Co-signing is ALWAYS a bad deal. By co-signing, you are in essence telling the lender "go ahead and make the loan because if the primary borrower does not pay, I will." And if a person needs a co-signer it means that he either has no credit or more likely, bad credit, and that you are...Read more »

Yes, there is a statute of limitations. It is three (3) years for most things in NC. Your ability to prevail in a lawsuit here is problematic (note I did not say impossible - I said problematic). (1) Contracts by storage facilities generally allow the storage facility owner to enter a storage...Read more »
My ex and I were married for 10 years and he spent the better part of it in prison. I left in 2006 and his son lived with me for nearly 4 years. I struggled to keep a roof over our heads and food on the table. I did open two lines of credit during that time frame out of desperation. The ex and I... Read more »
You are confusing things. A creditor can only garnish if there is a money judgment. So if a creditor is garnishing, it means there is a judgment against you. The statute of limitations only applies to the amount of time in which a creditor can bring a lawsuit after your debt is last paid. That...Read more »
PACER (it stands for public access to court records). Unfortunately, you have to have an account.

As long as there are arrears, they can be enforced like a money judgment on steroids. Wages can be garnished, bank accounts levied, tax refunds intercepted, licenses can be suspended and assets could be attached. How much money did you have in the bank?
Yes and no. You have to first terminate the biological parents' parental rights. If they will not consent, then you have to bring involuntary termination proceedings under OCGA § 15-11-260 - § 15-11 - 323.
The surviving wife of an "owner" of burial rights, my mother, wrote a letter to the cemetery in 2004 "assigning" the right of burial to me and my wife. In 2005, she drafted a will that bequeathed her entire estate to my sister. The cemetery burial rights are not named... Read more »
A will only disposes of assets that a person owns as of the date of their death. If they have already given away property and they make a will and then die the will does not affect property that is already disposed of. Same thing if people make a will and give a gift to someone in the will and...Read more »
We went to land sale on Sat. and signed contract but when we got home and I started calling around all the banks said they do not do land deal. We were buying this for investment opportunity but it looks like we will not be able to sell it later on.
If our offer is then accepted, can we ask to see the other offer to verify that he was being truthful and not just pulling a fast one to get us to bid above the asking price ? BTW - This property is in North Carolina.
And the question is? How exactly is that your husband can dictate whether or not you are entitled to alimony?
