    You are on a short time frame. You should call a litigation attorney to review the agreement and see whether it is better to defend the matter or attempt to settle.

    You should probably talk with a bankruptcy attorney. You may also want to bring the credit report to the consultation. Older debts can be collected on if the creditor had obtained a judgment against you before the statute of limitation had passed. The attorney can let you know which debts are still collectable based on the report.

    You need to meet with a bankruptcy lawyer. Utah law has limits on the amount of equity you can claim under homestead exemptions. Whether you sold the house or filed bankruptcy, you could create liability for yourself. Most bankruptcy lawyers, like at my office, do offer free initial consultations.

    You should meet with a bankruptcy lawyer. Most bankruptcy lawyers will give you a free initial consultation. You can face some financial consequences with either option. The attorney can help you understand the pros and cons of either filing first or selling first. My office is in South Jordan.

    You probably should meet with a lawyer and have the lawyer review the paperwork. A bankruptcy attorney will likely review the paperwork for free since people getting served often file bankruptcy in order to avoid getting their wages garnished.

    Typically one creditor garnishes a debtor's paycheck at a given time. You need to talk with an attorney soon to see if things are amiss. Most bankruptcy attorneys will offer you a free initial consultation. If the garnishments are being done incorrectly, you will have options to address the mistake.

  8. If I file a chapter 13 here in Utah, will it save me from a tax levy?

    It depends. You should talk with a bankruptcy attorney soon if you are planning to file taxes any time soon. A Chapter 13 filing will initiate the automatic stay. This stay will protect you from having your creditors attempt any collection activity, including a tax levy. But there are various things to consider. You should call an attorney and schedule a consultation. Offices like mine offer them for free.

    The legal guardians have strict guidelines on how to spend the trust money. If you suspect money is being used inappropriately, you may want to meet with an attorney. Most lawyers, like my office, are willing to provide a free consultation to assess whether a good case exists.

    That's a good question. Some times banks will hold off foreclosing even though the borrower filed bankruptcy. You probably should call the attorney who filed bankruptcy for you for advice. You are now being fined by the city and this may be a problem for you for some time. Most attorneys, like at my office, do provide free consultations.
