6 Questions Answered
- Q. We have had 3 yr old grand daughter for 18 mos. Mom has severe mental illnesses, drug addict, dates inmates and felons
- A: In this type of case we use her last address or serve her by publication. I think it would be best to seek the emergency temporary custody and seek either a dependency case or an unfitness custody case. Please feel free to call at 440-213-3184 should you have further questions.
- Q. My ex husband and I were ordered to pay off a business loan at 50% each. He has stopped making payments
- A: You can file a Motion to show cause contempt of court against him. Then he will be forced to come to court and show cause why he should not be held in contempt.
- Q. My new employer pulled the offer the day I started. I already quit my old job. Do I have a case?
- A: Do you think the employer terminated you because of your credit report? If the employer used the credit report to fire you, it should have first provided you with a copy of your report PLUS a written statement of your consumer rights (a document which tells you how to contact the reporting company and dispute any errors) BEFORE it made any final decisions on your employment. The law (in this case the Fair Credit Reporting Act) is there to protect job applicants and employees who are declined employment or fired because of the contents of a background or credit report. The FCRA requires that the employer FIRST provide you that copy of the report plus a meaningful opportunity (usually 5 days) to review, discuss and even dispute the contents BEFORE making any final employment decision. An employer that fails to follow these rules may be liable to an employee or job applicant for lost wages or other financial damages. Did the employer give you a copy of the report?
