Q: y son has a personal injury suit he settled but he recently went to jail what do I need to do to act on his behalf

They are ready to have him sign the final paperwork and issue the check but he I'd in jail what do I do to act on his behalf

Mr Scott Marshall Neuman answered on Oct 13, 2016

If the case is settled and the check has been issued then all you have to do is deposit the check in his bank account. If the check was issued to both his lawyer and himself thus requiring a counter signature, then the lawyer can visit your son at the jail to obtain your son's signature.
