Getting your EIN

It is often the small steps that slow a business from getting off the ground in Gainesville. You (and your business partners, if you have any) have made all of the important decisions regarding your company's management structure and your service model, and you may even have client orders pending. Yet there still is one step that may need to be taken before you can officially be open for business, one that many of our clients here at The Roberts Law Firm, P.C. overlook: Getting your tax identification number. 

When you and a neighbor disagree about boundaries

You likely want to get along with your neighbors. After all, being right next to you, your neighbors, and their relationship with you, can very much impact your life as a homeowner. However, there are a range of things that could end up generating arguments between you and a neighbor. One major source of potential disputes between Georgia neighbors are boundaries.

What is a breach of contract?

If you are like most Georgians, you have entered into many contracts so far in your life. Some were more important than others. Some were in writing; others were verbal. Some called themselves contracts; some called themselves something else such as your mortgage, your car loan, your agreement with your internet and/or cellphone provider, your order confirmation from an online vendor, etc. If you are married, your marriage license is a contract between you and your spouse.

Multi-billion dollar development project facing foreclosure

It may be easy for Gainesville property owners that are facing foreclosure to be humiliated by their predicaments. A presumption may exist that staying on top of one's financial obligations in relation to a property is relatively easy, and that those who struggle with them only do so because of poor money management. Yet were one to actually know how many homes and property developments face the threat of foreclosure, the perceived stigma associated with such a dilemma might easily vanish. 

What can I do about a tax lien?

If you are a Georgia resident and are faced with a tax lien on your property, that means a delinquent debt liability has been recorded with one or more Superior Courts. According to the Department of Revenue, it can file the lien in order to secure the debt if it is in George's best interest.

Defining duress

The business contracts your company enters into with clients in Gainesville ensure you continued access to work and/or resources. Yet a bad contract can also lock you into a seemingly unfair agreement. You might tell yourself that you would never knowingly enter into a bad contract, yet many of those that we here at The Roberts Law Firm, P.C. have worked with once shared the same assertion. However, pressure-filled circumstances often prompted them to enter into such agreements. Could you reasonably be faced with the same sort of duress?
