Bruce Alexander Minnick's answer It sounds to me like you are making up problems for yourself. Concentrate on paying Uncle Sam and Illinois whatever income taxes owed and forget about the other 49 states. If there ever is a problem they will contact you.
Bruce Alexander Minnick's answer In most states the owner of the car is responsible for all taxes owed on it; however, that information is not as readily available as it is in other situations--like real estate taxes and IRS liens on real property. The general rule is that taxes go along with the items bought, which means you, as the buyer, are now liable to the taxing authority for the back taxes owed by the seller. However, you will have a cause of action against the seller when you pay his taxes.
Bruce Alexander Minnick's answer I am guessing that you and your spouse did not have a lawyer to advise you when selling your small business to a lawyer and his friend; am I right? If so, then take the money you saved by not hiring a lawyer when you should have, add several more thousands of dollars to it and then go hire a lawyer to fix the problems you and your spouse created.
If not, then call your lawyer and get him involved immediately--before you lose everything you worked hard for.
Bruce Alexander Minnick's answer It depends on the terms expressed in your written lease. Most apartment buildings provide pest control, while most stand-alone homes, townhomes and duplexes do not. Read your lease.
Bruce Alexander Minnick's answer If you are seeking cheap legal representation you will not find any here on this blog. Perhaps there are some local lawyers willing to help you defend yourself for a flat fee? Shop around using the Find a Lawyer tab here on Justia.
Bruce Alexander Minnick's answer The answer to your question depends on the definition of "animal cruelty" under Oklahoma statutory law. If you are still interested in learning whether the vet's treatment is covered, hire a lawyer who specializes in animal law in Oklahoma.
Bruce Alexander Minnick's answer Credit card companies are not supposed to do this; however, there is very little you can do about it, other than to pay off the credit card they are calling about. You can also report them to the federal agency that regulates credit card companies.
If the landlord is trying to increase your rent before the end of the term set forth in the written lease, that will suffice as a valid reason for you to leave the place prior to the end of the lease. Find a better place to live.
Bruce Alexander Minnick's answer It never ceases to amaze me how many educated people still think the old school-yard rule of "finders-keepers" is some sort of legal justification for keeping something valuable that does not belong to them. Unless you want your employment record sullied more than it is now, and unless you enjoy being sued over peanuts--and having to hire a lawyer to defend you, you should give the money back immediately.
Bruce Alexander Minnick's answer If the ward (your friend) is under the age of majority in Georgia they will have to hire a lawyer--or have a friend hire a lawyer--to investigate all the facts and possibly move against the guardian. If the ward is a legal adult, they can contest the guardianship themselves--by asking the judge to dismiss the guardian.
Bruce Alexander Minnick's answer Since you did not mention a non-complete clause in the employment contract, I will assume that issue is no concern. Accordingly, unless you have received some valuable benefit(s) from the first company (such as a signing bonus, special training, valuable company equipment, laptop, etc.), there should be no legal reason for the company to move against you if you renege before actually beginning work.
