Legal Answers
13 Questions Answered

Q. I live in New York but want to sue a contractor in Puerto Rico - where do I file?
A: The venue rules in New York permit a person to file a complaint in the county in which s/he resides. Keep in mind, however, the law of Puerto Rico will probably apply. Note: if there is an agreement that contains a choice of law and a venue clause, then the contract would most likely govern (assuming the contract provides that its provision is without regard to a conflict of laws analysis).
Q. If I deposit cash into my child's UTMA account after she turns 21, is that deposit considered my daughter's UTMA Funds?
A: As a general rule, once money is deposited into an UTMA account, it is irrevocable. In other words, the money cannot be returned to the person who deposited the money. This is so even when the child reaches the age of majority. You should discuss your situation with your bank and your daughter. The foregoing is not legal advice nor is it in any manner whatsoever meant to create or impute an attorney/client relationship.
Q. Hi if DHL courier lost my travel documents and am unable to travel anymore what grounds can I approach them on
A: You should check your receipt or other documentation. Typically, carriers limit their liability for loss of property. Also, you may have agreed to arbitrate your claims. Other than the cost of replacing the lost papers, it does not appear that you sustained any damages (such as identity theft). You should consult with a lawyer to review the papers and opine on your options. The foregoing is not legal advice nor is it in any manner whatsoever meant to create or impute an attorney/client relationship.
