    If you form and operate your ice cream truck business as an LLC then you will not be personally liable for the debts of the business. However, there are exceptions and you will still be liable if you personally and directly injure someone, if you personally guarantee a loan or debt, if you fail to pay or withhold employee taxes, or if you do something intentionally or recklessly that casusing harm to another person. If you do form an LLC you must also be sure to treat it as a completely...

  2. Arizona, Can abuse victims not be evicted for failure to pay rent?

    Based on the facts you provided I do not see the special rights that prevent you from evicting her. The section of the Landlord Tenant Act in Arizona that she is referring to is Arizona Revised Statute 33-1318. This section generally provides that a tenant has the right to cancel the lease if the tenant is the victim of domestic violence. The tenant must provide written notice of the domestic violence (i.e. the order of protection or injunction against harassment). You should review and...

    The order of protection will remain in place for one year unless it is modified or quashed (i.e. removed) by a court order. You have the right to request a hearing at any time during that one year period; obviously, the longer you wait the harder it will be to prove your case. Once you request a hearing the court will set the hearing within 5 days. At the hearing the person who filed the order of protection against you will have to prove there case. You will also have to present evidence to...

  4. Guardianship of adisabled adult son

    It is not necessary to have an attorney represent you to establish a guardianship for your son. However, I recommend at least consulting with an attorney so you know what is required before taking on the case yourself. You'll also want to know if you need to establish a conservatorship for you son as well. With that said, if you are in Maricopa County the Superior Court has a self-service center that provides the necessary court forms to file along with the instructions for filing the forms...

    I agree with Mr. Palmer. The local sign code should provide guidance regarding business signage. You should consult with a local attorney in your area. You may also want to contact your local code enforcement office. Most towns and cities have code enforcement officers that are familiar with these types of codes and ordinances. At the very least they should be able to provide you with the specific code section governing business signs. They might even tell you whether or not the sign...

    Your deed should specifically designate that you both own the property as joint tenants with right of survivorship. Attached to the deed should be an acceptane of joint tenants in which you acknowledge before a notary that you have accepted the property as joint tenants. If you are married then the designation may need to be community property with right of survivorship. This is something you should consult with an attorney about, it may be able to be resolved in an initial consultation and...

    One way you might defuse the situation is to have a custody evaluator appointed by the court. This evaluator is usually a psychologist who will interview the families and administer certain tests to the parents. The evaluator will also interview the children and make a recommendation to the court regarding the custody/visitation schedule. Often times the reports from the evaluator will also provide the court with some insight into the children's feelings without having them testify in court....

    Yes, the landlord can continue to collect rent; however, the new owner of the property will be the highest biddder at the trustee's sale, this is typically the bank or lender. The tenant is protected from eviction until the end of the term of the lease provided the lease was an arms length transaction.
