Bismillah, 

Asalamu Alaykom, 

If one needs to expose their private parts to a doctor for necessary medical reasons then it is permissible. Of course one should only show the part which is absolutely necessary and not more than is needed. One should also visit the doctor of the same gender. 

Some ulema also mention for the doctor to look at the private parts via a mirror rather than directly.

May Allah grant you success

Although the parents have divorced, and the children might not be living with the father, or maybe not even in contact with the father, but as long as the father is sane and alive, he is still the daughter's guardian and wali amr. Of course, if drug addiction impedes him from rational conduct, or he refuses to give consent on baseless grounds, then the case would be different. 

And Allah knows best.

Thank you for your question. While the wisdom is not known with certainty, some have opined that it is a symbol that the female path to God is one of chastity and so the donning of full hijab during prayer to a God who sees the female in all her states is a symbol of that path. 

May you always be successful

Thank you for your question. As long as the marriage contract was pronounced correctly with all of its conditions and the divorce was also performed correctly the marriage is valid even if this was not the most ethical path.

May you always be successful.

It is not correct to claim that every witness of woman is half of the witness of a man.

In many cases, the witness of a woman is equal to a man especially in family matters and matrimonial issues and women issues.

In financial disputes and challenges, woman needs another woman to be with her to stand against the challenge. Man can bear the heavy burden of such challenge alone.

Their permission is not needed in this case.
However, it behoves a Muslim to be respectful towards the parents. So try to get them on board if possible.

Provided that these socks (1) Won't attract the attention of Non-mahram and (2) Do not qualify as Zinah (adornment), they CAN be considered as proper cover for the feet. Otherwise wearing them is in contrast with the meaning and the purpose of Hijab.

Bismillah,

Asalamu Alaykom,

You should marry the spouse who is most religiously compatible with you.
 

Not wearing hijab openly is an act of fisq and is a sin. One must remember that such a woman will raise their future kids if Allah blesses them. If a young girl was to see her mother not wearing hijab or dressed in ways which are not proper, she may imitate this. 
 

The same applies for a woman in choosing a man. Does she want a man who doesn't pray and who may do sins in front of her kids? 
 

May Allah grant you success

It is not allowed for any Muslim female to wear any type or any degree of makeup in front of non Mahram men . If your employers force you to put red lipstick or any type of make up in front of men, then you must avoid that even if you have to leave the job if they insist on forcing you to do that, because it is against the teachings of Quran (Tell the believing women to lower their gaze and protect themselves (from sinful sexual acts) and not to show off their adornment except what is apparent .(Sura 24, Verse 31).
