I am starting an online website in Arizona where will provide multimedia training for people on how to better their resume, interview more effectively, and find a new job. I will have online job postings for job searching and I will also be offering resume review, interview practice, and other consulting services for a fee.Looking at ARS 23-521 I can't tell for sure if I need to be licensed as an employment agent. I think I meet the criteria for B4 and don't need one. If at all possible I would prefer not to go through the hassle of getting a license but can if need be.

My mother in law is 96 years old. She fell recently breaking

My mother in law is 96 years old. She fell recently breaking her leg and hip and is now living in a nursing home, The Woodlands Heath Care and Rehab. Center, located in The Woodlands, Texas.In order to get her into the facility she had to forfeit all material items and funds. She complied with this except for a car she owns. It is a 1999 Cadillac, it is worth about $3500, according to Kelly Blue Book. I bought the car for her when my father in law passed so she could get around without trouble.She is having health problems, falling down, fainting, low blood pressure etc. and I do not think she should be driving in her condition. She insists she is going to get well and start driving again. The car is title is in her name but I have a lien on the car.The reason I put a lien on the car is so when she passed it would come to me and my wife so we could sell it and get some return on the purchase price and not be liable while she is diving.The problem is she will not sign the title over to me. She wants it parked in the nursing home parking lot so when she feels like driving somewhere it will be available to her. Her son has a power of attorney for her but will not sign the car over to me. I think he wants it for his son.The questions in all this are;1. Is my mother in law allowed to own the car without the Social Security knowing about it?2. Can her son sign her name on the title and license it in his name without my permission?3. Where can I find the rules and regulations for the Social Security accepting a patient into the program?

My daughter recently move from Puerto Rico to Texas. We

My daughter recently move from Puerto Rico to Texas. We tried to register her car that was shipped from Puerto Rico (a U.S. Territory) and the TXDOT is requesting a US Dot form HS-7 to complete the process. Apparently this form is a release requirement for vehicles imported from a foreign country but not for US Territories. The moving company responsible for the shipment confirmed that the HS-7 is not required. I will go back this Monday to try to register the car, but without any written documentation to show them that the form is waived, it will be very difficult to prove the point. I tried finding information on several US Government websites without any success. Can you help me?JA: What state is this in? And how old is the car?Customer: Texas. The car is 5 years oldJA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: Not yetJA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?Customer: I don't think of any additional information. I found a Fact Sheet from Pennsylvania Dot that mentioned something about US territories being exempt from the imports regulations.

I purchased a home almost 3 months ago, and unfortunately

Hello,I purchased a home almost 3 months ago, and unfortunately things took a turn for the worse when business slowed dramatically. With loans and credit cards going to fall into delinquency in a few months, im considering chapter 7 if i cannot turn things around.I Currently owe roughly 100k between credit cards and unsecured loans. For my mortgage i owe around 298k and my house is worth ~350k. i understand CA (the state where my home is) has a homestead exemption in chapter 7 that protects up to 75k in equity, but it appears there is a time frame in which you must own the house. Since i have only lived here for a few months, does that mean my equity in the house will be gone and ill be forced to sell if i do a chapter 7? Do i have any other options? Is chapter 13 worth considering?

I live in Paso Robles, Ca. and the is an amphitheater about 5 miles from my house. I can hear the music from their concerts in my bedroom even though I've put memory foam in my window, run a fan to block noise, and I also wear earplugs on the nights of their concerts. They say they have an exemption to normal noise ordinances and can hold as many concerts per year as they wish. They say that as long as the sound does not exceed 100 decibels and the concerts are over by 11 p.m., even on weeknights, they are within their rights. What can be done to make them lower the volume or at least make them end at a more reasonable hour, especially on weeknights where I have to get up early and go to work?

I have filed for a restraining order against my neighbor for

I have filed for a restraining order against my neighbor for harassment against my wife and I. the harassment, although include several forms of harassment, was mainly loud music. The harasser tried to get my request dismissed as a SLAPP. That was denied. He has filed an appeal to the SLAPP ruling. His opening brief claims that 1) because he is legally growing medical marijuana that he is protected by by the right to farm law/ordnance because it protects farmers against suits regarding noise. and 2 that the whole restraining order "scheme" (his word) is unconstitutional because of the restrictions that it imposes. His brief sounds so ridicules that I am inclined to not even respond to it and save the fees associated with filing a response. I cannot believe any judge would read the brief and think that he has a point. would that be a mistake?JA: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: CaliforniaJA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: yes, my lawyer says there is a small chance that the appeal would be granted but wants to file a response.JA: What advice did they give you?Customer: he wants to file a response. verry expensiveJA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?Customer: The harasser has also been sited for disturbing the peace for his loud music. Twice! He also is facing contempt charge for violating the protective order imposed by the court over the disturbing the peace charge. Twice! four charges all together. He has been trying to have the public defender thrown off because,he claims, the public defender really has no motivation to put on a viable defense. he is scheduled to go to jury trial early to mid September.
