If the company advises that they are going to presue criminal charges although you have the funds to pay them back can they still press criminal charges?
The owner of the company is aware that I cashed out some of my retirement. He is hounding me for the funds from that withdrawl (in cash). I have no problem giving him those funds as long as it towards a repayment of what I've taken. I have come up with an estimated amount but he has yet to disclose any amount. He just keeps advising my husband that it is a lot. My husband ask to see a list or to give him an amount. The owner then advised us that he doesnt have to show us anything. He is planning on meeting us tomorrow at the bank to cash the check. He was upset when I advised him of the amount of the check even though it's 80% of what I feel is owned in one big chunk. The question is should I still give up the funds in cash if we both sign a peice of paper that we get noterized stating that the funds are payment towards the debt - even though the amount has not been agreed upon yet?
What type of attorney would we have to retain to get the best results and protection?
