  1. Okay, I am in a bit of a pickle regarding a false-diagnosis which has a major potential to mess up my future career. A month after turning 18 (2 years ago), I was kicked out of my parents house after years of metal-abuse from my father. Afterwards, being a dumb and naive child, I turned to the internet to find answers of what was going on in my life and why. Again, being incredibly naive, I thought there was something wrong and stumbled upon bipolar disorder and thought that somehow fit my situation (I will admit that I had no idea the severity of the disorder and symptoms). After arriving at college last year I went to see a psychiatrist, who after chatting with me for 20-30 mins, diagnosed me with it and sent me on my way with medication. Not once did she make sure I understood what the disorder was or how the symptoms prevent themselves. She took the judgement of an 18-19 yr old with an internet connection over proper tests and examinations. The medication messed with my system so much that it negatively affected my freshman year of college. I had to switch doctors because of insurance issues within a few months of initially seeing her, which is why I was thankfully able to come off of them before the current semester. After having time to settle into adulthood, mature, and recall it clearly, I now know that what I was feeling at 18-19 was normal for the situation I was in. But I now have a huge issue I need to fix. I am now majoring in Criminal Justice and have hopes of either going into law enforcement or practicing law. This issue can severely effect my chances of becoming an LEO. I am asking for advice on how to go about fixing this problem. I just want my records fixed, but have no idea what my options are or who to even contact in the first place. I apologize if this is confusing, I will try to clarify as best as possible if necessary.
  2. Last night I listed my car on Craiglist for sale. That night a man came to look at it and agreed to buy. The credit union I had a loan through never sent the original title when I paid off the car so I planned on going to the BMV to get a duplicate title on Monday. The man gave me $200 as down payment and asked that I take the listing down, which I did. The man wrote up a receipt with the car details stating that he paid $200 toward the total cost of $1800 and he still owes $1600. We both signed. Today, my father's car broke down and I would like to give the car to my father rather than selling it. I brought this up with the man that paid the down payment. I offered to give back the down payment with an additional $20 for the inconvenience. He refused and stated that the paper we signed was a contract. Can I back out of the sale? Is a receipt a contact? The paper I signed looked like this: 2004 Toyota Carolla Automatic/4 cylinder/FWD Mileage: 145,329 Sale price: $1800 Down payment: $200 Remaining balance: $1600 My signature His signature
  3. So i have an 81 chevy pickup, it's built for mudding and mud racing and is historically plated, but Ive been working on it and debating using it again. I was curious if the vehicle is possible to be used still with the historical plates for going mudding with a group of friends like we used to or to say take my daughter to her graduation. And if these historical plates cannot be used can it easily be reverted to normal plates

  6. I am a junior (16) and just recently moved to Ohio from New York in the summer. I was wondering and had the idea of going back to New York to finish my senior year with my friends in New York next year, however I doubt one of my parents would move back with me so I can attend my old high school in New York. I got the idea of living with one of my friends family so I can attend my senior year in New York, but as I did research I realized that my parent's mother must become my legal guardian. If anyone can help answer my questions it would be greatly appreciated: 1) Can my friends parent become a legal guardian INCLUDING my parents? 2) How long will this process usually take? 3) Financially, will my parents still be able to support me because they are not deceased (PS: I do have a credit card under my father's name I can use but I also have a job that allows me to make my own money)? 4) Since my parents live in Ohio and if this crazy plan allows me to live in New York for my senior year (2018-2019), will I still get in state tuition from the state of Ohio?
  7. My wife worked for a company for ten years. No issues, until she acquired Gastrointestinal paresis. She started getting very sick. Had Dr notes, excuses that led into time off work. All legally verified. That led into Family Protection Act. Along the way, she became harassed and zeroed out on things that weren't her fault. Mistakes made by others, including high up management, trying to blame her. She was fired one day. She went to a lawyer, was told they'd accept her case and also be able to get her workman's compensation , along with personal suffering, back pay. The law firm dropped the case, shortly after with no explanation. Its been since 2011. Is it too late to file again for a suite or workman's comp? Thank you.
  8. My mother was married to my Stepdad for a few years. They had one child together, my brother. My stepdad left, shortly after they divorced. He was ordered to pay child support and ran from state to state, trying to avoid paying. By the time my brother hit 18 yrs old, he owed my mother near $20,000. But the court, lowered the total, after 18, then by 21 years old, very little was owed her. My brother is 30 now. His dad passed away, a year ago. Is there any way my mom can still receive, back support owed? From his widowed wife or the State? Thanks for your help.

