Hector E. Quiroga's answer Maybe. More information is needed. Acquisition of citizenship for a child born abroad is tricky, especially in the case of a USC father and an illegitimate birth. You would do well to consult with an immigration attorney who can advise you based on all the details of the case.
Richard Sternberg's answer First, the question needs to be asked by the prospective client needing the representation. Second, it needs to be asked of a French advocat rather than a US lawyer, and Justia is only visited by American lawyers. Third, this presents no International Law questions, but is best presented to a French advocat handling Family Law.
Salim U. Shaikh's answer Ref your query. If a child carried valid travel document, the accompanying parent repeat parent can take along that child wherever s/he travel, hence, no violation of international law. In case where the domestic court restrict a child to keep within their jurisdiction and is taken away by one parent out of that jurisdiction without their permission, the remedy lies with that court.
Richard Sternberg's answer Unless the Mexican hotel or some other potential defendant, depending on the cause of the injury, has assets in the U.S., the type of law firm you need is a Mexican one. It is possible in many cases to get jurisdiction for actions that occurred in the U.S., in which case, you might consult an experienced PI lawyer.
Richard Sternberg's answer Many lawyers practicing International Trade law have contacts around the world and can research for qualified lawyers in foreign countries. Also, the U.S. Embassy in many countries maintains a list of local attorneys, though the reference may not constitute a referral. As far as I know, there is no Avvo.com covering French advocates.
Richard Sternberg's answer I’m away from my desk as I read this, so I can’t give you citations, but the U.S. required all diplomats to obtain auto insurance after some fairly nasty accidents in D.C. in the late Eighties or early 90’s. Before then, most embassies carried insurance anyway, but it is now required. Sovereign immunity still applies above the insured coverage, and there are a few tiny “gotcha” wrinkles, so this is not best pursued pro se. Get a lawyer who knows both litigation and has dealt with...
Camille Brooks Ibrahim's answer Depending on the specific account guidelines and contractually binding terms will determine if a breach of contract is pursuable. If it was not contractually then you should be ok
Peter D. Mlynek's answer No, it is not an international patent. This is because there is no such thing as an "international patent". There is an international patent *application*, which starts with the letters "PCT/" or "WO".
You should be able to readily ascertain if a patent publication is a patent or not, because the front page usually tells you that it is a patent, and it also tells you the name of the jurisdiction.
Richard Sternberg's answer There are many steps, and the sequence of the steps differs depending on the product, the market, the suppliers, any licenses needed, and many other factors. Indeed, once might say that the first step is getting the basic business knowledge on learning the steps by getting an MBA and/or a legal education, but many quite successful importers have neither. I'd suggests buying an hour of time from a lawyer who knows a little about international trade and corporate formation and discussing your...
Aubrey Claudius Galloway's answer Probably not, unless said courts are in the same physical jurisdiction where the ship that was victimized is registered. The court of original jurisdiction is where the (non-pirate) ship is registered. For example, many cruse lines register native to the Bahamas; if one of those vessels were attacked by pirates, the Bahamas is where legal action could be entertained.
Richard Sternberg's answer From whom? For what? It is not illegal and no licenses are required by US law to transfer money to a US entity or person, but there may be issues in Singapore or issues involving other aspects of the transaction. If I’m doubt, run the transaction past a lawyer in a consult. Often, consults can be purchased as independent services.
Richard Sternberg's answer You need to contact a lawyer in the country or jurisdiction where your father resided at the time he died. If your father owned property in the US, you may also need a US lawyer in the jurisdiction where the property lies. But, you start by returning to your father's funeral, and, after being with the family, you might find out what your mother or your siblings have already done.
Unfortunately, I know of no equivalent to Justia or Avvo for European lawyers. Many US-based International...
Richard Sternberg's answer Your love for your canine may be such that you don't want to hear any of this, but, as a dog-lover myself and a lawyer, I think it is good news. In the U.S., a dog is property. Immigration law, adoption law, and custody law have nothing to do with the issues. The only problems I would foresee in an unauthorized person taking your dog are: 1) a claim of theft, which, for most dogs would be a misdemeanor; and 2) public safety issues about bringing a live animal across national boundaries. To...
Richard Sternberg's answer The ICC has no jurisdiction in New Mexico. The United States withdrew its signatory status to the Rome Treaty. Even if it had jurisdiction, the ICC would not address issues involving your arrest or incarceration unless you are a war criminal or the UN has delegated the case to the ICC, usually after genocide. You need a New Mexico lawyer.
Reading an answer on the Internet does not create an attorney-client relationship. You are represented by me when we have both signed a retainer...
Richard Sternberg's answer I cannot determine what country, state, county, or other jurisdiction is the source of this question, but you need to review the case file with a lawyer familiar with the facts and law there. Any response you get here is flat-out incompetent.
BTW, Justia is primarily visited by US attorneys, and I'm pretty sure that there is no Permanent Court of Arbitration in any of our 56 state jurisdictions.
H. Scott Aalsberg Esq.'s answer It depends, In general you can only use your international license for 60 days, but many of those are not legal either to use as the ones sold over the internet are fakes.
