Answered an eviction notice judge asked to settle it didn't pay now the individual wants to put a lien on it
A creditor can file a lien against your assets if they are granted a judgment. That it is your only form of transportation is irrelevant. You need to see an attorney immediately to see what steps can be taken to stop this happening.See question
I filed for Bankruptcy back in November and was notified of it being discharged, but I noticed on my Credit Report some said Bankruptcy chapter 7 account closed by credit grantor bankruptcy petition or petition fixed rate. What does that mean?
It should say "Discharged in Bankruptcy." If it doesn't say that within about 90 days of your discharge, you need to contact the credit bureaus to dispute the reporting.See question
My mother thinks her property will be divided between all her children when she dies. Is that what the IE means my her name on the deed. I think it is already my sisters property, since it's in her name. Just wondering who's right.
You would need to have an attorney look at the deed to see exactly how the property is titled. If it is between your mother and your sister as "joint tenants with right of survivorship," then your sister would own it when your mother passes. If those words are not there, your mother's portion of the property (half of it) would pass according to her will (if she has one) or according to the intestacy laws of that state.See question
In June of 2016 my at the time girlfriend purchased furniture on credit. In July we broke up and she sold the furniture to me because she couldn't take it with her. We had a payment agreement that I would pay her x amount each month. I've been ...
You can't go back and change the past, but you could have made the payments directly to the creditor. You will not be liable for any of the amount due, but they may want to come get the furniture as it wasn't hers to sell to you. You may also be able to work out a deal with the creditor to give them some amount to keep the furniture as it's not worth anywhere near what she owed on it.See question
When listing a creditor on a claim in my petition, do I list the original creditor that appears on my credit report and then add notice to the agency that bought the debt from the original creditor? Or do I just list the agency that bought the deb...
Please reconsider doing this yourself. If you don't understand Georgia's exemptions, you could lose personal property and real estate in your bankruptcy that you may have been able to keep. Please consult an attorney. You can use Avvo's "Find a Lawyer" button.See question
Approx 12 months ago my ex and I filed chapter13. We've since divorced, in the divorce he was to be making the chapter 13 payments for the duration. I recently received notice that he filed chapter7 and that I now have to resume the chapter13 paym...
You really need to contact an attorney. The only way he could have filed Chapter 7 is to have severed your Chapter 13 case (so that you each have one) and then either dismissed his or converted his to a Chapter 7. Talk to an attorney now about managing your case. You do NOT want to do this yourself; you may be eligible to convert your case to a Chapter 7, too, but only an experienced attorney can tell you that based on your circumstances.See question
I tried to file bankruptcy but was prevented by someone purchasing a home in my name. This info appeared on my credit report.
Someone else purchasing a home in your name (which is fraud) will not prevent you from filing bankruptcy. That debt will be discharged just like (possibly) all of your other debts. If the person who purchased the home has equity in their home, the trustee may take their home and sell it to pay YOUR debts. You need to see a bankruptcy attorney to get this straightened out.

I filed chapter 13 October of last year (2015). I was in a car accident April of this year (2016). I was awarded $100,000 recently and now its being held up by the bankruptcy courts. My question is can they keep the whole settlement if my debt i...
Your attorney, if you have one, should be able to answer all your questions. If you don't have one, you need to get one. No, the courts cannot keep more than what you have in debts. After your debts are paid, they return the balance to you. And remember, even if you get a $100,000 settlement, you will only get what remains after attorney costs (usually 1/3) and payment of all medical expenses incurred in that accident.See question

Georgia Legal Services Program is sometimes able to arrange for an attorney to represent you pro bono (no fees, except possibly filing fees). Contact them for details. I do not recommend doing it yourself.See question
