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?

I filed a complaint with the local police department my

I filed a complaint with the local police department my windshield was broken by A guy my son knows. In my statement we were sure we saw him do it as he drove by. (We thought). Today our neighbor came by and told us her nephew was visiting from out of town and he'd broken the window. This guy that we thought had broken the window as a warrant From all of this. What do I do? Secretary states office is now the complaintant. They apparently are the only ones That can get rid of the warrant I would like to go tell them I made an honest mistake but I don't not want to be in trouble either. I also do not want to deal with the local Police Department I'm wondering if I can go file a motion to speak with the states attorney the judge.

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.

We had a misrepresented offer up with direct tv as a

We had a misrepresented offer for signing up with direct tv as a customer...the promotional offers was of a 300$ gift card and once the sales rep saw we were at & t customers said we could bundle accounts and qualify also for the 48" Samsung tv! Wow amazing offer, we questioned him at least 3 times because it did not sound right and he kept confirming we qualified so needless to say we signed up, on our contract forms it says about the initial promo of the gift card plus 3months free Chanel's.... Then I said how do we get the tv? He wrote a link in the back of the envelope for us and stated to wait until after we had service installed then go to link and claim promo....so we did and of course it did not apply to us, you must add a line and purchase a Samsung phone over 600$ later.... I have spoken to different department many times and have a case# ***** doesnt always show on their reports but when it does is because someone takes the time to read all activity since start and all they say it's escalating, but no help from them.today June 13 the I thought I should call about the gift card which I was told about 5 weeks ago that it had been processed, today is not even showing on initial order that we had one coming, so the representative kindly took the time to request it to be added to account since she saw offer was for Jan 2016-sept 2016 ..... My husband wants to sue for misrepresentation and fraud, also wants to post online about the way they r doing business, I like to know if there is a way to move forward with this, do we have a legal case? Or should we go about it by exposing their lies viral?....Thankyou kindly

I have a potential tax client who is likely to incorporate.

I have a potential tax client who is likely to incorporate. If I help him incorporate or form an LLC by filling out forms with the Nevada Sec of State, am I practicing law? When he DOES incorporate, he will need to file a 2553 election. Someone told me if I help him form an LLC or S corp, I am practicing law. It might be to the client's advantage to do LLC filing first, and elect S-corp-later when income is confirmed.
