Timur Akpinar's answer People use the terms loosely, but U.S. Constitution grants U.S. Courts authority to hear admiralty cases in Section 2 of Article III. In terms of maritime prosecutions, it is common for them to sometimes be handled jointly between the U.S. Department of Justice and U.S. Coast Guard, depending on the nature of the crime.
Charles Evan Lohr's answer A certified copy of the will and the probate file must be filed with the clerk of court in the county where the real property is located and an order or probate entered there. Depending on the county, there are sometimes es additional steps that must be taken. Feel free to co text me if you need assistance.
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.
Kirk Angel's answer Yes, he can lawfully fire you for leaving. In fact, whether you are paid hourly or salary, non-exempt or exempt, you can be fired for leaving if your employer expects or demands that you stay beyond your shift.
You mentioned a contract. If it is actually an enforceable employment contract, then there may be something in the contract that prohibits him from requiring you to stay over. If the contract does appear to address this issue, then you definitely consult with an experienced...
Timur Akpinar's answer Doing something like that could possibly lead to further legal problems. There aren't many details here about the underlying contract and transactions between you and the contractor. Whether you choose to try to resolve the matter through direct negotiations with the contractor or through an attorney is up to you, but one option you have is to consult with an attorney in North Carolina to review the terms of the contract, the work performed, the cause of the suspension of work, and to try to...
Kelli Y Allen's answer I highly advise having a full consultation with an immigration attorney. The U.S. does not recognize proxy marriages. If that is what occurred, you will have problems with immigration when you try to file the spousal petition.
Kelli Y Allen's answer To be eligible to apply for naturalization after 3 years of permanent residency rather than 5, you must have been married to and living with your U.S. citizen spouse for 3 years since becoming a permanent resident. If your spouse was an LPR part of the time, you must wait until it has been 3 years.
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.
Charles Evan Lohr's answer If an executor hasn't opened an estate after 8 months, then another family member or a beneficiary under the will can apply to have it opened. There are several steps that need to be followed to do it properly. Feel free to call me to discuss further.
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...
