My parents do not have any papers written about who has custody
There is no hard and fast rule about how this works. At age 14, it is more likely that a Judge will take into consideration your wishes, as long as it is for the "right" reasons. For example, if one parent is obviously more stable and responsible than the other, and you want to be with that parent for those reasons, the chances that a Judge will honor your wishes are definitely improved. On the other hand, if you want to choose the parent that is the most lenient, lest you stay out later, and has no rules, chances are less that the Judge will take into consideration your preferences.See question

Does a criminal case have to be over before a person files a law suit against all parties involved?
In theory you can file a lawsuit any time. The better practice is to wait until the criminal matter is concluded. Even if the other person clearly made false allegations against you, you will need to be able to demonstrate how those allegations damaged you, and as a practical matter, there will need to be some way for you to collect on an anticipated judgment. This is a serious matter, and you will want to move very deliberately (if at all) with the input and guidance of an experienced personal injury lawyer.See question

It is unlikely a workers' compensation judge is going to interfere with the attorney fee contract you signed. 35% might be slightly higher than the industry norm, but there may have been special circumstances about your case that justified a slightly higher fee. You yourself state that you were "desperate" when you signed the contract, which tells me that you were having a hard time finding a lawyer. I can tell you you are wrong when you say that most lawyers charge a contingency fee in the range of 10 to 15%.See question
