And this family one of things we liked about this family's story was that this family travels on The Oregon Trail. It started in Independence, Missouri and it went 2,000 miles across the country to the territory of Oregon. And the reason this family wanted to take it was because in order to get people to come to Oregon the Territory of Oregon said We will give you free land. So people traveled travelled this route. It took them months to do it and it is a route.
That now, if you went in a car, would take us, what, 4 days. If we went on a plane, it would take 4 hours. So they would start and go all the way through. And there were places they would stop along the way. There was a rock along the way I think we have a picture of it called Independence Rock. And the people who were in the wagon train would stop and carve their name in the rock, to let people who were coming after them know we made it this far. Going on The Oregon Trail was a very difficult, dangerous.
A Presentation on The Promise What to bring on the Oregon Trail
Comer Jefferson Another thing about going on the trail is that when people were moving, from the South to the West, they would pack their belongings. They would sell their farms and pack their belongings and they would travel on the trail. So do you think you could bring your piano on the trial Students Nooooo Your sofa Students Nooooo Armchair Yes Students Nooooo but people tried. So they packed them in their wagons. And as they traveled on the trail, and over mountains, through rivers, across streams, they had to throw.
Them out along the way. So, you would see someone's piano tossed on the road. You'd see someone's sofa tossed on the road. They would break them up and burn them to start fires so they could stay warm. They had to keep their load as light as possible. Welch Has anyone ever seen the Griffith Park museum, the Gene Autry Museum Lovely! They had a whole room dedicated to things that were left along the trail. ANd they have letters from people who took the trail. it is really quite a lovely place to go. And imagine the.

What is a Minors Counsel Los Angeles Child Custody Attorney David Pisarra Explains
Do you want to know what a Minor's Counsel is and how it can help you in a child custody case My name is David Pisarra, I'm with Mensfamilylaw. We represent fathers in child custody cases all the time. Sometimes we have to have what's called minor's counsel appointed. A minor's counsel is a lawyer appointed by the judge specifically to represent the child's interest. So that they're job is to go in and investigate, the meet with the child and the represent the child's best interests in court. Not necessarily in favor of mom not necessarily in favor of.
Dad. They are there to tell the judge what the child wants. Sometimes that's easier than others. Oftentimes it's easier with a teenager than a three year old. Because three year olds are not very verbal. But the minor's counsel's role is to go into court and explain to the judge as sort of a third party whose job is to be in theory objective but at the same time represent the child's interest. Minor's counsels are appointed by the judge although sometimes they are paid for by the county most of the times these.
Days they are paid for by the parties. The judge will make one party pay most of the minor's counsel fee or all of the minor's counsel fee, depending on the financial circumstances of the parties. then at time of trial the court depending on what the minor's counsel says, can do what's called apportionment. they can apportion, they can divide the fees and whose responsible, so that maybe dad has to, and usually does, has to front the money for the minor's counsel, at time of trial the judge might come back and say well minor's.
Counsel found actually in favor of dad so he has to pay all of it or the minor's counsel might come back and say both parents are good parents we should have a 5050 custody split and the judge will look at it and split the fees because mom's working and dad's working. there are all kinds of factors involved in figuring out whose going to actually pay for minor's counsel but the reality is a judge is going to look at it and say, who can afford it, and then how can they split it if possible. I hope you find that helpful, please feel.
Child Custody Modification When There is a Material Change of Circumstances
Child custody modification when there is a material change of circumstances custody battles make for great fodder for TV and movies but the reality typically involves significantly less drama a court signs off on a custody plan that is created for the kids and both parents share the child or children accordingly if someone wants to make a significant change to a custody agreement as in change primary custody from one parent to the other things can get a little trickier there are essentially two options the first option is for the parent seeking the change to get the other.
Parent to agree to the change this might be unlikely but if the parents do manage to come to a consensus on the change the court is generally going to sign off on it without any issue as long as it appears to be in the best interest of the children the second option requires the parent seeking the change in custody without the others approval to petition the court to make the alteration a custody agreement isn't just going to change on a whim and some courts require a waiting period following the original custody agreement during which no.
Changes can be made unless the parent seeking a change can show some time of imminent danger or harm to the child this waiting period can be as long as two years outside of the waiting period the parent seeking a change will first have to prove that something called a material change in circumstances has occurred a material change in circumstances is a very significant change like one parent losing the ability to care for a child moving away or developing a substance abuse problem if the parent requesting the change.
New Jersey Court Clips The Child Support Hearing Officer Program
Welcome to Court Clips, I'm Judge Glenn Grant, administrative director of the courts. Court Clips allows us to give you a closer look at some of the programs and procedures of the New Jersey Courts. In this episode we're taking a look at the Child Support Hearing Officer Program New Jersey's Supreme Court, in the mid 1980's, created the child support hearing officer program to help judges hear child support cases. Hearing Officer Good Morning, my name is Theresa Andrews. I'm a child support hearing officer, I am not a judge. I will be taking testimony. Based on testimony and whatever documents are presented,.
I will be making a recommendation. Narrator Child support hearing officers make this type of statement before the hearing so all sides understand the hearing officer's role and their rights at the hearing. A child support hearing officer is not a judge. They are lawyers or qualified professionals the state Supreme Court has appointed to hear child support matters. While they may not be judges, they do function in much the same way. They hear testimony and review documents submitted by the parties, and by officials from the probation and family divisions.
