Good Custody Law Consultation in Greensboro I had a quick consultation with Krispen and was pretty amazed by his knowledge, it was paid consultation and I got the best return for my investment. It's tough to find a Greensboro child custody lawyer with true passion and knowledge towards the client and the case but to my surprise Krispen was a spot on gem. I wont be able to disclose about my personal issues but the tips, insights and actionable advice he gave me really helped me. He powered me with knowledge and assured me that he is with me if I ever needed him. Definitely, recommend him as one of the top child custody lawyers in Greensboro, NC.

Q. I need to know what I should do about taking a drug test for department of social services
A: I'd just like to stick to answering your question:

(a) Yes, you have the right to refuse the drug test on any grounds.

(b) If you do, I'd make sure to have a private screen at your soonest opportunity following the DSS request.

(c) Not all Judges prefer hair follicle. Hair is just as easy, or easier, to manipulate via chemical hair treatments, as urine-- even more so, if urine is extracted under controlled timing and environment.

(d) If you choose to submit to the DSS request, make sure you follow up as soon as realistically possible with a private test of your own.

(e) If you can afford to, I'd involve an attorney in this process, as an attorney can preserve confidentiality with regard to the results of all private tests. ... Read More
Q. My husband bought our marital/family home prior to our date of marriage and I was never added to the deed or mortgage.
A: Your husband owns the home, but any mortgage payments during the course of the marriage could constitute marital property.

It is a complex situation and you'll need to consult a lawyer.
Q. My 14 yr old son is threatening to runaway. Who can I contact to try and stop this before it happens
A: As much as I hate to say this, there aren't any good options, short of serious vigilance and professional counseling.

Your other options:

(a) Call the police, who will say they don't normally act in that kind of capacity -- still, they might agree to give him a talking to;

(b) Call DSS -- if you want them to be a part of your family's life for potentially a much longer time than any reasonable person probably would.
