  1. In the state of North Carolina when the employer fires the employeel , an then the employee turns around and files a North Carolina unemployment claim, and states the reasons of which they fired or the dismissal of their job an on the questions the ask to be very specific on and for exact reasons and then the employer has to do the same for the rebuttal on his reasons of why he terminated the employee . Then later on throughout the hearings an the appeals the employer changes the reasons of why the employee was fired. Is that not against policy and procedures and also against rules and regulations an just plain wrong ? I know my employer changed this reasons of why he terminated me throughout multiple hearings as well as appeals because I have all the transcript from previous hearings an appeals an it shows it's not for the same reasons he gave at initial request . And yet i keep getting denied when the reasons of my appeals and reasons of dismissal had stayed the same since the beginning. If it would had stayed to the true facts of the first reason he wrote down I'd already won but being he changes up an they allow it to be added has changed the out come . Can he change his story ? An if not who an where do I report it to ?
  2. I purchased a vehicle 10 months ago in "clean" condition with two previous owners (according to the GM of a dealership that I purchased it from, it was his personal vehicle). After 2k in repairs I returned to the dealership and asked them to evaluate my trade. They offered me 13,500 (wholesale) when I paid 25k for the car. They offered me no explanation. Another dealer pulled the Auto check and told me there were two mileage flags for rollbacks and eight previous owners. Are dealerships required to disclose auto check odometer flags and rollbacks? After speaking to the manager I know they also use the autocheck system. The gm was terminated a month after I bought the car for "shady" practices, but the dealer insists the car was in excellent condition (even though they won't offer even low trade value to take it back).
  3. I live in an HOA around the area of Charlotte North Carolina. I have had an existing metal fence that was approved by the HOA and installed in October of 2015. The HOA requires that we use existing fencing that is up prior to us constructing fences made of other materials. For example, there is a wooden fence in on the property line you have to tie in with the same style of wooden fence, according to HOA rules. If it is metal, you tie in with a metal fence. A new neighbor built behind me and put a 6-foot wood fence up that is around 10 inches away from our metal fence. This was over one year from the time I fence had been installed. Now because the HOA is so slow in responding, three other neighbors have built off of this fence line . My question is...what is the exact definition of a double fence? Does a certain distance between fences negated from being a double fence? Finally, how do I get my HOA to act with dillegence so a small problem does not escalate into a larger one?
  4. I live in Bulington, NC and I have 6 acres of pasture land that I am trying to get the land back in shape for animals. I have a couple of drunks that live next to my land that I have called the Sheriff on repeatedly for trespassing. They get drunk then ride their ATV on my property putting ruts all over my property, they cut down trees on my property at night for bomb fires, and when I speak to them they cuss, use defamatory names at us,and even told me if I put any animals out there they will kill them. All the police do is keep talking to them and keep giving them no trespassing warning but that is all. Need I say my husband and I are a mix couple. Recently one of these guys got arrested for pointing a gun at someone in the face and threatening them. So, I'm scared they will do something to my husband or me and maybe both of us. We don't want to move, this is our home what can we do?
  5. I live in Charlotte, North Carolina. There is a one-foot separation between my backyard fence and the fence of my next door neighbor. My neighbor wanted to install new fence and asked me recently whether is was OK for him to use my side of the fence as part of his new fence. I am concerned that my permission will result in encroachment issue down the road when I want to sell my property. What is the suggestion from the legal professionals?
