I have a 46 year old sister with Down Syndrome. She has the

I have a 46 year old sister with Down Syndrome. She has the mentality of a child around 8 years old. Both of our parents have died. My father remarried after my mother died and we found out that the woman he married was his former mistress and my sister is his and this woman's daughter. They were married for 18 years after my mother died. The woman has never tried to readopt, or gain custody of her. My sister has only recently learned that this woman is her biological mother. Since my father has died, no one actually has custody of my sister. I have told her she is always welcome to come live with me if she wants. This has caused a big problem. I have started proceedings to gain guardianship so that if and when this 80 something year old woman dies, someone will be legally responsible to take care of her. The woman is fighting me on the guardianship even though I have no plans to change anything, i.e., her living arrangement or financial support.JA: What state are you in? It matters because laws vary by location. Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: I live in North Carolina. Yes, I have filed with an old family attorney. He is very slow to respond and is not really helping us move forward. I am anxious to move forward in a more aggressive manner as after 46 years, sis has decided not to join the family for Christmas celebrations and has written me a letter telling me she is terminating our sister relationship. Whenever I call her, the woman is always with her and she is not allowed private conversations and when any type of discussing about any of this she takes the phone and the woman and I get into unproductive arguments. I need an attorney who will help me and I need to know what my options are. Can you help?JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I don't know. Is there anything else he needs to know first? And by connecting, what do you mean?

I live in SC and heard about a law in NC where I could sue the person who is having an affair with my wife. Is that true. I read it is sometimes just for leverage, but curious if I needed to be in NC as well to sue the person under NC law.
