    The SOL is 3-6 years from your last payment usually depending on the state and type of debt and depending on who is collecting it. There are some debts that have a longer SOL such as child support, taxes and criminal restitution. If the debt is overwhelming you, you might want to contact a bankruptcy attorney.

    Yes. We can file a Chapter 13. How much you have to pay in the 13 will depend on how much you have In the way of assets and debts. We can usually get it filed in a day or two depending on how quickly you can come in and get the information and documents to us. We can get the garnishment stopped pretty quickly and sometimes get some of the garnishment money back depending on the date the bankruptcy is filed, the date the garnishment hit, the date the pay period was that was hit with the...

    It is a very tricky situation to say "I can work" and get unemployment to one government agency and to another government agency to say "I can't work". As the other attorney has indicated there are situations where you can, but it has to be handled very carefully. I assume that since you say your anxiety is severe you are getting medical treatment for it and your combination of impairments? My advice is to make an appointment and talk to an attorney such as myself, who handles social...

    Contact an attorney immediately to see if your family income will allow you to lower the payment by filing a debtor court. If for example your spouse works and you have a high interest rate on your vehicle then in a debtor court we can put your car at 5% interest and sometimes you can bankrupt on your credit card interest. What you can do depends on your income, assets and debts. An attorney that handles this will usually be the best money you can spend.

    If the court order states that she is supposed to let the child visit your husband needs to take her back for contempt. If the court order states that the two parties are supposed to alternate the tax deduction each year, then he needs to take her back for contempt. If he sits back and does nothing, nothing will be done. It does sound like fraud is being committed by her. Your husband also needs to go to the IRS and report this problem. I would immediately start by writing her a letter and...

    Have you applied for supplemental security income for her so she can receive a monthly check? If not, call 1-800-772-1213 and help her make an application for SSI. This will start the process. I will be glad to assist you with this process. Also is her father on disability or retired himself? She might be able to draw benefits off of him if so. For an action for post minority support you would have had to have taken him back before she turned 19. Also you can call 205-290-4400 which is...
