Each year, the PA's office is asking for more and more documentation and I'm just wondering how much of this is actually legal. Receipts, daily management logs of land and livestock, tax paperwork, bank paperwork, photos, proof of sales, and even trying to force us to use chemicals we do... View More
For the real estate transaction, hire a real estate lawyer. If you still need to set up your business entity for the farm, hire a lawyer handling business formation. You might be able to find a lawyer/law firm that does both. Another issue is whether your land is already zoned for everything you...View More
I'm guessing that, by "registered with the state", you mean registering the nursery with the Fla. Dept. of Agriculture and Consumer Services pursuant to Fla. Statutes Section 581.131. The purposes of State regulation/inspection of nurseries are different than the purposes of County...View More
This camera send notifications to his phone whenever the sensor is activated. In midst of an altercation with him he admitted to placing that camera there specifically for me even though there are many people who work in that office I just happen to work alone on night shift.

The law appears to be that you are not legally required to stop and report the accident to the authorities if the accident only involved your automobile and the bear. If the accident involved another car, you absolutely have to stop and exchange information. You also don't want to stop and get...View More
I work at a pet boarding facility, and in the state of Florida, owners are required to have their dogs up to date on their rabies vaccine. My boss told me to accept a dog that is out of date on his rabies vaccine..
I believe the requirement that owners keep their animals vaccinated would be Florida Statute 828.30. It doesn't appear to include any requirement that pet boarding facilities refuse to accept unvaccinated animals, and if there is that would be your boss's duty, not yours.
In order to claim a possessory lien on the horse, a security interest in the horse would need to have been created in the boarding contract. The only other way to get the horse would be to sue the owner, get a judgment, levy upon the horse, and then buy it at the execution sale.
We have just brought a house in a HOA governed community in Tampa, Florida. We have a 2000 sqf backyard and have planted some Florida approved fruit trees like mango , banana as we wanted home grown food and for religious practices. We got a letter from HOA that we are not allowed to plant fruit... View More
The ARB documents/guidelines are valid restrictions adopted by the HOA. Whether or not you can claim a reasonable accommodation for religious practices is a fact-based question that requires the review of a lot of factors, which go beyond the scope of this website and require a review of all of...View More
This is an agriculture business, one of my employees was demanding a raise or he was quiting and having another employee fired or else he was quiting, which neither happened. At the same time he had his car repossessed and was blaming it on the fact that the company doesn't pay him enough (he... View More
Is what illegal? He can quit, of course, or you can fire him under most circumstances. What would his "wrongful termination" claim be; it's not enough for him to complain that he was fired "wrongfully", employment is generally "at will", which means that an...View More
I work on a horse ranch. Today I woke up to a sign stating that if things aren't done properly. My pay will be docked. This raised a lot of red flags for me. (Is this legal, how much money is going to be taken off my check.)
I boarded dogs at a kennel. After 5 months of payments the owner offered me a part-time job. It progressed from a 3-4 hour morning/evening to 24 hours (10 hrs in the kennel & 14 hrs in their home taking care of their 8 pets) over 3, 5, 7, or 10 day periods. On lunch, I was required to answer... View More
We are in a county that is extremely difficult to work with and they have said that if we use our barn for anything other than personal use they will revoke the building permit that we used to build our barn because it was permitted with an agricultural exemption that said it was for personal use...

Of test to landlord legally? Or should he perform his own testing since I paid for the original test.my Dr advised me not to live there since I have lupus and my hives and swelling are severe. I just want to be released from the lease agreement.
Best advice is that you need to consult with a tenant attorney ASAP. There is a way to get out of a lease, but you must follow the proper steps and set it up correctly. You need hands on legal advice not a blurb from this site.
A while back my husband got struck by lightening on the job along with 3 other people on a field. the dairy gave him workers comp. But just yesterday he found out not even by his boss but by an ex-employee he was fired; due to getting contractors to do their job. My Husband worked on the fence... View More
Contact a member of the Fla Justice Assn that handles comp--they give free consults. Your husband needs to find out when he can go to a doctor of his own choosing. Generally that's all your husband will get.
Florida: My mother has 4 horses, and financially she is suffereing. She works 2 jobs and still cannot pay her bills, utilities are cut off every other month and I'm having to pay them for her. I know if she got rid of her horses, or at least 3 of them, she would be fine, but she refuses to do... View More
No, unless you can persuade a court that she is mentally incompetent, you cannot second-guess her financial decisions. You indicate that you are "having" to pay her bills. Actually that is not correct. Legally, you have no obligation to pay her bills.
Cases vary depending upon the facts of the case and the ability of the parties to a case to resolve the specific issues established in the pleadings of the case. Mediation is mandatory, usually, and a complete settlement can be reached in a vast majority of cases filed. In order to know the law on...View More
