    While you can bring a suit in Ohio since both parties live there, substantive Florida law would apply, which would include the statute of limitations. Consult with a Florida personal injury attorney asap. Don't take the insurance company's word for it. Good luck.

    My boyfriend and I have been co-habitating for 7 years, and we have a 5 yr old child. He has refused to marry me, as it "made no financial sense to him". He is emotionally abusive to me. He threatens me almost daily to throw me out on the street ...

    Tanya’s Answer

    First of all, if you are feeling unsafe, there are many emergency woman and child shelters in Connecticut, so please look after the safety and welfare of you and your child first. Next, should the baby's father begin custody proceedings, a guardian ad litem will be appointed for your child (the cost of which you and the father will split, FYI). In custody cases, the question is what is in the best interest of the child. Finally, if a custody proceeding is initiated, there may be an attorney who will handle the case pro bono or for a reduced fee. Check with the bar association in your town.

  • If you reside in CT and you have a judgement against you can they your lawsuit ?

    Tanya’s Answer

    I'm not sure I entirely understand your question. If you are asking whether they can attach the proceeds of lawsuit B in order to satisfy lawsuit A judgment, the answer is possibly. In order to collect on a judgment (that you aren't willingly paying) the holder of that judgment will have to go through a series of legal steps in order to get a wage garnishment or an attachment of your bank account. If you take the money from your pending lawsuit and put it in a bank, and they find it, they can execute on it.

    Tanya’s Answer

    You can bring a suit in court seeking return of the dog. It will take time (months, at least) so in the meantime, contact the police, and possibly the local animal control for them to do a welfare check on the animal.
