    Lawyers on Board I have a question?

    by Tagzz
    2014-08-25 12:40:21

    I served my wife divorce papers after her multiple affairs she has had, on the 11th of this month, I was told she needed to have them signed and notarized within 20 days... Well, she said her attorney made some tweaks on the papers served... Is this legal? Also, We have been having the kids every other week, now that she has an attorney she says I get them every other weekend, this hasn't went before a judge, I meet with my attorney on September 4th... Nothing is signed on her end I guarantee it... Please help me out, This bitch is trying to control everything...

    Is there anybody here that owns/drives a Jeep Rubicon?

    by Tagzz
    2014-07-14 10:22:19

    I am wanting to do some modifications to my new (to me) Jeep I just purchased but not sure what to start on... I travel 1 hour a day just to work and listen to music non stop. Should I replace the OEM Stereo with an aftermarket one? And if so where should I go in SLC to have this done and not get screwed over? Other things I want to do are eventually a suspension lift, air intake, exhaust, hard top, etc... Any input would be appreciated, Just trying to take my mind off of what has happened to me and give myself something to look forward too...

    I haven't had a vacation in years and want to take one this year to see the Utes play. I was thinking Michigan or Stanford... If any of you are how soon are you booking all of your stuff as far as flight and hotel? I have never been to Michigan but I know there are plenty on here that could give me some great advice.

    2014-02-04 17:27:50

    Unfortunately he got worse throughout last week and by the time it was ready to go for his rides Cancer had got the best of him... Jethro Packer Hatch died Saturday night at 11:37 and my wife and I were able to be there with him to comfort him as he took his final breath... A lot of planning went into what Shasta and Loyter did and I want you guys to know how much it meant to him... 18 is too young to go from this life but we know he is in a beautiful place where he is pain free... Utefans.net is not only a website for us Ute Fanatics but we are a brother hood and I appreciate everything everybody has done for me... Thanks again guys!!

    I have a question that has been bugging me for 4 months now...

    by Tagzz
    2014-01-03 09:57:06

    I was told by my employer that I would be getting a raise in August... Months dragged on and on December 1st my boss comes to me and says, "You should be seeing your raise on your next paycheck" Well, 3 paychecks have passed and still no raise... What should I do? I'm tired of busting my ass, My customers love me and specifically ask for me when they have problems... Right now I feel like I don't mean shit to the company and that I am not worth what I think I am. It makes me want to look for another Job and get back to Utah... Anybody have any words of Wisdom for me? TIA
