Q: Can I appeal the decision to transfer my structured settlement ?
I was scheduled to receive $75,000 at age 35 and $375,000 at age 45 through a structured settlement that was created after my father passed away. At age 22, about 10 years ago, I sold a portion of my structured settlement for a lump sum of money. I was about 22 at the time. The judge in San Diego County advised me that no further approvals would be made for the remaining sum. The company that wanted to purchase the remaining amount of the structured settlement advised me that the case could be moved to another county ( Riverside County ) in order to seek approval for the remaining amount. Can this be voided or overturned? What type of lawyer should I speak with for a consultation?
A: Your description of your legal issues raises more questions than answers. In order to get an informed legal opinion from an attorney you need to retain an attorney for a consultation. Be thorough with your facts, and bring all relevant documents to the consultation, which will consume at least 1 hour, and perhaps more time.
There is no simple answer to the complexities of agreements, court orders, etc.
