Legal Answers
Q. I received a settlement offer about child support fm my son's father & I don't know if its the best choice or even legal
A: You may or may not want to accept the offer. It depends on whether you can realistically collect the full amount owed. Also, interest accrues at 12% per annum, compounded monthly, on unpaid child support-so the amount owed may be more than you realize. Also, this probably should not affect the right to FUTURE payments. You should consult with an attorney to help you decide what to do.
Q. Mom & Dad passed away. 2 homes 4 siblings. 1 brother is living in 1 homew/other peole, need 2 sell how do you get him o
A: One option: Have one of the children file for probate and ask to be appointed personal representative of the estate. The PR can bring an eviction action if necessary. The PR can then sell the properties and administer the estate by paying any liabilities and distributing the proceeds among the heirs.
Q. In Colorado is a CFI supposed to be non bias. Can their duties be to only investigate o e party.
A: The scope of the CFI's investigation is set by the court order appointing him/her as the CFI-Child and Family Investigator. The CFI should be unbiased but the focus may be on one parent. You should review the terms of the order and should get a lawyer to help you with this.
