What are My Fiduciary Duties if I Am Involved Romantically with Someone?

It is important to understand that when people live together, whether or not they are married, a “confidential relationship” arises between them. For married persons this relationship arises from a legally recognized nature of matrimony. For unmarried persons, certain important legal obligations are present but may be of lesser value. Nonetheless, due to the trust and confidential nature of the relationship, duty of loyalty, care and disclosure in transactions will be imposed.

Spousal duties have evolved over the years but management and control of assets and disclosure of such assets are well established. Family Code 721 is the starting point. Subsection (b) states, “This confidential relationship is a fiduciary relationship subject to the same rights and duties as non-marital business partners…” as set forth in the Corporations Code. It imposes a duty of the highest good faith and fair dealing on each spouse, and neither shall take any unfair advantage of the other.”

Section 721 (b)(1) further entitles each spouse access to information about all things affecting any transaction which concerns the community property estate.” This duty arises by operation of law and no requests needs to be made of that status of property or assets. FC 2100 (c) makes this obligation clear that “each party has a continuing duty to immediately, fully, and accurately update and augment that disclosure to the extent there have been any material changes so that at the time the parties enter into an agreement for the resolution of any of these issues, or at the time of trial on these issues, each party will have a full and complete knowledge of the relevant underlying facts.”

VIDEO : Underdog Jeff blows horn, seeks Pacquiao knockout

BRISBANE, Australia – At his training headquarters, in a boxing gym tucked inside the palatial home of his trainer and manager, Jeff Horn showed that he’s ready for the fight of his life.

On Sunday, before an expected live audience of 55,000, the newest pride of Brisbane faces Manny Pacquiao, the global boxing superstar and reigning WBO welterweight champion.

Horn arrived a little past noon Monday at the mansion of Glenn Rushton, an investment adviser and multi-millionaire who also dabbles as a boxing trainer and manager.

The unbeaten challenger faced members of the press, fielded questions in front of the cameras, and then showed off some of his boxing skills in a brief workout.

The first question thrown at him went like, “Are you nervous?”

“No. Fortunately, I’m not,” he said.

Horn, a former schoolteacher and veteran of the 2012 London Olympics, said he and Rushton have all they could do in training for him not to get nervous.

“The prep is basically finished now. I’m just sharpening the tools and making sure I don’t over-train.

“I think we can get the job done,” he said.

For the coming fight, Horn will receive a paycheck that would make his previous ones look like peanuts, but said it’s more than the money.

“If I become world champion on Sunday it will fulfill all my dreams and I will become a happy man,” said Horn, a young and decent fighter out to make it big.

Horn is eyeing a knockout win similar to the one scored by Mexico’s Juan Manuel Marquez over Pacquiao five years ago.

“The Juan Manuel Marquez bout is probably our main point. It’s something that we looked at a lot and to land the same big overhand right that Marquez landed is definitely what we’ll be looking for,” he said.

Of course, it’s easier said than done.

After speaking to reporters, Horn skipped ropes, climbed the ring, shadow-boxed and hit the mitts with his trainer, who looked more like a rock star than an investment guru.

They tried to impress those who were watching from outside the ring, where close to 20 trophies are displayed. On the wall are fight posters of Pacquiao’s recent fights.

Lisa’s life in the balance

In a previous issue, Philippine News revealed the plight of  Lisa Marie Evangelista, a 31-year-old Filipina woman who lives in Sacramento, who is in a literal fight for her life.On Dec. 27, 2016, she was diagnosed with Chronic Myelomonocytic Leukemia, a rare and aggressive blood cancer. She needs a bone marrow transplant to survive. Lisa’s sister is a 5/10 or half match. However, doctors prefer Lisa find a 10/10-donor match. To find a perfect match, Lisa needs a stranger to step forward and help save her life.Lisa has partnered with the Asian American Donor Program to find a donor similar to her genetic makeup. A bone marrow transplant, which is needed soon, is Lisa’s only hope for her long-term survival. A committed 10/10 marrow-matching donor must be located to have a successful transplant. Since Lisa is of Filipino, a matching donor will also need to be of Filipino or Asian descent.Shortage of Ethnic/Multi-Ethnic DonorsApproximately  every  3  minutes  one person in the  United States  is  diagnosed with a blood cancer. An estimated combined total of 172,910 people in the US are expected to be  diagnosed  with  leukemia,  lymphoma  or  myeloma  in  2017.  New  cases  of  leukemia, lymphoma and myeloma are expected to account for 10.2 percent of the estimated 1,688,780 new cancer cases diagnosed in the US in 2017.Of  the  approximately  816,000  Asians  on  the  Be  the  Match®  registry, .5  percent are Filipinos, while Filipino Americans constitute 19.7 percent of Asian Americans (Source: 2010  Census).  The  Be  The  Match®  registry  recruits  hundreds  of  thousands  of  donors each year through an extensive network of more than 155 local and regional Community Engagement Representatives and organizations. You only need to join the Be The Match® registry once.“Finding a marrow/stem cell match can be like finding a needle in a haystack,” says Gillespie.    “Multi-racial  patients  face  the  worst  odds.    Those  diagnosed  with  a  blood disease need a marrow/stem cell transplant as soon as possible. Building the Registry with committed donors is what patients need. You could potentially match anyone in the world, this is truly a global effort.” How You Can Commit to Help• Findaregistrationdriveinyourarea.Gotohttp://www.aadp.org/drive/• Registeronlinehere:https://join.bethematch.org/lisaYou must be 18 to 44 years old and meet general health requirements• Filloutaconsentformanddoacheekswab• Becommitted.Bereadytodonatetoanypatientinneed• Contactfriends/familyandencouragethemtogotoaregistrationdriveorregisteronline• Setupadriveinyourareaorformoreinformation,callAADPat1-800-593-6667or visit our website http://www.aadp.org• VolunteertohelpatregistrationdrivesPlease take a few minutes of your time to learn more about how you can help save a lifeand register as a marrow donor.Upcoming Registration DriveSoy and Tofu FestivalSaturday, June 17 from 11am to 5 pmOpen to the PublicSaint Mary’s Cathedral, 1111 Gough St., San Francisco, CA 94109Malayan SF Outdoor FestivalPhilippine Independence DaySunday, June 18 from noon to 8 pmUnion Square, 333 Post St., San Francisco, 941025:30 pm Free ConcertThe Asian American Donor Program (AADP), with its offices in the San Francisco Bay Area, is dedicated to increasing the availability of potential stem cell donors for patients with life threatening diseases curable by a blood stem cell or marrow transplant.
