  1. I live in North Carolina and I am wwondering if my daughter is legally emancipated at the age of 16? And also my rights to my children that don't live with me right now but I have not lost my parental rights to either.
  2. In the state of North Carolina is a Physician or Physician Assisant required to file their own small business as a professional corporation or is this optional? More specifically is a Physician or Physicians Assistant able to own an S corporation?
  3. Hi, I own a townhome in Raleigh, North Carolina. On Sunday, 12/21/14 while I was at work, they towed my vehicle from my legally assigned parking space. I have tried to call the Talis Management Association, and they have not returned my calls. I will try not to be emotional, but they towed my vehicle from my property without as much as a letter stating I was in violation of anything. Isn't this considered theft of a vehicle? I have also contacted a local property law (HOA) attorney, but they have not yet called me back. There are two really big problems right now. The vehicle is accumulating daily "storage" fees, and I only work 10 - 15 hours a week so I do not have extensive funds for attorney's fees. Oh, the third problem is that my townhome is completely paid for.....bad move. Could someone make some suggestions? Do the homeowners' have no rights under the law if they are involved with an HOA? Thank you.
  4. I have started a corporation and established a business for laser hair removal and other Medical aesthetic laser services. Before treatments can offered at my facility I must have a Medical Director. My question is does a Medical Director "have" to be a Physician or can a Physicians Assistant or Nurse Practioner serve as a medical director?
  5. I own a home in NC which is rented out. A "friend" is renting the home. The lease term is one year, but it has a 60 day clause for both the renter and the landlord to end the lease in the event of certain situations, one being that my work would require me to live in the city. I wrote this in because there as a chance that my work would require me to be in the city limits. In all honesty, I did not want to rent the home out to my "friend" but he was quite insistant (it was a great deal for him). He got a discount rate on the home and no pet deposit (he has muliple). I put the 60 day clause in to protect both the renter and myself for my forced relocation risk, and also in case he lost his job and had to move back home. The conditions for the 60 day early vacate clause are quite specific. Even if he had another condition, I would let him out of the lease as long as he gave me those 60 days. 5 months into the lease, I received notification from my job that I had to relocate. I gave the tenant well over 60 days notice, and he gave me his expected vacate date, which was between Jan 1-15. Now he has changed his mind and decided that he wants to leave this week. I have it in writing that he gave me his expected vacate date and agreed that would be his last day. My question is, if the landlord has to give the 60 days notice as allowed, is there any expectation for the tenant to not leave before the notice period or intent to vacate date? Secondly, once the tenant has given me a last date of occupancy in writing, can the vacate early without damages?

  8. Can income from a pension that was awarded to me in equitable distribution be excluded when determining my ability to pay alimony?
  9. I recently received a ticket for speeding and reckless driving with a PJC on my record. PJC was for failing to come to a complete stop at a stop sign. Speeding and reckless driving was 100 in a 65 zone. No ill reasoning just a terrible morning and wasn't thinking about my speed. I would describe myself as very studious and hardworking. I live a mundain life and this is very uncharacteristic. I realize I made big mistake. I need my car for my job and school. What are the chances of retaining my license and what is the best course of action?
  10. Can my ex husband have a judge who is buddies with his lawyer and always takes our cases and also his lawyer who he has is his uncle. He also just started renting a house from his uncle and his uncles mom. Can his uncle the lawyer be his lawyer over a DVO and that they also turned it into a custody battle I don't have a lawyer and they are giving my ex who hasn't seen our kids but twice for a total of 1hr and 15 mins. in 6 months every Sunday from 1-6 to take to his and his girlfriends house they just moved into not even a month ago on top of they have been dating less than 4 months. After 4 weeks of his Sunday visits they are giving my ex who works 40-75 hrs a week every other week custody of my 3 and 1 year old kids . He said in court he had daycare arrangements for my kids when he works that his new girlfriends mom and her new boyfriend are going to watch them until his girlfriend gets off work at 3:30 at the job she has been working 2 days and she will drive them to the house they are renting and keep them until he gets home anywhere from 6pm till 12am. My ex doesn't have set hrs. laying hardwood floor and he just got a drug charge a little over a year ago on top of he just got his driver license less than 2 years ago. I kicked him out because I found pill on my kids bathroom sink and learnt he was using again. I am really scared something bad is going to happen to my small babies. There is a lot of crazy people being mean to kids these days.