  6. Where can I get a free list of confidential informants in NC?
  7. Has there ever been a case where a Doctor refused treatment and was ordered by the court to continue treatment?
  8. Before I left Northern Virginia (NOVA) and moved back to southeastern North Carolina, I had been living briefly with my now former girlfriend. Her last known address was in Annandale. Last July, I knew that our relationship was indeed over. I tried as best I could to get all of my personal belongings out of her apartment, but I wasn't able to do so. I ended up leaving behind a couple of thousand dollars’ worth of personal property, including a $400 college ring which was a very special piece of jewelry. On July 20, 2015, I returned to NOVA after spending the last 1 ½ days in Richmond helping a couple of friends with some computer problems. I was delayed in my return to Annandale because a severe thunderstorm knocked out power in my friend’s neighborhood in Richmond. The outage began on the afternoon of July 19th and lasted for about six hours. I stayed until power was restored, because I wanted to make sure everything was working correctly on the equipment that I serviced. By then, however, it was very late in the evening. When I returned to my ex-girlfriend's apartment in Annandale the next morning, she was convinced that I had been fooling around with one of the friends I had been helping in Richmond. Despite my insistence to her that I hadn't, there was no convincing her otherwise. She then grabbed hold of me by my shirt, pulled her towards me, and smelled my shirt thinking that she would smell perfume. She didn't. I knew then I had to leave, and by this time, I was fairly distraught. I ended up leaving the apartment without my keys and without my uniform for work. I needed both for later that day, so I had no choice but to go back to the apartment with a staff escort. I knocked on the door and asked her to at least give me my work clothes and my truck keys. She didn't allow me to enter the apartment, but instead brought my work clothes to the door. She also took the keys to the apartment off my key chain before returning them to me. I now had no access to the apartment building or the apartment itself even though my name was on the lease at the time. I also had no access to the personal property that was still in her apartment. Before leaving the apartment complex that morning, I knew had to at least get some of my things out of her place. Since I no longer had my own set of keys, I had no choice but to go to the apartment office and get a spare pair from the front desk. When I went to her third floor apartment with the spare pair of keys, I still wasn’t able to get in because she had bolted the door with the chain. She had already left for work, but her son was still there. She had ordered him not to allow me in the apartment. Her son finally allowed me to come in and collect some of my personal belongings. I didn’t realize it at the time, but all that I didn’t take with me that afternoon was what I ended up having to leave behind when I returned to North Carolina. For the next few days, I stayed at a friend’s house and spent the night on the floor of his office trying to sleep on an inflated mattress. While all of this is taking place, I learned that my father had been admitted to the hospital for salmonella poisoning almost 400 miles away in Wilmington, NC. My Dad is 78 years old and is dealing with other health issues including congestive heart failure and diabetes. Since I no longer had a place to live, and since my Dad needed help once he was released from the hospital, I decided to put in for a hardship transfer at my place of employment. Afterwards, I began making immediate plans to return to North Carolina. I made one last attempt to get the rest of my personal belongings from my ex-girlfriend’s apartment before I left NOVA, but I wanted to do it without her being there. I asked her to please respect my wishes on this request because I didn’t want to have another nasty confrontation. She refused to comply. I then said something in haste that I deeply regret. “Just give them to Goodwill.” I didn’t have time to argue with her and to go through another potential domestic dispute if she was at the apartment while I was attempting to retrieve my belongings. I had to get on the road and get back to North Carolina in order to assist a father who was in frail health. I proceeded to the interstate, and I returned to North Carolina without collecting the rest of my belongings. In the weeks afterwards, I made an attempt to contact my ex-girlfriend via e-mail to discuss possible options to get my belongings from her. I didn't get a response from her. The only thing she sent me was a couple of bottles of medication that I left in her apartment with a return address of Hanover, VA on the package. She also included a note (dated August 19th) saying, in a round about way that she given all of my belongings away. She also mentioned that she was no longer at her place of employment and to please leave her alone. I was furious. I had presumed that she had left her job in NOVA and had moved back to the Richmond area where most of her family and friends live. Then, on September 20th, I received an e-mail from my former church in Fairfax where I was once a member of the Council. I learned from the minutes of the meeting that she is still in NOVA, which made me wonder if she had lied to me about still being at her place of employment and possibly about other things. I then sent her an e-mail when I learned the latest about her situation. Within a week, she had changed her e-mail address and her phone number in order to prevent my being able to contact her. If I chose to file a civil suit against her, then I would need a definite phone number and physical address in order to do so. I would also have to travel almost 400 miles back to NOVA in order to file this suit in person at the Fairfax County Courthouse. I can't do it via e-mail, regular mail, or by phone. I thought about hiring a lawyer to handle this matter, but then there is the issue of cost. I don't have very much money right now. I also don't even know if she is still in the same apartment that I shared with her when I left last July. I welcome any suggestions or options as to what I could legally do to retrieve my belongings (assuming she might still have them).
