Q: 

is this lease/contract binding?

A:  Hello lisach You have not clearly stated whether you have or have not signed the lease agreement. You stated "Entered A Lease Agreement" with the landlord. Specifically, which is it? Entered, as in beginning talks, drafting up terms and conditions regarding a lease or actually having signed a lease? You mentioned costs and percentages of estimated electrical useage based upon the opinions of an electrician and your own investigation of potential useage. There is a HUGE difference between the two amounts. Enough to scare the #...#$#... out of you. And rightly so. However, if you already signed this lease agreement, it is binding and you could and most likely will be bound to it. Your only option here is to have the electrical utility open the account directly into your business...

Q: 

If I''m an illegal minor currently in the foster care system can they take my baby away?

A:  Hey Mark, you''re a guy and you''re pregnant? Jeez you can''t even change your screen name before you ask a silly question like that? Nice try. The government cannot take a baby away unless the mother is unfit. An immigration case is a totally different matter which is not reliant on pregnancy in any way. But a lawyer would need to be consulted about this, since the only grounds for obtaining lawful permanent residence would be humanitarian parole or refugee, though after birth, extremely unusual hardship on a citizen could come into play, if the mother was a person likely to become a public charge, she would generally not be granted cancellation of removal on those grounds. Your name is Mark, how are you pregnant?...

Q: 

Do I need a tax lawyer?

A:  hi. i''m also a MD resident. look up an estate attorney, not real estate or tax unless they direct you there. sorry, i''m not an attorney, i''m a cpa. once you''ve determined ownership you can then work on the tax consequences. i will throw this out though, based on your story, it sounded like when the titled automatically passed to her father. do the property records show this ? was her mom''s named removed ? if so, then it sounds like it was your fathers property. was your wife ever placed on the title ? that question has to be answered. even then, simply because a name is placed on an asset doesn''t necessarily make it a "gift" if you will. again, consult with an estate attorney who can review the wills, etc. & give you...

Q: 

I am in dire need of advice!!!

A:  Anytime an injured worker is placed on comp, that's precisely the time to contact a qualified workers' compensation attorney in your area, so that you can be properly advised of your rights under your states workers' compensation laws. Make no mistake about it; You need representation! For a good comp attorney, I would recommend using the "Find A lawyer" feature, to the right side of your screen. After logging in the appropriate information, it will pull-up a long list of workers' compensation lawfirms in your area of which to choose from. Additionally, if you belong to a union, then it would be smart to speak with your shop steward or business agent, and find out...

Q: 

I have a question for you veterans out there?

A:  I have had some nightmares, but its something I just man up and deal with. Never really faced any discrimination because of my service. I joined the Marines to make a better life for myself, I was a **** head as a teenager and I was headed right to jail if i didnt shape up. I wanted to quit, but I was honestly afraid to face my father if I failed. What keeps you going is the guy on your right and on your left, and you keep them going. What happens when its all over, you get on with your life, use your G.I Bill to go to school, get a job and all of that. I''ve never encountered discrimination, of course I don''t go out of my way to tell people I served either. I''ve never had any nightmares but I do reminisce alot. The main problems I faced were the choosing of my...

Q: 

Why is it the moment I speak out against illegal immigration that I am inevitably accused of being a racist?

A:  I feel the same way when people try to call me a ''Pro illegal liberal'' ***rolls eyes*** Watch this................ ''I am all for legal immigration BUT not preferencial legal immigration. I do not support the way immigration is handled in foreign offices and nor do I approve of ''political'' or ''diplomatic'' immigration. Our current system is awash. It is very confusing, requires too much paper work on the applicants part, the fees are exuberant, and it seems that the only people they want to come here are those that are already financially stable and have political ties to areas that concern us economically, financially, or diplomatically. In foreign offices that handle

Q: 

If someone is denied american citizenship up to what point can they appeal this decision assuming that they?

A:  No one can say how long it takes. A hearing will be held fairly soon, but it depends on the issue what happens then and how long it takes. You can always file a new application of course. From the Guide to Naturalizaton: (http://www.uscis.gov/files/article/M-476… 21. What can I do if USCIS denies my application? If you think that USCIS was wrong to deny your naturalization application, you may request a hearing with an immigration officer. Your denial letter will explain how to request a hearing and will include the form you need. The form for filing an appeal is the “Request for Hearing on a Decision in Naturalization Proceedings under Section 336 of the INA” (Form N-336). You must file the form, including the correct fee, to USCIS within...

Q: 

What is your reaction to Undocumented couple leave SB 1070 behind?

A:  Great...two more law breakers coming to my state,with their anchors in tow so my tax dollars can pay for their education. Hopefully PA passes a similar bill in the future. They aren''t going to go home,they are just going to relocate to another state so they can continue with the perks. There is not plenty of work in PA. Guess they''ll be applying for welfare for their kids as well as food stamps and government housing. Wow... Mexico is so much closer than Pennsylvania to Arizona... Maybe if the went home, and immigrated here legally... their nerves would be in better shape. It won''t be long until the Republicans in Utah pass the same type of laws. Technically, going to Utah wouldn''t make them immune from the law...

Q: 

What is "entitlement"?

A:  Speaking for myself, if I use the word entitlement, I am referring to something that someone is unable to obtain independently without a government program to provide it. In the case of adoption, I usually use this word in relation to people who espouse the ''right'' to have a child yet are reliant upon the government to create laws that provide them such child. Oftentimes the people who are espousing their ''right'' to a child are ironically opposed to people receiving financial benefits from the government, yet they see their own entitlement to a child as somehow different or even better. I also use it when addressing adoption laws. Going into an adoption, the prospective adoptive parents have no rights to protect. All of their ''rights''...

Q: 

Can my son be placed under arrest for an incident occuring on the school bus three weeks after?

A:  In some instances, the use of force is allowed to protect oneself if the person is justified in the belief that that such conduct is necessary to defend himself or another against such other''s imminent use of unlawful force. I suggest you contact a local attorney who can review all the facts and documents involved. Please see the Illinois statutes below to determine applicability.: Sec. 12-1. Assault. (a) A person commits an assault when, without lawful authority, he engages in conduct which places another in reasonable apprehension of receiving a battery. (b) Sentence. Assault is a Class C misdemeanor. (c) In addition to any other sentence that may be imposed, a court shall order any person convicted of assault to perform community...
