Most of the time you can keep your house in bankruptcy. However you have to continue making payments. If you are really far behind in payments, you can file a chapter 13 bankruptcy which will allow you to catch up with your missed payments over 5 years.
You can contact my office for an in person consultion.
Depending on your record, you may be able to get into drug court or PTI. The municipal case may be dismissed if you in fact had the syringe for legitimate purpose. The fraudulent use of the debit card is likely a 3rd degree crime (felony) but if you have a decent record you may either get drug court/PTI or probation.
You should have an in-depth consultation with an attorney. Many attorneys including myself offer free consultations. Best of luck!
Since you already moved away from SC, you might not be able to file over there. This depends on SC law regarding residency. Your spouse could file however since he/she is still a resident of SC. As for NJ, you would have to wait another 6 months before you can file here
You should consult a DUI attorney. Based on what you are describing, you probably have a good chance of getting off on the DUI ticket and the other two can be plea bargained. I would need to take a look at the police report and the drug/alcohol test before determining your chances of beating the DUI charge.
An attorney would be able to reduce or eliminate the points. Taking 5 points on your record is pretty bad and you will certainly get increased insurance premiums. It is well worth it to hire an attorney for a case like yours
I agree with Mr Abate. You need an attorney on something like this to have any hope of keeping your license. Give him a call, he is a very good traffic attorney. Even with an attorney it is likely that you will get a suspension for a short period

As Mr. Mark said, it depends on whether or not the complaint has been filed against you. If it has been you should contact a lawyer ASAP to avoid being arrested and possibly held in jail until a bail hearing.
If not, and it was just a warning, you dont have to do anything
If you have 2 speeding tickets in such a short time, it is very likely that your insurance rates will go up. This is exactly what insurance companies look for when they raise your rates.
It is very likely that if you hire an attorney, both of these tickets can be resolved without points on your DL which will help you avoid the raise insurance premiums.
I can represent you for both tickets if you are looking to hire an attorney. You can reach my office at 551-427-4428
A judgment is good for 20 years in NJ. You may be able to file a motion to vacate the judgment but since it has been so long, it is not very likely that it would be granted unless you have a very good reason why the case should be re-opened.
You could also have an attorney try to negotiate with the creditor to work out a payments plan. Or you could file a bankruptcy which will wipe out the judgment.
