hello. i put the husbands name down as defendant one & her name as defendant two. their lawyer told me that he agrees that he owes me money but that she isn't party to that. the way i understand the law here in nc is that if you are leagally married then the spouse is liable for the money owed also. their lawyer said that only applied to medical bills & one other thing that i don't remember. he wants me to sign a notice of voluntary dismissal with prejudice as to his wife being on the paper. i need to know if i could be
sued for her losing her job if i win judgement. thanks steve.
hello again. what is the difference in without prejudice & prejudice. thanks for your help steve
