Legal Answers
Q. Can I remarry if I obtained greencard thru ex wife
A: There is no such thing as a "five year rule" to marry another person as you wish. However, you need to naturalize to become a USC in order to petition for your foreign national spouse, provided you marry that person.
Q. Is the smell of marijuana probable cause to search a vehicle in Illinois?
A: Yes. Although the State of Illinois legalized personal use of marijuana, however, its use while driving is still prohibited and may result in a charge of driving under the influence (same as DUI). Therefore, a smell of marijuana from the vehicle creates a legitimate probable cause to investigate and even search a vehicle without a warrant.
Q. What are the implications of starting a cannabis delivery service in Illinois?
A: Delving into commercial sales of marijuana in Illinois is an extremely complex undertaking that has many nuances. You may begin with contacting the State of Illinois respective agencies for more information.
