Q: 

Question on getting custody of a niece?

A:  No. They do not become her ''legal parents'' simply because the parents die. They would need to go to court an file a third party guardianship petition - even if the parents'' will stated that they wanted these characters to have custody of their daughter. (The will would not be enough - they need judicial recognition.) If they wanted to be the legal parents, they would need to go through the adoption process. In situations like this, (unless the family is fairly affluent) it would be uncommon for them to adopt the child. (The child would probably be collecting social security survivor benefits and would be eligible for other assistance based on the death of her parents. If she is adopted, she is no longer eligible for that assistance.) The

Q: 

How does one determine how much life insurance to purchase?

A:  It has always been advised to purchase term life insurance. How much is based on how well you want to provide for your family. For example what is the projected cost of living increase, current debts ie. how many years are left on a home mortgage payment, do you have young kids with the projection of going to college, increase in college tuition, is your spouse working and what is the probability to job security for him/her etc just to name a few Yes, a good life insurance agent can help you do that. When my husband purchased our life insurance it determined all the debt we have. This way who ever is left behind will not have to deal with it. To determine how much life insurance you NEED, you should look at what you need life insurance for. If you are buying life insurance to provide...

Q: 

How does one avoid trouble from Sexting and exactly what is it?

A:  In most cases, adult to adult is legal. Of course, if you send nude photos of yourself to someone who doesn''t want them, that''s a whole different deal! Any photo of a minor nude is considered child pornography, and you can go to prison for possessing it. The safest course of action is to just delete it as soon as you get it. Sexting = sending nude photos talking about sex and just stuff like that. and to avoid it just dont talk to people who do that. adults to adults idk if thats illegal....

Q: 

How does One Save for College Education and Retirement?

A:  This is a really good question. Life is all about making tough choices according to your priorities. You say your ability to save is limited and you need to evaluate the situation. First, consider your retirement. If you are still alive when you are beyond your ability to continue working, then you have two choices. Choice one is to live off of what someone else is willing to give you, including social security if it still exists by then. Choice two is to live off of the savings you set aside for your retirement. This is all about what kind of life you will have when you can''t work anymore to alter that outcome. I would rank that as a very high priority. If you don''t deal with this now, you CAN''T deal with it then. College for your children can be paid by you, by your child, by...

Q: 

Credit cards? how does it work? is this a good idea?

A:  You should pursue a true secured credit card that does not pull your credit report and does report to all the national credit bureaus. Then maintain when you can a balance of $1 to 10% of the credit limit. When you get your statement pay the small balance and charge another $1 to 10%. Doing this will further maximize your credit score potential. After six months you will have a credit score and things should continue to improve over time. (You only have to play this game for max value a month or two prior to a credit application to ensure posted on your credit report.) see Correctmycreditreport.com bottom right corner ad for Public Savings Secured Card PUBLIC SAVINGS SECURED CARD Not having a balance on any credit cards will cause...

Q: 

If you''re in the army can you pull the "only son" card to get out of a tour of duty?

A:  That is not true and there is no way he can''t get out of the deployment or come home unless someone in his family dies or he is proven unfit to be in theater due to planning on harming himself or others. He isn''t married so he won''t be able to use his girlfriend as an excuse. So he will have to get kicked out for doing something stupid and keep doing stupid things and he really don''t won''t to do that because it will hurt his chances of getting a real job when he does get discharged. His plan is a act of selfishness and act of a coward and because of that no one will have sympathy for him and make his military life a living hell. The best thing for him to do is to continue his tour quit crying and get over it he knew when he joined it was a time of war and he...

Q: 

How do become the captain of a coast guard vessel?

A:  Step one is obviously to join the Coast Guard. Within the Coast Guard, ''captain'' means several things. First, it''s a rank of a fairly senior officer (O-6, like a Colonel in the Army), who may or may not be the captain of a vessel. Next, it can mean any officer that is the Commanding Officer of a vessel, regardless of rank. Commanding Officer opportunites start at O-2, a fairly junior officer rank that can be attained after 18 months of service. To be an officer, you generally need to hold a bachelor''s degree, graduate from OCS or USCGA, or come up through the enlisted ranks. While we don''t call them ''captain'', enlisted members can be in charge of Coast Guard cutters as well. The term here is ''Officer in Charge'' or OIC. Opportunities for that start at about E-7, and are more common...

Estimated quarterly taxes is just that an ESTIMATE. If you overpaid you will get a refund. If you underpay you can be charge penalties and interest.

Q: 

I havent talked to my uncle in 5 years and hes in the FBI. how do i get ahold of FBI agents?

A:  You could go to the nearest FBI office and request to speak to an agent. Any FBI agent should be able to contact him for you and give him your contact information, and your uncle could decide to contact you (or not). You would probably need to be able to prove you are related to the agent (photos, documents, etc.). But, just because they could does not mean that they will. There is an obligation to protect the identity of agents against unnecessary disclosure, and no obligation to act as a go-between. If you email me the specifics, and can convince me that you are related as you say, I may be able to send him an email through an official channel. But I will not do it unless I am convinced. Call your local FBI office and see if someone there can help. good luck with...

Q: 

How does the Automatic transmission on a Lamborghini work?

A:  Lamborghini''s transmissions are not automatics. They are manual transmissions that are robitically shifted by computers and a series of hydraulically actuated servos. The owner can select a program that will do the shifting for him if he desires it. These transmission have a clutch also - just no clutch pedal. Clutch actuation is also computer controlled. What you get for your extra $6000.00 is a standard 6-speed transmission whose shift points can be measures in milliseconds instead of hundredths of a second. They have paddle shifters. The three buttons you see are, I believe, drive, revers and N (I can''t spell it!). Here are some pictures that you can look at. The first picture under the wheel on the left you can kind of see the paddle shifters. You can also see them on this car too. ...
