    The order is closing the state court proceeding. Once the discharge is granted in your bankruptcy, the state court case will be dismissed. Jeff

    It is certainly possible that you won't serve jail time, as this is your first offense. You are eligible to have any sentence suspended. In that event, you would serve probation. Jeff

    Depending on the charge, if you get a lawyer, you may avoid having to appear. I would make sure this is posted for an Illinois lawyer to see.

    The short answer is, the only way to get your name off of the mortgage obligation is for home to be refinanced. It doesn't sound like this was dealt with in your divorce decree. It should have been. However, even if it had been in the decree & the exact same circumstances would have arisen there still would not be a lot of good options. If you have any credit problems, or debt that is causing you problems, you may want to consult with a bankruptcy attorney. If you were to file bankruptcy,...

    The bankruptcy card effectively trumps everything else going on in this case. The creditors will come after you once the case is discharged. Your only choice will to be to file bankruptcy too, if you cannot pay the debt. The divorce court will not be able to hold him in contempt, because he did try to refinance the mortgage and comply with his obligations under the decree. I'm sorry to be so bleak, but I see it all the time. You need to have a free consultation with a bankruptcy...

    One of the things and attorney can obtain for you is a conditional license. That license allows you to serve a 30 day suspension vs a 90 day suspension. better yet, if you're County allows an ignition interlock device, you don't have to be suspended at all. That won't help if you have to drive client vehicles. But, in attorney who practices in your local county will know if it's possible to get the charge down to a reckless driving or a public intoxication. Those are very fact specific and...

    Indiana just passed a law this summer to allow expungement of D Felonies. The law is codified at Indiana Code sec. 35-38-8-1 to 7. You are eligible for Expungement eight years after your case is resolved. If there was probation, it will likely be eight years from the date you completed the probation. You will need a local lawyer to facilitate this for you.

    First, you should speak with a competent chapter 13 lawyer to see if you could convert to a Chapter 7. This is a bit like trying to dance on the head of a pin because you are trying to balance a great deal of things, such as protecting property, preserving your law-suit, and getting a discharge. You also need to consider whether you can dismiss your CH 13 and remain judgment proof while you pursue a personal injury action. If you are no longer in contact with your attorney, we practice both...

  10. Hello, I have a home mortgage that is 3 months behind as well as other credit bills. Will filing bankruptcy stop a foreclosure?

    Yes, filing bankruptcy will stop foreclosure. It is the most efficient option as compared with trying to work something out with the bank. Also, because you are in arrears on the home, you will have to file a Chapter 13 debt repayment plan. The reason is that if you file a chapter 7, and have an arrearage, the bank does not have to let you keep the home. Whereas in a Chapter 13 they have to let you keep it, if you can afford the payments. Chapter 13 plans are complex, so you should definitely...
