Q: 

If your overeating is tied to a lack of intimacy and you''re currently unattached, how do you stop overeating?

A:  You look at yourself in the mirror. If you don''t like what you see and you feel uncomfortable in your own skin and want to take yourself back, you''ll do what you need to do. The first person you need to be intimate with, and good to, and honest with is yourself. Don''t try to improve yourself for the sake of others. Do it for yourself. When you begin to feel better about who you are, intimacy with another person will happen. Babehart is right...........you have learnt eating ''comforts'' you, possibly started in your childhood with parents who gave you sweets or food treats ''when you were good'' or if you fell over and hurt yourself, or to stop you crying and it continues throughout life.........unless you decide to take control and stop it and it does take some doing as it is an...

Q: 

This law office is trying to collect a debt from me...advice please?

A:  If you do not pay your credit rating will be affected. Since you are disabled and you can not have this payment garnished you do not need to pay it. However, my suggestion is to call your state consumer affairs office. They may be able to settle the matter. However, why not just return the computer. If you can''t do that then find out from the law office where they are located and pay them with a money order each month. They will then not be able to find out your bank account information and debit your account. However, if they do get that information and you did not give them authorization to take the money from your account then you can sue them and or report them to the state bar association where they are...

Q: 

My husband is a paralegal, and he knows how to prepare family law documents, Does he needs to have a licence?

A:  Be very, very careful. Your husband can be sued for the unauthorized practice of law if he is not completely careful with what he files or prepares. More and more states are cracking down on paralegals doing any kind of freelance work without the supervision of an attorney. Have you husband THOROUGHLY read and research the laws in your state regarding the unauthorized practice of law. I would not suggest he do such a thing unless he is 100% certain that he is not misleading clients. His best bet is to get in contact with a freelance paralegal in your area and discuss how to go about starting as a freelance paralegal. Filling out legal documents without the review of...

Q: 

Is subscribing to a website that shows a crime illegal?

A:  No.. If the crime is being aired as you are viewing it and you knowingly viewed these crimes where about to be aired, too which you paid an admittance fee then YES it''s illegal and you could face a felonies before and during the facts. Most people would have long called the police to such site, I for one would. No one is above the law and your aim was to watch the suffering of others like sexually gratification. Plus tv shows like police camera action would need to deal with lawyers and the courts before they could air criminals and most of them have their faces blurred out. So information is allowed out under the data protection act. But violent crimes such as murder & rape would never be shown out side a court of

Q: 

How long does a state trooper In Mississippi have to turn in a ticket before it is no good anymore?

A:  Depends on state law. Here in Indiana a police officer has up to 1 year from the time of the offense to issue a ticket. The ticket is not considered ''issued'' until the officer turns in his part of the ticket. The court system is pretty backed up.It can be 4 or five months before the ticket gets entered into the computers and you receive a court date or a letter for payment...

Q: 

How likely are you to be charged in a car accident that is fatal?

A:  I sincerely doubt in this case that a 74 year old woman ''ran in front of you'' while crossing the road. Drivers have the last clear chance to avoid an accident- why would you hit someone if it can be avoided? Some people are charged over others because of the circumstances surrounding the accident. The law isn''t black and white. just don''t stop and theres no problem When an accident happens, there will always be a portion that is driver error. Part of the reason why the driver was not charged might have been obstructed view. This always plays into an investigation and since the jury denied the family any compensation during the civil suit, chances are that there was overwhelming evidence showing that the older woman was at fault....

Q: 

How come there is a new trend that has come to Sue your older relatives out of all their money?

A:  You are exactly right. This is something that is not completely new, but I think the incidents of younger generations trying to screw older family members have increased over the years. As a CPA, I have dealt with the children of both elderly and deceased clients. It''s not uncommon for one sibling to try and screw the others out of their inheritence. I have seen families become destroyed because of fights over the assets of the parents & grandparents. It''s the saddest thing one could ever witness. My opinion is that the perceived increase in this behavior is a result of how lazy we are in relation to how hard our parents'' and grandparents'' generations worked. The WW2 generation worked much harder than the video game generation does today. You can even see this trend play out in...

Q: 

My fiance is on Probation, and cought a new charge that is getting dropped will he still be going to jail?

A:  The answer depends on if there is any other evidence of the assault. If you and he do not testify against each other, can the prosecutor make a case against you using other witnesses or materials recovered at the scene? Just because you don''t testify doesn''t necessarily mean there is no case. If they can still meet the burden of proof, there may still be a trial and you could both be found guilty and sentences accordingly. The decision to violate the probation will be down to the PO. If she thinks he is straying beyond the terms of the probation, she has to violate him and he will be going back to jail. It is not as easy as saying that if there is no charge, then she can''t violate him. I can only hope you are on good terms with the PO. Sorry. You aren''t taking it brightly, either....

Q: 

Is it cheating if he is on a porn site that allows u to chat with them while the are "showing"?

A:  I wouldn''t like it one bit if my spouse was camming with some naked girls. Edit: ROFLMAO@ controlled enthusiasm. Why take the trouble of posting on Y!A if you feel that way? With my DH the rule is if we wouldn''t do it in front of each other or tell each other about it then it''s cheating. That covers ''showing'', looking at porn, kiss etc. Talk to him, if your uncomfortable with it he shouldn''t do it, but make sure you are taking care of his needs as well. Another rule we have is that we dont say ''no'' to each other except for a couple of agreed upon reasons (sick, uncomfortable etc) Good luck Technically no.... him cheating isnt the issue here though...if you feel like he is neglecting you for porn, then there is something wrong that is just as hurtful as cheating and it should be...
