  • Likelihood of getting a fee waiver in filing for divorce in Hartford Ct. Above poverty line but struggling financially.

    Friend was denied the fee waiver when she submitted divorce paperwork. They said she can ask for a hearing. It is her and 2 kids. The husband is out of the house, living in a shelter and taking no responsibility to support himself or contribute ...

    Max’s Answer

    It's always possible that the judge may take pity on her, but for 350.00 I think it's a waste of time and losing work is worse. Often the courts are very stringent about allowing the waiver as well.

    Max’s Answer

    It is unlikely that any specific medication will be itemized or specified in the calculations of your settlement other than a surgical intervention need or maybe a specific expensive cortical steroid for some permanent lung conditions, as we have seen from our experience. However it can factor in as future pain and suffering and future pain medication. You should sit down with a personal injury attorney and talk in greater depth with them.

  • Can a creditor levy your bank account without a judgement?

    Can your account be garnished or attached without being first served with a summons to respond to a lawsuit?

    Max’s Answer

    The creditor can only go into your account with either authorization by you the debtor or after judgment, obtaining a bank execution. If you are dealing with a payday loan however, all bets are off. Don't ever ever use a payday loan.

  • How do I collect on a judgment I was awarded.

    I was awarded a judgment in 2006, the defendant started paying and stopped. The last payment was received in June of 2006

    Max’s Answer

    You should consult with an experienced collection attorney as soon as possible. There is a 10 year statute of limitations on a judgment which means you are running out of time to collect. A collection attorney, like myself, will often do an asset search and research the debtors job to determine which way to collect would be best. My office will usually attempt to obtain a wage garnishment, a property execution, or a bank execution.

    Max’s Answer

    Your question is entirely unclear. Is the other driver your mother? Or is the other driver someone who caused the accident unrelated to you? If the car was totaled due to the negligence of another driver, you may have a claim against them for your property damage.

    Max’s Answer

    You definitely have recourse. There is something called a dram shop act in the state of Connecticut that can be filed to go after any establishment that may have contributed to an already intoxicated person becoming more intoxicated. Time is of the essence in matters like this. It is very important that you see a qualified attorney as soon as possible. My office has handled many cases like this. Please feel free to contact us for more information.
