I've answered this same question about 5 times in the past few months. Try doing a search on this site for dentist sites. And then see a business lawyer to discuss, copyright, trademark, domain name, FTC restrictions and false advertising, disclaimer, disclosure, entity formation, etc.
Business buy-sell agreements are very complicated, as are stock transfers, and you're obviously spending a lot of money on this purchase, so it's really unclear why you're not hiring a business transactional lawyer to handle this. That's who can explain what documents are needed and what they mean.
"He seems like a nice man" is not the way to evaluate a business purchase. Have you done your due diligence?
Yes. Joint accounts belong to whoever's names are on them, and the creditors have no way of knowing who the source of that money is, or whose it is after it's put in that account. All they know is that the accountholders have opted to share their money.
Move your money to your own account without his name on it ASAP.
Does your partnership provide for how you can buy the other partner out? I guess it's academic if neither has the money to buy the other out, but maybe he can qualify for a loan or find an investor to buy you out, and maybe whatever you may have provided for in terms of an appraisal or valuation would provide some guidance.
This is more of a business question than a legal one, and the only legal part of this is to review the parties' partnership agreement.
"Long story short" posts are ones that aren't really suited for the general Q&A site. You probably need to consult your own lawyer to discuss all these details.
Generally your concerns about a refund for goods pr servoces not received, and the site's ability to suspend anyone's account are 2 different things.
The 1st is basic contract law. If you paid for something, you should get a refund, because the party obligated to perform didn't, so they've breached the contract. Note I write...
No. Taxpayers (including the members of the LLC and the LLC itself) pay tax on income, not on investments. In fact, business expenses can be deducted from and can offset earned income, thus reducing the tax liability.
Your LLC is its own legal entity, with its own legal existence, and it needs to file its own tax return. See a CPA for help with the taxes.
As for the LLC operation, make sure your LLC has a written Operating Agreement complying with CA law and spelling out the LLC members'...
No, no one is entitled to any monopolies on words, and understand that trademark rights are acquired by USE ASSOCIATED WITH GOODS OR SERVICES, not by registration, so someone can't just file applications for a bunch of words they hold to exclude others from using. while it's possible to file "intent to use" applications, there needs to be an actual and imminent intent to use the trademarks.
The use and development of "secondary meaning" in consumers' minds so they think of that specific...
I agree with Attorney Medelsohn, the judge will have to consider any evidence proferred in order to determine whether it's admissible or excludable anyway, and the purpose of a motion in limine is to prevent a jury from hearing mention of something because it could prejudice their views and you can't "unring a bell." In contrast, judges are considered capable of controlling their views.
Arguments to exclude evidence in a bench trial are better expressed in an objection document addressed to...
