You need to call an attorney quickly. There can be various reasons why a trustee would be "coming after" you, including the unauthorized practice of law. Most attorneys will offer consultations. This is a serious matter.See question
I sent some of the money but have not had stable employment for six years so I could not make a commitment monthly to a specific amount they requested. Different collection agencies have sent requests by mail for an ever increasing amount due to d...
You should probably talk with an attorney sooner than later. They have the right to enter a judgment against you for failing to pay the auto loan contract as agreed when you initially purchased your car. By making payments as you can, however, you may actually be doing yourself a disservice.See question

You may want to call the collection agency representing Capital One and ask for a continuance. They may just say "no", but it's worth a call.See question
I'm 2 months behind on my payment plan. I was planning to make a payment on my bankruptcy today. I received a letter in the mail for a motion to dismiss my case. Should I wait on making my payment? Or can I still send it?
Plan on making your payment as soon as possible. You should call your bankruptcy attorney about filing a objection to the court's motion to dismiss your case. Your attorney may likely charge you for the motion; but the attorney may be able to submit a fee application that will help you avoid paying out of pocket for the objection. Either way, call your attorney quickly.See question
3 different companies are garnishing my check at the same time
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.See question
The fees are incorrect and I need help in fighting this and it not showing up on my credit.
It's common for collection agencies to try to charge high interest rates on old bills. But the rates need to be correct. You will need to pay attention to any court hearings from this creditor so that the creditor does not get a default judgment. Many bankruptcy attorneys, like my office, offer free consultations. You may want to contact a lawyer to review the old cell phone company bill.See question

A creditor can levy bank accounts of a debtor if the creditor gets a judgment against the debtor and then goes to court a second time to collect on that judgment. Often dectors fail to go to court and the creditor gets a default judgment. You should probably talk with a bankruptcy attorney about options to verify if this levy was done correctly and if you are at risk for an additional levy on the account.See question

I don't think you are going to have much luck talking with a judge at this time. When you purchased your house, you entered into a contract to pay a mortgage. If the lender is foreclosing, they will usually several months of non-payment before foreclosing. You may be better off meeting with a bankruptcy attorney who can give you options. Some bankruptcy attorneys offer free initial consultations. But you should try to meet with a few bankruptcy attorneys very soon.See question
My husband (we are separated) neglected to pay the mortgage so we now have a sale date 20 days away. I found out 4 days ago when the sheriff showed up at the door. I can bring the house current but it will take every penny I have and I have since ...
You may want to talk with a bankruptcy attorney in St. George about Chapter 13 options, which may include an opportunity to lien strip the IRS lien if the 1st mortgage is upside-down on the property. It likely won't get rid of the tax liability but may create more options for you. The bankruptcy attorney should be able to explain the pros and cons of your various options.See question
