My ex-husband and I owned a business, a corporation based in

My ex-husband and I owned a business, a corporation based in New Mexico. A few years ago he began working in Texas outside of Dallas due to the lack of work (construction) in New Mexico. Although I went down frequently to help out, I never moved full-time to TX. About a year and a half ago he met a woman and became involved with her. She immediately began to take over control of the company and his life. We got divorced (finalized Nov. 30, 2015) and as part of the settlement, I signed over my 50% ownership of the corporation to my ex.Initially he was paying all of our bills, as well as paying me alimony, but several months ago he began saying he was broke. He began to suspect that this woman who'd taken over his business was taking money from the corporation but couldn't be sure. About a month ago I finally convinced him to get all of the bank statements, credit card statements, etc. so that I could prepare the books for our accountant so that he could file our 2015 corporate taxes. The upshot is that between making personal charges on the business credit card and taking cash withdraws from the business account (yes, he did put her on the account), she stole almost $300,000! My ex-husband is now completely broke, which of course affects my financial situation and has a credit card with a $60,000 balance on it. He is still living with this woman but wants to move back to New Mexico and start over with me. I realize that I probably can't sue this woman, but I would think that he can. What do you think?

I already asked this question yesterday. But I do not see it

I already asked this question yesterday. But I do not see it online. I therefore repeat it today.To what extent is the insurer of a Florida Condo Association liable under the Directors and Officers Liability Policy for libel?Scenario: Director A libels Director B. A use B. B turns to the Insurer to defend. Does the insurer:1. Review the matter to determine whether the suit is justified before defending?2. Defend anyway and wait for a verdict?3. If and when the case is lost, is the Insurer liable for damages? (That seems insane)Logic would dictate that item # 1 above should prevail. Or at worst the insurer should not be liable for any libel award.

I signed a promissory note for 250k Line of credit. Did not

I signed a promissory note for 250k Line of credit. Did not pay when demanded I do and was threatened with fore closure. The only problem is that i havent seen a single dime of it and there is no record of such draw. The guy says I maxed out the line of credit for 250k. The bills have not been paid and bank in the red by 70001. not employee but "partner"2. Its possible that he had me sign cross collaterilazation for 250K3. He wants to forclose because i didnt start paying him in july but has failed to produce wire transfer, deposit slips or any other form of evidence to prove there was any money ever exchanged. Not only was there never any money but all the bills were unpaid for 3 months, Bank accounts over drawn and lawsuits against me for non payment of debt. Is this possible a case for the attorney generals office? Oh and by the way the lawyer is involved in this because he didnt ask for proof of lawful lien before he filed it.

I would like to know what I can put on a restraining order

I would like to know what I can put on a restraining order application here in California to impress a judge to grant one. My wife is co-trustee of my families trust, and living in my family home. She has imported many gangsters, including her son and his friends who are stealing from my home and destroying it. They are involved in internet fraud. All are felons. I left due to all the criminal activity and hostility towards me trying to get them out. I have hired a service to evict them. She is currently on a trip to Colorado, so I would like to present her with the fact that she does not live there anymore upon her return, and finally clean the mess up. There is hundreds of cubic yards of horse s*** in the back yard. She will not help remove any of these people and has even moved more in.....her ex. I left about 3 years ago, as there is too much crime. They broke into my garage, and were manufacturing automatic assault rifle parts and stealing my tools and destroying my only stronghold left....the garage! They are killing all the vegetation etc. The ceiling has collapsed in one area, and no one there will fix it. A divorce would be devastating, as she has embezzled a great deal of my families investments and even allowed her son to gamble with the investment accounts, embezzling much himself. I just want them and her out. Getting her out seems to be the problem, but I think if I could get a restraining order against her, she could not return in a few days. WHAT CAN I SAY TO IMPRESS THE JUDGE TO ACTUALLY GRANT A RESTRAINING ORDER? Obviously this little red-head is not a physical threat to me.... herself, except in her running of a crime house. The law seems to favor the squatters and her friends before order and fairness. HELP!

I have an interesting series of questions to ask. First the

Good Afternoon,I have an interesting series of questions to ask.First the background;I was convicted on one count conspiracy to commit bank fraud for which I was sentenced to 41 months in prison and ordered to pay 700K+ in restitution. I have served my sentence and am now on probation. I am paying $200 a month on that restitution amount. I have never missed a payment.My former business partners testified against me. They are now embroiled in a federal bankruptcy case stemming from their behavior during the time that my crime (supposedly) was committed.An involuntary bankruptcy proceeding was initiated a few years ago, shortly after my sentencing. This proceeding also contains an adversarial proceeding initiated by the bankruptcy trustee in which she lays out a federal RICO allegation. One of the predicates within the RICO allegation is that my former business partners lied to the creditor (bank) about my behavior which in turned caused the bank to sue me and my federal bank fraud case to be initiated. The allegation is that my former business partners knew the bank would pass along their false statements to the justice department thus hindering the justice department's investigation as well as the bank's potential recovery of assets. There are (at least) eight other predicates called out within the adversarial proceeding.I maintained that I had no criminal intent and I did not benefit from the conspiracy. There were no other “conspirators” indicted.The case has been litigated in federal bankruptcy court and the judge has the case under advisement since December 19, 2015. The trustee expects a ruling soon.I can answer any questions you may have in order to clarify this further.My first question isIf the judge decides against my former business partners and all creditors are made whole do I still owe restitution?
