    No, that is absolutely untrue. Until paternity is established in a court of law, you are free to make all the decisions on behalf of your unborn child. You are free to go is you please. Now, as a practical matter, I would not rub his nose in that.

    There is no way to precisely answer the question without mnore specifics. But here are the options: A] These funds could be Medical Payments coverage from your own Insurance company. However, those are usually paid direct to the provider, and the attorney is not entitled to a fee. B] It is a settlement check. If so, the Insurance company will have asked you to sign a release prior to cashing the check. You should have a copy of it. The attorney is entitled to a fee. C] The funds are advance...

    Likely you have a cause of action for medical malpractice. You need to call an attorney experienced in this field to find out for sure. The attorney will get your medical records, and have them reviewed by an expert to assess whether your doctor's actions fell below the standard of care under the circumstances. It is imperative to file suit within two years of the surgery, otherwise you will prohibited by law from any recovery from the doctor;'s malpractice insurance. Best Regards, Jeff

  4. What does "Proceedings Supplemental is terminated" mean?

    Sounds like you dodged a bullet, for now. The issue will be whether or not the proceeding was dismissed with prejudice. If the order contains that language it will be unlikely that the creditor would be successful obtaining another hearing on the matter. In the event the matter is litigated again, it is best to show up. prior to attending another hearing, I would also advise that you seek counsel from a bankruptcy attorney to see whether or not this is a judgment worthy of discharge. That...

    We frequently get defamation questions for situations similar to this. The good news, you have a case. Not for just defamation. Under the heading of invasion of privacy, Indiana recognizes “public disclosure of private facts.” It requires proof of the following essential elements: (1) private information was publicly divulged; (2) to persons who had no legitimate interest in the information; (3) in a manner that was coercive and oppressive; and (4) such information would be highly offensive and...

  7. What is the process for transferring guardianship of a minor (16) from his parents (willingly) to a family friend in Indiana

    Answered about 3 years ago.

    You need to Petition your court for guardianship of the child. You need to file in your local court, along with a consent to guardianship signed and notarized by the parents. This is something that would be difficult to do yourself. Althought I have outlined the general method, there are a number of steps involved which are adeptly handled by an experienced lawyer. I am likely outside your area, but I am sure you can find an attorney through Avvo that practices where you live. Best of Luck, Jeff

    Indiana does not favor spousal maintenance. That said, however, your circumstances may be one of the limited situations where it applies. Where a spouse becomes disabled during the term of the marriage, And cannot support themselves, it is likely he would be awarded some form of monthly maintenance. If you're close to receiving an answer on Social Security disability, I would wait it out a little bit. My unofficial survey of such cases, indicates that they are frequently awarded disability....

    Time to come clean with your spouse. You need to file bankruptcy! Do not use home equity loan. You are just trading unsecured debt on credit card for debt secured by your home. Arrange a free consultation with a bankruptcy lawyer so you can have facts and a path for resolution before talking to your spouse. Best regards, Jeff

    There is a practical reason those lawyers are not interested in your case. The defendant's insurance company is going to say they won't pay anything due to a "Delay in seeking care" they will force this case to a trial. You will need a medical expert who can clearly demonstrate your injuries that you began treating for in August, were causally connected to the accident in March. Very difficult to do. The insurance company, or better yet their attorneys, will paint you as a liar in front of the...
