    You need to sit down with an attorney and discuss your estate to see what other estate planning options may suit you. Legal Zoom is not a good source of legal support. The general rule of thumb with the legal field is that you get what you pay for so be mindful of cheap rates and online services. Especially with estates where a substantial amount of money is involved along with the interests of your family.

    I agree with the answer of my colleague, but I would also recommend you review the corporate bylaws to ensure you are doing it properly. The bylaws will dictate the process by which you can resign. Keep in mind, the corporate structure generally shields individuals from liability with a few exceptions. If any of these exceptions is used, you would still be liable for anything you may or may not have done while in your position for the time up to the point of your resignation.

  3. Is my husband responsible for a mortgage I obtained prior to marriage? He is not on the mortgage?

    No he is not on the mortgage and is not responsible for it. I would seek to get a loan modification because negative amortization mortgages are in my opinion unethical and were in large part a reason for the real estate market collapse.

  4. Can the buyer cancel the contract if the seller has not promise to make the repairs for a long time after inspection?

    I agree with my colleagues. The contract should specify those time periods as well as any attorney modifications to the contract following attorney review. In the event it does not, your attorney (and if you do not have one I would hire one immediately) should be able to either demand repairs and/or serve a "Time of the Essence" letter on the Seller and cancel in the event Seller isn't able to cure the damage and ready him/her self for closing within a short period of time.

  5. In the state of New York, can I sign a real estate purchase agreement as a buyer and then assign the contract to another buyer?

    I agree with my colleagues. Further, I would hire an attorney rather than resort to online questions when dealing in property and substantial amounts of money. Not only are there going to be some tax implications, but there may be liability implication in you doing this individually rather than in the form of an LLC or other.

    Don't attempt to go at it alone. The production company has attorneys and they will try to be as one sided (in their favor) as possible. Our firm works in this area of the law.

    I agree with my colleague. Not many attorneys will take this on a contingency basis and with attorneys, you really do get what you pay for so be careful in choosing an attorney and do not just go for the cheapest one in town.

    New Jersey will terminate your status/good standing. If you ever want to reinstate your company, you will have to pay all the back charges/fees to date. Otherwise they will generally not come after you for anything.

  9. How do I answer a foreclosure summons without a lawyer if I am willing to lose the home in the foreclosure process?

    I agree with Krishnan S. Chittur, Esq.. You need to go through all of this with an attorney because even if you let your home go via the foreclosure process, you may still be on the hook for the deficiency, if any.

    To find a great business attorney you either have to have a referral that has used that attorney, or you go through trial and error and see which attorney you like. One of my colleagues suggested calling or meeting with a few attorneys which I support because you'll get to meet the attorney and see whether or not the two of you can work together.
