James G. Ahlberg's answer Unless a court order says otherwise, parents of children have exactly the same rights. In other words his right to parenting time (formerly called custody) is the same as yours. I encourage you to find a lawyer and secure a court order determining when each of you has parenting time.
James G. Ahlberg's answer A workers' compensation insurer is allowed a limited time to review a case and determine whether to accept liability. If the facts are as clear as you say they are Iencourage you to contact a workers' compensation attorney ASAP.
James G. Ahlberg's answer You can show up on your own, though your odds of success should increase if you have an attorney. If your brother has an attorney, you should definitely have one. If you hire an attorney, bring him or her a copy of the will to review when you meet.
William Wolf's answer Without seeing the paperwork you have (or computer entries), it's impossible to say if this is something old which caught up with you or if it's a case where someone used your name and information.
I have seen both happen. You should call a lawyer.
Stephanie Sexauer's answer Heirs don't pay estate taxes; the estate itself might pay estate tax, if the estate exceeds $11,180,000.00 in 2018. The estate may also be subject to income tax if the Decedent earned income that year (the same way a person pays their own income tax each year), or other taxes. Please note, you should consult with an estate planning attorney to clarify this question, as it was vague. This is not legal advice and we have not established an attorney/client relationship.
Stephanie Sexauer's answer I'm sorry to hear about this situation. An easy solution might be to spend the money in the months its received an a Medicaid-eligible purchase, such as a prepaid funeral/burial. In this case, as in all cases, you should connect directly with an elder law attorney and discuss the specifics further. Please note, this is not legal advice and we have not established an attorney/client relationship.
T. J. Jesky's answer It is going to depend on the reason for the accident and if the judge views you license should be suspended.
For example, in Illinois, failure to yield right-of-way is 20 points against you, negligent driving is 10 points. Generally, motorists who commit three or more offenses within 12 months, increase the number of demerit points on their record, will lose their privilege to drive.
T. J. Jesky's answer First, find out how the property is titled in Puerto Rico. Is it in the name of your parents? Perhaps it is a life estate where it is reverted to you and your brother (I doubt this would be the case, but who knows?). If you have the property identification number, you might be able to find this information on-line. Or do you have a copy of the Deed?
Once you find out how the property is titled, if I were you and your brother, I would hire a local Estate Attorney. Tell them you need...
T. J. Jesky's answer There are too many missing parts to your question. If you signed a contract to lease the premises and with option to purchase at the end of the lease, then you would be liable for the term of the lease. That being said, the landlord would need to make a reasonable effort to the lease the premises, mitigate his damages, and if he did the lease the premises you would be off the hook.
If you signed a purchase agreement to purchase the property, and you wanted to walk away and return the...
Gary Kollin's answer Actually, the dual sovereign principal which is before the Supreme Court this year for review allows the federal government to both prosecute and sentence. Under your scenario all three, both states and the federal government, could prosecute and separately sentence.
Often the feds chose not to prosecute and instead the state solely prosecutes
Charles Candiano's answer On your facts, you had a stop sign. The other driver had the Right of Way. You were obligated to Yield the Right of Way. The moment you decided to enter the intersection, you were primarily responsible for the accident.
Ethan White's answer It is not clear what kind of complaint you are trying to file - in court, with an agency (IDHR, EEOC)? Regardless of where you are filing, if there are documents or emails that support your claims, you should reference those in your complaint and attach them if possible. Good luck.
Iskra Panteva's answer It depends on the visa he is applying for. He shouldn’t have problems applying for immigrant visa.
