Children’s Involvement in the Legal Process

Children’s Involvement in the Legal Process When children witness violent or abusive behaviour in their home, they are certainly affected by it; however, from a legal standpoint, it is extremely rare for a child to be called in as a witness in family court. Typically, family court judges dealing with divorce custody issues will let a parent testify about what a child said or did at the time an abusive act occurred, even though technically, the testimony of this nature is categorized as “hearsay” and is therefore inadmissible. Most family court judges make protecting a child involved in a divorce custody case their priority, which is why a parent testifying on behalf of their child is allowed. Read the following article about child witnesses.

If a judge presiding over a divorce custody case decides that your child should, in fact, be allowed to testify, an attorney or guardian ad litem will be appointed to your child. (The term “ad litum” refers to someone appointed by the court to act on behalf of another party who is deemed incapable of representing themselves, such as children. This is discussed in greater detail in Chapter 9.) Often, the court takes child protection during …

Ways The Id Theft Deterrence Act Can Aid Victims Of Fraudulent Activity

Ways The Id Theft Deterrence Act Can Aid Victims Of Fraudulent Activity

According to studies done by Gartner Inc only one in seven hundred people who commit identity theft are ever caught and brought to justice. In Oregon recently it seems like they may have caught the one.

The Associated Press reported that one identity thief showed up at a local bank in order to cash another fraudulent check. What makes this story so bizarre is the thief was caught by the person he had been victimizing. It seems that person was there at the exact time disputing the bogus charges showing up on his financial statement.

Unfortunately for most victims of identity theft the chances of coming face to face with the actual thief are slim and at best and non-existent at worst. Identity theft and fraud affects eight to nine million people every single year. While certain forms of identity theft like check fraud are on the decline the same cannot be said for other types like phishing websites which have seen a sharp increase. In fact technological advances have made identity fraud that much easier.

For instance cell phone users may be feeling the pinch thanks to …

Redundancy and Restructuring Planning

Redundancy and Restructuring Planning

In forming a restructure proposal and deciding whether to implement a restructure, employers will need to:

Bosses will also need to be prepared to produce documentary evidence setting out the rationale behind a redundancy proposal and their consideration of any alternative submissions provided by workers, including evidence as to why they rejected them in favour of the final decision.

The express necessity of having a robust and justifiable proposal has arisen because of the recent decision of the Employment in Totara Hills Farm v Davidson, where the Chief Judge confirmed that the Court can assess the business decision behind a redundancy to determine whether the decision, and how it was reached, were what a fair and reasonable manager could have done in all the relevant circumstances.

Employers are reminded that where a redundancy is contemplated one of the primary steps is to consult the employees whom may be affected.

(a) Consultation requires more than mere prior notification and must be allowed sufficient time. It is to be a reality, not a charade. Consultation is never to be treated perfunctorily or as a mere formality.

(b) As consultation must precede change, a proposal must not be acted …

Overview of Broken Bones Injuries

Overview of Broken Bones Injuries

A New York broken bone lawyer can often help a victim gain compensation. Few injuries occur as frequently, and in nearly every type of accident as bone fractures, or broken bones. From vehicle accidents to falls to explosions and dog bites, painful breaks pervade the spectrum.

General overview

As common as they are, broken bone injuries can be debilitating. A victim can be left unable to work, drive, or engage in the other routine activities. In a workplace, other employees may have to take on an extra load to compensate for a long-term absence. At home, children may have no one to drive them to school.

Some broken bone injuries occur because of diseases that weaken them. Osteoporosis deteriorates minerals and proteins in bones, causing them to become brittle and more susceptible to breaks. This does not mean, however, that a victim of, say, a bicycle accident who suffers a broken bone will be unable to win a claim. The disease may deteriorate the bone, but the accident broke it. More often, however, otherwise healthy bones are damaged or broken when an accident occurs.

Types of bone injuries

From the outset it should be understood …

Copyright And Trademark

Copyright And Trademark

In general, lots of people confuse the words “Copyright” and “Trademark”. They do not know how to copyright or rather, trademark their logo, blogs or business names. The word copyright has been used alongside trademark to make things a little easier to understand.

Copyright is not the same as trademark. According to the United States Copyright Office, a copyright provides protection against plagiarism and exists from the minute a composition is created. It provides protection to tangible works in music, art, design, literature, drama or film; copyright authorizes the author of an original, tangible form of work to be the legal owner of his creation. Though copyright exists as soon as an idea takes up a tangible form, it is still preferred to register the work with the United States Copyright Office which asserts the owner’s legal authority by making it public to discourage the infringement of copyright. Some people also publish copyrights on their work for further security of their possession. Registering a document is not very expensive and costs around $35 – $85 but renewal of the copyright prior to its expiry date, getting copies of copyright facts and searching copyright records is more expensive.…
