I am from the UK and looking to setup a US business. I've decided that taxation as a C-Corp is best as I am looking to build capital and retain profits in the company so a pass-through entity is not ideal. I understand that as a C-Corp, things are more formal and decisions require minuted... Read more »
For tax there is no difference. For state business compliance issues a Corporation has slightly more things that have to be done to maintain the corporate veil. Annual meetings are required where an LLC can waive them you have to set a par value for shares and report the number of shares issued...Read more »
He left and paid part with a promise to make monthly payments. He hasn’t paid and I have a judgement against him. He says he doesn’t have to pay because he is disabled. Can I file fraud charges against him and have him arrested because he signed a promissory note that was witnessed? I am a... Read more »
I'm sorry your question hasn't been picked up in four weeks. Try reposting in the Libel & Slander section. That's where defamation would fall under, and where the question would hopefully have a better chance of being seen by a Wyoming attorney who practices in that area. Good luck
I did a loan modification after bankruptcy and paid two months but couldn’t pay it anymore. The mortgage company said I can do a short sale. Is it ok for me to try to short sale or should I just walk away?

When I took over trailer I had to pay 3 years back taxes, back rent 3-4 months plus his fees to landlords. I've looked for him and can't locate him. I've been paying for everything for 5 years now. Want his name off title.
Yes. Joining the Military is a very serious matter. Going AWOL is seriously frowned upon by the Court and Prosecutor if her National Guard Commander swears out a Warrant. She also does not want an Other Than Honorable Discharge as it will ruin her life. A Dishonorable Discharge or Bad...Read more »
If you apply for everything correctly, including advanced parole, she will have the ability to travel out of the country. That said, it is highly recommended that she does not. First, she has overstayed. Second, unless she came on a fiance visa, they can prevent her from entering based on immigrant...Read more »
My Girlfriend from Mexico whom I met while doing volunteer work in Ecuador came to visit me, after I returned to the United States, entering the country with a valid travel visa. After 2 months, I decided we could not live without each other and we got married.

I judged stopping in breakdown lane to be potentially hazardous, so a passenger in my vehicle called an accident report in to local Sheriff's office on cellphone while I kept on driving. What does Wyoming law state about requirement to stop and render aid?
In nearly every state the law only applies to drivers "involved in the accident." A passer by such as yourself need not stop. You can phone the police if you clearly saw it happen (as opposed to looking over once you hear the bang).
I have judgments that originated in NJ 8 years ago as part of my family law case. The case was transferred to WY when the children and I moved here 5 years ago. Since the judgments are part of family action, should interest be accrued using NJ rates for all 8 years, or 3 years with NJ and 5 with... Read more »
I was in a wreck 3 weeks ago. I was ruled not at fault by the police and the other party received a ticket. Can I go after the other person for down payment and plates/sales tax on a new car that I would not have to pay if not for their negligence? This happened in Wyoming.
You can go after them for the value of your vehicle if it was for sale the minute before the wreck. You would get the sales tax. Plates you keep. There may be a transfer charge in your state so ask for that. You have a claim for your injuries. I suggest you contact a member of the Wyoming Assn for...Read more »
If you successfully make it past a border or entry point and into the U.S., you'll have more time to apply for asylum. In fact, you can take up to a year after entering the U.S. to start the process. (If that deadline has passed, talk to an attorney—exceptions are possible, and USCIS may show...Read more »
I will be starting a business making the juice for e vapes and the different flavors were gonna come in a different base color for the bottle but the general design would stay the same. Would I need to trademark each flavor because of the different base color or just the business name and mascot?... Read more »
It depends on how much protection you want for your brand. If you want to prevent other people from using each individual color for the specific juice, then you would need to trademark each bottle design. Although, doing so could be expensive to obtain and maintain. If you only want to prevent...Read more »
