    I agree with my colleagues. In short, you cannot be prevented from getting a student loan simply because of a past bankruptcy. Further, student loans can be discharged in bankruptcy only when there are special circumstances.

    To sum up my colleagues statements, which I agree with, since it is more than four years since you filed chapter seven you may currently file a chapter 13 petition.

    Your bankruptcy case is definitely yours. Your attorney, like all attorneys, is simply your servant. If your attorney is not responding to you then perhaps you need one who will. Contact your local bar, or use Avvo, to find some names of good bankruptcy attorneys.

  4. How can I legally get out of my lease?

    In most cases, if you are on a month to month lease, you can get out of it by giving at least 45 days written notice. Review your lease document, if there is one, and get a landlord-tenant attorney.

    If you can make an argument that your new home is closer to your work then you should definitely be able to deduct the hotel stay.

  6. Does my mom need to pay taxes on my grandmothers mobile home if it is willed to her?

    I may be wrong here but I believe that this questioner is asking about property taxes, not estate taxes. If that is true then your mother will be liable for such property taxes on the mobile home when she gets it from your grandmother. You do need a good tax attorney who is in Minnesota. I happen to be in Eagan, MN.

    I agree with my colleagues that Offer in Compromise is probably not an available option in your circumstance and that negotiating a payment plan is a better option.

  8. Our tax preparer made a mistake with our 2010 tax filings and now the IRS wants us to pay a lot of money.

    First, the amount you owe strictly in taxes themselves is amount you owe, not your preparer. But, if your not paying this amount initially was due to professional error then the I.R.S. may excuse you from paying penalties.

    It depends greatly on how the firm you apply to sees such experience and how you deal with it. You should be honest and forthright and show how having this experience can bring positive value to a firm / client that hires you.

    While I agree with my colleagues you are not "legally required" in this country to choose the corporate form and entity. You are free to make the business decisions which best benefit you. But, as Mr. Potter notes, the corporate form may do that for you.
