  • What happens to my paypal account in chapter 7?

    I have a paypal credit balance of about $2700. If this is discharged will paypal come after any balance I have in my business account. I use this to pay business expenses and to invoice my customers for services. If my business account stays open ...

    Jacques’s Answer

    After reading your question, the reply by Attorney Bunch and then all of the comments, I am "confused" by the "business account" used by your customers to pay you. I really suggest that you contact an experienced bankruptcy attorney, and there are several, in the Reading area to consult with the benefit of the attorney-client privilege to fully reveal the facts. AVVO is a public forum where you do not have an attorney-client privilege to protect your disclosures.

    I have changed the area of practice to Bankruptcy and Debt since it is impossible to determined whether or not you are eligible to file a Chapter 7 under applicable requirements.

    Good Luck!

    I agree with Attorney Zellinger. With no assets you are wasting a lot of time over nothing.

  • How can we get someone to stop acting like he owns everything that belongs to his mother?

    Father died in 2013. Mother still alive and sound mind. She left all property and buildings to me. My brother lives in the back yard for 15yrs. In a mobile home that he was repeatedly told to move and didn't, instead he added on so it couldn't be ...

    Jacques’s Answer

    Since your mother is still alive and competent, it is her right, not yours, to take whatever steps are taken to have her son cease and desist his present conduct. My suggestion would be for you mother to contact the Office of Aging in the county where your mother lives and ask them to investigate the situation as Elder Abuse. If your mother refuses, then possibly you should consider MYOB or go to the Office of Aging and seek an investigation.

    Good Luck

    Jacques’s Answer

    Suggest that that the P.O.A. contact a Pennsylvania Attorney who practices actions for a protective order in the County where your father resides or where the PFA is pending. I am unable to advise you as to whether the POA will have to travel from Tenn.

    You are correct that you were not contacted properly by written Notice under Pennsylvania Law. Suggest you contact an attorney to assist you in securing a copy of the Will.

  • See questions below.

    How would a beneficiary named in a Will go about verifying what in fact was willed to them? Also, does the beneficiary/ beneficiaries have the right to see the Will, and is it procedural that a Will is read with all of the named beneficiaries pres...

    Jacques’s Answer

    Within a reasonable time after death, the Will should be probated in the Register of Wills Office of the decedent's residence. If the decedent's residence was Leighton then the place for probate is in Carbon County at the courthouse in Jim Thorpe. If it has been probated, you can request a copy from that office. If the Will has not been probated and a reasonable time has past since date of death, you should consult with a probate attorney in your area to force probate.

    There is no procedural requirement that a Will is read with all of the named beneficiaries present..

    I did change the area of practice to Probate.

  • Bankruptcy Lawyer Withholds Filing Petition

    to alert a creditor that I was filing bankruptcy. Creditor filed to make the judgment a judgment lien. Bankruptcy lawyer told me he was filing the petition the day It was completed in his office. Instead lawyer waited a couple of days to file p...

    Jacques’s Answer

    I do not see anything you need to do except make sure your Statement of Affairs and Schedules reflect the judgment entered prior to filing. Make sure your attorney moves to have the judgment lien removed since it was filed within 90 days of filing the petition.

    Jacques’s Answer

    Take you papers to the local Magisterial District Judge's office in the area where your debtor lives. Before you begin suit check out the costs of filing and service and weigh that against the maximum judgment you would recover, keeping in mind that securing the judgment is the first step. Can the Debtor pay the judgment if you have to spend more funds to collect it.

    Good Luck
