Q: 

If a Child is Already 18, Can the Father Be Made to Pay Child Support?

A:  “If a child is already 18 years old, can a father be made to pay child support? If so how many years would the father be required to pay back pay? (I live in the state of Tennessee and there has never been a child support order)” I’m going to answer under California law, but it would not surprise me if the law is the same in Tennessee. Child support continues until a child is both 18 and graduated from high school or 19 in any case. Child support orders are only modifiable back to the date of filing. Where, as here, no case for support has been filed, the Court cannot go back before the date of filing to a date when it could have ordered support and then order ongoing or back support. So chances are good that this father cannot be ordered to pay “back pay”...

Q: 

non-disclosure agreement

A:  Hello, In Europe board games (the game itself or the rules) cannot be patented, because they do not involve technical matter. If the game would contain items of a technical nature this might be different, but that is mostly not the case with board games. You will have the copyright on the game, however, and you might consider depositing a "utility model", or whatever this is called in your country, to protect it. I presume these things are the same in Australia, but you would have to check this out at the Australian patent office. So there is a good reason to ask for a non-disclosure agreement, so that you could sue your artist if he/she would want to bring the game on the market....

Q: 

How can I get released from a listing agreement with a broker ?

A:  quote:Originally posted by beaudeen...hotmail.com:I recently signed a realestate listing agreement with a new company in Belleville, Ontario. Canada. The problem is, which I just found out, is that other major companies such as Royal Lepage and Remax hate dealing with my company as they are small and always try to double end all of their listings. They offer 0 % financing for 14 months as well as they will pay up to $5000.00 for your downpayment. HELP ME IF THERE IS AN OUT. Read your contract provisions with respect to termination of the listing agreement. Most standard US Realtor forms call for a 30 day prior written notice cancellation for any reason. I am not sure what the language is in Canada....

Q: 

non-disclosure agreement

A:  Quote I am worried about bigger, more efficient competitors copying your public domain idea... it''s tough to be small. Ok, here''s a unorthodox question.... can I file for a provisional patent then (even though my patent won''t go though) but it will give me the patent pending status for a year that might keep the big boys away till I get it out there? Y''know, that is an unorthodox question.  Of course, you can, but should you? For a real application (not provisional), you have to sign a declaration under penaly of perjury that you are the first true inventor of the subject matter of your application.  I generally don''t recommend committing perjury, so that''s pretty clearly a bad idea. As for...

Q: 

non-disclosure agreement Between Designers?--Q

A:  You had best getting all the aspects of your venture done beforehand. An NDA merely means that private information revealed won''t be disclosed to third parties. That might not prevent your partner from filing for a patent on an idea for a process that you claim the two of you invented. An NDA will form the part of a basis for a joint venture agreement and which will likely contain terms relating to filing for patents and the area covered for your "brainstorming" activities. I''d see an attorney immediately and wouldn''t play around with a standard form and hoping that it will cover the situation. Get it done properly....

Q: 

Is it legal to write up an employee for being literally 1 min late in Ca.?

A:  Of course it is. You are supposed to be there and ready to work at the appointed time. And for the record. There are no laws that limit what an employee can be written up for. Late is late. Sounds a bit extreme, but entirely valid policy. Make sure you get to work at least 5-10 minutes before your shift starts so you can log in on time. Instead of work starting at 9:00, e.g., for your purposes, you start at 8:45, or whatever it takes to get you not just ''there'' but actually working by 9:00 on the dot. Be thankful for the write up. Being late is grounds for termination. You''re supposed to be there and ready to work by the time your shift starts, and 10 to 15 mins early is the rule of thumb. Yes it is. If they really want to persue this kind of action, they can. legal but what''s the...

Q: 

Is it worth for an Immigrant to become US Citizen?

A:  Eventually....yes. '' The Right to Sponsor Family Members for a Green Card: Becoming a U.S. Citizen grants the privilege of the ability to sponsor relatives for a green card. ''Immediate Relatives'' may obtain a green card immediately, while other categories such as siblings have a very long wait because only so many visas are issued each year per country per category. Here is more information on the family based immigration preference categories. Not Being Deported: Permanent Residents accused of a crime may be deported. The crime does not even have to be a ''serious crime''. Permanent Residents remain subject to potential deportation and are under the authority of USCIS and the Immigration Courts. The government can not take away a U.S. Citizen''s right to remain in the U.S. The Right...

Q: 

If i had a non-fault car accident, would the car finance be paid?

A:  No. Now assuming the other person is at fault, they have insurance, and they accept blame, then they will give you the fair market value for your car assuming it''s a total loss. Think about it, why would the insurance be obligated to give you profit? Let''s say you have a car worth $8,000 and you owe $12,000. Is the insurance obligated to make you whole by giving you the worth of the vehicle, or are they obligated to give you an extra $3,000 because you made a bad financial decision? You can, at the time you take out the loan, get GAP insurance that will pay the difference between what the value is and what you owe in case of a total loss. But you have to opt for it in the beginning. Going on the presumption that you are in the US - the vehicle that is financed must by law carry complete...
