  1. Failure to maintain computer records causing catastrophic results.. Hello, I have been a United States Citizen since birth in 1972 and I have no known legal issues except a few minor traffic violations that have long since evaporated.. I am curious what I should do since the Identity Verification Service has the habit of slanderously and secretly reporting that I do not exist? Since 1990 I have not appeared on their reports.. It is obvious to me, an unemployable database programmer, that they fail to keep diligent records of my existence in order to save a few bucks in there initial coding for long names like Harrison and for Incremental names like John Harrison II and later to avoid fraud charges invoked because they made an insane profit at the expense of citizens with out allowing knowledge of the potential error and even without knowledge of the existing harm done.. Unknown harm done?? How many people that apply for a job and fail to get it even get a call back from potential employers?? How often do women, approached by an untraceably named identity on a dating service, stop the service from illegally eliciting funds from the untraceable identity?? It took me 25 years of my life, 4 Computers, 2 cars, 25 years in poverty, 25 years living under my mothers mentally challenged dictatorship, a bachelors degree in science with mathematics, with study of computer science, many courses in psychology, acceptance of less than perfect potential relationship partners, 1000s of failed relationship interviews, 1000s of destroyed resumes, many perfect 'failed' interviews, years of psychological worth therapy, Living on Medicare and Medicaid, mental instability that resulted in a jump through a glass window and 40 foot drop to cement below, lost mobility, heinous scars, and the government forcing the "record keepers" to give free web access to citizens so I figure this all out.. Who do I take to court first and what do I do now??
  2. I have a neighbor who has 5 huge trees on his property. He will not rake his leaves until they are all off the trees and the majority are on my property. He is never considerate enough to at the very least, assist me in raking his leaves. The roots of the trees have created extensive damage to my front lawn and because we are in rainy Georgia, my grass and soil have washed away and only bare patches of red mud and large puddles remain. For years, I have requested he cut the limbs down because the tree in front is covering the street light and that is a safety issue. I've even suggested he call the City and they would more than likely cut the branches. I have also requested he do something about the trees, because two of them are leaning towards my house and because the roots are rising above ground, they should be maintained somehow. He ignores me and tells me to cut them. I cannot afford to do that on a fixed income. He also stated (in a very snarky voice) that if they did fall on my home, I would be responsible for the damage, not him. Do I have any rights in this situation? He is very aware of the danger of the trees falling, but has no concerns. I would appreciate ANY help you can provide. Thank you in advance.
  3. My super fast 3 year old, gothe stuck with a dirty needle sticking his hand in an accessible, unsecured bio hazard sharp container. The container was stored on the nurse's desk and was missing the lift lid. My 3 year old, after 9.5 hours in the er, 5 tubes of blood and a IV inserted, the start of HIV/hepatitis prevention meds which he has to stay on for at least 28 days. Do I need to contact an attorney and/or do I have a case?
  4. PART 1: Hubby tried to surprise me with a 2 seater by trading in my 4 seater. When he realized I didn't want the 2 seater he tried to cancel the deal. The dealership refused to do so. They made him trade in the 2 seater (he never took posession of - dealership was still waiting on a wheel for the 2 seater at that very moment) for my 4 seater that was still in my garage at $8,000 over payoff. 1) could they force the sale if he never took posession fo the 2 seater 2) what is the law in Georgia when it comes to taking posession of a "contracted" vehicle PART 2: My name was primary on the title,, loan and registration for the 4 seater (hubby 2nd). However, the trade-in process and (as rediculous as it sounds) re-purchase of the car I was still driving (the 4 seater) never involved my signature. In fact, the 4 seater that used to be in my name and my husband's name is now titled and financed in my husband's name ONLY! 1) is the trade-in valid if I never gave consent 2) was this a legal process 3) was my name required to transfer title in the 1st process - the trade-in 3) what is the law in Georgia when it come to transferring title of a jointly owned vehicle Lastly, the dealership is now asking me to sign a Power of Attorney! Which I refuse to do. After all, the dealership says my husband had a legal right to sell my 4 seater without my consent. I know...this is a mess!

