  • What do we need to do to get this done?

    My mother passed away last April. The only asset she had was one acre of land. We (the 4 children) would like the deed to be listed as the rest of our property. (Heirs of JR Chason)

    Kellie’s Answer

    Generally the deed would not be listed as the heirs as that is not the preferred method. It is best to have the individual owners names. A quit claim deed without title search can generally be done by an attorney. This would be the names you desire on the deed.

  • How do I get my license unsuspended?

    Recently my car was broken into and my license stolen. When I went to get it replaced I found out that my license was supposed 3 years ago.

    Kellie’s Answer

    Your license can be suspended for failing to go to court for a traffic ticket. This can usually be fixed pretty easy. Keep in mind many courts will have reinstatement fees that an attorney can usually help lesson. Make sure you no longer drive until your license is active because it can be far worse if you get charged with driving on a revoked license.

    Kellie’s Answer

    Filing a divorce can be done pro se meaning you can represent yourself. Many courts have packets to guide you through the paperwork. However, most attorneys do charge a relatively small flat fee for divorces. You also might want to just speak with a lawyer to make sure you do not waive any of your rights by getting divorced.

  • Can I still get a teaching job?

    I have a misdemeanor drug charge that has been appealed in NC. I was wondering if I could still get a teaching job?

    Kellie’s Answer

    The mere fact you have a charge of any type is not always an indication you will not receive a job. There are numerous doctors, lawyers and people in professional positions that have at some point gotten a criminal charge and/or conviction. I have interviewed candidates for admission to the bar and the fact they have a criminal history does not ban them. I always tell people be upfront and honest and most people understand every has made a mistake at some point. It is far worse to not be forthcoming and they find out.

  • Speeding ticket - 10 years roughly

    MY fiancee wants to get everything taken care of with his licscense, he received a speeding ticket in Scotland county NC when he was like 17 years old but he never paid it and he found out a couple years ago before we moved to Florida he had a sus...

    Kellie’s Answer

    A good place to start would be finding out the exact citation that he missed and the county. You can try DMV and the Scotland County Clerk's office. You will likely be able to get the information from them to reset the ticket. I encourage you to talk with a lawyer and have them assist you because just paying the ticket can create points on your license and increase your insurance. They will be able to handle it quickly and get your license back.

  • Me and my husband have been separated for two yrs. He left me for another woman who he is still with. We have a house and land.

    I am looking for alimony for adultery, and for him to either buy my part of the house or put it up for sale and we split the money. There was a agreement that who ever live in the house, didn't bring no one else in there till we were divorced. The...

    Kellie’s Answer

    There are other factors to consider when determining alimony not just the fact of adultery. Is there a dependent spouse and a supporting spouse? Additionally, the assets such as the house will need to be addressed as far as who gets what. You can handle these matters by separation agreement or have a judge decide in court. You may also be able to make him pay for your attorney fees. You should consult an attorney to assist you.

  • Do I need to sign over my property or its there another way?

    My sister is going to be taking care of my home while I'm absent. She wants to put insurance on it and rent it to our niece. She needs some kind of power/rights to do this. How can I give her the rights/power without signing the house over?

    Kellie’s Answer

    Please be very careful you do not sign/deed away your home unintentionally. I have had clients come to me and say I didn't know that it meant I could not get the house back if I signed the deed. You should consult an insurance agent and find out what they require in order to insure the property. You can also prepare paperwork to make her your agent without conveying your interest in the property.
