I have a judgment lien (fi fa) recorded in July 1999. The property owner had conveyed to a niece in April 1999 with a life estate. She passed away in 2014. We are being asked to cancel our lien and quitclaim the deed. I thought the lien attached...
I assume that in the April 1999 transaction the judgment-debtor conveyed the property to the niece and reserved a life estate for herself (i.e., the judgment-debtor). I also assume that the April 1999 transaction was properly filed of record.
Legally speaking, when the fifa was recorded three months later, the judgment lien would have attached to the property of the judgment-debtor, i.e., the life estate. My understanding is that, legally speaking, the fifa would not reach the property interest of the niece, i.e., the niece's remainder interest in the property. It is not so much that the judgment lien "dies," it simply only attached to the interest of the judgment-debtor.
Two other points need to be mentioned. 1) It may be too late to raise the issue, but the transfer months before the judgment (i.e., with knowledge of the impending judgment or at least knowledge of its possibility) suggests that one should look into whether the transfer could be challenged as an improper transfer (especially if the transaction was a gift); and 2) If they are taking the position that your lien needs to be cancelled and a quitclaim deed executed, the seems a sort of admission that your lien does still have some impact on the property, and that the release of the lien should have some value for which they would pay.
These are all complicated matters that you should retain counsel to consider.See question
I am 100% disabled. I paid Fed Loan $9,586.00 and under the laws of being disabled I am entitled to get my money back.
You need to speak with an attorney to help you evaluate your claim and help you assert the rights you have to a refund. I suggest you look for an attorney that handles student loan issues at www.naca.net.See question

You need to hire an attorney immediately. If you think you cannot afford one, then you should find out how the court where your charges are pending handles indigent defense appointments to see if you qualify.
Avvo is a very poor substitute for actually having an attorney. The attorney that you hire will learn about your case and will be able to correct you where you misunderstand the process so that you can make the best decision from what will probably be a set of poor options.
The decisions to plead guilty or to choose a bench trial are all decisions that should be made with experienced counsel.See question
I filed a suit in small claims court against my former employer. We reached a settlement and they asked that I dismiss the case with prejudice. I was told a check would be released upon notification from the court that the case had been dismissed....
You can not refile the same case that you dismissed with prejudice.
But you can file a new case based on the settlement agreement. It would be better if you had documents (even emails help) that memorialize the terms of the settlement, but if the agreement was just a verbal (or handshake) agreement, you can still sue on that. It may devolve into a "swearing match" where you say one thing and he says another.See question

I got a title loan on a car I was still paying on.. I recently fell on hard times on both payments and carmart wants me to surrender the car tomorrow.. But what happens when the title loan company wants the car and car Mart has it? FYI.. carmart g...
If the seller lets you have the title when you start paying for the car, does the paper work actually say that there is a security interest in the car? There needs to be the creation of a security interest, or else the seller can't take the car or tell you to bring it back. (It can still sue you for not paying.)
If there is a security interest in the car, did you tell the title pawn when you got the money from them? If the title pawn knew it was in second place, then there shouldn't be a problem.
If both the seller and the title pawn are expecting to be able to take the car if you don't pay, there may very well be trouble. You may have to decide which one to try to pay off and give the car to the other one. You will need to take into account the relative balances of the two obligations and the fact that the title pawn is non-recourse.See question
Car was repoed for 490.00 behind and only 160.00 that was 37 days past due. Now they added towing fees of 735.00. Is there something I can do to get my car back???
I am not sure what you mean by "acceptance of collateral." In my experience, that phrase usually means that the creditor keeps the collateral in full satisfaction of the debt. The creditor may be motivated to attempt to "accept" the collateral if you have equity (i.e., value is greater than remaining debt obligation).
You have the right under Georgia law to pay off the car and get it back. If you don't have the ready cash, you can try to arrange a new loan to pay off the balance of the old loan.
Often the creditor will let you catch up on the payments you are behind (and costs like towing &c.). But that is a matter of the creditor's policy. The law does not make them take the late payments.
The $735 in towing fees seems really high to me. Whether you get the car back or not, you may want to have your documents (including the "10 day letter" that the creditor will send you after the repo) reviewed by a consumer protection attorney.See question

If the company is using an autodailer (or a pre-recorded voice in out-going calls), then you would have the right to sue for continuing to call after your told them not to call. While these systems are ubiquitous in the collections and telemarketing world, your typical web-designer may not be using one.
As far as a generalized, common law action for harassing telephone calls, there is no bright-line rule of how many calls are too many. Unless there are multiple calls daily for a week or more, your best remedy may be to let them speak with your voice mail.
You may want to speak with an attorney, but unless there is evidence that the calls are calculated to harass (i.e., the calls come in at 2:30 a.m., etc.), an attorney may not be interested unless you thought it was important enough to pay by the hour.See question
Hello, I'm being sued by Portfolio Recovery Associates for an old credit card account. My first time defaulting on the account was in June 2010 after my APR was increased to 29.40%. I made intermittent payments between June 2010 and June 2012, b...
Most judges in Georgia apply a 6 year statute of limitations to credit card accounts. It sounds like whether or not this case was filed within the statute of limitations is just a matter of days one way or the other. It may depend on the exact date that payment was due in June 2010 and the exact date that suit was filed.
But there are more complications. In your favor is the fact that you were not served for six months. Against you, there is the fact that you made some more payments after you defaulted. These require nuanced arguments regarding their impact on the statute of limitations.
You should consult with a consumer protection attorney. Yours does not sound like an easy case. But, the good news is the that most people sued by PRA or other similar debt-buyers will have other defenses as well.See question
