Q: 

My wife owns a house in Maryland. We live in Florida. If we allow the house to fall into foreclosure, which laws apply?

A:  Trick question: You are bound by either Maryland or Florida laws depending on the issue. Today, you are Florida residents and are subject to Florida traffic and criminal laws when you are within Florida's borders. The same holds true for you when you are in Maryland and every state in between. The difficult part of your question regards civil issues and the proper jurisdiction for civil actions. Federal rules of civil procedure are covered in two semesters of law school, and some schools teach local rules in a third semester. It would be impossible for me to summarize all of the rules in play, and it would be folly for you to accept what I am about to write as the definitive answer to your open-ended question. ...

Q: 

Does the Safe Third Country Agreement apply to Canadians and Americans seeking refuge across the border?

A:  No, the Safe Third Country Agreement between Canada and the US does not apply to citizens of either country. Canada has raised objection to the issue because of the possibility that an American might actually be harassed by the US Government, something that has happened in the past. Canada insists on drawing the line at the border on all treaties and policies shared with the US. Canada is still its own country and will not allow a bully country like the US tell it how to run its own internal affairs. As for the possibility of an American gaining asylum in Canada, the truth is that most Americans who try this usually don''t have a case that realistically constitutes persecution. If, however, the US Government decides that they want to shut you up about something and...

Q: 

What laws if any, apply toward the police''s right to search my RV in Arizona?

A:  Search and seizure is covered under the Fourth Amendment, so it is the same in every state. When you are on a public road, police can search if they determine there is probable cause there is something illegal in the vehicle (Carroll v. United States). If someone in the vehicle is arrested, the police can search the area they had access to just prior to the arrest (Arizona v. Gant). If something illegal is seen in plain view, it can be seized (Arizona v. Hicks). That will then allow them to search the rest of the vehicle under Carroll. Once your motor home reaches its final destination and is on private property, it is then considered a home and laws pertaining to vehicle searches no longer apply. Cops will need a warrant or probable cause...

Q: 

What should I major in if I want to apply to law school and Medical school?

A:  You don''t need any specific major or classes to get into law school, so put that part of it out of your mind. So you want to go to law or medical school? law students aren''t required to be a certain major… but it would look strange to law schools to apply with a neuroscience degree unless you tell them your reasoning for it… like you want to specialize in medical cases or something. You also want to pick a degree that will actually help you with it. English, criminal justice, psychology (maybe), political science. For med school, you will need a lot of biology, chemistry, and anatomy. The two things are almost mutally exclusive. You may have to double...

Q: 

What business credit cards are not attached to my personal credit?

A:  People think once they ***** up their own personal credit the next thing they can do is have a business and get credit that way but it doesn''t work like that. Your personal social security number and credit rating are going to be used to extablish credit when you start out and even well beyond. Added Reality is as a beginning business you are NOT going to go out and secure credit using an unknown/ unestablished business name or identifying number! Once your business is big enough you should find a card that isn''t cosigned by the owner. I work for a large company and we don''t have any company cards except home depot and office depot, vendors give you 30 days to pay.

Q: 

My company hired a company to help us design and print labels for our line of products. No contract was ever offered or signed. I have paid invoices which reflect charges for the companies time, film made, printing, plates, etc. They also put some ads together for us. Now, after a year or so, they are claiming ''copywrite'' and ownership of the label designs! This came up when we wanted to shop prices for the printing of the labels.Since when does somebody you hired to get labels printed have the right to hold hostage the film, plates, etc that we have paid for? They suggest that we cannot even do our own ads or have another printer do the work without infringing their ''property'' rights! Do the copywrite laws apply here?

A:  Welcome to some of the interesting issues raised by out-sourcing, independent contractors, and other non-employee business relationships!Just because you paid for something to be created does not necessarily mean that you own the rights to it! In general, the individual who creates something (an invention, a document, a piece of art, computer software, etc.) retains all the rights to copy, distribute, and publicly display that creation. This is true even if the creator is paid for all of the creator''s time and materials. If the person or entity who pays for the work wants the right to reproduce the work (or manufacture the invention), a written agreement between the person paying for the work and the person creating the work must spell out what rights the person...

Q: 

My husband was laid off work back in September and relocated to NM to start a business, which has proven successful. I will be seeking employment there as well, and gave notice to my current employer that my final day of work will be 12/4/09. I will be self-employed and working as a substitute teacher until I find a job in NM. How do I request a modification to my current support amount as I will experience a significant loss of income? How do you create a new parenting worksheet when you don''t know how much your monthly income will be? What steps do I need to take to start this process?

A:  Considering the change in state and in employment, you may want to consult with an attorney to see how the laws apply to your specific situation. The following is general information about child support modification in Arizona. Rule 91(B) of the Rules of Family law Procedure discuss modification of child support in Arizona. General information about modification is located at A.R.S. §  25-503 (F), subsection F of the statute states: Any order for child support may be modified or terminated on a showing of changed circumstance that is substantial and continuing, except as to any amount that may have accrued as an arrearage before the date of notice of the motion or order to show cause to modify or...
