EMERGENCY: my mother got her passport confiscated in London but she can’t come back to the United States. Her passport was reported lost/stolen apparently and they let her in but she won’t be able to come back because they took her passport. The us consulate/embassy is closed on the weekends and I suspect there would be long wait times. What do I need to do to get her back into the US?

Please any advice would help, this is a serious matter and any sly jokes/remarks would be really not helpful

I found out on Oct 7 that an in person “summit” was planned my job. I signed up for back up care so that I could send my LO there while I went to the meetings. That hasn’t panned out and I’ve found out that others got notified last minute that the back up care couldn’t be honored. My flight is tomorrow. I’m stressing about what to do in this situation. Additionally, my husband’s probation period at his new job isn’t over so he can’t take off and we don’t have any family close to help out.

Hey Fish,

Would greatly appreciate any answers to the below.

1) what are the implications of a consulting deliverable being a work made for hire?

2) will a term stating that the deliverable is not a work made for hire (despite being custom made for the customer) be enforceable?

3) if a deliverable is a work made for hire, can you have terms that limit what the customer can do with it? (Does the fact that they own it mean that you can't impose any limits on what they can do with it?)

TY!
