Was in an abusive Marrage for over a decade and decited to get out.  No job, no money, and nursing injuries recieved at work shortly before.  I had support from friends and my Mother but not the same as my astranged Husband.

Signed up for and hired Pre-Paid Legal.  I signed up for the package that makes it possible to start a business and sell services but I told myself never sell what you don't believe in so I would use the services first.  Sam Barker was the third attorney on this divorce.  I told him everything about the previous attornies and how they botched things up so I was pretty confident that all would go well.

As time went on and on and on I would question things and finely he got mad and threatened to stop helping me if I did not stop asking him questions.  I felt I had no choice due to not being able to pay him since a friend of mine and I parted ways.  I felt victumized again but hoped that the laws in Utah would help me.

At the trial, My Attorney came in to court with no paper or pen of his own and asked for some of mine.  He just let the other side do what ever they wanted without objecting to much.  Things that had nothing to do with divorce were brought up that my attorney did not defend me on when he knew what was going on.  And the first half of the evidence I gave him months before were missing from the book that is made for the judge and apposing  counsel.
3 Weeks later I get a call from Sam Barker and he tells me that I get nothing from marriage, that judge upheld the contempt order and if I dont come up with over 5 thousand dollars I will go to jail for 20 days.  I was numb and called the friend that was supporting me before and told him what had happened and that I couldn't pay him back and that I was going to jail.  Friend told me that the memebership that he had been paying on my behalf was now terminated and that he would take over.

I was told by people to stand up for myself and not take the abuse anymore.  I stood up and did just that and now I am being abused by my attorney and the Utah justice system.  To be honest if I had to do it all again, knowing what I know now?  I would not have signed up for pre-paid legal and I am sure not going to sell it to anyone.

Fraud allowed in Courts by Judges of attorney's

AUTHOR: Tim Wilson - (USA)

Today's system in courts, some Judges and attorney's don't follow there State's Statute of written Laws for the outcome of cases. As you can see by attorney's with holding evidence from court proceedings they (the attorney's) determine the out come in the case before it even comes to trial.

This in it's self is Fraud by controling and withholding the needed evidence submitted by there client, and refusing to bring it up in court to get the information on the transcripts. The main reason this is withheld by attorney's is then it can't be sent to appeals courts!!

Think about it by keeping needed information out of the transcripts, and withholding evidence needed for the cases proof the attorney's control the out come of the case, some times with the Juge already knowing this evidence has been withheld. On the other hand if the Judge dosen't want to allow you the evidence to be submitted then your screwed again. This is known as Fraud On The Court By Officers Of The Court.

But these corrupt people know if your broke already from them dragging out the case for months you can't afford to hire another attorney to represent you. This is what is destroying this nation one familie at a time, while company firms like Pre Paid Legal rip you off for a service that causes you to lose your whole life's work for the greed of others, corrupt attorney's that allow your case to be controlled to the out come the county wants, Not what the Law and Justice should be.

WHY!! You ask, this makes billions for attorney's across the states, and thousands for the county they practice law in from court proceedings that are dragged out for months, as they basically steal what has taken you years of hard work to build, and have for your retirment. All this taken by fruad used in a controled setting by breaking the written laws of a state to do it, known already by many other people of the legal system that has been getting away with this for years. These people know most working American's don't have the money to fight against corruption used against them by state courts or corrupt attorney's.

I can't move on without case file, why won't Prepaid legal give me my case file?

AUTHOR: Lorrie - (USA)

I need my case file from Prepaid legal to find another way to fix my case.  I called a diffrent attorney and when his staff tried to get the case file sent, Prepaid legal would not send it.  I then called Sam Barker's assistant, Kathy, and asked her to please send the information used in trial to the people I was considering to help with appeal. 

Thinking that this was done because Kathy told me she would do it I waited for an answer from diffrent attorney.

Now another week goes by and no answers either way with new people on a disission so I call them and talk to new people's assistant.  She tells me that they won't take my case due to limited information and legal reasons.

I then get the e-mail from the new people giving me detail as to why they won't help me and I find that the information they recieved from prepaid legal was the "findings of facts and conclussions of law", not the evidence used in trial as I asked her to send.

I am at the end of my rope and will more than likely go to jail unless I can find help drafting an appeal and getting it to court before the 5th of March.

Wonder if any suicides have been a result of Pre-Paid Legal help.  I could be the first.
