I agree, most Chicago matters should be filed in the Daley Center. Although there is consideration given to where the defendant resides, if the defendant files an appearance in the Daley Center, and does not challenge the venue, it will stay in Daley Center. Good Luck
Unless you have a written agreement that outlines the conditions for a buyout, the only way you will take your partner’s ownership away is by an agreement or a court order. As majority interest holders, you and your remaining partner can always vote to pay yourself salaries for the work that you perform which would reduce or eliminate the money left to be distributed. I suggest you seek legal help, and consider negotiating.
You got some great answers. Your should also know that generally, banks will wait 2-3 years (depending on the type of loan you want) from the date you actually lose title to your house before giving a new mortgage. It’s difficult to tell from your question if that happened here, but you should really talk to a knowledge mortgage broker or two. Good luck.
Sorry to hear about your loss. It is not clear what is going on, but in short other individuals should not be responsible for your father’s debt. Is there any action taken by the creditor? I am sorry I can’t be of more help, but if there is substantial money in the account, you might want to contact an attorney. Good luck.
If you do not want to use an attorney, start by call the Illinois Secretary of State to find out about your annual report requirements, and the fees that are associated with it. Once the LLC is reinstated, the LLC can formally resolve to transfer the real estate. Please note, many municipalities have additional requirement such as transfer stamps. I recommend you contact an attorney to avoid mistakes. Good Luck.
I agree. The Fifth Amendment right to remain silent is applicable in criminal cases. You do not have that right in a civil case. If you insist on remaining silent in a civil case, you will probably lose your civil case, and the court might find you in contempt. If you are trying to decide what is worse, making statements under oath that can be used in criminal prosecution, or remaining silent, I suggest you speak to an attorney asap. Good Luck.
I would recommend that you speak to an attorney about your case. Additionally, you might want to look at your policy in full and see if there is a provision as to the jurisdiction, and venue. I am sure there is a time limit and pre-conditions that should be satisfied prior to initiating a lawsuit, so please call an attorney asap. Good Luck
.... I would encourage you to remind the GC of his obligations under the applicable law. I have never seen a GC asking for an extra fee. It sounds like a mini shake down. On the flip side, if it is a small fee, it might be practical to pay and get the waivers vs paying legal fees. Good luck.
... I agree. Contact the police first. I do not know what is the amount of money that he owes you, but going to court may be a long and expensive process. You also have to consider that fact that even if you win in court, you might not be able to collect it. Good luck.
