Had a bankruptcy in 2015 and then my father died. Now the bankruptcy attorney is getting the money from my Dad's estate that would come to me as it was in the look ahead/look back period. Will most of the creditors try to split this tiny amount in...
If your real question is, will you get any of the money back from the bankruptcy trustee, that is very unlikely. Creditors do tend to file proofs of claim. Typically, companies like AMEX or Chase either sell or assign the accounts and then that buyer files the claim in the BK. Also, the bankruptcy trustees are good about charging their fees and expenses to make sure they get a big chunk of that money. So, unless NO creditors file a claim, that money is as good as gone.See question
My mom just got denied any assistance or programs from her bank, which is her mortgage lender. She had a chapter 13 plan that I believe she defaulted, which is a $1,000 balance owed to her trustee. She's a full-time college student that doesn't wo...
There is way more in that question to unpack to be able to answer whether your mom can file again. She needs to get with her attorney. If she doesn't have an attorney, she needs one at this point. There are dozen other questions that need to be addressed to answer whether mom can refile a chapter 13.See question
My daughter (a good student) does not get along with her Art teacher. My daughge the the teacher an issue with each other, and my daughter was written up with 2 days of ISS...the teacher then took a pic with her personal cell. My daughter ask...
Granted, not sure why the teacher would need a picture of the write up. Candidly, there probably isn't a whole lot you can really do about it. Instead of relying on your daughter talking to the principal, it might be better if you talked to the principal and raised your concerns.
At least on the federal level, the only law triggered is FERPA, but FERPA is an regulatory law, meaning a violation is handled by simply reporting the violation, there is no right to sue.
In the grand scheme of things, it is probably not that big a problem, but raise your concerns with the principal.See question
I am in the beginning stages of filing bankruptcy. I have talked to a few laywers already and got quotes for having them file for me, I have come to the realization that I cant afford to hire an attorney. I make minimum wage, work part time and ba...
Usually not. Since bankruptcy is federal law, not state law; the Federal system is more strict on what is referred to as unbundled legal services. In short, in bankruptcy, it is all or nothing. Either the attorney represents you for the full case or none at all.
Also, from the lawyer's perspective, if they "assist" you, the lawyer incurs the same liability and responsibility as if he was representing you for the entire case. Inevitably what happens is you screw something up, the trustee asks you if you had help and you say yes, I spoke with Mr. Jones, bankruptcy attorney. Then Mr. Jones gets and unfriendly call from the U.S. Trustee. The liability and hassle is not worth the few hundred dollars you pay for "informal" assistance.
Think of it like this, it would be like dragging your car into a mechanic, wheels off, just to have them put in and allign the brake pads, but then do the rest of the brake job. It is worth no one's time and energy.
Sorry to say.See question
What are good cause reasons that I can request postponement of mediation. Can you please provide examples as I need to buy time. My children are still in school I cannot disrupt and create anxiety while they are finishing the school.year. they...
Whatever your hardship is all you can do is tell the truth. Write your letter, send it, and the hearing officer will either accept it or reject it (most likely reject it). When it comes to any proceeding, generally, the only viable reason that generates postponement is a scheduling conflict that arose or was not foreseeable at the time the date was selected (last minute change in schedule, you were in a car accident and in the hospital, etc). You just wanting to delay foreclosure is not enough. So, the fact that your kids are in school, or your husband is jerk is not enough. That has no bearing on whether you can participate in mediation. Work schedule might work, but it depends where you are in the timeline and how far in advance you know your work schedule. For example, if mediation is March 14th, and you knew you would be working that day on Feb. 20th and you are now only seeking postponement, I doubt the officer will be sympathetic. But, if mediation is April 4th, and you request a postponement due to work schedule on Monday (March 13), and can document the schedule, you may get a postponement.

Without seeing the order, no way to say for certain. But odds are, if the education and residency terms are typical ones, you probably did violate the order. To the extent that matters now, who can say. The court will still do what is in the best interests of the child, but realize, what you think are the child's best interests and what the court determines them to be may be vastly different.See question

Yes, this is petty. They don't appear to want to talk to you, move on.See question
I am a self employed college consultant and want to advertise where I have successfully helped students get into colleges and I want to put those logos on my webpage.

I was checking my credit score and saw that Equifax shows that i filed bankruptcy back in 2012, says its discharged ch-7, responsibility is joint? I've never filed before so what does this mean? Is it affecting my score? I'm very confused.
First, there are 2 places a bankruptcy appears on a person's credit report. The first is in the public records section. The way you describe the entry, it doesn't sound like the BK is being reported as a public record. The second place where a bankruptcy is noted is by the individual creditor (trade line) report. As David says, it appears from your description that you might have been a co-signor on a loan and the primary borrower filed bankruptcy. If that is the case, you may still dispute the entry since you weren't the one who filed the bankruptcy, but there is also the question of the status of the debt as to you.
However, if the BK is appearing as a public record and you never filed BK, then that is clearly erroneous and you should dispute that entry with Equifax.See question
We talked to an attorney and he said not to talk to the cop is that accurate?
If you spoke to a local attorney (in person or on the phone) and was able to convey all the necessary information, and that attorney advised you not to talk to the police, then that is probably what you should do. We have no basis to second guess an attorney that has way more information than we do. Also, as Rixon points out, there is no continuity in the website. We have ZERO idea about your prior question.See question
