Q: 

Need help with ICPC in OH--Q

A:  The mom has no say on who she terminates rights too, she is unfit anyways. Who has had the child now? If the child has been with the foster parents then they have bonded with the child and it is not unusual to allow them to adopt if DHHS allows it. You are really lucky to eve get any visitation witht the child and you are out of state. I am not sure why the child should be uprooted from the foster parents who have been caring for the child since birth and given to you. The child sees the foster parents as his parents and it would be detrimental for the child and the foster parents to hand this baby over to you. Where are you? WV or OH? It is really unusual a case will be transferred from one state to another....

Q: 

personal property transfer (intestate) - Idaho

A:  Shipping or transporting firearms from one state to another can be complicated by the differences in state and federal laws and might be even further complicated by city codes.

What is your relationship to the deceased? What kind of firearm? Who has it now? And where? Do you live in Ohio or Idaho? Who is the person to whom you want to "transfer" the firearm? And where does this person live? Any personal property owned by the deceased and distributed to an heir is, by definition, an...

Q: 

Sale of home and tax

A:  They may have treated it an investment property absent any input to the conrtary. Generally a sale of a home incident to a divorce is not taxable, and for the last several years if this was your prior home for at least 2 out of 5 years at time of sale it probably wasn't taxable at state level either if your gain was $250,000 or less. Its quite likely you do not owe taxes. You might owe a penality for failure to file--but this is sometemes abated if you have a reasonable excuse. But before you write a lot of wrong things it may be wiser to sort out a pro familar with how to file in that state so its a nice clean response. It depends on the tax laws of the state where the house was...

Q: 

I''m in the middle of a foreclosure, but have good credit and income with no other debt. How do I qualify for a new mortgage?

A:  Thank you for your question about qualifying for a mortgage with certain challenges to your credit. You raise at least three issues in your message. I will address each below separately: Qualifying for a Mortgage A mortgage lender wants four qualities from a potential customer: Steady income, a relatively clean recent credit history, a debt-to-income ratio of 35% or less, and a down payment.

Q: 

Sex Offender Registry laws In Colorado

A:  I quit reading early on because: 1 - Way to long. 2 - You appear to have missed the English class that covered the concept of paragraphs. 3 - Seemed more like a rant then a question about legal issues.   Here's the bottom line. The registration laws are meant to help keep track of sex offenders. The reason for these laws is that, for at least certain classes of sex offenders, the data shows they have a very high rate of reoffending. As a result, the community wants to keep tabs on them to help ensure that doesn't happen. Sex crimes in this country are considered, in general, to be particularly loathsome, so these laws have wide public support. No one wants a convicted sex...

Q: 

Can I still collect child support if the child has my maiden name and not his fathers?

A:  Modification of divorce decrees generally refers to a change in the order that was issued declaring the couple officially divorced. The divorce decree will often contain orders related to child custody and visitation, as well as division of assets, support payments, and other issues. Courts consider custody and child support issues as subject to change until the child involved reaches the age of majority. Proceedings to modify a divorce decree are commenced by filing a petition to modify in the original divorce action decree. Local court rules and state rules of civil procedure, which vary, govern petitions to modify. Typically, to modify child custody or visitation, the parent seeking a modification must show a ''significant change of circumstances'' that would...

Q: 

Florida Court not relinquishing jurisdiction, what can I do?

A:  u need an international lawyer- NOW! I don''t think anyone on here is going to have enough knowledge of this kind of thing to help you and it sounds like you are in trouble. If they served you papers and you signed for them and they were dated after the court date- I don''t know how they could get you for that. I have lived in Canada since, with the exception of a 7 month stay back in Escambia County while my husband was training with a company for which he is still working.
