I am working on a free walking tour. The City does not require liability insurance (CGL) but I want one for added protection. The broker I am working with insists that I must charge for the tour; that a contractual relationship must exist (tour in exchange for $). I fail to see the relevance in terms of assumed risk on their part for paid v. free tours. Anyway, if I decide to charge a penny, could they deny me coverage on a claim because a penny does not constitute a high enough payment to meet the definition of a contractual obligation?

Hello, Josiah here. I was recently denied the purchase of a firearm. I contacted the Oregon state firearm challenge line and spoke with an officer who told me I had been flagged for being in a mental institution. I have since contacted the FBI and filled an appeal. I have not got any results back yet, should be sometime next week.The Officer said they just put in the flag 2016, I have my CCW and have made firearm purchases in the past, am I in violation of the law now that they flagged me?I was admitted to Idaho state hospital many years ago. I think when I was 19 or 20, I am now 32. I stayed their two months and was released. I had a sever concussion which caused confusion and disorientation for a few weeks. After I was released I was sent a letter of expungment.I was never had nor do I have a mental illness, at the time I could have been viewed a danger to myself from the confusion of the concussion, I do not lack the mental capacity to manage my own affairs, nor have I committed a crime guilty by reason of insanity.I am confused on how to fix this and restore my 2nd amendment rights? Am I permanently disqualified just for being admitted to the state hospital or is it something else? Would I have to hire an attorney or have a psychiatrist deem me of sound mind.

I have a very -winded story followed by a series of

I have a very long-winded story followed by a series of questions.My husband (who has Cluster B personality disorder) and I have been separated (not legally) since February of 2015. I kicked him out after discovering a loan that he took out without consulting me. This is the first of MANY over the last ten years. He was in the sub-prime mortgage business in 2007 when the market crashed. It was because of his industry—actually, the company he worked for—that our economy collapsed. When he lost his job, I had a one-month old baby at home and we were living in Florida. We had five properties and he was in charge of ALL of the finances. He wanted to start a new business and I asked him not to touch our 401k (daughter's college fund). By the time I found out what had happened, we had no money. He had spent the entire amount paying payroll on a shady business that failed; it's been downhill ever since. Several years ago, we bought a small house and did a loan modification. He convinced me to use my corporate credit (I had an 850 score and 150K line of credit at the time on a marketing biz I owned) to pay for the renovation; stating that he would pay off when the banks paid us. That never happened. By the time the banks paid us, he was without a job for the 15th time. I filed bankruptcy a week before kicking him out and no longer have this business. Flash forward to today: I have been paying all of our bills through his account (my mortgage, car payment, etc.). My name is ***** ***** ANYTHING. Last weekend, I put the remaining items of his (clothes, etc) in the shed and asked him to remove them. He became enraged and made a scene in front of my daughter who is now 9. It has escalated to a point where he is now canceling all of the credit cards and removing me from everything. I am now a freelance writer and making very little money. I have a nine-year-old daughter and the house is in my name. His mother co-signed, so she is on there as well. The car title was transferred into his name before filing chapter7 so I could keep it and because we are still married (unable to pay for a lawyer and I did not qualify for legal aid since we file jointly). *sigh* So here are my questions: 1) what do i do? How do I protect myself if I don't qualify for legal aid and cannot afford an attorney? 2) what are my rights when it comes to financial support? My daughter has a scolarship in a private school on the other side of town. The commute is 30 min each way and I pick her up at 3pm. he has never taken care of her for more than 24 hours on his own and is threatening to change that. I am just so lost and scared. Any advice is helpful. thanks.

Felony charged due to psychotic break; what is my best deal?

I had a psychotic break and during my hallucinations I broke out a church's antique stained glass windows. I was charged with felony vandalism to a place of worship. They offered me a plea deal where the felony will be discharged under the GA 1st offender's act , but I have to pay $27,000 in restitution, serve 5 years on probation, and 100 hrs of community service. I have had a history of mental illness but was officially diagnosed after this incident occurred. Is this plea bargain the best I could hope for? The only reason I caused any damage to the church was because of my psychotic break. I would never do such a thing intentionally. I'm now stable and on medication.I was arrested, charged and arraigned. And offered the plea deal.I have police reports that include witness accounts of me hallucinating and in the middle of psychosis. And I have doctors and psychiatrists records.

Our midwife's billing partner has contacted us and said our

Our midwife's billing partner has contacted us and said our insurance didn't pay as much as he thought (even though he reassured us verbally that they would) and that we now owe the amount (about $3,600).He has sent us no bill in the mail. He has repeatedly called and spammed my wife's email.This has been really stressful. The midwife failed to diagnose my wife with post partu. Anxiety and PTSD and we had to spend a lot of money on psychiatrists and therapists and will have to continue spending a lot.The midwife's and billing person's calls and emails to my wife additionally stressed her out. She talked to her psychiatrist about this and the psychiatrist said she needs to report her to the nurse practitioner board because she has violated her license.The billing partner said he is going to take legal action if we don't pay this week. I said I am not in a place to pay due in part to all the unexpected mental health billsThis has been insanely stressful for us all.What should I do?We have two contracts with them, thetc first for a pregnancy that ended sadly. That contract is signed.For this pregnancy (which happened several months after) we have no signed paperwork.