  11. My boy friend is currently finishing up his divorce or at least trying to. His wife left him when she was 7 months pregnant. When this happened he got a court order to make sure he could be their for the birth of his daughter, it also came with an order for her to put him on the birth certificate and to give their daughter his last name. well when their daughter was born she went against the court order and gave their daughter her maiden name and still left him off the birth certificate. Well in July last year she was in contempt and told to pay for the DNA test and the name change, and he was ordered to pay child support. Well it has now been over a year and she has yet to change the name but he is still ordered to pay. Since July this matter has been brought up to the same judge but nothing has happened. She has told him to pay to do it and that she will sign but its not his fault it wasn't done right in the first place. This judge has also recently ordered him to pay her lawyer fees for the last court date and has been told to pay it in 60 days. Now for my major questions. - What more should we do about the birth certificate? - Isnt the lawyer fees a debit and should be given the time frame of in a timely fashion but to pay it? - She has also offered for him to sign away his rights, and that is a option he is willing to just walk away.
  12. Hi. I'm hoping someone can help me find some information. We purchased our house 53 days ago. The house was advertised as having ALL polybutylene pipes removed. I'm currently sitting here listening to the sound of 13 industrial fans and 2 large humidifiers, looking at subfloor in the entire downstairs and holes cut into the walls so they can dry compliments of a poly pipe bursting in the pantry yesterday! Is the seller or listing agent liable at all for this situation at this point or is it all me since I purchased the house? We used the home warranty to fix the pipe and are using our homeowners insurance to pay for the restoration company. My main concern is that this will happen again since the poly pipes clearly were not removed. HELP!!
  13. My husband took our car to an Acura dealership that he has been dealing with for years now. Their service has gotten poor . The first issue I had was my car went in for routine maintenance and they shampooed my carpet and will doing so they knocked something loose that caused my car to shut down the next day. I had to have it towed they told me it happened when they serviced the car but they didn't reimburse the tow and I had to pay to get their mistake fixed. Now I took my car to dealership, they told me I need an ac compressor. I pay for the ac compressor ($800.00) and they call me and tell me it's ready but when I get home I realize that the fan is constantly running (never did before). So I take it back to the shop and they tell me that it's the control panel and if I don"t pay another $1200.00 it's gonna totally mess the car up. My opinion the car wasn't fixed in the first place and why before they put the compressor on they didn't know that this was the problem in the beginning and it would have been my choice if I wanted to pay $2000.00 (that I don't have) and not get it fixed and waited til I did have the money. Now I am stuck with a car that will I cannot drive. It is still in the shop and I have a loaner and they want the loaner back. Is there anything I can do about this because I feel like they have made a mistake that I now have to pay for?
  14. I'm not married, but own a house with my boyfriend in North Carolina. We are separated, and I'd like to keep the house. Is it possible for me to form a living trust with me as the sole beneficiary and then transfer the title to the living trust, such that his name would be automatically removed from the note, or title/deed, as a result of doing so? The mortgage lender does allow for transfers of titles into living trusts. I'm asking, as the other options include refinancing in my name only or trying to get a loan assumption, which may prove impossible for me. Thanks so much!
  15. First thank you for this forum first I have worked for this company with the same manager for four (4) years with no infraction or write-up's. In the year 2012-2013 I was diagnose with breast cancer and through-out my treatment the company never held anything. In addition, I was too able to use my vacation and sick time for surgeries. However, when I informed my manager now new owner of the company that my last surgery was schedule and question about FMLA she said no I can’t deal with this you’re fired. But I can work up until the schedule date of surgery but nothing after. I believe I was discriminated against because I was wrongfully terminated and discriminated against because of my surgery for my disability. Can someone tell me if it’s true or false?

