    The money your children receive on account of their father's disability is paid to them under the Social Security regulations. This money belongs to you and the children and is to be used for their support. In many instances, the proceeds from Social Security would not change the father's duty to pay support to his children. I would check with officials from the Family Court where you reside or seek legal advice from an attorney in the city where you reside. It's very possible the father's debt...

    Your son would need to sign a note and a mortgage. The mortgage would then need to be recorded. That would put a lien on your son's property. To secure a mortgage on his home you would need his consent. You should also have a lien search run to find out what other liens are already on his property. The title company or an attorney should be able to help you with this.

    Once you fall behind on a debt your credit record is marked for 7 years. Here you fell behind and were sued. There was a court hearing and a judgment was entered against you. This history of these events will most likely appear on your credit record for 7 years. Once the judgment is entered the creditor's attorney will look for assets to satisfy the judgment. What you should do now will depend on your circumstances. You can try to work out a repayment arrangement. If you have multiple...

    If you can find another job and obtain a steady source of income you may be able to file chapter 13. Chapter 13 will allow you to obtain an automatic stay and the creditor wont be able to take your car. But to be eligible for chapter 13 you need to be able to make the plan payments. If you can't afford to file chapter 13 you may be able work out an arrangement directly with the creditor. Since the car is a salvage car and you make the creditor aware of that, they may consent to a payment...

    I suggest you meet with a very good bankruptcy attorney. If you go on the site www.nacba.org you will find lawyers who are in the bankruptcy court everyday. There is a good chance you will be able to file a new case. With all the rules of the new Bankruptcy regulations its easy to miss a deadline. Collect all of your materials and make an appointment with an attorney who is a member of NACBA. I am sure they will take good care of you. And say jeffrey freedman from buffalo ny sent you.

  7. Can a child get both child support and social security disability payments?

    I have seen many cases where a child collects social security and is also entitled to the full amount of child support from a parent. How social security and support interplay with each other depends on the state that you live in. Its best to consult with an attorney who handles family law where you reside.

    I suggest you retain an attorney immediately. The law assumes that funds in an account are jointly owned by the people whose names are on the account. But the presumption may be rebuttable. If you can prove that the funds are owned by your child and your husband and not you, its possible to have the account released. It will not be easy and you will probably have an uphill battle. Get an appointment with an attorney immediately.

    You want to have a consulation with an attorney right away just in case you are charged. It is possible that you can be ticketed after an event if the police have proof you commited the offense. Anything you say about the incident can be used against you in court. So dont blog about this or discuss the incident except with your attorney.
