    Igor’s Answer

    It sounds like you need a medical malpractice or personal injury attorney. Most of those areas of practice have contingency arrangements and definitely one can find free consultation law firms.

  • Would it be smart to turn the farm into a LLC or corporation ? And there any advantage to do so ?

    I am a farmer and I have a son that wants to be part of it.

    Igor’s Answer

    it sure is if done properly. There are apparent benefits of having personal asset protection and tax advantages depending on your business organization. Don't buy the package off of internet. Spend $200 for a local an hour or so business attorney consultation to get the basics right.

  • Does sign-age/advertising have to exactly match the registered LLC name?

    I am trying to help my stepson with his drain cleaning business. He has a registered LLC and he is considering changing the name. The current name is A Target Rooter, LLC. He would like for it to be something like Turbo Rooter LLC. We are work...

    Igor’s Answer

    The way it works in Colorado he can either file a change of record with Secretary of State to change name to what he actually goes by, or as another attorney suggested file change of record with Secretary of State to register a trade name for A Target Rooter, LLC. For once it is to his business advantage to have unified name that becomes business trademark in the future.

  • What does this seemingly "boilerplate" paragraph at the end of the transcripts mean?

    FORASMUCH, THEREFORE, as the matters and things hereinabove set forth do not otherwise fully appear of record, the Petitioner tenders this report of proceedings, which said Petitioner prays may be signed and sealed by the Judge before whom said ca...

    Igor’s Answer

    What a horrible language for once. Sounds like some medieval British court lingo. ... In any case what i am reading is: something on the original transcript of proceedings was not correctly entered by the reporter or transcriber and the attorney after reviewing the transcript edited text and wants to have judge sign on on these edits. Hopefully, if the judge's recollection of the proceedings match those edits the judge would make the edits an official part of the record. Unless you were pro se why is your attorney not clarifying it to you?

  • What should I do to make sure I can travel to Mexico in May and re-enter US with no problem?

    I am on a H-1B visa (valid for another 18 months) and recently married a US citizen. Our wedding is in Mexico in May. My employer is planing on reducing the workforce (90% chance it is happening by beginning of March) and there is no guarantee tha...

    Igor’s Answer

    Congratulations on your marriage and forget about H1B. File one step adjustment of status application now ($1,500 in government fees including advance parole application). There is a very good chance you may get your advance parole issued for that wedding day in May if you file now. If you spouse has enough income for I-864 purposes the one step application can probably be prepared within a week or two including medical etc. Qualified legal help will definitely be advisable because of the time constraints.

  • Do i need a license to open a booking/talent agency in the state of Michigan?

    Do i need a license to open a booking/talent agency in the state of Michigan? I went through legal zoom and I actually live in Illinois, but it's registered in Michigan. Please advise the process. Thanks

    Igor’s Answer

    As other attorneys suggested you should have a consult with attorney licensed in the state where you want to operate. Attorneys are advising to have consultation for a good reason; because nobody wants to risk liability without having established proper attorney-client relationship, not because they don't know or don't want to give free services. Online forums will help you to find qualified attorney for your need but by definition if attorney is "qualified" she or he will not be putting license/malpractice risk on the line for "internet" advisements. As a general rule though you can register company in one state and operate in another by filing "certificate of foreign authority" or something of that nature with secretary of state where you want to operate. You probably also will need a "registered agent" in that state, physical address, and an obligation to file periodical reports or other documents depending on the choice of entity. Choice of forum is important for various reasons including tax advantages/disadvantages. Good Luck

    Igor’s Answer

    Marriage based adjustment of status to legal permanent residency will take care of all of your issues with employment authorization, residency etc. for your fiancee. Best thing you could do for your future wife at this point is to have short consultation with immigration attorney to make sure you have no issues making the process longer or harder than it should be.

  • Should I do anything to nullify the old incorrectly named contracts, or do I just need to do new ones with the correct co. name?

    My software company operates in New York, but it is a Delaware C Corp. I sold it (sold all the shares) to another individual back in November. I've since hired interns for a new software project and since time was of the essence, I used the same E...

    Igor’s Answer

    It appears that the "old" agreements are not valid because one party to the agreement has not signed it (you). You do run the hypothetical risk of your employee believing that they were operated under "valid" agreement and may find a way to file a complaint under one or more legal contractual doctrines that are available in your jurisdiction. You need to bear in mind that the presumption is against the drafting party i.e. you so you will have the burden of proof to show that there was no agreement (written or otherwise) or "meeting of the minds" between the parties. Safer bet would be to include a statement into new agreements that "any previous" agreements written or otherwise are not valid. Even better hire an attorney for documents review and buy yourself a piece of mind.
