Yes, sorry.. as much as English is supposedly my native language, I am
not good at using it.

I do not expect people to have to get lawyers, but the level of
questions and doubt shown in the questions and comments could not be
answered on a list of non-lawyers (or even on a list of lawyers).
These sort of questions usually end up as this one, everyone
frustrated because they can't have a definitive answer and no one
agrees on what is the best course..

Sorry for adding to the confusion. I will try to make it better by
dropping out as I am not helping.
