I agree with my colleagues that you need to hire an attorney to help you with this situation, as soon as possible. If you cannot afford an attorney, Legal Aid of Arkansas has some online resources that may be helpful to you. In a few situations, Legal Aid will even provide a free attorney.
Even though you have been granted a continuance, please do not wait until the last minute to find representation. There are many good attorneys on Avvo. Try finding one who offers free consultations....
It is very common for claims to be denied, even though the claimant is disabled and "qualifies" for SSI or SSDI. In fact, most social security disability claims are denied the first time they are filed.
A social security disability attorney can make the application and appeals process a little easier for claimants, and usually even increase the chance that a claim or appeal will be approved. Social security lawyers know how to gather the correct type of evidence, handle witnesses, and...
You will need to look at the contract that you signed to see if there is a military clause in it. If you contact a local contracts or real estate attorney, he or she can look at your lease-to-own contract and tell you what your options are.
I agree with my colleague, Mr. Hill. The easiest way to resolve this issue is to pay the debt or return the items.
Arkansas Legal Aid has compiled some very helpful information on Debt Collection, and how to handle the issue yourself if you cannot afford an attorney.
Creditors are allowed to call you at work, unless you tell them not to. You may want to send them a letter telling them to stop contacting you at work....
Call your local social security office and ask them what you need to do to correct the name on your card. They will probably want to see a court order with your new/correct name on it.

Even though the name you want to use is already on your birth certificate, this court order will help make the change a...
You will need to carefully read your lease to see exactly what was promised and what remedies you have available to you. See if you can negotiate an acceptable arrangement with the landlord. Perhaps he will prorate the first month or give you a discount, due to your inconvenience. However, unless the lease provides for a refund if the apartment is not ready on time, a full refund is probably not realistic. If the landlord refuses to work with you and you are still unable to access the...
Student loans can not be discharged through bankruptcy, except for the very difficult to prove "undue hardship."
The bankruptcy court usually considers the following to determine whether there is undue hardship:
- You cannot pay your student loans and maintain a minimal standard of living
- Your circumstances (often disability related) are such that the hardship is long-term and beyond your ability to change
- You have made good faith efforts to repay your student loans
The first thing you should do is contact the attorney who is helping you, and ask him or her all of these questions. Your attorney should help you understand what you are agreeing to and what to expect.
