If the debt is legitimate, then the best option is to speak to the creditor and attempt to get a payment plan to pay the debt. You have 30 days from the date you are served to file a response with the clerk. If you don't, the party will be able to get a default judgment against you. Once the...Read more »
At 18 you are an adult so no, your dad doesn't get to punish you that way anymore. So just refuse to give him the money (how is he getting into your online account?) or maybe be smart and put it in a real bank where he can't get to it. However, if you do that, he may kick you out or...Read more »

You cannot expunge a DWI conviction from your NC criminal record. You used to be able to, but the expungement law was changed as of December 1, 2015. Hopefully, the legislature will revisit the law and revise it one day.

Is there any way to put these charges onto my juvenile record so that they... Read more »

None - you don't get to terminate your parental rights unilaterally. the easiest way for your rights to be terminated is for her to sucker the Army boyfriend into marrying her and adoption the child. It would require your consent but it would end your obligation to pay child support.
The body metabolizes alcohol at the rate of about 0.005 per twenty minutes. A different reading from the field test to the facility test should be shown. I am a healthy male 131 lb. and waited and hour before driving. If the equipment gave a false reading and scientifical the level should have... Read more »
Every body metabolizes alcohol differently based on a plethora of factors. The field or portable breath test is highly unreliable. Even the machine used at the station has a .02 +/- variance. But even if you were given the benefit of a .02 variance in your favor, you are still a full point above...Read more »
This really ought to be common sense for you but if mom owns or is otherwise in control of the house (ie via a lease) and mom said no - that's pretty much all you need to know.

Yes, unless your absence to care for your child is otherwise covered under the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA). The FMLA provides covered employees who work for covered employers with up to 12 weeks of leave for a serious health condition. Not all employers and not all employees are covered by...Read more »
It is possible but it requires the consent of the sheriff in what ever county he wants to transfer to.

Our 7 y.o. son was verbally and physically bullied at his school. We contacted his teacher, guidance counselor, Assistant Principal, Principal, Assistant Superintendent and the Superintendent.

For starters you could request an IEP and get a better place. There's usually no great answer on bullying. There should be a center in NC that deals with education law issues. The Education Law Center in Philadelphia might have the names of some NC organizations or where you can go to get such...Read more »
It likely depends on who owns the dog as to who gets to keep the dog. However, there may be some legal options so he should consult with a local attorney who can go over the situation in more detail and lay out his options.
Depends on what any Agreements or Court Orders already in place say. If you both have joint custody and there is nothing about being required to give each other consent / permission for medical procedures then - you likely don't have a case. I realize there's a new medical fad about not...Read more »
