Q: 

Collecting a Judgement (MA)

A:  1.  Can I garnish rental income? Do you know where she banks?  That would be a start.  Look at your cancelled rent checks.  Where were they cashed?  At a local bank or some check cashing place?  The later scenario would suggest that she may not have a bank account.  2,  Can I garnish state and Federal tax refunds?  Generally, no. 3, How do I place a lien against her personal property?  I doubt that you can place a lien against personal property, but you can place a lien against real property.  You record your judgement in the county court house in which the property is located.  If she ever refinances or decides to sell, your lien would have to be satisfied.  This strategy is very passive.  Forcing the sale of the...

Q: 

Employee Loan ''Promissary Note'' v Commission''s Due

A:  Your mistake was allowing what was an advance to be couched in terms of a loan (unless you believed that you were owed far less than he gave you). "My employeer in 2006 foreclosed on my property and had me evicted as a renter in Dec. 2006." Er, how was this possible if all you did was borrow money from him? Did you give him a security interest in the house? Did you not bother to talk with a real estate attorney when he started this foreclosure suit? "Can I bring a civil suit against my boss for any type of Tort Violations for punitive damages." I have no idea; you need to talk with a local civil litigation attorney. If he stiffed you on pay I don't see where all your subsequent problems are recoverable--unless...

Q: 

copy rights patten

A:  Here's the US Copyright Office website: http://www.copyright.gov/ It'll tell you everything you need to know about copyright. The fee is 45.00: http://www.copyright.gov/docs/fees.html You'd have to be really, really foolish not to spend the 45.00 to copyright your work. I'd do that right now if I were you. No excuses. Once you get the copyright, one option is to check in with Amazon.com. They have a service where they willl sell your books for you. http://www.amazon.com/ I'm not pushing Amazon. But, consider how big and how popular the company is, it's a good place to start looking. And you probably wouldn't need a peddler's license. Have you tried Random House? I think they still publish the Golden Books series for children. http://www.randomhouse.com/ And...

Q: 

Defamation on a web site

A:  can you be more specific? is this person claiming that you stole some of her written word off a website? This person was removed from a site for plagarism. She then claimed the writing was not hers and said I altered her work in order to have her removed from the site. She wrote this in an email to the Administrator. Is there anything I can do? I am a writer and I can''t have people claiming falsehoods against me. You could get an intellectual property lawyer to help you sue this person… I''ll look into it. Thank you....

Q: 

Wrongful Restraint on Bank Account

A:  "...Please tell me I'm right here..." Well, you're sort of right and sort of wrong. While it is tempting to want to "take someone down" for every little injustice life serves you; it is often better to adopt a different attitude. "I had a judgement placed on me..." This only happens in response to a defaulted (unpaid) liability. If you had paid the debt at any point prior to judgment you wouldn't have had these problems in 2004 or now. "...I sent...a letter asking to remove the judgement..." Creditors, especially collection agencies, typically do not do this. Their concern is getting paid, not cleaning up legal items in Public Records or your credit report. That is, and always will be, your responsibility. You may not have known this at...

Q: 

Can you get emancipated in north carolina if you are pregnant?

A:  You can''t get emancipated JUST because you''re pregnant, if that''s what you''re asking. You have to fulfill the legal requirements of getting emancipated, which includes being able to support yourself without help*, and having a place to live**. In north carolina, you need to be able to convince the court that you are willing and able to take care of yourself, that you have a real need to be emancipated, and also ''(t)he petitioner has the burden of showing by a preponderance of the evidence that emancipation is in the petitioner''s best interests.'' That last one is the real kicker. Your parents are acting reasonably in refusing to allow you to have contact with the father, because they are your guardians. Believe it or not, 16 year olds...

Q: 

Is it legal to have a commissioned salesperson do manual labor that is unrelated to their feild?

A:  You should call your local department of labor in your county or city. You may also contact OSHA due to the car safety issue with the lights and license plates. Your question should really be.......Do I really want to create a turmoil at work for a job that I did in good faith? Remember, you were the one who decided and willingly did this job. Your boss might of asked you with good intentions and not thinking about the whole "is he getting paid for this". If this happens again, I recommend that you ask for some payment upfront and for working equipment such as working lights in a car. You can say no, and if your fired, theres always lawsuits. Good Luck. Normally when something like this is required to be done, the sales person that is on commission is...

Q: 

What can I do? Alaska

A:  salary.com can give you some idea of the wage for your occupation (I assume you are in Anchorage) but this looks at all companies that participate and may not address the internal issue that you discussed. Here''s your choices: 1 Quietly begin the process of finding another job. 2.Ask your boss in a more direct fashion for a raise. This is where the salary.com info may be helpful as you can quote external rates for the same position. 3. Do nothing 4. If you feel the wage problem is based on gender, you have the right to file a complaint with the EEOC. Part of the issue is that you have been there 13 years. Generally you see employees getting normal annual merit increases but to get the big pop, you usually have to leave. My nickle.....try #2 first, if it does not...

Q: 

How to protect the idea of an new computer case standard while searching for an company to produce the cases later on ?

A:  it''s easiest if you can find a way to word the spec in such a way that its real intent will not be obvious. Remember, most people are stupid. They are not going to show intelligence and ingenuity (if they even have any) in deciphering what exactly would such and such software widget be able to do. Case in point - suppose you want to make an online poker playing casino, but asking for such work is either illegal or would lead to the theft of your associated business ideas. Well, fine, ask for a paid online chat room with a trivial Flash whiteboard component. When everything is done, you can just take this whiteboard thingy and modify it to behave like a poker game. posted 5 months ago James C. R. ...
