  • Can this person (relative) be evicted who one spouse wants to cohabitate with and the another doesnt

    Certain relative of one spouse lives in a jointly owned home without the consent of another spouse and is a cause of lot of agony .

    Pamela’s Answer

    If both spouses own the home, then either can allow someone to live there. The spouses need to work something out to resolve the problem. If the spouses can't work something out, maybe they shouldn't continue to be spouses anymore? Perhaps family counselling would help, or mediation?

  • What is the best option to make a deposit interest that has no risk and tax-exempt?

    I am currently making a fixed-term bank deposit but receive 1099 tax form every year. Is there an option to earn the deposit interest without risk and tax-exempt? Thank you for your answer.

    Pamela’s Answer

    Your bank is going to send you a 1099 for the interest it pays you on your deposited money, so it's not tax exempt. Not sure what you mean by "no risk."

    Pamela’s Answer

    This is a business decision, not a legal question, and the only way to approach the query of whether this is a good business decision or not is to know a lot more, such as how much the debt is, what the payments are, what your income and other debts are, whether you're employed, what accounts are dropping form your rcedit report, etc. etc. etc. Whether you're considering filing for BK or not, it could be that that's the best option for you.

    You might to seek credit counselling about this and your other debts.

  • If I cosign on an apartment and the tenant is arrested, can I be charged criminally?

    Cosigning for an apartment

    Pamela’s Answer

    No, not if you're not par of what got the tenant arrested. But you could be held liable for whatever the tenant owes on the lease, subject to the landlord's duty to "mitigate" damages by finding a replacement tenant if this tenant is in jail or gets evicted beacuse they violated the lease.

    Co-signing a contract for someone you suspect is likely to get into trouble is an very unwise thing to do.

  • Is this legal? It doesn't say that in the contract

    I quit a sales job but had a deal still pending. I signed the contract and made the sale. The company is saying that since the production manager had to go out to the job site to visit with the customer he gets all the commission.

    Pamela’s Answer

    It depends what your contract with your employer said, amd how it defined "sale" and how it defined when you were entitled to commmision a sale.

    Review that, and review your contract's dispute resolution provisions.

    If you find the contract language confusing, you may need to see your own businss litigator for help.

  • How should we execute this lawsuit?

    A home show company canceled our exhibition 2 days before arrival. Which we closed everything for. Which caused us loses in the short and long run. We are from Las Vegas. In need for a lawyer that can take this case. Thanks, in advance.

    Pamela’s Answer

    Lost profits are difficult to get damages for, so your damages are something you need to discuss with your own litigator.

    If the home show company's in Denver, you need a lawyer licensed in CO. But if you had a written agreement with this company spelling out things like breach and how disputes get resolved, review that and see what it says about what state's law governs and where and how disputes get resolved.

    Then you can use Avvo's Find a Lawyer search function to look for a business litigator licensed in the state whose law governs and where disputes have to be resolved.

  • What should I do for her to pay?

    Someone rear ended me and said she didn't have insurance so we exchanged numbers and I took pictures of the cars. We didn't call the cops and I let her go now she doesn't want to pay

    Pamela’s Answer

    If you have uninsured motorist coverage, this is what it's for.

    If you sue her in Small Claims court, you may end up with a judgment you can't collect.
