I have a business I opened with a friend, I out all the

I have a business I opened with a friend, I laid out all the finances and warehouse under my name, 6 months later my mother got I'll which took me away from the business. I was happy to take a step back not receive any money until I return. I live around the corner from the office and would help out and invoice at anytime. 5 months later my mother past away. Within that week my partner came to me and said the warehouse is in lockdown because the rent had not been paid behind 16k and all the money that had come in he had spent. I went and spoke to the agent gave them 10k up front for them to open the doors again so that I could try and recover the money I laid out as promised by my partner the doors were reopened. Once the doors were opened 2-3wks later my partner created an argument and then told me he does not want me there and that he would pay back the money I out laid and fix the rent and get it out of my name. A couple of months later I have not received a cent the rent is now back at 18k and the doors locked again.Now he won't answer any of my calls or messages. In this time the agent has not contacted me as they had been going direct to him and making deals that he had not kept up to and now after 10 months it's all my problem again and not to mention I'm still out of pocket for the original outlay. What can I do

I don't work for anyone, but I've been married to my husband

I don't work for anyone, but I've been married to my husband for 30 years. We have 2 boys. My husbands family is a large caucasian catholic family. My husband and I are co owners of a 6 person corporation. Though us 3 wives are not shareholders of the corporation, the other 2 wives seem to have a lot of influence on what goes on in the corporation. I was told from the beginning, the wives don't get involved, so I respected that and never disobeyed the corporation rules, however, through the years, I've noticed how influential these wives actually are. When I would ask my 2 brother in laws questions about the corporation, they always seemed to ignore me. My 2 sister in laws never gave me the time of day. My husband and I are 10+ years younger than the 2 other co-owners of corporation. Through the years, I've grown to know a tremendous amount of information about the corporation (some good, but mostly not so good). It seems like the other 2 co-owners and their wives have prospered much more than us. We have signed for the same loans that bought properties and other farm machinery needed, amongst other items. These properties and everything is to be evenly split 33.3%. It all started 5 years ago when I started asking many question of the corporation, and thats when everyone turned against me in a terrible way. All i wanted was to create a family trust and put our home in the trust, but we couldn't because we didn't own it, the corporation did. And thats how it all started. My 2 brother in laws and their wives, my husbands 3 sisters have turned against me also. Overtime I try to get everyone together to talk things out, they totally ignore me. One day I was talking to my husbands sister and she told me that her brother (one of our co- owners of the corporation) said that I think I'm something to think I can ask all these questions. It's none of my business about what the corporation does. AND he refers me to the "Mexican Queen" (I am of Mexican decent). Even though the properties are under us 6 individuals and are deeded as tenants in common, my husband and I have no say so, but it seems to me they have it more for me because I ask so many questions and demand answers. At one recent meeting with these 2 other co-owner brother in laws. The one that refers to me as the "Mexican Queen" told me, "At the end, it's going to be between me and you Mexican Queen"!! Now I'm really starting to think that all this unfairness from the start of my marriage to now, is a classic case of discrimination. I've taken a lot of injustice from these other corporation owners and would really like to exploit them with a discrimination case against them. I have so much more evidence of the unfairness to me, but it's so obvious that they think I'm beneath them to this day. Please tell me if I have a chance to file a discrimination case against them and win. I've had all the unfairness I can stand. It's ruining my husband and my marriage. All my husbands life with his brothers, growing up with them and working with them, they have always treated my husband with no respect. All my husband has wanted from his brothers is acceptance and respect. Never has been that way.
