What is the difference between a misdemeanor and a felony?
The difference between a misdemeanor and a felony generally relates to the severity of the crime and the penalty imposed.
I was injured through no fault of my own. Can I file a personal injury action?
If you or a loved one are injured by another’s negligence, carelessness, or wrongful conduct, you may be able to seek compensation from the negligent party and his or her insurers.
Do I need to hire a personal injury attorney?
Representation by an experienced personal injury lawyer can help level the playing field with big companies and their big insurers. Remember, they have well-paid attorneys looking out for their interests.
How much does it cost to get a divorce?
The cost of a divorce is determined by the complexity of each individual case. The more issues in dispute and the more complex the case, the higher the cost. At Alan S. Forman, LLC, we strive to resolve your divorce in the most efficient and cost-effective manner possible.
How much child support will I have to pay, if any? How is this determined?
Child support is determined based on a formula set out by statute. This formula uses factors including the number of minor children, income of both mother and father, cost of health insurance for the children, cost of daycare, etc. The law assumes the residential parent is already contributing to the child’s needs and directs the other parent to pay a percentage of his/her income to the custodial parent.
How often do I need to update my will?
Your will should be reviewed by a licensed attorney and updated any time that there has been a significant change in your personal life or financial situation. A significant change may be the death of a beneficiary, marriage, divorce, or a move to a different state. You should have your attorney review your will periodically to ensure that it meets your needs.
