Settled wrongful death case, part of settlement was a $2000

Settled wrongful death case for minors, part of settlement was a $2000 check each month from annuity company in my name to raise kids on, rest is tied up in trusts and structured settlements for them. Now hateful judge is wanting me to spend only $800 of $2000 have to ask court permission to touch other $1200 each month, bank says no, can't follow that order because annuity and direct deposit for the $2000 is in my name only. The settlement that was approved specifically says that. One attorney says only spend the $800, my other says copy the check and spend what I need. I just don't want to get in major trouble

My friend has a structured settlement and he tried to sell

My friend has a structured settlement and he tried to sell part of it to JG Wentworth. The judge assigned an attorney to him in the courtroom and the attorney asked for much additional financial information from him and drug it out, cancelled meetings and after about 9 months he realized he was being stonewalled and went to the lawyers office and picked up his documents. He then received an Order of Non-Suit letter saying all unpaid court costs would be taxed against him. Will he owe anyone any money due to this? He never signed anything with the assigned attorney.

Part of the settlement awarded me in divorce decree

Part of the settlement awarded me in divorce decree (4/7/16),is half of an existing annuity. I am told to create an account meeting certain criteria to be able to accept this award. I am trying to find that criteria through a source having no interest in how they convey this beyond meeting standards of clarity.

When i was 7 yrs old, my mother and i were t by a diesel. I

hello when i was 7 yrs old, my mother and i were hit by a diesel. I survived but unfortunately my mother did not. Since i was only 7 yrs old i myself could not sue the company that hit my mother, so my grandmother sued them on behalf of me and my siblings. We won the suit for wrongful death and each kid was awarded a lump sum which was then made a structured settlement. I have 2 questions, first is it possible for me and my siblings to re sue the trucking company that hit me and my mother? and secondly can i possibly go in and change the way my money is managed instead of having to wait a certain amount of years before receiving my settlement checks? btw my mother and i were hit in October 25th 2001.
