Self-employed means that you weren't an employee; you would have had contracts with other people and companies. If they are in breach of contract, you find an attorney and sue them. What is it you would prove with the photos and texts; the terms of your contract or contracts?
I went to the police in December 2021 for being a victim of a sex crime. The arrested him last year and we have yet to get a conviction, he has been in jail for over a year. The legal representative for the government is staying in contact but can we sue for the time that this is taking?
No. Penalties imposed for criminal acts are meant to benefit the public, not private parties such as you. Similarly, if the perpetrator had been promptly prosecuted and acquitted, you would not have had standing to appeal. Your remedy would have been a civil case, if you could have proven money...View More
As mentioned above, three people are on the lease house. I took out a loan so my in-laws could get a home. They now live in that house. However the name on the house is me, my wife and her mother. If someone wanted to sell the home what would happen. How would this be divided? We never had anything... View More
If one of you wanted to sell the home, the proceeds would be divided three ways, equally. As I understand it, you, your wife, and her mother own the property and your mother-in-law, and her husband live in the house. The house could be sold subject to the lease (if all three owners agree), but...View More
Hello I currently live in a Florida and am looking to relocate to Nevada. I work for a university but am 100% remote. The Hr department sent back the response below regarding my request to relocate. ?Not registered to operate in the state of NV. Additionally, there are specific licenses that we... View More
If you move to Nevada you will have to follow Nevada laws, including occupational licensing, and your employer will have to be compliant with Nevada laws including those pertaining to payroll taxes. Using a Florida license, or the other ideas you asked about would probably be regarded as...View More
Theoretically, it could be a criminal assault case (if she threatened to shoot you at the same time she made the threat), or a criminal case for perjury, but I would doubt that the criminal authorities (either in Florida or in the military) would elect to prosecute. If by "a legal case",...View More
The defendant and I are both located in Florida. I filed a small claims court suit seven weeks ago and it was accepted. I paid court fees already. I have received no information since filing. Is this normal? Am I just waiting to get my court date?
You need to get the clerk of court to issue a summons which will set a date and time for a pretrial conference (i.e.: the "court date"). You need to get this served (by the sheriff's department or a process server) on the defendant.
A "lack of prosecution" hearing is for the plaintiff (person suing) to show the judge why the case should not be dismissed, generally because nothing has happened in it for some time. You don't need to show up, and it will be dismissed eventually unless you can be served with...View More
I live in an area that is majority elderly. Elder abuse has become a huge problem and I know several people that have a hard time managing their money. I would like to offer POA services for things like managing bank accounts, paying bills, etc. Am I able to do that without being a lawyer? Am I... View More
A person who has been given a power of attorney by another person is called an "attorney in fact". You don't have to be licensed to practice law, to be an attorney in fact, but be sure you don't engage in the practice of law or perform public accounting, because you have to be...View More
One would have to read the "letter" to be sure, but it appears that someone, perhaps your landlord, sued to evict you. The judge appears to have dismissed the case "with prejudice"; that means that the plaintiff (the person who sued you) is not allowed to sue you again for the same thing.
a friend asked me for a favor to let them use my best buy credit to buy a laptop for their son that is going to college, i reluctantly allowed her to after asking me many times. She was my boss at my job at the time and i felt pressured to do her the favor. We agreed on paying me back a month or... View More
You could sue her in small claims court, but even if you get a judgment, collecting it may be difficult. So, accept what she pays you, but be sure to keep written, signed and dated documentation, including a payment agreement, receipts, etc.
The previous question I asked was intended to apply to Florida not California. The scenario would apply to partial funds from 501(c)3 donors used to purchase a home in Baja California which is Mexico over 25 years ago while the majority was used to purchase from "own" private funds.... View More
Yes, when a non-profit corporation is dissolved, the assets covered by the asset-distribution clause applies to real property such as that in Mexico. It's essentially a matter of federal law, so it doesn't much matter whether the non-profit was incorporated in Florida, California, or elsewhere.
Evidently you, as well as an LLC in which you have an interest, are being sued. If the lawsuit ends up with a judgment against you as well as the LLC, the judgment creditors could levy upon property belonging to either or both judgment debtors, you and the LLC. So, trying to transfer your assets...View More
Assuming that he doesn't have "color of title" (something in writing giving him a claim to the property), he must comply with Florida Statute 95.18 (entitled "Real property actions: adverse possession without color of title").
I was the rear driver. Police report says no damages or injuries. Other driver said he was going to claim his neck hurts because I said " there is no damage" before asking if he is ok. My insurance said I do not need attorney while they investigate, but I feel I should. Please advise
Until you are served with a summons, you don't officially know that "other driver suing". Sit tight and let your insurance company complete its investigation. When and if you are served with process, be sure to notify the insurance company. At that point they will get an attorney...View More
A satisfaction of judgment is something that a judgment creditor might file to indicate that the judgment has been collected and is no longer owed by the judgment debtor (normally the defendant). A writ of garnishment is issued by a court directing a bank or employer to monies belonging to a...View More
I wouldn't worry about revenge, but I would be hesitant to fill out the affidavit insofar as personal data is requested. You indicate it is supposedly from a police department; I would contact the police department independently (not using the contact information you received in the mail) and...View More
And, presumably, you want to know what can be done about it? Whoever was defrauded could sue to void the deed and clear title to the property. Notaries are supposed to keep records of what and when they notarize documents. The plaintiff could depose the notary and the witnesses to see what, if...View More
