I am concerned about Michigan State Unemployment garnishing

I am concerned about Michigan State Unemployment garnishing my wages. Currently they are taking my federal income tax. They took it for the first time last year, so i did not make a payment at all this year, assuming they would just continue to take my income tax. (I understand now that was not smart). Anyway, I am a New York state resident, I have a written letter prepared to send to them to start a payment plan. I do know this will not stop the income tax from being garnished and I am fine with that. I am more concerned about my employer being notified of my work check being garnished. This a debt from 2013, which at the time I disputed but unfortunately did not make copies of what i submitted as my argument. So now I owe approximately $10000.00.My first question, is can I still go back and fight this? How long do they give you before a legal notice is sent to your employer to garnish your work wages? Can a lawyer from New York state assist in my fighting this or do I need to contact a Michigan state lawyer?

Can anyone tell me what the deal is with "Free + Shipping &

Hi, can anyone tell me what the deal is with "Free + Shipping & Handling" business models, and if it's against FTC guidelines?Let's say I can buy a trinket from China at $0.50. I would then advertise the item Free + $9.99 shipping & handling, where my profit margin is "baked" into the "handling" portion.I see a lot of companies doing this, but I also hear that the FTC has cracked down on these companies. Is this practice illegal?Thanks.

What type of specialized lawyer do we need to fight city

What type of specialized lawyer do we need to fight city hall? I represent a group of property owners who are being very adversely affected by a spot rezoning and big-box property development that our city is pushing. There are probably 2,000 property owners being adversely affected. We are in the beginning phases of this, and are thinking probably a class-action lawsuit will be needed. What is your advice?JA: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: This is in Draper, UtahJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: Not yet. We just had a second "bomb" dropped on us (within one week) about actions the city has been doing behind the scenes without informing us. Their actions and proposals are egregious, and we need to stop this. I believe their may be collusion going on with this project as well.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I can tell the lawyer anything else they need to know.
