It really depends on the situation. The failure to tell a person their Miranda rights does not necessarily mean that the case will be dismissed; however, it could mean that any confession or statements made by the person may not be able to come in. Once again, though, it depends on the situation.
The quick answer is that the money taken from your disability money in the name of your child is child support. You do not say if there is a court order in place and, if so, what it says. That information is necessary to say whether the apportionment satisfies any directive from the Court.

After an MRI to evaluate my pituitary gland it was discovered that I had suffered at least two ischemic attacks(strokes) of the... Read more »
For your issue, it sounds like you would need to talk to someone like me who specializes in ERISA short-term and long-term disability claims. If I gather correctly, it sounds like your issue is that Sedgwick has denied the claim because the disability policy does not cover loss of...Read more »

Name was changed and all. DHS keeps taking money out of my brothers paycheck. If he was adopted after my brother signed over his rights, would DHS get a copy sent over once he was adopted to stop taking money out of his checks? And if not, how could they change the child’s last name without being... Read more »
DHS would not automatically receive a copy of the adoption Order. If your brother has a copy, he should take them a copy or contact the caseworker and them that one was entered. However, if your brother was behind on his child support at the time of entry of the Order, he is still responsible for...Read more »

This happened on 11/17/22. I opened a saw up after turning it off to visually inspect a blade. I kneeled down on my knees and the door swung into my back. I reached up and pushed the door back open and I guess my hand hit the button and the saw came back on. As soon as it came on the bottom of my... Read more »
I am very sorry to hear about your terrible injury.
