The Attorney General of a state is said state's highest-ranking law enforcement official, or statewide prosecuting attorney. In some states, the "Attorney General" is elec…ted, and in some it's an appointment by the Governor. Each county in a state, though, usually has its own -- usually elected -- county prosecutor (sometimes called the "district attorney"); and said county prosecutor is the highest-ranking law enforcement official in said county. The local county prosecutor (or "district attorney") is never called the county's "Attorney General." The Attorney General of the United States is its highest-ranking law enforcement official in the United States, and is its federal prosecutor. S/he also runs the US Department of Justice. The US Attorney General is a cabinet-level position, appointed by the President of the United States. State Attorney Generals prosecute statewide criminal and civil cases. There is usually an entire staff of "deputy" or "assistant" attorney general lawyers who work for the either gubernatorially-appointed or elected-by-the-people state Attorney General. His/her office may also review laws that either have been passed, or are about to be passed, to determine if they're constitutional. S/he may also help with law enforcement issues, or appeals of rulings against the state. Basically, the Attorney General's office is the state's lawyer... for almost all things, both civil and criminal. The US Attorney General oversees the federal US Attorney's office; and the US Attorney's office (usually several of which are located in each state) prosecutes federal crimes across the nation. The US Attorney is also considered the United State's lawyer, so to speak; and so it handles cases both criminal and civil at the federal level. It also reviews laws for constitutionality, maybe even helps draft laws. It does pretty much everything that any lawyer would do for his/her client, except that the US Attorney General's client is the entire United States federal government!
His name is Greg Abbott. He is the state's chief law enforcement officer

In the US, in many states, the answer is that the SOL is 2 years from the date the client knows or reasonably should have known that the lawyer committed malpractice. Th…is is different from the usual 2 year statute of limitations as in a car accident where the SOL begins to run from the date of the event. With legal and medical malpractice sometimes the effects of the malpractice are not felt or discovered until more than 2 years from the date the malpractice occurred. It would be unfair to persons if in a situation like that, the 2 year period begins to run from the date the malpractice took place. Think about buying a house and the lawyer makes a mistake in reviewing the title. It could take years before a mistatke like that becomes known. So as soon as it is known or as soon as the person reasonably should have known that the lawyer made the mistake, the usual 2 year statute begins ticking.
It can have different meanings depending on the jurisdiction. In some places, it means that the parent obliged to pay child support has no discernible means of income so minim…um wage is implied and used for child support calculation.
Depending on the age and state statues in your area. However in most cases a child CANNOT sue for child support. The child support claim has to be filed by the custodial paren…t.
