Filled but it takes weeks, do I still get paid after performing work while my business wasn't being in good standing?

However, the specific procedures and requirements for payment may depend on the terms of your contract with the client and any applicable state or local... Read more »

After looking for lenders for my loan. I was told by the finance rep to put down 2k to cover the tax and other fees at least due to the amount of the loan. At that moment, it wasn’t my intention to do so but I felt pressure to do it. Can I use any consumer law on this case?
answered on Feb 10, 2023
The facts as presented in the question unfortunately are unclear as to what basis there would be for a consumer law claim.
Is there a claim of fraud or deceptive business practices? Just because you intended to do one thing and ended up doing another - does not by itself indicate fraud.... Read more »
Is it legal for one person to be agent for 20-40 corporations under their agent address and then for these same companies to all have their headquarter address listed as the same address for all of them even though the companies aren't related to each other in anyway?

You are asking for an opinion, and attorneys only provide opinions to their clients after knowing sufficient facts to render an opinion.
I can point you to the VCC's requirements for registered agents.

You can do a letter or a lawsuit. You know your former business partner better than an attorney, so if you think the partner would be motivated o resolve if sent a letter then that's the way to go. If you think the partner would ignore the letter, then litigation is the way to go. I'm... Read more »

A Virginia attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for two weeks. I'm sorry about your accident. It could depend on the carrier's practices and the scope of coverage on your policy. Good luck.

Your recourse is to file a breach of contract lawsuit against the dealership. It will be your burden of proof to persuade the Judge that your claims are proven by a preponderance of the evidence.

answered on Oct 28, 2020
I don't think 4 months is really enforceable, but it really depends on the language in the contract and how it's spelled out and if there are any details about damages. You may want to have an attorney review that provision for you. Good luck.
Wanted to know because I'm looking to open a partnership or llc. No financial advice will be given to partners or members. One person would do all the transactions on behalf of company. This is for investment purposes.
answered on Oct 8, 2020
If the transactions are by the Managing Member or General Partner for and only on behalf of the company in only its private securities account and the company is not in the business of just buying and selling securities as a Broker or Dealer then in my opinion no registration would be required.

I suggest you talk to a lawyer and show the documents to determine the relationship of the agent (assuming you mean registered agent) with members and the LLC.
