    Gary’s Answer

    With written proof of your payments, you should be able to get the wage assignment stopped by providing the proof to DCSS. Recovering the over payments would have to come from the recipient of the payments. An attorney would likely be able to get the best result with the least delay.

    Gary’s Answer

    If you continue to make the payments on the loan, you will be entitled to sell the house, and after the then existing balance on the loan is paid, you will be entitled to the remainder of any proceeds. Any pre-bankruptcy late payments will likely remain on your credit report for 7 years. The bankruptcy will also remain on your credit report as well.

    Gary’s Answer

    There are ways to dispute information provided to credit reporting agencies, but first you should find out if you in fact do owe the higher amount. There are several ways the amount of a judgment amount may increase. Without having an attorney review all the relevant papers you are wasting your time.

  • Can I get a car in my wife's name during the divorce, if I bought the car with my own money before the marriage?

    I bought a new 2004 vehicle and I put my girlfriend's name on it. I made all of the payments, and I can prove at least over 22000 came from my own banking accounting to the loan. We got married in 2012, after the car was paid off. Our agreement wa...

    Gary’s Answer

    From the facts stated, you gave your girlfriend a gift and paid for the gift prior to your marriage. Then you were married and now you are divorcing. You may have a claim against her for the repayment pursuant to the agreement, but you do not have a claim for the return of the car, which is her separate property.

    I filed for Legal Separation on December 24th and she was served January 7th. I am about to send in an amended package changing from legal separation to divorce. I haven't received anything from the courts saying she responded.

    Gary’s Answer

    Gary’s Answer

    If your ex-husband was obligated to pay the taxes as part of a marital settlement or judgment, you may be able to return to Court and obtain an order requiring your ex-husband to reimburse you for money he should have paid. You need to consult with a family law attorney and get a review of your situation and advice on how best to proceed.

  • Is service of discovery prior to a hearing on whether a First Amended Complaint should be granted legal admission?

    Will a defendant's service of discovery prior to the plaintiff's request to file a First Amendment Complaint be considered a legal admission that the Defendant is granting the original complaint to be amended?

    Gary’s Answer

    No. The discovery requests relate to the original complaint and the use of discovery does not admit anything.

    Gary’s Answer

    If you have no income you need to contact DCSS and/or file a request to modify child support. If you do not modify the current order you are expected to continue to pay the existing amount of court ordered child support.
