To seek an absolute divorce, a person must file a properly drafted Complaint (the State of NC does not have a form for this ) and a Domestic Action Cover Sheet (Form AOC-CV-750). The person should bring with them a Civil Summons (Form AOC-CV-100) which the Clerk's office will issue of the opposing party. Person wishing to file for absolute divorce will need to pay a filing fee to the Clerk of Court in the amount $225 (+$10 if they wish to resume a maiden name) unless the filing party is indigent. If the person filing the divorce action desires to accomplish service by Sheriff, all Sheriff's in North Carolina charge $30.00 for service -- Sheriff Offices in other states have various fees.See question

I believe from your comments to another attorney's response, the original Court Order is from Washington where neither of you reside. To enforce the Washington Court Order regarding custody on a parent living in North Carolina, the Washington Court Order would need to be registered in North Carolina. The State of North Carolina has forms which can be used to Register other state's child custody orders - Forms AOC-CV-660 and AOC-CV-661, which can be found by searching for the form numbers at http://nccourts.org/Forms/FormSearch.asp. A person who resides outside of North Carolina should strongly consider using a NC Attorney to assist in this process. Once the Washington Order is registered in NC, the Courts of NC can enforce the Order via a Motion for Contempt and a Motion for an Order to Show Cause. Additionally, once the Order is registered, you may qualify to file a motion seeking to modify the existing order. But, again you really should consult with an NC lawyer who can provide you with individualized and specific legal advice.See question

Your statement doesn't contain the reasons why the motion was denied. If you used the standard AOC form order from the clerk, it likely was because you failed to make sufficient factual allegations.
If you are seeking a modification you will need to allege either:
(a) Defendant has incurred a substantial involuntary decrease in his income. OR
(b) It has been more than three (3) years since the entry of the last Order and there exists a difference of fifteen percent (15%) or more between the amount of child support payable under the existing Order and the amount of child support resulting from application of the North Carolina Child Support Guidelines based upon the party’s current incomes and circumstances.
Another possible option, is if you are under an NC child support order that is greater than the amount of your income, you might be able to file a motion under Rule 60 of the North Carolina Rules of Civil Procedure seeking relief from the order as further application does not sound equitable.See question
Me and my wife want to get temporary custody of our grandchild 18 months old. My son and his girlfriend stays with us it's there child her grandparents kicked her out when baby was almost a month old. She's been staying with us since. My son and h...
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.See question

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
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.See question
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,
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.See question

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.See question

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.See question
