Q: 

Child custody attorney didn''t show up?

A:  I would talk to him about it. If the first hearing was really important he would have been there, got a continuance or sent a colleague, it sounds to me like what happened was going to happen whether he was there or not, so he called in sick rather than get a continuance so you could get your money. I wouldn''t loose faith in him, and if he doesn''t show up for the next one then you have a problem and can get a continuance from the Judge....

Q: 

If you need to take someone to court, and they had moved to a different state, how does this work?

A:  If you take him to small claims you file in the State you are in and it will be his responcibilty to show up to court. And as far as I know of you do not have to pay for his way...he does....she shouldn''t have taken off without clearing up his debts! ;) I think the best thing to do, would be nothing. Just forgive him for this debt as Jesus said to do "And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors." Matt. 6:12. I have less than a dollar to my name, but if one of my relatives owed me money and was about to move to another state, rather than taking them to court to get what''s owed me, I would just forgive them of this debt, and trust the Lord to take care of my needs. God bless you!!! :) I have one big question to ask. Did...

Q: 

Can an officer refuse to show me the radar when being pulled over for speeding?

A:  Im not sure but if you ask nicely he should let you see it. Probably the officer was pissed In most states he is obligated to show it to you if you ask to see it if not you can make him sign something saying he refuses to and the ticket is automatticaly thrown out If you want proof of the speed he clocked you at then yes you have a right to see the radar and the speed at which you were clocked. It is likely he could have clocked someones elses speed. I would take this further. You never know you might just get out a fine! Goodluck! im not sure When you contest the ticket, file a "Request for Discovery" with the court, including in the request the radar unit, among other things. If the radar unit is not produced, then you can petition the

Q: 

Can I be sued during the 30 days I have to dispute debt under the FDCPA?

A:  Their attorney does not have to help you because they don''t represent you. The condo assoc. may have referred this to the attorney before you sent the check and now he wants the money for his fees and you would be the one to pay them. I hope that you kept all correspondence and even the envelope from the attorney. Did you send a certified return receipt letter asking for him to validate the debt? Do you have a court date? If you do have court date be sure to show up and bring all documentation with you. Do not do anything with the check he sent back to you. This shows you made an attempt to pay the debt. I would talk to an attorney. Find one that gives the first consult for free and find out how to handle this. Remember the attorney wants...

Q: 

What if she never shows up?

A:  Number one: Contact your attorney before they leave. Number 2: Call the mother and say you are willing to come all the way up there and pick your daughter up at the time the Judge set up. Number 3: Record all details of every encounter with your ex and if problems keep coming up let your attorney know asap. Trust me if you let it slip this one time and say ''Ok keep her an extra week'' She will constantly keep pushing you to see how far you will let her go. The Judge set up times and dates for a reason. They know what they are doing and papers are meant to be followed, other wise it is considered contempt of court and she is denying you access to your daughter''. However, do not confront your ex in front of your daughter, no matter how old she is she is going to...

A:  Sorry.......you could not meet the job requirements.......no call no show for three days will get your fired in my UAW shop....that''s the one that will get you......not all the rest of the argument.......I''ve only fired one person outright.....with no rebuttal from the Union.......three days no call no show.......he was in prison for 1st degree murder........

Q: 

If a vehicle is owned by both parties who is intitled to said vehicle?

A:  The answer to who owns the vehicle depends simply on the wording on the title. If it Reads John AND Mary, then they both own it 50-50 and it will require both signatures to change ownership. If the title reads John OR Mary. Then either one can change ownership. It doesn''t matter one iota who took any furniture or who had what before marriage, who paid for the vehicle or how it was paid for. But.... if there is a loan on the vehicle the lender will want their money in full before they will allow a sale (transfer of ownership). No matter what happens, the loan company wants their money. That would have to be settled in the divorce proceedings. possession is 9/10th of the law.... All though if there is a lean on the vehicle then whoevers name is on the lien would be...

Q: 

Should I or shouldn''t I cut off my long hair to show my husband I will do ANYTHING to make things better?

A:  I would defiinately do a really hot new short style for sure. Long hair is just so time consuming and also takes much more money to mange as well as time too. I like to help you girls with long styles create the perfect short styles for your looks and styles that make you stand out from the crowd. When you cut it short, it is really important to go really stylish and not basic with the cut. It is best to go as drastic as possible but also as stylish as possible to make the change the most fun and the most noticable for others. Your man will be sure to want you with a hot new short style. But it should not take cutting your hair to get him back. You should just do it anyhow, who knows how many heads you will turn with the amazing new look. So either he will want to wash away the problems or...

Q: 

When do you think China will have living conditions similar to a first world country?

A:  as long as they have a communist form of government, NEVER!!!! Probably after they''ve dealt with their Y1K problem. I''d like to know what Y1K is too…..year 1 thousand? wtf? lol probably never, at least as far as life is today for first world countries. I mean, oil is just gonna get more and more expensive…and China is growing so rapidly because of the extreme supply side economics being used. The regulations are so lax….they need to have some sustainable development. At the current rate, by the time they “catch up,” there will be nothing left. After two decades of explosive growth, China might turn militaristic once they reach first world status or not. They might militaristic without reaching first world status or not. When countries industrialize they...

Q: 

What happens if a witness/victim does not show up in court to testify in Guilford, North Carolina

A:  In some domestic violence cases, both sides may have criminal liability, even though only one side was charged.  For instance, if your wife hit you, and during the argument you hit her back, you might be liable for assault on a female (which is a more serious crime in NC than simple assault).  In addition, if you were separated and had gone to her home (your former joint home), and she told you to leave, you are potentially liable for domestic criminal trespass. You may want to talk to a lawyer if you think that by testifying you would open yourself up to criminal liability. While you must ordinarily comply with a subpoena, in some cases - where complying would compromise your 5th amendment rights against self-incrimination - you can
