    Ashley’s Answer

    Anyone can sue. It sounds like he may be suing you in order to intimidate you into paying for something you didn't ask for.

    You didn't ask a question but obviously you should either hire an attorney begin the process yourself. Hiring an attorney would be advisable.

  • Can I include another business' name in my domain name?

    I want to create a domain "Etsytoecommerce.com" but I don't know if it's legal to have the business name Etsy in my domain name. My business is creating e-commerce websites for existing Etsy stores. Thanks

    Ashley’s Answer

    Probably not without fear of litigation. Why don't you call them and ask them for written permission in the form of a general release or limited release. Spend the $13 to purchase the domain first though so they don't take it from under you. Talk to a business attorney to help you.

  • Are there any federal cases involving claims relating to improper jury instructions by a judge?

    Judge said defendent avoided arrest while explaining felony murder instructions.

    Ashley’s Answer

    There are tons of federal cases which may apply. An attorney would need to know more in order to help you with your research including jurisdiction, whether objections were made or not, and more. Talk to a criminal attorney or hire a legal research consultant.

  • Ex's mother threatening to take me to court

    My ex and I can't seem to come to a steady agreement about our daughter. He's not on the birth certificate but has petitioned for rights but was told we needed to attend a parenting class and mediation. I've been letting him watch her on the night...

    Ashley’s Answer

    Anyone can file a lawsuit, but no one can tell you the outcome of any litigation. Only the Judge can do that. Parents usually don't jump into a situation like this, so if your mother if feeling this way, there is some likelihood that your situation is getting pretty crazy and you should just hire an attorney.

  • I co-bonded my brother out of jail. He has failed to appear in court, now the bondsman is making threats to me. Is this legal?

    Bondsman states he will call my job, and sheriff will issue a warrant for my arrest because he did not show up to court

    Ashley’s Answer

    It is not illegal for someone to say they will call your job, but he likely shouldn't be threatening criminal action in collection of a debt. Keep track of their communications and talk to a lawyer if they start to harass you.

    This is good insight into what you need to deal with. You should send him written notice by certified mail that you don't want him to call you at work (if you don't). Also, you need to know whether you guaranteed the bond. If you did, he can likely start collections against you, but that shouldn't include making false threats that they can have you arrested.

  • I was ill advised by my financial planner regarding my Annuity. The Financial planner advised it is his fault.

    At the age of 61 I was not advised that when I started to draw from my Annuity it would affect the investment/guarantee amount unless I was 65 yrs old. My financial planner states that it is his fault because he was not aware. However he did state...

    Ashley’s Answer

    I see you asked this twice within 2 minutes, so I will add to my last answer. If you took the distribution on advice of your adviser to put the money into another investment, then you likely have a valid claim. If you took the money out and spent it, then all your broker did was execute your transaction, and all of the blame likely falls in your lap.

    Ashley’s Answer

    Your financial adviser is a salesman, in this case, an insurance salesman. When you bought the annuity, you should have read the prospectus, and you also should have done so, before taking any distributions.

    Your question is 'why didn't he tell you', and the answer is that technically he did when he gave you the prospectus. You could certainly go after him, but no attorney could guarantee any outcome.

  • If my husband has had an affair am I entitled to spousal support? I can't make it with the bills and can I stay on his insurance

    If my husband has had an affair am I entitled to spousal support? I can't make it with the bills and can I stay on his insurance

    Ashley’s Answer

    Adultery by your spouse will not entitle you to money. Usually you can't stay on your spouses health insurance policy once you are divorced. There are other options for you though.

  • Do I have to have an attorney to file for divorce?

    Can I get the paper work fill it out and give it to my spouse ? There's nothing to be divided and no children evolved.

    Ashley’s Answer

    An attorney can only answer that question after an informative meeting.
