Q: 

Is there a way to collect past due support? Rhode Island

Q: 

Is there a "legal" definition of Full Time Status in California Labor law?

A:  Yes and no. There are indeed legal definitions of full time in California labor law. However, the law is also very careful to indicate that these definitions are specific to the sections of the law that they are associated with. http://www.leginfo.ca.gov/cgi-bin/displaycode?section=lab&group=00001-01000&file=500-558 515(c) For the purposes of this section, "full-time employment" means employment in which an employee is employed for 40 hours per week....

Q: 

Is there a time frame to get compensation?

A:  Did your employer file CH 11 or Ch 7 ? In a Chapter 11, claims owed to employees are like 6th on the list of those to be paid. Its unlikely you can expedite the process. Thank you for the answer. The employer filed CH 11 and the company has been sold to an investment company. I wonder whether there is a time frame (or maximum time allowed) that law stipulates the employees (assuming on the 6th of the compensation list) must be paid? Lets say 5, 10 years or no time frame? In addition, will the compensation include the interest if it is finally paid in many years?...

Q: 

Is there a legal point at which non payment of support = grounds to lose rights?

A:  I don''t know about MN but I believe it most, if not all, states do not use support as a basis for terminating parental rights. In most cases, it''s not as simple as someone not wanting to contribute financially. I don''t know about MN either but in AZ child support and visitation are viewed as two different issues. A custodial parent can be in trouble with the court if visitation is denied even if child support has NEVER been paid. In my opinion, I think it''s totally wrong to let someone have visitation rights if they don''t want to help with everyday support of the kids but the court says it''s ok... go figure!...

Q: 

Is there a law against this??

A:  We don''t think so. It seems more a business point to negotiate as far as we can tell. You could raise the fee you charge to cover the card cost. Or simply negotiate a different arrangement. We doubt he would want people leaving over a one or two percent margin. Some agreement seems likely. Let us know if not....

Q: 

is there a lawsuit for wrongfull termination?

A:  You left out some rather pertinent information, such as what your position was, that might shed some light on why you were terminated. For example, were you in a supervisory role or some other capacity that required you to report such incidents or that management legitimately had higher expectations for you than these other employees? The bottom line however is that while the decision might be unfair, it wasn''t illegal. I don''t see any basis for a lawsuit. we have had 4 different supervisors this past month, they keep quitting, at the time the meeting was called it was i and glynis(another employee) attending and representing arizona health care. it was glynis who brought up the incident. remember, i wasnt on duty at the time it occurred. the ones that were are...

Q: 

Is there a limitation to how old a debt can be?

A:  They have a limit for timely filing a claim with insurance, but there''s no time limit on how long it takes them to bill you. The fact is, YOU are liable for ALL medical charges at the time of service. The practices and medical facilities file your claims for you as a courtesy, but you are still liable for the full amount. Have they tried to resubmit the claim to the secondary insurace at the RIGHT address ?...

Q: 

Is there a list of expenses somewhere?

A:  There''s an excellent list of expenses that can be input as a daily or yearly amount and the worksheet converts it to a monthly equivalent for filing purposes. Go to http://www.ca-bankruptcy-attorneys.com/calculators/expense_calculator.html Once you have your list of expenses, write them down and go to the following site: http://www.conjur.com/misc/7vs13LatestRev2.xls Input your monthly expenses into that worksheet along with your total debt and net household income. There you''ll be able to check your status regarding your likelyhood of Ch 7 or Ch 13. Thank you, Elmo-1. Excellent sites. For others that may be lurking: The spreadsheet is in Excel format I believe (xls) but may be imported into MS Works or most any other spreadsheet program. Thanks again, Elmo-1. Much appreciated!...
