The fall was a result of the pavement walkway being improperly cared for. An EMT and policeman and several people saw the accident/fall. I am questioning whether I need a HiPPA consent filed with the insurance company before I release my records to them.
The first question is why you are working with an insurance company without an attorney? An experienced personal injury attorney would not only be able to get you the best answer but likely get you a better result than you can on your own. The insurance company is represented by an attorney. You...View More

Currently im paying 2000 a month to her and she receives rent from boarder there as well as my son and his girl friend.

A motion for modification is used to request a change in a divorce decree when there are substantial changes in circumstances from when the last orders were put into effect. What you describe may not by a substantial change if the boarder is truly a boarder. You also do not state what the $2000...View More

The answer depends on your divorce decree wording. If college was considered than support of some sort for the adult children may be required.

I have physical custody as of 3/2/14 and was finalized on 11/6/15 but I was unaware that NY child support was still collecting even tho they have no jurisdiction on my daughter nor give any support to her.
Your question depends on the court order in effect during the time in question. While you had physical custody was the court order changed to reflect that? If not then the argument is in favor of support continuing to remain as ordered. New York likely collected the money based on the original...View More

My Boyfriend divorced his ex 4 years ago. He was given the house as she could not afford the mortgage on her own. The mortgage is in her name and his name is quit claimed onto the deed. The divorce decree did state that he was to refinance but due to the market drop the home is not worth what he... View More
Your question is dependent on the terms of the divorce agreement entered into by your boyfriend and his ex-wife.

I filed for modification of custody and visitations. The parties to that case were: I (plaintiff) and my ex-husband (defendant). On January 5th 2015 Stamford Superior Court (in CT) ruled on the case and I was given full sole custody of our daughter and my ex-husband’s visitation schedule was... View More
I assume the ex-wife is acting on her own without an attorney. You can either file a motion to consolidate the Danbury case with the Stamford case and seek a motion to dismiss if her motion is not supported by the rules for modification of the present order. Based on her no longer being married...View More
Mandatory orders go into effect with the filing of the divorce complaint. Based on what you stated you should get permission from the court to sell the house before you enter into any contract to sell the property.
