  • What do we have to do about getting custody of grandchild

    Adam’s Answer

    For a grandparent to get custody of their grandchild, the grandparent must file a custody lawsuit against BOTH parents by filing a Complaint and causing a civil summons to be issued to both parents. This process is generally referred to as a "third-party" custody claim. A general "custody complaint" like a parent might file against another parent will not be sufficient, as "third-party" custody claims require and have a much higher pleading threshold, in part because the 'third-party" must establish proper standing. Strongly consider speaking with a North Carolina family lawyer who is well versed in "third party" custody claims.

  • What is the statue of limitatins in nc. For a mortgager to sue when the morygagee stops making payments?

    I stopped making payments on my building 16 years ago because of a letter I got in the mail how can I clear the title now 16 years later so I can sell the property

    Adam’s Answer

    If I understand your post - you haven't made a mortgage payment in 16 years and no foreclosure or other legal proceeding has been brought against you. If that is the case - you need to contact a local lawyer about your rights. To clear the title, you will likely need to bring a lawsuit seeking to "quite title." However, timing is important. Strongly consider hiring an trial lawyer experienced in land disputes / real estate / title issues, to help you achieve your goals.

  • I was accused of stealing money from a register at work, and was fired,

    I was taken into a room by one general manager alone with him, he accused me of stealing money from a register, and I did not take any money,

    Adam’s Answer

    It is unclear from your post what question you are seeking an answer to. I presume by the tags you placed on the question - you are wondering about any possible claims for wrongful termination as a result of the false accusations. Consider calling a local employment lawyer in your area. Click the "find a lawyer" link above in the right hand corner to search for a lawyer near you.

  • What are our options?

    My husband was contacted by a woman on Facebook who claims that her almost 18 year old son is his. She wants them to meet. We told her after the holidays they could set something up. My husband is unsure if the kid id even his (this would have bee...

    Adam’s Answer

    First, start by consulting with a local lawyer. Second, what to do - depends mostly on what your goals are. If your husband believes this actually might be his child - he needs to decide whether he wants to meet his son. Your post isn't clear about what she is threatening to take him to court for ... presumably child support, but again your post is unclear.

  • After I obtain emergency custody and have the 10 day hearing, is there anything the other parent can do?

    Long story short, my fiance and I obtained emergency custody of his 16 month old daughter around the end of October 2015, the mother is facing felony drug trafficking charges as well as prostitution. We had our temporary hearing and obtained full ...

    Adam’s Answer

    The answer to your question really depends on the precise language of the order that was entered. Since you have an attorney, consider asking him/her whether the current order in place is a "temporary" order or a "permanent" order. If it is a temporary order, you likely will be having another custody trial in the near future. But again, you should consult with your attorney. If you don't trust your attorney, consider consulting with another local attorney for a second opinion.

    Adam’s Answer

    It sounds like you bought a used car. If so, most used cars are sold "as is" and without a warranty. Consider looking into whether the terms of your sale included a warranty.

    Adam’s Answer

    I agree with the other responses, the quotation you provided in your details is incoherent. If your case worker isn't providing you with enough detail for you to understand your case, ask to speak with the Supervising Agent. You should consider consulting with a local lawyer so he/she can help you figure out the status of your case..
