    Although you have a short period of time to prepare your lawsuit and file your Complaint, I would advise you to meet with an attorney that practices in employment discrimination matters. Many attorneys will provide you with a free consultation, and some cases like this are often handled on a contingency basis, meaning the attorney only gets paid if he wins or recovers damages for you, and he receives a percentage of the amount; that arrangement costs you nothing out of pocket (perhaps a filing...

    If your case is pending in Will County (because it lists your location as Joliet), or any of the surrounding IL counties, you would likely want to file a motion with the court to amend any order that gave him credit for an expense paid entirely by his employer, and to potentially require that he provide 100% since he is able to do so here. His child support is to be based upon his net income, so insist that it is. Regardless, before you could even agree to give him a credit for insurance,...

    You'll want to give notice to the employer of your demand for final payment. If the employer does not make payment as required under the law following your demand, then you can file a lawsuit. If you file a lawsuit, retain an attorney that will represent you on a contingency basis (i.e., you only pay if you win) to reduce any expenses. Regardless, don't wait. Your employer has no right to deny you your paycheck. --------------------------- Give us a call to schedule a free...

    Illinois allows liberal visitation time; however, if your ex-wife is not willing to accommodate your request for increased time, then you'll need to enforce your rights in court. A petiton to modify visitation would be the proper filing. Your basis can be any benefit the child would receive from increased visitation with you, as well as your right to 'liberal' visitation under the law. If your visitation schedule was set when the child was much younger, the fact he is older now is another...

    A police commissioner cannot override an order of protection. If the individual was in violation of the order, and the officers had notice of same, they should have arrested him.

    The bankruptcy filing automatically stays the foreclosure; however, you should file a motion to stay the foreclosure proceeding, citing the pending bankruptcy matter as the basis. It is possible the law firm handling the eviction is unaware of the bankruptcy filing. Or, if the judgment of foreclosure was entered prior to the bankruptcy petition being filed, you should consult with your bankruptcy attorney to determine the effect of the "stay", if any, on a post-judgment action.

    A Petition to modify the terms of the divorce decree is needed. This is likely something you can accomplish pro bono, and I would imagine your ex-husband would agree to the extent that he'll no longer be responsible for the cost.

    I would agree with David. You'll want an attorney to file a motion in court on your behalf preventing such conduct. A judge should be able to make it clear that such conduct will not be tolerated, or perhaps a resolution could be worked out so an appropriate court order can be entered that will prevent such a lawsuit.

    I don't believe the airline would be responsible for this; they couldn't have known you lacked the proper visa, have no obligation to ensure you did, and you are likely responsible for knowing what you need to travel. The cancellation fee may be unlawful if it was not provided for in the contract/agreement. James Rowe is an attorney with The Law Firm of Rowe & Associates in Illinois.
