Q: Personal Injuries of Emotional Distress
I am writing for a case inquiry. I am the assistant of Mr. Wu, who can't speak English.
Mr. Wu has a son George(5 years old) with his ex-wife, Linda, whose custody belongs to Linda. However, Linda prevented father and son from meeting for up to 15 months (Filed a restraining order against Mr. Wu and did not serve Mr. Wu, and the case has been dismissed this year. Now Mr. Wu can contact his son after he file a case of visitation to the family court), which brings mentally extreme damages on Mr. Wu - Yearning has turned into sickness. No contact for such a long time also brings irreparable trauma to the relationship between father and the little son, which also cause spiritual damages on Mr. Wu. Mr. Wu doesn't think it is possible for them to go back to the past.
Mr. Wu wonders if he can file a lawsuit against Linda for compensation related to his emotional damage.
A: I THINK YOU SHOULD POST THIS ON A FAMILY LAW SITE............WE DON'T HANDLE THIS KIND OF MATTER.
HOWEVER, I BELIEVE MOST LAWYERS, IF THEY TOOK THE CASE, WOULD ONLY DO SO ON AN HOURLY..........NOT A CONTINGENCY.
THUS, HE NEEDS TO SET UP AN APPOINTMENT WITH A LOCAL FAMILY LAW ATTORNEY.-
