    It's tough to be a teenager, and being the oldest, you're probably right that your parents are hardest on you. They're trying to prepare you for life on your own. You don't say where you are in school, but one goal of your parents may be to have you home until you graduate, so they know you are on your way to a successful future. As the mother of a teenage girl, I read your comment that your boyfriend's parents understand, and was immediately concerned. I'm sure they are wonderful people,...

    Call them and tell them you are not going to reaffirm, and they can come pick it up. Tell them to give you a day, and a window of time when they'll come get it. Most likely, they won't, but they might!

    I suggest you confer directly with an attorney before you file. The attorney can ask questions to help him/her give you better answers. For example, when you say "he is volatile" - are you and the children in danger? If so a restraining order might be necessary. What funds do you have in accounts? If you have funds that are accessible but not necessary for day to day payment of bills, it might be okay for you to move some of those funds to another account in case all other accounts are...

  4. What happens to a personal injury settlement in a Chapter 13? Can you drop the 13 and just pay off your debts out of court?

    Your personal injury settlement may be exempt in the bankruptcy. The amounts given to you for pain and suffering and for future wages are protected. The amounts given to you for past due wages become property of the bankruptcy estate and will need to be given to the Trustee, who will use those funds to pay toward your debts. If those amounts pay your debts in full, your bankruptcy will be closed. If you still have monies owing, you'll need to amend your payment plan and finish out the...

    I am so sorry this happened to you. Unfortunately, what the other attorneys who responded and I are doing right now is cringing, because it is highly possible that not one dime of your "debt settlement" money actually went to the creditors. If that is true, then you are out the money you paid, and you still owe those debts as well as accumulating interest. However, if those companies did receive any money from your settlement company, then you deserve credit for those payments made. I...

    If Colorado suspended your license, then they have communicated with the Motor Vehicle department in Maine. You would have to contact the DMV in Maine to find out when/whether they have taken action. I'm not sure how they will notify you when they finally get the information and put you in their system. You still need to complete all of your requirements in Colorado for that court case. Then keep in touch with the DMV in Maine (make sure they have your correct mailing address) so that...

  7. How do I go about garnishing my ex's wages when he is in a different state?

    Because your divorce occurred here, you can handle the garnishment proceedings here. You need to file a form for "INCOME WITHHOLDING FOR SUPPORT" It is form JDF 1804. I couldn't find it on the court's webpage, but if you google "jdf 1804 Colorado" you do get the form, and the directions. This form is then filed with the court, signed by the judge and returned to you. You must then serve your ex husband's employer, and they will start withholding the money from his paycheck. If you need...

    I am so sorry - what a heartbreaking discovery. I don't know when you moved to Colorado. If it was over 6 months ago, then Colorado currently has jurisdiction over your children, and if you pick up and move back to another state then your Husband could file for divorce (or legal separation) here and you would be forced to return to Colorado to fight the case. If you have lived here less than six months, then there is a question of who has jurisdiction. In Colorado we have divorce (...

    If you have an attorney, please speak with your attorney so you can prepare testimony for the hearing around what the income really is. If you do not have an attorney, please consider subpoenaing someone from his employer (HR department) who can testify to what your ex husband's true income is, the nature of the furloughs, and whether or not they have taken affect. You cannot testify to those items, and your ex husband may lie.

    Hopefully, by these posts you are seeing that continuing this relationship is really not wise. This young lady has gotten into a serious relationship with a young man considerably older than she, and she has done so at a very young age. It often occurs that girls get into serious relationships with boys without a lot of input or discussion with their parents, or an older female who can openly talk to her about sexual relations and the emotional effect those take on females specifically....
