Q: 

What are some of the challenges to prepare for when going from zero children to three children at once?

A:  Well first I would say your life is not your own anymore! And you have a lot of responsibilites! Children our a wounderouse joy! And god has blessed you emecely!

Q: 

Question about a termination/UI issue

A:  When were you terminated and how long were you on leave before they terminated you? Given you were injured on the job--did you file for disability?  I would not rule out that you were exited so as to not have you file! Addressing your issues one at a time: The inappropriate comment:  the employer's only obligation is to make that activity stop.  If it did then they met the requirements of the law. The transfer:  the company is not legally obligated to transfer you to another location for family reasons.  If you wanted the transfer then it is up to you to do the leg work and follow up.  If you are on medical leave then they definitely aren't going to be looking for work for someone who isn't able to. The...

Q: 

What can I do?

A:  No- but you do have the right to file for custody. You left out many issues which would be relevant ( how often does he come back to where  your daughter is living, are his plans short term or long term, how far away is he from your daughter);  he moved out of state-( and whether he has moved or not is an issue)- not your daughter- a petition is required when the parent is moving with the child out of state.  But you do need to consult with local counsel for the appropriate filing in your case. Laymans take:    The issues of relocation are complex and quirky. MI has some specific rules which apparently EX has yet to address.  And some of the rules may be contradictory or unclear as the smoke has not yet...

Q: 

Is there anything I can sue for?

A:  Though you are referring to a third party's divorce, I'm not sure what this is doing on the divorce board. "I am just not sure someone can legally do this?" She can, and has done it. Question is what, if anything, you can do about it, and whether you want to waste money on the endeavor. Talk with a local attorney. "she filed for divorce and accused us of having an adulterous affair and named me the correspondant." The "correspondant"? I don't know what that means (in part because you didn't identify your state as requested in the posting instructions). "her cousin used to come over to my house and use my computer." ?? "I am just not sure someone can legally do this?" There are mechanisms set up...

A:  Hi Dave. "Dave" <ffaanta...wmconnect.com> wrote in message news:a72a58e2.0408050657.2cf7be95...posting.google.c om... Greetings, I landed here in May 2004 and plan to marry my girlfriend who is on a student visa. I should be getting a job by the end of next month so my question is, if we get married can I still sponsor her before I get a job. If not, how long do I have to wait before I can sponsor her. Also, is there a minimum one has to earn to sponsor a spouse? Appreciate any input. Thanks. 1. Yes, but you would have demonstrate that you are not on public assistance and will be able to support your spouse. 2. Yes, you can sponsor before you get a job. 3. No minimum for spousal sponsorship.

Q: 

Expunging a felony off my record.....Worried, scared and mad

A:  You write that it's "open" on your record. Does that mean you never had a trial, pled guilty, got convicted, or don't you even know what happened? If you have only an arrest but no conviction it might be possible to pay back the money and have the charges dismissed. But I suggest you get a lawyer to handle this for you so you don't end up paying back the money AND having a conviction. No offense, but you do appear a bit clueless about the whole thing.   Here's the problem - you admit you did what you have been accused of. The state doesn't expunge things just because you ask them to. It's pretty hard to believe that you continued to accept benefits and cash them without ever thinking that might not be the right thing to...

Q: 

Need a credit card but I have a low credit score!!!?

A:  You can call toll free with an affilliate of mine that has financial services and advice. Talk in person and private and explain your situation. These are professionals.

Google Capital One secured credit card and you will see the information for his to apply. The best option would be to contact a local bank and apply for a secured credit card. DO NOT CHARGE UP THE CARD... Charge gas or food, something small. Wait for the bill to come, pay it off. Wait till the following month, repull your credit... This should increase your score. Remember, To qualify for a home loan, most lenders require a 620 FICO score and no...

Q: 

My Ex is pregnent with my unborn baby and she wants to give it to her brother when it is born for adoption?

A:  Go to court and and fight for your child--you have rights. If you don''t appear at court your right will be terminated and you are ''out''. You will probably need an attorney . you can contact an attorney and file for custody of the unborn baby. Let the judge know that you are the father and that she wants to give it up for adoption. A mother can not adopt a baby out if she knows who the father is with out his permission. She can''t do that without your consent once the baby is born there are social workers that can help get into a custody battle and file a report on it she cant put the child up for adoption without the father''s consent, and if she names you on the certificate you''ll be ok...

Q: 

My fiance is considering filing bankruptcy how will this affect me?

A:  Unmarried couples do not affect each other whatsoever in bankruptcy terms. Even if joint accounts are held, distinctions must be noted to the bankruptcy court to document the distribution of a joint account. In these cases, any debt cancellation will apply only to the individual filing for bankruptcy, leaving liability for the remainder with the other joint account member. However, for married couples bankruptcy is more complex when only one spouse is choosing to file for bankruptcy. Each part of the couple’s financial circumstances must be evaluated through each spouse. In some cases there are major advantages to this, because one spouse may earn too high of a monthly income to pass the means test for Chapter 7 bankruptcy, or when filing...

Q: 

Do I need to remove my daughter from my mortgage before I close on a reverse mortgage?

A:  The short answer to your questions is you may be able to remove a name from a conventional mortgage when closing on a reverse mortgage. The precise answer depends on the circumstances, and the policies of the reverse mortgage servicer (the bank). A sure-fire way to remove a name from a mortgage is to refinance the mortgage, during which one party (or more theoretically) is removed from the mortgage. This assumes that the remaining people on the loan qualify for the refinance. A refinance should not take longer than 90 days. (See Time to Complete a Refinance for details.) Here, think of refinancing as your Plan B. Plan A is to start shopping for a reverse mortgage. Explain the mortgage situation at the outset of your negotiations. If the loan officer you speak to balks or tells you...
