    Answered . The way you asked the question makes it sound to me that you might be in fear for yourself. If that is the case, you should speak to a lawyer before they find you. You may be able to head some of this problem off.

    You may want to discuss your situation with a lawyer in more detail. Most lawyers on Avvo, including myself, offer a free phone consultation.
