My personal injury lawyer has informed me that he will not be doing anymore work on my case. He said if i don't agree with the settlement he can get me, then i can seek further council. I asked for my case files and there is absolutely no negotiat...
Your current attorney just basically told you to find another attorney. For reasons that we do not know, your attorneys seems to have lost faith in you or the case...or both. Get the file and start looking for a new attorney.See question
I was checking court proceedings date by date. (I do not know- how I landed there). I saw that: My attorney was "RETAINED" Opposite party;s attorney was "PRO/SE" WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE? PLEASE?
You have an attorney. You opponent does not.See question
Can I request the judgment rein not be renewed due to hardship? After the ten years can I have the judgment removed from my credit report? Am I still respibsible for the debt owed if I suddenly have. The means to pay? Should I just file bankruptc...
Hardship is not a defense to renewal of judgment. The only defense to renewal of a judgment that I am aware of is that it was filed to late. You should see a bankruptcy attorney.See question
Ok so I've had a free in person consultation with 2 of the foreclosure attys that are both on this site .(massachusetts) one says we need a forensic audit of mortgage in entirety to look for fraudulent paperwork ($2500) and possibly fight servicer...
I'm going to be blunt: it sounds like you need to start looking for a new place to live. You filed for Chapter 13 bankruptcy, presumably to propose a catch up plan to get current on the arrears. Something went wrong and the lender apparently got permission from the judge to start or continue the foreclosure process. I don't know when wrong, it sounds like mistakes were made in the BK process.
$2500 sounds like a lot for a forensic audit. And for what purpose? Do you really think that audit will turn up some smoking gun that would really allow you to challenge the foreclosure process? Do you plan on suing to get a loan modification?
It is gut check time...what is your end game here? It sounds like you can't afford the house.See question
My BK lawyer is advising me to wait to short sell the house until the Bk is discharged. However, my father is trying to short sale the house now ( I am on title and borrower of house) and he has a lawyer who is telling me to short sale the house n...
I would listen to your bankruptcy attorney,. You father's attorney probably doesn't practice bankruptcy law and your attorney will know more about BK law then your dad's attorney.
Your house is part of the bankruptcy estate and subject the automatic stay. Once the case and discharged, the home will revert back to you. Until that happens, you would either need a court order approving the sale or an formal abandonment of the property by the trustee. Most of my Chapter 7 cases last less than 4 months, so you should tell dad to cool his jets.
There's probably nothing wrong with marketing the property, but don't plan on closing escrow until the case is over or after getting a court order.See question
i read on the net of a puzzling rule: if your income is below the median in my state ( POORER, LESS ability to pay) you paradoxically get LESS time to pay off the obligations( 36 mos ), but if you are over this median , you get MORE time , and the...
You are missing the point of the rule. If someone files for Chapter 13, their gross income will determine the "applicable commitment period", which will either be the minimum of 36 months or the maximum of 60 month. In theory, people with higher income should pay more back. They are REQUIRED to make 60 payment. Below-median income debtor only have to make 36 payments, but they have the options of offering a longer plan to get lower payment.
The payment about is based mostly in ability to pay. Higher income debtors must pay over a longer period of time.See question
I sued someone who defaulted in paying me rent and I won the judgement in 2008 in the state of MI. Can I still try and garnish their wages since they are now working?
You need to speak with a Michigan attorney, but it appears that smalls claims judgments expire after 6 years and other judgments expire after 10 years. You can renew the judgment. Here is more information: http://courts.mi.gov/self-help/center/collect/pages/default.aspxSee question
Of i have assets how long can a chapter 7 bankruptcy last
Every case is different. It can take years to locate and sell all of the assets if the case is really complex or if the trustee has a heavy workload. Most Chapter 7 cases with assets conclude within a year, but I had one case that last 6 years. That 6 years was mostly because the trustee was busy on other cases.See question
