The fourteenth amendment does not apply to any sort of "bank debt" per se--European or otherwise. The fourteenth amendment--among many other things--protects all individuals subject to the Constitution--and certain entities--from a state government "taking" of property without "due process of law."...Read more »
After work I visit my boyfriend at his apartment complex. My boyfriend owns the apartment and his HOA says nothing about not being able to have guests daily. I used the vistor parking.

A New Hampshire attorney could advise best, but you await a response for three weeks. Unfortunately, if you hired legal representation, the costs would exceed your damages, with no guaranteed outcome. You could look into small claims court in your county. Good luck

Yes you will get a portion of the value if the divorce action is brought in NH. You should speak with an attorney so that you can explain exactly where your husband is in the process. Also you should bring any written documentation regarding the pension negotiations and disability.
My wife is being disciplined at work for caring for our daughter during the school shut downs during the corona virus pandemic. She is also being disciplined for missed time for past absences. NH is in a state of emergency as well. Is there any protections in place for parents to care for their... Read more »
Currently, there is no federal law providing protection for your wife's job in this circumstance, assuming that your daughter is not ill and only out of school because of the shut down. Congress is in the process of passing legislation that may impact this. You should consult an employment...Read more »
My friend got charged with this while incarcerated, I'm not exactly sure what this means, if he was in possession of drugs, or if someone gave him drugs or what exactly happened & I can not ask him because he is in the hole. Thank you for any help!
The Fair Labor Standards Act does not require employers to offer a specified amount of hours (or overtime hours) to employees, so employers are free to reduce the hours for your position, and unfortunately, you do not have any legal recourse here.
If you submit the FORM I-485 with USCIS or the DS-260 with the National Visa Center you do not impact your existing J-1 or J-2 status but you will not be eligible to receive the non- immigrant J-1 or J-2 visas again in that you have expressed an intent to immigrate to the U.S.
My partner and I are starting a rally company, an exotic auto enthusiast adventure. We came up with the name Apex Rally, and come up with a great logo. We fell in love with it and could really see the company coming to life in our minds. We just discovered a company in a different state (New York),... Read more »
The answer to your question involves a bit more than name comparison. At least trade channels, zone of natural expansion, and use of the senior mark should also be considered. If you are starting a business, it is a good idea to engage an IP attorney to complete a clearance search for the name and...Read more »
Depends on how the contract is written. Does the contract set a specific duration of time for which the employee will be employed under the contract? I would reach out to an Employment Lawyer in your state to go over the employment contract you are offering. I recommend having an understanding of...Read more »

Moved states and need a new ID but my birth certificate has my first/middle names switched (I never caught this). All legal documents use my middle name (for 85 yrs now). DMV suggests I change entire name to match SS card exactly and then apply for new birth certificate. But will state put my... Read more »
You have a few options here. The first option is to do nothing. It is quite common for an individual to "go by" his or her middle name or a nickname his or her entire life. Just accept the new id with your name as shown on your birth certificate. Your friends can still address you by your...Read more »
A New Hampshire attorney could advise best on this, as insurance coverage is generally governed by state specific-elements. But your question remains open for two weeks. The problem with such a legally broad term is that it could be defined in more than one way, depending on the statute and...Read more »
In October a new manager was introduced to my store when the old one moved up. New Manager = NM. Old Manager = OM. NM was disliked from the start due to staring at young, female employees, disregard for personal space, and yelling at the staff. He’s also on thin ice for messing up payroll & other... Read more »
Hopefully you kept the tape, or the OM will back up your claim. You should call Human Resources right away. You can file a sexual harassment claim with the Human Rights Commission online and they will perform an investigation. Good Luck!
