    John’s Answer

    If you are just forming an LLC, I am not certain what relationship that still has for a possible past obligation that may have created potential liability 4 years ago. Whatever Agreement you had with the Plaintiff, you might want to have reviewed by an attorney to see if you have a Statute of Limitations defense.

  • I accepted a subpoena for someone at the office. I am the receptionist and I did not sign any docs. what should I do now?

    I was told it is not valid because they have to serve it to the person who is directed to, is that true? I don't want to get in trouble at work.

    John’s Answer

    Tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth. Tell your employer exactly what happened and give them the Subpoena that was handed to you. They can talk to their lawyers and make reasonable decisions.

  • How can I stop the home owner association from towing my truck

    1962 Chevy long bed (classic). I got a typed up notice from home owner association telling me I had 48 hours to move my truck or it will be towed. I called them and no answer so I left a message. The following day I got a call from them and was to...

    John’s Answer

    You really need to look at the CC&R's and Bylaws for your Homeowner's Association and see what is says regarding parking. If where your parking, your truck is allowable, I would not think they would be able to tow it because they don't like the way it looks. Without reading the language pertained within the Provisions of the CC&R's and/or Bylaws, no one can give you a definitive opinion.

  • How much should the mother pay for traveling expense that occur due to their moving away from the father?

    My ex-wife left to Texas with my daughter about 8 months ago. I have been paying for all the travel expenses every month to go visit my daughter. Is reasonable to ask the mother to pay half of the airfare, rental care, hotel and food? She is th...

    John’s Answer

    It appears that you are attempting to address the issue after the fact. If you objected to the move you should have filed a motion with the Court and have the Court make a decision in what is in the best interest of the child. At that time you could also have addressed the issues related to travel expenses. If you want the issue to be addressed, you are going to have to file a motion to go to Court and let the Court make an equitable decision concerning what they believe is fair and reasonable. Obviously, the move to Texas is seriously impacted your ability to spend time with your child. Perhaps, you can discuss the issue with the mother and obtain a Stipulation that somehow or rather your travel expenses should be offset as against your child support obligation. A Stipulation would have to be notarized, filed with the Court and approved by the Judge.

    John’s Answer

    You need to get this information from the Court for the Judge's attention. Perhaps, you can arrange to have the Court Mediator interview your child or in the alternative, if the Judge is willing to have the Court do an En-chambers interview with your child.
