    Joseph’s Answer

    You don't have to do anything with him except collect child support after the baby is born. You can restrain him from you but he does have parental rights. He probably will disappear. Make him responsible for child support, the child will need it and if he is the father he is legally responsible.

  • May I ask summer camp organizer to reimburse the out-of-pocket medical cost for my kid head injury?

    My kid had a head injury at a half-day summer camp. There were 4 teachers/assistants and ~10 pre-K kids. None of 4 teachers/assistants knew what happened. The cause of incident is "unknown" on the accident report. My kid was sent to ER and had su...

    Joseph’s Answer

    Kids fall and get a suture (stitches) all the time. I would definitely ask for reimbursement of out of pocket expenses because it happened on their watch. They have a duty but all accidents cannot be prevented.

    Good luck.

  • I live in an apartment complex and my landlord has sold the building, can the new landlord kick me even under my current lease?

    Just found out that my landlord might have sold the building I live in and the new landlord wants to kick everyone out of the building. I want to know what I can do in this situation and what are my rights. I am under a 1 year lease agreement and ...

    Joseph’s Answer

    You have a contract. He can allow you to move without being contractually bound. Your contract is good and you may have a cause of action against your current landlord because of your contract. You must study and understand the term of your contract because it may address this issue and most people don't fully read the contracts they sign.

    Find a lawyer. You should be able to occupy the rental through the contract period.

    Good luck.

    Joseph’s Answer

    Not only do you have a domestic relations problem, if your son was truly kidnapped you may have a law enforcement issue which is that your husband may have kidnapped his owe child. You may want to file an Amber Alert in Gerogia, even better he has a residence.

  • What can I do about time Warner cutting my direct tv dish cable?

    I am a Direct Tv customer and a Time Warner guy was at my apartment complex installing someone's cable. He proceeds to CUT my dish cable without any warning. I called time Warner to complain and he told them that we were stealing their cable! Obvi...

    Joseph’s Answer

    Call your Direct TV customer service and Time Warner, if you are persistent and work it out. You may have a cause of action for "interference with contract" and "you would have to ask for punitive damages" but if your damages are less than $10,000 go to small claims. That is If they are cutting it intentionally. However, as they claim you are stealing their signal, and if they are correct you may be in hot water. I assume you have up to date billing records, because it will all boil down to what you can prove on paper.

    You can consult with me at (216)316-3161.
    Good luck.

    The mother has been receiving medicade.

    Joseph’s Answer

    This is an unusual question, so the only way it can be answered is as such: are you divorced or legally separated. If the answer to either of those questions is yes. Also, if you are not married the court could order support.

    If you would like a consult please contact me and mention AVVO question.

    Joseph’s Answer

    Were you fired or laid off? Although I do not practice in NYC, here in Ohio an employee can be let go for "no cause" what so ever or for cause. The difference is that a "for cause" release (termination or firing) will impair your right to collect workers' compensation.
