If you are hiring a Atlanta divorce attorney, you should know that whether you lived together with your current spouse or not before you got married is no longer a factor that should be considered in regards to why you split up. The mean age for men looking into hiring an Atlanta divorce attorney is roughly 30.5, but whether or not you are at this age, an Atlanta law firm can help you out. An Atlanta divorce attorney will make sure that whether you are divorcing for one of the top five reasons which are betrayal, lack of communication, finance problems, loss of interest, and abuse, or another reason, you will get the best help available. Getting divorced is never easy, but hiring an Atlanta divorce attorney can at least make an otherwise difficult process easier to deal with. This is because an Atlanta divorce attorney will know all of the laws that surround the divorce process as well as how to help you get what you feel you should walk away with from the whole process. After you hire your attorney, they will also work hard to keep things at an amicable level so they do not get completely out of hand. An Atlanta divorce attorney might be focused on one singular idea, but Atlanta attorneys can also help you with DUI; something you will be tagged with if you have a BAC that is at least 0,08 percent in the state of Georgia. If an officer pulls you over in the state of GA because they think you might be a DUI case and you refuse to take a breath, urine, or blood test to confirm your BAC level, you could have your license privileges suspended for a year and then, you will really need an Atlanta DUI attorney. If your DUI attorney needs to fight for you in court, they will make sure that they get all of the evidence and facts straight before they do. You can bet that they will go over the police report, witness testimonies, and get your own testimony so that they know what to develop your defense with. They are your best chance of getting the sentence reduced or thrown out. Regardless of whether you are dealing with a divorce or a criminal matter, attorneys are there for you. With their assistance, you will get through the process and come out in one piece. This way, you will not be overly stressed.
The law pertains to everyone, whether or not you understand the terms in which the law is written. This is why you should become familiar with the wide array of law terms which are used currently. Legal terminology can sound like a foreign language to most who did not go to school to study law. There are entire dictionaries published solely for legal terms and they burst at the binding due to the abundance of law terms in existence which span multiple languages. If you do not know law terminology, you are unable to know the law and, therefore, more likely to break it, even if you are unaware you are doing so. There are plenty of online sources to turn to if you wish to begin understanding these elusive law terms. Here, I will outline some of the more important, and commonly used words in the legal system. 1. Acquittal. This is the verdict of a jury which proclaims the defendant of a case not guilty, or that there is insufficient evidence to convict. 2. Affidavit. This is a written or printed statement made under oath, before a court of law. 3. Burden of Proof. One of the regularly used law terms, this is the duty to prove disputed facts in a case. 4. Counsel. This is the educated legal advise given either by a private attorney to a client, or a district attorney to one being represented. 5. De Facto. This is one of the many Latin law terms, and it translates into “in fact.” In fact meaning as a matter of empirical fact and not of law. 6. Habeus Corpus. Another Latin term meaning, “you have the body.” This is a doctrine which states that law enforcement officials are responsible for producing the the prisoner to court. Officials are also responsible for justifying continued confinement. 7. Interrogatories are a series of written questions which are to be written and answered under oath. 8. Plea. This is one of the law terms which pertains to whether the defendant of a criminal case is entering the case claiming to be guilty, or not guilty. 9. A Subpoena is a written command, under the courts authority, which is issued to an individual to appear and give testimony in court on a specific date. 10. A Writ is a written court order which instructs a person to take, or refrain from taking, a given act.
