Can I File A Wrongful Death Lawsuit Without An Attorney?
I Was Informed By The Court That It Comes Down To The Wording And The Attorneys Have Been No Help. I Need To File Three Lawsuits In Regard To The Death Of My Wife. As Well, Is An Oral Agreement Good Enough In Court To Prove A Small Claim Being My Stepdaughter ( Who Will Be A Defendant In The Wrongful Death) Made An Agreement With Me To Pay $10.00 A Month At First For Me Getting Her A Cell Phone And Putting Her On My Plan And Then The Same Thing When I Increased It To $20 After I Lost The Plan I Had For Ten Years Of Which She Contributed To. I Also Had An Oral Agreement And Actually And Email At One Time That I Would Get $200 A Month Toward Utilities When I Allowed Her To Move Back In. She Paid One Month On All Three And Then Stopped!
Unless you are trying to sue for a wrongful death caused by your stepdaughter with a cellphone please do not try and to this yourself. You are not able to articulate what you need here and there is little chance you would be able to do it in a courtroom.
Need Help Understanding Adoption Laws In Indiana.?
Okay, Here'S The Situation. My Friend (Jess, 25) And I (Britt, 24) Have Been Friends For 11+ Years And She Has A 5 Year Old Daughter (Jill). We Are Very Close And Consider Each Other Sisters In All But Blood. Lately, We'Ve Been Arguing On The Fact Of Where Jill Would Go Should Something Happen To Her. Jess' Family Is Small, And She Doesn'T Really Trust Any Of Them With Her Daughter, Aside From Her Aunt (Whom She Lives With).
We Had Talked About Having Me Put Down As Jill'S Godparent And Who Jill Would Go To Should Something Happen To Jess. Now, Jess Has A Lot Of Medical Problems And She Wants To Make Sure Jill Is Taken Care Of. She Has Expressed That I'M The Only One She Would Trust With Jill.
The Argument Has Been About How Jess Keeps Changing Her Story. At First, She Said Her Lawyer Told Her That In Order For Me To Be Able To Adopt Jill Was If I Had A Job And Place Of My Own. I Was Like 'Okay, I Can Work On That. No Problem'. Then She Said She Changed Her Mind And Jill Would Be Going To Her Grandma (Who Treats Jess Like Crap, And We Were Afraid That As Jill Got Older, She Would Treat Her The Same).
Then She Said Jill Would Be Going To Her Aunt (The One She Lives With), But She Works And Isn'T Getting Any Younger So It Would Be Difficult For Her. Then She Tells Me That Her Lawyer Said That Because I'M Not Related By Blood, I'M Not Eligible To Adopt Jill If Something Happens To Jess.
You Can Probably See My Issue. I Just Want To Know What Is True And What Isn'T.
Point by point: The lawyer's comments are half true, half not. I don't think it sounds like she's using an
adoption attorney, but you may be leaving out context.
"At first, she said her lawyer told her that in order for me to be able to adopt Jill was if I had a job and place of my own." Yes. To ADOPT a child you need to show financial stability and place of residence.
'because I'm not related by blood, I'm not eligible to adopt Jill if something happens to Jess.'
What exactly does this attorney thing adoption is? It's basically taking a child that is NOT RELATED to you, and the child becoming, through the legal system, "as if born to you".
Now, here's the deal: Jess can assign GUARDIANSHIP or CUSTODY to anyone she chooses, including a non-relative, BUT....a relative of the child could contest that, and possibly be successful. On the other hand, YOU could not contest the placement of a child with a relative with the same chance of success. An adoption would not take place until much later, after a home study was completed by the party who was awarded final custody.
In the event of young children whose father AND mother are no longer in the picture,, I believe a guardian ad litem is generally appointed by the court to determine the best interest of the child. If they're old enough, their wishes can also factor into the equation, as will the wishes of the mother.
As for her flip-flopping between the aunt and grandma, it's likely that their ages and health will be taken into consideration by the courts as far as their overall fitness as parents goes.
