How can I grant the temporary guardianship of my child to a family member?
If you can afford it I suggest hiring a family law attorney. If not, you need to do some research on how to write a guardianship document. You want to include control over health, the ability to obtain health insurance, monthly payment from bio parent to guardian if any.The library has good books on how to do this and how to bring it to court. I would trust this method over an online source.
How can I give blood to a family member?
First, you have to have a compatible blood type. I could give blood to pretty much any family member because I have O-negative blood (so does my son).Second, you have to set up a directed donation. A directed donation is where the donated blood is for a specific recipient. This takes time to set up and is really no better or safer than an anonymous donation. In the case of emergency, it would not be an option. My son needed a transfusion and I (jokingly) suggested that he could have as much of my blood as he needed because we have the same blood type. The doctor got all stuffy and explained that it wouldn’t work because he needed the blood now and doing a directed donation would take days.Just for informational purposes, there is also the autologous donation, which is where you donate blood for yourself. For some people who have rare blood types or religious restrictions, this is an option. Usually, a person will bank their blood prior to a procedure that carries the risk of blood loss.I recommend that you do what I have done: Just go donate blood at your local blood bank regularly and be satisfied with the knowledge that you are giving someone the same gift that your family member received.Autologous & Directed Blood Donations
How much equity should I give my advisory board members?
There are no hard and fast rules about assigning advisor equity, but there are some guidelines that show an average range of 0.2% to 1%.When assessing how much equity to allocate to an advisor consider two primary questions.First, evaluate the advisor’s experience. It’s helpful to consider whether they have first, second or third tier experience. Think about it this way: a first tier advisor has an established track record of successfully launching startups, a second tier advisor has a decent amount of experience in the advisory role, but they’re still building their portfolio, a third tier advisor is one who is fairly new to your industry or the role.Second, think about which stage you’re in: Pre-launch, Seed, Series A or Series B.Also, keep in mind vesting and cliff periods to ensure that your advisor doesn’t unfairly benefit in the event of an early exit. Vesting periods are typically four years, with rights accruing only after one year. If your advisor departs within the first year and your agreement doesn’t specify a vesting cliff, s/he will potentially reap the financial benefits without delivering the value promised to facilitate your company’s growth.If you need help figuring out how much equity to give your advisor or need an advisor agreement drafted by an experienced startup attorney, feel free to check out LawTrades.

What is it like to be part of a royal family?
I can't speak for myself, obviously, but I went to a school in Brunei that a lot of Brunei royalty also attended. I was classmates with the Sultan of Brunei's nephew (I'll call him "R") as well as a bunch of other relatives, ie the sultan's cousins' kids etc., and schoolmates with his daughter (or as we called her, Princess). Until real royalty answers this question, I'll try to prsome insights.In summary, lots of perks for a child and lots of friends because of said perks.My guess:As a kid, it's pretty darn fun.He had a bodyguard who would always hang around at school waiting for / watching him. So while we were in class, the bodyguard would just pace outside the classroom. His driver drove in a humongous 4WD and you'd see R behind the wheel in the school's parking lot (keep in mind that we were 12yo back then).He could afford to be naughty and pesky, and get away with it because teachers did not want to piss off royalty. We'd cut classes together and the plebeians such as myself would be sent to the headmaster's office. Sad.Everyone wants to be friends with royalty.Royalty throw the best parties and we'd clamor for a birthday invitation. It was kinda like the TV show, Sweet 16 -- Brunei style. The most in-demand (local) pop bands would be invited. At the time, it was KRU and Fauziah Latiff (I have her autograph on a napkin!). There was a new cellphone in everyone's goodie bag.I was invited to a Whitney Houston concert (7th row from the stage!) and went to R's house for "pre-game." I remember being in awe that his many cats had a customized cat house with inbuilt air conditioners to keep them cool from the hot climate. Rows of cars parked in the massive garage. So many, too many toys. I remember sitting at his dining table eating longans. Of course, his bodyguard would be peeling them and feeding him. I had to peel my own longans. Perhaps these were just perks for royalty not directly and immediately related to the Sultan, though. I don't have many stories to tell about the princess per se, but I remember that the princess would have a "flavor of the month" best friend and would send an invitation card to said flavor inviting her to the palace. After she got bored, the invites would stop. My best friend in middle school was picked and she visited the palace a number of times, unfortunately, I don't remember her stories anymore. So yeah, tons of friends as a royalty kid. While it may be a great feeling to have so many friends as a kid, once you recognize that these kids want to be your friends mainly because of the prestige that comes with hanging out with royalty, it must feel really tiresome and perhaps, lonely.
How do you ask someone (a family member) to move out of your house?
Depends on the situation.If they live there because you let them move-in for financial or emotional reasons, you simply let them know that it is time they start looking for their own place because of your families needs.If it is a member of your family (mother, Father, Child, Sibling) THAT depends on who YOU are in the Family!If you are one of the children in the family… regardless of your age…unless you OWN the home yourself- you have ZERO right to ask or tell people what to do, say etc.. in the household. That is your Parents or the Home-owners choice- not yours. Drop it, focus on what YOU say and do, and stop trying to control others.If you are 18 or older and do not like the conditions- time for you to move out!IF you are the Homeowner: whoever it is- as long as they are not a minor, you simply tell them WHY it is time for them to find their own place- and, if you are a decent person- help them do whatever it takes to make it happen.
How do I properly give a handgun to a family member that lives in another state?
First check:Can the family member legally own or possess a firearm?Is the transfer legal in the receiving state without going through an FFL?Is the transfer legal without going through an FFL in your state?If the answer to all three questions is yes, you can simply have him visit you and gift the gun to him in your state or you can visit him and gift the gun to him in his state. If you opt for either of these, check the laws on transporting the gun through all intervening states.It is not usually necessary to go through an FFL to gift a gun to a person who has a legal right to own one (though check state laws to make sure). It is always necessary to go through an FFL to legally ship a gun to another person. Of course, you can always send him the gun via UPS, FedEx without telling the shipping company what it is. Notice, I said you can, not that you should. While people do this all the time, it is a federal crime and I definitely do not recommend it.
