    To answer the question you actually asked, no, credit card companies cannot "get" the money from the sale of the house. Even if the credit card debt had been reduced to a judgment, such a judgment is not a lien on a homestead in Texas. Credit card debt is personal debt and could result in a judgment against your mother, but they cannot collect it from her homestead/house. Sharon Campbell www.dallasconsumerattorney.com

    Yes, you have a cause of action, especially if it is causing late payments to be reported on your credit report. Feel free to give me a call or email me with more details. Thanks, Scott! Sharon@dallasconsumerattorney.com

    Yes, this is illegal in the State of Texas. You have grounds for suit under the Texas Deceptive Trade Practices Act. To find a lawyer who practices in El Paso, I suggest checking the legal directory at www.naca.net (National Association of Consumer Advocates)

    You need to "prove" what your damages are. In order to do this, you will need to know what admissible evidence is and how to move to admit evidence. In County Court, you are required to follow the Rules of Civil Procedure and Rules of Evidence. You really need an attorney for this.

    While I agree with the previous posters that there are likely both state and federal violations, this fact pattern sounds like many stories I have heard from clients and read about. There is a good chance that the calls are coming from out of the country or from a source which cannot be traced and therefore not subject to being sued. This is very common in the payday loan situation. If she did not tell you the name of the agency or company she was calling from or you can't google the phone...

    Litigation is a serious matter; you are subject to all the rules of procedure and rules of evidence whether you are pro se (representing yourself) or have a lawyer. Representing yourself, you are at a distinct disadvantage. Hiring a lawyer who has experience in these type cases will greatly increase your chances at trial. There are defenses which may be raised and burdens of proof the debt collector plaintiff has. I am another Dallas lawyer who has experience in this area. Please call either...

    This question will be covered by the Fair Credit Reporting Act and whether or not you can sue for damages already accrued after you got the main problem fixed will depend on what, if any, dispute letters you sent and when you sent them. A complete answer would require an examination of your credit report and any written disputes.

    The lawsuit itself will not be reported on your credit report. The debt may be reported on your credit report for 7 years from date of last activity. The statute of limitations for suing is 4 years. If they obtain a judgment, the judgment will be reported for 10 years. You should make every effort to avoid that. An attorney experienced in defending collection suits can help you and if there is a potential counterclaim for filing outside the statute, so much the better. Whatever you do, don't...

    If the apartment is your residence address, then it is appropriate to list that with your employer. If you are asking whether you can be sued for eviction or lease related violations, not likely, since you are not a tenant per the lease with the landlord. If you cause some damage to the apartment or commit some other legal act, you are subject to suit. Not being an official tenant on the lease does pose some risk for you.
