Quick question I somewhat asked before. I worked for my mom 12-17. Kicked me out the house and I started my own face painting business. I have done many high end events with her business . When creating my own business she threaten me with saying we had a verbal agreement that I cannot open a competing business in our city. 1) we never had a contract anything 2) I was a minor and left due to being kicked out before 18.Next would be about the events I have done with her company, when creating my website she saw I listed events I did with her company. She told me this was illegal and will press charges if I do not take down. So to appease her I took it down .I recently have had some of my pictures named fabulous faces princess party, her business name is ***** ***** by "her name"She messaged me telling me I have her business name on her website and she will press charges of I do not remove fabulous faces princess parties.Her name is ***** ***** as fabulous faces by "her name" and llc fabulous faces "her name" llc.So is me naming pictures what I did illegal?Once I removed to appease her.

I have couple websites and vanity phone numbers tied to

I have couple websites and vanity phone numbers tied to those websites. I have a S corp which is a professional services business. I want to operate the websites as part of the S corp, instead of setting up a separate companies for each of websites. For doing that do I have to register DBAs for each of the websites I am going to operate under S corp? or just mention on those websites that they are " website/vanity is operating business of --- my S corp" .What does " operating business of XXXX" mean? does it have separate entity for each operating business/website or it is just reporting to parent company for all revenue and expenses under the operating unit tab?

I understand that certain types of business organizations

I understand that certain types of business organizations like corporations or LLCs provide the business 'operators' with certain protections such as in the event of being sued, whereas a sole proprietor puts personal assets at risk. In Kentucky, I've noticed that some professionals like doctors and attorneys are listed with the Secretary of State's office with an LLC or PLLC. But many aren't. So how would an attorney or doctor with a private practice- especially one operating a business with a name other than their personal name, be identified, so to speak, if they aren't registered with the Secretary of State which would be a requirement if they were an LLC, PLLC or corporation, etc. ? Would they be considered sole proprietors ?

I own a truck driving school which has to be certified by the state of California to offer training programs that are over $2500.We are certified but we would also like to offer programs that are under $2500 and not subject to certification.Right now we are set up as a c corporation, "ABC Truck Driving School, INC"Is it possible to modify our corporation to read "ABC Truck Driving, INC" and then set up two DBA's under it as:1. DBA ABC Truck Driving School (Certified Programs above $2500)2. DBA ABC Truck Driving Rental Company (Non-Certified Programs below $2500)Also, if this is possible, does the governing body that certifies us have to recognize the DBA's as separate entities?
