Q: 

My company was victimised by a fraudulent accountant and I am not sure what to do?

A:  From what you write you would seem to have had some knowledge of this persons irregularities for some time?, Go to the inland revenue, and the police as there could be an infringement in law against this person. But whatever you do be prepared that you yourself, will have to answer some very detailed questions by these two depts officials How will not reporting it keep you in the black? If he is damaging your company, keeping quiet will only allow him to do it to more people. If you are prepared to involve Inland Revenue, without the support of a circumstantial audit, you already have significant documentation. Regardless you will still need another firm to assess the entire system. Your first paragraph seems to be more fraud than tax issues. You were only a victim to the point you became...

Q: 

Forced Homeowners Policy

A:  What is a "forced placed" homeowner's policy? "Can I be my own General Contractor and hire licensed and insured subs to do the work?" I suppose so, but who knows what the terms of your policy and any mortgage might be. Have you read your policy? You are always free to get your own estimates. So did you allow a policy to lapse or something? That's normally the way it would work. I presume you are named as a primary insured party vs. additional insured (otherwise, I can't imagine that you'd automatically be in the driver's seat). "A force placed policy is when the mortgage company places insurance on the property, so the policy covers the general interest of the mortgage company and not necessarily that of the homewoner." Then you...

Q: 

Question on someone elses patent

A:  That patent has expired.  Before 1995, all patents expired 17 years from the date of issue. To get your own patent, you have to add some non-obvious thing to the collective public knowledge.  That collective knowledge includes everthing in the 1973 patent, so you have to add some non-obvious thing to that patent and everything else that''s known.   There is no set percentage of difference that''s required.  The difference just has to be non-obvious. Regards. Thanks for the quick reply, But what does a "non-obvious" difference mean?  If i use a different sprocket gear than he uses, is that a "non-obvious" difference?  ...

Q: 

I hate my brother how can I convince my parents to put him for adoption?

A:  Well, I learned from experience when my sister was about 5 that you can''t convince your parents to do this. Your brother has been around for 8 years: your parents are probably sort of attached to him, even if you aren''t. So, stop hurting him, stop making him cry, avoid him as much as possible if he''s really a pest, and eventually, you might even start him to like him. It may take a few decades, but my sister turned out O.K., though I''d never have believed it back when she was 5. As the mother of four children, I have to smile. I agree with the other posters that say to stop torturing him. You know how much your brother digs you? You may not realize how much he just wants to be like you. Jeesh OP, if you were smart, (no offense since your still just a kid), but you gotta learn how to...

Q: 

How can I get my truck back? Friend has stopped making payments

A:  Check all friends and family and if need be have a private detective locate him. You can take the truck and/or sue in small claims --when you find him. I just went through (almost) the exact same thing you described. My name remained on the title as the lien holder. When the woman I sold my vehicle to quit her job and disappeared out of state, it took me 2 years to find the vehicle and I immediately repossessed it. It cost me a lot of money (including using a PI) to find it and make enough repairs on it to get it back to my house. I tried to sell it again, but didn''t get one single bite. I filed a small claims lawsuit against her in the state where she now lives (Idaho) which is almost 400 miles from my house. My hearing was yesterday and this is what happened: The judge dismissed my...

Q: 

How can i sponser my wife visa in UAE?

A:  You need to talk to the immigration authorities. I was born in the UAE, and I still have family there. As far as I know, you just need to have proof of marriage. I would strongly urge you to call the UAE immigration services! Good luck! First, read your employment contract. If it stipulates you are on a ''single-status assignment'' you cannot get a visa for your wife. You will not be allowed to bring in any dependents with such status. Next, how much longer is your contract? Things do not necessarily move quickly, and there''s no point spending so much time, effort, money, if she won''t join you before the contract expires, or close to expiration. Do you have at least a year or more remaining on your contract? How can the consulate give you a certified affidavit when your marriage is not...

Q: 

How can i convince my Fiance?

A:  The next time he accuses you tell him you have already told him the truth and if he cannot accept that than you two cannot go forward in your relationship. Tell him you realize now how messed up the situation was and why he is mad but nothing happened. Promise him that you will not put yourself in any situation like that ever again where questions of your faithfulness could be brought up. Tell him you want to move forward and put this behind y''all and ask him if he agrees and wants to do so also. If he agrees then you two move on if he doesn''t ask him what more he expects from you. If he says he needs a break give him one its ok for couples to spend time apart if it doesn''t work out there will be someone else down the road who will. Its better than living with him having the past thrown...
