My hope is to find a local attorney who will review my

My hope is to find a local attorney who will review my question, answer to the best of his/her ability with the limited information I am allowed to provide on this site, and if determines I may have a case, to please meet with me. I just do not know what category this falls under... I NEED HELP. I seriously cannot take one more single day of this. I am on the verge of a nervous breakdown. Following are the cliff notes of what is taking place. Please note that I have never met this person and we do NOT reside in the same state. This person has done the following:1) Contacted me under a false identity with false information regarding a person we have in common2) Created an email address using MY former company name (assuming found from the Secretary of State website) and consistently contacts me using such with the absolute intention to cause upset, pain, etc. Much more.3) Uses my current email address (not the company... my personal email address), name, phone number etc. to contact facilities who in turn email and call me based on the information this person provided to them4) Knows EVERYTHING about my life... all personal information, what I drive, where my children are, my whereabouts, what I eat (NOT KIDDING), my medical conditions, financial matters... YOU NAME IT.5) veiled death threats6) threats of exposing emails and text messages that were private in nature to the public and to my family. Emails intercepted and not certain how, although I have my theories. Person included in emails was living overseas and if retrived from an actual computer, it was from a company computer (not a marital asset). Texts were retrieved by a company from a SIM card taken from a company owned phone and this person has also publicly threatened to expose the contents. I have the name and date of company who retrieved info as this person has publicly posted that information.7) This person has a pinterest board dedicated to me (over 2K pins) in which she is somehow getting images off of my personal social media and incorporating into such. We cannot figure out how. Constantly makes reference to my social media. References EVERYTHING in my life on these boards that are HAUNTINGLY accurate. The most troubling is when it pertains to my children. When I attempted to completely change my identity on such, she still "found me" and told me how I did it wrong if I didn't want to be found.8) I was granted a TPO by judge, but after attempts of having her served and to no avail, I am not only tired of spending money, but I am exhausted. Lives in a 1 or 2 million dollar condo, 12 tenants, with secure access and a doorman who likes his Christmas bonus.9) Has not only put ABSOLUTELY FALSE information on the internet about me, but has discussed with others and she KNOWS this information is FALSE, harmful, etc.10) I feel her public posts could potentially affect my employment based on her accusations and comments and the locations and entities in which she contacts using my information are too close to the likeness of my employment. It is a small world in this field.I am so physically and emotionally beat down from waking up EVERY SINGLE DAY wondering if this person has taken illegally obtained communications and splattered them all over the internet, contacted my family and shared such, possible clients, friends, etc. I am tired of feeling as though I am being watched, not only online but every time I leave my house (for good reason in which I have evidence), I am tired of wondering if I walk out my door one day and am going to get shot in the back of the head... I know that sounds SO DRAMATIC... But it is the honest to God truth. I have MS.... and the anxiety, anguish, fear, and a thousand other emotions is driving my health into the ground.The complete irony in all of this... she knows I am NOT guilty of what she is portraying me as online and to others. She ABSOLUTELY knows the truth. This is a person who filed a false civil suit, identity theft, financial theft.... she is more than capable of the most unbelievable things but has NEVER suffered any consequences. And if you were on the outside looking in at this semi "high profile" person, you might have a really hard time believing me... but I have extreme amounts of evidence.Now that I vented more than anything, I need a lawyer! Desperately. This has to stop! I cannot live like this ANY MORE. The question is, what type of lawyer am I to contact? One that handles identity theft, harassment, stalking, libel, slander, privacy issues, etc. and can make this ALL stop before I have a total physical and mental breakdown (again, dramatic but true. This is consuming my life). She has unlimited financial resources whereas I do not.Again, type of lawyer, hopefully a local one that answers, and any suggestions on how to make this ALL stop. Please.

My daughter graduate Dec. 2014 and in June 2015 consolidated

My daughter graduate Dec. 2014 and in June 2015 consolidated all her Federal loans (140K) with SOFI now paying $800+ a month. We are getting a lot of phone calls about her possibly moving her loans to something that would allow her to pay less per month and after 120 months get loan forgiveness. She is an RN working for Baylor Hospital. Is this REAL? she wants to do the right thing by paying her debit but if she really would qualify for this forgiveness it would be a great burden off her shoulders. But we don't want some scam deal.