  9. My husband incorporated a Consulting company (Inc) in my name registered in Illinois in last quarter of 2013. I was 100% owner of the company. My husband was employee of that company. Bank account in company’s name was opened in Charlotte. Account was operated jointly with my husband for convenience. In January 2015, due to problem in marriage, I had to go to India with my parents. I returned to USA in December 2015. We have Filed law suit for divorce and property distribution. My husband did not pay tax, file IRS return (federal and state) but in April/May 2015 withdrew all money during my absence and without my knowledge (though I am the 100% owner of the company) from the Bank Account in NC and closed it to fix me in IRS problem. He didn’t give any details of the company, allow company CPA to file returns etc. I had to file return, pay tax and penalty by borrowing from relative. At present, I am at great loss and trauma. My question is that I am 100% owner of Inc and husband was employee of the company. He was allowed to operate jointly for convenience. Can he withdraw all my money and close the account without my consent? He embezzled all money either in his account, in cash or transfer elsewhere. Does it become a crime in law? If yes, what kind of crime and what remedy is available? Can I get my money back? If yes, how? If no, what should I Do?
  10. In July 2011, the divorce from my wife was finalized. One of the conditions of our split involved the separation of all financial accounts in both of our names. Those conditions were satisfied in our divorce agreement with the exception of one account. We still had an Equity loan (or second mortgage) on the home we used to reside in together. I would go on to surrender all of my rights that house. I signed a form which allowed me to have my name taken off the deed. I didn't want the house or any of my former wife's assets. The conditions of our separation, and eventual divorce, said "Husband and Wife stipulate and agree that they have heretofore divided any joint accounts and that each party shall be the sole and separate owner of any and all such accounts in his or her sole name." To this day, that condition hasn't been satisfied with this particular loan. I haven't complained very much because the loan has continued to be paid on time every month. It does, however, have a high interest rate, so my ex-wife isn't making very much progress on paying off the loan. She is actually paying just as much on interest as she is on the principal. In the meantime, I've had limited success after reminding her about this situation. Right now, I can't help her with paying off the loan because of my own financial situation. I've been told that she needs to refinance the loan or sell the house. She is now using the residence as a rental property. and she has told me that the amount, which is now about $13K, is too big to move to an unsecured personal loan. Although I myself am not paying on this loan, it still shows up on my credit as debt, which has begun causing some problems for me. In the meantime, this problem drags on with no resolution. My former wife sought the legal help to begin the divorce process. Therefore, I can't speak directly with her attorney about this matter. I never sought an attorney myself. I was simply sent the divorce papers, I signed them, and sent them back. After almost six years, I'm still dealing with this one last financial matter. Advice?
  11. What is the best way to find a reliable vehicle when you can't put down any money and your credit is not in the best condition? I've looked on places like Craig's List, but the problem with shopping for a vehicle there is that you can never be sure what you're getting. It's always a risk, especially with older vehicles, when you aren't covered by any kind of warranty. The problem with dealerships is that they always have to run a credit check, and I learned the hard way that too many inquiries on your credit lowers your score. Because of my credit situation, I've been told that I would have to buy a new vehicle in order for the banks to feel comfortable lending me anything. I like the older vehicles, but getting approved for a loan is more difficult. I do have a job and an income, but I still can't afford but so much a month on payments. I was hoping to find a payment of less than $200 per month, but in my situation, that probably isn't realistic. I welcome any suggestions you can offer.
  12. There is an affair going on in this company between one partner and an employee. Is there any law in N.C. that the Company needs to notify the wife of the partner that there is an affair going on between her husband and an employee?
  13. I paid 850$ for the Vivitrol shot for my son less than a month ago. Can someone explain to me how he broke through it? It has been only 2 weeks. Despite the fact that I am sick w/concerns for my son, I want to know if I am legally able to get that money back. In addition, what about this product? Can I make them accountable someway for marketing a product that is not effective?
