Women Given Equal Rights to Become the Queen of England

crownpic1-150x150Female children in England now have an equal chance to become the Head of State. If newlyweds Prince William and Kate Middleton have a daughter, she can now become Queen. This is true even if she has younger brothers. The countries in the English Commonwealth have recently agreed to change the century-old rules concerning who can become the Head of State in England. In the past, ascension to the throne always took sons over daughters. But now if William and Kate, Dutchess of Cambridge, have a daughter she would be beat out her younger brothers to becoming the Head of State. She would become Queen! Before these changes can become fully effective they must be approved by the legislators of all sixteen nations in the English Commonwealth where Queen Elizabeth is considered the Head of State.

There has been speculation that Kate Middleton will be starting a family soon. This rule change has been discussed for the purpose of dealing with Kate’s children, especially if the oldest child is a daughter.

Hugo Vicors, an expert on the Royal Family, recently stated “you shouldn’t muck around too much with the Constitution, but it is a good idea to change this at this time. It’s much better to have it sorted out before any babies come along.” Although the new rule applies to future heirs to the throne, it does not impact on the current lines of succession. The current prime minister, David Cameron is a big proponent of these changes. He feels it’s important to give women equality regarding this issue.

Women’s Rights and Men’s Rights

Both men and women have equal rights involving divorces and family court issues. They are both entitled to protect their rights with regard to issues of child custody, orders of protection, visitation (parenting time), child support, spousal maintenance (alimony), child abuse, child neglect proceedings, and issues involving divorce and separation agreements. The attorneys at the Law Offices of Schlissel DeCorpo have more than 100 years of combined legal experience in dealing with these issues. Should you have a matrimonial or family law issue, call us we can help you.

Hiring the Right Divorce Lawyer

divorce-150x1501

Divorces are very personal legal proceedings. You need a divorce lawyer who you have faith in, who is reliable and who you can trust. How do you decide that you have the right lawyer to represent you? Here are some suggestions:

1) Is your attorney familiar with the local court practices and procedures? Things are handled differently in different jurisdictions. The courts in New York City and Long Island differ on how they handle some aspects of matrimonial and family law issues. Is your attorney aware of these practices?

2) How do you feel about your lawyer? You should trust your instincts when you hire a lawyer. Are you comfortable with him or her? Is he or she dealing with your issues in a manner that makes you feel secure?

3) Does your attorney return your calls. Litigating divorce and family court issues can be aggravating and nerve racking. When you call your attorney, does he or she return your calls within 24 hours? Are your lawyers paying attention to your case?

Is Your Attorney Compassionate?

The law and the courts are cold. You may not always obtain the result you desire. Your lawyer should have compassion for your personal circumstances. You should be treated as a person with personal problems, not as a case file!

Professionalism and Interaction with Courts and other Attorneys

Your attorney should act in a professional, competent manner. He or she should do his or her best to deal with judges and opposing counsel. Sometimes antagonistic and difficult situations arise and your attorney must be very aggressive. Aggressive litigating may be necessary to get your point across. There are other times your attorney should be taking a negotiating posture to try and obtain the best possible result for you.