  17. Greetings Everyone, I'm a college student living in an noisy apartment complex. I take my school work and 'work' very seriously. I have a upstairs neighbor who blast his music every other day. It can be during the afternoon, evening to the morning. I've asked him to please turn his music down multiple times. It's failed so I called the police. The police aren't able to hear it outside so it's not loud enough to them. I've talked to my landlord who does not reside in the apartment complex to know what I'm going through. We've had a meeting and during that meeting he stated that he had 'SPEAKERS'....speakers. The landlord said nothing in regards to taking the speakers down or anything. She just asked him to turn it down, basically. I've been dealing with this for almost a year now. My lease is up on Aug. 31st but I want to move out now. I've been wanting to move out everyday without having to pay for termination fee. It's not my fault that I cannot have 'quiet enjoyment'. I have 2 more months....what do I do guys? Please please help me....i beg you. I'm praying every night that I only have 2 more months.....2 more months..
  19. Who regulates Time Warner Cable in North Carolina? I want to file a complaint regarding my email, or should I say, sketchy email.
  20. We live in NC and my husband's ex-wife has placed a rule 65 freeze on his final worker's comp award. I have searched every Federal GS and every NCGS and I can't find where this is legal. My husband suffered his injury while a contract fire fighter in an active war zone. She wants his entire check placed in an attorney's trust fund then after the court is done distributing it we can apply for what money is left. We do not owe ANY child support arrears. She sent the freeze to the defense attorney for the worker's comp claim and he said this meant nothing to him because she legally had no right to touch his money. Dept of labor agreed and check was mailed to husband. Now she is dragging us through court for contempt and our family law lawyer seems to be on her side, I need help or we are gonna lose everything. Let me put some other thing in perspective ex-wife wants to know where we live, square footage of house, how many bedrooms, but uses her parents address and a PO box. She used my husband's SSN to make it look like he was applying for a job where she works at so she could run a background check on him, after we were notified of what had been done, we called the number and they did an investigation. She took out a restraining order on my husband and said he was trying to mess with her livelihood. What she did is considered ID theft is a federal offense and criminal punishment by law up to 5 years for each count. She did it twice! My husband had to fight through the court system to see his son and the first time he got to see him he was 6 years old. I'm dealing with a psycho path who thinks she is queen and can harrass us as much and anytime she wants, I need the law on our side so she can be dethroned!

  22. The following is a request for guidance on how to proceed with my current situation. I am the father of two young boys, 4 & 5 years old, they have lived with me since birth. The mother & I have never been married, although we have lived together for the last seven years. During all those years I have been the sole provider for the family, three months ago she began a new job & now feels that she can support herself & take my children to live with her mother. At this point she is demanding that I leave our home or she will leave with the boys to her mothers home. In the past she has called the police and filed accusations of abuse, which after being investigated by the Police, were found to be unsubstantiated. Therefore I am seeking a way to protect my children & stand up for my rights as a father. I take the boys to school every morning & pick them up from school, take them to the park & I am always with them, unless I am at work or school. What can I do to prevent her from disrupting my children's home & family unit, any assistance would be greatly appreciated. Sincerely, RaRaDad
  23. Are there ways, other than the creation of an LLC/Corporation, to get limited liability for the owners of a website? The website is a side project of us (not officially launched yet) and will mainly contain user generated content. Revenues may be based on ads but will not happen in the near future after launch. Such ways would need to allow us to benefit from DMCA Safe-Harbor, and stay personally protected against lawsuits concerning infringements of copyrights, trademarks, patents, etc. Thanks.
  24. A friend and I would like to form an LLC for our website business, and register it in Wyoming (being easy to setup, cheap, and have no income tax on the corporate level, and for limited liability protection). We live respectively in North Carolina and Ontario, Canada. We do not have offices and work from home in parallel to our day job. The revenues will be based on ads and other online-only activities. It is not clear to us in which circumstances an LLC must be registered as foreign entity where the members live or work. I do not know if our online business (website worked on from 2 different home locations, with ads revenues) applies to the NC law 17 NCAC 05C .0102 DOING BUSINESS DEFINED found here: http://reports.oah.state.nc.us/ncac/title%2017%20-%20revenue/chapter%2005%20-%20corporate%20franchise,%20income,%20and%20insurance%20taxes/subchapter%20c/17%20ncac%2005c%20.0102.pdf And same question for the Ontario equivalent: http://www.e-laws.gov.on.ca/html/statutes/english/elaws_statutes_90e27_e.htm A Wyoming LLC seems like a good option for our case, only if we don't have to register a foreign entity in our 2 respective states (is that even possible?). Also, we would like to avoid having to change everything if one of us moves to a different state. Thank you.
