I was told by a supreme court clerk on the county level that i can't answer a summons without an attorney. what do i do A collection comp. summoned me to supreme court then sat on the summons.i have 3 days to answer for a debt i can prove i paid but to do so i need a lawyer. the lawyer will cost more than the debt that i don't owe and i don't want a judgement against me especially for something i don't owe Is a child fathered out of wedlock by an American diplomat to a foreign women on foreign soil entitled to US Citizenship by jus sanguinis? I have a Philippine maid we treat very well and she find in me a friend to talk to. She is pregnant. and does not want to abort as it is against the law of her country. the man she has been seeing for the past 7 months works for the American embassy and is married (his second marriage) and has a teenage daughter. He does not want to assume the news. Personal Injury Lawyers so my maid is left alone not knowing how she will do to keep working, give birth on her own, be able to pay for the rent that is more then her earnings, she asked me for help but I am French and I do not know the us law about all of this. she no longer wants to go back home as pregnant as her family will reject her. she is only 3 weeks pregnant and also needs financial support to pay the doctors bills etc. She does not want the child to be born in china nor Philippines. it is better for the child to come to be born in the US. she does not mind not reveling the truth the this guys wife and family. she is not running after an American citizenship neither. but I think not to be jugged by her Philippine friends and family back home it would be good for her to flee to the US. what are her rights there? she is ready to take care of the child by herself. she is 43 and she thinks she has to take her responsibilities. I admire her but life will defiantly be tough for her as she will hardly survive here with a child being just maid work. I will not always be here as I am planning to move out of china next year as our expat contract will finish in march. she will be left alone with no one to help her. Los Angeles Personal Injury Lawyers I definitly need to get some help for her. I do not thing diplomats are above the american law. he says he does not care anyway because he is someone working for the embassy in the visa section and he is a diplomat so he is protected and she cannot do nothing against him. what are her rights? I would like for her to be able to move to the US to give birth but even if she does not if the child is born in china, she can do the paternity test ask a court order for the man to provide his blood test and compare the both. then she will be able to declare the child to the American embassy here for the child to access his birth rights and be American. I think she should also get from the dad. child support and compensation for all the trouble during the pregnancy. he should also pay for the doctors and insurance for the both of them. Best Lawyers near you when she decided to take care of her child on her own. which is a lot. and raise him by herself. she is willing to protect the guy's family against a drama and divorce or other consequences if his family finds out about the whole story. her goal is not to destroy that jerk but just raise her child and give him access to his rights.

Why we're different...

Durable tortilla press belts and dependable service are what you need. At Taconic, that’s exactly what you get.

With our high performance nonstick belts, you’ll watch your belt changeovers go down while your productivity goes up. Let us help keep your production lines running smoothly.

R&D Driven by Innovation: Our brilliant engineering staff is constantly searching for ways to improve our current product line up while developing innovative, application specific, products which solve issues commonly found with competitive materials.

An example of this can be seen in the creation of our A1139, tortilla specific, material. This material was a by-product of research conducted on competitive products plagued with grease and compression forces problems. The outcome was an industry leading, wear and grease resistive, material at a competitive price point.

Thanks to our engineering staff, we pride ourselves in offering the best, most advanced, tortilla press belt materials on the market.

 Quality Control/Testing: Each coated master roll goes through a rigorous series of testing to ensure consistent quality while you, the end user, receive the most accurate data available for that product. Tensile strength, tear strength, dielectric strength and adhesion are just some of the test methods we use to guarantee each and every roll of material is up to as-advertised standards.

Customer Service: Selling product to a customer in need is easy, but what comes after that? For many, the answer is apparently “not much”. Taconic’s customer service staff is dedicated to maintaining one hundred percent customer satisfaction. Whether it’s during the sale, immediately after purchase or several years down the road, our customer service staff will be there to answer any questions or address concerns that may arise.
