    There are websites where you can run criminal history checks on yourself including the TBI. If this is your only conviction, you may be eligible under TN new expungement statute to have the conviction removed from your record. If interested you can find an attorney in your area to help with that.

    There are a couple of possible ways. If your mother in law's Alzheimer's is not advanced and she is still legally competent, you could simply have a durable power of attorney executed by her. If you want to make care decisions for her you would need a durable power of attorney for healthcare. If you want to take care of financial and business matters, you would need a durable power of attorney, or power of attorney. If she has full blown Alzheimer's and is no longer competent (likely she...

  3. How to stop a motion for change of custody after already being dismissed with prejudice years earlier?

    Her complaint of 4 years ago being dismissed with prejudice doesn't prevent her from filing a new petition to change custody on new grounds. Maybe your best approach is to file a contempt action for the past due child support. That should take care of the extra funds she has to keep filing petitions.

    A niece is a relative of the second degree so yes she is within third degree. Relatives of the first degree would include relatives such as parents and siblings. Relatives of the second degree would include relatives such as grandparents, grandchildren, aunts, uncles, nieces, and nephews. Relatives of the third degree would include relatives such as first cousins, great grandparents, and great grandchildren.

    A employer can recover from you if they suffer a loss. they can not "fine" you for punishment. From your description this sounds like a form of punishment from your employer rather than being tied to some loss by your employer. If so it would be prohibited.

    The answer may depend on the terms of your agreement. Unless your agreement provided for payment in advance (which is not the norm), you should not pay in advance. That is the best way to make sure the work is never completed. Send the contractor a letter asking him to complete the agreed work and you will pay him the remaining sum upon completion. If he still refuses to perform contact an attorney in Knoxville to discuss your case. You may already have paid him for more work than he has...

  7. How do I get legal guardianship papers from the state of Tennessee?

    1 lawyer answer

    Has something happened to the children's parents? If it has you will need to petition the courts to become their legal guardians. If nothing has happened to the parents, there is no form you NEED to file. A parent can put a provision in their will for the guardianship of their children, or could execute an affidavit to that effect. In the event the parents are gone, the court will give consideration to the deceased parents wishes but ultimately the court has the duty to do what is in the...

    I don't see a question here. As answered in your previous post, if you have received discovery request you must respond or risk have admissions made and motions to compel issued. The chances of you winning a summary judgment motion as the plaintiff in an employment discrimination case are basically zero. If you don't handle pre trial discovery and motion practice well the chances of the defendant winning a summary judgment motion are very high. While I admire you for reading up on civil...

    Maybe yes, maybe no. It is not possible to answer your question based on the facts you are able to give in a post. The question will boil down to if you Dr's actions did not meet the standard of care of other OBGYN's practicing in the area. I suggest you obtain a copy of your medical records and take them to a medical malpractice attorney for evaluation and consultation.

  10. Can they come after my home and car for a $2000 civil judgement in Tennessee. Is it likely?

    Yes they can. To protect a portion of your property you can file an exemption with the court where the judgment was given. See the link following this e-mail for a brochure on filing exemptions and the form you need. They can also garnish your wages (and this is likely). I've also added a link explaining your options. In the end you need to figure out how to pay this judgment as soon as possible. It will continue to increase because of interest until paid.
