  1. Hi, My boyfriend's first wife sued him for not payment child support and alimony for 14 years. He was hit with an amount, plus interest. He told me that if he didn't pay the amount, he would have to serve a 3 month prison sentence. His family paid the amount, less the interest. Because they did not pay the interest, my boyfriend cannot have any property in his name, or else his ex can seize it to pay the unpaid interest. When I told the story to my Turkish friend here in Canada, she said that's not possible, that they will not put a person in prison in Turkey for not paying child support. I don't think my boyfriend would have made up this story, it's not as if he asked me to pay the money or anything and I've known him for 15 years now and we have a child together. So my question is, to the lawyers out there, can a person be made to serve jail time for lack of payment (he had a previous court order to pay his ex the support, but never paid). Thank you.
  2. Hmmm, i feel your dilemma. Question: if he couldnt tell the woman that he was dating you because of the boss (sounds kind of lame), how is it that he can post pics of you on his phone now? Also, turks have a strange relationship with money I find, they dont seem to mind borrowing it from others...

    Tapu in the name of a minor

    Trying again. Is anyone able to venture an answer on whether a minor can be put on a tapu?
  6. My boyfriend and i want to buy property in the name of our son who is 11. The reason we want to transfer the property to him is that we have other children on either side from different mariages. We were told that this is indeed possible, but im not sure i believe the people who informed us since they are real estate agents who would say anything to make a sale. So can the tapu be in the name of a minor? Thanks.

    Also found the following option, which seems even better: http://www.kusadasihavalimaniservis.com/en/

    Just saw now there there are Havas buses that depart from Izmir airport to Selcuk and Kusadasi all day and night for about 30 TL.

    Izmir taxi

    Just to get an idea, approximately what can I expect to pay from Izmir airport to Alsancak by taxi?

    Izmir taxi

    Just checked and the hotels in Izmir are not all that expensive, and some of them have airport shuttles (not sure about that time of the morning though), so I think it will be better for me to take a taxi to a hotel in Alsancak, spend the night, visit Izmir the next day, and then just take a regular bus to Kusadasi the following day. Thank you again.

    Take a taxi to Selcuk rather than Izmir upon arrival you mean? Thank you all for all of your information, it's very helpful.

    Izmir taxi

    Because I will be arriving at some ungodly time (between 12:30 and 1:30 am.) and I don't want to disturb the people with whom I'm going to be staying, I thought it would be better to spend the night in Izmir and depart for Kusadasi by bus the following day. Are there buses that go to Kusadasi at that hour of the morning, and then taxis to get to a hotel in Kusadasi?

    Izmir taxi

    Thank you Ken. So Basmane is near Alsancak? Also, should i be negotiating price before getting into taxi or is it fixed to a hotel in the Alsancak area? Or is it as per meter?

    Izmir taxi

    Hi. I will be arriving at 12:30 am at Izmir airport from Athens. Will there be taxis at that time to get to hotel, and if so will the driver try to take me around in circles to charge me more? It has happened to me in Istanbul and Rome already so if thats the case, i'd like to be prepared. Also, is the bus to Kusadasi near Alcansak and does it leave several times a day? Thanks.
