    It's not uncommond for an employer to request that an employee leaving the company sign a non-compete prior to leaving. You asked if it is "reasonble consideration" but didn't explain what that consideration was. It would be prudent to tell the employer that you will not sign the non-compete document at that time; but that you would like to take the document home with you for review. Then call an employment law attorney to review the document and background. Most attorneys will either...

    That sounds about right. It's likely that you already have a judgment against you and now the creditor is looking for assets on which to attach the judgment. That is, they are finding out if they can garnish your paycheck, put a judgment lien on your car, or try another collection effort. You probably should talk with an attorney. Most lawyers, like my office, offer free consultations. You also likely need to get moving on this quickly.

    Your loans at the credit union are likely cross-collateralized. So they may have a contract that you signed when getting the loans that allowed them to do that. You should talk with an experienced Chapter 13 attorney for a consult. A Chapter 13 provides additional legal remedies not found with Chapter 7 bankruptcy. Many attorneys, like my office, provides a free consultation. As for your son wanting to purchase the house, often banks do not want to allow family to purchase short...

    You should probably meet with an attorney. There are several factors, including whether you have a rental contract in place, the length of time for the rental period, whether you are current on rental payments, etc. If you can provide proof of making rental payments and the contract extends beyond the date of the sale, the bank may likely work with you to stay there until the end of your contract date. As for suing the landlord, you may have a claim. But they may turn around and file...

    Your unemployment claim is unrelated to your bankruptcy claim. If you qualify for and receive unemployment, you may still file for bankruptcy protection as well.

    If you have an attorney, ask them to talk with your creditor to ask for a continuance. If you are not represented, you may want to call the creditor and ask if they reschedule the hearing.

    You may be liable on the HOA fees even though you short-sold your house. Some attorneys, like my office, offer free consultations. You should bring the court summons paperwork to a lawyer and have the lawyer give you some advice.

    The question is a little vague. Who is he who is willing to continue to pay? Also, are you the lessor or lessee in the agreement. You may want to have an attorney review the lease agreement as to its legality and enforceability.
