Q: 

How to include my children in my citizenship application?

A:  I am applying for US Citizenship. I have two daughters at ages of 14 and 15. Should I complete a separate application for each or can I use my form to include them? Many Thanks. Has Under a new law that became effective on February 27, 2001, your child will automatically become a U.S. citizen when you naturalize if the following conditions are met: (1) the child is under the age of 18, and (2) he/she is residing in your legal and physical custody in the U.S., and (3) he/she is a lawful permanent resident (or begins to reside in the U.S. as a lawful permanent resident before reaching the age of 18.) It is very...

Q: 

WA v. CA - age of Reason/Choice?

A:  Family court judges can listen to the opinion of a teenager on a custody issue but, to my knowledge, in only one state is that opinion binding. That state is GA and, even there the kid must be at least 14 years of age. I suspect that a WA judge could solicit the opinion of your children, if he or she wanted to do so. But, their opinions would not binding upon the judge in either WA or CA. As a practical matter, you would have to sue for custody in WA since that is where he and the children live (have legal residency). It is also the state that issued the order that you would like to modify. You don't have any choice if you want custody. Custody battles are expensive. By your own admission, you don't have a...

Q: 

Can teenage children decide to live with a step-parent who holds no legal custody if the parents seperated?

A:  If the adults cannot agree among themselves, the court will decide where the children live. The choices available to the court are not just the two legal parents. As long as the court''s decision is in the best interest of the children, the court can place the children with anyone. For example, if living with either legal parents would likely lead to harm to the children, the court can place the children elsewhere.If the two legal parents do not allow the children to live with a stepparent, unless the legal parents are found to be unfit by the court, the court likely will not place the children with the stepparent even if the children want to be with the stepparent. Minors do not get to...

Q: 

divorce!!!…????

A:  really, i know it may seem like a dumb idea, but talk to them about it… tell them how it affects you. if that doesn''t work just tell them both to piss off… Honey, divorce doesn;t always mean peace. People who can''t get along when they''re married won''t magically get along when they are divorced and they still have to share the kids and the money. It can be better to be apart if the fighting is really terrible. Sometimes people just can''t be trusted to act like grownups. I hope everything works out for your family. It won''t last forever, I promise. You will grow up and be out of there soon. My parents are divorced. And have been for the longest time. They still fight. Over...

Q: 

divorce??????????????

A:  My parents were divorced. It affected me for a long time. Now, I have been married twenty years and I treat my marriage like it were made of gold. What you are feeling is natural – I felt the same way – but it doesn''t dictate who YOU are or how you will live YOUR life. It will be ok. Time is the only cure. Keep your head up and take it day by day. your parents love you, and as long as they dont try to make you choose one or the other, its between them and has nothing to do with you. hey dont worry my parents r gonna get divorced 2 and its so pressure i cry all the time dont worry when my mom told me that she was leaving my dad...

Q: 

If a woman divorces her husband and he dies, does she get social security?

A:  the laws change daily, as I understand it he would have had to be married 7 years to his last wife for her to qualify for his SS, however since your mom was the longer enduring marriage she is the principle wife, thus she qualifies before second wife. At her retirement age she is entitled to 1/2 of his SS or the whole of her own SS. She will have to pick which one is the more money. I would be entitled to my former husbands SS (he never remarried) as we were married 20 years. But I remarried so do not qualify except for 1/2 of present husbands SS. Your mother is young yet and who knows what is down the road, the laws may change, or she may remarry but 64 is still a way off. You may inquire...

Q: 

Different age on passport and birth certificate?

A:  I would write to the relevant authorities, send them a copy of the certificate (Don''t send the original), and explain that you have only just found out about the discrepancy. omg - i heard of this happening decades ago (to people who are now 50+) but I didn''t know this was still happening now! it probably depends on the country where you got our brith certicate & passport. what a mess - maybe contact the authorities that issued the passport? The number on your passport doesn''t have a real affect on your life. Aside from custom agents believing you are 2 years older, i don''t see any shortcomings. However, if you try to change the passport, you might open a can of worms. The truth might be exposed, that your parents defrauded the...

Q: 

Ex violating divorce decree/order - proving contempt?

A:  "My husband's ex-wife continues to violate their divorce decree/order by not allowing him access to his son on his scheduled residential times" He can file a contempt motion with the court. In many/most states, the police are not going to be involved in enforcing a civil order, like visitation. He chose this woman, it's his problem to enforce his rights. "bad mouthing him in front of the child" Hard to enforce without dragging the child into it. "having adult conversations in front of the child" The government really has no business telling a parent they can't do this. Custody orders often contain 'feel good' orders. The court WANTS people to follow the order because it is there, but doesn't expect to have any...

Q: 

Need a divorce urgently please let me know the procedure.Afraid of going to court again and again.?

A:  Are there children involved? If no, go to the court house, file for divorce, let the clerk know both parties want the divorce and there are no children or personal property, the day you see the judge you will be granted the divorce if both parties agree. The only reason you need a lawyer is if the two of you are seeking different things in the divorce but if you both have a pre-drawn contract to show the judge (what you both agree to) and you both are doing this willingly a lawyer really is not needed. If you do get a lawyer you will need two separate lawyers unless you find one that will...
