Steven Basche's answer The answer to that seemingly simple question is rather complex. To start, you should be considering setting up a couple of special needs trusts (SNT's). The first trust would be a 3rd party SNT, which is funded by assets owned by a third party (meaning not your child). The second trust is a "1st party" or "self-settled" SNT. This would be funded by assets of your child, which he or she might be entitled to because a relative left money to him or her directly, or by a personal injury...
Steven Basche's answer If you are a beneficiary of the trust, you have the right to ask the probate court to get involved to look at your complaints about how he is handling things. Whether the court will remove him depends on the nature of the problems and probably on the terms of the trust. You should contact an attorney with experience in this area.
Jonathan Sills' answer Yes. If the offense was a Misdemeanor you are eligible to apply for a Pardon three years after the date of conviction. If the offense was a felony you are eligible to apply for a a Pardon five years after the date of conviction.
Jonathan Sills' answer If you are convicted as a second offender, then there is a minimum mandatory 120 day jail sentence that must be imposed. The maximum jail sentence is two years. It is possible to have two DUI convictions and not be sentenced to jail time if the state does not file a Part B information charging you as a repeat offender.
Max Lavit Rosenberg's answer Do not defraud the court. This is a ridiculous question. I am trying to imagine a situation where an attorney will write in a public forum that it would be ok to defraud the court. Again, do not defraud the court.
Max Lavit Rosenberg's answer You can file a personal injury claim. In the alternative you may be able to file under workers compensation. I would be interested in speaking with you further about this matter. I see you are in Bridgeport. I am two minutes away in Stratford and my office handles matters like this one regularly. Please feel free to contact us for further assistance.
Max Lavit Rosenberg's answer You need to hire an attorney with experience in civil litigation and contract law to "light a fire under the contractor" with a demand letter and some phone calls. At worst, you will need the attorney to file a claim against the contractor as well. This is something my office handles regularly. Depending on the amount of deposit, you may wish to file in small claims yourself. You can claim up to five thousand dollars. If you would like more assistance or advice, please feel to contact me....
Jonathan Sills' answer Yes. A conviction for possession of a controlled substance or possession of greater than 1/2 ounce marijuana does not automatically disqualify one from obtaining a concealed carry permit.
Carl Shusterman's answer Yes, but under the sibling category, it would take 13 years to do so, and her son will "age-out" on his 21st birthday. Explore other methods of immigration: employment, investment, lottery, etc.
Carl Shusterman's answer In order to apply for a U visa using Form I-918, Petition for U Nonimmigrant Status, you must meet the following criteria and provide substantial evidence to U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS):
You must have been a victim of a “qualifying criminal activity,” and this crime must have occurred in the United States or violated U.S. law. Indirect and bystander victims are also eligible to apply in certain circumstances. For example, a murder victim obviously cannot...
Carl Shusterman's answer Since you are being sponsored by your US citizen husband, you can adjust your status to permanent resident without leaving the US even though you are no longer in nonimmigrant status.
David Alan Wolf's answer There is only a "case" to pursue if there was some kind of negligence on the fault of the park or an individual assuming that government entities can be sued in the State of Connecticut for simple negligence. Typically, a property owner is not liable per se just because an injury or incident took place on the property. There is a form of insurance called "Medical Payment" insurance that does provide coverage for medical bills even if there was not any fault or negligence on the part of the...
Carl Shusterman's answer If the person who you fell in love with is a US citizen, you can get married now, and he/she can immediately sponsor you for a green card. The process usually takes about one year.
Carl Shusterman's answer Since you updated your name on your I-751, there is no immigration law issue. You need to talk with the SSA and the DMV about how to update your name on your SS card and your drivers license.
