    Your second sentence answered your question. As previously stated by my colleagues, insurance coverage excludes intentional acts.

    You said it yourself, you were the one being harassed. Unfortunately for you, this person has proof of your threat via your text message. Your case is likely winnable, but you need an experienced criminal defense attorney to represent you and get these charges dropped. Ensure you get some advice from an attorney before speaking with the police further.

  3. First, how much does it cost for a fairly simple Chapter 7 BK in Palm Springs, CA, or to have 1 CC default judgm negotiated.

    You should get a free consultation to ensure that bankruptcy is your best and/or only option. A lot depends on the plaintiff and the amount of the judgment. If BK7 is your best bet, you are looking at about $1500 for a decent attorney on a simple case. Also note that you will have to pay at $306 filing fee along with 2 counseling courses that run about $60 total. Ensure you know about these fees in addition to what the attorney charges you.

    I would require more information about this case to answer fully, but the claim that your family member is 51-50 will have to be decided at the jury trial. Time is of the essence here, and you should speak with an attorney in your area right away to see if a plea bargain can be beneficial to both sides or if going all the way to trial is the only option.

    Many times a law firm, especially a bankruptcy law firm, can get better results for you in regard to debt settlement than a debt settlement company. Especially considering your statement that you cannot get legal advice from them. We retain a significant number of clients who have attempted debt settlement though a company similar to one you described and end up paying several thousands of dollars in fees only to end up in a worse situation than when they started. Being that you are able to...

    You need to speak with the attorney that filed your case immediately. If you filed Pro Se, seek a free initial consultation to see if you need to hire an experienced Chapter 13 attorney. It is imperative to know when the Lift of Stay was granted. Is this something granted recently or several months/years ago? How far into your Chapter 13 are you? There is usually a reason a Lift of Stay is requested and subsequently granted. Did you miss any mortgage payments prior to the Motion for Lift...

  7. If I filed Chapter 13 bankruptcy in CO, can I convert to a Ch 7 in CA?

    Conversions are tough enough. Mixing in two different courts in separate states can end up with different results than you intend. Absolutely consult a local BK attorney but likely you will voluntarily dismiss your Chapter 13 case (very likely without the 180 bar preventing you from filing right away) and then refile your Chapter 7 case in CA once you are her the minimum 91 days. Don't do ANYTHING until you ensure you even qualify for the Chapter 7 or you will end up with no protections...

    First you should ensure a Chapter 13 is the best chapter for your situation. Central District Chapter 13 trustees are tough and having someone from out of the district is bad enough. Jumping through the hoops to try to get an out of state attorney to represent you is not recommended. They won't know our specific rules nor are they likely to attend your 341 and confirmation hearings which means you will be represented by an appearance attorney. Have you asked the FL attorney if she is willing...

    It sounds as if you remain in the home which means only the personally liability of the HOA debt was removed for the amount accrued up to the day you filed your petition. You are personally liable for all post-petition dues. That being said, HOA's are a tough bugger nowadays and we are dealing with HOA's more than ever before. Likely, they filed a lien against your property long before you filed bankruptcy which means they can foreclose on your home even if you are current on your mortgage. You...
