USC is not a State law. "USC" stands for United States Code, which is Federal law. I cannot tell which US Code section you are referring to because you did not include the first section (--UCS----). However, there is no law, State or Federal, that requires a down payment to puchase a...Read more »

There is no process. People can write or call the immigration authorities. I suggest that you and your wife make sure you have proof of the marriage to submit. This include things like copies of leases with both your names, joint bank accounts and so on. You have to prove that your marriage is real.
Yes, you still have to pay your rent. NC law does not allow tenants to withhold rent. If you do not pay rent, the current owner can sue you for the rent money (even though he has apparently not paid the mortgage). Since you are month to month, he can also terminate your lease with as little as 7...Read more »
You never have to change your name if you don't want to. I would actually advise against it. I have seen how much paperwork you have to go through, and unless you really want to change your name, I wouldn't do it.
If both of you are on the lease then the likely answer is yes the landlord would have to evict you as well. As always you should take your documents to a local lawyer and have them review the documents to get a more complete answer.
I had a loan from a bank in Tifton, GA. I paid as promised until I lost my job. Even then I paid them $ 3,000 in Aug of 2013. At that time I asked for the debt to be forgiven.

You need to hire a lawyer in Georgia ASAP to handle this for you. If you do not answer, a default judgment will be entered against you, and you lose your right to plead your statute of limitation defense. Some loan contracts are signed "under seal", which gives a 10 year statute of...Read more »

We have been going to them for over a year with zero complaints. The manager says my dog hurt himself. They were rude and refuse to help me understand.

A rotten tree fell on our house from the wooded lot adjoining our property. Since the damage was minimal, a little over $400, we did not make a claim with our insurance company and paid for the tree removal and gutter repair out of pocket. Can we receive compensation from the owner of the property... Read more »
Depends on whether or not the owner of the land had actual knowledge of the rotten tree. In NC you are only responsible for a tree falling if you knew that there was a likelihood of it falling, for example, it was leaning or rotten.
This truck has been sitting in my parking spot for a long time on my property. I havent made the payment in over a month. I haven't been contacted via email,text, call, or mail. I'm wondering if it would be possible to keep the truck after it been there for so long. (Storage lien or... Read more »
