i recieved check 8/8//2016 it was sent to collections on 8/24/2016 what are attorney respsonsibility after settlement and what are my rights against law firm?
From what you are saying, I'm guessing that you resolved a debt in settlement, and you believe that the attorney should continue working for you to clean up the collection matter.
You should have a written contract with your attorney, and you probably have email communications. If you have a problem with your attorney, check those first. I'd send a written email/letter demanding that the attorney do what he promised. Hard to take sides without knowing everything.See question
My Dad owned 1% of a business with his parents. They ended up owing $100,000, when they then filed for bankruptcy it left my dad with the debt plus interest. He works for the oil fields in California so it is extremely slow and we can't afford for...
I assume that there is a lien and the IRS executed a levy on your dad's account. To undo this, you'll need to take one of the options the previous answer included.
To add to what she stated, I'd strongly suspect that the only way to really get it done is to file bankruptcy and provide a replacement lien and payment in a Chapter 13. Your dad needs to visit a bankruptcy attorney asap.See question
OK my bankruptcy, if I even file, would be very simple. It would be a chapter 7, because I own nothing but a car that in 20 years old and the cloths on my back. I got into trouble because of medical bills. Some credit cards were used to try to pa...
You should really take a chronology of the entire affair to a local attorney and get a real look at the entire deal. Make sure to answer the suit before the due date, so you don't get a default.See question
I filed for BK but did not include my soon to be ex. Due to his failure to make a court ordered payment of a vehicle, I surrendered it to bank. As it turns out the trustee has not released his interest in it and wants it but the bank released it b...
Call the attorney who helped you with the bankruptcy. If he does not respond, then call the trustee and just let him know about the deal. That's about all you can do. Beyond that, it would be hard to give you advice without diving into it.See question
I was sued by a debt collector over a debt that is almost 4 years old. I had been working with them and came to an agreement that was not really suitable for me, but I did sign an agreed judgment. However, the case was dismissed "Case dismissed...
Limitations run from the breach, but can be extended by your actions, such as paying on the debt. Quite often, people sign settlement agreements, thinking that they are agreed judgments. You should take whatever you have to a local attorney and let him sort through it. The initial consultation is too cheap for a real issue like this.See question
A creditor filed a Writ of Garnishment and Return at my bank and my accounts are now frozen. It states, "You have a right to regain possession of the property by filing a Replevy Bond. You have a right to seek to regain possession of the prope...
It is highly unlikely that you are successfully going to file a bond. You should talk to an attorney immediately. This will balloon into all sorts of problems in lots of situations. This kind of thing comes after a number of mistakes concerning a relationship with a creditor. The pain will continue out of control until you take serious action.See question
Is there a time frame from when a lawsuit has been filed to delivering the summons? I know there's a case against me for debt but I have not been served, how many attempts do they try and what is the process if they can't get a hold of me? I wor...
If you have not been served, then you have no due date. What you need to know is that the plaintiff can get what is called substitute service. If you are dodging, it won't work long.
The other responses have given you valid timeframes.
If you have been served, best to answer with some sort of denial.
An initial consultation with a local attorney would serve you well. People tend to think that avoiding the cost of an attorney is wise, when it is usually the most expensive approach.See question

Send them the evidence that you sent the phone back. It sounds like you have sent the phone back, and they have not received it. You might make a notarized statement to let them know that you sent it, and that you are willing to testify to the fact.
But yes, this may wind up a big mess.See question
I've been making payments, But I was aware there's a lawsuit against me, if I want to settle without going to court, do I need to keep in contact with the collection agency, or speak directly to the attorney who is handling this case?
You should contact the attorney who is suing you and work it out. They don't need judgments - they want money.See question

Have you contacted the police?
As others have stated, you must immediately contact everyone possible and let them know that it wasn't you. If you know who did it, that helps a lot.See question
