An attorney fee is the cost charged to a client by an attorney for
legal services such as drafting a contract or representing a party in
trial litigation. There are various fee structures an attorney can use
in charging for her services. This includes a fixed fee, billable
hours, a contingent fee, or a combination of fee structures. Retainer
fees may also be associated with legal representation. The most
important way to explain attorney fees to clients is to clearly define
them verbally prior to executing, and then placing them in writing
within, the attorney-client contract.Difficulty:Moderately

Among lawyers, family law attorneys tend to encounter the greatest
number of conflicts of interest. The interests of clients can compete
whether drafting a power of attorney, creating an estate plan,
preparing for a divorce or initiating a guardianship arrangement.
Balancing these competing interests is a skill every new family law
attorney must learn, and mistakes mean not just irritated clients, but
also potential malpractice claims.Difficulty:Moderately
ChallengingInstructions Inform your clients in advance that
potential conflicts may arise. While, for example, married couples who
have come to you to have their wills drafted may seem to have similar
interests, you may later learn info
Entering prison is an enormously frightening experience. Not only are
you faced with the challenge of navigating a new, extremely hostile
environment, but, in most cases, you're tasked with doing it by

A separation agreement is a legal document that is typically filed
with the local court in the region where the people being separated
reside. As a court decree, it enables married people to live apart and
enjoy the same rights as divorced persons, prior to receiving a
divorce decree. While the couple are still legally married, they no
longer live together. Either person may request alimony, child
support, and division of their property. A separation is sometimes
required by some states prior to filing for a
divorce.Difficulty:Moderately ChallengingInstructions Research the
legal information about separation for your state either online or at
the county courthouse. For example, determine
A judgment is an order entered on a court's docket that signifies that
a plaintiff has prevailed in his case against a defendant. Most courts
call the judgment an entry or order of judgment. The entry of judgment
will contain the following information: the names of the plaintiff
and defendant, the docket number, the date judgment was entered, and
the name of the judge who approved the order. Some state courts now
post information on civil cases on the Internet, which generally
includes the name of the parties as well as the docket
number.Difficulty:ModerateInstructions Contact the civil clerk's
office in the state where the judgment was entered. To obtain

The Internet teems with new opportunities for enterprising
people---including criminals. Not only do new crimes exist (computer
hacking, password trafficking), but the Internet also provides new
ways to commit old crimes (cyber stalking). Law enforcement agencies
have adapted to these criminal developments as well. The most notable
of these is the Internet Crime Complaint Center, also known as
"IC3"---a partnership between the Federal Bureau of Investigation
(FBI), the National White Collar Crime Center (NW3C) and the Bureau of
Justice Assistance to receive, develop and refer complaints that will
lead to the arrest of cyber criminals.Difficulty:ModerateInstructions

A notary public is a person invested by the state with special
authority. They witness signatures, administer oaths and, in some
states, perform marriages. Because notaries provide an important legal
service, it's possible that any mistakes made by a notary could have
serious repercussions. This is why all notaries are required to have a
notary bond that ensures their customers will be reimbursed up to the
full amount of the bond.Difficulty:ModerateInstructions Complete
notary training. Most states require first time notaries to undergo
basic training about their powers and responsibilities. This course
will include discussion of the notary bond, including the amount and

The large majority of lawsuits are tried in state court. You may file
suit in federal district court only if the court has jurisdiction over
the subject matter of the lawsuit and the parties involved in the
lawsuit. Federal jurisdiction applies to suits that arise under
federal law---patent infringement or a civil rights matter, for
example. Federal courts also have jurisdiction if you are suing
someone from another state or country. This jurisdiction, based on the
diversity of the parties' citizenship, takes effect only when you are
asking for $75,000 or more in
damages.Difficulty:ChallengingInstructions Things You'll

Having a car insurance policy is a part of the law in most states if
you own a vehicle of any sort. The idea of car insurance is that when
a person gets into an auto accident the insurance company will pay the
damages and help relieve the financial burden placed on you as the
policy holder. Or at least, that's the general idea. Many times
though, an insurance company will refuse to pay, even when it's clear
in the contract that they should. Check Your PolicyThe first step
is to check your car insurance policy. Most people may never read the
fine print of the document, but it's important when you're trying to
find out whether or not you're covered to know exactly what sort of
coverage you
Any state where either you or your spouse is a resident can grant a
divorce. The state might not, however, have jurisdiction to grant you
custody of your child. The basic process of getting an interstate
divorce is not much different from divorces where both spouses are in
the same state, but there are additional considerations and
complications when it comes to division of property and child
custody.Difficulty:ModerateInstructions Check residency
requirements. You don't have to get divorced in the state you were
married. So, whether you or your spouse, or both, have moved, you can
get divorced in the state where you currently live. The only
requirement is that you be a resident of the st
