I got a warrant of debt letter and I'm summoned to appear in court on March 15th. I owe this debt and can afford to pay it in full since I recently started a new job last month. The debt is of about $2000, but they are also claiming an extra $1000...
If you owe the money and can settle for cents on a dollar, do it. Lump sum settlements are better than monthly payments as creditors are eager to get funds quickly than overtime. Good luck to you.See question

What you are referring to is cross border trade which is a highly specialized area of law which requires a good understanding of international laws such as CISG (I am assuming this is sale of good and not services), New York Convention for dispute resolution to name a few. Contracts based on cross border trade relationship are much more complex as it requires looking at the laws of two countries for purposes of enforcement. Both the supplier of good and the demanded of it are required to comply with certain requirements. Furthermore, your relationship with the supplier would probably be that of a exclusive distributor which does require licensing depending on the good sold. I highly suggest you speak to an Attorney locally who does international trade work to cover all bases. Good luck to you.See question
We will be providing website development services in local cities. The main “location” will be Melbourne, FL. We also want the ability to add more local “branches” to the business (i.e. Houston, TX; Tulsa, OK, etc) and these would need to be part ...
I agree with Attorney Deason in that your main concern when opening your business should be to limit personal liability. LLC's and partnerships are best suited for this as it addresses personal and tax liability issues. Under your scenario, you could have the original location in Melbourne and branch out to other locations and if your brand is successful you can think about franchising which is a separate business structure all together. Setting up a business correctly is as important as the initial concept so I suggest you meet with an experienced Business Attorney in your area. Good luck to you.See question
My mother and spouse died a week apart. I completed the FMLA paperwork and took time away from the office. When I tried to return ahead of time, my business partners forced me to work from home, usurped my authority and eventually forced me to sig...
I am sorry about your loss. Under the circumstances you mentioned, the best advise I can give you is to seek an Experienced Corporate Counsel locally. From the few things you have mentioned above, there are various issues which involve different areas of law and for which it is very difficult to give valuable information on this forum. Good luck to you.See question

Your KY LLC can be registered to do business as a Foreign LLC in Florida but this would require you to pay annual fees in both States. If you want to dissolve the KY LLC, you should look at the State requirements for KY. For incorporating in Florida, you can visit www.sunbiz.org
I highly recommend you speak to a Florida Business Law Attorney locally before you make a switch because there are both tax consequences as well as liability issues that you should be aware of. Good luck to you.
For different reasons, had to take a deal with the highest interest on a Honda Accord 2012. Around 9,000 have been paid in interest, 31,000 still owed, 22,000 is the market value. Monthly payment is $652. I am broke, make little money, cannot pay ...
You have a few options. This is a big debt and it was probably not a good idea to buy a car with such a high interest. You can try to call the bank that holds the loan to see if they are willing to reduce the interest to a more affordable rate (rarely happens, but you can give it a shot) or you can speak to a Bankruptcy Attorney locally regarding your options for a Chapter 7 filing. Good luck to you.See question
I have worked as a 1099 independent contractor before and I have never had a problem receiving pay statements or proofs of income. Now I have worked as a 1099 delivery person for a company here in Tampa for about two months and receive a check in ...
The company issuing the 1099 is required to submit reports, annually, of any payments over $600 so this Company should have a record of the payments made to you and should be willing to provide. If they send you a check weekly, and assuming its not a personal check written from their Company account, its a very simple step for the Company to pull the ledger for the dates you need. On a separate note, you mentioned you receive checks so if you deposit these checks into your account, you can also request your bank to send you copies of those endorsed which you can use for proof of income. Good luck to you.See question
Corpoaraction is in Miami florida. Thank you
You would look at the bylaws and shareholders agreement (if any) of the S-Corp., which will help you effectuate a transfer. If the Corp. doesn't have bylaws, then you must speak to a Corporate Law Counsel locally. Good luck to you.See question
Officer is seeking damages for the Corporation Pro Se
As Counsels mentioned, if its small claims (damages for $5000 or less), then yes, officer can represent Corp. If not, Florida Courts require an Attorney to represent the Corporation since the Corporation is a separate entity and to avoid any potential conflicts with the shareholders/officers. It is often best practice to have an Attorney assist with legal proceedings as oppose to going pro-se. Good luck to you.

I paid over the 25% non refundable deposit and then cancelled my event. The vendor states now that any additional monies paid is also forfeited. Should it have to be stated separately from the deposit in the contract? Is this right?
If the contract states only 25% of initial deposit is non-refundable, then anything over is a breach. Depending on the overall language of the contract you may have a claim for breach and damages.See question
