that was fast!JA: What state are you in? It matters because laws vary by location.Customer: I was terminated on March 13th due to a disagreement, I had with the COO from the company. I was fired not due to work performance or lack of work ethics. The COO was very angry that I answered him back by defending myself from his accusations. He was accusing me of "THROWING OUT A DOCUMENT" because I didnt know what to do with it. He (COO) has the representation for being short and rude. It is talked about freely thruout the office, which included my manager and other executives.JA: Of course. The best way to reach them is by emailing***@******.***Customer: They gave me a "separation agreement/contract" - which I consider hush money - after a few months of starting employment with the company I knew I was not THEIR cup of tea. They loved my work ethics but everything else about me was not liked and they did not hide it. Should I be emailing the address you provided with all this information?JA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: I still have the contract i have until April 3rd to sign. One page was referring to the payout they would give me - and the next 5 pages are Lawsuit related. I was a bit concerned because I did apply for unemployment and didnt know if that would void the contract.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I actually typed a lengthy summary - should I copy and paste?

Second opinion] I filed a motion...The judge ruled my motion

Second opinion] I filed a motion...The judge ruled my motion and opposition cross motion denied without prejudice....ordered that both parties contact and schedule mediation within 7 days of the order. I contacted the mediator within the timeframe. My adversary did not.I contacted my adversary and their reply was that they were unaware of an order and didn't receive anything (after 7 days), and that I should send them what I had.Question: Is it believable and/or acceptable for a lawyer awaiting a ruling, issued on a specified day to say a week later...that they didn't get anything?How serious will this failure and excuse be taken by the judge?Given the above and the likelihood that my adversary simply wants to delay, is there a way to fast track my motion rather than another 6 week process and do I have to start from scratch or do I just submit my same motion?

My husband and has been the only father that my children has

My husband and has been the only father that my children has known but because we could not get their biological father to sign anything and/or could not be found, my husband was not able to legally adopt them. The kids are now 21 and 23 and they want to have the same last name as their "father" and be legally recognized as my husband's children. Our question is do we just do a name change or can my husband legally adopt them now with their consent? Do we need to have an attorney to complete it either way we go?JA: Because family law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: FLoridaJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: noJA: This sounds important.
