A judge in bankruptcy court told me I could not file bankruptcy without legal representation.
In general, you are allowed to act as your own attorney in bankruptcy. My guess is that if this order was issued it is because you did something very wrong when you filed previously. Judge's do not enter that kind of orders with respect to people who have not filed before. Given whatever problems led to the order, I would expect that the Court's order is constitutional.See question

As noted, this is not a job board. However, in general you can discharge tens of thousands of dollars worth of debt that you owe for less than $2,000. It is hard to find a better bargain than a bankruptcy attorney.See question

The best person to ask for a referral would be the attorney you were working with. Certainly they know attorneys who would not have the same conflict that they have. If that doesn't pan out, you will have to schedule a consultation with an attorney and explain your situation to determine whether it is something they might be interested in.See question

You certainly have a claim. If you know who the thief or thieves are, you are entitled to sue for three times the value of the stolen property and recovery any attorney fees and costs you incur in the litigation. The problem with the claim is that criminals are usually irresponsible people without a steady job or assets. This means that collecting on a civil judgment is likely to be very difficult.
In most cases, talking to the District Attorney about a restitution order will be the best you can reasonably do. However, if the thieves actually have money or income, you certainly have the right to sue them and obtain a judgment from the court.See question

First, you need to immediately file a motion to modify child support. If the current child support order is not appropriate under the current circumstances, you MUST file a motion to modify. Otherwise, you will continue to owe despite these changes and your problem will get bigger and bigger.
Second, you need to understand that child support arrears can involve an interest rate of 12% and it is too late to try to change any of the support that has already accrued. You can review the court orders and the child support records to determine if the calculations have been done correctly, but it is too late to argue that the support amounts should have been changed in the past. Congress passed a federal law in the 80s that prohibits modification of back child support.See question

In order to have a right to have kept ANY of the deposit, you will have to show the Court that you provided a written accounting that justified withholding within 30 days of the tenant's moving out. If you can do that and you can show that the damages which exceeded ordinary wear and tear were more than the deposit, then you are justified in keeping the deposit.
If the Court finds that you wrongfully withheld the deposit, you can be held responsible for three times the deposit plus any attorney fees the tenant incurred.See question
The victims in my case were the people of the state of Colorado . I plead guilty to the charges of theft from the dept of motor vehicles. I was told at my sentencing that there was restitution for the amount of fifty thousand dollars. I was told ...
Your "debt to society" is not a monetary payment. It is a term used to describe the punishment you receive for committing a crime. If you do the crime, you will be obligated to do a certain amount of time. This term is used for all sorts of crimes, even those that don't cause any sort of actual monetary loss.
Going to jail does not actually pay any actual monetary debt as it actually costs money to lock you up. The State doesn't make any sort of profit on your incarceration (quite the opposite in fact). Serving the time you were sentenced to for the crime you committed did nothing to repay the actual money (or property) that you stole.
Restitution involves paying for the monetary damage you did. If you steal $50,000 worth of vehicles, then you get ordered to repay the $50,000 that you stole. This is not a "debt to society", but a real monetary obligation to your victims related to the loss you actually caused to your victims. Restitution is limited to actual out of pocket costs. Victims cannot receive compensation for pain and suffering or other non-economic losses (such as the damage to society that lawlessness causes). From what you posted, it sounds like you caused an actual monetary loss of $50,000 through your theft and you are expected to make good on that debt. The fact that you stole from the government does not make the restitution you owe a debt to "society". Your monetary debt is owed to the victim you stole from. In your case, your victim just happens to be the government.See question
