Frequently Asked Questions

Warning: Answers to Frequently Asked Questions must necessarily apply to general situations and be simplifications in order to be short enough to be useful as FAQs. They also should be long enough to provide realistic and useful information. These FAQs are a compromise that cannot cover all fact situations, exceptions or variations, and so they should not be considered legal advice. Books and large sections of books by many authors have been devoted to these topics, and here we attempt to provide general guidance on the topics. Please contact one of our attorneys for legal advice.
