    It sounds like you were taken in a scam. Did you review proper credentials? Did you make sure he was legitimate? I don't think any attorney will be able to help you. You may wish to contact the FBI or some governing authority.

  • Is it advisable to file Bankruptcy as an individual while married?

    Circumstances have arose where my fiancé and I are considering getting married sooner than we planned. I am in a 3 month waiting period for filing Chapter 7 Bankruptcy, which is over in November. I know it is possible to file for Bankruptcy as an ...

    Max’s Answer

    Your fiance's income will become part of your household income for the purposes of the bankruptcy when you marry. Therefore, you could wind up with a Means Test issue that could disqualify you from being able to file. It should be relatively easy for an experienced bankruptcy attorney to run the numbers and figure out if there is any danger of you losing your window of opportunity. Please feel free to consult with my office. We can tell you if it will endanger your ability to successfully file and obtain a discharge of your debt.

    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.

  • 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.
