If a US Citizen gets arrested in India what happens? and of bail?
I have no clue what you are asking. If you are asking about the Indian legal system, you need to ask an Indian lawyer. If you are asking what will happen when you tell your family, ask them. If you are asking whether there might be US consequences, I doubt it, other than serving time back in the US under treaty provisions, but I need more details. If you can't phrase the question in a comprehensible fashion, maybe you'd do better arranging a consult with a lawyer.See question

I am in need of a Venezuelan attorney to obtain a copy of a birth certificate (and apostille) in Caracas and forward it to me in the United States. Please advise as to how to proceed. Thank you.
Another source might be . There are no Avvo.com client ratings and professional endorsements, nor are there Martindale-Hubbell ratings, but the US Embassy doesn't offer ratings, either. Another source might be the the Congress of International Legal Fellows, but I havent been active there in years, and I don't know any Venezuelans I can vouch for.See question
You have a fantastic service to the public! A wrongful misdemeanor charge was made for removal of a placard sign. However, the file of the case at the courthouse has numerous photographs of the inside of the defendant's private house, that is made...
It sounds like you are facing a misdemeanor charge and somehow the evidence is already in the court file pretrial. Why not ask your criminal law attorney if he or she can file a motion to seal the file?See question

Your remedies depend on your contract, which you should have reviewed by a competent real estate lawyer with knowledge of TOPA. If time is of the essence and remedies including attorneys fees are provided, you might have some enforceable remedies, but TOPA compliance is quite intentionally tricky and difficult, and getting it wrong is common.See question
Why is it a crime for a UK national to wire transfer all his money from the United States to the UK, because the UK courts will not enforce a default US court order? This UK national makes it clear that if the Americans try to get his money in th...
The stature you have cited is not a criminal statute. Perhaps there are criminal connections from the statute, such as a court in Washington State ordering the US resident to return funds to the US followed by a finding of criminal contempt, but I've never heard of that strategy working other that for child support under URESA. But, AFAIK, fraudulent transfer civil law statutes exist in all states to empower plaintiffs to chase funds that are moved or hidden in anticipation of litigation.
If you move back to the U.K. and don't return, it is unclear how a plaintiff could chase you or your money to England unless some treaty alliows a U.K. court to recognize the US judgment.See question

If you, an American resident or guest, send an embargoed item, particularly of computer technology, around an embargo through a transshipment through a neutral party, I think you have some fairly serious exposure. I would not send anything to North Korea or Iran (or any other embargoed country) without a written legal opinion that it was not a violation of the embargoes. Double that for computer equipment sent to countries developing nuclear technology. Even if your specific plan is legal (and it sounds like it is not), the defense costs to avoid an extended stay at Leavenworth may be prohibitive.See question
I don't know yet
I agree with Mr. Isquith that you aren't giving us much to go on, so it's a wild guess, but Mr. Podesta is licensed counsel in your own state of Georgia, and he knows that Georgia marshalls serve process. Which agency to do that varies across the country, so I'd go with the wild guess of a local counsel. Service could be of a civil suit or anything else, like a domestic order or summons. Also, in some locations, enforcement of judgments is supervised by marshalls, but they'd be unlikely to stalk you.
In my jurisdictions, sheriffs or marshalls aren't police, so such an investigation is less likely.
Why not walk up to them -- slowly, peaceably, and with your hands visible and empty -- and ask them?See question
In a world economy influenced by international terrorism, the desire for privacy has in most cases yielded to the need of responsible nations and institutions to track the sources of terrorist financing. Truly anonymous international transfers will be very difficult. But, if your objective isn't to conceal terrorist financing, there may well a ways to build a financing structure that observers other than the authorities will find inscrutable and you will find convenient. Sit down for an hour with a qualified lawyer and discuss your objectives frankly.See question
Hedge Fund manager established in Singapore. Interested in knowing about incorporating second fund in Delaware and making investments/reporting returns in US.
There is no way to cover this in an on-line forum. As Mr. Harris notes, there are many Federal securities laws that apply almost immediately, and you simply cannot get by without a securities law compliance officer. Though I loved securities law in school, I don't qualify. It's a legitimate specialty, and where you pick that specialist is going to matter, because State securities laws are going to apply. I believe that new funds should manage that team by retaining corporate counsel. Where the fund is international, like yours, a business lawyer with Initernational Law experience will help. There will surely be many blogs and other resources on the Web about hedge funds, there is no way you can manage compliance and registration and licensing without counsel. Good luck.See question
