North Carlina Real Estate Law?
Can You Withdrawl A Real Estate Contract Prior To Closing In North Carolina Without Penalty?
Hi. Are you working with a Realtor? If you are, then you should let your Realtor know that you need to withdraw. Have you signed off on the home inspection yet? If you haven't, then you have your out without penalty. (Of course, you need to find something wrong!) If you have signed off on the home inspection, have you gone thru the appraisal from the bank yet? In some cases, if a home appraises for less than purchase price, and even with a 20 percent down payment, banks will not finance an over-priced home. Truly, your best bet is to let your Realtor know that you need to withdraw and see if your Realtor can help. If not, pay an attorney who specializes in real estate law, his/her hourly rate, and have the attorney go over the contract and advise you as to how to proceed. Good Luck!
Custory Vs. Guardianship?
What Is The Difference Between Guardianship And Custody In New York State.
Guardianship is a legal status, and a legal guardian has more rights over a child than a person who just has physical custody. Let's say it's a step above custody -- custody is physical custody, and a guardianship is both physical AND legal custody of a minor.
So, if you only have physical custody, you can't make educational, medical, or legal decisions for the child on your own, without the consent of the court. But with a guardianship, you can.

Thanks So Much!
1. It's great if you like science. For one thing, you get to work in a lot of different scientific areas instead of getting pigeonholed into one area. Second, you make a lot more money than you ever would as an engineer or scientist. In those fields you often have to stop doing science and get into management in order to advance past a certain point. As a patent attorney you can advance as far as you like and still get to do the interesting work.
2. There are so many different areas you can go into, it's hard to say. You can do patent application preparation and prosecution, you can do transactional work, you can work in acquisitions and due diligence, you can work in licensing, infringement and validity analysis, litigation, writing appeals -- the list is endless. Also your experience will be different depending on whether you choose to work for a corporation or in a law firm.
3. Biochemistry is a good field to be in if you intend to be a patent attorney, because patent attorneys with degrees in biochemistry are in demand. Whether biochemical, chemical, or electrical/mechanical engineers are more in demand varies year-to-year, but don't let that worry you. Take the course of study you love the most; that's the best way to ensure success whether you go on to be an intellectual property or patent attorney, or whether you stay in the scientific field itself. Patent attorneys have usually majored in electrical or mechanical (especially electrical) engineering, chemistry, biology, or biochemistry. I majored in physics.
4. I don't know what the starting salary is these days. When I started in 1993 in Washington, DC I started at $70,000/year at a law firm, but I'm sure the starting salary is much higher than that now.
5. In the United States, yes, you need to be a lawyer in order to become a patent attorney, as well as have a bachelors degree in a scientific field. So of course you have to go to law school. You could be just a patent agent with only a scientific degree, without going to law school, but they usually get paid much less -- when they can get work. Also, any attorney can be a litigator, and litigate intellectual property (patent, copyright, trademark, etc.) cases even if they haven't had a technical degree!
6. Most people take the patent "bar exam" soon after starting work for a law firm or corporation. I took it my final year in law school, which I believe helped me in my job search.
7. Most law students who want to go into intellectual property law get a summer internship at an intellectual property law firm after their second year in law school.
House Insurance... Legal Question?
I Bought A House 11 Years Ago And Have Been Insured Since With The Same Company. Now They Are Telling Me A Part Of The House Was Built Poorly And Therefore I Am Uninsurable And Until That Is Taken Off They Cannot Insure Me. My Question Is Legally How Can They Not Be Liable To Pay When They Insured My Home In The First Place??
Yes. It is legal. The insurance company can require you to correct problems to avoid claims. You have a condition that you are required to comply with their conditions in order to have the policy. You must correct the issues or they will cancel your policy.
If you feel you need help contact the Department of Insurance or Insurance Commissioner in your state.
Bottom line: Do what the insurance company asks you to do if you want to keep the insurance. And, if you don't no other insurance company will take you either.
Have A Legal Question About Felonies/Misdemeanor Charge?
My 20 Yr Old Sister Was Charged With Two Felonies And One Misdemeanor For Shoplifting At Nordstroms. She Plead Not Guilty To All Three. A Trial Date Is Set For Next Week. My Family Is Not Giving Me Any Info As They, As Always, Are Trying To Cover The Problem And Not Tell Me Anything. She Has No Prior Criminal Record. What Can Happen In This Case? Any Input Would Be Appreciated. Thanks.
As a former Loss Prevention Manager here is what I forsee. They will call in the people that apprehended her from Nordstrom. Since she is facing felony charges it mprobably means that she stole over 300.00 dollars worth of merchandise and was also with someone who stole as much, so she was aiding someone else. Or she had done this before and were waiting for her to come back so she can be charged for 2 counts. Since there is a misdamenor she probably tore the tags off of the items and ruined some of them which is vandalism. Unless she has receipts for everything, the Nordstrom people caused her harm or do not have any evidence like video tapes or witnesses I would say she has a case. But usually security officers are very good at what they do and Nordstroms has a good security system. If she would have pleaded guilty she might have gotten a big fine, 200hrs of community service and 2 years probation. Instead she could face jail time in a minimum security prison. 1 to 2 months if found guilty. If I were her I would walk into the court and tell the judge that she screwed up and is sorry.
