My husband and I live in an in-laws suite attached to his parents house. They initially filed chapter 13 bankruptcy because they could not pay the bills. They just filed chapter 7 bankruptcy because as we just found out they haven't paid bills in ...
They can take your money which looks like rent and play the horses if they wish. You cannot designate where rent money can go. In Georgia with no lease the landlord an terminate your stay by giving you 60 days notice.
I would pack everything and find a new place to live. The fighting and arguing may get worse and you may want to salvage your family relationship as much as possible. You may want to contact a bankruptcy attorney to evaluate your finances to see if this will help. Filing bankruptcy now will also stop any eviction.
I performed $4,300.00 of work on her house 9 months ago. We in writing, on my invoice agreed to 4 payments, monthly. She paid the first payment of $1,000.00 and since then excuse after excuse. I sent letter informing her of my intent to put a lien...
I'm sure you deserve to be paid for your work,but I'm also sure other creditors should be paid for their work as well. Contractors are usually fairly quick to place a lien on the property of a customer who fails to make payments. That option no longer exists for you at this point. Now you are treated as just another unsecured creditor and unless something really peculiar exists, you will recover nothing. contact an Attorney, file a claim and try to get through that helpless feeling.See question
Currently being evicted due to job loss. In process of finding low cost legal help to file for bankruptcy. We know can no longer afford current rental but need more time. Eviction has already been judged but haven't received writ of possessi...
I hope you have had a decent relationship with your landlord because a Bankruptcy to stop an eviction will not be helpful as you will still be evicted. Try to have a good conversation with your landlord and spell out the facts and hardship you will endure much as you did here. Hopefully you will get more time. In the meantime get as prepared to leave as soon as possible. You should consult a bankruptcy attorney to review other debts you may have and how to handle a deficiency on the lease.
I filed for bankruptcy shortly before getting married and my now wife is going to be filing in august. I have started to save a little money now that mine is done and I dont want to continue if im going to just lose it when she files.
Georgia is not a community property state, so it is possible that the husband may retain this asset if it is truly exclusively his. Other financial aspects of money in this account may affect whether or not the Husband will retain or lose some of this asset.
You need a bankruptcy Attorney to assist you with this issue.
Georgia resident Wife needs to file chapter 7 with $100000 unsecured debt. Husband is single owner of the home with $250000 equity. Can the court take husband's home to payoff creditors
This issue is more complex than what you see on its face.
Generally,one spouse is not liable for the other spouses debt if the non filing spouse is not a co debtor.
Chapter 7 will depend on the means test and with that much equity,we do not know the gross household income. The non filing spouses income is taken into consideration when filing for Bankruptcy and this particular couple may not be able to file at all. a good bankruptcy lawyer will need to review their entire financial picture in order to provide a competent assessment of this case. I suggest that a Bankruptcy Attorney should be hired to assist with this case.
I was served with a garnishment awhile back and after a year of struggling to pay my bills with the garnishment in place I switched jobs to make more money. However after starting my new job my wages have not been garnished. I am certainly gratefu...
I doubt jail is in your future,at least for this. I would hire a lawyer to try to settle this and remove the Garnishment. Sooner or later if the creditor wants to continue collecting on this debt, you will be found and the garnishment will continue. Depending on what other debt you may have,you may want to file a Chapter 7 Bankruptcy. You definitely need a lawyer to get you through this problem!See question
I filed for bankruptcy the end of October. My meeting of creditors was put off a few times because of illness. Will the trustee wait 60 days from this meeting or can he discharge sooner since my first scheduled meeting (that was changed) would h...
In your 341 notice it indicates the last date that creditors or anyone else can object to discharge. Part of the problem is very few clients read this notice. I tell my clients when the 341 meeting will take place. at the completion of the 341 I explain that if we receive no objections, look for a Discharge in 60 days plus a week for the Court to process the paperwork. This date is One day past the last date to file objections. if there is an objection during the waiting period,the objection must be resolved and if this happens quickly enough the Discharge will take place on time. I usually inform clients of their Discharge.See question
Looking into filing chapter 7
You must be careful with fees. some firms charge $2,000.00 to 3,000.00 and many are Bankruptcy Mills where the attorney spends very little time with the client. Your case may be handled by a Paralegal who will put your case together and the lawyer will appear at the 341 meeting and Court appearances. Then their are lawyers who will charge less but are there for you every step of the way.
The lawyer should be available to personally address questions and concerns and not just delegate everything to a law clerk or paralegal. You should look for someone who will fit your needs, do some research and do not let money be your primary consideration.
I am Senior citizen going thru a bankruptcy getting old vehicle fixed to sell and payoff my attorney and file. But should I wait to lease my new car?
Sorry this has happened to you and many older people with whom I work have issues with older vehicles.
I never recommend new debt while in Bankruptcy, but there is nothing to prevent it. In your case,you will need reliable transportation so you may move around.
I believe there are some smaller companies who will rent to you. Just make sure they are not taking advantage of you in the leasing agreement. I would have someone review any agreement with you.
My house is in foreclosure I'm trying to figure out if I can strip the 2nd which is a line of credit because the bank that handled the line of credit can't find any information on us I don't know if they re conveyed the property or not still tryin...
Under the circumstances you describe you may not strip this lien. You said you filed a Chapter 7, so your Attorney should have the ability to explain this.See question
