I have a situation with my business that I would like some

Hi, I have a situation with my business that I would like some direction on. I own a permanent placement (recruiting firm), we work nationwide. I was working with a client (we are under a written agreement- initiated by my company), on several job openings. I did one placement with them in Jan 2016 with terms of payment in 30 days. After working with this client on other locations, in May, I terminated the agreement verbally because they were very unprofessional in the treatment of my cnadidates. They proceeded to contact my cnadidates via phone and email. One candidate sent me an email from the client company stating they are no longer working with me. I sent them an email including that email exchange stating the termination of the agreement and to refrain from contacting my candidates. Does this need to be in a formal letter mailed?Also, the candidate that I placed with them in Jan is very unhappy and I found him a new job with a different company. I want to make sure I'm covere

I had my divorce papers done on mydivorcepapers.com. I have

Hello! I had my divorce papers done on mydivorcepapers.com. I have filed the petition with Oklahoma county court. The decree of divorce does not have our SSN's printed on the form. The lines are blank. Can I fill in the SSN's by hand before the judge. I also want to have my name changed back to my maiden name. Can that be changed as well? I am trying to speed this up and don't have the money to pay for new documents or to pay to file again. My husband is refusing to sign until the changes are made. I did not have him served, we met with the papers and he was to sign and mail them back but now refuses to do so. What can I do?

I am seeking to understand a Writ of Scire Facias that I

I am seeking to understand a Writ of Scire Facias that I received in the mail from a creditor whose debt was discharged in a bankruptcy almost 5 years ago. I am in the state of Georgia. Do you practice in GA or have resources here?JA: For starters, can you tell me where you are? State bankruptcy laws go hand-in-hand with federal ones.Customer: GeorgiaJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: Our bankruptcy discharge was filed and reported almost 5 years ago. As for this debt, this is the first documentation I have received; the creditor seemed to have filed in another county than my county of residence, so I did not know this potential judgment existed until this week.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: No, that is it. Thank you.

I got a call from an old air force buddy saying a warrant

I got a call from an old air force buddy saying a warrant has been issued for my arrest for non payment of a loan they gave me 18 years ago. I dont remember them loaning me money at all. We shared an apartment, and he paid his share of the rent via check, so Im thinking he is using an old rent check as "proof" of a loan? Bottom line, IF there was such a loan 18 years ago, would an arrest warrant be issued?JA: Since laws vary from place to place, what state is this in? And when was the warrant issued?Customer: He said it was Fairfax Virginia. I havent lived there since 1986. He didnt say when the warrant was issuedJA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: noJA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?Customer: not that I can think of

I rented a vacation rental home for a week in North Carolina

I rented a vacation rental home for a week in North Carolina earlier this month. The owner did not provide or require a signed rental agreement. The owner did not require a damage deposit or offer the purchase of damage insurance. The owner contacted me through email three days after our departure about alleged damages to two stand up paddle boards. I do not feel we caused any damages to these paddle boards. The owner did not provide any cost estimate for repair or replacement. The email only listed the alleged damage to the paddle boards and a request to "do something about it". What is my responsibilities as a tenant?
