    One of the facts missing is whether "protected client" is defined in the non-compete agreement. Are protected clients only the clients that Company A has in its portfolio? Or are protected clients all existing, prospective, or possible future clients? Does Company A give every potential customer within the geographic radius a protected client status? You may have some leeway if the term "protected client" is narrowed. If Company A is only protecting its existing portfolio, they just don'...

    The civil theft notice is not a criminal charge, but it is a notice that the "victim" must send the person thought to have stolen some property, at least 30 days before the victim files suit. If they sue the person accused and win in court, then the person accused will have to 1) return the property, 2) pay penalties for damages or loss of use, AND 3) pay treble damages (which means triple the value of the item). If it is true that the person accused has taken or stolen the item, it's much...

    I am surprised that your third and fourth DUI convictions were misdemeanors. You got lucky. In Florida, third and subsequent DUIs are charged as felonies and it is the prosecutor's responsibility to find out whether there were prior convictions. The prosecutors are directed to count prior DUI convictions from "anywhere in the world." For practical reasons, they can only research DUI convictions from within the United States.

    Florida law usually gives you 20 calendar days to file an Answer to the Complaint for certain civil actions such as Foreclosures. More time is given for complex civil actions. However, if you are unable to file an Answer in court within that 20-day period, you can at least file a Notice of Appearance of ask an attorney to file a Notice of Appearance, and then file a Motion for Extension of Time to File an Answer. Be careful about filing an Answer to the Complaint or an Answer to the civil...

  5. Family Limited Partnership

    You may be better off setting up a regular Limited Partnership instead of a Family Limited Partnership because of the possible IRS scrutiny. But if you think about it, there has to be a compelling reason to set up any kind of partnership. Why not form an LLC? Then you can have the liability protection similar to that of a corporation, but you could be taxed like a partnership.

    Regardless of all the safe-guards such as arms length transaction, fair market price, advertisement in the open market, there is still the perception of impropriety.

    In my experience the approval/rejection process for short-sale can take much longer than the time period they give you. Instead of filing an Answer, it is better to file a Motion to Abate/Stay Foreclosure Proceedings for Pending Short-Sale Negotiation. It gives the Court notice that you are interested in the outcome of the case and that you want the Court to delay the foreclosure as long as possible in order for you to get that short-sale. Make sure the short-sale agreement has some...

  9. Can i make him leave?

    You might only be able to get a court order to make him leave if you can show the court that he has committed domestic violence against you. Be careful not to commit perjury by making things up to say there was domestic violence. Courts are catching on to that pattern of behavior. If after the separation, if you divorce then the house will have to be quitclaimed to one of the parties or sold, with 50/50 proceeds split between you.

  10. Florida real estate and Partnership registration

    I agree with John Andrew that there are several questions that you would have to answer. Here's another wrinkle, there is a chance that it might be safer to go ahead and register the partnership, and then sell the real property in the name of the partnership. But, this may only be true if the partnership was a named owner or title holder in the deed that was created when the land was bought in the name of the partnership.
