I am executor of my father's estate. Everything of the

I am executor of my father's estate. Everything of the estate has been finalized except the sale of a timeshare. There are 5 people to share the money. I want to buy the timeshare for more than it would probably sell for. One member of the estate wants us to sell it to someone else. The other members want their money. The one member will not answer letters or phone calls. Do I try certified mail? Can i determine a fair amount and distribute the money without her approval? This has been going on for several months and I'm very frustrated. Can you please send me some advice? Thank you ***** ***@******.***JA: Have you thoroughly reviewed the contract?Customer: Yes, I've been told it's not really part of the estate, but I promised my dad I would take care of it. The member considers it part of the estate. Dad died 2 years ago and everything else was handled a year ago.JA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: What do you mean by filed or reported? I have spoken to ssales agency in north carolina.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: No, I just need to know how to contact this member and if I can decide on a fair price and distribute without her input if she refuses to respond to me.

I just started a GoFundMe page. I own a private physical

I just started a GoFundMe page. I own a private physical therapy office. The Hospital in my area are buying up most of the physicians and taking away referral sources. They collect greater reimbursement for services rendered than I can get because they are a Hospital. I had a child recently and after we got home, I received a letter asking for donations for the Hospital. So other words I'm being asked to contribute money to help them put me out of business. I have contracts with medicare and all sorts of insurance companies and my private practice is in NJ. I thought I might as well tell my story and see if I can obtain funds in order to afford to compete with the Hospital. The doctors below me are part of the Hospital and they moved down the street to a new location along with their own physical therapy center. I'm in NJ. Is it legal for me to use GoFundMe and collect these Gifts to help perpetuate my business and help the community? Thank youJA: Because real estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: This isn't real estate law, this deals with the situation noted above.JA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: No... I just started the site and I want to promote it, but I want to ensure I don't get into any hot water for doing thisJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: It's in NJ, I'm a physical therapist, I contract with Medicare and a host of insurance company's and I want to ensure I can do a GoFundMe site without any problems. I know that nonprofits are suppose to register and do all sorts of things. I have a message provided to me by Gofundme when I posed them the question as follows: Nicole SNicole S (GoFundMe Customer Happiness)Nov 2, 3:58 AM PDTHi Mitch,Thank you for getting in touch with our team today and great question!Since crowdfunding is still a relatively new industry, a lot of governments don't have any set rules with regards ***** ***** just yet. While this is by no means a guarantee, donations on GoFundMe are simply considered to be "personal gifts" which do not, for the most part, affect your personal tax liability, or Medicare eligibility. However, there may be particular, case-specific instances where these donations do have an affect (dependent on amounts received and use of the monies, etc.).We're unable to provide specific advice since everyone's situation is different and Medicare rules can change on a yearly basis. We advise that you maintain adequate records of donations received, and consult with an experienced Elder Law attorney.If you wish, I can temporarily turn off donations on your campaign, or else, delete or suspend it for the time being, so that it cannot be accessed publicly. Let me know which option you prefer.Warm wishes,Nicole S----------------Have any feedback?

The facility includes a 14,500 ft2 training center and a 26-room guest lodge. This facility is primary for trainees attending our discipleship training events.Besides our internal usage, we have a lot of unused space and would like to share it with other Christian organizations, churches, and ministry leaders for ministry purpose and personal spiritual renewal.My question is that does my organization need to apply any license if we charge fees to the following 3 categories?1. Trainees attending our internal ministry events2. Other churches and Christian organizations using our facility for their training events3. Individual Christian using our facility for their personal spiritual renewal4. Can we just opened to the 3 groups on above and not to general public?
