Q: 

custody/ residency problem

A:  as far as i know you can''t kidnap your own children, unless you are going specifically against a court order. Please dont just take them, talking is honestly the best way, unless you fear for their safety Your best bet is to do things properly and get a residence order. You need to see a solicitor who specialises in family law. The court would ask a CAFCAS officer to interview all parties concerned individually. (The children are interviewed without the parents). At the ages of 10 and 11, your children are more than capable of making up their own minds about where they want to live. A word of warning - children in this situation are notorious at chopping and changing their minds. They may have an argument with the...

Q: 

Following Too Close - Oregon

A:  If you aren't eligible for traffic school, you aren't eligible for traffic school. Nothing you can do about that. I doubt if you are going to get the court venue change for your convenience. Each county or city collects its money for itself. I once had to drive 3 hours across AZ for a ticket I got in eastern AZ. Looks like you were cited for 811.485 (a) Drives a motor vehicle so as to follow another vehicle more closely than is reasonable and prudent, having due regard for the speed of the vehicles and the traffic upon, and condition of, the highway. Any time a citation uses the words "reasonable and prudent" you have a much better opportunity to defend if you can convince the judge that your movements WERE reasonable and prudent under the circumstances. Considering...

Q: 

malpratice or not

A:  The question that any attorney is going to ask you is "What are the damages?" Did the delay of three hours in the diagnosis have any impact on the eventual outcome of your daughter's case? I suspect that it had none. If you feel strongly that the behavior of the first hospital was inappropriate, you can complain to the appropriate licensing and regulatory agencies in your state. In Texas, physician assistants are regulated to the Texas Medical Board in Austin. You may wish to contact the board if the PA failed to meet the standard of care. Also the MD supervising the PA. Hello, This is just an example of medical malpractice one can not do much about. The misdiagnosis happened to me. Back in 1979, I suffered a...

Q: 

How to get emancipated in California?

A:  Are you aware that the age of consent in California is EIGHTEEN (18), not 15? And if you have a 5 month old baby, you were probably pregnant at the age of 14, which is a major no-no called statutory rape. I don''t know how old your boyfriend is but someone should have called the cops on him. Further, you cannot get emancipated at the age of 15 in California unless you are a major celebrity like Drew Barrymore...and even then, you need the consent of your parents AND the consent of a judge, plus you must be completely self-sufficient and not dependent on anyone else. I would be very careful if I were you as if your boyfriend is an adult, or even 17, he could end up in...

Q: 

Maryland Rental law

A:  If your contract states that you have to pay extra each month for your pet, than yes you will need to pay them the balance. However, if they verbally told you that your pet rent would start in February than you may not have to pay the back sum. If the amount you owe is substantial, I would first let them tell you that your obligated to pay back the whole sum and than threaten them you will be talking with your lawyer regarding this issue. I''m not a lawyer however, I have been in similar circumstances in the past. Once you threaten that you will be taking legal action against their company, more times than none, they will back down. I am leasing a two bedroom condo for $1200, but sublet one of the rooms to someone else.The other...

Q: 

Interstate Child Support Custody Issue--Q

A:  I found out that at the age of 13, a child can choose who he/she would like to live with and residency can be established at 6 months. Are there any free forms available that I can have completed prior to meeting with a lawyer?...

Q: 

Need Help Please--Q

A:  I too was emancipated at the age of 16. She can get on medicaid and foodstamps for one and for two she is old enough to get a job. Maybe, you can help her do that and make sure she stays in school so she definately has a bright future. There is no way a 14 year old is going to be emancipated...

Q: 

License suspended...?

A:  it doesn''t matter if he has a license they can suspend it without him being of age it is a deterrent to what he did when he was 14 Unfortunately this is legal in many states, I have a friend who got his license suspended in a state he had never even lived in because he was given a DUI there. Six years later he had to pay the fines so he could get a Commercial license. You don''t have to have the license you just have to be old enough to have a permit or license. Unfortunately that sort of thing is common now. Some idiot District Attorney got that passed, so he or she could claim to be ''tough on crime'' when running for higher office. And the state and counties love it because it''s more revenue for them. I''m a resident of AL but I no...

Q: 

Breech of Contract/or Deceptive Act & Practices

A:  There are hundreds, if not thousands, of insurance plans. Providers cannot know the terms of all of them. You, on the other hand, have only one plan to deal with. You are responsible for knowing what your plan does and doesn't cover (and, by the way, it is NOT true "that most [dental] ins. will not cover clients over 19years of age"). Every medical/dental contract clearly says that the patient is responsible for payment regardless of what insurance covers. That said, I'm surprised your dentist wouldn't let you out of the contract once it was discovered. If you signed a contract, the dentist is entitled to recover whatever profits he would have made (i.e., the contract price less costs). A dental insurance policy is a contract. This...

Q: 

Trademark now or when startup launched

A:  First of all, you don''t "trademark" something by registering it with the Federal Trademark Office.  You "trademark" something by using that something as a trademark.   Second, in order to qualify for registration, you''ll need to use the mark in connection with the goods or services in question.  Merely "submitting your startup to a technology conference" is in all likelihood not enough. Finally, even if you register your mark, that won''t trump the rights of those who used it first for their own goods or services, although it often limits such "senior party''s" rights in other ways. - Jeff Thank you for your reply. In regards to the conference ( TechCrunch 20) they began taking submissions end of April and I submitted my startup at...
