He has cousty of his 4 year old son who is a us citizen. Is there anything that can be done to keep him here

Kelli Y Allen answered on Jan 13, 2019

The answer depends on numerous factors such as: what he was charged with, whether he has been convicted, whether he has an ICE hold (or has been referred immigration court), and, if so, whether he has any form of relief for which to apply. That would depend on criminal record, how long he has been... Read more »

Q: Ive reason to believe fiance is involved in ficticuous lawsuit vs Bedford, Bedford County, VA along w his ex. Ive ??

What do I do? Who do i contact?

Richard Sternberg answered on Apr 11, 2018

If by fictitious, you mean that he is lying to you about whether there is a lawsuit, that is pretty easy to check these days. Most courts have their dockets on line indexed by party names.

If you mean that an existing suit is a fraud, I’m sure the Commonwealth Attorney in the county...

Q: Can you ask what evidence has been brought against you ?

Richard Sternberg answered on Feb 22, 2018

You can ask anything. But, before any lawyer can tell you whether the you will be entitled to discovery, the lawyer needs to know much more information than you have provided. And, if the evidence to which you refer might lead to a criminal charge, it would be extraordinarily stupid to publish... Read more »

Q: Advice

The person who owns the Bronosonic trademark is taking money from people online for neon signs via Neon Signs in US and not shipping them out. The address they've listed on their website doesn't exist and I've tracked the IP address of their emails to China. Can you help?

Richard Sternberg answered on Jan 22, 2018

It depends on the contract. If you have the right to sue in the US, you might get a default judgment and then execute on the trademark, though that will be complicated. You might then be able to get a restraining order on the web server advertising your trademark, and then go into the Bronosonic... Read more »

Q: I have designed a shoe I'd like to have manufactured mass production Italy. Which contraction is most appropriate ?

I have heard 'Product Development Agreement' 'Manufacturing Contract' 'Supply Contract'. Which is most neccesary and should I have an Italian speaking lawyer draft it in italian ?

Will Blackton answered on Dec 8, 2017

The title of a contract is not as important as what's in it. What's in the contract will depend on your desires and requirements and the manufacturer's desires and requirements. If North Carolina law will control the document, English seems like a sensible choice; if Italian law, then drafting it... Read more »

Amanda Bowden Houser answered on Sep 12, 2017

It sounds very much like you want to break our laws and scoot back to the UK without consequence. If so, you likely can as it is highly unlikely the State of North Carolina will bother to hunt you down for a speeding ticket.but doing so would demonstrate incredibly poor character on your part.

Richard Sternberg answered on Jun 7, 2017

You are asking the wrong people. This is a board for legal questions. You are asking a law enforcement question. Contact the police.

But, I will tell you that on-line scams are very interesting to the FBI. The problem is that the email locations are often untraceable and land someplace...

Q: Can green card holder marry with international student in North Carolina?

Holly A Wilcox answered on Feb 26, 2017

Immigration status does not affect whether or not two people can get married. The normal marriage requirements will still apply -- you can't be married to someone else, you have to be old enough to get married, etc. However, if the question you are asking is can the green card holder sponsor the...
