HEY HATED LAWYER!!
What is with all these initials? TCJA, LLC, Subchapter S or C, SSTB?
In this blog series, we try to avoid “legal mumbo jumbo babble.” (Was severely chastised by a psychologist one time for calling his verbiage “psychobabble”; go figger).
So, other than identifying the TCJA as the 2017 Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, let us continue to avoid “legal mumbo jumbo babble.”
There are many reasons that your financial institution seems to disregard your legal entity and seek personal information about you.
Within the United States Treasury lies “FINCEN” (do not ask me if the “C” is a “k” or “s” sound). FINCEN stands for “Financial Crimes Enforcement Network.” Its published mission is “to safeguard the financial system from illicit use, combat money laundering, and promote national security through the strategic use of financial authorities and the collection, analysis, and dissemination of financial intelligence.”
The straight answer is Yes.
Through our holidays, married persons often learn about others’ character and attitudes. Sometimes married persons merely wait until after the holidays before considering divorce/custody.
IF you are committed to learning whether you should divorce or just consider divorce; NOW, immediately after the holidays, is an appropriate time to consult your hated lawyer. (This includes me you know.)
First, while your memory and reasoning are fresh, you want to seek your lawyer so that you can provide up-to-date and accurate information.
Second, January is a “high season” for starting divorce actions. Judges have been on vacation. Lawyers have taken time off and so now the rush is on.
Third, because of the time off and because January is high season, you may have competition for your lawyer’s time. You truly will want to beat the rush.
