Finding good family lawyers could be one challenging job. Your relationship with your lawyer is mainly built on trust, which could be a difficult thing to do. But here are some tips that might be helpful in finding a good family lawyer for you and your family.

1. Ask around. Good feedback from family and friends matter a lot. As mentioned earlier, you should be able to trust your lawyer on matters that are not normally discussed with people outside your own family so when you hear good feedback from other people, make a list of those names and firms. Then it would be easier for you to narrow down your choices.

2. Certificates and Accreditation. It is also important that you get the necessary certifications and accreditation. For family law, in particular, some states issue a certain certification to lawyers and firms ensuring the public that they are legitimately practicing family law. Although these certifications are not required in some states, it still pays to be sure that firms have these documents. When it comes to trusting a family lawyer, it is always best to be safe and sure.

3. Be sure of their specialty. When approaching a lawyer or a law firm, make sure what they specialize about. You would always find confidence in knowing that your lawyer will represent you professionally and that your records are handled with utmost confidentiality as well.

Every end of January, I always think of it as tax time. The deadline for filing the taxes is mid April but I always make sure to file our taxes before due date.

My wife is self-employed. So, I adjusted my tax deduction to cover up for whatever taxes due to her. It is a move that I personally choose so that when it comes to filing taxes, we will pay a lot for federal tax and state tax. So far, we haven't paid federal taxes since my wife started being self-employed. We did pay a little of our State tax. In all the time that I adjusted my withholding tax, we were able to get a little amount of refund from federal taxes every year.

We already filed our taxes this year. We are now awaiting for our federal tax refund. I thought of buying something special for my wife and I am thinking of perhaps looking for a place to get a speedy cash while awaiting for our tax refund. I know there are places that offers quick payday loans and those places are consumer friendly. I have to check on it if I will qualify for their criteria because if I will, I want to get a quick cash so that I can buy something special for my wife right away.

The first thing that we did on my first day in Manila was to find a salon or a barber shop that can cut my hair. My hair needed a trim. We went to SM Sucat and when we got there, the mall was about to open. We were in line to enter the mall.

We went to David's salon and I was their first customer that day. I didn't have to wait at all and I was glad of their fast service.

The price for the haircut was less than $5 including the tip!

One of the most amazing things about having children is being able to provide unique and magical experiences for them. There is no greater joy then to spend special time with them, creating an adventure that can inspire emotions they will carry with them for the rest of their lives. In addition to this, it is just as important that we help them to foster their own creativity by building up their imagination. This can in turn create a stronger, more successful and industrious individual as they grow up into adults. One of the best way parents have started to do this is by redesigning their children’s bedrooms to make them more exciting and fun. Great accessories for accomplishing this can be found with bunk beds.

Twin over full bunk beds have the ability to not just serve as a comfortable place for your children to sleep, but also a way to better organize their belongings. In addition to this, it is possible to add on and create an amazing place for them to play. There are many patterns, accessories, and kits out there that give you the designs necessary to create bunk beds that look like castles, elephants, pirate ships, train stations, airplanes, and even jungle safaris.

These additions are surprisingly inexpensive and the remarkable experiences that can be had from having one of these fun beds have some amazing potential. It also may surprise you to know that not only do these beds have this fun ability, but they are also incredibly flexible. Most of the bunk beds on the market that you are going to find have the ability to reassemble in just about any way you need them to, and they can even come completely apart. This can be a handy feature when you are faced with the challenging situation of needing to have two people sleep but in different areas. Most contemporary bunk beds can come apart through the removal of just a couple screws, and then you have the option of being able to take one bed to another location.

The most important thing to remember is that no mater how you do it, if it is using bunk beds, or simply finding a special place in your own back yard, there needs to be time for your child to build up their own imagination. Let them see how far they can take things, the reward with be tremendous.

One of the best bonding moments that my daughter and I shared was when we went to Bolod Beach, Panglao, Bohol, Philippines.

We had overnight swimming at the beach together with the whole family. We woke up early in the morning and enjoyed an early walk at the beach. It was awesome.

While we were in the Philippines, we stroll the malls and other shops. We found some neat stuff. I found different trophies that are made of wood. I was enchanted with them. We also found some exquisite souvenirs. Needless to say, I picked up some neat souvenirs for family and friends.

We had a great time during our short vacation. It was too bad that it was just too short for me. I had enjoyed the days I had spent in the Philippines. I also enjoyed seeing my daughter spending some quality time with her relatives.

I will surely update my blog now with what happened during our short vacation. I will also update my facebook account so watch out for more photos in there.

Ever since I went to http://www.DirectStarTV.com/ to have my cable set up, I have started watching the show “Toddlers and Tiaras.” The show is so ridiculous, and sometimes I can’t believe I watch it. It is like a car accident, where you do not want look, but you cannot help it. I have never seen moms who are so crazy. They start their kids in pageants when they are as young as six months old. By the time they are three years old, they are wearing tons of make up and fake eyelashes. The older the kids get, the more crazy things their moms make them do. If the girls lose a tooth, they have to wear fake teeth so they will look good in the pageant. The parents also spend tons of money on dresses, hair pieces, and accessories that the kid might wear one time. I have never been around anyone who has been in a pageant, so I think pageants are a little crazy anyway. They are even more crazy when parents are forcing little girls to do pageants.

We have last seen and visited the Tigers (Leo and Una) at the University of North Alabama (UNA) in Florence, Alabama almost 2 year ago. Andrea had fun watching the lions.

TV dinner is my bestfriend when I work late at nights. I just bring with me a box of hungry-man and heat it up at work.

TV dinners are nothing compared to home cooked meal, but for somebody that is hungry, it is really good.
It is getting closer to graduations which should make you start thinking about getting a graduation gift. If you checkout The Source, you can find all kinds of great graduation gifts that your graduate will love. They have items like the Apple iPod, Canon powershot cameras, Sony disc cameras and much more.

Instead of paying a lot of money to companies to install pool heat pumps, you should order it online. This can be one way to save tons of money on your utility bill. In a tough economy, you want to finds ways to save money and having a quality heat pump is one way to save. Heat pumps are very effective in heating your pool. The good thing is that they do not generate heat, but only captures it and then moves it from one place to another.
The beadaholique website is a great place to get biagi beads and other accessories. You can get crystal beads, crystal pearls, crystal fancy stones and even crystal pendants. You can get 14K Gold filled beads along with alphabet beads and bead frames. If you are looking for beads, you should visit the website that specializes in beads. I would love the crystal pearls that provides an elegant shine and look that will always be in style.
We rented two movies this week... How Do You Know and Due Date.

Tuesday night we watched the movie How Do You Know. This is a movie about Star softball player, Lisa, who was just been cut from the national team and scholarly business man, George, has just been indicted from his father's company. Everything from their lives were taken away from them will they able to find romance amidst their problems? This may sound typical romance movie but actually it is not. But then again, this movie is something we won't watch again. We are not that very impressed of this movie despite the fact that Jack Nicholson is in this movie.

Last night, we watched the Due Date. We were kinda looking forward to it because it is a Robert Downey movie. Well, we were kinda disappointed. This movie is about Peter Highman (Robert Downey Jr.)who must get to LA in five days to be at the birth of his firstborn. He was put into a "no-fly" list. Desperate to get home Peter is forced to accept the offer of Ethan Tremblay (Zach Galifianakis) to hitch a ride with him cross-country. The ride became a terrifying and agonizing ride. We really expected a lot of this movie but it turned out to be not very impressive despite having heavy cast.

Anyhow, our movie pics for this week is not really good. Hopefully, we will be able to rent more good movies next week.