Child support hearing officers make a finding of fact and a recommendation based on the testimony and evidence. They forward that recommendation to the judge. If there is a question of paternity, Hearing officers may recommend genetic testing. If, after the test results are in, the named father wants to contest paternity he may ask for a trial before a judge. Once paternity is determined the hearing officer, using guidelines established by the New Jersey Supreme Court, can recommend a child support order. The amount is based on a percentage of the.
Combined incomes of both parents. Hearing officers also deal with custody issues and how that impacts child support orders. Either party may file a motion to reduce, increase or stop child support. Child support hearing officers may also make recommendations to enforce an order for child support or medical coverage if that parent is not complying with the order. If either party disagrees with the recommendation they may appeal. They must tell the hearing officer they want to appeal before leaving the hearing room. A judge will then hear the case and rule on the appeal.
A Presentation on The Promise What is slavery
The thing that we find interesting about slavery when we study it, it was different in the United States than it had been in the past and many people say that is why slavery eventually ended. So, in Ancient Roman times, you know people had slaves. You read about that, right Egyptians had slaves. Everybody did, but back then, slavery happened because two different sides would battle in some war and the dudes that lost had to be the slaves of the people who won. So that is a little bit like during the Superbowl, if the team that lost then.
Had to go and make breakfast for the dudes that won for the rest of their lives. Because that was how it was done and that made it different in the ancient world because slaves were understood to be intelligent people who had skills. You could have your slaves teach your child how to play chess or to read or to write poetry. But when we move over to the new world of what will become the United States, we changed the rules and it becomes You know what We're only going to go to this one other part of the world and all.
The people there, we are going to assume are needing to be slaves. We're going to ship them over here and suddenly we're not going to qualify them as people anymore. They're going to be property and legal papers, so they don't even have status as human beings and when you do that to somebody, you start to believe, clearly, that they can't be as good as you. No more are they someone that I have met in combat and might have beaten me. They're just somebody who is intended to help me for the rest of my life and that.
Destroys our respect for other people. That is called chattel slavery and that's what was practiced in the United States. That was what was practiced by the family that's in this book. So they are property in this man's world and that is why, when they travel and he's made this deal which is kind of interesting why he would make this deal in the first place but when he gets to the other side, he wants to be a good guy, which is really hard to do when you're already a.
BrainDead Teen, Only Capable Of Rolling Eyes And Texting, To Be Euthanized
Last month the Teagart family of Cedar Mill, Oregon set off a firestorm of controversy after petitioning the state for the right to end the life of their 13 year old braindead daughter. Jean Ann Whorton takes us beyond the facts. Caitlin Teagart was a beautiful, lively girl who loved laughing and playing outside, but all that changed at the age of 12. Caitlin slipped into a persistent vegetative state, confining her almost entirely to her bed and Facebook. She doesn't even have basic motor functions any more. We literally have to drag her to the car.
To drive her to school in the morning. She's totally unresponsive when we talk to her. Her eyes just roll back in her head. Caitlin, honey It's your dad. With no hope that their daughter would ever recover, the Teagarts decided to seek legal permission to end Caitlin's life. It is the most difficult decision we've ever had to make but we just keep reminding ourselves that the real Caitlin is already gone. That's just her body texting. But the Teagarts soon found themselves at the center of a heated controversy.
As euthanasia opposition groups mobilized to stop them. These protesters say the groans and exasperated sighs Caitlin sometimes makes prove there is hope for recovery. But the Teagarts' physician, Doctor Kevin DeBacker disagrees. The sounds and movements that Caitlin makes are caused by random synapses firing in what's left of her brain tissue as a response to atmospheric changes, like it being cold in a restaurant, or her mother bursting into her room even though there is a little thing called privacy. Doctor DeBacker believes euthanasia is a humane way to end Caitlin's suffering.
We give her one painless injection, and that's it. Her eyes may flutter a bit or she may murmur Are you for real killing me right now , but then her struggle will finally be over. Back at the Teagart home, the family is already preparing for life without Caitlin. It's hard, but we know we're making the right decision. Her organs can help other children. We can give her eyes to someone who would actually use them to read a book. I have cramps. And I don't even. What would you tell other parents.
I want parents out there to go home tonight and hug their kids and be thankful they don't have such a pisspoor attitude. For Beyond The Facts, I'm Jean Ann Whorton. Three days ago Caitlin's life was legally ended. Caitlin, by the way, was the first Oregon resident to undergo the procedure since 2009 when a dentist had his receptionist euthanized after she was unable to perform any function other than eating all the candy in the waiting room. A recent study from the Centers for Disease Control finds that over 100 million children are being exposed.
A Presentation on The Promise Slavery and the Declaration of Independence
The other thing we wanted to say, briefly, about slavery , which is really important about the United States is that many people don't realize that we had the chance to end slavery at the very beginning the time we signed the Declaration of Independence which you are all studying right Usually, and I will tell you this, my college students sometimes make this confusion. They think that the Declaration set up government, but it didn't. All it was, was a list, a Declaration, of the crimes committed by the King of England which allowed us to break away from him. And.
One of those crimes, in the very original draft of the Declaration that Thomas Jefferson wrote, said taking people from one country and making them slaves in another is a crime and we don't like the King for doing that, so we get to leave. But that's not in the Declaration of Independence today, because when Thomas Jefferson put that in there, all the other Southern territories said No, No! We're not going to sign a piece of paper that says that! and so he took it out. Which means we started the country as.
