Q: 

How long on tourist Visa ?

A:  Hi As per other thread we have at last sold our house and are looking at moving to New Jersey on an E2 visa As the cost of living is less it would make sense to move to the US whilst sorting out the E2 etc. How much hassle do you get in customs if you declare this is what you are doing, how long can you go out for and do ALL the family have to leave the county to get the E2 visa or will one person flying back to the issuing embassy do ? Thanks Heswallboy You might want to try Ray''s site: http://www.xsorbit1.com/users/floridadays/index.cgi Lots more info on E2 You can be entered for up to 90 days on a VWP.

Q: 

Furniture Store Claims Bankruptcy, Am I Stuck With Defective Loveseat Indefinitely?

Q: 

Life insurance question in Alabama--Q

A:  Hopefully someone with insurance experience will answer you. Though, I personally don''t understand why the contestable period would even come into play if your brother died due to an accident and NOT illness. Don''t think for a moment that they are offering the $6,500 out of the "kindness of their heart"! If they legally were not responsible for payment, they would offer you NOTHING. They are simply trying to get you to accept less than what you are due. Get a copy of the policy, read and understand it thoroughly. Inform the insurance agency that should they not comply with the terms of the policy, they shall be hearing from your attorney. You could do battle and maybe obtain, $10,000; you''ll never get more. Or, you could "settle" and get $6,500, without doing...

Q: 

ime medical report... Please look scott..thanks!!

A:  If your AWW is $600, and you are receiving $400 as a temporary total rate, a moderate to marked disability would usually result in a rate reduction to $250-$266 range (62.5% - 66.6%). However, if your doctor continues you at temporary total, the usual practice would be to split the difference at a 87.5% rate of $340. However, if your AWW is higher, say $960, then a reduction to a 62.5% rate would not reduce your payments ($960 x 2/3 x .625 = $400) http://www.wcb.state.ny.us/content/main/TheBoard/glossary.htm If you have a C-8 from the carrier, it will list your AWW on one of the lines near the top of the form. If you review your WCB decisions, you will find that the AWW (average weekly wage) was established at one of the early hearings. If your AWW is established at $725.00...

Q: 

forced back to work w/no release

A:  How were you 'forced' back to work? Normally a return to work would not require a release. There is no law that says you cannot be required back to work on less than a full medical release. How long had you been out, in total? 28 days plus 64 days is 92 days - WELL beyond the 12 weeks (roughly 60 days) required under the FMLA. I read the whole thing. I suggest YOU read the FMLA. "Disability" leave is generally NOT separate from FMLA. What Lynn is telling you is correct. That regardless of what the doctor extends it to, that the maximum amount of time under the FMLA law that your job has to be held is 12 weeks. Then your job can tell you that you must report back to work or lose...

Q: 

Green card legal rights

A:  I see no benefit to your waiting to become a citizen before divorcing the guy. You need to interview several local divorce attorneys and then pick one. "he keeps telling me that I dont have any rights." EVERYONE has rights. "Should I first become a USA citizen before I serve him the papers." This is a request for legal advice, and no one here can do that. I suggest you seek out a divorce lawyer who has familiarity with immigration issues such that he/she can intelligently advice you regarding any immigration consequences of filing for divorce. HOWEVER, it seems highly unlikely that the divorce would have any effect on your immigration...

Q: 

How can I get a quick divorce and cheap if we have kids?

A:  If you split everything up together and create a plan it should be pretty cheap. What gets expensive is fighting over things (cars, kids). I got an online divorce and as long as you write out the terms of things mine was $400 (total - $250 for online kit and about $150 in fees). Kids may make things a little more expensive, but just do a little online research and talk to your wife about it. You may want to go for an online divorce since it is not only quick but also affordable. You can get things done in a jiffy for not more than $300. However, online divorces are best if both you and your spouse file for an uncontested divorce, in which both of you have settled to...

Q: 

divorce final? How does a person find out? (Wyoming)

A:  I wish to inform you that when a divorce is filed then a copy of the petition is served upon the Defendant. It is required by law to serve upon the Defendant a copy of the petition. Therefore if a divorce has been filed then a copy of petition will be served upon you. Alternatively you can go to court and check at court registry records about the information on divorce case. Court has the power to decide child custody along with divorce decree. As regards divorce decrees you can ask from court registry about the fact that whether divorce decree has been filed or not. AFF...

Q: 

How to get a mutual divorce

A:  If you have no idea how to start you probably need a lawyer. But you can start by calling the family law facilitator in your state and asking these questions. ONE of you has to have lived in the county for at least 6 mos. "My wife and I have agreed to get a mutual divorce." As opposed to? "How do we go about it?" A "friendly" divorce CAN BE a do-it-yourself project, but the prudent path is to hire a lawyer. If you were hoping someone will walk you through the process, that simply won't happen. "What all agreements should we be looking at?" A properly drafted marital settlement agreement that addresses all issues....
