There, I am in the process of a very, very ugly divorce.

Hi there,I am in the process of a very, very ugly divorce. I am a former CPA that supported her husband for 13 years, and had to retire b/c of a relapse of Cystic Fibrosis at which time he became extremely abusive.While I was sick, he stole my largest client, a $100M government contractor. He became CFO. He has now been there for 9 years. He told me his salary was 75K for 6 years, he was actually making $450K, bonus plus equity. He was hiding assets. During his tenure, he became involved with a woman that owns a small business. His largest contract with US AIDE came up for renewal, they needed a small business to meet SBA requirements. He formed a partnership with his girlfriend's firm, did her books, negotiated her contracts, gave her 40% of the contract or $40M in business, in exchange he took stock in her company. He is VERY smart, he kept all numbers "below the radar", I became suspicious b/c he sleeps with his phone under his pillow, tackles me if I try to look at it, hides his computer. One day I looked in his closet, found his computer and all the documents between the company he works for and Jenny. He is extremely techncially savvy, he codes his emails, however, an IT forensic person quickly decoded messages and verified what Ii knew.My question, I live on social security (2k), he said if I try to divorce him or tell anyone, he will deem me insane, have me committed and take my children. Do I have grounds to sue the company as a result of forming a partnership with a company that was formed b/c he was sleeping with the owner?Is it illegal (I know it is immoral) but is it illegal to spend 65% of working hours with his girlfriend, (hotels, restaurants), however b/c they have a partnership they are charging their time as work related.....I can prove otherwise b/c of emails.

I have an Illinois Agriculture law question My ex-landlord

I have an Illinois Agriculture law questionMy ex-landlord (contract ended the end of February) wants me to pay to have his corn moved because I always did over the years. We had a 50/50 crop share agreement. I told him that I did that as a benefit for him. There was never any words exchanged to have a verbal agreement, I just did it.I don't think I should have to pay to move his share, he thinks I should have to pay to move the corn.What is the law?Who is responsible?

This is the second time I am contacting this service issue.

This is the second time I am contacting this service for this issue. So I got an answer to the question but not enough to solve the problem. So I am looking for another answer. We are a small non profit organization We are looking to associate ourselveswith another non profit (much larger than us). I have read the article about mergers, federations and consolidations. However, the only thing the other organization is looking to do is merge. So my question is: We are still looking to "merge" with anothernon-profit. They contacted their lawyer and sent me this response. The North Carolina Nonprofit Corporation Act provides that when a non-profit merger takes place, the merging corporation merges into the surviving corporation and the separate existence ofeach merging corporation except the surviving corporation ceases. I read through the article that was sent to me and I understand the different types of "alliances". However, they are telling me it can't be done. I understand under the term merger - that isnot how it works. But is there any way we can at least keep our EIN and file a 990 as $0 - each year just to maintain status. I am scared that this venture will not work out and then our non profit loses everything If we do merge and give up our 501c3 - willan affiliation agreement hold any value if signed by both parties prior to the merger, since one of the parties (being my foundation) no longer exists. thank you Thank you

Good Morning! I sent Ocwen Loan Servicing a mortgage payment

Good Morning! I sent Ocwen Loan Servicing a mortgage payment on June 4th, they received it on June 8th and as of todays date the check has not been cashed - which means they have assessed a late charge, and ordered a property inspection and appraisal report(again). The have taken all website access away to view my account and what they think is owing, and the person I leave messages with does not return calls. Is it appropriate for me to contact defense attorney's paralegal to let them know?
