    Was the case actually filed? If so you can file a notice of reconciliation I believe and stop it.

  • Where can I find a Quitclaim Deed? Do I really need an attorney for this?

    I need to add my fiance' to the title on my home.

    Brent’s Answer

    You can obtain the form to do a quit claim deed and do it yourself, however I strongly suggest you use an attorney to make sure it is done right. Should not cost a great deal.
    I also agree with the prior response that I am not sure why you would do it now as that would create a joint tenancy with a 50/50 ownership. The better course of action in my opinion is that if you still want to do it, wait until you are married and the transfer will create a tenancy by the entireties which offers much more protection.

    Brent’s Answer

    I would certainly consult with a consumer rights attorney. There are plenty of cases that address this and you may have some recourse if the dealer will not work with you.

    Brent’s Answer

    If the letter is directly from the apartment I would write a response. If it is from a collection agency I would consult with a consumer rights lawyer. You do not say if it is being reported on your credit, but if so you need to file a dispute with the CRA's.

    Brent’s Answer

    You said you got judgment but didn't specify if you were just awarded money or possession or both. If you were awarded possession prior to them filing bankruptcy you can have them removed. You should consult a bankruptcy attorney to be safe.

    Brent’s Answer

    You can possibly get some of it back in a bankruptcy depending on when the levy took place. You may have other rights if you were not served a copy of the levy. However, once you miss an agreed payment they are free to take legal action. I suggest you talk to a bankruptcy/consumer rights attorney asap

    Brent’s Answer

    You need to make an appointment for a consult with a bankruptcy attorney. Those are case specific questions that can not be answered with the provided information. Most of us offer free consults.

    Brent’s Answer

    This is likely a scam. I see it every day. They cannot arrest you for this and telling you so is a violation of the FDCPA. They can sue you and the statute of limitations is 6 years from default.

  • Do I still need to submit a sworn denial papers and what type of papers should I take to court with me? Thanks

    Hi, I am being sued by Midland funding in TN, my court date is January 15th. I was served a summon, it has an affidavit from a rep from Midland with it but nothing about filling any type of sworn denials.

    Brent’s Answer

    Under the law you can either submit a sworn denial or you can show up on the court date and deny it. I fight midland very often. If they can prove the debt is valid and correct (not easy) they should agree to a settlement or payment plan with you. I strongly advice you meet with a consumer rights/debt defense attorney to review your case.
