Q: 

Landlords and the law (ENGLAND) - Help please?

A:  You have a lot of questions and I will try to answer some of them for you. Regarding the deposit, you need to bring this up with the landlord and ask hiim what he has done with your deposit. He is not allowed to keep it. He must deposit it into one of three government backed deposit schemes by law and if he fails to do this, you are entitled to possibly three times the amount you gave him as deposit. So for example if you gave him £500 a judge could award you £1500 if he has failed to follow the law and deposit your money with one of the schemes. Had he deposited the money in a scheme, you would have received a letter from the scheme telling you how to get your money back at the end of your tenancy. The landlord cannot claim it was advance...

Q: 

law on towing a car

A:  In regards to the apartment complex question, it has been my experience that apartment management is the only entity that could authorize or request the tow. Parked too close, etc I doubt that you would/could get a legitimate tow company to move a vehicle on you say so alone. You could contact mall security for asistance if you were a shopping center. You would have to have the apartment complex order the tow. The policy would not come on to private property for that. And having a car towed because they park to close to you in a parking lot? Not going to happen....

Q: 

Need legal advice about on the job harassment - 10pts, please help! (long)?

A:  I assume you and your friend are in the US. First, unless your friend is working under a union contract or a written employment contract, then she is an ''at will'' employee. At will employees can be legally terminated for any or no reason, with or without notice, fair or unfair. The only protection for at will employees is the laws on discrimination (federal and state). Currently the only discrimination bases are: age (over 40), race, color, sex, disability, ethnic origin, nationality, religion, marital or military status. Some states also include sexual orientation. In order to prove discrimination your friend would need to prove that her supervisor treated her worse because of one of the above bases. To do that...

Q: 

Okay a couple is married, and there is no custody granted to either( in other words they haven''t gone to a lawyer)

A:  Well, to begin with, two wrongs do not make a right. I do not think it would look very good in court if the mother said the father refused to hand the child over, whether it is on private property or not.† Every father has the right to see his children. If I were the father I would talk to the attorney to see if there is anything that can be done in the meantime, or even see another attorney. It is not legal for a woman to withhold a child from the father, just as it is not legal for the father to do the same. When two people fight over custody the only†individual who really ends up getting hurt is the child. Many times parents will fight over the children just to get back at one another and that is a shame. I posted a website below that discusses South Carolina

Q: 

OVERPAYMENT ON W.C .CASE

A:  If you signed the C&R agreement, you in essence gave your authorization and accepted the terms of the agreement. There is no 'contingency'..once you sign, the IC signs and the judge signs, the case is over. "Questions: Can he advised me not to go trial?'' Of course the attorney can "advise'' you about the issues regarding your case, and settlement. That's what attorneys do. It's up to you to make the final decision as to accept the advise or not. ''Can he sumbit the C&R eventhough I tol dhim not to?'' If you didn't want the paperwork for the C&R submitted to the IC, you should not have signed off on the agreement. Although if I told my attorney NOT to submit the agreement until I told him to do so, I would expect him...

Q: 

Another question about the "Anchor Child"--Q

A:  No. Having custody of a child is not a way to circumvent other laws. Imagine a father or a mother being convicted of murder getting out of prison just because she or he has custody of a child. Impossible. Under immigration law a US citizen can only sponsor his or her parents for permanent residency once he or she (the child) is an adult. Has the father peitioned the court for custody? I would imagine he has a fair chance of cudtody since the mother is a flight risk. I heard that if you come to the United states with a visa and that visa expires, your status automatically changes to ?Removal?, means that you should be removed from the country. However, if you have an American citizen new born child, the INS may...

Q: 

age gap : am i committing a crime ?

A:  My sense is that the game is over. Leave it like that until the woman is 18. Took a while but I found an answer. It is called communicating with a minor across state lines. It is a federal offense. Carries fines of $10,000 to $100,000 and 4 to 20 years in jail, fines and jail time depend on the level of the offense. Is she worth all that? ...is a crime? Come on racer 72, my talking to my neice in Colorado is a crime? In many cases I''ve found your posts both insightful and informative, not so here! Cite statute if you would, then we can examine in detail law vs. activity charlie OK So I''ve got one guy whose saying something outrageous which can''t be true, and another guy who agrees w/ me that he''s out of his...
