Q: 

How can my canadin husband live and work in the united states?

A:  if you''ve been living in Canada for the past 3 years, you can file an I-130 immigrant petition for your husband directly, which would cut down considerably on the processing time. I don''t know if they''ll accept the petition at any consulate in Canada, as immigrant visas are only done in Montreal, but you can always ask to find out. He''d have to be interviewed there though. check out usembassy.gov for the websites of the embassy and all of the consulates in Canada. since you''ve been married for over 2 years now, once he enters the US on an immigrant visa, he would be processed as a permanent legal resident immediately and would be able to live and work there indefinitely. since you''ve been living in Canada, you probably don''t have any US income to file a...

Q: 

How do we get a home to go to after leaving the military?

A:  Check with the Veterans'' Administration. There are programs to help with housing and other expenses. Vets have options not available to others but you need to do just like everyone else, work hard and save-- Good Luck The VA won''t be helping much when it comes to housing. Have you considered living someplace other than Brooklyn? When I moved to Michigan I didn''t know a single person. I''ve been here 18 years now. When I got out of the military I couldn''t afford to live in california. I had a friend while serving on active duty who only had good things to say about the Southwest Michigan area, so I did some research and moved here. In Battle Creek, I have a large 1 bedroom apartment with a full size washer and dryer, dish washer,...

Q: 

What are my rights to the property I live on !!

A:  Your position may be mighty slippery--an oral deal in land may be all but impossible to enforce  by operation of law which says such deals must be in writing--and at best you might be a mere month to month tenant on owners lands.  Your absence of a written contract is a big problem if he seeks to  forget any and all terms of the deal.   You stand to lose everything---and I strongly suggest you review your options with skilled counsel pronto--you may be able to jawbone some salvage of the deal but I would NOT leave it to chance --use a paid advocate "Me and my family moved on to this property 10 years ago and had a verbal agreement with the owner to purchase the property however did not obtain a written contract." What an...

Q: 

What to do if I was coerced into giving custody of my children to my ex husband?

A:  I am unable to find case law involving these circumstances and revocation of  a custody order. I''m unsure what you mean by someone else picking up the protection order, but generally the request for such an order must be made by the person in need of protection or their legal representative. Modification of custody may be made when a party demonstrates a significant change in circumstances. Generally, custody is not revoked as a means of punishment to the parent, but is based upon the best interests of the child. Factors the court will consider in determining the best interests of the child include: 1. The...

Q: 

What is the process in FLA to have my husband adopt my sons?

A:  Wow, you''ve been around..No, I''m just kidding :P To be honest with you, he can be a father without having to go through the financial strain of legally adopting them. Your husband can be ''dad'' to your boys without adopting them. Two things I''d like you to consider: 1) Maybe your boys'' fathers aren''t the greatest guys around, but having your new husband adopt them won''t change their DNA. Your children have a right to know who their natural father is and no piece of paper will change that. 2) Do you realize that if you and your husband divorce someday (I hope it doesn''t happen, but the divorce rate is 50% or more in this country and I am proof of that), he will have half the rights to YOUR children? Would you really want to split

Q: 

Landlord changed rental property...What can I do?

A:  Back into the stall so that the drivers side shares the space the adjacent stall. If you have a larger car, ask to switch with another resident with a smaller car or one that does not move their car as often as you. Challenges and opportunities!~! While you certainly have cause to complain, this does not even come close to nullifying your lease. If you are not able to come to a mutually acceptable solution with your landlord, then you can give notice and move when your lease is up. I certainly appreciate your time in responding to my issue. Unfortunately I can''t back in, there is another row of cars on the other side. I don''t even have a large car (4 door sedan). However I am confused as to why I have no "merit" here. The parking in this neighborhood is a luxury that we pay a...

Q: 

I WANT TO ADOPT MY BOYFRiEND'S KiDS?

A:  Staci is right. My advice would be to run, and run fast. It is great that you have assumed a motherly role in the children''s lives. Kudos to you for that decision. It takes a good woman to accept the responsibility for kids that are not her own. However, every parent ( no matter how frequently they offer support or visit) deserves to play a role in their child''s life unless they are abusive or neglectful. I would recommend talking to the birth mother. Even if you have to have the talk in a public place or with a police escort (in case she is crazy) and tell her you love her kids and would like to adopt them. Let her know you are trying to provide them with a stable living situation and...

Q: 

How does a legal guardian in WA relinquish rights/how hard is it?

A:  You need to discuss this with the court or agency that awarded guardianship. Guardianship is not like adoption so it may be easier to get out of. But a lot depends on the terms of why and how guardianship was awarded. I strongly suggest that you consult an attorney. P.S. to other readers. This was asked in the Family law section, therefore any answer needs to deal with the legal issues. I am not happy with someone who takes on responsiblilty for a child then wants to dump that child when the going gets tough. But we don''t know the whole story here and this is not the forum for moralizing. So please keep answers to the legal issues. Thank you. I wasn''t sure where to post this. The...

Q: 

I am not a US resident yet and was married in NYC. Can I still apply for divorce?

A:  How long have you lived in New YOrk? When are you moving to Florida?...

Q: 

Can I be in charge of my OWN child support?

A:  Well, child support is not for the child directly, for the child to control, but for the parent to aid in caring for the child. They have an agreement for you to live with her, and for him to give a certain amount to her to help in supporting you. She doesn't have to give it to you or spend it on what you want her to. So while the amount might be equal to half the rent, it certainly doesn't mean that you are actually paying half the rent, or are entitled to any rights of the property. It's still her place. She just has to provide you with necessities, which she seems to have been doing. If you're staying with your father now, and your...