  14. I was pushed down by my estranged husband at a bar which he frequently goes, the owner who did not witness the incident came out yelling for me to leave let's say X alone he's a good paying customer. I did have X 's cell phone in my hand because he left it laying on a table outside where I was at, he left the establishment. Returned saw his phone in my hands and pushed me to get his phone I was texting on to his mistress. The occurrence resulted in a torn all,fractured tibia, torn ligament and lower leg contusion. I didn't file charges the state picked it up. Court date the district attorney stated / asked where the phone landed when I got pushed. I replied "I have no idea it was in his hands when I looked up after being pushed to the ground" Since I could not answer the question of where the phone landed the DA stated there wasn't enough evidence for this to be heard in front of a judge. Well, it's been 1 1/2 years later and I have paid a lot in medical bills unable to work for several months. Is there a recourse of action I can take so this can be heard in front of a judge? Also, he had someone there who I never saw come to defend X to state I fell not pushed.
  15. I received a letter from my town - not an HOA - telling me to cut the grass within two weeks or they would start fining me $50 a day. I cut the grass. Two days after I cut the grass, a third-party contractor went onto my property while I was not home. I was not notified, contacted, or given any warning. This contractor did not cut any grass, as it was already cut. They razed my landscaping instead. The contractor went beyond my front yard. They went onto all the way around my home and garage and into my backyard. They randomly razed large plants. Nothing they cut was grass, and nothing they cut was a weed. It was all things I had planted. They razed four-foot high elderberry bushes, but only six of the twelve in the (mulched) bed. They crushed two-foot high evergreen shrub and the surrounding flowers; this was part of a larger area and the rest of the area was untouched. It was wanton and random, and all over my property. What comes up for me is: * violation of fourth amendment right to privacy by crossing the threshold of my home * trespass * destruction of property * vandalism I contacted the town manager and gave him an earful. He is coming tomorrow to see the damage. I am writing to ask the following: 1. Am I correct in my ideas about the aforementioned violations? 2. Are my complaints and recourse with the town or with the third-party contractor? 3. What is my recourse? I seek reparations for replacement of plants and lost harvest, but I also want protection from this happening to my property again. Any advice or assistance is appreciated. Thank you.
  16. If company A hires and/or contracts company B to investigate and do a job does company B then have authority, on behave of company A, regarding the work order? If so where is this written.
  17. Is causation for murder interrupted when the victim leaves the hospital AMA and later dies? Case facts: The victim and defendant are a couple.

The victim leaves the hospital AMA and later falls into a coma and dies from a busted spleen. Defendant is charged with first degree murder.
  18. Hello, I live in a large apartment complex in NC. A week ago, a neighbor who lived in our bldg was investigated and arrested for making meth here. The police posted a sign on his door saying not to go in, unsafe chemicals, etc. I have a young daughter and our lease is up in four months. What are my rights? Am I able to break my lease and move sooner? Negotiate a lower rent payment? It may have been the apt management who turned him in, I don't know. But I know it is extremely unsafe and was probably going on for a while. Our management is rather shady and would never let us know that we have rights or legal options. I plan to contact them, but just want to have my facts and info straight before I do. They think that because we are low income that we are also low intelligence. Thanks!
  19. My wife and I were divorced in VA. Now she lives in NC and has since before the divorce was finalized.I am moving there now and that is why I am filing for a custody change.. How do I get the courts to change jurisdiction? or does it happen automatically since neither of us live in the original state?
