Relatively small amount (less than $2000); I defaulted on a loan as I could not make payments, so technically it is a legitimate claim; I make less than 30 times GA state minimum wage weekly and cannot afford to pay back the total sum in question;...
When you admit the debt, or when you lose the case, there will be a judgmnent. It will not be paid at $25 a month. You will likely be garnisheed (about 25% of your paycheck). While it would not make sense to file bankruptcy over a $2000 debt, if you have other debts that may become a good idea. Even if you have to borrow from family and friends you nedd to be speaking to a lawyer. And if you have to file bankruptcy, the good news is you may be better off going forward. Simply do what many of my clients do - call mom, call friends, etc. - to help with fees.See question

Absent a court order and it is hard for a grandparent to win versus the mother, no. If they hire a lawyer, you need to hire one too. You will do better if you establish a quality home, get a good job and prove you can care for your child.See question
My ex-husband demanded a moral clause stating no overnight guests of the opposite sex until we're engaged. Because of the length of our separation and divorce proceedings, I was already in a serious relationship by the time the final papers were d...

We went into foreclosed on a home. The mortgage company took possession of the home. Now they have filed a civil suit. What should we do?
It sounds like they are seeking a deficiency or confirmation. You need to see a lawyer. In many cases the cheapest and easiest response will be filing bankruptcy.See question
could a lien be placed against our home after my death? State: Georgia
No but you need to see a lawyer and fix things. When you die, your bills may be payable out of your estate before your wife gets a share. While wills, reworded deeds and years support may minimize the problem, you are in serious need of good estate planning. Since you post has nothing to do with divorce where you posted it, I moved it to a new area of law.See question
I havent been served with legal papers or seen a judge just failed drug test
That would be the most foolish mistake of your life. If you have a chance of keeping your kids, fleeing a great way to wreck that chance. Instead of doing something foolish, call your lawyer today (and if you do not have one hire one today). You will be tracked down and found and the new state is very unlikely to have any sympathy for you. Let me also be frank with you - if you are failing DFCS ordered drig tasks, you are doing something very counterproductive. Clean up your act today.See question
We, the Board, sent an informal request for payment to the former owner of the property. While the statutory lien on the property title was wiped out and cleared, the former owner seems to think they are off the hook, but our covenants state that ...
First of all let me respectfully suggest that you resign from the board. A board without an attorney on retainer which tries to get advice on free advice sites is headed for disaster, and remember that you can be sued for breach of your fiduciary duty, part of which entails proper collection procedures. The request for payment to a formal owner may have violated the discharge, which can get you and the board sued. The bankruptcy may however not have erased liens which, depending on facts we do not have, may be collectable from someone. But given the risk to you personally for acting without counsel, see your lawyer, and quit the board unless they hire one.See question
While working on a chapter 13 plan, modified my mortgage. Consistently paid for the past three years. Bankruptcy was discharged now mortgage company is saying they never modified and I should have been paying $1000 more per month. They claim I am ...
This is an easy question. Modifications are only done in writing so you have a copy of the signed modification. Show them a copy. If they continue to play stupid, bring the copy to your lawyer.See question
I fell over a box that was left in the floor of a store. I went to the urgent care later that night because my back was sore. Can I get this store to pay my medical expenses.
You may or may not have a claim depending on whether (1) the store should have known the box was there and (2) whether you should have seen the box. See a lawyer ASAP to review the details.See question
