    If you don't think that she deserves the money back, then you should contest her story. If you have pictures of the damages, as well as invoices from your vendors and contractors, that will be good proof. Be aware, however, that if a tenant is able to show that a landlord improperly held their security deposit, they can be awarded damages of three times the amount withheld.

    The licenses you must obtain will depend on what city you open your business in. Check on the city's website to see if a business license or any additional permit is required. If you want to file a corporation, you will do that with the secretary of state. If you don't do a corporation, you will need a Fictitious Business Name, which is filed with your county. Taxes get paid to the Franchise Tax Board and to the IRS. Be careful, it might be best to consult an attorney to make sure that...

    It is a difficult question which depends on your level of impairment. This is strictly a factual issue, so you would likely need to find an expert who could testify as to your mental state. It is impossible to advise one way or another without a detailed examination, which you should contact an attorney to do.

    It is confusing as to if you are on tourist visa, or if you have a green card. If you have a green card, even a conditional one, then your past overstay is not an issue and you can travel abroad safely for up to six months. If you do not have a green card, you need to be very careful as you will likely be subject to a 10 year bar on reentering the US. If you are still confused, talk to an immigration attorney.

    You are still subject to the two year home residency requirement. Getting a B2 visa will also be more difficult if you are married to a U.S. citizen. You will need to go out of your way to show your intent to return home at the end of your visa period. This can be through pre-purchase of return plane tickets, evidence of a residence, job, and family abroad. It sounds like a complex situation and you should consult with an immigration attorney for an exact answer.

    The exact answer will depend upon the real estate purchase agreement signed by buyer and seller. Normally, a cancellation like this, will not be considered valid until it is received. You should consult with a real estate attorney, who can review the contract, in order to get an exact response.

  8. The landlord declares the forfeiture of my lease. I moved out as he required. But he said I was still bound to the lease.

    You will likely be legally bound to pay the rent for the term of the lease, or until the landlord releases the apartment. The landlord must make his best efforts to market and release the unit, called mitigating his damages. But if he is not able to rent it out again, you will likely be liable for the whole term. In order to enforce this, however, the landlord needs to file a civil suit. Often times you can negotiate it or the landlord may not even try to enforce it if you don't have the...

    If your boyfriend completed a handwritten will, dated it, and signed it, it is most likely enforceable as a holographic will. You will want to talk to a probate attorney to make sure and also start the process of probate (the court distribution of property of a deceased person), if necessary.

    You could file a case in small claims court for the amount you paid to get the car out of the lot. It is unlikely that you would get emotional damages, but you never know. You'll also want to evaluate the cost of filing the case and the time involved. I would bet in the end that it would not be worth it to file, but that is a decision only you can make. You could also file a complaint with the Better Business Bureau. For more information on the small claims process check out: http://www....
