Q: 

Closed adoption 1963/NYS refuses Original Birth Certificate

A:  Wow, I really feel for you. I was adopted as an infant and fortunately born in a state that has open records for adult adoptees. I got my original birth cert just by asking for it and producing proper ID. I am not a lawyer, but do have one suggestion. Can you get a court order to unseal the record? You might set up a consultation appointment with a local lawyer specializing in family practice. My best advice to you is to retain a family practice lawyer to petition a court to order a release of the records. You have my heartfelt sympathy, and I wish you success. What's to keep you from just legally changing your last name to your birth name? You can do that any time, without involving any adoption...

Q: 

The State Bar closed my bankruptcy attorney''s office. Where are my files? Where is my money? What can I do?

A:  Before I get to your answer, let me give you a little background information. When a client signs a fee agreement with an attorney, it is customary though not required in all cases for the client to pay the attorney some money in advance. The attorney is required by law to put that money in a special bank account, which is called a ''trust account.'' As the attorney works on a client''s case, he or she is allowed to withdraw an amount out of the trust account that corresponds to the amount of time spent times the attorney''s hourly rate. One of the easiest ways for an attorney to be disbarred is to not take...

Q: 

How do you file a claim against a trust?

A:  Basically speaking a minor is not responsible to pay his bills--execpt for necessities--and necessities tend to be narrowly constructed. Just who engaged you for services for said minor? Yes, though at least some medical care is considered a necessity. Whether this counseling would fall into that category depends on the applicable state law. The person administering a trust is the trustee. The boy''s conservator may also be the trustee of the trust, though that does not have to be the case. My guess is that this conservator/trustee person with whom you spoke is not a lawyer and in any event is certainly not representing your interests here. The trust does not have any direct obligation to you unless it is the party that contracted...

Q: 

My son was born outside US. His father is a US citizen, I''m not. Can my son''s father get him an SSN?

A:  Your son may or may not be entitled to US Citizenship. For persons born on or after November 14, 1986, a person is a U.S. citizen if all of the following are true: 1. One of the person''s parents was a U.S. citizen when the person in question was born; 2. The citizen parent lived at least 5 years in the United States before his or her child''s birth; 3. A minimum of 2 of these 5 years in the United States were after the citizen parent''s 14th birthday. If your son is a citizen, he can get a SSN. Your husband is required to file a US Tax return every year. If he is residing in the USA he would be able to qualify as a head of household and possibly (if his income is low enough) qualify for Earned Income credits based on that and his son as a dependent. In that case he could a few thousand...

Q: 

1. well how can someone find the note balance on a foreclosure to get an idea of what the bank is looking to r

A:  I work with investors and families local and across the country in regards to foreclosures and securing the winning bid for the purchase. >>>>NOTE: not all foreclosures are below market value. 1) You won''t know what the note balance is thru research a good agent and determine that close figures. 2) You will have an option period for 5 to 10 days determine if you want the house, a good agent can usually determine if there is foundation problems HOWEVER not always. It will cost you $300 approx. based on the size of the property for inspection, after the report is furnished it may state have a structual engineer to determine any problems. I would not recommend to purchase a house with foundation problems USUALLY GREAT buys however could be future problems 3) BANK LIABILITY...

Q: 

What happens when a 18 year old Canadian gets caught drinking in the usa?

A:  laws and most important fines in NYC are steep. Dont go there till 21 a couple grand at least especially if u are driving Maybe one of the US cops will pop in a reply. I''m up in Canadian land, but we deal with American teenagers all the time barhopping at the border cities and generally being hellraisers. Used to be not many years ago down in the US(gotta figure I''m getting old), if you were drinking underage you got your booze dumped on the side of the road and told to hoof it home with you and your buddies, or maybe they''d give you a lift in the back. Now I''m not too sure, things have changed. As for getting turfed out? Visitors to any foreign country can be booted out or removed for the violation of a countries laws. Would they?...

Q: 

What is a good credit card to get that you almost will never get turned down for?

A:  VISA or Mastercard are recognised worldwide, so even if you were to buy something from Asia or Europe, they would be recognised. a few months ago I went to a local check cashing place and, for $9.95, bought a pre-paid Visa. You can put as much money on it as you want and use it anywhere you want. I only use mine online because when used in a store, you incur a $1.50 finance charge for each use. HTH Look online for bad credit credit cards. Your credit may be perfect, but they will give anyone a card. The sure-fire way of NEVER being turned down for a major credit card would be to apply for secured credit card. Basically what type of card this is, is that you give them money up front (say you ask for a $500 limit), and everytime you use that card, the money will already be in your account...

Q: 

I heard you can go to college and do a service in the Army.?

A:  When you are in the Army you get $4,500 a year for college. You can start spending this as soon as you finish your initial training and get to your first duty station, although for the most part you''ll probably get no more than two classes a semester (three if you get a one credit elective). Once you finish your time in the Army you have the GI Bill you can use to continue your education. You''ll get about $50,000 for school with the original GI Bill and if you switch to the Post 9/11 GI Bill you get the highest state tuition paid for when you go to school and you also get a stipend for books and a housing allowance every month. If you go to a private college and the GI Bill doesn''t cover the full cost you will have to pay the difference, although there are programs to cover the...

Q: 

I''m a parent looking to get student loans for my child. Where can I find more information about student loans?

A:  There are two main categories of student loans: government student loans and private student loans. Generally, government loans (many are called Stafford Loans) will offer the best interest rates and terms. This is because the government loans are issued on a need basis up to the allowable maximum. Private Student Loans are issued based on credit thus carrying higher interest rates. Parents of students should look carefully at PLUS loans, which are also government student loans. Again, the interest rate is likely to be better than the rate you can secure from a private lender for student loans, since the government takes much of the risk of default, thereby subsidizing your low rates. There are several different loans types that a parent can look into obtaining for their child. Federal...
