Q: 

What are an Alleged Father’s Rights if the Mother Leaves the State and Doesn’t Tell Him that She is Pregnant?

A:  “If a pregnant woman leaves the state and has the baby without telling the alleged father, what are the alleged father’s rights?” I do not know of any State that would give an alleged father any rights to prevent the termination of a pregnancy or to force termination of a pregnancy. Even if a prenatal paternity action could be filed, that choice would still be left to the mother whether to carry the child to term. A Mother will be asked at the hospital who is the father, though she might answer “unknown” and that may go down on the birth certificate. There are other laws to establish a presumed father (i.e. she is married). Additionally if mother receives public assistance, the government will want to know who the father is for...

Q: 

For people working in the legal field - Is it easier to work for a small law firm or a larger one?

A:  The issue is not whether a small firm is less likely to be a "factory" when compared to a "large" law firm. Unfortunately, a paralegal certificate often removes bonuses which would normally be part of a legal secretary benefit package, i.e., a merit or Christmas bonus. And there is the consideration that you may be assigned a lot of overtime assignments which will require long work hours which may run through the weekend. Again, what is the paralegal certificate embody as a course of study. A specialized paralegal certificate in intellectual properties, litigation are the most highly prized certificate. And we have to take into consideration the fact that the bulk of paralegal billings are to generate higher fees for partner reviews and therefore, many law firms [big...

Q: 

Small business owner having a dispute with Rent Increases with the LandLord. What are my Legal options?

A:  The answer depends on the laws in the area that you are located, as well as the contract that you have with the landlord. You should consult a lawyer in your area. Generally speaking, most rental lease agreements create a month to month tenancy. Meaning rent is paid monthly. Usually leases are for a time certian, like six months or one year. In most cases, leases of one year or more must be in writing to be valid. Once the lease period is up, the tenancy continues on a month to month basis. Landlords are usually restricted from raising the rent by either the lease agreement, or sometimes by statutory provisions. In commercial leases, the lease agreement will usually spell out the terms for raising rent and will describe what notice to the tenant is necessary...

Q: 

What part of the Arizona law is illegal and how does it impede federal duties?

A:  Nothing about the immigration reform is illegal. People who oppose the law simply have not read the actual details or are too stupid to understand them. Police cannot pull you over for being hispanic, you have to make a traffic violation or something else illegal, then if you cannot present a valid drivers license you may be asked to present proof of being a citizen. Somehow, people seem to think that by enforcing the law, police are being bigots and racist. The fact of the matter is that liberals are trying to find any way they can make conservatives and tea party members seem racially aligned. It is simple as this. I, being an American citizen, have to carry ID with me at all times. Sooooo, why should anyone else be expected to not uphold the same laws as I am....

Q: 

What are rates for car insurance?

A:  There are several ways that you can consider.Call your local agent or do the online quote yourself.Take which way,it depends on your time and knowledge. There are way too many variables there to give an accurate answer. These would include location, type of car, age of car, driving history, eligible discounts, ect. But first time drivers would be the highest, you can''t get a drivers lisecne without drivers ed, by 25 years old your rates will be lower, and if you''ve been convicted of a DUI getting insurance may be impossible but if you can find it, it would be very expensive. Call an insurance agent (maybe the one a close friend or relative uses) or go onto sites like Progressive or American Family. They shoild be able to tell you or, at least , point you in the right direction.. The...

Q: 

What happens when local law conflicts with federal law?

A:  What happens? Usually a lawsuit in federal court if there is a conflict. But generally federal law trumps local law. federal law with trump local and state law—it''s called The Supremacy Clause in the U.S. Constitution.. Feds first, all other laws are only interesting. The federal laws are always first in line; state and local regulations come later. There are exceptions, however…federal law preempts state law if it actively is meant to on the face of the law or if it occupies the entire area of the law. In the case you''re talking about, it''s more like ordinances at battle. I...

Q: 

What are requirements of adopting through the state?

A:  We have 2 girls adopted through DHHS. We were foster parents first while the parents did reunifications (well, they tried but failed to do what they needed to) for about 2 years. With the state, you can adopt a child that''s parents right have already been terminated (you won''t have to deal with reunification and waiting for all that) or you can do foster care first (no guarantee that the child won''t go back with their parents). There are classes to get licensed and home studies (interviews, investigations and home inspections, etc). Plus, they will obviously be very careful to match you and the child to be the best choice for them. Each state is different, but the general process is the same. You should contact your local DHHS and see about how to become licensed for foster care (which...

Q: 

Adoptees - what was the experience like?

A:  1. No. Being adopted is only one facet of me and by no means the most important. I am a woman, african american, gay, an artist, an activist, a daughter, a lover and a friend. Those things are all more a part of who I am than being an adoptee. 2. My parents are white so it was always obvious that i was adopted. I think the biggest affect adoption had on my life was to teach me that families come in all shapes, sizes and colors and that love is what makes a family, not genetics. 3. Yes, I did meet my birth mother, her mother and her children. While it was interesting I didn''t feel any kind of bond with them and we had nothing in common. I may or may not keep up contact long-term but I don''t foresee considering them family in my future. 4. No, I don''t consider there to be a stigma to...

Q: 

Why are babies put up for adoption?

A:  The main reason is that their parents don''t want them (eg: they are just lazy and doesn''t want to bother) and other reason is that parents can''t look after them like they are on drugs or they are in prison or they are too poor. There are loads of reasons why but these are the most common. I think a lot of times babies are put of for adoption because it would be best for the baby, most usually because the mother is too young, unwed, and barely able to take care of themselves, much less support a baby. Sometimes, it is selfish reasons, but in most cases I think it is done out of love. the most typical reason is that the mother does not feel able to look after the child and does not want an abortion. One reason; The mother, who is slightly retarded (FASD) doesn''t feel loved by her...
