  1. What is the procedure in state of CT for filing for legal separation?

    Basically, a legal separation is when a married couple makes a binding agreement about how to manage their affairs and assets while living apart, but do not get a formal divorce. The grounds and procedure for a legal separation are the same as those for divorce. The important thing to remember is that with a legal separation you are still legally married. You and your spouse must still agree on custody, property settlement, support and/or alimony, just as in a divorce. Legally separated...

  2. I bought a software program where I can create my own will. What is my next step?

    A living will and a will are two separate documents. Your will, as you know, is a document that indicates how you want your property disposed of at your death. The living will is a document that you may have heard referred to as an Advanced Health Care Directive or a DNR. It let's your doctor and your family know what kind of care you would like to have if you become unable to make medical decisions. It can indicate, for example, that you do not want to be resuscitated if it is determined...

    Your best bet would be to contact the clerk's office. Small Claims matters can get a little backlogged. The denied designation probably means that the tenants are denying your claim. Check the CT Judicial Website http://www.jud.ct.gov/faq/smallclaims.html or visit the court service center. Many local CT courthouses have them.

    I agree with the previous attorneys. For many crimes, there are diversionary programs available that can may allow you to avoid jail time. If he was on probation and already had convictions, chances are he would not be eligible for them. The outcome of his case can depend on many factors including criminal record, victim input and whether or not restitution was made for the property damage, stolen property, etc. You can look up your dad's case on the judicial website and it will tell you...

    I agree with the previous attorneys. Because he did not show up for court, he was charged with a Failure to Appear. He may want to consider contacting the court to see if it is not too late to vacate the warrant for his arrest. If too much time has passed, it may be too late. Either way, he should try to resolve this immediately.

    I don't see why you wouldn't be able to wear such a t-shirt. Of course, some judges have certain rules when it comes to decorum in the court room. You should check with the court house to be sure. Your best course of action would probably be just to dress respectfully for the hearing. I never understood why some defendants show up to court wearing t-shirts depicting marijuana or similar images. If you are arrested for a gun related crime, you should probably reconsider the Scarface t-...

  7. Is hitting a fellow employee a crime in WA state

    1 lawyer answer

    It depends. Are you a boxer? It is usually safe to say that hitting a fellow employee is a crime in any state. For example, if you poke the guy with your finger to make a point, it can be considered battery. As with many things in law, the best answer is "it depends". For example, did you have consent to whack the guy. Were you defending yourself? Were you defending someone else? Remember, words alone, no matter how insulting or provocative, do not justify an assault or...

    I would suggest contacting the secretary of state where the company was located. The company may have been a railway car builder. If you don't know the state, might I suggest New York. If it helps, it is my understanding that the patent for the Anti Friction Journal Box (Patent 2360737) is held by General Motors Corp. That doesn't necessarily mean that it is the company you are looking for.

    It is my understanding that Washington State allows for the equitable distribution of property. I would suggest contacting a licensed Washington State attorney for proper legal advice. You might find that you are entitled to a portion of the marital property, pension benefits, alimony, child support,etc.