  20. In 2009, I was awarded full legal custody and primary physical custody of my children. Included in the case was a custody evaluation by a child psychologist who said that the children were at risk for ongoing mental and emotional problems due to my ex-wife's extensive efforts to create parental alienation. Since the change in custody, the children improved significantly in my care. I have largely been able to keep them sheltered from her behaviors. Two of my children have reached adulthood, but one 13 year old daughter remains under the custody order. After a number of recent incidents, something happened two weeks ago that culminates in what may be considered a "substantial change in circumstances" that would warrant a modification to our custody order. My ex-wife did not take our daughter to school at the end of her visitation, which ended on Monday morning. Instead, she kept our daughter out of school and spent the day trying to get her to agree to not return home. She repeatedly tried to get my daughter to "confess" that I am sexually molesting her - a charge which she has made in the past that has been unsubstantiated by Child Protective Services. However, the allegation did cause significant disruption to all of our lives and my daughter fears having to go through all of that process again. Because of the recent questions and prodding by my ex-wife, my daughter thinks that her mother may be preparing to make another allegation. She is also very concerned because my ex-wife made her give a urine sample but would not tell her what she was going to use it for. Although I have full control of medical decisions, my ex-wife would not tell me what she is doing with the urine. My daughter and her 18 year old brother also called their mother to express that my daughter frequently has headaches, nightmares and an upset stomach due to my ex-wife's treatment of her. When asked, my ex-wife refused to tell either of them what her plans for the urine sample are. She only said that what she was doing was "in their best interests" and to "protect" my daughter. Given that no abuse is taking place in my home, my daughter feels very manipulated by her mother and does not want to go for visitation - at least for the next few weeks until things calm down. This problem has gone on for many years and my daughter is showing signs of emotional distress frequently. I intend to file a pro se motion this week to modify custody based upon the ongoing maltreatment of my daughter, and to request supervised visitation. However, we are concerned that at this upcoming weekend visitation, my ex-wife will continue to try to emotionally manipulate my daughter. My daughter is worried that it is going to be another weekend of headaches, nausea and nightmares like it was for her the previous week. I want to be able to keep my daughter home, but my ex-wife does have visitation rights under the custody order. I don't want to jeopardize my good parenting record for the upcoming hearing to modify custody by "depriving" my ex-wife of her visitation. I don't know what to do. Last week, not only did she manipulate my daughter to tears repeatedly, but she violated my custody rights by keeping her an extra day (and out of school) without my permission. One additional point: I was advised to talk to Child Protective Services about this problem, and I did. My ex-wife is under investigation for emotional child abuse and I have a preliminary letter from CPS that states that it appears to them that emotional child abuse is occuring. I am soliciting counsel from any of you on this matter regarding the wisdom of not making my daughter go for visitation this week, despite my ex-wife's visitation rights. Thank-you.
  21. I recently received a custody agreement from my ex's lawyer and need some help understanding what is meant by "That it is in the best interest of the minor child for her care, custody, and control to remain with the Defendant subject to reasonable rights of visitation with the Plaintiff as agreed upon by the parties." and "That the Defendant is hereby granted the care, custody, and control of the minor child, namely<my child's name and bday>, subject to reasonable rights of visitation by the Plaintiff as agreed upon by the parties." Does this mean that I get sole custody or something different? I do not speak legalese so it's very confusing to me.
  22. If I'm 14 and pregnant, could we get married without parental consent and just a court order or would we need both? Would we both be automatically emancipated?
  23. What resources would I use to find out if a small town attorney, hired for probate purposes, has a conflict of interest in the matter? Is it normal to have only one appraisal of real property before a private sale? My mother died intestate, and, with her credit card debt, the attorney must sell her home to pay the debt. Attorney had one appraisal from a local realtor and is recommending a less than half the value private sale. My brother, who lives in the rural area in which the property is located, is administrator, but he pretty much abandoned the place with no electricity or water. Is this proper behavior for an estate admin? I live across the country and would like to deal with this, but have limited financial resources. Am I making a mountain out of a molehill? Thank you.
  24. We are under contact to buy some land to build a house in NC. Our original closing date was oct. 8th but the VA had some issues getting the appraisal back in time so now its 11/9/15 and our closing date is Friday 11/13/15. When my agent contacted the sellers agent because the land still has 2 horses and 2 alpacas from a person who is leasing the land still on there. His response was "you should be happy the sellers waited this long for them to close" this whole time we have been stressing to him the animals needed to be moved so the builder can start right away. I am ready to walk away because I don't want to fight with the horse owner plus we are new to the area and these people have been there for years so we would be moving there under bad terms. Is there any way we can back out without loosing our $1k earnest money since they don't want to have the land cleared before closing?
  25. My daughter, age 8, vandalized a neighbor's car while playing outside. She painted mud hearts on her trunk, and in the process scratched the car. The scratches are not horrible, but they are visible when standing close to the trunk. She was disciplined and we went over to the neighbors to apologize. I agreed to pay for any damages. A few days later the neighbor contacts me and informs me that she went to her car's dealership and they told her it would be 1900.00 to repaint the trunk of her car. She also informed she needed it done in 30 days, she would not be going anywhere else, and she would not file a claim. I am attempting to do the right thing, however I am wondering is this the right process?
