    I used my mothers credit card and she filed a police report. I have never been in teouble before i am paying the card back and speaking with a counsler what am i looking at for a punishment?

    Max’s Answer

    This will depend upon a number of different elements not the least of which is your previous criminal history. There may still be diversionary programs you can enter into if you have a clean record. Depending on your criminal defense attorney, you may be able to get community service and or other negotiated options. You definitely should seek experienced legal counsel.

    Hello, I am Max L. Rosenberg, a bankruptcy attorney in Stratford, Connecticut who offers free consultations. The costs of filing are the $335.00 filing fee to the federal court but you will also incur further costs for the mandatory pre-filing Credit Education class which runs from approximately $50.00 to about $24.00 and a post - filing Debtor education class that cost between $50.00 and $15.00. Both classes have been required since October 15, 2005 when the BAPCPA was enacted. Please feel free to contact me for further information.

  • If I claim bankruptcy can I include an alimony judgement?

    I pay allot of alimony per month to my ex. I'm considering filing for bankruptcy protection for unsecured and secured debt. What will happen to my alimony obligation?

    Max’s Answer

    You cannot discharge alimony or child support or intentional criminal acts that have resulted in criminal restitution orders or student loans or technically acts of fraud that you have perpetrated to steal, coerce or coax money from another party or any damages caused by intentional torts and finally reckless acts (which is the most difficult to prove) Please feel free to contact us for any other questions or concerns. We would be happy to schedule a free consult.

    Max’s Answer

    If your creditors get a judgment against you, they can execute upon your bank account as they have done and take the money directly out. You have the opportunity to apply for an exemption before the money is released from the bank. The creditor can also put a lien on your home or any other property you own and they can eventually foreclose and take the property or force an auction of the property. They can also garnish your wages. Bankruptcy, if you can apply, will get rid of most judgments and discharge most debts. Feel free to contact us for further information.

    Max’s Answer

    Do you remember when Benjamin Franklin said a stitch in time saves nine? If you had used an attorney when she started cohabitating with somebody and filed a motion to modify, perhaps you might have been able to stop the payments of alimony. At this point you have an uphill battle. If you would like to consults with a local Bridgeport/Stratford family attorney please feel free to contact our offices.

  • Is additional consideration required for contract reformation under CT law?

    In Connecticut, is additional consideration needed to reform a contract? A vendor promised expedited service in writing due to poor customer service (lack of response, poor response time), but I did not provide any compensation for this expedited ...

    Max’s Answer

    Look to tell four corners of the contract. The contract should lay out everything that you need to know regarding the legality of the matter. You might be well advised to see an attorney with experience with contracts to review the document. Otherwise the answer my colleagues left here is also very adroit.

    Max’s Answer

    There is nothing preventing you from getting married regardless of your K-1. However, getting married will not insure citizenship. As the other attorney here has already noted there are other options to obtain citizenship but do not concern marriage. You would be well advised to seek experienced immigration counsel
