    This is a case that is tailor made for your divorce attorney, who is already familiar with the facts of your case. If I were you I would contact him or her immediately to seek advice. If you did not have an attorney, I would contact a family law attorney immediately for advice.

    What you are dealing with is very common in the hospitality industry, especially when establishments that serve alcohol are involved. The Texas Deceptive Trade Practices Act might provide you with a means to make this a more serious issue, though I think that you should definitely meet with a lawyer to thoroughly discuss such a case.

    I would be very, very careful about how I addressed this situation if I was you and/or your mom. I think it would be a good idea to seek both a financial planner and a lawyer's advice prior to making any decisions in this situation.

    In Texas, settlement agreements are binding contracts. If you accepted the creditor's offer in compromise and then performed under that settlement agreement (i.e. you paid as promised and did so on time), then you would have an excellent defense to the alleged creditor's claim against you, and maybe even a claim against the debt collector and creditor for violations of the federal and state fair debt collection practices acts. Also, be sure to locate and preserve your settlement agreement....

    Sending the attorney a certified letter addressing your concerns wouldn't be a bad idea either.

    Collection agencies in Texas are typically non-law firms that are employed by creditors to collect debts by non-lawsuit means. They don't have to accept any offer that you make them and vice versa. If the creditor chooses to file suit, it will likely employ a collection law firm to do so. You will probably know when this happens because in Texas, such a law firm will generally send a demand letter 30 days or so prior to filing suit in an effort to perfect the creditor's claim for attorney's...

    If you have a written offer of settlement from them and you accept and perform under that settlement agreement (i.e. you pay them timely) I would think that you are good to go.

    I believe that this is a question best answered in person by a lawyer who focuses on real estate law. Said lawyer needs the opportunity to review all documents and correspondence related to your situation and to visit with you in depth about any agreements (in writing and otherwise) that you may have. Good luck to you.

    It all depends on which jurisdiction's law applies. There may be a mandatory choice of law clause in your contract. If so, it will be up to either you or the creditor to invoke the rights rendered by the clause (don't count on the creditor doing so if to do so would be unfavorable to them). It would be a good idea to contact a local attorney to analyze this issue.
