528 Questions Answered
- Q. Is there a time limit in Illinois to seek medical aid with a on the job injury?
- A: The insurance company's perspective is that since you went without treatment for seven months you must not have suffered an injury needing treatment. In their eyes, the fact you need treatment for the first time seven months later indicates you suffered a re-injury that they are not responsible for but that you are trying to stick them with. These can be tough cases for the injured party's attorney. Your best bet is to contact an attorney immediately and explain the situation to him or her. It will help if you can establish a history of complaining about your shoulder at work during the seven months you went without treatment.
- Q. Where can I get info about local attorneys who can give me an approx cost?
- A: Call and ask them how much they charge and how fees are calculated.
- Q. In the state of Illinois. Do I have to return a Promise Ring to an exboyfrien?

- Q. Own a property with my husband and grandmother. How can we transfer Gram's interest to my name only?
- A: There's no way to answer your question authoritatively without more information. I encourage you to meet with an attorney. When you do, bring a copy of the deed establishing title in you, your grandmother and your husband. The answer to your question can only be determined by examining that deed.
- Q. What must I do to reestablish Cobra payment to an employer that ran out? I've Cobra by design until October 31, 2019.

- Q. How much would it cost to get emancipated? How hard is it to get emancipated at 16 in Illinois?
- A: Unless you are completely supporting yourself economically and both your parents agree you should be emancipated, it won't happen. How much it costs to will vary depending on the hourly rate charged by attorneys in your community.
- Q. Can my uncle (who is my landlord) evict me from the apartment he owns without time to find and move somewhere
- A: If the question is, "CAN he do it?" the answer is yes, people can do a lot of things. If the question is, "Yeah, but is he breaking the law when he does it?" the answer is also yes. He is supposed to give you notice that you're being evicted and, if you don't move out within the time specified in the notice (which is determined by law) he is supposed to take you to court and get a judge to order you to leave by a particular date and time. The best advice I can give you is to look for a new place to live and move, pronto.
- Q. Confused - downsides of getting a prenup and declaring assets ahead of time? Is it better to hide premarital assets?
- A: Under the circumstances you outline I see no downside to getting a pre-nup. I strongly encourage you to do so.
- Q. in Illinois if the house next to me is for sale, does the realtor have to have the property surveyed if i request it.
- A: No. If it matters a lot to you, pay for a survey of your lot, not the neighboring one. If it doesn't matter enough to you that you're willing to pay for a survey, you shouldn't worry about where the lot line is.
