Q: 

What is the likelihood of being able to reschedule a court date? and How?

A:  Yes, it is possible to reschedule a court date. First call the court''s customer service number and ask to reschedule explaining your situation. They may reschedule you over the phone or they may have you send in a letter or paperwork and ask you to reschedule in writting. It is possible. Just hurry and put your change request in as soon as possible before your court date.

Q: 

Just received a parking ticket how do I get out of it? (Seattle)?

A:  Just pay the ticket, geeesh! A parking ticket is the lowest form of a ticket, you cannot reduce it any further. How do you get out of it? Hire a lawyer. How do you pay it? Check the ticket, they normally have information on the ticket. Some departments have a prepay fine, that says if you pay the parking ticket on the day it is written it is a reduced fine. Also, you said, ''I just go another parking ticket.'' That means you have gotten them before. Figure out what you are doing wrong, and don''t do it again. It is better, and easier, to avoid getting a ticket then to figure out how to fight it....

Q: 

I missed a court date for speeding, is there any way to wipe this off my record?

A:  nope once you miss a court date you have a record it more than likely will not hold you back from jobs just don''t miss th next one Good chance you now have a Bench Warrant out for you. Time to take care of business before you''re picked up and sent to jail. The speeding ticket will only hurt your driving record. It wont hurt a lot.

A speeding ticket wont stop you from getting a job unless you are a driver and you have TONS of tickets. Just slow down and always buckle up!...

Q: 

Can a court date in Northern Ireland be re-scheduled if im on holiday on that date?

A:  Hi there as far as I''m aware you can''t re arrange a court date unless you have a serious reason like hospital treatment. You can however ask your solicitor to appear on your behalf, providing of course you are not expecting a custodial sentence. If you just don''t turn up a warrant may be issued for your arrest. However it would be unlikely, they''d prob just set a new date in your absence. I would doubt it. reschedule the holiday because court dates can''t be. and ... bad luck for you having to court for speeding :S doesn''t happen very often over here just for speeding. were you going really fast? did you leave...

Q: 

How difficult is the process of adopting a child from another country, and how does one go about doing this?

A:  This website has a great section on international adoption and getting started: http://international.adoption.com/ I believe each country has specific requirements in order to be able to adopt such as how long you have been married, if you have biological children of your own, if you are able to have children of your own (letter from doctor rendered as sterile), etc. I have a friend that recently completed an almost 3 year adoption process from Haiti and for those of you that want to say that she was trying to be ''trendy'', this child was the third one that she has adopted, the other two being from the states. She is also fostering two other children. If you have any questions I could get her contact info for you. I like that you''re interested in the whole adoption process or at least...

Q: 

How can one get his birth certificate if born in a military base-overseas?

A:  Hello Maloumg Your father had to register your birth overseas with the US State Department. You should not be getting the runaround at the State Department.