  10. Mother in law has been asked for a divorce by spouse after 25 years of marriage. The couple have not lived together since 2006. My father in law has met someone else, and wants the divorce. My mother and law has the disease Lupus and cannot work. He is offering only $250 for two years. Does this sound reasonable and should she get legal representation? Any help is appreciated.

  11. I received a letter on Feb. 02, 2015 which stated that my tax refund was taken because of student loans. I was really depending on this money to help with my current situation. My husband has not worked in about two years because of his disability. He's seeing a lawyer and has had an court appearance and we're waiting for a decision. His medical assistant has come to a halt and his meds are expensive. I work part time and barely bring home $500.00 a month. We have two children in the house with us and supplying all of our needs has become a strain on me. We are about to be in the dark, my lender came to repoo my truck from work. I have to come up with 687.00 to catch them up or they're coming to get it in 15 days. We barely keep food on the table. I can go on and on.....I really needed this money!!!! Is there any help for me?
  12. I am a Credit manager for a small to medium sized staffing agency. Two years ago, a local company that sells & distributes kitchen countertops called & wanted us to provide some temporary help in their warehouse, which we did. There were no issues surrounding our transactions & the customer seemed please with the quality of labor being provided. Then, we get a call from our customer, asking us to pull our temps. No reason was given as to why we needed to pull them, but we pulled them per request. As is usual & customary in our industry, no credit applications or service agreements were completed. We generated the last invoices with N30 terms & waited on payment. Fast forward to today: Nothing has been done to collect on the balance of about $2.7k. I'm three weeks into my position as Credit Manager & need some help! I cant find any publically available information that shows if the purchasing company purchased the assets & liabilities, or only purchased the assets. The new owners are Canadian & are currently operating the location under their name. Do we have any recourse to collect at all? Please advise....and thanks!

  14. I am launching a business that will license the right to produce art on canvas. Are there legal implications to licensing art from foreign (non-US) artists? I plan to have a basic template contract that will give me non-exclusive rights to reproduce select pieces of art for a limited time period. Can I just use the same contract for artists based outside of the US? Can I just issue payment to them via paypal or do I need to "import" in some way despite the fact that there is no physical product? Thank you!
  15. Can a coerced statement be used to file domestic battery CHARGES?
  16. Hello, I live in Atlanta. I bought a sofa from an online retailer. The photo of the sofa showed a light tan-colored sofa, which I was looking for. The name of the sofa was the Sage Amie Sofa. The site said the sofa would be shipped on 12/22/14. After I'd purchased the sofa, I went online to look at other items from the company that made the sofa. In my search, I realized that the word "sage" in the name was the color of the sofa. Sage is a green color and the sofa was in no way green in the photo. I don't want a green sofa, so I sent an email about two days later (12/9) to the company where I purchased it and said I wanted to cancel it because it was green, not the tan pictured in the photo. They said they'd check with the manufacturer to make sure it was indeed green. A few days go by, and I hadn't heard from them. I'd done more checking, looking for photos of this "sage" sofa, and I knew I didn't wnat it. I sent another email saying please cancel this, I don't want a green sofa. A few more days later, on 12/14, they reply and tell me the sofa was sent and has been delivered. News to me. Sure enough, there are the two, one-hundred pound boxes on my neighbor's porch. They'd been there since Friday, 12/12. I had no idea. I never received notice that the sofa was shipped. The site said shipping would be on 12/22, with no disclaimer that the date was approximate. Now they won't do anything. I want them to pick up the sofa and return my money, but I can't get them to return my emails. The sofa has been sitting on the porch of my neighbor (it's a house that's been turned into apartments; I live in the back, and my neighbor lives in the downstairs apartment in the front with the porch.) for over a week now. And it rained a lot last night. I have no idea what to do. Can you please help me? Thank you!