  14. Hello need some advice: I recently went to purchase a truck and found one I liked we did the deal through a financial inst. that approved me okay left the dealership with the truck a couple days later the check engine light comes on and I take it back so they can tell me whats wrong, they send me a text on what the mechanic said was minor and they will fix it in the mean time I have the back calling to verify the loan with a phone interview so if I'm happy they will proceed ( although I thought once he said everything is done )well I told them about the light and I'm not 100% sure I want it now. my reason is cause I had a similar exp. and it cost me big so I'm scared to buy something and a day later the lights are on. anyway it's Monday and I came to the conclusion I no longer want this truck I told the bank this when they called again to finalize the deal cause the dealership still has the truck...Now the dealership is telling me I don't get my $4000 down payment back and they will sue me for the remaining balance. What should I do ???????
  15. I'm remarried and I have 2 kids (7 & 8) from my first marriage. I have shared custody and am the residential parent, our vistation is Sunday to Sunday at 6. My husband also has 2 kids from 2 prior relationships. A 13 yr old who we have full custody and up until Tuesday of this week he hadn't seen or heard from his mom since 2008. My husband's younger child (9) was from his 1st marriage. We had basically standard rule visitation w him. He is w his mom otherwise. Recently, my husband got an OVI, and made the unfortunately poor choice of walking home after wrecking his car. So the police came to the house to arrest him. Long story short, they eventually issued a search warrant and got about 3/4 of an ounce of marijuana and a substantial amount of glass paraphernalia. There was NOBODY else at the house during this time. The younger kids were w their other parents and the oldest was with his grandma. I was even out of town. Because everything was in our bedroom I got charged too, but I got a lawyer and got my charges dropped. My husband's ex wife decided to stop all visitations w the 9 yr old. She then contacted the 13 yr olds mom who lives in WI (we're in Ohio) to file for full custody (which she did) and contacted MY ex husband who filed for emergency ex parta removal and to switch full custody to them. No lie, I'm scared. My kids are happy, well loved and not abused. But I'll certainly test dirty for marijuana. My bigger question is the ex wife, is there any way she can get in trouble for interfering like this? In the paperwork from my ex husband it narrates what she told them and a lot of it is wrong, she told my ex the 13 yr old was here.
  16. Hi, My friend passed away just last week and the hospital is holding onto his body trying to conduct a search for relatives. I've known this man for over 20 years and know him very well. His father died when he was young, his mother abused him and he was sent to an orphanage where he was never adopted. At some point his mother passed (don't know the exact date) He married 3 times sadly it never worked out and all 3 marriages ended with the wife re-marrying someone else. He did have 2 sons with the last ex-wife but were NOT blood-related to him and did not share his last name and also did not sign the birth certificates for them. I don't really care about his assets although they would help with carrying out his final wishes. I'm willing to pay out of my own pocket to make sure his final wishes are taken care of including the cremation expense. He told me he had a will in his cabinet at home and I believe he said another friend was the executor of the estate listed on it. His other friend will do the same thing with the body as I would but the apartment rental manager won't allow anyone into the building to access the paper. I am at a loss of what to do and I'm sure time is running out on claiming the body to make sure his final wishes come true. So to sum it up. I need access to his apartment but the local police say it's not something they can help with. I don't want the county to take the body and bury it somewhere when his wishes were to be cremated and separated. Some placed with an ex-lover's ashes that passed before him and some taken to a civil war battlefield and buried. My friend lived and passed away in Ohio. I'm begging for help for information on what to do. (edit added) My friend lived in Delaware County, Ohio was transported to Franklin County, Ohio to try and save his life but passed, I'm not sure what County would even get the remains or if it would be the state if no family claims them.
  17. Hello - I presented evidence at a small claims court hearing regarding my complaints against a small business in my town. Long story short, the court granted me a judgment in the amount of 2k plus interest and costs. Could I walk into the small business and ask the owner (defendant) to satisfy the judgment? In other words, write me a check? I was thinking of calling the town's sherriff and ask that he accompany me. Would any law preclude me from doing this? Or do I have to follow one of the long legal processes of garnishment of wages, attachment of bank account, levy on personal property, etc.? Please advise. Thank you!
  18. I had an account with Dominion East Ohio Gas Company for about a year at my apartment at the time. When I left the apartment I forgot to close the account and subsequently left the state. I did not know the account was being used until I started getting collection calls on the account. I've been in contact with both the gas company and they will not revoke the charges based on the information I've given. I'd like to move on to finding who it was that continued to use my account rather than registering their own, but the owner of the building will not provide me any information on the tenant who lived there after me. What should I do? Is this enough to qualify as fraud or identity theft? My credit has taken a serious hit because of this and I need help now.
  19. Hello all and thanks in advance for any help offered... Recently I was terminated from a job. Obviously I will have to put my former employer on a resume and list their contact information. My concern is what my former employer may disclose to future employers. Is it entirely up to their discretion as to what they say? Are there any limitations? Thanks very much for any help offered.

  21. We are selling a used car. We were trying to be kind and allowed payments to be made. My son is the lien holder on the title. The buyer has been remiss for 4 months on making any payments. We do have a signed contract and as of today he is in breach of this contract. When my son sent him a repossess notice, the buyer has informed us that he has changed the ignition, and he said good luck taking it. Now my son does not have a key to the vehicle. What rights do we have as title owner and what do we need to do to take repossession of his vehicle?
  22. A family member was in a single vehicle accident, but, he left the scene before cops arrived because he has no license. He called later and spoke to an officer. They asked for him to come in and give a statement in order to get the crash report finished and processed. I think he should seek the advice of an attorney before going, what's the best way to handle this besides the obvious bad decisions that were made! Any help would be appreciated!
  23. If you rented over 12 years can you claim ownership?
  24. I would like to file a pleading for federal intervention. synopsis: Party A sues Party B for being the cause for damages to property. Party B is summoned from Florida to Ohio to answer. However Party C has videos that show the cause for damages cannot possibly have been by party B and that the damages came from another upstairs tenant that was already sued by party A for the damages. The Court denies party c to becoming a party to the case so party C appeals to the Appellate hoping for "standing". The court does not wait for the appellate's decision and has party B unrepresented in a trial finding her guilty of causing damages (key word here is CAUSE, just as in the claim, that party b is the cause for damages). However the court awards the proceeds to party D who is not even a signer of the lease and is only in the capacity of the husband of party A. What federal law (or better yet, what constitutional clause) would party C be classified as to be able to finish the pleading for federal intervention? Party C has videos AND OTHER EVIDENCES AND WITNESSES to show it's impossible for party B to be guilty of what is alleged by party A. or for more info Thanks to anyone that can help
