Family attorney...It has been awhile since we spoke. My

Hi Family attorney...It has been awhile since we spoke. My granddaughter's father took her illegally to Texas last summer and refused to bring her back. He has petitioned the court to terminate my guardianship, and I have asked them to have my granddaughter returned to me and have his visitation rights terminated. Tomorrow I have to go in to the Probate Court for a Case Management Conference. Since I do not have an attorney I will be expected to know what this is all about, and to appear as my own attorney. Are you familiar with these proceedings? My granddaughter and her dad will also attend. I think my granddaughter is conflicted by this ordeal. One day she says she wants to stay in Texas and the next she says things like she wish she had not let this thing go this far. I am still pushing for him to be punished for contempt of his court ordered custody limitations. With the time he has kept her illegally I think he is guilty of a felony with penalties of 5-15 years! I dont desire this to happen to him though...I just want my granddaughter back

I recently left a company that sold products online to

I recently left a company that sold products online to customers. One of the vendors that supplied products for us to re-sell to customers happened to be owned by my wife. I ran that department of the business and owned the P&L for the business, and using my wife as a vendor saved the company tens of thousands of dollars compared to using other vendors. Company leadership was aware that we were doing business with her company, though they did not know how much markup she was including in her costs. I'd not shared what went into her pricing structure with them either, other than show them much it was saving the company compared to another vendor.Upon leaving, my old company is saying that they are only obligated to pay for the actual cost of the merchandise and not any markup to cover my wife's time and effort to procure and manage those products, not to mention fronting several thousands of dollars for this merchandise. All of these orders had Purchase Orders written at her sale price, which I agreed to (and was permitted to agree to because of my role owning the P&L for that line of business). Many of these orders are months old now and were received and shipped out to their customers, yet they still haven't paid anything (even partial payment) for the products that were agreed to in the purchase order.They have asked me to provide the actual cost of the product so that they can pay that amount only, but considering the total number of products they've benefited from, that means they are trying to steal many thousands of dollars from my wife's business, blaming a conflict of interest on my part as the reason they may do so. There is no way they're entitled to those products at cost after using my wife's business to get the products to them. Are the PO's that she has legally binding since I agreed to them on behalf of the company, to the company benefit, and that were delivered as promised? What can she do about this?

I formed a LLC with 2 partners and am managing the partnership in CA in 2016. We are running an after-school center. Business is still in early stage, not break-even yet. Now me and another partner want to become quiet partners due to many reasons. The remaining partner will take over the managing role. We had a very simple partnership agreement which outlined who does what, investment, and profit and loss share percentage. Didn't specify exit terms and decision making process. What do we need to amend upon the existing partnership agreement? Don't want to add too many to scare people off, don't wanna add too little that doesn't protect our rights as passive partners either.
