The beginning of the measuring period is the date you knew, or should have known, of the wrong. It is generally 36 months for contracts and civil lawsuits. There are exceptions: in some cases measuring years are shorter (one year for assault and battery) and longer (12 years) for contracts under seal; until age 34 for sexual abuse; and other exceptions as well. The issue is fact-specific. Terry Nolan 410-242-9177

Do you have a copy of what form you signed? The servicing company will provide a copy if you ask. Once you get it and read it, is it a Plus loan guaranty form? Is it your signature on it? Can you read and write the English language? Did you read the form before you signed it? Did you have the opportunity to read it, even if you did not choose to read it at that time. Did someone put a gun to your head and tell you, "Either your signature or your brains are going to be on that contract in...

Were the returns filed ontime? Did you ever ask for an extension? Are the returns more than 3 years old? This is a complex question that will require facts. Consult with a B/R attorney in person.

You have two options: 1. Go and see what happens; if you make it 6 months in GA before your Husband files in Maryland, he would have to file in GA; 2. File a Motion in the Maryland Court seeking Court permission to move to GA. It will likely be granted, since it is just as easy to book a flight to GA as it is to book a flight to BWI.

Under Maryland law, you can be filed with or without cause, at any time. You need to check Ohio law and see if there are better laws for you. Did they pay you what they owed you? If not, you may be able to recover that money.

Generally yes, although if you object to it, the introducing Party will have to lay a foundation for it. See, e.g. Bill Cosby, convicted, according to one Juror because of a deposition that was taken in a civil case years before.

Terrence M. Nolan's answer
Are you over 18? How old is your sister? Are you employed? How have you done as guardian? You can file in the Circuit Court where you live and seek custody. The Judge will make a decision based on the best interests of your sister. Dad can be served in jail quite easily.

Terrence M. Nolan's answer
Check the wording of the Court Order carefully, it only applies to the Party stated therein, and only requires them to do what is stated. In other words, if only you filed for contempt against her, then the Order that arose from that would likely only apply to her, unless the Court ordered otherwise. If she fails to timely comply, file a Motion to Enforce Contempt Order and the Judge will act to protect your interests. Good Luck.
