  • Re: COLA Adjustment

    As Adjuster Jack noted, there are a wide variety of circumstances in which COLA adjustments can occur. You posted this question in a NY family law forum. Does this inquiry pertain to a monthly child/spousal support payment? If this is some kind of court ordered family support payment, the original court order may spell out when a COLA might be applicable

  • Re: Storage Items left behind

    If your tenant is on a lease thru a certain end date, you probably should not change the lock before that end date, even if she leaves a little before it. It would not be that unusual for a tenant to physically move out a little early, but move out his or her stuff "in stages" that might last a few days. You and your tenant probably want to

  • Re: Help with child support

    Merely terminating your parental rights would not legally relieve you from a child support obligation. However, if the child was indeed formally adopted by someone else that circumstance would. I think that your first step here would be verify that the adoption actually occured. What you think happened may not be what actually happened.

  • Re: Co-Parent Moving out of state

    I agree with the attorney. Switching schools, every other year like this is crazy and this is what would be required given the logistics. She is not a teenager yet, but in six short years, she will be and she really will want to to be with her friends and probably will raise "a huge fuss" about going back and forth like this. However, he will

  • Re: Television taken from me!!

    You can always take her to small claims court for the return of the TV or for the value of same, and then see what happens. But, this one is and will be a lot of he said/she said. I would not hold my breath. You were living together, but you were not married. Presumably, you both watched it while together. Ergo, marital property division rules will

  • Re: I want to settle my bodily injury claim on my own but . . ??

    It's only been about three months since your surgery so you probably are not "permanent and stationary". I personally would be reluctant to settle a claim like this one so soon after such major surgery. Neither I nor you would really know at this stage whether you will get somewhat better or not, but any injury that has kept you off work

  • Re: What to expect - Visitation

    He created the distance. It is his problem if he wants visitation. He cannot force you to return to MI. As for what the courts may decide about your eleven year old son with severe autism, if you have competent medical testimony that he cannot handle flying by himself, then it is unlikely that a court would require him to do so. You may very well need

  • Re: Are they allowed to fire me?

    Essentially, employment law only regards a termination as "illegal", if you are temrinated because of a protected characteristic, such as your race, sex, ethnic background, and a few others (some of which vary by state). Some states may also protect you if you were engaged in unionizing activities or whistleblowing activities or if you were

  • Re: Can They Really Do This?

    Certain Federal agencies, such as the Dept. of Defense (DOD) and the Dept. of Homeland Security DHS), with its many law enforcement subagencies, may have written policies about cell phones in place already. The Dept. of Justice, with its many law enforcement subagencies, probably has such policies as well. Federal agencies,the like Dept. of Heath and

  • Re: New HHS rule on Child Support--case closure?

    The new rule likely gives the state ssome discretion to close cases where collection of the arrears is "extremely unlikely". Examples of such situations may include ones where the obligor is known to be "deceased" or residing overseas in a country that is not a signatory to the Hague conventions or in situations where the state has
