Lawyer in which country?

For an Australian citizen thinking of moving to the United States, is it better to see an immigration lawyer in Australia, or one in the US, for consultation? This assumes that one is currently in Australia, but travels occasionally to the US. [more inside]

Confusing Lawyerspeak

Law question: Me and the ex are going to court to go over child support, and today I got a copy of a motion filed by his lawyer that said, "Please enter my appearance on behalf of the defendant (his name) on Complaint for Modification filed by Kinetic." I don't have a lawyer to ask. Does this mean my ex isn't going to show up at court?

employment lawyer recommendation in Chapel Hill / Durham?

My Dude has been offered a contract (software/tech/biotech related) with a one-year do-not-compete clause from a contracting agency, which (I think) seeks to preclude his being hired by any of their clients and possibly their clients' clients, which we think could affect his ability to be employed once the 4-6 month contract runs out. The job is supposed to start next week. We're willing to talk to a lawyer, but the one he called today didn't have time and we don't have a good referral. Any suggestions? This is in the NC Triangle (Chapel Hill/Durham, but willing to work by phone or e-mail). [more inside]
