I'd like to provide a service to my clients where they can

I'd like to provide a service to my clients where they can upload a mailing list with names and addresses, and then my system finds the mobile phone number associated with each name, and then my system sends a pre-recorded message straight to each mobile phone number's voicemail box. The mobile phone does NOT ring, it simply alerts the recipient to a new voicemail which they can then listen to.What rules and liabilities do I need to be aware of before doing this? How can I make this legal (in light of the telemarketing laws), and eliminate my liability?

Thank you time. Any advice you have would be a tremendous

Thank you for your time. Any advice you have would be a tremendous help right now. I have a dear friend who is dying. He has about 100,000 in savings. He would like to donate that to a professional organization that has been in development for the last 3 yrs. The organization has not fully incorporated. It will be a 501c6 associated with a larger 501c3. The org has most things in place for the organization e.g. bylaws, board, president, treasure, fee structure, committees developed etc. My friend would like to make sure the funds are used for a specific program development. The professional organization is open to this. So my questions are:1. Is it possible to have this money donated to the organization prior to being fully formed? If so what type of legal help would we need. The organization is tiny and has limited ability to fund legal advice until we start getting members.2. Is it possible to make some specific criteria or a process for the distribution of funds so that it matches my friends values and vision?3. Should the org make a quick move to incorporate to be able to accept the donation? It is close to having this set up any way.4. Would it be possible to have the parent 501c3 be given the money with a binding agreement that the funds will be distributed to the 501c6 when the corporation is formed under the agreed upon guidelines for distribution? If so what type of legal help would be needed?5. What process should we put in place to assure that my friend's visions are understood well enough that they can be carried out?Thank you!!! I appreciate your help!

My business partner and I operate a Nevada LLC with just the

My business partner and I operate a Nevada LLC with just the two of us as members. He is an Australian citizen, so as a result we have to pay federal withholding tax, etc which takes a big toll on my partner's cash flow throughout the year. He wants to be removed from the LLC as a member and just be paid as an independent contractor so he doesn't have to deal with tax filing in the US, etc. Searching online, it looks like he needs to file a certificate of resignation with the state. I also read we have to update our company registration but not until our annual report is due (which is May 31st).The desired outcome is that my partner be removed from the LLC ASAP and not have to pay these US taxes for 2016 and instead be a contractor/supplier.My question is: what is the exact process of doing this in Nevada for our LLC to achieve this. Our accountant advised we speak to an attorney in NV who can get the paperwork in order but we (like many) are short on cash to pay for something like this so we want to do it ourselves with the guidance of a good Samaritan here on JustAnswer who understands how to do this.Thank you in advance!-Levi
