    Generally, errors can be fixed, as long as in good faith. Move quickly; and contact your attorney as soon as possible.

    The "last clear chance" doctrine frequently applies to a person not originally the cause of an accident, but that could have avoided it. A parked vehicle generally has no chance to avoid an accident . . .

    You need private counsel immediately. A person found drunk and hurt in his car, with no other person present, could easily be enough for a judge to conclude he was the driver. You need an attorney who is eager to go to trial, not one looking for a settlement on the DUI. And expect to pay above the rates for routine DUIs--this will be a lot of work. I have a partner who fits the description of what you need; he can usually get people in the same afternoon for a consult.

    The answer that your discharge wouldn't affect debt owed by your husband is not correct in a community property state such as California. While you *definitely* need local legal advice, as noted above, a discharge from one spouse prevents the other spouse's creditors from collecting from *either* spouse's income. The reason for this is that each spouse has a community property interest in the other's income, and that collecting from that would violate the filing spouse's discharge....

    You need a criminal attorney to defend against that ticket; if convicted, fault is established. Your description does not make it "clear" that it was not your fault, either--that would depend on local laws regarding such vehicles.

    This isn't what's killing your credit score; it's the bankruptcy and what happened before it. The highest I've seen within a year of discharge was a 701, and this one had reaffirmed debts and was nearly current at time of filing. The phones are useless. If Transunion didn't take it off at all, you probably didn't send it to the correct address. If, on the other hand, it provably went to the correct address (proof could be having come off and gone back on), I would be very interested...

    Your location isn't showing, and it could affect the answer. Generally, any entity/insurance paying your medicals will have a lien against your settlement (and medicare is brutal in this regard). If you have "medical payment" coverage, though, this generally does not impose a lien. Usually, providers will also work on a lien bases. However, there is significant variance from state to state as to what you do and don't have to reimburse.

    Generally speaking, a "family trust" is a revocable trust, nothing more than a way to avoid probate. The contingent or future beneficiaries generally have no right to anything from it, or even to be kept in it--the trustor's usually reserve the right to change this. And if the surviving trustor with that right has dementia, it is probably impossible for her to authorize any gifts from it; she would lack the capacity. The trustee must obey the terms of the trust; he has no authority to...
