    You must hire an attorney to evaluate whether the other party was liable and whether the negligence of the other person was the cause of your injury. These may seem like easy questions to answer, however ou will not know until an experienced attorney evaluates your case. Good luck.

    We need more information to determine whether New York may have retained jurisdiction. You need an attorney to review your final judgment for any possible modification.

    You must speak with a qualified attorney in your state about the options available to you. Do not hire an attorney who gives you any amount that your case may be "worth." The case must be evaluated based on many factors. Good luck.

    Yes, there is potential for a lawsuit. There may be caps on the recovery available to you, especially if this is a public school. Without knowing if your daughter was permanently injured (I hope not), it is difficult to assess the situation. So, the short answer is yes. However, the true viability of your claim can only be properly assessed by a qualified attorney in your State. i hope your daughter is well.

  5. Can I start receiving Child Support before the divorce is finalized?

    You can file a motion for temporary relief for child support while the divorce is pending, and potentially temporary spousal support as well. I agree witht the first answer that mediation is often required, so you should file the motion as soon as possible, because it may be some time before you receive a ruling from the Judge if you are not able to resolve the issue at mediation.

    The checks are always made out in this manner. I agree with the attorneys who have answered this question. I also am surprised that the insurance company is willing to remove your Husband's name. It seems that you are in good hands with your present attorney. Patience will have to be your guide at this point.

    Yes, you can serve the attorney, but only if they accept service and if they represent your Wife in the divorce. You can also have her served anywhere outside the home, like work if that is available to you. Good luck.

    Is your Former Husband paying the alimony he was ordered to pay? I assume your son is not a minor? There is little you can do in a family law case regarding your son. He can live where he wishes, as he is an adult. The exception to that would be if he was found to be a dependent and disabled prior to reaching the age of majority. Since you said he is in college, I assume he is able to care for himself? If your Former Husband is not paying the spousal support you could file a post judgment...

    You should hire an attorney to Motion the Court to appoint a Guardian ad Litem. In the counties I practice in, the Judges generally do not allow children to testify. There is a possibilty that the Judge will speak with the child in camera (privately in their chambers), but it is much more likely that a Guardian ad Litem would be appointed to testify on your child's behalf. I wish you the best of luck.
