Q: 

How much do you get paid to foster kids?

A:  Given that this question comes straight after ''How much do you get paid to look after dog?'' it does not appear that the pair of you care how you get money so long as you get it from somewhere. Government handouts for caring look easy. I suggest that there is no money for you in looking after dogs and that the government payments for the cost of maintaining foster children are just that. They are for the children - not for you two. It is very difficult to cover all the cost of caring for a teenager out of Social Security payment. If you are not prepared for the struggle involved in being a foster parent including the 24 hour commitment then I would suggest alternative money making options. Go and get a decent day job and stop trying to live off government payments...

Q: 

Why do Catholic priests seem to be child molesters so much?

A:  (1) The media prepetuates the shock value of it, for the quick buck. (2) Catholicism is the largest Christian denomination. It happens everywhere, but any religious position of trust is a pedophile''s heavenly safe haven. In other words, most people have it completely twisted. Priest don''t become child molesters. Child molesters become priests. Why the church puts so much trust in these kiddie666ers is beyond me. Despite the stories generated by the lawyers suing the Church that paint the priests as pedophiles, a priest is less likely to be a pedophile than any other clergy by a very wide margin. In fact priests are less likely to be a pedophile than any other group of adults. The most likely groups are school teachers and family members and more likely than not...

Q: 

After the home-study being done, how long does it take to be approved or denied?

A:  The time is usually very short. As long as all of your reference letters, applications, and clearances are completed and in, it will probably be in a matter of days. Maybe only a week or two. We got our final home study complete on a Friday and a placement on Monday! However, different places may be different. You can also ask your caseworker. They are happy to answer any of your questions. Hope this helps! Not long enough. Speaking as someone who was abandoned to adoption at 7mths old, I would like to give you a word of caution - not to put you off being willing to help a child who honestly and truly needs help, but to make you aware that adoption isn''t always the rainbow farting unicorns as depicted in the media. I honestly and truly...

Q: 

How long do you have to be at a job before you can get unemployment

A:  No. The injury was not work related and if it was, it would be Worker''s Compensation, not unemployment. Hello M: It has nothing to do with how long you''ve been employed. You could be laid off the first day and be eligible. However, you have to have worked during the past year to have built up an award. However, you quit..... 99% of the time, you won''t be eligible for unemployment if you quit. excon...

Q: 

What do cps do and how long do they take to solve an investigation?

A:  I don''t know what the other posters are thinking but presuming this is a UK based question CPS stands for Crown Prosecution Service, there isn''t something called the Child Protection Service in the UK. The CPS is the public prosecution service for England and Wales and are tasked by the police to prepare criminal prosecution cases. They make decisions over whether to prosecute suspects that the police have arrested and employ prosecution barristers to appear in court. Complex cases can take several months to be investigated while petty crimes where it is obvious who the offender is will take a few weeks. This is the UK page and to us CPS stands for Crown Prosecution Service. The CPS does not undertake investigations (that is the job of the police), but has responsibility for conducting...

Q: 

How long do you have to be married before stepparent adoption?

A:  I believe there is a 6 month waiting period before filing to adopt by a step parent. Call your states attorney and ask. Why does he need to adopt her? Isn''t it possible for him to love her and care for her without having to lie about who you slept with to conceive her? If it''s not possible for him to be able to love and care for her without having to lie to the world about the circumstances surrounding her birth, then he doesn''t sound like he''d be very good ''dad'' material anyway. as soon as you get married you can. most states say 1-2 years. but talk to a lawyer in your state to find out for sure. depends on the laws in your state call the court house...

Q: 

how long do i have after separation to get spousal support? Matter been in court husband refuse to sign agreement. Will be 3 years in september since separatio

A:  There is no statutory limitation period in Ontario under the Family law Act, and similarly, if support is being sought under the divorce Act, there is no limitation period in that Act either. HOWEVER, the length of time that has elapsed since separation IS one of many factors to be considered in the court''s determination of entitlement. The foregoing is general information only, NOT legal advice. For legal advice relating to your specific situation, please consult a family law lawyer. Judge Brownstone, then why do so many lawyers tell people there are limitations? I was just told some courts in Ont are forcing people into marriage counseling is that true?...

Q: 

For couples to adopt, how long do you have to be married?

A:  In Oregon, it''s one year. It''s not about requiring people to be married (single people in Oregon adopt all the time). It''s about giving the child a stable home. A single person who has been single and stable for awhile can provide a stable home. After a major life change (marriage, birth, death, etc.), a family can''t really provide a stable home. You need time to adjust before adding a new person to your family. There shouldn''t be a limit within the US. Single people adopt all the time. No idea on the US, but in the UK there''s no requirement for the aparent/s to be married. Heck, you can be single and still adopt in the UK. Hopefully your country is not so behind the times as to expect couples to be married. In the UK you dont have to be married but you are expected to be in a...
