I have a personal injury case going on in VA but I have to move to GA. Will that be a problem?

Asked over 1 year ago - Norfolk, VA

I cant get in contact with my lawyer right now and I need to find out asap if me moving to Georgia will mess up my personal injury case in Virginia. I will also be able to go back anytime for court if need be. Will it work out?

    Answered . If the matter is resolved without a trial, there won't be any issues. If, however, a trial must be scheduled, you will have to travel back to Virginia for the trial, as well appear at any depositions. You should make sure your attorney has your contact information and is aware of your relocation.

    Good luck.

    Answered . You have a lawyer. Why do you need to seek free advice from other lawyers you don't know? This may depend on your contract and your ability to come back for court dates, depositions, etc. Keep trying to contact him or her and wait on a reply. Try emailing them.
