  • Illegal cell phone pictures??

    An adult I know (male) recently sent a picture of a breast to multiple minors via group text. He claimed it was his own, but as I've seen his chest before and can recognize a female breast when I see one, I don't believe him. My questions, Is this...

    Frank’s Answer

    this is a huge issue right now. He can face charges if he is in fact sending pornographic pictures to minors. However, one important issue is what can be proved. i would start with going into the nearest police station, take all of your evidence, and ask to see an investigator.

  • Am I legally entitled to my Auto Insurance Claim File once I submit all of my personal documents for an Examination Under Oath?

    I got denied my personal claim file from my insurance company, after giving them my personal information in preparation for an examination under oath. But it's my own information, why would I not be entitled to it?

    Frank’s Answer

    you should have copies of your personal documents you submitted. This does not mean that you are therefore entitled to everything in the claim file.

  • Does the IRS and Immigration share information about you and your household ?

    Do they share information at tax time?

    Frank’s Answer

    not sure I understand the question. Are you asking whether IRS and immigration share information with each other or with other agencies? If you are asking whether they share with each other my experience is that no, they do not. I do, though, recommend that you always tell the truth in which case you do not need to be concerned.

  • Real Estate: change from two persons joint tenancy to three persons joint tenancy,

    I alone bought a house from my x-husband's family; then, the tax was low as a member of the family. Later, I added a man to the deed as joint tenancy and still my tax was the same. Not understanding clearly about the law, the man and I produced T...

    Frank’s Answer

    i am not a fan of joint tenancy with three people. How are decisions make? All three need to agree? Two out of three? How is that defined or enforced? What if one doesn't pay their share of taxes? Also, this is likely a "sale" which might have tax implications, although I would not hold back from a good decisions just because it creates a taxable event. Joint tenancy could make the property up for grabs in a lawsuit against any of the parties or to settle that person's debt.

    Frank’s Answer

    no, none of his actions are "right". however, in or society what is "right" is no longer the main issue. The issue is what can we sue for, what can we get from people for nothing, can we win the lawsuit lottery (as jurors we grant people their stupid lawsuit winnings in the hopes that if we are ever such a plaintiff the jury will give us what we want). Learn some legal protection lessons and move on. Never give in to threats or blackmail, call the police and charge this idiot.

  • Within a non-profit organization, are contributions to a DBA restricted to that DBA, or can they be considered general contrib?

    We are a church and we have established a DBA for one of our ministries because people were making contributions directly to the ministry of the same name and we weren't able to deposit the checks. Are those donations restricted to the use of that...

    Frank’s Answer

    i am on a church board and have worked as a church accountant in the past. We always take contributions directly to a sub-ministry as allocated for that ministry. I believe you are not acting ethically (even if you are legally) accepting donations intended for a specific ministry and depositing them instead to general donations.

    Frank’s Answer

    this is likely to not work at this point. Check into the statute of limitations on these lawsuits. Sounds like the lawsuit might be contractual with the bank rather than the county. If the payments were not made, then the county likely did what they are legally allowed to do.
