Legal Answers
176 Questions Answered
Q. there's a transcript for my 1st tax return. 2nd is amended and there's no transcript yet. Will immigration accept both?
A: Usually, for immigration purposes a regular tax return is sufficient unless there is a specific Request for Further Evidence by the Service requesting the tax transcript for that particular year or years.
Q. School principal is confiscating cell phones and keeping them for an unreasonable amount of time: is it constitutional?
A: Yes. Limiting access to mobile telephones for school students by the school Administration is completely Constitutional. The school implements its rules and oversees education , social and safety parameters of that educational institution. The school may and should limit any child' s access to a mobile phone that may be used improperly thus interrupting the educational process (serving the web, accessing adult materials etc.) If a single parent signs up a child to the educational institution the parent is advised on the school policies. Thus, based on public policy, educational needs, and children safety many schools limit or forbid cell phone use by its students. If any parent feels that the cell phones are valued over $1000 they have a choice not to purchase them or pay for any financially onerous monthly plans.
Q. I am a co-sponsor to my sister’s husban, can I still be a point of contact for a person that is seeking refuge status ?
A: If you are not a licensed attorney or recognized gala representative in my opinion you may not be "a point od contact" to receive communication or handle an asylum case for anyone. That asylum applicant must either handle that case herself or select a licensed counsel of record.
