Legal Answers
43 Questions Answered
Q. hello, Is there a time limit to file a malpractice against a probate lawyer
A: The basic Statute of Limitations for bringing suit against an attorney, is one year from the point you knew, or should have known, that the malpractice occurred. But, you have stated facts that make the issue more complicated and could extend the statute, and/or raise other actionable causes of action, like breach of fiduciary duty. You need to address these issues in depth, with a knowledgeable attorney.
Q. CA franchise tax required just because I have an employee there?
A: Employees have nothing to do with the California Minimum Tax. If you are an entity, LLC, Corp., LP, etc., that has applied for, and obtained qualification to do business in California, you are required to pay the Minimum tax of $800 per year, whether you have any employees or not, in California or not. If you do business in California without being qualified, and get caught, the entity will be required to pay the tax. The most common way an entity is caught, is when it is sued. If the entity is not qualified, it is not allowed to defend itself in Court, until it becomes qualified, and pays all back taxes.
Q. Defendant’s Late Filing of Answer to Complaint in California
A: The Courts have a great deal of discretion in this area. Usually a Judge will want a showing of excusable neglect, but two principles are at the top of the list of priorities. 1. Everyone should have his day in court. 2. Issues should be tried on the merits, not on the basis of who is fastest to get to the courthouse.
