Q. Can I travel or live in USA with my 4 registered wives?
A: 8 U.S.C. § 1182(a)(10)(A) relates to the inadmissibility of polygamists to the United States. Under this section of the U.S. Immigration and Nationality Act, any alien who practices or is likely to practice polygamy (having more than one spouse at the same time) is inadmissible. This means that if a person's lifestyle or actions suggest that they are practicing or likely to practice polygamy, they may be denied entry or residency in the United States.

This law reflects the U.S. legal position on polygamy, which is generally prohibited and not recognized within the country. For someone in a polygamous relationship, this could significantly impact their ability to immigrate or even visit the U.S.

Given the complexities of your situation, particularly with multiple spouses, it would be prudent to seek detailed legal advice. An immigration attorney can provide clarity on how this law might apply in your case and explore any possible avenues for you and your family members to travel to or reside in the U.S., considering the constraints of U.S. immigration law.

Q. We purchased a home/ primary residence in June of this year. One of our neighbors former local PD shared that our home
A: Under California law, sellers are required to disclose to potential buyers any known material facts that could affect the value or desirability of the property. This includes a history of drug manufacturing on the property, as it can pose health hazards and potentially impact the property's value.

If a butane honey oil lab was operated in the home, and this was known to the seller or their agent, it should have been disclosed to you prior to the purchase. The fact that there was a significant incident involving the police and fire department suggests that this was a known issue.

Your recourse in this situation would involve potentially filing a legal claim against the seller for failing to disclose this information. The success of such a claim would depend on proving that the seller knew about the lab and its associated risks, and that they failed to disclose this information to you.

It's advisable to gather as much information as possible about the incident and the property's history. You may also want to have the property professionally inspected for any residual contamination or damage related to the lab operation.

Given the complexity of real estate disclosure laws and the potential health risks involved, consulting with an attorney experienced in real estate law can provide guidance on the best course of action. They can help you understand your legal rights and options for seeking recourse.

Q. Hello so I bought a car from a dealership and they didn’t provide me plates the next day i was pulled over and arrested
A: In California, when purchasing a car from a dealership, it's the dealer's responsibility to provide temporary registration and license plates or a temporary operating permit if the permanent plates are not immediately available. If you were arrested for not having plates shortly after purchasing the car, this suggests a failure on the dealership's part to comply with these requirements.

Your first step should be to contact the dealership and explain the situation. They should provide you with the necessary documentation to rectify the issue. If the dealership is uncooperative, you might need to escalate the matter by filing a complaint with the California Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) or seeking legal advice.

Regarding the arrest, it's important to address any legal charges you're facing. You may need to provide evidence that you recently purchased the vehicle and were awaiting plates from the dealer. This can be used in your defense to explain the lack of plates.

Since this situation involves potential legal consequences and complexities with the dealership, consulting with an attorney can be beneficial. An attorney can help you navigate the legal aspects, represent you in any necessary proceedings, and provide guidance on how to deal with the dealership and any regulatory bodies involved.
