Can you sue family court?
I would like to know the answer to this question. After having gone through a year of horrible divorce proceedings, my case was finally closed in Dec. 2008 with the final divorce decree. I was not aware that my file is available to the general public to view in the state of nh. In NH one can just walk into family court ask for the file if they have the case number and even if they dont they could just ask the clerk and they could obtain it for view. No questions asked of them as to why they wish to review it and also they dont have to log in with their name, address, phone number etc. I went in after my divorce to look up something in my file (with no questions asked) and found out that not only can one see my name, date of birth, address and phone number but also within my file is my social security number! I took exception to this and spoke to the clerk and she stated I must file a motion to have info omitted. But the kicker was that it was not a guarantee that the judge would approve it and I must now pay a $100 filing fee to reopen the file/case to have it presented to the judge. I stated that I did not want to pay the fee that if I had known about this prior to the file being closed and given the opportunity to review it for info that I wished to have omitted I would have done so and therefore would not have had to pay the fee. The clerk said I could fill out a motion to have the fee waived but would have to fill out a financial affidavit. I said it would just show I had the means to pay and its the principal of the issue. So she said the file would not be presented without the filing fee. A catch 22. So I at present wrote to the head of the clerks at family court stating that I feel its a breach of my privacy and security especially with identity theft on the rise. If my identity is stolen or breached I would turn to the court and demand that they tell me who has viewed my file etc for I know that all this info is available to the public and to any predator.

Answer Basically both the plaintiff and the defendant will have the opportunity to make statements pertaining to the case and present supporting evidence. T…he judge will then rule on which one proved their case. If the plaintiff wins they will receive a writ of judgment and can execute it against nonexempt property belonging to the defendant. The usual choice is wage garnishment or bank account levy.In some states the winning party can also collect legal fees and/or court costs that were incurred.
Yes, if they did something that warrants you suing them.
U.S. Court of Federal Claims.

If you're asking whether you can sue a Supreme Court justice because of a decision he or she made, the answer is no, all judges and justices have qualified immunity from civil… action arising from official business. If you're asking whether you can sue a Supreme Court justice for something that occurred outside the realm of his or her job, then yes, supreme court justices can be sued just like any other person under US jurisdiction. The immunity doesn't extend to actions taken in their personal lives.
Go to the court house in the county where you live and/or the county where the action occurred. Ask the clerk, "What do I need to do to file a small claims suit?" Follow her/h…is instructions. Also, if you look online, you'll find information about small claim suits in your county. Google "how to file small claims suit" along with the city, county, and state name. Then, look for the website that ends with ".gov" and go to it. Stay away from the about.com websites with "how to" instructions as they are often wrong.
$20 It depends on the jurisdiction in question. Nowadays, most claims under $10,000 are legally required to be handled in Small Claims Court. The minimum you can ask for is… generally an artifact of old legislation in your area, and may be set ridiculously low (as the above $20 indicates), or may have been updated more recently to something reasonable (like $100 or more). Ask your local Sheriff or city Police Department (or, District Attorney's office), as they should know for sure in your area.
You cannot sue a state in state court. The Eleventh Amendment, ratified to protect the states from the Supreme Court's decision in Chisholm v. Georgia, (1793), initially onl…y protected states from being sued in federal court by citizens of another state. In Hans v. Louisiana, the Supreme Court ruled that a citizen cannot sue their own state either, based on principles of state sovereign immunity and federalism. Then in Alden v. Maine, the Court extended sovereign immunity further, and prohibited private suits against states in state court as well. Therefore, the bottom line is that citizens cannot sue states, state entities, or state officials in their official capacities (Citizens can sue state officials as individuals. There are, however, a few limitations to state sovereign immunity: First, a state can be sued if they consent to the suit. Second, Congress (under the 14th Amendment) can make a state subject to money damages if the state violates civil rights of individuals. And third, the federal government and the states waive their immunity in certain cases, such as tort cases. Additional Notes: States may remove actions against private citizens to federal court. The United States may initiate action against a state in federal court. One state may initiate action against another state in federal court. States may waive their Eleventh Amendment protection and allow private parties to initiate action in federal court, but this is a discretionary action. State sovereign immunity does not extend to municipalities within a state.
You can sue an irrevocable trust in any court as long as the claim is against the trust itself and not the individuals involved in the trust. A trust is considered a leg…al entity and property owned by it is subject to the trust's debts. The fact that it is a trust as opposed to a person or company makes no difference.
No. The Supreme Court, like all courts, is immune from lawsuits. If they weren't, people would be suing constantly (someone is always unhappy with the outcome of a case), whic…h would interfere with the justices' ability to make an impartial decision. There are enough obstacles standing in the way of impartiality already.
The maximum amount you can sue for in Small Claims court in Texas is $10,000, including interest. Small claims cases are generally heard by Justices of the Peace. Justices of …the Peace may also hear Justice Court cases, for which the jurisdictional limit is $10,000 exclusive of interest, and other civil suits.

The maximum you can sue for in civil court (small claims) varies by state. Check with you local civil court. Some states even have a maximum number of times you can sue a pers…on in a year...in case you decide to sue for say 3K now and another 3K later to get around the maximum amount.
Yes, you can sue anybody, anytime for just about anything. You may not win of course and if you have not finished bankruptcy proceedings, then any gain you have may be subjec…t to your bankruptcy filings. Generally, statute of limitations is 4 years, so finish the bankruptcy, then sue.
Yes. However, if you do not have a proper cause of action or federal court does not have jurisdiction, it will be dismissed.
