the Collection agency is now telling me that the amount due now is over $11k . Am i required to pay when I never received this notification of judgement?
Judgments in NY accrue simple interest at the rate of 9% per annum. If a judicial enforcement agent is used to collect the debt they are entitled to an additional 5% poundage.
I have a garnishment on me from a creditor. They are taking the 10% the law says they can but its to much for me to afford all of my living expenses. I have to pick and choose which bills to pay and when most of which are late anyway because of th...
You may be able to settle for a reduced lump sum payment if you can afford to do so. Contact the creditor's attorney to discuss.
I served a lawsuit on the secretary of state in NY for a NY corporation on November 13 2015. Statute of Limitations runs out on November 19,2015. Was my service considered complete the date I served the lawsuit on secretary of State? Or did I wai...
I'm going to answer the question you asked, rather than the one others presume you asked (although their presumption may be correct). Service is complete 10 days after filing an affidavit of service with the clerk of the court where the action is commenced. In other words, serving the Secretary of State is insufficient. The individual who served the Secretary of State must complete the proper affidavit of service upon a corporation and then that affidavit must be filed with the clerk.
I began paying my debt with Midland Funding LLC about a year and stopped receiving statements for over 2 months. I just received a notice of garnishment even though I was never contacted about my payments for the past several months. What can I do?
It sounds as if you are acknowledging the debt, and even the judgment. Accordingly, the creditor is entitled to garnish up to 10% of your gross earnings per pay period. Since a bird in the hand is worth two in the bush, you may wish to contact the lawyer for the judgment creditor to see if they will accept a reduced lump sum rather than awaiting payment over time. Be aware that you will also be responsible for an additional 5% poundage to the Marshal and interest accrues at 9%.
I ran a title search on a home which is not listed in the Nassau county clerks office, the land is currently owned by a small corporation and the lot is listed as a vacant lot at the clerks office. They built a house there since 2008 and rent it. ...
You would need to search for a certificate of occupancy and building permits. It would be a code violation to occupy without the necessary certificates and permits.
Superior court or with county recorder, or somewhere else?
If it is based upon the merits, the exemplified judgment is docketed with the county clerk where property is located. If the judgment was entered on default then a motion for summary judgment in lieu of complaint must be filed in the county where the debtor resides or has assets in NY state.
Long story short i won a judgment against someone i payed for work that never done it. He has yet to pay the judgment and it's well over 30 days from the date it was awarded. I went and did some other paperwork (i forget the name) which puts a lie...
Prepare an Income Execution for the Sheriff of the county in which the debtor resides to serve Stage I. If debtor defaults, you may then deliver the Income Execution to be served on the employer with the Sheriff of the County where the debtor is employed. National Grid will have an address dedicated for the receipt of wage garnishments.
Can a tenant deduct bedbug extermination from their rent in a two family house where the landlord doesn't reside which ocurred four years ago?

I am filing an inquest and want to know if the defendant can still move forward even though she missed the deadline and what would be my next course of action besides the inquest
Understand that the 30 day deadline really starts 10 days after the affidavit of service is filed with the clerk.
I made a motion to compel re: discovery. In court we stipulated dates. Opposing counsel never submitted paperwork to the court confirming those dates. We've tried to agree since with no results. I had a meeting with opposing counsel since to agre...
Discovery proceedings can be very difficult. You should probably consult with an attorney as the other side may be taking advantage of your inexperience.
