Family Attorney Advice, Please!?
I Had A Daughter Out Of Wedlock. The Father Is Not Involed Much, I Am Married And My Daughter Only Knows My Husband As A Dad. Paternity Has Not Been Established, So Do I Automaticlly Have Sole Custody Of Her? Or Would I Have To Go To Court? She Was Born In Texas But We Have Been In Utah Since She Was 3 Months Old. I Am Trying To Get Her A Passport. How Can I Prove I Have Sole Custody Of Her?
You're right to consider this before trying for a passport for her because without proper documentation she might get stuck in that other country and not able to return.
If the father has not been paying for her then he should be in jail. You didn't say your husband has adopted her so her father is still her father. Probably the reason the father has not paid for her is because his name is not on her birth certificate. Don't you think your child is worthy of having her father listed on her bith certificate? I would suggest you go to an attorney and ask that this become a court matter and have the dna connection proven. Only then could she be adopted by your husband now and only with the consent of the father. You and the father have custody of her. I would suspect if that father doesn't want her out of the country then she should not go. Have you even asked him? See what happens when you let things go and don't take care of them when you should, things get muddled. You don't have sole custody of her, that's never been proven in a court of law.

Question About Japanese Divorce Law?
Something Doesn'T Sound Right About This. Can Someone Please Give Me A Little Insight?
I Have A Close Friend That Was Married In Japan. She Is From The Us And She Married A Japanese Man Almost 20 Years Ago. They Had 2 Kids Together - 10 And 8 Years Old.
She Now Wants A Divorce. They Went Through Separation Proceedings Already, But They Couldn'T Agree On Who Would Keep The Children.
She Is Telling Me That She Is Stuck In Limbo For The Time Being Because If She Does File For Divorce, She Will Lose All Access To Her Children Because She Is Not Japanese. Her Husband Also Has His Parents Living With Him, So Because Of That, He Would Gain Custody Of The Children Because His Parents Are There To Take Care Of Them. She Basically Has 2 Strikes Against Her Right Off The Bat.
She Says Her Only Recourse Is To Wait Until Her Children Of An Age In Which They Can Possibly Influence With Which Parent They Would Stay. I Don'T Know What That Age Is In Japan, So If Someone Knows That, It Would Be Very Helpful As Well. Apparently, There Is Also No Joint Custody In Japan.
Is There No Court Mediation Available Like In The States To Determine These Things Or Is It That Cut And Dry Over There? Something Just Doesn’T Sound Right About This. She Puts 20 Years Into A Marriage And She Is Just Going To Lose All Access To Her Children Because Her Husband Is A Lying, Controlling And Manipulative Jerk? I Realize Life Isn’T Fair, But Seriously?
I'm sorry that your friend is going through this and I can't give you legal answers but being half and formerly living there, I can tell you that culturally this is normal. My guess is that the Japanese side of the family does not want to lose the children as they fear they will move back to America with the mother. I assume that due to Japanese laws, once divorced, your friend will lose her claim to residency unless she became a citizen so that could cause her to move back home and put the fear in the in-laws. For more legal advice, please see the US Embassy of Japan's page on divorce and children custody. It is greatly advised she has someone who can translate legalese for her.
I cannot verify the accuracy but wikipedia states, "Joint custody of children ends upon divorce. In a divorce by agreement, the husband and wife must determine which parent will have custody of each child. In other types of divorce, custody is determined by the mediator or judge, with a strong preference toward custody by the mother (especially with regard to children born after the divorce)."
I don't know enough divorced w/ children families in Japan but I think it's sole custody only but can have mutual agreement for visits.
Lawyer Fees, $10,000?
Case Is Sexual Assault. Lawyer Charges Us $10G. Is This Really How They Charge Here? I'M Just New In States U Know.
I doubt that's the total fee - its probably just a retainer. You could end up paying a lot more than that. You will really, really want to make sure you know exactly how you will be charged and how that $10k will cover and what it will be used for.
Is My Job In Violation Of Labor Laws?
I Currently Work Third Shift And Just Recently Our Supervisor Has Taken Away Our 15-Minute Break Periods, Citing That Due To Work Performance Issues That This Decision Had To Be Made. He Said That &Quot; He Was Doing Us A Favor&Quot; In Giving Us The Breaks. We Work 10-Hour Shifts And At Times, Are Mandated To Stay Up To 2 Hours After We Are Scheduled To Leave Work. I Was Always Told That If We Work More Than Four Hours On A Shift That We Are To Receive 2 15-Minute Breaks As Well As Our 30-Minute Lunch Break. Has My Employer Violated Any Labor Laws? I Reside And Work In Indiana And Thank You In Advance For Your Help.
Not labor laws by the State or Federal government.
However he may have violated contract law for the type of work done and where it is done or Union terms.
I also work 3'rd shift and can have 8, 10 , or 12 hour shifts +30 mins for meal. Our contract with the client only says we must take 30 mins away from our station for meals. Hence the 10.5 hr shift is only paid 10. No breaks are written into the contract, however common sense allows us to take responsible small breaks to limit fatigue.
BTY per the Dept of Labor breaks are not required as mentioned above. This is a per company / contract issue.

Laws and Regulations on This Topic
Federal law does not require lunch or coffee breaks. However, when employers do offer short breaks (usually lasting about 5 to 20 minutes), federal law considers the breaks as compensable work hours that would be included in the sum of hours worked during the work week and considered in determining if overtime was worked. Unauthorized extensions of authorized work breaks need not be counted as hours worked when the employer has expressly and unambiguously communicated to the employee that the authorized break may only last for a specific length of time, that any extension of the break is contrary to the employer's rules, and any extension of the break will be punished.
Bona fide meal periods (typically lasting at least 30 minutes), serve a different purpose than coffee or snack breaks and, thus, are not work time and are not compensable.
