Q: 

If i wanted to be a cop in the civian world, would i have to be a mp in the military?

A:  No, and it does NOT help you in your search for a job with civilian Police Departments to be an MP. I recently was trying to get out and find a job in law Enforcement and found that my 5 years working as a Marine MP was no more of an advantage than to be in Admin or a helicopter mechanic in the military. Military experience will help you but the field does not matter because the civilian PD''s and MP work are different. So military will help you get a LE job, but do whatever you want because no specific job is more beneficial. in order to be a civilian cop you need to pass the police Academy. so being an MP would not help you any more than any other military job. i know some police departments don''t like MP''s because they feel like they have to re-train them how...

Don''t get a divorce! It''s not worth it. The pain is more trouble than it''s worth. When you got married you did it for better or worse. The situation you in is the worse, but it will get...

Q: 

During a severe wind storm my tree fell on the neighbors property do i have to pay for any damages?

A:  This isn''t the same case as you mentioned but it is as close as I could get. You can search the site for more information. I put the site below. It is from Judge Joe Brown''s TV show. My neighbor''s tree looks like it''s going to fall on my house any day now. What should I do? You can trim back branches to your property line, but that may not solve the problem if you''re worried about the whole tree coming down......Some cities have ordinances that prohibit maintaining any dangerous condition -- including a hazardous tree -- on private property. To enforce such an ordinance, the city can demand that the owner remove the tree or pay a fine. Some cities will even remove such a tree for the owner. ......The legal theory is that the dangerous tree is a "nuisance" because it is...

Q: 

How much can you make before you have to file taxes?

A:  I called H&R Block and also went to Jackson Hewitt and both told me that If you made under $3,000 you were under no obligation to file. This was for a single person. If you are married and the spouse claims you then yes they also have to take that into account for your earnings also. You can file your taxes online for free so I have heard but I KNOW you can go to www.taxact.com. You can just go through the process and see how much you would be able to recieve or you can go ahead and e-file through them and it only cost like $8 per state/federal tax form you send in. Hope this helps....

Q: 

I filed married under common law on our taxes. My spouse has since left are we still legally married? Do we have to file for divorce before we can legally marry someone else?

A:  When and where did this so-called common law marriage occur? PA did recognize common law marriages that were contracted prior to 2005, but no longer, as the reasons for common law marriage largely do not exist. You have to do more than claim a spouse on taxes or live together - this is not the test. Assuming it was prior to 2005, you have to show a holding out yourself as a married person and words to show marriage. What I suggest is that you contact a family law attorney. Specifically ask him or her about the common law marriage and the particulars of that relatioship. If you have a valid common law marriage, then...

Q: 

I am in the process of filing for divorce from my husband and have a 13 year old daughter. My husband has not worked for six months and our home is going into foreclosure. What can I do to get my husband physically out of the house? Do I have to file for divorce first and can this be done prior to filing? Thanks for your assistance.

A:  You cannot force him out any more than he can force you out. You will have to file and likely go to court and have the judge order something like this, which will likely take some time. In a divorce situation, judge''s don''t normally throw one spouse out on the streets without giving them some time to find another place to live....

Q: 

I recently married a man who changed just shortly after getting married to me and started being verbally and physically abusive. He is now in jail for domestic violence against me and I was wondering if I could file for an Annulment or do i have to file for divorce?

Q: 

Do I have to hire a lawyer in the state where I left (where the problem occurred) or can I hire a lawyer in the state I currently live in?

A:  I''m Gloria Rowland Homolak, an attorney in Cleveland, Ohio. I will be addressing your employment law questions. Which attorney do you hire, the one in the state where the problem occurred or the one where you currently live? My first question is whether or not the lawyer where you live is well-versed in the law in the state where the problem arose? Does the local lawyer handle many of these types of cases? Does the local lawyer handle cases in the out of state jurisdiction? Although the local lawyer may be able to advise you generally, if the case is complex and involves ongoing litigation in the state of occurrence, you also need to know if...
