Q: 

Can a will determine who my child will go to if something happens to me?

A:  Quote: Yes you can specify guardianship in your will. Its possible that it might be overturned by a court, but unlikely. Scott,let me respectfully disagree with you. Here are my arguments: A legal guardian is a person who has the legal authority (and the corresponding duty) to care for another person due to childhood and etc.The guardian has to be appointed by the Court,not by the will.Almost 50 states have provisions that the parents are children''s guardians.The parents can designate who will be the child''s guardian in event of their death.But here is one little detail...both parents have to be dead. In other way if one of parents is dead the other will assume all rights and duties/i.e. he/she is entitled to full custody/.The will CANNOT repeal the

Q: 

Who''s at fault for more than 12 million illegals immigrants living in the U.S.A?

A:  I blame the people who break the law! Sorry, it is illegal for them to be here. They are the ones who broke the law. And so it is their responsibility, not the government''s. the mexicans THEMSELVES ARE AT FAULT FOR THE POOR CHOICES THEY MAKE......psychologically what you suffer from is called/termed...transference.....it is when you readily acknowledge a fault yet seemingly, willfully twist it to become ''someone else''s fault''......grow up. Americans are sick and tired of reading that u have to be ''bi-lingual'' to fill a job. It really means that only Hispanix can apply even if they only speak spanish. It''s racism pure and simple. If a person who speaks 3 languages is interviewed he is told that he is overqualified. It''s racism pure...

Q: 

What is the correct way to get an order for visitation if it was not set out in the divorce?

A:  Your first question was unclear as to whether the visitation decision had been made, but just not entered into the court records. A writ of mandamus is used to have an official carry out a required duty, rather than to force a change of decision. Visitation is governed by state, rather than federal laws. Oklahoma law allows a judge not to make an order for visitation with the non-custodial parent if the judge thinks it''s against the child''s best interests. The decision is a subjective determination based on the facts and circumstances in each case. The first state to impose a custody order retains ''continuing exclusive jurisdiction'' as long as one of the parties continues to reside in that state or if both parties agree to transfer...

Q: 

who''s responsible for power lines?

A:  The posts and the lines are owned by the utility company that has the maintenance responsibility for the region in which you live (e.g. in Southern England it is Scottish & Southern Electricity). It is NOT anything to do with who your chosen electricity supplier is. They are not responsible, however, for rectifying the issue. If you have the post actually in your land, there should either be an easement written into your land title to that effect, or there will be a wayleave that the utility company holds entitling them to do it. In most cases it does not entitle you to annual sums of money, but even if it does, the sums are modest. If there is no wayleave or easement and the power does not supply you, technically you may be able to ask them to remove the post. There is a statutory...

Q: 

What are my rights if I have a judgment and my debtor has filed for bankruptcy?

A:  It''s not impossible that creditors could buy the business, thought it''s unusual and is apt to be avery complex transaction; if you want to consider this, definitely consult with a bankruptcy attorney to see, given the status of the filing and the circumstances, what could be done. It is not recommended, however. The market value of a sole proprietorship is HIGHLY speculative--there is no general liquid market for a business like that and moreoever, so much of the value rests in the work, reputation, and relationships of the proprietor. If you  buy a CPA biz that is tarred by bankruptcy and where the CPA (who has the relationship) will either not work for you or will work for you probably half heartedly (it''s not his biz anymore), what exactly are you buying? The old tax...

Q: 

HELP! Ilinois Tollway authority has me stressed!! OHIO resid

A:  "I commuted between Ohio and the Western Burbs of Chicago for a year." Ouch...and I thought MY commute was bad! That's gotta be 200+ miles each way. Did you do that daily? "Will Ohio take into consideration that Illinois can't prove it was me driving?" Who says the IL authority can't prove it was you? And, I doubt the State of OH will care. If you continue to ignore this, you'll end up with a judgment against you in IL, and that judgment can be brought to OH and enforced through the OH courts unless you can prove that it shouldn't be enforceable because of one of the VERY few exceptions to enforcement of sister-state judgments. You need to deal with this in IL ASAP. "Will Ohio consider the harsh penalty for skipping...

Q: 

Who Pays For Genetic Testing in Paternity Case in Utah?

A:  If a court action is filed, either parent may be ordered to pay costs, including the cost of genetic testing. The cost of genetic testing is typically assessed against the defendant/father when paternity is established, and may be assessed against the plaintiff/mother when allegations of paternity are disproved. In some cases, where the parties are receiving public assistance, the court may order the county to pay the genetic testing costs. Unmarried fathers have rights and duties similar to those of married fathers. Couples who are living together but are not married should take steps to ensure that both are recognized as the legal parents. Both parents can be listed on the birth certificate. A parent who is not listed may be able to be added after the birth of a child if the parent...

Q: 

Liability for sales outside the U.S

A:  "A foreign company manufactures a device which infringes a method patent." Are you stating that: (i) the method of making the device is claimed; or (ii) the device may be used to practice a claimed method? If you mean (ii), then my next question is: Does the device have any substantial non-infringing use? - Rich The device can be used to perform the claimed method.  Assume there is no substantial noninfringing use and so (as I stated originally) there could be a claim of contributory infringement. Let''s look at "unbeknowst" a bit.   One can lack actual knowledge in situations where constructive knowledge might be imputed because a reasonable person would have looked and the unreasonable person would deliberately not inquire or would simply refuse to draw an...

Q: 

Who Own''s The Website

A:  The answer depends on things that are not clear from your post.  If the content writer was an employee who wrote the content within the scope of his employment, the LLC would own the work as a work for hire.  If the content writer was a free lancer or a contractor the writer is likely to own a copyright in the material. I''d recommend that you *NOT* attempt to post enough facts in a public forum to allow someone to give you a better answer. Talk to a lawyer versed in copyright law.  One you''ve fleshed out the situation, you''ll get advice you can use to decide what to do next....

Q: 

Martial law - constitutional Basis?

A:  chesler...post.harvard.edu (David S Chesler) wrote in message news:<nvt7rvo4h4v6o3bur83h2agv49j56s3qmq...4ax.com>... Where is the constitutional authority for the Executive branch to take over, without checks or balances by the other branches, nor limited by anything but "necessity"? Section 501.5 appeals to "an accepted principle of our Government." Can they do better than that? The checks and balances take place _after_ the fact, when congressional investigations and/or criminal proceedings or lawsuits in the courts require the executive to account for his actions and justify them in accordance with the rules and guidelines you quoted. The same way those branches may investigate an Exxon...
