Q: 

roommate skipped town

A:  "1 Can I sue her in indiana?" You would have to. That's where the court would have leverage over her wages and bank accounts. "2 How long do I have to file?" The statute of limitations on oral agreements is 6 years in IN. Hope you won't wait that long. "3 Can I include travel expenses with my claim?" No. Here's a link to IN small claims court info: http://www.small-claims-court.com/infomenu.html The local court where she lives should have similar info available at the court, by mail, or on a website. My first step would be to check with your bank to see if the check has cleared yet, if it hasn't, put a stop payment...

Q: 

Getting custody from Alaska to Oklahoma

A:  Have you contacted the family law self-help center in OK in the court who has jurisdiction? You may be able to file a modification there pro se since your ex is incarcerated. I would also contact the family law self help center here in AK. I can tell you from first hand knowledge they are wonderful at answering questions. They will even walk you through filling out the forms step by step. Also, you can call lawyer referral service and they will put you in touch with a lawyer who has agreed to charge a minimal fee for an initial consultation. The family law self help center also has a link to the list of atty's in AK that offer unbundled services. Just some...

Q: 

legal aid for immigration helpful?

A:  Hi. My husband just petitioned for me through forms I-130 and I-129(K-3Visa) a few weeks ago. We got married here in Mexico and now he went back to the states to send the forms. If he's a USC and you are in Canada, it's really quite simple. In my case it was complicated becuase I was deported after 20 years in the states, but the forms that are under www.uscis.gov are easy to understand and easy to fill out. Also, there is a 1.800. number you can call for help. what we attached to those forms (which he fills out since he's petitioning for you) were 4-passport style pictures, money order, copies of ID's, passports, social security cards, birth certificates, marriage certificates, in my case paperwork of visas when i entered the states and my deportation papers) You...

Q: 

Small claims Court for deposit, Landlord counter-suing

A:  "With no lease, can a landlord charge for these charges?" You did have a lease agreement; it evidently wasn't in writing, however. He couldn't get away with charging for that stuff in any case. Doesn't sound like he will have an easy time proving any damages to the property given his laundry list of ridiculous charges; these alone will severely affect his credibility. You've *told* him that you have witnesses and visual proof, yes? If so and he's going ahead, he's just plain stubborn (or nuts). "He then sent a list of deductions which included time off (including before moving in, after we left, and going to the pre-trial), helping us move a couple pieces of furniture.travel expenses (air fare, food,...

Q: 

Visitation Schedule / Transportation expense

A:  You would need to file to modify the temporary custody order.  It will be up to the court to determine whether you can move the child out of state and if you can, who would be responsible for travel expenses.  He will owe child support whether he works off the books or not;  the only issue will be establishing how much his income is by working off the books....

Q: 

Is there a limit to required travel for salaried employee?

A:  Answer to your primary question is no, and that would be for both exempt (I'm assuming that's what you mean by "salaried") and nonexempt. Wage and hour law in Virginia does not require reimbursement of travel expenses at all. The state of the company HQ is irrelevant. However, contract law may come into play here regarding your reimbursements and the timing of them.  Why does the company say it is taking so long to process your reimbursements.  They don't provide a company credit card? You can eat on $25 a day.  Not well, necessarily, but it's certainly  possible. If you quit because you don't like the working conditions, it is...

Q: 

Small claims Court Counter-Suit?

A:  travel expenses? No! None of the states recognize the expenses a litigant incurs in attending court as an item of court costs or as supporting a claim or counterclaim for monetary damages. (An exception might be if the court were to find that the claim was so spurious and lacking of legal merit as to indicate a malicious motive.) _____________ Q: Could you be held responsible for the defendant corporations attorney fees in defending your lawsuit? A: Under normal circumstances, only if the corporation came out on top. And then depending on the nature of the case and any applicable Texas...

Q: 

Reasonable funeral expenses in Iowa

A:  "Although in a different state, I do know of others who have been reimbursed by the estate for such travel expenses. " "Others" meaning ... who? You mean as to this aunt's funeral or just people in general? I know of no state where relatives get their travel expenses reimbursed just for going to the funeral. Even if there were such a provision, what one state allows is meaningless. Such expenses are not the estate's problem -- they aren't "funeral" expenses. If you've heard of someone getting their travel expenses paid for...

Q: 

Employee Business Expense

A:  Your choice of where to live is not a job requirement nor is commuting expense deductible--I don't see any relief in sight for you--just a layman.. Check out IRS Publ 463. It addresses travel expenses. http://www.irs.gov/pub... This is not business related travel and you'll not get any deduction for it. It is instead a non-deductible personal expenditure....

Q: 

refusal to pay expenses

A:  "The situation I have is, I was fired while on a business trip. My former employer has refused to reimburse me for those expenses prior to my discharge. Is that legal? In my offer letter it states that all business expenses will be repaid." Since the State of Illinois does not require employers to pay for their employee's business expenses, you will need to sue the employer in small claims court. "Also, my former boss/owner is claiming that I quit and she didnt fire me, which is a huge lie. Now my unemployment has been delayed until a formal interview and final determination of eligibilty has been...
