I'm getting married in May, and I am also graduating from my MBA in May (I have a F-1 visa). I'm planning on applying for the OPT soon and applying for the green card right after the wedding in May. How does it work if my OPT start date is in June, for example, and I apply for the green card at the... Read more »
First, it doesn’t make sense to apply for an EAD through adjustment right off, since you will have a current EAD. If your OPT EAD comes to within four months of expiring, and your green card has not yet been approved, you can apply for a new green card based on a pending adjustment application at...Read more »

bringing me the paperwork to change the chip info on the dog. This request was made on behalf of the owner who also had 4 pit bulls placed with a rescue during this same incident. The owner, in possession of all my contact info, employment and knew where I lived, never showed, never called or... Read more »
Yes - but not in a good way. The judge will kick your dates back because you're not there, likely hold you in contempt and revoke you on anything outstanding, and you may be charged with additional crimes for absconding. I've helped a good number of people figure out their court date issues and...Read more »
The dog is property. You may have to go to the police station and report that she stole your dog, then see if they issue a warrant. They may tell you they're not interested in helping you, in which case you will need to file a lawsuit for the dog in the state where the property (the dog) is...Read more »
Also can they require the non-custodial parent to travel more than half the distance for their parenting time? Can the custodial parent deny weekday visits saying they can only do visits at a location closer to the custodial parent. Even if this language is not in the court order? The move was also...

The court order contains all of the requirements. Everything else is just the other parent trying to pull a fast one. An order cannot require that a person never moves - but a person moving could, potentially, have other implications. Unfortunately, you will not get specific advice on this...Read more »
A friend of mine is trying to get custody of her son who is being emotionally abused by his father (he has physical custody and they both live in ND). The courts are telling her they won't hear the case unless she has legal representation. She makes too much for legal aid and doesn't have the $5000... Read more »
I plead guilty on a charge because I was told that the record would be sealed after two years of probation. I should have fought it, but it was cheaper and easier to plead than to fight it. I found out later I stay in the system on background checks. My state has a clause that says if I go 5 years... Read more »
North Dakota does not say "five years and we treat it like it never happened." Instead, North Dakota has a period in which you can petition to seal your record. If you received a deferred imposition of sentence (which would seal it after probation) and it was never sealed, then petition the court...Read more »
You have the right to an attorney at public expense if you cannot afford an attorney. You don't, however, have the right to pick your attorney at public expense. Unfortunately, many people end up being unsatisfied with their public defender. But being unsatisfied with your public defender leaves...Read more »
You could check the school's course policy. Schools can impose their own specific conditions, such as attaining a certain grade in a course, etc. If you have an academic advisor, maybe they could help explain your rights. Good luck
Son in a nasty divorce in WA state. Soon to be ex-wife has moved to MT with kids. We live in ND. She will not let us call or talk to our grandchildren and won't allow them to call us. Is there anything we can do?
so you walk into a Subway in the sign on the glass usually states, make it what you want. Well if you try to order a wrap let's triple or quadruple me, they claim that corporate policies do not let you. Wouldn't that be considered false advertisement because now I'm not getting to be able to make... Read more »
With those types of statements, the underlying premise is that the customer's wishes would be fulfilled, within a standard of reasonableness, not necessarily in a literal sense; or in this case, within the reasonable guidelines of their corporate policies. You could consult with an attorney to ask...Read more »
