You could ask your firm directly. It's a fairly straightforward inquiry. If you filed the case, then you already have an index number. If you had the law firm file (which is generally more common), you should be able to determine that an action is pending on your behalf through an index...Read more »
I was slipped an illegal substance in my drink unknowingly. There are witnesses. I later had my urine tested. It tested positive for thc. I have eye witnesses. This has caused me mental anguish and anxiety. Do I have a civil case?

Also, if the only effect is anxiety be aware that courts require proof of mental harm, and some states have more stringent requirments.Contact a member of the NY State Trial...Read more »
My ex has not seen my kids, going on 3 years. He also has not paid a penny in support. He owes about $45,000. He owns a business and does not give himself a paycheck.

Your best course of action is to file a violation petition with the family court. The court can then put him in jail if they find he willfully failed to pay the support order and award you attorney fees for having had to bring the action. In regard to sole custody, it sounds as if you have sole...Read more »
I'm a Healthcare provider in NYS and do not want to be vaccinated. I am being asked to resign. What are the risks/benefits for resignation verses being laid off or terminated? I understand I will not get unemployment
The main benefit of resignation is that you will not have a termination on your record. For example, when applying for new jobs, many job applications will inquire as to whether you've ever been terminated from a previous job. By resigning in lieu of being terminated, you will avoid any...Read more »
No. You would have to submit an offer. The only other way to pay less without submitting an offer is to request a penalty abatement, however, most taxpayers do not qualify for a full penalty abatement. Most people can usually only get penalties abated for the first year. I recommend at least...Read more »
If a properly drafter QDRO is presented to a judge and there is no objection, the judge will sign it. As for the drafting of the QDRO, if the separation agreement is clear on how the retirement assets are to be divided then a QDRO can be drafted.
I probably should have filed when my baby was born but I went through a very long recovery and the courts were closed in NY. I was trying to work out a deal with my ex amicably. Are there any circumstances that would allow NY to award us retroactive child support from birth? My daughter is 8 months... Read more »
Because of Covid and a long recovery from post partum, I wasn’t able to file until recently. My daughter is now 8 months old and we haven’t received any child support from her dad. He was there for the birth of the baby but did not sign the acknowledgement of paternity or birth certificate.

I'm not certain what it was that you signed while hooked up to IVs in the hospital, but I'll address the personal injury aspect of your question, since you posted under that category. If you were injured in the course of your employment, it's possible you could have the basis for a...Read more »

It isn't clear from your post whether you have been dealing directly with the landlord or through a real estate agent/broker. If you were dealing with a broker and have not received a fully executed copy of your lease, you probably don't have a binding contract yet. If you do have a...Read more »
