My wife printed some separation papers off the internet. She claims that they have notorized. In the state of VERMONT do those papers need to be filed with the court to be legal? My other question is..if those papers are not legal, can i use the...
People can make agreements between themselves without involving courts. They do it all the time and those agreements are called contracts. Whether courts will enforce those agreements is an entirely different question. People ask if papers are "legal" all the time, but I have never been quite sure what they meant by "legal." If the question is, if one party breaches an agreement, will the court enforce the agreement against the breaching party?, the answer is, it depends. Probably there's no general answer.
Attorney Wysolmerski steers you correctly when he tells you about legal separation, which is a process in which the rights and obligations of the parties are fixed by the court, and the property of the separated persons is also divided. Consult a Vermont matrimonial lawyer who can advise you about legal separation.
Marital infidelity is not, in the usual circumstance, going to be admissible in a proceeding for divorce or legal separation.
Not legal advice, just my two cents and some general principles. Consult Vermont licensed counsel confidentially for legal advice you can rely on.See question

I can't speak to Georgia law, but I can tell you that generally unclaimed monies end up sent to the department of state government that deals with unclaimed property. Then the heirs may claim it if they meet the requirements of that department. I'm not suggesting you do that; I'm saying, that may be one of the options available. I have seen such circumstances where checks show up after an estate closes; the bank account is closed, it's, say, a $30 check, and it's not worth reopening the estate or the estate's bank account to cash it. So it ends up at the state, where an heir can claim it.
Not legal advice, just my two cents. I don't practice law in Georgia or hold Georgia licensure. Consult Georgia counsel to obtain legal advice. I practice in Vermont ONLY.See question
How long aftwr tou discover fraud on a civil lawsuit can u file to vacate a judgment
The law will often distinguish between "intrinsic fraud" and "fraud on the court" in respect of the applicable time limitations, and provide a longer limitations period for the latter. Making a motion to vacate a judgment by reason of fraud is no sport for amateurs; many lawyers have never encountered the "intrinsic fraud" vs. "fraud on the court" distinction. Moreover, if (for sake of argument) there was a fraud going to the jurisdiction of the court--so that the court actually did not have jurisdiction over the parties or over the claim--there may not even be a time limitation.
So instead of attempting to understand which of several limitations periods may apply--something about which learned counsel may sometimes reasonably disagree--go see an experienced civil litigator, who can help you evaluate whether you have grounds to proceed with the course of action you indicate.

If I pay them, are there attorneys who will argue for me and allow me to have my day in court? Win or lose?
Yes, provided that there is some basis in law and fact for what you want them to argue. Lawyers are "Officers of the Court" and this places some limits on what they may say and do before the court. They cannot, for example, present the testimony of witnesses they believe will testify falsely. Moreover, if lawyers present claims to the court which are demonstrably frivolous (not merely arguable, but without any basis whatever), they can be sanctioned by the court. So a lawyer cannot just argue WHATEVER the client wants him to argue; what the lawyer argues is going be subject to the professional and ethical limitations placed upon him by ethics rules and his duties to the tribunal itself.See question
A woman called the police and made false accusations about me. The police came to my home and investigated. They found no evidence or foundation for the accusations, but I lost my job anyway. Now, a year later, I am being denied re-hire/employm...
I am unaware of any principle of law which would permit you to influence a private employer's record keeping in respect of its internal security system. It may be unfair that you lost your job in connection with this incident, but nothing in what you posted above leads me to suspect that your private employer's conduct in terminating you violated the law, or that this employer has a legal obligation to re-hire you, or that employer is obliged to alter its internal security record-keeping because the police found no foundation for the accusations. Employees who are not members of unions covered by collective bargaining agreements have very few rights in respect of their employers.

It's hard to know. Could be age discrimination, which is illegal. Could be something wholly personal to the interviewer, i.e., s/he just didn't like you, which would not be illegal. On the facts you state, we can't tell one way or the other.
The thing about lawsuits is, the plaintiff has the burden of proof. A hunch is not evidence, and the fact of not having been hired, without more, is not enough to sustain a lawsuit. Keep at it, and I wish you good luck in your job search.See question
