Per NASD and the SEC an act doesn't have to be illegal to be improper. Anytime there can be the insinuation of conflict of interest it is improper. In this case it is improper unless there existed a prior documented relationship that supports the situation of a personal loan between the two.

They can deposit money into their personal bank account but they shouldn't. It will mix funds and accounting and taxes will be challenging. They can also be accused of wrongdoing.

Your personal corporation or one you work for? In either case, it should be possible for child support payments to be diverted from payroll or proceeds for the purpose. If this is not your personal corporation, rather a company you work for, speak with the human resources director where you work for information on having child support deducted and electronically transferred to the child support agency in your area.

You mean a stockholder in a Corporation...of course. His stock in the corporation is part of his BK as is anyother asset.

Usually not, that is one of the main reasons businesses are incorporated. The corporation becomes its own entity and the officers are shielded, to a certain extent, from personal liability for the acts of the corporation.

LTD represents the term limited. It means that the attorney is incorporated. In the US you would see PLLC or PC. That means Personal Limited Liability Corporation or Personal Corporation.

To the extent of your personal guarantee for the corporate debt, or if both you and the corporation borrowed the money, you will not owe anything if the debts are discharged in your personal chapter 7. If the corporation has any assets, it will be subject to lawsuits and attachments by the creditors. You should discuss the situation with an experienced bankruptcy attorney, as it may be better to wind up the corporation before filing a personal bankruptcy.

In my opinion, a good source for personal financial advice would be CNN (http://money.cnn.com/pf/) or your investor. As a newly married couple, it might be best to visit an investor to help get the couple set up and started in good, long term investments.

He can but should not. A personal guarantee defeats any corporate shield against seizure of personal assets.

Yes, if you include the guarantee you made to the creditor in the bk.

No. That is not correct. Bladder infection takes place due to improper personal hygiene.

No, unless a shareholder, officer or director has signed a debt in a personal capacity. The purpose of a corporation is to shield corporate owners and officers and direntors from liability including debts of the corporate and actions for wrongful actions like auto accidents while driving a corporate car, or death of an employee of the corporation while acting as an employee. A lender or a person hurt by an accident may only sue the corporation for the liability in a "perfect world". However, there are several ways to have an individual owner etc. become personally liable. First, if a corporation needs an operating loan it is not unusual for a lender to require an individual to sign as a gaurantor of the loan, or a co-debtor. If an individual acts in this individual capacity, he or she can be personally liable for the debt in which he or she acted as an individual. Second, if a person has treated the corporation as his own personal account, and the assets of the corporation have not been kept separate for corporate use only, a court can order that the corporate veil be pierced. This effectively means that the corporation is treated like any other sole proprietorship and all individual protection is lost. Third, (but probably not last) if a director or officer signs documents on behalf of the corporation but does not use his or her title, he may be liable on that document - personally. As an example, if the corporate president John Smith, signs a corporate check paying for a shipment of lumber, and does not sign it "john smith, President" he may have personal liablilty to cover that check.

In the US, if the corporation had filed for S-corp status, the loss would flow through to the owner's personal tax return from a K-1 to his personal Schedule E to Line 17 of Form 1040. If the corporation was filing as a C-Corp, the owner would have a Capital Loss because his stock was worthless.

The Inland Revenue Service defines a "C" Corporation as one that is legally independent from its owners. It also does not have a personal tax liability for its owners.
