    It is very unlikely that the Trustee would take any portion of your 2011 tax returns given the timing of your filing so early in the year. The issue would more likely be your 2010 refunds, which would be 100% part of your bankruptcy estate if not received prior to filing. Assuming, however, you are concerned about your 2011 refunds in order to figure out how much you will have to turn over to the Trustee you will need to wait until the end of 2011 when you prepare your 2011 returns. Then take...

    I am not so sure the prior answer is correct. The practice of law in Arizona is regulated by the Arizona Supreme Court. If you read Arizona Supreme Court Rule 31(b) is states: (b) Authority to Practice. Except as hereinafter provided in section (d), no person shall practice law in this state or represent in any way that he or she may practice law in this state unless the person is an active member of the state bar. The key here is to check whether there is an exemption in Section D for...

    Since you have financing lined up you are not really damaged by these sharp sales tactics because you do not have to accept what the dealer says--you can just use your external financing. The dealer is, however, required to provide you certain information pursuant to the Fair Credit Reporting Act. The dealer must supply the name of the credit bureau they contacted. Some dealers send these notices by mail a few days after a denial. You also have the right to get a free copy of your credit report...

    The answer depends on a number of factors such as how the title is held, when the couple was married, and whether there are any wills or trusts involved. You definitely need to consult with an estate planning attorney.

    I am very sorry to hear about your father. You are going to need a Colorado attorney to prepare whatever estate planning and and of life documents are necessary. You can either engage a Colorado attorney directly or get a local Arizona attorney to associate with one to accomplish what needs to be done. Because your father will be the one granting you rights and he lives in Colorado, this will need to be done in conformance with Colorado law.

    I agree with Ms. Srednicki's response. Text's can be used in court provided that the party wishing to use them can meet certain foundational evidentiary hurdles. These types of issues are best addressed by a competent family law attorney.

    In most cases Trustees in Arizona will require you to send them a copy of both returns and the refund check. You cannot offset with your federal liability. However, given the small amount of your state refund it is possible that the Trustee will abandon it. I would call your Trustee and ask him/her whether they want you to send it in or not. In the meantime, do not endorse or deposit your state refund check.

    It depends on the nature of the contract you signed. Arizona has a pretty strict Motor Vehicle Time Sales Disclosure Act (("MVSDA") that applies to sales of cars on finance. Most dealer contracts are retail installment sales contracts meaning that there is a financing aspect to the transaction. In your case, I am not sure what type of contract you signed because you indicate that you were obtaining third-party financing through your credit union. That being said, if the dealer is now going to...

  9. For non-judicial foreclosures in AZ, is it true that a HELOC lender cannot come after you for a deficiency?

    1. Hamid Jabbar
    1 lawyer answer

    Unfortunately, there is no easy answer to your broader question. Most attorneys would say that you are protected by the anti-deficiency statute in a non-judicial sale if your property is a qualifying property (i.e. single one-family or two-family residence on less than 2.5 acres) regardless of whether the loan was purchase money. The problem is that the case law in this area of law is sparse. You really need to ask yourself two questions: (1) Does your property meet the criteria for a "...

    You should hire an attorney or get one appointed by the court if you cannot afford one. There may be substantive defenses to the crime, but that would require an attorney research the elements of the crime you are charged with and learn the specifics of your case. All that being said, your actions (i.e. paying back the money) should go a long ways towards getting you a very favorable plea bargain if you decide to go that route.
