Cpas And Attorneys: Law Degree Vs Mba?
I Am A Cpa With 3 Years Of Experience In Tax Preparation. I Am Trying To Plan My Future And Career. Any Other Cpas / Lawyers That Can Help Share Opinions Or Their Stories Please Help.
I Do Not Know If I Want To Eventually Open My Own Tax Service, Or Somehow Narrow My Focus To Large Companies And/Or Transactions. With This Approach I Would Not Be Stuck In The &Quot;Corporate World&Quot; And &Quot;Office Politics&Quot;. I Would Work Hard But Reap All Of The Results. - I Guess I Could Do Tax Or Go To Law School And Be An Estate/Trust Attorney, Or Bankruptcy, Business Formations, Something To Leverage My Accounting Background.
On Another Note, Maybe I Should Head For The Industry And Work Toward Executive Level Opportunities In The Future.
Any Input Is Appreciated. I'M Still Not Sure What It Takes To Reach The Goal I Decide Or What To Expect.
There is a glut of lawyers, but I can see an MBA glut forming. Lots of bright people who feel they should go back to school get their MBA for lack of anything better to do.
Personally, I think the law degree has better "synergy" with the CPA. A CPA is useless for "high end" tax law, but is a big help getting your first tax law job. Also, you seem to have more specific ideas for a law degree then an MBA.
Questions to ask yourself:
1.) Do you see yourself arguing for a position? (law degree)
2.) Do you see yourself supervising people? (An MBA. Lots of people forget an MBA is designed to be a management degree).
3.) Do you prefer tax accounting or business valuations?
4.) Who do you like better, George Bush (MBA) or Abraham Lincoln (lawyer)?
Success in law SCHOOL is based on your ability to take tests and decipher obscure statements.
Success in Business SCHOOL is based on your ability to give oral presentations and play with spreadsheets.
Success as a lawyer is based on your ability to argue.
Success in Management is based on your ability to supervise subordinates.
Success in Finance is based on your ability to gamble, and your ability to schmooze clients. (The MBA was NOT designed to be a finance degree, but it is often used as such)

Can Anyone Please Tell What Are My Options At This Point And What I Have To Do Because There Is Also A 10 Days Periods To Reply To That Citation And I Do Not Know What To Do.
You cannot go to jail over credit card debts.
- If you are not working, then there obviously cannot be a wage garnishment...but a judgement would allow them to freeze your bank accounts.
If you are really being taken to court and you don't have any money, then it's critical that you respond to the summons and show up in court. If you don't bother to do either of these, a default judgement will be issued, which could easily be over $2,000 with fees added. People often make the mistake of thinking that they will loose anyway, so there is no point in showing up in court. While this is correct, if you don't show up, you will loose on your credit card company's terms. By showing up and pleading your case, you at least have a chance of having a judgement that is more in line with the actual $1,300 owed.

Can I Get Legal Aid If I Have £20,000 In My Bank But Only £7500 Of It Is Mine?
I Have An Appointment With A Solicitor In A Few Days For An Initial Consultation To See If They Can Take My Case. I Am Unemployed (Unfair Dismissal - The Reason I Am Seeing The Solicitor) And Do Not Get Any Other Income/Benefits Etc. I Live With My Parents So Do Not Pay Rent.
The Problem Is That A Couple Of Months My Uncle Transferred Around £12,000 Into My Bank Account, But This Money Is For My Mum And Dad Only, As They Are Always Having Financial Issues. The Money Is My Mum And Dad'S As I See It And I Wouldn'T Dream Of Spending A Penny Of It Without Their Express Permission. I Take Out What They Need As And When They Ask Me, Or Occasionally Pay For Things For Them - And This Comes Out Of Their £12,000.
My Own Money Is Around £7500 (In The Same Account) Which Is From Money I Have Saved Up Myself While I Was Working.
I Read That To Get Legal Aid You Can'T Have Savings Over £8000..........So Now I Am Worried That The Solicitor Will Make Me Pay The Legal Fees Because It Looks Like I Have £20,000 In Savings, Even Though This Money Isn'T Mine.
How Can I Prove To Them That It Is Not For Me To Spend, And That Only £7500 Is Mine?? I Have My Bank Statements Showing The Transfer, But That Doesn'T Prove That The Money Is For My Parents.
Do You Think They Will Make Me Pay Legal Fees Nonetheless?
I Know You Will Probably Just Say To Get My Parents To Pay For The Legal Fees Since They Have &Quot;All This Money&Quot; Sitting In My Account, But (A) It'S Meant To Last Them A Very, Very Long Time, And (B), I Would Never Ask Them To Help Me With Financial Issues Ordinarily.
I Really Need Some Advice Please.
You should get a separate account to help your parents out with. You must get a notarized document from your uncle stating what the money is for and account for every penny to avoid unnecessary questions.
Another really quick and easy fix action is to get a joint account with your uncle as the primary and you as the secondary. You will still have access to the money to help your parents out, and you will have an easier time explaining the funds since they technically don't solely belong to you.
What Is The Difference Between Visitation And Joint Custody?
With Joint Custody, both the child's parents have 100% legal authority over the child. They are both able to get medical help, make school decisions, etc.
With Joint Custody, the children usually have primary residence with one parent and visit the other on an agreed schedule. Some parents with joint custody live in the same sub-division so the kids spend one week on/one week off with each parent so both parents get 50% of the time with the child. Whom the child lives with at any time can change as agreed upon by the parents.
With Sole Custody, one parent has 100% legal authority over all decisions concerning the child. This is the parent whom the child lives with exclusively.
With Sole Custody, the parent who does not have "custody" is legally entitled to visitation. There is an agreed on, or court ordered, schedule.
Visitation occurs with Joint Custody and Sole Custody but with Sole Custody only the person with custody or the court determines how much the other parent can see the child.

First of all, it is impossible for anyone to provide you with reliable legal advice regarding the enforceability of provisions in a contract without having the entire contract to review.
Second of all, as a practical matter you are never going to receive legal advice on the enforceability of a contract that you, as a complete layman, have decided to draw up for yourself. It would be cheaper and more efficient for a lawyer to provide you with his or her own contract based on whatever terms in layman's language that you provide.
Third, if you don't own the apartment and have a standard lease with your landlord, it is almost guaranteed that you cannot sublease any portion of the apartment without the landlord's consent which would make the sublease unenforceable.
If you don't want to pay for a lawyer I suggest you just take your chances and ask for the entire rent for the period be paid in advance, because even without having access to the entire contract I can see that what you have drafted is problematic.