I am in Escrow on a short sale in California, all cash

I am in Escrow on a short sale in California, all cash purchase. Escrow called me to report a lean on the title for $25K. It turns out, the seller has hired a questionable firm with 21 companies and DBA's and signed and registered the document for $25K only for the seller to buy time by delaying foreclosure by the bank, and stay in the house for years, which he did for 4 years without making any mortgage payments. I have investigated those lean holding companies on the title, none of them have a legitimate addresses or phone numbers. So even if I want to pay it off to remove the lean, there may be no one to pay the loan back.The Escrow tells me I can buy it with that lean on the title and after the purchase go back to the court and remove it. Is it true? How easy is it? I'm trying to understand the likely and worst case scenarios. How long would the process take and how much would it cost? How much unknown is there, when i see the judge for example, could the judge come back and say you have to wait 7 years etc?

How do you figure out the jurisdiction of a corporation or

Hello,How do you figure out the jurisdiction of a corporation or LLC? For example, I'm filling out a contract for a partnership and the first clause in the contract is "COMPANY A, a _________ corporation having offices in a California office address."COMPANY A is listed in the CA Secretary of State website, but under "Jurisdiction" it says Delaware.Does that mean, for contracts, I should be designating COMPANY A as a DELAWARE Corporation? or a CALIFORNIA corporation?

I have assets I need to protect immediately this week and

I have assets I need to protect immediately this week and need help from a professional in asset protection meaning someone with training in finance, tax/international law and/or accounting. Some background first about me.My former business partner was diagnosed with borderline personality disorder. The book our therapist had us read on this disorder was titled "I Hate You Don't Leave Me". That sort of says it all. While she was brilliant, gorgeous and creative, she was also deeply troubled emotionally... bi-polar too. When I grew weary of "her way or the highway" I chose highway. She threatened to destroy our business and did. She did a brilliant forgery of my signature and sold one of our properties that would have been valued today at over 200k. The sale price for that 200k asset? 5,000 thousand dollars. She did not think twice about destroying her own net worth so that I would have nothing. She is that troubled. Fearing losing everything, I decided to walk away from our business with no assets and no debt. She moved on with the assets and debt, officially closed our old business and transferred everything to her new business. Her lies and manipulation cost me more then a year of my life and more in attorney fees then I had paid in my lifetime.For about a year after we parted ways I learned that she somehow was able to ascertain to the penny, my funds in the bank and other private information as well. As I mentioned earlier she's brilliant, also tech savvy and a hacker. I have put all the protections into place that I have been advised to do by my tech savvy friends. I hope that put an end to her prying into my affairs but I'll probably never know. She at one time had friends that worked for the state that gave her classified information, and according to my attorney, did so in violation of privacy regulations. She's a gifted manipulator and makes friends easily so she can talk people into almost anything.FAST FORWARD TO TODAY.I want to protect my assets and have a sizable check in hand, less then 100k. I need to have access to the funds immediately as I have business accounts to pay on Thursday of this week. I want to put the funds somewhere where it can make money, if possible, but also want to have it on hand as a liquid asset when needed. MOST importantly I don't want her, or her friends that work for the state, or anyone to know I have these funds. I don't want to have to spend these funds defending myself against more lies and manipulation. Now I know how much WINNING in court really costs.I talked to a friend of mine who is a VP at a local bank and we talked about TRUSTS but he suggested I speak with a tax lawyer or the like.Last thing. I don't want to deposit the sum of the funds into a checking account for fear that would be too easy for her to discover as she did once before. Is there a way to have access to at least 5k by Thursday?When contacted I can fill in more details as I'm sure recipients of my monologue will have questions. THANK YOU!POSTSCRIPT: To the Dr. Of Urology that requested to respond, please opt out as I am seeking someone with more tax law and financial expertise.
