Why would the NH court ignore a statute of limitation that's expired AND an out of Jurisdiction law?
Thanks for getting back.
1. x boyfriend has sm. claims in NH court for $7k.
2. I wrote to the court saying I live in NC been here since '99.
it's out of the courts jurisdiction.
3. The statue of limitations ran out about decade ago in NH.
4. BotXXXXX XXXXXne he loaned me the promissory note back in 200!
I just got a letter from the court in NH saying they want an appearance in Feb. - RU KIDDING? So they ignored the limitations and jurisdiction?
that's fine...think I may need someone for a NH expert?
thanks for getting back...
Let me know!
hi, the court slip that I was forced to fill out / respond to only gave me 2 options. I called them when I received it and they said you have to choose one or go in default and the plaintiff wins.
1. District court hearing before a judge.
2. Superior Court trial by jury.
In looking at the the Note that was written in 2000, I just looked at the statute of limitations AND the jurisdiction write ups on the web. So, why would they have me appear in court after I told them I live in NC since 1999?
It was a form from the court. (pink slip)...
hi, where can I find the actual laws?
1. I'm not sure which state to pull them. I only pulled the NH ones.
2. I researched ehow - and it told me that on both counts they had expired.
I really don't know why they would have me travel to NH from NC to do this, esp. after I sent them the letter (as the court person told me to do).
$300 round trip for this?
So, do I need to get an attorney for NH?
That makes sense to me! Do you have any recommendations for an attorney in NH? And the 'type' of attorney?
