QUESTIONS

  • The windows in the bedrooms of our one story do not open, isn't that illegal because it's considered a fire hazard?
  • I rent a room inside a house with no lease month to month payment, the owner of the house lives in the room next to mine but when I'm not home he enters my room and searches my closet and drawers with the excuse of making sure i have no drugs. Also he is always knocking at my room door when I'm asleep to tell me to clean the room. Is that legal? I lock the door and when i come home the door is all the way open. Can i sue for invasion of privacy or what can i do? I'm going to vacate soon but I'm mad about he doing that i feel violated.
  • Me and my girlfriend are asian. Currently I am working in US by holding my non immigrant visa and she is staying in Asia. We are planning to get marry soon. Is it possible I sign a marriage certificate in US then courier to her to sign for her part? She needs to apply her Visa as my supplement with the legal Marriage Certificate before she can legally stay with me in US.
  • I am a married man with a 4 year old daughter. Two years ago my wife and I were temp seperated. I had a one nite stand with a woman who told me she couldn't get pregnant. Two years later I get paternity papers and am orderd to pay $900 a month in child support current with $25 rearage included. That leaves me Just $1100 a month to take care of my wife and daughter. The deduction for her is more than my daughter in my marriage. Do I have any avenues for getting this modified at all?
  • We had an installer for a cable company in our house. My dog broke through the gate and bit his pants which scraped his leg. No puncture through the skin, no bleeding. Not trying to minimize what happened. It was scary. He put in a claim with his workmans comp. Now the Workmans Comp insurance company is sending us notices that we are responible to re-emburse them. The notice says "Medical Lein" Is this legal? They are being paid by the company and they also want to collect from us? The letter says I should submit a claim to my home owners insurance. Help? Thank you, J
  • Can groom take the bride's last name?
  • I own a mobile home in a 55+ community. I currently have no income and can not afford to pay the lot rent. Can my daughter age 22 and friend age 20 move in and live there without me being there? Otherwise I lose everything and that is presently what is happening. I have tried selling but the park says that the person wanting to buy must fill out the background check in front of them, so those interested have not been able to buy due to the fact that most are out of state. I need help NOW, as I have to leave very soon and my daughter needs an affordable place to live.
