    Prenuptial agreements are often more about negotiation than the law, however it would be in your best interest to have an attorney review the proposed instrument and fully explain your rights to you; you may be giving up more than just a right to his family's money. California already has measures to protect your fiance's inheritance should you two get married without a prenup so my inclination is that the agreement covers more than just those assets. You can test the waters with your...

    Small claims is for money damages, you won't be able to discover the identity of a Google user through that process. Additionally, Google is very protective of its users' identities and almost always requires a court order to turn over such information. You should contact an attorney if you are seriously considering proceeding with this matter who will be able to advise you about filing a petition for pre-action discovery. Through this petition you can uncover the identity of the poster if...

    Most reputable websites and matching services have procedures in place to remove unauthorized photos as the unfortunate situation you find yourself in is not uncommon. You should start by reviewing the website for information on removing your photo and if nothing is available try contacting the company through their listed contact information. Your rights to the photo and to how it is used will depend on how the picture was obtained. An attorney can assist you in clearly expressing the...

    The Petition for Alien Relative form that needs to be filed to petition citizenship status for your new wife requires a copy of the marriage certificate to be filed as well. If you're going to go through the proper immigration channels to "protect her," and by that I assume you mean protect her from being deported, you'll have to submit all the necessary documentation as well. The above answer is not "legal advice" as specified under any pertinent rules governing the Professional...

  5. Signing a contract with a company that is based out of state

    Contract provisions that dictate where disputes can be handled (forum selection) and under which state's laws (choice of law) are fairly common when dealing with an out-of-state company especially with companies that do business in multiple states. Because they are making deals all over the country it is in their best interest to focus their legal representation in one place to avoid spending potentially large amounts of money litigating all over the country. They can insist that this...

  6. Is it legal in to release an online multiplayer billiard game in which people can bet with real money, and win real money back?

    It is very difficult to answer your question within the context of this forum. As you may know, contests like the one you propose are governed by individual state laws that take varying approaches to games of skill and chance and apply different standards for whether sponsors can charge entry fees and how they can distribute prizes. What might be a legal game of skill in one state will be an illegal game of chance in another. Your best option moving forward is to retain an attorney to analyze...

  9. Can I take someone to Small Claims, as I cannot afford a copyright attorney, whom knocked my copyright product off?

    If you're suing for copyright infringement then no, you can't go through small claims court. While I have heard of at least one case where someone successfully secured a judgment for infringement through small claims I'm sure that case has been appealed and overturned by now and if you're trying to save money the last thing you want to get involved in is an appeal. Federal courts have exclusive jurisdiction over copyright claims. Have you been in contact with the infringing party? Even if...

  10. Can a strip club ban significant others from entering if the boyfriend or girlfriend works at the club?

    Yes, the owner of the club can probably ban you from entering if your significant other works there (or for any number of other reasons). You may have seen signs in different establishments that say "We reserve the right to refuse service to anyone." As long as you are not being kept out on the basis of your race, religion, national origin, or on the basis of your membership to some other protected class, you are not actually being discriminated against and you can be kept from entering. As a...
