Go over your last court order with your attorney. If you don't have one, get one. They can explain the law of the case. This is assuming the other parent will not willingly agree to letting you enjoy parenting time.See question

If you remain in breach of the contract, you will have far fewer rights than if you had made payments as agreed. Nelson F. Brinckerhoff has given you some very good advice. If you do not cure your breach(pay the agreed amounts), you are vulnerable to an action for eviction.See question
I was employed for this supermarket. They up and decide that they were transferring me to a different location. I was in disagreement with that in the first place. The second day that I work at this new store, I am assaulted by a customer( hit wit...
That is quite a series of unfortunate events.
Let's look at them one at a time.
The customer who assaulted you with a bat may be both criminally and civilly liable to you. Meet with an attorney and bring all the evidence you have. If your employer provided the bat (or can be held responsible in some way for encouraging, or failing to stop the raging, bat carrying, customer and assuming they became aware of the situation or had faced similar situations in the past) they MAY have some contributory liability (but not likely) . You may also want to file a police report if one has not already been filed. All documents of costs of medical treatment for that assault, if any will be most important. Hopefully your employer will have video of the event should any dispute arise. (More reason to meet with an attorney as soon after these events as possible)
Crazy driver totaling car in parking lot.
Assuming, a report was filed, insurance information should be available (unless the driver was uninsured in which case you may be making a claim on your own uninsured motorist policy).
Fired for any non-discriminatory reason? (assuming you are an employee at-will), the best remedy may be to go and get a better job.
Thanks for writing and best wishes for better luck in the future.See question

If you have a contract that says you will be paid for the book hours and not the actual time worked, you may be in a good position. If you are part of a union, check with the union representative what your collective agreement is. If you are an employee at will, without a contract, you may want to seek work elsewhere if you are not satisfied where you are.See question
My two brothers and I are beneficiaries to my father's policy and we don't know what actions to take.
Sorry for your loss. Consult with a probate attorney in your area to address the entire scenario. If you are the named beneficiaries in the policy, you may not need to probate the estate. If there are other assets, it is worth sitting down with an attorney to make sure it is handled properly,See question
