Q: 

Being sued for Breach of Contract

A:  Whoa - what 'breach of contract'?  You state there was no 'contract.' You just moved into a home, hired a cleaning lady (for all practical purposes--a complete stranger) 'for a day' and trusted her to recommend a plumber.  I bet you never took the time to find out if this contractor was state licensed. "My wife asked him what it would cost and he said he would have to look at it.  He came by the next morning to look at it talked to my wife and said he would need a part and would be back the next morning.  He didn't disclose what part and gave an estimate of offer or anything just said he would be back.  The next morning he started on the job. " That was the time to demand...

PersonalApplication Information Leeked--Q

A:  Originally Posted by seeker1111 A few weeks ago I submitted an application online for a major retail store chain. I was called in for an interview and things seemed to be going well.

I called the corporate office and after explaining the problem I was told they would...

Q: 

Is there legal problems for not fullfilling K1 visa

A:  I have never heard of a fiance petitioner being sued under the immigration laws for not following through with the marriage. As long as the information provided on the petition was valid and the intention to marry was bona fide at the time that she came over, the fact that he changed his mind or felt very uncomfortable going through with things in light of the car accident does not put him in any kind of jeopardy with immigration. A fiance is not required to marry a foreign national - that's why they get 90 days within which to complete the marriage once the foreign national arrives in the U.S. In fact, if the marriage is not entered into within those 90 days, the foreign national no longer has status in the U.s. and must leave. I can't speak to any general...

Q: 

Life Estate and Capital Gains

A:  Something is wrong with the premise of your question. Life estates are not normally alienable. I suspect you meant that your husband and 2 siblings were the remainder interest holders and that your mother-in-law held title to the property as a life estate holder or tenant while she was alive. If so, then your husband's interest became possessory when your mother-in-law passed away and he inherited the property at its then current market value. If your husband and siblings have since renovated and caused an increase in value, then they would indeed incur a tax liability for the increase. Good Luck! Just to clarify, you mean that she transferred the property to your husband and his siblings before she...

Q: 

Fraud/Illegal signing of documents

A:  Has anyone bothered to call the cops? That's how you get people charged with crimes. If this took place around June or July of 2005, it may be too late for criminal charges. "He also went in front of the Deputy Judge at the Probate Court and stated "She didn't have any assets to probate and I'm the only heir". " Why didn't your husband appear at this hearing? "Why, if they know that illegal things were done, isn't anyone doing anything about it?" Your husband needs to contact the police. I'm guessing they won't be impressed with a complaint made 18 months after this happened. "Why, if my father-in-law won't sign the closing papers, is he even receiving one cent?" The administrator of the e

Q: 

Please Help, About to lose my house!!!!

A:  Both transfers were intentionally done to defraud creditors. That's what it comes down to. Any property can be transferred with a lien on it. The lien goes with the property and the new owner gets stuck with it. You don't have to pay the child support, your husband does. But until he pays it, the house is stuck with the lien. Technically, the child support enforcement agency would have been able to go to court and get both fraudulent transfers reversed anyway. But as long as the lien is hanging you up, the result is the same. You and your husband have to address his child support issues or you'll never be able to refinance or sell without paying off the child support. He signed the house over on 11/15/04 to his father and it was recorded by the city on 11/23/04. "My...

Q: 

Phone calls during office hours

A:  The office manager has a point. If your friend is being paid to work at that office, your friend should expect to work--not attend to personal business. Of course, exceptions should be made for a true emergency--and here the devil is in the details: What constitutes a genuine emergency. Personally, I''d say only death or serious injury should interrupt office routine. If in doubt, tell the Office Manager, "I''d like to speak to so&so. Her child has been in an accident....her father has died....her house is on fire...." If the "emergency" is something that it is important for you to have settled immediately but not particularly earth shaking such as dinner plans or where are the car keys or what is the name of the plumber, the Office Manager has a right to decide...

Q: 

Child Support NC? North Carolina

A:  My husband and I had been dating 5 years and just recently got married.He had children before we started dating. The child in question has lived in the Bahamas with her grandparents since 2005. We recently got a call from a caseworker saying the "biological mother" had filed a case with NC Child Support Enforcement. Mind you, the child has not lived with her biological mother since 2005. And, the biological mother resides in NC.There are a lot of problems with this situation: 1) Doesnt the child have to reside in NC? 2) Doesnt the child have to live with the "biological mother" for her to persue child support? 3) Does anyone know about the child support laws in the Bahamas? We called and spoke with the child''s...

Q: 

What constitutes "At -Will"?

A:  You are confusing things in the employment law field. Being at-will can result in a termination as you mentioned and have seen often posted on this board. However, the rules (generallys speaking -- for I am only licensed in the state of California, not in Maryland) for public employees are different than for private employees. The key to begin the analysis is to know whether you were past your probationary time frame. Next, it is important to know whether you were a member of any union. If you want to post some more replies here, and we can follow up, great. Else, do consider speaking with an employment law attorney in your area about your situation. quote:Originally posted by leroypaul:I am employed by the state of Maryland. I contacted...
