Check with an attorney who handles both workers compensation claims and personal injury cases. Based on the limited information we have, I suspect that if you file a workers' compensation claim your employer's insurance carrier will try to allege that your injury occurred outside the scope of your employment.
Then, if you file a personal injury claim they will likely try to assert that it was an on the job injury and that the exclusive remedy is workers compensation (as Mr. Connell stated,...
If you were driving in Arkansas and caused an accident, the injured party can still bring a lawsuit, in Arkansas, against you regardless of whether or not you have moved prior to the filing of the suit.
Then, if that party obtains a judgment against you, they can register the judgment in Texas or whatever other state you have moved to and enforce the judgment against you there.
Your mother can revoke the POA any time she wants, from any location she wants.
Your mother can revoke the POA by simply telling the agent verbally that she is revoking it (although it would still be a good idea to have a written revocation that you can provide to third parties inasmuch as they may be provided with a copy of the POA and not know that your mother told the agent that the POA was revoked.
Even if the POA is not revoked, under a power of attorney, the agent (3rd child) has no...
They are not the same thing, they are two completely different causes of action, and not even held in the same type of court (even if it is the same judge hearing the custody case and the adoption, custody will be in the domestic relations division of the circuit court, while an adoption will be in probate court).
If the adoption is granted, all of your parental rights will be terminated and you will be a "legal stranger" to your child/ren. If your children are important to you, you need to...
You will want to ensure that you do not co-mingle any of the funds you receive from the IRA with any money earned during your second marriage or held jointly with your second husband.
If you do not mix the monies, the funds from the IRA will not be considered marital property.
Even if OCSE takes the position that they will not give him credit for the payments, it will be up to the judge to decide whether or not he receives credit (I am assuming that OCSE is going after him for arrears). Keep in mind that OCSE is there to collect child support, not to help out the parent ordered to pay support.
As the cliche goes, hindsight is 20/20, but if you have an order that requires payments to go through the Court's registry or through the Clearinghouse, pay as the order...
Contrary to popular belief, federal law does not control the division of military retirement benefits in a divorce. Federal law merely allows the states to divide military retirement as they would other retirement benefits.
Different states have different laws, so you will want to check with someone who practices in any jurisdiction your wife is likely to file (she may have a choice of different states) who is familiar with military divorce issues.
If you are still in the military, you...
The statute of limitations for medical bills is only 2 years, so you need to investigate before you do anything. If you make any payment, even $1.00, you will revive the statute of limitations.
Plus, if they are in her name only the collector has no grounds to hold your husband liable -- his ex may have a claim against him if he was ordered to pay part or all of them in the decree, but not the collector.
This is always a difficult question to answer on a general question and answer forum. There are certainly cases in which the expense of an attorney may not be necessary, but it is often a question of "do you know what all you do not know?" Sometimes people represent themselves, and find out later they got a bad deal because they did not know that they were entitled to something, or even how to ask for it.
Also, because we deal with the issues all of the time, an attorney will often look at...
