Q: 

Why do you feel it''s important for teens to be aware of DUI laws?

A:  It is illegal in the US for teens to drink. If they obey that law, DUI is not an issue. Even if they drink, the only thing they need to know about DUI laws is that if they have ANY alcohol, they should not drive. I am not sure if it is wise for them ONLY to know about DUI laws.

It is hard for teens and even adults to understand cause and effect. I think they should...

A:  You could go in to more generic legal services as a legal secretary etc. However, If I were you, though this is a purely personal preference, I''d rather look at moving in to a different sector rather than making do with a second-rate role in law.

Q: 

judgment against me, how do I set up affordable payments?

A:  can you apply for a business loan to pay off the judgment? My credit is not the best (bankruptcy filed and discharged last fall). Small claims court set the interest rate at 4.3%, I can''t afford to get a loan with my poor credit rating (min. 12%). I dont have a problem paying this guy off over the next three years... he does. I just need to figure out how to get the court to set my payments so he isn''t screwing with my business accounts. "I have a judgment against me for $3,5 and the plaintiff wants full payment now." * I am sure that this is not a sudden demand.

This was a very difficult company to operate, as this demographic often called their credit card company prior to sending back the merchandise for returns, which resulted in a large number of chargebacks. I ended up selling the company because of these difficulties. PayPal wanted to close my account due these chargebacks. I spoke with the senior risk manager about this. I explained to her that I was no longer in the

USA Patriot Act and Banking laws

A:  "A certain well-known bank allowed a particular person to open a business account without properly confirming the authenticity of the business name and the owner."
