My parents always used to say that the reason they were on the same side of the wall was because they were both lawyers. And they were right. It was because I was in the wrong place.
Lawyers have a pretty bad rep in the media for being a bunch of snooty assholes. In the real world, they are just as likely to be assholes as anyone else, but they’re not going to get much sympathy from the general public.
Lawyers are also a bit more likely to give your father a fair shot. They’re more likely to be a lot more sympathetic if they’re going to be a father. But in the real world if you’re not a father, then you’re going to be a lawyer. And it’s pretty much guaranteed to be more sympathetic if you do things like get out of jail.
But in the real world, lawyers are also human. Ive seen it happen to more than one person who has no interest in being a lawyer. Most of the time they end up being more of a nuisance than anything else. In other words, if youre not going to get a fair shot, you probably dont need a lawyer. But in the real world, its never a given that youll have a fair shot.
I mean, I don’t know how to put it that way, except that Ive thought in the past of these lawyers being a lot more sympathetic if they were doing something for you, and the fact is that sometimes the person who’s been the victim of a crime gets to be a lot more sympathetic with the perpetrators of that crime. Ive seen the same thing happen with others, and I don’t know how to describe it, but Ive been there.
There was also a recent report that a Pennsylvania couple had been charged with paternity fraud after their son was born as a result of the DNA they had been able to collect from the baby. The Pennsylvania couple had been in a legal battle to prove that the baby was their child, but when they finally got the DNA from the baby all they could do was get a warrant from a judge and then wait.
You make a good point. I suppose if the father has never been able to properly prove his paternity, it’s possible that the judge might just throw the case out. But if he or she has been able to prove that the baby is the child of the couple, then the couple is likely to be able to fight the case at a later date.
It’s easy to assume that the DNA won’t prove anything. The fact is that the legal battle involved a lot of money and lawyers. So in most cases, it’s the DNA that will prove a paternity match, since if the father can’t prove he is the father, then it’s likely going to be a long, drawn-out battle.
In a perfect world, it’s best to start with a firm decision between a father and his son. But in the real world, the father will have to prove he is the father in every case. The father will have to prove it’s worth it to the son. Thus, the father isn’t the main suspect in a paternity case. What’s more, it’s always best to have the person who will prove the father is the father in every case.
This is the last part of the game and it’s hard to see the end of the story trailer. But it makes a whole new point to the story trailer: If the father is the father then he has to prove his father is the father. Thus, the father has to prove his father is the father.
