I am trying to consider whether to get a DBA on my business. I understand that this does not prevent someone else from using the business name, for which I would have to register the name and/or trademark. After learning a little bit, I begin to ...
A dba filing in a county in New York State protects your name in that county only. A corporation's dba filing with the Division of Corporations in New York State Secretary of State office protects you in the entire state.See question

I filled my uncontested divorce papers in Dec 2012 along with a motion to expedite based on the need to show divorce decree to immigration officials. I have filed petition to remove condition from my Temporary green card without my spouse. Immigra...
Normally in Upstate New York, a cover letter asking to expedite with a valid reason will suffice. The turn-around time is 2 to 4 weeks, depending on whether any issues are raised. In one case, the judge bypassed the magistrate review and issued a judgment, thus quickening the process. But the judge is a well respected judge.See question

Also can you withdrawal or does the money have to be spent and on what?

does this mean judgement can be vacated or can you petition to have this vacated
I agree with Mr. Russo, but want to clarify. While the record may exist for an indeterminate time, a judgment in most states is limited as to enforceability. In New York, where I practice, it's 10 years and renewable for another 10 years. But states differ. You may also have defenses and therefore cause to vacate the judgment, such as improper service of process (you never received notice of the initial lawsuit). It's worth your time to consult with a Florida attorney. Best of luck to you.See question
I am legally obligated to pay this? i didnt pay when i left but he will send me a bill. i dont know how to prove this as it was a verbal agreement. i would not have gone to see him if he said it was 350.00 his hourly rate.
This is a difficult question to address, because many times I've met with a new client and it goes way over the free 15 minute consult. After you get the bill, write the attorney and recite the facts and ask him to reconsider his position.See question
