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.See question

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.See question

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 counselSee question
My roommate said his key was not working and I didn't answer his calls last night. Then he cut the window screen and entered the apartment. Is it legal for him to do this? Would there be any problem if I call for maintenance?
It is never a crime to break into your own home. As long as he did not create any property damage to your personal property, you have no claim against him. You may call maintenance to replace the screen. I would ask that the roommates pay for the repairs if there's any cost.See question
