I'm in the middle of a child custody battle with my ex-wife.

Hello. I'm in the middle of a child custody battle with my ex-wife. It's a bitter and ugly mess. Anyway, to make a long story short, when I picked up my daughter on Friday (this weekend). I sat there and waited for 20 minutes. I called my daughter's cell phone, but it went to voicemail since it was turned off (battery dead?). And this happens all the time. I couldn't knock on the door, since my ex-wife told me that she doesn't want me knocking on her door or on her new husband's property. Needless to say, it's a bad situation. The only good thing is that my daughter is on my side and wants to live with me. Well, anyway, ....JA: Because family law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: IllinoisJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: Yes, moment. I didn't know you'd respond so quickly. Anyway, .... when she finally came to my car, I was furious. She made me wait there so long and didn't even have her cell phone on. So I guess she charged it a bit while I was waiting. Anyway, she comes to my vehicle, gets in, we leave ... and while we are driving back to my place, she accidentally made a "Butt call" via her cell phone (to her mother) and her mother heard me yell, scream and curse at my daughter. I know this, because when I got home, my ex-wife sent me some text messages berrating me about cursing out my daughter ... and said she was going to call the police if she didn't talk to my daughter to make sure she was ok.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: Moment .... So my daughter called her mother and assured her that everything was ok.

I bought a mobile home off of craigslist in marshall nc .00.

I bought a mobile home off of craigslist in marshall nc for 3750.00. It showed 3 pictures of the condition of the home,I requested more and the seller sent (4) more. From what I could tell the home looked to be in fairly good shape. In order for the seller to hold the property till I could veiw it in person he wanted payment in full. I am an over the road truck driver and was due home within a week. I sent the seller a check for payment in full and he was suppose to send clear title. He called me when he recieved my check and one hour later the funds cleared my account. When I returned home a few days later I made arrangement to go to nc to view this property on a saturday and pickup title in person.His girlfriend was a notery. He met myself and my sister in a parking lot of a food store handed me a title with another persons name no bill of sale no address. we followed him to the home to be viewed. The pictures he sent to me did not reveal the true condition of this home. So,I requested the funds be returned and agreed to give the seller 500.00 for his troubles. He stated he had put a deposit down on something and that he would have to call off his deal with another party and get back with me on monday the next business day. This was acceptable too me. Monday came and went. I left meassages and text meassages with no reply back. A week later I get a call from a person that said, I had a mobile home for sale. I told the interested party of the condition he agreed to the purchase,but never came up with the money to buy it. I then get a phone call from the exbrother inlaw that the home needed to be moved asap because the DOT was paving the roads there, The home set along the side of road on parents property and had no wheels under neath it. I also learned that this had been going on for over one year and the person that signed the title was not the owner. On June 27th I sent out a certified letter requesting to resolve this matter,other wise I would have to take him to small claims court. I have never signed any documents or their is no bill of sale with my name on it. He finally text me back on july 08, that the pictures sent represent the home the sale was final and it needed to be moved. Do I have the right to take him to small claims court? Sincerely,Terrie Broussard
