Where Fraud Victims Need To Go For Help

Unfortunately fraud victims are often the forgotten victims in our justice system. There are often no support groups or counselors for them. Nor are there many places where they can go for help.

Strangely enough the more complex the fraud is and the more money involved, too often, the less likely the victim is to receive to help. This does not mean that help is not available. It simply means that fraud victims are looking for help in the wrong places. In most cases, “getting help” starts with fraud victims helping themselves.

The first place to go for help if you loose a lot of money in any sort of scam is not to the prosecutor or law enforcement, but to an attorney. Find a lawyer who has a lot of experience in the field. In some cases, these attorneys will only charge for expenses and a low retainer. In these cases, they will take the largest part of their fees as a percentage of the settlement.

File such a suit even if the fraudsters are operating outside the US . You should do that because you might be able to get money from them if they return to the US or have property or assets here. Attorney Howard Fensterman sued a group of businessmen in Abu Dhabi who allegedly stole money from a group of Americans trying to organize an insurance company there.

What You Need to Know About Alimony in Alpharetta

Alimony is one of the most misunderstood legal concepts and it can also be a confusing and frustrating addition to your life. If you are getting divorced you could be forced to make alimony payments in Alpharetta. That means part of your salary or business income could go to your ex spouse.

The only way you can have control over the alimony that will pay will be to hire an attorney to look after your interests. If you are not represented by a lawyer the judge and worse your spouse’s attorney will be the ones making the decision. That means you could needlessly loose a large portion of your income to such payments.

It means that you might not be able to take out mortgages or car loans in the future because part of your income is going out in the form of alimony. It also means that you could have a hard time getting business financing that you need or paying your bills. Alimony can be garnished directly from your salary or bank account.

Alimony payments in Alpharetta could substantially reduce your income and force you to make major changes to your lifestyle. Fortunately there are some actions you can take to reduce alimony. You and your attorney can sit down with your spouse and his or her attorney and negotiate a fair rate of payment.

You might even be able to avoid alimony entirely by equitably dividing up assets or making other arrangements. Yet will not know what your rights are if you do not have an attorney advising you.

Something to remember is that neither the judge nor your spouse’s lawyer will look out for your rights in regards to alimony. Only your lawyer will be able to do that for you.

Taking the Hassle and the Guess Work out of Adoptions in Alpharetta

Adoption can either be easy or it can be hard depending on how you do it. Fortunately there is a way to take a lot of the guess work and hassle out of adoptions in Alpharetta, hire a lawyer to handle the paper work. An attorney who is experienced with child custody and adoption cases can make the process faster and simpler.

For example the lawyer will know exactly what paperwork you will need to file and where to file it. He can also when you need to file it and how to file it. Beyond paperwork the attorney can know what objections you might face and how to overcome them. Attorneys can help persons do not meet traditional parental stereotypes including gays, singles and older persons adopt.

They can also help people navigate the legal maze that often surrounds overseas adoptions. In many cases adoption agencies and brokers will not tell you what perils might be standing in your way. Nor is there any guarantee than an agency has done its homework, filled out the right paperwork or met the legal qualifications.

In many cases the well-meaning volunteers at adoption agencies will not do that. Instead they will use one size fits all forms and little else leaving parents to handle the legal problems. It is entirely possible that there could be legal issues surrounding the adoption you are unaware of. You might not find out what they are until a summons server knocks on your door.

Bringing home a child and creating a home for him or her can be difficult enough so new parents may not have the time to take care of all the legal implications as well. In such a case a good lawyer with a lot of experience in adoptions in Alpharetta can be a lifesaver. He or she can take care all of the paperwork and legal details leaving the parents free to concentrate on their child.
