I have a civil judgment against me in the amount of 4000 and change from a former landlord. The judgment is approximately 7 years old. Can they put a lien on personal bank account to collect also how long does a judgment affect your credit? I als...
Yes they can certainly levy your account if they have a judgment against you. Judgments are good for 20 years and can be renewed after that. If they have not sued you on the credit card accounts from 10 years ago, they won't be able to now, the statute of limitation is 6 years.
If you need to file bankruptcy or not you need to discuss with a bankruptcy lawyer. There are many factors that go into this decision.See question
When I was unemployed I made payments to multiple law firms and never received a balance. it seemed like every 4 to 6 months a different office was taking over the loan.
It depends on what kind of loan this was. Most loans are discharged in bankruptcy however some loans such as student loans are not. You should schedule a consultation with a local bankruptcy attorney to discuss your situation as a whole. There are many options in dealing with debt. Most attorneys including myself provide free consultations either by phone or in person.See question

I have a condo in NJ. It has been in foreclosure now for 6-1/2 years. I am still paying the association dues or face being sued. I am not obligated for the debt of the condo since I filed for bankruptcy. The loan has been sold over a few times...
this is a complicated issue, i would need to look at all the facts of your case before deciding if you have a case against the lender. generally speaking the lender has 6 years from the default (date when you missed your first payment) to sue you for foreclosure. If they did not sue you within those 6 years, the statute of limitation may have ran and they will no longer be able to do so.
you may be able to bring an action for quiet title in the Chancery Division of Superior Court to get a title free and clear of the mortgage. However if the lender has already sued you within those 6 years the statute of limitation does not apply and they can continue with the case. the case may have been dismissed at some point which raises other issues. there may be issues with the chain of title and if the current lender suing you doesn't have clear title you may be able to get the case dismissed.
this is a complicated situation and you should really at least consult with an attorney to find out what your options are and how to proceed. most attorneys including myself offer free consultations for cases like this. good luck with your case!See question
My answer was marked contested and sent to Burlington County. Trial Date was set but Plaintiff asked for Summary Judgment and it was granted with my answer Stricken. The Issues I raised were not addressed. The case was returned to the Office of ...
Mr. Higgins is correct, you should approach this with a mind as to what you want to do with the property. In most foreclosure cases the summary judgment being granted is the usual outcome when the foreclosing party has all the proper documents to foreclosure. So unless you have so clear cut proof of fraud, it is unlikely that the court would vacate the summary judgment.
there are still many options available however depending on what your final intention regarding the property is. if you want to keep the property you can file for chapter 13 bankruptcy and catch up on the missed payments over a period of several years. If you are just looking to stay in the house for a longer period of time there are options for that as well.
schedule a free consultation with an attorney to discuss your options.
My ex husband filed the motion to try and take custody of my son away we have 50/50 currently and he hates that I am now in a relationship with a women! I need help because I have no money for a lawyer
that is correct, contact your husband's lawyer (or your husband if he is filing pro se) and see if he will agree to an adjournment. Then call the court to see if they will agree to the adjournment. Usually this is not a problem.See question

you should really consult an attorney prior to signing any property settlement agreement. There are many things to consider and you want to be sure that there are no problems down the road once you sign it and get divorced. since you do not provide any details regarding your agreement, i am not sure anyone can answer your question without actually reading the agreement.See question
Marriage took place in CA. Currently we both live in NJ, and have for several years since. I do not wish to see my spouse period. We are both compliant with the divorce. Can paperwork take care of this, or is a court appearance mandatory?
you can do an uncontested divorce in which case only one of you will have to attend court. In NJ you cannot get divorced without at least one person going to court. If you have all the issues figured out it will be a fairly cheap and quick uncontested divorce. Most lawyers charge a flat rate for this type of service, usually under $1000See question
