Legal Answers
29 Questions Answered

Q. I fell at a local school during a non school event ( the school was being used o host a recital)
A: The first question is why you are working with an insurance company without an attorney? An experienced personal injury attorney would not only be able to get you the best answer but likely get you a better result than you can on your own. The insurance company is represented by an attorney. You should be as well. In direct response to your question, no medical provider can release your medical records without a HIPPA release signed by you.
Q. I have a court order to pay child support in puerto rico and I have my son what do I do if no one in asume picks up pho
A: Your question is incomplete as you do not state whether your son is in Connecticut, where the orders involving custody and support were set, and what the affidavit was for. From what you state your question may require an attorney in Puerto Rico if that was where the court orders you refer were set. More information is needed.
Q. is there a process to amend a divorce when the ex spouse has people living in the former residence paying rent
A: A motion for modification is used to request a change in a divorce decree when there are substantial changes in circumstances from when the last orders were put into effect. What you describe may not by a substantial change if the boarder is truly a boarder. You also do not state what the $2000 is going to, support or alimony, or whether the decree has any language not allowing amendments. You should take your divorce decree to a Connecticut divorce attorney for a consultation and proper advise. A full detailed answer is not otherwise possible here.
Q. IN CONN. DOES BARTENDER STILL HAVE THE RIGHT TO SERVE OR NOT a person
A: You can refuse alcohol to any person as long as it is not arbitrary or discriminatory. You can refuse alcohol to someone you deem to be underage, unreasonably rowdy, that exceeds your building's capacity and still wants to enter, if your kitchen or bar is already closing, or someone who is too inebriated to drink more. Some bartenders keep a log of people they refuse service to. This allows you to keep a record of your observations and reason for refusing service when you chose to refuse service in case that person files a complaint at some later date.
Q. Is throwing a 4 cell mag light (flashlight) and causing serious bruises on someone considered assault in any way
A: Throwing anything at anyone intentionally, negligently, or recklessly at another person is an assault. That the flashlight is not in itself a weapon (usually) or an inherently dangerous object will reduce any potential criminal ramifications. You may be sued civilly for any damages you caused as well. If charges are brought you should retain an experienced criminal defense attorney.
Q. My ex has full custody of 4kids when divorced 5yrs ago. One child became 22 and 2nd turned 19.Can I modify child suppo
A: The answer depends on your divorce decree wording. If college was considered than support of some sort for the adult children may be required. If the support was ordered unallocated, meaning awarded per each child instead of as a lump sum, you may not be able to modify it. Take your agreement to an experienced divorce attorney for your answer. If you used an attorney in the divorce return to that attorney for your answers first.
Q. my husband filled a divorce he lives in connecticut and i live in georgia I know i need to file some forms but not sure
A: You do not say if your marriage includes children or not. If you do not want to retain a Connecticut family law attorney to assist you directly the court has a publication that may help you to better understand what you need to do. It is called "Do It Yourself Divorce Guide". Understanding what the guide says to do is not best to do without an attorney to assist you. The cost of an attorney in a divorce pays for itself if you have any alimony, support, or property distribution issues.
Q. i have received a short calendar list claim/reclaim form in mail - what does this mean to me?
A: It means she is asking the court to put the Motion to Modify on the court short calendar to be heard. If you received it a while ago it may have already been heard by a judge and decided. Go to the court where the form was filed and look at your file to see the status of your matter. You probably will want to retain an experienced family law attorney to assist you in understanding your rights.
Q. Do I have to buy my husband out of the house before my son is 18?
A: Your question is missing parts needed to clearly answer it. If you have already divorced and are asking about the interpretation of your property distribution agreement you would have to show the divorce agreement or decree to an attorney for assistance. If you are not divorced and trying to work out property distribution, more information about the rest of your assets and life are needed. After 23 years of marriage it is recommended you retain an experienced divorce attorney to assist you in dividing your world. Doing it on your own is not recommended.
