specialists focus on one area. You may have criminal attorneys, tax attorneys, women’s rights attorneys, and so on. A general practitioner can handle most legal issues that are common.
If you are involved in a complex case or case that is worth a lot of money or a serious matter you will want a specialist. In some cases, people will have multiple attorneys so that they can make sure that their case is being handed to the firm’s full capability and so on.
When it comes to the lawyers, you will mostly see what special training they have gotten. Attorneys are just the name for anyone who can represent you in a court of law. They too have to pas a bar and are state certified. Any lawyer can be an attorney. The only thing is that some lawyers do not litigate.
Most people will require professional legal services from a lawyer at some point in their lives. This may be for buying or selling a house, writing a will or making a business contract. Any town or city with a few thousand residents or more will usually have numerous law firms to choose between, so how you decide who to trust in what may be an expensive process?Firstly, a law firm should at least have the standard qualifications for practice in your country and be registered with the relevant regulatory body. For example, in the UK, this is the Solicitors Regulation Authority.Find a specialist lawyer - if your needs are in an unusual or highly specialist field of law, you may require the services of a law firm that specializes in this area. The more niche the legal skills required, the further afield you may need to search for an expert lawyer. For example, if you run an IT company and require assistance with commercial litigation, any small town commercial litigation lawyer may be happy to help you with the case. However, if you widen your search to the nearest large city, you may be able to find one or more commercial lawyers that actually specialize in commercial law for IT. Such specialist skills may demand a higher fee, but the higher level of knowledge within your field could result in a more favourable outcome.Get recommendations - have any of your friends or family required this kind of legal help before? Discuss your needs with those around you unless they are highly personal. Even if a friend or family member has not needed this kind of support before, they may know someone who has. An unbiased recommendation can be much more powerful than what a lawyer says about his or herself.Legal services are often required during stressful times, such as bereavement, moving home or legal disputes, so it is important to choose a lawyer that you are comfortable with to minimize potential for further stress. Following the tips above when choosing between law firms should help.
