Q: 

On what grounds can I obtain sole custody of my child?

A:  Sole custody is granted when it is in the best interest of the child. As a general rule, visitation with both parents is considered in the best interest. The only way you would be awarded sole custody would be if you can prove the other parent is unfit and puts the child in danger. child Abuse and child Neglect have a much higher threshold than a general statement that you listed. If your complaint is against your ex, then I suggest you find a way to deal with him directly. After all, you slept with the guy. You reproduced with the guy. Now you want to ''screw'' the guy by obtaining ''sole custody'' of the

Q: 

Where can a convicted felon find a good paying JOB?

A:  We''ve learned that the guy who collects our trash makes nearly as much as my husband, a lawyer, does. It''s hard work, but it''s got to be done by somebody, and if you''re efficient and hardworking, you''ll head a crew or get a truck to yourself soon enough. They have pretty high turnover. Nursing homes and assisted living facilities are also always seeking help, either in the kitchen, housekeeping, or as health aides. There''s especially a shortage of men. The work involves lifting and can be depressing if you let it be, but the pay, while it starts low, grows, and you usually get health insurance. Pesticide companies, lawn treatment companies, and landscaping companies may pay better than you would expect. The work may be seasonal, but...

Q: 

Can I get a license in a state that I moved out of a few weeks ago?

A:  A - you have to get the licence where you live. Obtaining it otherwise is fraud. B - if you had a licence at 15, and moved to a state with 17 as the age, you couldn''t drive anyway, you are always subject to ALL the laws of the state you are driving in. You have to get your license in the state that''s your official residence. it would be pretty pointless. I don''t think that they would let you transfer the license if the driving age is different. You''d have to keep your Illinois license, which would be illegal since you don''t live there anymore. yes...up to 30 days, technically.....just don''t tell anyone, and make sure your mail is forwarded....or use the address of a good friend! You have to completely start over. It won''t work, going back to your old town -...

Q: 

How can I get the address of a debt collector when all I have is the phone number?

A:  try using http://www.411.com and doing reverse phone search When my daughter ran away, I used her cell phone bill to track phone numbers. You can go to the white pages and do a reverse phone look up. If it is a land line it will bring up the address. If it is a cell phone it will direct you to a different site where you have to pay a small amount for the information. If the address does not show in the report you can get your money back by sending an email to them. This works really well as long as the address is current. I use Anywho.com, and you can do a reverse lookup, but most companies aren''t listed. well you could call them and ask for it i think thats about the only way to get it, while you on the phone you could have the person your talking to look into your account to find out...

Q: 

Help Please Can Any Body Else Change Owner ship of a car?

A:  She can write as many letters as she likes, but if she tries to register it in her name without your signature or V5 she''ll fail. Suspect V5 applications are handed to the police Stolen Vehicle Squad for investigation. The only person who can change ownership of a vehicle is the owner. Anyone receiving his letters should tell the s-dad the problem is between yourself and you as its a financial problem. Make sure you keep the log book of the car in a safe place. I think she is story telling so hope you get the mess sorted soon. In the Uk a person would simply need to fill in a log book application form and send it off to DVLC, but they may contact the registered owner before issuing one. Either way, a log book is not proof of ownership. As long as the car is in your posession she''s going...

Q: 

What are the job prospects for a convicted felon?

A:  try to go for ones which don''t check if you have a criminal record - e.g. working with kids/vulnerable people etc is def a no go. Other positions where you might be handling cash will probably be a problem. What about working on a farm? Maybe she could volunteer somewhere (even just part time) and build up trust in that place - then maybe they would consider her for any positions that came up A few mistakes doesn''t mean you can''t succeed in life - but her record will make it more of a challenge good luck 1 in 6 people in the US are out of work or underemployed. So who would you hire first a person that has a clean record and just got laid off because of the economy or chick with a ''few felonies''? She needs to take what ever job she can get....

Q: 

Can a unwed father challenge an adoption of his child?

A:  First off people need to stop slamming this guy for not wanting to take the child himself. You have no idea and there is nothing wrong with adoption. Secondly yes he does have rights to the child. A father has 6 months to protest the adoption and take the child for himself. (This as actually happened in my family my uncle''s x-girlfriend tried to put their child up for adoption without him knowing) And yes if you daughter wants to give up the baby and the father wants the child then he will get it because he is a blood relative. Especially if his mother is going to be the primary care giver. You can go to court to try and stop it but most judges will favor leaving a...

Q: 

I am in school and need a job very bad. I am a convicted felon. Help anyone?

A:  You are going to have to start at the bottom, at some place like McDonald''s and work your way up. You will have to prove that you are dependable first. If you spent ten years in jail you are unlikely to get a professional position with a good company. Sorry, but there are lots of people looking for work. I''d suggest you get a skill set that is very in-demand. Noone wants to jeopardize their safety and job and life hiring a con. You should have thought of that before you made that mistake. You''d think that out of all the people looking for work, the last person theyd hire is a convict. Sorry, this is going to sound rude, but I would feel nervous having someone with a criminal background administering my corporate network. Networks contain a lot of valuable information. That''s going to...
