Is A Personal Injury Lawsuit Settlement Taxable Income?
I Got A Check From The Irs For My Child'S Settlement When The Bank Her Money Was In Failed. Is This Money Taxable As Income? The Suit Was For A Physical Injury.
Not exactly sure why you got the check from the IRS, but here are theirs guidelines:
Court awards and damages. To determine if settlement amounts you receive by compromise or judgment must be included in your income, you must consider the item that the settlement replaces. The character of the income as ordinary income or capital gain depends on the nature of the underlying claim. Include the following as ordinary income.
1.Interest on any award.
2.Compensation for lost wages or lost profits in most cases.
3. Punitive damages, in most cases. It does not matter if they relate to a physical injury or physical sickness.
4.Amounts received in settlement of pension rights (if you did not contribute to the plan).
a.Patent or copyright infringement,
b.Breach of contract, or
c.Interference with business operations.
6.Back pay and damages for emotional distress received to satisfy a claim under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.
7.Attorney fees and costs (including contingent fees) where the underlying recovery is included in gross income.
Do not include in your income compensatory damages for personal physical injury or physical sickness (whether received in a lump sum or installments).
Emotional distress. Emotional distress itself is not a physical injury or physical sickness, but damages you receive for emotional distress due to a physical injury or sickness are treated as received for the physical injury or sickness. Do not include them in your income
Corporate Lawyer, Intellectual Property Lawyer, Or Bankruptcy Lawyer?
They All Sound Pretty Good To Me, But I Want To Know The Pros, Cons, And Salaries Of Each Jobs. Thanks So Much!
That would completely depend on your clients and the law firm you work for but I can tell you bankruptcy lawyers don't make as much as the other two but some lawyers do all three of those things. You don't specialize ina particular area until you start practicing and start taking on more cases in a particular area. Small town lawyers usually do it all because they're people's only option.
Bankruptcy Lawyer Pros - Usually little litigation
Cons- Tedious and little pay
Corporate Lawyer Pros - Lots of money involved
Cons - Lots of litigation and responsibility
Intellecual Lawyer Pros - New field high demand, $$$
Cons - Highly specialized and technology knowledge a must
Ok, Here'S The Situation: My Mom Has Been Married For 15 Years To A Man That Is Very Tempermental. She Has Never Been Hit But Day-To-Day She Never Knows What Kind Of Mood He Will Be In. Most Of The Time He Is Fine One Minute And Then Goes Off The Deep End, Suddenly Throwing And Breaking Everything. She Wants To Leave But She Doesn'T Want To Lose The House. She Feels That If She Physically Leaves The House She Will Lose The House In A Divorce. She Can'T Kick Him Out B/C It Is His House Too. What Should She Do? Like I Said, She Has Never Been Physically Abused So She Hasn'T Filed Any Reports. Help What Are Her Options?
Yes, your mother needs legal assistance. This man is emotionally, mentally abusing your mother. She needs to call the police when he acts up so there is a record in the system. She needs to contact a battered women's shelter and they can refer her to legal help that is affordable. Then she needs to file a restraining order and start divorce proceedings. In California it is a 50-50 property state and the house is usually awarded to who ever has the children. But that is what the attorney is for. Most attorneys have a free consultations to discuss the divorce and what she wants.
I am sure you already are but, be very supportive. Even though he has not hit her. Your mother could still be going through battered women's syndrome. Help her find a support group near her.
I wish you the very best of success in helping her leave this situation.

What Is Usually Done With The First Visit With A Divorce Attorney?
Do mean what happens at the first visit?
You and the Attorney have a general discussion about divorce in your State, including your grounds for the divorce. The Attorney advises you about State laws concerning custody/visitation/spousal support/child support, division of assets and debts.
He/she will give you an estimate of how many hours he/she "predicts" he/she will need to work on your divorce, including preparation time, time in Court, time on the telephone, any and all time spent. He/she will quote you an hourly rate (in my area about $275 an hour), explain the billing procedure - usually monthly. If the Attorney has paraprofessionals (who cannot, by law, give legal advice) their hourly for all they do is much lower than the Attorney's rate.
The Attorney will ask you for a retainer and will bill hours against the retainer until the retainer is gone. In some cases the Attorney then begins to bill you monthly. Sometimes the Attorney requests another retainer. The minimum retainer in my area is $3,000.
Then you either sign a retainer agreement and pay the retainer (money) or you decide to seek another Attorney or - in some cases - not file for divorce.
In general, the "moneyed party" (the party with the better income) is asked to pay for the legal fees of the other party. Unless there is a huge difference in income/assets this is usually denied by the Judge.
Pregnet With My Boyfriends Baby, And Not Legaly Separated Or Divorced Form My Husband.?
About 10 Months Ago I Finally Got The Courage To Leave My Husband Of 5 Years. The Marrage Has Been Over For The Last 2 Years. We Have 2 Beautiful Girls Together. Well For The Last 10 Months I Have Been With My Boyfriend, He Has Been My Rock And My Night And Shinning Armor Thew This Whole Emoshional Roller Coaster With My Husband. Well Just 2 Weeks Ago I Found Out That My Boyfriend And I Are Going To Have A Baby. My Boyfriend Is So Excieted And I'M Really Nerves. Well My Boyfriend Wants Me To Move In With Him Not Work Just Stay Home With The Kids. This Is What I Have Always Wanted To Be A Stay At Home Mom To Raise My Kids. Well My Husband Has Told Me That He Wants To Take The Kids And Run. Well My Questions Is Do You Think My Husband Can Take My Kids From Me Due To We Are Not Leagly Seperated Or Divorced And Pregnet With My Boyfriend Baby?
“do you think my husband can take my kids from me due to we are not leagly seperated or divorced and pregnet with my boyfriend baby?”
Can he get custody merely because you’re pregnant with another man’s child? No.
Is it going to end up being a battle because you’ve moved his children in with this man? It very well could. It depends on how much he wants to push it, if he can dig up any dirt on the man, etc.
I do think you need to reconsider quitting your job, because when you go to court your income will be ZERO. You can’t support your children with zero income. Yes, boyfriend will be providing for you, but still YOUR income will be zero. Boyfriend is not obligated to support your kids and at any time he could ‘remove’ his support (I know, you’re sure he won’t do that, but he can).
I’d highly suggest that you talk to a local attorney before you do anything.
By the way, if your husband is threatening to take the kids and run, then you need to get a temporary custody order, because if you don’t have that he can waltz right into the school/babysitter/etc and pick them up (without a temporary custody order, he has just as much right as you do to pick up those children).
