Q: 

Can a mexican passport holder living in the u.s. illegally get his thai visa made here?

A:  Your friend does not belong in the United States. He has enough money for a trip to Thailand yet couldn''t come here legally? All I can suggest is for him to take his criminal self back to Mexico and fly from their to Thailand. After, he should just stay there. Your friend can get a visa here, but he is risking getting detained when he boards the plane. I''ve seen Customs and Border Patrol pull waiting passengers aside and check their documents. He may also be denied a visa by the consulate if they examine his passport and don''t see a valid entry for the US. The Thai consulate requires citizens of many developing countries to submit evidence of lawful residence in the US. Mexico is not one of those countries, but his passport may get checked. When I traveled...

Q: 

Is it legal for an employer to conduct a meeting with an employee in the dark with a light shining on them?

A:  an employment lawyer can not help you, what you boss did is not illegal and neither is granting you time off, unless you qualify for FMLA, try this site (i''ve used it): http://topfin4.notlong.com/2AADvmx Your boss is playing games with you. Call an employment lawyer. Where are you working? I''ve never heard of such a thing before - your boss is psychotic and not in a good way. You sound a little off too, and there''s something you''re not telling us. It''s not illegal for a boss to put you in a dark room and interrogate you like some old police movie, but I can''t think of any employer that would want that going on. You need to go to HR and tell them your concerns. This is bizarre. My suggestion is that you get on the phone and talk to an...

Q: 

How can a secured party take advantage of the 1099oid tax form?

A:  A 1099 form of any sort (oid, int, misc. income, etc) is simply a report to both the recipient of the income and the IRS that such income was paid to the recipient. The recipient of the income, in turn, is required to report said income as such on his/her tax return for the year in which it is received. You would need to provide more information about what you are trying to do here for me to answer this more completely. Do you mean by secured party that you are selling the property on contract or through an installment agreement for deed? If that is the case, then you may be required to report any interest income you are receiving under such an agreement. There are many factors involved in a seller financing arrangement. I would need to know more particulars about the arrangement. Please...

Q: 

Can a foreigner marry an American after the Prop 8 ban?

A:  Doubtful. We''re still several years away from Federal recognition of gay marriage. The current ruling, even if the stay is lifted, would only affect that Federal District (well, actually it would affect all of California because they have jurisdiction to decide the case). If the appeal goes to the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals, and they uphold the ruling, it would affect laws in all States governed by that Court. If it goes to the Supreme Court, it would affect State laws in all 50 States. However, the challenge is based on the 14th amendment, which applies to the States, not to the Federal Government. A second challenge, specifically to the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) would have to be raised under the 5th amendment, which is essentially...

Q: 

In a foreclosure can a second mortgage still come after the borrower?

A:  Good question. I'm under the impression it's the responsibility of the second mortgage holder to have a contract stating they would be notified by first mortgage company and/or the first mortgage payer if there's a problem. Note: This is an opinion only....

Q: 

Can a lunch break be scheduled for the first hour of work time?

A:  From various sites, looks like it''s legal since her remaining time is just 5 hours. And OSHA has nothing to do with breaks. It''s for safety issues. You are looking at the WRONG site. OSHA is ONLY concerned with workplace safety, NOT hours or when your lunch break is. You need to look up the state labor board....

Q: 

Can a home addition be added to the mortgage?

A:  Hi Chequita, Good question! Your original mortgage can''t be changed (without being ''refinanced,'' but your lender can add a HELOC (Home Equity Line of Credit). A HELOC is a 2nd mortgage. That loan would be based on your equity (today''s HELOC loans are up to 80% usually.) You would also have to qualify for the payments based on your income. Check with your local lender for your home''s value and loan amount based on your qualifications. If you are in the South Bay, I''d be happy to provide a FREE market analysis (for your home value) and give you a referral to one of our partners for financing. There is no charge for a financing ''pre-approval'' and usually can be completed over the telephone. Call me at 310-534-3940 Charlie:) [img][/img]...
