    It depends on what your misdemeanor conviction is regarding. Unfortunately, in CA moral character is a large issue in regards to health care professions. As a former health care administrator, I can say that if for example you got a DUI/wet reckless and your job requires you to travel from one hospital to another, you may have certificate issues. Each certificate program also has a department to which you can address these questions. That might be best option for you to get a clear...

    Yes, you can put whomever you desire as the beneficiary of your assets. If you have other children to avoid having conflict amongst them, you may want to create a estate plan that clearly dictates your desires. Having a proper estate plan can be very beneficial to you and ensure that your wishes are clearly stated.

    The answer to your question is that a landlord cannot charge for normal wear and tear, however you have to determine what is normal wear and tear. Security deposits are used to repair damage to rental units. If this is considered beyond normal wear and tear, you could use the security deposit to repair the damage. The guiding principles that would assist you are CCP 1950.5 and possibly CCP 1950. CCP stands for California Civil Procedure and can either be accessed online or at any law...

    Generally, the answer to your question is no. Unfortunately, Power of Attorney is something that your daughter must designate. If she does not have capacity to do so, then you would not be granted Power of Attorney. Guardianship is a more plausible option for you. However, the fact that you do not live in the same state will make it hard for you to get Guardianship. Think about family members that you trust to act as a guardian, or move closer to your daughter if possible, or finally look...

  6. No contractors licence

    In CA, to act as a contractor you must have a contractor's license for any job over $500. In this case, the penalty depends. If your boyfriend wants to be a licensed contractor he may be penalized by the contractor's board for violating their laws. There could be a fine, or in the most severe cases he will be refused a contractor's license. The best option is to contact the Contractor's Licensing Board and ask them directly.

    If you missed a mediation, you should immediately contact both the mediator, and if applicable the other side's attorney. You should always make sure that you explain your situation. In some instances there could be some financial penalties. Please make sure that you immediately contact the mediator and explain your situation. Hopefully, you can reschedule the mediation.

    Although state law differ between states, most states will send everything to probate unless you have a document that avoids probate i.e. a trust. Remember, the government wants to get their hands on as much as possible. The best option for you is to contact an estate planning attorney licensed in your state.

  9. If a commercia mortgage is called by the bank, is the borrower pursued before the guarantor?

    Answered about 4 years ago.

    1. Maneesh Sharma
    1 lawyer answer

    This is an interesting question...the answer however might not be what you want to hear. When you sign as a guarantor, you are basically stating that if the borrower defaults, you are allowing the bank to come after you. The bank can and most times will come directly after you without going after the borrower first. The reason being is that if the borrower defaulted, he/she probably doesn't have any money. So, the logical thing is to go after the guarantor. One good way of protecting your...

    This is a tricky situation because if the lawyer decided to drop you as a client based on moral grounds, this usually means that the lawyer felt as if something you suggested or did was not appropriate. Each state has different laws, however most states do allow an attorney to withdraw from a case if it is deemed that there is a perpetuation of fraud. It is advisable that you contact another attorney in the state of Michigan to further discuss your case. If the attorney improperly withdrew,...