  17. I have a judgement from the magistrate court against some former renters that tore the rental house up. I filed for their wages to be garnished, however, they filed Chapter 7 bankruptcy. Is this a debt that can be discharged? If I am reading right it is not, as it would fall under "any court or administrative order for any damages, fine, penalty, citation, restitutionary payment, disgorgement payment, attorney fee, cost, or other payment owed by the debtor". I am not sure what other information is pertinant, but I do live in Georgia, and have not yet spoken with an attorney. I'm unsure if I need one, as their attorney did not do a very good job in court.
  18. My brother found out his hearing was scheduled on Monday, Nov 9th from an outside source, but his lawyer has not notified him as of yet. Has his lawyer not heard yet? How long does it take for the lawyer to find out? Is this normal? Thank you!
  19. In a nutshell we just finished the discovery phase of a med mal case in which our doctor failed to send my 39 week and 1 day, type 1 diabetic, pregnant wife to the hospital after 2 failed NST's which led to the stillborn death of our son just 3 days later. Everyone has been deposed and the defense attorney has reached out to our attorney and advised that they are 'interested in resolving the case through mediation'. My questions are, because the defense has reached out to our attorney and are seeking resolution... A. Is this normal procedure for defense to, in our opinion, admit guilt by looking to resolve (settle) through mediation? B. Can we assume that because the defense wants to resolve this that we can expect a decent settlement as they don't want it to see the inside of the courtroom? Thanks in advance for the insight!
  20. Our 90 year old mother owns her home in GA. My brother (known here as Tim) has lived with her for over 20 years. My brother's son (known here as Van) (31) has been in and out of her home many times, always on a temporary basis. Neither Tim nor Van contribute financially, and a signed lease agreement has never existed. Van is not employable due to psychotic and destructive behavior. He started huffing at an early age, has done drugs for the major part of his life, and in the last five years has damaged property at my mother's house on several occasions. They have called 911 when he becomes destructive and they have a legitimate fear for their own safety. When the police arrive, they talk to Van, who turns on his "calm, sweet side" and jokes around with the police so they do not see the true picture. They take him to the local hospital and he is out in a day or two. He has been taken to jail on a few of these occasions. He was admitted to a drug rehab program but was able to leave. He always finds his way back to our mother's house, even walking long distances to get there. Our mother feels helpless in this situation because Van has broken his relationships with all family and friends so no one else will help him. Last week, he returned from the hospital and broke into our mother's house. The police were called again last week because of violent and destructive behavior - broke the window out of the car. The police told Tim that they could not call them any more because it would cause my mother to be evicted from her home if they called again. We need advice on how to handle this ridiculous situation.
  21. 7 years ago, my neighbor planted Bamboo Trees along his >> property line. The Bamboo is pervasive and has grown over on our >> property. We have to rent "BOBCATS" to dig it out. Do we have any >> recourse to him for our time and expenses?
  22. Ok, my brother has a bad attorney who doesn't explain much and is very hard to get a hold of. He told my brother that his wife has scheduled a hearing. That is was standard for the person who filed for the divorce to do. Question: If there is already a settlement agreement filed with the clerk's office, why would there even be a hearing? Haven't they already settled on everything by both of them signing it? There were no other un-resolved issues. When my brother asked why everything was taking so long, ie the final decree, his lawyer told him that his wife needed more time to get her papers together. Thank you.
  23. Hello. If both parties have signed the divorce papers and have been submitted to the county clerk, can one party withdraw their papers before they are finalized? Thank you!
  24. Hi there! When child support was initially calculated, it was done incorrectly while drawing up the divorce papers. The lawyer who was incorrect admitted that it was wrong as well. But, then that lawyer said that the wrong amount could not be legally changed because the two parties agreed to it in an email before the mistake was even known. Bound by their email, so to speak, even if it was incorrect because of the lawyer. Does this sound correct? Can this happen? Thank you!
  25. If both parties have signed the settlement agreement, then what does "pending deposition" mean when the case is pulled up on the court website?
