Tenant does not have renters insurance. Who pays for the repairs to the tub? Its my understanding that if the tenant is negligent (accidents included) they must pay for the repairs.

We are planning to start a staffing agency for veterans. In

We are planning to start a staffing agency for veterans. In a nutshell, we will hire them and place them in a job queue. When hired, they will be put on company health insurance. Some of them will suffer from addiction. Our plan is to send the veterans to treatment before placing them, their completion of the program being a requisite for job placement after.We have marketing contracts with treatment facilities which pay us a flat monthly fee to refer clients to them for treatment. Any money paid to us for marketing goes directly into a bank account and will solely be used for veterans' continuing care. The company will be a L3C.

In March I was admitted to a rehabilitation center for

Hello, in March I was admitted to a rehabilitation center for alcohol use and mental illness. I stayed there for a month and while I was there was tested for pregnancy, drugs in my system, psychological disorders, etc. I came out negative for my pregnancy test, but now 7 months later I am in my third trimester pregnant. They told me I wasn't getting me period because of the stress I was going through in life and being there. Now I have to follow through with this pregnancy and go through the physical and emotional troubles. I also am a full time student and I work and I have to take time off of that as well. This never would have happened to me if they told me I was pregnant, but I didn't worry about it in these past 7 months because they told me my missed periods were from "stress, stopping drinking, and med changes". What can I do about this? Thank you.

I loaned my car to my sister-in-law on the condition that

I loaned my car to my sister-in-law on the condition that she pay for the increased insurance ($25), does not damage it, does not do anything illegal with it (like drugs), come help my mother out, and return it immediately if we needed it. This was all a verbal contract and she has had it for about four months. I requested it back because I was having trouble with the car I drive and gave her as much notice as I could, about 14 hours of notice. She never responded. I notified her when I headed out to retrieve it and she never responded. I got it home and within an hour she had come over and took it out of my driveway. When I had it I noticed it was damaged, she had not been paying the money or helping my mother, and seems to be doing drugs (making indications of past behavior and talking being able to do weed and alcohol to my brother (separated)). My brother indicated she talked to him about it the night before so she got the message. The deputies the police sent out say it is a civil matter. Isn't a verbal contract as good as writing in this case? The second I took it back that contract should have ended and for her to take it again would require a new contract (which was not created)? Would a ranking officer be able to make a different call (the two deputies (two separate calls) were worried about their boss being mad). It has been a few days now.

I worked for a private duty free store located in my home

Hello,I worked for a private duty free store located in my home country - Israel, about 10 years ago as an affiliate manager. We sold tobacco, alcohol and more to diplomats residing temporarily in Israel. That license allowed the owner (somehow) to send tobacco and other merchandise to private customers in the U.S. The merchandise would be inspected by Israeli Tax and customs authorities before leaving the country. I assumed all was legit.I quit that job about 6 years ago due to low appreciation and paycheck expectations after 4 years on the job. My replacement (Jonathan) stepped in and did the exact same work including drop shipping (having a contact in the US to receive all the packages, store and ship them).When Jonathan went to visit his brother in the States this year, he was arrested! the 3 charges:conspiracy to commit wire fraudconspiracy to commit money launderingconspiracy to commit importation of tax free cigarettesHe spent nearly 6 months in custody awaiting the trial of the drop shippers and others involved in this operation. They released him after this time after he was willing to testify against the people involved and agree to a lie detector test.While he was in custody - they asked him about the owner (the true criminal) but they had nothing on him since he never included his name in any of the business documents. Then, they asked about me...They knew who I was, my FB and linkedin page etc.Now, I am scared to leave my country. I won't risk traveling to the U.S. any longer. But what about other countries that have extradition treaties with the U.S.?I am getting married soon and wish to travel to Thailand for my honeymoon but scared to do so.I consulted with a few local lawyers and even the lawyer that handled Jonathans' case in the U.S.He told me that the trial is over and its unlikely that they are still pursuing me but no one can really know...My concern is that some of the drop shippers were in a European country and agents were sent to arrest them as well for the trial.So... I am worried about Thailand in that sense and require your expert opinion.
