Activities: This Association was the genesis for the many changes that have occurred in the way law is practiced. It existed between 1976-1988. The first President was Van O'Steen of Bates & O'Steen v. State Bar of Arizona. This case held that business speech was protected and bar associations could not prevent lawyer advertising.

Q. Question regarding death of executor and my Mom’s estate?
A: Has the final accounting been filed and or approved by the court. If yes, then the funds are identified as belonging to the estate. After you are appointed successor executor, you can request the court to order release of those estate funds to you.
Q. Is Child support received from different father, included as income, when calculating child support owned in Illinois?
A: Click on the Illinois Child Support Estimator on this web page. https://midamericalawoffice.com/illinois-child-support-estimator/ Child support received for other children is not included in gross income.
Q. Discovered more than half of my outbuilding isn't on my property, can I go after the title company for this?
A: Read the title policy. If no survey was done, it probably has an exception for boundary lines. It's possible you have easement. Hard to see why previous owner built on someone else's property unless he owned both parcels.
Q. If i make 16 per hour and the dad make 12 can he pay more child support and what if he never paid child support would
A: Child support is based on income of the parties and how much time the child spends where. Child support normally starts when a court case is filed.
Q. I owe $70,000 in back child support from a hookup I had 35 years ago and now shes taking me to court. What should I do?
A: If you don't have income, you are not eligible for Chapter 13. They are probably getting things lined up to start taking it out of your social security checks.
Q. Probate closed, but I'm still not happy - what do I do to appeal it?
A: In probate there are deadlines for doing things. Also, what the executor or administrator has to do is based on how they were appointed. Assuming you were given an inventory and accounting and you did not object, then you may be out of luck. If there was a hearing on the accounting and the judge ruled against you, then you absolutely have a right to appeal the judge's ruling.
Q. What rights do birth fathers have to prevent the birth mom from adopting the baby to another family?
A: Unless the father consents to the adoption, his rights have to be cut off by proving his unfitness. This could be abandonment, failure to maintain interest or a whole host of other reasons. The usual incentive for cooperation is that he won't have to pay child support.
Q. How in debt do I need to be for it to be a good idea to file for bankruptcy?
A: The test is inability to meet obligations in a timely manner. For some people $5,000.00 is insurmountable debt based on current and projected earnings. For others, $500,000.00 may not be much.
Q. Who oversees polling place violations? The state? County?
A: Usually, both parties can and do have poll watchers.
