Q. What kind of tax returns does a small business have to file?
A: That will depend on the corporate structure.
Q. My wife and I just got served with papers for a foreclosure on a house that her sister and deceased father own.
A: You and your wife have no liability for this property. However, it is standard procedure in a mortgage foreclosure complaint, to name all people who either do or may possibly have an interest in a property. If you are really concerned, you should set up an in person consultation with an experienced mortgage foreclosure defense attorney.
Q. deed is under uncle's name until I pay off mortgage. Can he claim a loss of investment? it is listed as his 2nd home..
A: There is an insufficient factual basis to answer your question, so please rewrite it and provide more details.
Q. If i moved out of NJ 6 months ago, but without father consent, does NJ still have jurisdiction,
A: Technically you have kidnapped the child. You cannot leave the state of NJ without a Court Order granting you permission. You really need to consult with a NJ matrimonial(family law) attorney. Good luck.
Q. Can text messages be used in dv court in nj to prove im violent and not safe to be around unborn child nj
A: Yes text messages can be used if a proper foundation is laid, to introduce them into evidence. In a Domestic Violence Trial, the Court will always conduct a hearing to determine if the issuance of a Final Restraining Order is justified or not. Having evidence to support your position is nice, but that does not mean that your evidence will be admissible. Trying to represent yourself in Court is a bad idea. Not only are you emotionally involved, but you are not a trained attorney. You do not know the Court Rules, Rules of Evidence, case law, nor are you trained how to handle a legal case, especially if litigation is involved. However, if you do not retain counsel, and the opposing party does have counsel, you will could get slaughtered (figuratively speaking). You need to have an in person consultation with an experienced matrimonial attorney, who has extensive domestic violence trial experience. Your questions and concerns cannot adequately be dealt with in this forum. You need the best attorney you can afford, do not let geographic considerations be a factor in your choice of an attorney. Good luck.
Q. Need help with divorce, no money, I am unemployed, husband controls everything. Are there any pro bono lawyers in NJ?
A: Contact legal services, the local Bar Association and local law school legal clinics. I am sorry you are going through such an ordeal. Good luck.
Q. I've lived in my apartment for 20yrs, the house was just sold and the old owner didn't turn over my security deposit,
A: You need to consult a landlord-tenant attorney.
Q. My girlfriend has a double nationality. In the other country she is begining a divorce process that takes long time
A: You will definitely have problems, including marriage fraud and bigamy among others. Immigration is a very complex area of law. It is a lot more than merely filling out forms. You need to retain an immigration attorney to handle all immigration proceedings. This prevents errors that can sometimes prove costly and may even be irreversible. You should always seek to obtain the best attorney that you can afford and not let geographic restrictions stand in the way. Some immigration attorneys will charge a consultation fee, however those that do so, will give full credit if you retain their law firm. Do not let geographic restrictions prevent you from obtaining the best possible attorney. Pick the best lawyer you can find and remember one rule: a good lawyer is generally never cheap, and a cheap lawyer is generally never good so don't choose based on price.
Q. Can a repairman (electrician, plumber, etc) bill you an arbitrary trip charge after the visit without telling you first?
A: Principles are nice, but seeking legal remedies for them, especially in this case are NOT going to be cost effective.
