    • Selected as best answer

    I agree with the attorneys who have already answered here. However you also may have certain consumer law rights under the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, FDCPA if this debt has passed its expiration date. You may also want to look at your credit report to see how this debt ahs been reported as you may have rights under the Fair Credit Reporting Act. FCRA. Our offices handle both of these areas of law. If we can be of any further assistance, you can contact any attorney that answered your question, as well as use the Find Attorney feature on this site.

    In this country, anyone can sue anyone over anything whether or not it happened or didn't happen. Of course, it sounds as though no reasonable attorney would take on her case. That does not mean that she cannot sue pro se.

    My ex has informed me that she has looked into certain aspects that remain private in my lif and others. Like accounts email accounts phone numers and things attached to those numbers ext. She has either hacked her way into those of has had a cop ...

    Max’s Answer

    It is very important that you discover whether she actually has access to that personal information and whether or not your identity is being manipulated on the internet. I do not believe you need an attorney, but you need someone who is tech savvy in this area. I work with a gentleman who has helped me out in circumstances similar to yours. If you can prove that she did "hack" your information, your next step is to contact the police.

    The other attorneys here have already answered and summed up all the issues. You had a contract with the attorney. It was a contingency contract. If he got you paid from his efforts, it is incumbent upon you to honor your agreement.

  • See "My Situation" Question box does not allow enough characters for my question.

    Considering filing for Bankruptcy, (CH13). Should I simply stop paying down my credit card debt now or should I wait until I formally file for bankruptcy? Should I contact the credit card companies and inform them that I'll be filing for bankrupt...

    Max’s Answer

    It is imperative that you retain an experienced Connecticut Bankruptcy attorney. My office focuses on bankruptcy and would be able to answer all the questions that you can not fit here, but I would urge and caution you no to try and do this on your own. It is tantamount to attempting to change your transmission on your car without any mechanical experience. You risk far too much and most good bankruptcy attorneys will not want to touch an already filed, problematic case to undue damage you may do. Use AVVO's Find a Lawyer tool to select a qualified attorney.

  • Is it possible to include student loans in bankruptcy and if not what options, do I have to deal with these student loans? Thanx

    I filed for bankruptcy last January with a law firm. I included my mortgage ($80k) and about $25-30k in other debt. I currently have private and federal student loans. My private loans total about $60k and my federal over $25k. I was told by a...

    Max’s Answer

    My firm offers student loan counseling, however I would caution you that the level of hardship you need to reach in order to discharge student loans in a bankruptcy is exceptionally high. It rises almost to the level of full incapacitation. There are other things an attorney can do to assist you with student loans, but you may wish to contact the loan companies themselves and gather information about any of their repayment programs that may benefit you.

    Max’s Answer

    Your concern should be whether you were able to get an eligibility certificate. If you have already turned in all the paperwork, I would imagine it was included and you should be well on your way. However, if not, Pursuant to Connecticut General Statutes Sec. 29-36f. (b) The Commissioner of Public Safety shall issue an eligibility certificate unless said commissioner finds that the applicant:(2) has been convicted of a felony or of a violation of subsection (c) of section 21a-279, section 53a-58, 53a-61, 53a-61a, 53a-62, 53a-63, 53a-96, 53a-175, 53a-176, 53a-178 or 53a-181d; (3) has been convicted as delinquent for the commission of a serious juvenile offense, as defined in section 46b-120; (4) has been discharged from custody within the preceding twenty years after having been found not guilty of a crime by reason of mental disease or defect pursuant to section 53a-13; (5) has been confined in a hospital for persons with psychiatric disabilities, as defined in section 17a-495, within the preceding twelve months by order of a probate court; (6) is subject to a restraining or protective order issued by a court in a case involving the use, attempted use or threatened use of physical force against another person; (7) is subject to a firearms seizure order issued pursuant to subsection (d) of section 29-38c after notice and hearing; (8) is prohibited from shipping, transporting, possessing or receiving a firearm pursuant to 18 USC 922(g)(4); or (9) is an alien illegally or unlawfully in the United States.
    I hope this helps answer your question. Some misdemeanors can prevent you from being eligible.
