AIDS and Other Medical Issues

I recommend you have a complete physical examination as soon as possible. As a result of such an examination, one of my clients discovered she had a medical condition that would normally not have been diagnosed and would have been fatal if it was not treated. She underwent an expensive series of treatments. The cost of these treatments will be part of her case. If you have cancer or other medical problems, it can dramatically affect your case.

Your examination should include an HIV test. If you suspect your spouse may have been exposed to the AIDS virus or a sexually transmitted disease, you must have yourself tested. Your exposure is not only to your spouse but to everyone who had sex with anyone who had sex with your spouse. The most frequent avenue of exposure is sexual contact. However, that is not the only means of contracting AIDS; exposure to blood is also a risk. Therefore, spouses of physicians, dentists, undertakers, or any medical workers have a special concern. Consult your physician and let us know the results of any test.

    ““I retained Ms. Pfenson last year to fight a motion to modify custody. She is very personable, responsive, and easy to talk to. Seems unusual to find that combination of skills and qualities but Ms. Pfenson has them. I would recommend her to anyone dealing with a family law matter. I feel very confident having her on my side. She plays to win. Highly recommend her.”
