    As described above, a filing under Chapter 7 is a liquidation; meaning, the Court will look at what you own, cancel your debts that are dischargeable under Chapter 7, sell what non-exempt assets you have, and then use the leftover money to pay your creditors. The major benefit of a Ch. 7 liquidation is that you can get rid of your house, your second, and any other debts you may have such as credit cards, medical bills, etc. Unfortunately, any federal student debt you may have would not be...

    I agree with Mr. Keyt's post; more details are necessary to make any recommendation of real value. There are many factors here in Nevada that have to be considered before one can know how this situation might play out. For instance, if you decide to continue business without her,she might decide to sue you for breach of contract, breach of the covenant of good faith and fair dealing, unjust enrichment, etc. But, if she has not giving anything of value (time, money, etc.) in return for...

    We handle bankruptcy's for the recently unemployed all the time, but as those who answered before me stated, you will need to qualify under the means test. To determine whether a client can qualify for a chapter 7 we give them a questionnaire which helps them detail their financial history and current status. From this questionnaire we can determine whether a client will qualify for a Chapter 7 filing. If a client has earned too much income in the recent past but is not unemployed,...

    My firm has handled numerous entity formations such as this, and 'it isn't way too risky' if you set up everything the right way. Nevada is a business friendly state that has provided entrepreneurs a powerful set of tools to avoid liability while maintaining profitability. First, the business organization must be configured in a way that shields you personally from liability. This typically involves forming a Nevada Limited Liability Company, Corporation, or other business entity. You would...

    Oral Agreements such as yours can be difficult to enforce, but there are ways to do it. To prove that there is a contract you must show offer, acceptance, and consideration (something of value given). There must be a meeting of the minds between the parties, or in other words, the main terms have to have been agreed upon. Written agreements are ideal because they spell all of these things out, but when the agreement is oral, it becomes much more difficult to prove a contract exists....

    I assume you not only want to get out of the business, but also get out of the business alive. Fortunately, the bankruptcy code provides business owners with the ability to do just that, of course, it all depends on the details. While this isn't within the area of my expertise, I work with another attorney who handles cases like yours with a great deal of success. Feel free to contact me and I will put you in touch. *Disclaimer: This answer is intended to be a service to the public and...

    Before your husband can adopt your daughter you will need to terminate the parental rights of the father, which is usually accomplished through a petition to terminate parental rights in family court. It is very important to hire a competent attorney to draft and file the petition because important information must be included in the petition before the court will even consider it, most importantly, the petition must demonstrate that the father is legally unfit to be a parent. See the...

    I am not an attorney in KS, but generally in most states your parents would have to petition the court to have you parental rights terminated before they would be able to adopt your son. Through the petition to terminate parental rights, your parents would have to show the Court that you are an unfit parent and that the termination of your rights would be in the best interest of the child. The link below explains more about petitions to terminate in the state of NV. It should give you an idea...

    The issue surrounding the absence of the father's name on the birth certificate varies from state to state (I am an attorney in NV), but in most states you must file a Petition to Terminate Parental Rights with the Court. If you are able to demonstrate through the petition that the biologically father is legally 'unfit' to be a parent, then the court may strip the father of his parental rights and pave the way for your husband to adopt your son. I say 'legally unfit' because most states are...

    In order for your husband to adopt your child you will need to terminate the biological child's parental rights, which is generally done in most states through a petition to terminate parental rights. It is important that you consult with a competent attorney in the appropriate state when filing a petition to terminate parental rights because there are very specific facts you need to include in the petition before the court will even consider it. Most importantly, you will have to demonstrate...
