I filed chapter 7 bk & it was discharged a few months ago one of my creditors got a judgment before I filed & placed a lien on my home I had them listed on my bk they are telling me i have to pay them to have it removed what can I do?
Your bankruptcy discharge gets rid of the personally obligation to repay the debt, but it does not automatically void judgment liens. In order to qualify for removal of the lien, you must proper claim the property as exemption and the lien must impair your ability to claim the exemption. if you meet that criteria, you can file a motion under Section 522(f) of the Bankruptcy Code to remove the lien.
This service is not normally included in a bankruptcy and your comments make it sound like you didn't have one to file your case. if you did have an attorney, go back to that same attorney for help. if you didn't have one, get one. This type of motion is more complicated than it sounds.See question
I owe AMEX in credit card debt. Now they filed a lawsuit. Will they negotiate?
AMEX is tough as others have noted, but it is not impossible. Sometimes their decisions are just bizarre. I had a case once where my client owned over $20,000 and offered a lump some of $10,000, but refused to consider negotiating until after they got a judgment. Their attorney never responded to any of my settlement communications.
Later on, a third party debt collector contacted my client directly and they settled the claim for $6,000.

I am purchasing a condominium in FL and it is a cash purchase which is a gift from family. I have regular income and provided all related and other requested documents to the association.. I filed a chapter 7 bankruptcy which was discharged in 201...
I'm going to move this over to real estate because it is really more of a Florida real estate law question than it is a bankruptcy issue.
To answer the bankruptcy portion, there is nothing in the Bankruptcy Code that would prohibit the condo association from rejecting you. However, you want to find out from Florida real estate attorney of the condo association can reject you at all.
HOA law is really a niche of real estate law, so that's why you'll want to find a local attorney. I used to represent HOAs in California and it was extremely rare for the HOA to have any say in who could be an owner or occupant. The big exception would be developments that are for people who are 55 and older.
So it boils down to this...does Florida law allow condo associations to reject owners at all? For that, you'll need a response from a Florida attorney.See question

The only thing I would add to the other responses would be to contact the lawyer referral service for the San Diego County Bar Association. They screen cases and might be able to direct to someone that can help.See question
In general, how long should you wait to hear from your attorney to file a default judgment after the clerk has entered a default entry?
That will very from court to court depending on the staffing and workload of the court where you filed the lawsuit. You really should just call up your attorney or the attorney's assistant for an update.See question

As other attorneys have noted, you need to see a local real estate attorney. I don't practice law in Florida, but I'm not seeing why you think you have a claim to quiet title against the current owner of the loan. You didn't pay the money back and shouldn't expect to get a free house.See question
This question is concerning a male co-worker. There has been a conflict of interest with his own online business while at work. This week, he has been bringing a dog to work, which I don't believe is sanitary as we have food prepared in the same...
You haven't described anything that could even remotely be considered sexism or anything illegal. Your complaint about the dog sounds rather petty as well. You also haven't described anything to indicate that you've been discriminated against.
If you don't like the working conditions, I suggest you look for another place to work. Being laughed at and called a "tattle-tale" because of your complaints tells me that they don't think much of your nor your value to the company. As the saying goes, the best time to look for a job is when you still have one. Keep complaining and they might cut you loose.See question
That's really up to the lender. You apparently aren't the original borrow and the lender probably has the discretion to work you or demand full payment.See question
