I have an old debt with a landlord in Ohio from 2014. A judgement was issued in Ohio in2015. I completely forgot about, as I had zero communication with the debtor in the past 3 years. Now they got a bank levy and I have til May 1, 2019 to respond to a notice for a hearing or to claim why I... Read more »
This would be an easy problem to solve if it did not involve two separate states. If the bank levy was filed in the state of North Carolina you should hire a NC lawyer to help you. If the action was filed in Ohio, you need an Ohio lawyer. Do not try to defend against this levy without a lawyer.
Seriously? Has he been threatening you from jail? The man has been in jail and presumably without him even doing anything (because he hasn't been release yet) you want to heap a bit more misery and grief on him right out of the literal gate, in the form of a restraining order based on stuff...Read more »
You think you get to just roll thru another state and violate their laws? Really? Why limit it to your window tint? Why don't you go as fast as you want as well? I mean, how can they enforce speed limit laws against you being from out of state and all - you ought to be able to drive thru...Read more »
The creditor will have to have a Writ of Execution issued. Then the sheriff will have the authority to seize the house to satisfy the judgment. The timing depends on how soon the clerk can issue the writ and how fast the creditor gets it into the hands of the sheriff. The creditor may also object...Read more »
Ten years ago she had me arrested on trumped up charges. While I was in jail from 11/13/2007 to 1/8/2008 she took everything I owned and my kids and left the state of NC. Once she got settled in Illinois, she signed an affidavit of dismissal from the DA and I was relaeased. I filed for custody in... Read more »
I am really hoping that the real reason it appears you have done virtually nothing to see your children in ten years is that you simply did not have the financial resources to do so. If that is the case, there is certainly no shame in that (assuming you have also done whatever else you can to say...Read more »
I wanted to ask if it’s possible for someone to sue you for sleeping with their husband if you didn’t know? I didn’t know this guy was married and his wife messaged me on Facebook threatening to fight me and sue me. I read that it’s possible in North Carolina and I’m kinda scared. I’m only 19
I am afraid this question is too vague for any lawyer to be able to give it a meaningful response. Generally, agreements that are entered into based upon a fraud may be voided by the defrauded party. Also, generally speaking, a "settlement" between two parties is unlikely to abridge the...Read more »
we owned this vehicle for several years then gave it to my niece and she had it for about 6 months before the accident. Somehow control of the vehicle was lost and flipped over down into a ditch and exploded into flames. My niece's body was burned so bad they had to take dental records to... Read more »
In exchange for a base salary and no raise for 20 years my spouse and his parents had an agreement that he would one day own our home. My spouse had been the only resident since it was built until we got married approx 8 yrs ago and now we reside together. His parents refuse to sign over the deed... Read more »
Generally, under North Carolina's "Statute of Frauds", agreements to transfer real property have to be in writing and signed; however, there are sometimes exceptions to the Statute of Frauds. For example, when someone relies on a promise to their detriment, they might be able to...Read more »
Once a person files bankruptcy, there is automatic stay on all actions against the debtor. Your debt is more than likely covered by the bankruptcy, but an attorney would need to review your documents and the bankruptcy filings for confirmation of the status.
Whole family was harassed until I felt I had no choice but to move. Then he sold house. Now I hear of a drug habit and dealing conviction.He benefited from me not getting home as promised. There were also apts involved that we're going to be left to me. I was the manager. Was accused of... Read more »
I have no idea what 'estoofe' is. I suspect you mean estoppel but that's about as relevant in the situation you describe as 'estoofe' is. Bottom line you are just going to have to bite the bullet and consult with a local attorney who can review your circumstances in more...Read more »
Judge granted for judgement of possession (ruled in our) favor but tenant filed for bankruptcy on the 10th day (last day to appeal). Can I still file for a writ of of possession to remove from the property? (I know bankruptcy creates automatic stay but he filed after the judges ruling but before... Read more »
decided not valid threat after interviewing all parties, however our kid sees a therapist regularly for anxiety issues and this is greatly affecting him in both social and academic ways along with flare ups of anxiety over the threat (whether it was real or not, just because kid said he's...

From your description - I'd say its already resolved. If you are considering suing or think expulsion is appropriate - odds are you aren't really trying to resolve things peaceably. These days law enforcement and school administrators take these kinds of things likely too seriously so...Read more »
Yes. Judgments can be recorded as liens against any real property owned by the judgment debtor. If you bought a house in the same place were the judgment was entered, it is already a lien on the house.
We had been celebrating at our parent company overseas, but I went to bed. They continued. I was awaken by loud knocking on my hotel room door. They entered when I opened the door to see what the ruckus was. They stayed, emptied my honor bar and would not leave for 10-20 minutes. I was only... Read more »
I do not see an legal claim based on these facts alone. However, if there is a possible legal claim, you may have waived your right to relief if the severance agreement contained a "release of claims."
