We recently made a loan on some property we had. As soon as the broker heard the loan was ready to close, he called us and pressured us to agree over the phone to pay him $4750.00 in addition to what was on the worksheet as his fee. The loan closed and he has sent an invoice for the amount wanting to know if we received the check. Is this legal?

I have (had) a partner that committed financial fraud in my

I have (had) a partner that committed financial fraud in my company..and I have been working with the IRS, the Virginia State Police, the Criminal Investigators of the IRS, and had a consult with a Bankruptcy attorney. I have a local attorney who was representing me since December 2015, but THAT IS NOT THE CASE NOW. (And needs to be fired). In hindsight, this case may have become to large for him. The Bankruptcy Attorney suggested I retain an attorney who can go after my ex partner for fraud, and the demise of my company. I have ONE dilemma with an employee who I wish to keep, and she maintains an employee contract through the ex partner. That contract will be up in November of 2016. If I close this company completely, she is blocked from assisting me and he will receive $150K if she fails to comply. I need an attorney immediately. The court cases are fast approaching, and my current attorney continues to work with the partner's attorney to keep getting them postponed instead of having him produce the money owed to keep me in business. Advice?

Law educator only please. Hopefully you remember me

For the law educator only please. Hopefully you remember me somewhat. and my case .. I'm the one who married tha Canadian and suspect marriage fraud and well financial fraud. During this continuance, while still in divorce proceedings and a joint prelim.Injunction in place... My ex sold our home in Canada and had the proceeds of the sale made out in a check to his sister and she deposited it in her bank account and slowly deposited it in his account all to of course try to make himself look broke. Ok, I havewritten proof (the closing statement Canada style,lol) that shows a check made out to her, the net proceeds etc. in the mean while over in his DUI court he was admonished by the court for forging his AA meeting paperwork! So a complaint was lodged againsthim in that court for attempting to defraud the court. Hopefully that will support my claims of his lies and bs in divorce court. What's your take? Got any good strategies? Oh, he also, while trying to look so poor during this time decided to trade his carin (all without any written consent from me) for a car the costs double the payment as before! So that's going to look nice too...

I just discovered that our mortgage broker used false information

I just discovered that our mortgage broker used false information without our knowledge in 2006 to obtain a home loan for my wife and I. We live in CA. I just read in your site that the statute of limitation for the federal government to bring charges is 10 years in this type of cases. Do I have the same time to bring a law suit against my broker for fraud?

QUESTION FOR ZACHARY Following the previous Q&A, new things

QUESTION FOR ZACHARYFollowing the previous Q&A, new things have happened, unfortunately along the lines of the unthinkable scenario I am anticipating, and i need some of your fine information on that one,and in particular what would lawyers do in my situation.Sorry for being a bit lengthy, but this is how it looks like as of now :Because plaintiff has communicated a false address to the Police and the other address he has communicated to the Court is undeliverable, we started to investigate and googling around, and we were very uncomfortable with what we found.On the other hand, we were requested to givehim all the detailsof our bank accounts, social security, drivers license etc... to someone who has a chance to be involved in financial frauds with overseas countries like the UK and Sweden.So, the general idea was to file the motion 1.540 for frauds by perjury, discovery violations and contradicting sworn statements to the Police ( his unfounded claims) and next to the Court.However, this took me more time than I thought and I wnet slightly over the time allocated to provide these very confidential infos.Plaintiff immediately filed a motion to have an order issued to compel us, and we provided the documentation in time.However, he prematurely filed a motion to compel and for sanctions, perniciously aiming at making a case that we are acting criminally by not complying.I immediately served and filed an opposition, explaining why.Surprisingly to non initiated people, but not to me, despite the opposition, when this is just a matter of calculating according to rules, the judge granted a hearing to plaintiff as opposed to issue an order denying simply his motion.This is also when I filed my motion Rule 1.540 and my motion to stay pending appeal.So I filed an emergency motion to add my motion rule 1.540 to the hearing scheduled for this Friday, and i sent an email to his lawyer asking him if he had any objection to add my motion Rule 1.540 to the hearing.I asked him to answer by return and a few hours later, I had no news, and so I seerved a Notice of Hearing, adding my motion RUle 1.540.So I have one motion to the judge to add my motion 1.540 running together with the Notice, i shot in both directions due to the lack of time and leaving it up to the court and my opponent.NOW HERE IS THE ISSUE :Around noon today, plaintiff serves me an amended motion in which he contends our declarations related to our financial situation.However, as expected, and particularly as far as I am concerned, his allegations are frivolous and pernicious.For instance, I applied for a reverse mortgage in November 2012, and it was granted on Jauary 9th, 203, refinancing a classical FHA loan that i could not afford to pay anymore. The loan was refinanced in December 2012, out of memory, and the title company recorded the mortgage after. The recording, according to plaintiff, is dated January 9th, 2013, that is the date after the trial, and he makes a case out of that,implying viciously that there is a fraudulent purpose behind.There are other similar weird things that happened too, and in particular an email where he is accusing me of "fabricating", but let's work on the above first, and my question is how do lawyers typically handle such situation,Please note that his amendment is violating FRCP Rule 1.190, in addition, with 67 pages of documents to read in the next 48 hours, it's a denial of due process !
