Q: 

I am on a student visa in US and my passport expires in 5 months..?

A:  how do you want people to try to help you out? if you do not put your country of origin? you are supposed to renew your passport where you hold residency. Check your country embassy online. Most of country embassies issue new passport or extend the current one in US. If your passport is the only form of picture ID you may of course use it as long as it is valid. Forget about the 6 months period a passport must be valid longer you often read here. This was agreed upon for international travel long time ago but has meanwhile been replaced by bilateral agreements between individual countries in many cases. As an example at present citizens of 123 countries may travel to the united

Q: 

What are my chances of getting a Student visa (F-1) to USA?

A:  You''ve been to the united states thrice as a tourist/visitor and went back to Pakistan. You have a good record with the US Embassy in Pakistan and the USCIS (which is under the US Department of Homeland Security). Once you get admission to a university for post graduate studies and you have enough funds to pay your tuition fees and living expenses I don''t see any reason why they should deny you a student visa (F1). Good luck in your studies. The fact that you have been issued a tourist visa and have not violated that status should definitely be in your favor. Your chances seem quite good....

Q: 

Can you patent a sport/game?

A:  In most countries, once an invention (in this case - the game) has been made public, it is no longer patentable.  In the united states, there is a one year grace period after the invention is made public, after that the invention is no longer patentable. In all countries, you can not patent an invention that you have not developed. So it appears that there would be several problems in obtaining patent protection for your game, before you even are concerned about the patentability of the subject matter. But to answer your question, yes, generally speaking ia game is patentable subject matter. Its also possible that a field or arena which enables the game is patented, even if the game itself isn''t (I guess thats besides the point)....

Q: 

Should there be requirements for people that immigrate to North America in regards to learning English?

A:  I don''t think that this would even be a issue if we didn''t have " push 1 for english, push 2 for Spanish" thrown in our faces every time we went out. It really makes me mad. There are over 150 languages spoken in this country, so why are we only catering to the Spanish speaking population ? Yes, everybody migrating to this country should have to speak and read English. For safety reasons and for economic reasons. As a Business owner, it is a extra financial burden to either hire someone that speaks Spanish or to print materials in Spanish as well as English. This epidemic is killing the economy. I say if you live in an English speaking country then you have 1 year to learn the language or get out....

Suing for security deposit refund

A:  >>>Do I have to sue her were the contract was signed, where she now lives?<<< Usually it's best to sue in the jurisdiction where you rented the home. >>>How do I find her when I only have a PO box?<<< You could research where you cancelled checks clear her bank and look into county register of deeds--some are online. >>>Can I also sue her for the cost of getting the judgment?

Q: 

Does Naturalized Citizen have all rights/privileges as U.S. Born (Native) Citizen?

A:  PLEASE KEEP IN MIND THAT I''M NOT A lawYER.... however, a naturalized citizen is always a citizen 2nd class. He can vote, etc...but he can never run for presidential office, for example. Also, citizenship can be revoked for certain felony convictions. As concerns the case specifically, while you may have a claim of false imprisonment, perhaps even failure to grant a speedy trial, the remedies could only be sought in civil court, and it will take a lot of time, a lot of money, and a lawyer who has both (since most civil cases are fought on a contingency basis)to turn a profit. If you want to change the system, however, request a formal apology from high ranking INS officials (in writing) and then seek their committment to reviewing and...
