Q: 

Domestic Violence

A: Dear Sheila, I certainly understand your concern, but the police are correct.  Unless there is some law in your community that is different from most laws around the country, there is nothing they can do unless the victim presses charges.  The unfortunate thing is, these women are so intimidated that they won"t do that.  He sounds as though he has done a pretty good job of controlling and manipulating the neighborhood as well as his own family. This woman is totally controlled and she has children with no way to support them if she leaves.  He has probably convinced her that she is worthless, couldn"t take care of herself without him and she is scared to death of what he will do.  Most of these women don"t realize there is help out...


Q: 

Step parent adoption

A: The information about his criminal past and the length of time since he has visited should help move the court towards favoring an adoption. But you would still have to overcome his objects and any proof he brings to the court of his "redemption" You should include in your will your wishes for custody to go to your husband. No paternity doesn"t need to be legally established to move forward with the adoption, the burden to establish paternity would be on his side as part of preventing the adoption.   Yes, you need an attorney, he/she can advise you if you are legally required to notify him of the pending adoption if he has not signed up with a punitive father registry, some listed here - http://adoption.about.com/cs/adoptionrights/a/putative_list.htm  ...


Q: 

Adoption when biological fathe...

A: My husband and I are going through this as well. I have a 6year old son to a previous relationship and we have no contact with the biological father. From what we''ve been able to glean you need to be legally married for 2 years before you can adopt, however in the meantime, your partner just needs to state in her will that if anything happens to her her child is to stay with you as the primary carer otherwise the child will automatically go to her parents as the next of kin. As for the adoption process, from what we''ve found out it should be a fairly straightforward and simple matter as the biological father is not on the birth certificate and so you therefore don''t need his permission. Just double check all this a with a family lawyer or the registry of births,...


Q: 

Step-daughters ''donor'' now wan...

A: I have never been in this situation so I cant really comment but the first thing I would do is update your security on facebook and block this idiot out so he cant see anything.  If you change your setting to "friends only" then he shouldnt be able to see pics etc through mutual friends either.  Good luck I brought a child into my marriage and hubby is her dad no doubt! She''s now 13 and doesn''t care one iota about that drop kick that tried to do us both in when I was pregnant with her! Placing the pictures on face book was a mistake and has open up a can of worms.................... I''m not sure what country your in but perhaps you could try abandonment? That he has no physical contact with her and that his intrustion into her life will cause an emotional upset and...


Q: 

Diet Pills..?

A: DO NOT TAKE DIET PILLS! They are dangerous!! Last year I be visiting my parents and took diet pills (Leptopril -does not contain ephedra) on top on my exercise routine and average diet. I was 26 at the time, 5''11, 180 lbs. By week three I be sick. I had diarrhea, dry heave, dizziness, headaches, and a nonspecific feeling of human being sick. I thought I had caught the flu or something. I have lost 13 lbs in 4 days. One morning I told my mom I didn''t touch good. My reverie kept blacking out and I felt (for insufficiency of a better way to enunciate it) stoned. Later that afternoon I was walking from the bathroom to my bedroom (a 5 foot walk) and I passed out. I be rushed to the hospital emergency where they did a bunch of test on me. My pulse was up to 120, My blood pressure be 150/40,...


Q: 

Finding lost adopted siblings ...

A: If all else fails, you could always contact channel 7''s Find My Family programme and get them to help.  They have a private detective who does it all, though in exchange for ''fees'', they are going to want to air the story on television.  DA if your friend goes to Family & Community Services and ask for a booklet called "Adoptees & Birthparents Guide to Searching" it has all the information in it, to what they have to do. There is also a registar they can go to //www.iwasadopted.com/?gclid=COyNjZTUyZkCFc0vpAodM2D_aQ If they know dates and hospital that the adoption took place they can also apply for certificates from NSW ( or from whatever state) Registery of Births, deaths & Marriages. Not sure...


Q: 

I heard ACSM has recently issued a new edition of its exercise guidelines. Were any changes made regarding risk-factor assessment?

A:  A.It can be difficult to keep up with the latest guidelines and standards. This is particularly true this year, which has seen new USDA Food Guidelines in January, a revised Food Pyramid in May and, most recently, the release of the 7th edition of ACSM’s Guidelines for Exercise Testing and Prescription. The good news is that the ACSM risk factors have been minimally revised. For your reference, here is a summary of what has and has not changed for the 2006 edition. Positive Risk Factors 1. Family History Myocardial infarction (heart attack), coronary revascularization (heart bypass or angioplasty) or sudden death (attributed to a stroke or cardiovascular disease) before 55 years of age in men considered immediate family (father, brother, son) or before 65 in...
