Postby eisokey » 01 May 2009, 11:22

Hi there,

I don't know, if somebody could help me, but I hope someone may have an idea how to solve my probs.
Im a 27 ys old foreign mother of a Taiwanese child and im fighting now for the custody child. After nearly 2 years now and after the first meeting at the court, i may have a realistic chance for success. But now I need to hire a lawyer for continue the proceeding.

Thats y im urgently searching for a female lawyer in Kaohsiung, hopefully also mother and having experiences with such cases. My mainprobs is, I need an attorney who knows how to speak English and who has time to adopt my case immediately, because of next appointments.

Anyway thank you all for reading this lines and your help.

Why a female and why a mother? Surely you want the BEST lawyer your money can buy. Seems odd to limit yourself in this way.

Sandman,

The OP is not OJ Simpson, i.e. does not need the "best lawyer money can buy" to convince the judge and jury of the impossible. She is simply looking for an effective lawyer who can, hopefully, empathise with her position (as you must know, empathy/ sympathy is a rare quality here) and with whom she can communicate with effectively.

Perhaps, as someone who presumably has been here a long time and with vast experience, if you are going to make a post on this topic then your energy might better be spent PM'ing her with the details of a lawyer that you can recommend ? She is obviously someone in a difficult situation and just needs help and positive suggestions.

I'm not remotely interested in this woman. I am interested in why, given that she needs legal help in a hurry, she's still stipulating irrelevant conditions upon who she's prepared to hire, that's all.
She has already stated VERY clearly that she's NOT interested only in an effective lawyer. She wants a mother and a female.
I can't PM her because the two very effective lawyers I know personally are male. :roll:

More intelligent. :bow:

Before you lovingly craft your PM, make like any writer and consider your audience. With all the information at your disposal, is there any possibility that the recipient will open it? Would your time be better employed?

So given that you are not remotely interested in this woman, and clearly are not in a position to help her, what are your motives for making the post ?!

You say that she is stipulating irrelevant conditions, well clearly they are relevant to her (whether you agree with it or not). We can safely say that she did not make the original post to have the relevancy of her assumptions commented on. She is not asking for a lecture in logic, she just wants help and I am sure that you know that very well :wink:

I'm interested in the whys and wherefores. Why would someone be desperate enough to post to a bunch of strangers on the internet, yet not so desperate that she'd accept a male attorney? Not an earth-shattering interest, I admit. More mild curiosity, really. Whatever. It's why they're called "discussion boards," y'know? I don't REALLY know where to find sour cream, either, but that doesn't stop me whiling away the boring desk-bound working hours posting about it.
Just like you haven't answered my questions, either, or hers, for that matter, yet here you post, willy-nilly.
I don't really care if she responds or not, either. Or rudely, or whatever. It's the posting that's the thing. The responses are secondary, unless they're from my friends. Because for me, that's what the flob's all about.

It's clear that the OP didn't make her original post in order to put her comments up for "discussion", or to be more precise- to be put down.

You say that for you the "posting is the thing", which sounds kind of existentialist. Well now you have justified your existence, even though we already knew you exist :wink:

Sure, everybody's entitled to hold their views and vent their frustrations if only purely for the sake of venting them and Forumosa is a good a place as any for that, but the divorce subforum is not the right place for that, don't you agree ? People, like myself, have put postings on there because they find themselves in genuinely difficult and desperate situations, and maybe have tried other lawyers already without success.

I have actually PM'd the OP trying to provide some assistance- surely a better use of time and energy .......

Its a goddamn discussion board. And I most certainly did not "put her down", either. I simply asked why she was limiting herself to a much smaller cache of lawyers than she'd otherwise have at her disposal.
But thanks for putting your words in my mouth. They taste quite nice.

Well there we must agree to differ. on whether your comments were in fact a put down (to me, a comment which does not contain any positive suggestion, for instance "a male lawyer would be just as effective in your situation as a female lawyer, I will be happy to recommend you one that I know ....." is a good candidate for a put-down), and on the function of this subforum.

Up to other members and the moderator to have their say on that, I guess .......
