    Utah law authorizes judgments by confession. I would encourage you to look for a business attorney who has experience with the types of contracts you use in your industry.

    Be sure to consult a probate attorney in your area. He or she can help you with a small estate affidavit (if it qualifies), and it should not cost very.

    You should definitely speak with an employment attorney. Most attorneys offer a free consultation to review your case in more detail. Your claims would depend on the type of employment relationship you had. For example, your case would depend if you were considered an at-will employee, an independent contractor, or whether you were "on probation."

    I recommend you hire a business attorney and an accountant to help you get your business off the ground. You can try to do it yourself or use a "kit" from an internet company, thinking you are saving money, but my experience is that you are not saving that much money than if you were to hire someone you can meet with and ask questions. A local professional will help you start your business the right way and avoid future problems, and can counsel you on what would be in your best interest as...

    Usually the power of attorney does not need to be recorded with the county, unless it somehow affects title to the property. A properly drafted POA would only detail the powers and authority you are granting your mother (what she can do), as well as the limitations you are putting on your mother (what she cannot do). The title company and escrow officer will need to see and make a copy of the POA.

    You should consult with a local attorney about your case. But if you have a contract with the company, it would govern your relationship. Read the fine print of you contract.

    Consult with a lawyer who specializes in family law, but a restraining order would help set limits on him and his access to the children and the house. Simón Cantarero http://www.lawyerinutah.com/about-us/j-simon-cantarero-2

    Consult with a real estate/construction attorney in your area as soon as possible. In Utah, a claim based on contract or warranty must be brought within 6 years of completion or abandonment of construction, unless the contract provides for a different period of time. All other actions must be brought within 2 years of discovering the cause of action, but in no event can an action be brought more than 9 years after completion or abandonment of construction, although 2 years are allowed from...

    Don't delay! The agreement will likely tell you where you can sue, and getting legal counsel will help you do things right. Best of luck! 801-996-3850 http://www.lawyerinutah.com/about-us/j-simon-cantarero-2

  10. I was recently laid off and received a severance package, however the way that it's worded may not allow me to get unemployment?

    Read those documents very, very carefully. You can hire an employment attorney to review and "interpret" the documents so you know what you're giving up. Unemployment benefits depend on whether you were terminated or resigned, but the most important thing is whether you can do what you were doing with another company. 801-996-3850 http://www.lawyerinutah.com/about-us/j-simon-cantarero-2
