Amanda Bowden Houser's answer Bite the bullet and hire a local traffic attorney. You don't need F. Lee Bailey for a traffic ticket - not even for 30+ over & C&R. So just pick the cheapest attorney out of the many solicitation letters you received and roll with that. Oh, and stop speeding! Even if your speedometer was completely broken, at 30+ over - you knew you were going too fast.
Amanda Bowden Houser's answer The best way to handle it is for her to do right and work with you to allow visitation that doesn't come with strings attached in the form of control or lectures - that's free for both of you. However, since she is likely not going to do right - the next best thing is for you to hire an attorney and force her to do right. Since she can not afford an attorney, it shouldn't cost you too much to put her in her place.
Amanda Bowden Houser's answer You should never pay off a ticket - even if you are allowed to do so. Lucky for you your ticket is likely a criminal traffic citation which prevents you from doing what dum dum's do which is simply pay it off. And of course you can not transfer a traffic ticket to a court closer to you for your convenience. Just hire a traffic attorney in the area where you got the ticket and be done with it. If your address on your ticket is correct, you should get a crap ton of letters from local traffic...
Amanda Bowden Houser's answer I am concerned that you don't know what to do in this situation and yet could still potentially be licensed to drive. When you have car trouble - you call a mechanic. When you have legal trouble (and this is most definitely legal trouble) - you call an attorney. In your case a traffic attorney in the area where you got the tickets. Best of luck.
Amanda Bowden Houser's answer If you got divorced without being separated for one year, then you and / or your spouse likely committed fraud and possibly felony perjury. While a separation agreement is required to be notarized to be valid in North Carolina, there is no requirement that you have a separation agreement at all. So unless you asked for and were granted equitable distribution in your divorce (which is likely fraudulent) - you now are likely not entitled to anything and are barred from any further remedy other...
Amanda Bowden Houser's answer You hire a local traffic attorney. If the address on your ticket is correct you will likely get a crap ton of letters from traffic attorneys. You do not need F. Lee Bailey for a traffic ticket so pick the cheapest one and roll with that.
Amanda Bowden Houser's answer You need an attorney, as how you are describing things makes no sense. If your are living together and she has filed a divorce from bed and board - she is essentially asking the court to kick you out. And if you don't hire an attorney ASAP she may very well prevail.
Amanda Bowden Houser's answer Essentially, a deceased person could have taken any number of incredibly simple steps legal and / or illegal to ensure his or her surviving spouse gets absolutely nothing upon his or her death but cutting the surviving spouse out of a will is not one of them. So if the surviving spouse is domiciled in NC and finds they have been cut out of or inadvertently omitted from a will, the surviving spouse is allow to claim an "elective share" as set forth in simple layman terms directly in NCGS §...
Amanda Bowden Houser's answer A holographic or handwritten will is valid in North Carolina. All that is required is that the testator be at least 18 and of sound mind and that the will be entirely handwritten and signed by the testator - no witnesses or notary are required (but they are recommended). It is not recommended that you do a will this way as it is just an complete invitation for disaster but it is allowed by state law.
Amanda Bowden Houser's answer Yes, it can. Which is why you should have called to police yourself at the scene. If the FRSAA is all you get charged with it will likely get dismissed if you can show proof that your insurance company covered the other person's damage. In the future - trust no one.
Amanda Bowden Houser's answer If you can afford to pay child support you can afford to have an attorney help. Ms. Averett has provide an excellent suggestion. One thing is for sure, you may have to prove yourself to a Judge but you do not have to prove yourself to the mother - she does not get to dictate or control what visitation you are allowed with your child unless you allow her to do so. Best of luck.
Amanda Bowden Houser's answer You need to be separated for at least a year to be eligible for divorce in NC. At this point you likely need to consult with a local family law attorney who can review your situation in more detail and lay out your options for you. Best of luck
Amanda Bowden Houser's answer You do what most every other teenager has done since time immemorial - keep your head down, your mouth shut and your nose clean (figuratively speaking) and respectively muddle through til you are 18 and then you can do whatever you want. If you want to go the emancipation route, you have to prove to a Judge that you are the equivalent of a mature self sustaining adult - something you very likely are not able to do (nor likely will be at 18 either).
