Q: 

Confused and Scared

A:  Laymans take: Unfortunately a large part of your problems seem to be due to your lack of competent counsel at virtually every turn. And its most doubtful even the best of lawyers (and I am NOT a lawyer ) could give you more than the most basic of guides. You are in a sense taking a rubber knife to a gunfight and hte other side has a colt 45. right now Dad has a major edge --and you need a major champion ! And I doubt there are many champions who work for free . I don't think the judge will be amused by your letter, if he agreed to see it. You do nothing but talk bad about dad, and that is never a good route to go. Statements like these: <<>> May anger the judge, and give him the impression that...

Q: 

Peaceable Possession Texas

A:  Generally, she''d need to go to court for the court to determine the rights in the property. In most states this is known as a quiet title action. The process involves giving all known parties with a potential interest notice of the action and publishing notice of it to give any interested parties a chance to participate in the action and raise their claims to the property. It is not something that can be done in two weeks, nor it is really a do it yourself project. I suggest she see an attorney for advice on how to proceed. Laymans take: I take it this is not your area of legal expertise? I'll bet this cannot be done anywhere close to 2 weeks. Your choice of words could be FATAL...

Q: 

I live near Camp Pendleton. marine corps base. see lights....?

A:  The lights you see are probably flares fired from mortars. Nothing to worry about. Wish we could see them here in south county, Spring Valley. I do sort of miss them. Good luck to you Kelly. Assuming that you are monitoring this website as I write this. The lights you are seeing are flares that have either been dropped from an aircraft or shot by a mortar or artillery. Each is extremely bright and fall via parachute. Obviously, there is a live fire exercise ongoing at Pendleton. So, nothing to worry about. Sleep well and peacefully. Lieutenant Colonel, US Marine Corps - Retired The Marines take every safety precaution before they set off any type of explosive. This is the reason Camp Pendleton is so big. Yep, they''re mortars. My boyfriend is in the infantry...

Q: 

What happens with a law if a lower court says that it's unconstitutional?

A:  The lower court's ruling is binding on the parties and binding in it's jurisdiction. If one of the parties is the State or the federal government, which it typically would be, then the ruling is binding in that entire jurisdiction. However, the precedent isn't binding on other courts who, if asked to evaluate a similar law may disagree. If it is appealed, which it typically would be, it goes to the Circuit court, which would then decide the case. The Circuit court has jurisdiction over several states, so whatever they say is binding on all District courts within their...

Q: 

It''s a difficult situation, but who has a better chance at physical custody--Q

A:  The most important thing for her to do is get herself together as best as possible. She probably needs consistent counseling and therapy. It must have been a very difficult situation for her. If she cannot provide for a stable home (and it seems he may not be able to either), then you obviously have a situation involving other people. It doesn''t seem so likely that he can take them from her (putting it that way), especially if there are numerous prior complaints of abuse. It''s impossible to say what will happen since there are so many factors and one post cannot obviously sum up all the relevant facts. Has the husband contested the divorce? Has there been an arrangement with regard to the children? Her husband is the one pushing for the divorce. (Irrelevant-I think he does it to make...

Q: 

Executrix says Testator made a mistake in the Will

A:  For future reference, big blocks of text are difficult to read. Please hit "enter" a couple of times every so often for next post. "According to the partnership papers for that LP she is contesting that the provisions in that LP say that my husband could only leave his interest in the LP to blood relatives unless the General Partner (her) gives written permission, which she did not do." And did she show you the partnership agreement that says this? "right after the reading of the Will the executrix spent several thousand dollars of the estate money ... having the attorney's who drew up the partnership agreements try to find a way to keep the LP from being distributed as my husband's Will reads." She's not supposed to use...

Q: 

Marriage in the states + children: B-2 or K-1? Plus above 21 child: B-2 and then F-1?

A:  Dear All, It''s nice to see so many msgs and ppl discussing issues on visa/immigration and find out we''re not left alone in this worries. Going straight to the point(s): My mother, who is a Brazilian woman legally divorced and has 2 under age children (14 and 17) plus me (of 23), is to marry an American widower. Considering that she and all her children already are B-2 visa holders, the couple have been wondering for the best option to be together sooner and quicker - meaning by July so that the children can start their school year in the states. Here''s what they''ve thought of so far: a) applying for a K-1 visa (and respective visas for the younger children). We are aware of the medical exams and interviews but the only Consulate that does it is in Rio, meaning...

Q: 

Will I end up in jail if she takes me to court?

A:  If you''ve never had sex you are probably OK. Some of the other responses may be what you *want* to hear, but yes, if your writings could be construed as a threat by a ''reasonable person'' you could wind up in trouble. Irregardless, you need to be much more mature because family is family and you don''t want to alienate the family of those you are involved with. That may be too late. I would suggest an apology at a minimum and pray like hell that things cool down. Moreover, depending on the jurisdiction you live in, you could be charged with child molestation or similar sexual offenses EVEN if you just ''fooled around'' and did not have sexual intercourse. The legal age of consent varies dramatically from area to area, so it is impossible for me to say. In my area, it is illegal for...

Q: 

Does Commissioner's Personal Interest Constitute "Conflict of Interest" in Zoning?

A:  Quoting ALogan... QUESTIONS: 1) Does a commissioner''s personal interest represent a conflict of interest? Can he be blocked from voting? 2) Can the county legally tell an owner he cannot do any development (no residential, no commerical) while development goes on elsewhere in the area? 3) As a last resort, since it is zoned as agricultural, could the owner lease the property for other uses, such as stables for horses or raising cattle? No livestock has been on the property since approximately the 1970s. Perhaps that option might sway some objectors to see residential housing or a shopping center as a better alternative. Thanks for your help.... Thank you for your reply....
