  • Can I sue to fix my car and for diminished value?

    James’s Answer

    Sure you can, but it might make more sense just to report it to your own insurance company to take care of it. To sue him, you would need to find out his address to hold him responsible. Additionally, your claim is really against the child, not the parent. Parents are not automatically responsible for the actions of their children. It might not be financially worthwhile to file suit.

    James’s Answer

    It doesn't sound like it, based on your summary of the wording in the divorce documents. Was he represented by an attorney? If so he should ask this question to his attorney. If he doesn't have an attorney, he may want to get one.

    James’s Answer

    I think you are going to have a really hard time enforcing this. You would need to prove that there was an enforceable contract between you and the lottery winner. This would include a requirement that you gave some consideration for the promised gift. Additionally, damages for emotional distress are not recoverable in breach of contract case.

    James’s Answer

    Being listed on the homeowners insurance does not affect ownership of the house. If she is being conveyed an interest in the house for no taxable consideration, the only cost should be $26 to record the deed (and perhaps a legal fee to have the deed prepared).

    James’s Answer

    You have an authorization and affidavit signed by who? An authorization signed by the deceased prior to death may not be valid. You may need to open an estate and have someone appointed as personal representative to request the medical records. The Clerk of Court is often willing to help pro se parties through this process, or you can speak with an attorney who handles estate administration.
