Hector E. Quiroga's answer We recommend that you speak with your school’s DSO. Generally under the circumstances you will want to go through the proper channels so you do not jeopardize your ability to reenter the US.

Timur Akpinar's answer Lawsuits are often won or lost on opinions, despite the fact that it can result in outcomes that are not always fair. The coach could present these facts to a Texas employment attorney to discuss if he has legal remedies worth pursuing.
Benton R Patterson III's answer An attorney would need to know more about the program to advise on what type of business structure to use. There are many factors to consider when forming a business. It would be best to have a lawyer review a contract with a school district.
Grant St Julian III's answer You cannot represent your child in a legal proceeding before a Court unless you are a licensed attorney. If this is a school situation and proceeding, however, you would have to research the rules and regulations of that school district to see what a parent can and cannot do in such proceeding.

Tammy Lyn Wincott's answer You would submit anything that truly notates your address. When submitting forms you should only put an address if it is a mailing address in the appropriate section.
