How can we settle this without seeking an attorney, or with an attorney. But I want them to pay me and have my name removed from the properties list. We started a business together. I want out. What would be the best process to do?
Depends on how the properties are held. If the properties are purchased with a business entity, you may need to dissolve the business and liquidate assets. If the properties are just held jointly, then you may need to file an action to partition (sell) the properties. You can certainly try to reach...View More
You can hire someone to perform a background check and skip trace for assets if you have a judgment. In Tennessee a judgement is good for ten years and can be renewed by motion. If you discover assets, you can garnish wages, levy accounts, and personal property.
Depends on the debt. Are they personally obligated? Is the business just in debt? Or does it have a positive fair market value? Typically, without an operating agreement, when a member quits the LLC pays fair market under TCA 48-249-505. But there are other considerations as well. Consult counsel...View More

You can enforce court orders through contempt petitions. You can seek to modify orders through motions for modification. Both can be tricky to navigate without counsel. Maybe check with legal aid to see if you qualify for help if you can't afford a lawyer.
A buyer of an occupied property typically purchases subject to the lease. Which means you need to honor the lease terms. However, in some leases, there is a termination on sale clause, which also means the lease terminates when the property is sold. Other times, certain conditions can be negotiated...View More

In Tennessee you would file a petition with the chancery court in the appropriate county and serve notice on any interested party.

Depending on the amount owed, this would probably be a small claim in general sessions court. There are civil warrants available online that you can fill out and file with the clerk's office at the county courthouse. A clerk can also walk you through how to complete the paperwork. Although,...View More
Maybe. Police may enter a home under several exceptions to needing a warrant - two that may apply here are the exigent circumstances exception (searching for a suspect) or the community care taking exception (such as a welfare check).
There's not so much a list but various items you may want to look at - for example, codes and zoning. Make sure where you open up shop, you are permitted to operate. Then you'd want to check the environmental laws on disposal of tires and fluids. And then other statutes like the consumer...View More
In Tennessee there are multiple levels of carry allowed for a handgun, but they all seem to hinge on the statement that "intent to go armed" makes the possession illegal. If I carry my handgun for self-defense, then surely my intent is to go armed. This limitation makes no sense to a... View More

However, there are exceptions to this rule such as...View More

Sounds like you may have all sorts of claims against the contractor. But more information would be needed to make a proper assessment. Contact an attorney to review the facts and issues to make a determination of your options.
(Please don't tell me I need to hire a lawyer). This is for a silly debtors examination that is 4 counties and 100 miles away and I have already submitted written answers. I can't imagine they will "chase" me down over this in another county? What typically happens in a case like this?
