I won a class action against a large mortgage company in Federal Court, but the mortgage company refuses to remove the foreclosure off of my credit report, I have all documentation regarding the outcome of the case and the account which was comple...
Okay...As already stated, you should probably contact the attorneys that handled the class action. As a factual point, the preliminary question is what is the status of the foreclosure? About all we can assuredly assume from your question is that a foreclosure was started. Beyond that, without knowing what the class action was about, the relief granted, and the current status of the home that was subject to foreclosure; we can't even speculate as to an answer.
Credit reporting is not terribly complicated, but the remedies suck. The credit report entry is either true and accurate or it is isn't. If it isn't, then you may dispute the entry with credit reporting agencies under FCRA and go through that process. I can envision several scenarios where the borrowers win a class action but that victory would have no impact on the borrowers credit report.See question

Sounds like you have an attorney. We know nothing about the underlying case, issues, procedural posture, or anything that would allow us to provide any sort of informed speculation as to what may be happening nor what options you might have. Sorry.See question
My son's middle school photographer just posted a link to his site which contained every school portrait taken! He also did it for the high school a couple of weeks ago. Many students took screen shots of other kids and used them for bullying pu...
Understand, the 2 issues are separate. The photographer, whether right or wrong in posting the photos, is in no way legally responsible for how other kids use those photos. As for the posting of the photos online, you will need to look at the school policy. You didn't mention whether the schools in question are public or private. At my kid's school, you have to specifically notify (opt in) the school that no photo's are to be published publically. However, my sense is the higher up in grade you go, the fewew options yo have.
But, it couldn't hurt to contact the principal or vice principal and inquire.See question
I took out the student loans 8 years into the marriage and we divorced 7 years after I received my degree. Prior to the divorce we filed bankruptcy which sent the student loan payments into "slow mode" for a year or so.....We defaulted on the ban...
First, your question is more a Divorce and Separation question than a bankruptcy and debt question; so I am updating the practice area designation. You don't say how recently you were divorced, but it does sound like the final decree has been entered and some time has since passed. This should have been dealt with at the time of the divorce. Some more information is needed to determine if you have a legal basis to request a modification to the decree based on something you knew about at the time of the decree.
Schedule a consultation with a family law attorney to discuss your options. That is really the only way to get a clear answer to your question.See question

As for type of attorney, you would want to find a consumer advocate/litigation attorney (and they are few and far between, but in Southern CA, there are some). Candidly, the case is probably not worth an attorney's time and effort. Whatever damages you might have, are not that significant, to be honest with you. For example, the credit reporting issues get fixed by simply correcting and deleting the negative entries. Unless you applied for a loan (for a specific purpose, i.e. mortgage) and were turned down, there are no real damages related to the credit report. Technically, there is no error on the credit report--from the leasing company's perspective--payments came due and weren't paid. Technically, the credit report entries are true and accurate. What you get is a court order directing the credit report entries get corrected. Since you didn't actually make the lease payments that came due, you are not out that money; so there are no actual financial damages. You have, what I term, time and hassle, damages, but those don't amount to much when there are little to no actual financial harm.
I am not saying don't speak to an attorney. Definitely do so, but my sense is that either an attorney would not be interested in taking the case or you will not want to put up the amount of money required to hire an attorney.See question
I just want to know, if I can start debt collection agency from India without being present in the country (USA). I also want to know about licensing procedure.
The short answer to your question is both no and yes. The answer is no in the sense that debt collection is fairly heavily regulated at the individual state level. You will need some sort of physical presence in the United States to conduct business as a debt collection agency. That physical presence need not be substantial and the bulk of operations (the call center) could be located overseas. However, you will need both a physical and legal presence in the U.S.
As for licensing procedure, that level of advice is beyond the scope of this forum. If you really wish to pursue this, you need to speak to a U.S. based attorney. Generally, unless you have millions of dollars ready to invest to buy bad debt portfolios that are nationwide in scope, you will want to narrow down in which states you operate.See question
Hanover high school pa .what are the laws? And a different older girl telling her to kill herself. Looking for advice. Cops where at the school and parents involved.But new is the girl telling her to kill herself.
What you describe sounds like:
Indecent assault which includes any sexual or intimate touching for the purpose of arousing or gratifying sexual desire. If the minor is younger than 13, this offense is a first degree misdemeanor; which incurs a fine of at least $1,500 (and up to $5,000), up to five years in prison, or both. If the minor is at least 13, it is a second degree misdemeanor, which incurs a fine of at least $500 (and up to $5,000), up to two years in prison, or both.
Who are you in the affair? Are you the parent of the 12 year old? Unless you have some directly connection (i.e. you are a parent of one or the other kid involved), there isn't anything for you to do (or can do).See question

The issues are separate. Whether you can have your debt forgiven is up to the Dept. of Education. Note, that assumes your loans are federal student loans. If your some or all your loans are private student loans, you are screwed (sorry to say).
You may try to sue the school for "damages," but will you ever actually see a penny from doing so, how knows (probably not).See question
Custody papers say '' the mother is allowed , supervised visitation,, Fridays after school until Monday when school start back. Does this mean mother is responsible for getting her to school or can I say bring her home in time to catch bus?
Who drafted the document; certainly does not sound like a lawyer put that together. Frankly, we cannot give any reliable legal interpretation without having the entire context of the document. However, I would say that the clause gives the Mother a choice. The mother has the option to (1) take daughter to school on monday, or (2) return daughter to you to take the bus. Also, I do not believe the phrase gives you the option to force one or the other (we would need to see the entire document for context to try to make the argument that you can force one the options).
Lastly, this question was listed under Education Law, but I have updated the practice area to Child Custody as that is the more apt area of law.See question
