I agree with all three answers. If there is no written and properly executed will, then the laws of intestate succession will apply. Any of, or a group of, the children can ask the court to be appointed as the personal representative of the estate.
If the amount of "personal items" is not significant, perhaps the beneficiaries can agree to follow the stated intent in the video. Also, if some feel the parents (based on the video) did not want them to receive the SS settlement, they should be...
The State of Florida will not allow a corporation with the same name until a year after dissolution. So, if you wait a year, you could do it, but this would be a new entity which could create legal and accounting issues. If the entity is not actively doing anything, you'd probably be better served opening a new company with a similar or new name. However, if it's an ongoing business, you should pay the higher amount to reinstate to avoid the complications of a new entity.
In Florida these agreements are governed by Section
542.335 of the Florida Statutes. Under this section, to be
enforceable, these agreements must protect a “legitimate business
interest” and be reasonable in scope and duration.
The statute defines "legitimate business interests" as: (1)
trade secrets; (2) valuable confidential business information
that does not qualify as trade secrets; (3) substantial relationships
with specific prospective or existing customers or patients;
Attorneys are not permitted to receive excessive fees. If you do not want to go forward with the representation, you should let them know as soon as possible and ask for a refund of the retainer less a reasonable fee for their services, if any.
From what you said, you entered into an agreement with her to watch your dogs. Since neither of you mentioned money, the argument will be what, if anything, is a reasonable amount. You obviously felt $100 was reasonable (after all, if it was a family member or close friend you wouldn't tip) while she believes it should be $37/day. Thus, you are best to determine and coming to an agreement with her as to what is a "reasonable amount" for these services and deduct what she's already been paid (...
(3) They can ask you for records. They might be able to recover from you if they can show a fraudulent transfer to you (i.e., you took out money when the company couldn't afford to pay its bills) or for other reasons be able to pierce the corporate veil.
I assume when you say "charged with" you mean sued for (outside the criminal context). If that's the case and a judgment is obtained, they can lien your property and go after unprotected assets you have. To specifically answer your question, yes, they can garnish you wages (up to 25% of your after tax income, but with some rights to seek to limit the amount if your income is below certain amounts).
If the business has no right to cancel the lease, then the business would be liable for the balance of the rent. Most leases have a clause that allows the landlord to accelerate the lease payments so they can collect the entire amount for the 18 months owed. Most states require the landlord to minimize their loses by trying to rent it to another tenant. If the business is liable, your personal guarantee will make you liable too. Thus, the landlord will likely sue both the entity and you....
The answer likely lies on the provisions of the lease and whether your boyfriend has the right to be there as your guest. If there are limitation on guests (i.e., number of overnights). then you will have an issue. However, if there is no provision in the lease that would keep him from visiting as he is your landlord may be in the wrong. Refusal to permit an exception to a no-pets rule may constitute a discriminatory practice when an individual with a disability is unable to use and enjoy a...
No, you must use the sheriff or a certified process server. Here is the Statute (48.021(1)): All process shall be served by the sheriff of the county where the person to be served is found, except initial nonenforceable civil process, criminal witness subpoenas, and criminal summonses may be served by a special process server appointed by the sheriff as provided for in this section or by a certified process server as provided for in ss. 48.25-48.31.
