    I am assuming the legal separation does not address the issue of tax filing. Although you have the legal right to file separately although married, please be advised that there are many deductions you are not permitted to have if you file in that manner. Also if you make this selection both state and federal returns must be filed in the same way. You might be able to hurt yourself, so I suggest that you discuss these options with a professional tax preparer. I also see no reason why your...

    The perpetrators of this fraud are most likely sitting in an internet cafe in Lagos, Nigeria laughing their heads off, First of all anyone who bought into this scheme is subject to a tax evasion charge from the federal and state authorities, As for the perpetrators, you can be sure the names and companies they used are non existent. They can be charged by the government with aiding and abetting tax evasion. I do not believe the users of this scheme have any cause of action since common sense...

    Being gay is not illegal; being fired for being gay is illegal. You should report him to the police, you should also consider suing him in civil court for the recovery of your money. If he has preyed on you, he has done this with other gay men and will continue to do so until someone has the courage to stop him. If you the papers, you must be aware that "private" sexual matters for both gay and straight litigants comes out duing litigation. I know nothing about your employer, but you might...

    I am not certain of this reply. However. I am aware that some people practice reflexology which is touching parts of the foot to achieve healing. This treatment is not recognized in NYS as a healing art which requires a license. To the best of my knowledge the state cannot regulate a practice which it does not license. However, the state can charge someone for pretending to have a license for a healing art which requires a license. I suggest you discuss the question with the state officials...

    You might also have a workers compensation claim. NJ is an employment at will state which means there is much scope given to employers. However the state also has a Law Against Discrimination which your boss appears to be violating. In Newark my friend Horatius Greene does this type of law. Contact him at 973-624-7800 and tell him Ron Sarno from the Joseph Roberts case recommended you contact him. On my profile there are several legal guides. I recommend reviewing the following which may be...

    Your mother has the right to impose reasonable rulesand regulations. These must be given in writing and the tenant must be informed in writing that a violation of the rules will lead to eviction. Your mother has a right to be concerned about the safety of children on her property and the security of her home. I do not advise a financial penalty for keeping the doors unlocked, but again it can be a cause for eviction if the rule is not followed. Jersey City has some strong tenant protection...

    Medicaid look back is a very serious matter. I always recommend people hiring an attorney when facing this. But 3 attorneys in a row "failing" to do this is a total misconception. One of the few defenses is a medical emergency. There are very few other defenses, and the government may consider criminal charges. Get an attorney who can work out a payment plan NOT one who promises to make the problem go away. It won't. On my profile there are several legal guides. I recommend reviewing the...

    You really need to discuss this issue with a foreclosure attorney. You do not post if you knew that the other owners took out a home equity loan without your written permission. Lenders rarely allow loans to go through if only a fraction of the owners sign the loan document. is it possible your sister forged your name on the loan application? It is totally possible that the foreclosure action as to your interest is totally illegal, but this requires a legal review of the documents. You can...
