    If you settled the case and signed a general release then you can't re-open the matter. The general release would have released all claims you had against the other driver. Unless you were coerced into signing the release or were the victim of fraud then the release will stand and prevent you from re-opening your case. This assumes you settled the bodily injury aspect of your claim and/or signed a general release. If you only resolved the property damage, rental coverage or medpay then you...

    I have worked on a lot of child relocation cases. The one thing they have in common is that they are very hard to resolve because one parent is going to be unhappy with the outcome. The level of analysis you need on a complex issue like this cannot be answered without spending time talking in detail with an experienced attorney. To fully evaluate the relocation the court will look not only at the reason for the relocation but also at the effect the relocation will have on the parent-child...

    Yes, you have a right to know where your kids are and to be involved in all decisions that affect them. If he is unwilling to voluntarily work with you I recommend that you go to court and file a custody application to have the court enter orders as to who can make decisions for the kids, where they live and where they go to school. It sounds like he is escalating matters and not working in a productive co-parenting fashion. Practically speaking, the children need to spend a majority of...

    Assuming you are discussing a Connecticut divorce decree, no. You only have one chance to get alimony and that is at the time of your divorce. If alimony is not awarded as a part of your divorce judgment you cannot go back to court after the judgment and ask for alimony at some point later on. Child support is a different issue. Child support is always modifiable until your children reach the age of majority and are no longer in school. Child suport will be calculated based on both...

    Your options are limited. I assume the reason you cannot sell the house is because you are listing it at a price you need to payoff the mortgage and realtor commission. Since that would exceed the value of the home I can see why you have had little interest. Also, a house on the market for a prolonged period of time is less attractive then a new listing. There are a few options. The first two ideas might be more effective if used together. First, you might want to consider taking the...

    Connecticut does not recognize gross negligence. "While the term gross negligence appears in certain criminal statutes and proceedings, gross negligence has never been recognized in this state as a separate basis of liability in the law of torts". Decker v. Roberts, 125 Conn. 150, 157, 3 A.2d 855 (1939). See also, Hanks v. Powder Ridge Restaurant Corp., 276 Conn. 314, 337, 885 A.2d 734 (2005) ("Connecticut does not recognize degrees of negligence and, consequently, does not recognize the tort...

    The short answer is yes. Attorneys in Connecticut take two oaths, one as an attorney and one as a commissioner of the superior court. The oath as commissioner allows us to take and administer oaths, issue subpoenas and to certify signatures. There is no seal associated with a certification of a signature done by a commissioner of the superior court. As long as the power of attorney you are referring to was witnessed by two independent witnesses and certified by a commissioner of the...

    Support obligations ordered by the family court are not dischargable in bankruptcy. However, I am uncertain how your rights to enforce the support obligation through the mortgage or lien might be effected. You should consult a bankruptcy attorney with experience in this area.

    Without knowing all the facts of the situation, the short answer is likely no. If you are 21 you are an adult and your parents will not be able to have you brought home, unless there has been a separate court proceeding making them your legal guardians after you became an adult. You can however be arrested if you commit an infraction or crime in the process of moving out.
