Tim Akpinar answered on Jul 18, 2020

A Wyoming attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for two weeks. If the issue poses a fire or safety hazard, you could bring it to the attention of the owner and ask if they could address it in the form of an electrician bringing the deficiency up to code. Hopefully, you could... Read more »

It sounds like you are interested in being the executor of your dad's estate and he had no will. In that case you can file your own petition to be appointed executor and let the judge decide. Do not delay. Once an executor is appointed it is quite difficult to get him or her removed without... Read more »

Q: In Platte County Wyoming do you need doors on a motor vehicle??
Tim Akpinar
Tim Akpinar answered on Feb 9, 2020

Lawmakers might be more familiar with this than car accident attorneys. One place to start researching the issue might be the Wyoming Department of Motor Vehicles. If they can't assist, maybe they could suggest other regulatory authorities. Good luck

Unless that will is found and it says something different your dad’s children should have inherited half of his estate. Hire a probate attorney right away. The longer you wait the harder it is going to get to straighten this out.

1 Answer | Asked in Tax Law, Business Formation and Business Law for Wyoming on
Q: Should I establish as a LLC or S-Corp in Wyoming? What's the best tax-saving path?

I currently reside in California and am planning on establishing my consulting agency. It will just be me and planning to hire independent contractors.

D. Mathew Blackburn
D. Mathew Blackburn answered on Dec 29, 2019

You should setup an LLC in the state where you operate. Then determine if an S-election is appropriate for your LLC.

If you establish in WY you'll have to file a foreign registration in CA.

Hire a professional.

Q: What is the effective difference between a C-Corp and an LLC taxed as a C-Corp?

I am from the UK and looking to setup a US business.

Sure, you can sue him for "fraud." However, it is unlikely you will prevail because you already have a judgment against him for the unpaid room rent.

Tim Akpinar
Tim Akpinar answered on Jul 22, 2019

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

Unless the other owner has died you are going to have a difficult time "removing his name off the title" because they still own it with you. Hire a lawyer to advise you.
