QUESTIONS

  • Am i suppose to get a lawyer appointed to me by the court for a criminal offense such as racing.
  • When I was terminated by my employer, i was given the option to voluntarily resign and get a good reference from them, or to be fired with no reference. In retrospect i believe that this was an attempt to preclude my being able to claim unemployment. Is it legal for an employer to present these as the only two options for an employee?
  • My Biological Sister committed suicide in Charlotte, NC and left behind a 2yr old. The father of the 2 yr old is exsisting located in Kenosha, WI as well as I in Racine, WI but he is not fit to take care of my 2 yr old niece. Being that my sister and niece both resided in NC for over 6 months I cannot petition for custody here so How do I gain custody for my niece in which I have rights to do so in charlotte, NC. I have already did a Self Serve petition but I dont know where to go from here. Please help before its too late.

  • The property management is asking that I completely replace the carpet in a bedroom. I disagree, and said that it could be easily fixed with spot treatment and carpet cleaning. As stated in the original lease document that I signed; number 8 states to return the house in "good condition with normal wear and tear." They informed me (over the phone) that "spots" smaller than a quarter would NEVER be considered normal wear and tear and would come back within three months of PROFESSIONAL carpet cleaning. I'm having a carpet company evaluate document. If the company agrees with me,w hat do I do?
