Waiting for payment of a workmen's comp check for settlement. Will my bad credit be withdrawn from the settlement
If a collection agency has obtained a judgment against you they cannot garnish your Workers Comp settlement directly. They CAN, however, garnish a bank account that has finds in it. The way to protect the proceeds of your Workers Comp claim is to open a brand new bank account and put ONLY the Workers Comp settlement into it. That way, if a creditor attempts to garnish those funds you can object to the garnishment, claim the exemption to which you are entitled, and trace the funds back to their source. If the money is mingled with dollars from other sources then they will not remain protected.See question
my ex and i split 3 years ago. apparently less than a year ago he took out a big loan in his new girlfriends grandmothers name am i liable to pay for this in our divorce?
As long as you are not a borrower the lender cannot collect from you. The judge in divorce court could order you to pay singer or all of his separate debt, but it seems HIGHLY UNLIKELY based upon what you are saying.
The best way to protect yourself in a divorce proceeding is to hire a lawyer to represent you.See question
The box is check for the garnishment weekly. But the calculations are for the "first pay period" deductions? Is this amount going to be deducted every week?
Without knowing how frequently you are paid, or seeing the numbers and calculations it is hard to say. A garnishment is taken out of every paycheck, so if you are paid weekly then yes, it will be deducted each week.
Once you meet a minimum earnings threshold then a garnishment will generally be for 25% of your earnings after necessary payroll deductions (income tax withholding, FICA, Medicare) are taken into account.
I received a summons for a court date from a debt collector. I did not have enough notice to get off of work and I am still waiting for the proof of debt to be sent to me. I called the courthouse for instructions on how I could change the date and...
If you have defenses to the lawsuit then you must file an Answer prior to the court date and serve it on opposing counsel. Then the court will set a new date for a contested trial. If you don't have any defenses to raise, then the court date will be a mere formality and the collection agency will get their judgment regardless of whether you appear or not.See question
I've recently moved back to Nebraska and started a new job where I can't take off for. Can I use a Nebraska lawyer even though I'm filing in Colorado?
No. You can wait until you have lived in Nebraska for 91 days and then file your case there.See question
I am from Colorado and did a stupid thing and brought pot into another state. Do I need to report that?
If you owe ant debts as a result of the criminal matter then the person or entity that you owe must be listed as a creditor. If there is no debt yet, then there is no creditor.
BUT there is a question in the Statement of Financial Affairs that asks about any legal proceedings to which you have been a party within the last 12 months and you will need to list the criminal case under that question.
I don't have a house or a car, I only have credit card debt. Just wondering if I should file myself and save money.
Saving yourself some money may or may not be the actual result of filing on your own without the benefit of legal advice. Many people file themselves and then are unexpectedly required to turn over assets and cash to a trustee. Only an experienced bankruptcy lawyer can advise you as to how and when to file your case to get the most benefit possible from your bankruptcy filing.See question
I have s vechile that a friend said he would make the payments on he took off t okk Florida and never made another payment on it. He now has had an accident am i liable for all?
Yes, since you are the borrow you are the one responsible for passing the loan, not your friend. Since you are the registered owner of the vehicle, you are the one responsible for keeping it insured.
If you can find him, you may have claims to bring against him for his failure to pay IF you can prove that there was an actual agreement, but you are the one obligated to the lender.
Hopefully you kept your own insurance on the car, unless you were provided with some proof that he had his own adequate coverage.See question
E walk away with no credit impact, more than the bankruptcy?
As long as you are sure that you did not sign a reaffirmation agreement you ate free to "walk away" from the vehicle loan. Be sure that you get a signed receipt if you do a voluntary surrender. Also be sure to keep the car insured until it is back in the pain of the lender.See question
