Q: I frequent a pub where they feature music bingo.

For the final round, everyone pays $5 per bingo card. The first person to fill their entire card wins the pot, sometimes it's over $1000. Is this completely legal and is there anything to watch out for?

Q: I have joint custody of my girls. My girls are going to be signed to a record label. Do we need a signature from him?

He lives in the state of LA, owes a very large amount of child support. Which also means he does NOTHING to support them. Can he have some say so on their earnings and/or does he have to be present when we sign contracts? What kind of lawyer do I need to make sure they are covered legally?

If you have primary physical custody, it should not be an issue if you are signing on their behalf. You papers should address the signing of contracts for them. You may want to look at entertainment attorneys if you are looking for representation in the negotiation of contracts.
