Q. My wife suffers from TBI. She suffers from a lack of impulse control. She has been spending money like crazy.
A: Sorry to hear about your ordeal. The ADA covers discrimination based on disability and failure to provide reasonable accommodation for a disability, so is likely inapplicable. One issue you need to look at is mental competence to enter into a contract. A contract may be invalidated if a party did not have the mental competence to understand the basic terms of the deal. If she did understand what she was doing, however, then it would be good to consult an attorney handling bankruptcy and/or asset protection. The first step would be to reach out to the lender to attempt to fix the problem, and if that fails, determine if bankruptcy would be a good solution.
Q. Hello I need help confirming a business name that I’ve “registered” and someone is possibly challenging this name
A: Your inquiry is a bit vague as to whether your corporate name and/or fictitious name are registered with the Fla. Division of Corporations exactly as you intended. That is - does the name appearing on Sunbiz.org match the name you are using? Only names that are registered are protected - that is, no one else may legally use those names, and if they do, legal action may be taken (or start with a threat of legal action). If you are using a name that is unregistered, you need to fix it. If someone else registered a name that you wanted to use, but did not register, that party has the right to use that name, and you don't.
Q. USING A HYPHENATED NAME ON A NOTARIZED DOCUMENT: THE NAME CHANGE GAME - TRICKERY TO AVOID LEGAL LIABILITY
A: To answer that question, a review of all relevant documents and communications would be required because notarization is not normally needed to create an enforceable contract. So the issue is whether the faulty notarization makes a difference, as opposed it being irrelevant because of having a binding contract with an individual whose identity is known, with signatures that bind without notarization. A related issue is whether the type of contract you have requires witnesses in order to be valid - a separate issue from notarization.
