  • What is the min age requirment for Fiance Visa !

    My fiance is was born 2/6/96 in pakistan and i myself is 25 !! Can i apply for fiance visa as of right now ! ?!!!

    Omar’s Answer

    There is no age restriction for marriage under the immigration laws. However, if you are bringing a minor, under the age of 18, to Texas you must comply with Texas law regarding marriage. In Texas, anyone under the age of 16 requires a court order to approve the marriage. To get the Court to agree, you will definitely need, at the least, signed affidavits from the girls parents.

    Regardless of which state you marry in you must comply with that states laws. I recommend you talk to an attorney near you to see what is needed to get approval for an underage marriage before you consider applying for your minor fiance.

  • Can I be Charged for Medical Svc Not Yet Rendered

    Illinois law/Med. Practice Act. - someone told me that there is a law that says i cannot be charged for medical svc not yet rendered. i was billed the entire procedure up front (laser hair removal) and it doesnt even work

    Omar’s Answer

    A doctor can ask for payment "up front" prior to providing services. It is not illegal. However, it is illegal for a doctor to submit a claim for payment to an insurance company before the service is provided.

    Laser hair removal is probably not covered under any health insurance policy so the doctor is not violating any law.

    Often with plastic surgery or other cosmetic procedures, insurance does not cover these procedures. Many doctors in this area require payment up front.

  • Are adult sites legal

    internet laws

    Omar’s Answer

    Yes. They are.

    However, they are still subject to laws relating to obscenity, access by minors and of course a complete and total restriction against child pornography.

    Many adult sites are "hosted" off shore and therefore not directly subject to U.S. cyber laws and if they are, enforcement of a U.S. law in the middle of China or Russia or some other country may be near impossible.

    Omar’s Answer

    The Illinois Limited Liability Act does not prevent a manager from loaning an LLC he manages money at 0% interest.

    Sec 805 ILCS 180/1‑30 (7) states that an LLC has the authority to:
    Incur liabilities, borrow money for its proper purposes at any rate of interest the limited liability company may determine without regard to the restrictions of any usury law of this State, issue notes, bonds, and other obligations, secure any of its obligations by mortgage or pledge or deed of trust of all or any part of its property, franchises, and income, and make contracts, including contracts of guaranty and suretyship.

    And If I read your submission correctly, you are a Member but also a Manager.

    Under the above 805 ILCS 180/15‑7 states:

    Sec. 15‑7. Member and manager's right to payments and reimbursement.
    (a) A limited liability company shall reimburse a member or manager for payments made and indemnify a member or manager for liabilities incurred by the member or manager in the ordinary course of the business of the company or for the preservation of its business or property.
    (b) A limited liability company shall reimburse a member for an advance to the company beyond the amount of contribution the member agreed to make.
    (c) A payment or advance made by a member that gives rise to an obligation of a limited liability company under subsection (a) or (b) of this Section constitutes a loan to the company upon which interest accrues from the date of the payment or advance.

    NOTE: IF interest is charged it accrues from the date of payment but it does not say that interest is required.

    In short as a Member-Manager you are within the law. If you are a Manager only and are not a listed Member on the Articles of Association filed with the State of Illinois, that is a different matter. There are no laws, per se prohibiting it but there are fiduciary considerations and conflicts of interest that must be accounted for in the written loan docs.

    The loan docs are the key. They should be carefully considered before lending money.

    Talk to an attorney about this to get an understanding of the right types of docs you need signed before loaning money.

    Omar’s Answer

    If your spouse was born to a U.S. Citizen abroad and hi smother registred him with the U.S. Embassy abroad, then he was born a U.S. citizen .

    In Part 8, D, 1 mark "at birth". Leave Part 8, D, 2 blank.

    If in doubt, hire a good immigration attorney. Although applying for citizenship may seem like "simply filling out forms" as I have heard so often, their are nuances and complexities in the process and the law that, unless fully understood can have a significant impact on the success of the petition.

  • Can a creditor's lien on my house stop it from being sold in a short sale?

    I have a buyer for my house, but only as a Short Sale. After a judgement obtained against me last year, the creditor put a lien on the house. They will not recover any money by holding that lien. How can I get the lien removed so the short sale ca...

    Omar’s Answer

    It is possible for the creditor with a lien to stop a short sale if the Lender (bank) requires a warranty deed as part of the sale. You may have to negotiate a deal with the creditor to get a release of the lien prior to the sale. If you can negotiate a quit claim deed with the lender then the lender takes the property "as is" inclusive of the liens.

    Use the wage garnishment as an argument that the creditor is receiving his money that way and that there is no equity in the property.

  • When do people doing adjustment of status get RFEs?

    Hi, I am wondering when people get RFEs (if they do get one) during the AOS process. Is it usually right after the documents are received by USCIS?, before biometrics?, after biometrics? Thanks

    Omar’s Answer

    There is usually a lag between the time when the USCIS receives the documents and send out an RFE. An RFE is sent out only after your file has been assigned to a case officer and that officer has done an initial review of your forms and supporting documents. They follow a check list. If there is an item missing from their checklist; RFE. If there is something on the form or in the supporting docs that is unclear; RFE. If a supporting document is missing; RFE and so on.

    The notice for biometrics comes out separately. It can appear at any time before or after an RFE. Your adjustment file is not complete until all RFEs have been responded to and the biometrics have been submitted and processed.

  • I had someone install an alarm system in my home now this company is trying to sue me for terminating the contract

    My husband lost his job and we had to cut down on alot of expenses that we dont need. We only had thier services for about 4 months.

    Omar’s Answer

    Although you did not ask a question, far be it from me to refrain from answering what you did not ask.

    Check the contract you may have signed with the service providing the alarm monitoring. You may have entered into a contract for a year. That is typical. Check the term. Is it month to month? Is the contract silent as to the length of the contract?

    If you did not sign the contract but the installer did then you are involved in complicated legal issues regarding your ability to be sued.

    Talk to an attorney about your case. Don't ignore it as the plaintiff's will just get a default judgment and you will be liable. Talking to an attorney will open up options for you.

  • Does a loan modification, require a tila statement and 3 day right of recession?

    Does a lone modification, with the original lender, that increases the principle balance and changes other terms including interest rate and length of loan, require a truth in lending statement and 3 right of recession?

    Omar’s Answer

    Based on the loan modifications we have successfully negotiated, we have never received a truth in lending statement. Primarily, I believe, because a modification does not fall within the Truth in Lending Act, as the lender is NOT lending money for the purpose of the modification. They, and you, are renegotiating an existing contract.

    There is no 3 day rescission requirement here. It does not apply.

    Contact an experienced loan modification specialist attorney for help. Remember, loan mods and short sales are primarily banking issues that many attorneys are just not familiar with.

    Omar’s Answer

    Well I can tell you this would not fly in Illinois. Washington law requires a landlord to return a deposit within 14 days of the request. Any deductions must be itemized. (see The Landlord Tenant Act (RCW 59.18.280) )

    As to using your deposit for paying the new tenants rent that is just plain illegal. Washington law requires landlords to hold deposits in separate trust accounts they cannot use your money for the benefit of a third party not privy to your contract (lease).

    Contact an attorney in Billingham and go after him.
