What form do I file when the defendant defaulted in

What form do I file when the defendant defaulted in attending a pre-trial hearing in Hillsborough county Fl Small Claims cout? Where do I get the form and who should it be sent to?The judge entered a default judgement but I understand from one of your attorneys thathave to file a default form for the court to determine if the defendant was properly served.I showed the Judge where the defendant was served via certified mail and someone in the office signed fo rthe pre-trial conference document. I was also told if the default service was accurate, I could put a lien on their property but I want my $5,000 investment and leal fees returned.I'M NOT SURE WHERE TO GO FROM HERE.

About a year ago I was working Enrolled Agent in Las Vegas.

About a year ago I was working for an Enrolled Agent in Las Vegas. I am an EA myself. He decided that I was a 1099 employee, not a w2, which was OK with me at the the time. But then he started giving me directions that were not in keeping with 1099 status. And he finally terminated me when I was in middle of a bunch of tax returns because he did not want to pay my already accrued bills. His reason for termination was I was making too much money and he had paid for the advertisiing for company that was where clients came from. . He demanded I turn in my keys and leave. He agreed to pay for work already done and to wrap up incomplete work and pay me fairly. He paid me some,and then agreed to pay me the balance by now. He did not do so. I can take him to small claims court. But I am wondering if I should file a complaint with the labor commissioner.of Nevada. I really was not a 1099 employee.

I'm not sure if this is a business law question or not. I

I'm not sure if this is a business law question or not. I prepare taxes for various clients. This year I did taxes for a lady who works for me as a coach. When I entered the SSN's of her kids, I made a mistake entering one number. So when I efiled, it didn't take that dependent.My client is in a nasty legal battle with her ex husband and his lack of cooperation is helping to run up the legal bill and she is bummed about how she's going to pay for it.When the dependent bounced she thought maybe he had taken one of the kids and so had some discussions with her attorney about who has priority with dependents. She does because she has primary physical custody. I did not charge her anything for tax prep because I was trying to be a good guy and help her out.Now she is insinuating that I should pay her for the attorney's time that was accrued because of the error I made. Obviously I didn't do it on purpose.What do you think my options are on this matter? I've decided to fire her from coaching as she is a mean coach and I would do this even without this problem. But in trying to be a friend she thinks I owe her.
