Theres a reason why you "buy local" for attorney services, not the least of which is reducing travel time expense.  For this client that would be viewed as material.

Travel expenses are nothing compared to the overall cost of a divorce.

It appears there is no point in commenting on the err with Crash's flawed logic for using a local family law lawyer, unless you think it would have value for your friend. If you do, let me know, or I can PM you the info. Don't see myself posting it just to argue with an idiot, tho I do realize the entertainment value in it.  :smt044

You’re crossing the line here Otis.  Debate the topic please, not Crash’s level of idiocy.

Yes, that deserves a whole 'nother thread!

I dunno, this thread might be a decent place to do it after all.  It seems preferable to all these grindr ads that ncka makes me look at.

ETA: I don't have an opinion on lawyers.  :smt003

Sigh.

You can safely ignore almost all of this.  Hiring out of county attorneys bar none is particularly terrible advice.

Ignorant, or a lawyer? There are only two options.


One of us is one, and the other of us is the other.

In the interest of helping the original poster helping his friend, can you tell us why you think getting a divorce lawyer from a county other than the county where the case is filed, is in anyway a “particularly terrible advice”?  :dontknow:

Because an attorney who knows and has a good reputation with  the judge, knows the local culture, knows the other attorney, and is regularly in that courtroom is far, far more likely to get you a good result at a lower cost than someone who doesn’t have those connections.

Basically, an out of town attorney stands a chance of getting hometowned by a local.

To be clear, most of the rest of what you said is dumb too.  But the out of county attorney advice could actively hurt someone who comes along and reads this and thinks it’s good advice.  It isn’t.

Sorry to hear your friend has to go thru this. Family law lawyering is unlike any other type of lawyering, it emanates from the bowls of the deepest and most satanic cesspool. The corruption in California Superior Court, Family Law Division, will gag a maggot across the street.

(1) Almost no one needs a lawyer for divorce in California. The whole system is set up to be DIY.  Every aspect of how custody is shared, property is divided, and support, if any, is paid is codified (already existing law). The “law” is fair, no one gets over on anyone, everything is divided equally. The same cannot be said for the lawyering that goes on in family court. There is literally no need for lawyers, but get just one lawyer involved and they can fuck that up quick, and they will, because that is how they justify getting paid in a system that does not require their services lawyering.

(2) Hiring a divorce lawyer is done for reasons of convenience and/or emotion. My advice is to think thru/past both of those reasons and NEVER hire a divorce lawyer in the county where the divorce is being heard. NEVER!!! ALWAYS only lawyer up for a divorce with a lawyer from another county.

If your friend is going to go with a lawyer, I very strongly suggest you point them toward a lawyer you know in the South Bay (Santa Clara Co), or at least for a lawyer from another county. Fwiw, filings are done electronically, lawyer could be anywhere in the state but being close enough to drive to their office would be a good thing.

Thanks 3$J, so no ocean enhancement for the surf perch?

No. Ocean enhancement is only for Southern California.

Malibu 2 is a great boat for taking a young kid out.  It is not a great boat for much else.

The spring striper runs on the Central Valley rivers are arguably the last decent money-making fishery for guides these days. A lot of recreational anglers also take part in the fishery. Strong striper runs generate revenue among the local motels, tackle shops, restaurants, etc. I see this slot limit proposal as the guides' effort to help protect their incomes. After all, what else would clients be willing to pay to fish for in the spring? Shad?

Slot limit makes sense to me. The CV rivers' water and habitat quality for Chinook is trash. It's so bad, that the best "returns" now come from trucking the salmon smolts all the way to the Golden Gate Bridge for release. The further you truck the smolts from their natal rivers, the higher the stray rates of the returning adults, hence the crummy adult salmon returns to the rivers.

Taking current climate and water use/storage trends into account, imagine what those rivers and their fisheries are going to look like in 2050. Do you see them as bastions of robust Chinook runs akin to those from days of old? I don't. But I can envision them supporting a decent striper fishery...maybe even a pretty good one. If we want our future generations to have some kind of fishery in those rivers at all, it might be worth proactively managing them according to what the habitat is likely to support decades from now.

Not to mention, topwater stripers are fun as Hell  :smt007.

This is what giving up looks like.

I mean, you might well be right and maybe a striper fishery is more certain than a robust salmonid supporting ecosystem. 

I'm not there yet.

I'm gonna go lock my doors real quick.

Locking your doors won’t do any good, it will just impersonate your favorite person or a Girl Scout selling thin mints, you’ll open the door, game over.

Why are we protecting striped bass at all?  They are salmon smolt killing machines.

This is really, really stupid.

No, they didn't do what you're accusing them of doing.  When you purchased the house, the title company should have told you the house had been modified without a permit for the work, or the home inspector you (should have) hired should have warned you of the two code violations - the garage and the extra bedroom.

No, and yes.

Title insurance only covers legal title to land.  There is a blanket exception for unpermitted work and they don't look for it, and don't insure it.

The home inspector should have found it.  I'm not at all surprised that the home inspector did not mention it.  Perhaps that inspector also carves out unpermitted work because its so common to find unpermitted work in county coastal jurisdictions in California.  Most counties are just more lax about it.

Gold up 2% silver up 6.6% today.

That’s a response to the fed in reading rates by 0.75% and the GRP numbers proving the recession both coming out yesterday.

No, the gold/silver ratio is not within historical norms. The historical norm has gold 11 to 15 times the price of silver. The current ratio is 94 times the cost of silver, hence the ratio generating attention.

It was only 11-15 when it wasn't allowed to float.  The zero hedge article actually explains that pretty well.  A look at the graph shows it within historical norms, especially historical norms entering a recession.  Note each time we go through the cycle (since float) the ratio gets nominally larger.  So either silver is too abundant for industrial conditions (ie. a cheaper substitute is available) or gold is overpriced.  Or maybe both.

Like I said, if you want to play in highly volatile derivative markets then go long on the ratio.  It's probably a good investment, especially considering that tptb are actively trying to convince people that we are not in a recession going so far as to change the definition of what is a recession. 

Of course ymmv and you could lose your shirt.

But this isn't unprecedented, and its within what I'd expect to see.  But, if I was long on gold like the Russians at zero hedge I'd be trying to convince people to buy it too.  Gotta pump it to dump it so you can buy that London real estate to stay out of rubles and avoid losing all your wealth because Putin is burning it all down.  Doesn't make it wrong, but you do have to consider the source.
