    Amy - The way you present the issues makes it impossible to determine if someone is spouting and you are just C&Ping or if you are answering questions asked.

      Amy -

      The way you present the issues makes it impossible to determine if someone
      is spouting and you are just C&Ping or if you are answering questions
      asked. For that matter, it appears that you are throwing this stuff out for us.

      Not knowing who wrote what, I write this to everyone - If he has only been
      here for NINE years and his youngest is FOURTEEN, it is obvious tome, at
      least, that he came from Honduras with 14 yr old Chris, Elva and one other.
      Shoot, with 2 women and 5 children, he probably moved to the US to work as
      the only way to make enough to support some of them. Regardless, none of
      them are Americans and I'm still curious as to whether or not Elva and
      Chrissie were here lawfully. Which type of work VISA did he have?

      a. Age of decedent (60)
      Shouldn't be an issue: working adult. and surviving children,

      all but one are over the age of majority;
      Not sure what this means legally, but I would think it would be helpful to
      his involvement in their lives. For all I know, the death could be
      perceived by children to be a blessing.

      b. Decedent was not a United States citizen but is from Honduras and was
      here under a work visa;
      If work visa was legal - not an issue, could even be a plus given today's
      illegal immigrant national debate

      c. Decedent was gainfully employyed andworked as a maintenance man at the
      Same job for 9 years earning $32,000.00 per year;
      A plus

      d. Decedent was not married to either of the survivors’ two mothers;
      This could be a problem. Did he ever live with the mother and family in
      Honduras? Why is that family still in Honduras: he left them, they divorced
      and he subsequently moved to US, he has family here and in US, concurrently?
      Did he financially support both families? Was he involved in the raising
      of the children?

      e. Two of the five survivors reside in Honduras;
      Assuming the 33 and 34 year old (indicates he had a family in H, he and
      the mother split and he moved to US. If different, as a juror I would need to
      know the story inorder to determne what and how much compensaon awarded).
      Was he involved in raising the children? Was he still involved in their
      lives, what is evidence of their dependence on him? What is evidence of their
      parent-child relationship?

      f. Two of the five survivors require an interpreter along with the mother
      of the two youngest children (Elva Sanchez) with whom decedent resided;
      Not an issue for me.
      and
      g. The youngest child, Chriss Matute, age 14, is still dependent on his
      father and lived at home he currently resides with his mother, Elva Sanchez.
      Was he living with Elva? If not,why not? What is evidence of dependence on
      father: material, guidance, support, etc.? What evidence of child's
      perception of father?

      Are the mother's plaintiff's? If not, why not, particularly Elva? E.G.,
      did he come to US to seek work to support H's family, then became involved
      with Elva, resulting in two families? How will both sides present this
      situation?

      What questions do you have in order to answer these questions.
      thanks again,

      Was M intending to bring either of the two in H's to the US? If so,
      compensate? Was Elva met in US or Honduras?
