You should definitely talk to a lawyer. Your question raises numerous issues which to fully answer would require an understanding of employment law, tax law, business law and possibly other areas. I am also wondering why you would work for two years without getting paid and why you were "fired". You need to gather all your documents and put together a chronology of events to present to an attorney(s). The attorney who can answer your tax questions might not have the expertise to delve into the legalities of your business relationship. But a good lawyer knows their limits and has resources to call upon.See question
I was also out the fee i payed the firm to do my taxes....the account who did them no longer worked there and they said if I wanted the fee back to contact him . He told me to get it back from the firm . What is my recourse here .
Unless I misunderstand your question, your lawyer made a mistake which the IRS discovered and then you had to pay an additional $1k. Is that your situation, or is it that you ending up owing an additional $1k because of the attorneys' actions? In any case, this would be a small claims action and the statute of limitations is likely past.See question

You really should go see a lawyer and make sure that the bill is correctly calculated. In some states (not sure about CT, so you need to talk to a CT lawyer) there can be no "acceleration of the debt" on a consumer lease. What this means is that the unpaid portion of your rent due under the lease is not due until the time for payment arrives. So at this point in time, you would owe for another month. Also, in most places, a landlord must "mitigate" its damages, meaning, look for a new tenant and try to lessen its damages. And then there is the question of a security deposit and whether it was returned/applied. Find a CT lawyer with a specialty in residential landlord/tenant law. Once you figure out what can lawfully be charged to you, perhaps you can negotiate a release of all claims. You and your ex are most probably "jointly and severally liable", meaning you each would be responsible for the entire amount due with a right of contribution. Your lawyer can also explain this to you.See question
I have a contract with a company to pay me a percentage of billing for every company I refer. We have 60 locations are installed and in billing. They have not paid us the money owed. They agree they owe us the money but a check has not been cut.
You should retain a lawyer to send a demand letter, threaten suit and then follow through if necessary. You need to look at your contract and see if there is anything relating to "dispute resolution" or "forum selection", meaning how any dispute is to be resolved and where. Possibly, you have committed yourself to a location. In that case, you will want to hire a lawyer in that location. Or, you might want to start with a lawyer in the jurisdiction where your debtor is located.See question

Debt collection is regulated by federal and state laws so only a lawyer in your state specializing in this type of claim (consumer collections) could answer your question. However, what are your actual damages? Is this worth pursuing?See question
Unfortunately I put my child's business in my name and he has defaulted on an account causing a civil suit with judgement against him/me. I discovered he signed/forged my name to this account, what are my options as it is now costing me over $ 15...
I am sorry this happened to you. Regarding the civil suit, you need to be sure that this matter is settled and that you are formally released. It's not just a matter of your credit (though this may be how you are handling your credit issue). So yes, go to a business lawyer, but also someone who understands how to insure that a judgment is rendered unenforceable in your jurisdiction. And definitely, I would think the business lawyer should requisition relevant documents from your son so that you can see what he has done or not done with reference to the partial sale of the business and any continuing obligations you might have.See question
I had/have health insurance but they said they would not cover the incident. I thought I owed a lot more than $4400. I called the hospital who said they have sent it to collections (MediCredit). I was just wondering if there is a SoL in NC or if I...
Depending on your current financial situation, you may be able to negotiate a reduction in the amount sought, especially if you offer a lump sum. Many collectors are happy to get 50 cents on the dollar or sometimes even less. I have had success negotiating with collection agencies for my clients, often based on claims of hardship, or the threat of filing bankruptcy, where the debtor does indeed have many debts. I am also wondering whether the denial of insurance benefits by your provider was warranted but even if it was not warranted, this might be too late to pursue.. If might be worth it to pay for a consultation with a lawyer who specializes in this area to explore your options.See question
My father started a life insurance policy with Prudential when I was 4. He was the beneficiary but he died when I was 14. The insurance company won't send me a policy or my money. What can I do?
If the policy was purchased through an agent, then the agent might me able to assist you in obtaining a copy of the policy. However, as already stated, you are likely to have a statute of limitations problem.See question

You need to hire a lawyer. If you do have a right to put a lien on the property, you will need to do it before the property sells. I agree with a prior answer that some of the charges may be illegal and also you probably have a statute of limitations problem as to a good part of your claim. You will need to quantify the amount you can reasonably claim and then file a law suit, seeking what is called prejudgment attachment of the property.See question
we loaned someone $1000.00 and he wrote a promissory note to pay by 3rd of every month for 12 months and he's missed 4 or 5 payments and we later found out he's in bankruptcy how can we get our money
This is an unfortunate situation where likely you will not be able to get your money. And, given the amount in controversy, it would be difficult to find an attorney to handle the matter and/or it would not make sense to hire someone. You don't say whether the note was signed while the debtor was already in bankruptcy, or whether the payments were made while the debtor was in bankruptcy. A qualified bankruptcy attorney could analyze your options, if any. Just remember, that when someone files bankruptcy there is an "automatic stay" so you cannot initiate a proceeding against the debtor. You can also not sue the debtor if this debt has been discharged. Some creditors do file a "proof of claim" in the bankruptcy and obtain a fraction (usually very small" of what they are owed. Navigating this all without a lawyer would be extremely difficult.See question
