Q: 

Should birth-parents have to pay to place a child?

A:  You know I dont think so. It might discourage people from giving their baby up for adoption and if they feel like they need to do that, there''s a reason. I''ve seen what it does to kids, if their mother wants to be selfish and keep the baby when she has no idea how or even want to. Children are later taken away by Children''s Services-and if they havent yet-they should. i think so... but if you cant afford it, then its k They should have to pay more. They should of thought about everything before and there lucky they can put there baby up for adoption. Why should ''birth-parents'' have to pay anything? I thought a child garnered via adoption (especially a newborn), was a ''gift'' from God!! Do you have to ''pay''...

Q: 

I hit a dog with my car. Will I have to pay the deductible?

A:  Yup, you have to pay the deductible, though some companies call hitting an animal a Comprehensive claim rather than Collision, so if your Comp deductible is lower, that may be the case. If the company makes the check to you, you can do what you want to with it, but be sure the damage doesn''t affect safety, like the muffler or exhaurst system--carbon monoxide, remember....

Q: 

My bro was drunk driving and hit a traffic light, i think he will have to pay damages to the council ?

A:  If he is prosecuted for the drink driving, then he would probably have to pay for the repairs to the traffic lights as part of his punishment, along with points on his license and a fine. Yes his PD (property damage liability) insurance would pay for the damaged traffic light. But once he submits the bill to them and they find out he was drunk when this happened, his insurance rates will go up for the next 3 years due to this. They may even decide not to renew him and he maybe looking at high risk auto insurance to buy due to the dui. He hit the traffic light and he owes for the repairs or replacement period. If not for the drunk driving, this would have never happened. Over 10 years as a auto adjuster, have paid for utility boxes,...

Q: 

am i entitled to a free eye test or do i have to pay?

A:  I don''t think that you have to pay if you are claiming ESA. You have to pay as you are not in receipt of income based ESA.http://www.nhs.uk/chq...=68&SubCategoryID=157 All large Tesco stores with opticians in them are offering free eye tests to anyone at the moment. Well i didn''t have to pay in Feb just gone, I was on contribution based ESA. try thishttp://www.nhs.uk/nhs...rescriptioncosts.aspx...

Q: 

Child Support - Is it possible I would have to pay him?

A:  If I understand your post correctly... Nope. You are confusing Spousal Support with child support. Child support is paid by the Non-Custodial parent to the parent awarded custody of the minor child "For the benefit of the child". So your answer is yes, if you do not retain custody and no, if you do. try this site and play around with the figures- http://www.west.net/~ivguy/testcalc.html if dad is making 45k a year and mom is making 65K a year and custody is split---mom could be paying support to dad (245$ a month I think I got) Wait wait, I guess I mis-understood... She asked: "I earn $65K in CA and I have 90% custody of our daughter and he has 10% visitation. Is there a chance I will have to pay him child support because I...

Q: 

Do we have to pay child support and half college expenses

A:  "Do I have to pay for child support on top of these expenses..." We can't know from here what the order says about when child support ends; normally it ends at 18 (or 19 if they're still in high school). "I also pay for all her medical and her mother was ordered to pay it and has access to it as well." So hold mother to court order? "Can I get a modification so that I can pay the school or my daughter instead." Does the order tell you that you have to pay college expense to the mother directly? Once daughter is an adult, she is outside the mother's control, so I can't imagine why you couldn't...

Q: 

Do have to pay legal fees if I'm not at fault?

A:  Originally posted by kctjohnson What is the name of your state? Arizona My response: Okay, my first bit of advice after having read your post, would be to immediately have yourself and your car demagnetized. Now, on to your facts and questions - - You said - - "Last month, I was at a shopping mall parking lot and I was trying to exit the lot and waited for the car ahead of me to proceed. My car was hit when a woman backed out of her parking spot and did not see my car behind her. She left me her name and contact number and said she would pay for the damages. I''ve been trying to contact her but to no avail. I was told I should take it to small claims court, but will I have to pay court...

Q: 

Do I have to pay or not and can I be sued?

A:  This one is pretty simple.... As to the tax issue: You need to pay the tax. Anytime that a person purchases merchandise for their wholesale account, and then ''converts'' that company property to personal use, they must pay sales tax on it (as if it had been purchased retail). Considering the situation, I would use the tax tables in affect at that time and calculate the tax based on the price you paid (not retail). Then make a check payable to the state taxing authority (just to make sure that she doesn''t ''forget'' about the tax). As for the ''designer fee'', tell her to pound sand. Unless you BOTH agreed to a fee being charged, she cannot come back ''after the fact'' and create a unilateral contractual basis....

Q: 

Will Ex-Husband Have to pay attorney''s fees

A:  . Maybe. Maybe not. I took my ex to court when he refused to agree to pay a nickle of child support toward our child's expenses. The custody order had been in place and was a good order. There was no change of circumstances that would have justified a modification of the custody order. I was in a financial hardship directly because my ex refused to pay child support during our four-year separation. I hired an atty to seek court-ordered child support. Thus, a further financial hardship. My atty asked for child support and legal fees. My ex's atty filed (as I predicted) what I considered a frivolous cross-motion seeking a modification of the custody order...
