Legal Questions

  • My attorney settled the case by forging my signature on release. What do I do?

Talk to your new attorney about correcting what happened. If the attorney was not authorized to sign the stipulation, it could probably be undone.

  • Can a NYC supreme court judge order a party to sign papers that would increase that party's debt and liability during a divorce?

The short answer is yes. A divorce court can require it. Is it proper in your case? You need to discuss all of those circumstances with your divorce lawyer. Don't have one? Wisdom suggests getting one.

  • How do I transfer assets and liabilities between affiliated companies?

You are transferring assets. Unless there's an exchange of value (payment from the acquirer, ) depending on the circumstances, the transfer could later be challenged as a fraudulent conveyance, as to the transferor’s creditors. It's best to discuss and the transaction with a lawyer and document it with an agreement, to avoid that problem.

  • What should i do if my bank blocks my online account access until 91-page terms and agreements document is signed?

It seems that the bank is looking to change the terms of your relationship. You need to know the terms of your existing relationship. It may permit their conduct, it may not. Consider reading the new agreement to see if there's anything offensive. Yes, it's 91 pages.

  • Regarding Bankruptcy- it stays city action regarding property violations, correct?

If the hearing is about a violation threatening the public well being, it's not stayed. If it's about collecting money from you it is stayed. Do not default on the hearing, thinking the stay is in effect. Make sure it is.

  • Is the way I am signing documents for my Inc small business the proper way to reduce liability?

Indicating that you're signing as as officer, not individually, helps. However, the agreement's terms govern. Always read and understand the agreement.

  • Will I be responsible for a c corp inc company's debts (incl. IRS) as a shareholder of the company (not owner)?

Ordinarily, if your only involvement in the corporation is owning stock, you're protected. There may be tax debt (sales tax and withholding) that you might be responsible for. Also, if the company has debt which it cant pay, you may lose your investment. You need to find out more about the company's problems and why someone thinks you owe money. As far as a "kick ass" letter is concerned, subtlety can be more devastating. Simply asking for the information about the company and why you're being bothered may have them back off. Asking to see the company's books and records, so you can understand the company's problems may downright instill fear.
