The common way is to set up a limited liability or a corporation and to maintain the legal requirement of that entity so that the corporate structure cannot be "pierced." Here is the IRS's guide on LLCs, which I see most often with startups:...View More
I have that order and a misdemeanor assault by pointing a gun warrant that I was served and released on a $5000 unsecured bond. I have court tomorrow for the civil summons order. Will I be locked up in jail again?
I don't think you've provided enough information for a lawyer to give an answer with confidence. But, a summons in a civil case does not impose criminal penalties. However, once the civil court enters an order in the civil case (e.g., a restraining order on not contacting a person), it...View More
The answer is yes, but a court would need to order this to happen. A factor that can weigh greatly in the grandparents' favor is if they have been acting as their grandchild's parents prior to seeking custody.

The fact that his visa expired does not affect his ability to enter into a legally binding contract or to assert certain rights (for example, under the Fair Labor Standards Act). The lease is a contract that he can enter into.
However, he should contact an immigration lawyer immediately to...View More
I think you are probably more interested in the tort, "alienation of affection." My understanding is that only Mississippi and North Carolina still recognize this tort, although North Carolina has up to 200 cases a year based on it.

he will not leave. In april will this tenancy go to month/month. His dog extensively damaged the wood floor $1800.00 estimate to replace/repair. Can I increase the rent & chg the terms on 3/31 when lease expires...Can I force entry to repair the floors.
Given the facts as you described them, I would highly recommend getting a court order first. A lawyer could also file an emergency motion to enter to repair the floors. But in this situation, you should get a lawyer and go to court.

The person never actually did anything to the victim but authorities were called and the victim lied and said they hit them and vandalized their car. The victim then got a protection order afterwards. There is no other history of the person being involved with authorities except for mental health... View More
The victim does not need to be in court at the arraignment. If the judge releases the person on recognizance, or “ROR”, the defendant has to a promise that they will attend all future court hearings after they have been released (or face a bench warrant and serious consequences). In my...View More

That is up to the family court judge who needs to consider all the facts and possible ways that visitation may be allowed. If you are opposing such visitation, I'd recommend a lawyer. If you want visitation, then I highly recommend a lawyer.
The answer is likely yes. You have the right to a lawyer and you have the right not to speak. In fact, if the government uses any statements after you asked for a lawyer against you, or derived evidence from it, you should ask your lawyer for a motion to suppress the evidence. But, if there was...View More
