    Contact an attorney as you should make a written demand on your former employer and then, if you aren't paid, seek to recover a statutory penalty and attorney fees in addition to the earned wages which haven't been paid.

    If the creditor has a judgment against you and you have not entered into an agreement with your creditor that your creditor will refrain from garnishments so long as you make monthly payments, your creditor is legally entitled to enforce its judgment by garnishment regardless of whether or not you are also making voluntary partial payments towards the satisfaction of this debt.

    It sounds like a scam. If you ignore him he'll probably go away. If, by chance, you hear from him simply tell him you'll deal with his insurance company and, when it makes a claim, you'll let your insurance company deal with it.

    You'll need to establish the agreement you had that he'd pay you back. Assuming you can do that then you may have a viable claim to recover the amount of your loan.

    Have you spoken to your neighbor about these issues? If not, you should. If that doesn't resolve the problem then you should discuss your problem with an attorney who can review the easement and advise you of your possible courses of action. In that regard you should understand that your present easement could be limited or lost if your neighbor's adverse actions restricting your easement rights such as planting trees impeding access and egress persist and you acquiesce and take no action to...

    If it's your attorney who isn't responding to your calls and emails, you should tell him or her that unless they begin to do so you'll complain to the Bar Association if he remains unresponsive for an unreasonable length of time. You might also want to consider retaining another attorney to handle your claim and obtain your file from your present attorney.

    As noted in the prior answer, it's impossible to determine whether or not your employer would be in violation of state and federal laws requiring reasonable accommodations for employees with disabilities from your question. The answer to that question depends on an assessment of the essential functions of any available position for which you might be qualified and whether you could perform those functions with or without reasonable accommodation. If your doctor has imposed restrictions on...

    You aren't required to have an attorney to seek a reduction or termination of your spousal support obligation but you'll almost certainly be better off if you retain an attorney to represent you for that purpose. Your bankruptcy will not discharge your spousal support obligation which will continue to accrue at least until you file for modification with the court. Therefore you should start proceedings to reduce or terminate your spousal support obligation as soon as possible.
