  • I came up with an Idea and have done all the leg work, my dad agreed to put $20K up for 20%

    A year later, I have continued to do all the leg work and have used his $20K to make prototypes etc and so far all I have invested is sweat equity...We just formed an LLC stating him as a 20% and me 80% owners with him investing $20K and me $0. Th...

    Robert’s Answer

    If you formed an LLC these should be questions your lawyer can answer. If you don't have a lawyer, you need one and most offer free consultations. Owning shares in a company doesn't mean you owe a % on all the expenses/bills etc. It appears your dad bought 20% of the company for $20k, if you need another $100k you can consider selling more % of the company, but nothing obligates your dad to put in more money for the 20% he already owns. It's his.

    For example, I own few paltry shares in Google, but they don't send me a bill for their office supplies etc. What I get as a shareholder are dividends. If you want to bring in another investor I'd hire an attorney to help set go over the agreement and help you answer these questions. It's better to get things done right early, than to pay for litigation down the road. Also, get an accountant if you don't have one.

    You need to file a motion to enforce and modify the orders you have, and you'll need a lawyer to do that. If the children are in danger, then call CPS immediately.

    I have a year on parole left.

    Robert’s Answer

    Why wouldn't you go? Do you want to go back to prison? Yes, the parole board can almost certainly will issue and blue warrant and ship you back to TDCJ if you ignore them. It's a bad idea.

  • If a Texas District Attorney`s office rejects a case, do the records all need to be expunged?

    Arrested for retaliation and resisting arrest da`s office rejected the charges.

    Robert’s Answer

    • Selected as best answer

    Yes you must hire a lawyer and file a petition to expunge these records. There is no automatic expunction for arrests in Texas. Whatever arrest records there are (bond paperwork, mugshot etc), are all public record until the expunction is granted. Our firm offers free consultations on all expunctions. However, a rejected case may have time limits that apply as to when you can file for an expunction. We can go over your options and let you know how to get these records destroyed as quickly as possible.

  • Extracurricular activities

    Robert’s Answer

    Your duty to transport your daughter to extracurricular activities will be defined in the custody order. Does it have a definition of what activities are covered? I would suggest you contact the lawyer who represented you in your custody case and ask him/her to help you.

  • A so called Organic Natural micro-derm scrub product damaged skin, causing a severe reaction to my face that looks like burns.

    What steps should I take to file a law suit against the company that manufactured this product?

    Robert’s Answer

    I am sorry to hear about your skin reaction. If you need medical treatment you should visit your doctor and/or dermatologist. You should contact a personal injury/product liability attorney to schedule a consultation. It's not something you should file on your own. Most personal injury lawyers, including our firm, offer free consultations. You should bring whatever information you have on the product, where you purchased it, and any medical bills or paperwork to the consultation.

  • Can a contested divorce become uncontested???

    I filed for divorce(TX) in Oct13'. Respondent answered and contested in Jan14'. I still haven't heard what it was he actually contested. 9 months later, still nothing. Until today, his lawyer informed my lawyer that his client would be coming to ...

    Robert’s Answer

    The term uncontested divorce is most often used in the context of the contract for services. Lawyers may charge less of a rate for a divorce where both parties agree to all the terms and call that an uncontested divorce. However, most divorce cases end up settling at some point but family lawyers don't usually use the terms "uncontested divorce" for a case that eventually settles, but did not begin as an agreed or uncontested divorce. Statistically speaking a low percentage of divorce cases are settled by a trial of any kind. It would be more accurate to say that your divorce case has settled for your terms. Whether that entitles you to a refund of any kind will be controlled by the language in your contract. I would recommend you review your contract to see how the fees are handled and whether you should expect a refund.
