    My information would suggest that you discuss this with your daughter and your ex-husband separately. Explain the situation first with your daughter ask her what her preference is. If she wants nothing to do with you ex-husband, try to be rational and reasonable in light of the circumstances. If the relationship is strained between daughter and dad this may give them a chance to work things out. If they say yes, then give it try. If you daughter says no and you ex-husband say no, speak...

    You can be fired for just about anything, but in the wash he will not say it's or your tattoos if your boss has "sleeves". My advice would be to cover up with out a "full display" if he fires you for your tattoos you might have a case, however the content of you tattoos may be offensive, I don't know. Sexual harassment claim made (are you male or female?) Circumstances may be viewed as retaliatory discharge. How far did you take the claim? Formal pursuit of the sexual harassment through...

    Read the Order very closely, if she tries to initiate contact with you do not reply. The order is to protect her not you. You need to run if you see her coming and don't answer the phone or email if she calls because your in the hot seat. My information says you are heading for trouble. If you see her by accident, what are you supposed to do, leave immediately, right. Stay away, they granted the order for some reason and they are not just going to lift it. The order must be dismissed....

    The Court’s Interpretation of Serious Impairment of Body Function In rendering its final decision, the Court initially turned to the plain language of Michigan’s no-fault statute and reiterated the definition of a serious impairment of body function. As defined by section 500.3135(7) of the Michigan Compiled Laws, a serious impairment of body function is “an objectively manifested impairment of an important body function that affects the person’s general ability to lead his or her normal...

    If you are keeping current on your attorney fees there is probably a serious breakdown between you and your attorney. You must have a completely different expectation than what is in the bounds of reason. I can't imagine that it's a money issue from what you indicate, what I can only assume (if money is no object) is that you you were asking your attorney to engage in vexatious or merit-less motions or filings that are "in bounds" so to speak but not necessary. Seriously, you must...

    If you are able to prove that you were not drinking, like having an eyewitness who saw you brush your teeth and use mouthwash right before you got pulled over, this is probably not a plausible defense. Something doesn't add up though, whose toothbrush did you use? And why were you pulled over? Using mouthwash alone will cause only a temporary false positive, and after a short time you would not still be blowing a .10. How much time passed between you using mouthwash and getting pulled over...

  7. Grantor/trustee of an Ohio irrevocable trust for prior children dies intestate six months after our marriage. What can I do?

    Generally speaking, an irrevocable trust is just what it says, it cannot be revoked. You may have a right to anything outside the trust. I would also double check to see if he has a will somewhere. I can't imagine that he wouldn't given the fact he created an irrevocable trust. As a trustee he has a right to dispose of trust assets, but it seems clear to me that he definitely wanted his children to "take" as the parlance goes. My information suggests that you cannot be added to the trust as...

    It sounds like there is nothing you can do but keep checking. Your question is a bit tough to understand. If you are dealing with the Social Security Administration find out if there is a case handler and try to get to the bottom of this. You are not entitled to social security payments if you are incarcerated..

    Do you have a divorce decree and parenting plan in place yet? Try to be civil and bend over backwards not to fight. My information indicates you need to file a "motion to show cause" and in the body of the motion you ask the court to make your soon to be "ex" show cause why they shouldn't be held in contempt for failing to comply with a court order. You said the papers are in process, so you may be a bit premature unless you already have an agreement regarding custody.

    You must comply with the subpoena, even if you don't want to testify I don't think it will matter so much, because the police responded to a situation involving domestic violence, which very possibly could have become a homicide - first, he choked you, which is at a minimum felonious assault, second, you ran away because you were scared and afraid and went to your best friends house and your boyfriend stalked you to your friend's house to re-engage with you carrying a handgun. Does he always...
