If this case was originally in justice court, the appeal will be to the superior court. Once the Plaintiff files his/her appeal brief, you will want to file an opposition brief, or the Plaintiff may win the appeal by default. You don't HAVE to do this, but it is a good idea. What you may want to do is, once you receive the appeal brief, take it to an attorney for a one-hour consult to determine whether they is any real basis for the appeal.See question

An attorney would need to review your contract to see if there are any provisions under which you could escape your contractual obligation to stay for six months. It is impossible to say without reviewing the contract. Make an appointment for a consultation with an attorney and bring the contract with you.See question

If the person/company you owe money to is your landlord, it is perfectly legal for this person to send you a 5- or 10-day notice to pay up or vacate. If you do neither, the landlord would file a forcible detainer action to evict you. If the demands are coming not from your landlord but from an HOA, they may have the ability to impose a lien. You should take all these document to an attorney to review them and then advise you.See question

I allowed my daughters friend into my house about a month ago. While we were out, she searched through my things and found my savings and took about 4,000 cash but thats it. I have proof that she took it. Can I still press charges?
You can certainly still go to police if you wish to, and if a prosecutor elects to file charges, there is still plenty of time for that. Whether or not a prosecutor decides to pursue charges is up to him/her, not to you or to the police. You also are well within the statute of limitations to pursue a civil claim for conversion (theft). Since the amount is less than $10,000 and you are in Maricopa County, you would pursue such a claim in justice court.See question
The difference between a demand letter and notice of claim
A demand letter is a letter sent by someone with a legal claim, or more often that person's attorney, to another person or entity, making a pre-litigation demand for money. A notice of claim is sent to a government entity in advance of filing a lawsuit, stating the nature of the claim and how much it would take to settle it. State law often times includes a short window of time after a claim arises in which a notice of claim must be filed against a government agency or a lawsuit will not be allowed, even if within the statute of limitations.See question

You probably can not get out of it entirely, but you may be able to settle with the IRS through an offer in compromise and/or a payment plan. You may have to sue your former partner and/or go to Tax Court. By the way, it sounds like you originally had an LLC that filed taxes as a partnership, and that was converted to S-Corp filing status with an Operating Agreement. But an attorney would need to review all your documents to advise you.See question

In Arizona, the Secretary of State's office only handles dbas. The entity to check with is the Arizona Corporation Commission. You can look up the business on their Web site, see if it is incorporated or an LLC (more likely) and contact information for the business's member(s) and statutory agent. This may help you get hold of the owner, or former owner, and find out if he even still has your merchandise and if so, is willing to sell it back to you.See question

This case is going to come down to who is more credible with respect to how much work she did for you in August. No, you can not deduct from her pay for extra expenses you went to to replace her at the out-of-state event. You could not do this even if she were a regular full-time employee. You had a contractual relationship with her to answer the phone, and if she did so in August, you have to pay her for August.See question
