You have no legal obligation to pay for the loan unless the financing company can produce documents stating your intent to pay. Creditors will sometimes use inappropriate tactics to scare you. So long as they have no documentation binding you to this loan, just ignore them. I suggest confronting them about what documentation they have that connects you to this case. If they can't produce any, ask them to leave you alone.
Just having the brass knuckles is illegal. What you need to do is hire an attorney. An attorney will be able to look at the circumstances of the detention and determine whether the conduct of the police officers was appropriate. If that is not the case, an attorney will at least help navigate through a potential plea deal or trial. Facing a criminal charge is one of the most negative experiences an individual can face; don't do it without an attorney.
You have to hire an attorney to help you through the situation. He already has a criminal history, so he may be facing some jail time. To answer your question, he is not allowed to leave the state while a case is pending, so if you were considering moving out of state, the answer is no.
Your fact pattern does not provide enough information to answer this question adequately. There are a lot of factors that need to be looked at before an answer can be given (i.e., what the divorce decree states, whether the home was refinanced, whether they foreclosed properly, whether they sued for the deficiency properly, etc.).

Speak to your local bar association and the state bar of Michigan about whether there are any resources available to you. There may be a legal aid or clinic in the area that may help you navigate through this. Bankruptcy is probably one of the most difficult areas to navigate through, and I do not recommend you do it without an attorney, and definitely not without some assistance.
Being on probation is considered a gift and is given in lieu of jail. Judges are not happy when someone violates the terms of his or her probation. At this stage, it is very important that he hires an attorney to explain to the Judge why he should be given a second chance at probation. He also needs to turn himself in as soon as possible.
You definitely want to hire an attorney if you are facing these charges in Rochester District Court. You are in one of the toughest courts in the tri-county area, and an attorney will help you navigate through your new charge and probation violation. While having the police on your side definitely doesn't hurt, it also doesn't really help a whole lot.
If the phone is in your possession when you are arrested, it is common that it will be confiscated and placed into evidence, along with all your other possessions--it's standard protocol. It's not necessarily the case that they confiscated it because they suspected it had any evidentiary value. You will know soon enough whether they did in fact obtain any evidence from that phone.

I do not recommend signing anything until you contact a personal injury attorney to discuss your options. Most personal injury attorneys will offer free consultations. An attorney will be able to evaluate your case and determine whether you should file suit, even if you have a pre-existing condition. Generally speaking, a settlement agreement bars your ability to pursue any case at all. Keep in mind, there is a statute of limitations, and you want to be sure to discuss the case with an...
