I had lent a friend $15000 last year to put it into his "business" so I can get some benefits out of it. However, he has never given me any money from what he's earned, and now I asked for my money back and he's yet refusing to return it. I have...
Depending on the wording of the note, you can seek a judgment on it. Keep in mind if the money isn't secured by property, and he's broke, then you just lost $15,000. A judgment against a deadbeat is just a piece of paper. Maybe he'll offer to give you a few thousand back to settle the matter. I know, I know, $15k. But in reality this happens, a lot, and it typically ends with the lender learning a hard lesson about mixing friendship with business.

It may be treated as income (See "iIn re marriage of Rogers"), as theoretically it's non-marital property (503(a)(1) treats gifts as non-marital). It's all very fact specific. Talk to a family law attorney in your area for specific guidance.See question

I was involved in a lawsuit that did not result in a judgment. The attorneys for the defendant agreed to waive the required fees, something like $850, in return for signing a Release of All Claims. This was a very stressful time and I wasn't in th...

My child's father recently threatened to shoot me. He's a machine gunner for the marines. If I file for an order of protection against him will he get penalized by the military?
0331's are cut from a different cloth. It's not easy being in the grunts, and I'm not excusing anything he may or may not have done. Presuming you're in Illinois and he's either (Presuming active duty) in Lejeune, Pendleton, 29 Stumps, Hawaii or Okinawa - although an OP may be appropriate, there may be some alternatives you can look into.
Best of luck.See question
