    Pamela’s Answer

    As my colleague notes, you don't need a business license to work in other states where you're not based. You may however, owe state tax to the states in which you earn income.

    See your own CPA for help.

  • Can i sue him

    I have a check that has my name on it but I had my friend deposit it in his bank account but now he took my money

    Pamela’s Answer

    Anyone can sue anyone for anything. Your "friend" will says the money was a gift. What will you say? Why would you give a check payable to you to your friend to deposit into his account?

    Whatever taxes you owe, you owe. Whatever accounting mistakes your accountant made that caused you to have to pay interest and penalties, your accountant is liable for.

  • What should I do? Is there a way to change or void the contract?

    Hello, I'm a girl from the Philippines. And there is a guy from Cambridge, Massachusetts who likes me. That guy asked me if I need help with money. I needed money that time so I accepted it. He sent money to me as gift to help me. The problem is h...

    Pamela’s Answer

    You did make a mistake signing a contract if that contract said this money was a loan and not a gift, and if it provided for a "huge amount with interest." If you signed this contract, your defense is duress. As a practical matter, if you're in the Philippines and plan to stay there, it's a safe bet that he won't sue you, or if he does, that he can't collect.

  • Can the Credit Union take the money from what is now my checking account to pay the CC account that was owned by my late father.

    My father who passed away had a Alliant Credit union account. Also with that Credit Union he had a credit card account. I was joint owner on the Checking account and not the CC account. Now the CU wants to take what is owed from the checking accou...

    Pamela’s Answer

    That depends what the terms of this account are but they probably can. Many banks and credit unions link all accounts for these purposes.

    If you don't want to or can't hie your own lawyer, ask the credit union for what authority they're using to do this. And if it's not too late, move your money out of this account to another bank/credit union.

  • Can she file sexual harassment against me online even though the picture isn't me?

    So we're in a Kik group and talking online and during the whole thing we are joking and the girl is like "What are you all wearing?" and I replied saying, "Nothing." And posted a random naked picture from online of an Adult guy, likely a porn pict...

    Pamela’s Answer

    Anyone can sue anyone for anything so that's never the right question. I have no idea what a Kik group is, but this is another example of kids doing stupid things without considering possible future consequences. Will this girl actually do anything? Unlikely. If she bothers, does her claim have any merit? No.

    That said, minor or not, ESPECIALLY when your recipient is a minor, NEVER send nude pictures of anyone to anyone, EVER. That means no sexting, not even as a joke. You don't just have to be concerned about sexual harassment, but you have to worry about ending up the sex offender registry for the rest of your life.

  • What is the best way to get the insurance company to pay their home owners claim? Any information is appreciated. Thank you.

    Pamela’s Answer

    Insurance companies often delay and reflexively deny or lowball claims because they know few insureds can or will hire a lawyer to fight them.

    What your aunt and include need is an insurance litigator to take charge of this claim and threaten a "bad faith: lawsuit. Use Avvo's Find a Lawyer search function to locate and interview some local lawyers whose practices includes bad faith litigation. Insurance companies fear lawyers, and with good reason.

  • Is it best to wait until the remaining two juveniles are convicted to bring a lawsuit against all four defendants?

    My home was burglarized in the summer of 2015 and the four people responsible have been arrested and charged soon after it happened. Three of the four defendants are juveniles and two of them are in family court facing felonies. The third juvenile...

    Pamela’s Answer

    • Selected as best answer

    You're presumably asking because you know that a criminal conviction based on the strict standard of "no reasonable doubt" can aid a civil suit that only needs a lower "preponderance of the evidence" standard, adn in general, the answer's yes, it's best to wait to sue for civil damages.

    To add to my colleagues' good responses, I'd add the question of the possibility of getting restitution from the criminal prosecution, so your own civil suit is not even necessary.

    Your own lawyer can provide more meaningful counsel.
