In April of 2022 my wife took our dog to a kennel we had been to before. It was apparently under new ownership and they required a release to be signed. My wife did not read the document before signing and our dog was allegedly involved in an altercation with another dog, who was injured and... Read more »
To determine whether a document is a legally binding contract, you must show it to an attorney. This sounds like an indemnification agreement that requires your wife to indemnify (compensate) the kennel if it's sued by the third party. A "release" by your wife would release the...Read more »
Two major issues remain, ceiling finish (not flat, obvious ridges at seams), and tile floor not level. Both of these issues were reported within the warranty period and agreed to be repaired.

I would encourage you to speak with a Florida Estate Planning Attorney and consider possibly creating a Revocable Trust, the options you have mentioned are problematic because of your dad's second marriage and because your son is so young.

Florida doesn't have income tax. So, the question remaining is whether you still have to pay income tax to North Carolina. Probably not, but to be sure you should ask this question in Justia > Ask a Lawyer > North Carolina > Tax Law.
What is the procedure now that the appeals court lifted the stay, does a new writ need to be issued, do I get re-served or am I basically going to have the sheriff come anytime now to throw my stuff out, I have movers scheduled day after tomorrow so I don’t need much time but wanted to know if I...

If the stay has been lifted, the original writ can now be enforced by the sheriff. No new writ has to issue or be served. The sheriff will show up when the landlord schedules the writ to be executed. It could be any day now that the stay is lifted.

You actually raise a couple different issues here. 1. Can Court documents available on PACER lawfully be disclosed on social media? Yes, because they're public records, and the fact that the discloser is a lawyer who is not on your case is irrelevant. 2. Can someone lawfully make fun of you...Read more »

Whether by your agreement or not, you need to ask the court to change the order and return custody to you. The rest of your questions will resolve after you take...Read more »

Interesting issue, which I don't have expertise in, but my somewhat-educated guess is: Regarding the issue of disclosure itself, without regard to whether it causes damage to the corporation, the answer to your question may depend on whether your corporation has a written confidentiality...Read more »