I would step back from the situation, myself. It sounds like it's causing a great dial of strife between all of you. And don't forget, Jill still has a father. I'm willing to bet that due diligence would be taken to attempt to notify that father that your friend had passed, leaving the fate of Jill up in the air.
Here are the Indiana statutes regarding guardianship:
This is the one in particular that you should look at:
Forced To Drive Under The Influence?
I Live In Tennessee And Recently Had Surgery. My Surgeon Says I Am Not To Go Back To Work Until A Few More Weeks. However, The Std Insurance Says I Need To Go Back To Work Now. They Know I Take Heavy Amounts Of Pain Medication (Loritabs) While Still Recovering. Can They Say I Have To Go To Work And Drive 45 Minutes Each Way During Rush Hour Traffic Knowing That I Am Going To Be Under The Influence Of A Narcotic.
No one is forcing you to drive under the influence. They are telling you to go back to work. How you get there is up to you. If you decide to break the law in order to go back to work, then you must pay the consequences if you are caught.
There are alternatives. If you have public transportation, take that. Get a ride from someone else. Or. if the doctor still thinks you should not go back to work, look into LTD (if you have the benefit).
Do Malpractice Attorneys Disfavor A National Health System?
Seems Like It Would Mean Less Malpractice To Work Off Of.
(America, Of Course)
No, but this is because they are idiots. And WOW is your premise way, way off base if you think a nationalized health care system would mean LESS malpractice.
There is far more medical malpractice in a nationalized-type health care system. (You can Google for the specific data, but, for example, take a look at how long it takes for a patient in a nationalized health care system to get an appointment for a CT-scan or an MRI or to have bypass surgery, etc.) In this country, patients would be suing for wrongful death over these kinds of delays. But in a nationalized health care system, there is no real choice. It comes down to supply and demand - and there are far and away more patients than there are doctors and medical equipment. And unless you are extremely wealthy (and can afford to pay for your doctor out of your own pocket), you are going to wait.
But the attorneys who focus on the initial flush of malpractice are very short sighted. There would INITIALLY be a big bump in malpractice causes of action, but then the doctors would have to be absorbed into the federal system. Once the doctors are federal employees (called "national doctors" in other countries), they can no longer be sued like a private citizen. Qualified immunity protects them - and patients who are treated negligently don't have any real recourse.
[I am continuing to shake my head over so many Americans steadfast belief a nationalized health care system would mean everyone would get a better/higher standard of care. It does not work that way. It cannot work that way. Look at our current federal economic crisis. Where would the money come to pay for health care? Nowhere, is exactly right. The national quality of health care would decline and there would be a six to eighteen month waiting list to have heart bypass surgery the way it is in Canada - rather than a zero to six DAY waiting period in this country. (There is a reason people from Canada come to America every day for bypass surgery - and it isn't because they WANT to pay for the surgery out of their own pockets.)]
Public Lawyer Or Private Lawyer?
Okay I Have A Misdemeanor Case & I'M Undecided If I'M Going To Get My Own Private Lawyer Or Just Go To A Local One. I Mean What Are The Advantages? And Dis Advantages? They Are As Good As The Private Ones Right?
a public lawyer? do you mean public defender? No. those guys roll over and take the easy way out. They do however have a lot of experience with criminal cases. Find a decent lawyer with a lot of criminal law background. If this is your first offense you should be fine. While the public defender is cheap they generally do not spend a great deal of time on your case.
How Do Traffic Defense Attorneys Work Their Craft?
My Son Got A Speeding Ticket (100Mph) On His Way To Las Vegas New Year'S Eve. We Have Prepaid Legal. The Attorney Said, She Knows The Judge And Just Pay Her $140. And The Citation Will Be Dropped, No Record, And Insurance Company Not Notified. She Didn'T Even Want To Hear His Excuse (Actually He Lacked One).
No magic necessary.
Most people that go in are offered a reduced fine, regardless of if they have an attorney or not. The average prosecutor has a very heavy case load. Plea bargaining is cheaper and less time consuming than going to court.
