24 Questions Answered

Q. Hi can I use my original birth certificate from Argentina to apply for US citizenship ? I am a permanent resident .
A: Your original birth certificate should be fine as long as it has all the required information upon it. However, if it is in a foreign language, all foreign language documents must be translated into English. You should provide a plain photocopy of the original document and its translation into English, which can be translated by a professional or anyone who is fluent both in English and your native language. However, you cannot do it yourself if you are the petitioner or the beneficiary of this petition. Good luck
Q. I signed a student loan for my daughter and now she does not want to pay what is my recourse. What type of lawyer do I n
A: I am a bankruptcy attorney. The majority of student loans are not dischargeble in bankruptcy. In a bankruptcy, the debtor by way of their (experienced) bankruptcy attorney can file an adversary proceeding (like a mini-trial within the bankruptcy court) to attempt to have their student load discharged. A student borrower must prove that not discharging the student debt would cause an "undue hardship." Now defining this term is something lawyers continue to argue about. However, in Connecticut we follow the Brunner test from a more than 30 year old U.S. Court of Appeals decision. First, the debtor must prove that it would be impossible to maintain a minimal standard of living while repaying the loan. Second, the financial hardship must continue for a significant portion of the repayment period and Third, the borrower has made a "good faith" effort to repay the debt. Generally , in order to qualify under this test, the debtor has some form of major life altering disability. You on the other hand are merely the guarantor of the student loan, so bankruptcy will not get rid of this debt for you. That is not to say there are not other methods to remove this loan from you but all other methods are equally unlikely and difficult. Please contact me for further information. 203.870.6700
Q. I lived with my x girl house were not married my checks from work got direct deposit into her bank can i get it back
A: It will depend on how this all transpired. Did you authorize this transfer somehow? Did she commit identity fraud? Your question is still somewhat vague.
Q. and how would the debtor be able to get the funds ? report it to the trustee ?
A: I am not sure which funds you refer to. What would you report to the trustee? More details are needed to answer this question.
Q. i am the child of a us citizen brought to the US when i was 11 yrs old illegally from Jamaica in 1999 . i have daca
A: I see that you are in Milford and wanted to note that we are five minutes from you in Stratford. Regarding your question, I think you should sit down and consult with an experienced immigration attorney to determine your best options. Attorney Amy Morilla in my office is a wonderful immigration attorney nearby. Regarding an i-601 waiver, it is my understanding that these are given to people who would otherwise be eligible for a green card but because the U.S. government can refuse entry to anyone who falls within the list of grounds of inadmissibility found in Section 212 of the Immigration and Nationality Act (I.N.A.), a waiver is required. As a result there may be a more appropriate method to achieve your goals. Please feel free to contact us and mention this answer. We can be reached at 203.870.6700
Q. What is the minimum and maximum sentence for breaking into a depository in Connecticut
A: Your question is very interesting but lacks details. Was the burglar armed? What were they armed with? What kind of depository. In order to determine how the crime would be classified, we would need more details. It may be well withing your best interest to consult with a knowledgeable attorney. Our number is 203.870.6700. Without knowing the classification, a basic answer would be as follows : Class A felony 10 to 25 years, up to $ 20,000, or both Class B felony 1 to 20 years, up to $15,000, or both Class C felony 1 to 10 years, up to $ 10,000, or both Class D felony 1 to five years, up to $ 5,000, or both Class A misdemeanor Up to one year, $2,000, or both Class B misdemeanor Up to six months, $1,000, or both Class C misdemeanor Up to three months, $500, or both
Q. My mortgage co offered me a mod trail I paid all those then they offered another mod but they say I haven't pd
A: You need to sit down and consult with an attorney who focuses on Modifications and Foreclosure Defense as soon as possible. It is possible you have a case against the mortgage company for not properly applying payment. We have handled cases similar to this before against some of the larger banks. Please feel free to contact me for more information if we can be of assistance.
Q. My ex husband was arrested for sexual assault on a 11 year old girl. He confessed it and now someone bailed him out.
A: I am so sorry you find yourself in this terrible situation. The best advice I can offer you is to seek experienced family law counsel. Perhaps you might get a temporary restraining order if you are in fear for yours and your children's safety, by going to the police. You might be able to get a permanent restraining order by going through court. You will definitely need to consult with an attorney regarding the custody issues. Good luck.
Q. Attacked and sustained injuries, how likely will a first time offender be arrested?(CT)
A: You should consult with a personal injury attorney as soon as possible if you have not done so already. Also you should discuss the criminal aspect with an attorney who would have experience in this as well to determine if you need to appear or speak with the victim's advocacy office. Feel free to contact me for more information. 203.870.6700
