Q: 

Can I file a law suit against my school??

A:  The thing is - how will you be able to prove your point? I mean - has anyone told you outright " you is not white - you not getting the role" (or something to that effect) and do you have witnesses of this? Otherwise, this will be a he said - she said thing - and the school will claim that they got the best person for the roles - and that you didn`t have this/that/theother that the chosen person did have. While it hurts getting rejected - i would advise you to forget about this. You have said you are going to a new school, why not get a fresh start there. Don`t dwell on the stupidity of others, but take ''revenge'' by succeeding in life. That really is the best way to show off that you are NOT a loser - but better than them - in many ways. Going to court over this - i think it...

Q: 

attorney won''t enter his appearance

A:  Has the PD withdrawn as counsel yet? The new attorney likely cannot enter an appearance as his lawyer while there is still another attorney on record as representing him. and we do bail/bond hearings all the time. Your family member needs to let his attorney know that private counsel has been hired.  In my neck of the woods the private attorney sends us a stipulation for substitution.  We cannot withdraw because the court appointed us and we cannot get out of that appointment without court approval, substitution of counsel, or termination by the client. trmaster16: There are "list"  pds;  the pds office works on the case but...

Q: 

Re: Grand Parent Visitation

A:  If the child is currently being abused you need to call CPS. If your daughter drives without a license or registration, the next time she takes off in her car, call the police. If you want to evict her then do so - it has nothing to do with a visitation matter. You didn't post a state--and state laws can vary a lot. But in general if you have an invited guest in your home you are free to cancel the invitation at the drop of a hat and compel them to leave as fast as they can get their feet to the door. You are unwise to use the word "rent" it may create serious problems out of context. If however you 'rent" some section of your home to her, and such is lawful to do in your area, and she...

Q: 

mothers custody rights in CA

A:  The first step you take is getting a court date to file for custody. The father will then be ordered to pay support and given visitation. He can also file for custody and it will be up to the judge to decide what is best for the child. In California, the mother automatically receive the custody by giving birth to the baby. If the father hasn''t established the paternity, he has no rights. At the same token, he does not have obligations for child supports. Not enough info given, is father on the birth certificate ? is there a custody agreement in place ? If he is on the birth certificate he has as much right to take the child anywhere as you do. If not on the birth certificate, and no

Q: 

I need help, a payday loan co. used my check to pay NSF for their sister company, can they even do this?

A:  First off, only an attorney licensed is your state can say for sure if what they did to you was illegal, but I would say that this sort of behavior probably comes close to crossing some sort of line. Even if it was legal (which it may or may not of been), their action was certainly highly unethical. The American Bar Association (ABA) has a terrific Web site that can connect you to a free attorney-referral service in your area, including those that specialize in helping people with limited financial resources. Visit abanet.org and simply select the state in which you live to find the legal service providers in your home state.

Q: 

What would be the drawback to getting married to someone that is planning to file bankruptcy?

A:  While your future spouseÂ’s bankruptcy filing will definitely have a negative impact on his credit rating, it should have no effect on you, either from a credit or from a legal standpoint. Neither his delinquent debt nor his bankruptcy filing would show up on your credit report. Credit reporting agencies search through public records to find bankruptcy filings, which they then place on the consumerÂ’s credit file; since your name will not be included as a petitioner on your future spouseÂ’s bankruptcy, the case will not appear on your credit reports. In addition, you have no legal liability for his debts, since the accounts are in your fiancé’s name only,...

Q: 

I have a student loan in collections,but they don''t want to settle because of the state I live in. Can I settle the debt?

A:  Generally speaking, most student loan companies will not settle student loan debt. However, that does not mean you should not try. I do not know for certain whether it is a matter of the state you live in that is affect the collectors willingness to settle. What typically happens if a borrower defaults on a student loan, the university, the student loan lender, the state, and the federal government may take legal action to recover the money, including garnishing your wages and withholding income tax refunds. If you do not make repayments on the loan, the creditor/collection agency does have the right to take you to court. If a judgment is won, the creditor/collection agency can ask to have wages garnished and/or liens placed against properties or financial accounts. The only thing that...

Q: 

how do I seek custody when I''m in a different state?

A:  You are going to have to file for custody modifcation in CA because that is where the ex and your child live. That state retains jurisdiction. Consult counsel in the relevent CA county that has jurisdiction. Use the Find A lawyer feature to the right. You probably will need to come to CA for any required court appearances. But much of what needs to occur before hand can probably occur by phone, email or mail. My current spouse did successfully use an attorney in MD for a child support issue, even though we live in CA....

Q: 

How do I get information on my father's trust and will?

A:  Hire a probate attorney to file for a change of executor. Can you recommend an attorney? I live in San Francisco, and the estate is located near Sacramento. Can I hire an attorney in San Francisco to do this? Or do I have to hire one in the Sacto area? I was previously referred to an attorney in Palo Alto...but I thought he would be too far away from me and from the estate in question. What do you think? I could still call him back. It doesn''t really matter where the attorney is located as long as it''s in California. But finding one close to the action with which you are comfortable would be my first choice. Also, there is a link at the top of this page to contact...

Q: 

How to make my immigrant sister a us citizen?

A:  If she is here illegally,there is nothing you can do. She has to return to her home country to start the process. Her chances are better if her husband applies for her. She will still have to leave the country to complete the process with a 10 year ban on returning. Her husband would then have to file a waiver to have her return. She may or may not be approved. Either way,her husband is her best chance of ever getting legal status. How did your sister get to the US? Visa or "uninspected" (snuck across the border)? What visa did she use? Does she have a green card? Please give us some information so we can help. Without knowing her situation no one can help you! Stay in your own country See naturalization info at uscis.gov. I have a feeling it''s not her citizenship that''s...
