I am a web designer and created a website, graphic material

I am a web designer and created a website, graphic material (primarily a logo), Facebook page, and email list for my husband's business. There was no contract. The domain name for the website is the same as his business name. He has a sole-proprietor, no trademark. The domain name is ***** ***** my name. The website is hosted on my server. I registered a copyright on the logo in my name.Prior to building the website, I paid $5,000 towards his business start-up fees, as well as $2,000 towards his immigration application. He promised to repay these amounts. I created the website to help him establish himself and our verbal agreement is that once his business began to earn money, he would repay me.He has been earning money for 10 months and he did not repay me.We separated 6 weeks ago.He will not agree to signing our separation agreement, which partly outlines repayments of his debt to me, until I give him sole ownership of the website and marketing material. I have asked for payment towards the website before giving it to him.His lawyer says they will take me to court unless I give him sole ownership of the website. Am I obligated to give it over? What are my rights (copyright, domain name ownership, etc)? Is there a Family Law loophole of which I am not aware?

On December 15, 2015, the IEAU received its DOL stamp. In

On December 15, 2015, the IEAU received its DOL stamp. In early 2016, the founder of IEAU started to create local chapters to fall under the IEAU (it's mother union)One of the chapters, APAG, held an election for officers, and the IEAU founder appointed other officers, for offices for which there were no nominees. On June 6. We were sworn in, and we submitted our bylaws to DOL, and have since received our own stamp.We are veterans within our industry, with little to no previous union experience.In late July, it became apparant that the founder of IEAU, was operating outside of her rights as the founder. When the APAG officers started to reject her demands, and attempt to move forward to build a stronger structure, the IEAU founder started to threaten us, and arbitrarily claim that we are dismissed from office. She has contacted us numerous times, to the point of harassment, INSISTING that we must sign an unsound contract, in order to remain officers for the positions we've already been sworn-in to.Is it usual for the FOUNDER of a mother union, to contact OFFICERS of a local chapter, and insist they sign a contract in order to remain an officer?

I am a Special Education teacher at Rose Elementary School.

My name is Pham ******. I am a Special Education teacher at Rose Elementary School. I am writing this letter in asking you for help what to do with ****** Motors, so they will live up to their contract in Toyota Sienna Conversion Purchase Form on behalf for Mai ******, a Vietnamese parent of Nhat ****** who has Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. We would like ****** Motors to install the second passenger seat in the back, check out the balance of the van, and return all the unused car seats of the van ($3000.00) as according to the contract.Mai is a single mom with two children 8 and 5 years old. She has limited of English. She left her home and all her loved ones in Viet Nam and came to the United States of America where her son Nhat would have better opportunities in life and education. Nhat is her oldest son with Duchenne Musuclar Dystrophy, a genetic disorder, the lack of protein Dystrophin causes fibre damage in the muscle which makes the child cripple. The expectancy for this child is about 20 yrs.Two years ago Nhat could stand up and move around, but now he paralyses from the hip down and totally dependent in the wheel chair. His legs are crippled, but his mind is bright and he is full of life. He loves to learn, explores the world, and experiences new things like other children. Mai knows of Nhat's desires and dreams, and the only way she can make his wishes come true is getting a Van Ramp for the car to transport him to the park, swimming lesson, scouting, mall, restaurant, therapy, doctor, school, art program, movie night at school, etc ...With her low income, she barely meets the needs of food and housing in their daily life. She struggled physically to carry him in and out of the car at least 10 times /day. She makes sure his Oxygen mask on him during the night, and massages his legs to prevent the cramp up of muscles two or three times during the day and his sleep. Mai is exhausted mentally alone in fighting for her son's health and special education. Realizing how bless I am, I helped her to obtain the Van Ramp from ****** Motors.On Feb 2016, Mike ******, the sale man of ****** Motor came to draw up the contract that the back row seating will have 2 passenger seats, and all the seats of the car that are not being used in the car will return to Mai. If anything is not rightly done, ****** Motor will send us to any nearest local of van ramp, and ****** Motor will pay for the cost.On April 7, the van was conversed with van ramp returned to Mai. The wheelchair did not fit in the van. Finally Ian ******, the sale man, came junked out one of the passenger seat to fit the wheel chair. Mr. ****** assured us ******* Motor would send out another passenger seat to fit and balance the car, and also a replaced clip to hold onto the wheels of the wheel chair, and all other seats not being used would return to Mai. A month went by, I called Mike ******* to full fill the contract, and he gave me the name of his boss Ryan ****** ***********, and asked me to deal with Mr. ******. I called and texted him many times and also to Mike ******, but they did not call me back as if they have washed their hands from us.Nhat is poor because his legs are crippled, and he has only short time on this life. Mai is poor financially and no English. ****** Motor does not full fill the contract is the form of stealing from the poor and needy.I believe this is an Interstate Fraud. Please help me with the steps that I must do, so I can recover the money for Mai, and also make sure the van is in safe condition to transport Nhat.Thanks,

I was told by another company that they pay their employees an extra $1000 bonus at the end of the year to enforce the non compete/non disclosure. I am in the repossession business and want to have my office staff set up so if they try to quit they cant try to take any of my clients with them.

Lease question...My wife's business signed a 5-year lease

Lease question...My wife's business signed a 5-year lease five years ago in March. In May, the landlord "spoke" with my wife about renewal. There were no terms discussed. None regarding length of a renewal nor dollar figures. Nothing written was presented. The landlord asked if they intended to renew. My wife's response was "we don't plan on going anywhere any time soon." Her response was NOT "oh yes, we will be here for five more years." Now the landlord says the lease renewed "without notice", however she says "terms have changed" yet my wife had NO verbal confirmation of any changes let alone any written/signed contract. How is "we don't plan on going anywhere any time soon" binding with NO terms etc? Any help appreciated!!
