Things To Know
WILL: A person's declaration of how he or she wishes to dispose of their property after their death.
If you prefer not to make a Will, you can leave it up to the court to distribute your property after you die according to the state's intestacy laws.
DIVORCE: A divorce is a court order which formally ends the legal marriage of spouses.
Under District of Columbia law a spouse may petition the court for an absolute divorce or a legal separation for a period time followed by a divorce decree.
Did you know, today, for a divorce a spouse need not prove that the other spouse committed adultery or some other unsavory act?
CHILD SUPPORT: A sum the court orders one parent to pay for the child's basic living expenses which includes food, clothing, shelter, health care and education.
NURSING HOME ABUSE AND NEGLECT: (1) Nursing Home abuse implies that the care giver intends to harm the elderly person in some way. Unfortunately, nursing home abuse can happen to any resident under the care of a licensed care facility. (2) Nursing Home neglect is a form of substandard care or a breach of duty by a licensed care facility or caregiver to the resident that causes harm to the resident.
There are four types of Nursing Home neglect. They are 1) Medical neglect where the nursing facility fails to adequately attend to the resident or prevent medical concerns of the resident; 2) Neglect of basic needs of the resident, that is, fails to provide the resident with a reasonable amount of water or food, or fails to provide a clean and safe environment; 3) Neglect of personal hygiene of the resident where the nursing facility does not provide adequate assistance with cleaning, brushing their teeth, laundry, bathing or other types of hygiene practices; and 4) The nursing facility neglect the social or emotional needs of the resident. In other words, the staff members of the nursing facility repeatedly ignore the resident, leaves them alone, or an over stressed staff member yells at a resident.
PERSONAL INJURY & TORTS: Most of us recognize personal injury as involving an automobile accident, where one person is injured due to the careless driving of another person. Personal injury also involves negligent or intentional acts where one person harms another person either by accident or intentionally.
Whether you were injured or harmed because of someone's negligence or intentional act, under the civil law you may be entitled to recover damages caused by that person.
The purpose of personal injury and torts law is to provide relief to those who incurred damages because of someone's negligence or intentional act.
If you were injured or harmed by someone's wrong, you may sue for an injunction to stop the harm or for monetary damages.
