Victory – Fathers’ Visitation Restored

Our Dummit Fradin family law attorney won a Motion for Contempt in Greensboro and restored visitation of a one-year-old baby to her father. What is a Motion for Contempt? After a final court order in a family law case, both parties must abide by the agreed terms in the court order. If either party refuses or fails to comply with any portion of the court order, the second party can file a motion for contempt. The motion basically forces the non-compliant party to abide by the court order or they could face jail time or fines.

Motion for Appropriate Relief Granted in Guilford County

Our client, like many others, got a dreaded speeding ticket in Guilford County. Unfortunately, Guilford County has a new policy that makes it difficult to get a reduction on any speeding charge where the top speed is over 90 miles per hour. So, our client hired legal counsel. Attempting a Prayer for Judgement Continued Her previous lawyer helped her get a Prayer for Judgement Continued. This is a motion unique to North Carolina that allows people with traffic violations to plead guilty to an offense and ask for a Prayer for Judgement from the judge. If the judge grants the Prayer for Judgement, the offense is not entered against the defendant. It is still documented, but points are not added to the person's driving record. However, one caveat is that there's a limit to the number of Prayers for Judgement a judge can grant per household. And, the [...]

Appeal Won for Civil Revocation of a CDL

A Greensboro client with a commercial driver's license, or CDL, was charged with DWI in Guilford County. As a result, our client was also hit with a civil revocation of his CDL, also known as a CVR. A civil revocation of a CDL can result in disqualification from using a CDL for one year. This means that CDL holders also face potentially losing their job if the civil revocation stands. One of the biggest obstacles to handling these types of cases is that clients have exactly 10 days to appeal a civil revocation of a CDL. Otherwise, the revocation is allowed to stand and it will disqualify their CDL. Fortunately, our Greensboro client advised us of his issue with only a few days left to petition for a hearing. Criminal defense attorney Patrick Apple filed a strong motion in opposition to the civil revocation and scheduled a hearing [...]

Our Greensboro immigration attorney successfully reunited a client with his wife and young daughter after the family had endured nearly four years of heartbreaking separation.

Nuestra abogada de inmigración reunió exitosamente a un cliente con su esposa y su hija después de que la familia había soportado casi cuatro años de separación desgarradora. La embajada de los Estados Unidos había acusado falsamente al ciudadano de los Estados Unidos y su esposa de tener un matrimonio "falso" y había negado la visa de la esposa. La abogada pudo superar la negación y revertir la confusión reduciendo los trámites burocráticos y las falsas suposiciones para dar a esta [...]

Father Wins in Child Custody Modification Dispute

Attorney: Jessica Culver Type of Case: Child Custody Modification - Rule 60 Motion to Set Aside Case Result: Successfully Defended Against Rule 60 Motion and Preserved the Standing Custody Order County: Guilford County Greensboro family law attorney, Jessica Culver, represented a father in a child custody modification trial in Guilford County. The mother's visitation at the time was limited to every other week. In an attempt to change this, she filed a Rule 60 Motion with the court. This Rule 60 motion would ask the court to set aside the custody order and restore her 50/50 custody rights. With this motion, the father risked losing Primary Custody and would have had to accept 50/50 custody. Not to mention, the conditions at the mother's house were unfavorable. Thus, it was not in the best interest of the child to spend half his time there. Analyzing the Opposing Party's Rule [...]
