Q: 

How much money can you win a case for breach of contract?

A:  Unless the law says 3X damages, I doubt it. You may be able to sue for the value of the contract or the extend of the damages you suffered due to its failure to get done. Winning the suit doesn't mean you actually collect a dime...thats a whole extra kettle of fish. "Realistically, how much can i get?" We can't possible guess from here; my crystal ball is brokean. "Can i sue for 3x the amount the individual owes me?" Can you? Sure. But you don't say on what basis this person would owe you 3x the money. And good luck navigating regular superior court on your own (your loan amount is higher than small claims limit). Seek local counsel. I agree with the others. You need an attorney to review the contract and assess the case. I...

Q: 

how to get a job with a felony on my record

A:  You can get a lot of different types of jobs with a felony conviction on your record. If there are any prohibitions, it would be contingent upon what the conviction was concerning. Also, it would help us here to know if you are on probation or parole in order to give you the best answers. There may be special conditions applicable if you are still on probation or parole. First, you put together a resume and a cover letter template that you can tailor to the kind of job it is that you are going for. Second, you look in the paper and on the Internet and go to job fairs to look for available jobs around where you would like to work. Third, you see what the requirements for a particular position are as far as what to submit, and then submit things according to the...

Q: 

H1B extension; petition approved; how to get the visa?

A:  On Fri, 10 Oct 2003 09:06:55 -0700, KK41 wrote: I feel a little silly asking: My H1B extension (years 4-6) just got approved (I-797A). How do I get the (new) visa in my passport? Please visit my FAQ page for this and other questions. Basically, you don''t necessarily need to get the new visa, unless you plan to travel internationally. If you decide that you do need the visa anyway, there are several ways of getting that. Do I have to leave the U.S., go to a consulate, and wait until they put a new visa in my passport? I remember that this took two weeks back in early 2001 ... and I don''t have that much vacation ... or do I have to go to Canada? Canada used to be a...

Q: 

Getting out of a shady contract. How?

A:  It is not clear from your post whether you signed a contract re: the purchase of this business or whether the deal actually closed. You're supposed to worry about skeletons as part of the due diligence process. "How do I get out of this?" Your 5-sentence post is insufficient for someone to give a meaningful response. You need to talk with a local corporate attorney (or general civil attorney who is experienced with business purchases-sales) -- and should have done before you entered into the contract. "How do I get out of this?" By paying a great deal of money to an attorney and probably paying a great deal of money to the seller. What research did you do before you entered into the contract? Did you ask about any of those things? What makes you...

Q: 

Do I need a work visa to run a UK business from Canada?

A:  doesn''t any one know? "John B" <spamfree...hotmail.con> wrote in message news:0badnQngKeepaGrcRVn-gg...mycybernet.net... I have a successful business in the UK which I can operate from abroad over the Internet etc. If I come to Canada for a year with my (Canadian) wife, do I need to get a work permit? I pay income tax etc. in the UK, so would I be right in thinking that if I am not earning anything in Canada, I do not need a work visa? If not, can I get a visitor''s permit for longer than 6 months, given my circumstances? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks John...

Q: 

We never live together. Now I want to get a divorce

A:  "But he never mentioned about the index number was valid only for 120 days." I don't know what this means. I assume it relates to some unique, local, procedural issue. "Are there any way I can extend the index number?" You mentioned that you have a lawyer. I suggest you talk to him about this. Are you sure it requires waiting another year? I thought the year was required before you could file? In any event your attorney is the right person to ask. And if she refuses to respond there is undoubtedly an action you can take to proceed in her absence. I heard that if you are married for 10 years, you are obligated to pay permanent alimony. What you heard is not true. I was married for 17 years and was only awarded alimony for 7 years....

Q: 

Avoiding Probate on a JT WROS when there are children

A:  "How can I do that without my siblings having to pay taxes?" Who on earth told you that they'd have to pay taxes?? You're free to split it four ways if you like. Heck, you're free to *keep* it all if you like and not give them a dime. 'Course that would be morally wrong if, say, you were only on the account for convenience purposes (though mom could have designated you an authorized signer without adding your name as owner). If we're talking more than $12k per person and you plan to hand it over in lump sums (again, you don't have to), then you'll have to file a gift tax return and claim against your $1 million lifetime gift exemption). Seek local counsel if necessary as to the estate in general (stuff other than this account). "However,...

Q: 

Is there a trucker, friend of a trucker, or trucker fetishist who can answer the following on 18-Wheelers?

A:  Boy, what a bargain, 5 points, 6 questions. *grin* What''s the difference between a ''flat-faced'' semi and the more common ''long-nosed'' tractor? Why is the later more common? Engine placement and design of the manufacturer. What exactly is the purpose of a weigh station? Is it for road weight-bearing capabilities? What are the off-white boxes over the lanes next to weigh stations? Is that some kind of weigh-in-motion system? Why are there usually multiple cop cars at weigh stations? Is it really that big of a deal? To make sure the truck is not overloaded. Some are cameras and some are like a blue tooth link for those trucks that have built in weight sensors. If they do have them, and aren''t overloaded, a green dash light allows them to bypass the station. The cars are there to stop...

Q: 

Can a company take an ad I create, change it a little and say it's thier idea?

A:  quote:Originally posted by Jasonb007:I have been creating advertisements for fake companies. For example I did a creative ad for a lemonade company. I want to show my idea to a real company but am afraid they will just take my idea and change it a little, or claim that it was just an idea, therefore not copyrightable. How can I present advertising ideas to companies without them stealing all of my ideas? -Any help or reference material would be appreciated! -Jason Check with the US copyright office for info and talk to some ad agencies and inquire of them as to how they do it.
