My wages are being garnished due to a lawsuit. I put a request in to have it dismissed but the other party contacted me asking me if I would agree to pay a less amount. What does this mean? Why are they trying to resolve out of court?
They are probably trying to minimize court attorney time. I am not sure if your exemption is valid and if you followed the right steps. Also, you may want to look at the bigger picture if you have other debt, and think about a bankruptcy filing. You need to contact an attorney here in Fort Myers for help.See question

You will need to look at the agreement to see what the terms are, and if you have to follow certain procedures before filing a lawsuit. Attorneys usually give free consultations to do this, here in the Charlotte/Lee County area.See question
It was suggested by 3 attorneys I have legal counsel help me do a chapter 13 Which I understand that. My house was scheduled for sheriff sale in Lee county for the 22 of Feb, I was told that everything was over and I should have filed bankruptcy...
Yes, a bankruptcy will stop a Sheriff Sale as long as you have not filed twice before. As to what happens after that, it depends on your financial circumstances and how you want to handle the mortgage. It is possible to save the home, but the process takes about 30-60 minutes to explain.See question

There was a recent court decision which allows lenders basically to foreclose at any time, based on any missed payment. So, the statute of limitations will not bar them from filing again.See question
Will I get these monies back in the sale of the home?
The law usually presumes that you will each get one half of the sale proceeds, absent a written agreement to the contrary. If $100,000 is more than half of the value, you may want to file a partition action and attempt to get your money back that way, through an accounting.See question

If this is homestead property (and it sounds like it is), you can do it one of 2 ways. You can reopen your bankruptcy case and file a motion to avoid judicial lien. You can also proceed as set forth in 222.01, which it sounds like you may have done, so that should be enough if you followed the procedures correctly. You may want an attorney to look at it and do it for you.See question

If your husband was on the mortgage note, and the mortgage was recorded properly, the lender has the right to foreclose if the mortgage is not paid. The wife would not be responsible for any deficiency after the sale, unless the wife also signed the note.See question
The Property is upside down about $70K and my spouse does not wish to be responsible anymore and wishes to file the Quit Claim Deed to remove her name, can that be done under this circumstance
If you are both on the note, transferring title does not get her off of the note. You may want to think about filing bankruptcy, which will get you off of the note and wipe out any deficiency after a foreclosure.See question
