    It depends on whether your jurisdiction requires amended schedules based upon a change in circumstances. Additionally, it would make a difference if your case is a 100% case or a composition case. I would suggest calling your attiorney and running the issue by him/her to make sure you are doing what you are required to do in reporting or not reporting.

    I too agree that these wages are exempt from garnishment. However if these funds are in a bank account, a creditor can issue a garnishment to that bank and it becomes your burden to prove that those funds were social security and ssi funds. Also, if those funds are co-mingled with another persons funds in a joint account, then all funds become subject to the garnishment order.

    This is definitely something you need to look in to. In Alabama, medical malpractice claims are very difficult and expensive to pursue and even more difficult to win. However, in a case like this, I think the stronger claim would be a products liability claim again the manufacturer of the dye. It is very important that you get legal counsel regarding your rights and what claims you may have. I would be more than happy to discuss this with you further and direct you toward resources to help...

    Yes, by all means. It is very important that you know your rights and have someone who is capable of valuing your damages and your potential for recovery advise you. Many times, defendants prey on potential plaintiffs and take advantage of their desire for a quick settlement and therefore undermine the true worth of a claim to save money. The defendant does not have your family's best interests in mind, only the best value they can obtain in putting this matter to a quick rest.

    Filing a bankruptcy, either chapter 7 or chapter 13, will stop a foreclosure, if you have not had 2 or more prior cases pending and dismissed within the past year. I would not suggest, however, that you file a bankruptcy just to buy time because that would be a bad faith filing and could jeopardize your right to file again in the future. A bankruptcy can provide many benefits, first and foremost the automatic stay given by the court upon filing. This stay prohibits collection actions of...

    You can file a chapter 7 every 8 years. That is 8 years from file date to file date. If you have not had any other discharges (chapter 13) since the discharge of the 7 you could file another 7 eight years from the date your last case was filed.

  7. What is the statue of limitations on a credit card debt in Alabama ?

    1. The Alabama statute of limitations for credit cards and other similar debts is three years from the date of the last payment or charge. 2. The statute is six years under a stated account (or account stated) theory. Many debt collectors will argue this is the correct statute but it can be easily disproven. This is from the last charge or payment. 3. Additionally, the laws of the state that control the credit card agreement may give you the statute of limitations. For example, if you have a...

    I would send a certified letter, and a copy by regular mail, requesting a response and giving him 7-10 days to get back with you. I would set out in the letter that you don't want to go to the Bar Association but will be forced to if he doesn't communicate with you. I would also ask for an itemized statement of any charges to your client account and a breakdown of any fees you are being billed for, along with a statement on the balance of your retainer. If you do not hear from him, you need...

    You can always get a second opinion from another attorney. There are many options available under the bankruptcy code. There are many different ways to structure a plan. A plan does not always have to pay creditors 100%. Some attorneys are not comfortable proposing plans that pay less than 100%. A chapter 7 may also be an option for you. Bankruptcy is a big step and you need to make sure that you are well informed of all the options available and that the attorney you choose is someone...
