You should sit down and write down those areas and items which you feel need to be discussed and reduced to writing. Such as cleaning the kitchen after meals. Vacuuming the living areas. Tidiness. Use of the washing machine and/or dryer. How utilities will be divided. Overnight guests and company. There's no need to alert the authorities about what you do with your property by allowing one person to live in the property with you. Thanks for asking your Q! I enjoyed answering it!

Most motels in the US will let you check in at 18. Hotels may insist upon you being 21, especially if they have mini-bars (alcohol) in the rooms. As long as your ID is valid, its origin is unimportant. And a credit card is the preferred method of reserving a room.

Most motels and hotels require you to be 21 years old. This is due to liability, and they don't want underage drinking in their rooms. There are motels and hotels that allow you to book a room at 18, but sometimes that isn't all year around. During prom time and the busy summer, they often bump up the age to 21. Not all motels/hotels from the same corporation have the same rules, so check each one individually. Here is a list of motels/hotels from the UCSB website: http://www.admissions.ucsb.edu/LocalLodg... I believe the Motel 6 in Goleta has allowed 18 year olds. Yes, you need government ID and a credit card with enough credit available for the total cost, plus tax, plus they usually put a hold on a bit more in case of damage, services, etc. When you call or email about minimum check in age, be sure to get the person's name that states 18.. Good luck!

You must be 21 years old to reserve/rent a hotel room in the US. You must present a current, government-issued ID, a driver's license or a passport, and a current, valid credit card at check-in. You'll need to have someone with you who is legal age.

All depends on where you live. Generally you should be free to rent your room. Things to check would include contacting your city or county zoning department to see if there are any restrictions. Also many states have a state sales tax on rental payments. Check your respective state Department of Revenue to see if you need to register for sales tax. Aside from these considerations you are free to rent your space.

Yehowah Originally Answered: Can you do some kind of a like, "rent to own" with adoption?
OK. I take personal exception to this concept. If you got pregnant, you dont get a free trial run. Why with adoption? My brother and I were adopted. I am older. When he was about a year old, the doctor asked my parents if they knew there was rickets (vitamine c shortage=bowed legs) in his past. My mom mentioned this to the adoption people. To quote, the response was: "Oh, we are sorry, Just bring him back and we will give you another one instead." Now lets look at your statement. You want WHAT? A trial run? Maybe you should consider giving the poor child/baby the chance to run you through your paces before it accepts you as parents. Have you any concept or thought for the fact that you would be adopting a HUMAN BEING who has feelings? I will stop now, lest I say something too insulting.

I don't think you and your wife really really want to adopt. If you did then you wouldn't be thinking whether there was some sort of trial scheme available to you. Please don't get involved in adoption unless you are both 100% behind the idea. The disruption that an adopted child faces is immense, without it being made worse by someone's lack of commitment to it. It would show, your adopted child would be able to tell. I think it's fair to say that a lot of adopted children expect the rug to be pulled from under their feet at any given moment and are therefore hyperalert to anything at all that might signal that this is going to happen, which they can't help- how could they? It's already happened at least once. You can't really view fostering as a solution to this either- you wouldn't know how long a child would be with you, what might start out as days or weeks could turn into weeks or months depending on the needs of that child. Would you be able to say that you would no longer be able to care for that child because for you, for whatever reason, the length of time they were with you had become too long? I think you should put aside any plans for adoption you have until you want to take a child on a permanent and forever basis.
