    The right to visitation is generally not directly linked to the order to pay child support. You should not violate the court's order on visitation, but there is nothing wrong with aggressively pursuing payments owed for child support. Here is a link to the CT Child Support Enforcement page. Good luck with your situation. http://www.jud.ct.gov/childsupport/

    Whether the vendor has a right to keep possession of your displays depends on what your agreement (contract) says. A good strategy is to ask the company to identify the legal basis upon which they claim a right to keep possession of your property. If they do not have a valid basis for doing so, it may qualify as an unfair trade practice subjecting them to a possibility of multiple damages and attorneys’ fees. If you do not dispute the invoices, a practical answer may be to pay up, get your...

    The best way to address this is through a will. A will is a good thing to have and this promise ot pay can be addressed. Most lawyers charge a modest fee for prepapring a simple will. You would also need a promissory note which should be recorded as a mortgage on the land records to secure payment. The combination of promissory note, mortgage recorded in the land records and will could be accomplished with relative ease at modest expense. Good luck.

  4. What type of lawyer do I need to hire to get a school bus stop changed to a safer area

    The type of lawyer would be education. The school board likely has jurusdiction over this issue. Follow up with details on a better alternative may be the best approach which can be done without a lawyer. It will be important to learn whether this child's travel time is greater than other children as the school has to balance the needs of all kids as equally and practically as they can. Good luck.

  5. My mom has been using my social security to get cellphone bills under my name and has stopped paying them, can i sue her?

    You can report this to the police as identity theft and can likely get this behavior changed. As a minor, you lack the capacity to sue without a parent or guardian. When you turn 18, you can sue. You can also report this to the credit agencies to protect your credit which is very valuable. A better approach may be to give mom a chance to do right before taking any of these actions. Good luck.

    You may pursue a remedy in small claims court against him. A promise to pay is a contract and failure to pay is a breach. You will need to locate him in order to serve him with the court papers. There are many ways on the internet to locate people. Even if you win in court, collecting the judgment may be a problem. You may also contact the creditor and indicate that the charge is disputed.

    If the name was not trademarked previously you could obtain superior rights to use the name now. A secondary question is whether the name can be trademarked. You should re-examine the divorce orders and see if the ownership of the name was addressed (as it should have been). A lawyer may assist you in sorting this out.

    Send a certified letter to the other driver's insurer with a copy of the police report and witness statement and demand that they authorize the repair. IF you do not get immediate relief, consider calling the CT INsurance Commission. Good Luck. Here is a link to the commission. http://www.ct.gov/cid/site/default.asp
